Cleansers - ORIGINS - Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Cleanser

Jul/18/2006

Fantastic cleanser that goes with the Weil line at Origins. It's a somewhat emulsified oil cleanser (think liquid margarine) that rinses clean and takes your makeup with it. It comes in a tube and is very scented and kind of stings around the eye area if you try to take off eye makeup with it. I think Origins Pure Cream fans might like this, but not oily or combo types as it is very …Read more

Treatments (Face) - ORIGINS - Dr Weil Plantidote Mega Mushroom Face Serum

Okay, I bought this totally skeptical that this would calm my irritated, dry, roseacea flaring skin. I am now a total believer--it really did calm and soothe my skin within a couple of days. I have now been using the Weil line (cleanser, serum, and cream) for 3 weeks and my skin is doing very well--greatly improved. It's a light lotion consistency packaged in a dark green pump bottle. I use …Read more

Jul/18/2006

This is a very emollient face cream (sort of buttery) that is surprisingly non-irritating for all the plant extracts and essential oils that it contains. It's pretty aromatic also, so I was really leery about trying this. For all the claims that it made about combating redness and irritation, I was sure with the ingredients I would have problems. My skin has been changing from a combo/acne …Read more

Mascara - Max Factor - Lash Perfection in Deep Blue

May/12/2006

Oh, I like this! I found it for $3.99 at the pharmacy and cannot believe the quality of this product. First off, the color "deep blue" is a dark blue that is very flattering to my green eyes. It looks very dark on and does not appear like I am wearing blue mascara. Secondly, the brush works very well and prevents clumps when trying to build volume with multiple coats. Thirdly, the …Read more

LM makes the best glosses! I think this color is my favorite--it's a very sheer shimmery and shiny gloss with a hint of lavendar--so nice for simple makeup days! I'm ppp (I use Becca Porcelain and Sand), with dark hair and green eyes.

I picked this up for $6 at the drugstore and I kind of like it. Except for the smudging. Really, it runs and that is not normally a problem for me. Definitely does not last. Okay that's the bad news. The good, is that it gives a very nice, non clumpy, fringy, false-eyelash effect. After curling, I use 2 coats of primer and at least 2 coats of mascara. You do have to apply carefully and the …Read more

I'm not loving this one. Not hating it either, just not a rave. Primer end is a comb--too much product comes out and blobs on. Need to wipe a lot off with tissue before applying. Too much time. Then, the mascara--awful wand. Clumpy clumpy clumpy and awkward for corners of eyes--brush has a squared tip instead of a tapered end and it boinks into your eyelid leaving you to retouch shadow and …Read more

I just bought this in the bright pink color Kiss. I've been sampling it for a while and recently received a GC at Ulta, and decided to spring for it. I am very happy with it. It makes your lips kind of numb instead of stinging like some of the other plumpers, and it seems to impart some plumping. I have decent lips, but they tend to get dry. It feels like this exfoliates and then moisturizes …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Paves Flawless Straightening Balm

Apr/30/2006

Afer all the hype, I bought this whole line and was very disappointed. As other's have noted, this balm looks like phyto's defrissant which I also use. The similarities end there. I have never had my hair dry "crunchy" using a straightening balm, and I did not expect it here. Nor did I appreciate it. I also did not appreciate the flakes in the ends of my hair and on my suit …Read more

I was very excited to try this line, hoping it would be a convenient (and cheaper) alternative to my usual products. I alternate between Redken's Butter Treat, Bonacure Color Treatment, and FF Shea Butter Conditioner mostly, so I when I read the ingredients on this Paves conditioner, I saw some similarities that made me want to try it. Unfortunately, it really didn't seem to penetrate …Read more
