Lip Treatments - CLINIQUE - Repairwear Intensive Lip Treatment

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2011

I had a really bad experience with this. I used to use Clinique's Collagen treatment, which is discontinued, so thought I'd try this. At first, things seemed to be great. Then I noticed that my lips were getting raw and sore. I started to peel outside the lip line and discontinued use of this product. Went back to Neostrata's lip treatement and the peeling and scabbing …Read more

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Lineworks Waterproof Liquid EyeLiner in Black

Dec/09/2007

I have just used this product based on the rave reviews here, and I'm afraid I'm so disappointed that I am going to contact Mayballine. First of all, this product makes false claims. It is not waterpoof at all. I was fixing mistakes using a damp Q-tip. The applicator is so rigid that it is difficult to get a smooth line, hence the mistakes. It also skips and leaves "chunks" …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Lancôme - HIGH RESOLUTION with COLLASER-48

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/01/2007

This is a great product for mature women wishing to hide a wrinkle or two. No product is going to "cure" a wrinkle, we know that. But they can be lessened by a product that boosts moisture or has silicones to fill the wrinkle in. Collaser-48 does just that. While you use it, you will have less noticeable lines, pores, and your skin will be radiant. Stop using it and, well, it's …Read more

Foundations - Avon - Beyond Color Line Softening Mousse Foundation

1.0

Mar/11/2007

No coverage at all. Gives the skin a nice, matte finish, but expect to see all your flaws, pores, etc. as they look without any make-up at all. When I tried to build the coverage, it looked like I was wearing a mask, and imperfections still showed. This is just going in the garbage. Oh, and it doesn't minimize lines at all. To add insult to injury, this sure as heck isn't a mousse.

Foundations - Lise Watier - Teint Lift Anti-Ride SPF 20

Mar/10/2007

I would have to agree with the previous reviewer. This is an excellent, over-looked foundation that delivers excellent results. My skin is smooth and almost looks "photo=finished" yet the foundation itself is not overly heavy. I don't feel the need to set this with a powder after application. The pump on the bottle is great, too. My skin is combo, with oil build-up occuring around …Read more

Fragrances - Oscar de la Renta - Volupte

This scent is described on other sites as a floral-oriental type perfume. It does seem that way to me, as I can definately smell the carnation and jasmine. But you can smell the mandarin, too, which is wonderful and "lightens" the perfume up. This didn't smell fruity at all to me until I read about the mandarin, but you can sure smell the amber and musk toning down the floral …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - MMU Cosmetics - Make Me Smooth Body Custard - Various Scents[Discontinued]

4.0

Sep/01/2006

This is a nice formulation, but it takes a little while for my dry skin to absorb. Bearing this in mind, I would buy anything Mmu. I just seem to get on with the body butters and the Silk Lustre lotion better. If you have an extra couple of minutes to spare in the morning, this will be worth your while. It's a nice, moisturizing cream, but requires a little patience.

Lotions/ Creams - MMU Cosmetics - Babe Cakes Body Icing (various scents)[Discontinued]

A little of this goes a long way, yet leaves your skin so very moisturized. It's a nice, thick cream that spreads easily. I've tried a number of scents and have been pleased with them all. I really like Papaya slices Slices, Belly Dancer, and Seduction of the Foolish Lover. If you order this formulation in a strong scent, it will clash with your perfume. Best to order the comlimentary …Read more

Mascara - Estée Lauder - More Than Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/01/2006

This is a bit better than Lash XL, but in my opinion, it just lengthens a tiny bit and colours the lashes. You'll have better luck with a drugstore brand, without having to shell out for a premium mascara. I did try this with Lancome's Cils Booster, and it was nice, but not as nice as Cils Booster followed by a Maybelline mascara. Go figure. Anyway, after using the Cils Booster, there …Read more

Mascara - Estée Lauder - Lash XL

Sep/01/2006

Just no, no, no. My eyelashes tend to lengthen nicely and hold a curl without an eyelash curler. This mascara managed not only to not lengthen my eyelashes, but make them poker straight in the process. This would be a nice mascara if you just wanted to colour your lashes. It does a good job of that. Whatever other claims it may make, it doesn't live up to. And it dries out in a couple of …Read more
