I bought the smaller 5 ozsize of this for $19, the larger size is 16.9 oz, costs $42 and has a convienent pump to it. I use this every morning and evening after cleansing. I swipe it on gently with a cotton round. I also use it on my neck and my decollette. I'm not sure what's going on with my skin, I have overall normal skin, no real problems except slightly oily t-zone once in a while …Read more

Mascara - AVEDA - Mosscara

Mar/29/2009

Ugh, I actually have to give this a 1....? This is the worst mascara I've ever used. It does absolutely nothing for me, in fact it makes my lashes look shorter, much thinner and barely noticeable. I've even tried using this with a thick primer but it still looks awful. For $15, I expected a lot more. It's worse than any drugstore brand I've ever tried from "back in the …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - Extra Super Lash Mascara

Feb/01/2009

I can't believe I actually bought another drugstore brand mascara after all the bad experiences I've had with other brands, as I'm pretty faithful to Lancome. On a whim, I decided to try this and was quite surprised. My impression is that this is a good basic mascara, but it takes a while to dry. If you put on more than 2 coats it clumps like crazy and looks horrible. However …Read more

This has the same exact scent as the Shampure line which I love (the scent, not the shampoo or conditioner). I have naturally curly, very thick hair. I have tried this several different ways and have found that if I use too much it makes my hair very sticky, if I use not enough then my curls get frizzy and look like crap. If I decide to round brush my hair and blow my hair out straight to give it …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - H2O+ Beauty - Kiwi Cassis Shower and Bath Gel

Jan/11/2009

Got this from the H20 website on a super-duper clearance for $3.99 each. Glad I didn't pay full price. It's a so-so gel with granule type things in it that's supposed to help exfoliate skin. Okay.....whatever....I used this first with a thin washcloth because I wanted to test the exfoliant properties. It barely made suds and the granules just washed away without getting a chance to …Read more

Loose Powders - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Loose Powder Microfinishing Powder

Jul/28/2008

I'm kinda torn about this product. I wish the container were a lot larger so I could get more product on my brush. It seems it gets concentrated to the center of the brush and then I end up with more powder in the first place the brush touches my face. I use Everyday Minerals' Long Handled Kabuki which works great with this powder. I also decided to transfer the powder to the EM large …Read more

Ugh, I actually have to give this a "1"? I have to say the first time I tried this mascara, I thought it was actually pretty decent. The brush seemed to do what it says- no clumping, great separation. But the third time using this, I noticed it was already drying out and starting to clump. Not only that, but try putting on a second coat and your lashes look horrible and gooped up and …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Everyday Minerals - New Flat Top Brush

Apr/23/2008

This is ranking at a tie for #1 for my favorite MMU brush. I also have the EDM long handled kabuki which I just love. I got this flat top in finally and couldn't wait to try it. It's a tiny more dense than the LHK, but I find that it holds a lot more mineral and really gives perfect coverage without as much work as the LHK. Don't get me wrong, I love both brushes, I just notice …Read more

Apr/18/2008

I finally got this, as it had been backordered for several weeks. I have a baby buki from BE that I had used exclusively before, lost it and bought another to replace it and used the new one twice before getting this EDM baby buki. Well, BUH-BYE BE baby buki forever! I will never go near it agin. This EDM baby buki is just as soft as my long handled kabuki, but just a compact little version. …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Benetint

Apr/18/2008

I was very surprised that I actually like this product. I have thin pale lips and I'm forever having to apply lipstick so as not to look like I have cadaver lips. I prefer to go some days with just a semi-sheer lip gloss, but I don't like colored glosses.

I was given a deluxe sample size of the Benetint from Sephora and tried it the very next day. It has more pros than cons …
