Neutrogena-Active-Breathable-Sunblock.jpg (67 KB)

If I remember correctly, this sunscreen came out at about the same time as Neutrogena's Sheer Dry Touch. I bought a bottle of each because I'm fair and spend a lot of time outdoors.

I used the Sheer Dry Touch first (ignoring Active Breathable because the Sheer Dry worked pretty well, and the promise of "drying sheer" was very ... more >>

A set of three makeup palettes from the trendy brand Tokidoki, each consisting of four eye shadows and one blush or bronzer, housed neat and tidy in a keepsake tin. Oh, there’s also a cute, oversized removable Tokidoki logo magnet that comes with the tin. Can be bought at Sephora for $39.

I'm breaking this review in to personal experience as it wont be the same for everyone, then general about the product. I purchased this at the suggestion of a Sephora sales associate because they were sold out of Stila's black smudge stick liner. I tried this out the next day and had some irritation. I've never had an issue with ... more >>

This is the best eyeliner! It's great for beginers, great colour payoff, very very fluid and easy to apply. I love the consistency, it makes it very easy to use and very hard to make mistakes. Another great thing about it isthe fact that unlike other gel/cream eyeliners, this one does not dry (at least mine is still in great ... more >>

At first glance this product looks beautiful, the packaging is unique and really had my expectations VERY high.

Retailing around 16 dollars, (thank fully I get a MA discount of 50 percent) I cannot believe how HORRIBLE this product is.

The consistency has a strange oily creaminess to it. So then WHY is there so much fallout with application? ... more >>

I've been curious to extend my current makeup collection.. well I always want to extend my makeup collection, who am I kidding. I'd heard a lot about LORAC products but hadn't tried them until this collection (also purchased the Box Office Sensation kit). This collection drew me in because of color variety and cost vs. quantity of product. I ... more >>

I purchased this (and Schiap) during the Sephora VIB sale. Prior, I owned no NARS polishes but do love the brand. I had hesitations because it's a $16 polish and until recently I'm not a nail gal. With me not being much on painted nails that's steep for polish, but I'm very glad I bought this. The formula is ... more >>
