Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Lipstick (All Shades)

2.0

Apr/14/2018

I bought this lipstick only after reading somewhere, that this particular lipstick is the 'MAC' (makeup) of all drugstore brands of lipstick.

I got color 450/Romantic Rose.

First off, the formulation was too 'slick' for my taste....not rich or creamy enough to have true staying power. But my biggest complaint??.... the smell!! The lipstick has a very …

Moisturizers - Cetaphil - Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF15

5.0

Sep/14/2017

I think I found my new go-to daily face moisturizer. Everything about this is perfect... the lotion has a nice feeling...rich enough without being heavy...glides on...makes my skin have that glowing, 'plump' moisturized look.

The pump dispenser works nice and smoothly. SPF15, NO fragrance, non-comedogenic. What more could a gal want??!! And this can likely be easily found …

Moisturizers - Avalon Organics - Vitamin C Renewal Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 15

1.0

Aug/10/2015

I like getting skincare products from health food type stores, as I know the products tend to be fragrance-free, no animal testing, and good (natural) ingredients. So I saw this product at my local health food store, and since they didn't have my usual moisturizer with SPF (Earth Science), I decided to try this one.

I saw that most folks here love Avalon's NON-SPF Vitamin C …

Treatments (Eye) - Garnier - SkinActive Clearly Brighter Anti-Puff Eye Roller

3.0

Feb/15/2013


It's a toss up for me as to how much this helps with puffiness. I mean, it's not like I notice any dramatic difference, but I figure it probably helps somewhat...what with the caffeine ingredient (if I recall correctly it does contain caffeine...a known skin-tightener...no?)...and I imagine the cold roller ball helps as well.

My biggest issue with this product is …

Treatments (Face) - Kiehl's - Over-Night Biological Peel

2.0

Feb/09/2012


I got this as a sample. I thought it was quite bad.

First off, the directions say to apply to skin and allow to dry (thereby implying that it WILL dry on the skin). Not only did this product have a very strong ammonia odor (I was imagining that I was apply ammonia-based hair color to my face!)....but the product never fully dries on the skin. It left a semi-moist film on my …

Moisturizers - H2O+ Beauty - sea results line resolution cream SPF 30

Feb/03/2012


Well I'm afraid I have to give a negative review for this product, much as I love H2O's overall product line....

I have sensitive skin insofar as I burn easily and my skin turns red if you so much as tap my skin (Irish). But otherwise, I am generally not allergic to any products. I have never had to avoid any ingredients and can use pretty much any product on my …

Blush - LORAC - Sheer Wash in Sheer Emotion

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2011

The jury is still out for me on this one. One good thing is...I was told that apparently unlike other lines, LORAC's products use real 'pigment'. (Not sure exactly what constitutes pigment but apparently it makes the color more intense and possibly longer lasting.) As a result you only need a smidgen of the product, which means you'll have this same bottle probably for a …Read more

Lips - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Dragon Girl

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2011

As I mention in my other review for a different Velvet Matte lip color (see the color "Damned"), I love these pencils overall. The formulation, the holding power, the matte look etc. The only thing I'll therefore add regarding this color is...it's a nice red color without being too 'in your face' or high maintenance looking, as say a more traditional red lipstick …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Damned

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2011

I love love love NARS lip pencils. First off, I should say that I ALWAYS apply a teeny bit of lipbalm to my lips before applying any kind of color. Just habit I guess.

Anyway, what I love about NARS pencils overall is the formulation. It is only somewhat creamy, but always very matte (which is the look I like). I like these because when you apply them, they can almost look more …

Moisturizers - H2O+ Beauty - Face Oasis Ultra Hydrator

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/30/2011

When I first got this sample I thought 'is this really a moisturizer? It's light blue! Maybe it's a cleanser or something?' But then I realized indeed it was a moisturizer. I thought the color odd but figured I'd give it a try. The texture is strange...feels a bit like a gel. Plus it has little grains in it, which I'd expect in a SCRUB, not a moisturizer! Lastly, it …Read more
