    Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

    Too much shimmer...

    I'm more of a matte lip girl, and bought this in watermelon, thinking that it would be a good substitute for something heaver. I don't know if the color was just wrong, or there's too much shimmer, but it just wasn't for me. Nice feel on the lips, but also felt a little grainy. I won't buy another

  • Laura Geller Clarify & Highlight Double-ended Eye Pencil

    I bought this double ended pencil after reading a review somewhere or another. One side is a concealer shade used on the lower waterline, the other side is a white-gold highlighter for the inner corner and under the browbone. WOW! It really makes my eyes look wide-awake, just like the review promised. Comes with it's own sharpener. I'll buy again, even if it's almost 20$

  • Sephora Eyebrow Pencil

    Sephora Eyebrow Pencil

    Just the right color

    I had been using something quite a bit darker in a powder, and wasn't really happy with how my brows looked. I have a couple of sparse areas thanks to scars obtained when I was a kid (fell off a brick wall--ouch). This Sephora pencil in 01 is a lot lighter than I would have bought, but once the SA applied it, I was amazed. It's almost a dark blonde, but does a very good job of filling in my brunette brows very naturally. It also lasts all day. It has a neat little cap with a brow brush, which I don't use, since I use a brow gel, but I can see it would definitely be useful.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara

    Love it!! I have small, deep-set eyes, and waterproof mascara is a must, to keep it from smudging all over the place. This separates my lashes (love the brush), and doesn't flake or clump. Minus one star for the gigantic brush--I'd like to see the same kind of brush, but a little smaller. Make sure you get some serious remover--this stuff isn't the easiest to get off (but soooo worth it!) **Update--I am so over this mascara--it's just too darned hard to remove, even with oil based remover. I'm afraid I'm going to damage my lashes.**

  • Revlon Colorstay 12 Hour Eye Shadow Quad
    8.0

    Revlon Colorstay 12 Hour Eye Shadow Quad

    Couldn't beat the price!

    I found this quad in 01-Sundown at Big Lots, for $2.00US. How cool is that?? It's VERY similar to some Estee Lauder single shadows that I have, except it lasts SO much longer. I can put it on at 6:30, and it's still going strong when I take my makeup off at 5pm. I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for more of these at Big Lots--I'd like something in a violet/gray quad. Definite re-buy

  • Estee Lauder Tender Blush
    9.0

    Estee Lauder Tender Blush

    Nude Rose is my Perfect Color!

    I bought this after having a makeover at the counter. It looks pretty highly pigmented in the pan, and more mauve-y than I would normally go for. You don't have to use much, and I am amazed how it just blends right in. I use an angled blush brush to apply. There's VERY little shimmer to this, which is a high point for me. I'm more of a matte kinda gal.

  • Boots No7 Soft and Soothe Toner
    8.0

    Boots No7 Soft and Soothe Toner

    Definitely Soothing

    After much searching, I decided to go with this toner because it's alcohol-free. My skin is dry, and I rarely break out (once every couple of months, maybe). I wanted something gentle, and this toner does the trick. My face doesn't feel dry after using, just refreshed. The pump allows you to get just the right amount on a cotton ball, rather than risking a soaking with a toner that doesn't have a pump. I'll buy again!

  • Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser
    9.0

    Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser

    Thinking about buying

    I got this as a sample at Sephora, and I loved it. My skin felt much smoother after. I don't know about the reduction of fine lines and all that, because I only used it the one time. It's pricy, so I don't know if I'd buy. I'm going to give it more thought. Easy to use packaging

  • Olay Oil Minimizing Toner

    I used this for about a month, and it's a nice, light, non-astringent toner. Can't beat the price! I have a bottle at work for little touchups, too.

  • L'Oreal Paris Superior Preference

    I've tried a lot of the L'Oreal products, and this is my favorite for a multitonal brunette. Good stuff.
