Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Blackberry

Finally found a BB lipstick I don't love. The color is fine... vampy / dark... but the color is uneven and leaves my lips looking patchy. I keep going back to this one and, after today, will gift or toss. I'm rather low-maintenance makeup-wise, so this may work fine for those who do more than swipe and smile!

These lipsticks, in other colors, wear relatively well considering their low price point. This one is not MLBB but rather ML period. I have tried 3 different shades of lip liner to make this work but it's just blah and uninspired. NMS. I can't recall if there are ever testers but this is one I would recommend testing on the lips (not hand) before purchasing. Very easy to de-stash …Read more

Clumpy McClumpclumptastic :( Nice packaging and the wand is exactly what I like but WAY TOO MUCH product. I'm too low maintenance to deal with scraping product off first or wiping or whatever - particularly when there are other mascaras that are one and done for me (Chanel Le Volume WP, Chanel Inimitable Intense). I have oily skin so most mascaras fall out on me (not the Chanel ones …Read more

Wow, I love Chanel fragrances and I'm surprised by the other reviews. That said, everyone seems to like Chance and Coco Mdme and I find THOSE to be boring and uninspired. Coco is my forever scent ... second would be Coromandel and down the line with Allure, No. 5, No. 22, Boy, and Cristalle. Anyhow, I love Gabrielle. I've had it since release so waited this long to review. This …Read more

I love this stuff! I didn't think I would but I do. I have oily skin and this is perfect - I don't break out and it provides enough moisture for me to not look like an oil slick even after a 12-hour day. I wish they upped the SPF a bit but then again, I wear this indoors mostly and if I am outside, I never totally depend on my face moisturizer anyhow (I use separate sunscreen). The …Read more

Really? I had to double-check that I wasn't trying to wash my face with lotion. I've tried using tons to little and I can't make this work. It doesn't do anything good or bad to my face but it sure doesn't seem to do much at all. While I understand it is function over 'experience', the idea of supposedly washing my face with something that feels like lotion …Read more

Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Schmidt's Natural Deodorant in Cedarwood Juniper

Im reviewing the STICK version of this deodorant. I'm a stinky gal. This stuff works. But the stick can feel very abrasive when applying to the underarms. As the stick melts a bit, when putting the top back on, it can goop up and you'll need to wipe around the edges. Not worth it to me when I already have a stick deodorant that works AMAZING - Every Man Jack deodorant. I usually grab …Read more

I know I'm in the minority here but I FAR prefer the waterproof version of this. By far. I tried this for a solid 10 days and declare it a fail for me. This version is very wet and takes time to dry. While the lashes look great- I don't see a ton of difference between this and Voluminous. The wp version dries faster and lashes look amazing in one swipe.
For clarity, I'm a low …

Mar/21/2017

Interesting reviews. My take: I've repurchased this a number of times over the years. I have oily skin. I'm also a "minimalist" with makeup- I just wear mascara and lipstick. Occasionally I wear tinted moisturizer. Considering my makeup "situation", I think this works great because I can use it without having to use all those other products. It sinks in and does a …Read more

No. No. No.
I'm a low maintenance lass and this is way too high maintenance when for just a few more bucks, you can find a plethora of far better options. This is the first time I've wondered about actually returning a product. Also the first time I chucked something without considering if my 10-year old might like to play makeup with it.
Just a hot mess- not sure where to …
