BB Cream - Tarte Cosmetics - BB Tinted Treatment Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

What a disappointment this product is. I seem to be in the small minority of people for whom it transforms skin into an oil slick within minutes. My skin is not usually all that oily. As soon as I put this onto my skin (only a small amount), it feels as though my skin is suffocating. It's a sort of 'smothered' feeling. Perhaps this is what causes my skin to freak out and start …Read more

Wonderful mascara, IMPOSSIBLE TO REMOVE!

This mascara does what I always hope mascara will do -- lengthen, thicken, define, not get clumpy or too stiff. My lashes look really lovely with this mascara and the very best thing of all is it doesn't crumble off throughout the day, or smudge, or show up under my eyes as the day wears on.

The amazing wear and ability to …

Treatments (Face) - Jan Marini Skin Research - C-Esta Serum Oil Control

Sep/28/2013

I am a long-time Jan Marini fan, having used the Clean Zyme cleanser for years, as well as most of the Bioglycolic line. Recently, my skin has become very oily, and I thought the C-Esta Oil Control Serum would be just the thing. At $90, I had great expectations for this stuff! What a let-down.

I've been using it over a month now, and have finally given up on it after …

Powder - Lancôme - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

May/20/2013

This is going back to the Lancome counter. I asked for a setting powder, and the saleswoman recommended this powder. The overpowering old lady scent really puts me off, and the finish is so matte that it looks terribly unnatural on me. I got the powder in the lightest color, and it has a pinkish cast that makes my face look red. I don't find that it lasts particularly well, as I have …Read more

So disappointed in this foundation! After seeing the positive reviews here on MUA, and reading the excellent ingredients, I was very enthusiastic to try this product. However, there are a lot of problems with it as a foundation. The coverage is minimal -- it does not cover acne, scars, and has the really annoying habit of sinking right into pores and making them look huge. It applies …Read more

Powder - Gabriel - Zuzu Luxe Dual Powder Foundation

Jul/10/2011

While I love the idea of this powder, as well as the ingredients, I am disappointed in the product. The coverage is minimal; it does not cover acne scars or zits, or really even minimize redness. It seems to disappear in a few short hours, and only soaks up oil initially -- then my face is greasy in about three hours. I think the packaging is cute, but I find the application sponge rather …Read more

Dec/20/2007

After hearing so many good things about this mineral foundation, I was really excited about trying it out. Using it has been a very disappointing experience. What concerned me the most was that it made my skin incredibly itchy. I don't have sensitive skin -- I can't think of any makeup product that my skin has ever reacted to before. About an hour after application of the powder, I …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/28/2007

What a disaster this foundation turned out to be! The MAC saleswoman told me that this foundation would give my skin a "dewy" appearance, and what I got was a completely horrible-looking oil slick. I have acne-prone skin and some scarring (not oily skin, though), and asked for a foundation that covered well. The SW assured me that Mineralize's coverage was excellent and …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Define A Lash Mascara

1.0

Jul/20/2007

Quite possibly the worst mascara I have ever tried. The wand is flimsy and annoying: I have thick lashes, and when I try to apply the mascara, my lashes actually bend the wand so application is very uneven and clumpy; somehow all the mascara winds up in the middle of my lashes and no where else. The oddly-shaped little brush applies in thick clots that dry into impossible clumps that are …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Philosophy - On A Clear Day H2O2

Nov/22/2006

I've been using On a Clear Day at night, after washing with Carley's Clear and Smooth (which has pretty much eliminated acne from my life), to speed healing and I'm impressed. Not only is it contributing to clearing up small breakouts quickly, it's helping fade my old acne marks. It doesn't dry my skin out (most acne products do - and then the skin peels, and then …Read more
