HG! HG! I love this lipstick! How can it look so different in the tube (sort of blah) but then be the perfect MLBB color? I just tried it this morning after receiving it last night, and it's wonderful. Of course, it was underwhelming in my bathroom's lighting (where pretty much everything looks underwhelming) but outdoors in "real" lighting, it's incredible. The perfect …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - aloe life skin gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2012

I think this is really terrific stuff. I love the fact it's aloe, but better - the additional vitamins just make it all the more appealing. I had an early issue (like another reviewer) that it didn't seem to sink in very well - until I finally tried putting it on right after cleansing while my face was still the barest bit damp. It really sank in and left my skin really soft and not …Read more

Wow! I'm so surprised there's only one review for this! This and the retexturizing cream are the only two skin products I have ever used that I have finished AND repurchased (several times). I have very fair skin, and have had lots of broken capillaries around my nose most of my adult life. I splurged and had them lasered a couple of years ago, but, surprise, surprise! They came back! …Read more

I can't believe there's only 1 review for this! I admit, I threw it in the shopping cart as a "well, I've already bought everything else, might as well try this too" purchase, and boy was it worth it. I have an area under each eye where the skin has always had tiny bumps. I've tried everything to fix it, mask it, whatever. Even my beloved Derma-E hasn't done …Read more

Brows - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Castor Oil

Jan/06/2011

Wow! Great stuff. Haven't had any breakout issues. Personally, I use it as a bath oil 1x/week - 2 Tbs. oil, 20/30 min. My legs, which are usually a dry, flaky, ichy mess this time of year, look completely normal, and this is with only the baths - no xtra lotion/oil at all. I do use a lot just to make sure, so you may want to start out with less and work up - YMMV. After reading the reviews …Read more

Hair - Unlisted Brand - Unrefined Shea Butter

5.0

Apr/26/2010

Another HG! Finally I can go all natural with my hair (except the color ;-). It's unbelievable how awesome shea butter is! I've been hesitant to try it - while most conditioners aren't strong enough, I just pictured the shea butter turning it into greasy strings, since it really is an oil, after all. It really does only take the tiniest bit (this from someone who goes through …Read more

Eyeliner - ULTA - Automatic Eye Liner

Apr/19/2010

I definitely need to add my HG RAVE for this product!! Years ago, my favorite way to line my eyes was eyeliner in the waterline... but the constant maintenance battle was just too much. Under my lower lashes isn't really an option, as my eyes are deep set. I've had small creases under them my whole life and any pencil/kohl liners would settle into them in under 5 minutes. Finally went …Read more

Polishes - Color Club - Art of Seduction

Mar/26/2009

This is a clear polish with a LOT of red glitter - gorgeous! Did it as a Christmas mani with red and green alternating nails (with Object of Envy). It looked great - but the red polish literally peeled off each nail (in one piece!) after two days. Strangely enough, Object of Envy stayed put until I took it off. Since it was the same mani, done the same way with the same products, I can't …Read more

Mar/26/2009

To say up front (the good) - The color and the shimmer are awesome! However, the application is really lacking. To be fair, I only used one coat of Foundation II underneath, but this went on SOOOO streaky - even after three coats the color was not completely solid. I also noticed a few black "fuzzies" on three nails (must've been from the brush?) and with this color, they really …Read more

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

Mar/03/2009

Finally - a foundation I can love! I bought this several months ago because of MUA - over the years I have tried almost every foundation out there and nothing ever made a big enough improvement to my skin for me to wear it more than once in a while - in fact, they usually just made the pores on my cheeks and nose more obvious - not what I was going for. So, usually, I went without. THIS works. I …Read more
