I think this lip tint is really a true lipstick. It's a pretty pink nude. It's too pink for me to wear as a nude lipstick, as I tend to prefer more brown nudes, but - here's why I love it - it makes a lovely lipliner under just about any color. It gives other lipsticks staying power, and, it keeps other colors true. I have a big issue with most lipsticks turning on me - must be …Read more

This is a lovely, true "blush" or "flushed" color on me (light olive toned skin).I love the gel texture - I would have never thought I would like a gel or cream blush, since I have oily skin and love my powders. The cooling, gel feel on this is lovely and it blends like a dream. I have also found it to last all day.

A product that doesn't quite know what it wants to be: Interestingly enough, this product says to use twice a day, but it's really a morning primer. I thought it would be a good nighttime moisturizer, but I don't need a mattifying primer before bedtime, thanks. "Watch as advanced micro-fillers and light-diffusing particles smooth the look of fine lines right before your …Read more

I hate to be the negative one here, but I didn't care for this color at all - thank goodness for Walgreen's return policy! It came out almost orange-y on me - not at all the brownish purple I was expecting. Oh well. Not every color works for everyone! That said, I do wish there would have been a better way to see or test the color - the downfall of drugstore lipsticks, I suppose. …Read more

Hallelujah! They've brought my favorite scrub back, and it's even better than before - now that it's not bright stinkin' blue, it doesn't stain my grout anymore! :)

If you were a fan of the old blue Clearskin Invigorating Scrub, this is the near-exact replacement.

This is is a SERIOUS scrub. I love it! It's a pale green paste with quite …

I really like this product! So much, in fact, that I am considering buying another one as a backup, because I am sure this is one of those things that Avon puts out for a few months and doesn't keep permanent. It's a gel in a click pen applicator, and there are little hair-like fibers - very different from any pencil or powder product.
I bought this in Dark Brown, which is a …

This is a dual-ended colored lip balm stick. I have it in Garnet (which is actually pink, not red!).

One end is sheer colored lip balm, the other is an opal shimmer lip balm.

It smells and tastes divine (cocoa butter), lasts nicely for a sheer balm, and does a lovely job moisturizing your lips.

Jul/17/2010

These are pretty much just nail stickers. I doubt they would last a full 14 days, but you never know. I was able to get a week's worth of wear out of them before I took them off, because I was tired of them and started to pick at the edges.

I didn't think they did anything particularly strengthening to my nails. In fact, I was very disappointed because one nail cracked …

Lip Gloss - CLINIQUE - Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine in Blackberry Bloom

Ugh. There was nothing I liked about this gloss. First of all, it is by far the stickiest gloss I have ever used. Seriously, my hair got so stuck in it I had to rip it out!
The other big problem is that while it's such a pretty shade in the tube, I did not find it to be highly pigmented at all, and looked way too sheer on my lips.

I've been a fan of the original Voluminous formula for over 20 years now. This incarnation is a real disappointment in comparison. Last time I needed mascara, Walgreens was out of my beloved except for the Carbon Black, so I figured, eh, what the heck, it's just blacker, right? NOPE. The formula is completely different. It dries VERY stiff and VERY clumpy. It leaves me with …Read more
