Hair Color - Wella - Color Charm Conditioning Permanent Gel Haircolor

5.0

Apr/15/2006

I am impressed by this hair color, mostly by the choices that are available. I have cool-toned medium brown hair that I've been coloring burgundy-brown for the past couple years. I want to gravitate back to my natural color and cover the increasing number of greys(!), so I bought a blue-based medium ash brown and 20 vol developer. I left it on my virgin roots for 25 minutes, then ran it …Read more

Conditioner - Graham Webb - Color Enhancing Conditioner in Ruby Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2004

I have this conditioner in Ruby Red. I currently have light golden brown hair with faded coppery tones. I thought I'd try this over the other colors to bring out some more true red tones in my hair. My first attempt was absolutely disastrous. This stuff really does work, and I found that the color was very unnatural on my light brown hair, and was streaky red-crayon-RED all over my head …Read more

Liquid - Calvin Klein - Light Coverage Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2003

I tried a sample of this foundation in Cream 05, which works very well for my NC25 complexion. It makes my pores disappear and has just enough coverage to even out my skintone, which is the reason I wear foundation - to tone down the pink in my cheeks. I ended up squeezing out too much from the packet, so I went ahead and kept applying a few layers, and it doesn't feel heavy at all. I do …Read more

Mascara - Mary Kay - Endless Performance Mascara

This is a relatively decent everyday mascara. It's much cheaper than my ordinary mascara (Bourjois Coup de Theatre), which is an advantage, but the formulation is completely different.

This mascara is a basic formula - I don't notice much in the way of lengthening or thickening, it just sort of enhances my lashes, making them more obvious, but I …

Blush - Maybelline New York - Cool Effects Blush

I really enjoy using this stuff! I have it in Champagne Chill, which makes for a shimmery, yet subtle (more "glowy" than "shimmery") highlighter for my cheekbones and temples, and Chillin' Chocolate, which makes a nice accompaniment as contour just under my cheekbones. I'm not intimidated by the shimmer/pearliness, and find it indeed fades relatively quickly. …Read more

I may very well have found my Holy Grail foundation...
<br>
<br>
First, the bad. This stuff doesn't smell very good. The scent fades, but it's reminiscent of stinky self-tanner. Not too pleasant, but I wonder whether it's just the sample I have? I find that when I apply it over fragranced moisturizer, I don't notice the odor so much, so maybe it …

Foundations - Avon - Face Lifting Cream Souffle Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2003

I was disappointed with this foundation. The word "souffle" and the picture of the jar in the brochure hooked me and reeled me in. I had a hard time deciding what shade would work for me, so I took advantage of their free shipping and 100% satisfaction return policy and ordered two shades. Now, I'm a big fan of creamy moisturizers - the thicker and more custard-y, the better. …Read more

Blush - La Femme - Blush On Rouge Powder Blush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2003

I agree with the other reviewers - these are the most highly pigmented blushes I have ever tried, even compared to high-end brands. Barely a swipe of the brush picks up more than enough color. The color stays put on your cheeks all day, yet is still easy to blend. I have Brandy Ice, which is a shimmery medium-deep plummy rose and is absolutely stunning. I prefer creme blushes, yet I would …Read more

Blush - Lancôme - Lancome Blush Focus

Jul/08/2003

First, I have to put the disclaimer on here that I'm a big Pommette fan. Pommettes were discontinued, sadly, in favor of the Blush Focus line. I have to say, I'm very disappointed in these, because they just don't compare to Pommettes. But, having said that, they're still decent creme blushes.

They have a stiffer texture that reminds me of a Nars Multiple, and …

Primer/ Corrector - DHC - Velvet Skin Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/27/2003

I'd been looking for a good foundation primer, hoping it would a) help my makeup go on more evenly, and b) help my makeup stay on longer. The DHC Velvet Skin Coat does both! I received a sample packet in a swap, and I have to say I was hooked on the first application. It truly feels like velvet, and helps fill in pores and fine lines, creating a wonderfully even surface for foundation. …Read more
