Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Flavor Crystals Lip Balm Tropical Pineapple

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/07/2017

This is the worst lip balm I've ever tried ( I have the raspberry flavor). I was expecting it to have a similar texture to other Burt's Bees lip balms, and a tint like their other berry or pomegranate lip balms. You get neither with this one. It's dry and hard as a rock. You have to press so hard to deposit any product on your lips, and because of the dry, waxy texture, it pulls …Read more

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Murumuru Butter Bronzer

Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2016

I'm a longtime fan of PF's Mineral Wear bronzer (the one in the metallic blue compact with the wavy pattern). When I went to get a new one and the store was sold out, I decided to give this one a try on the strength of the reviews.

The first thing that hits you when you open the compact is the scent. It's a very strong pina colada / coconut / butter scent, extra heavy …

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Bronzer SPF 30

5.0

Sep/06/2016

This is one of my favorite products ever. For a pressed powder, it is remarkably smooth and silky. There is no obvious shimmer or sparkle in this bronzer, but it's not entirely matte either. It has the slightest hint of satin glow to it that makes your skin look healthier, while looking like it's still bare. It never pulls orange, just imparts a nice sunkissed glow.

I …

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2016

I originally went in to Sephora to buy a new tube of UD Cannonball but the store was all out. I asked the SA to recommend another truly waterproof mascara that would be volumizing as well. I emphasized that it had to be really, really, TRULY waterproof. She said this was the one. I wish I'd trusted the reviews instead, because this is one of the worst mascaras I've ever …Read more

Mascara - Hard Candy - Lash Ink - 4 Day Lash Stain

Oct/05/2015

I'm torn on this mascara. On one hand, it is the ONLY mascara I've ever tried that doesn't smudge AT ALL. Every other mascara, even waterproof formulas, have all left at least faint dark smudges on my lower lids by the end of the day or night. With this mascara, my eye makeup stays pristine for any length of time. It's also super deep black, which I love, and gives great …Read more

Sunscreen - CeraVe - Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50

May/02/2015

Like many of the reviewers below, I have several CeraVe products and bought this thinking I couldn't go wrong. Broad spectrum high SPF protection, lightweight, dries clear, water resistant for 80 minutes, and contains ceramides and niacinamide? Great! Except NOOooooo. Not good at all.

I've tried several times to make this work and have given up. The formula is terrible and I …

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Slide On Pencil - Jet Black

2.0

Apr/01/2015

This liner is not smudgeproof on me, especially when used to tightline my upper lashes. The liner migrates onto my lower lids and makes me look like a racoon. I'm really sad this pencil didn't work for me, because it's so super soft and goes on with absolutely no poking or tugging, and the color is true black.

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo - Blush Scent

3.0

Mar/01/2015

The drugstore was out of the Original and Fresh scented Batiste so I decided to try this one. It's too strongly scented for me. It's a heavy sweet floral scent that doesn't seem to fade at all. If I put it in my hair, I can smell it all day.

As for performance, it makes my dark hair a bit chalky and matte looking. It woks as well as KMS Hairplay in my super fine, long …

Styling Products - Davines - No. 14 Sea Salt Primer for Wizards

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/01/2015

I think this is now called "This is a Sea Salt Spray" with slightly different packaging. It's my absolute HG styling product for my baby fine, long, straight hair. It smells delicious (a hint of sweet vanilla), is light enough that it gives my hair some grip and texture without weighing it down in the slightest, and is relatively inexpensive (compare this to Bumble & Bumble …Read more

Conditioner - Moroccanoil - Extra Volume Conditioner

Mar/01/2015

The volume shampoo in this line is my HG, so I use the conditioner to go with it. It's nice and light, while making it easy to detangle my hair, and seems to keep my hair as healthy as can be without weighing it down, but dear god the fragrance! I love the way the shampoo smells, it's so light and fresh, but with the conditioner it's like someone accidentally spilled five times …Read more
