    Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner

    Easy to apply light application and no, not hard to remove

    For shakey hands, this style of pencil is superb. It wipes off easily after mistakes and "self sharpens" so I don't have to worry about my dirty sharpener. 1st to review says it's impossible to remove--I actually have a hard time getting it to stay on. I have eye allergies with constant eye boogers so I'm constantly poking my finger into the corners of my eyes. Eyeliner rubs off quite easily in this process. After washing my face at night, eyeliner comes off easily. If not, try some make-up remover specified for eye stuff. My only gripe is the lack of brown shades. Sometimes I'd like to go a bit darker and bold and you just can't do that with a light, smooth eye liner

  • REvlon Illuminance Creme Shadow

    REvlon Illuminance Creme Shadow

    Creamy but too sparkly

    I love the texture of this shadow but the color combos you get in the Khaki Suede are about stupid. I was going for more of a light borwn to accent my green eyes but what I got what clubbing eye shadow. I'm 27 and a bit too old for so much glitter and shine (I like a more natural look) It didn't fade through the night or creep around my eyes like some cheaper creams do. I like it, but the colors and the glitter-shine are a bit too bold for me It's easy to go light with it, or pile it on in layers for a more dramatic color Use cheap disposable applicators (Q-Tips even) because everything will stick to it in your make-up bag.

  • Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser
    8.0

    Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser

    Good stuff, but use sparingly

    I began using this after a friend recommended the 3-step Clean & Clear box. I've been using it for a few months now, every night, folllowed by an all over application of the salicylic spot treatment (yes, ALL over) My skin is VERY oily, freaks out easily PROS: It has kept major pimples at bay. I was beginning to get cystic acne and I wasn't having that! Price is right Scent is mild, just rinse very well CONS: Don't leave on the skin too long. It doesn't tingle, it burns! I use at the very end of my shower, after I've rinsed my hair. Adjust to your needs. It can be drying. 2x a day was waaay too much for me. Once a night is perfect for my skin. You MUST use a moisturizer! (I don't recommend clean & clear moisturizers though) TIPS: I scrub gently with plain 'ol Baking Soda for exfoliation, then rinse with cool water before I wash with this stuff. I'd also began taking fish oil supplements once in AM, once in PM daily and I have seen dramtic imporvements in my problem skin

  • Clean & Clear Advantage Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer

    I don't care for it. The scent is mild though it's very thin, almost milky & I prefer a thicker moistorizer. I will say that it's good for acne prone skin but I'll stick with my aveeno with spf over this stuff

  • St. Ives Whipped Silk Ultra Moisturizing Body Wash

    PROS: Well, it lathers & seems to moisturize (though I don't notice any differnce compared to other brands in the price range) Rinses well from loofa (see Cons; it's doesn't produce a rich lather) CONS: The scent--reminds me of old-lady power. Has a very old fashioned smell & i HATE it! You have to USE A LOT to get decent lather. As compared with say, Dial--which you don't need much at all. Went half way through the bottle very quickly

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Magazines LOVE this product. An Urban Decay rep recommended it to me so I bought some. It's cheap stuff. My lashes clump and stick to each other. I comb, wiggle, seperate with my fingers--nothing looks natural with this stuff. Pure junk. I'd much prefer to go bare than to use this again.

  • Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock Lotion SPF 30

    PROS: did not irritate skin CONS: It's hard to rub into skin. Absorbs about as easily as Jell-O Leaves a white residue on the skin Comes off easily with just water, sweat, etc STINKS! No smell out of the bottle, but once on the skin, it smells like fermented feet

  • Urban Decay Surreal Skin Liquid Foundation
    7.0

    Urban Decay Surreal Skin Liquid Foundation

    Eh, It's OK and yeah just OK

    PROS: The rep at the Ulta store selected a shade that matches my skin *almost* perfectly I suppose it's a cheaper version of dept store stuff Doesn't feel heavy while providing medium coverage (I swear NOTHING covers those blue veins) CONS: Rubs off easily; don't wear black. I've tried with diff powers--it always comes off THE BOTTLE IS A PURE MENACE!!! I might dump it out into another container & turn the genie bottle into a lotion bottle Priced too high for how easily it comes off. I've only experimented with Estee Lauder Double Wear Light as far as not-from-Wal-Mart make-up goes and I prefer Estee' Lauder

  • Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner

    I began using this in the winter when someone recommended to me that I use a hair mask. Cold weather + HOT showers + working around chemicals at work had my hair feeling like dead grass. This was the mid-ranged priced stuff at Wal-Mart so I grabbed it and used every other day. Made my hair SO SOFT. Now that the weather is warm I only use about every 2 or 3 days. My hair type is long, thick and greasy. This didn't feel greasy, just made my hair feel like a child's hair! TIPS--wash & condition & let the miracle sit in your hair till end of shower. Wash face AFTER rinsing conditioner. I hear you may not want conditioner stuff in your pores (a good idea for us with senstive, pimple prone skin) Condition & leave in a shower cap for 10 min for ultimate softness & repair

  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

    PROS: No smell !!!! Doesn't make me break out (I have oily skin that freaks out easily when introducing a new product) The pump doesn't decide how much comes out, I do Priced right compared to dept store stuff Lasts awhile, though if I'm sweating horribly and outside, I do reapply midday CONS: none to me personally Some complain that the spf 15 is half the price of the 30 sph and yeah, that's a bummer but the the bottle lasts forever so pick up the big bottle of spf 15 or a smaller bottle of spf 30 for the same price
