Concealers - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish 25hr Breathable Concealer

4.0

Jul/06/2018

I bought this on a whim at a Dollar General, planning to use it strictly as an under eye concealer. Overall, it was OK but the packaging was annoying.

Pros: I like the formula; it blends nicely, it's creamy and lasts all day.

Cons: The packaging is weird -- a soft plastic tube with a soft, round tip. It's very awkward to get the product out of the tube. I usually …

I love this concealer. I keep re-buying it! It's creamy, blends easily and not drying. My only complaint is -- once I get towards the bottom of the tube, the formula starts to break me out a little bit, nothing major but noticeable by myself.

Lip Gloss - RIMMEL - Oh My Gloss! Oil Tint

Bought this on a whim in baby pink and orange. I really like this oil lip tint -- one swipe leaves my lips shiny (no stickiness) with a beautiful light pink tint. The formula is not drying, which I commonly find with other oil tints. The packaging is cute; a twisted tube. The applicator is long and soft. I'll buy this again!

I ran out of my Physician's Formula compact makeup and thought I'd try this.

Pros: convenient packaging, average pricing, lots of shade choices.

Cons: transfers onto everything. very drying, collects in creases, not long-wearing, not enough product.

I wouldn't repurchase this.

I bought this on Amazon as a gift set with the matching facial lotion. I have very fair, sensitive skin. My chin is very red and dry. Sometimes my skin breaks out in little hives, which eventually turn into raised red marks lasting a few days :( I drag the dropper across my cheeks (equivalent to about 3 drops/cheek) and rub/pat in the oil. I have not had a single spot since I began using this a …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - bareMinerals - COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

I bought this online because I have fair, dry skin with redness on my chin. I tried this for 2 days and by the end of the 8 hour work day my face was red and shiny. This product has a lot of sunscreen in it which irritated my eyes and made them visibly red and watery all day. I developed 1-2 small, itchy bumps on my face as well. I returned this on the third day.

Mascara - RIMMEL - Wonder'Lash Waterproof Mascara with Argan Oil

Bottom line: I returned it the next day.

I was looking for a waterproof mascara that could hold a curl and maybe not be so harsh on my eyes. The "argan oil" aspect drew me in but the product does not hold a curl at all. On the plus side, the packaging is cute and the product is not clumpy.

Unfortunately, I returned it to Ulta and was recommended to buy Waterproof …

Cleansers - Boots - No 7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser

I got this at Ulta on the clearance rack for about $7. It's too expensive in real life, otherwise I wouldn't try it. Anyway, I used the cloth once and realized that the product works great on its own as a cleanser. The pump is designed by a mastermind and ensures you use every drop. I've had it for over a year now and there's still a lot of product left.

Scrubs - St. Ives - Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub

I wanted this to exfoliate my combo skin and prevent some zits here and there. Even when I use a dab, the product leaves behind the exfoliating powder (especially on the sides of my face, eyebrows, around nose). Applying make up or brow pencil after using this is not a bright idea.

I tried this a few years ago and didn't like it. The idea of it made me want to try it again. Unfortunately, the ingredients are the same and the chapstick dried out my lips AGAIN. It's pretty expensive, smells good, tastes good, has a nice tint to it, but i'm literally throwing it out as I type this.
