Eye Makeup Remover - Yes To - Yes To Cotton Comforting Micellar Cleansing Water

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I’ve tried several micellar waters now...Bioderma, this one, the coconut Yes To version, two of the Garniers, both the Simple ones plus the Simple micellar wipes, Pacifica, etc.

This one’s...okay. It’s better than the Yes To Coconut version at makeup removal, though I don’t wear long-wearing/waterproof formulas so I can only attest to its competence at removing regular …

Lip Treatments - Maybelline New York - Baby Lips Lip Balm

2.0

9 months ago

Oh, Baby Lips. I tried hard to love you. I’ve tried many of these...the clear ‘Quenched’, the Crystal line, the Neon line, ‘Cherry Me’, the bubblegum pink one, the coral orange, the color-changing ‘My Pink’ one...pretty much everything except the medicated line and the peppermint, because I cannot abide menthol or peppermint.
I for one don’t mind the ‘childish’ packaging. Come on. It actually …

Fragrances - TOCCA - Hair Fragrance- Cleopatra

Mm. Well, the previous reviewer had a great idea and is just using this as a ‘sheer’ version of the regular perfume. I use it on my hair and on fabric that I don’t want to take a chance on staining with the higher oil content of the ‘real’ perfume. It’s great.
It IS lighter than the regular one, but not so much that I don’t feel I got value for money. I normally don’t buy hair mists, I …

Lips - Hard Candy - All Glossed Up Hydrating Lip Stain

4.0

11 months ago

I personally love this product even though it’s not a very good stain!
I have purchased ‘Chic’ and ‘Red Minx’...they’re about the same size as the other major drugstore copycats of Clinique Chubby Stick. A fair amount for the price, not like some lipsticks where the actual bullet is awfully shrimpy compared to the case.
These twist up from the bottom, and aren’t self sharpening, though I …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Full Lash Bloom by lashblast

It’s...er, it’s okay. I am a mascara wh%re. I try them ALL. This is a natural-look mascara, which isn’t what I generally want. The numerous reviewers complaining that people shouldn’t downrate this for being natural-look would have a leg to stand on IF the package SAID this was natural-look. But it specifically says things like ‘root to tip volume’ and ‘full separated volume’. Heck, FULL is right …Read more

Candles - Bath & Body Works - Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2018

This candle is glorious. It doesn’t smell like pumpkin, pecans or waffles, really, but it’s still amazing.
It has just that general ‘hot buttery baked goods’ vibe, but I assume they called it pecan waffles because it’s DEFINITELY not a cake or cookie scent. It does have nuttiness, I just don’t know that you could say ‘pecans’ without being prompted.
But if you want that ‘I’m baking …

Candles - Yankee Candles - Dreamy Summer Nights

May/29/2018

My experience with this candle was completely different from the other review.
It IS a very ‘soft’ scent, which is not a demerit. You don’t always want a candle to smell every room in the house up. SOMETIMES I want that, but often I want a candle for a particular room, say the bedroom. I often have a separate candle for relaxing the bedroom, and since it’s going to be lavender-y or …

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Ceridwen's Cauldron

May/23/2018

Love this product; have been through many.

It’s like a palm-sized little dome of cocoa butter with a bottom ‘crust’ of oatmeal and herby stuff. Smells like...well, cocoa butter, lavender, some orangish citrus (orange?tangerine?clementine?IDK) and a small hit of other stuff (toasty oats, sandalwood, maybe frankincense, etc) and it does not bother my tetchy allergies.

LUSH would …

Cleansers - Simple - Cleansing Micellar Water

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/11/2018

Some of the reviewers need to stop with the fearmongering.
I see folks imploring you to stop using this because it contains DANGEROUS ‘toxins’ like sodium chloride. Guys, that’s SALT. Plain salt. Like potassium chloride. Um, potassium is something you need to stay alive. Like salt, it’s not harmful in normal quantities.
Citric acid? Yeah, that’s what’s in oranges and lemons and limes and …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Carbon Black

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/19/2017

I like all the 'Voluminous' mascaras that come in the 'original' style tube...(most of the flankers that come in the fancy tubes are manure even though they are in the Voluminous line). This one, Carbon Black, is decent but not amazing. The original tube Voluminous products are all a decent replica of Diorshow. No, it's not a dupe, meaning it's not exact. But …Read more
