Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Butter Gloss

2.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Pros: wide shade variety, buttery feel, pleasant vanilla scent (could be a con if you are sensitive to smells), shiny, large amount of product per price (0.27oz/$5), frequently on sale

Cons: streaky color application, streaks with normal lip movement, can look globby because of streaking.


At one time, these were my favorite glosses and I owned probably close to 20 in …

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Gloss - Super Orgasm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Pros: Sheer color application of pink shimmer, not streaky or globby, smooth buttery feel, low maintenance application that you can do without a mirror because of the shearness/non streaking, hydrating, doesn't feather outside of my lips with normal wear (of course eating, kissing, etc will move the gloss), sleek packaging with no quality issues, 0.18oz per tube (more product than many other …Read more

Lip Gloss - No7 - High Shine Lip Gloss

2.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I don't love No 7 High Shine Lip Gloss - they are just OK. I own Roaring Red, Pink Hydrangea, Sparkling Rose, Pink Slip, Shimmering Grapefruit


Pros: The dark colors are intensely pigmented, all colors have a "wet look", and there are shimmer shades in the light colors. Buttery, smooth feel. Not tacky (although, I like tacky glosses). A huge amount of product for the …

1.0

I have started this review several times over the last several months and have not had the heart to submit. I really, really want to like this lip gloss, but I cannot rate it well. I own the shades Champagne (shimmering warm nude), Almost Natural (light nude pink), Soft Rose (nude mauve cream), and Moonlight (white holographic with iridescent pink reflect).


Pros: Muted nude tones …

Lips - REVLON - Kiss Plumping Lip Creme

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Pros: Neutral colors, muted shades. Even the dark shades are not dark (this is a pro for me, but may be a con for you).

Cons: The formula is somewhere between a cream lipstick and a lip gloss, but it's too creamy and moist to work effectively. It leaves movement lines on my lips, while also accentuating texture and making my lips look globby. The applicator tip does not spread …

Sunscreen - BIODERMA - Photoderm Max SPF50+ Spray

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I started looking around for an economical solution of an equivalent or better sunscreen than Biore's UV Rich Watery Essence. I use those bottles extremely quickly since the bottles are small and I wear sunscreen everyday on my face, neck, chest, and hands (rest of the body is covered by clothing). I wore this for the first time this week over several days. I have not had breakouts or acne …Read more

This is a review for the Itch Defense variation of this product. I have eczema patches on my elbows and feet, and my body skin (particularly my legs) can be very dry and itchy. My skin can be very itchy, dry, and tight within minutes of exiting the shower. I have tried baby oil to try to keep my skin hydrated, but it caused irritation, itching, and bumps. I bought this product, not really sure …Read more

Lip Gloss - bareMinerals - GEN NUDE Buttercream Lip Gloss

2.0

2 months ago

These smell awful- exactly like playdough. I received two shades, Sugar and Tantalize, in separate "value packs" and I'm so glad I did not buy them individually because they are rank. I much prefer mint, vanilla, or odorless smells but this is plasticy playdough. Smell a tester before you buy because you may regret it otherwise. The color payoff is good and the tube/applicator is …Read more

Shampoo - Hask - Blue Chamomile & Argan Oil Blonde Care Shampoo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I usually use the GVP version of Shimmer Lights from Sally's Beauty, but this was cheaper and I like other Hask products so I thought I'd give it a go. Unlike other toning shampoos I've tried, this does not lather with blue or purple suds- they were almost completely white. It also lathered so much, oh my goodness. I haven't had a shampoo lather this much. I didn't think …Read more

Hair Treatments - Not Your Mother's - Activated Bamboo Charcoal & Purple Moonstone Restore & Reclaim Scalp Scrub

1.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I am growing my hair out from a pixie cut (it's at awkward bob length now) and I told the sales associate that I wanted something that would help protect my hair as it grows. She suggested a scalp scrub to help promote growth and led me to this product. This product is intended to remove build up from dry shampoo and other hair products and gently exfoliate the scalp. It sounded really nice …Read more
