  • Julep Nail Vernis
    6.0

    Julep Nail Vernis

    Overall not bad.

    I find that Julep polishes are hit and miss. They have wonderful colors, but sometimes you get a creme that is a perfect consistency, has the flat brush for better application, then you get different creme color with the round brush, it's thick and applies horribly. I have an earlier metallic pink that leaves silver streaks where the brush overlaps during application and I have later metallics that apply wonderfully. The glitters so far have been decent. not too little or too many glitter chunks. They have a wide variety of colors. I just wish their formulas (and brush style) were more consistent.

  • Laura Geller Balance N Brighten Color Correcting Foundation

    One star off because it's so pricey. I really love this - I wish they would make more kits with the other colors as kits are the way to go with these kinds of brands. I use fair and it's so hard to find sometimes when I want it in a kit to save money. Medium is too dark no matter how much they tout that it fits all skin tones... It really does correct and even out. I use it over foundation and you can use a smaller dense brush to really concentrate it. I tend to use a fluffy powder brush though for a nice even light coverage. Awesome stuff.

  • Julep Essential Cuticle Oil
    6.0

    Julep Essential Cuticle Oil

    Decent cuticle oil

    I need to keep my cuticles hydrated as they dry out fast. I think this oil is ok at keeping them hydrated, but I find I have to apply often. It's handy with a nice rollerball applicator, but the glass bottle makes me want to leave it at home. If they had plastic like their Reveal serum, it would be better. I do like the smell and it does soak in pretty fast.

  • Julep Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum

    I saw the pictures on the site, showing nail improvement. I received this product in a maven box and got excited as my nails are thin and split easily. I used this product daily for a over a month and I did not notice any difference in my nails. They are still weak and they still split.

  • Prestige Shadow Duo

    Prestige Shadow Duo

    Terrific shadows

    I bought one of these for a quick, in a hurry look. I have liked the one color eyeshadows for awhile. I love the texture and they have some unique colors and color combinations. I think this whole brand is often overlooked. I really enjoy the pigmentation and smoothness. A great drugstore eyeshadow. The downside is the lack of color range.

  • Prestige Eye Shadow
    8.0

    Prestige Eye Shadow

    Great pigmentation

    I love the eyeshadows from Prestige. I bought my first one from the supermarket when I spotted the dark bronze. I have since purchased more and the darker the color the more careful you have to be. They are so pigmented and they are smooth. They apply nicely, with minimal fallout. The only downside is that they don't have a huge selection of colors. These are great drugstore eyeshadows that I think often get overlooked.

  • Burt's Bees Lip Stash Pack
    9.0

    Burt's Bees Lip Stash Pack

    Can't have enough backups

    I Love the burts bees lip balm (original). I use it every night to protect my lips from drying out. The beeswax really puts a nice seal on your lips and you don't get that yucky layer of goop when you wake up in the morning like with other lip products. I love the minty smell and taste. It feels nice and cool on the lips. This pack is perfect for those who really love this balm.

  • Burt's Bees Tips n' Toes Hand & Feet Kit

    For an all natural solution to a great travel kit, I always like the burt's bee's brand. Their lotions with the beeswax protects your skin even when wet. The banana lotion smells great and I am not a huge banana lover. The cuticle balm is terrific and I love the lemon scent. Used regularly it really leaves your cuticles in great condition. The pumice stone is ok for a natural way to smooth calluses, but I find that sometimes they leave lines in the skin (like scratches). The foot lotions they make are terrific, especially when paired with nice cotton socks. I also always have the regular lip balm on hand. I love the minty coolness and the beeswax formula keeps my lips from drying out as I sleep at night. Overall, I highly recommend this kit or any of their kits. The sizes are perfect for your purse of travel.

  • Mary Kay TimeWise Repair Eye Renewal Cream

    I had the fortunate opportunity to try the Mary Kay TimeWise Repair Eye Cream. I have been using it since I got it and find that it is a very nice eye cream. It's got a nice thick consistency without being goopy or too thick. It smooths on nicely and you don't need a lot for both eyes. Here is what Mary Kay has to say about their product: "Smooth, wrinkle-free skin is eye-deal at any age! A lifetime of animated facial expressions, sun exposure and squinting can cause the delicate, fragile skin of the eye-area to become more susceptible to advanced signs of aging, which can contribute to a tired, older-looking appearance. Mary Kay helps combat these aging culprits with the all-new Mary Kay® TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Eye Renewal Cream. This rich, pampering, formula is part of the all-new Mary Kay® TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ line of targeted products, containing ingredients that target sagging skin, crepiness, under-eye bags, puffiness and dark circles. In fact, after a four-week study+, a majority of women agreed that skin felt instantly refreshed, revitalized, that skin looked resilient and that the cream felt silky and simply melted into the delicate targeted eye." I have some crepiness, some dark circles, and some smile lines or "crows feet" starting. I did find that with extended use there was a little difference, but after a month or more of using it everyday, I can't say it's a "WOW" difference. The applicator tip is meant to massage the cream into your eye. I found it awkward to use unless I put the cream on first with my ring fingers. Also, after massaging one eye, the tip was too warm to feel a cooling effect on the other eye. It's a nice concept, but I find it easier not to use the application tip at all. According to the Mary Kay website the TimeWise Age Fighting Eye Cream is $26. I can't tell if that is the same product though. It is the only price I can find on any TimeWise eye cream product.
