  • Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Cream Foundation

    This foundation is really good for the price...it goes on smooth and creamy, with awesome coverage, but not too shiny, and it blends super well. It also has a pleasant vanilla-y scent to it. My only gripe is that it doesn't last as long as I'd like...by mid afternoon my nose is all shiny and I need to go powder it. Overall though, good foundation :)

  • Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Moisturizer

    Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Moisturizer

    moisturizing, but feels funky later on...

    I love Neutrogena's lotions and stuff, and I've used this moisturizer off and on in the winter. I like the way it goes on, and I like the smell, but I don't think it absorbs all the way in. It feels like it does right after putting it on, but later in the day I notice that my skin is kind of sticky with it, which is kind of obnoxious. Other than that, pretty good stuff.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Parisienne Eau de Parfum Spray

    Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Parisienne Eau de Parfum Spray

    Mediocre...I hope they don't charge a bunch for it!

    I received this as a sample, which I was stoked about. I thought it smelled pretty yummy in the package, kind of sweet but a little bit woodsy and pretty modern and not too old-lady-ish, and it smells a lot like one of my fave perfumes. Buuuuuut...when I actually wore it, I was disappointed. I sprayed it on a couple of times, but by the time I left the house I couldn't smell it at all. I could smell my deodorant, but not this perfume. I work with a lady who will always compliment you on your new haircut or eyeshadow color or whatever, and I purposefully stood really close to her at one point today to see if she would say anything, and she didn't. So that's when I knew that the total lack of staying power isn't all in my head. The 5 stars are for a fragrance I really enjoy, but -5 because I think you might have to bathe in this stuff for the fragrance to be noticeable, and I just don't have the money for that.

  • Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Conditioner

    I have been using this conditioner, along with the shampoo, for several weeks now. At first I was pretty happy with them, but for the last couple of weeks my hair never seems like it's totally clean. I'm wondering if this conditioner is leaving some funky residue behind, because my hair doesn't look or feel completely clean right after my shower, even though I know I rinsed the crap out of it, and my roots and bangs are also getting greasy wayyy faster. I love the smell and the concept, but something's not working quite right for me.

  • Andis Elevate 1-Inch Digital Nano-Ceramic Flat Iron

    This straightener was recommended to me at Ulta when I asked for something $30 or under that would give me more bang for my buck, and I have not been disappointed. The heat is adjustable so that there is a super wide range of settings, and it heats up crazy fast. It straightens my hair with one pass, and it also has an auto-shutoff which saves me many days of anxiety driving to work wondering if I remembered to turn it off. The only thing about it is that it has a red and green light, and lots of times the red light will be on while the green light is flashing. I have no idea what the lights mean, but it's always hot enough to fix my hair. This straightener rocks :)

  • Vidal Sassoon VS155 Smooth and Healthy Series 2

    This straightener is ok...I find that I have to go over some sections of my hair a few times to get it right. The plates also tend to snag my hair and pull it out sometimes. It doesn't get nearly as hot as other straighteners do, and it doesn't dry wet hair and make it straight. I also wish it had an auto shutoff, because I've forgotten to turn it off a few times, or on the way to work wondered if I remembered and then thought about it all day. Overall, this straightener is nothing special.

  • Biore Daily Cleansing Cloths

    Biore Daily Cleansing Cloths

    alright I guess...

    I bought some of these after I broke my right elbow and was not able to touch my face with that hand, especially to wash it. I love the fresh scent, and I love the fact that they come in a box while most other cloths I've seen do not. But as others have complained, I don't really feel like they get my face totally clean. And after using them for several days straight, my face started to break out a little bit. They're handy for certain things and ok to use in moderation, but nothing to rely on for taking care of your face.

  • Max Factor Lipfinity 3D Maxwear Lip Color

    I was super stoked about this lip color, I bought it in Midori Glam. I thought it would look like the color on the fancy display that shows what it will look like after you apply both coats, like a cool dark pink with some yellow sparkle on top, but it didn't. The yellow sparkly topcoat was invisible over the pink basecoat, so it looked like I didn't even have the topcoat on at all. Also, the pink transferred from my lips onto the wand and into the yellow gloss, and that is one of my biggest pet peeves. To top it off, the resulting pink gloss on my lips didn't last longer than an hour. And it irritated my lips, which are slightly dry all the time. I'm pretty mad I fell for this one.

  • Biolage Colorcaretherapie Color Care Conditioner

    This is the shampoo and conditioner my stepmom uses, and I have to be honest and say that whenever I take a shower over there I totally steal some. The smell is alright, it's a little bright and springy for me, but I LOVE the conditioner because it doesn't weigh down my hair AT ALL...I look in the mirror before blowdrying and my hair has all kinds of cool waves and volume to it, that I actually don't even want to blow my hair straight after using it. I can't really speak to the color protection part just because I use it like twice a year. But it's always a pleasure. :)

  • Coppertone Gradual Tan Moisturizing Lotion

    I tried this self tanner, even for several days in a row, and I have not been able to see that it makes a difference in the color of my skin. I have tried it for weeks on end, alternating days with a regular lotion, and also sometimes for like a week straight with no days off, and I have never seen any color develop. I have had good results with other lotions, so this stuff doesn't cut it for me.
