I have been using this product for 3 weeks every other night. I started out using it once every 3 nights just in case to avoid any irritation but since it has been next to nothing I bumped up to every other night. The only irritation I got was very slight flaking the first week I used it.
Now, onto the results. I'm 27 years old and have some fine lines around my eyes and …

Liquid - REVLON - Revlon Colorstay - Time Release Formula with pump

I bought this foundation in the formula normal/dry skin.
It definitely has a matte finish and medium to full coverage, however it isn't heavy feeling, cakey, and it doesn't feel like its sucking the moisture out of your skin. On me it does not exasberate dry spots, or break me out, my skin has felt quite lovely lately actually. I'm not too fond of the matte finish especially …

This is an excellent dupe for benefit's b right moisture cream, except not as heavy and it doesn't feel like it just sits on your skin but has a similar velvety texture that absorbs well, feels luxurious and protects my dry/sensitive skin. Also minimal fragrance. The price may seem high for a drugstore product but cvs has all kinds of coupons all the time that include this line of …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Wild Madagascar Vanilla 24hr Hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream

At first, this smells like what I like to call Victoria's Secret hooker. That cheapy, sweet and fruity almost young teen smell. However after a while, it leaves a beautiful lingering scent of vanilla that always gets me a ton of compliments! The texture is good, but after a few hours my legs did feel a little dry. I would buy this again at the semi annual $3 price.

I wish I could use this... It works extremely well and actually leaves your hair shiny and full of volume and thick feeling without being waxy and sticky or making your hair feel dirty the next day. One thing about this product I can't stand is the smell, I am somewhat sensitive and this smells exactly like its a 10 leave in and I can't stand that smell either! Argh why goldwell?? …Read more

This stuff is the bomb!!!!

I have extremely thin and limp lashes ( like the rest of my hair) and they like to stick together and look like I have maybe 3 lashes per eye with most mascara. Luckily they are long, but they do not hold a curl nor separate very well.
I've come to terms that my ideal mascara had to have a somewhat small plastic wand. I also use shiseido mascara …

This is the only shampoo that does not make my hair shed like a cat in the shower. I dont know what it is about it that does that, but i really notice a huge difference when i clean my drain after the shower after this shampoo and other shampoos. Ive tried other argan oil shampoos and they were a no no. Either didnt make my hair feel clean or made my hair shed like crazy.
The one-and-only …

Loove it! Much more pigmented than Posie Tint. Posie tint is too sheer on my NC40 skintone and when I build it it takes off my foundation resulting in very splotchy cheeks. This has much more color and a little goes a long way. The first time i used it I actually overapplied and had to tone it down with powder. I like applying liquid stains like these to a stippling brush like the mac 188, and …Read more

Love the texture, but not this particular scent. It reminds me alot of the cheap lotions i used to have back in junior high, lol. After it sinks in the scent becomes more subtle, and more bearable. It has a wonderful whipped texture to it, and it sinks in immediately leaving no greasy residue behind, just nice supple skin. Again, there are other scents I prefer but some of the textures can be …Read more

Should have read the reviews before making a purchase. Super expensive, sheds, and the bristles are pretty scratchy. I expected more from mac. Ive used much cheaper brushes that were waaaay softer and did not shed. This is going back immediately.
