  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Classic Curved Brush Washable Mascara

    This is a decent mascara, that doesn't do anything special. The color is not very intense, but I haven't noticed any flaking or smudging, so it's ok. I generally like large curved brushes, and this one does a good job separating the lashes- no clumps, no sticking together. But there's a big but- curved brushes are supposed to help curve the lashes, and that's typically working, but in this case not. My lashes naturally have a nice curve, but this mascara made them pin straight! It doesn't add much volume or length, just a little bit of color, very natural daytime look. For the same price you can get l'oreal's Voluminous, which will actually make lashes pretty. Will not buy again.

  • Conair Infiniti Cord-Keeper Tourmaline Hair Styler

    This is a great powerful dryer, that I would definitely recommend. I have long thick hair, so I can't live without a good hairdryer, and long hair needs good care to stay healthy. This particular Conair is of great help. Pros: - powerful, dries even thick and long hair faster - 3 heat settings (hot, warm, cool)+ cold shot. I usually dry my hair on "warm" to minimize the damage; - 2 airflow settings- high and low. Even on low the dryer works well, and is quite powerful. - there's an ion button to help add shine; - comes with a concentrator and diffuser; - longer cord (6ft), which, I believe, is a must for a hairdryer, especially if you need to dry long hair, yet many companies neglect that. - easy to clean filter Cons- pretty much just one- the dryer is rather heavy. But it doesn't bother me, since I get to work out at least a little bit every day :). Overall, a great product. Leaves my hair much softer, shinier, and healthier, cause it does the job faster, even on "warm", and I don't need to use the flatiron anymore, cause a blowdry with a round ceramic brush does the trick- the hair is smooth and frizz-free.

  • Revlon Custom Creations Foundation
    9.0

    Revlon Custom Creations Foundation

    Great even for dry or flaky skin!

    I really like this foundation. I have dry skin, so most foundations accentuate occasional flakes, and look overall terrible. This foundation goes on perfect- smooth and even. Obviously, it is easy to get the right color, which is particularly important in summer. The colors are very natural- not too yellow or too pink, just right. Revlon foundations are good when it comes to shades in general. Custom Creations is a lighter foundation compared to Colorstay, but it covers the imperfections well, isn't obvious on the skin, and is buildable. The finish is smooth, and just slightly dewy- no glitter or oily residue. It stays put all day, doesn't transfer to clothes, doesn't melt or change color. If you like Colorstay, but feel like it's better to use something lighter, and something that washes off the face easier, you are likely to enjoy Custom Creations. The packaging is very nice, I love the pump, it really helps to get just as much as you need without getting bacteria into the bottle. Revlon foundations are my favorite, and I highly recommend Custom Creations along with Colorstay, especially for ladies who have dry skin prone to flaking, because this foundation will help you look great all day.

  • Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid Lotion - Original

    I generally like Olay products, and this one is not an exception. I have dry skin, so moisturizer is a must, but not every moisturizer does the job. This one is very good: it gets absorbed fast, there's no sticky film/residue. My skin likes it. What I'm not crazy about is the smell- I think it's a bit too strong. And it would be good to have some spf in it, but I guess the smell and spf-lessness comes from Olay preserving the original formula that seems to be a big hit. The packaging is not bad- plain plastic bottle with a small hole on top to get the lotion out. Works fine, but is too big to carry with you (on the plane for example). I do recommend this product, and I probably will buy it again. Just have to make sure to use uva/uvb blocks if you use it during the day, and especially in summer.

  • Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor

    This lipstick is so-so. The only pros that I found is that it's moisturizing and i quite creamy; and the tube is pretty. I have one in Mauvious shine, and the color looks nothings like what's indicated on the tube and website. It's more of a cool bright pink. It's not very pigmented, so it takes some effort to make it look like anything. Also, the smell is questionable. I don't mean it's necessarily bad, but it reminds me too much of some product for kids, so every time I use this lipstick, I feel like a 5-year-old using her first tinted chapstick/lipstick. Again, it's not terrible, and I can't complain about the quality, but it's not something I would buy again or recommend to a friend.

  • Maybelline New York Color Sensational Pearls Lipcolor

    i'm not impressed with this lipstick at all. Yes, it is moisturizing, and the smell is nice, but the rest leaves much to be desired. The one I've got is super-sheer, doesn't add any color to the lips, and it does look frosty- too many silvery oversized particles to achieve "shimmery" look. I definitely will not buy it again, and don't recommend it for those who don't like borderline frosty, lacking pigment lipsticks.

  • Rimmel London Glam' Eyes Lash Flirt

    I got this mascara cause it was on some crazy sale, and I can't say it is bad. I really like that the color is very intense black (many mascaras lack that), looks very pretty. I personally don't like plastic brushes- I prefer a lot of volume, so I believe in big fluffy brushes. The brush isn't terrible though, it helps to keep lashes perfectly separated, and gives a very natural look. Rimme really shouldn't write glam on the package. :))) The mascara is fairly easy to apply, the tube is very pretty, but it does flake after just a couple of hours of use- big problem. Will not buy this again, there are much better options out there.

  • Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash

    I love this body wash! The smell is just divine, and it lingers on skin for several hours. It is exfoliating, has nice smooth beads in it. I felt it was rather nourishing as well, my skin feels soft and moisturized after I use it. This is probably the best body wash I've used, and I will keep buying it, and will be recommending it to my friends. I wish they made body lotions that smelled just as good!

  • E.L.F. Plumping Lip Glaze
    10.0

    E.L.F. Plumping Lip Glaze

    very nice, especially for 1$!

    I can't say it does a lot of plumping (it's really hard to tell on my lips, since they're not thin). When you apply the plumping primer, you can definitely feel some tingling going on, it smells minty, a bit like cough syrup, but that goes away pretty fast. The color part doesn't smell at all, and is actually slightly sweet (and tasty!). All together it feels amazing on lips- very moist, gives nice color and glaze. I have one in babydoll and one in ruby kiss, and both look gorgeous and expensive. Beautiful colors! It stays on relatively long, and is not sticky at all. The package is nice and sturdy, doesn't feel cheap. Will definitely buy again and again!

  • Lancome Juicy Tubes Jelly Ultra Shiny Lip Gloss

    I have one in Magic Spell, and it smells sooo yummy, like strawberry jelly. And it is actually sweet too. I can't say the look is anything special, it's pretty much a regular gloss otherwise. It's a little sticky. I'm not sure I like all the glitter in this particular gloss, but it's not too bad, not the kid-gloss kind of glitter. The package is ok, totally usable. The main downfall is the price, I wouldn't say that this gloss is worth $18, there are more affordable (still good smelling and tasting glosses), but I say keep it if you get it as a gift. :)
