You won't go wrong with Revlon's Bombshell Red!
Having been a fan of Revlon's line of Super Lustrous Lipstick for years, I was interested in trying color in their new line. I've never been a fan of red, particularly fire engine red, but this shade gave me an entirely new insight into red lipstick. Bombshell Red is dark cranberry a blue red. The lipstick is moisturizing and has a number of different finishes depending on your preference. It goes on smoothly with no caking or smudging and lasts a long time but may need to be reapplied after eating. If you are not a fan of dark pigments, this color may not be for you. It is intense but that just part of the "wow" factor of the color. In addition, it does have some shine and you can apply clear lip gloss over it if you want even more of a va-va-voom effect. Although I think the color would work year-round, it might be best for fall and winter and it would be fabulous for the holidays. Revlon has, yet again, developed a color that could easily be a staple in their Super Lustrous Line of lipsticks. This lipstick is well priced another "winner" from a long established leader in the cosmetic industry. You won't go wrong with Revlon's Bombshell Red!

Review for: Forbidden Romance more...
I recently was able to travel to Chicago and go to a MAC store! I have only ever been to a MAC counter once in my whole life and I fell in love instantly with everything I saw! Everything was absolutely beautiful, and I was devastated when I didn't have the money to purchase anything. But, when I went to Chicago, I finally was able to go to a complete MAC store and I was in Heaven! From my first visit to a counter, I knew the exact things I wanted. I wanted some matte lipstick!

I would like to state that MAC lipstick is seen as expensive, and I really don't think people should think it's overly expensive. I bought two lipsticks for $34 and they're so pigmented and amazing, all you need is one swipe and you can cover your whole entire lip. $17 for a lipstick that will last you years is definitely not too expensive!

The packaging is so sleek and amazing, as well. The bullets close with a nice click that lets you know it's good for the go. The smooth feeling of the bullet is just perfect. It really does feel like luxury makeup without being tacky. The bullet even has small sparkles in it that makes the encasing shine so beautifully! One of the lipsticks I bought was Ariana Grande's Viva Glam matte lipstick, which is a gorgeous color. But what's really cool is that the bullet is specially made. Instead of silver detailing, the detailing is a gorgeous red color, which even has Ari's signature written on the inside! The box it came in is plain black with red, foil-plated signature on it, as well. The packaging is to die for, and I can imagine myself keeping the packaging forever!

Ari's Viva Glam matte lipstick is supposed to be the 'bad girl' shade while her lipglass is the 'good girl' shade. I was torn between which one to grab, the gloss or the stick. I am so happy that I grabbed the lipstick! It is the most beautiful deep, red-purple shade I have ever seen. It's so deep, it looks black inside of the container! But I promise that it is a gorgeous plum shade that is just to die for! It glides onto the lips like butter, but dries down to be an amazing matte shade that lasts forever! I did find that some transferred off when I started to drink and eat, but the stain of it lasts on your lips and it's so easy to reapply, I don't complain!

The next shade I got is a cult classic. No, it's not Ruby Woo! It's Velvet Teddy, another amazing matte shade that is drool worthy. It's a jaw-dropping pink/nude shade that makes your lips look natural but better than ever. If you're looking for the perfect your-lips-but-better shade, Velvet Teddy is it! It's a lipstick that you put on once and cannot get enough of! I absolutely love the color payoff and just how long these lipsticks last.

What's great about the lipsticks, as well, is that they are so creamy, even though they are matte. They are not drying on the lips at all. It actually feels like there's nothing on your lips! I couldn't be happier with the formulas! A hidden bonus that I never knew, as well, is that the lipsticks smell like cookies! They aren't overbearingly sweet smelling, so you won't smell them all day long, and they don't make me nauseous like most sweet scents do. They scent is so subtle, but is the best little surprise in the whole world!

If you're cautious when it comes to buying these shades, please release your suspicions and purchase some MAC lipstick! It's the best lipstick I have ever tried in my whole entire life and I cannot wait to get the money to buy more lipsticks, and other products, from them.

If you read this whole entire review, make sure to comment some of your favorite MAC products so I can try those out and review them next. I would love some recommendations from my combination skin friends!

Can't go wrong with a factory pack of genuine Johnson's cotton swabs...better in my opinion than Q-tips! Very effective in my perspective really gentle and good with the skin I really recommend for cleaning spots like belly bottom.

