  • bareMinerals Warmth All-Over Face Color

    Like the other products in the BareMinerals starter kit, I'm also disappointed with this product. It's very messy to apply, gets all over everything. And then if you just have a tad too much on your brush, your face will end up looking dirty! I have to apply it so lightly to avoid the dirty face look, that it hardly does anything for me. Not impressed!

  • bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil

    This product does absolutely nothing for me. Tried it on top of the bareMinerals foundation to set the look and control the shine and got no results at all. It was literally like I had applied nothing to my face.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    I have combination skin, so I thought this foundation would have been perfect to control the oil and shine without accentuating my dry spots. Boy was I wrong. Even though I use the mineral veil on top of the foundation, I just can't get that matte look I usually get with a liquid foundation and pressed powder. Not to mention, no matter how many "layers" of coverage I build, it just doesn't seem to give me my desired coverage. I use this foundation with the concealer brush and it will not cover up my dark circles. I purchased the starter kit for $60 and for that price I'm beyond disappointed. Based on the reviews from this site and others, and a recommendation from a friend, I was expecting something great. Oh and not to mention this stuff makes a huge mess with every application. All over my dresser, clothes, hands, other makeup. Not worth the hassle and the extra time it takes to apply. I'll continue my search for a great foundation for combination skin.

  • Boscia Fresh Blotting Linens

    I highly recommend these blotting linens. They are large in size, so one is enough to blot my entire face and they are very absorbent. Also does a great job of attracting the oil, but preserving my makeup. The only downfall is that they are rather expensive, but they come 100 to a pack so they can last a while.

  • Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer

    I love this product in the medium/tan color. It goes on smooth and streak free. I've not had any problems with discoloration around my elbows and knees like I've had with every other self tanning product I've tried, and the overall color is very natural. I also make sure to wash my hands well after applying and I've not noticed any discoloration of my nails or with the palms of my hands. Using gloves is not necessary to apply this product. I don't think the smell is that bad, but it could be better. Once it dries, I don't really notice the smell any more. The only problem I have is that the color is too gradual if you ask me. I had to use for about 5 or 6 days in a row before I had a decent color. And it's a little hard to get the product out of the can. You have to press down really hard to get anything out, making it uncomfortable. But I really would highly recommend this product.

  • Buxom Full-on Lip Polish

    Buxom Full-on Lip Polish

    Makes my lips flake

    I can't use this product. There must be some ingredient in it that I'm allergic to because after wearing it for a few days in a row, my lips become extremely dry and flaky. Like they are chapped and nothing makes them better other than time away from this lipgloss. So for anyone that is sensitive to lip products, I'd stay away from this and I'd recommend the regular Bare Escentuals lip glosses, which are 100% natural.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

    I was a huge Lash Blast Volume fan so when I saw this I thought it must be even extra special since it promises both volume AND length. Boy was I disappointed. This product falls sort in delivering both things it promises. The Lash Blast Volume product offers more lengthening than this product did, even though that's not one of it's claims. So I'll be sticking with that from now on when I'm in the market for a Cover Girl mascara.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara Black

    I'm astonished to see all of the bad reviews this mascara has received! It's truly my new favorite mascara of all times! Previously I was in love with Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume, but this has replaced that. Gives my lashes great length and volume without clumps. The only complaint I have is that the applicator itself is very lightweight and almost cheap feeling. So it took me a while to get used to applying this mascara. Had to use a very delicate hand when applying, or I'd end up with mascara on my eyelid. I think adding a little weight to the applicator would do this product some good when it comes to the application.

  • Maybelline New York Fit Me! Pressed Powder

    I was looking for a new powder and didn't have a lot of money to spend. It does a good job of covering, goes on smooth over my foundation and the color I picked did seem to match my skin tone well. I just can't give it that high of a rating because the applicator they give you with this powder is beyond cheap. More like something you'd expect to find with a Wet N' Wild compact. They need to upgrade their sponge, poof, whatever you want to call it, and then I'd be more willing to give this product a higher rating. With a better tool this powder gives you better coverage and goes on better.

  • Simone Chickenbone Chicken Poop Lip Balm

    After developing an allergy to some ingredient found in chapsticks, lipsticks and lipglosses (still yet to be determined what it is), I was on the search for an all natural lip balm that would not irritate my lips. Even Burt's Bees, which is supposed to be all natural, gave me a reaction. When I came across this product I thought I'd give it a try, since it only contained a few ingredients and they all were really natural. I could pronounce them all! I'm very happy to have found this product. I've been using it for a couple months now and have had no problems. It's the only thing I can use to sooth my chapped lips that will not cause an allergic reaction and make the problem worse! I also love the taste and smell. I highly recommend! It's also funny to see people's reactions when I pull this out of my purse and apply. :)
