Here are all my reviews:
  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Lotion

    As a dry-handed germaphobe, I appreciate the very existence of this product. It's pretty packaging always keeps the product inside the bottle and it's the perfect size for slipping into your purse or keeping in a desk drawer. There's a wide variety of yummy scents but I find most of them to be too strong. I also wish that the lotion was more heavyweight; it takes two consecutive applications to make my hands feel moisturized. On really dry-hand days, this stuff doesn't cut it all.

  • Neutrogena SkinClearing Liquid Makeup

    At first I loved this makeup. It was cheap, came in a terrific array of colors, and did not cause breakouts. However (and that's a big however), it sucked all the moisture out of my skin, and caused massive peeling on my nose. The packaging sucks. The lid allows product to leak all over the neck of the bottle, causing a thick buildup. Too bad, because I hate that feeling of covering up a pimple knowing that covering it up is really just making it worse.

  • Benefit Her Glossiness

    This is one of the shiniest lip glosses I've every had the pleasure of wearing. It's slick, not sticky, and feels moisturizing. I always stare at my lips in the mirror after using Her Glossiness, puckering and admiring the vinyl-like finish. The glass bottle never leaks and gets sticky, and the sponge-tip applicator delivers a perfect amount. A short life span is the only thing that kept Her Glossiness from a full ten stars.

  • Benefit The Gloss

    Benefit The Gloss

    Pretty, but very drying

    I like that I can wear this sheer color over lipstick for extra shine and a subtle color change or wear it alone for a sweet little wash of color. However, the formula leaves something to be desired. The Gloss does not penetrate very well, it just sits on your lips and dries them out. Also, it's a bit sticky and has a nasty taste. If the Benefit chemists could fix this, I would buy it again. Otherwise, there are just too many other lip gloss possibilities to waste time exfoliating flakes off my lips after I wear this one.

  • Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser

    I bought a bottle of this because Consumer Reports recommended it, and I'm glad I did. It lathers nicely and doesn't cause my sensitive skin to flake. Best of all, it leaves my skin feeling CLEAN, but without tightness or dryness. My only complaint is that it doesn't tackle blackheads.

    L'Oreal Paris Couleur Experte

    Amazingly easy to use

    I used this product for the first time two weeks ago (in Cherry Cordial) and I was happier with the results than I've ever been with a hair dye, and I'm including trips to the salon. At first I was nervous because the base coat was darker than what I wanted, but after I added the highlights the color looked just as it did on the box, and it's stayed bright--not easy for red hair dye. I'm terrible with hair, and was sure I was messing up the highlights as I went along, making them too thick and skunky and screwing up the back, but, like I said, I was very pleased with the results. I will definitely be purchasing this product again. Tip: Big Lots often sells this product for $6.50, and they have a pretty decent selection.

  • Nars Concealer
    1.0

    Nars Concealer

    Returned It

    This concealer failed to cover the dark circles under my eyes. The texture and lipstick-like packaging made it difficult to achieve even coverage, so it looked streaky and granular and you could see the purple through it. Still, a lot of people seem to really love this product, so I'd recommend trying it on and checking out the results outside of the store before buying it.

  • Prescriptives Camouflage Cream

    Oddly, this concealer looks slightly dry and cakey an hour or so after application, and yet it takes two or three coats to completely conceal the dark circles under my eyes. It also tends to settle in fine lines and wrinkles. Still, the formula is easy to apply, especially to dab on to little blemishes here and there because it won't slip off while you're applying it like many concealers do.

  • Bumble and Bumble Leave In (Rinse Out) Conditioner

    After eyeing this conditioner's fabulous reviews for a few weeks, I finally broke down and bought it when I saw it at Nordstrom Rack for a bit cheaper than normal. I wish I would've bought it sooner. This conditioner manages to be both lightweight and deeply moisturizing on my fine, frizzy, colored, heat-styled, extremely angry hair, and is the only product I've found that does so. Even when I pile other products on top of it, my hair stays light. The frizzies are mostly gone and my hair is definitely shinier. I owe whoever came up with this stuff a dozen roses and a box of chocolates.

  • Stila Lip Glaze

    Stila Lip Glaze

    Save your shekels

    For the price of this lip gloss, you can do much better. Stila offers this gloss in a tempting array of scented colors and an innovative delivery system (you brush it on). This gloss looks fabulous on ... but only for a few minutes. The color and shine wear off very quickly. It also has a funky taste.
