  • Bare Escentuals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick

    This creamy lipstick glides on smoothly to impart a very nice color and moisture. There are several colors from which to choose. If my eyes could see small print, I could tell you the color I bought, but it is a red/orange, perfect for a summer look. (I buy lipsticks by the color, not the name or number.) I am very pleased with this lipstick because of its high quality and is better than my usual brands...Too Faced and Calvin Klein. This has much more moisture than any other brand I've tried. I highly recommend this.

  • Bare Escentuals SPF 20 Concealer
    7.0

    Bare Escentuals SPF 20 Concealer

    NOT FOR UNDER EYE CIRCLES

    This cream mineral product is fine for covering up blemishes, scars, pimples and other flaws or imperfections. etc. However, there simply isn't enough color to cover under eye circles, the major feature I look for in a concealer. However, by applying it all over my face before foundation, it did even out my skin tone and provided a good blank slate for application of the rest of my makeup. I recommend it if you want that effect I described. But, if not, and you have dark under eye circles, don't purchase it.

  • Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil
    10.0

    Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil

    PRODUCES A LUMINOUS FACE!

    I received this in a starter kit. It is a mineral powder, but is translucent because that is what it is opposed to do...impart luminosity without covering up. I applied the mineral foundation with a brush and applied this on top, all over my face. I put a small amount on a brush, tapped off the excess, and gently brushed on my face. My face was illuminated, as if from within. It is not a traditional powder to use over foundation. When I ran out of the foundation powder, I bought a great liquid foundation from Estee Lauder. I used Mineral Veil over it, and still achieved the luminosity without looking fake, caky, or changing the quality and color of the makeup. This should be used all over the face, not just as a highlighter above the cheekbones. I highly recommend this look.

  • NuFace Carol Cole Conductivity Gel
    1.0

    NuFace Carol Cole Conductivity Gel

    THE WORST CONDUCTIVITY GEL

    I thought this would be a good gel for my NuFace Sculpting Device since it is made by the manufacturer. However, it is thick and dries up before I finish the procedure with the device. I apply it to small area, and use the machine in that area. But even while it is on a small area, it dries, and I have to keep applying more. This makes no sense. (Or maybe t does to the manufacturer.) I use more and more of the product so much so that a tube lasted 3 days! I watched many videos about the NuFace Facial Sculpting Device, and everyone recommended using gel from the Dollar Tree because you need a gel for the current to pass through, and it is not as thick, and hey, it's only $1.00 for 5 ounces. This product is too expensive and not efficient. I do not recommend this product.

  • Gillette Venus & Olay Razor
    1.0

    Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

    THE WORST RAZOR!

    I thought the concept of combining Olay moisturizer with a razor was a good one; however it failed miserably. There are 2 trays of Olay product on each end of the razor head. I felt no moisture when or after using the razor. Further, the razor head bends way too much. I suppose it was designed to follow the contour of one's legs. but, no one's legs have that much contour. I found it very difficult to manipulate because of that bad feature. And, finally, it does not give a close shave. I was left with stubble with a brand new razor! After 3 passes, the stubble remained. This is a product with good intentions, but is worse than the disposable razors that at least give a clean shave. I do not recommend this product.

    Benefit The Porefessional

    No More Pores!

    This is an incredible primer. It has a slight nude color, glides on smoothly, and really does hide pores and other imperfections as well as even out skin tone. I could not believe how beautiful my Too Faced liquid makeup looks.

  • Benefit Play Sticks
    2.0

    Benefit Play Sticks

    Like it in the Store, But Not at Home

    When I sampled this makeup, I already had foundation on. That was my first mistake. It looked great when I tested it at Ulta. It evened out my skin tone and hid lines and flaws, including dark spots. However, it felt like I had too much makeup on my face. When I used it alone at home on a clean face, there was little coverage and it did not hide the flaws as it did when I had foundation on my face. I decided I didn't want to wear 2 foundations, so I returned it.

  • NYX Cosmetics HD Eye Shadow Base

    NYX Cosmetics HD Eye Shadow Base

    Great at a Good Price

    I love NYX cosmetics because they are comparable to the more expensive prestige brands, like Too Faced and Benefit. I have red lids, and I apply this to my lids, and the redness is gone, and eyeshadows stay put. For the money, this is a great product. I suggest checking out the entire NYX line of cosmetics.

  • Benefit Instant Brow Pencil
    10.0

    Benefit Instant Brow Pencil

    One of the Best Eyebrow Pencils

    I had my brows shaped at ULTA. Rather than using powder, the cosmetologist used this pencil to draw my sparse, invisible brows. What a difference! I had been using Brow Envy, a powder, but the pencil actually created eyebrows that really frame my eyes. The pencil is soft enough so the effect is not harsh. I highly recommend this product.

  • Benefit High Brow
    10.0

    Benefit High Brow

    A Good Highlighter

    This pencil is really good for highlighting the area under the brows. All it takes to achieve a natural highlight is a thin line drawn under the brow, and then blend it by tapping it to spread it out. This really opens your eyes and draws attention to that area, which enhances anyone's face. I highly recommend this product.
