Lip Treatments - Murad - Soothing Lip Therapy

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/14/2011

I got a delux sample (3.5g) and I hate it so much. I was about to throw it out but decided to leave a review of it here before I did that.

What I hate most is the smell. I can't take the smell. It seriously smells like some kind of melted medicine. As if that wasn't bad enough, the smell persists on whatever your lips touch- water bottles, cups, mugs, etc. So whenever …

Lotions/ Creams - KORRES Natural Products - Quince Body Butter

3.0

Apr/28/2011

I like the lotion (it moisturizes and does what it promises to do) but I HATE the smell. Seriuously, it smells like Windex. I only use it on the parts of body that are farthest from my nose (like my feet) and I still smell it -_- I won't be buying this again.

Eye Primer - benefit Cosmetics - Stay Don't Stray Eyeshadow Primer

This does not work as an eyeshadow primer. I don't see greater color payoff and it doesn't help eye shadow stick. My shadows stayed for maybe an hour and gone in four. I won't be buying again- I am glad I have the smaller version that came in this set of minis from Sephora. I am going back to my Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion.

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

3.0

Apr/05/2011

I still prefer the original. This has a tint which doesn't show up on my lips. It goes on clear and kind of oily (?) on my lips... reminds me of the Nivea chapstick. It doesn't have the minty smell and feel of the original. Instead it has this unexplainable smell which I don't like at all (in fact, my boyfriend notices when we kiss and is not a fan of the smell either). …Read more

I got a deluxe sample of this in Burt's Bees grab bag. Today was one of those days when you want to change up your routine and try something different so I took this out. Boy was I disappointed.

Smell: i really don't like the smell. it smelled like some cheap cucumber body lotion. the smell lingered quite a bit on my face and it gave me a headache.

Texture: …

Lip Treatments - MAC Cosmetics - Tinted Lip Conditioner - Gentle Coral

This product lasts forever. I wouldn't buy it again just because it will take a long time before I finish this. This is my gripe with some products- I wish there was less product for less the price. I like to couple it with MAC See Sheer for a polished look or to tone down the MAC Morange lipstick.

Sunscreen - Aveeno - Active Naturals Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion SPF 55

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2010

I like that the SPF is so high on this one. I don't know exactly how much this is because I got this as part of some beauty magazine's summer beauty set (I forget which magazine but the set got sold out immediately).

This does not feel heavy under makeup and it does not sting like some sunblocks do. The only thing is that one day I put this on under makeup, get in my …

What is the strobe cream really supposed to be???

Some SAs tell me that this is a moisturizer. Others say "no this is not a moisturizer, it is a primer". While some others tell me that this is to be used as a highlighter :-P

I used to mix this with my foundation when I wanted a glowy look. Now that I have all these other highlighters, I find myself reaching for …

Liquid - CHANEL - Vitalumiere Moisture-Rich Radiance Sunscreen Fluid Makeup SPF 15

Dec/02/2010

I have this in #0,5 in Nude. I think this is the lightest shade they have and this still was sort of dark for my skin (I have light Asian skin). The SA just ended up giving me this color after trying many different shades (and I am not ghostly pale or anything)... weird.

Anyway, this does not have any significant coverage. I have some light freckles and this does not cover them, if …

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Cheek Stain in Flush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2010

This is a great natural looking blush. My only gripe is that they give us less the product (I have had this forever and still have basically the same amount of product remaining) and lower the price. Unless you use this everyday, your daughter could probably inherit it from you :)

It smells like berries and it tints your fingers if you apply with your fingers. I don't like the …
