Fragrances - Atelier Cologne - Cedre Atlas

I love this brand because all of the scents are light yet long-lasting. Cedre Atlas is the exception in that it stinks. Perhaps it's my body chemistry but all I get is alcohol no matter if it's 1sec or 5 hrs after I sprayed it on me. This is the only one I would never buy.

I love most things MJ but this was such a huge let-down! This scent is analogous to the type of scent that every tween wears like Juicy Couture. Not only is this floral and sickeningly-sweet, it is overpowering; the scent arrives before you do in a room! I would love for the formulators to change this into a wearable scent by decreasing the amounts of sweetness or floral in it. I just cannot …Read more

Blush - Barry M - Blusher - Rose No. 2

I thought this was a great way to try some bright colors since I've heard such good things about this brand. It did not disappoint. Bought 3 Barry M blushes and have been wearing this one for a few days. It wears for over 12 hours! I couldn't believe it. You'd be hard pressed to find some HE brands last this long. Of course, it could have to do with the combo of things I am wearing …Read more

Blush - Physicians Formula - pH matchmaker

Edit 02/25/13:
After trying this on for longer periods of time in 1 day, I conclude that this DOES NOT live up to the claim of 14 hour wear in terms of color; glitter, yes, I can still see it at night. The problem with this is the color: it goes on super bright and pigmented with just 1 sweep. If I put on more, I look like a member of the Ringling Circus. I have found that layering with a …

I've known from trial & error that if there's one consistent thing drugstore blushes lack, it's pigmentation. This can be a good or bad thing: good because you won't look clownish; bad because the color may not look as it does in packaging. Armed with that knowledge, I chose the darkest color, 830 Flush. I'm NC 30-35 and it shows up beautifully on my skin. In fact, 2 …Read more

Pressed Powders - REVLON - Nearly Naked Pressed Powder

The color range on these are horrible right now. As the product gets popular hopefully Revlon will add more yellow tones to this line.


I selected 020 Light Pale since the next one up looked too dark (I'm an NC 30-35). It has a powdery texture to it but not nearly as finely-milled as non drugstore brands. No overspray, comes with a velour sponge w/ a large see-thru window in …

Foundations - REVLON - Nearly Naked Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/29/2012

Update: Combined with the powder, this lasted over 8 hours for me with very little deterioration. While it didn't look freshly applied, about 75% was still there. Great formula but still returning because of the color.


This could work for you IF you have more beige or pink tones in your skin. For olive & yellow toned girls like me, this ends up looking slightly ashy and …

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow New Look Mascara

Unless your lashes are naturally sky-high and don't touch your face, this will smudge. I usually don't have a problem until later on in the day but this smudges within 1-2 hours.


I love the brush - it covers even the tiniest hairs. I do have to wipe off excess mascara before I apply (in the tube) and use a lash comb as it applies thickly. The formula does not hold a …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Clear Pore Cleanser Mask

Dec/29/2012

I went to Target looking for a cheap, clay mask but to my surprise, I had a hard time finding ANY mask. I didn't see any of the Freemans or Queen Helenes that I grew up on.


So I bought this for $6 which I thought was pricey since I'm used to drugstore masks being $3 (haven't shopped for masks in DS since I was 18). It sat in my cabinet for a while but I should …

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

Dec/29/2012

For a drugstore product, this is pretty spendy ($10) and useless. It doesn't cover dark circles well or evenly. I bought this in the neutralizer shade since it has tons of yellow in it. All it did was settle into lines and looked very unnatural and cakey. The applicator always pumps out too much product. Colorwise, it was great; coverage is like your typically under pigmented DS …Read more
