Here are all my reviews:
  • Lipstick Queen Fifteen Minutes of Fame Pop Art Gloss

    This collection's color selection is fantastic. They are deeply saturated and free from sparkle or shimmer, giving them the look of colors used in pop art; specifically, Andy Warhol's art. The colors go on opaque and super shiny. My only complaint is the click pen. I loathe click pens and wish they went with a sponge-tip or doe-foot applicator so I wouldn't waste any of this preciousness.

  • Lipstick Queen Rose Sinner Matte Lipstick

    Lipstick Queen makes the best matte lipsticks on the market. The usual drying effects and flat look is not present here. Instead, you are treated to beautiful, sumptuous color that's anything but flat. This color, Rose Sinner, is a perfectly pink rose that looks fantastic on my pale skin and lights up my blue eyes. The color is bold, but not overwhelming.

  • Jurlique Biodynamic Beauty Night Lotion

    I was thrilled to receive a sample of this pricey night cream. Sadly, I cannot write a proper review because I never gave it a chance. After patting it on my clean face as the directions indicated, I noticed The Smell. The stuff smelled rotton, and I tried for all of five seconds to deal with it before scrubbing it off and tossing the remainder of the sample into the bin.

  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    Props to Neutrogena for formulating a sunscreen that I can actually bear to put on my skin. Greasy and stinky it is not. As its name implies, it goes on dry and sheer, and has a scent that's pleasant relative to other sunscreen. However, I wore the SPF 70 to a five-hour, outdoor graduation ceremony and got horribly burned, even though I reapplied three times.

    Paul Mitchell Super Flaky Sculpting Gel

    I'll admit that this gave my pixie cut awesome hold and definition without any stiffness or crunchiness. And I like the clean, light smell. What I didn't like was looking like I had dandruff. This stuff flaked like crazy!

  • Lush Coolaulin
    6.0

    Lush Coolaulin

    Results depend on what it's paired with

    Coolaulin is a light conditioner that is intended to add shine, not moisture. I've found that when I pair Coolaulin with Lush's Ultimate Shine shampoo bar, I get shiny tresses but lots of flyaways, because of the lack of moisture. When I used it with my other favorite solid Lush shampoo, Reincarnate, my hair looks like straw. If you decide to try Coolaulin, be prepared for an unusual conditioning experience overall. Because it is formulated without nasty things like silicone, it does not have the "slip" of traditional conditioners. This is not a bad thing, but it means you have to use A LOT. One thing I'll say for is that it's got a delicious, unique smell of real coconut with an undercurrent of pipe tobacco, mmmm.

  • Giorgio Armani Code Sheer Eau de Toilette

    I'm 26 and when I sprayed this on I felt 36. It wasn't necessarily an unpleasant smell, but it seemed very traditional and not very me. I spent the rest of my mall trip furtively wiping my wrists on every available surface, hoping to wear down the scent. I was afraid someone would call me "ma'am" and offer me wrinkle creams or mom jeans while I was wearing it.

  • Nature's Gate Herbal Daily Conditioner for All Hair Types

    People with dry hair will find that this product doesn't offer enough moisture, even when it's used daily and left in for 3+ minutes. The $5 price tag makes this a good bet for everyone else. It has a woodsy, sexy smell that I can't get enough of, so I'm glad it lingers in my hair long after I've rinsed.

  • Philosophy Red Licorice High Foaming Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath

    Philosophy Red Licorice High Foaming Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath

    Good news for licorice lovers, bad news for me

    You either love the smell and taste of red licorice, or you don't. I'm firmly in the Don't category. When I got a sample of this, however, I was willing to give it a shot. While I was charmed by the abundance of creamy pink lather, the red licorice smell is strong. To add insult to injury, it left my skin feeling dry and itchy.

  • Korres Natural Products Deep Color Mascara

    The sleek simplicity of the package mirrors what's inside. A no-fuss brush delivers a sweep of lash-lengthening color that won't wear off, smudge, irritate contact lenses. A dose of natural products (like bran and rice) conditions lashes.
