Moisturizers - Olay - Complete All Day Moisturizer w/ Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - Normal

Mar/07/2009

I have been using this just about every day since I was 14, as per my mother's instructions. I am almost 19 now and I keep getting compliments on my skin... I have never regretted heeding my mother's orders about Olay Complete w/ SPF 15! On mornings when I'm in a mad rush for school, I sometimes am forced to forego using this completely. On these days, I find that my skin …Read more

Skincare - Body - Bath & Body Works - Cool Citrus Basil Body Cream

Mar/04/2009

Damn you B&BW for discontinuing Cool Citrus Basil! This is my top favorite scent of all time. I always thought I wanted a fresh flowery signature fragrance... but when I picked this up in the store, I immediately knew. THIS. Is going to be It. It was love at first sniff. Cool Citrus Basil smells like an invigorating blend of musk, soap, fresh herbs, and just a tiny hint of citrus. …Read more

Mar/03/2009

I sprayed this on my arm and my nostrils were immediately assaulted by a sharp odor. Hmm...why does this smell so familiar?

AHH.

I know.

It smells like the hairdresser's! You know, chockful of chemicals and the smell of hairspray and dyes and the like. Vanilla Fields smells like a chemical alcohol-based hair product...with a generous layer of powder to …

Fragrances - Coty - jovan white musk

I think it's high time I wrote a review for this product. After reading all the great reviews on Jovan White Musk, I went down to the store after class and grabbed a bottle. It was on sale for $10.99. Great! I went home and sprayed it on my arm.

The first spray made me wrinkle my nose. It smelled exactly like the Off! Bug Spray my family uses on hiking trips, but more …

Feb/06/2008

I have long, layered dark brown hair that is absolutely pin straight. My hair is decently shiny, but I have a few split ends and it's starting to feel a little rough at the ends.

<p> For me, Jojoba oil is a godsend. I purchased the 8oz. Queen Helene Jojoba Oil tube at Sally's Beauty Supply for about $5, I believe. <p>The directions say to use 1oz for each …

Jan/03/2008

I am reviewing CG Clean fragrance-free liquid foundation in 210 Classic Ivory. IMO, it is smooth and blendable. This is a very nice basic no-frills foundation in a small glass bottle. If you are unsure of a foundation, CG Clean fragrance-free is a great, safe bet.
<p>
PRICE: $3.99 at Target or most drugstores.

COLOR: Very suiting to my NC25-30 skin--I have …

Blush - wet n wild - Silk Finish Heather Silk [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/25/2007

Quite possibly my HG blush. I am Asian, with yellow undertones and in between LLL-MMM. Heather Silk is my HG because the color perfectly mimics my natural flush. I just tap it lightly on the surface of the blush (it is VERY pigmented, so a little goes a long way) and swipe it on my cheeks. Immediately, I look healthy and like I've just come back from a run. Heather Silk gives me such a …Read more

Bronzers - wet n wild - Acapulco Glow [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/25/2007

Once again, WnW has scored major points in its favor. This bronzer, like many others have remarked upon, should really be marketed as a highlighter instead. Acapulco Glow is a warm light-champagne powder that has very tiny particles of shimmer. When I examine the compact up close, the texture and shimmer look like those of an MSF (don't quote me on this, because I've only ever seen …Read more

Cleansers - Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Cleanser

Created with Sketch.

Jul/14/2007

I don't understand why this product received so many bad reviews. THIS is the answer to my skincare woes!! With the advent of the summer, my skin has been getting flaky, oily, pimply, AND bumpy. And just months ago, it'd been in pristine condition! For weeks I've been going crazy searching for a product that would clear up my skin. I've tried a new toner, new AHA cream …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Mega Eyes Trio - Midnight Magic

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/06/2007

Midnight Magic is a beautiful eyeshadow trio that features three pigmented shades of shimmery neutrals. The lightest color is a shimmery champagne pink-taupe. It's not nearly light enough to use as a brow highlighter, but the shimmer accentuates cheeks quite nicely (sometimes a brow highlighter is much too white to use on cheeks).

The medium color, a high-shimmer darkish gold …
