Started out very strong with rose and lily of the valley scent. A half hour later it settled down to a powdery unoriginal musky scent which did not project...not worth it. The rose top notes were like a rose decaying and the lily of the valley only added to that affect. UGH. It was hard to continue wearing it, and on me: terrible!! If you like a rose scent I would recommend Tresor: light, and …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Primer

Understand/agree with previous posts. However, I need to add that after using under eye concealers/primers (all oil/silicone bases) that ANY mascara would just not adhere to my lower lashes. Grrrr...This product (seems to be wax-based? ) fixes that problem so mascara again sticks on--as it should. Hello lower lashes again.

I try everything having fine highlighted hair for volume, so I tried this. It's quite expensive...Did add volume and also stickiness and a greasy feel too. Not worth the money, IMHO, BUT a great product to add "tack" to the hair for any up do's if you have thin/fine hair and want to do a ponytail, bun, etc. Has great "grab, " but not so great for bobs, IMHO.

Misc Beauty Tools - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray

Used this over a chalky-too matte foundation (Revlon Colorstay full cover matte; in a tube) because I didn't like it's unnatural finish (color and coverage and non-oxidizing were pluses--BUT, the solid matte was not for me--it screamed "MAKEUP!!.") So, Elf fixed this to a slightly dewy natural look. Amazing. I haven't had problems with the spray--I just quickly blast away …Read more

Stocked up on this because it was cheap! In the garbage now. Hope it can be recycled, lol! My skin broke out for the first time in over 40 years and it did NOT blur pores and made my foundation pill up in a weird way. Three strikes and you're out! Threw away several foundations which I blamed (by mistake,) and had to retrieve them from the garbage. Sorry, Maybelline, you totally missed …Read more

Was impressed by the coverage of this, but made my skin break out..and I'm past the pimple stage by decades. Perhaps primer plus this was responsible? IDK. It's just too thick and settled into fine/old lady lines; unlike L'Oreal 24 hour and Fit Me foundations and many others which did not. Not to make a joke, LOL, but if I keep using this I'll NEED a FULL-COVERAGE …Read more

This mascara comes doubled sided: one for a "primer" (white) --applied firs, and the other for the mascara, which is supposed to cover and coat lashes. (It is supposed to provide "tubes.."...and so the hype starts.) I tried it today and it is quite terrible: clumpy and doesn't add length either..(Thank goodness I knew enough to remove it with HOT WATER!! to spare my own …Read more

Thanks to all other MUA's who pointed out that this pencil breaks and crumbles!! I thought I'd found the perfect GREEN and stocked up. Darn--my mistake. All in the garbage.

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Drama Pomade Crayon

2.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Bought this as a 'brow duo" with pomade and a "fill in" powder at the other end. Pomade/pencil worked, but the other end never did as I could not open it, even with pliers. Pomade seemed ok, but I only bought this because it seemed like one product that could combine a "pencil" for outline and a powder for completion. Rip off. I just wanted ONE product to do it all …Read more

Brows - Maybelline New York - Tattoo Studio Waterproof Brow Gel

The "only" real negative I have about this brow gel is that the brush is ridiculous: who could define their eyebrows with that?! Any brow gel with a mascara brush or puffy pad-brush is not suitable for filling in hairless spots nor defining, but many brow gels have them. I wanted a product to fill in sparse spots, and non existent places and this fits the bill IF you use a thin brush …Read more
