    Milani Smooth Finish Even-Tone Powder Foundation

    Nice Matte Finish, Great Packaging

    I usually don't focus on packaging, but the looks of this gold & glamorous powder certainly caught my eye. It flips open to a nice magnifying mirror, and then the powder pot flips up to reveal a soft, circular, spongy applicator. I feel glamorous whipping out this powder! The actual product is decent. The sheer coverage is easy to blend, but in no means a foundation meant to cover up flaws (I have mild discoloration from acne scars) or make your skin appeared more "even tone". It does a good job at giving a matte finish and keeping my oily skin in check. Definitely a great finishing product and practical for everyday use. A few stars off for not living up to its name, but being a good product nonetheless.

  • Eucerin Extra Protective Moisture Lotion SPF 30

    Eucerin Extra Protective Moisture Lotion SPF 30

    Gentle w/ Great Sun Defenses, but not that moisturizing

    I use this lotion as my daily moisturizer. I like that it has both UVA + UVB protection, SPF 30, has no annoying scent (subtly smells like sunscreen), doesn't clog your pores, and does not seem to heighten my oily skin. Though the lotion was gentle, it wasn't that effective as a moisturizer. The texture is not completely runny, but could be a tad bit creamier. It will do nothing to soothe dry patches and takes a bit more effort to rub in (so your skin doesn't look white). The packaging is mediocre - the head has no lock function and the lotion crusts up around the opening. If only it were more moisturizing....

  • Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

    Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

    Blot Away Your Mid-Day Oilyness

    Having oily skin is no fun, but these blotting sheets do a great job of removing surface oil and reducing shine. The sheets leave no residue and do not irritate my acne prone skin. Used over make-up, they do a great job of only picking up ONLY oil, not smudging my make-up. My only complaints are the tiny (5 x 8 cm) size (you'll probably need at least 2 sheets to cover the whole face) and flimsy packaging. For the price, convenience (located at big box retailers ex: Target, Wal-Mart and drugstores), and effectiveness, I will continue to buy. I buy 1 50 sheet pack every month, using 1-2 sheets daily.

  • C.O. Bigelow Mentha Ultra Lip Shine No. 1122
    7.0

    C.O. Bigelow Mentha Ultra Lip Shine No. 1122

    Minty, Moisturizing, and Glossy

    This is by far the most potent mint product I have ever used. The mint flavor is strong, refreshing, and sensational on the lips. The balm has a sticky texture and a LOOK-AT-MY-GLOSSY lips appearance. If you use this in the day time, the gloss staying power will last you a few hours, but the look of moisturized, dewy lips will last all day. I'd recommend using this before you sleep to wake up with the most supple lips ever. Overall, this minty balm/gloss works wonders.

    N.Y.C. New York Color Classic Brow & Liner Pencils

    Hey what the heck, it's only $0.99, right?

    Attracted by the dirt cheap price, I bought the NYC eyeliner pencil in a pretty navy color, and was disappointed. It's hard to apply (unless you like violently tugging your eye), doesn't have decent pigment, and almost no staying power. This is coming from someone who consistently uses drug store products, so my expectations aren't alarmingly high....

    Yes to Carrots Lip Butter

    Say YES to this lipbalm!

    Relatively cheap, USDA organic, and effectively moisturizing - I can't find a single flaw in this product. I bought the mint flavor, which was refreshing and slightly tingling, comparable to Burt's Bees, but on a smaller scale. The texture is smooth and lovely,no waxy or goopy feel. Great as a base under other lip products and a daily essential in my make-up bag. GO BUY IT!
