Lips - bareMinerals - Wearable Coral

Wearable Coral kit includes a liner, gloss and lipstick. I really like this kit as coral has always done well one me in general. According to the kit, you can mix and match to create a number of looks, which I have found to be true in experimenting. However, I will say that none of the combo's I have discovered so far is a "soft" coral. This kit is very bright, not tacky, but not …Read more

Hair Treatments - Burt's Bees - Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment

Ahhh. . .Burt's Bee's Avacado Hair Treatment. I have had mixed results. The first time I used it I followed the directions perfectly (shampooing AFTER treatment) and it took about 10 days of washings to get the product out of my hair. Swore I would never use it again.
A year or so later a friend raved about it so I got brave and tried it again.
This time I LOVE it! I use …

Really love this stuff. Adds volume and texture to hair after blow out, is also great to use for curls. Sometimes I sleep in rag rollers .. .when I use this first the curls come out soft and last all day. One jar will last forever, I use it nearly every day and have had the same jar for almost a year. I will definitely repurchase when it runs out.

Lip Treatments - Neutrogena - Lip Nutrition Berry Smooth Balm

Overall I really like this because my lips chap easily. This product exfoliates the dry chapped skin and softens my lips nicely. My lips can be a complete mess in the morning and after applying a couple of times throughout the day, by night they are completely healed.
Cons are packaging, balm is gooey and has jojoba beads so getting it out of the jar can be a real mess. Hasn't stopped …

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer

Received a sample of this and when I first began to apply it I thought it was great, as it does fill fine lines and imperfections quite nicely. However after I applied my foundation, every time I touched my face the foundation kind of flaked off, looked almost like peeling skin from a sunburn. I may try it again, but I am glad I didn't buy this.

I received a sample of this today at the spa I go to. I am glad I didn't have to buy this. There are no positive or negative visual effects but my face itches like crazy! I will not be using the remaining sample tubes.

Jul/11/2006

I purchased this conditioner on the recommendation from a friend who claimed it to be HG quality. Before trying this conditioner I could easily get two days out of a shampoo if pressed for time in the morning. Not when using this conditioner. My normally dry hair looks greasy by the end of day one (even when only applying conditioner from nape down) and there is something about using this …Read more

Blush - CHANTECAILLE - Aquablush in Brilliance

5.0

Jul/11/2006

Cool creamy easy to apply aquablush that gives the appearance of a sun kissed look especially when used to enhance Chantecaille Blush in Delight. Somewhat disappointed with the packaging on this particular tube. . . this is not my first Aquablush but it is the first one I have had packaging problems with. The inner seal of the top portion has come unglued from the exterior. . . so the caps tend …Read more

Masks - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Aspirin Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2006

The original aspirin mask recommendation is too harsh for my dry skin, however I give the IDEA itself a 3 cause it saved a very expensive mosturizing cleanser that I had previously been unable to use. Every time I used my Chanel cleanser my face broke out, however crushing up an aspirin or two and mixing them with the cleanser has made my skin incredibly soft while still feeling clean.
Once …
