    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    This was first powder foundation experience, but not my last

    I started with the BE mineral foundation but it settled into lines and I felt like it was too thick if I really covered my hyperpigmentation. I have since moved on to similar (but better) mineral foundation... Jane Iredale. I love the other BE products, especially Pure Radiance and True face colors. However, the foundation is not for me.

    Stila Lip Glaze

    Did not like the smell or the feel

    I bought this from a beauty supply store and had heard great things about the brand. I was very disappointed. The smell was the thing that turned me off the most. The texture was sticky and too thick. Threw it away before I used even a quarter of it. I would not recommend this product to any of my girlfriends.

    This is so much fun!!

    I just got this product and it's so fun. It makes my eyes pop and I look more awake. It's easy and effective. A little bit goes a long way and it's smooth texture makes it very blendable. This is one product where you can't go wrong. If you want a more subtle look, I think the champagne color would work better than the white. I'm going to keep it in my purse in case I need a pick me up mid day.

    Good flavor, but doesn't last long

    This has a strong minty flavor and feels only a little bit sticky. The drawback for me is that it doesn't seem to last long. Also, the cap got very sticky after a while. I bought it at the checkout one day... don't think I'll purchase it again.

    Johnson's Softlotion - 24 Hour Moisture

    Does not leave skin soft & smooth

    This lotion left my skin tacky and one of the main ingredients is mineral oil (which doesn't really help the skin). I threw it away before I finished it.

    Will look for something else next time

    This does cover well under my eyes and brightens, but it does settle into my fine lines. Then, it's hard to get it out of my fine lines mid day. I feel like I'm tugging at the skin around my eyes (which I know is a NO NO). I'm going to keep looking.

    Best sunscreen I have EVER used

    Having battled with acne for years (and hyperpigmentation), I need sunscreen but have reacted badly to some. After applying this, there is absolutely no greasy feeling residue. It melts into the skin and I know it's providing the protection I need. I bought this from my dermatologist's office and they know my skin better than anyone. I hope they never stop making this sunscreen!

    Laura Geller Eyebrow Tint and Grooming Gel

    I struggled with this product... it went everywhere

    I went right back to Bare Escentuals brow filler after using this product. Because of the mascara-like consistency, I had a hard time getting the product to go exactly where I wanted it. Each time I used it, I had to clean off areas with a q-tip. The end result did not look natural... it looked like I was wearing brow gel. I will not use this product again.

    Mally Single Eye Shadows

    Not my favorite

    I tried the eyeshadow and it was gone by noon. I love Mally... she's so adorable when doing presentations but the product, unfortunately, was not for me. I want a shadow that lasts ALL day.

    TIGI Hardcore Straightening Irons

    What a difference this makes to my daily routine

    I didn't realize what a difference a great flat iron makes. Before this model, I used one from a beauty supply store made by Helen of Troy. It snagged and pulled my hair constantly. My hairstylist recommended the Bed Head model and I LOVE IT!. It gets hot enough to work very quickly & never snags my hair.
