Polishes - OPI - ChicaGo Get A Manicure

5.0

Aug/15/2013

I had no idea this color was discontinued. In fact I found it tonight at CVS and snapped it up. I love the pink that seems to have a blue undertone. It's a sophisticated color but not old lady-ish like some berry colors can look. Will have to buy more online.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara

1.0

Sep/28/2010

Cheap.azz.crap!

The brush is too big to do any type of maneuvering that needs to be done around smaller lashes, and it basically left a clump of mascara in the middle of my lashes. The mascara was flaky, too, although I can't tell if that was because of how poorly the brush deposited the formula, or if the formula is just low-grade. Luckily, it was on sale for $4 and change …

Styling Products - AVEDA - Be Curly Curl Enhancer

May/28/2010

Actually, the bottle I have now was given to me. When it's done, I'm shelling out the cash for a new one. One of the few formulas that has kept my hair curly without drying it out. The white color also absorbs quickly so I'm not taking a lot of time to make sure that my hair has the appearance of residue on it. I still put a shine serum afterward for an extra boost. Smells nicely …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Obagi - Clear

May/15/2010

Junk for me. There were so many raves for this product, so I'm glad it worked for others (seriously, acne scars are a bummer.) For me? All it did was suck all of the moisture out of my skin and left it flaky as hell. Flakes I can take if it eventually revealed better skin. Nah. Waste of cash.

Treatments (Face) - CLINIQUE - Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2010

This is doing a seriously good job of getting rid of the annoying acne "spots" on my cheek. It's only been three weeks and they (about six in a small cluster) are almost gone. It's gradual, so everyday I would think tentatively, "It looks like it's working...". I'm now at a point where it's clear that it's lightening the scars. The product says it …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

4.0

May/03/2010

I've been on the fence about trying this for so long, mainly because of the reviews here (which I do appreciate!). But I got a small bottle from Sephora and I liked it so much, I bought a bigger bottle. It takes off all of my makeup and the best part is that it's just one-step: a plus when I'm exhausted at night. I'm so acne-prone, but no problems with this.

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Geller New York - Barely There Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

Feb/17/2010

Yes, yes, Laura Geller, you rocked on this product. I walked into Sephora with dry, leathery, reddish skin because of some acne/ hyperpigementation treatments I've been using. I wasn't even looking for TM, but it was on clearance and I tried some. Wow...it covered my redness without irritating my already stressed out skin. I also held up well after spraying Evian water on my skin. When …Read more

Other - ULTA - Ulta- whole store

Feb/16/2010

The SAs, for the most part, aren't very helpful and kinda snotty when you ask for help. But what's really janky about Ulta is the way they track "points": 1) If you don't have your card, they "can't" look it up, unlike Sephora where they can look it up on the computer via email. 2) The SAs "don't" have the number of points on your account …Read more

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - The Multiple

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2010

I don't like lipstick, mainly because most are too dry or too glossy***. This Nars Multiple in Malibu is great on my lips because it is neither. It stays on for a long time without making my lips flaky or making them look like I just ate of bucket of fried chicken. I like using EOS balm first (or any balm), then apply, but using w/o balm works for me, too. I also love this as an eyecolor …Read more
