I will be buying this again. Just one quick sweep and it lasts all day! Perfect neutral pink color. I love the sparkles, but I am a luminous strober/highlighter. Just love it! Lasts forever and takes literally 10 seconds to apply because I use the built-in brush compartment brush. Perfect application every time! Sorry if you don't like sparkle, if you are on the fence but like a glow …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I was looking for a vivid hot pink long wearing matte such as MAC St. Germain. My go-to is the L'Oreal Pro Matte but their color selection is pretty much crap. I grabbed this and a competitor to do a comparison (both on BOGO sales).

Pros: easy and smooth application. Color is true. Lasts a good 8 hours. Feels soft. Smells like marshmallow.

Cons: I felt it should have …

Lotions/ Creams - Avalon Organics - Hand and Body Lotion -Lemon

I am a fickle consumer and rarely buy the same product more than once. I have bought three bottles of this lotion. It is perfect in every way. The lotion is cooling, a little soft and moist and is absorbed quickly. The fragrance is more of an essential oil lemon (which I dinged the Watkins Lemon Hand Cream, smelling of fake lemon frosting). The lotion lasts a long time on my hands and it …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - J. R. Watkins - Lemon Cream Hand Repair Moisturizer

This product was not terrible but I would never re-purchase or recommend. First, the cream is extremely thick. It's hard to rub in, and it tends to stay on the outside of your skin. Second, it smells like the cream inside a lemon creme sandwich cookie (a lemon Oreo). A little bit fake and certainly creamy, but rather wimpy. Coupled with the thick cream feel, you feel as if you are …Read more

On the merits, I would rave about how perfectly this rinses off my skin. Almost instantly. Really really soft skin after that with NO residue. On that alone it should get 5 stars but I really don't love the pump. It's just a cheapo soap pump and it's even a little hard to push.

Let me respond to some of the criticism below and chime in:
1. pump squirts too much …

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Always Amethyst

Good: very nice brush, good liquid-y consistency without being too runny. Very attractive pinkish berry-fuchsia color in the bottle.<br>
<br>
Bad: shows every ridge in my nails, a little too frosty-metallic on for my liking. Also, the color lightened up a little bit on my nail, losing the depth of the berry, and just morphing pink.

I recommend this product for its amazing gold flecks (orange and rose gold) which somehow are able to light through a blackenned purplish base. The color itself very thick and tarlike, yet the flecks still glow. However, the application is perfect, for a big 3 free product. The only reason why I cannot give this a perfect score overall is because it chipped instantly. I used Nailtek II …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Power Shield Extra Protection Top Coat

Jun/29/2010

This review is for Sally Hansen Power Shield Ultra-Protective Top Coat (not "Extra Protection" as the previous reviews indicate). It comes on a pegboard backing and has an angular bubble the product sits in, which is kind of far out and funky. The description of this product had me interested. It says, basically, that the key ingredients (Zirconium, Titanium and Silicone) form a …Read more

Jun/28/2010

It's been a while since I gave a product a bad review, but this is as bad as I've seen in ages. This lovely pink color--pure pastel bubblegum pink (slightly cool/lavender toned) with slight fine silver--did not apply well. It was almost a powdery, non-liquid feel. Very hard to keep wet and even when putting each coat down, therefore, dried rather lumpy and streaky. And I used my …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Jane Cosmetics - nearly foundation SPF 30

Jun/22/2010

So sad to see a low repurchase rate. I really love this TM. I chose the shade "Fair/Clair" and it's SPF 30, oil free. At first I thought the shade may be a tad too yellow, but when you blend it in (over moisturizer, in my case) I found the color was perfectly blended in, with no traces of product. It provided even smooth soft coverage for me. Also it AMAZINGLY concealed my …Read more
