I was semi-devastated to learn that my previous Clinique foundation had been discontinued. I live in the deep south. You can use primer and painstakingly apply foundation and walk outside and the humidity just turns it into an unsightly mess. The previous foundation held up amazingly well to the humidity. A salesperson suggested Stay Matte. It's a very good foundation. Not great, but very …Read more

Haute Honeysickle is gorgeous! It's a peachy nude shade that would probably compliment most fair to medium shades. I've purchased other shades, too. Each of them are so hydrating and make your lips appear more plump. There's no gunky feel or bad taste. I have yet to find one FLOWER Beauty product that hasn't impressed me. This is no exception. I bought three lip butters, gave …Read more

Eyeliner - Prestige - Skin Loving Minerals Eyeliner

Perhaps the worst eyeliner I've ever used. These eyeliners are not creamy at all. Prepare to bear down and drag on the delicate skin around your eyes. And then repeat. No color? Don't be surprised. I bought two shades of this eyeliner and both lacked color payoff. The application was pointless. And even after going over again, you could barely see a hint of color. Definite waste of …Read more

I bought three mascaras in Rimmel's lash accelerator line. This review is for the Volume Accelerator. It's my least favorite of the three. The tube and wand are big and bulky, which makes it difficult to apply the mascara. It's also quite clumpy. Even if you run the wand along the inner rim of the tube, it still seems gunky and is messy to apply. The size of the wand makes it …Read more

FLOWER is my latest beauty obsession. The nail polishes are another marvelous product from Drew Barrymore's cosmetic line. I bought one color a couple weeks ago and my sister-in-law asked about it. She never comments on my nails. Her question started me on a long-winded rave about this polish. I've since bought two more colors and plan to buy more. All of them are beautiful. They are …Read more

This shadow is absolutely amazing. AMAZING!

I bought Awesome Blossom and Orchid-ing Around. I didn't have high expectations and after reading negative reviews here thought I had wasted my money, but I cannot say enough good things about these shadows.

Both sparkle and make my green eyes pop. I think these two shades are universally flattering. Awesome Blossom is a …

One reviewer warned others not to buy this "cult favorite." I so, so regret not taking her advice.
I splurged on Diorshow after reading a particular celebrity uses this mascara to create lush lashes. Later read elsewhere the same celebrity uses Maybelline mascaras! It wasn't just the star who swayed me. I also read many makeup artists use Diorshow.
Imagine my excitement …

This retinol treatment with vitamins offers results. Even better? It's more affordable than similar products and probably just as effective at combating the skin issues you're battling. I think it may even outperform similar products that cost twice the price and would recommend it to anyone who's unhappy with uneven skin texture, size of pores or early signs of aging. The …Read more

Jan/02/2014

My skin is sensitive and prone to breakouts. I'm sure many of you can relate. Often a product that's soothing, worsens your acne/rosacea, or if the product helps a skin condition, it's drying to sensitive skin. This is a wonderful cleanser. An aesthetician introduced me to it several years ago. My skin is combination - more on the oily side. I cannot tolerate fragrances and many …Read more

I noticed small bumps all over my face after using GloPressed Base for four days. I used it in the days immediately after a chemical peel. The peel and powder were the only changes to my skincare routine.
I haven't had this reaction to other foundations after chemical peels, which makes me suspect GloPressed Base clogged my pores. That's a shame. The coverage is terrific. I could …
