Jan/12/2019

I was initially intrigued by the name of this palette - I had
always wondered why cosmetics manufacturers don't seem to find inspiration in gorgeous astronomical images. I bought it as a sort of collector's item, not intending to use it. ( I thought the colors would be too chalky and / or light for my warm caramel skin.) But I
was pleasantly surprised at the wearability of …

Lipstick - Three Custom Color Specialists - Custom-made

Feb/21/2018

I've turned to 3CC to make me new shades and to duplicate old ones. I've had much better luck with the new shades. Duplicating lipsticks and foundations have resulted in products that were close but not exact matches. So in other words, "off". And in each case, I've been very VERY specific about my orders, explicitly stating that my skin has warm undertones, etc …Read more

I could seriously throw away all my skin cleansers, now (!) that I've found this. Why do I love thee? let me count the ways-
*My skin feels soft and smooth, never tight or itchy (the way it does with LOTS of cleansers)
* My skin look even toned after a few days of use.
* My skin looks radiant after a few days of use.
* It's very affordable and looks cute.
* …

I was very pleasantly surprised at this product. It made my oily face with open pores and blemishes look much clearer and smoother after just ONE application!! I have sensitive skin, and am always prepared to feel a certain amount of discomfort after applying a new product for the first time. But I needn't have felt apprehensive about this mask. It stayed put without slipping, or dripping …Read more

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Domed Bronzer Brush

Mar/30/2016

This is one "eco-conscious" product that surpasses its synthetic equivalents. I've experimented with LOTS of thick powder brushes and this is by far the best.

This brush is great for both applying powder makeup on large areas of your face and for wiping off excess/ blending. I use it with my Bare Minerals R430 palette. My skin color (a warm deep caramel) is very hard …

I've tried LOTS of scrubs, masks, etc. and this stuff is amazing!! Has a pleasant low-key smell (neither overtly "chemical" or "natural/medicinal" and it's a steal for the price.

Although it's called a mask, it's like a scrub. It's pleasantly gritty. My skin is pretty sensitive, and I use this once a week. My skin looks and smells nice and …

DHC products are wonderful and don't smell overpowering. So is this shampoo. I was reluctant to try this because of the price is a bit steep, but was eyeing it because it doesn't have Sodium Laureth Sulfate. I finally bought it with the accompanying conditioner, and I'm so glad I did! My hair looks and feels soft, clean, shiny and manageable. They have left a pleasant rose …Read more

My hands take a severe beating with all the blackboard chalk and lab equipment I handle everyday. (At least they don't give me a headache like the whiteboard markers.) I've tried lots of moisturizers that either (a) shows up a greasy sheen on the backs of my hands, or (b) have a strong smell. I tried Boots Facial Oil on my hands, and it really seems to work. It gets absorbed instantly …Read more

Aug/06/2014

I LOVE this fragrance! Most fragrances "turn" on me, so what it smelled like on me - a sort of a warm mango / peach fragrance - may not be how it smells on someone else. I do not care for anything marked "lavender" and would have passed it up, except for the salesclerk offering me a whiff. I bought it on the spot. It is mellow and youthful, but still age appropriate for me …Read more

Eye Shadow - SHANY - Eye shadow palette

Great value for the money. There are two thin layers, making this box easy to take on a trip. Each shadow is about the size of a penny. Bolder colors are in the top layer, neutrals (pink/ mauvy / orangey browns are underneath). Some lighter shades may be chalky, but should look pretty OK with a primer.
