  • Studio Gear Invincible Gel Cream Eye Color

    I tried this product because Loreal HIP cream eyeliner, although a good product, just missed the mark for me. This eyeliner has a much creamer consistency so it is easy to apply with a liner brush, and the shades are smokey and soft. If you want to try the bolder eyeliner trend without going extreme, this is a good product to try- and it's cheaper than Smashbox's version. The best part is that it is easy to remove and is not "tatooed" on for days after you put it on!

  • Maybelline New York Dream Matte Powder

    I am just now "rediscovering" Maybelline products, and this product is another winner for me! I bought this along with the dream matte liquid foundation, and now I think I've found the perfect powder for the summer months. I don't generally wear powder except in the summer, and have had a hard time finding one that works with regular liquid foundation, does not set into lines and wrinkles, or irritate my skin. And while I love mineral makeup, my oily skin just drinks it up- it only lasts a few hours. If you are a fan of mineral make-up, this powder has a similar consistency and effect of a finishing veil: it's light, finely textured, and has a slight luminescent quality.

  • Maybelline New York Expert Wear Blush

    I was searching for a pink blush to layer with bronzer for spring and summer, and I found it in the shade "Pinched Pink." The shade palette is natural looking and offers a good selection and the blush goes on easily,( although I would recommend using your own brush).

  • Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse

    In my effort to try to find cheaper beauty products and kick the expensive brand habit, I tried this foundation because it was on sale and it passed all of the important tests: price, good shade selection, light to medium coverage, oil and fragrance free. It provides a soft luminous finish without being too shimmery. I would equate the level of coverage to one step above a tinted moisturizer. I have to give Maybelline snaps for this one- and now it's not just about the mascara!

  • Maybelline New York Shine Seduction Glossy Lipcolor

    Maybelline New York Shine Seduction Glossy Lipcolor

    Sophisticated colors, nice shine

    I read about this product in a popular fashion and beauty magazine, and I have to admit the recommendation was right on point. The colors are sophisticated and flattering to a wide range of skin tones, and there is no strong fragrance or flavor. This gloss creates high shine with subtle pearlescence, making it very versitile. The color palette is what sets this product apart, though.

  • Maybelline New York Lip Polish Lip Gloss

    I just bought a tube of this gloss and so far, so good! It does not have a heavy scent nor is it flavored, so I won't end up licking it off in ten minutes after I put it on! The shades and shine are fun but also sophisticated enough to wear anywhere. It also layers nicely over lipstick or liner without feeling heavy or sticky.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Color Truth Cream Eyeliner

    In an effort to save money, I tried this as a substitute for Smashbox cream eyeliner. I have to say that it performs pretty well and the brush that comes with it is easy to use. It is not quite as buildable/versatile as the smashbox product, as this product creates a very saturated color and bold line. I do wish there was a larger selection of colors, atleast a lighter brown and a charcoal grey would be nice additions to the color palette.

  • Maybelline New York Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara

    I guess my expectations were too high when I bought this product in "Very Black," because I did not get the long, defined lashes I expected AT ALL, even after several coats. The consistency was thin and the product just did not adhere to my lashes like other lengthening formulas like Lash Stylist. I would say it is average, and certainly does not live up to the hype. I am sticking with my favorite: Colossal Mascara, in Glam Black and Glam Brown!

  • Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer

    Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer

    Be careful: Foaming moisturizer dispenses quickly!

    I really like this product because it produces the right amount of natural looking color for lighter skintones. The scent is virtually unnoticable for me, and the foaming moisturizer dries instantly. My only problem with the foam formula is that it can be hard to control the dispenser, so I've ended up wtih some streaking because the product came out so quickly! I guess it just takes practice- but it is worth it because the foam dries so quickly.

  • St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash

    St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash

    Try the body polish, too!

    I did not see a category for the Ste. Ives Shea Butter Exfoliating Body Polish, but since the body wash is a similar product, I've entered my feedback here. If you like the body wash, you'll absolutely love this product. It is fine-grained but very emoilient, so it leaves my skin smooth and moisturized. I use it on my knees, feet and elbows prior to sunless tanning, and also have an extra tub to use exclusively as a hand scrub-(the price makes it possible to indulge). It does have a strong coconut-y scent, but for me it's a beachy aromatherapy experience!
