Some Product Reviews

Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Somebody on Makeup Alley was talking this up. It's not merely "nothing special;" it is truly not as good as, say, L'Oreal Voluminous. Now you know.

Smashbox O-GLOSS Intuitive Lip Gloss With Goji Berry-C Complex

That's a mighty big name, isn't it? And even setting aside the nonsense about goji berries and vitamin C, it's still a little bit of a let-down. The color is quite pink, and I don't like it nearly as much as Benefit's Benetint. I only gave it a try because Benetint is such a bitch to use. Back to the drawing board.

Christ, I'm never going to get any corporate swag if I don't find something to praise.


  1. OMG, when I first read that name of the first product, I thought it said Clit.

    Then I laughed because I haven't thought of or typed that word in such a long time!

  2. Was I dreaming or did I see benetint in a roll-on somewhere? Now THAT would be easier to use.

  3. I can't give you a corporate swag, but thanks for the PSA. I think your readers will agree...we'd all waste money on such useless crap if it weren't for our gal mamacita!

  4. I saw that Benetint roller -- I should have bought it instead! I let the Smashbox rep talk me into the other. So I'm returning it and getting the Benetint anyway. HAH!
