  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Shine Control Cleanser

    This product sucks. Plain and simple. It smells horrible, for starters. It left my face shinier than ever, and it felt tight and filmy afterwards. In addition to all of that, it made my face break out. Immediately after I stop using this product, the breakouts cleared up. Such a waste.

  • Orly Spritz Dry
    1.0

    Orly Spritz Dry

    If I Could Give It Zero Stars...

    I would. I bought this for $8 from Sally's, thinking that because it was Orly, it would be worth the money, and that since it came in a fairly large bottle, I was getting a good deal. I really, really wanted to like this product. It did absolutely nothing to my nails except make them sticky and subsequently ruin my manicure. It leaves filmy spots on top of the polish that will not wash off, despite saying "No Oily Residue" right on the front of the bottle. I can't see how this can ever be used for some other application besides nails, so this product is going straight into the trash. I strongly suspect that since ACETONE IS THE SECOND INGREDIENT ON THE LIST, this product was destined for failure from the start.

  • Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor

    This has been officially labeled as my "party lipstick" because it will literally last forever. Even when I try to rub it off, it will stay on my lips. I took one star off for that because, at 3 in the morning after a party when all I want to do is crawl into bed, I'm usually not in the mood to fight with my lipstick to get it to come off. But other than that, this stuff is absolutely perfect. Goes on smoothly, doesn't dry out as the day (or night) goes on, and I absolutely love the colors. Plus, for what you get, the price is unbeatable. This was the first Covergirl product I ever bought, and now I can't get enough of them.

  • Secret Outlast Clear Gel
    4.0

    Secret Outlast Clear Gel

    Not That Great

    The only thing I liked about this deodorant is that it did not leave white marks on my clothing. Then again, this is not unique to this product, as all gels do that. Even though it is an antiperspirant, it will not keep you from sweating. At all. The smell is really clean and fresh, but it will not last you until the end of the day. If you must use a Secret gel, I would suggest the other, heavily scented ones. At least those will still keep you smelling nice even if you do sweat a lot.

  • Sally Hansen Hair Remover Wax Strip Kit for Body

    I tried these because I was too cheap to go get a professional job. From now on, I'll stick to the salon. Heating up the strips between my hands was a hassle, especially with the bigger ones because they never warmed up enough. Then, once pulled apart, whichever of the two strips I used second would re-harden in the time it took me to use the first one. They never grabbed all of the hair, and were just generally more trouble than they are worth. I will be sticking to my razor or Nair when I want to do the job myself at home.

  • Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Vitalizing Body Gel Oil

    I took off a smell because this product is a bit pricey, especially on my college student budget, but this body oil is just amazing! It smells a bit more chocolate-y than most other cocoa butter products, but I love that. It takes a while to dry as well, but I'd expect that since it's an oil. It's great for dry skin, especially when applied at night, and a little definitely goes a long way. After a week of using this product over my whole body I can still barely tell that any is missing from the bottle.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Liquid Lip Shine Lipgloss

    The new formula is great! I absolutely love how strongly the color comes on, first of all. It's very moisturizing, and not sticky at all. And it lasts forever! For the price, it's an AMAZING deal. I'm so glad they redid the formula.

  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15
    6.0

    MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

    Good but not great

    If this were a drugstore brand, I would let its shortcomings slide. But for a MAC product, I expected much more. The foundation doesn't cover much, but at the same time, appears and feels heavy even when I've only applied a light amount. It also does not last very long and even when primed and set, will wipe off.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

    I bought this on sale in a dusky purple that I wasn't really expecting to show up much because I had such a bad experience with the automatic pencil, but then I put it on and WOW. The color was so bright (or as bright as this shade can be) and vibrant, and it definitely showed. It's also very long-lasting. Next time CVS has them on sale, I will definitely be buying more.

  • Carol's Daughter Lemon and Jojoba Cuticle Oil

    I live in NYC where the changing seasons are really harsh on my fingernails and my nail beds/cuticles tend to get really dry and cracked. This cuticle oil was the best $10 I've ever spent. All you need is a drop for every two nails or so, and that's all you need for the rest of the day. Since then, my nails have been very moisturized and the splitting has completely stopped. The smell is very good, as well. I took off one star, though, because (and this may have been just the particular bottle I bought and not applying to all of this product) the bottle cap tends to not stay on, and one day I tipped it over without realizing and lost ALL of the oil to my carpet. =(
