  • Tocca Fragrance Rollerball
    9.0

    Tocca Fragrance Rollerball

    Love Love Love!

    This was my first time trying any Tocca product, and it was an impulse buy for me. I originally went to Sephora to get the Coach Poppy rollerball duo, but instead I fell in love with the Tocca 'Giulietta' scent. It smells so elegant, and sophisticated, like I should be sipping a cup of tea in an upscale cafe in Paris. The scent will last all day! The packaging is so pretty and perfectly emulates what is inside. Very fancy and regal. Great for traveling with or toting it around in your purse or clutch. Highly recommend.

  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Rollerball

    Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Rollerball

    Love the Smell but not the Longevity

    I am a huge fan of Marc Jacob fragrances. The packaging is always so gorgeous, and I haven't had a Marc Jacob fragrance that disappointed me so far *cross my fingers*. I do love rollerballs just because they are easy to travel with and to just drop in your purse. They are also great for getting the fragrance right on your pulse points unlike a spray. But.. there is a but.. This particular rollerball doesn't last very long. When I use a fragrance, I usually just put it on in the morning and it will stay with me throughout an entire workday. This one, I have to reapply after about 4-5 hrs. Love the scent though, it really is a fresh, floral smell. Great for Spring or Summer. Price point is average, but I think I would opt for the spray bottle instead of the rollerball.

  • Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter
    8.0

    Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

    Perfect for Summer!

    I was hesitant to try this lip butter at first just because I don't really care for the packaging, but I went ahead and got 'Juicy Papaya' because I've been hearing so many great things about this particular color, I just had to see for myself what the big deal was. Oh my.. what a gorgeous color! I got it this Summer and it was so perfect! It has a sheer finish, and it moisturizes great! The application is very smooth so it doesn't feel like you have anything on your lips. Lasts average about 6-8 hrs depending on how much you drink and eat between that time. For me, I still have some color after lunch time. The smell of this lip butter reminds me of the beach.. a coconut and shea butter type of smell which I loooove! Great product, highly recommend. I will be picking up more colors very soon!

  • Maybelline New York Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm

    I bought two of these cute little lip balms and at first liked them A LOT! After about a week, I noticed that it made my lips peel! What the..? Anyways, I do like the look of 'Pink Punch' which is a soft fuchsia color, great for when you don't have time to do makeup in the morning, but want a little pop of color. It isn't as moisturizing as I would have hoped, and it doesn't last to long throughout the day. The packaging is spot on, very cute, but needs a little work on the product itself.

  • Maybelline New York Color Sensational Color Whisper Lip Color

    I am so surprised that this product has a average-low rating! The first tube I picked up was 'L*st for Blush' and I instantly fell in love. These lipstick do have a sheer finish, so if you are looking for a lipstick that will pack a lot of color, this isn't the product for you. I actually love how the brighter colors go on softly so it looks more like a natural flush. I have 7 of the colors, and I use all of them in rotation, depending on my mood =) The price point is great, $8 each at CVS, the packaging is super pretty, the finish is a sheer with some shine, and it moisturizes. Only problem for me is that it will last about 4-5 hrs. Its not a long lasting lipstick, which doesn't bother me, but overall, the look and feel of this product is amazing! My top favorites are: 'Mocha Muse', 'Petal Rebel' and 'Pink Possibilities'.

  • Dior Crayon Eyeliner
    4.0

    Dior Crayon Eyeliner

    Not as creamy as kohl liner should be

    I thought this liner would be great for lining my waterline but it wasnt too creamy so it would tug a bit and I had to apply a few swipes to get the color to really show up! I only use this one a couple times and now it just sits in my makeup case. Could be better..

  • Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss

    These are just ok glosses, I think for the price, they are not worth it. I do like that they arent very sticky and they give pretty good color. Great over any lipstick or even by itself. The ones with shimmer in it will leave a shimmery residue after though. Lasts a good amount of time, I would say without eating and drinking it would last 4-5 hours.

  • Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Glossing Spray

    I absolutely fell in love with this the first time I used it. I have very long hair that sometimes would just look dull. After spraying this all around and combing through it really made my hair feel softer and smoother with no fly aways and no frizz. It also has a great smell to it which I love. One thing that really sold me on this was that it wasnt greasy AT ALL. Most glossing or shine sprays leave a residue thats greasy or sticky but I swear its not greasy, oily or sticky and works wonders! Comparable to salon brands but with a waaaaay better price!

  • Urban Decay Razor Sharp Ultra Definition Finishing Powder

    I didn't really see the purpose of this product. I have to practically hit my face with the powder sponge to get any product out. And then I would just end up with spots of powder all over my face. The sponge top is really hard so I felt like this product would damage my skin if I rubbed it really hard all over my face.. I don't think UD thought this one through very well.. Great concept but needs a lot of improvement.

  • Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara

    I wasn't too impressed with this product. I like the concept of the brush being curved to give lashes that curl but I didn't see a dramatic change. Its a really wet formula and I usually prefer dryer formulas like Diorshow which add volume. Usually when I use curling mascaras they tend to also give the illusion of longer lashes, but this one didn't do much at all. It actually made my lashes look all tangled and going every which way instead of a nice fan. I have pretty short and thin lashes so this mascara might work better for someone with longer thicker lashes.
