Palettes - Pop Beauty - Lid Neon

5.0

Jul/21/2008

I can't go above and beyond as to what the previous reviewer stated about this palette, but I can say that I'd definitely buy this again.<br><br>

Even though the shades look extremely bright and garish, when used together, they complement each other and most any eye color. My brown eyes definitely stand out when I use the last three shades of this palette, the …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2008

I tried this right when it came out at the end of last year, and I am already on my 2nd tube.<br><br>

This is the best mascara of its type with the plastic wands. There are other mascaras of this type like the other Cover Girl ones, Volume and Lash Exact and Max Factor's Volume Couture I think it is? There's one by Maybeliine, but the Lash Blast by Cover Girl is …

Sunscreen - Aveeno - Active Naturals Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion - Face SPF 30

Apr/14/2007

Before I review this product, let me tell you that I am an esthetician who has tried everything, pretty much. That said, I was looking for something that I could just get at the drugstore at a moment's notice that would work for my acne-prone oily hormonal early 30's skin. <br><br>
This product doesn't disappoint. So far, so good. I had a coupon for this (look …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Volume Shocking Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/24/2006

Give this mascara a try! Really!<br><br>

It's got 2 steps to it, a lash primer with a wand that is not unlike the wand in Voluminous, and then a top coat. The wand in the mascara itself is more like a one-sided comb, and it has a gel-like consistency, which means that you have to work quickly.<br><br>

I suspect that many users don't have …

Liquid - Prescriptives - Flawless Skin Total Protection Makeup SPF 15

Oct/01/2006

I was looking for another foundation to supplement my MAC Studio Tech for photos, and my Lorac Satin Makeup for sheer daily wear, and I've found a worthy addition from Prescriptives. <br><br>

I've got Combination skin in the winter, Oily in the summer, and this foundation seems to balance me out very nicely. My only recommendation is that beforehand, you …

Lip Gloss - Bobbi Brown - Aubergine Lip Gloss

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/01/2006

I tried this because a friend gave it to me, and I must say, I am surprisingly pleased.<br><br>

The color is fabulous, as it's a universal berry neutral that would be suitable for about 95% of people out there. The gloss itself isn't terribly sticky, and leaves a nice emollient feeling on the lips.<br><br>

Forget about long-wearing though …

Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - Maxiglide iron

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/16/2006

I took the advice of a previous reviewer and used a coupon at Bed, Bath, Beyond. Without a doubt, this is the easiest hair apparatus that I've ever used!<br><br>

My hair is very treated with color, both permanent and semi-permanent, and has been recovering from a relaxing that I did earlier this year.<br><br>

This iron gets VERY hot, up to 476 …

Treatments (Eye) - La Roche-Posay - Hydraphase eyes

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2006

Hmmm, what can I say about this product? Certainly not the worst, by far, but I'm surprised it's not better, given La Roche Posay's offerings.<br><br>

The product just didn't seem to do anything, it didn't help with puffiness, nor lines, and I could have easily put cucumber slices on my eyes, and that might have been …

Treatments (Eye) - Jan Marini Skin Research - Factor A Eyes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2006

I've been using several products from Jan Marini Skin Research, and I must say, I'm quite impressed.<br><br>


I'd been looking for a new PM eyecream to replace my ROC with retinol, and this product delivers so far. Pricier, but I'll try it if it has both Retinol and Vitamin K in a stable formulation. So far, it's hard to tell if the circles …

Aug/21/2006

SEE my expanded review on this product.

1st initial review: Yes, the price tag is really $160. Yes, the idea sounds farfetched. But you know what? This stuff actually works.<br><br>

Although I've only been using it for a couple of weeks now, I have found that my eyelashes are already a little longer and thicker. I've also been putting it on my …
