I need this product to define and fill in sparse brow tails. I’ve already repurchased it three times. But no more! Enough already. Yes, it does what it is supposed to do, “even though it’s expensive for the small amount of product you get. Sometimes if a product rocks, you can excuse the cost. BUT.

The spooly end has broken off ALL THREE TIMES I’ve owned it. The first time? Probably …

Moisturizers - Too Cool For School - Egg Mellow Cream

I've already repurchased this product. It says it's a 5-in-1 product: serum, priming moisturizer, eye cream, neck cream, and sleeping mask. Normally a claim like this is BS - it can't really achieve all of those goals! But this stuff CAN and does. I am very oily however this does not make me oilier. For such a rich product, it is actually a bit mattifying. It works equally well as …Read more

Lip Gloss - Winky Lux - Disco Lip Gloss

I have this gloss in the shade "Groovy". It is your standard color changing gloss, it goes from green to pink. But the finish is interesting, because it looks like a stain. I like lip stains but they are very drying. This gloss provides that "ate a popsicle" stain shade but doesn't dry out my lips. The packaging is a normal doe foot applicator, but the applicator turns …Read more

The shade "Ash Blonds" is GREAT for correcting brassiness in Dark Blond, Medium Brown, and even Dark Brown hair. You always hear: Blondes should use purple shampoo to combat brassiness. But what if you are medium blonde, light brown, or even dark brown? I used this product in the shade "Ash Blonds" on my Medium Blond hair. It's a mix of purple AND blue. Blue corrects …Read more

Eye Shadow - bareMinerals - The Nature of Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

5.0

This is my favorite palette ever, and I want to review it in case anyone else is in my category: low contrast coloring. I have low contrast coloring, which means my hair color and skin color are not too different from each other. No big contrast. My coloring is like Jennifer Aniston's: can you imagine her in bold, colorful eyeshadow? No way, it'd be unflattering. You may think the …Read more

BB Cream - Maybelline New York - Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

I have larger pores and fine lines, with occasional dry patches. For these reasons, sheer, American BB creams have been useless because most formulations consist of pigment suspended in silicone which just seems to deposit the pigments on my face's texture imperfections. I've been forced to use full coverage Asian BB creams and spend extra time blending and sheering them out. For …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational lip color - 945 Stormy Sahara

I am delighted to say I believe this is a dupe of a lipstick I wore over fifteen years ago, Desert Storm by LOreal (discontinued). Clinique made a similar shade that had slight shimmer, also long gone. I have been searching for years for a proper dupe, always consulting with old pictures, but I realized most nudes today lean too pink or too brown. This really is a tan orange. It's a true …Read more

Lip Gloss - LORAC - Couture Shine Gloss Collection

2.0

Smells like vanilla cake batter. It feels soothingly thick when applied, but it does not stay that way. Does not stay shiny for long, so it fails as a gloss. It can fade to a less-than-chapstick layer in less than an hour.

This is a great lip balm, BUT it depends why you need it. If you need it because your lips are medically chapped and causing you discomfort, then this is your product. It really helped me get over chapped lips caused by getting new braces. If you are looking for something glossy and pretty, maybe you should keep looking. Note: this contains lanolin, an animal product, which is known for its …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Anti-Shine Compact [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/13/2011

This is meant to be blot on, not rubbed in, just like other reviewers say. When I apply it before a social occasion, I know this product will keep me matte, and the best part is that even immediately after you apply it, it does not look like you’ve just applied makeup. You know how it is - you don’t always want people to know you’ve been primping before you meet with them. Bonus: you can apply …Read more
