Here are all my reviews:
  • Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Normal/Dry Skin

    So my local stores only seem to carry the old version without softflex, so that's what I'll be reviewing (not sure it makes that big of a difference). This foundation has a nice consistency, good coverage (especially good at covering my pink cheeks) and lasts all day long. The problem with it is that it has a tendency to settle into the fine lines you never knew you had (especially around the eyes) and pores, and it also has a shimmer to it which you can only notice it in certain lighting, but there are very tiny flecks of glitter all over that bother me.

  • Secret Scent Expressions Clear Gel

    Secret Scent Expressions Clear Gel

    Not a DEodorant, just an odorant

    It doesn't leave white residue, and some of them smell pretty good, but that's about all this deodorant has going for it because other than that it does not do it's job. It definately does not last all day, or even half. I feel like as soon as I get sweaty, it just smells like perfume and arm pits. Thus, it doesn't seem to block odor at all, but only attempts to cover it with a different smell. The sad thing is that I was using this stuff for years, thinking it was just me, or that all deodorants are like that, but oh how wrong I was. After trying Arm and Hammer Essentials Natural Deodorant, I was shocked to find that I could not detect armpit smell at all, not even at the end of the day! Thank goodness. I will never suffer myself to use this stuff again.

    Never using an aluminum deodorant agian!

    I acutally think this deodorant works even better than my secret scent expressions gel deodorant, and I like it way better than tom's deodorant. It doesn't leave residue on your clothes, it has a nice unisex scent to it, it didn't give me a rash (like tom's), and it lasts all day (unlike secret). I'm so glad I found this!

  • Maybelline New York Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Washable Mascara

    I don't know what's up with all these great reviews for this stuff, because it definately did not work for me. It does a good job of finding all the little lashes and defining them without clumping, but on the second day I wore it, I was looking up taking tons of notes in class and It apparently smudged all over my brow bone and I did not realize this until I got home and saw my reflection. I was humiliated! Who knows how long i was walking around looking like a clown! I now frequently check my reflection when wearing this :P

  • CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Corrector

    This stuff is great. I have light translucent skin and this covers the blue/purple veins under my eyes well while also brightening the area just enough to make me look refreshed and awake (even when I'm not ;). It has a nice consistency, not too thin or too thick, but I found it best to use my fingers to apply it as a brush (or at least the cheap ones I have) didn't do the trick. It also does a good job of covering redness and pimples and the jar seems to last forever. I will definatley repurchase this :)

  • T3 Featherweight Professional  Hair Dryer

    T3 Featherweight Professional Hair Dryer

    Goodbye frizzies, Hello gorgeous!

    So I have been using the same ancient metal heated hairdryer practically my whole life, until recently when I decided I needed an upgrade. I had gone to this new hair stylist who made my hair look and feel like silk, but no matter what I did (use the same techniques and products) I could not achieve the same results. I figured the only thing missing in my new routine was a quality hairdryer. So, I did my research and purchased this hairdryer for only $75 on ebay, and omg it is sooo great! My hair was dry in no time, and I even have long thick hair. This hairdryer was definatley the missing link to my routine. Now my hair feels so soft and sleek, the flyaways are finally laid to rest, and may hair looks like silk :)

  • Stila Major Lash Mascara

    Stila Major Lash Mascara

    save your money for something else

    definately not better than a lot of drug store mascaras, but for twice or three times the price. It smudges onto lids if you are looking up a lot and sticks lashes together in clumps if you're not careful.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

    I'm not sure how well this works because after just a few days my face turned red and burned like fire. Then, after I discontinued use, my skin didn't go back to normal until the irritated skin peeled off - yuck.

    Pond's Dry Skin Cream

    old faithful

    i've been using this for the past few years, and probably only gone through 4 containers tops. The stuff lasts forever and a little goes a long way. In the winter I also put it on my knuckles because they tend to get chapped and I also put it on my lips daily to make them super soft. It's not too oily, never breaks me out, and my sensitive combo skin loves it.

  • C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Balm Stick-No Shine

    My mom who works at Bath and Body Works bought this for my bf since its a no shine formula, and after trying it I had to have my own!! This balm is minty and slightly tingly (in a good way), making your lips feel fresh and kissable. It is a very moist formula without being shiny (don't know how they manage that), but this is great because I feel like burts bee's among others don't have enough moisture or staying power for my taste. Only problem is the cost ($7), so try to get it on sale if you can
