Moisturizers - La Roche-Posay - Hydraphase light texture

Dec/30/2008

I am always searching for a super-hydrating moisturizer that won't cause my oily/combo skin to break out, and to clear up my nasty winter flakes. I was hesitant to purchase this because it's pretty pricey for a d/s moisturizer, but I went ahead and got it out of desperation - and boy am I glad!! It immediately restored my skin to glowy, dewy health (I haven't had that in a while!) …Read more

Lip Gloss - MILANI - Crystal Gloss for Lips in Whisper

5.0

Dec/29/2008

This is a great dupe of MAC Lipglass, and this color is an exact match for my favorite Lipglass shade. I love the scent - though it is too strong for some people's taste. If you don't like scented glosses, skip this one! It is very strong, but I do find it pleasant. The texture is better than Lipglass - not as sticky, and feels more like a balm shortly after applying. This shade is a …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Revision Hydrating Gel

5.0

Feb/22/2008

This is a cooling hydrating gel that can also be used as a mask for sensitive, dry skin. I cannot even explain how much I love this product. I have oily, acne prone skin that gets completely dried out in the winter (yet still breaks out, gotta love it), and this gel was my answer from Heaven. Definitely an H/G product. It hydrates so well without drying one tiny bit, absorbs quickly and leaves …Read more

Cleansers - VICHY - Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel

I have suffered from cystic acne, been on Accutane, had clear, wonderful skin for over 2 yrs post treatment, and now I am breaking out again. I tried the Vichy NormaDerm line as a desperate attempt to NOT have to go back on Accutane...but after just a few days, my skin is worse than ever. This isn't one of those "it has to get worse before it gets better" things, either. This line …Read more

Lips - Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick - SPF 15

What a bunch of hype over nothing! This is in no way comparable to the Original Eight Hour Cream - my lips are dried out within minutes of applying this, and the scent is god-awful. Not worth the money, by any stretch of the imagination. A Bonne Belle Lip Smacker beats this product my a mile.

I love, love, LOVE this product. I tried BE once and was completely turned off to mineral makeups because it completely dried my skin out and looked terrible - the only BE product that works for me is the Bisque concealer.
Anyway - I was a bit skeptical about this product, but read a few reviews and thought I'd give it a go. What a pleasant surprise!
I have quite a few old, but …

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Tom Ford Black Orchid

4.0

Dec/28/2007

I love this fragrance! While I do agree with many of the reviews that the initial spray is a tad overwhelming and reeks of a beauty orgy slumber party (frozen bras excluded), the dry down is lovely, musky, and dark. I adore a scent - provided that it's a nice one - that lasts for days, and I love putting on a sweater and instantly getting a hint of what perfume I wore with it last. This …Read more

Fragrances - Viktor & Rolf - Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

Sep/04/2007

I absolutely love this fragrance - I was initially wary because I'm really not a "floral" person, unless it's lilacs or violets, but this one won me over. It really isn't overwhelmingly flowery, despite its name.
I'm not a fraggie, so I'm not sure how to describe it - its deep and sultry; very, very sexy, and I have had several people stop me to ask what …

Blush - Sonia Kashuk - Cheek Sheer - Supersheer Beach Bum 04

Jul/08/2007

I absolutely love this product. It is very similar to Tarte, but more of a cream than a gel. Don't be put off by the super bright color in the tube - it goes on much more subtly.
I apply with a natural hair blush brush, and blend on apples, up over temples, onto corners of forehead, then a bit over my nose and chin, and end up looking flushed and lovely - and this product has a nice …

Treatments (Eye) - Avon - Anew Retroactive Eye Serum [DISCONTINUED]

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2007

I luckily got this product as part of a sale - it was $5 if I bought any other Anew product.
This did not absorb well into my skin and left my eyes feeling tacky long after it had been applied. I also did not notice any lessening of undereye circles, no tightening, and no wrinkle reduction. Not a repurchase for me!
