Lip Treatments -Dior -Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm

on 3/24/2018 2:45:00 PM


I adore this product.
I bought it in matte raspberry and it’s the most amazing touch of color ever.
It lasts considerably more than other similar products.
And it moisturizes.
A must have.

Highlighters -Makeup Revolution -Blushing Hearts Highlighter

on 3/24/2018 2:37:00 PM


I have this product in the shade Goddess of Faith, which is a pinky champagne. I love it. It doesn't accentuate texture at all, which is so hard to find in a highlighter. It's more of a metallic finish, no matter how little you apply it'll still be quite intense. If a blinding highlight is your cup of tea, go ahead and try this! It's not powdery at all and can be nicely blended into the skin, even though it's intense, so it doesn't look like a stripe on your face. On me it lasts all day. It is also extremely affordable, especially for a huge 10g of product. I'm not a fan of the bulky packaging and loose cap - definitely not travel friendly - but it's not a big deal at home. Overall, really satisfied with my purchase. The only reason why I said I wouldn't repurchase it is because it'll take ages to use it up anyway.

Treatments -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Biotin (All brands)

on 3/24/2018 2:23:00 PM


Used Biotin 5000 MCG for about 6 months and gave me CYSTIC ACNE I have never experienced before! Started taking this summer 2017 and I drink about 1.5 to 2 litres a day of water, sometimes more sometimes less and I eat relatively healthy.

After about three weeks I started experiencing horrible painful cystic/nodular acne on my cheeks. I do have oily skin so I am acne prone on my t-zone, but I have always had smooth clear cheeks despite acne on my forehead. Then after taking biotin I started getting huge painful nodular cysts which were under the skin so were impossible to treat with topical creams (eg benzoyl peroxide/salicylic acid) or squeeze. If I even TRIED squeezing them I would end up with huge dark scars which would last for months. When one spot went another would pop up almost immediately. I am still working on clearing up the scars today.

I stopped taking biotin about a month ago and have had no new spots. I initially thought this acne was due to hormones and stress, but now I can definitely say it's due to the biotin.

If you're going to take biotin BE WARNED you may experience cystic acne that will not go away unless you stop taking it! As for hair and nails, my hair did not grow any faster than usual and my nails were still brittle (but probably because I have had a acrylics a few times).

Lip Liners -NARS -Precision Lip Liner in Vence

on 3/24/2018 2:17:00 PM

This formula is a tremendous improvement over the original Nars pencils which were very dry. Somehow this pencil manages to glide over my lips effortlessly but not become ridiculously soft like other soft texture pencils I've tried from By Terry and MUFE. Although I tend to stick to neutral liners, the color range is excellent. The website describes this color as neutral cinnamon. I think it is slightly pinker than cinnamon, but not too pink. I've only used it with YSL Tatouage in #23 Singular Taupe. The Nars pencil is almost the exact same color. They combo makes for a neutral brownish pink, lovely and neutral, but definitely not "dead lips".

Lotions/ Creams -Vichy -Hand & Nail Cream

on 3/24/2018 2:11:00 PM

Because I love the Vichy body-skin care products that launched in the past couple of years (in the peachy-pink packaging), when I saw a double pack of this hand/nail cream and saw that the sizes of the tubes was a smaller, convenient size to carry with me at school (each tube is 40 mls), I wanted to give these a try. I wash my hands a great deal at school so hand creams are a must and I go through them quickly so price and effectiveness are both factors. Sadly, while I'd repurchase this hand cream when it's on sale because it's "okay", it's not really amazing and I don't think I'd consider paying full price a tube. It's not very moisturizing at all and while it claims to be for hands and nails, it doesn't do anything for my nails (which are bare) and actually seems to make them look drier and leaves my hands feeling almost "powdery".

Moisturizers -Drunk Elephant -Lala Retro Whipped Cream

on 3/24/2018 2:04:00 PM


My first time buying this product, it still had the old jar packaging. While I did like the product, the unsanitary packaging kind of skeeved me out. When I found out that Drunk Elephant had remade the package, I knew I had to repurchase. This is my favorite moisturizer for my dry, itchy, winter skin. It is not heavily fragranced like many high end skincare products. The only real con is the cost. This moisturizer is crazy expensive, but for my skin, it is worth it.

Liquid -Yves Saint Laurent -All Hours Full Coverage Matte Foundation

on 3/24/2018 1:49:00 PM


Only giving one point for color match. This stuff was terrible. I ended up returning it the next day. Sure the staying power is ok but right after I applied it it felt like I had laquer on my face. Looked very fake and obvious I was wearing makeup even though the color match was on point. Felt like I had a mask of heavy gunk on my face. Yuck!!!

Shampoo -Paul Mitchell -Instant Moisture Daily Shampoo

on 3/24/2018 1:45:00 PM

Not sure what's up with all of the negative reviews...this is a vertially unscented shampoo that has a hybrid gel-cream consistency. It makes my virgin roots but very processed ends feel so soft without being weighed down. I get no frizz with this or many flyaways. I used to use the Lavender Mint shampoo from Paul Mitchell which has a thicker consistency and stronger sent of essential oils but decided to try one of his original lines as the price difference was pretty significant.

Tinted Moisturizer -TheBalm -BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer

on 3/24/2018 1:42:00 PM


Can't say enough good things about this product. I have oily/combo skin and this is lovely. Very light on the skin with light -medium buildable coverge. Coverage is very natural. Great for sensetive skin as this did not break me out. Also great for people with yellow undertones. This has a satin/matte finish. You also get a a good amount of product for the price.

BB Cream -It Cosmetics -Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

on 3/24/2018 1:37:00 PM


All I can say is this was a big bucket of nope. Very hydrating and seems to leave a slight shimmery/dewy finish. I didn't feel this product set at all. Accentuated pores. Yuck!! Glad I just got a sample.
