Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original

5.0

May/08/2013

I resisted buying this due to the price--but I'm glad I finally took the plunge. I can see why this is so popular. It doesn't take much extra time to apply, and just a tiny dab on each eyelid really helps shadow stay put (and intensifies the color). I am more inclined to make eye shadow part of my routine now that I know it will actually stay put. The tube should last a good long while …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Eucerin - Dry Skin Therapy PLUS Intensive Repair Lotion

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2013

I live in a cold, northern state. Winters are harsh and my skin gets very dry and uncontrollably itchy if I skip even a day of moisturizing. The good news is that this product works; the bad news is the way it goes on your skin. I've never understood what people meant by "sticky" or "tacky" lotions until now. This does not sink in quickly; your skin looks shiny and feels …Read more

Foundations - Almay - Smart Shade Anti-Aging Skintone Matching Makeup SPF 20

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2013

I don't use foundation every day, and I've never had one that felt like my "go-to" product -- until now, I think! I am quite pleased I tried the anti-aging version of Almay's Smart Shade foundation. I dislike heavy foundations (and I don't actually need heavy coverage), so something like this is perfect -- it provides medium coverage but feels non-existent. I like it …Read more

Eyeliner - COVERGIRL - Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner (All Colors)

4.0

Nov/02/2012

This is my go-to eyeliner because of the ease of application. Most shades tend to be slightly "creamy," so they go on gently, without tugging at the delicate skin of your eyelid. It's easy to do a subtle application or build up a thicker line. I never use the smudging tip at the other end, but I still like this product since there's no need to sharpen it, the colors are …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - 3-In-1 Professional Straight Brush Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/02/2012

I found this to be a surprisingly good "cheap" mascara: goes on nicely with no clumping, leaves lashes soft and not brittle, and the brush size is good if you, like me, dislike the hugely oversized brushes that are so popular now. This mascara doesn't give me huge, dramatic lashes, but it's perfect for everyday wear and comes off easily. This and Almay's mascara are my …Read more

Concealers - Physicians Formula - Concealer Twins

Sep/10/2012

I'm disappointed in this product, though I like the idea of a color-correcting and skin-toned concealer in the same tube. I have the yellow and flesh-tone one. The liquid is very thick and hard to blend. Under my eyes, I find it settles into lines and highlights them, rather than help me cover up some under-eye darkness. (I should note I have few very, almost unnoticeable wrinkles -- so …Read more

Styling Products - Dove - Nourishing Oil Detangler

4.0

Sep/10/2012

I have plenty of hair, but the strands are very fine and tangle and shed easily. Seemingly no matter what conditioner I use in the shower, it's difficult to comb out my wet hair. This product is a low-cost help in that department -- I spray it on generously post-shower, give a minute to sit, then comb my hair out with a very wide-tooth comb. I'm not sure it really moisturizes my …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Smitten

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/03/2012

I love this product and have purchased it in three colors: Smitten, Romantic, and Cherish. Smitten is my favorite of the three: a bold, flattering berry shade that works well with my blue eyes and pale skin (though I'm sure it would be flattering on a wide range of people). The shine is subtle, the color lasts, and it does not feel sticky, drying or uncomfortable on the lips. This is a …Read more

Lip Gloss - AVEDA - Lip Glaze in Mango Juice

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2012

I'm a fan of many Aveda hair products, but not of this lip glaze. Luckily, I got is as a freebie. It goes on with a sticky feeling and so thickly that it looks white. Ugh! I have to smudge off the excess with my finger. While it does stay on better than other glosses, the color is barely noticeable (though it's very shiny, if that's what you're looking for). All in all …Read more

Cleansers - Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2012

My skin is generally really good, but I have to be careful since I have mild rosacea and occasional allergic reactions to things. This is my favorite cleanser to use at night: it removes makeup thoroughly, doesn't dry or irritate my skin, and the price is really reasonable. I have tried more expensive things, but I keep coming back to this because it simply works the best for me.
