  • Stila High Shine Lip Color
    6.0

    Stila High Shine Lip Color

    Inappropriate packaging

    I own this product in Beatrice, a bright pinky coral that lives up to Stila's claim of shininess. Even after the shine fades, the color remains (almost like a stain), so adding chapstick or a clear gloss makes lips look moist and colorful again. Although Beatrice comes in a pretty silver case wrought with dainty flowers, it should be in a pot. This product is so flimsy it doesn't even hold up to the pressure of being applied to your lips. I need to use a lip brush or my finger and make sure the stick never peeks out the top, otherwise it gets squished.

  • Stila Long Wear Lip Color

    Stila Long Wear Lip Color

    False advertising

    I like everything about this slim lipstick except the results. Skinny-lipped especially ladies will love how easy it is to control. The case is sturdy and pretty and houses a slick, creamy lip color that smells like vanilla. Unfortunately, this lipstick is far from "long-lasting." It wears off very quickly and feels dry. Not good for such a pricey lipstick whose sole purpose is to last a long time and be like a gloss.

  • Caress Moroccan Body Wash

    Caress Moroccan Body Wash

    A lot of bang for your buck

    Hooray for products that are downright cheap but deliver a great product and lots of it. The rich, unique scent may not be for everyone, but I loved it. I also loved the creamy foam that left my dry, itchy skin feeling comfortabley moisturized.

  • Stila Eye Shadow Pan
    7.0

    Stila Eye Shadow Pan

    Beautiful on certain complexions

    A friend of mine once told me that I'm the only person she knows who looks good when I wear clothes and makeup that make it look "like a nursery exploded on me." In other words, my light eyes, skin, and hair look pretty in pastels. Hence, almost all of Stila's eyeshadows look lovely on me. I especially recommend Sun (a shimmery, golden peach) and Go Lightly (a dark, shimmery bronze), especially for those with blue or green eyes. Aside from the colors and the smooth, easy-to-apply texture, the flimsy pans these come in suck. And it sucks even more to have to buy a separate case for them, as they're already quite pricey. Moreover, the shimmery shades tend to smear, leaving a sparkly, fan-shaped trail from the exterior corner of my eye to my cheek.

  • Sally Hansen Hard as Nails

    Sally Hansen Hard as Nails

    Great alone or as a basecoat

    This polish gives my nails a pretty sheen when used on its own and makes an excellent basecoat. I used a normally crummy nail polish over it and the nail polish went on much more smoothly and with greater color payoff than usual. It also lasted a long time (or would've, if I didn't compulsively pick at my nail polish during tedious, two-hour staff meetings). Definitely adds strength to my flimsy nails.

  • Essie Good to Go Top Coat

    Essie Good to Go Top Coat

    Not long-lasting

    This polish delivers a super shiny topcoat and dries your polish almost instantly. Which is why it's too bad that this product doesn't last long in the bottle or on your nails. Chipping and peeling starts within a few hours and the polish in the bottle got thick and gloppy when it was only a quarter empty.

  • Redken Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder

    I have ultra fine hair that resists all efforts to volumize. Turns out I was going about it the wrong way: I needed this product to fatten up all my strands, not a spray that only targets the roots. I have wavy hair that I can either blow dry straight or scrunch into curls. I'd get these beautiful little ringlets, but they'd be totally flat, so I gave up on curly hair. Then I tried this lotion. Wow! It plumped up my hair enough to allow me to wear my hair curly, and I got a ton of compliments.

  • Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Working Hair Spray

    I received a free sample of this at Ulta, and I will definitely not be purchasing the full size. This pricey hair spray is nothing special. Although it claims to to be multi-functional, it's really just hair spray. This product works just as well as its less-expensive peers, but with the unfortunate distinction of smelling horrible. I can't describe it, but it's so strong my bathroom reeks for a long time after I've used it.

  • Burt's Bees Rosewater and Glycerin Toner

    I love using this product after a long day, especially when it's hot out. It has a pleasantly sweet scent, feels good on my skin, and takes the day's grime off.

  • Bliss Steep Clean Pore Purifying Mask

    Bliss Steep Clean Pore Purifying Mask

    I get angry everytime I open my medicine cabinet and see this sitting there, useless

    It was such a horrific waste of money. Some blogger was raving about this stuff, so I sucked it up and splurged, believing, as promised by the blogger and Bliss, that it would fix my only two facial skin complaints: redness and blackheads. I have used it faithfully every week, and it gets two stars for making my face feel nice and smooth after each use, but I've seen no improvement over time and the price for such a low-quality product is ridiculous.
