Hair Color - Unlisted Brand - COLOR WOW ROOT COVER UP

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/11/2017

This worked really well as eyebrow color. I only needed a tiny little brush to fill in gaps and add definition, so it would have lasted forever for that purpose. I only needed to apply once a day. Lasting power was amazing compared to waxy pens. However, my husband dropped it on the floor and it shattered. Back to using eyebrow mousse and Gimme Brow, but will def repurchase when I get near an …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Cien Nail Polish (All)

Feb/01/2017

I hardly use use nail polish anymore, but sometimes my supersoft nails drive me crazy. Of course, this product does not make them harder, but it is an OK product for the price. I got 40 Light Toffee, and it is the perfect nude for me. The consistency is pretty thin and there is strong scent that lingers much longer afterwards than I find comfortable. Brush was ok.

Cleansers - VICHY - Purete Thermale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil

Feb/01/2017

I have oily and sensitive skin so I tend to stay away from any oil or fragrance products for face, except lip oils. There was a favorable review in a magazine, so I decided to purchase this micellar oil even though a bit more expensive than I thought. It was €19 for 125 ml bottle. Normal price for a Vichy product I guess.
First, the plusses: The bottle is very pretty light blue, the product …

Eyeliner - Lumene - Blueberry Intense Liner Waterproof

Dec/11/2016

I'm always looking for a rare liquid khaki eyeliner with no or little sparkles. This liner in Khaki Crystal fits the bill quite nicely. Most brands have intense black, navy and dark brown liquid liners that are fine for brunettes and night time use. However, I need to use liquid liner during daytime to add definition to my light gray eyes. And add a little sparkle too. Pencil liner will not …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Schwarzkopf - got2b Rockin' It Encore Fresh Dry Shampoo

Dec/24/2015

This is my current favourite drugstore brand. It has a pleasant scent, right dry consistency (why are some "dry" shampoos wet???) brushes easily out, and does what product like this is supposed to do, conceal the greasies at the hairline on day 2 or 3. I buy it when it is on sale and have a coupon, for only about $3. Package design could be a little classier. I have never had problem …Read more

Shave Products - Trader Joe's - Moisturizing Cream Shave - Honey Mango

Dec/24/2015

I have been using this for years and have not ever had a reaction even though I have many allergies. It is just the right consistency, not too thin or not too thick. If i remember correctly the packaging was a little different before, and not so slippery. If they could go back to the old-style matte label/plastic, it would be perfection. As everybody else has noted, the scent is heavenly. Best …Read more

I went through the entire Heathrow T5 dutyfree perfume shop looking for something new and different, nose first and a toddler in tow (some innocent tester bottles were distroyed in process). Having already tried Pondichery and Portofino (and Hermes En Meditarranee, Sur le Nil, etc) and found them not my cup of tea, I almost overlooked this one. The spicyness somehow reminds me of Omnia but I …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Sula - Paint & Peel

Jun/15/2011

Got it dirt cheap at Ulta clearance so at least I didn't spend a fortune an a polish that literally lasts like an hour on my flimsy nails. Maybe the only time I could see using this if I was on my way to a job interview in public transportation and suddenly decided I must have polished nails (I got it in a totally work appropriate pale nude) . It smells like Elmers glue so other people would …Read more

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Pure & Free Liquid Daily Sunblock, SPF 50

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/15/2011

It is the best Neutrogena facial sunscreen I've tried to date. Most others I've tried have been chemical (except for the baby one), and made my skin sting/itch. It is not as mattifying or powdery as my previous fave, DHC White but otherwise works quite well for half the price. Leaves a very slight white cast, which is slightly annoying on those days I don't want to wear …Read more

Toners - Garden Botanika - Balancing Facial Tonic

4.0

May/26/2011

Perhaps the best toner I've ever used. No alcohol+no irritation. Smells pretty decent too. Leaves no greasy residue. Plastic bottle is break-resistant, which is a very good thing in my opinion for bathroom use. Why do some brands use glass bottles? The flip-top opening could be a little smaller.
