I love any product that makes me look better with minimal effort. My hair is long, fine and straight, and when I air-dry normally, it looks...long, fine and straight. Bb Texture gives me texture, lift at the roots, and a little body throughout. disclaimer: I love that kind of gritty, second-day hair with what I like to think of as "good frizz." Think Clemence Poesy hair - this …Read more
Holy HG!!! I'd used L'Oreal/Maybelline mascaras for years, but one day out of the blue my L'Oreal Voluminous Definition made my eyes itch. I kept using it, thinking it was a fluke, but the itching persisted, so I decided to try Almay, and this is the best mascara I've ever used.
The brush is a little different - longer on one side than on the other - and the results …Read more
I adore Lipstick Queen! Everything about the line, to me, is near perfect. The packaging is beautiful, the saint v. sinners is a nice concept, and I am loving the return to old-world, lipstick glamour.
As for Saint Wine, the color is a deep-but-sheer plummy wine; really beautiful for a fall evening. The texture is very light, and it sinks right into your lips. To me it's almost a …Read more
This is a truly great mascara. Lots of volume and length with no clumps, no flaking. If you really want a lot of volume, it takes a bit of time to build it up, but it doesn't clump even as you add on layers. The only thing that would keep me from repurchasing is the cheesy packaging (yellow and purple? seriously?). I've found that L'Oreal's new extra volume collagen mascara …Read more
My first Chanel lipstick, and to be honest, I am a little disappointed, especially at a $30 price tag. The packaging is fantastic, and the color, a warm coral-y red, is beautiful. But the texture! The lippie is a bit hard and doesn't glide easily onto lips. It takes a lot of the product to build up color, and then it fades quickly. Sorry to say it doesn't come close to my HG red …Read more
I'm honestly kind of surprised at all the negative reviews here. I adore this moisturizer. It's one of the few drugstore-priced lotions that is oil-free with an effective SPF of 30. I've been using this for several weeks now, and it hasn't made me break out at all. The shimmer particles in it are tiny (TINY!) and don't really show up on me once the product has sunk in …Read more
Finally a nude I can wear! I have naturally highly pigmented lips, so most nude glosses look like nothing on me, and most nude lipsticks wash me out. I think this one works so well because it's sheer but more highly pigmented than most glosses. It's so sexy, and lasts longer than your average lip gloss. I took a point off for the high price, but I honestly don't mind paying - …Read more
I've finally found a tinted moisturizer that works for me! The consistency of this is a little thicker/more opaque than many tinted moisturizers, but definitely more sheer than foundation.
I tried Laura Mercier oil-free tm, but it turned orange on my skin. This one (I have it in Nude Envy) is perfect! It's sheer but it evens my skintone and leaves me looking natural and …Read more