Review for derma e Scar Gel - 3 months, 1 week ago
Purchased at: Target
I will never be without this product. I have cystic acne that I developed last year at the age of 26, and I had the hardest time finding something that helped. I've tried prescription Retin-A, face masks, scrubs, and even the Clarisonic brush. Nothing has helped as much as this peel. When I started using it 2 weeks ago, I had just broken out really badly. My face probably looked the worst it has ever looked in my life. Over the last two weeks, this product has helped my acne heal and has almost completely prevented new acne from appearing. My cystic acne usually leaves dark spots that take weeks or even months to heal, and this product is speeding that process up as well. It also leaves my skin more glowy and radiant than usual.

The bottle says to use 1-2 times per week, but I'm using this every night and have not experienced any negative side effects. Overall I am very satisfied with this product, especially at this price. I've spent hundreds of dollars looking for products that can help me and am so happy to have found this one.

In case anyone wants to know, I use this every night, and in the morning I use a drugstore salicylic acid face wash (any brand works). A couple of mornings each week I follow my face wash with the Derma-E Microdermabrasion Scrub. I also use Olehenriksen Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator for a daily moisturizer, and I use Retin-A on my face everyday too. About once a week I use Peter Thomas Roth's Sulphur Mask on my oily t-zone (this helps with blackheads and sebum in the pores on my nose). I have tested TONS of products and have found that these work best for me. It's an expensive skincare routine for sure, but I can't do without these products.

Also, I live in central Florida where there is a lot of sun, and I wear a BB cream with sunscreen everyday and haven't had any of the negative reactions to sunlight that other reviewers are mentioning.
Review for Palmer's Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks - 3 months, 1 week ago
Purchased at: Walgreens
I was out of state visiting my daughter and borrowed it as I have extremely dry skin. I loved it so much, stayed all day and wasn't oily or greasy like the coconut oil l usually use. I ordered some as soon as l got home and I'm hooked! I do not like the coco butter in the tub as much as I like the cream in the tube. They are totally different. M
Review for Neutrogena¬ģ Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel - 3¬†months, 1¬†week ago

I have oily/acne prone skin and this is the best over-the-counter topical I've ever used! When I use this regularly, it keeps my skin very clear. It helps reduce current pimples and also prevents new ones from popping up--(you know how you can sometimes feel a new one brewing...). I can never find it in stores, so I've been ordering a bunch at a time directly from this site. LOVE IT!

I bought this on a whim because my old cream ran out. It's available at normal places like Walmart or Target and other drug stores. At least I wasn't a fan of the texture of the cream. It's thicker than what I'm used to. I didn't hate it and gave it a try. After a week using it every night, people randomly started noticing and complimenting my skin. The more I used it the more compliments I got. This is definitely a repurchase Less

Review for Clinique Superdefense‚ĄĘ Daily Defense Moisturizer SPF 20 - 3¬†months, 1¬†week ago
Purchased at: Sephora
Before you jump on the illegitimate SPF wagon..
I find it disappointing to read so many 1 star reviews on this cream because of a small, insignificant change in SPF. Sunscreens rated SPF 15 block 93 percent to 95 percent of the sun's rays and ratings of SPF 30 block 98 percent of the radiation. It doesn't matter if you've been using SPF 25 for 55 years, that doesn't change the fact that the difference in protection from the old SD to the new SD is so little it is almost irrelevant. So it really doesn't make a significant difference whether you are wearing SPF 20 or SPF 110. In fact, The American Cancer Society recommends a SPF 15, stating that it is sufficient sun protection. Look it up. It's embarrassing to me that so many people have been using this product for years and think they have the credibility to leave a legitimate review on this product when they don't even have the slightest clue on how to read and comprehend sunscreen labels. So before you ignorant people go off on a tandem because of this insignificant change in sun protection, I suggest you educate yourself first so you don't look like an ignoramus. :) They've added more ingredients to this product, and because of that they had to remove a small amount of SPF in order to retain the product's favorable texture.. Or you folks would be complaining about as well. :) When you add ingredients to a product, it changes the formula, how it feels and acts on the skin, how well it stays, how well it absorbs, etc. You should probably look that up as well.

This cream is awesome. Has 8 antioxidants, broad spectrum coverage and anti-irritants to soothe my extremely sensitive skin (I get burning, itching and redness at least once a month). This cream, partnered with my Super Rescue night time repair has not failed to pamper and treat my picky skin and keep it soft, smooth and refined. I recommend this to those with very sensitive skin who would also be interested in age prevention benefits as well.

Review for Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 - 3 months, 1 week ago
Purchased at: Walmart
Every night before bed I would look at my face and say that I am too tired to wash my face and my face shouldn't even be dirty. This stuff is magical. It's fast & easy. I didn't wear any makeup and wasn't outside at all today and I wiped my face with this product on a cotton pad and this is what it looked like.. NASTY, but atleast the product got my face feeling clean again!! P.S- my skin is not oily at all
