Here are all my reviews:
  • Shiseido Makeup Nourishing Mascara Base

    Given the glowing reviews, I am the odd man out. To me, this base is not worth the money or aggravation. It added no discernible volume, which was the whole point, and was a nightmare to remove. I have never spent so much time trying to remove my mascara, which is not waterproof, at night. Maybe, an oil-based eyemakeup remover would work better, but I just was not impressed by the product. It is not better than Origins "Underwear for Eyelashes," which added volume and was easy to remove. Save your money and invest in a really good volumizing mascara insstead.

  • Avon Clearskin Invigorating Cleansing Scrub

    This product is invigorating in smell and that's about it. It's better than most mass retail exfoliators, but cannot compare to exfoliators made by cosmepharmaceutical companies. It did only a "so so" job of exfoliating dead/flaking skin and I found it to be rather gritty and irritating.

  • Avon Clearskin Cleansing Pads

    I didn't find these pads to be any different from what's available in the stores. Despite the claims, it did nothing for blackheads. I actually prefer one type of Stridex Medicated Pads, which deep clean without alcohol and are a much larger size.

    mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color

    Limited Color Range Unsuitable for Dark Skin

    I buy a few products from Avon and I really wanted to like this product. Unfortunately, the color range is extremely limited and there are almost no options for women of color. These colors are not vibrant nor are they pigment rich. I ordered the darkest color, which still fell short. If you're white or afraid of color, this is the lipstick for you.

  • Shiseido The Makeup Lip Liner Pencil

    I am no fan of Shiseido makeup, but I got hooked on the "wine haze" lipliner years ago. I believe it's been discontinued, but I stocked up on strawberrynet. It is simply the perfect wine lipliner. It has no trace of brown, purple or burgundy. It is a dark blue-based red, which looks fabulous on dark skin and complements all of my lipsticks nicely, especially "cherry jubilee" from Avon.

  • NeoCutis Bio-gel Bio-Restorative Hydrogel

    After years of relying on Retin-A, Cellex-C vitamin C creams and chemical peels, I thought I would step up my game with this product. It came highly recommended as the second generation of human growth factor and an effective means of building up the skin. After two and a half months of use, I notice no difference. Granted my skin is already very beautiful (firm, even toned, glowing and unlined), but I hoped this product would add some additional benefit. Considering the price, I expected more.

  • Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Needs More Volume

    I went nuts for this mascara when it first came on the market. I added it to my arsenal of mascara, which included selections from Lancome, Chanel and Borghese. I am all about drama when it comes to eye makeup and my goal is huge fake looking lashes. I purchased Diorshow again before a trip and realized it no longer did it for me..... not enough volume. Honestly, despite the price, I don't think it does more than L'Oreal Voluminous (original).

  • MD Forte Skin Rejuvenation Eye Cream

    Until I came across this product, I had yet to use an eye cream that justified its cost. I have been using this for about five weeks. My eye area seems firmer and smoother. A small dark patch near my eye has mostly faded. So far, I have gotten better results than with the more expensive RevaleSkin Replenishing Eye Therapy. I love the fact that this eye cream is oil free and light. It disappears into the skin quite nicely with no greasy residue. However, I do wish this eye cream had a higher percentage of retinol and contained Vitamin C in the form of l-ascorbic acid. That said, for the money and results, it's hard to beat this product.

  • Ulta Eye Shadow
    10.0

    Ulta Eye Shadow

    Great Alternative to Expensive Eyeshadow

    I usually prefer high-end eye makeup to the cheaper brands. Yet, I have to admit that in terms of color range, formulation, pigment intensity and wear, Ulta eyeshadows are just as good as MAC and better than Bobbi Brown, Stila and many other brands. I don't feel like I'm "slumming" and sacrificing quality to save a few bucks.

  • Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder

    I have purchased Guerlain bronzers in various colors for the past 15 years. My favorite is "secret gold." As a black woman, I already have a "permanent tan." Nonetheless, I use bronzer because it brings out the gold and bronze undertones in brown skin. Bronzer is so much more flattering than face powder, which is matte, dull and aging. Guerlain colors are very believable with the right amount of shimmer. My skin looks luminous. This product pairs very nicely with my favorite liquid bronzer: Chanel Sheer Radiance in "sunkissed."
