Awesome! I've got very oily skin and I live on the Gulf Coast where it is humid all the time. I wear Euro high PPD sunscreen that leaves me looking shiny & greasy. I've tried a LOT of primers/powders to get matte (milk of magnesia, several -cone primers, Nylon 12 primers, Cliniac OC, rice powders, silk powders, pearl powders, silica powders, etc. I really could go on and on). …Read more

Lips - RIMMEL - Lip Bloomer Stain/Plumper

The stain doesn't stain, the plumper doesn't plump. That being said, I don't expect much from lip plumpers, and this one meets those expectations. Has the tingle, but is just a heavy, sticky gloss. I love lip stains, and I don't know why, but I'm compelled to cheat on Vincent Longo from time to time in the hope of finding a cheaper and more readily available stain. …Read more

The texture is remarkably similar to Elmer's Glue. I feel like it takes a lot of effort to rub this in and then it feels heavy on my skin. I'm acne prone and it has never broken me out, but the texture is just yuck. For the cost, it should be better.

Awesome lipbalm, one of the few that I've finished a tube on. The tube is larger than your average lipbalm, but I really didn't find it to be a problem. Long lasting and really seems to heal chappy flaky lips. I can't wait to try the tinted version!
Edited: Got a couple of tubes of this that were grainy and unpleasant. I won't be purchasing these again since the …

Lip Treatments - Neutrogena - Moistureshine Tinted Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]

Got this in several colors & my mom saw mine then went and got several colors for herself. We both love them. They have a sunscreen, are very moisturizing, have a pleasant smell & nice shade range. On the downside, they don't have the staying power of some other lipbalms, but I think it is a fair tradeoff for the color, and they can be on the pricey side. But I'm a sucker …Read more

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Styling Gel [DISCONTINUED]

Nice gel with just a little color to give brows some definition. This coats all those little blonde brow hairs I have so that I don't have to use a pencil with it when I'm feeling lazy. I have used several tubes of this, and when I have a haircolor that doesn't match their color selection, I use the clear gel with a pencil. Great stuff & cheap too!

Eye Makeup Remover - Pond's - bare and repair conditioning eye makeup remover with grapeseed extract and vitamin e [DISCONTINUED]

Bought this on the basis of reviews here and I'm disappointed. My everyday eye makeup usually consists of Bobbi Brown gel liner, mascara & maybe some shadow. This does not take off the liner. Maybe that's just a testament to the staying power of BB liner, but I was hoping that I wouldn't have to abuse my lash line to remove it, but even when I use this remover with a cotton …Read more
