Loose Powders - e.l.f. Cosmetics - High Definition Powder

Nov/01/2012

I have three targets in my town, only one sells a huge selection of E.L.F products. I have the MUFE version of this silica powder, so I can do a just comparison. This product was $5.00 on sale. It really does diffuse the look of large pores, does not allow my skin to get shiny throughout the day ( I use if over primer and ELDW) and does not break me out. You get a huge amount of loose powder …Read more

I have a slew of eye make up removers, from Lancome's Bi-facial, to Milani (had to order from MIlanis website) to Sonia K....and have tried al the DS varieties. I stumbled upon this remover at TJ Maxx, and have fallen in love with it. It cost $14.99, so it is extremely expensive imho for an eye make remover, but it is awesome...removes ever trace of WP mascara and WP eyeliner, that even my …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Clump Crusher Mascara

Nov/01/2012

I don't know what I was thinking, I normally buy all mascaras in the WP version, as my lashes will not hold a curl otherwise! I fell into the hype of this newest mascara (no WP version available yet) and while it did not clump at all, it also added zero volume or length. It says "volume" on the package, so that was not true. I returned mine, because I have other mascaras that do …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Extra volume - collagene

I have this mascara in the regular and waterproof version. The regular tube is a wet formula and the WP was dry when new. The only way I can get this mascara to work for me is to apply to curled lashes in quick fan like motion straight up. I need just two coats. It then gives me long, defined lashes. If I zig zag this mascara it will clump horribly. I had MUFE's aqua lash and MUFE smokey …Read more

Liquid - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Teint Ultra-Workable Fluid Corrective Foundation SPF 25

I am on the fence about this product. I said I would not repurchase, but I am using this foundation now. I ordered this foundation site unseen and got beige sable, which is too dark for me, so I was only using it on small parts over my EL double wear to add a little bit more coverage to reddish areas (specifically, the tip of my nose). But now that I am really tan and dark this summer, my EL …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - California Baby - Super Sensitive Shampoo & Bodywash

My daughter, who just turned 8, has the most sensitive skin. Everything burns (so she says!) when I bathe her. I have tried it all and until I found this at Target, baths were never fun. True, this does not suds much, but possibly, that is why it is so gentle? It never burns her sensitive areas and bathing is a easy now. It was expensive for a body wash, but I do like the packaging and the …Read more

Jun/20/2008

I totally agree with the review below mine. I bought two bottles of this stuff on sale. It did dry my polish fast, but then the next day, no matter what polish I used, the entire thing would peel off and take all my polish with it! What a rip off...After reading so many glowing reviews of this stuff and then trying it over and over again always to the same peeling polish the next day, I was …Read more

I got a sample of this and tried it a few times. I guess for a moisturizer only it is fine, but as make up...NO way...this just sunk into my skin as if I had nothing on my face, so I don't see the point in it at all. I threw the sample away as there was no need to finish it. I don't even understand what this is for? If I want to wear lotion that gives some coverage like a sheer …Read more

Pressed Powders - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder

2.0

Jun/11/2008

First of all, who would sell a pressed powder with no powder puff?! Secondly, a screw off lid, just strange...I bought Transparent and only bought it hoping to use a tiny dusting over my concealer to set it because another MUA user used the old discontinued Rimmel powder to set her concealer. Well...no matter how tiny of the amount I lightly dusted on, it aged me 10 years, just total …Read more
