Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Superior Preference Hair Colour

I used Medium Golden Brown about 8 weeks ago and have noticed that it's still covering the majority of gray hairs with the exception of the roots where they have grown out. This stuff works way better than Garnier, which is what I had tried previously. The color came out darker than I expected, but not so much so that anyone else that I was around on a daily basis even noticed. It stinks …Read more

Darker than I expected, but still a great color for toenails. I think the formula is a little thick, but this might just be a result of the heavy pigmentation. It is very durable; I applied this a day or two prior to hiking over 20 miles and it has held up for a week beyond without a single chip...that's impressive for a dark color that would typically show every flaw!

This is the shade of pink that I have been looking for! It's a beautiful creamy mauve that applies smoothly. It's not too yellow or orange (I was worried it was a duplicate of OPI's "Baguette Me Not") and is instead a more purple/blue-based pink. Pink Chocolate reminds me of a shade of Revlon polish from the late 80s/early 90s that my mom had and painted my nails one …Read more

I previously used Medium Natural Brown months ago to cover grown-out highlights. It turned out a little darker brown thatn expected but did the trick as far as coverage. However, the color definitely faded out by 8-9 weeks. I tried Medium Golden Brown today to cover a few grays and the remainder of the highlights; it did a great job covering the highlights, but I had to go back and reapply to my …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Chintz

This is a fabulous lipstick! The color is a light pink that does not look chalky. The texture is smooth and creamy without being too buttery and slippery. Chintz has a vintage name and a very 1950s/60s look. I keep this one in purse and it's become my go-to shade. Once I use it up, I will most definitely buy it again!

This is the BEST foundation I have used. It applies smoothly, evens my skin tone, and does not give me acne or worsen my existing acne. I've tried Bobbie Brown foundation for $46 as well as several types of Clinique and L'Oreal. The Cover Girl surpasses all of these products. I wish that it had a pump to make application less messy.

I have been using this foundation for over one year. The application is very smooth and it creates a flawless finish. However, it makes my face breakout in huge pimples! I am finally using a skincare line (ABH Beyond Belief from Sally Beauty Supply) that really cleared up my face over the past two weeks. I used the Bobbi Brown foundation when I went out with friends yesterday and had awful cystic …Read more

What a great color! I used it for a pedicure and the results are flawless. The formula applies beautifully and covers evenly and smoothly. This is a good classic pink; not too red and not neon. I plan to do a manicure with this color soon. The formula is far superior to Orly's for similar shades of pink.

This is a complicated polish! To get decent results, aim for coverage on the first coat by making sure that you don't have too little or too much polish on the brush. Try to even out the streaks in the metallic pigment on the second coat. Don't be afraid to run the brush over your nail a few times on the second coat even after you've covered it in color; this will help to even out …Read more

Eyeliner - REVLON - Colorstay eyeliner in Blackberry [DISCONTINUED]

Aug/10/2011

I prefer Revlon's Colorstay eyeliners, particularly Blackberry, to more expensive, department store eyeliners. Blackberry is a sophisticated deep purple that pairs well with any pink, purple, or nude/brown eyeshadow. It stays on longer than other eyeliners that I have tried and yet is not difficult to remove with Purpose or Neutrogena facewash. My only complaint is that mine has started to …Read more
