BB Cream - Maybelline New York - Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

1.0

Jun/21/2013


I’ve been hearing so much about the wonders of BB creams, I decided to pick this up & give it a try. Sometimes I get tired of having to do a full foundation application, and these supposedly make skin look flawless, but have a no-makeup feel. Om, no. This was a disaster on my oily skin. First off, it felt greasy and heavy. It left a sticky feeling and never felt completely dry, even …

Hair - Macadamia Professional - Deep Repair Masque

This conditioner makes my hair so soft & silky! In the past few months, I've put my hair through the ringer with bleach. First, I didn't use a strong enough bleach to get blond highlights on my dark hair. So I did a second try & finally achieved light caramel highlights. Still not 100% happy, I went to the salon and had them add some actual blond highlights. I love the results …Read more

I absolutely LOVE this eye liner! A few months ago I saw a review about this product on a makeup blog for people with oily skin. Ever since then I haven’t used any other liner.
My skin is crazy oily, and all other liner products smudge and smear within hours of application. This one truly lasts all day long until you take it off with remover. I’ve tried all the big name, expensive …

Foundations - Yves Saint Laurent - Matt Touch Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/27/2012

This is one of the worst foundations I’ve ever tried. It provides absolutely NO coverage at all! Searching for matte foundation online, I purchased it solely based on its name, and the fact that I like YSL eye makeup and lip gloss. I used my regular ‘foundation prep’ routine, and then applied the YSL foundation. It did not even attempt to cover one tiny blemish or freckle. I was in a rush, and …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Bella Bamba [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Jun/15/2011

I absolutely ADORE this product! Many shades of blush don’t work well on my medium, somewhat tan skin. Pink shades often look clownish and deeper maroon shades look too dark and sallow. The Bella Bamba is the perfect blend of coral and gold – it makes my whole face look vibrant and alive.

I purchased it at a yard sale – they were selling the unopened container for only $5 – score! …

Styling Products - Dove - Flexible Hold Hairspray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2011

Yesterday, I was reminded why the Dove Flexible Hold is my favorite hair spray. Here’s the story: I had a hair appointment and purchased a small travel size container of Be Sexy Volume Hair Spray. I got home and was getting ready to go to dinner, used some of my new Be Sexy Spray, and left the house. A little while later, I went to run my fingers through the side of my hair, and I couldn’t …Read more

Loose Powders - Unlisted Brand - Mattify! Loose Powder

5.0

May/26/2011

The Mattify Ultra Powder is my very favorite #1 must have product, because without it, my oily skin looks like it was dipped in olive oil! I know, nasty. But anyways, I’ve already reviewed the Mattify Powder - now I have an update because I bought their tinted oil absorbing powder last week.

The sample was $3, and I got the Fair Skin color. It’s amazing!! Usually I wear liquid makeup …

Lip Gloss - GUERLAIN - Kiss Kiss Gloss

May/26/2011

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss is the best lipgloss ever! I have searched high and low for a quality gloss that would offer shimmery shine, and stay put for more than half an hour. Looks like this is THE ONE!

I bought it from Ebay in Color # 821 (a vibrant pinkish/peachy shade with golden sparkles) for $18. Figured since so many other glosses have failed me, I didn’t want to pay full price …

Styling Products - Living Proof - No Frizz Medium-Coarse hair

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/16/2010

I am amazed at how many people are giving this product negative reviews! Having very thick, somewhat coarse hair, I truly love this item!! I was one of the lucky ones who got to be among the first to try it, because I saw an ad in my Glamour Magazine to email the company for a free trial. After sending the email, I received a free full-sized bottle of the No Frizz for Coarse/Thick hair. I applied …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - The Original Skin Store--Acne Stop

5.0

Jul/16/2010

This is one of my MUST-HAVE, “couldn’t survive without” products!! Ever since I was 12, I’ve been battling acne. Around age 20, I went on Accutane and had about 8 glorious years being acne-free. Then, the breakouts came back and because of the negative effects Accutane can have on the liver, I’ve been trying to battle the acne topically. Around a year ago, I found this advertised on the website …Read more
