I posted this review elsewhere, but I love MakeupAlley, so I hope it's OK if I repost it:

Name any of the top acne treatments, and I've probably tried it. I started to get acne around early college, and despite what other's told me ("You'll grow out of it", "You just need to use productx"), it only got worst with age. I literally never left the …

Deodorants - Crystal - Crystal Mineral Roll-On Body Deodorant

Aug/06/2010

I'm smelly. There, I said it. My boyfriend can go a week sans showers and still smells like roses, while I definitely need to re-apply after 10-12 hours. I hate stick deodorant, but the hard salt crystal just does NOT work for me. I tried another roll-on crystal deodorant, but it barely worked better.

The Crystal Essence Pomegranate lasts ALL day and night, through workouts, heat …

Skincare - Face - Pro Activ - 3-Step System

Jan/10/2006

Can I say ProActiv is the devil? Because it is. Seriously, it gave me giant, painful cysts that left scars. I'm 21, and never got acne scars until Pro Activ. It did leave my skin feeling smoother, and the smaller zits went away, but the big ones just got bigger. After using it for 4 months, it started to become painful to apply, and the scrub/face wash was too harsh. I say try it because …Read more

I'm not a fan of this as a mask. It just seems to leave my skin dry, and nothing else. But as an overnight pimple treatment, WOW. It really seems to dry up my pimples and reduce my blackheads overnight. It's still pretty drying so I can't use it every night, but it works great as aweekly or bi-weekly treatment. It really reduces the size AND redness of them. It's also dirt …Read more

Highlighters - Bobbi Brown - Shimmerbrick Shimmer Brick Compact (All colors)

I got the bronze shimmerbrick from a friend who accidently bought two. This thing is what got me into makeup! It is so very long lasting! I use it mainly as eyeshadow, and use a bit to highlight and define my cheeks. I'm not sure if I'd use it heavily on my face, as it is VERY shimmery. EVERY TIME, and I mean literally every time I wear it on my eyes I get compliments! They are the best …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - XXL volume+length microfiber mascara

Jun/29/2005

I bought this at walmart because it was only $5 and came with a free lipgloss. I think it does give nice, natural looking length, but it just takes so darn long to put on. For some reason it's harder for me to apply. I think it's the package. It looks ok but just not worth repurchasing.
<p>I get a better result if I just layer my volumious with waterproof Illegal lengths on …

Maybe I'm applying this wrong, but even when used wet it's just too sheer. I use UD primer potion and it still barely shows up on me. I was looking for a more pigmented, less yellow gold, and this just isn't the right one. I did like the price though!! UPDATE: This shade FADES like no other, even with my UD primer. Not even worth the 3 dollars to me.

Being a college student with a rather hectic lifestyle, I often don't have the energy, time or sobriety (lol) to clean my face. Rather than sleep in my makeup, I'll whip out one of these and use it to wash my face... laying down! These cloths don't punish my lazyness, instead leaving me with a clean, moisturized face. I would never use these everyday because they don't leave …Read more
