    Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited

    love this feeling

    I've tried a few colors~ they all are cute, but I adore beige 930. Very light, but gives lips a warm diffused glow. I love the texture- usually I can't stand lip glosses because of the tacky feeling. This is more silky and less tacky- your lips don't stick together. It lasts reasonably well for such a formula. I would re-apply mid-day.

  • Smashbox Bionic Mascara

    I was excited to try this because I liked the separation I got with their original mascara. The problem with that one was it was so light it didn't do anything for lashes- this seemed to be a pumped up version of that- the brush looks bigger and promising. This mascara's marketing promises a lot. Alas... no results. This really doesn't do anything. Maybe if you want a natural look with not much added volume. Also; it smudges. There are much better preformers than this false advertisement!

  • Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils

    Shu is my #1 brand obsession- now having said that; this liner isn't my favorite. I got this in a metallic white and am dissapointed. The formula isn't as opaque as I had hoped, and it doesn't apply easily in a smooth line. The formula is nice and soft, so you never feel as though you're tourturing your eyelid. When it does show up, I do like the effect, i just think the white color doesn't work as well as dark pigments.

  • Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner

    I've tried a lot of Lancome over the years, and with the exception of their amazing mascara, everything has underwhelmed me. I got this in a beautiful dark plum color I couldn't find elsewhere, and I like how it goes on smooth, but sadly it doens't last all day. The line becomes pretty dulled down and smudged by the end of the day. Also, this is pretty steep for a liner. Even more expensive makeup brands carry cheaper liners than this. I enjoy the color, but will look for another brand when it's gone.

  • Clinique Touch Base for Eyes

    Clinique Touch Base for Eyes

    great all the time

    I'm hitting the bottom of mine- this is really nice to use under eyeshadow or alone for a subtle effect. I like that this is a light creamy formula; it goes on lighter than most eyeshadows and blends nicely. It does help keep shadow from creasing, and to stay vibrant longer. When I'm in a hurry I'll swipe this all over my eye area and go out with just a little shimmer. It just takes a couple seconds to apply with a finger. I've had this for more than a year and it's still working great.

  • Nars Lip Gloss

    The colors are so pretty & have lots of pigment, and I wanted to like this, but just couldn't bring myself to wear it more than a couple times. The formula is just so tacky sticky and gross. The flavor didn't help either; I don't understand why this has won awards or is so highly thought of. I like other NARS products just fine- just not this one. There are lots of other brands that have less-tacky glosses with tons of colors so you're really not loosing out by skipping this.

  • Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser

    I used this for years when i was a teenager, and loved it. The texture and light scent are so refreshing! It's also a strong cleanser; my face didn't feel oily after at all. However, once I was though my teenage years this quickly became much too overpowering for my skin. It left it tight and dried out feeling- when it started flaking (I was using good moisturizer!) I knew I had to can this.

  • Clinique 3-Step Kit with Facial Soap - Combination Oily and Oily Skin Types

    This is hard to review- I loved this system for my whole teenage existance when I started using it in jr. high. It was really great and I felt like it worked really well to combat oil. However, once I got out of my teens and into my early 20's I found this becoming too strong for my skin. I have combo skin and it wasn't preventing breakouts, while at the same time drying out some areas. My skin felt tight and dry- or too oily. I know there are different products for different skin types, but I couldn't find one that worked for me and had to abandon it.

  • Benefit lyin' eyes

    This isn't very remarkable. Any concealer you use is going to make a difference vs. none, but this one isn't very opaque. This is more like a liquid foundation, (the results are about the same) and I find I have to layer foundation and use a couple coats of this to cover what I want. The rep at the Benefit counter tried selling me like 4 products in conjunction with eachother to try to conceal my under eye shadows; this doesn't work alone. I much prefer cream concealers.

  • Benefit Eye Bright
    6.0

    Benefit Eye Bright

    shiny and bright

    I bought this with a concealer trying to lighten my under eye shadows. The lady at the benefit counter showed me how to wear and apply it and how to blend it and that was really useful; it does brighten the eye area. This isn't a natural skin tone concealer though; its a light shimmery pink. The effect is nice, but it does look like you're wearing eyeshadow/liner or something. I use this in the spring when shimmer around my eyes is fun. I won't purchase another though; I would just use a regular shadow or liner instead.
