Was pleasantly surprised, particularly by the color range that offered a viable choice (Golden Beige) for my light, yellow-toned Asian coloration. The scent is vaguely paint like, which is
preferable to a fake and skin-irritating perfumery. It takes a while to set and the coverage is medium. The effect is smooth, and if I were young again and line-free I would be absolutely delighted. The …

Cleansers - Garnier - Nourishing Cleansing Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2014

Love this stuff! It is much cheaper and, I think, more effective than DHC's cleansing oil that inspired this. I alternate it with my HG Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser. My sensitive, dry skin is softer and more, dare it say it, radiant, and with no irritation since I began using it.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - GREAT LASH Lots of Lashes Mascara

4.0

May/29/2014

This is a superb mascara for me because the brush really reaches most of my double/triple lashes and coats them nicely. Sometimes we don't like certain mascaras and I think the problem may be in having the right brush for our kind of lashes (thick, thin, straight, whatever). On the downside, it does flake moderately but I don't notice it smearing. Overall, almost a perfect mascara. …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Magic Nude Liquid Powder [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/10/2014

Thoroughly surprised at how much I love this product. At first a little leery of the "liquid-to-powder" transformation, I bought it on impulse (with special pricing and "extra bucks" from CVS) and it has since replaced True Match as my go-to foundation. It has just enough coverage to blur slightly ruddy cheeks but not so much that it cakes after a long day or creases into …Read more

Cleansers - Nature's Gate - In the Beginning Gentle Cleansing Lotion

Feb/16/2014

This was $7.99 at TJ Maxx, so I gave it a shot. Overall very pleased! Not overpoweringly scented, and it's creamy and mostly efficient . Perhaps unfairly I compare it to my HG cleanser--Pauls's Choice Recovery Skin Cleanser, which melts off my (non-waterproof ) eye makeup like a dream. This cleanser takes a little more work, particularly with mascara. I like the precision of the …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Bombshell Volume

Dec/18/2013

The package is the best thing about this product, and only on an esthetic level. (The brush design is nothing to write home about.) The base mascara is decent but the stuff on the other side is practically budge-proof, and not in a good way. I still find flecks of it near the lash roots several days later! The final visual effect of the dual application is simply clumpy. A very poor mascara …Read more

Shampoo - OGX - Thick & Full Biotin & Collagen Shampoo

Aug/22/2013

It was on sale at Walgreen's for $5.99 and I had a $2 coupon, so I can't complain about the price! It didn't seem to pull any color out, and it gives adequate body without the addition of a thickening styling agent. Unlike many "thickening" shampoos it imparts softness as well. For me, this works about as nicely as the much more expensive Pureology extra-body shampoo I …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Proclaim Glossing Polish Frizz Eliminating Shiner

Surprising how many enthusiastic reviews this stuff garners, since I probably tossed my mostly-full bottle when I moved. Never did I observe any noticeable shine on my hair after usage, and it certainly did nothing to protect it from heat styling. To each, her own, I guess. (For the record, I have wavy, color-treated Asian hair.)
