Damn.

That's the first thing that came to mind when I looked in the mirror after being out all day after using this powder for the first time.

And that was a good "damn".

My skin has grown quite oily lately, which is very, very annoying. I was using the wrong cleanser on my face. It stripped out all the oils and made it go into overdrive as far as …

This is easily one of the best purchases I have ever made. Not only is this great as an all-purpose household cleanser (diluted in a spray bottle with water), it's gentle enough that I use it to clean my makeup brushes and to clean my face. At best, most cleansers I've used have done nothing to my face. This actually seems to help it. A few drops of this with some warm water ensure a …Read more

I have been looking for a nude/neutral liner to use on my waterline. "Moonstone" is a pretty good match for what I was looking for--not perfect, but pretty darn close color-wise. I grabbed it on impulse while browsing around Ulta, and I must say, I am pleasantly surprised.

Unlike another reviewer, I must disagree and say this is just fine to use as an eyeliner. I've used …

I was surprised at the small jar, but as others have said, a little of this product goes a long way. The scent is pleasant and not overwhelming. The texture is not too thick or thin. It's great for my dry skin, and it does not clog my pores and cause breakouts as some other heavy moisturizers have done. It is an eco-friendly product, which was a major draw for me--I have been on the search …Read more

My skin has become dry and sensitive over the past year. I have some unevenness to my skintone, but no really major blemishes, so I've been on the market for something with sheer coverage and a light feel.

Tarte's Smooth Operator is exactly what I have been looking for. On the back of the bottle is a long list of what the product is manufactured without--synthetic fragrances …

Fragrances - PENHALIGON'S - Bluebell

I was really hoping to like this, but unfortunately, this scent does not like my skin at all and just becomes a chemical spill. Instead of a crisp floral with a bit of a spicy dry down, like I was expecting, all I get is a really strong, uniformly unpleasant smell, like bathroom cleaner. The only good thing is that this is a terribly weak scent, so I did not suffer long.

I received a sample of this, and I think I'm going to be purchasing a bottle when my present "everyday" scent runs out. This is a truly lovely lavender scent; it wears nicely on my skin. It started off with a puff of sweet florals, but very quickly morphed into something more complex and tolerable--I was afraid this would smell too flowery on me, since those types of scents tend to …Read more

I really wanted to like this, because I'd heard so many good things about it. After having used it for the past four months though, I think I am going to have to shop around for a new BB Cream.

First of all, the packaging on this product is quite cute--very girly, but still functional. I like that it has a pump dispenser. You do not need a lot of product at all, so this will last …

Dec/12/2010

Not much to say about this that hasn't already been said. My skin is usually relatively blemish-free these days, but I do suffer from hormonal breakouts during that time of the month, and recovering from those usually takes a good week in and of itself.
I used this mask during said time of month and it didn't magically clear up my blemishes, but it did seem to curb it and …

Dec/12/2010

I received this product as a gift a year or so ago and didn't really try it until recently. And--wow. It really makes my cuticles soft, and if they are dry and cracked that is no longer a problem after applying any of this stuff.
My only beef with this is that it's rather thick and sticky, even after rubbing it in, and it takes a while for it to sink into my skin. To deal with this …
