October 21st, 2010

Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't StrayStay Don't Stray is an around the eye primer for concealers and eyeshadows. It is devised to stop concealers from creasing and make sure shadows last all day with vibrant color.

Benefit have made it a neutral shade so it should suit any skin tone. It is created with a airless pump for easy use, this also stops contamination of the formula.

The primer is formulated with sodium hyaluronate to hydrate skin and help lock in moisture. Vitamin C and E also help fight the signs of aging, says Benefit.

This is yet another product I have reviewed that doesn't contain Parabens, which as I have said in other posts are preservatives used in many cosmetics and some pharmaceutical products.

Users Conclusions

I have listed below some of the opinions of ladies that are using Stay Don't Stray primer:


  • Creamy
  • Absorbing
  • Quick drying
  • Color correcting
  • Easy to apply


  • Pump dispenses too much product (most people found this)
  • Can crease ( some found this)


Apply the primer over lids and under eyes and let set. Then apply your concealer to under-eye area and your eyeshadow.

To Sum Up

Most ladies that have tried Stay Don't Stray primer seem to favor it, as it is creamy to apply, quick drying and helps eyeshadow last longer.

There is one problem most people experienced when using the primer, they found the pump dispenser wastes a lot of product by dispensing too much every time. Also some found it made their concealer crease after a couple of hours.

I think is a little lavishly priced at $24 a bottle, although not really any complaints from patrons of the price.

All in all a reasonable primer Benefit should just get rid of the pump dispenser and opt for a tube.

October 19th, 2010

Bare Escentuals Natural Lip GlossBare Escentuals is well known for it's amazing natural products. Personally, I think its an amazing company with exceptional products.

As expected this lip gloss is 100% natural, a big plus for those of you that are Eco friendly.

The natural ingredients like Cupuacu butter and Seed oil should help hydrate lips leaving them smooth , soft and non sticky. A subtle Vanilla fragrance is apparent with the gloss.

Bare Escentuals 100% Natural Lip Gloss is available in 12 different shades.

Contains no Preservatives or petro-chemicals seems to be a running theme that a lot of cosmetics have in common these days. While having more natural ingredients are a good thing, having no preservatives does mean they aren't going to last more than a few months or so. Just some thing to keep in mind.

Unfortunately Bare Escentuals did not include a SPF in this gloss, which can help stop lips from drying out as quickly.

Users conclusions

Below I have summarized the opinions of the ladies using Bare Escentuals lip gloss:


  • Nice Vanilla flavor/scent
  • High shine
  • Shimmers
  • Moisturizing
  • Long lasting
  • Non sticky


  • Feather and bleed ( one users opinion)
  • No SPF


All shades contain:Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Oleic/Linoleic/Linolenic Polyglycerides, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Brassica Campestris/Aleurites Fordi Oil Copolymer, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Flavor (Natural Vanilla), Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Sorbitan Olivate, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Tocopherol, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Seed Butter, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Silica, Glyceryl Caprylate. (+/-): Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Carmine (CI 75470).

To Sum Up

All in all Bare Escentuals have created yet another fabulous product. Most patrons found the gloss to moisturize, last, shine and be non sticky.

There was one lady who said the gloss wasn't for her, as it feathered, was sticky and she didn't much like the Vanilla fragrance.

Some fanatics think it is a little expensive at $15 a tube considering it doesn't contain any SPF. However, most said they would buy it again.

Certain Dri Antiperspirant For Hyperhydrosis Review | A Roll-On Reduces Excessive Perspiration

October 18th, 2010

Certain Dri AntiperspirantCertain Dri Antiperspirant for Excessive perspiration comes in a roll on form and is devised to reduce underarm wetness.

Apparently laboratory studies prove that Aluminum Chloride is more effective and longer lasting than other ingredients found in antiperspirants, according to Certain Dri.

I have researched Aluminum Chloride and found out that it is one of the best solutions for hyperhydrosis but it can be irritating to sensitive skin and make your under arms sore and itchy.

This is one of the top recommended anti-perspirants you can get without a prescription but if it doesn't work for you you could try Drysol as it contains 8% more Aluminum Chloride, you would have to speak to your doctor about it as you can only get it when prescribed.

Users Conclusions

I have compiled the lists below from the users opinions on viewpoints.com:


  • Reduces excessive perspiration
  • Fast acting
  • Easy to use
  • Unscented


  • Awkward night time application


Aluminum Chloride (12%) (Antiperspirant) Sodium Bicarbonate, Water.

Directions for use

Apply sparingly to under arms before bedtime and let dry before you lower your arms.

To Sum Up

This could be a good tender in controlling hyperhydrosis as it has very good reviews with most of the users left with a dry feeling under their arms.

Although, it isn't a miracle cure as it didn't work at all for a couple of patrons. Some do find it a bit of a hassle to apply it at bedtime but if it works its worth it.

It is reasonably priced at $6.28 for a 1.2oz bottle, so is a least worth looking into if you suffer from excessive sweating.

Shimmering Stardust Eyeshadow By Urban Decay Review | Highly Pigmented Shadows Blend Well & Glide On

October 17th, 2010

Urban Decay Stardust EyeshadowUrban Decay has devised a shimmering set of eye shadows for spring 2010 called Stardust. These shades aren't for the faint heart! Apparently there is even more glitter than ever before, 40% more to be exact says Urban Decay.

The 9 different shades are listed below:

  • Space Cowboy- shimmering champagne beige
  • Bobby Dazzle- shimmery white
  • Griffith -shimmery yellow green
  • Diamond- shimmering brown
  • 54-sparkly purple
  • Retrograde- shimmering deep purple with a tinge of red
  • Atmosphere- shimmery bright blue
  • Moon spoon-sparkly greyish mauve
  • Void-greyish black with sparkles (like the night sky)

The stardust set has been designed not to have big chunks of glitter that gets every where, it should stay put. The eyeshadow has a long last formula and should glide onto your eye lids with ease. The amount of product you get has doubled compared to the other Urban Decay shadows.

Users Conclusions


  • Shimmery
  • Blends well
  • Glides on easily


  • Glitter fall out ( only a small amount but enough to notice)


To get less glitter fall out from an eye shadow try using a damp sponge to apply it. Stardust would work well for a sexy shimmering smokey eye look. I personally think void and retrograde would work well together.


All shades contain: Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Dimethicone, Talc, Zinc Stearate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Octyldodecyl Stearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

To Sum Up

A nice selection of colors that most ladies love, unfortunately they aren't as pigmented as Urban Decay promise. Still very desirable though, personally I prefer more subtle shades anyway.

There is a small amount of fall out also which lets stardust down, although if used with a damp sponge fall out should lesson.

Even though Urban Decay have doubled the amount of product you get for Stardust shadow, it is still expensive at $20 for one shade.
