Here are all my reviews:
  • Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation

    For this price point, I was frustrated that I could not get a "perfect" color match for my skin nor smooth, even coverage. I was looking for the portability and quick application features of a powder foundation and the smooth, non-chalky appearance of a liquid foundation. It failed miserably.

  • Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer

    I use this for days when I'm just to rushed to fuss with makeup. It evens out skin and once you set it with loose powder, it's instant "your skin but better". However, since coverage is very minimal you'll have to pair this up with concealor to disguise any blemishes.

    Clinique Anti-Gravity Firming Eye Lift Cream

    Didn't really do anything...

    I'm only in my 30's but I noticed some slight sagging around my mouth area. I wasn't expecting mircales, but at least some minor tightening or lifting around the cheek/jowl area. After finishing the entire jar I acheived nothing. Most Clinique products are very economically priced, but not this one. Save your money.

    Quick fix for bright eyes

    I liked the texture of this pencil and how easy it was to blend into the corners and waterline of my eyes to make them pop. There are similar products out there that do the same thing and this one rates pretty high among the competitors.

    Dove Ultimate Beauty Care Deodorant

    NOT invisible - NOT any better

    I received a free sample in the mail - thank goodness. The first day I tried it I spent 10 minutes cleaning off armpit streaks on my black sweater when I was already late for work. Uggh. Serves me right for trusting marketing claims! It did keep me dry though/odor free - but my other ones do that already.

    OPI Nail Lacquer

    Love the high quality

    OPI polish is one of my fave brands. They don't chip easily, the texture is fluid enough for applying even coats and the color selection is amazing. Right now I'm loving the Russian Navy which is great for the fall/winter nail trends that call for blue/violet based vampy colors.

    StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate

    Overhyped - overpriced!

    Thank goodness I didn't shell out the bucks for this. My sister gave me the rest of her tube after seeing no results (she used for diminishing wrinkles, not stretchmarks). She knew I was anxious to try this out...alas, no results for me either after finishing the tube. Did absolutely nothing. What a hoax.

    Sebastian Whipped Creme

    Great for wavy hair

    I received this product for review and this didn't do anything for my long, straight, course hair (admittedly hard to manage). It felt like it weighed my hair down. However, after giving it away to my sister-in-law, she reports she absolutely LOVES it! She says this product has controled the flyaways on her wavy long thick hair and also kept her hair soft and not crispy. That says alot since she's an absolute hair-care junkie! I rate this 8 stars on behalf of my sister-in-law (for straight haired gals, I wouldn't recommend).

    Makes growing out bangs less painful!

    I really love this stuff! I've been growing out my bangs and they hit right below my eyes. They were a total nightmare to deal with...up until now! This product gives great control and yet is soft enough so that my bangs aren't transformed into hard, crisp daggers that poke into my eyes. I can finally create a nice wispy, "piecey" look by using just a few dabs of this on the bangs and layers around my face. This will last a long time - a little goes a long way.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Parisienne Eau de Parfum Spray

    Although I love most perfumes with rose notes, I have to say, after a few occasions wearing this I noticed too much of an artificial, chemical like smell. After initial application, an artifical sweet rose scent overwhlemed me. After an hour, it evolved into a more woodsy complex fragrance that balanced out the sweetness. I imagine this fragrance was targeted to a younger demographic that the original YSL Paris perfrume didn't appeal to - hence the intense sweet top notes? If the rose notes didn't smell so artificial, YSL may have had a winner in this. However, this smells to me what a perfume might smell like after it's expiration date. A rose past it's prime - but this perfrume gets some points from me because of the nice drydown.
