Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Jean Philippe Paris--JLo Glow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This perfume cost $1 at Dollar Tree. I bought it several years ago to "test drive" JLo Glow and see if I might want to invest in a bottle of the real thing. There's still enough perfume snob in me that I usually only wore this at home. I love to wear perfume to bed, or spray it in my bed before I get in, so that's mostly how I used this. I enjoy reading fragrance reviews …Read more

Contour - RIMMEL - Kate Sculpting Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2018

I won't go into a lot of detail on this since there are already plenty of reviews of it. Basically I bought this because I'm addicted to makeup and this little palette was a good deal for the price, especially with the coupon I had. I got the #1 Golden Sands because it was the only set they had at the store I was at. This lightest combination would be the one recommended for me …Read more

Highlighters - L.A. COLORS - Contour Stick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/30/2018

I found this 'contour stick' in the shade "Highlighter" at the dollar store for $1. I'm in a phase of using cream products all over my face recently, and I figured that since I have very fair skin, I could use this when I'm on the go. The price is great, and I like that L.A. Colors is cruelty free. The ingredients listed on the stick are: isopropyl myristate …Read more

I found this 'contour stick' in the shade "Light to Brighten" at the dollar store for $1. I'm in a phase of using cream products all over my face recently, and I figured that since I have very fair skin, I could use this as a concealer when I'm on the go. The price is great, and I like that L.A. Colors is cruelty free. The ingredients listed on the stick are: …Read more

Powder - Unlisted Brand - Jerome Alexander Magic Minerals

Aug/03/2018

I am currently bored/frustrated with my foundation routine, and I recently learned about this product while browsing on Amazon. I have always wanted to find a foundation that I could just sponge or brush on from a compact and go, but so far I haven't found it. "Magic Minerals" is a pressed mineral powder that is supposed to be suitable for most skin colors and quick and easy to …Read more

Eye Shadow - W7 - In the Mood and In the City

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2018

This is one of several W7 products I own, and I'm kind of disappointed in it. I was attracted by the fact that W7 is cruelty-free, and I like products in tins (probably a little too much!). Also, I was intrigued by the similarity to the Naked travel palette--the W7 version I got is In the City. So I do like the packaging. It's a little bulky, but not too big for my purse and …Read more

Eye Shadow - RIMMEL - Magnif'eyes Eyeshadow Palette - Grunge Glamour

Feb/16/2018

Apparently I've been overcome by the desire to own all the eyeshadow known to humankind, and this palette is part of my collection. Unfortunately, this product is a dud. I bought it about a year ago, and I got a really good deal on it. The palette was on the clearance rack of my grocery store, and I also had a coupon for $1 off, so I got this baby for about $3. (I actually would have …Read more

Eye Shadow - Kleancolor - Classic Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2018

I received this item in kind of a strange way. Via the internet, I received an offer of a nude eyeshadow palette that was free, although I would have to pay $5 shipping. No brand was specified. While I knew the palette wouldn't be top quality, I ordered it anyway and then waited impatiently for my package. I was so excited when it came--I think every makeup lover knows that feeling! I …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Nude by Rihanna Eau de Parfum

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/09/2018

I hardly ever regret buying a fragrance, even if it is a blind buy. I found this at a reasonable price, and it came with a sample size of Reb'l Fleur, so I got it. I've used this several times, and I find it very disappointing. When I spray it on and it's still wet, it smells like the nectar of the gods, but after that--even right after it dries--nothing. It might as well be …Read more

Fragrances - Avon - Imari

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2017

This is the story of Imari and me. We go way back--this was one of my staple fragrances in the 1990s, and I remember being complimented on it. In 2005, Avon advertised a 20th-anniversary bottle of the perfume, and I bought one. It's in a lovely little bottle with a stopper. I guess it wasn't my 'thing' then, so I put it away and forgot about it. I found it a while back …Read more
