    MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

    The Perfect Concealer

    After trying nearly every under-eye concealer out there to disguise my dark circles, I went to a MAC store and one of the sales associates suggested this longwear formula. Not only do my eyes appear brighter, but this product seems to smooth the fine lines under the eye area that have been aging my skin as well as giving me that perpetually tired look. It really does last all day and the texture is so smooth and natural, it doesn't appear cakey at all. Plus, a little bit goes a long way with this product. I barely use a dime sized amount for both under-eye areas.. And it comes in such a large array of shades that you are bound to find one perfect for you. I often buy under-eye concealers that are too light for me and end up with that raccoon look in photos. I suggest going to a MAC counter or store to have one of their artists match you.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Cleanser

    I read the reviews for this product on total beauty while looking for a new cleanser and thought I'd give it a try. I have acne prone skin but I also want to start addressing skin aging as well. This cleanser is really worth all the hype! After only a few days of use my skin has not broken out once and looks and feels more taut and youthful. My under-eye area looks especially more bright and the fine lines underneath seem to have been tightened. I'm so impressed with it and I think I've found my staple cleanser.

  • Revlon Brilliant Strength Nail Enamel

    Revlon Brilliant Strength Nail Enamel

    Beautiful Color but Not Strengthening

    I purchased this product in a muted coral color and while the color is beautiful and applies very well. I don't see how the product strengthens nails. The color lasted just as long as Revlon's standard nail enamel and my nails looked and felt no different after continued use of this product. The line of colors this product comes in is very unique and I've been complimented several times on the coral shade I bought. I suggest taking a look at the colors but do not pay much attention to the 'brilliant strength' aspect of this product.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Length Mascara

    First, when applying this mascara you feel as though you are applying nothing to your lashes. I don't know if there just isn't much formula but no matter how many coats you apply, your lashes don't look much different from when you started. At best, they are a bit more defined but in terms of length, volume and curl this did nothing for me.

  • L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Colour Caresse

    L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Colour Caresse

    Nice Balance Between Balm and Lipstick

    Overall I liked this product and would buy it again. The color applies smoothly and leaves lips feeling soft, much like a balm. I have the light pink shade, #184 Merino Mauve and while it is not extremely pigmented the color is subtle and pleasant. I didn't find the color to last long but my lips felt smooth hours after application. I recommend this to those who prefer more sheer lip color.

  • Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

    Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

    Lasts Long But Hard to Apply & Disappointing Color

    Beginning with the positives of this liner, it really does last all day long. Applying this at eight in the morning and coming home to see it looked exactly as it did right after its application I was certainly impressed. The bottle too seems to be lasting fairly long as well without drying out. Now for the negatives. The color is lacking to me. To me, black liquid liner is supposed to be shiny, patent leather black. This one is a very matte black that looks dull to me. In addition, the shape of the tip makes application difficult especially when it comes to making the lines on both eyes identical. When using this, I almost always can see a minor difference and I've never had a problem with liquid liner before so I can only assume its the product.

  • Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Powder

    I had heard the raving reviews about this powder and thought I'd give it a shot and buy one of the tiny jars of it. My skin has never looked so great. You only need less than a dime sized amount so I imagine the actual sized jars last forever. One sweep over your liquid foundation to set, and your face is instantly brightened. Unlike many powders it doesn't settle into fine lines at all and really gives that naturally glowing, airbrushed look. It also stayed put from 8 am. when I applied it until well after 4 pm. And while its pricey, the tiny jar has lasted me 2 months so in the long run its comparable to buying a new cheaper powder every month or so.

  • Sephora Collection Microsmooth Baked Eyeshadow Trio

    I received this eyeshadow trio along with a large sampling fo sephora's "best" products. The trio featured a shimmery brown, a carmel orange and a light pink shade for highlighting. The brown is your typical coffee shade and the highlighter doesn't seem to have much pigment to it. The orange shade is just that, too orange and not coppery or bronze like I'd like. And even with a primer on underneath theses shadows didn't hold up well through a six hour work day. Overall, I'm not impressed and would not buy this separately.

  • Kerastase Chroma Reflect Masque

    I really wanted to like this masque. Kerastase is a great brand I've had good experiences with before but I really noticed no difference from using this product. My hair felt no softer than prior to using it and my color did not look noticeably nicer nor did it stay in tact longer. You'd probably be better off just buying a shampoo or conditioner that doesn't fade color, this purchase felt like a waste of money.

  • Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

    I know this oil has may uses but I've been using it exclusively for my hair, specifically my ends, before blow-drying or smoothing them after straightening and I cannot say enough about how this has changed my hair. I can't remember the last time my formerly fried ends looked this sleek, shiny and not the least bit split. You only need a tiny bit and I could swear I have someone else's hair. Someone who doesn't blow-dry, curl or straighten on a daily basis. I've used other oils before but none of them even compare to this. I'm going to try out its other uses but as of right now I'm hooked on this for my hair! I strongly recommend this product for anyone looking to conceal and treat the hair they've mistreated with heat.
