    Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

    Better products for less money

    I did use the entire bottle faithfully, but honestly didn't see any difference. I did notice the odor, though. It's not horrible, but not exactly pleasant either. It goes on fairly well and dries quickly. I just didn't see any improvement in skin tone, clarity or evening out my combination skin. I had more success with other products.

    Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

    This stuff is horrid

    As soon as the rep put this on my skin, it started to burn. I couldn't get it off fast enough. I don't have skin that is overly sensitive either. She had also let me try the eye cream, and that made my eyes burn and water as well. I don't think this is the line for me - I will stick to Clinique, their sister line.

  • REvlon Illuminance Creme Shadow

    I just got this in Copper Canyon and I really like how sheer and blendable the colors are. I can make them more intense by adding on more after each application dries to get as much or as little color as I want, which is perfect for those lazy weekend trips to Starbucks for coffee. I really wish there was an applicator. Easy to remove, makes a great base for other colors, and has good no-crease staying power if you let it dry inbetween applications. Biggest problem? NO applicator.

    Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion

    Love it, but....

    I really love this product, but I hate how fast it seems to dry out in the container. I always make sure to put the top back on tightly, but it still gets dried out and changes color after just a couple of uses. This is not a new phenomenon with this product, but it happened in less than two weeks this time. Did the formula change???

  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils

    Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils

    Love love love love love

    Why did I wait so long to try these pencils from UD? I got Electric (bright blue) as part of a sample program, and it sat in my makeup drawer for months before I worked up the courage to try it on. Even though the shade is shocking, it actually looks great on (fair skin, brown eyes). I got several questions as to what I was wearing and where I got it and many compliments. It applies like silk - just glides on without tugging or little pieces falling off because the pencil is so crumbly. It dries incredibly quickly, so you do have to work fast. You've got enough time to blend before this pencil sets itself in stone. This is the first pencil I've found that lives up to its claim of hour wear. NOTHING will budge the color until you choose to take it off. I love that. No more under eye cleanup or crease blotting during the day to deal with migrating pencil or shadow. No primer is needed when using this either, which helps save a bit of time on rushed mornings. The best part is the range of colors these pencils come in. Everything from daring to demure and they all look amazing on. I've always leaned toward a more neutral or soft makeup style. These pencils have helped me incorporate color in a fun and very wearable way. I luckily got a set of these from Sephora when they first came out and wish I had gotten another set or two. I use as both eyeshado and eyeliner. UD pencils are a bit pricey, usually $18.00 a piece. But for the color payoff, length of wear, color saturation (which means you only need a little for a huge impact) and perfect consistency, you won't go through these like you would a typical eyeshadow/eyeliner pencil. I have some colors that I use daily and after almost a year still have 3-4" left. You really get your money's worth!

  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Lash Boosting Mascara

    I'm glad I bought this when PF was offering a rebate to try this for free. This is by far the worst mascara I've tried in years, and I tried dozens and dozens of brands in my search for my HG mascara. The only reason this got two stars is that it applies very well. After that, it's all downhill. It flakes, it smears, it stinks like chemicals, it smudges, it clumps. Most mascaras dry within seconds, but not this one. It was almost as if the formula had too much oil in it. Even with a primer, this mascara was still a disaster. I had raccoon eyes within 30 minutes. I'm really disappointed in this latest offering from PF. Usually they have pretty good products, but this one needs dire help.

  • Senna Lip Lacquer Long Lasting ‘A' List Favorite

    Never having tried any products from Senna, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by how flattering the color was and how non-sticky the gloss was after application. It also had quite a bit of staying power. I got this in the sample program, and it will definitely be a future purchase.

  • Alterna BAMBOO Smooth Kendi Oil Pure Treatment Oil

    This is my new favorite hair savior. I've used Moroccan Oil for years, and loved how it made my hair feel though it was always a tad on the heavy side. This kendi oil is really lightweight. It does everything Moroccan Oil does, but without adding any weight to my fine hair. My hair stays soft, no strays or flyaways, and has a little extra oomph, even now as we get into the hot and humid summer months. It also smells wonderful and also works as a great non-greasy hand softener in a pinch!

  • Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist

    Using this product requires walking a fine line. Too little and the frizzies are still there. Too much and it looks like your hair hasn't been washed in weeks. It takes some experimenting, but when you find the right amount, frizzies disappear and the shine is amazing. The scent is very delicate, which is nice for a change.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

    After liking Maybelline's Stiletto and Falsies mascaras, I thought I would give this a try. Wow, talk about disappointing. I know that most mascara advertisements are air brushed/photoshopped, but I still wasn't ready for the abysmal performance of this mascara. It applied clumpy right out of the tube with a brush that is less than useful. It dried quicker than most mascaras which made it a pain to separate lashes. By lunchtime it was already smudged and flaking. With all this, you'd think it would be easy to take off. Nope. I went through mulptiple cotton balls soaked in Lancome's eye makeup remover along with a couple eye area specific washes to get this stuff off. I am so glad I saved the receipt for this one as it went right back to the store.
