Review for Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips - 18 hours, 11 minutes ago
After I tried the Bobbi brown shimmer brick I was hooked. Unfortunately at the time I couldn't afford another at over $50. Then after walking through the makeup aisle at Wal-Mart I seen physicians formula made an almost exact dupe. I was excited. Now I use these a bit differently than most. I used to use the dark as a contour, the light as a highlight and rarely all over as a bronzer but mostly I used this as an eyeshadow palette. Each color coordinates with the others so perfectly and they're different enough that you can see the diffetence in color and get a few good eye looks out of these shimmer bricks. The colors are very pigmented and long lasting. They are easy to use and although they are not soft and powdery like high end makeup they are still soft enough to get great pigmentation on your brushes or fingers no matter how you choose to use this. It also blends out amazingly. I love shimmer bricks for eye looks. They are the best and the lightest color is usually always a great highlighter. Especially when it comes to this palette. It gets a little hard and packed in when you start hitting pan but for the amount of product and quality of the majority it's worth it at this price.
This stuff is my daily go to. I have some fav foundations like urban decay all nighter, Christian dior airflash, Christian dior forever and marc jacobs. But I'm not rich so to use those every day is either too expensive or they are too heavy feeling for daily wear which is tough because I need long lasting foundation with full coverage since I have a ridiculous amount of oil on my skin throughout the day and then I'm also usually broken out with adult acne. This makes finding a good coverage foundation that feels light, doesn't make me more oily and doesn't break me out quite a chore. I probably bought and returned at least twenty foundations last year before I found the four above I loved.
Then my friend suggested this stuff. I was pretty skeptical at first because she had not been great at recommending makeup that worked out for me. In fact it usually never did despite us having the same major skin issues.
So I looked at the weights and the prices online and was gonna go for the $15 one to try it out but after I went in store to see the sizes and get a sample I was shocked at the tiny amount of product in the small bottle compared to the huge amount of product in the $38 dollar bottle (comparatively of course.). So I decided that I would never spend fifteen on the tiny bottle so I just got a sample. Fell in love. Got a second sample to be sure. Just as in love now even after a couple weeks so I went back in and splurged on the full size. It's got a nice pump bottle but plastic malleable bottle for packaging shaped like a toothpaste tube bit firmer. The pump was well made and I haven't had any issues with clogging or anything in the couple months of almost daily use. Also a little bit goes a very long way. This bottle will last me six months minimum as long as it's used correctly. If you're using your foundation thicker in some places to cover up imperfections you're just wasting it. You're foundation is not supposed to be a full face concealer. You should always use concealer on the imperfections and discoloration and then your foundation over your entire face after to perfect and blend. Even so, this foundation does an amazing job at covering imperfections. It also doesn't stick to dry areas and make them look worse. Same with wrinkles under the eyes and on the face. It moisturizes those areas without making my skin more oily. It has medium to full coverage and it feels super light and breathable on the skin which makes it perfect for daily use. It doesn't cause breakouts and the ingredients are great! This is my holy grail every day foundation. The large is a great deal too! Enjoy!

Review for OLEHENRIKSEN InstaBright Power Set - 1 day, 7 hours ago
Again just like the three step six pack peel kit the step one and step two are a cleanser and serum you could buy seperately or use your own of and the active brightening ingredient here (step two) is so much cheaper per oz by buying the full size jar. These kits work great and I can imagine that they are travel friendly and make it easier and quicker to use since everything you need and the perfect amount is in one spot. Unfortunately you're sacrificing a lot of money buying it this way and get six uses when you could get 40 or more uses buying the full size products qnd when you look at it that way the price is no contest. If you have the money to blow and you are more worried about convenience then this is for you but if not save a few bucks and buy the active ingredient and use your own exfoliator and brightening serum that I'm sure you own a ton of already. If you do it that way you will actually be spending less money.than buying this set at the moment of purchase anyway just like the three step peel system.
Review for Hot Topic - 1 day, 17 hours ago
I love how I can find stuff here that I can't find anywhere else. For instance harry potter, pokemon, mcr, and dr who merch. They also have cute pin up dresses, jewelry and swimsuits and I'm not plus sized but I've noticed they have carried plus sized clothes since I can remember starting to go there. The prices are pretty high on their own but they are always running a great sale or an opportunity for hot cash. You can't combine hot cash with clearance. That means if you want something on clearance with your hot cash it goes back to full price so that isn't too great. Also hot cash only correlates with what you spent and you have to spend that much next time to get that much free so it's not as easy to use as kohls cash. Also the dates to use hot cash is usually a month or two in the future because They are hoping you've lost it or forgot about it by then. So there are some bad things but there's a lot of good if you're willing to pay the price. Just be careful because some of the stuff is really cheaply made.
Review for IT Cosmetics Confidence in an Eye Cream - 2 days, 6 hours ago
I had a deluxe size sample of this that I've had for weeks and am still using daily. It feels really nice putting it on buy I don't notice any immediate or drastic long term results. Maybe when I use it overnight I have less blue under my eyes when I wake up but that's not always the case so I can't say for sure whether that is the result of sleep, this cream or a combination of the two. It doesn't have much of a smell, if any. It is a good deal for the amount of product you get. Just because I haven't seen any results doesn't mean it won't work miracles for someone else because that's just how skincare works. So I did take stars off for my results but overall value is really great and I think it has the potential to work on someone else who doesn't have such significant under eye issues from insomnia. I love the brand and they make a ton of great products and I bet this product is really great for some.

