    Maybelline New York Define-A-Lash Washable Lengthening Mascara

    I can't believe it won an Allure Editor's Choice Award

    This is one of the worst mascara's I've ever tried. The brush is too flexible...it's hard to get it back into the tube without it bending in any direction. Aside from the brush, this mascara clumps terribly and it seems like the color doesn't get on all my lashes without a few attempts, which causes even worse clumping. I am stunned that the Allure editors like this mascara...yuck.

  • Dove Sensitive Skin Facial cleansing Cloths

    These cloths work up a rich lather and gently clean your skin. There's no strong fragrance, the lather rinses clean and your skin feels soft & smooth afterward. My skin is normal vs. sensitive, but I prefer this formula over the one for normal skin because my skin feels softer afterward.

    bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil

    More color options, please

    This powder is great for oilier skin. It covers up shine and tones down the shimmery effect from using the BE foundation. I wish the oil absorbing factor lasted longer, but most powders don't. I wish there were some darker color options - I have already have light skin and when I apply this, it looks even lighter.

  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    PROS: love the broad-spectrum SPF, soaks in quickly without looking shiny afterward, contains anti-oxidants. CONS: smells like sunscreen - the smell stays with you throughout the day, it's not great under make-up if your skin is at all oily. The smell is the biggest turn-off for me. It's fine for an all-over body sunscreen, but not as a daily face moisturizer, unless you like smelling like sunscreen.

  • Wet n Wild Ultimate Sheer Tinted Moisturizer

    What a find!! This product is great for my combo-oily skin. It blends well, has a good SPF, and a non-greasy texture. It's great under my pressed-powder foundation. My skin doesn't show signs of oily shininess as quickly as it does with other tinted moisturizers. The low price makes it even better!

    Clinique Superfit Makeup

    No better than Revlon ColorStay

    PROS: A little product goes a long way, consistency isn't too runny, blends well. CONS: coverage could be better for skin with discolorations and/or redness, doesn't wear as long as the product claims, color choices are "strange" - hard to find the right match, which is frustrating for a foundation that has semi-expensive price tag. I think Revlon ColorStay foundation is better - better coverage, longer lasting and far less expensive!

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup

    L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup

    Disappointing L'oreal product

    Other than having a decent SPF, I really don't like this foundation. Coverage is minimal to none, it's very runny and after a few hours my face looks like I've put nothing on it. It feels greasy on my skin and it takes a lot of powder to make it "set". I've even tried using it without a moisturizer underneath to see if the coverage would be better, but no luck. I know I didn't get a "defective" bottle of it because I've tried it twice. Skip this foundation and go for a good tinted moisturizer - most of them cover way better than this foundation does. In fact, L'oreal's True Match pressed powder covers better than this!

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Powder

    I love the coverage this powder gives you. I have a very reddish chin and the area is also oily, so no matter how well I cover it during my morning make-up routine, the red starts showing through after a few hours. So, I this powder throughout the day to re-cover the redness. It does a really good job and I don't know of any other pressed powder that offers that kind of coverage without looking cakey. The price is a little high for a drugstore brand, otherwise I'd give it a "10".

  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme

    I use this cream when I'm done styling my hair - right before using hairspray. It gets rid of fly-aways and smooths the surface for a nice shine without being greasy. It isn't meant as a "heavy-duty" de-frizzer - use Frizz-Ease serum for that! I think it's comparable to Frederic Fekkai's Glossing Cream.

  • L'Oreal Paris Translucide Naturally Luminous Loose Powder

    I love this loose powder! It's texture is like "powdered sugar"! It has just a hint of shimmer to a little glow - looks really natural. The coverage is really good considering how light the formulation seems to be. This is the best loose powder I've ever used!
