Wow....where to start. I chose this foundation as a freebie from Ulta. I'm so glad I did. I am about a week into this and I want to sing all the praises BUT....there are several factors I simply can't account for with this limited use. My skin is normal/combo, aging, and oh-so-sensitive. The weather has taken a sudden turn straight to winter so it is unseasonably cold, windy, and …Read more

Toners - Dermalogica - AGE Smart Antioxidant Hydramist

I have already purchased multiple times. I love the way this smells. It is hydrating and soothing when my skin feels tight or irritated. I love this toner. A bottle lasts two or three months and I use it religiously twice each day and I don't skimp on the spritzes.

Am I unaware of the cost? At $41, I can forgo a couple of calorie laden coffee drinks and save my skin from sugar …

Primer/ Corrector - IT Cosmetics - No. 50 Collagen Veil Anti-Aging Primer

Useless. This did nothing as a primer and I absolutely would not recommend this as a "serum" for any skincare regimen. It did not make any pores disappear. It did not create a smooth, primed surface for liquid or powder.
It did not moisturize at all. And it is generally uncomfortable on my skin. The fake orange smell is out of place. Just weird and like IT is trying to fill …

Meh - return. This is just ok to me. Purchased in light which is decent match. I prefer everything to this: Silk Naturals, Jane Iredale, Mineral Fusion, Tarte, Laura Mercier....I literally prefer any other powder.

Even though I try not to weigh product performance with price, I'm doing it here. If this were just $10, I might keep it and use it up running out the door to run …

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

My lashes are long and very straight. I struggle with keeping curl. This mascara coats every lash nicely and does not pull the curl out. YAY!

My second issue is that all mascaras seem to migrate under my eye giving me raccoon eyes by lunch or earlier. 99% of the time I only coat upper lashes so the running of the mascara is extra frustrating. This formula stays put and does not …

Sadly this must go back. #1. Glitter. As far as I'm concerned, glitter has no place in a daily staple product. I had no idea until I started to examine my face close up. For stage or tv, ok. For an adult woman with an adult profession, this is a no-no.

I purchased this in Light which seemed like a good, slightly dark match for my NC20 skin. It oxidized on me and had an odd …

Foundations - REVLON - ColorStay Full Cover Foundation

Purchased in Buff (same as I wear for colorstay) which is decent match without being too pink or orange. Requires warming up with powder.

I have sensitive skin with a normal, balanced oil levels. My concerns are covering redness and not settling into pores. Plenty of time to work with it. A damp sponge has been my favorite way to apply.

This applies like a dream. Very easy …

Hair Styling Tools - REVLON - One-Step Hair Dryer & Voluminizer

I have fine, thick color-treated hair cut in a long shag resting below my shoulders. My primary goal is healthy hair but lots of VOLUME. I live in a 4 season climate that leans humid and warm.

I'm just not impressed. This didn't dry my hair any faster than my dryer and it did not add volume. As a matter of fact I was left with hair that was mostly dry and still needed a lot …

This product is just okay to me. It seemed difficult to achieve a consistent result. My pot started to dry out and become more difficult to work with in about 3 months. I would not repurchase this again. So many better products out there.

Foundations - BECCA - Ultimate Coverage 24 - Hour Foundation

Sep/24/2018

I returned this almost immediately. The coverage is good. Color match was good. The smell is bad. It has a texture that was difficult to apply and never fully felt like it set. As always I try many techniques before I write a product off. Brush, sponge, primer, sunscreen only, powder, setting spray. On top of that it had zero lasting power. None. Of the three or so foundations I'm …Read more
