This stuff makes my hair so smooth and shiny, it's unbelievable. I have to be careful though, because if I use too much it makes my hair really greasy. But when used properly, it's fantastic. What's annoying though, is that sometimes the cream separates and I'll end up with a hand full of pure olive oil. Blech! All things considered though, I haven't found anything yet …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Waterproof

A great everyday mascara for my tiny, thin, puny little eyelashes. The small brush is genius; I used to use Lancome Hypnose, and while I found the formula great, the big brush just wouldn't reach many of my short lashes. Lash Discovery manages to do that. It's absolutely true though that it doesn't provide a very dramatic look. My lashes look longer, but not much thicker. This is …Read more

I really love this lipstick. I always try others, but end up coming back to this one. I don't find it as drying as some of the other reviewers have. It's actually pretty moisturizing, I find, and it also has wonderful lasting power. I have really pink, pigmented lips and this tones them down to a pale pink-beige. I absolutely love it.

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Incredifull 800 rapturous rose

I really liked the colour: a pale, pale pink that looks great with smoky eyes and my NC30 skin. I also really liked the texture: it's a shiny lipstick that makes my lips feel really soft. The "full" effect is subtle, if anything. I'm not much of a believer in lip plumpers. There's definitely a temporary effect but not much more than that. But regardless, it's a great …Read more

I've been using this for a couple of days now, so really I should be waiting a few more days before I write this rave review, but I can't wait. It's that good. I have combination/oily skin that's acne-prone. This foundation is perfect. The texture is so silky, and it does cover well. I apply it with a sponge in the mornings, and then I use a powder brush to touch up if/when I …Read more

Best concealer I've ever used, hands down. I use it in either C25 or an NC30 (NC30 in the areas where the sun hits, like my forehead). It's incredible. I've used it for like 6 years, and have never stopped loving it. It's a full coverage concealer with great lasting power, and it doesn't break me out at all. And I have combination/oily/acneprone/sensitive skin, so …Read more

I had such high hopes for this product. I used this for quite a long time, a couple of months, so I'm reviewing this after a pretty lengthy trial run. I really like MAC (I admit, particularly because of the simple, elegant packaging) but it just didn't work. I'm usually an NC30, but in this I found that for this particular product after the colors oxidize they darken significantly …Read more

Eye Shadow - LORAC - Jade

Mar/09/2006

This is the first LORAC product I've ever bought, and I have to say I love it to death. The colour is amazing -- a wonderful smoky shimmery green-black. Like some other reviewers have said, it's not all that green; only slightly. In any case, it looks beautiful. And the best part is the staying power. It lasts all day on me, something that very few eyeshadows I've used have been …Read more

Styling Products - L'Oreal Paris - Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum

Mar/09/2006

I use this product as a leave-in conditioner, and it leaves my long, straight hair feeling shiny and smooth, without being weighed down. In the winter, I used to have such horrible problems with static, and this has made that problem disappear. I don't really like the packaging too mcuh, only because I find it really hard to close the bottle after I've used the product when my hands are …Read more

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Fresh Vive Shampoo

Mar/09/2006

Best shampoo I've ever used. Affordable, and always leaves my hair feeling clean and shiny. My hair is pretty long, so this leads to problems: oily roots, dry ends. When I wash my hair with this shampoo, I concentrate on the roots and only lightly wash the ends. This maintains the moisture in my hair. I use this shampoo in conjunction with the L'Oreal Vive Smooth-Intense Anti-Frizz …Read more
