LOVE!!! My skin is combo-oily and this moisturizer has made me VERY happy. Upon application, it's so lightweight and non-greasy. This is an excellent basic moisturizer overall. Rich and hydrating, never irritating, never clogs my pores. Quality-wise, it's comparable to Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream or Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb. If you're a fan of either of those, this product will be worth checking out.

I will definitely buy this again. Recommended!!

Lipstick -Unlisted Brand -Golden Rose - Velvet Matte Lipstick

Best matte lipsticks I have tried in my whole life! and believe me I have tried many
I like to wear different shades of lipstick in different days.my skin is almost neutral so I can wear both warm and cold shades.I wanted to find a good drug store matte lipstick because I can't afford to buy various shades of a high-end brand
Recently I saw Golden Rose Velvet Matte Lipsticks discounted in a local site and ordered shades 13 and 32 because I have had a great experience with Golden Rose liquid matte lipsticks.I loved them so much that I have bought four more shades in less than a month
They have great pigmentation and a completely matte finish(much more matte compared to WetNWild Megalast Lipsticks and Oriflame The One Supermatte Lipsticks)but don't make my lips look dry.there longevity is good(but not the best),there's not much transfer unless I eat and drink like crazy,they're not patchy on lips and have an even,full coverage,also they have good packaging(no more loose caps like WetNWild Megalast Lipsticks),it doesn't break or melt easily and last but not least there's plenty of beautiful shades to choose from and it's just 3.5$
I doesn't feel much drying effect but I use lip balm every night
I'm definitely going to repurchase.

Mascara -Paula's Choice -MegaLength Mascara

I absolutely love this mascara and can't seem to find it to purchase it again. It lasts forever without getting clumpy or dry in the tube. It does NOT clump on my eyelashes and does not smudge. It is the best mascara I have ever used in some 40 plus years.

Brows -L'Oreal Paris -Brow Stylist Sculptor

I just heard this product has been discontinued---arooooo! I have eyebrows that stop halfway across where they should be, so I end up having to draw the second half on, which makes having a good color match really important. I have medium brown hair, but it's ashy with dark blonde streaks, so most brunette brow pencils look super dark and kind of reddish on me. This brow pencil in blonde was an amazing taupe color that blended beautifully with my natural brow hair, and the consistency of the pencil was soft and a little gel-like so it went on smoothly and evenly. The clear gel pencil on the other end helped tamp down my brow hairs so they stayed in place all day. I should have stocked up--I'm almost at the end of this product and no other brow product I've tried has come close to this amazing taupe/ash brown color. I'm so bummed--this was great while it lasted!


Cleansers -DHC -Deep Cleansing Oil

I've used a lot of cleansing oils, and to me, this ranks somewhere in the middle. It's an effective cleanser, a bit more drying than most, and is harder to rinse off than others but will eventually come off without needing a double cleanse. I finished the bottle, but for my sensitive skin, I prefer Origins Clean Energy, Hylamide High Efficiency or Fresh Seaberry.

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Neocell Super Collagen Powder

This is a review for Vital Proteins collagen as there is no makeupalley review entry for it. Vital Proteins is fairly expensive, the payoff being that the beef is grass fed and pasture-raised. This was important to me because I read that collagen peptides can contain a lot of pesticides and hormones from the food that the cattle eat and injections they are given. In particular, the pesticide glyphosate is a concern. Glyphosate is known to mimic estrogen in the body, which can cause health concerns at high enough doses. (I have uterine and breast fibroids and I am trying to get rid of them, so I am trying to reduce any foods and cosmetic products that may lead to excess estrogen)

As for the prodjct itself I am not noticing much of a difference so far but it's possible the skin on my face is a bit thicker (only 2 weeks use so far). It certainly isn't doing any harm, and the product is supposed to be good for gut health too, so that's a bonus. I think I am going to continue to take this, especially as studies apparently say that collagen peptides taken internally do show up in the skin. (I think one study said they increased collagen by 7 - 20 per cent or something, which I think is pretty good, and as well several other levels were increased.)

Moisturizers -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Bright Booster Oil Elixir

foto

This is such a great facial oil for a very reasonable price! I tried it when on offer at cvs (ending up about $5, which is amazing). The quality is super, the scent is nice, the hydration is great and the wear is excellent. I apply 2-3 drops after my Vichy serum, and before my moisturizer. It gives my skin a good boost of radianceand hydration and certainly keeps the flavors at bay. It works well with any moisturizer and sits well under foundation. I’ve even mixed it with other facial oils with nice results. I really like PF products, and yet I’m still super impressed by this oil. I would certainly recommend this oil and buy it again.

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand -{save} Hydrating Facial Cleanser

on 4/4/2019 3:42:00 PM

This cleanser is ultra soft and gentle. The texture is very running but I like it. It doesn't have a smell because it is fragrance free. So basically it feels a lot like water but you can definitely feel it removes all impurities. The skin isn't tight, feels soft and fresh! I'm wearing contact lenses and I usually take off my make-up with them on, so I don't like any oily products. This cleanser is so gentle, I always take my eye make-up off with it and never had any irritation in my eyes which is rare and it's one of the main reasons I will repurchase this cleanser!

Eyeliner -Urban Decay -Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner

Nice long lasting liquid eyeliner, the formula feels very comfortable and colour is pretty thick/pigmented. Because I do a thicker line this took much longer to apply, since the applicator is extremely thin and delicate. Overall long wearing nicely pigmented liner.

Beautiful black eyeliner that goes on smoothly, formula feels so comfortable to wear too. Portion is pretty generous and lasts forever, typical glass jar packaging. Comes with a hefty little brush too, was a great purchase overall!
