    Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    Left white flakes and residue all over my face!

    I was so excited when I picked up this sunscreen, because I am very fair and am religious about wearing sunscreen. I heard so many great things about it, but when I tried it I was very disappointed. I applied it liberally, as I usually do with sunscreen, then put my makeup on and left for work. Later on I noticed that all over my face, especially in my brows and hairline, I could see white residue and flakes. I was so embarrassed! I tried it a few days later on just my arms, but encountered the same problem. I don't know if it's drying my skin out or what, but I really don't like this sunscreen. I think I'm going to return it and go with my trusty Banana Boat.

  • Stila Cherry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain

    I have pale skin and hardly any natural color in my lips, so this product was a godsend! It's easy to apply and stains your lips or cheeks lightly. Then you can layer on more if you want more intense color. I love that I can just wear this with a little bit of lip balm or lip gloss and go! It also smells divine and the color should go with ANY skin tone. This will ALWAYS be in my purse.

    Best long wearing eyeliner, hands down!

    I love, love, LOVE this eyeliner! I will never go back to using pencil again. A lot of people don't "get" how to use or care for this product, so here it is (I used to work for stila so I'm very familiar with how the product works): 1. KEEP THE LID ON TIGHT - this avoids any dryout. I've never had a problem with it drying out or crumbling, but you must understand that keeping the lid on is important b/c of the formulation. It is meant to be a long-wearing formula and meant to dry quickly. 2. Apply with an eyeliner brush (stila's precision eyeliner brush works great). Using a q-tip or your finger just won't cut it if you are trying to create a nice clean line. 3. Create your eye design quickly (within 2 minutes). Again, b/c of the "quick drying" formula, this product doesn't go anywhere after it's dried. It takes about 2 minutes or less to fully dry once you've applied it. If you are creating a smoky eye or a smudged look, do that right after you draw the line on. Once this eyeliner dries it isn't going anywhere until you take it off with remover. That's what I love about it! You don't have to worry about your liner ending up all under your eyes or all over the place. If you take good care of this product, it will last you a long time and you WILL love it! ENJOY!

    Helps Keep Eyeshadow ON!

    I love this eyeshadow base. It really keeps my eyeshadows on all day and keeps them from creasing. I first apply this, then a base shadow color (like stila's Chinois), and then the rest of my eyemakeup. It makes a huge difference and I can't put eyeshadow on without it!

    Stila Eye Shadow Pan

    The best eyeshadow!

    This is the best eyeshadow on the market! I was shocked when I read the review from the editor of this website, b/c I have had nothing but GREAT experiences with this formula. The shadows are so soft, almost creamy and silky and blend effortlessly! If you want them to wear longer or protect against creasing, just use an eyeshadow base (urban decay and benefit have good ones). But the colors and the texture are UNMATCHED. I love being able to create my own color palette with these. Colors that I love: Kitten, Moonlight, Viola, Barefoot, Jezebel.

  • PHYTO Phytocédrat Sebum-Regulating Shampoo With Essential Oil of Lemon

    This shampoo is so nice for oily hair. It's very gentle and cleanses the hair without stripping it and making it feel dry. It smells great too! The only downside would be that it's a little pricey, but it's a high quality item so that is why the price is high.

  • Avon Nurtura Replenishing Cream

    Avon Nurtura Replenishing Cream

    Can't get past the smell

    UGH. The smell alone of this cream is just too much to bear, let alone wear on my face! That is one thing about Avon products that I really dislike. Too much fragrance. Beyond that, the cream is OK - but there are many other out there I'd rather spend money on. It's a little greasy feeling and the ingredients aren't very impressive.

  • Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara

    This mascara is great if you want a really natural look. It coats your lashes very clean and smooth, and keeps them soft. This is not the mascara for you if you want a dramatic look. It doesn't clump and gives a nice finish. Great if for any first-time mascara wearer or for any girl who is afraid of mascara!

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    I don't understand WHY this mascara has won any awards. It does NOTHING for my lashes or anyone I've ever used it on during a job (makeup artist). There are way better mascaras out there. The fact that allure and other magazines talk about this so much makes me lose faith in the beauty/magazine industry. I just don't get it!
