Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Lip Crayon in Nude Berry

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/21/2010

I love lip crayons... the concept of a lip liner and lipstick all in one! Bobbi Browns Nude Berry is a muted brown with a hue of berry. It seems that BB likes to add brown shades to her lip products, a little too much so, IMO. Anyway, I do like the color (although I wish it had more "berry" as implied). It is not faint, nor is it too obvious. A perfect every day shade. The staying power …Read more

My hair> very fine but lots of it, soft, but stick straight with no body at all. I think it is worth noting that I am all thumbs when it comes to knowing how to do my hair. I am in the stages of growing my hair out and its not easy, as anyone will attest. I went from a pixie, and now its nearly shoulder length. Thanks to the MUA Beauties reviews, I have some knowledge on what to do now. First …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Neostrata - Bionic Eye Cream

Apr/17/2008

This was not good for me at all. It does absolutely nothing out of the ordinary for smoothing the under eye area. My biggest complaint, and why I had to toss this from almost the beginning, is that it made my eyes sting! I am over 50 and do have my share of undereye lines. No matter how far away from my eyes I applied this, it managed to creep up and sting my eyes and made them water. A waste of …Read more

TLC-light to medium coverage makeup.
I am usually a fan of TM's, but was looking for something with just a little more coverage. This pretty much fits the bill. I have oily skin, and this is a nice mattifying makeup. I go for hours without getting the shinies, and that is great considering I use a moisturizer underneath. I would not recommend this for dry skin. It however, does not …

Mascara - Merle Norman - Luxiva Supreme Lash Mascara

Nov/24/2007

I purchased this mascara after reading reviews on MUA. I have thin, straight lashes. I am quite pleased with the Luxiva Supreme Lash. It volumizes, lengthens, separates like no other, and does hold a curl fairly well. It doesn't clump at all, and has great lasting power with no flakies. No raccoon eyes! Hard to find a non waterproof that does all that. I find it washes off with cleanser …Read more

Nov/02/2007

I am disappointed with this because, IMO, it is not worth the high price tag. And I will tell you why. You get very little product, especially in the powder end. I initially bought two of these when I saw it on TV. I thought the first one was perhaps a mistake on the manufacturers end, so I didn't return either of them. But it turns out the 2nd one I am now on is the same way. The packaging …Read more

Loose Powders - Kryolan - Translucent Powder

I bought this after reading the reviews. I have very oily skin. This works extremely well on controlling the oil, better than anything I have ever used. But it makes my face look dry and washed out. For this reason I will not be using it much. Needless to say I wouldn't repurchase.

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Beyond Perfect - Sheer White Tea [DISCONTINUED]

Oct/29/2007

After reading the great reviews, I too had to try this nailpolish. It's been discontinued, so I paid the extra to get it from Ebay. Hopefully it will last to the end of the bottle, as I ended up paying almost $9. IMO so far, this is an excellent polish as it doesn't appear to chip and lasts quite a long time. On me, over a week with no top coat. It is a lovely innocent sheer color of …Read more

Mascara - Max Factor - Lash Perfection in Deep Blue

Sep/17/2007

This color flakes on me if I apply more than two coats.....which is what I need with this. One (or two) coats doesn't get it at all. At least in the black it shows up more. Like others have noted, you can't tell this is blue. It is not dramatic. I need to apply a lot to get my lashes noticed with this mascara, and then, it flakes. Will not repurchase. And in fact, will not even use up …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Sandy Gold

5.0

Sep/05/2007

Personally, I love this color and product. This goes great on the lids if I want to match an all over suntanned look. The staying power is unbelievable for a shadow. I am oily and it lasts all day on me. Sandy gold is a light color, so I usually end up layering it once or twice (with my finger). I also wear it at night on the inside corner of my lids, with galaxy in the crease, and the two go …Read more
