Hair Treatments - Alfaparf - Semi di Lino Cristalli Liquidi

Feb/09/2014

I guess it just goes to show how differently the same product can work for different people. I have long, fine, blonde hair, but it's thick. I have used lots of different hair serums (Redken, Moroccan Oil, Argan oil etc.) over the last 10 years so I feel like I have a good base for comparison. What i loved about this product was that it was very light and didn't weigh down my hair at …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Achiote Amazonian Clay

Jan/22/2014

I don't have much to add to the other reviews. I have 4 or 5 other colors of this same blush and all of them have great pigmentation and staying power. My skin is super oily and it stays all day (though that may be more of a product of the foundation I wear underneath). This color is gorgeous...I was looking for something in the coral/peach/apricot kind of shade range and Tarte offers a …Read more

Concealers - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

Jul/27/2013

I usually spend a lot of time pouring over reviews of products before I buy them and this product was no different. Sadly, I let some of the bad reviews postpone my purchase for over a year before I decided to take the plunge. Fortunately, Dermstore had a sale to entice me. This is a great product, but I do see why it doesn't work for everyone. The color selection is pretty poor. I …Read more

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

I've been using this product for a couple months now and I really love it. I also use the Revlon Colorstay foundation and I would say that Kat's foundation has it beat on texture and general ease of application, but Revlon wins on transfer resistance and longevity. I don't use a primer and I have very oily skin and this foundation still looks good at the end of a long day. I …Read more

Eyeliner - CLINIQUE - Brush-on Cream Liner Smoke Grey

Jan/05/2013

I will agree with other reviewers that this is the sheerest and least pigmented of all of the Clinique brush-on cream liners (i have all 4) and as a liner I would not repurchase it. HOWEVER, if you have already purchased it, all is not lost because it makes a lovely cream eyeshadow! I apply it just like any other cream shadow and the sheerness, combined with the neutral taupe color make for a …Read more

Aug/14/2012

Edit: I had to quit using this on my face...it was just too drying. My husband had the same experience.

When I first received this product in the mail, I admit that I was too skeptical of it to use it for weeks. I was using the Shea Terra black soap and compared to that product which is like liquid tar, this thin clear amber liquid didn�t look like it could possibly be more …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Cure Natural Aqua Gel

2.0

Jun/07/2012

Edit: I find that I break out after I use this product...not sure why. I think because it leaves a film on my skin. I have to literally scrub the film off of my face which negates the point of a "gentle" exfoliation. I didn't put 2 and 2 together for the longest time, but now that I have, i won't be repurchasing.

This is such a unique and wonderful product. …

Cleansers - Renee Rouleau - Aloe Cleansing Milk

May/21/2012

This product claims to remove makeup but it does no such thing. I have been using it for years and I have no idea why...I guess it just didn't irritate my skin and I thought it was doing something so I just kept reordering. In reality I was just wasting money. I have always used this and followed it up with the AHA/BHA cleanser. Tonight I decided to really test it out so I washed my face …Read more

Concealers - Laura Mercier - Secret Camouflage

Mar/05/2012

This is an amazing concealer, but it is a little tricky to use. I live in Houston where during the �winter� the weather can fluctuate 20 degrees from one day to the next. This helped me understand how best to use this product. Thankfully, I used it for the first time when it was warm and it applied well, giving a thin but completely opaque coverage that looked like my real skin�not a …Read more

Powders - Unlisted Brand - Mattify! Cosmetics - Mattify! Loose Powder for Oily Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2012

This is a review for both the Mattify! Original and the Mattify! Ultra. I tried the Ultra version first since I have very oily skin. I used it as a primer underneath my makeup and as a setting powder over my makeup. I thought it worked very well. It increased the longevity of my makeup, gave a better finish, and helped keep oil under control for hours. Unfortunately, after ONE use my skin …Read more
