Most reviewers seem to love this but I was able to sample from an open bottle while at TJ Maxx and it gave me a serious allergy attack. I could not stop coughing and my eyes were watering. I have never reacted this strongly to a perfume before. Strange. Pretty bottle though. I am just glad that I didn’t blind buy this one.

I find this to be the most confusing fragrance that I have ever owned. Some days I really enjoy it, and on other days I find it to be a sharp screechy mess that induces headaches. This was the fragrance that I chose when I received a Sephora fragrance sampler as a gift for Christmas last year. I probably redeemed my certificate too quickly. I should have sampled it longer to make sure, but I …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

Aug/23/2016

I really love the way this makes my lashes look. Does a nice job thickening, gives nice length and my lashes feel soft. It's also nice and dark. Could be perfect for me except for one very negative issue. By 4pm I have a black flaky mascara mess under my lower lashes. And I only use mascara on my top lashes!!! I have noticed that the problem seems to happen after I walk my dog in the late …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I had been very curious to try this foundation since it seems to be extremely popular. I was shopping at Rite Aid and all L'Oreal products were 40% off so I picked up a bottle for only $6. I applied it with a damp Beauty Blender, like I do for all of my foundations. It did a good job of neutralizing my redness and I was surprised that it held up pretty well throughout the day ( I didn't …Read more

I am really liking this foundation. Was curious after reading so many positive reviews and have been searching for a new foundation for my still oily yet over-40 skin that is very fair with large pores and some mild rosacea. Although some people have mentioned that they think the shades seem to run a little light, I am an NW20 in Studiofix and find that the same shade works perfect for me in …Read more

Wow, and just when I thought that mascara brushes couldn't possibly get any larger!!! I just don't get the recent trend of such over-sized brushes, seems as though whoever is designing them forget that mascara is a product to be used on our EYES. To me this mascara is just awkward and potentially dangerous, an eye injury just waiting to happen. I should have known when I bought it …Read more

I can see why others like this lipstick so much. It seems to be great quality especially for such an amazing price. Goes on very smoothly, no annoying or irritating fragrance, nice creamy coverage. Didn't wear as long as my go-to favorite lipstick (Mac Craving) but I could live with that if the color were really great on me. Unfortunately the color was my only real problem with this lipstick …Read more

I am really not a fan of these. The first one I bought was Roomiest Rose. I thought that it really dried out my lips and actually made them hurt. Then I stupidly bought another
one in Plushest Punch. Same thing happened. The only thing that I like is the packaging. My own fault for being so foolish to buy something that I didn't like the first time. Will I ever learn my lesson? Wish I …

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Matte Eyeshadow in Foxy

3.0

Dec/12/2013

I have a palette that included Foxy and it was the color that I used up the quickest. When I saw that it was also sold in a single I bought one, assuming that it would be exactly the same as what was in my palette. Maybe I just got a bad one but even though it looks the same, the formula of the single seems very different. It is much drier and barely even gets on my eyeshadow brush, let alone my …Read more

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 - Extreme Pink

Jan/19/2013

I really do not care for this lipstick. First of all, I think that this is kind of a boring old-ladyish pink. It doesn't look like a color that I would call "extreme" pink. And on me it looks too frosty with too much white in it. Really does nothing for my fair skin. I generally look better in deeper or brighter plum and berry shades. I also do not like the feel of this lipstick. I …Read more
