  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

    I bought this only because it was on sale and I liked the shape of the brush, but it completely let me down. The formula is super wet and goes on too thick, leading to clumpy lashes. A few hours after application it flakes like crazy, leaving black specks and raccoon smudges under your eyes. It goes on a little better after some air has entered the tube and dried it a little but I wouldn't buy it again.

  • Smashbox Limitless Long Wear Lipgloss SPF 15

    This lipgloss is my favorite! I love the thick consistency and vanilla smell. It makes my lips very shiny but not glassy looking and has just the right amount of shimmer. I love the way it looks with a smoky eye but also use it every day for work and daytime looks. The slightly slanted applicator is perfectly shaped and gives just the right amount of product. My only complaint is that it does not last as long as I had hoped but I will continue to buy it because I have yet to find a gloss that I like better.

  • Smashbox Blush

    Smashbox Blush

    Smooth Application

    I really like this product because of the smooth, silky application. They're very pigmented but not too shocking or harsh so you don't need to apply a lot to get good color, which makes the product last very long even with daily wear. The colors I purchased were very flat/matte which is good for oily skin but can sometimes appear dry on normal-dry skin like mine. Overall, I think these blushes are a good buy.

  • Avon SKIN SO SOFT Fresh & Smooth Hair Removal Microwave Wax For Face and Body

    I like this product and did not find it any more or less messy than other at-home microwave kits. It definitely does remove hair from my face, underarms, bikini area, and legs very well. I don't like the smell, which reminds me of candle wax and aspirin, but it's not bad enough to keep me from purchasing this product again. Also, the plastic applicators don't work very well so I purchased some very cheap popsticle-stick like applicators from Sally's that did a much better job.

  • Avon Ageless Results Renewing Day Cream SPF 15

    I am very happy with this product. It smells very nice and after a few weeks of usage I noticed that some discoloration I had from old acne scarring had lightened significantly, though it doesn't claim to do so. My only complaint is that it's a little greasy for day-wear and sometimes makes my foundation "pill" when I apply it with my fingers. It also makes my eyeshadow crease if I get it on my eyelids before application but I have normal-dry skin so it's not a big deal since it moisturizes my skin so well. It's also a great value compared to department store and even some drugstore skin creams.

  • Avon NATURALS Shower Gel
    2.0

    Avon NATURALS Shower Gel

    Not much better than water alone

    I bought several of these on sale for $1.99 and was pretty disappointed. It may be my fault for not paying attention to how many ounces each container holds but I was very surprised by how small the bottles were when I received them. The consistency is very watery and while the scents are pleasant upon application, they don't transfer to your skin once you're out of the shower. You have to use A LOT of product to get enough lather for your entire body so between my boyfriend and I showering once a day, we finish each bottle in 3-4 days. It also did not leave my skin feeling moisturized, though I'm not sure if the catalog or packaging claims that it is supposed to.

  • Avon GLIMMERSTICKS Diamonds Eye Liner

    I bought several different colors of this product, my favorite being a dark navy blue with shimmer. The black that I bought was too grey but did have a good amount of shimmer as well. I do not like that after a couple of uses the liners develop a blunt tip and do not sharpen as you twist.

  • Avon NATURALS Body Lotion

    I usually buy Bath and Body Works lotions but decided to buy some of these because of a really good sale Avon was having. I can't say I was happy with my purchases. The consistency is way too thin and the fragrance is too subtle for my taste and does not last more than a couple of hours. I didn't feel like it was particularly moisturizing and in time it developed a chemical smell.

  • Avon GLAZEWEAR Lip Gloss
    5.0

    Avon GLAZEWEAR Lip Gloss

    Perfect for everyday use

    I've bought a variety of colors and finishes of this gloss and I'd say they're slightly above average. The consistency is a little thin but it gives lips a pretty good shine. It's not very long lasting so I find myself re-applying several times a day, which is ok given the very affordable price. Many times the colors are not true to the pictures in the catalogs, so ordering them can be hit or miss. I like the smell and it doesn't leave a weird taste on my lips or in my mouth.

  • Avon GLIMMERSTICKS Brow Definer
    2.0

    Avon GLIMMERSTICKS Brow Definer

    Would not buy again

    The application of this product was way too heavy and waxy for my brows. The tip becomes dull after the first use and doesn't sharpen with each twist so there is no way to make small strokes, just thick, dark lines. It seemed more like a lipliner then brow definer in my opinion. I tried using a lighter hand the second time but still ended up with chola eyebrows.
