Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Finish Concealer

5.0

After using this product for months it is time to completely rewrite my review. This is currently my HG concealer. It does a great job covering up my acne spots and discoloration under my eyes. I find it necessary to set it with a translucent powder under the eyes, or its creamy formula will crease almost instantly. I also like that it has buildable coverage. I use it in NW15 under my eyes …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2012

A MAC artist tried this on me yesterday when I stopped by my local MAC store. I find it to be of better quality than most drugstore foundations but not as lovely as my Lancome Teint Ultra Idole. It has medium, buildable coverage; I would need a concealer to help cover up my acne scars if I wanted my skin to look flawless. The finish of this foundation is pretty matte, but it wasn't …Read more

Mascara - Lancôme - Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2012

I wouldn't call myself a fanatic over this mascara, but I definitely like it. I am on my second tube of it and I am satisfied. It has a tapered brush that both fans the outer lashes and gets at the ones in the inner corners. It separates, volumizes and lengthens, but doesn't hold a curl whatsoever (which is why if they make a waterproof version of this, I need to try it!). If …Read more

Fragrances - Burberry - Body Eau de Parfum

Like previous reviewers, I don't believe Burberry Body meshes well with my own personal scent. However, I like the way it smells on its own, and I 'm sure it smells lovely on the right person. I disagree with reviewers that say it smell cheap, though; it smells like the expensive fragrance it is ($55 for 1 oz.), in my opinion.

Mascara - bareMinerals - Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara

Mar/27/2011

For starters, I've been using this mascara in the waterproof formula. This mascara is the first one I've moderately liked in a while. My skin is oily/sensitive/acne prone and almost every mascara I've used smudges on my lids even if I use Urban Decay Primer Potion before applying the mascara. I knocked off one lippy from this review because this mascara only smudges a teeny bit …Read more

Mascara - Cargo Cosmetics - TexasLash

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/27/2011

I was really hoping that I'd love Texas Lash, assuming from the name that it would give voluptuous volume. Unfortunately, it did not live up to its name. Volume was okay, but 1) it doesn't hold a curl (and I curled my lashes with the Shiseido eyelash curler before applying this mascara every time) and 2) it began to flake like mad after only a few uses. It is because of the flaking …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Neutrogena - Body Lotion

Jan/24/2011

This is my new HG body lotion. I love it! I am apprehensive to buy lotions with fragrance because I'm super allergy prone. Thankfully, this lotion hasn't broken me out in a rash, and I actually like the light scent it has. It provides enough hydration for me during these cold, dry winter months, though it a lotion more suitable for summer. If your skin is extremely chapped this …Read more

Lip Treatments - eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Summer Fruit

Jan/24/2011

I LOVE this lip balm! I've had a difficult time this year on my quest for a hydrating lip balm, and this one is the winner! I like it better than my Blistex and Neutrogena balms. It truly has a fruity smell and taste to it which is rather appealing. For me it has had staying power, and I haven't had to reapply often. I work as a cashier, and this flavor sells the best at my store. …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Booths - Black Licorice Eye Cream

May/20/2010

"This non-greasy eye cream fights back with natural avocado, wheat germ oils and most importantly black licorice root. Signs of aging are visibly diminished, and the suppleness of younger, healthier-looking skin is instantly restored."

Yum...this product really DOES smell like black licorice! (which may or may not be a good thing, depending on personal preference...I …

Moisturizers - AcneFree - Oil Absorbing Green Tea Moisturizer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2010

In my opinion, AcneFree's green tea moisturizer is better than ProActiv's, and you get four times as much for a fraction of the price! I decided to buy this on sale from Ulta because I'm running out of my ProActiv moisturizer and can't afford to buy another. Figured this green tea moisturizer couldn't be too much different than the other, and it isn't! Great …Read more
