Mascara - Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

5.0

Wow! I hate to say it but when I pay more for mascara I'm seldom let down. YSL gives you fat gorgeous lashes with only 2 coats. The packaging is nice too. You will pay more but this actually delivers. It will last you 3 months too so you'll save yourself the drama of purchasing and repurchasing drugstore mascaras that clump and flake. BTW, the colored mascaras are beautiful too. …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer

3.0

A silicone based primer, the first available commercially. It does the job of giving your face a smooth finish and helps makeup last longer. The price tag isn't so great and for much less you can get the same results with Monistat's anti chafing gel.

Fragrances - Lancôme - Tresor

This fragrance has been around for awhile and as lovely and classic as it is I'm sure it will be around for some time to come. There are light floral notes with subtle tones of sandlewood. There's a soft gentle complexity with this fragrance that definitely makes it a favorite.

Powder - Unlisted Brand - Earthen Glow Minerals-Cover Me Foundation

This broke me out big time. When I contacted the makers I got no response. So I foolishly took another chance and ordered again only to be stiffed by the company with no product and no refund. I'm really upset. Funny thing is they sent me an email of all times last week to invite me to try them again. Said they are reopening and would love to have me back as a customer. Are they kidding?

Hair Treatments - Ojon - Restorative Hair Treatment [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Oct/15/2008

I said that I'd buy this again because the quality of this product is very good. It definitely moisturized and conditioned my hair. The only drawback is I've found an equally good deep moisturizer from Earthen Glow Minerals for much less and since I love their shampoo and conditioners much more I've switched over. Their deep conditioner must have the same stuff in it because I …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Everyday Minerals - Long handled Kabuki

Definitely one of the better quality kabukis available and the price makes this buy even better. If you're looking for a kabuki brush or an applicator for mineral foundations this is the one to start with. It's unlikely that you'll ever really need another.

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Exact Mascara

I'm not a fan of CG mascaras because I seek volume first and length second. No clumping is always a plus but... Anyway I didn't see anything special about this. I can say that I did with Volume Exact (it gave volume) but this one not so much for me. The consistency was rather thin and it just didn't perform as I'd hoped.

Masks - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Yogurt Mask

I wish I knew about this in High School. Really this is one of the best DIY facial treatments that I've used. Leaves my face super clean, clear, and soft. The lactic acid really does it's job and the thickness of the yogurt helps it stay put for a full 20 minute treatment.

I really like these bars so much that I purchased 20 of them even though I already had some at home. Wouldn't want to be without them because the quality and excellence in this soap is definitely present. Great for sensitive, exzema prone, and normal skin types. Even oily skin like mine keeps asking for more of this soap.
