Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2016

I have dry, sensitive, rosacea-prone skin that loves this makeup remover. It is a solid in the container that you must scoop out with clean fingers or a spatula. It then melts upon contact with the body heat of your skin and dissolves your makeup. A little care and gentle rubbing must be taken around your lashes to completely remove mascara and eyeliner. You then mix with a little warm water …Read more

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2016

I purchased this CC cream in the shade fair, which was an excellent match for my NW15 skin. It is a full coverage CC cream that covered my redness from rosacea very well. My trouble was that even applying it with a dampened Beauty Blender and trying it with and without setting powder, it settled into every fine line and wrinkle I have. I had to return it.

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Waterproof Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2015

I usually buy the original High Impact mascara, but made a mistake when ordering and bought the waterproof version. Boy, was I disappointed. This mascara clumps like crazy! The only thing it has going for it is that it didn't smudge or run. There is no scent. It removed easily with my Clinique Take The Day Off Balm.

I don't recommend and will not be repurchasing.

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster

5.0

May/20/2015

I'm really impressed with this hyaluronic acid product! It comes as a bottle and dropper. The product is a thick serum. There is no discernible scent. The serum works to plump up fine lines and wrinkles.
I was skeptical to say the least. I've tried many products that claim to decrease my forehead wrinkles and marionette lines. This one actually works! I can't speak to the …

Lip Treatments - CLINIQUE - Superbalm Lip Treatment

3.0

Superbalm is an overpriced petroleum jelly (Vaseline). It has all the strengths you would find in a petroleum jelly product, such as a bit of moisture and a shiny look. There is nothing extra that makes it worth the price. It's nothing special and I wouldn't recommend it.

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/24/2013

NARS Orgasm is a beautiful peachy blush with high shimmer. It's a great color that reminds me of summertime.
The packaging is easy to open, but it collects fingerprints and makeup like a magnet.
I liked this blush, but would not repurchase because it doesn't suit my NW 15 skin.

Polishes - Formula X - All

Created with Sketch.

Nov/23/2013

I'm having very good luck with this line. I purchased the kit that comes with the nail cleanser(basically a dehydrator), the base coat, a polish and the top coat. I have used this kit with both the Formula X colored polish and other brands of nail polish. I had nice, shiny nails with minimal tip wear and no chipping for 7 days on multiple manicures. I'm calling this one a …Read more

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls Bronzer

Nov/04/2013

I bought this in Light Bronze Pearl. The package was deceiving in that the spray over-lay on the product is a lighter color than the actual product. In store I thought it might be okay. Imagine my surprise when I swirled my brush in the product and applied a glitter-bomb of an orange bronzer! It also exaggerated all my fine lines and wrinkles. A definite NO for me. Someone with darker or …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Neutrogena - Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer

Nov/04/2013

I usually love Neutrogena products, but this one was a miss with me. The packaging is good and air-tight, as it should be, but it is so highly fragranced I dreaded applying this product. I will not repurchase. I don't recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin Or sensitivities to fragrance.

Tinted Moisturizer - Paula's Choice - Barely There Sheer Matte Tint SPF 30 [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/02/2013

I received a sample of this TM, so im basing the price on a full-size.
I got the sample in the lightest shade. I'm a cool-toned, fair-skinned gal (NW 15-20) and the product was much too yellow for me. It gave more coverage than I'd expect from a TM. It also emphasized my fine lines and wrinkles.
A Plus are that it has good sun-protection.
I would not recommend this for …
