Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

5.0

Jan/19/2015

I searched online desperately for solutions to dermatitis on the butt. Looks like pimples and is totally gross and embarrassing even to ask a doctor about, in my opinion. I found an article in an old forum where someone had posted that she got rid of the condition simply by regularly exfoliating the area and using olive oil (EVOO) to moisturize. This same method worked for me as well. I exfoliate …Read more

Eyeliner - REVLON - ColorStay Liquid Liner

This is the only liquid eyeliner I will buy and use. I have it in black and black/brown, and I've repurchased both many times. It's easy to apply and stays until you take it off, with no smudging at all. I think it's a bargain at twice the price. Love it.

Eyeliner - NYC New York Color - Liquid Eyeliner

I bought this eyeliner based off a Youtube review and I don't really like it. I've been using Revlon Colorstay liquid liner, which I LOVE, but I thought this one is so cheap, why not try it too. I definitely prefer the Colorstay felt tip style to this flimsy paintbrush style. I like thin eyeliner brushes for gel liners but not liquid. This also does not seem to be as deep of a black as …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Frost Lipstick - Angel

Wow, Angel isn't up here yet? Anyway, I know tons of people love this lipstick but it was very MEH on me. Fairly drying, like I find all MAC lipsticks to be, regardless of finish. The color is a very pretty bubblegum pink, with a lustre finish, IIRC. It doesn't last very long once on and it's nothing really spectacular to me. I swapped mine and I found that Revlon Super Lustrous …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

I think this is the best drugstore foundation there is. I first started using it almost exactly a year ago and I loved it, but I'm a junkie so I had to start trying other things. Now I have come full circle and I am using Colorstay again and this time I mean it! It looks natural, it stays all day, it isn't expensive, and Ivory matches my skin exactly. I personally like the oily version …Read more

Not a fan! When I was getting ready for my wedding in 2008, I went into VS to pick up a bustier to wear with my strapless dress. I wear a 38C which I don't think falls out of the common range. The associate told me they don't make bustiers "that big" and she gave me a 36B to try on. Needless to say, it didn't fit. I went to JC Penney and immediately found a bustier in the …Read more

Eyeliner - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

I really liked this liner at first, but I've tried it two or three times and every time it transfers up onto my browbone. Ugly! Totally not waterproof. It's convenient to use but since it doesn't stay where I apply it I'm not keeping it or buying it again. Unfortunately with ELF I find that you more often than not get what you pay for.

Nov/25/2009

Wow, this is the primer I have been looking for! This is definitely the end of the line for me as far as primers go. I've tried Smashbox PFP, Shiseido (which I like for a more creamy, moisturizing primer but not for long wear), Revlon, Bee Luscious (or whatever brand sells it, it's private label), and a few others which I'm surely forgetting. This Lancome one is the FIRST to …Read more

I got this eyeshadow as a free sample with my order and it's lovely. It's a cool, satiny purple, and on the skin it doesn't look as dark as it does in the jar. I just want to mention that on my eyes it's almost identical to MAC Circa Plum pigment. If you missed out on Circa Plum then try this. It's a little less frosty but that is easy enough to fix. Awesome texture and …Read more

Concealers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Line Concealer Pencil & Brush

Nov/20/2009

This pencil is fabulous! It is one thing I always carry with me in my purse. It covers well when set with powder. I've used it on giant, angry zits and while it doesn't make the blemish look invisible it makes it look a LOT less noticeable. Unless you actually twist the cap when you put it on, it's not going to nick your concealer. I like that it has the sharpener there so I …Read more
