Lip Treatments - Sephora Collection - Color reveal lip balm in Unique pink

Nov/04/2013

This was drying on my lips. It caused a crack in the corner on one side of my lips, which has never happened to me before. The first application gave me a pretty flushed pink lip but, because it's drying, I reapplied and got fuchsia. Than, I stopped using it to let the crack in the corner of my lip heal. Tested it out again, and the crack came back. I don't see any other reviews …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Physicians Formula - Color Corrective Primer - green

Feb/24/2012

This stuff does nothing for me. I didn't get a waxy consistency like others have said. Mine goes on like a thin moisturizer, and disappears. It in no way helped with the longevity of my foundation, or the little bit of redness I do have.
Somebody actually stole my Monistat Chafing Gel. Either they couldn't find it in a store (It's hard to find here) or they were …

I like it. It does what it says it's supposed to do. And, from my understanding it is supposed to be used before applying makeup. I don't wear a lot of makeup but I do wear something on my lips every day this is a product I put on before applying whatever it is I am wearing for the day. It's not something I would wear on it's own as a balm, but that's not what …Read more

I like this one. This is a clean, fresh scent to me. Though, like all CK fragrances it is on the cloying side. You need to apply with a light hand if you don't like strong scents because this will last all day. Especially on clothes. Even the person who is wearing it will still be able to smell it. Having said that, I'm OK with the strength of one or two sprays.

Primer/ Corrector - COVERGIRL - Simply Ageless Anti-Aging Foundation Primer

Jan/04/2011

I may be allergic to this, or something in it is just not meant for skin. I see from other reviews that I'm not alone. The very first review mentioned red bumps around the eyes, and that is what I'm experiencing. Not acne, but it's itchy, red, splotchy, bumps. And, my skin is not sensitive at all. I have used some of the more harsher products without a problem. The rash …Read more

I like this product. The shade I bought, Buff Beige, matches my skintone better than the three or four other foundations I currently own. And it wears fine on me, as if it's not there. But, I do tend to apply these things lightly. I'm loving the sponge applicator but I still use my fingers to blend it on evenly. I have the pressed powder to set it, and am now curious about the primer …Read more

Love the way this stuff makes my hair look. My hair is long, past my bra strat, with a lot of layers. It's naturally straight, somewhat thick, so without the layers it would just be too flat. This product really brings out my layers. I rub about a dime/nickle (remember my hair is long/thick) size between my hands and lightly touch it to my (wet hair) ends. Than I just let it air dry. …Read more

I'm very pale and this is a pink that looks lovely on me, and I'm sure on most skin tones Perfect for spring/summer. Not childish or gawdy at all. I'm 34 and usually do clear or french because I have a very basic style but at the change of the seasons I like to add some color. I'll be getting this color a lot.

Lotions/ Creams - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (All brands)

Jan/31/2010

This isn't for any particular brand, I've tried a few at this point. I do use the inexpensive Louana for my body since it was getting expensive to apply the extra virgin organic(EVO) I still use the EVO for my face and hair. The results I got are undeniable. My long (below bra strap) hair is so much more healthy now. I even notice less split ends. I read that it was the only oil to …Read more
