Mascara - RIMMEL - Glam'Eyes

4.0

Nov/29/2009

Overall I like this mascara. I would like it to flake a bit less, it happens towards the end of the day. I like the dark pigment and the formula is nice and smooth, I haven't had many lumps. The brush seems to separate my lashes well, although after 2 weeks of use it feels like it's not as sturdy as I would like. It doesn't seem to irritate my eyes either, although I haven't …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Avalon Organics - Vitamin C Vitality Facial Serum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2009

Still working on a final verdict for this product. So far I like the consistency, not oily and absorbs well. I have been using it at night before my retinol cream and occasionally in the a.m. I hope to see some improvement in the tone and texture of my skin. I can say that it has not caused any breakouts yet, and has a great orangy smell. I've used Avalon's Vitamin C creamy cleanser in …Read more

Treatments (Face) - L'Oreal Paris - Skin Genesis Multi- Layer Cell Strengthening Serum Concentrate

Nov/29/2009

Um, what is this serum supposed to do? From L'Oreal's explanation it strengthens your skin. So it can be... what? I used this steadily for almost two weeks and can say I don't notice any marked improvement in my skin. I break out easily but also have sensitive skin. I thought perhaps this would make my skin more resilient, less likely to break out, maybe even even out my skin tone …Read more

Toners - Boots - Expert Sensitive Gentle Toner

5.0

Nov/29/2009

I would buy this again, and I have! By far the best toner I have purchased in a long, long time. Fragrance free, alcohol free, non-irritating. Really does remove any remaining gunk on your face after cleansing and does not leave it tight, dry or irritated.

Lip Gloss - MILANI - Lip Mixer 703

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2009

I'm going to sing my praises once again for Milani. This lip gloss is no exception to their awesome quality. The 703 color is delicate yet not too sheer. Not too much glitter either. I don't need my lips shining across the room. It is a bit sticky, but you really can't expect a lip gloss not to be. The smell/flavor is like grape candy which sounds like it would be annoying, but …Read more

Foundations - MILANI - Mineral Mousse Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2009

First I will start with my love/hate relationship with foundation in general. I don't really want to HAVE to wear it at all, who does? I want coverage, but it has to look AND feel natural. I don't want to spend a lot of money. As I am getting older there are things I need to cover: small red spider veins near my nose, hereditary dark circles under my eyes and a few small wrinkles here …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 6 for Combination/Oily Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2009

Would buy this again, YES! Purchased this almost 3 weeks ago but wanted to wait to write review. This is THE BEST drugstore foundation and in my experience the best I have used recently from anywhere. I used to hate Revlon, when I was younger tried some foundation, it was too heavy too cakey and felt like an oil slick on my face. Maybe time has changed my perception of how a foundation should …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - MyChelle - Fresh Eyes-serum for dark circles and puffy eyes

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2009

Another disappointment from MyChelle. I have had dark circles under my eyes all my life and while I know that it is hereditary and will never go away completely, I half-expected this serum to at least minimize the darkness and give my eyes a little lift. Nothing. This watery gel doesn't even seem to soften up my little crow's feet. Occasionally I do get a little puffiness but again …Read more

Moisturizers - MyChelle - Oil Free Grapefruit Cream

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2009

Like many MyChelle products, this one failed to impress me. I bought this the end of last summer and have tried to use it intermittently since then. I do have slightly oily, breakout prone sensitive skin. This product didn't do much for any of it. It didn't moisturize any parts that did need moisture, it didn't soak up any oily areas and it certainly didn't prevent any new …Read more

Cleansers - MyChelle - Cranberry Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2009

I sort of do like this product. I have been buying it (versions of the cranberry cleanser) off and on for the past 3 years. I find that if I use it exclusively, it does dry out my skin which then will cause more break outs. I have to be careful and only use it in the mornings or less. I'm not sure if it is effective as it claims to be, but I think it does make my skin feel smoother -- a …Read more
