Crème - CHANTECAILLE - Future Skin Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/04/2014

I've been using Future Skin on and off for a while now. At first, I wasn't overly impressed. I felt the coverage was too light, although I don't need anything heavy, as my skin is usually clear. However, I do tend to have some redness in my cheeks, and this didn't seem to cover it.

I recently tried it again and found that I really do like it a lot. I've found …

Treatments (Face) - Kiehl's - Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2014

I'm a little shocked that this product isn't rated higher. I've used all sorts of skin care products, both high- and low-end, and the PSLRC is definitely the one single item I can't live without. As a matter of fact, it's the only item I can remember buying more than once. I think I'm on my 4th bottle now.

This serum makes my skin smooth and glowing. In …

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2014

This has become my HG mascara...and I've tried them all, from the cheapest drugstore brands to the top-of-the-line high-end ones. It is truly the best mascara I've ever tried. I've gotten to the point where I don't like to spend much on mascara because even though I use a lot of it, I always end up throwing away the tube after 3 months (or it dries up on me). I can justify …Read more

Lip Liners - Jordana Cosmetics - Easyliner For Lips (All Colors)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2014

I happened upon these at the cosmetics checkout counter at Walgreen's. I needed a retractable lip liner (I hate sharpening pencils), and since I liked the color selection and they were only $1.99, I figured I had nothing to lose.

I have to say, these liners are the best drugstore find I've ever discovered. They're relatively soft and creamy, easy to use with precision …

Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - longwear gel liner in black mauve

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2010

There's a lot to love about this liner. First of all, there's the color. It's just what it sounds like...a blackened mauve. More specifically, in the pot it looks sort of like a muted, darkened violet/burgundy mixture with some shimmer thrown in for depth. On my eyes, it functions much the way taupe eyeshadow works for most of us...it works with just about every neutral combination …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco - Paris

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2010

This Rouge Coco is the best I've tried. I am a red lipstick addict...I have more than I can count. However, this is truly one of the most flattering, wearable reds I've ever tried, with one of the most comfortable and long-wearing formulas. Paris is a fairly deep blue-based red on me, with just a tiny touch of the pink that others have mentioned. On me, it really is a RED more than …Read more

Treatments (Face) - LUSH - Full of Grace Serum Bar

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/08/2010

This is a very luxurious-feeling serum full of beneficial butters and essential oils that does what it says it will do--namely, calm redness and irritation and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Full of Grace was recommended to me as a supplement to my normal hodgepodge of skincare products now that it is becoming cooler and drier here in Georgia. I bought it along with The …

Eye Shadow - Stila - It Girl Warm Trio 2007

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2010

I, too, got this set from Sephora when they ran their $10 weekly special. It's an amazing deal, and highly recommended.

Lame is a fairly neutral gold shimmer without too much yellow, Chloe is a mid-tone bronze, and of course there's the famous Kitten, a pinkish champagne. All three colors work well together and can be used alone, in pairs, or all three on the lid at once …

Eyes - La Femme - Cake Eyeliner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/16/2010

I picked this cake liner up at Sally's on a whim because it was at the counter as I checked out, on sale for $2.99. I'd never heard of the line and had no idea what I was getting, but I'd been looking for a good black cake liner for a while and figured for the price I had nothing to lose. I bought the black/grey combo.

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. It took …

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/05/2010

I love this product! I don't use it as a moisturizer, but as an intensive moisture mask. I have dry skin, but I sometimes use purifying masks, especially when I have the occasional hormonal breakout. Those masks often leave me dry. I stopped by my Clinique counter for some 7-Day Scrub and happened to ask the SA if they had a good hydrating mask, and she suggested this product...it does say …Read more
