I dropped in at Sephora to pick up a concealer, and was accosted (I know this is a harsh word, but if you've ever been to Sephora, you'll know what I mean) by an associate. I told her I wanted to be matched for Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage. She did just that...but did she stop there? She asked me if I was using a primer before applying my foundation and I said, 'No". …Read more

Mar/21/2013

I purchased this and am happy with the esthetics of this product, i.e., how it feels, absorption, etc; however, when I wrote to the company asking about the types and percentages of active ingredient (Vitamin C), this was their response:
Thank you for contacting Natures Gate. I am unable to provide you percentage information as this is considered proprietary to our suppliers and/or formula …

OK, so it's not the BEST mascara on the market, but here's why I use it ( all the time):

I have 65 year old hooded eyes. My lashes are long, but thin. Most regular mascaras wind up transfering to my brow bone. I hate wearing waterproof mascara, because it's a mother to remove. Enter Lash Stiletto. It is not a volumizing mascara, however, I have read many anti-aging …

As an older woman with hooded eyes, I have to say that this mascara has been a god-send. Every other mascara I've tried...high end or low...has made me look like a racoon by the end of the day. I was on a quest for the perfect waterproof mascara (often smudged by the end of the day and hell to remove) when I found L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes. Of course, it's not perfect. …Read more

Sorry to see so many bad reviews for this product. I have both this, and the L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Liner. The Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen is my favorite, hands down. Why? The L'Oreal product comes out very liquid and is easily smudged. This is the 'fatal flaw' that I equate to almost all liquid eye liners I have tried. As ofther reviewers have …Read more

Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Once Removed Polish Remover & Nail Treatment System

Jan/31/2010

Once Removed remover was reformulated because it contain an ingredient that was a precursor to the drug GHB, a highly addictive substance. People with really serious GHB habits were known to drink Once Removed right out of the bottle if they needed a fix and had no other options.

Word got out about Once Removed & the manufacturer got a lot of grief from parents, journalists and …

Just a note about this Milani nail product regarding comments that it has a very matte finish. If you will notice on the bottle under the Milani banner it says 'Nail Art'. This is not the same finish as the Milani 'Nail Lacquer'. It is made in the matte finish to allow the user to apply nail art on the surface and have it adhere well. Once the art (rhinestones, decals …Read more

Extra Life Top Coat has the same formula as Revlon's Colorstay Nail Enamel's clear sealant. Make sure your two coats of colored enamel are dry before sealing with Extra Life Top Coat. I've had my mani last for almost 10 days with this stuff. I can't live without it!

I purchased this polish in one of the darker colors several years ago and HATED IT. Very hard to apply and impossible to remove. I was browsing one of my local discount beauty supply stores recently and saw this in a sheer called Absolute Bliss. For a buck, I decided to give it another try. OMG! This stuff was amazing! I applied it on a Saturday evening and it was still in place 10 days …Read more
