Primer/ Corrector - CLINIQUE - Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector [DISCONTINUED]

This product makes my face even greasier by the end of the day than if I don't wear a primer at all. As an added bonus, as my makeup slides off of my increasingly oily face, the primer seems to cause the makeup to actually settle into my pores (which haven't been filled with primer, obviously) and makes them stand out even more. I can't believe I paid money for this product! I …Read more

After several years of letting my hair grow out I decided to go back to blonde again and thought I would give it a try. I used the 9 1/2.1 lightest cool blonde. I followed the directions, waited the 30 minutes and.....my hair is exactly the same color I started out with. My hair is light brown, about the color of the darkest shade they show on the side of the box, and I had no color change …Read more

Finally! A foundation that doesn't go directly into my lines and sit there all day! I don't have a lot of lines, but I have one smile line on one side of my face that showed up in my early 20s and has been the bane of my existence. Since my skin is oily, foundation tends to slide off my skin and collect in this wrinkle in just an hour or 2, which leaves me with this odd light colored …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

This mascara has convinced me that there is truely nothing new on the market. There is nothing great about this. I loved the idea of "the falsies", thinking it might give me more oomph than the last 10 mascaras I've tried.

I don't care for the curved applicator brush. For those of you that do, this might be a bonus. I did see on the packaging that the brush …

This was a cute concept, but it just doesn't work very well in real life.

I saw this product for sale at my local drugstore and decided to give it a try. I got one that's for all eyes, so it's shades of brown and cream. The first time I used it I had to load the applicator several times because it seemed to just suck up the color. Like others I also found that it …

I love this stuff! I bleached my own hair for years and since I couldn't see the back of my head I tended to overlap a LOT to avoid dark patches (I also had a tendency to let my roots grow to about an inch, and I overlapped out to 3-4 inches every time I bleached) Sometimes I would just do my whole head over because my hair would start looking yellow (I was a lot younger and dumber) So as …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Avon - Anew Ultimate Contouring Eye Serum

Dec/11/2009

This stuff is nothing special. Once again I was sucked in by all of the rave reviews on the Avon website. I'm starting to believe that many of them are written by their sales reps because not one of their products has ever lived up to their claims for me. I have fine lines in my under-eye area, and the very beginnings of that crepey look on my upper lid. After 3 months of using this …Read more

First I'll start with a little background. I quit bleaching my hair from light brown to platinum blonde a little over a year ago because I wanted super-long hair and was sick of all of the breakage I had. (little bits of hair all over my clothing and the floor every time I combed or brushed) During that year I've tried several products to help keep the bleached out part as healthy as …Read more

Lips - COVERGIRL - Outlast Lipstain (All)

Jul/14/2009

I was really excited to try this product, but it's not all that easy to apply. The pen seems to dry up before I get both lips finished. The color also does not wear off evenly, so by midday I've got blotchy lips, and it's not like you can just wipe off the excess. I've even tried exfoliating my lips before applying this junk and I still have blotches by the end of the day. …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer

Apr/01/2009

This was the first primer I ever tried, and it certainly didn't do anything I thought it would. I tried it several times and I used a small amount, and it made my skin feel really soft and velvety.....for a while. Then my foundation would slide off and I'd be so completely greasy that it'd take several sheets of blotting paper to get the oil off. Then I had foundation caked into …Read more
