Cleansers - Biomedic - Purifying Cleanser

Dec/13/2009

Oh man, I wanted to like this, but I swear this stuff was the start of my slide from a flawless complexion this summer to full out acne. My skin was doing fantastic using the soy cleanser from fresh, a cleocin-t prescrip topical, and revale moisturizer and going for regular facials.

A friend who gets comped a ton of products gave me a basket of goodies and this cleanser was one of …

Fragrances - Narciso Rodriguez - For Her Musc Collection

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/07/2009

Oh my gosh, I just LOVE this. My review is for the Musc Intense in the metallic purple-y/pink bottle. Brief background - a few years ago before the original NR hit the market, I tried it at Saks and found it quite strong and distinct. I was a fan, but wasn't sure if I could pull it off for every day wear. However, I loved being ahead of it even being released, so I left my credit card info …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - RevaleSkin Night Cream

Jun/04/2009

Full disclosure – one of my friends is a sales rep for this product and hooked me up with a nice supply of the day cream, night cream, eye cream, and intensive recovery therapy. While I was somewhat intrigued by the potent antioxidants of this coffeeberry line, I don’t know if it is a moisturizer I would have purchased on my own. It is also pretty expensive for a pretty small bottle. When I …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Illuminating

I received a sample of this in bare radiance and was excited to give it a try. It certainly is “illuminating!” I have mixed feelings about that! I have to say, at first I LOVED it. The coverage it gave me was so FLAWLESS, I almost ran out to buy it. I mean, my skin looked just gorgeous, it evened out my skin tone, didn’t look like I was even wearing makeup, no cakey texture, no pores …Read more

Brows - Laura Mercier - brow powder duo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2009

Having pretty thick, almost coarse, eyebrows, I never would have even thought I needed a brow powder? But my awesome Laura Mercier girl used the Soft Blonde brow powder on me while doing my makeup for a premiere party, but I didn't pay much attention to what she did to my eyebrows. When my friends and family saw the pictures, they all kept commenting on how great my eyebrows looked! …Read more

Scrubs - Dermalogica - Daily Microfoliant

May/28/2009

After some great facials and good products, my skin has been in good condition lately - no breakouts and my skin tone is pretty even. However, once the initial glow from my facials goes away, my skin was looking somewhat dull. I was looking for a good exfoliator to primarily help brighten and polish my skin without irritating it. Thanks to reading some of the reviews here, I learned that this …Read more

Hair - Jonathan Product - Beauty Water Shower Purification System

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/19/2009

I noticed this Jonathan filter a few months ago at Sephora and was intrigued enough to come home and read some reviews here. I have my hair highlighted every 6-8 weeks or so and find myself loving the fabulous bright bursts of blond for the first week or two, and then gradually it dulls, despite the high end color stay products I use. I am guessing my lovely city water has a great deal of …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2009

Don’t like this at all. Like others, I am also a big fan of the Nars blush in Orgasm and thought the lip gloss color looked equally pretty. It is too light and frosty for me, and I actually prefer my Neutrogena gloss in Glimmer? or Dizzy? (I forget) to this one at a fraction of the cost. And I hate, hate the texture. It is so sticky, doesn’t spread right and looks awful on my lips. I had …Read more

Makeup Brushes - BECCA - Creme Blush Bronzer Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2009

BEST BRUSH EVER. Okay – I had my doubts. $40 for a brush?? But, I had come across my first Becca cream blush – the perfectly awesome Wild Orchid. I used my fingers to put it on for weeks and quite honestly thought the result was just fine – what did I need a brush for? Circle dab of color on each cheek and blend, right? I thought it looked great! But, I read a few reviews of this brush and …Read more

Hair Treatments - Kérastase - Kerastase Nutritive Irisome Masquintense Thick Hair

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2009

Total Holy Grail product. I highlight my hair every few months, kill it with a hair dryer every day, curling irons, and straighteners. I have naturally wavy (aka annoying) hair that “takes work” and poofs and looks awful if I don’t “do” it. Because of the color treating and the heat I am always blasting it with, my hair would be dry and dead (and look kind of like Alex’s on the Real Housewives …Read more
