  • Lancome Oscillation Mascara
    3.0

    Lancome Oscillation Mascara

    Did not meet my expectations

    When this was released, I bought it right away despite the high price tag. The formula was very wet, and the mascara coated my lashes quickly, but it also made all my lashes stick together. The vibrating brush was almost useless, maybe except for a fast application. No significant length and thickness improvement. I really don't think this unique wand makes this mascara any superior than most of what I have used and am currently using.

  • Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment

    Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment

    Soothes itchy skin and sunburn

    I can no longer find Aveeno snti-itch skin relief bath treatment version, so whenever my family member or I have itchy skin or sunburn, I make a nice warm bath with this Soothing bath treatment formula. When skin is soaked in this bath, it cleans skin gently without using any harsh shower gel or scrubbing skin with a body wash pouf. Since this is not supposed to be an aromatic bath, I don't mind their not-very-appealing oatmeal scent. Clean up is a little messy, but it soothes skin and relieves itchiness temporarily.

  • Goody Mosaic Black Shower Cap
    10.0

    Goody Mosaic Black Shower Cap

    My must item when coloring/highlighting hair at home

    I have pink and black Goody shower caps. Unlike a thin shower cap I can get free from a hotel, these are thicker and more durable so I can re-use them several times. I always use it when I don't wash my hair or don't want to get it wet while I take a nice bubble bath. But also I wear it while I highlight my hair at home. It keeps all the dye in place.

  • Aveda Brilliant Universal Styling Creme
    6.0

    Aveda Brilliant Universal Styling Creme

    I did not like their scent

    My hair is very dry mostly due to swimming, and also I have frizzy and colored hair too. Sometimes a conditioner is not enough and I need something to moisturize and smooth in the evening or for my second-day hair. Unfortunately, I did not open the product and sniff before purchasing. The scent of this product is too strong and masculine. A little goes a long way, and does it help to tame frizz and straighten my hair, but I felt like I was using a men's styling product. Thus, I won't buy it again because it is too expensive for me to not to love the product 100%.

  • Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Trio

    I also got a few of these trios as a gift with purchase item. The color combination are workable, blendable and wearable, but some of the sheer/neutral ones are not pigmented enough. Even though each color feels very light and goes on smoothly, the staying power needs to be extended with a good primer. While MAC and bareMinerals offer a nice dark and bold colors, I do like sheer and soft colors by Clinique and Shiseido.

  • Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil

    As my skin gets older and drier, I tend to use more baby oil or body oil in winter. I love Johnson's baby oil gel, Burt's bees apricot oil, Neutrogena's oil, and now I also find another one. I love the scent of Palmer's body oil. The scent is sweet, and their oil absorbs into my skin quickly. It is moisturizing, but it does not leave a sticky or greasy feeling on my skin. While the bottle and the application can be a bit messy, just like many other body oil products, my skin, especially elbows and heels, especially, feel nice and smooth after using this.

  • Cutex Regular Nail Polish Remover

    It removes nail polish quickly and effectively, but I find that the smell of this Cutex formula is stronger and their price tag is slightly expensive than most of Sally Hansen nail polish removers.

  • Ulta Candle
    7.0

    Ulta Candle

    A lid would be nicer

    I received a few of their small candles in glass as a gift. I like the scent of Lavender Votive, but I wish each of these Ulta candles came with a lid so it would stay dust-free and preserve the fragrance. When I don't use them for a while, there are dust on the top of the wax. Therefore, I prefer Slatkin or Yankee candles to this one.

  • bareMinerals Warmth All-Over Face Color
    9.0

    bareMinerals Warmth All-Over Face Color

    Great bronzer and no oompa loompa look

    I don't use bareMineral foundation without this Warmth. My Original SPF base foundation color is Medium Beige. It matches my skin color, but without Warmth my face still looks lifeless and plain. But with this Warmth, my face looks like just kissed by sun. First I was afraid that Warmth would not be the right color for me since there was no variety. All I need is only a little bit of this. I apply it with a Flawless Application Face Brush which was included in a 9-Piece Get Started Kit, do the whole swirl and tap thing. With this powder, my face transforms immediately. I don't need any additional bronzer! I was suggested to use only on cheeks, on forehead and on the top of my nose, but I used it all over my face. Nevertheless, I don't look like a oompa loompa! This stuff gives a natural healthy look. BTW, even when you know your natural skin tone, I recommend not to order your base foundation online for the first time. Go to a bareMineals store or Sephora, and ask someone to help you. It happened to me. I picked up a wrong color because I thought I knew. what it looked from outside of the package was not the exact same when I actually applied it on my skin. A nice sales person at a bareMinerals store picked the right color for my base foundation, and then Warmth worked much better!

  • Stila Lip Glaze
    4.0

    Stila Lip Glaze

    Like the packaging, but not the content

    I got this lip gloss about 3 years ago. I am sure I still have it somewhere in my drawer, tucked away (if I see it, I will throw it away btw...lol). This one was like a click pen, which I liked because it did not ooze out the gloss, unlike a tube of lip gloss. Also, their applicator brush did a good job applying it evenly. But since it was sticky and heavy, the gloss sat on the top of my lips, and my lips looked like I just ate something oily. The color was not intense enough, but the glue like consistency stayed on my lips for a long time as long as my lips did not touch anything.
