Cleansers - Jergens - All-Purpose Face Cream

I've been using this as my nighttime cleanser for the past three weeks and I can't believe the difference in my skin in that short amount of time! It easily dissolves my makeup and wipes off well with a few passes of a warm wash cloth. My only complaint is the fragrance, but I've found that if I follow the cleansing with my normal moisturizer it seems to neutralize the fragrance …Read more

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

I so wanted to love this bronzer because it has so many things going for it--it's matte, it's finely milled, and although expensive it lasts a long time. However, with my fair cool-toned skin it always looks orange. On somebody with a more neutral or warm skin tone it would look great, but for those of you with cool undertones, proceed with caution.

Eyeliner - RIMMEL - ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Liner - Nude

Mar/09/2015

I bought this based on many YouTube recommendations for using this in the waterline as a subtle, natural eye-opener to make you look more awake. The product is extremely creamy which results in a messy application unless I am very careful. However, the reason this only gets one lippie from me is that the color completely clashes with my eyes and skin tone. I have extremely cool-toned skin and …Read more

Lipstick - wet n wild - Mega Last 906D Wine Room

These Mega Last lipsticks are a great value with amazing color payoff. Wine Room is a beautiful wine color that is a bit dark for my fair skin at full strength, but provides a great stain of color if I apply it with my finger or blot it down. Using it as a stain is a great way for me to wear it as a "my lips but better" everyday look.

Lipstick - wet n wild - Mega Matte 907C Mauve Outta Here

4.0

Sep/14/2014

I'm not sure why this is called "Mauve" since on the lips it's a fairly bright raspberry pink color that is a tad bright for my fair skin. I usually wear this as more of a stain--either by blotting it down or, more often, by applying with my finger for an "I just ate a red popsicle" stain to my lips. It has great staying power and is a steal, especially since …Read more

I purchased this foundation in Classic Ivory. I used it over a primer and applied well and gave my skin a unique satiny finish that was beautiful. However, within 30 minutes of applying my skin started to itch horribly and if I could have gone home from work to remove it, I would have! I wasn't sure if the itching was due to the foundation itself or perhaps a reaction with the primer, so …Read more

I love the way this foundation applies and lays on my skin and the price can't be beat. My skin looks flawless....for about 30 minutes...then I look like I had a bad experience with a self tanner. It is utterly amazing how FAST this foundation oxidizes and turns orange on my skin. I have fair skiin with a definite cool/pink-blue undertone and the oxidation is extremely noticeable on my …Read more

I admit, I'm a sucker for anything pink and for $1.99 at CVS, I couldn't pass up this cute pink polish. In the bottle the color is a creamy light-medium pink with no sparkles, glitter, or shimmer of any sort. On the nails it dries one to two shades darker to a medium pink. I love the color and don't regret the purchase, although I wouldn't buy it again for the following …Read more

If you're willing and have the time to apply upwards of 4 coats, this is a gorgeous polish with lots of pinkish-purple holo glitter. It would probably also be a pretty, but not unique, layering polish. Unlike some of the others, I didn't have problems with drying time. I wouldn't say it was a "fast" dry, but it was faster than average.

I have never understood the hype over this mascara. I tried it for the first time as a teenager after reading a recommendation in a magazine and hated how it made my lashes clump. Through the years I'd see reviews raving about how this was the BEST mascara ever and I'd try it again....and I'd hate it all over again. I have now given up on trying this mascara...with one …Read more
