Here are all my reviews:
  • Maybelline New York Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm

    It softens your lips and gives it more color than other lip balms. Also, the packaging is prettier and that helps?

  • Nivea Smooth Sensation

    I have nothing to say that other reviewers have not already said. It leaves my skin soft. The texture is light. I love it. That is all.

  • Arbonne Makeup Primer
    8.0

    Arbonne Makeup Primer

    A word about Arbonne products in general

    From the reviews and from my own experience, I know that this primer performs well, but I have begun to harbor suspicions toward overly glowing reviews toward Arbonne products, many of which have made "best of" lists on this website. Most of them come from newbies, who interestingly have only left few or no other reviews at all. They appear to be a means for consultants to encourage other members to buy their products or become consultants themselves. Knowing the structure of the company, I cannot help but to feel a bit suspicious. I know that this is a bit off-tangent (this product does work well), but I know that many people including me come to this website for unbiased reviews, and these dubious ones are not fair for them. I wonder how the reviews would change if anyone could buy them instead of through "parties," which appear a little um coerced?

  • Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

    Contrary to my expectations, this did not make me break out. I used this under my mineral foundation, and it helped me look more awake and radiant.

  • Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse

    I need to be very careful in selecting foundations, because most of them do not flatter my oily skin. This one worked well. I appreciated that the shade was a near perfect match for my skin color, and made my skin look very polished. As other reviews have suggested, however, it is quite heavy in texture.

  • Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Dior Diorshow Mascara

    $$ but worth it

    I paired this mascara with the primer (which I could not find on this website) and saw some pretty good results. Every morning, I felt happy as my lashes grew prettier with curler, primer, and then the mascara. It works like a department store product. I do not know whether it is worth every penny, but it will make lashes fuller with more volume.

  • Clinique Lash Building Primer
    7.0

    Clinique Lash Building Primer

    Performance proportional to cost

    Considering the relatively low price, I would recommend this product. This was my first eyelash primer and it was critical to my mascara staying onto my lashes from day to night. Accounting for my all-over oily skin, I felt simply thankful that it stayed intact. My loyalties have changed when I tentatively bought a more highly priced primer. From the first application, which lengthened and separated my lashes much better before I even put on mascara, I just knew that it outperformed this Clinique product. In short, this product helps mascara stay on and marginally makes it thicker. More expensive competitors help it stay intact and then some more.

    LORAC AquaPrime Oil-Free Makeup Primer

    Another one bites the dust

    It felt like gel on my fingers and on my face. It did not make me break out, but I thought primers were supposed to make foundation look better? It did not.

  • Stila One Step Correct

    From the glowing reviews, I see that I am again the only one that didn't see miracles from this amazing product. I simply did not see differences before and after application. I have converted to BB creams since.

  • Rimmel London Lycra Lash Extender Mascara

    First coat made my lashes very long. Second coat made mine so long that it looked unrealistic. It was the most lengthening mascara that I have ever purchased. Two coats would be good for taking pictures so that your lashes would show up. It does what it has promised to do. Unfortunately, I have not seen this product in pharmacies recently, so I would stock up.
