This This This..This mascara is ahhhh-mazing!!!! I never thought I would find a mascara that #1-lengthened without creating 4 little eyelashes #2- gave volume without clumping #3-held curl to my stick-straight lashes #4-didn't smudge or flake #5-gives BAM to my non-existent lower lashes. The brush & the formula are exactly what I've been looking for. The little bristles on the …Read more

Mascara - Sephora Collection - Lashcraft

I got a sample of this in my February Play box. Attention ladies...we have a winner!!!! While I'm not a fan of the packaging of the sample, the wand is way to short to be able to apply it properly, I'm gonna let that slide because what this does for my lashes exceeds that. I have short, straight, determined not to hold a curl lashes. This mascara not only gives them volume, but it …Read more

I got a sample of this in my February Play box in the color Bound. For me, it's the perfect rosey pink. I'm not a fan of the 'matte' lipstick craze that has overtaken everyone. At 47 yrs old, matte lips are not a look I need to attempt. But while the finish of this is matte, it's not a flat matte...does that make sense???? In my mind it does....It goes on smoothly …Read more

That's it...I give up. This one's going back. Before buying this foundation, I did my research. I understand that it is a highly pigmented foundation, that it is made with carnauba wax. I understand that the application is different than other foundations. But no matter how I apply it..whether fingers, brush, sponge (wet or dry)....it looks like crap! Settles into my pores almost …Read more

Ohhhhh Milani please make a waterproof version of this???? Pretty please with sugar on top???????

Picked up a tube at CVS while on a retail therapy binge after a crappy day at work. When I opened it I was very intrigued by the brush - curved, plastic with long & short spikey bristles. Not normally the kind of brush I would use in a mascara (Tarte Lights Camera Lashes is more my …

Ladies I think we have a winner here!!!!!! I had all but given up hope in finding a foundation that works for me, but 'lo & behold...along comes Fiona Stiles Matte finish foundation.

After seeing ItsKirsten on YouTube give a brief review of this, I knew I had to try it. Went to Ulta, was torn between shades 03 Warm Sand & 04 Natural Beige. 03 was too light & 04 just …

When I seen this on the bottom shelf of the end cap at my local HEB, I squealed. Yes, out loud. People looked at me, I'm not ashamed. I decided on the one with the pink cap. When I got home, I figured no better time than now to give it shot.

Full face makeup, after about a 10 hour day...took about 5 cotton pads to remove everything (except mascara I use Vit E oil for that) …

Would I repurchase? You bet your shiny hiney!

Loooooove it! Does exactly what I want/need an eye cream to do. I mean, come on...I'm 45...yes I have lines, yes I have wrinkles...big deal. All I asked for was an eye cream that: I could find in the drugstore, that I didn't have to take out a bank loan/donate a kidney to afford, that would hydrate my under eye area …

Liquid - RIMMEL - Clean Finish Matte Foundation

Sep/02/2014

I bought this foundation after seeing a review on YouTube. I have fallen in love with the matte mousse foundation from Rimmel and thought I would give this a shot since I was almost out of that.

This product has a very strange consistency. It's not liquid, it's not mousse, it's more gel like. There is a spatula that you use to 'scoop' the product out. I got …

Why oh why didn't I listen to the reviews on this one?!?!?! This 'stick' of mascara will languish in my 'what were you thinking' drawer because I threw away the receipt. Before I start in on my utter frustration and disappointment, I must say that I do like the color of the tube. But that's where it ends for me.

Big tube, short applicators...ummm CG …
