Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Painting your nails takes no time at all but waiting for them to dry can really be a drag. We tried Revlon’s Top Speed Nail Enamel, which promises to dry in 60 seconds, and thought it was a great formula. With a base coat and two coats with polish (doesn’t everyone use two coats?) it took longer than one minute to properly dry. But the polish definitely set in record time. The colors in this line of nail polish are very rich. Our favorite was Jelly, which is a vibrant pink shade.

L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Compact Makeup

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Talc is a filler that is in a great deal of cosmetic products. However, many women are allergic to talc and dermatologists usually recommend talc-free products. It should be easy to find talc-free makeup in a drug-store but it’s actually not! In a search for talc-free makeup we found L’Oreal’s True Match Super-Blendable Compact Makeup which has no fillers and is oil free! This product seamlessly blends with your skin and is said to have light to medium coverage. However, we found it to give a medium to heavy coverage with layering. What we liked the most about this makeup is that even with layering it feels pretty light. It also has a SPF 17 to help protect your skin from sun damage. There are 18 shades to choose from in warm, neutral, and cool tones.

Maybelline Express Finish 50 Second Nail Color

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Have you ever tried a quick drying nail polish only to discover that it chips faster than regular nail polishes? We thought the same thing would happen with Maybelline’s Express Finish 50 Second Nail Color but it actually lasted for days! We loved that it was quick drying, however when we did our regular 2 coats it certainly took longer than 50 seconds to dry. We tried a neutral color first, next we will try a darker color to see if we can still get days of chip-free color.

Clearasil DailyClear Daily Face Wash

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Cleansers for acne-prone skin tend to give the deepest cleaning, however they usually contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. If you don’t have acne but still want a very deep clean, we recommend Clearasil DailyClear Daily Face Wash. It doesn’t have acne fighting ingredients which can dry out skin, but it thoroughly gets rid of all makeup and dirt. We also liked that this face wash contains glycerin and aloe, which leaves your skin soft and moisturized. Gentle cleansers are great, but for those of us who like to wear makeup the downside is that they are gentle on makeup as well. We find this product to be reminiscent of Clinique’s Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser, which is great but costs about three times more.

L’Oreal Paris Age-Reversing Makeup

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

We were intrigued by the L’Oreal Paris USA Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup since it seemed to have more anti-aging focus than any other foundation in the drugstore. It contains an age-reversing serum with 5 ingredients that includes Pro-Retinol A and Vitamin C. It promises to ‘make skin smoother, firmer, brighter, even and flawless’. What we loved the most about this product is that it gave full coverage without settling into lines. However, we would not recommend this for anyone with sensitive or oily skin. The retinol can be an irritant for some people.
