    CoverGirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation

    Not horrible, but won't repurchase

    This is a very moisturizing foundation with some pros and even more cons. Pros: It covers my whole face in one pump, it's full coverage, it blends in well Cons: No sunscreen which means adding more moisture to my face before applying, minor breakouts, color would match my skin if it had more pink undertones - it makes me look sickly and pale without a lot of bronzer, It comes of easily with a little sweat, it's heavy and you feel it on all day. I would love to find a foundation that covers as well as this one does, but without all the cons. I have combination/sensitive fair skin. The lack of sunscreen it not good, and the even though the breakouts are minor and almost not noticeable, they are still breakouts. I may try this again in the winter and see how it fairs. This may work better on people with yellow undertones and who have dry skin. There are no real anti-aging benefits, just moisture. I can't really recommend it for oily or combination skin.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Crystal Shadow Duo

    I have three of these. They are great for a quick and easy eye look. They are not as pigmented as I was hoping for, but that may be due to the amount of shimmer and glitter. There is some fallout when applying this product. They do look very pretty on thought and the two colors always match each other well. If it's a bit too shimmery, try mixing them with a matte color. I saw they do make the hip duos in matte as well, though I have yet to try them. I haven't used them wet, but I will as I think it will add more intensity. Stay away from these if you don't want the glitter, but I am glad I purchased a few as they are just too pretty not to have in my collection.

  • TRESemme Vitamin B12 & Gelatin Anti-Breakage Shampoo

    I got a sample of this shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo made my hair feel stringy and gross. No moisture at all, which is what I find really helps keep my hair from being damaged. I think I had more hair break off using this sample. The condition was bad too. I used the whole packet at once and there was no de-tangling or softening at all. Don't buy.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder

    I though this was another hyped up product. Well, I finally bought it and now I know why! It's a great light color that looks natural and blends easily into the skin. You can't beat the price. The compact is a little hard to open, but that is a minor package flaw. I can contour with this and use it all over for a barely there bronzed look, or I can build it up without looking unnatural. Terrific buy at a great price!

  • Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder

    I finally bought myself the translucent powder everyone raves about. It's a great all over powder that gives a nice glow. It's not too shinny like a regular highlighting powder. You can actually put it all over with a light dusting and it looks great. Applying some over matte blush gives just a little more glow. I can see why everyone loves it. I don't know about the mood boosting properties - I think that's just hype, but it is a great powder and the hearts make it a fun product!

  • Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Blush

    When I saw this product I thought it doesn't look like much at all. It's kind of boring to look at and there didn't seem to be anything special about it. I kept seeing people rave about it on YouTube. I finally bought it and though ok, what's all the fuss about this boring looking blush... Well, when I put it on, it was a beautiful pop of color without being too much. It's great with my fair skin. It's like the perfect rosy pink and it is matte. I never thought in a million years such a boring looking blush would look so great on. I now see why it is so popular. This is one of my new favorites!

  • Maybelline New York Color Plush Silk Eyeshadows

    These are touted all over YouTube. I just bought two on a BOGO sale. The two I picked up were new ones. They have tons of shimmer/glitter and very little color payoff. When I swatched them on my hands they looked gorgeous, but on my eyes they are bland and boring. Too subtle and shinny for what I expected. Don't buy into the hype. You can get great eye shadow for much less. I am going to play around with them more instead of returning them because the colors are nice when concentrated. But I wouldn't purchase them again.

  • LORAC Lips with Benefits Lip Gloss

    I love the fun way that this gloss is packaged. It is a nice smooth lip gloss. A little thick and a tiny bit tacky, but not annoyingly so. It doesn't last through a lot which is why I took one star off. I do love the smell - kindof a vanilla smell. It doesn't taste which is good. My hair doesn't stick to it which is also good. Because of the twisted color nature of the way the gloss is packaged, you really don't know what the color is until you put it on. It is very moisturizing and feels good. I like to use it alone, but would be great over lipstick. I think this is a great lip gloss. It lives up to it's rather pricey brand.

  • LORAC Visual Effects Mascara

    LORAC Visual Effects Mascara

    Could have been good

    I think this mascara is good, but I have to use a different wand to get it to work. It apply's ok and looks nice. The formula is not to wet. The wand however ruins the whole mascara for me. It doesn't apply evenly, it is super messy to use and does nothing to help achieve a nice full look. If they changed the wand to something better, I would give it a higher score.

  • CoverGirl Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara

    At the start, this mascara reminded me of my favorite tarte mascara. It was smooth, applied nicely, not to much product on the wand, and it dried nicely. After a few weeks of use, I noticed it would be tacky later in the day if I touched my eyelashes. It also started to apply more gooily. (not a word, I know). It seemed as it thickened it was more tar like than mascara like. Seeing as I rate mascara's on how they perform from start to finish of a tube, and I couldn't get halfway through this one before I hated it, I would say pass on this. There are better mascaras out there, and some of them are in the same price range.
