Here are all my reviews:
  • Chanel Brillance Pur Sheer Brilliance

    I have to give it up to Chanel on this one. I have purchased this product in "sunkissed" for years and shall continued to do so regardless of price. The formulation and color are genius. I have oily skin and have no problem using this product, even in the summer. It is extremely versatile and works equally well on face and body. I have dark brown skin and this looks fabulous whether applied directly to my skin or mixed with foundation (Prescriptives Transparency). I also apply it under my eye area where it adds light and minimizes shadows. This product provides the right amount of shimmer and my skin looks luminous and younger.

  • AmLactin XL Moisturizing Lotion

    AmLactin XL Moisturizing Lotion

    Cannot Compare to Amlactin Moisturizing Lotion (12% Lactic Acid)

    I absolutely adore Amlactin Moisturizing Lotion (12% Lactic Acid) and had such high hopes for this product, which is much pricier. In terms of softening, hydrating and evening out my skin tone, there was no comparison. Amlactin XL Moisturizing Lotion is ineffective on my skin. This was a big waste of money.

  • AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion
    10.0

    AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion

    Best OTC Lactic Acid Lotion

    This lotion is excellent for smoothing, hydrating and evening out rough, dry and discolored skin. The cream version works equally well. I've tried 15% glycolic acid lotions and I prefer this because it is more moisturizing and works better on body skin. I am dark-skinned and this is the most effective product for addressing hyperpigmentation and ashiness in people of color. Best of all, it works quickly. Even old scars and stretch marks look better. My skin is even toned, hydrated and just glows. I always receive compliments from men and women on how beautiful my body skin is. I have never recommended this product to someone who did not rave over the results. It performs as well as the prescription Lac-Hydrin 12. Honestly, in terms of effectiveness and price, it is impossible to beat this product.

  • DERMAdoctor Physical Chemistry Facial Microdermabrasion + Multiacid Chemical Peel

    This is the best at-home microdermabrasian product I have ever used. It removes tons of dead and flaking skin without leaving my face raw and blistered. I use it often with no irritation. Because of its formulation, it is impossible to over do it. That said, I gave this product an "8" because it too expensive for such a small size and it is a bit of a strech to refer to it as a chemical peel. It is an exfoliator. This product is good enough to purchase again, but I would do so on discount websites.

  • Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper

    Maybe I am from the drag queen school of beauty, but this is not my idea of volume. I want lashes so thick they look fake. In the past, I have obtained that look by using Chanel, Lancome, Borghese, YSL and Christian Dior mascaras. All this did was define and slightly darken and lengthen my eyelashes. I was almost speechless over the unimpressive results. It cannot even hold a candle to that old war horse L'oreal Voluminous mascara (original).

  • Avon Supershock Mascara
    1.0

    Avon Supershock Mascara

    Complete Waste of Money

    If your idea of volume is thick and dense eyelashes, a "fake eyelash" look, this is not the mascara for you. I got this at half price during a sale and still feel I got ripped off. There was no volume to speak of, just mediocre defining. Also, the black color is not pigment rich. I've always though Avon mascaras were crap and this one is no exception. Chanel, YSL & Christian Dior, here I come.

  • Prescriptives Traceless Skin Responsive Tint

    This is the only foundation I have used for almost ten years. No pefect match needed because the product actually adjusts to your skin color, which eliminates mistakes and frustration. I hated foundation until this product. It is absolutely weightless, nontransferable and suitable for oily skin. It is truly unique and worth every penny.

  • Avon ULTRA COLOR RICH Lipstick

    Avon ULTRA COLOR RICH Lipstick

    Excellent Lipstick

    Honestly, for the price point, coverage and range, it is hard to beat this product. I love spending money on high end makeup, but it is not always necessary. I have spent tons of money on lipsticks from Chanel, Christian Dior, YSL, MAC, Lancome, etc., but have yet to come across a better red wine color than Avon's Cherry Jubilee. It is the best wine for dark skin.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Volume Effet Faux Cils

    Money is no object when it comes to my lashes. I had such high hopes for this product, but found it lacking in terms of volume. It lenghtened exceptionally well, but my lashes are already long. I want tons of volume to give me the truly "fake eyelash" look I crave, but have always had to use multiple products to create. This is supposed to be a volumizing mascara. For that and the price point, it falls short.

  • Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara

    This mascara is great if you are afraid of makeup. Personally, I was bored. It adds no volume whatsoever and any lenghtening is barely perceptible. All it does is darken and define and any drugstore brand can do that.
