Sep/26/2006

This was one of my recommendations from the questionare on the Mario Badescu web site. I was really worried that it would break me out because it has Cottonseed Oil in it, and everything else I've ever tried with oil in it breaks me out. I was amazed when I got this home, my skin loved it! No breakouts (at least not from this)! I use Everyday Minerals foundation, and this is a perfect base …Read more

I really like this cleanser. I have combination skin with extremely dry cheeks, and acne on my chin nose and forehead that I have an rx for. Because of this, I have a hard time finding cleansers that don't irritate one area of my skin. This cleanser takes off all my makeup without making my skin feel dry. It doesn't irritate my skin at all. This isn't my HG, but very close. I will …Read more

I love this product! I have it in the Buff shade. I'm not the type of person to go somewhere to get manicures, I just take care of my nails at home. If I don't keep polish on my nails, they peel, crack, and break, and pretty much never get long. I like my nails to look natural, so I've only used clear nail polish in the past. Before I used this, I used OPI's Nail Envy. I will …Read more

Sep/26/2006

This is one of the very few products I've purchased more than once. The pros: natural looking, no smudging, no flaking, no clumps, and washes off clean with only water. The cons: comes in a tiny tube that doesn't last long, less that one third of the size of other drugstore mascaras, and only comes in black (I prefer dark brown because they look more natural on me). I highly recommend …Read more

When I first bought this, I loved it. I was looking for a medium to full coverage liquid foundation that would work with my combination skin, but still give me a natural looking, dewey finish. This was exactly that. Before this, I had been using Bare Escentuals, but it made me itch so I thought mineral makeup just wouldn't work for me and I went to liquid. After using this for about a week …Read more

Luckily I didn't buy this, I got it in a swap. I thought this color would be great on me, but it didn't even show up on my PPP skin. In the container it looks really shimmery, but the shimmer didn't show up on me either. The smell is awful, too. It has that fake, grape candy scent that I think smells just like cough syrup. All around bad product. Don't waste your money!

I was really excited to try this. I thought it would be great to get a concealer and foundation together, but this just didn't work for me. I have very fair, combination skin with pink undertones. I bought this in the lightest shade. I typically wear Clinique Superbalanced Liquid in Alabaster in the winter or Light in the summer. I've recently been on a quest for new foundation …Read more

I purchased the travel size of this just because I don't use hair spray that often. I like that this is an aeresol (don't know if I spelled that right) spray, so you can use it continuously. I holds well and isn't sticky, but it has that typical hair spray smell that I hate. I'll use this one up, but I won't repurchase it.

I really like this palette. It includes a really cool toned, light plummy-pink blush; a shimmer gold highlighter; three eyeshadows: a medium purple with gold shimmer and glitter, a bright, cool toned pink with gold glitter, and a slightly shimmery peach; and three lip glosses: a red with gold shimmer, purple with gold glitter, and a shimmery gold. It also comes with a small blush brush(like the …Read more

I was hoping this would be a less red alternative to the Beauty Queen shade, but it didn't really show up that well. I showed up just a little on my cheeks and not at all on my lips. I'm PPP, and I can't imagine this would show up on anyone with darker skin.
