This is one of the most underrated palettes out there. It has two gorgeous blushes, an amazing highlighter and bronzer, and 16 versatile eyeshadows. A few of them are a bit chalky, but overall they're great quality and give me a range of looks to choose from. There are a number of neutrals but also greys, a dark blue, a green, pink, and light blue. It's an amazing value and the perfect …Read more

This product. Is. AMAZING. First of all, I love retinol. I think it's a great way to get anti-aging benefits, and it's not as irritating as retin-A. I started off with Paula's choice Skin Balancing mattifying serum, and I liked that, but it has a very low percentage of retinol. Then I tried Skinceuticals .5 retinol, and that was SO irritating!! Made my skin flaky and just, not …Read more

I wouldn't recommend this! I agree with Ashley (hey girl :) -this product worked far better in the little package than in the jar. When I got the product in the jar, it stung my eyes and made them puffy, and the consistency was a weird chunky gel. Ingredients oxidize in air, so the jar packaging is such a waste. And yes, while it is well-formulated, the list of ingredients go on and on …Read more

My mom bought this cream based on my recommendation after I read these reviews. She also uses the Repair for chest and eyes and LOVES that, and I have used the Skin Strengthener and adore that. This product does not compare to those other two truly revolutionary products. It's highly fragranced and every time I use it, my eyes would get watery during the day. Using fragrance around the …Read more

A couple of years ago, my skin was a mess. It was cold and dry in the Midwest winter, and my skin was flaking as a result. It was also breaking out...so yes, breakouts with dryness. I got a sample of this and used it, and guess what? My skin cleared up. No more flaking, no more breakouts. My guess is if you have real "acne", then you would need something stronger. But anyone with …Read more

Ok, I really had to review this to save people the $90. Granted, I only used the sample, so I can't speak for the long term effects, but what I put on what truly hideous. The consistency is horrible..a previous reviewer was right to say it does not sink in, and does this weird thing where it spreads out everywhere BUT under your eyes. It stings, and dries my eyes out. And the next morning …Read more

Masks - Mario Badescu - Temporary Lifting Mask

Awesome mask!! I wouldn't use this everyday, but for a perfect lift-me up before a party, it's the best. I actually notice a VISIBLE change in my skin when I take it off...it always looks more rested and hydrated, even when I've pulled an all-nighter. It's drying, and you can only keep it on for 20 minutes, but it really does work. Try it!!

This product is the BOMB!!! I have normal-combo skin, and it does everything I want it to...brightens my skin, refines the pores, evens out the texture. It smells great and is not too drying...you can keep it on forever. This is my HG mask I use twice a week! If I want an immediate pick me up before a party, I will grab my Temporary Lifting mask, but that is too drying to use often. This is the …Read more

Jul/27/2009

Ummm....I don't understand some of the negative reviews on this product because this mascara is my HG!! For YEARS I struggled with finding the right mascara to "unclump" my curly lashes, to no avail. I would see all these girls with their lashes defined, and I couldn't understand why mine were always sooo clumpy! This works wonders...I start with my shu uemera eyelash curler …Read more

This is a MIRACLE product for my extremely fine, curly, dry hair! I have tried every leave-in in the world and this is the only one that didn't weigh my hair down but still moisturized and defined my curls. I bought five bottles last summer when I was told it was being discontinued, and I just finished my last bottle a week ago. Already I can see my hair is suffering-it's dry and …Read more
