Crème - L'Oreal Paris - roll on true match foundation n4 beige

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/29/2010

Overall, I was really disappointed in this foundation.

Packaging/Application: A sponge roller paired with your standard sized cream foundation. Nice in theory, not in practice. The roller leaves strong streaks when you apply to your face and these streaks are hard to blend out. New out of the package, the sponge already smells old and bad, with no way to change it without buying a new …

Liquid - Almay - Smart Shade Makeup SPF 15

Jun/16/2008

Pros: Matches skintone surprisingly well and has pretty nice coverage. Cons: I have to use a lot more of this to get even coverage than with other brands, it doesn't spread that well. I bought this because it came with a color-match blush, which really isn't any good, too sparkly, weird pigment. I include that only because that's the one reason I bought this over another brand …Read more

Eyeliner - COVERGIRL - Outlast Smoothwear All-Day Eyeliner - Onyx ] [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Jun/16/2008

I borrowed this from a friend for a night out and loved it. Maybe I've just been using cheapo (think Wet N Wild) eyeliner for too long, but this was a breeze to apply. Very smooth, didn't skip and nice pigment. Wore it out for dinner/drinks with the girls and had no problems with smudging or fading, but I try to be really careful about touching my eyes. I imagine any touching would …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nicole by OPI

This pen-style nail polish format is divine for anyone who is messy with their nail polish. I don't know what it is, but standard nail polish I end up with painted fingers, this pen it goes right where it should with minimum clean up. Great selection of colors too. My one complaint is lasting power, one coat will chip off within a day. Obviously, I should be doing more than one and …Read more

Eye Shadow - L'Oreal Paris - HiP Bright Duo - Flare

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2008

The idea behind the HiP line is "High Intensity Pigments". Packaging has the shadows on oneside and a brush compartment on the reverse. Flare coloring is gold and a sort of burn coral (my words).

Both sides are difficult to open, with the brush side being borderline impossible to get open. As for high intensity? Wet and Wild has more pigment than this. The gold shows …

Moisturizers - Dove - Energy Glow Night Cream

Mar/03/2008

I bought this on clearance, so I'm scared it's discontinued, because I love it so much. I was thrilled to find a non-pore clogging night cream that actually did some intense moisturizing. I actually look forward to putting this stuff on because it makes my skin Feel glowy, even if it's not. I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to night cream, but this stuff has made me a …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Suave - Suave Sensitive Skin Fragrance Free

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2007

I bought this because my legs are extremely sensitive, especially after shaving and I was running low on my other fragrance free lotions. Big mistake. I applied this after the shower, where I had only exfoilated, and didn't have time to shave, and I'm so glad I didn't!

As soon as I applied the lotion my skin started stinging and the skin around my hair folicles got …

Pressed Powders - Maybelline New York - PurePowder shine-free finish

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/02/2006

This is probably the worst powder I've ever had. The packaging is dreadful, the powder square is quite small, to get to the mirror you have to lift up the puff (which is nothing more than a cheap piece of spongey cotton) and tilt the mirror in odd directions, because most of the time it's just reflecting the rest of the packaging. After one touch with the puff it revealed uneven …Read more

Jun/02/2006

This stuff is kind of an inbetween tinted moisturizer and foundation. It goes on very light and quick, but doesn't provide any real coverage, just evens out skintone. I bought nude, which was a lot orangier than the nudes I'm used to. It's more expensive than the usual maybelline foundation and there's less of it, so it's not a great deal. I'll be going back to …Read more
