Fragrances - MAC Cosmetics - Creations Hue: Turquatic Heat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/19/2008

Released with the Cool Heat collection in summer 2008, MAC describes Turquatic Heat as the following:

"Like its sister fragrance, refreshing to the senses but infused with a sultry Mediterranean allure throughout its middle-notes. The first splash aqua-vescent, as sun-touched cedrat, mineral water and lotus flower explode on the skin. Heat and passion follow as opulent orris …

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Play Your Cards Right Massage Bar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2008

I was worried that I'd find the scent overwhelming but it's absolutely perfect. Softer than the Sex Bomb fragrance, but similar. I've read that you can pop out the little red hearts but they haven't bothered me enough to do that yet. This melts more easily on me than some of the other massage bars. Overall I'm very happy and will probably repurchase once I use it up. …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Velvet Blush - Desirous

3.0

Oct/25/2006

If you like the velvet texture, you'll probably like this blush. Personally, I hate velvets - most of the time I find them to be chalky. Unfortunately that's the way I feel about this blush. The color builds well though, but I don't find that the sparkle shows up much at all. And my biggest complaint is that I couldn't tell the sparkle was gold, which I was really looking …Read more

Lip Treatments - The Body Shop - Hi-Shine Lip Treatment in Red Gleam

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2006

I was a little disappointed that this wasn't as pigmented as it looked in the tube but it's still a really, really pretty lip gloss. It feels so good on - very moisturizing. It lives up to its name with its very glossy finish. It's not overly sticky though. Red Gleam is a pinky-red gloss with red glimmer. What really keeps me from buying more of these though is the smell. …Read more

Eyeliner - Avon - Feeling Fine Ultra Thin Eye Liner

4.0

Feb/01/2006

As someone who prefers pencil liners over any other formula, I absolutely love this product. I can be pretty clumsy with my hands sometimes because of my fibromyalgia pain so applying darker liner colors can be tough. The super-thin pencil design is awesome and really helps me control application. I took off one lippie for lasting power since it smudges on my lower lash line and in the outer …Read more

Eyeliner - mark. - on the edge hook up eyeliner

Jan/10/2006

I've tried every shade of this liquid liner. They're wonderful - the applicator is great, and the formula allows for smooth, evenly pigmented application that lasts all day. So why a 3 out of 5 rating? The packaging is terrible. You have to be very careful to close them tightly or they will dry out unbelievably fast. I only have one of the shades I purchased a couple months ago due …Read more

Dec/27/2005

I was a little frustrated that there weren't any reviews for this before I ordered. But oh well, I guess I'll be the first! I was scared to death that this stuff would turn my skin orange or something. It comes out of the tube a weird gray color and is supposed to blend and adapt with your unique skin tone and chemistry. I love this as a foundation primer. I use Bare Minerals …Read more

Lipstick - Avon - Beyond Color Lip Recovery Cream

Dec/08/2005

I really love this stuff. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because of the packaging and the smell. I hate click wands, they're so annoying. The smell, I can't describe it but I know I'm not fond of it. Thankfully I get used to it though. I really love the consistency, staying power, and moisturizing quality - and it looks great on me. I have two colors (Double Fudge, Merlot) and …Read more

Mascara - bareMinerals - Big Tease Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/08/2005

I got this in the Gift of Giving set. I wasn't expecting it to be anything spectacular but I'm actually really impressed. The design of the wand has long bristles on one side to lengthen and shorter, more compact bristles on the other side to add volume. I use the lengthening side first and then immediately follow with the voluminizing side. It does get a little clumpy but I just …Read more

Palettes - Hard Candy - Jewel Box Eye and Lip Palette

Dec/01/2005

You really can't beat this for the price. I bought this for the eye shadows. You get a mini Old Skool quad ($28 full size) plus 4 mini Eye Candy shadows ($12.50 each full size). I have so many eye shadows that there's no way I need to pay for the full size versions to be happy. This will still last me forever! The lip gloss are cute too but the amount of product you get is pretty …Read more
