  • St. Ives Soothing Oatmeal Shea

    St. Ives Soothing Oatmeal Shea

    Nicely priced, decent moisture

    You can get this stuff anywhere: Target, Walmart, whatever, and it's usually less than $4 for a nice big pump container that will last you a while. This stuff actually smells nice without being perfumed or overpowering, and lasts for a long while on my skin without feeling greasy. This lotion has earned at spot on my bedside table, and it's what I go to before sleep at night. I would buy it again.

  • MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation
    4.0

    MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation

    It's just not that great...

    After Korres discontinued my favorite foundation, I bought MAC's studio Sculpt in my equivalent shade. The coloring is right, and that's never an issue with MAC, but the finish is terrible for me, no matter what I do with this foundation. I've tried putting it on with fingers, various brushes, and sponges, and nothing smoothes it out to an invisible finish. My old Korres liquid and my newer BB and DD creams are all easily made invisible, but this foundation always looks cakey and bad. Even with facial primer, there's not a thing I can do with it. This one is going to have to get tossed.

  • Wet n Wild H20 Proof Felt-Tip Liquid Eyeliner
    8.0

    Wet n Wild H20 Proof Felt-Tip Liquid Eyeliner

    If you know what you're doing, it's a good liner

    You know how to apply liner and want something that will last all day? This is a great, cheap liner. If you're not comfortable with liquid lining yet? Don't buy this. You need to have some skill to handle this liner (the tip is fairly hard), and you need to prevent smudges (remember, it's waterproof and hard to get off). This stuff is VERY inexpensive, paraben-free, and definitely worth the money - no creases, no shine.

  • Korres Natural Products Wild Rose Foundation with SPF 20

    I have very fair skin and this foundation is perfect for my red undertones. Yes, it does have yellow tones to it, and that makes sense considering this is a Greek brand (mediterranean), but for anyone who has facial redness, this foundation can be amazing - neutralizing the underlying warm tones. The application is very smooth, and this foundation blends to the point of being invisible, and just covering flaws for me. The foundation itself smells like wild roses but is delicate and not overwhelming. The bottle is not the best for application (hence 9 stars and not 10), but it's not terrible either...Just don't knock it over! But, the big issue is, this foundation is no longer sold in the United States, making it very difficult to find and obtain.

  • Clinique High Lengths Mascara
    6.0

    Clinique High Lengths Mascara

    Pretty good, but...

    This mascara has a great formula, and the wand it pretty good at getting my upper lashes totally coated and nicely curved. The downside is that the curve of the wand makes it impossible to use on lower lashes, and there's always the chance that a teensy slip up in coating top lashes will result in mascara all over your face. The curved wand is definitely a double-edged sword. So, although the forumla is to die for, I stay away from using this stuff on busy days or mornings when I know I'll be on the floor (nursing in a hospital) because a little mess with this mascara means I'll be clearning up my whole look before I go out the door. This one is good, but there are better wands and formulas out there.

  • Tarte Natural Cheek Stain

    I have Dollface, and the limited edition Green SIren by Tarte. Dollface is a gorgeous candy pink that seems to be attractive in any season. If I want a blush that will last all day, this is the only blush that works for me. Because it's not a powder, it lasts through the day, and stays fresh on my face. My only issue is that it's a little stiff, but it's a gel and that's to be expected. If it were not so thick, it wouldn't provide the color needed to finish my look. It's an expensive purchase, but well worth the money since it will last you forever.

  • Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm

    Wanting to get the "real" stuff, I ordered this from South Korea as a birthday gift to myself. It wasn't cheap, but it was less expensive than buying it from Sephora here in the states, so I was happy with that, even though I was taking a gamble getting a facial product sight-unseen. When I recieved it, I knew from reviews by ladies who know these products that the cream was supposed to be thick, it is. It's creamy with a stiffer, gel-like texture. The trick is to squeeze it on your hand, dab it on your face liberally, and then start smoothing it out all over your face. It self-adjusts on your skin, and brightens dark circles. This product covers redness and reduces the visibility of pores. Yes, it takes a couple of tries to get it to spread right, but dang, this is my go-to product. There is nothing better than this BB cream for daily use, and it does get used. My holy grail.
