    Kinerase Cream with SPF 30

    White Streaks, Moisturizing but Greasy

    When I first got a sample of this cream, I loved it...well actually I loved the cream sample and then thought that added spf30 was fantastic. Well, upon buying this one I found that it was much like putting on sunscreen: the grease, the burning in my eyes, the white streaks. So yes, it moisturized but I guess so would a normal sunscreen. The eye burning was probably the worst part: my eyes kept watering and it took me a week or two to realize that there wasn't something wrong with me and it was this moisturizer. I was so turned off by this item that I never went back to the original cream sample that I had received...i was done with this brand though I have always heard good things about it.

  • Sephora Professionnel Kabuki Brush

    I liked this brush...but then I realized that it was depositing too much make up and it wasn't very durable. Not a huge fan and definitely wouldn't use daily. There are better ones at a lower price.

  • Revlon Pointed Tip Tweezer

    Revlon Pointed Tip Tweezer

    Invest in the Tweezerman

    Doesn't grip hair well at all so using these tweezers is very frustrating and time consuming. Also, despite coming with a case they also bend kind of out of shape ....pass on these.

  • Tweezerman Mini Slant

    Tweezerman Mini Slant

    Absolute Best Tweezer

    Even through a rough and somewhat messy make up bag these tweezers never bent and last forever. They get ever single tiny little hair on the first try and the grip is so precise that you can tweeze as quickly and gently as possible. I never knew that the made a tweezer quite so perfect. Love it.

  • Kate Somerville CytoCell Dermal Energizing Treatment

    I couldn't get enough of the sample which I received for this face moisturizer. After stretching it for weeks but not convincing myself that I could invest this much in a face cream I tried to walk away. Then I went to sephora a few weeks later because I just couldn't get this out of my head...I got another two samples. I used them on "special days" and without daily use I still saw that my skin looked extremely great on those day and I had to have it. Eventually I caved and bought it. Im on my fourt jar and it's absolutely amazing. My skin has never been so moisturized and felt so healthy. It's worth every single dime. If you have sensitive skin, maybe this isn't right for you because something is working but if you have normal to dry skin with tight pores in which nothing penetrates well, then definitely get this. This is going to be my favorite forever. I forgot to add...I guess the package has changed because it's sealed and you press the top to get moisturizer out..not a drop is wasted this way, the ingredients have no way of getting bacteria in there and even if you open it when it run out, you will see how efficient this process is.

    La Mer Creme De La Mer

    Not Enough Results to Justify Price

    I bought myself and my sister jars of this "dream" product for Christmas and we had two extremely opposite reactions. She fell in love with this cream and said that she saw immediate amazing results. She raved about how glowing her skin was and how moisturized it could stay all day. It perfected her skin and made her feel absolutely luxurious and amazing all the time. I felt absolutely the opposite way. I thought it was was too thick and therefore didn't absorb into my skin all that much. Yes, my skin was moisturized but no better than other much cheaper moisturizers. I tried it daily for about 2-3 months and then sort of gave up on it. I felt like it left a white residue at time if not really rubbed in and it was a little too waxy or stiff for me. Therefore, she would give this a perfect ten and I would give it a 1. I passed my jar on to her and found Kate Somerville's cyto cell cream afterwards....and all I can say is AMAZZZZZING. My sis also tried some of mine and said it was too thin for her and didn't make her feel luxurious nor did she think it did anything amazing for her skin. So I would not recommend this cream and would say go for the Kate Somerville one instead if you are going to be in this price range. Everyone's skin is different and I guess try a sample of this one before you rule it out.

  • Milani Baked Bronzer

    Milani Baked Bronzer

    Good on Darker Summer Skin

    Though limited in color option, this is still a good product. It definitely works in contouring and doesn't blend into the skin too much. I can't use it on my winter skin (I have medium-dark complexion) and there is no color for that in the line...but I do love it to play up my golden summer tan. Definitely in my seasonal make up items arsenal, but worth buying.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mistake-Proof Marker Eyeliner

    L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mistake-Proof Marker Eyeliner

    Definitely A Marker, Like a Washable Marker

    So, I dont know about he appeal of using a marker on ones eyes...I guess it's that you think of a nice smoky, thick dark line. Definitely not. The marker looks as though it would have this effect but then you put it on and it's light (I got black). Then you try again and the marker makes the line get so thick and messy that you may as well wear black/gray eyeshadow with a rubbed off look. To make matters worse, it is not very forgiving...one mistake and you may well do your whole face over. ok in theory but not in action. no good. Also, not very comfortable to hold. Stick with cream sticks (Maybelline Master Drama) or Liquid (Revlon Color Stay).

    L'Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Eye Liner

    Not For Contacts, But Great Liner

    This liner is a thick,black creamy liner that glides on smooth and looks fantastic...until you can't see anymore because it covers your contacts and blurs out your vision. So, I had to get rid of it. Other than that, I think it's a great product.

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

    L'Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

    I Guess If You Find Your Skin Tone

    I'm pretty disappointed in the whole true match line...i just dont feel like the spectrum is wide enough to match all skin tones nor do I feel like it really blends into the skin. It just sits on it. And this "lumi" foundation gives your skin such and unnatural glow in person and even worse in pictures. I say use a good foundation (Make Up Forever HD Invisible) and then a highlighter..you don't need this "fake glow" all over your face. No one wants to look like you are wearing make up on your skin...and that's what this does.
