Mascara - Peter Thomas Roth - Lashes To Die For The Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I purchased this mascara based on reviews from MUA and Beautipedia.

Pros: Did not sting or irritate my eyes, not harsh or stiff.
Cons: Need to use eye makeup remover to completely remove, then there is still light residue left under the eye. Clumpy lashes, no volume or color intensity. More like an ash gray black.

Verdict: If you are looking for a natural, clean …

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Eye Color - Morning Dew

2.0

3 months ago

I was looking for an eye shadow that would brighten my eye lids and cover the dark areas on my lids. The color is lovely in the pan but disappeared on my dry lids within an hour. It's also very powdery when applying. Best shadows for my mature eyes are Dior, Chanel and Lancome. They are pigmented and don't require a primer however, their color ranges are shrinking.

Conditioner - Unlisted Brand - Mystic Divine Argan & Monoi Oils Nourishing Masque

3 months ago

I don't purchase products from Sally's Beauty other than an occasional demi-color to tone my hair. Recently, I tried a sample package of the Mystic Divine Argan and Monoi Oils Masque to use after coloring my hair at the suggestion of the sales associate. This product did NOT condition but left a film on my hair without any shine. Guess it's the coconut oil and dimethicone, a …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

I've been using MAC's Studio Fix Powder foundation in NW22 for about 6 months. It agrees with my 70-years young dry skin as it does not settle into fine lines or pores and works best applied over a good moisturizer and sunscreen (Elta MD 46). I apply with either a dense brush (Sephora's Complexion Mini Multitasker) or the round sponge that is enclosed with the foundation. I find …Read more

Mascara - CLARINS - Supra Volume Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

I purchased this mascara based on a couple of convincing You Tube reviews. It smudged upon application and did not separate or define my lashes as I prefer. The wand did not apply or distribute the mascara evenly on my lashes. Light application to my lower lashes resulted in dark shadows under my eyes. This mascara simply did not perform as I expected for the price.

Foundations - CLARINS - Tient Multi-Regenerant Extra Firming Foundation

UPDATE 10-6-18: I wanted to give this foundation another try without applying moisturizer underneath but using only sunscreen prior to application. Results were a softer finish, more coverage and longer wear time. Unfortunately the color "Nude" 105 is just way off and I look washed out.

--- I wanted to love this liquid, creamy foundation as I have been using powder …

Sep/04/2018

Dior's "Forever Extreme Control" Powder Foundation is for those with very oily skin. This foundation has replaced Dior's Forever Flawless Fusion Compact powder foundation which has been discontinued. I contacted the Dior website to inquire since I wanted to order the product online. I was informed by their French representative that the powder foundation was no longer in …Read more

Eyes - Laura Mercier - Eye Brow Pencil

Jul/10/2018

I'm surprised Mercier's brow pencil has not been reviewed here on MUA. I use Blonde (Taupe) and have repurchased this brow pencil for years as it is easy to apply and wears a good 6 hours before fading. A sharpener is included with each purchase and the pencil requires sharpening every two or three uses to achieve a smooth, even and defined application. This product covers and …Read more

Mascara - Lancôme - Definicils High Definition Mascara

4.0

Apr/25/2018

Essential and reliable mascara -- I've tried many along the way including Chanel Le Volume that wears and looks best on me and most recently the greener brands (Lily Lolo). With the Defincils there is no smudging, it's easy to remove with eye makeup remover and stays put. And I love the brush.

Shampoo - Davines - Momo Shampoo

Apr/01/2018

Update 05/2918 - I gave this shampoo another try since coloring my hair at the salon. This product works best on those tht color their hair (high or low lights) rather than virgin hair or aging hair that lacks pigment and is mostly white. I did condition well after shampooing and can feel the moisture. I noticed a difference while blow-drying as my hair was more manageable and easier to style …Read more
