Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor - Vibrant Mandarin

I wear this almost every day. I love the whole Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids line (with one exception). I was hoping this color would look a bit more orange-y on me then it does. My lips turn everything pinkish. But even so the color is great. It's fairly matte but not drying (not moisturizing either but to be a long lasting matte and not dry is a good start). The wear is very good. It …Read more

I love the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids line but this one shade was a disappointment. I was hoping it would be as lovely and vivid and opaque as the other vivids but it was actually more glossy and sheer then the others. As a result it didn't show up as very orange on me. So I returned it. But definitely try the other colors in this line because they are great.

These have become my HG lipsticks and they are just a drugstore brand! They are highly pigmented, somewhat matte and last a long time. They are not drying (not moisturizing either but at least they don't dry). They wear off to a good stain. My lips are prone to lines and feathering and neither of those problems occurs with this rather matte lipcolor -- and thats miraculous. They survive …Read more

This lasts longer then any other nail polish you can use at home. It doesn't last as long as getting a professional gel manicure but it lasts SO much longer then any other home product.I think I get 7 days of perfect wear and then I just start to show tip damage. My nails are very short but thin so that's still saying something. I do not know how safe the chemicals are in this product …Read more

Styling Products - John Frieda - 3-day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray

Feb/25/2012

I was looking for a replacement for my favorite (now discontinued) Easy Straight Serum. This wasn't it. It had decent blow dry time but it left my hair frizzy. Straight but frizzy. The results only lasted for a day really before my hair was very frizzy again.

Boo.

FYI my hair is very thick and naturally wavy/ frizzy (imagine an 80s hair metal band-- that's my …

This perfume smells great. It is the richest most indulgent jasmine ever. If you like their Flying Fox shower gel it's like that yet MORE so.

Here's the problem: it leaves a bright pink stain on your clothes. The stain doesn't show up right away--- it can take days to appear. My dry cleaner was able to get it out of most of my clothes, just not this one thin cotton …

Hair Removal - LUSH - Shave the Planet

I get mad razor bumps. Thought I'd give this a whirl since I love LUSH.

This was a rare disappointment. I shave my legs in the shower and I found that the cream rinsed off before I could shave it off. I would try a bit at a time-- apply to my left ankle, shave my left ankle immediately, then do the right, etc.
Even with that I couldn't shave fast enough to shave before …

I usually use Dream Cream but that smell is so relaxing that I frankly don't like using it in the morning (lavender puts me to sleep).

So I picked up Karma Kreme thinking it was more awake-y and would be a good morning moisturizer for my legs and insanely dry hands.

I like the smell. Not my fave Lush smell but its really nice. Interesting and unusual. It's not a …

I loved it
First disclaimer: I have really great skin in the first place so your mileage may very.

I got this for free when I turned in 5 empty pots to the store.

I tried it on at home and I really did like the piney smell (BF said it was nice too).

I left it on for longer than instructed meybe 20 min.
Washed it off and WOW.

Like I said, I …

Fantastic smelling soap. It is the best deodorant soap I have ever used. If you just came from the gym this will knock the stank out of you like nothing else. The smell is jasmine and it lingers.

I have dry skin & while I don't find it moisturizing it's not drying either. My boyfriend has oily skin and this doesn't give him breakouts. So I'd say it's …
