Lips - Jordana Cosmetics - Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain

Jun/04/2017

I bought this product at Walgreens after staring at the Jordana display for awhile. I thought it wouldn't be a big money loss if I ended up not liking it (cost less than $5). It turns out I have not left the house without this gem!!!! This is by far the best balm stain I have used in the last 5 years. It is very moisturizing on my lips, and the stain it leaves behind is beautiful, even my …Read more

I work 12 hour shifts so I need foundations that last. I have used 6 bottles of this foundation, no joke. One bottle last about 8 to 9 months, sometimes 12 months depending on whether or not I am trying out other foundation formulas. I love the creamy consistency, the semi-matte finish, and the coverage, which is medium coverage but could easily be built up to full coverage. My shade is NC25 …Read more

I needed to find a waterproof mascara to take to the beach on vacation. I asked the MU board for recommendations and someone suggested this mascara. I bought it and a waterproof Clinique one as well. I tested both of them but this one beats the Clinique mascara by far. I returned the Clinique mascara and kept this one. I also compared it to other drugstore mascaras I have but this one came out on …Read more

I loved everything about this bronzer, from the natural looking glow to the delicious smell of coconut and sun blended together. After using it for several days I developed a rash on the exact same areas I apply my bronzer. The rash looks bumpy, feels warm, and itches. It saddens me that a product I loved so much caused such a bad reaction. I honestly wanted to cry! But ladiez, if you try this …Read more

I saw on dupethat.com that Sultry Sienna was a dupe to MAC's "Modesty" which I love, so I went to Walgreen's and bought it.
It doesn't look like "Modesty" on my lips. It is not a bad color but oh my...the smell of this lipstick turned me off the instant I put it on my lips. I would not recommend this line of lipsticks if you are turned off by strong scents …

Jul/21/2015

I have mature, combination skin and my most favorite foundation of all for many years has been Estee Lauder Double Wear (in Desert Beige). I like to use drugstore foundation on a daily basis and save my Estee Lauder for more special occasions. I bought the Infallible foundation because I read that most of the shades are yellow based, and that is what I need/use. As it turns out this L'Oreal …Read more

I bought mine at Walgreens with a coupon. The shade I got was in "Timeless Chick", which was gorgeous at first. The product applied well and my lips didn't feel dry at all. second time I tried it use it the whole lipstick came out of the crayon. I put it back in but it didn't work, the thing kept falling out! Not worth the hassle! besides they give you only about an inch of …Read more

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter - Opal

Feb/09/2015

At my age (46) I have to be very careful with highlighters because most of them tend to make my pores look larger than they really are, thus defeating my purpose to wear makeup in first place. I have given several highlighters, including one from Hourglass, a good shot with no luck until I tried this one.
What set it apart from the rest is that this is a very fine milled powder that …

May/20/2014

I tried to make this primer work but it didn't. Every time I applied it, it balled up badly. I tried tapping it on my skin; seemed to work for a minute, then it balled up when I applied my foundation! Once I realized I was going thru a lot of trouble just to apply the stuff without making it ball up into a mess I discarded it for good. I'm too busy, no time for that!
I like the …

Every single penny spent on this product is worth it :) I had been flirting with it for awhile and only last week decided to buy it. Price wise it is super cheap and I'll tell you why. It costs $18 for the jar but you need so very little of it to get the job done that the jar will last a very long time. I imagine my jar will last at least 12 months if not more.
The Dark Brown shade is …
