Eyeliner - CYO Cosmetics - Kohl Gel Eyeliner

The staying power on this is pretty unacceptable. It applies fine, doesn't irritate too much, but it comes off anywhere there is water, so... (I'm talking one tear even.) I know it's hard to find something that stays on the waterline for over an hour, but this practically comes off AS you're putting it on. And what's worse, it comes off ugly. Y'all know what I …Read more

This was SO dry that it wouldn't blend. (I do have dry skin, but I don't write a bad review based on something not being appropriate for that.) It is like a boatload of powder dissolved in wax--and you can imagine how hard it would be to get that right! I put it on, tried different brushes, sponges etc. Could not save it. Wouldn't blend into my skin at all and beaded up into a …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

I got this in one of the Ulta kits and I loathe it. Nothing I have used on my face--including alcohol--has made it feel this dry. It also increased my redness. I rinsed it off very thoroughly, but it still felt like there was something left on my face--and yet, that something wasn't moisturizing at all! I honestly felt like I would be better off using shampoo or body wash on my face. …Read more

Pressed Powders - Maybelline New York - SuperStay Better Skin Skin-Transforming Powder

I'm writing this review for a completely self-serving reason. I have the distinct impression that some dumbass at Maybelline is about to pull the plug on this powder. Because that's what they do at cosmetics companies: Fix what's not broken and discontinue what is awesome.

Those of you who remember the tragic loss of Maybelline's other magic masterpiece powder …

This is a truly full coverage foundation which, in spite of endless claims by cosmetics companies, is actually quite rare. It actually looks decent while doing it, too, which is even rarer. So that's where the 4 stars come from.

However. It never sets. Ever. Powder, spray, nope. It will pretend to set--for an hour. Even the Sephora girls were like "No, it never …

I had this in my stash and went back to it. It is a VERY underrated foundation for dry skin. I don't recommend a brush or sponge. Just smooth on a thickish layer OVER your skin (It's a thick cream) and then more where needed. Doesn't cake, good in pores, neutral in lines, satin finish, VERY easy to whip on and go once you know how to work it. NOT fussy! I can get full …Read more

I want this dead. And whoever made it needs to suffer--like I just did trying not to look Satanic for my afternoon walk.

They should have just made two different eyeliners, because the pencil liner (retractable) is pretty dang decent: 4.5

+ Staying power: A Decent on the waterline even. Easily gets through a work day and most of an evening
+ Allergen-friendly: A …

For anyone else who has 500 blushes in a drawer somewhere that either made you look clown-like, flu-like, chemically-impaired, or the victim of poor bathroom lighting, this might be your new BFF. Or at least a benevolent neighbor you that wave to everyday.

If you are like me and have...um, issues (rosacea, bumpy skin, undertone confusion), blush can be such a challenge that you swear …

If you are a person who likes Even Better regular, but need a little more pizzazz to your finish, then I suggest you just use regular Even Better and spritz with Fix or some other dewy product, because this, IMO is no improvement on the original. This is a medium coverage, non-buildable, "wet" looking, cruddier finish version of the original. I swear I think they just added glycerin …Read more

It was hard to decide whether to review this puppy, because usually when I discover a hidden gem, my first instinct is to keep it a secret until I've hoarded enough to make it through a nuclear winter. (Cause I know how you wenches are!) So I had to weigh the prospect of hype-induced scarcity vs. it being discontinued because no one knew about it. I chose the selfless option and ordered …Read more
