Misc Beauty Tools - shu uemura - Eyelash Curler

1.0
Created with Sketch.

6 hours ago

This used to be my Holy Grail of eyelash curlers, but I think they changed the pads from a fat rounded pad to a straight edged silicone, and it does NOT work as well, if at all. It is now comparable to Shisedo's eyelash curler and IT doesn't work either. I'm not one with straight Asian eyelashes (I'm not even Asian, but I understand the issue, ) and I never used to have a …Read more

Shampoo - Suave - Daily Clarifying Shampoo

4.0

2 days ago

I have settled on this shampoo after buying MANY others $$$ with promises, etc. Alll I want is a shampoo to NOT strip my hair, clean and rinse out easily and remove other hair products: mousses, sprays, etc. This shampoo WORKS for me, and it is very inexpensive. I know because it is so cheap you may not consider this, but it is worth it, SO worth it. It cleanses my hair of build-up/products …Read more

Eye Primer - wet n wild - PhotoFocus Eyeshadow Primer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 days ago

I think I was impressed by the "photofocus" description, but not impressed with the product as 1/ I couldn't apply my pencil eyeliner on top of it at all, and 2/ my eyeshadow patched up was was uneven. (Perhaps the solution was a perfectly even application of the primer? No can do...lol.) Moving on to Cover Girl and Maybelline, ,Elf,and NYX as I don't want to pay $$$ for …Read more

Styling Products - Rusk - Mousse Maximum Volume and Control

I really thought this was "the" product for my fine highlighted hair, so I stocked up on it...oops. I now think after a day or so it made my hair oily and "glumpy"...not what I want as I don't want to wash my hair too much. ...I just like products that leave my hair clean..This doesn't do that.

Edit: just checked ingredients and discovered WHY the oily …

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne

2.0
Created with Sketch.

28 days ago

I love all Jo Malone scents, they are very nice, but they are very expensive and do NOT last at all on the skin nor do they have "silage" (projection) which makes them very short lasting and invisible as a scent, (which is not what I pay for in a perfume nor expect.) I have received free samples from Sephora and enjoyed them, but will not purchase myself. Also, I wonder about the …Read more

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Mascara

28 days ago

I bit the bullet buying this $30 mascara after reading good reviews in other places. Ouch. It is really not worth the money compared to other drugstore mascaras. Yes, it DID give a "feathery" look and did not clump and was dependable, but I'm so picky that it wasn't enough for the price. Somehow, I am still hoping and wishing that one mascara will do it all. Until then …Read more

Fragrances - Coty - Jovan Musk for Women

2.0

I found the "vintage" orange topped bottle on Ebay thinking I would receive original scent which had great reviews, but while what I got is lovely enough, it disappears almost immediately after spraying on--no silage, no nothing. (And, paid more for it too. ) One positive: there is NO WAY you can overspray this! Thx for all previous posts!

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade - Taupe

4.0

2 months ago

First ordered the Ash Brown dip and liked it, but it was too dark. I am blond/grey with light ash eyebrows and do NOT like a harsh look. The taupe seems to blend and be "invisible" and natural looking. I use a skinny brush to apply to mimic the missing hairs and outline and then blend with a spoolie. Lasts all day; thank goodness! Edit: should this shade be too dark for my brows I …Read more

Fragrances - Marc Jacobs - Decadence Eau de Parfum

2 months ago

(I only tried a sample, so I can't comment on packaging, and packaging doesn't matter to me because I won't pay more for a bottle that looks lovely on the counter when the contents are disappointing! )

Anyway, this reminds me exactly of the cheap 'pheromone perfumes" from decades ago; pure musk/animal in a one-note scent which never changes, yet clings, whether …

Shampoo - Clairol - Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo - Blonde & Silver

3.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I would NOT use this again on my own hair (which was improperly colored to orangey, and then NOT fixed by a good colorist--not fixable by Shimmer Lights at all, either--that bad,) but it is the BOMB to use on brassy (clip on) natural hair extensions which are too bright and then followed by a good conditioner. I would much rather use and experiment on purple shampoos and toners on extensions than …Read more
