    Avon Supershock Mascara

    Shockingly Bad

    Yes, this mascara has a huge wand. Does Avon really think that we are going to equate that with huge lashes? I don't. I find the brush unnecessarily large and unwieldly. Regardless, the mascara does an average job of lengthening and thickening my lashes. The real kicker is that, by the end of the day, my lashes are stuck together, giving me the dreaded spider look. Ick.

  • Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Super Rich Body Cream Lay It On Thick

    This cream is very thick and very moisturizing. It has a nice, light, coconut scent. Unfortunately, I find it very greasy. It does not sink in my skin, it just sits there. I worry about it getting all over my clothes. This would be great for someone with extremely dry skin, though.

  • Chanel Exceptionnel De Chanel Intense Volume and Curl Mascara

    I have short, wispy lashes. I NEED to wear mascara. I LOVE mascara. If my house was on fire in the middle of the night, I would stop and put on mascara. I have been wearing the stuff every single day for the last 25 years, so I've tried many brands. But I have to say, this Chanel mascara makes my lashes look better than anything else I've tried. Yes, the brush is different. But I just use it like I would any other "regular" brush. The result is long, voluminous, gorgeous lashes. It really looks like I have double the amount of lashes. The mascara is silky smooth and does not clump, which makes it easy to layer. It doesn't make my lashes brittle and it doesn't flake. I don't think it adds much curl, but I use a curler prior to applying mascara anyway. Really, the only thing that is preventing me from using this mascara every day for the next 25 years is the $28 price tag. Ouch.

  • Patricia Wexler M.D. Intensive 3-in-1 Eye Cream: Lifting, Firming, Anti-Wrinkle Formula

    I initially receieved a very nice sample of this eye cream, and loved it. Although I do have some fine lines around my eyes, my main concern is the dryness. It's hard to find an eye cream that is very hydrating without being too greasy for daytime wear. The consistency of this eye cream is just perfect. So, after I finished my sample, I moved on to another eye cream (being the beauty product junkie that I am). I started to notice that after naps (on the weekend, of course) my eyes looked a horrible, puffy mess. I didn't like the eye cream I was using at the time so I bought the Wexler cream. And guess, what? Now after naps my eyes look fine. I usually never believe product claims, but wow. This cream really does lift and firm. I will definitely repurchase again and again!

  • Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hairspray

    This hairspray has the firmest hold of any hairspray I've tried. Your hair will not move, literally. But it will also feel like straw. Does a good job of keeping the frizzies at bay, so overall it's a decent product.

  • Clairol Nice 'n Easy Perfect 10

    Clairol Nice 'n Easy Perfect 10

    Not quite a perfect 10

    Yes, this product works in only 10 mintues. I love that convenience. The brush-like applicator is also great, as is the color and shine. HOWEVER, about a week after using Perfect 10, the color has faded considerably and my gray patches are noticeable once again. Not so perfect after all!

  • Revlon Age Defying Instant Firming Face Primers with Botafirm

    Thankfully I got this free with purchase... First off, this stuff stinks!! Secondly, it seemed interact with my foundation and made it look orange-y. And third, it did not help my makeup last any longer than normal. Don't bother with this one.

  • Shiseido Eyelash Curler

    The Shiseido eyelash curler really gets to the base of my lashes and curls them nicely. I like my lashes to look super long.I use this everyday.

  • Patricia Wexler M.D. Dermatology MMPi Skin Regenerating Serum

    The comparison to silk is right on! This stuff just glides over my skin so nicely and makes it feel so soft and smooth. For a "serum" I was actually quite surprised at how well this hydrates. I don't need to layer a heavier cream on top. I actually only wear this at night because it might be too heavy for daytime use - in the summer anyway. Has it made my skin flawless? Probably not, but I'm sure my skin is in better shape for using this.

  • Almay One Coat Triple Effect Mascara
    8.0

    Almay One Coat Triple Effect Mascara

    One Coat is all you need!

    This really does a very good job of lengthening and thickening my lashes with just one coat! I am impressed with how dramatic my lashes look. However, I find it hard to apply more than one coat because it is quite a "wet" mascara and it makes my lashes clump together. I'm sure there must be some trick to this but I haven't figured it out yet. I really don't need more than one coat anyway, but some habits are hard to break....
