Eyeliner - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner with Double-Ended Brush

Nov/22/2011

Wow, I was so glad to find my new HG black gel liner in a gift set with a mini Tarte cheek stain, mascara and lip gloss. I have combination skin with apparently well hydrated lids because liner always fades on me quickly. I've tried essentially every other gel liner, and in terms of staying power I've found from best to worst: MAC Fluidline, Stila Smudgepot, Bobbi Brown (barely lasted …Read more

Moisturizers - VICHY - Aqualia Thermal Light

Feb/26/2008

There is currently a Vichy promotion where any full-sized moisturizer comes in a set with three samples, so I finally had a great excuse to buy this. That and the fact that my house is extremely dry and my face was like sandpaper. Within days of trying this out, I had glowing, hydrated skin again, without even having to exfoliate to see the difference. The packaging is sub-optimal - it would be …Read more

Skincare - Face - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar A.I.

I got this for $12 with four samples of LRP products, how could I be wrong? I used to be a picker, but this is so magical that I have given up the practice. On two separate occasions, I have had pimples nearing a little white head. Slapped on some EAI before bed, with no trace of any imperfection in the morning. Seriously vanished completely. The earlier in the pimple cycle you apply it, the less …Read more

HG for me, thanks to a MUAer recommendation. I could never commit to another mascara, I had been through Lancome, Dior, L'Oreal, Maybelline, Cover Girl and other Rimmel mascaras that all left my satisfied for a few weeks but not longer. In the last 8 months I have had to replace my mascaras monthly because they would dry out so quickly and leave me unhappy. Finally, after over two months of …Read more

I liberated a sample from the counter - it's a 2mL packet attached to a details card, because I fell in love with the Onyx eyeliner and figured I should plan for the next gwp. (No notes on price or packaging, sorry.) I was quite pleased with this. It's hot and humid here and this is a breath of fresh air for me. A very light moisturizer that does some good moisturizing (I'm using a …Read more

Sunscreen - Ombrelle - SPF 60 Face Cream with Mexoryl XL

Jun/14/2007

Previous experiences with Ombrelle have left me unhappy with tacky skin, and white clothing in contact with the product turned yellow. I was using LaRoche Posay's Anthelios 45, but it was leaving me greasy in the t-zone and with a few blemishes. I went back to my Shiseido 50 cream for a day and was even greasy with that. So far this product has surpassed my expectations. I found it at SDM …Read more

Fantastic smudge brush - has changed the way I wear eyeliner. Works great wet or dry, delivers the right amount of colour and has a good weight to it. Plus it's pretty and silver :) A+!

Excellent brush with a nice weight like an expensive pen. These are now available individually which is a mixed blessing since before I couldn't justify buying the whole set and now I am slowly accumulating them. Applies shadow perfectly and makes a nice crease brush at least for my lid. I never wore eyeshadow before this brush!

2nd the HG taupe, this is just too perfect. Highly pigmented, gorgeous on pretty much every skintone Ive seen it on (I actually had to try it after seeing it on a MA) and the price is well worth it. I got a Stila gwp with Coin, Latte and Champagne and thought those would satisfy my need for neutrals, but they're absolutely useless compared to this eye shadow - this actually shows up and …Read more

I think this product was discontinued, as I found it on sale for $10-ish a year or two ago. Since, I have not gone a day without using it for eyebrows or liner. I need to find another one! This brush is soft enough to use on the lids for gel or powder liner, and the perfect shape to create gorgeous brows for us who have unfortunately thin, sparse or pale brow hairs.
