  • Youngblood Mineral Makeup Youngblood Mineral Primer

    I received this item as a present and I have to say, I wasn't too thrilled by it. It feels like it's a little oily, but then dries really dry very quickly...and I dont see what it does for my skin other than sit on it. It may smooth out my skin just a little bit, but for the most party I dont think this is worth buying or using. It's one of those extra products that does nothing for your face. Much better primers out there (Laura Mercier Radiance = Amazing). I just feel that you are rubbing something that is made of chemicals on your face as a "cover" over your face and never allows the real beauty of your skin to shine through. Not a fan.

  • Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion Q10 Plus

    Bought this lotion by mistake, used it, noticed the difference and THEN looked at the bottle and realized that it was firming. Great lotion for the summer months when you want something refreshing and a little lighter. High recommended.

    Versace Crystal Noir Eau de Toilette Spray

    Very Sexy, Very Bold...One of My Go To's

    This is the absolute classic sexy perfume. It's got the powdery undertone, but starts with such an exotic and mysterious scent that it's just addictive. This may be an older perfume, but they definitely got it right when they created this. Not for the light and airy woman, but for a strong, sexy, confident and bold character...every use.

    Burberry Body Eau de Parfum

    I love...and Guys Seems to Respond

    I've always said that there are some perfumes that will smell delicious to a girl and she will get a lot compliments about...from girls. And then there are perfumes that you like, but don't let...but that get every guy to ask you what you are wearing. This is a guy attracter...hands down. I smelled this scent in magazines for a few months and kept ripping out the samples and smelling to make sure that I really liked it. After four trips to sephora to try it on...I decided that I kept going back so I might as well buy it. It's a fresh scent, but there's something deeply sexy about it...is it a musk? I'm not sure but this is definitely a unique scent. It's also very light...so anyone near you smells wafts of it...but never gets hit with it. Since I bought this scent, I have to say it's gotten quite a bit of attention. I say try it on a few times before making the purchase.

  • Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

    Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

    Love From a Non Loving Lip Color/Pencil Fan

    I'm a nude lip girl...nude or balm. One day I decided that I wanted a red...and on brown skin that can be really hard to do. I had been looking for a red for about 10 years....just because I wanted the Marilyn glamour...and finally I found a red: Dragon Girl. No gloss is needed...it's matte and velvety and stays on forever. (the Nars chubby glossy stick is also amazing). Absolutely love this item and recommend to all. The colors are heavily pigmented and last that way..even through meals, kissing, etc. Love!

    Nars Highlighting Blush Powder

    Universal Highlighter ....Light to Dark Skin Tones

    From looking at this highlighter in the container, one could never guess that it would look good on darker skin tones...but it's completely universal and amazing for all skin tones. I love this and it really gives a great healthy glow without looking too obvious. It's at least worth a try at Sephora...it could be instant love. Don't let the look in the container deceive you.

    Carmex Original Carmex Stick

    Must Have/Cult Classic/Great on the Windiest Days

    I can't say enough good things about this lip balm. I resisted and tried to stay with Chapstick and Softlip for years... but after one use with Carmex cherry, I was hooked. I walk to work every day and even on the windiest coldest day of the year, nothing can penetrate this balm nor does it come off if you lick your lips. It's perfect, everything you want in a moisturizing balm.

  • Clinique All About Eyes
    6.0

    Clinique All About Eyes

    Feels Nice, Keeps Moisture In....But No DePuff or Lightening

    So...the cream feels decadent. And that's sort of why I rated it as high as I did (and I'm a little partial to Clinique). But as far as depuffing or reducing the look of undereye circles, not sure that it works there. I guess it's worth a try ....because sometimes I feel like it works if you are religious in using it for about a month. Very iffy product...and the normal version is much better than the extra rich. Extra rich is way too heavy for anyones eye area. I would say to experiment with cheaper eye creams and get a sample of this from Sephora before investing.

  • Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

    Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

    Instant Reaction, Quick Fix for Rough Nights

    I have dark skin and when I eat a lot of salt or have a rough sleepless night of partying, it can really show through puffiness and darkness. This eye rollerball works instantly to depuff my under eyes and lighten up those circles. At first I thought it was my imagination, so I had a friend watch me use it after a par ticularly rough night...she was amazed. This item with a little bit of concealer will do wonders and for a great price. I have heard that it doesn't work on everyone but I can say that when it works, it totally works and I guess when it doesn't, it's a no go. Worth a try. Love!

  • Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream

    Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream

    Nice Memory, But Needs Updating

    I always loved this cream because it was so refreshing, but that was 15 years ago when I was a teenager. And though every now and then I do enjoy the cooling sensation and joy of reminiscing with this cleanser, I have to say it's an old classic that didn't get updated in the facial cleanser world. It leaves a film and sometimes the minty feel is just a little too strong...can even burn the eyes. Other than that it doesn't really remove make up...especially any mascara/eyeliner. If you used this before and miss it, then stick with it sometimes...but it's like an old lover that isn't the same person anymore. Outgrown this. There's a lot better out there.
