Shampoo - Sally Hershberger - Normal To Thin Hair

1.0

May/14/2012

Terrible product. Left my hair looking limp, feeling heavy, and caused increased hair loss. This has never happened to me before! It was so pronounced that thought it might be a vitamin deficiency or thyroid problem, but it was only after I stopped using this shampoo that my hair returned to normal.

Lotions/ Creams - Shi Kai - Body Lotion

In general, I like this product. I bought it in the Yuzu scent, and it smells delicious. The lotion itself is very light yet moisturizing; not greasy at all. If you need something really heavy duty for dry winter skin, a body butter is probably better, but I'm impressed by how effective this is for the texture. The price is quite good for how much you get in the bottle. I guess at the …Read more

Lip Gloss - Mary Kate and Ashley - ULTRA WET LIP GLOSS - NO WAY

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2007

I admit it was a little embarrassing going into Walmart and buying an MK&A product, but this lip gloss really is great! It looks blood-red in the tube, but goes on much more naturally, giving my pigmented lips a sheer wash of wine red. It's a very healthy look, if that makes sense. As the name states, it is a very wet looking gloss, thin but not runny, and can be built up for a more …Read more

Eye Shadow - bareMinerals - 1980's Glimmer

Jul/06/2007

This is a very pretty shimmery complex gunmetal--there are other shades in this as well, and depending on how heavily you apply it, it can also look silver,silvery purple, or even blue/gray. I like to use colored liners with this shadow, because it tends to take on similarities to whatever shade the liner is, in a chameleon-like manner. Definitely not flat or boring. Applied lightly, it's …Read more

Eyeliner - KANEBO - KATE Gel Eye Liner

I have this in BK-2, which is black with silver sparkles. Sometimes products will look sparkly in the pot/pan, but don't actually show up that way on my face. You can actually see the sparkle in this, which I love. The gel is well-pigmented, easy to apply, and comes with its very own cute little pointed brush, which works surprisingly well (I'm deeply suspicious of the brushes that …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam Lipstick - V

Jul/06/2007

This is a pale pinkish brown lipstick infused with gold shimmer--emphasis on the pink and shimmery. I'm a cool/neutral PPP brunette, and on my fairly well pigmented lips, this shade looked frosty and washed me out. On the positive side, like all MAC lipsticks it had good staying power, felt pleasant on my lips (not too dry or greasy), and had that lovely vanilla scent. However, I think …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Rosemary and Thyme eye kohl

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2007

I always thought kohls were supposed to be soft and easily applied, but have found MAC's kohls to be anything but. In every instance, I have had to drag the liner back and forth several times for any color payoff, and Rosemary & Thyme is no exception. In fact, it may be even worse, since it's already a light color (shimmery pale olive green). The shade is extremely flattering to …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Violet Underground kohl

If you're looking for a soft/smudgy violet liner, which I assume is why you're reading the reviews for this item, please do yourself a favor and don't go chasing all over creation for Violet Underground. Simply buy Laura Mercier's Purple Sapphire Kohl liner. It is much softer and easier to use than Violet Underground, which I had to drag back and forth over my eyelid for any …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Barbie-Pearl Blossom

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2007

I own several Beauty Powders, and this is my least favorite. I'm a cool/neutral PPP brunette, and can usually pull off blushes that are quite cool, but this just seemed unnatural looking and unflattering. It wasn't quite pigmented enough to be a blush, but was a bit too dark to be a highlighter. It has a pearl finish, as the name implies, but unlike some of the other beauty powders …Read more

Deodorants - Dove - Ultimate Clear Sensitive Skin Deodorant

May/20/2007

I read a lot of praise for this deodorant on the boards, so thought I'd try it, since I'm not really loyal to any one brand. The ads hype the fact that it won't leave residue on your clothes--ha! It certainly does leave streaks. But then, almost every deodorant does, so I can't really fault it for that. I guess my opinion on this is that it is no better or worse than any …Read more
