Foundations - COVER FX - Total Cover Cream Foundation

1.0

Nov/07/2014

When I first began using this cream foundation, I loved it. The shade was perfect and the coverage was a dream. But then I began noticing how oily my T zone looked a couple hours after application. Well, okay, nothing is perfect, so I just used some blotting papers here and there.

However, after a couple weeks of continued use, I noticed I was breaking out. All over my face. I …

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Sensitive Facial Cleanser with Cotton Extract

1.0

Jan/13/2012

If you want your cleanser that is hard to rinse off your face and hands and leaves a greasy film on your face, you'll love this cleanser. This stuff was gross. I bought it today at noon and within a half hour it was in the trash. Normally, I'd try to salvage a newly bought product that turned out to be a dud - like using it to quickly wash my face in the shower or keeping it to use when …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Cetaphil - Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion For Dry Sensitive Skin

Oct/23/2009

I hate the dry, tight, hard feeling that my skin gets during the winter months. Over the years, I've tried any heavy-duty lotion I could find to alleviate my severely dry winter skin. But nothing really seemed to work. And the lotions that did seem to work left my skin coated in heavy oils. I never felt like any lotion really sunk into my skin.


But this lotion ended my …

Hair - Phyto - Phytospecific Relaxer Index 1

Jun/12/2009

This relaxer has given me my life back. Let me explain: over two years ago I stopped relaxing my hair because it had become damaged and thin. I was using a cheapie relaxer and not conditioning my hair enough. I decided to go natural and from Feb 2007 until yesterday afternoon, I nursed my hair back to better condition. But my natural hair was starting to be a hassle: blow drying and flat ironing …Read more

I love, love, love this lipcolor. Its such a favorite that I have two tubes! Its very sheer, but buildable. What I love most about it is how moisturizing it is - it leaves your mouth moist without being sticky or too wet as can be the case with some lipsticks/lipglosses. Moreover, the smell is great. It reminds me of cookies. This is definitely something I wear everyday since its so easy to swipe …Read more

I love this stuff and have gone through so many bottles of it since discovering it about 6 months ago. I use it primarily after I've towel dried my hair and before blow drying. I was amazed the first couple of times after I used it because my hair was so soft and shiny and it really does cut down on frizz and fluff. The best thing about this product is that you really can't use too much …Read more

Eyeliner - CLINIQUE - Cream Shaper For Eyes - Egyptian

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/23/2008

I love this eyeliner! It is so awesome because you can wear it during the day (i.e at work) AND/OR at night simply by adjusting how much you apply. During the day, a few light-handed strokes along my top eyelash gives a polished look with a hint of shimmer - meaning it kinda doubles as an eye shadow too (great for mornings when I need to get out the door fast). Its a subtle way to look a little …Read more

Mascara - Prescriptives - Lash Builder Mascara Basecoat

Sep/22/2008

Ehh, its okay. Personally, I prefer using what I've been using for years on my lashes...baby powder. I sprinkle a pinch in the palm of my hand, take my finger and lightly swipe it on my lashes. Then I sweep on my mascara. It thickens without clumping and keeps my mascara from flaking during the day. Just to make sure I wasn't imagining things, I used the prescriptives lash primer on one …Read more

Fragrances - Bobbi Brown - Almost Bare

3.0

It smells wonderful. However...its unfortunate that the scent fades so quickly. Less than an hour after I applied it, it was gone...I could barely smell the fragrance on my inner elbows/wrists (where I had applied it). If I am going to wear a fragrance, I want it to have some lasting power. Because of this, I returned the fragrance to Nordstrom.
