Lips - NIVEA - A Kiss of Recovery SPF 15

Jun/05/2011

I love Nivea lotion so I figured I'd like their lip balm too, but I was wrong. It goes on slick and I like how it doesn't leave a waxy feeling like with some other chapsticks. But for me, it only moisturizes my lips for a little while. I have to reapply about every 10 minutes. I'm a bit disappointed with the packaging too ... looks a bit like a glue stick. I've tried a lot of …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Diamond Strength Fairy Tale Ivory

If there were a lip gloss for nails, this would be it. It's clear, sparkly, and has just a slight touch of champagne color. Since the color and glitter combo is so forgiving, the application is easy even if your a nail polish newbie like me. I really like this color for the summer, but you could probably use it any season, for any occasion. Would definitely buy again!

I'm very surprised by this product. I usually don't like Juicy Couture things, but this is an exception. It smells fun, flirty, and sophisticated all at the same time. I tried this on at Sephora and the scent lasted me the entire day until I showered. Can't wait to finish up all my other fragrances so I can buy this!

I'm not sure if I got a faulty one, or it's just like that, but mine always seems to spray downward. I put it eye level, and it sprays down to my neck/chest area. Also, it does smell a little different from the original bottle, maybe a tiny bit more alcohol or concentrated but it's not that noticeable. Kinda weird. But this is so convenient and one of the most travel-friendly …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - REVLON - 3 Barrel Jumbo Waver with Ceramic

Apr/29/2010

This has got to be one of the easiest hair styling tools to use (just crimping, not weaving btw)! It doesn't leave my hair frizzy and the waves lasts until I wash my hair. The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't get that hot, so I have to hold it in my hair for a while longer. But for the price, it's not bad at all. I think next time, I might invest in something …Read more

Apr/25/2010

I am guilty of over plucking in the past. Now I am left with thin, sparse eyebrows. This product helped them grow back a tiny bit, but they are definitely more strong. Usually when I wash my face and wipe with a towel, some would fall out but not anymore. It hasn't improved anything for my lashes though. I don't like the brush applicator it comes with because it doesn't really …Read more

Lash Treatments - L'Oreal Paris - Lash Boosting Serum [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/25/2010

After using it for 4 days (only at nighttime), there was a slight difference in the length of my lashes. However, it stopped just about there. It stayed the same length throughout continued use of the product. My lashes are stronger though and do not fall off during makeup removal or when I rub my eyes. My only complaints are that it causes eye boogers and it tends to dry up and leave a white …Read more

While my teeth got noticeably whiter within a week or so of using this toothpaste, I also noticed being more sensitive to cold drinks/foods, and citrus/sour fruits. According to consumer reports, the cons are "very abrasive, tartar-control ingredient might cause sensitivity, contains sodium lauryl sulfate and saccharin ... some dentists warn that toothpastes as abrasive as this one can wear …Read more

Crème - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Tech Foundation

I really wanted to like this, but it made me break out in pimples and large blackheads around the chin and cheek area. A lot of people said they got a dewy finish with this, but it was totally matte on me and I had to use it with bronzer, highlighter, and blush to get some dimension on my face. Also, the sponge that comes with it sucks. I returned it.
