LOVE this stuff! I used to have something similar from Mark but it went south and I had missed it terribly. I've done a lot of self-tanning but no matter what I do or what I use there's always some kind of drawback related to application - specifically, if it sets awkwardly, you're screwed. With this stuff, you get your color, but what you see when you put it on is actually what …Read more

This stuff is amazing! I've been using it once a week for four weeks now, and it's made my skin smoother and more even-looking, and I'm not breaking out as much! Be sure to shake it very well before using it, because it will come out watery otherwise.

Such a disappointment! I went looking for Painterly (after hearing so many wonderful things about it) and the MAC person recommended this instead (glad they did; Painterly would have been too dark for me). I've been using it off and on for a few months now and I just can't seem to make it do anything special. It doesn't make my e/s adhere any better or keep it from fading. It does …Read more

I LOVE this! I normally don't go for reds, but for some reason this one called to me and I was stunned by how well it went with my skin. I would call it a soft red, neither too orange nor too blue. Perfect for everyday wear. Great consistency, a bit of a jelly-like shine.

Wow, another 'I wish I'd read the reviews' product! I would never have paid $24 for this, but on sale for $12 I thought it was a good deal. Boy was I wrong. The formula on these is atrocious, the kind where you have to practically scrape at it to get up any product at all. Once swatched, only one or two of the shades even appeal to me. The 2 glitter colors, on the outside, are the …Read more

This is so gorgeous! I don't think the photo here presents it accurately (and forget the one on Cherry Culture!) - it's has a lot of fine gold glitter. However, it still reads as fairly neutral, with the gold balance by the soft, silvery purple color of the shadow. The mix of shadow and fine glitter reminds me of LA Splash glitter e/s. As with all things glitter, it doesn't stay …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Gold Bond - Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion with Aloe

Sep/25/2010

This stuff is amazing! This summer I got a terrible sunburn on my legs; after the pain finally went away (after several days of using lidocaine gel) I went looking for something with aloe to help heal my skin, which I feared was permanently damaged. After about a week of using this I couldn't believe how much my skin had improved! I saw the inflammation and a lot of the redness subside very …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mechanical Eyelash Curler

Sep/21/2010

This is an awesome tool! At $1, it's an amazing value - for the quality I think you could reasonably pay $7 or 8 at least. It's well-designed, and I like that it has a rubbery, non-stick pad (it even comes with a spare!) - I prefer to curl my lashes after mascara, and the pads traditionally found on curlers make that almost impossible. One lippie off because the curl isn't …Read more

Yes, $1 is a great price. This shadow, however, isn't even worth 25 cents. There's pretty much zero color payoff whatsoever, it's dry and chalky, and if you manage to get some on over a primer it will still be gone in no time. Avoid at all costs!

I really wanted to love this! I'm an equal-opportunity e/s user - I'll try anything, and I won't presume to dislike something just because it's inexpensive. This was one of the first 3 e.l.f. products I ever bought (all were Custom Eyes, after seeing the great reviews on here), and I was very disappointed. First, it was a bit of a struggle to get enough of the product onto a …Read more