Review for Nad's Body Wax Strips - 2 days, 16 hours ago
These were pretty horrible. I usually use sally hansens face wax strips that I would cut smaller to make them last longer so I surmised that if I got body strips they would last me even longer. They were pretty big like half the length of my shin and as wide as my knee cap. So I tried them a few times on my clean, dry face after warming them between my hands per directions. This didn't work at all. So I tried all different places on my face. Nothing worked. So I decided that may be the hair was too thin and it would only work on body hair. I tried them it on my leg and still nothing. Finally after a few tries on the same spot and a lot of wax transfer I got a couple hairs but it didn't do anything. It was and it's really horrible. I went through the entire box over a week trying to give it a chance and it just didn't work out. I will still m stick with sally hansen

Review for Ole Henriksen POWER Peel - 4 days, 4 hours ago
This works fairly well but I feel that it's not exactly practical in terms of pricing. Basically there is a cleanser (step 1) then the active peel (step 2) and then a lavender calming moisturizer (step 3) they don't exactly advertise it this way since if you looked at the amounts of products and then the amount of the active ingredient vs buying a full size bottle of the active ingredient and using your own cleanser and moisturizer since they don't react to this stuff in any special way and are also sold separately you'd save a ton of money and get a lot more uses out of it. I'm glad I dug as much as I did to find out what it actually was. I had to zoom in on the pic because they didnt advertise that the active peel is the Lemon Strip Flash peel which is actually cheaper than this six use set by two bucks and you get at least 30-50 uses out of each jar. That's a huge difference. I got the same results using my own cleanser and calming moisturizer.
This stuff works great. And it all smells good but it's not worth the price when there's another option of the exact same product for cheaper. It's not a dupe. It's the actual peel they use and you can buy the actual cleanser and moisturizer and still save a ton of money in the long run. This set is not the way to go but it does give great results so I only knocked two.stars off since I suppose it is travel friendly and has everything you need in one place for each use and it is a good product I.Just would feel duped if I bought this and found out later what I know now.

Review for Viseart Theory Palette Theory V Nuance - 5 days ago
This palette is pretty expensive but the pans are decent sized and there's a good amount of product. These aren't colors you can find just anywhere. I love that it's a unique palette with still very wearable colors. Even though there's only six colors the combinations and looks you can make with this are absolutely endless. This is the third viseart palette I own and the second theory palette I own. The shadows in these are even better than in the full sized palettes which is saying a lot since those are of great quality. These palettes have extremely pigmented colors. So pigmented that barely dipping your brush in gives you maximum color and cover the entire area. That means these palettes will last you forever somce a little goes a long way. As for the formula the shadows are silky, buttery and velvety all at the same time without having any pick up or powdery ness to them. They are unbelievably soft and easy to blend and use.
For this quality the higher price is definitely worth it since these will last much longer than any cheaper palette you have so it kind of evens itself out price wise.
The colors are vivid, true to pan and last all day long with or without primer. And even without primer they are just as beautiful and easy to work with. Out of my hundred palettes I've bought this last year this is my favorite.

Review for Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick - 5 days, 5 hours ago
This is a decent long lasting lipstick. It is on par with other high end lipsticks of the same caliber. I only own one of these but own over fifty high end lipsticks, mostly matte and liquid but all types really. This lipstick lasts about as long as the kvd everlasting lipstick for an example. But like with those it fades with just four hours of wear if you're not doing anything and you will still need a touch up after eating, drinking, kissing, biting nails, smoking, and just living life in general. So you will need a couple touch ups to get you throughout the day but that's much better than any drugstore brand that looks nice on the lips.
This brand sinks into lines a bit but it's not nearly as bad as nyx creamy Matte lip paint. And that can be completely avoided by prepping the lips with a lip scrub and a moisturizer or chapstick of some type before application. They have a great selection of colors and release new colors fairly often so there's always something new and something for everyone. This is a great price for the amount of product you get at this quality. The only thing I don't like is that it's pretty popular but still not as widely available anywhere but online which can be annoying for those of us who like to try before we buy so we can skip the whole return process over things like how a color looks on us or if the packaging is broken or not. Overall I would recommend this to anyone new to makeup or old pros. It's a great brand and not so pricy it's unattainable.

Review for Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid Whitestrips, 21 Count Box - 5 days, 8 hours ago
They whiten quickly and efficiently and keep them that way with minimum upkeep with strips after the initial whitening. Unfortuantely for those with sensitive teeth these cause a lot of pain and over sensitivity to the teeth while whitening. Fortunately the directions account for this possibility and tell you to take a day or two break while your teeth get back to normal before starting again and while it does take longer that way you still get the same exact results. The cost is a bit high but much cheaper than any professional whitening you can get and they work quickly with even the most stained of teeth. Will always but this brand. No whitening product compares.
