The only drugstore mascara I like. This non-waterproof mascara actually doesn't flake or smudge. It's a natural-look mascara, so no dramatic effect, but decently lengthening, appropriate for day. The only drugstore mascara that doesn't clump for me. For night, I apply this first and then top it with a more dramatic one (I use Vincent Longo) to thicken it up.

This fantastic shampoo completely banished my dandruff in a single use. I use it every other washing and I no longer worry about scalp flakes at all. The selenium sulfide formula seems much more effective than the standard treatments with zinc; Aveda's Scalp Remedy did nothing for me, but this stuff works great. It smells like Pantene Pro-V to me, not stinky but not great. A bit drying and …Read more

BerryDelicious has the scent description right. An immediate effervescent burst of tart sweet fruity smell, almost fizzy, drying down to a powdery vanilla citrus. I loved this as a scent strip, hated my first spritz, but since purchasing it have ultimately decided that I quite like it.

A lovely, very natural champagne highlighting or wash shade. This is fantastic quality shadow, very blendable and lasting. The shimmer is subtle and perfect. I couldn't ask for more.

I swapped for this, forgot about it for months, dug it out, and instant love resulted. Perfect fall color, not too dark but very pigmented in a tasteful way. I would call this a medium rose, slightly browned.

Berry Nude shows up on me as a medium true pink, not quite my preferred blush color, but it looks so lovely that it's worth it to me. Much more pigmented than the other NN blushes, this one should only take a dab if you're light or fair. Creamy yet lightweight. Can cause breakouts, though.

This stuff is amazing. I'd been holding off on it because I wasn't sure about the color selection, but I sprang for it, and it's phenomenal. The shade 02 Buff corresponds to MAC NC20ish (don't you hate it when people write reviews and say "the color Buff is perfect for me" without telling you their coloring for reference?). Anyway, this stuff sinks right in and looks …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - Extra Super Lash Mascara

Blargh. Seems like I hate the mascaras most people love, and love the ones they hate. All I know is, this stuff gives me ugly, stuck-together spider lashes -- as in, I didn't understand the meaning of the term "spider lashes" until I tried this. My eyelashes look like sticks in a totally weird way. I don't know what I was expecting for $2, but this is going in the trash.

After a disappointing experience with Healthy Defense (zits, bad color), I almost didn't try Healthy Skin, which looks almost identical in packaging. The ingredients are different, though, so I figured it was worth a shot. Wow. This stuff is fantastic. It zaps shine in an instant and keeps it away for hours and hours, with no shine breakthrough like I've experienced with every single …Read more

Lip Treatments - Almay - Pure Tints in Mauve

Aug/11/2004

I think it's extremely odd how different this color seems to appear on people. For me, Mauve is actually a bright blued fuschia, and it definitely looks like a lipstick. I don't quite know what to do with this color, as it's way too 80s to wear most of the time. It looks nice with a green shirt if I do natural, neutral cheeks and eyes, but that's about it. I still like the …Read more
