  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    I have to agree with many of the other reviewers in saying that this product is overrated. I have combination skin, and I have little or no acne. This product is of high quality, it has amazing buildable coverage, and definitely looks great. Though it doesn't have a ton of different shades, it matches perfectly. It also lasts all day and for the most part doesn't budge. However, I must say that despite how long this product has been out there, the packaging is terrible, not to mention, it is pricey. For someone as clumsy as I am, the packaging does nothing to help me out when I'm rushing. I also take this stuff with me everywhere, and once you tip it over, all of the powder sits in the top. It's incredibly inconvenient, and also very messy if I'm not careful. The bottom line is, if you don't have the time, acne-prone skin, and/or are on a budget, this product is not for you.

  • Shiseido The Makeup Hydro-Powder Eye Shadow

    I have Shiseido's Hydro-Powder Eye Shadow in blue and gold and the colors are great. For me, the shadow settles in my creases if I don't go over it with with pressed powder or a nude eyeshadow. I found that if I don't use enough of it, since it's so light, it will not settle into the fine lines of my skin; the solution I've found is to layer the shadow on - it also helps to give a brighter color. Sometimes I use them as a eyeliner, too. I don't think it's worth the $23 because there are better cream shadows out there. But the colors are nice.

  • MAC Studio Stick SPF 15

    I did not like this product. It gives medium coverage but it lays really heavy on my skin, like full coverage foundation would. I have freckles, and because the foundation doesn't fully cover them, it looks like I'm wearing heavy makeup.

  • Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo

    Garnier Fructis is a great shampoo, only if you don't use it for a long period of time. After I first switched to Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner, I noticed that my hair felt lighter because it didn't weigh my hair down. However, after a while, I noticed that my hair became kind of stretchy and instead of fortifying my hair and making it stronger, it made my hair more prone to breakage. I do not recommend this shampoo to people will fine hair.

  • Maybelline New York ExpertWear Eye Shadow Duos

    I love Maybelline's Eye Shadow Duo in Indian Summer. It's the perfect brown for the smokey eye. It goes on just great and the shadow doesn't run into my creases. It's long-lasting and the color variety is great.

  • CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows

    This eye shadow is definitely not worth your money. I expected a light shimmer, but instead I got nothing! The light colors do not show whatsoever on my fair skin. The shadow seemed chalky and as much as I tried to layer it on, the shadow just wouldn't show. I do not recommend this at all.

  • Sephora Lacquer Nail Polish

    Sephora Lacquer Nail Polish

    Good polish, bad price

    This nail polish is great. It's super shiny and chip-proof as it is advertises and it comes in a nice variety of colors. But for such a compact little bottle, but it is not worth the price. These nail polishes should not be kept for very long because some of the colors separate into oil and clumpy color. I would rather buy drugstore nail polish with equal quality, a greater quantity, and a cheaper price.

  • Bourjois Yes To Volume

    Bourjois Yes To Volume

    Yes to Yes To Volume!

    Bourjois's Yes To Volume mascara is great, especially in purple :)! The mascara goes on super smooth and NEVER EVER clumps. The buildable volume that this product claims is unlike any other. You definitely get volume with this product, but you only get a moderate amount of lengthening. Nevertheless, with this product my short lashes look slightly longer but definitely fuller and far from clumpy.

  • Shiseido White Lucent Concentrated Brightening Serum

    This brightening serum is definitely effective. Even though I used it inconsistently, often using it only once a day instead of the recommended two times a day, I saw results usually in a week or two. Usually when I tan too much, I use the brightening serum and after a week of (inconsistent) usage, I return to my original skin tone.

  • Shiseido Whitess W Intensive Skin Brightener

    Shiseido Whitess W Intensive Skin Brightener is awesome. Even though the recommended usage is twice a day with noticeable results after 2 or 3 months, my freckles had lightened noticeably after one month and I often only used it once a day (because I usually forgot). Had I used it twice a day, my freckles probably would have been way lighter than it had already been. Shiseido has another whitening product in its White Lucent line and is $10 cheaper and so far seems to me very similar in its effectiveness.
