Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

I use this to remove my makeup and then follow with a lather& rinse product (right now, Purity Made Simple). This balm melts makeup off my face—and i wear a lot of makeup. Even stage makeup would be no match for this. I could see drier skins really loving this, and all skins loving this in the wintertime. I agree with others that a spatula should be included with this. I am not sure if i …Read more

This sadly has been reformulated and is now a ghost of its former self. The version in the blue-capped bottle was awesome—-in every way: color match, wear, coverage. I bought this, thinking that only the bottle design was different. How very wrong i was. Within minutes, this oxidized —-it went very dark and very orange. So now.........i am forced to search online and begin the quest for a …Read more

I needed a brow product and decided to try this. I bought the Medium to Dark Brown shade; i have very dark brown hair & eyes (Asian). This color works perfectly for me. It stays on all thru my shift and wears nicely. I like the straigthtforward simple compact as well—packaging matters to me. I looked at the Benefit brow products but i cannot handle their packaging as it looks and feels …Read more

I sadly cannot find anything positive about this product. Shade selection is limited, i don’t think any of these shades would suit the redheaded ladies. The packaging is not very nice, with a shiny silver front that’s kind of loud. A completely transparent front would look much better. There is no place in the compact for the brush which is very inconvenient, even though the brush is not that …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

Oct/20/2017

I was looking for an effective cleanser, more straightfoward than luxe, and not terribly expensive. My sister uses this and swears by it. This cleanses my face without drying or stripping. I have somewhat oily skin and have not suffered any ill effects— redness, irritation, breakouts- from using this. It cleanses effectively, and mercifully, rinses away easily. I moisten skin with a little …Read more

I received a mini of this as a 100-pt perk. I am not really a liquid lipstick person but the shade appealed to me. It is a beautiful brick rose color, i am NC 30, and i feel very pretty in this. It really lasts (for hours) but feels light and comfortable. I put this on and forgot about it......meaning i did not have to re-apply. This would be perfect for a workday, for an event, or anytime …Read more

My sister gifted me with this, saying that it reminded her of an old favorite of ours, Max Factor 2000 Calorie. I was able to build both length and thickness. I did not have any smudging or flaking. When the time for removal came, it washed off easily, without harsh rubbing, using baby shampoo. And i think the pink metallic tube is pretty. My only complaint with this.....and it is a big …Read more

Loose Powders - Maybelline New York - Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder

Oct/10/2017

I am apparently the lone dissenter regarding repurchase--i would not. I started using Ben Nye neutral set back in 2004 and finally the colorless powder thing has caught on. This does a good job of setting my makeup. It is lightweight--so much so that when i go to apply, a big cloud of noxious powder smoke puffs up. It would be nice to have an adjustable sifter on this. So i am going to tape …Read more

I started using Ben Nye neutral set back in 2004 and after that, the Dermablend pressed. I am glad that colorless powder has finally caught on. This is great for setting my makeup but i should add that my skin tends toward oily. I had no sensitivity or skin reactions with this powder. I like the packaging even though there is no mirror or space for a powder puff. But i tend to favor blotting …Read more

This is such a gorgeous soft pink. I had no idea how beautiful this would look once appled. On me this reads as soft pretty pink but not chalky. The brush is a nice, wide paddle that is so easy to work with. I applied two coats to my toenails and it has worn beautifully. I have to admit i have a weakness for pink polishes and even if you are not similarly afflicted, i say this is worth a …Read more
