Eye Shadow - REVLON - ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

I really wanted to love this product, and bought it in the pretty Caramel and Creme Brulee colors. However both are a pain to work with. It applies unevenly and I can't find a way to apply it smoothly with the neat little brush included or my own brushes, even with eyeshadow primer underneath. The texture is rough and tacky, and the glitter is very obvious.

This concealer was recommended to me at Ulta to conceal the grad-school-induced bags under my eyes. It was something of a splurge. I'm a NC35 in MAC shades, and use this is shade "light" so PPP ladies, beware! However, it does a beautiful job of covering up my undereye circles. I use a brush to apply a few strokes of it under each eye and then blend it with my ring finger. I have …Read more

Adorable packaging, and great product!

This blush looks natural on my NC30 skin and really brings out my blue eyes. It lasts through the whole work day and beyond too. And even better, no breakouts!

There's a slight amount of shimmer visible in the pan, but it reads as a barely noticeable glow when applied. The color payoff is much better than the Covergirl, E.L.F, or …

BB Cream - Garnier - SkinActive 5-in-1 Miracle Perfector BB Cream Oil-Free - Light/Medium

I guess I've just had good luck with this product - it's the best foundation for my needs that I've found. I've used it for the past 4 years. My mom gave me the normal-skin kind and I found that it was too highly scented and slipped right off of my face. I bought the combination-oily version on a whim and it has a less creamy finish and a much lighter scent. It doesn't …Read more

My mom bought this for me after seeing it mentioned in a Financial Times article, and I like it pretty well. It's a great moisturizer (my skin feels smooth and bouncy when I wash it off at the end of the day) and doesn't break me out. It doesn't stay matte or anything, but I didn't expect it to. I'm NC25 and I think that's about as light/cool as you can be with this …Read more

Ugh. You get what you pay for with this product. It didn't make my lashes look longer, more defined, or even much darker. It flaked and clumped and made my lashes fall out. Basically, it does every you don't want it to do and nothing that you expect from a mascara. I'm going back to my trusty Covergirl mascara.

I wanted to love this product, but it broke me out out all over my cheeks after four days of using it. It did give a good base for my Almay TLC foundation and kept it significantly more matte throughout the day. I didn't have problems with it balling up as I applied my foundation, as some people have. I just wish it didn't clog my pores so much; as soon as I stopped using it my skin …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm - Caramel Daisy

Jan/26/2013

I have to say, Burt's Bees tinted lip balms are some of my favorite lip products. They add a nice hint of color and shine that fits with my natural makeup look. However, they aren't as moisturizing as Burt's Bees' original minty balm, so if my lips are really chapped I'll put on a layer of that beforehand.
Caramel Daisy is very sheer brown shade that's great …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter

Oct/20/2012

I bought this product just to have another lip balm to put in my other purse, and I like it for different reasons than I love my original Burt's Bee's lip balm. The original gives a wallop of moisture with a matte finish, while the Nourishing Mango one is glossier and not quite as deeply moisturizing, but does the trick when my lips aren't quite as chapped. It's main benefit …Read more

I find myself returning to this after straying to drugstore eye shadows. Great staying power, little/no fallout, lovely color for my blue eyes. My pan is lasting a nice long time - I've had it for a year and haven't hit pan yet! I'm thinking of swallowing the cost and getting more Sephora shadows.
