Liquid - Boots - Botanics Virtually Weightless Color Adjusting Foundation

Apr/13/2012

This product is seriously the best liquid foundation I have ever used, and I have tried a LOT from drugstore to high-end! The price is average for something that can be found at Target, but much less than what you pay for at a department store. Packaging is amazing - sturdy pump bottle that gets every bit of product down to the last drop up and out. A little goes a long way, so it lasts awhile …Read more

Eyeliner - Boots - No7 Liquid Eyeliner

Apr/13/2012

I wanted to try liquid eyeliner from Boots, a brand I have been happy with in other areas. This product is awful!
The price is a little higher, considering it is bought at Target here in the U.S., but it is Boots, which is generally good quality.
The packaging is normal for liquid liner, but the brush is tiny, flimsy, and too soft to make a steady consistent line. It does not pick up …

I am having a terrible allergic reaction to this product. I have longer hair (falls at least 6 inches below my shoulders) and since using it, my hair has become dry, brittle, and now has split ends. Until I started using it, I had the healthiest hair and not a one of these issues. Worst of all, I tend to wear lower cut tops (varies as to whether in front or back) and when my hair is styled over …Read more

Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Smokey Shadowblast-Bronze Fire

This is a lovely color combo that looks compliment-worthy for no more than 30 mins after applying. After that, with or without a good primer underneath, it begins to smudge and melt off, leaving awful caky creases around the eyes. The packaging/application method is clever, but the product is an epic fail. Definitely not buying again - the lack of staying power is not worth the pretty shades.

Best liquid foundation I've tried so far. Color was a good match for my skin tone, coverage (applied with a round sponge) is medium-full, even and natural, feels relatively light, and it last pretty much all day - including through humidity and a few times caught in the rain!
My only complaint is that it can tend to feel and look slightly oily, even though I use TLC powder (also a …

Lip Gloss - Physicians Formula - Plump Potion - Nude Potion

Oct/03/2010

I appreciated the satiny sheer nude color, but the staying power was worse than a lot of glosses, and it was WAY too sticky. I felt like my lips didn't want to open when I spoke, and it would build up around the corners of my mouth. It also had an unpleasant taste and scent. Originally I bought it to try out the plumping affect, but even though it tingled, I never saw a difference. I …Read more

I switched to this over the summer and use it alone or under the matching powder foundation.

Pros:

Excellent packaging: hygienic pump that actually works and allows you to control the amount, plus it's cheery and cute.

Great SPF: Has really protected against sunburn - and I've been outdoors a lot lately.

Water/Sweatproof: Worn this to the …

Moisturizers - Clean & Clear - Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer

May/26/2010

Pros: lightweight, non-greasy, has a soft feel.
Cons: after a few hours makes skin look and feel very oily, exacerbates skin problems - made flare ups more red and caused zits around my mouth. Also makes skin more sun-sensitive probably due to the salicylic acid. I'm switching to something I hope will be more effective for me.

May/10/2010

Even though I'm in my 20s, I decided to pick this up for wrinkles on my neck and forehead (probably due to years of loving the sun too much). I have been using it at night for a month or so, and while I do think I see some slight improvement, it's not worth it for me!!!
First of all, it was made me break out everywhere I have used it - forehead, neck, and even chest area! I …

Misc Beauty Tools - Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

May/06/2010

This product is amaaaaazing! Granted, I've never used blotting sheets before this - I used to just pat my face with tissue and reapply powder, which is not very effective and ends up looking cakey! These sheets do wonders!!! The absorb oil and instantly eliminate shine, without messing up my makeup! I just wish they were a little larger and a little cheaper, but that won't stop me from …Read more
