Pressed Powders - COVERGIRL - Clean Sensitive Pressed Powder

Decent product (though I can't find a perfect match for my light but cool-toned skin--classic ivory is too pink and too light, and buff beige is more yellow, but just a smidge too dark), but HORRIBLE packaging. The compact breaks at the hinges every single time, long before the product is used up. Despite the packaging issue, I keep buying it because I just can't find a good substitute …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm - Hibiscus

I love the way this product makes my lips feel moisturized and doesn't have a strong, fruity scent. (Too many tinted lip balms are highly scented.) Hibiscus is a great "my lips but better" shade for me--I have fair (light but not pink-toned) skin, and my lips are fairly pink already. This just deepens the color a bit and adds a hint of shine. I am so happy that there is no frost or …Read more

Bought this as a replacement for the same product in Tiger Lily, which had a nice hint of coral. No such luck here--it's basically a light brown, which wasn't flattering with my fair (light but not alabaster) skin. Saved to wear at bedtime. Trying Zinnia as a replacement for the old (and loved) Tiger Lily.

I have fine hair that has moderate curl on a humid day, but I struggle to get any curl definition in cold/less humid weather. I tried this product in the winter, and I got good frizz control and curl definition without crunch. The negative: there is no such thing as second-day hair with this product. I wake up with an undefined mess, and I have to re-wet my hair and add more styling product. I …Read more

I'm not sure if this is the same product another reviewer is talking about--mine came in a shiny silver-colored tube, not a blue one. I was looking for a sheer lip color without shimmer. Check. I was also looking for something that doesn't add a ton of shine. Fail. This product added a slightly coral-tinged shine to my lips. (I bought Coral Peach.) It's basically a lip gloss in a …Read more

I would LOVE to buy this product again, but apparently it's discontinued. It was the perfect nude shade--not too light, not shimmery. Sigh. I'm still on the hunt for a replacement, and that's tough. Matte eye shadow is hard to find (why, oh, why all the shimmer?), and most nude shades are much too light. One lippie off for packaging because the package always cracked and fell apart …Read more

I was looking for a conditioner to combat my suddenly unmanageable hair. (My colorist insists she must use a product that opens up the hair cuticle in order to cover my gray, but it has made my hair strawlike.) This product definitely makes my hair less dry-looking, but I absolutely detest the scent. It smells like the cologne my husband bought on a whim that I had to beg him to throw out …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Aveeno - Positively Radiant CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30

I love the texture of this product. It is just thick enough to provide a bit of coverage without looking cakey. It may look orangey out of the bottle, but it does not look that way on my face. (For me, at least, tinted moisturizer almost always goes on much lighter than it looks right out of the bottle.) I love that it is SPF 30 instead of SPF 15, since I want to wear at least SPF 30 on my face …Read more

Jan/13/2014

I have never purchased this product, but a few stylists have used it on my hair. Even on a dry day, I left the salon looking like a poodle. I could not get home quickly enough to rewash and start over. On more humid days, this stuff turned my fine, frizz-prone hair into a gigantic, frizzy, poofy mess. I looked like a time traveler from the 1980s. I don't know what kind of hair this is suited …Read more

I have very frizzy, fine hair, and this product is very good at controlling frizz and reducing volume. I smooth it on wet hair without scrunching and either air dry or use a diffuser, either way without touching my hair until it's very close to dry. Result: almost straight on top, wavy on the bottom. (My hair is just below chin length with long bangs.) Second day: flat iron on top; maybe wet …Read more
