  • Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner

    I like Stila's makeup line. Overall the quality and performance are great and worth the money. I bought this eyeliner in Stingray (black). For this eyeliner I have to say I do and I don't like it. Here's the pros and cons on why I feel this way. First the pros: Wonderful and intense colour, long lasting, smudges to soften easily but this must be done quickly. It is waterproof and looks nice throughout the day. Now the cons: As I mentioned this eyeliner has to be smudged to soften quickly. If the eyeliner "sets" any attempt to smudge it will cause it to flake off. Also any mistakes (i.e. a mistake such as leaving a space between liner and lashes so the skin shows) must be done immediately. If you try to apply the eyeliner over top of a line you have already drawn it will "peel" off. Being waterproof it isn't as easily removed as other eyeliners. Use an eyemakeup remover designed for removal of waterproof mascara so you don't have to do any extra rubbing on the eye area. If you like an intense eye with no softening of the line this is an excellent liner for you. If you like a liner that is more softening friendly and working quickly with makeup isn't you, then you may want to try another type of liner.

  • Fake Bake Self-Tanning Lotion
    10.0

    Fake Bake Self-Tanning Lotion

    Great self tanner for most skin tones

    I am an olive skin tone and even though I don't burn I avoid tanning in the sun. This tanner gives my skin a nice golden/bronze glow without looking fake. The smell is not strong or offensive. It applies evenly and blends well but it WILL get on your sheets overnight and on pajamas. No worries, though, because it will wash out without leaving stains. I wear a dark color, light texture, long sleeved top and long pajama pants after applying at night which does help. After showering the next morning the color left behind is nice, even and can be built upon until you reach the desired intensity. I have never experienced any orange or fake tan looking color. It is long lasting and to keep up color I only need to apply once/twice a week. I have seen Fake Bake tanner for fair skin in stores, so anyone who is very fair may want to consider purchasing that instead of the original formula. The included gloves are a plus!

  • Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Powder
    10.0

    Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Powder

    Makes for good touchups

    I love this powder. It's great for touchups and won't leave your skin too powdery or chalky. It actually is invisible, even on my olive skin. Won't cake or splotch when skin oils come through. Gives skin a natural and light matte finish. A handy and quality product to keep in your purse or makeup case.

  • Too Faced Amazing Face Liquid Foundation

    I like this makeup because of its smooth application and even finish. It is easy to blend seamlessly and sets to a lasting finish. It looks well in all lighting from daylight to candlelight. The texture is light. It does not feel heavy or look cakey. I have a few different foundations I keep on hand, depending on what look I am going for. This is one that I would definitely purchase again.

  • Too Faced Smoky Eye Kit

    Too Faced Smoky Eye Kit

    Another Great Kit

    After loving the Naked Eye Palette I decided to try the Smoky Eye Kit when I saw it. Smoky eyes are beautiful but do take time to do well. This kit makes it so easy with instructions and great colors. I use my own eye brushes to get the exact application and blending that I want. The shadows blend well and are long lasting. I do recommend using an eyelid primer before shadow applications. The finished look is classic and intense without being garish or trampy. I am happy with this purchase and would recommend this product.

  • Too Faced Naked Eye Palette

    Too Faced Naked Eye Palette

    Great Idea and Product

    This is a great idea for anyone who wants a natural, everyday look. The tip cards included make it so easy to learn and master the look you want. You can also create your own looks with this kit. I do prefer using my own eye shadow brushes rather than the one that comes with this palette. I would definitely recommend this product to others. Very worthwhile.

  • Smashbox O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Color
    1.0

    Smashbox O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Color

    Garish and not at all practical

    This product had a too filmy texture and was hard to blend no matter how many techniques that were tried. The color was far from natural once it "set". It was like an overly done too bright pink. It looked like clown or costume party blush. The color did not blend well at all. It is not a good product for oily or combination skin. The color seems to be the same on any and every skin tone. Not at all the "custom" color that reacts to your own chemistry. Not a quality or worthwhile product.

  • Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo
    9.0

    Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo

    Works well, pleasant smell

    This product works well to remove the light peach fuzz that many have above their lips. It works just as well for fine hair on the cheeks. There is no harsh or bad chemical smell. The skin guarding balm that is part of the duo prevents burning or stinging. Hair removal is fairly quick and easy.

  • Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum

    I decided to try this when I ran out of my regular eye cream. While my eyes don't have any lack of firmness, I did notice after a few days that my eyes were more vibrant even without concealer. The consistency was nice and it applied well. It didn't make my eyes itchy or irritated in any way. It wasn't greasy and it worked well under makeup. I'd actually buy this again.

    Dr. Bronner's Tea Tree Liquid Soap

    Cleansing and Entertaining

    I just love this soap. It has a fresh peppermint scent and really wakes you up on those groggy mornings. It does not burn or irritate skin. The writing on the bottle is very entertaining and interesting. This is an essential product for me.
