  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel

    I have oily/acne prone skin and had been using clinique bar soap for years. The problem was it could be too drying, I tried this product out on a lark. At first I was skeptical because it does not foam. After about a week of use I could really tell a difference. My skin is much smoother and has a glow without adding any oil. For me, I have finally struck a balance between moisture and oil control. It really removes my make up well-but I do still need eye makeup remover for my mascara.

  • Benefit BADgal Lash

    Like other reviewers, I really like the dense brush. It truly makes a difference in application for me. My lashes are dark and curly, I am looking for volume in my mascaras. I can't say that BADgal had any noticiable effects. On the positive side, it didn't clump. Mostly, I was disappointed with the flaking. Every time I wore this, I ended up with mascara flakes under my eyes and on my cheeks. For my $$ there are better products for less.

  • CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain

    CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain

    Not for the long-haul

    I was disappointed with this product. I realize it is inexpensive, but for an "outlast" product I expected it to be long wearing. I reapply this stain as much as any lipstick or gloss. Like any other lip stain, it is not hydrating and I wear this with a balm. I won't buy this again.

  • Queen Helene Cholesterol Hair Conditioning Cream

    The good: I didn't spend a fortune. The bad: It was very messy, did not have a pleasing smell, was difficult to rinse out of my hair, did not soften my dry hair, my hair was dull, limp, and greasy. I have medium- thick wavy hair which needs extra conditioning due to highlighting and heat styling and I was disappointed in this as I normally like Queen Helene products.

  • Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

    This is an inexpensive product that works! I have normal skin with the occasional breakout and use this once a week. It feels cool and soothing yet also tight. Afterwards my skin is so smooth, soft, and even toned. If I have a blemish, I put a little on overnight and it dries it up! Highest recommendation.

  • Stila Lip Glaze
    6.0

    Stila Lip Glaze

    Worth the hype?

    The good: This is the most resiliant gloss I've ever tried. I love the color (black cherry for me) and if the applicator cooperates, it can be layered for intensity. Bonus: The sweet smell. The bad: The applicator is inconsistent, the gloss often comes out in a mess and I seem to wind up using a q-tip to get it out of the cap. If I didn't like how black cherry looked on me so dang much I wouldn't bother otherwise.

  • Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation
    9.0

    Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation

    Gives a great dewy look

    This is my go to foundation for everyday. I have a rosy skin tone and this gives me the appearance of an even, glowy complexion. It has a sheen, but is not glittery so it washes off nicely. It is lightweight and blends into my skin. The only drawback for me is it does not have SPF. I would not recommend it for those who prefer a matte look or need extra coverage for blemishes though.

  • Redken Ringlet 07 Curl Perfecting Lotion

    I have medium-thick, naturally wavy hair. When I use this product, it does not make my hair feel either sticky or hard; the results are loose, manageable curls. I don't need more than a quarter-sized dab. The scent is light, and pleasant enough.

  • Rimmel London Extra Super Lash Mascara

    The price is virtually unbeatable! This is long lasting, does not smudge, but yet wipes away clean. Easy to layer, no clumps!

  • MAC Select Cover-Up

    I have tried this product in peach on my entire eyelid and undereye area. Overall, I was satisfied with the overall brightening of my eye area. I was disappointed because it feels chalky and flaked up under my eyes.
