Shave Products - Unlisted Brand - Bolt Superskin Shaving Gel

5.0

Jul/25/2016

This gives an extremely close shave. I mean extremely close. I'm not sure how it works, because it's the same razor I was using from before, which gave only ok results, and with this gel, I didn't have to shave again for 3 days. It is not cheap, but one pump does both calves, so it seems like this bottle will go a very long way. I also liked how my skin felt soft and fresh …Read more

Lips - Kiss My Face - Sheer Organic Shimmer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/10/2016

I purchased in Garnet. the first time I used it, I was shocked, because the binder is SO hard, like a waxy crayon (and smells like crayons too). It was too hard and waxy to drag across my lips. it also left dark residue under my bottom lip like a crazy lady the first time I tried to wear it this way. However, this is a problem that is easily fixed. Just apply lip balm first, then this product …Read more

Lipstick - Jane Iredale - Sarah

Finding a sheer, "you but better" lip color has always been a huge challenge for me. My natural pigment is dark pink enough that it messes with most lip color and glosses, but not dark enough that it looks good or has enough contrast with my olive skin by itself. The combination of my lip color with product usually isn't good. Clinique black honey is one of the few sheer colors …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Freeman Beauty - Vita-K Professional for Crow's Feet

Dec/31/2014

This is funny stuff... when you put it on, it seems like it isn't doing anything- if anything, because of the stiffish texture it dries to, it seems like it's making crows feet worse. But I noticed the next morning my crows feet lines were noticeably less deep when I smiled. The rest of my face is very smooth and unlined for my age, the only stubborn area I really have is pretty …Read more

Polishes - NYC New York Color - In a New York Color Minute - Fashion Safari

4.0

Sep/06/2014

At this point in time, nail polish does not seem like a product that should cost a lot. It seems like modern technology pretty much has the formulas for paint, varnish and lacquer down, so as long as the color is chosen well, it should be possible for companies to produce a polish that is inexpensive. Which is why I'm always on the quest for a great cheap nail polish. NYC Fashion Safari is a …Read more

Polishes - Nails Inc. - Gel Effect Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2014

I found this to be a better than average top coat in terms of wear and the plumping look it gives, but to say it gives the equivalent of a gel manicure is going too far. To be fair, I used it for multiple manis for a few weeks, to make sure I had the hang of it. In all cases, I used it over cheap base coats because that was the reason I invested in it- to give better wear and a gel look over …Read more

Moisturizers - Simple - Nourishing 24 HR Day/Night Cream

Jul/23/2014

I am surprised there aren't more reviews of this stuff. It is the bomb. I ended up buying it when they were out of the rich replenishing cream, and like it even better. After applying before bed when I get up in the morning my skin is glowing. I also don't understand all the dollar signs in the price-- it's not expensive.

Jun/23/2014

This is the first eye treatment I've tried that really made a noticeable difference in getting rid of crows feet. (although to be fair, i haven't tried any really expensive ones). It is super moisturizing and soothing. I noticed my crows feet smoothing out within the first day of use. I picked it up at Marshalls for $7.99 and now have to find it again, because its made in New Zealand. I …Read more

Mascara - Lumene - Blueberry curl mascara

4.0

Jun/07/2014

I'm really glad too I listened to the reviews and bought this mascara! For the price point it's good quality. The main things are that it holds a curl well (my lashes stick straight out) and it doesn't do anything to make lashes break/keep them from growing. I'm not sure if it encourages growth but mine seem to be thriving with daily use - at least it's not hurting them …Read more
