Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion [REFORMULATED]

2.0

This is very weird! It has a strong and unpleasant chemical smell. Normally Clinique does fine with unscented products, but this is icky. And it absorbs terribly. The first time I used it, I actually paused and thought, “is this a joke? Or is this actually hand soap?” Because it seemed actually to foam and become more visible on my face than it was in my hand. It eventually rubs in, and once it …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Glossier - Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream

I was a little skeptical on this one before trying it - I was particularly worried it would be too sparkly. I'm not in a sparkly moment in life (all respect to those who are). But Glossier got the shine just right on this for me. It makes my skin look moist and glowy, but not glittery or weird. And it is really thick and moisturizing. I love the texture - it comes out almost firm, and it …Read more

I have been using this for about 6 weeks. I am still on the fence about this, but I think I'm impressed. I should note, I gave the packaging a bad grade, but that is because I am using the mini-size (the one Sephora sells with the Hydro-jel, "the brights" mini pack), and the pump is fussy - it dispenses an irregular amount, but it also sprays 2 separate spurts when you pump it, so …Read more

Well, I love this. It smells so good and feels so nice that I actually look forward to washing my face. I love the smell so much, and don't find it too intense. Although I do find it reminds me exactly of a particular middle eastern dessert I once had (maybe it was syrian?), a sort of rosewater jelly pudding. So it does feel a bit like I am putting dessert on my face when I use this - but in …Read more

Aug/11/2017

I am a huge Glossier fan in general, but I am not that into this product. I am one of the skeptics who thinks this is basically vaseline / petroleum jelly. I am guilty of rolling my eyes when I hear of people "conditioning" their lips with it or otherwise "treating" their skin with it. Sure it has ingredients beyond petroleum jelly, but I don't see them doing much.. …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara

Aug/07/2017

At first, I loved this mascara because it was the first tubular/long wear mascara I had tried, and therefore, my first time having mascara that didn't run! It definitely stays put, and doesn't run at all. But after a while, I realized it doesn't have much else going for it beyond staying put. It adds some definition, but does not add much in terms of volume or length to my lashes …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Lash Power Mascara

Aug/07/2017

I like this mascara a lot. First and most importantly for me, it stays put. It does not melt off under my eyes, and most other non-long lasting formulas do. And it really truly does wash off with warm water, which not all "long lasting" mascaras do for me. It also makes my eyelashes look longer and fuller. And it doesn't irritate my eyes (I wear contact lenses and have fairly …Read more

I got this in "mauve matte", and it just doesn't work for me. And actually, after buying it, I read other reviews elsewhere, and they say the same thing I am experiencing - it doesn't cover well, dries out my lips, and then clings to the dry patches on my lips. I think the other lipsticks in this line are good, based on the reviews, and this one would probably be good for …Read more

Sunscreen - CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Daily UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 50

Jun/06/2017

I am really pleased with this sunscreen. I have rosacea, and very sun-sensitive skin. Other mineral sunscreens I have tried (Aveeno baby, and then a French cosmetic one - not La Roche posay, maybe Avene? I can't remember) leave too much white cast, and/or do not work properly under foundation. This one blends just fine with makeup. It also has a slight tint, meaning it makes your skin look …Read more

Concealers - Glossier - Stretch Concealer

May/26/2017

I like this a lot. I find most other concealers I have tried for my undereye circles (Nars, Urban Decay, Clarins Instant) are really aging -- they settle into my fine lines and fine wrinkles and make me look really old and decrepit (I'm not THAT old yet). This one doesn't - or if it does settle a bit after a few hours, I just have to pat it with my finger and it smoothes out again. As …Read more
