  • Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm

    I saw this product in ads and in the store, and thought it looked like a great lip stain for a vibrant lip color that would last. I was excited that it came with a lip balm too. I was VERY disappointed. The color(if any comes out at all) is very muted and doesn't last even an hour. The applicator is like a dried up marker with barely any ink left in it. The only good thing about this product was the lip balm on the other end. It is a pretty good lip balm. That was until it fell off a couple days after I bought it. Big waste of money :(

  • Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Primer

    I have used a handful of different primers, and they all spread easily and are a silky smoth consistency. I tried this one because it is green tinted and wanted to use it to cover up my rosacea. First of all, the applicator makes it difficult to control how much product comes out. You twist the bottle to make the product come out of the brush, and when it finally comes out, it does so in a huge amount. My biggest complaint about this product is how thick and cakey it is. Once you get it out of the container and apply it to your face, it is EXTREMELY difficult to spread and blend .I feels like a very thick concealer. You have to rub your face vigorously to get it to spread at all. Most people buying this product most likely have mild to moderate rosacea and the extra rubbing you have to do to blend the product exacerbates the rosacea and makes your face way more red and irritated. Once I applied my foundation on top of the primer, my makeup looked extra cakey and unnatural. Primer is supposed to improve the look of your foundation and make it look MORE natural! So, this product fails in both of those areas. However, I do highly recommend some of the other physician formula green products such as the concealer sticks. Their concealer is lighter and easier to spread. It also looks more natural on your face and neutralizes redness very well without further exacerbating it.

  • Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Balancing Toner

    I have tried MANY toners in my life so far(I'm 27), and this one has transformed my skin. I have really sensitive skin with tons of blackhead and whiteheads. Most toners have alcohol and lots of other skin irritating ingredients. This one makes your skin feel refreshed and extra clean, while boosting your skin with a bunch of natural beneficial ingredients. My blackheads and whiteheads are gone, my skin looks vibrant, glowy and healthy. I also have rosacea and this product has helped my redness improve significantly. YOU WONT REGRET USING THIS PRODUCT.

  • Boots Expert Sensitive Gentle Cleansing Wash

    I love this entire line of products. This cleanser has worked great for my extremely sensitive skin. I have eczema and rosacea and it doesn't irritate it at all. It helps get most of my makeup off too. Its a great product at a great price!

  • Victoria's Secret Minerals Collection Loose Face Powder SPF15

    What first attracted me to this product was the brush applicator that the powder comes in. the powder is dispensed through the brush, and so you don't have a need for a separate brush and powder. It is great for make-up on the go, Its very compact and fits in your purse very easily. The powder provides pretty good coverage and has a slight shimmer. It doesn't irritate my skin, and looks very natural. The only complaint I have is that a few of the bristles fell off after using it a week.

  • E.L.F. Shielding Hydro-Tint
    10.0

    E.L.F. Shielding Hydro-Tint

    one of my faves

    I just tried this out and was pleasantly surprised. It works great as a moisturizer with the bonus of making your skin look more balanced and even. I didn't really need a concealer after using it. I just put it on before using my powder and it made my skin look really natural, smooth and even. The bottle is small which worried me but a little bit goes farther than I expected and for the price of a dollar, I'll DEFINITELY buy this product again!

    Mitchum Powder Fresh Clear Gel For Women

    stick with the solid instead

    I have used mitchum solid deodorants in the past and thought it lasted all day and kept me really dry. I found when using this gel version that it didn't work in combatting odor and I ended up having b.o. a couple hours after application. It made me wonder if I had applied deodorant at all. It did keep me very dry though. I also didnt like the feel of the sticky gel. I'm thinking maybe the gel formula just didnt stick to my skin very well. Maybe not everyone has this experience with it. Also, whenever I opened the cap, I seemed to find it full of the gel, which had seeped through the dispensing holes. I still like mitchum brand deodorant though and will just stick to the solid from now on.

  • CHI Silk Infusion

    CHI Silk Infusion

    a bit pricey, but a great prodcut!

    I had this product put in my hair when getting a haircut, and it left it so silky, soft and shiny! It smelled really good too. I noticed such a stark difference between using it and not using it that I had to buy it. It also does a great job at protecting my hair from heat damage when blow drying or using a straight iron. I have thick oily hair, so I was afraid it might leave my hair greasy or weighed down, but it didn't at all. I just avoid using it right near my roots and focus on the middle to ends of my hair when applying it.
