Liquid - Quo - Age Excellence Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2015

The only con is the price.
After a skin snafu after over aggressive retinol treatment I had dry rough skin. Every foundation accentuated that, except this one. As previous reviewers said, it's yellow based, and moisturizing.

It saved my skin, looks dewey, doesn't break me out, and I recommended it to a friend with genetically very dry skin, and she is a convert as well …

Foundations - RIMMEL - Wake Me Up Foundation

4.0

Dec/12/2013

Purchased in #103 Ivory and #200 Beige his manages to look natural on my skin even though it has a bit of shimmer in it. Unless someone is less than 1 foot away from your face, it is not noticeable, however, gives a great effect.

Texture, excellent. Coverage Medium. Packaging- Pump style (which I love) Breakouts-none (unusual for me)
Only 1 thing would make it better, and …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Lady Gaga - Fame

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/28/2012

Package is great. It's an inoffensive fruity floral like many other celebrity scents, and not particularly well done. It smells like a synthetic scent with nondescript floral and apricot notes If this was ammunition in the feud against Madonna it would fail. Madonna came up with the far more interesting concoction. Something 15 year olds would spray after gym class. Too bad.

BB Cream - Marcelle - BB Cream Beauty Balm

Although similar in look and finish to the estee lauder bb cream, there is one glaring oversight. It has no spf whatsoever. it's fairly easy to concoct a foundation that looks and feels great and doesn't break y ou out if there is zero broad spectrum spf.

Disappointing and unheard of in a bb cream. Garnier at least had some semblance of a token limited spectrum spf 15, but …

Shampoo - Suave - Daily Clarifying Shampoo

5.0

Feb/23/2012

This is the clarifying shampoo I have been looking for all my life. The price point is under 2$. The best part of course is that it does work. Instead of the frizzy mess my fine straight and dyed hair has regained its former non frizzy glory. Every conditioner that stopped working on my hair now works again, and I am very pleased. I can use this every 2 days as my regular shampoo with no …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - salon effects

Was able to apply in under 10 minutes on the first try, and am on day 4 with no chip. Lots of compliments on the leopard print pattern and have survived a lot of hand washing and baby care creams! I'm super impressed with the ease of application and professional look. Going to try more ...they are fast, fun and no fumes around baby !

I have to admit...I scoffed at the eversleek Jlo ads. I thought no sulfates or silicones.. are they just selling me a tube of water??

But my hair was frizzy and dry from a botched at home dye job (which for the record, saving money on salon hair dye visit almost always results in increased shampoo/conditioner/ corrective product to make your hair not like straw -spending) , wary of …

Treatments (Face) - Avon - Reversalist Serum [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/19/2010

I never thought I'd like an avon skincare product and I used to sell it! Mainly because my skin is sensitive, and the only skin care I used was Avene and LRP. Well that changed when I became pregnant and was told not to use retin a or retinol products. I thought ok, why not try avon. They have AHA type products and they're cheap..and my cousin swore by the reversalist serum. The line …Read more

Fragrances - Avon - Bond Girl 007

Nov/05/2008

Yes I'm one avon rep who also generally doesn't like the fragrances. Not one. Except this one. Why might you ask? Well, it reminds me of Narcisso Rodriguez which I love!. A far far less expensive version that I will douse myself with. In fact, I'm very peeved that it didn't come out earlier so I didn't have to buy the spendy versions!! Who am I kidding, I'd …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Avon - MagiX Face Perfector SPF 20

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2008

(Full disclosure, I sell Avon!)

BAD: No UVA protection, BOO, it's not immediately obvious in the brochure so I was unpleasantly suprised by this. Also, strong fragrance, it does disappear but I was put off by this.

GOOD: Does the job. Mattifies, absorbing oil, smooths out skin and reduces the look of pores. I didn't notice cakiness in my makeup, but then again I …
