BEWARE: this fragrance has been reformulated. i was faithful to their entire Ginger line for over 3 years. recently ordered this off their .com as a replenishment. i was suspicious because the roller ball version had some reviews warning others about this being reformulated n horrible but the full bottle version didn't have any such reviews ( i also noticed no new reviews were posted after …Read more

for me (fair-light asian skin tone), this is the most AMAZING undereye concealer..#2 is peach based, looks odd in the pot but the darker, coral peach counteracts any darkness upon contact..it's literally magic..i don't blend the 2 colors, that's pointless...try using the coral-peach shade under eye and the white-peach shade on your top lid to see an eye lifting effect..the …Read more

i'll let you in on my little secret...this is the best deodorant...no joke! the zinc oxide in this product combats body odor...all natural ingredients, which i dig...3 years ago i had a severe case of allergic reaction to a "natural" deodorant, so since i figured out how well zinc oxide neutralizes odor, i've been on a hunt for the most desirable zinc oxide based product. If …Read more

what an amazing eyeliner!!! MAC has never really impressed me much...but i couldn't resist when i heard about this...liquidlast is completely waterproof AND smudgeproof (don't ya just hate the smudgies you get w/ "waterproof" mascaras?? they don't budge once they manage to smudge--such horrid irony!)...if you are an eye-lining kind of girl, this is an absolute summer …Read more

i am in love w/ this mascara because of the brush!!...i am able to get the thickest lashes w/out any clumps...i usually use only the comb side, i comb my lashes w/ it in a back and forth fashion and it really deposits the mascara in an extremely thick but even way...i'll let it dry between each application, so it thickens w/ every application...this has to be the nicest mascara wand …Read more

This is quite the departure from my usual need for maximum volume mascaras. For the past 6 months, I’ve switched to using mineral eye makeup (to minimize eye irritation) and the only thing I couldn’t find was an all-natural mascara that’s affordable enough to toss out every 3 months. I finally caved and bought this, and no regrets here! It has an ultra-smooth and creamy consistency that yields …Read more

I just got this yesterday at a discounted price. I’m so excited to review this! It’s a primer w/ color correcting pigments, comes in 4 varieties: brightening/pink-gold shimmer w/ spf 25, mauve w/ spf 2d, green w/ spf25, and a clear base spf 25(I think :/)...it’s been quite a while since I’ve used any sort of base since I quit face makeup (foundation/powder) 3 years ago. Recently, I’ve been …Read more

Jun/02/2004

I was hoping for a shadow pencil that blends easily and sets for all day wear, as the reviews have suggested. The color doesn’t apply evenly, especially when you’re layering. And while it isn’t waterproof and does transfer a bit by the end of the day, it is very hard to smudge the shadow when it’s initially applied. I want to avoid rubbing my eyelids and this product does not allow me to do …Read more

Not as impressive as lancome CD-but who cares? I got this for a dollar! It does beat most powder shadows out there. No creasing (amazing!), fading, and it is decently pigmented. I would have given this a 5 if I hadn’t discovered color dose but I find that the glitters, although fine and few in between, does fall onto lower eyelids by mid-day (unlike color dose, this formula is too watery to …Read more

Due to a quest to convert myself to a cream shadow user, I set out to look for copycats of lancome CD and mac paints (don’t use because I’ve heard it’s bad news for sensitive eyes). This one is great! Has the same ingredients as mac paints (slightly different order), applies and stays on like lancome color dose (although I have a feeling color dose is slightly more enduring). I avoid brown …Read more
