BB Cream - wet n wild - Fergie BB Cream

Jan/17/2016

I went to work (gasp) without my usual Missha BB cream on, so when last minute plans came up that day, I had to pick up a cheapie BB cream nearby at Duane Reade. Lucky, this was just $3. Well, you get what you pay for because:

1-It is extremely sheer for a BB cream, and difficult to build. It took 3 applications to finally equal the coverage of the M Perfect Cover BB cream from Missha …

Top/Base Coats - Unlisted Brand - American Classics - Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat

Apr/13/2015

Short of receiving a defective bottle, I am completely lost as to how my results skewed so far from the others. I followed many reviewers' instructions to a T, used good quality polish, and handled my nails (and hands with care). So, you can imagine my surprise when my polish not only bleed (both Maybelline Color Show on my toes and Ciate Ice Cream Nail on my hands) onto the brush as I …Read more

Dry Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - EverStyle Texture Series Energizing Dry Shampoo

3.0

Jan/18/2015

Bought this on drugstore.com where the reviews were great, yet the reviews here seem to be mixed. I wish I checked here first, because this is just a mediocre product. The upsides are that it leaves zero residue, smells nice, pretty can, and gets rid of the greasies in a pinch. The downsides are that it is very, very subtle. I actually had to spray this on a mirror to make sure there was product …Read more

Cleansers - Boots - No 7 Beautiful Skin- Melting Gel Cleanser Normal/Dry

Jan/18/2015

After getting a sample of this at Duane Reade, I decided to buy the full-size. I prefer cleansers that come in tube form so this was perfect. I wouldn't call it an HG product, but I am glad that Boots' Skin-Melting Gel Cleanser is gentle on my sensitive winter wind-blown skin, and even helps moisturize it a bit (it also seems to help my skin "hold" my moisturizer better). I …Read more

Cleansers - Bliss - Fabulous Foaming Face Wash

Dec/16/2014

This was on sale along with the matching body wash and I could not pass up what a great deal it was. For the summer, this is great--it gently scrubs away grime, leaving my skin feeling clean and refreshed. The scent is a bit of a put off when I initially caught a whiff, but it doesn't linger.

However, harsh NYC winters rendered this product an enemy against my sensitive skin …

Lip Treatments - Boots - Extracts Coconut Lip Blam

Dec/16/2014

I have very dry lips and consider myself a lip balm junkie. I prefer pots instead of sticks because I feel they go on smoother due to the warmth from my finger.

I got this on a sale at Duane Reade (retail $6.99 each). While not pricey, I wish there was more than just .33 fl oz of product in here.

All in all, a good product that smooths lips with a pleasant coconut scent …

Lipstick - NYC New York Color - Ultra Moist Lip Wear Retro Red 308B

4.0

Nov/05/2014

I'm not really a lipstick kind of lady, but with everyone rocking red lips around me, I wanted to try it out for myself. Retro Red seemed like a good place to start; it was cheap ($1 at Duane Reade!), the perfect, classic shade of red, and had great reviews. One complaint is the initial packaging; mine did not have perforations along the plastic so it was nearly impossible to get it out of …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Got2b - Rockin' It Encore Fresh Dry Shampoo

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/09/2014

I bought this on sale and decided to give it a go. it smells pleasant in a pinch, but overwhelming if you spray a lot and especially if you're in an enclosed spaced. This would be a good dry shampoo if you need a quick fix to freshen up your roots (I would say you can get away with not washing your hair for 2 days max) as the effects only last for an hour or so. The major downside is that …Read more

Apr/23/2014

Received this as a gift and was excited to use it. I'm so glad I didn't spend money on it because I've been using it for months but I see no results. My biggest gripe is that it smells like saliva, ick! Thankfully the scent fades but lingers on my hands. This is prob best used on normal to oily skin. I have dry skin and can use this on humid days as a light weight moisturizer. Not …Read more

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - La Coupe Silky Smoothing Shampoo

Oct/29/2013

I randomly found a huge bottle of this on sale at Duane Reade for $4.99. The other shampoos in this line don't smell as nice as the smoothing shampoo so I went for it..and fell in love! I will probably go back to the store and purchase the conditioner as well. I'm currently using a Finesse conditioner and I felt that the La Coupe shampoo actually makes my hair a really good, clean …Read more
