Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Waves of White

May/30/2013

I have a few of these color tattoo shadows and I really enjoy them. Waves of White was a disappointment. It applied opalescent and sheer. A very pretty color. I really liked it under the bathroom lights. Several hours later I saw it in store (artificial) lighting and it was really awful. Very patchy looking as if it had moved around on the eyelid. I looked at my eyes again in natural light and it …Read more

Shampoo - PANTENE - Expert Collection Age Defy Shampoo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2013

The advertising hit all the right notes for my hair. Aging, dry, frizzy, and light greying. I used most of the bottle with no real benefit to my middle aged hair. Pros-it feels good while you are washing and rinsing. Cons-no change to frizziness, dryness, or breakage upon drying. Also, this is expensive for a drug store shampoo. I wouldn't recommend this and I certainly would not repurchase …Read more

I have longish, mature, dry hair. As I've aged my straight hair has turned curly and fuzzy underneath. I am always looking for products that smooth and sooth the hair. I used this with the shampoo this morning. The shampoo left a heavy feeling to my hair which I really disliked and while the conditioner had a good slip, when I got out of the shower I could see the 'dryness' through …Read more

I do not understand the low reviews for this. My HG is YSL Faux Cils. I've tried bunches of mascaras. Dior, YSL, Urban Decay, L'Oreal, ect...But for 3 bucks you cannot go wrong with this mascara. No, it is not incredibly volumizing, but it is lengthening and very black. I have slightly oily lids and I haven't had any smudging or flaking. I've experienced no clumping and I …Read more

I have long, dry, and damaged hair. Age has changed the texture and moisture level of my hair dramatically. So I was really hoping to love this. The name is misleading. This did nothing to repair or smooth my dry hair. It sort of weighed my hair down while leaving it mildly fuzzy on the ends. I tried it twice and ended up with two bad hair days in a row. No repurchase.

This is good hand lotion. As I age my skin has started to dry out considerably. My hands tend to crack and itch. A few weeks ago I noticed that my knuckles were raw and very red. I went in to the local CVS and saw this. Thinking their lip products were effective this might be good as well. It is good. It's not great or fantastic, but good. It performs as advertised and helped add moisture …Read more

This is an excellent product. I have never been able to wear liquid foundation. I've tried high end, low end, and everything in between. Without fail it oxidizes and turns orange or it slides off my face in a few hours, leaving a greasy mess. So I've used powder foundations for years. Now that BB creams are all the rage I did some research and Lumene was well rated, so I thought I would …Read more

I had high hopes for this eyeshadow. It appears as a yellow/gold duochrome with a greenish undertone. It was far more sheer than I anticipated and at first I was disappointed. Having used it for about two weeks now, I'm starting to really enjoy the wash of color. I can use it as a base over my entire eyelid to add interest without looking garish. It applies as a thin layer by finger and …Read more

Meh, average conditioner that does an average job. I have long dry hair and this does nothing to add moisture or smooth my hair. It does smell great. Would be great for someone that doesn't need heavy moisture or conditioning.

Amazing color payoff and pigment for the money. Very true mauve/pink. I am very fair with slight ruddy cheeks. I cannot wear coral or orange undertones, they turn muddy on me. Will repurchase when necessary, but image this will last ages due to using so little to achieve the desired effect.
