Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Casting Call 462

This is my first in the cheaper WnW nail line "wild shine". I have a ton of colors from WnW's megalast line - but these are like 98 cents at Walmart, so a few dollars cheaper.

Only reason I grabbed one of these was because the color came up as a great dupe for OPI's Ginger Bells, which is a really pretty perfect fall nailpolish color. I just applied it today - formula is GREAT! Just like the formula for the WnW megalast - these are creamy, apply great, not streaky - and for this color - one coat and done!!! I was SUPER impressed! I was afraid this line would be so-so since they are under a friggen dollar, but it was amazing! I was even more happy that the color is beautiful - almost a brown dusty rose pink. I was pretty stoked to find that my local Walmart carried this color still in-store, I thought it was going to be one I'd have to order online. Beautiful fall color!

I will have to check at home, but I think this pulls more pink than brown - and there may be several dupes in the Sally Hansen line for this. Two come to mind that I have - CSM Ginger Zinger (may be more pink) and then Miracle Gel - Per Suede (might be identical). But for 98 cents, I don't mind having another similar shade and it flatters my yellow skin tone beautifully! YAY!

Cleansers -Clarins - Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel

It's an alright gel... It cleanses fine. I didn't notice any significant skin improvement with it honestly, it just cleans your skin of dirt and oils at night. Smells really fresh and nice. I'd rather invest a few more dollars and get the cottonseed one by clarins since it works better and improves the skin more.

You do get that dry, tight skin feeling when you finish washing so you have to moisturize.

Medium coverage, velvet soft finish (not dewy and not matte either), and good quality. It settles into your skin, making my skin look naturally pretty and not like I'm wearing foundation. I like it a lot because it does look flawless. I live in a cold climate and in Winter it does look and stay on soft and nice, which I love, it's not drying at all. I would spray it on my hands and then apply to my face. It lasts a long time with a "fresh" look, meaning it doesn't settle into creases or cake up at the end of the day like my other foundations have, however if you're sweating, somehow it disappears off your face so maybe it's not for the gym.

This is one expensive foundation for the little amount you get out of it. The spray feature doesn't really allow you to use very little if you want a decent look... I personally don't get much use out of it if I want a fuller coverage. If I want to use it as a light bb cream style coverage then it lasts about a month of 5 days a week use, at most.

I don't really notice any scent with it, and it didnt irritate my sensitive skin. I like this foundation a lot actually...The only issue I have with is is the price for the amount honestly.


Cleansers -Clarins - Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed for Normal or Combination Skin

I don't ever really review anything as 5 stars but this product is actually as advertised. It's quite good. I have sensitive combination skin with occasional breakouts and this has helped that a lot.

The first time I used this I saw a difference right away with my face looking cleaner, and especially the next morning, my skin was softer and cleaner looking and feeling. My complexion had evened out a bit. You can feel your clean skin with your hands, literally, while you're washing your face which is interesting. With continued use my skin has really improved... The little skin colored pimples on my forehead disappeared. I get less redness and breakouts too. And the only change I made was buying this instead of my other cleansers.

My skin does feel a little tight after washing my face with this, but that's why it's important to moisturise right after you clean your face and it wont be a problem. I live in cold climates and it works fine for me with my usual moisturiser.

The only issue which for me is a non issue is that the scent is literally like mens aftershave, so if you're not into that then this may be an issue. But the scent fades overnight so you wont smell like this actually.

Better than my Chanel Le Volume. This is my new mascara. Really thick lashes.

This burned my eyes. Had to wash off after getting ready. Not good!


Moisturizers -Origins - VitaZing SPF 15 Energy-boosting moisturizer with Mangosteen

on 9/15/2017 1:02:00 PM

I just absolutely love this, the more I use it the more I love it. Perfect for my fair skin tone - brightens really beautifully. Just really lifts the skin and makes me feel alive even on my most weary mornings. I just don't have anything bad to say about it - it's not the cheapest but I would happily buy again. I would prefer a pump action tube to avoid wastage if I'm being picky. But it's 5 stars from me.


Foundations -Juice Beauty - PHYTO-PIGMENTS Flawless Serum Foundation

on 9/15/2017 12:57:00 PM

Hydrating, medium-full coverage. The finish is like Mac face and body but with much more coverage. The colors look much lighter on the skin than when first dispensed. I wear cream 08 and I am about nc20 in mac terms. Light skin with golden undertones. My skin is normal to dry with tendencies toward sensitivity and dehydration. I haven't been this happy with a foundation in a while. Also is similar to Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation in finish.

Hair -Redken - Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Intense

I have dyed, fine, dry, wavy, long, tangly hair. I use this as a hair mask (I apply it a couple hours before taking a shower) and oh my god?! The first time I used it I was amazed at the results.

I have to say though, using coconut oil as a hair mask I get a really similar outcome...

Shave Products -Dr. Bronner's - Shaving Soap Gel

This was a big fail for me. Very liquidy, drying and I got a shaving rash from it. I don't recommend this at all.
