Here are all my reviews:
  • Patricia Wexler M.D. Universal Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30

    I gave an honest effort to like this moisturizer, but it is greasy and makes my eyes swell! I have seen pictures of beautiful Dr Wexler and hoped that I'd have skin like hers, but alas... this cream won't do it!

  • RoC RETINOL CORREXION Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

    The research I've been doing seems to show that retinol and retin-a are the true anti-aging products. This is a reasonable way to try it out, although the active ingredient will take longer to work than its prescription counterpart.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    I have used this mascara and found it to be too dry. Not only is it drying to the lashes, but it dries out in the tube too. I can't figure out what the fuss is about this product.

  • L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Original Mascara

    I have been looking for the Holy Grail of mascaras. I have tried Dior, Too Faced, maybeline and Guerlain, but this is the one for the blackest black and length. The brush is similar to the new one by Lancome (I think L'Oreal and Lancome are sister companies). I don't agree with the reviewers that have problems with it. Simply swipe from base to end in a long sweep and you have rich black long lashes. It does not curl mine. (nothing does!)

  • Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

    This eyeliner looks super when you first buy it but it dries out and then is hard to apply.

  • Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo

    Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo

    Aveda products rock!

    I have used Sap Moss and Color Conserve by Aveda and have found them to be excellent products. I was not willing to change from Color Conserve to Smooth Infusion, but the Aveda rep told me that this product also helps conserve hair color. I am not convinced of that claim, because I feel like my highlighted hair has gotten lighter while using it, but I do like the smoothness I get. I use it in conjunction with the Style Prep, which has gotten good reviews in Allure. I barely have to iron my hair all week!

  • Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Shine Spray

    Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Shine Spray

    totally different opinion

    I had a totally different experience with this product than the other reviewer. I tried a sample at Sephora and was instantly aware of high shine. I was with a friend when I tried it and she was very impressed with my results and bought it too! I do not notice the scent of jasmine. This morning my hair needed a quick shpritz again. It seems to deepen and intensify colored hair, so if you are a light blonde, you may want to sample it before buying to see what effect it has.

  • Nars Eyeliner Pencil

    Nars Eyeliner Pencil

    didn't care for it

    I think the texture, blendability, and staying power of this product were good, but I tried the Kaliste pencil after reading about it in Elle Magazine ,and found it irritated my eyes and made them itchy. I am only allergic to a few products, but this caused a reaction right away! As a blue eyed brunette it seemed really "extreme" in Kaliste, too. It reminded me of 60's blue eyeshadow!

    Dior Crayon Eyeliner

    Great product!

    I recently bought some makeup at the Dior counter for the first time. I am very impressed with the ease of application and staying power. I like that it has its own sharpener and smudging tool included!

  • Aveda Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother

    An aveda consultant suggested I switch from Color Conserve shampoo and conditioner to the Smooth Infusion shampoo and style prep. Allure gave this product an excellent review, so I decided to try it. After my first use I have found it really cuts down on static fly-aways and leaves my hair looking almost ironed. I may have used too much product (two pumps) though, because I am not as satisfied with the shine level.
