  • MAC Lip Pencil

    Not bad, not great. Does last a decent amount of time, but I hate that it comes in a pencil form that has to be sharpened. Is this a ploy by MAC to purchase one of their sharpeners too....? I do like Subculture - great "nudish" color that goes with a lot.

    Falls apart

    I found this "fell apart" on my skin, oxidized and turned blotchy. Maybe it's just me, but that's not a good look!

    bareMinerals SPF 20 Concealer

    Things I don't want to see....

    My idea of a good concealer isn't one that enhances all the wonderful little wrinkles & creases around my eyes.

  • Maybelline New York Ultra-Brow Brush-On Color

    This is perfect for my blonde "you almost can't see them eyebrows" eyebrows! I love the little brush - for me, I can work with it better than a pencil and the outcome is more natural. I also like that it's buildable and a little bit, goes a long way!

    Where did it go...?

    I love the colors in their cases and they look great on the initial application, but give it an hour or 2 and I find I have to re-apply again and again.

  • TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo

    I'm not a pro with dry shampoo, but since I wash my hair every other day, I figured I could give this a shot on the 2nd day. It seems to work well for me. My hair tends to get weighed down with oil, but my ends are really dry - hench why I don't shampoo everyday. Anyway, when I use this, it seems to work well for me. I don't really have anything to compare it to so I can't say if it's "great" or not, but for me, it did the job. It left my hair feeling much "cleaner" on the 2nd day than it normally did. I also noticed it helped to hold the style in my hair which makes me happy! The scent isn't bad, but it's not great either. Most TRESemme hair spray items don't smell stellar so once again, I didn't have much to compare this dry shampoo smell to other then the TRESemme hairspray I use. Would I buy this again - chances are yes. The price is right for me and since I'm not looking for something "perfect" just something that will do it's job, this worked for me!

  • Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Compact Powder Foundation

    Right now I'm focused on getting my skin in good shape and keeping it there! Between hormones & aging, it's turned into a mess if I don't take really GREAT care of it. I've been seeking high & low for a good mineral foundation that didn't turn my already acne & oily skin into a complete mess by the end of the day and will compliment my skin care regime. As I was cruising the cosmetic isle, I came across this and said to myself "Hey, why not, it can't be any worse than anything else I've tried." I'm so happy I bought this! Seriously, I don't experience any oiliness and I live in an area plagued by humidity in the summer time - GROSS HUMIDITY! My skin has cleared up and I don't feel like I'm wearing a mask with this on. I use my Pur Minerals brush, I do the swirl, tap routine and it buffs nicely onto my face. I also notice there's not a lot of rub off, which has always been a big thing for me. Nothing worse than seeing someone wearing their makeup on their clothing or accessories - totally grosses me out. I've also found I don't use a lot of this - it buffs so nicely and evenly into my skin - perfection! For special evenings, I use Sephora's peach primer under it and it gives me a really nice glow. When the days are especially humid, I top this off with MAC's Prep & Prime Powder. PERFECT!

  • Milani Color Perfect Lipstick

    Felt chalky on my lips and seemed to dehydrate any moisture I had. I chose Beloved thinking it was a nude color, however it turned more of a frosty white color - like the kind you find from a 70's movie.

    Gorgeous....in the package

    How gorgeous are these when you're looking at them! Just beautiful! Makes you want to buy them all! Luckily I only bought 1 and yep, I took it right back after I used it once! I felt like I had chalk on my eyes and during the day, I noticed the colors started change - getting much darker then it was when I first applied it. I can give it props for not creasing considering I had use a decent amount when I applied it. As much as I love seeing these on the shelves, I won't be seeing them in my cosmetic collection!

  • Urban Decay Surreal Skin Creamy Concealer

    I generally love UD products, but this made the areas around my eyes look dried out and enhanced the wrinkles - not something I'm willing to pay for!
