What. A. Pain. I bought this in the hopes of using under my makeup. I am pale pale pale so a little white cast doesn't bother me if it sinks in after a bit. Applied this to my face, neck, ears and décolletage as I wanted to go for a walk outside. Waited ten minutes after rubbing in thoroughly. Went to apply my makeup. It was a disaster. Clumpy white streaks everywhere. Even where there was …Read more

I love mascara-he and ds-and have tried dozens. I have been using this one for about a year and this is the closest to perfect I've found in the last 25 years. No flaking no clumping but very voluminizing and lengthening. I wear a lot of mascara on a daily basis and find this one builds up quick and doesn't transfer around my eyes and I usually buy this when in sale at Walgreens or with …Read more

So I stalked this palette for weeks on its first release and didn't nab it, but I was able to find it when re-released. I spent serious time trying to locate this, and I'm so glad I did. It's my favorite palette right now. I'm nw 10 ish with light brown hair and blue eyes, and have never used very warm colors and certainly never orangey ones on my eyes, I have always been …Read more

I love this foundation. It is surprisingly liquid-y, and, for me the biggest drawback is the packaging. For such a fluid foundation I would have expected a pump. I constantly have to remind myself not to dump it over. I am very light/neutral...about a N5 or 10...I usually mix Alima 0 and 1 if I do mineral. The lightest shade in this is quite light but tends towards the yellow on me. I like …Read more

raisinberry is one of my favorite lippies. the color is a perfect plummy berry. my lips are quite pigmented and this adds quite a bit of oomph without looking too goth. one of the few stronger colored lippies i can get away with wearing to work. i also love the texture; it's moisturizing but thick enough not to migrate everywhere. would repurchase.

i love it's raining men; it's my favorite shower gel by LUSH. I've been a fan of their products for more than 10 years and was so excited when a shop finally opened up in my area. i used to buy the products from canada; so saving on shipping and being able to try before purchasing was great.
the scent is sweet but not cloying and while it is strong while in the shower, it …

after i went back to dark auburn from being strawberry blonde, my hair looked dull. i wanted something to give my hair a sleek shiny finish so i bought this. i found it on clearance at ulta for $9...so i got it for a good price but probably would not pay for it full price. (i will spend a ton of money on makeup but apparently not so much on hair products) this does give me a pretty shiny …Read more

i can't believe i haven't reviewed this yet! i'll never forget the first time i saw this lipstick-i was a chubby, makeup-loving small town highschool girl who had never been to a department store counter....then i saw a thin, beautiful, popular girl pull this lippie out of her dooney & burke purse. i asked her what it was and had to have it...fifteen years later and i'm …Read more

i saw this one on a fotd. loved it. the color is so pretty, a bright but not neon creamy coral that looks good with my pale skin. my natural lip color is a pretty dark mauve so this cooloer color is a big departure from my usual mlbb lippies. i like the formula, it's creamy and very pigmented. what i didn't like: it was expensive in my opinion, and the packaging is the expected- …Read more
