Lipstick - Napoleon Perdis - Devine Goddess in Olympia

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/28/2013

I bought the colors Calypso & Olympia. I took Calypso back becsuse it looked too bright & unnatural. I LOVE Olympia. I have berry colored lips, so it is like a "nude" for me. The formula goes on well & is packed with pigment. It doesn't dry or irritate my lips. It looks natural on. I usually prefer lipgloss. Olympia is my new favorite lipstick hands down!

Lipstick - Napoleon Perdis - Divine Goddess Lipstick In Calypso

Sorry to be the lone dissenter, but the color Calypso didn't work for me. I thought it would when I tested it at the store, so I bought it. It looked like a blue based fushia-red on me. It was very bright & when it faded a bit it looked even brighter & looked synthetic & unnatural. I kept trying to "give it a chance" for 3-4 days. However, the whorish clown look it …Read more

Lip Gloss - COVERGIRL - Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm

4.0

Jul/16/2013

I purchased Haute Pink. It is pigmented, as it didn't look washed out over my berry colored lips. The first one I bought slid out of the tube. I am sure Cover Girl would replace it if asked. I loved the color, so I bought two more. It doesn't taste like much and does not smell perfumey. It did not cause ANY allergic reaction. It didn't moisturize much but didn't cause dry or …Read more

Hair Treatments - Ion - Crystal Clarifying Treatment

Excellent product. If you use it at home, use soft water with the packet. I have well water, so I use a little bottled water. I have also used it while visiting relatives with soft city water. My hair stylist did the treatment for me the last time I got a trim. She has city water & I was able to sit under the dryer. It's her salon...so she can do what she wants. My hair feels & looks …Read more

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Mascara

5.0

Mar/03/2013

This is my HG mascara. It lengthens and thickens my lashes. I don't like the full size in almost any mascara. Large mascaras seem clumpier and to dry out quicker.I bought the Lash Amplifying Duo. You get a mini lash serum and mini Dior Show. It has better staying power than other mascaras I have tried. It also doesn't run if my eyes tear up a little from allergies.

Top/Base Coats - Orly - Bonder Rubberized Basecoat

Feb/17/2013

I LOVE this rubberized base coat more than any base coat. I was not impressed by OPI, Piggy Polish, Essie BASECOATS etc. As other reviers have noted, u need to leave a little dry time between layers. I read about the Bonder sandwich on line. If ur nails r weak, I would recommend Orly Nailtrition somewhere in the mix. I used 2 layers of Bonder, 2 layers of Essie polish, a layer of Bonder & …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Smitten

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2013

I bought 3 of these Revlon balms and I almost took Cherish back before I tried it. Ironically, it is my favorite of all three. I have pale skin and darkly pigmented lips. Smitten balm goes on bright, but looked darker than Lovesick. I apply and blot. Then I apply gloss or lipstick and gloss. Of the colors I tried, Lovesick and Smitten go on garishly bright and if not blotted and subdued look …Read more

Feb/06/2013

I bought 3 of these Revlon balms and I almost took this one back before I tried it. Ironically, it is my favorite of all three. I have pale skin and darkly pigmented lips. Most often when I try colors that are lighter than my lip color they look weird to me. This gloss goes on semi sheer. I apply and blot. Then I apply gloss or lipstick and gloss. When I first tried it, I asked the opinion …Read more

Eyes - Unlisted Brand - Thera Tears - Liguid Gel Eye Drops

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2013

Thera Tears Liquid Gel eye drops are the best drops I have ever used. You cannot use them while wearing contacts. You can use them at night or when you are wearing glasses. If you have dry eyes, these drops provide lubrication and make your eyes feel less "tired". I haven't tried the daytime formula by the same brand as it looks like a thinner, less intense product. I have …Read more
