  • Nars Blush-Bronzer Duo

    I've used the Orgasm shade of blush for years. It's perfect for any complexion and the bronzer gives a good glow without looking too fakey. The texture of both are luminous, never chalky or dry

  • Boscia Oil-free Daily Hydration SPF 15

    I did not like this at all. Granted, my face is not excessively oily, but this was so drying it made my face look flaky and feel itchy. Would definitely not repurchase. Might be OK for someone with very oily skin.

  • Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel

    I wanted to love this. I really did. I decided to purchase this after reading SO many positive reviews. My skin has been less than happy recently, so I decided I needed to change my skincare routine. I decided on this, since it was all natural, supposedly good for sensitive skin and no parabens, sulfates, etc. This BURNED my face! I must be allergic to one of the ingredients. My face was burning for days! I'm sure it's great, but not for me.

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

    I have tried many an eyeshadow primer. I thought I was stuck with the sticky, stiff crowd until I found this. Primers I have tried before made my lids sticky and shadow difficult to blend, and wouldn't even last all day! Not this. This stuff is amazing! It keeps shadow and liner in place all day! Literally, all day. A tiny ammount is more than enough for both lids, so this small tube will last forever. Sometimes, I wear this alone with no shadow. I find that it does even out the color of my lids, which tend to be a little red sometimes. It leaves behind a tiny ammount of shimmer, which is flattering and brightening to the eye area without looking like a disco ball. I've also noticed that my shadow and liner both look brighter and smoother when I use this. And, the packaging is FAR more easy to use than some. (like UDPP...you can't get all the product out without cutting the darn thing open. A total waste if you ask me!!)

  • Prescriptives Super Line Prenventor Xtreme

    Let me just start by saying mom used this for many years, from the time it came out in the 80s until very recently. She is 56 and her skin looks amazing. I just turned 29, so I am really starting to be concerned about anti-aging products, but most of them make me break out. Yeah, I'm fighting acne AND wrinkles at the same time. Lucky me! This product has not caused one single breakout. In fact, I think that this actually seems to help my breakouts heal faster. It is not sticky or heavy at all and is absorbed right away into my skin. I love that I can use it on my eyes as well, so I don't use a separate eye cream. I've been using this morning and night for about 8 weeks and the fine lines I do have seem to have diminished slightly. What I really notice, though, is that my whole complexion is brighter and healthier looking. I put it on before moisturizer and makeup and seems to make my foundation and concealer go on more smoothly. I also put it on under my night cream, or skip the night cream entirely if the weather is humid. I also put this on after I get Glycolic peels or Microdermabrasion and it's so soothing, and again, not irritating at all. Bottom line is that I am hooked on this stuff for sure. I've seen it on eBay for cheaper than the Prescriptives counter, but given a little goes a long way, I wouldn't mind paying full price for this.

    Clinique Almost Lipstick

    Black Honey shade

    I've been coveting this for a while after reading SOOOO many positive reviews. I don't like heavy lipstick, in fact, I am mostly a balm girl. I don't like heavy or sticky, but my lips always feel dry. I bought this last night on a whim, and I've gotta say, I'm in love. The color is perfect, the texture is perfect, and there's no heavy scent. It is a little pricey, but I'm so in love with this shade on my lips, I don't mind. It feels like my old stand-by cherry Chapstick, but looks WAY better! I do wish it lasted a little longer, though. I do feel like I need to re-apply often.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel

    I've been using this for almost a year, in combination with my Clarisonic brush, and my skin has NEVER looked better! I usually suffer from acne, and my skin is really sensitive, so "acne" washes are generally too harsh for me and it makes the problem worse. This contains fruit enzymes that gently exfoliate to get rid of dead skin cells which cause acne. After using this, my skin is soft and glowy. It never feels too dry or too oily, I'd say it leaves it balanced. I use several Mario products, and through trial and error, I think I have found my "dream team" which includes this cleanser. The packaging is minimal, which is fine by me. I don't care that it's "boring" because it works! Price seems high at first, but with this, a little goes a long way, so it lasts a really long time - and I always buy the BIG bottle. Definitely HG for me.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

    I love this stuff. I use it 2 or 3 times a week, and it really exfoliates without drying or irritating my sensitive, acne-prone skin. A tiny bit works into a huge lather, so you don't have to use a lot. I've had the same bottle since Feb 09 and it's not even half gone. While, yes, it appears to be pricey, you use so little, that really, it's incredibly cost effective. I use it with my Clarisonic brush and the results are soft, clear, glow-y skin!

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder

    do like this, however, I don't use it very often. On really oily days, I dust this lightly over my entire face after foundation (if I wear it) and before I put on my finishing powder. I also wear this by itself sometimes. Mainly, though I use it as a spot treatment on blemishes and it dries them up mach 9! Because of the very small ammount of this needed, this will last me forever!!

  • Aquaphor Healing Ointment

    Aquaphor Healing Ointment

    The best lip balm ever!

    I use this on my lips religiously and they are always soft and flake free. It also makes a wonderful cuticle cream and is really good for rough feet. I do have a problem with eczema on my hands and I get a lot of relief from this.
