Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal Blue [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2007

I'm a big fan of the original black BadGal mascara, so I was excited to try this new blue version. I've been using it about three months, and I really like it. I have blue eyes, and I really think the blue tinge to the color makes me eyes look bigger and whiter/brighter. One of my favorite things about BadGal is the big, full, oversize applicator wand. I've found that the blue …Read more

Lipstick - benefit Cosmetics - Rush Hour for lips and cheeks

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2007

I'm a sucker for Benefit's slick marketing and cute retro packaging, so I find myself helpless against buying and trying almost ever new product they introduce. Sadly, a lot of them aren't so great. I'm happy to report that Rush Hour is one of my favorite new Benefit products in a long time. I'm not a blush gal, so I bought this solely for use as a lipstick. The …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Creative Nail Design - Stickey Base Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/27/2007

My holy grail basecoat. You should know I am NEVER without polish on my nails, and I'm strictly a red/dark polish gal. This is THE perfect primer for my polish. It is slicky tacky to the touch after you apply, but polish really adheres to it and stays on. It works equally well with salon-quality polishes as bargain finds, which I don't think you can say about all topcoats. I can …Read more

Moisturizers - Mario Badescu - Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15

Nov/23/2006

I've been using the MB Buttermilk Moisturizer for several years now, and I love it, but it contains oil and that doesn't go over well with my skin in the warmer months. So I wanted to try another product in the MB line that was both oil-free and had an SPF.

So far, I've been happy with the Aloe Moisturizer. It took about a week for my skin to adjust to using a new …

Treatments - Unlisted Brand - The Original One Minute Manicure

4.0

Dec/14/2005

I have to say, I was really impressed with this product. A small amount did wonders to my winter hands and left them feeling velvety smooth and moisturized. I find it a bit difficult to really mix the salt and oil together, when I go to dig in I usually lose a little oil off the top, but no biggie. Great scent and real results. This is a keeper!

Masks - Astara - Blue Flame Purification Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2005

I get real results with this product. I started using it after a facial, and I truly think it's made the results last. I use it once a week, followed by the Golden Flame mask for moisture, and I've noticed a definite change in clarity and softness of my face. My skin isn't particularly sensitive, but I can certainly see why this might irritate some people, because it does tingle …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Lip Glide - Berry Dazzling

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2005

I wonder if I got a bad/old tube, because it smells truly horrible, like rotten burnt plastic or something - yuck. It's a pretty color, but definately more light mauve than berry. There's slightly too much frost in it, and I need to mix this with some clear or nude gloss in order to wear it. I wouldn't repurchase due to the smell of the product and the general unwearability due …Read more

Lip Gloss - Stila - guava lipglaze

Dec/04/2005

I probably never would have picked this up on my own because it doesn't look like much in the tube, but I got it as a GWP and I like it a lot. It's a beautiful, natural pink with enough color to be noticable, but it's still glossy and sheer. It has a strange citrus smell, but it's not that strong so it doesn't really bother me. Doesn't last very long on me, but …Read more

Other - Crest - Whitestrips Premium

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/30/2005

I had no luck with the original Crest Whitestrips, but when they came out with this "stronger" formula I decided to give it another try. I did notice some subtle whitening effects (I experienced zilch with the original) but nothing dramatic and these are a pain to wear. They slide around like crazy and I feel like a slobbering, drooling mess while wearing them. Also, the taste is so …Read more
