Alright, y'all ready for this novel that I'm about to deliver to you?

I have always had oily/combination skin since I was an adolescent. I get dry patches in the winter on occasion, and sometimes as a result of using overly-drying products (such as those containing benzoyl peroxide, prescription topicals, etc.). Despite this, I had pretty clear skin up until about 3 years …

They're not supposed to be used twice a day. It even says that on the individual packets...this could be the cause of sensitivity for some users of the 3D Pro White Strips.

I've been using them for about two weeks now and I'm enamored. I like them a lot. The difference isn't outstanding compared to some other whiteners that I've used, but the ease of use is …

This skin brush is unparalleled. I seriously don't think any of the knockoffs, nor the manually used plastic sticks with brushes on the end will come close to it.

It didn't break me out when I first started using it, but it did show a dramatic difference in my skin by the second day I had used it. There is nothing like this product. It has so many benefits and it is so …

Aug/18/2010

I got this as a GWP with one of my Estee Lauder packages, and I don't really care for it. It lengthens my eyelashes pretty well, but it leaves them with a "natural" look. Needless to say, I don't really care for that type of look...I prefer more of a spider-lash appearance. This does smear, but then again it isn't a waterproof formula to begin with, so I can't …Read more

I love this paint pot. I got it because I have used the MAC paints for five years, but they either tear at the edges or release too much product without warning (I cannot tell you how many times I've had paint ooze from the tube at its own leisure, leaving me with wasted product). I'll still use my beloved paints, but I suppose I'll have to use them gingerly.

Aug/18/2010

This is my staple moisturizer. I absolutely love the scent, the packaging is sleek and allows for hygienic dispensing, and the formula doesn't break me out. My esthetician recommended it for me and it's been my favorite for about a year now. The price is worth it because you can't possibly use it up that fast unless you're dispensing more than you need. It doesn't …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Veluxe Pearl - Silver Ring

Aug/14/2010

I got this because I want to have a nice selection of neutrals for smoky eye looks and I thought it was really pretty, plus I love the Veluxe Pearl formula that MAC's eyeshadows have. I also have to admit I bought it because the name is "Silver Ring" and that I absolutely love silver rings. Well, I'm really happy with it. Whenever I wear this, people comment that my eyes look …Read more

Aug/14/2010

I think I bought this in mid/late 2008, expecting something somewhat worthy of the pricetag? However, I'm confirming what the others before me have said, it is nearly comparable to the dollar-store palettes that you'd find for tweens - not that there's anything wrong with them, but that's not what this palette was marketed as. I believe there were no reviews for it when it was …Read more

Lip Gloss - The Body Shop - born lippy - strawberry

Aug/11/2010

I was 12 years old when a friend showed me this lip gloss in my 7th grade history class. It smells just as amazing to me now as it did 8 years ago. Its scent is almost identical to fresh strawberries - if not, it's refreshingly similar to them. The color is barely there red with a hint of pink, but it's so sheer you won't really notice. It has a gel-like consistency and it lasts …Read more

Eyeliner - Physicians Formula - Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye Marker

Aug/11/2010

I purchased this because it was on sale, and it did work pretty well for the first couple of days that I used it. It's a pretty deep shade of black, the tip is felt and therefore it makes application easy, and the staying power was decent. However, after only a week or two, I noticed it becoming increasingly hard to drag along my lashline. Undoubtedly, I'd end up with dotted lines and …Read more
