Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Mia Smart 3-in-1 Connected Sonic Beauty Device

5.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

TL;DR I LOVE it, but the app is gimmicky/unnecessary.

I purchased the mint green Mia Smart bundle that includes the facial cleaning device, a Radiance brush head, a Firming Massage head, an Eye Massager, the charging stand and an AC adapter. Oddly enough, when I went to register in the app, I believe the color was listed as sea foam (or something similar). I purchased mine on QVC and the …

Pressed Powders - Nuance by Salma Hayek - Mineral Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2011

The Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Coverage Mineral Foundation is HG for me. However, I do not find it works well alone as a foundation replacement (not enough coverage). This is a fantastic, lightweight, finely milled powder that applies brilliantly with my ELF Studio brush as a setting powder over my TM (or foundation) and cream blush for daily use. I wear the Medium/Deep and LOVE it. I do not …Read more

Lip Gloss - Unlisted Brand - Purple Lab Huge Lips Skinny Hips

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/05/2011

I bought a number of Purple Lab products on clearance, many of which were the glosses (Worship Kate, Kitty Pole Dancer, Red Sole, Lychee Martini, Goji Berry Smoothie, and No Panty Lines). I like this gloss a lot; it's not sticky and can be layered for desired effect. It is *quite* sheer and the less you use, the less glossy it is. I don't particularly need any lip plumping action, but …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Unlisted Brand - Purple Lab Pearlesque Show

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/05/2011

I had high expectations for this primer and my hopes were not only met, they were surpassed! I grabbed a few on clearance and figured if they weren't good, no harm done. First of all, the 1.7 oz size is quite large for a primer. Once I opened the product I was skeptical with all the verbiage about 'perfect alabaster skin.' I'm a brown-skinned girl, and the last thing I need is …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Zeno Hot Spot Blemish Clearing Device

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2010

This is the newest generation of Zeno products. I've been thinking about purchasing the Hot Spot for a while, and since it was on sale this week and I developed a monster zit on my right cheek, there was no time like the present.

The Hot Spot is disposable; there are no refills. It lasts for ~80 treatments before you dispose of it and its AA batteries (it requires 2, which come …

Treatments (Face) - Renee Rouleau - Night Time Spot Lotion

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2010

I received a full-sized product for review and I am surprised and pleased to share that this is a new must-have product for me! I will be purchasing another to keep at my boyfriend’s house. Not all overnight spot treatments are the same, and Renée Rouleau Night Time Spot Lotion proves it. You apply it with a cotton swab (like other overnight spot treatments) after shaking the product to mix it …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Lancôme - Génifique Eye

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2009

I received a full size of this product for review. This product has a creamy yet light texture, described on the package as a "gel-cream" which is accurate. It absorbs immediately and does not have an unpleasant odor. The jar is a nice-sized 1/2 ounce, which, unfortunately detracts from the product. I do not like jar packaging for treatment products, especially eye treatments. That …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Pretika Sonic Dermabrasion Facial Care System (Clarisonic dupe)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2009

I have a generally very good skin care regimen overall, but wondered if there might be something out there to beat the efficacy of my trusty microfiber cloths... well, the Pretika Sonic Dermabrasion brush is it. I do not have any issue with the quality of the bristles, nor the foaming of my cleanser. The brush holds a charge for a *very* long time, which is convenient. My skin feels softer than …Read more
