This did not burn me, but that could be because it looked so awful that I removed it immediately. My main problem with this is that it had a really different tone on my skin than it did in the packaging. I bought the white one thinking that it could be nice as a gel eyeliner. It looks very opalescent in the case, but it was an absolutely flat, chalky white on my skin. I also didn't care …Read more

Hair Removal - Nair - SENSITIVE (blue tube) Bikini Area Cream

I really think the success of this product depends on how coarse your hair is. Mine is very coarse, and Nair gave me patchy removal with some strands of hair disappearing entirely from view, some leaving little tiny nubs by the surface of my skin, and some looking exactly the same as they did before I'd used it. The smell wasn't strong, and it did not sting or irritate my skin, but in …Read more

This stuff really surprised me. I picked it up thinking that since it was only $2, it couldn't hurt to try it. I expected it to be very sheer, so I used a little extra force when applying it. I was shocked to see that it was actually quite pigmented. I bought the color "tart" which is sort of a coppery shade in the tube. I thought it might be a little more orangey than what I …Read more

Concealers - Sally Hansen - Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Fast Fix Concealer

May/04/2010

I cannot attest to whether or not this was as drying on me as it was for others because it looked so awful that I could not leave it on any longer than a few minutes. First of all, this is very light. I have light-medium, olive skin, so I bought the medium, and it was VERY fair on my skin and really difficult to blend. It looks much lighter on than it does in the packaging and in the on-shelf …Read more

I've been meaning to try this for a while, and I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately, I did not. I have light, but olive skin, and I went with the light-medium shade, which is probably the best match for me. It was, however, a little too orange in tint for my mostly yellow skin, and the contrast was just too great. I was able to blend it to the point that the color wasn't …Read more

Polishes - NYC New York Color - Long Wearing Nail Enamel - Classic Coral Creme 130

This is a beautiful pink! When I first painted my nails, it did appear coral, but it has dried into a feminine pink, and I like it much more than I expected I would. I put on four very thin coats and then applied a clear top coat, and it dried very smoothly with no bubbles at all. I'm giving it a poor rating, though, because it has horrible staying power. I painted my nails at 3pm, and …Read more

It's so random that I even bought this shampoo. I think it only cost me about $2 after the mail-in rebate that came on the bottle -- which, now that I think of it, I don't think I sent in, so I guess it cost me a whopping $5. I had been using Naked Naturals shampoo before trying this, and I don't think I like this one as much. I still shampoo my hair ever other day, but it looks …Read more

Feb/19/2010

This was my first time trying one of Sally Hansen's cream blushes, and I'm afraid that I bought the wrong shade. I'm an olive skinned person, and this is just too pink for me. My skin is very light, however, for being so olive, so the other shades just looked too dark in the store, and I went with this one. Because of my skin tone, applying it is a very exact science. It can …Read more

Feb/19/2010

Considering that this moisturizer only costs about $3, I think it works really well. Deciding which color to buy was a little difficult. The plastic bottle is slightly frosted, so it's really difficult to tell what color it will be on the inside. For this reason, all of the seals had been broken by other customers who had needed to test the product to see the color. Understandable, I …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Trio TS1 - White/Gray/Black

Feb/19/2010

I really love the black eyeshadow in this trio. It's very dark, but it doesn't wear off and look streaky and weird throughout the day as black eyeshadow so often does on my oily eyelids. I use it as an eyeliner. The white and gray, however, barely/don't show up at all. I think I would like the white more if it were a bit more luminescent, but as it is, it goes on looking really …Read more
