I cant get this to work for me. It looks downright horrid. I've done 3 sprays, 2 sprays, 1 spray, 12 inches, 2 feet, arm length, hell, I've even sprayed it in the air and walked my face through it. It just looks like plastic film on me. But its made in America so 1 lippie for that!

Mascara - Estée Lauder - Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara

I'm actually impressed. I have like 10 lashes on each eye (not really but it seems like that) and this mascara really did make a difference. Nice volume, good length, no clumping, smearing or flaking. I've been on the hunt for a really good mascara since Max Factors 2000 calorie was nixed in the USA so its been a few years and many tubes of really crappy mascaras I've had to …Read more

Oh hail no! and I'm a PF fan generally because its made in the USA and not tested on animals, but this is horrid. I bought in Light/Medium (I'm NC/NW25-both work on me) but light/medium was still a smidgen too dark. The tone was fine and the coverage was enough to blur freckles a little,but the finish-oh wow. Now I know what I'll look like in 20 years. This made wrinkles and pores …Read more

It's a winner! It has a satin finish with light-medium coverage. Minimal settling into lines and pores (important to us over 40 gals) It sets quick! You have about a 3 inch work space before it drys and becomes impossible to blend. Controlled my oily t-zone for about 3 hours (which is the average for me). I'm a NW20-25 and I chose LF5 based on the reviews here on MUA. It looked really …Read more

Lipstick - FLOWER Beauty - So Gladiola

Really regretting this purchase. It is straight up 60's light coral, with the chalky finish to boot. It goes on dry dry dry and it is bright! Much brighter than the window on the bottom of the lipstick case portrays. The packaging is adorable even though its a little bulky. I love that its made in the USA and not tested on animals (my 2 new criteria for beauty products now). I have managed …Read more

Fragrances - Tabu - Tabu by Dana cologne splash

Nov/08/2012

I'm so going to date myself here, but Tabu is about history to me, and it has a long one. My mom use to wear this is the 70's and I loved it as a kid. It was so grown up-warm and sweet. She would waif in after a night out, with the scent of leather, marijuana, tobacco, and Tabu. To me she smelled the divine hippie chic with her long black hair and crocheted sweaters.

The …

Lipstick - Merle Norman - Luxiva Lip Glaze

Really liking these. I have in Bear Hug (a slightly shimmering tan nude-MLBB) and Stolen Kisses ( a shimmering berry). The lip glazes so on sheer but definitely leaves some color. They last longer than a lip gloss and aren't as goopy, but the finish is similar-glossy. They are similar to Revlon's lip butters but MN have a better feel, and much more pigment. They are also much more …Read more

Smells delish! just like hot chocolate and does a great job moisturizing the lips. I'm not liking the nude color though...it makes my lips look "dead" so I can only use at night. The jar says to use within 12 months once opened, however it only stayed fresh for about 6 then it went rancid, so use it up quick cause when it goes bad it smells awefull! I know I didn't have …Read more

Fragrances - Mary Kay - Forever Orchid Eau de Toilette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/24/2012

This is a warm amber-ish floral scent with a lot on emphasis on vanilla. Why Mary Kay named this "Forever Orchid" is beyond me. Most orchids don't have a scent, and those rare ones that do, can smell like anything but floral. I mean really, when was the last time you smelled an orchid? See what I mean? Who the ell knows what an orchid really smells like?

I really do …

Lipstick - Merle Norman - Luxiva Lip Color in Penny Lane

Oct/06/2012

Slightly frosted (not like 80"s frosted) warm peachy rose. I have bright pigmented lips so this is shade is just a 1/2 tone lighter than my lips and works out great. It's a nice everyday color that goes with everything. I know Merle Norman changed their packaging and all the new Lipsticks are in the small silver tubes (as was the tester), but mine came in the gold tube and smells a …Read more
