  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Naturale Soft-Focus Mineral Finish

    I've been using this finishing powder and the entire Bare Naturale product line since it first came on the market. Here is how I get the perfect application: place the brush bristle side down into the top of the container, turn the bottle upside down and give it 3-4 quick shakes, upright the bottle, lift the brush then swirl the brush into the top of the bottle to remove excess makeup from the brush. For both the foundation and the powder you really have to buff, buff, buff to blend this in. It may feel/sound like a lot of work but the end results are worth it!

  • Maybelline New York Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm

    I wasn't overly impressed with this lip balm. I purchased "grape vine" and the color is alright for my complexion but I really, really disliked the scent. It made an already cheap product feel juvenile and more like it was designed for a pre-teen than a grown woman. Also, once the initial scent/flavor was gone this balm tasted horrible ... a little like crayons or candle wax. I won't repurchase.

  • Aveeno Nourish + Condition Leave In Treatment

    I have thick, course hair that I flat iron nearly every day. Before discovering Aveeno Nourish + Condition Leave-In Treatment I unsuccessfully used a serum alone to protect my hair from damage. This product has LITERALLY stopped my hair from getting the usual damage I normally get from ironing my hair - split ends, frizz, scorching, etc. Please, Aveeno, please don't ever stop making this leave-in!

  • L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Explosion Carbon Black Mascara

    One of my eyes had lashes that had fallen out. The lashes on that eye were sparse. There was a small bald spot in my lashes where the hairs were tiny and I just couldn't get them coated with mascara using a traditional mascara wand. When I saw this round applicator in the store I snatched it up. The applicator was able to grab the little hairs that the other wands could not and so my bald spot was disguised. My lashes have since grown back (not sure why they fell out to begin with but that's another story) and I have continued to use this product. It does take slightly longer to apply than mascaras with a traditional, straight wand but once you use get used to using it then it's a non-issue. My only complaint is that it does have a little flakiness and when I wear my contacts I have some mild irritation.
