  • EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm
    6.0

    EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    Good, but not spectacular

    I was intrigued by this balm and after hearing the raves, I had to give it a try. While I do love the shape, and prefer balms with a big base for application, I was expecting a little more moisture/healing power from a so-called "medicated" balm. The scent is nice, although has a hint of medicine to it, and it feels good on my lips, but the lasting power is less than average. EOS, please improve your formula, and I will be a faithful customer of your balm!

  • Maybelline New York Define-a-Lash Waterproof Lengthening Mascara

    It defines and it is waterproof - they aren't lying. While I wish this mascara added more volume, it is a decent day mascara that does not clump and has a nice amount of pigment.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

    I love this mascara. The brush/formula make it easy to build for a dramatic look, which I love. Flaking can be a bit of an issue but if you're looking for a night on the town mascara, give this one a whirl.

  • Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara

    Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara

    Good mascara, but I've used better

    After all of the raves over this mascara, I had to give it a whirl. I've been using it almost daily for the past month, and I have to say, I've had better. The pros: Highly pigmented, lasts all day with minimum smearing/flaking, good brush for reaching all lashes. The cons: takes forever to dry, hard to build on for a more dramatic look, doesn't curl/lengthen very well. An additional con that bugs me but may not be a big deal for some is that the labeling smears off within two weeks of use, which is a bummer since the tube is quite cute.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub
    7.0

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub

    Good smell, cleans well, not enough exfolients

    I have combo skin which suffers from some occasional blemishes. While this is a thorough cleanser that smells lovely and leaves my skin feeling clean, I wish there were more exfoliates so that I could have a better scrubbed feeling.

  • Revlon PhotoReady Powder

    Revlon PhotoReady Powder

    Decent powder, looks nice

    I've been searching for a perfect powder that I don't have to pay $$$ for - this one is decent, but not exactly perfect. I immediately chucked the brush that this powder came with, and used a small makeup sponge instead, which works infinitely better with this powder. The power looks very light at first, but then does blend in with the skin after a while. It is a fairly long-lasting powder, and definitely takes care of shine, two major pluses in my book. Also, the powder itself will last you a while - I've been using it every day for a month and I haven't made a dent in it, so you will get more than $10 worth of use out of it.

  • Alba Rainforest Hydrating Oil Control Moisturizer

    Alba Rainforest Hydrating Oil Control Moisturizer

    Does not leave oil, hydrates well

    Been using this moisturizer for about a month now, and I have been fairly impressed overall. Very convenient pump and container that is both sanitary and easy to use. The moisturizer itself has a pleasant smell, goes on smooth (not too thick or thin) and soaks in the skin in a small amount of time. My face does feel moisturized after use and skin does not appear greasy. A quality product!

    China Glaze Crackle

    Great product - works great!

    I bought this in black and can't wait to pick up a bottle of the silver glaze. Makes your favorite nail polish look very interesting. Only one reason I didn't give this 10 stars - this doesn't work too well on small toenails, works best for manicures.

  • Goody Ouchless Cushion Brush - Medium-Thick Hair
    10.0

    Goody Ouchless Cushion Brush - Medium-Thick Hair

    Will never buy another hairbrush again

    I fell in love with this hairbrush many years ago, and when I found them at the 99 cent store I made sure to stock up - and I have never bought a hair brush again. The first one I ever bought had JUST started to wear down enough where I might consider throwing it out - but not quite yet. I have thick hair that I cried through detanglings as a child, but never have since getting this brush. I am not exaggerating when I say that there is no other hairbrush like this series!

    Orly Won't Chip

    Does what it says

    In addition to preventing pealing, this is a great nail strengthener. Although my nails did chip somewhat, it was probably because I didn't reapply within 2 days of initially painting my nails - if you are faithful in reapplying, your nails should last at least a full week.
