Here are all my reviews:
  • It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil

    This product gives new meaning to the term "eyebrow pencil." The formula actually contains a patent-pending formula containing Saw Palmetto, Biotin, Lecithin, Grape Seed Extract, and Vitamin C to encourage the growth of new brows while the color works to enhance and perfect your own natural hair. Use gentle, feather-like strokes for light brows or to make a subtle difference. Additional pressure adds pigment, emphasis, and shape. A bristled brush allows you to smooth the results--no pencil-look here! This definitely was my go-to brow product until I discovered "Divaderme," discussed in my own blog. However, I still keep this handy; it's an incredible eye enhancer.

  • Sephora Colorful Pro Eyeshadow Palette

    Sephora Colorful Pro Eyeshadow Palette

    Not Even for Beginners, Let Alone Professionals!

    The packaging for this shadow intrigued me. I did not choose a palette with glitter; rather, I selected a range of browns, from light taupe to chocolate. The pigment was so poor that there was little difference between taupe and the deepest shade. There are Sephora brand products I truly enjoy. Unfortunately, this is one to avoid.

  • Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara

    "Full and Soft" created no spectacular look in the length of my lashes. This is a great staple mascara with soft, buildable coverage to add volume and length. It resists clumping and stays put a long time. I love it!

  • N.V. Perricone Perricone MD Cold Plasma Sub-D

    Perricone's "Cold Plasma" has been one of the very few things to cause a noticeable change in some sagging skin around my neck. Pricey? Yes! Worth it? Absolutely, if you find neck wrinkles even more annoying than creeping lines on your face, as I do.

  • Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing Multi-Lights

    If you are coloring your hair because you believe it will improve the condition, you're wrong. Ammonia and/or peroxide damage the cuticle. Initially your hair will feel amazing, but that is very short-lived. I have used this brand (now replaced by their oil-infused color, I believe) to cover unwanted gray. It doesn't do a great job. I've followed directions to the letter and find myself having to color more often than desired. Fortunately, it is one of the lesser-damaging products available.

  • Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara
    8.0

    Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara

    Not Deserving of the "Star" Name

    Yes, this mascara is pliable, allowing you to build coverage. It adds volume and defines lashes. But I have a terrible time with it crumbling on my bottom lashes--less than two hours after applied. My bottom lashes are extremely long but colorless and need to be highlighted. With a little reformulation, I would give this a "10!"

  • Korres Lip Butter

    Korres Lip Butter

    FLATTERING COLOR FOR EVERY WOMAN

    I received this as part of a Korres kit from Sephora. I was struck by the sheer (bad pun intended) beauty of the shade. It is completely wearable and flattering for women of all complexions. It imparts a lovely (and comfortable) shine, with no tacky feel.

  • Nars Blush

    Nars Blush

    What Am I Missing?

    I have more cosmetics than I care to admit. I've tried more blushes than most department stores or drugstores carry. And Nars blush doesn't impress me. It's a wearable shade, but didn't bring about the excitement I expected. There are many more I'd chose over this.

    Benefit Some-Kind-A Gorgeous

    Shame on You, Benefit!

    I thought I couldn't go wrong with this, but it did nothing. The texture was too thick, yet areas of uneven skintone were still not perfected. Found little to like about this but the name.

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

    I am a lover of nearly all things Tarte, but I fell hard for this blush when I first tried it in "Dollface." The tender shade left me with a delicate flush of color. Tarte's formula is easy to blend, but then it stays put through long days and heat and humidity. There is no "telltale" powder line of demarcation which seems inevitable with some other blushes. I am now collecting a plethora of lovely shades . . .
