Concealers - NYX Professional Makeup - Full Coverage Concealer Jar

1.0

Sep/10/2008

I bought this is Porcelene, and it was a great match for my nw15/20-ish skintone. It covers excellent and looks very natural. It's a very richly pigmented, creamy matte consistency.
<br></br>
It does contain mineral oil, if that is a problem for you, in fact this broke out my sensitive, moderately acne-prone, dry-ish skin and also made my mascara smudge undereye (even …

Cleansers - Boots - No7 Gentle Foaming Face Wash

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/10/2008

I bought this as I needed a new fragrance-free cleanser in a pinch, and I really like it! It removes all my eye makeup (I don't use waterproof stuff).
<br></br>
This gel/jelly formula foams up moderately using about a quarter-sized amount. It does contain colorants, but, surprisingly, it hasn't bothered my skin. I have dry, sensitive skin w/ mild eczema and this …

Sunscreen - Eucerin - Everyday Protection Face Lotion - Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Sep/10/2008

I really dig this sunscreen/facial lotion. I have dry, sensitive skin w/ mild eczema and it keeps me moisturized w/out being greasy or shiny.
<br></br>
It comes in a pump-bottle that dispenses just enough product to cover the face well in my experience. It's a creamy lotion that sinks in in 1-2 minutes, leaving no white cast and doesn't ball up when you apply …

Lotions/ Creams - Avon - Moisture Therapy Oatmeal Body Lotion

5.0

Sep/10/2008

I really like this moisturizer--I have both the hand cream and body lotions (I can see no difference other than the packaging, to be honest).
<br></br>
It has no fragrance, which is very important to me. The texture is somewhat watery and light and it sinks in relatively quickly. I have dry skin on my body especially. I use this out of the shower and never feel dry or …

Deodorants - Avon - On Duty Roll-On

I use the Unscented version. It works well on me. I'd say i am average-stinky. :P
<br></br>
It's a typical roll-on liquid deodorant/antiperspirant. They're often on sale for just $.99 and it works better than the Mitchum or Almay i used to use. Avon also doesn't animal-test, which is a plus in my book.
<br></br>
YAY deodorant!

Lipstick - MILANI - Sheer Color in Dolce Vita

4.0

Sep/10/2008

smooth, creamy, moist, stays an average length of time and has a nice vanilla scent. Dolce Vita is a very frosty white shade. semi-sheer + moderately shiny. It looks horrible even lightly applied on my nw20 skintone. I can't imagine who this l/s would look nice on to be frank, but if you are looking for a frosty white lippie, this should fit the bill!

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/10/2008

I've been using this for over a year. I have dryish, sensitive skin w/ mild eczema that is moderately acne-prone. It took my skin from splotchy and broken out to near-pristine, using a thin layer 2X a day after cleansing.
<br></br>
I like that it is PH-balanced, fragrance and colorant-free, and not animal-tested. It may seem more $ than drugstore treatments, but …

Primer/ Corrector - Avon - MagiX Face Perfector SPF 20

1.0

Sep/10/2008

I really wanted to like this product. It helped my blush and foundation/concealer stay truer and fought mild greasies, but broke me out in a matter of days horribly (this was my only facial routine change).
<br></br>
I have dryish, sensitive skin w/ eczema.

Magix has a dry, slippery consistency and a fresh but (in my opinion) gross scent …

Eyeliner - Jane Cosmetics - Mineral Gel Eyeliner - Black

4.0

Sep/10/2008

Using Lumene eye makeup primer, this stays on my top lids pretty well. It fades/transfers a bit after 8+ hours, but stays more or less true. I can't use it on my waterline--comes right off!
<br></br>
It's somewhat dry in consistency + matte black. I'd say it is more a cream/gel than a straight gel. It comes in a screw-top glass …

Lip Gloss - Avon - Glazewear in Berry Cool

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2008

i was disappointed w/ the somewhat sheerness of this particular shade (glazewears are billed as avon's opaque l/g). i would call berry cool a light-medium cool muted berry w/ moderate shimmer. the gloss is smooth and nonsticky and wears well ime.
<br></br>
comes in a plastic tube w/ flocked doe-foot applicator. pleasant, light, but indescribeable scent.
