    2.0

    Rimmel London Colour Rush Duo Eyeshadow

    beautiful colors, terrible performance

    Rimmel's Colour Rush Duo Eyeshadow is a classic underachiever. the colors are vivid and relevant. the shimmer looked excellent given that the price was right. but tell that to my stinging eyes. the eyes which have no color on them after application. an application consisting of giant hunks of glitter that looked so nice from the outside of the packaging but now seem to be permanently affixed to my face.

  • CoverGirl SmokyShadowBlast

    really???? i am reading positive reviews for this product, but i just don't get it. cg smokyshadowblast is like vaseline with an uncolored shimmer in it. it is greasy, never sets, and even the darker shades are virtually colorless. one of the worst products i've ever used.

  • Mavala Colorfix

    Mavala Colorfix

    to the above reviewer...

    i would love to know what you are doing because i am getting completely opposite results. using Mavala Colorfix as a top coat on fully dry nails, it takes my nails literally HOURS to dry fully again. i am convinced this product also contributes to polish peeling ( i ALWAYS have and have had this problem - it's like the polish peels similar to that children's polish that's made to peel off). i've gotten no more than three days out of a mani topped with Colorfix, and always get dents (even if product is used in AM) from my hair when i sleep.

  • Zoya Nail Polish
    5.0

    Zoya Nail Polish

    Review subject

    i love everything about these polishes - except the staying power. the colors are the most divine collection of hues and options for glitter/shimmer/matte/gloss/cream are the most extensive of any line. the consistency (depending on polish type) is creamy and thick. The color lasts weeks on my toes (but that could be said of almost any polish at almost any price point). i love that Zoya is a "natural" polish (though i admittedly don't understand how paint can be natural.) the problem is my fingertips. i am using only zoya products base, color, top. but still, the color peels! i am always careful to ensure my nails are properly prepped based on articles here and elsewhere, but of the 3 colors i own, none had lasted more than 3 days before peeling on my fingernails. the only time i can get polish to last longer than this on me is if i go to salon and have them apply an opi product. such a strange dilemma. OH - also. bubbles. i used to have this problem with other polishes then read to not apply near a fan. this worked! but not with zoya. i get bubbles with each color i own. . . . i want to love this product so much. =(

  • Sedu Pro Ionic Ceramic Flat Iron

    Sedu Pro Ionic Ceramic Flat Iron

    the best beauty product...

    ....i have EVER bought. the ceramic tourmaline plates simply glide over my strands like an ice skater on a newly zambonied rink. my hair is perfectly straight in 10 minutes flat - about 20 minutes quicker than any other styling method in my arsenal. my hair is left shiny, soft, and smooth. this is my 2nd sedu (replaced the original after 5 years due to cord breaking in travels) and have had this one over a year. i will never buy another straightener than sedu.

  • Hard Candy Stain & Shine
    8.0

    Hard Candy Stain & Shine

    Nice stain, lovely gloss

    I have this in Piglet is the only true purple stain I use. The gloss is like a clear, vaguely shimmery/pearly (but not overly so) dream and I adore it. The stain is nice, if not a bit watery, but the color is true and it does last a long while. Doubles as a cheek color. Watery consistency, however, ensures that the stain will travel into lip lines, if one has reached the point in their make-upping life that she must be concerned about such things. Gloss looks great on eyelids for a sheer wash of transparent sheen. Stain will attach itself to dry skin on lips, never to be removed again, so be sure to exfoliate lips before use!

  • Vincent Longo Lip & Cheek Gel Stain

    LOVE this one the most (and I have bought and tried about 15 different brands). I only wish there were a natural pink shade, but I use this one every time I want a darker color. My shade of choice: Liquid Kiss. It lasts and lasts, and you can reapply if needed (usually for me, just once a day), even if you, like me, applied gloss over the first application. Works perfectly on cheeks, too. Just melts into the skin. The gel consistency refuses to travel into fine lines around the lips. Ideal! If I could have only one product forever, this is the one!

  • Benefit Posietint
    10.0

    Benefit Posietint

    As good as Longo's stain

    But in a color that works for everyday use! Perfect shade of pink for those who are looking for something not too dark. Like Vincent Longo, the PosieTint's consistency is too thick to travel into fine lip lines (a problem with which you 20-somethings may not have to contend, but with which ladies of a certain age may battle with Benetint or other watery-liquid stains); however, it melts into lips and cheeks creating a perfect wash of color. It also lasts and lasts but can be reapplied throughout the day if needed. Also like Longo, I usually have to reapply only once a day, if at all. I just bought my 2nd bottle and the only complaint is the lovely pink foil on the outside of the bottle rubs off, embedding itself into any and everything it touches! Small price to pay for perfectly pink lips and cheeks. I swear this produce give the appearance of looking 10 years younger with pinchable cheeks and just kissed lips.

  • Lancome Potion of Love Lip Stain

    This is a stain that has a nice (not perfect for my skin, but better than most if you're a white chick with olive skin and dark hair and eyes, looking for a "natural" lip color) color. The marker packaging of this product actually works for a LONG time (I bought mine when it was introduced a couple of years ago and it STILL works!) When the tip starts drying a bit, you can remove and flip it over using the end that goes on the inside of the tube and the stain is very concentrated. Then flip it back over on the next use and it works like the day I bought it. Doesn't last "forever" like some stains, but Lancome is onto something with this product and packaging. I just wish you could still buy it and in more shades.

  • Urban Decay Ink Lip Stain
    2.0

    Urban Decay Ink Lip Stain

    marker dries out quickly

    once it dries out, you can add water to get it working again, but of course color is also diluted. None of these colors work for me either, and while i appreciate the application and consistency of a brand-new, straight from the box marker, once you apply a color that doesn't flatter, it is not so easy to remove or cover.
