Product Reviews by NancyM
This picture is from a makeover at Sephora. I have sensitive skin and even though I was there for a foundation match, the SA had to try to push some skincare products so whatever.
She put this on me and I immediately broke out into this burning rash. HOLY HELL! It hurt. It burned. She had to run and get some calming wipes and even then my skin was burning. I happened to have some …Read more
Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Nude
I've been a fan of Bobbi Brown's products since the 1990s. I recently picked this classic up because I realized I didn't have a great day-to-day lip color. This is a good one. It's a rosy-brown nude that is just enough color to make my lips look like they have a little something on them but not so much that it stands out like crazy.
It's not the longest …Read more
I must have super-special baby's butt sensitive skin because this product stings!
I recently started using the Calm line and I love every product in it except for this sunscreen. It stings! It makes my skin look red and feel irritated. I have worn this for about a week and I think that's enough time to give it a fair trial. Also, it is greasy, heavy and oily yet makes my …Read more
I don't understand the five star reviews for this product. It is super flaky, and smudges all over the place. By 2pm I have racoon eyes. Terrible.
It's a very dry mascara and maybe that contributes to its flakiness? I don't know. I'm not a mascara chemist. It gave my lashes ok volume and no length.
The tube is a nice metallic pink that looks really cute …Read more
I got this in a subscription box and finally decided to give it a try. I use oils in my skincare routine (rosehip, argan, squalane) so I had no concerns about using oil on my face.
I used this last night before bed and woke up with pimples on my cheek and nose. I never break out. Never, ever. Never, ever, ever.
I checked the ingredient list and there are so many essential …Read more
Good god - all I smell is coconut. I sprayed this on about a half hour ago and all I smell is coconut. It's not a hint of coconut. It's full on nut.
It didn't hydrate. It didn't do anything except make my face smell like coconut. Honestly, truly. The woman in the cube next to me just asked what that smell is. It's my face.
I think I've given up on this product. It's a decent medium coverage foundation and the SPF is great but it's just not for me.
First off the SPF really works! I went to Machu Picchu and lost my sunscreen. I wore this and didn't get any color on my face at all.
The two areas I'm struggling with are color and dryness. First - color. I am easy to …Read more
This is the smudgiest mascara I've used in a long, long time. Two hours in and somehow it manages to smudge all over my undereye area. I have no idea how that happens - I don't rub my eyes and it's not flaking. It's smudging. It's a no for me.
Truly one of the worst products I have tried in a long time. Bless you whatever store gave me this as a sample. I have thin, fine hair and had trashed it using drying shampoo and conditioner. I was hoping for some smoothness and shine. What I got was a greasy, stringy mess.
I usually go about 3-4 days without washing my hair but I had to scrub this out the next day.
