Here are all my reviews:
  • Sephora Collection Glossy Gloss

    This isn't a bad gloss at all. I was actually quite impresed by it because I usually find Sephora Collection cosmetics to be lacking in quality. I did not find it to be sticky or too thick. A lot of products tend to leave my lips feeling dry at the end of the day, but this product did not do that. The main issue I had with this gloss is the really sweet smell and some shades are pretty shimmery. The staying power was decent for a gloss, and was around 3 hours. The pigment was also good. This gloss also comes in a variety shades, so there is something for everyone. My personal favorites are Maple Syrup and Rosy Glow. At $10, I do think it is a a bit overpriced.

  • Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream

    I have eczema, so my skin is pretty sensitive. But I am also prone to breakouts. After trying The Body Shop's tea tree line, my skin was pretty irritated. I had a tub of Noxzema, so I tried it for a few days. And what a difference. The redness and dryness went away after two days. I have been using Noxzema for almost a month now and I have had far less breakouts as well as no issues with my eczema. My mom has also used Noxzema for years despite many naysayers and her skin is flawless. It also feels very refreshing and cooling. Especially on hot summer days.

    St. Ives Soothing Oatmeal Shea

    As good as Aveeno.

    I have eczema and had been using Aveeno's Skin Relief lotion to soothe my skin. And we know Aveeno is a tad pricey compared to the other brands. Seeing the St. Ives lotion was half the price, I tried it. And it is just as moisturizing and good for sensitive skin. Plus it smells better :)

  • St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub

    I didn't see any kind of changes in the clarity of my skin, but it did not get any worse. I had a few pesky blackheads and small pimples that I was hoping this would clear up,but it did not. It is gentle and smells amazing. Not a bad product, but just not for me.

  • bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipgloss

    bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipgloss

    One of the best glosses

    I received two of these glosses in a set and loved them. They are a little sticky, but they seem to stay on for a couple of hours and keep my lips moisturized.

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

    For the price, this seems to be an average primer. It doesn't seem to make my foundation last any longer and my skin still gets really oily.

    NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadow

    Just as good as high end products, maybe better.

    This is amazing eyeshadow at an amazing price! The pigment is great, color is long lasting, there is a HUGE variety of colors and it goes on smooth. I especially reccommend the shade Aloha. It is the best color for highlighting,using a base or it looks great alone.

  • John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Luminous Color Glaze

    Not an amazing product,but not terrible. I have strong red undertones that begin to show up a week after coloring. Using this seems to prolong the red, but not by very long. However, the glaze does keep my hair soft and shiny.

  • Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
    6.0

    Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

    Not sure how I feel about it.

    I have this pencil in Roman Holiday and love the shade. Itlooks a really bright, but does not go on as bright. It is not drying like a lot of matte lipsticks. The main problem I have with this product is the staying power. It seems like 15-20 minutes after I put it on, you can barely see it. I will keep the one I have but will likely not buy this product again.

  • CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm
    8.0

    CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm

    Much Better Than I expected.

    I have never been a big fan of Cover Girl, but this product exceeded my expectations. I bought this balm in Tulip on a whim. I don't wear it everyday, but it is perfect on days when I am in a hurry and want to wear something light. It isn't quite as moisturizing as I would like, but it still does a pretty good job. Plus I love that it has SPF and comes in nice colors. I would buy it again. And the price is right =)
