    Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

    Sticky, Sticky Sticky

    I will admit, this lip gloss does have some staying power. It comes in beautiful colors. The packaging looks good and I like the wand applicator. So why the low rating? This stuff is STICKY. It feels heavy and thick and it makes my lips sticky. My hair gets stuck to it. It gets on everything - water bottles, cigarettes. If it comes near my mouth, it will get sticky lip gloss on it. Never mind trying to eat with it on. Every few years I pick up another one of these, and every few years I end up wasting my money on some very pretty lip gloss that I can't stand to wear. If you want a reasonably long-wearing lip gloss and don't mind sticky, this may be a good product. It just not what I'm looking for.

  • Rock & Republic Classic Tinted Primer with SPF 20

    Rock & Republic Classic Tinted Primer with SPF 20

    Very nice primer - I can skip foundation!

    I picked up this primer in the AVA color as part of a set with the Illumanizer. I really like it so far. I need to use a light hand with it. Too much and it'll start to roll up, but it goes on very smoothly. It's thicker than some of the other primers (like Smashbox) - more of a mousse than a liquid-gel. It evens out my skin tone and glides over my little wrinkles. I haven't worn foundation since i started using it. It's that nice! It even does reasonably well at controlling shine. Nothing can help my nose, but the rest of my face maintains well. The packaging is very nice. It looks good and feels solid. The one weird thing - it needs to be primed/"uncorked" when you first us it. There's a little hole in the bottom of the can and you need to push something (I used a paperclip) into it so you can push on the bottom of the canister while you pump until product comes out. Kind weird...but after that it dispenses nicely. It is a little pricey to me, so I don't know whether I'll re-buy it. I do like what it does with my skin, so I'll just keep my eyes open for sales!

  • Buxom Full-on Lip Polish

    Buxom Full-on Lip Polish

    It's good but not great

    I'd read so many great reviews the I had to try this gloss. Unfortunately, I'm just not thrilled with it. It's a good lip gloss. The color selection is great. It wears well. It tastes nice and it does moisturize my lips. It just isn't "all that" for me. I didn't notice any tingling. My lips didn't get any fuller than they do with any other decent moisturizing gloss. It's a bit sticky for my taste. Like I said, it's a good lip gloss. I just don't think it's all that special.

  • Korres Natural Products Mango Butter Lipstick

    Korres Natural Products Mango Butter Lipstick

    Lipstick and lip balm in one

    I love the texture of this lipstick. It's creamy and moisturizing and light. The color IS sheer, so don't expect a huge color payout. It smells delicious and goes on very smoothly. It's packaged well - the tube feels substantial and it "clicks" shut so it won't come open in the bottom of your purse. It doesn't have a lot of staying power. This is not a particularly long-wearing lipstick. In some ways, it's like a tinted lip balm, all grown up. It's perfect for my "natural" low-maintenance looks.

    Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer

    Decent light coverage

    This is a nice, light option when I don't want to wear foundation. The coverage is very sheer, but it does even out my complexion. I wish it offered a bit of oil control. By the end of the day I can get a bit shiny. I usually top this off with a bit of powder to fight the shine and improve the staying capacity. It's not my HG, but it's a decent product the offers light moisture, SPF, retinol and a bit of tint for a very reasonable price
