  • TIGI S-Factor Chic Shine Hairspray
    2.0

    TIGI S-Factor Chic Shine Hairspray

    Doesn't compare to the rest of the S-Factor line

    I really enjoy the conditioner in this line but this hairspray is the worst product out of the line - for that matter, even drugstore hairsprays work better than this. It's heavy, stiff and weighs my long hair down. Nice tropical scent, but that's about it. I'm glad I got it on sale. (Hmmmm, thinking back, there must have been a reason this was on sale!)

  • Avalon Organics Conditioner
    4.0

    Avalon Organics Conditioner

    Not detangling enough for long hair

    I have this in the Awapuhi Mango version. First of all, I didn't smell any mango(which would have been a good thing with me). It smelled more medicinal to me. My ends still seemed dry and coarse after rinsing and blow drying. Not a repurchase.

  • Cle de Peau Beaute La Creme
    9.0

    Cle de Peau Beaute La Creme

    So much moisture!

    I was shocked that this ultra-rich cream didn't break me out. Although the texture is light and airy on the fingertips, it felt a little heavy on my face. Once you feel it on, you'll see what I mean. It applied velvety and smooth on my skin. I could feel the super hydration at once - my skin was drinking it up! This was designed for ALL skin types - and I believe it, because even for my combo/oily/confused skin, it worked. My skin looks more vibrant and healthy. Too bad for the big price tag - 1 star off for that.

  • Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Matte Bronzer
    7.0

    Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Matte Bronzer

    Nice - but it can look overdone

    I think it's easy to overdo it with this one because it appears so natural when you first put it on. If you have a heavy hand - watch out! Once I was trying to build up a darker look and I thought it looked fine indoors...until I looked in my car mirror at a stoplight! I was orange in broad daylight. As long as you keep it to a minimum, this gives a natural, beautiful glow - it's just not buildable to a more intense color.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs And Rosewater

    Was this supposed to do anything special for my skin? It didn't do squat. A spray bottle of water with a few drops of essential oils would work just as well in my opinion. I returned it. This gets some points for the fragrance though. I liked the scent.

  • Almay Liquid Eyeliner
    10.0

    Almay Liquid Eyeliner

    Great beginner liquid liner for pencil users

    8 years ago I stayed away from liquid liners because I was so clumsy at applying it. But then, I found this! The applicator is foolproof - like writing with a felt tip pen! Truth be told, I think this may be the ONE product that convinced me liquid liners can create a neater and more precise line than pencils. Because of this product, I have favored liquid liners ever since (and have become more skilled with other variations). Try it, you won't sorry.

  • Vera Wang Truly Pink Eau de Parfum

    If you like rose notes, get this. On my skin the rose notes come out in a subtle yet noticeable way. It's a very pretty complex floral and I love the complexity. Exactly what popular bridal bouquets smell like - probably what Vera Wang had in mind as inspiration for this!

  • Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer
    5.0

    Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

    Nice hint of color but not moisturizing enough

    I wish I could love this as much as the other reviewers, but I feel it does nothing for my aweful chapped lips - there's no treatment in this. The slight color and shimmer emphasizes the rough texture of my lips. Only after I exfoliate my lips with a wash cloth does it look nice and naturally flushed with this.

  • Burt's Bees Garden Tomato Toner
    8.0

    Burt's Bees Garden Tomato Toner

    Smells wonderful and refreshing

    I'm typically against toners (I prefer softeners - there is a difference!) but this is one toner that seems refreshing and light - i.e., not burning my skin or smelling like alcohol. It smells nothing like tomatoes (a good thing) - it smells like a floral perfume. I'm saving the rest of my bottle for the summer when I'm more oily since it's way to drying for my combo skin in the winter.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder

    The jar comes packed with powder...so beware when opening! Great at concealing blemish redness and doesn't irritate my skin any further than it needs to be. I think this is best used at night though -otherwise it can be chalky.
