The best eye smudge brush ever made! I love it!!!!! It is actually quite versatile...you can create a perfect thin or thick line, smudge the line, and use it as a shader brush....I use it for almost all products on the eye area...it is the perfect size to apply either alot or a little product...nice long handle that stays in great shape! Excellent!

Cleansers - C.O. Bigelow - Gentle Oil Absorbing Clay Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2008

This product has kaolin and rosemary in it...and well...it stings like others have mentioned but I just consider that antiseptic and that it is cleaning my skin. However, where this product really fails is in the lather or lack there of...it is like putting clay, that is in the consistency of water, onto your face with no lather...so you will find yourself putting it on and not knowing whether …Read more

Moisturizers - L'Occitane - Almond Apple Velvet Concentrate [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/17/2008

I really love this product! I have combo/oily skin and this has apple vinegar in it to keep the oil at bay but also hydrates the skin well. It leaves my skin feeling very silky and smooth and never too heavy. The smell is amazing and it is not sticky (I hate sticky and filmy moisturizers). The overall quality of my skin is better from using this. It smells like a jolly rancher now that I …Read more

Skincare - Body - ORIGINS - Silkening Body Spritz

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/11/2008

I really like this...it does silken the skin and right after the shower it really absorbs quickly and the moisturization lasts for hours and hours! I love the idea of the 360 degree angle bottle dispensing capability...I can actually get the spray on my back really easily. The smell is strong but it is so fresh and very pure. ~$25USD for a relatively small amount, that's why I took one …Read more

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Straight

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2008

Did not work! I always test sections of my hair when I blow dry and the section I used with this just got more frizzy and did not straight, the section that I used Redken on got straight in no time...so needless to say I put this up for swap and it may work for certain hair types but if you have curly ringlet (3b-3c) hair...think nicole kidman before all the chemical straightening...then this …Read more

Highlighters - CHANEL - Les Perles de Chanel - Pearl Face Effects

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2008

I love chanel....but this has to be the worst highlighter the company has ever made...you shell out upwards of $40-50 for nothing but the double C logo. I mean I have the ruban perle sunlight and moonlight and love them, but this highlighter is useless. The little balls are pretty but I mean they have no effect. They barely show up and the compact gets so messy and the colors get easily mixed …Read more

Powder - Laura Geller New York - Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation

Feb/27/2008

I really wanted to like this...however, it made me so dark...it looked like I had just come back from a island resort or something...right in the middle of winter...so it was strange and I did see a sort of oompa loompa effect happening, but the product did cover well without being cakey and is super quick in terms of application! I will only repurchase the lighter shade. BTW...I have …Read more

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Angel Garden of Stars Peony Eau de Parfum

4.0

Feb/09/2008

I really love this perfume. IMO, I think it's the best smelling of the four stars series. It has a light, more flowery version of the original Angel perfume. However, I do not like the packaging, I mean it is a nice and very decorative bottle but the point on the cap is way too sharp and has poked me a few times. That being said, I feel this is a perfect alternative to the original …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - HerStyler Tourmaline

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/03/2007

I really like my Herstyler. I have the tourmaline one in pink. It comes in black, purple, or pink. They also have the herstyler forever and herstyler seasons, but this is the newer model made with tourmaline ceramic plates. It is fixed at 400F. It straightens my hair as well, if not better, than the Sedu that I shelled out $125USD for, this herstyler sells for around $100 in malls. It comes …Read more

Moisturizers - Kiehl's - Sodium PCA Oil Free Moisturizer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2007

This is the only moisturizer I use. I love it! I have combination skin, so this is perfect moisturization for my skin. It soaks right into the skin, leaving a non-oily yet hydrating finish. Some people do not like the jar, but I prefer it since you can utilize every last amount of product. It is more economical to buy the 4.0oz jar. There is no scent and it can be used after the herbal blue …Read more
