    RoC Complete Lift Eye Pen

    The only one that works

    I have tried both Olay Regnerist and Garnier eye rollers, which did nothing to reduce puffiness or lines even with continued usage. This RoC pen worked the first time I used it! - lifted and reduced wrinkles in my upper eyelids, and flattened and smoothed out the sinus trouble bags under my eyes. I even tried the pen on some wrinkly smile lines above my cheeks just under the bags ( wow don't I sound attractive? ) and those are almost completely gone! I can't rave about this product enough!

  • Vaseline Deep Moisture Creamy Formula
    10.0

    Vaseline Deep Moisture Creamy Formula

    the only night cream you need

    I gave up on night creams and moisturizers that break me out or irritate my skin because they contain spf ( I can rant on about spf in makeup that you put on to sit in an office and spf in skin creams you put on before you go to bed, but some people will buy anything, which reminds me of a bridge I would like to sell ). I always thought Vaseline was too sticky and greasy to be usable, even sparingly, but this cream is wonderful. Just a little goes a long way, smooth it on all over your face and go to bed. It's that simple. It absorbs into your skin, won't clog pores, and soothes any irritation, evens out your skin tone, gets rid of redness and dryness. One tube lasts for months, don't use too much or it will be as sticky and greasy as regular Vaseline. Also removes makeup if you like the old cold cream and tissue routine. I carry it with me in the winter to dab on and soothe any dry rough areas - hands, nose, lips, you name it, it can handle it.

  • Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup
    10.0

    Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup

    old reliable, why is it being discontinued?

    First Cover Girl now Elizabeth Arden discontinue moisturizing compact makeup with no spf. When will women wake up and realize they don't need sunscreen in their makeup unless they plan on being out in the sun? Why do you think your skin is dry and itchy and your eyes are irritated if you use spf makeup? So the manufacturer can sell you their skin treatment lines! I won't buy anything from Cover Girl anymore, now I won't buy anything from Elizabeth Arden. Nice marketing scheme, guys.

  • L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Explosion Carbon Black Mascara

    I wanted to try this brush when it first came out in the high priced brand, forget which, but the cost and the reviews complaining about the mascara put me off. So I jumped when L'oreal came out with their versoin and I am glad I did. I have extremely sensitive eyes but have never had a problem with L'oreal as long as it isn't waterproof, so this formula is no exception, and I can't rave enough about the brush! I knew this brush would be perfect for me since I always use the tip more than the full brush when applying my regular mascara. I had no learning curve with this brush, just use it normally as you would a regular brush - work in a straight line down the length of your eye. No need for the usual separating and repairs and catches with the tip of the usual brush at the end of application, it's already done for you with the initial strokes! Very natural look, no clumps or lumps, the only problem I can think of is if a thicker, more dramatic lash effect is wanted, it will take a lot more coats to achieve. Other than that one caveat, I am sold, this is my new everyday mascara with the added bonus of less time applying mascara and more time to get to work!

  • Ojon Tunu Elastik Flexible Finishing Hair Spray

    25.00 average price, but worth it! Perfect for fine, limp hair. Great hold, not sticky, and you can actually see your hair getting thicker looking as you spray. Awesome!

  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash

    First off, I love MUFE products and the Smoky Lash mascara is my absolute favorite. I tried this however and sent it right back. One reason I love Smoky Lash is that it never makes my eyes itch or burn and the mascara never flakes, one coat does it all, and every other wonderful thing you can think of, but their Aqua Smoky Lash is not only scented, it burns and itches. A No-no for me.

  • Smooth Away Hair Removal

    I don't think I would run out and buy this again, but it did work as long as I had lots of time to use it, otherwise easier just to go back to the old razor

    Make Up For Ever Liquid Lift Foundation

    discontinued at Sephora

    Why this is no longer carried, I don't know, but this together with the Lift Concealer was perfect.

  • Rimmel London Lash Maxxx

    Nice mascara for sensitive eyes, great for short lashes, doesn't really volumize but that's no problem as it separates and colors each lash. Need a couple applications to get the best effect.

  • CoverGirl Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Compact Foundation

    This was the perfect compact makeup and I am a huge compact foundation junkie. No sunscreen so no irritation, I could use it all over my eyes and face with no creasing, no flaking or caking, and the colors were all sheer but excellent correction and coverage. I have yet to find anything to replace it that doesn't either irritate my skin or cakes up. I will never buy Cover Girl again till they bring this back.
