Brows - REVLON - ColorStay Brow Pencil

5.0

Nov/21/2017

I gotta show this thing some love. The texture is ideal- good and waxy, but dry, so it won't slide off... it lives up to the Colorstay name. The slant tip actually works to help create clean lines, and stays miraculously in shape for the life of the pencil. I'm repurchasing now!

Cleansers - Olay - Age Defying Classic Cleanser

5.0

Nov/16/2017

I buy this cleanser over and over again, for so many reasons.
I love the consistency, and have yet to find another like it- light and lotion-y, with sparse, tiny exfoliating beads.
It contains a small amount of salicylic acid- probably not at the right ph for exfoliating (who knows?) But...
I use this as a sort of in-shower facial. I cleanse normally with it first, then use another …

Shampoo - Clairol - Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/04/2017

I bought this because I actually *wanted* a cheap shampoo that would strip my hair (for occasional use) and I liked the scent, and it was on clearance. Instead of squeaky-clean, I got greasy roots. I gave the second (free) bottle to my son, who had the same experience. So, yeah, no... not even for $2.

BB Cream - Skin79 - Super+ Beblesh Balm BB Triple Function Hot Pink SPF25/PA++

Apr/29/2016

I am married to this stuff. After my first couple of bottles, I dared stray to other foundations/ tinted moisturizers/ BB creams. I finally learned my lesson, and now will buy nothing else for this purpose, as long as it is available.
My skin is very fair and cool-toned, verging on pink... When I have tried in the past to use a more yellow-leaning or even "neutral" foundation to …

Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes Rich

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/29/2016

I don't need, or expect, an eye cream to do anything more than moisturize my under-eye skin without causing a reaction. All About Eyes has always delivered for me, and, now that I am in my 40's and a bit dryer overall, "Rich" gives the same results of the original. I have to (lightly) apply powder under my eyes to keep my mascara from smudging, and AAE Rich keeps the powder …Read more

Hair - Unlisted Brand - Coconut Oil

Mar/25/2016

"If you ran out or lost this product would you buy it again?" ...Um, if I ran out of oxygen would I look for more? YES.
I use it daily for all of the usual purposes- makeup remover, body moisturizer, a pre-shampoo treatment, etc... but, there's more.
This is why I kind of wish there was a lady-product category in which I could review coconut oil, because two of my …

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz

5.0

Mar/25/2016

I have this in "Caramel". I love the teensy fine point and workable texture of this brow pencil. It is neither oily nor dry, doesn't require any tugging to apply and doesn't crumble everywhere. It is perfect for out lining where my brows *would* be , if I had brows. I fill in with Anastasia Dip Brow in "Auburn", and after that sets I go back and fake some texture …Read more

Lipstick - Lancôme - Color Design - Vintage Rose

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2016

I am a redhead with very pale, cool-toned skin and freckles, and this is my very favorite mlbb (eh... maybe it's tied with Lauder's Rose Tea, but moving on...) I love Vintage Rose because it manages mlbb without any of those dull greige tones found in so many "nudes", nor is it too bright. It's a soft color, but not shy or boring.
It is a warm , light-to-midtone rose …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2016

There is no real magic to this lip balm, but I don't need magic from a lip balm. I need a quick hit of moisture when my lips feel dry, or a base for lip colors that can be drying on bare lips. This stuff is simple. It smells fresh and pretty, leaves a *faint* rosy glow and doesn't contain a ton of scary chemicals. It is inexpensive enough that I can afford several, to have stashed …Read more

Sep/07/2015

After being so cruelly thrown into medical menopause at the underripe young age of 40, my skin almost instantly began to show the signs you might expect- dryness, decreased elasticity, even the beginnings of the dreaded crepe. (*Shudders in horror*) Yes, I use coconut oil for everything, like a good girl... but my skin now drinks it up like a serum, and needs something with petrolatum on top, to …Read more
