Hair Treatments - Garnier - Fructis Repairing Treat with Papaya Extract

2.0

4 months ago

As a hair mask or conditioner, this works okay, but is nothing to write home about. As a leave-in, it leaves much to be desired -- oddly enough, it left my hair feeling drier. The smell is also an issue; it smells wonderfully fruity when you put it on, but by the next day, it smelled off.

Cleansers - Jergens - All-Purpose Face Cream

1.0

5 months ago

This was a no go for me. I used it first for makeup/sunblock removal, and found that it stung my eyes and resulted in milia and perioral dermatitis. Since I still had a huge tub of this stuff left, I tried using it for a moisturizer after shaving my legs, and found that it broke me out in a shaving rash. Tried it on my hands and feet, and it just left them feeling greasy but not soft or hydrated.

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Nail Polish Colors

2.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

All that I like about the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line is the array of colors. Otherwise, this formula is a no-go.

First, the brush. It's so oversized that I find it impossible to polish my nails without smearing polish all over my cuticles and skin.

Second, the formula: ugh. This may sound like a plus, but it dries TOO fast - it starts drying before you have even …

Polishes - REVLON - Totally Toffee

4.0

If the 1970s had a color, it would be Revlon's Totally Toffee. This rich medium brown has a strong orange-red undertone that can make it a difficult sell, but if you're brave enough to give it a try, prepare to be surprised by how much you like it. Taking off one lippie because, like many Revlon creme polishes, there is a bit of shrinkage.

Lip Treatments - Chapstick - Total Hydration Moisture & Tint: Merlot

4.0

Oct/07/2018

Chapstick Total Hydration Moisture & Tint in Merlot is everything I had hoped that Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Red Dahlia would be - a moisturizing lip balm with a sheer tint in the plummy shade that is my go-to lip color. Total Hydration Moisture & Tint is a great, if basic, lip product that gives you a touch of color and just enough moisture. Unlike the Burt's Bees product …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - The Only 1

Sep/03/2018

One of the few lipstick formulas that I would repurchase. Smooth, creamy colors and a formula that feels good to apply and doesn't dry out my lips.

Top/Base Coats - Unlisted Brand - ACI - Bridge the Ridge Base Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2018

A recent illness left my nails a ridged, splitting mess. I was disgusted with how my nails looked, even with polish, until I found Bridge the Ridge at Sally Beauty Supply. Two coats of Bridge the Ridge create a smooth, matte canvas out of my nails. The semi-sheer white finish is great underneath polished that are thin or too sheer. All this, and it dries quickly, too!

*EDIT* As other …

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - All Shades

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/13/2018

This gel liner lasts forever on me. The dark brown is a perfect, rich shade, and I get zero irritation and very little smudging or fading, even on hot, sweaty days. I do, however, use this with a primer and sandwich a coat of eyeshadow between two coats of liner.

I'm not crazy about the brush that comes with this, though, at least not for this liner - it's not a precision …
