  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation

    This product seemed really promising. I was intrigued by the idea of an inexpensive, drugstore mineral foundation. True Match Naturale Foundation, however, was a huge disappointment. Inside the container, the "powder" clumped together to make what looked like little rocks. After smashing the clumps of powder, I managed to brush the powder on my face. Even though mineral foundation is supposed to feel light and provide smooth coverage, I felt like I was brushing flour onto my face and the coverage was inconsistent and streaky. The product also didn't stay on my face AT ALL! Throughout the day, the powder would become dusty and fall from my face to my clothes! As unhappy as I am with the product, I have been mixing the powder with primer to use as a concealer, for the primer helps the powder stick to my face and feel less like flour. I wouldn't recommend this, but there are ways to make this product work. Even though the idea of inexpensive mineral foundation sounds convenient, this foundation doesn't hold a candle to some of the more expensive mineral foundations that I have used.

  • Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara

    I am also very surprised to see so many negative review of this product here. I recently purchased this mascara even though a friend of mine told me that it isn't the longest lasting mascara. I was pleasantly surprised by the product. It coated my lashes without making them clumpy and it lasted all day! My only complaint with Doll Lashes, though, is that it has a bit of a strange smell. The smell isn't terrible, but it is rather "chemical-ly". All in all, this is a great mascara with buildable length, buildable volume, dark color, and staying power. If you aren't easily put off by a weird smell, definitely consider the product (even though it was $28 at a local Ulta store... Expensive!) it works incredibly well with my short, thick lashes and is an overall high quality mascara!

    CARGO Blush

    Fantastic

    This blush is great. It is very pigmented and has a nice shimmer (not sparkle!!!). This blush makes my skin look glowing and dewey. The product is easy to blend with foundation and bronzer. I received a sample size of this product, but I can gladly say that I will purchase it again. I would highly recommend this blush.

  • Smith's Rosebud Salve

    Smith's Rosebud Salve

    Nice Smell, Nice Color

    Smith's Rosebud Salve isn't chalky and waxy like most lip balms. It's very smooth, and can be put on very lightly or very heavily. The salve smells great and the product gave my lips a great peachy tint. One of my favorite products ever, Rosebud Salve is a multipurpose product that can also be used on elbows, cuticles, and eyelids (I sometimes put on a thin layer to give my eyelids a little shimmer and glow). This salve is a great buy, and the can is a decent size. My Rosebud Salve lasted me a good 3 months before I ran out, and I could easily go back to the "to go" isle of Sephora and buy a million more!

  • Orly Nail Lacquer
    10.0

    Orly Nail Lacquer

    Orly is the best!

    Orly Nail Polishes are fantastic! The color is very thick, and the metallic teal color I use only needs 2 coats until it looks pristine. These nail polishes are very durable, and it takes Orly nail polish MUCH LONGER to chip than many other brands, which I love. My Orly nail polish is my very favorite, and I have tried a wide range of nail polishes. This brand of nail polish is a must-buy! The quality of the product is splendid - the nail polish is shiny, long-lasting, and very pigmented. 5 star product!

  • L'Oreal Paris Healthy Look Creme Gloss Color

    I dyed my hair once with this product, and when I went to target I picked out the "5CB Chestnut Brown" color. The color looked like a rich, warm brown on the box, but when I put it in my dark blonde hair, the dye turned purple! After rinsing the purple goop out of my hair, I was surprised to see a bright orange that lasted for a very long time!!! The color may seem temporary but the orange tone stayed in my hair for a few months until I went to a salon to "fix" it!

  • Stila Perfect & Correct Foundation

    This is the perfect foundation. It's not cheap, but the quality of the product is really wonderful. The foundation has a mixed in primer, and the coverage is light but buildable. One of my favorite things about this product is the glow it gives my skin - it doesn't make my skin shiny, but doesn't make it matte either. Stila is also one of the only brands to get my skin color "right". While most brands have an off-white ivory tone and then step up to a "light" color (which is much too dark for my pale skin), this foundation's "fair" is the perfect color for my skin. I love this foundation, and I can put on a thin layer for everyday, and a few layers for a dramatic, super-smooth look. I would recommend this foundation for anyone with bumpy, oily skin because this foundation, unlike many others, was easy to remove with makeup remover and didn't clog my pores. Thank you Stila for creating the perfect foundation shade and a wonderful product that I can use for any occasion.

    MAC Zoom Lash

    Great Mascara!

    My favorite mascara - I have dark, thick, but short eyelashes, and this mascara makes my eyelashes really long and not clumpy at all. 5 star product!
