    MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

    Another great Mac product for Mac lovers

    I bought this for a friend of mine who wears everything MAC, except for their concealer oddly enough. When I asked her about it, she said that she's actually never worn a concealer before. But admitted that the late work nights are leaving noticeable under eye circled. I thought, PERFECT! The first time she used this product she was hooked. I'm sure part of it is her biased opinion of her beloved MAC beauty products, but she swore that she looks years younger with just a few dabs of this concealer under her eyes. I had to admit though, she was right. She looked great with it on. I only wish MAC used better quality and healthier ingredients in their products and didn't conduct animal testing. Other than these two gripes, I'm glad to say I made a friend happy.

  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Body Wash

    I saw this at the store and thought it would be great for my best friend's teenager daughters. I got them the pomegranate and orange scented version though. The packaging is night and bright with a glittery label. A nice little sparkle in a young girl's bathroom I think. Well they absolutely love this stuff. Like me, they like that it's quick rinsing and they claim that they no longer want to wear their perfume and mast the fragrance this body wash leaves on their skin. They liked it so much that now my 43 year old best friend is now using it too! I think I'll get one for myself as well.

  • Stila Eye Shadow Trios

    Stila Eye Shadow Trios

    One of the best eyeshadows ever

    I bought this trio wondering what could be better than my Smashbox eyeshadows. Well, while I still love my Smashbox cosmetics, I have to admit that I really like the Stila trio! Just all around awesomeness. It glides on nice a smoothly, color doesn't fade or morph, and no creases. And I think they did a really good job of matching up just the perfect shades together. A nice mid-tone base, with a shimmery highlight and a darker accent are perfect for every day use. It's easy to layer a bit for a more dramatic evening look too. Definitely worth the price and highly recommended.

  • Clinique Liquid Facial Soap

    Clinique Liquid Facial Soap

    Got my mom back to the Clinique counter

    I got this for my mom who used to use Clinique products for a while but the stopped because she claimed that they started making her break out. Well, later she found it that her skin breaking out had little to do with her skincare and more to do with her changing hormones. (Ouch!) But I digress. Because I'd heard so many good things about this facial wash, I thought I'd reintroduce this as a way for her to ease back into the Clinique world that she loved. She's been using it for a couple of weeks now and she totally loves it. She said it's not too drying, but it does clean her face really well. She also loves the subtle fragrance of the soap. She also mentioned that she likes the fact that she doesn't have to stand there in front of the faucet for five minutes rinsing soap off her face, because this stuff is quick rinsing. She's running out of patience too these days.

  • VMV Hypoallergenics Skintelligent Beauty: Sheer Lip Tint

    I've been looking high and low for a good quality lipstick with natural ingredients, without having been tested on animals or containing animal byproducts. I think I found it! Aside from all the good stuff in this lipstick and the lack of all the bad stuff, the lipstick glides over my lips effortlessly, leaving behind just enough smooth luxurious color. The color lasts a while too, which is more than I can say for a lot of the other natural lipsticks/glosses I've tried. The color stays true as well. The fragrance is nice and subtle too. Also, I thought it was cool that the boxed packaging was designed without the use of any glue; pretty innovative. Would definitely recommend this lipstick to anyone looking for a nice light but even moisturizing color on their lips.

    hissyfit cheek ClockPot

    Not too impressed

    I recently got this blush set as a present so decided to give it a shot a few days ago, and have been trying to make it work for me ever since. First of all, I have to mention that there seems to be way too much packaging material for this product. Not my favorite. The product itself seemed too gimmicky. Having a different set of blushes for every 3-hour-increment seems a bit overkill. Maybe one shade for day another for evening would suffice, but not four sets; not to mention, two different shades in each set. I get that the two different shades in each set are supposed to accentuate different parts of your cheek bones (highlights and shadows), but the shades in each set were to different from each other for a non-makeup-artists like me to master. I ended up with two streaks of colors on my cheeks with little luck at blending. And if you still want to get this product, don't bother with the sponge, It just gives you a streaky look. But that's the other problem: if you decide to use a blush brush, you're going to end up blending the two shades in each set, unless you use a very small blush. The one good thing about this product is that it has very rich pigment, so you only need to use a little bit and have it go a long way. All-in-all, too much of a hassle for me. Sorry.

  • Garnier Fructis Anti-Dandruff Clean & Fresh Shampoo

    My husband has been using Selsun blue for a few years now, at least ever since he decided to buzz his hair real short. Everyone has some amount of dandruff, but it's amazing how much more noticeable it is when your hair is a quarter of an inch in length. His regular shampoo ran out the other day so I decided to get him to try the Garnier anti-dandruff shampoo. He tried it for the first time and really liked it! He was a bit skeptical at first because, as he described it, it smelled too girly. But after his shower, he could only smell a faint clean hint of it without any overpowering lingering perfumes. And maybe it's too soon to tell, but he also liked the fact that he didn't have any dandruff issues either. Yay! A success. Now I'm tempted to use it too, but this shampoo might be a bit strong for my fragile curly hair.

  • Thymes Agave Nectar Body Wash

    Thymes Agave Nectar Body Wash

    Smells sooooo good!

    I used this body wash for the first time and absolutely fell in love with it. It's an all-around awesome product. It produced just enough foam, washed really well, clean rinsing, didn't leave my skin dry but not greasy either, and lastly, the fragrance is totally intoxicating. Also, you only need to use a little bit to lather up your whole body. Simply the best. If only it wasn't so expensive, but you know what they say: Sometimes you have to pay to get what you want. The fragrance is perfect for Spring/Summer. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves smelling irresistible all day.

  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara

    I have used countless mascaras over the years and am constantly looking for the next best thing, especially in the natural/cruelty-free space. I didn't expect a drugstore brand to do such a good job with this idea! The first thing that caught my eye was the tube. Really cute and made of recycled material (definitely a plus) and the wand is recyclable as well (plus plus). I was wondering how it would feel to hold the applicator in my hand though, with it's curvy handle. It wasn't a problem at all, felt nice and natural in my hand. The formula smelled pleasant. Not like roses, but not chemically either. The only thing that kinda spooked me was the size of the big jumbo brush. All I could see was this big ball with spikes coming near my eye. Also, the bristles don't get the small lashes in the inside corner of your eye that well. But besides these two issues, it did a really nice job of separating my lashes and adding length and fullness to them without clumping. I think they really nailed it. If the formula was just a bit smoother and the bristles just a tad longer, I think this would have been my mascara for life!

  • Orly Rich Cremes Permanent Collection

    Orly Rich Cremes Permanent Collection

    Great color and coverage

    I've owned many Orly nail polishes and have really come to trust them with coverage, color and staying power. I just bought a new color in light blue and it's so nice and creamy. It applied very smoothly and dried relatively quickly. I've had it on for a few days now and still no chips or cracks, and the color is still pretty true. The only thing I wish is that Orly used healthier ingredients in its polishes, but perhaps that might compromise on its quality. If a balance could be struck, I would give this nail polish a solid ten!
