I was on a week long trip and forgot my shampoo (bioloage hydratherapie) so I ran in the first drug store I saw and grabbed this "moisturizing" shampoo thinking it would be a good enough stand in. My hair had never felt so dry and yucky in all my life as it did after using this. I have oily hair (I have to wash it EVERY day) and this just turned it into a tangled mess... no matter how …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Mary Kay - Satin Hands

I don't use the lotions because the smell is just too off putting for me. I however LOVE the scrub. I'm an OCD hand washer/hand sanitizer user and my hands get really rough and icky... this fixes that in an instant. In the summer I also use the scrub on my feet and though it's not indicated for it I've used it as a body scrub before fake tanning. I love the apricot smell …Read more

I have used Mary Kay Crystalline eyeshadow as a brow highlighter since high school. Thankfully my bestie has sold Mary Kay off and on the entire time so I've always gotten it for 1/2 off. The only Mary Kay cosmetic I like even a little.

I have received this as a gift twice. I know many people who love it but it's definitely not for me. The staying power is excellent, the smell lasts all day. Unfortunately it smells HORRIBLE on me. The last time I decided to give it a try I ended up taking a second shower that day because I just couldn't stand the smell.

I can't say much for the moisturizing properties but I LOVE this product. I use this to set my bare minerals foundation. It keeps it from looking powdery, and seems to really make it wear longer. I've never tried Fix+ so I can't make comparisons there. I have extremely sensitive skin and have never had any problems with this. It's also great for hot days, if you're …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

Feb/07/2012

After reading lots of good reviews I decided to give this a try... it was cheap so I figured why not. Color selection was decent and I found a very good match for my super pale skin (W1). I hated that the bottle was without a pump but overlooked that, like I said cheap and good reviews. I was terribly disappointed with the foundation though. It looked streaky and cakey on, I couldn't for …Read more

Boring bottle, lovely scent. When first sprayed on it is a little strong and seems to smell like peach skin on me (not unpleasant, just different) but after just a few minutes it mellows out and smells nice and fresh. My husband LOVES it.

Packaging is boring. Scent works for me... I've worn it on a regular basis for nearly 10 years now. I fell in love with in while I was in high school and I still love it. It doesn't come across as overly floral on me... and I don't get the comparison to Estee Lauder perfumes (every one of those I've ever tried has smelled like old lady to me). It is slightly aquatic as are …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Mia

Feb/07/2012

I had some break outs around my hairline when I first began using the Mia but after 5 weeks I guess I'm finished "purging" and my skin is wonderful. My face is so soft, and while in the beginning it seemed to dry my face out a little I found using this only once a day instead of twice fix that. My pores do seem to be clearer/smaller and makeup seems to go on better. I was a …Read more

Feb/07/2012

LOVE this. I read lots of awesome reviews and had a coupon so I finally broke down and decided to give this a try. Probably my best beauty buy of 2011. The colors are great to work with, I've had a little trouble blending the 2 darkest but otherwise everything is peachy. I have an extensive eyeshadow collection which has been neglected since purchasing this. Whether I'm going out …Read more
