  • John Frieda Sheer Blonde Luminous Color Glaze

    I highlight my hair in order to mask grays and I notice that when the grays are growing in, using this stuff definitely helps. This is probably because I only have a few grays here and there, and the brown dye makes them look "blonde," but still, it helps. It also makes my hair shiny and adds color to the highlights. I have to be careful not to use it too much, though, or my golden highlights start to look a little orange. But 2-3 x/week is fine. The only drawbacks are that it takes awhile to apply in the shower and is kind of messy. It also stains my scalps brown slighly right after using it, but I suppose being a dye that is unavoidable!

    Clinique Aromatics Elixir

    Bad choice for me...

    I ordered this online without smelling it because I am sensitive to scents and it claims to be for people like me. Big mistake. I am 25, and this stuff smells like it should be on my Grandma . Also, it was very strong and it did bother my nose the one time that I wore it. Definitely not for me!!

  • Olay Age Defying Classic Cleanser

    This cleanser does a good job, although I can't see how it is different from many others. Still, I like it and will continue to use it.

    Great for rosy glow!

    I used to use Clinique's tint blush, but I like this one better. It definitely gives you a rosy glow and it doesn't look like you are wearing blush at all. I tried it on my lips and it looked like I had just eaten a cherry popsicle--not exactly the look I was going for. So lips are a no go but awesome for the natural rosy blush I wanted!!

  • Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow/Liner

    I bought this as my first benefit product and I think I might never go back to clinique's powdery messes, which I used to use. It is amazing. Definitely creaseless, and doesn't look as make-upy as the powders I used to use. I also got suckered into buying the brush that the woman at the counter used, and that works very well although is probably overpriced for what it is. I guess the only drawback is that you would need to buy such a brush to apply the shadow, which adds up to mucho dinero after awhile! Still, $18 for one shade is worth it when the shade is as awesome as this one!!

  • Benefit gee... that was quick!

    This is definitely the best eye makeup remover that I have ever used. I was suckered in by one of those darn counter ladies, and was seriously unnerved by the high price tag (I can get eye makeup remover for $5 at CVS!! I could use baby oil for $1!!) but I it is worth it, especially if you are like me and make mistakes or enjoy experimenting. One swipe and the make-up is 95% gone. It's like a magic eraser or something. It also works very well on the face. I was hesitant to buy this but I will never go back now!!

    Benefit BADgal Lash

    Um, am I missing something?

    Everyone else seems to love this, but I found it thick and clumpy. Every time I put it on I have to manually remove clumps from my eyelashes. I was pretty disappointed since it is supposed to be so good--but maybe I am just used to a lighter mascara, and not the "false eyelash" kind.

    Benefit dear john

    I love this!

    I actually got this as a sample when I bought some cosmetics and I loved it so much that I went out and bought it. It is light and smooth, doesn't feel greasy at all. I wear it either under makeup during the day or put some on after I wash my face at night, especially in the winter when it is so dry. I often have problems with oiliness, and this moisturizer makes my skin smooth without feeling greasy. The only reason it isn't 10 stars is the lack of sunscreen--but maybe it wouldn't feel so good on if it did have that in it!
