  • Clinique Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher

    The pigment in this blush is not "sheer" but rather nonexistant. I have been a fan of Clinique for over 15 years, but this product was not my favorite. I purchased this in Totally Tawny which is suggested for fair skin which I have. Unfortunately, I could not tell I had anything on. In my mind I think I was just expecting more from a department store blush. Unfortunately, I threw out the box and can't even return it. On the plus side, like all Clinique products, it is fragrance free and great for sensitive skin.

  • Rimmel London BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup SPF 25

    I have always bought foundation at a department store; seems like everytime I bought foundation at a drugstore, it left my skin oily or caused breakouts. This product is actually a BB cream, which in my personal opinion, I think this type of product is overhyped. However, there are just days when a girl needs a bit of coverage, but something more sheer so I decided to give this a try. It was around $6 which is a great pricepoint for this. It is surprisingly rich and very little is needed. In fact, I use less of this product than I do of my foundation. The coverage is excellent; I cannot stress that enough. It is actually not quite as sheer as I expected but I ended up just loving it. I bought it in Light and was so impressed with the shade and tone; it looked like it was made for my skin. I will definitely continue to purchase. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was their advertised claim that it mattifies; I did not experience that but wish I had! My skin is combo oily and I need all of the oil control I can get.

  • Nars Lip Gloss

    Nars Lip Gloss

    A tad disappointing....

    I normally do not spend this much on a lipgloss, but here I am! I was trying to find a dupe for Turkish Delight and just couldn't so I ended up splurging. The first thing I noticed was that not much product comes out; I had to dip the applicator in a few times to get enough product. The second thing I noticed was that the applicator itself was rough and just not comfortable on my lips. The third thing was thst the gloss smells and tastes like plastic. Out of all 3 issues, that one is the worst! It went away about 20 minutes later but was not pleasant in the meantime. On the plus side, the gloss is shiny, smooth and not sticky. The color turned out to be beautiful on my skin tone but I will not be buying this one again. If anyone has a dupe suggestion, let me know.

  • E.L.F. Zit Zapper

    E.L.F. Zit Zapper

    Wow wow wow!

    This is my new favorite product! I used to buy another brand at a department store for just about 20x the price, when I came across this little beauty and I am so glad I did! My skin is pretty clear but I tend to get small, underground pimples on my cheeks. This is a salicylic acid product (I can't remember if it is 1% or 2%; it is listed on the package) which is the #1 ingredient that is recommended the most for any type of blemish. I roll it on in the morning and at night, and I have not experienced any peeling or discomfort. I started to see results the next day; they were considerably smaller and less red. This is a bargain for a dollar; run, don't walk! :)

  • First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

    First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

    Pricey little miracle!

    I was shopping at Sephora the other day and they were handing out samples of this body cream. I had never heard of the brand before and admittedly I don't have sensitive skin or exceptionally dry skin. However, I was impressed. It is a rich and creamy body cream and would work well on elbows, hands, feet and pretty much anywhere. Even though it is fragrance free there is a subtle smell to it but it isn't unpleasant at all. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is the price point of the product, but considering where I was shopping, what could I expect? :)

  • Pond's Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes

    I wasn't impressed but probably wouldn't buy again. I didn't like the texture or the holes in the cloth, and even though my skin is oily combination it felt dry to me instead of comfortable. I bought this pack to keep in my nighstand, but I have tried other brands that were better.

    E.L.F. Brightening Eye Color

    Love ELF, but not this!

    Love the colors and of course the price, but the pigment was really poor. I just about had to grind my eyeshadow brush into the palette and still nothing. I have loved some of their other products, but this one was definately love lost!

  • Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

    Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

    FANTASTIC product; fantastic price!

    I bought this product at Walmart for under $5 and I was uber impressed. This product can easily compete with any high-end exfoliator. I tried this in Coconut Lime and it was heavenly! The first thing I experienced was the fragrance; it smelled like a true and authentic coconut lime instead of that fake, heavy, synthetic perfume smell. The ingredient list was pretty natural and it is not oil based which means no slipping in the tub or scrubbing the ring. You can use it with a loofah, brush or glove; the granules are concentrated enough to use alone or with another product. I did not think it was rough at all, but i use exfoliators often; it did not irritate my skin and i use on my body and feet. I would definitely recommend and I will be continuing to buy. :)

  • Pantene Pro-V Normal-Thick Hair Solutions Flowing Body Mousse

    I purchased this mousse probably 6 months ago and came across it in my vast collection of beauty products. I was using a curl cream to let my hair air dry but I needed a little bit more control so I scrunched about an egg sized dollop into my wet hair and it was just what I needed! I considered using 2 dollops but the can said it was a strong BUT flexible hold so I did not want to overdue it but now I know that I probably can as I found it to be a nice hold with perfect flexibility; I was not looking for my hair to be crunchy or weighed down. I also put it on my roots before I do a blowout and it works well. I have used other mouses before that seem good for just one thing; volume, curls, etc. This one is very versatile which I like. It is also not overly sticky in my hands which makes it so much nicer when applying. I would definitely recommend. Oh, and btw I have long, thick, wavy hair.

  • Avon Silicone Glove Spring Hand Cream

    My mom bought this for me and it is just okay. The smell is not that great and the texture is strange, almost sticky. I do not want a lotion that is oily, but rather creamy over sticky. I am a huge lotion girl all year round, and frankly there are a lot better options out there that are more readily available.
