Eyeliner - CHANEL - Stylo Yeux Waterproof

Hate to rain on anyone's parade but this is not a good product. I bought it in Espresso (i.e. dark brown) because I'm always looking for an eyeliner that's easy to apply that doesn't bleed after 10 minutes onto my upper lid. Well I'll say that the color is good (not too hard a look) but the saleslady said that what's good about it is it doesn't "drag" …Read more

I read a review in the Financial Times by a columnist named Jo Baird who said she's obsessed with it. I had been unhappy with my daily makeup, a medium coverage 50 spf cc. So I thought I'd give it a try. The Chanel stylist put on medium light and I loved it. Today, I put it on over Ceravie spf 30 moisterizer and dabbed my nose area with the old cc cream to tone down the redness. I …Read more

I bought this in Deep Aubergine, which is lighter and softer than a pure black. The color is beautiful: much less "hard" than a black, liquid eyeliner. It does go on easily. But that's where the good news ends. It smears onto the area under my eyebrows almost immediately and lasts, on the eyelids, 2 hours max. Using two different brands of eyelid primer did not change this …Read more

This stuff is the best! As other reviewers have indicated, it smells divine, and leaves skin soft and clean and better yet, leaves my undereye area looking like it has fewer lines. I was concerned that it might irritate my now super-sensitive skin but it does not. I do not, however, use it to remove make-up: I use that micellular water first. I had gotten it pretty inexpensively from a TV …Read more

BB Cream - Jane Iredale - Glow Time Full-Coverage Mineral BB Cream

May/24/2018

I bought this product, probably over a year ago, because I had run out of BB (or CC) cream and was in a fairly rural place where it was the only "luxury" brand I could easily find and buy. I even tried it on and compared it to another Jane Iredale product. It says that it's "full" coverage *(which I didn't know because I didn't read the package before I bought …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - La Mer - The Eye Balm Intense

Dec/12/2017

I had been using an eye serum and then special eye moisturizer, day and night, after using a sample of a cleansing product I'd found at my skin doctor's office. I noticed that not only did I have dry and peeling spots but suddenlyy, I had crow's feet. So, there was a promotion at my local makeup chain and I splurged on La Mer eye balm intense, which I now use both day and …Read more

Dec/12/2017

I had been using a cleanser, a sample of which I got at my skin doctor's office. Then winter hit and my skin had dry, ugly, peeling spots around my eyes, nose and upper lip. Well I started using this La Mer moisturizing cream, morning and night, and low and behold, the dryness disappeared. Yes, it is horrendously expensive but it is the best moisturizer I've ever used. I now use it …Read more

I tried this product on the spur of the moment at CVS. I had planned to buy another (more expensive though highly rated) eyeliner when I saw some millennials looking at the display. The clerk said yes, this was now very popular. So I went for it. At two bucks, what could I lose? Well I have to tell you I used it today for the first time, and it's sensational.It went on easily (I am …Read more

This product has thousands of good reviews (I know, I exaggerate) and a few bad ones. But I think overall, used with care, it's quite terrific. Face it, it won't replace vein surgery but it does give your legs a very nice, matte look so the veins (roadmaps in my case in some spots) are definitely less noticeable. And yes, you must take care to rub it in evenly all over your legs so …Read more

I found this product through Makeup Alley's new products email and I must say, it's a winner. I have been looking for a long-lasting, thin line liquid eyeliner forever! At 21.53 pounds sterling (about $35), it is far from cheap but I think it's worth it. I have gone through I don't know how many L'Oreal eyeliner types, and they all smear and wear off in the first two …Read more
