This is my go to eyebrow product. I bought it once and never looked back. I use the dark brown and it last alllllll day, even when I go to the gym after work and sweat, my eyebrows still look great and are still on (unless i wipe it off). I love this product, the duo lets you shade the front of your eyebrows (towards your nose) lighter which creates a gradient. Will buy again and again


Fragrances -Tom Ford - Neroli Portofino

Luckily I did not purchase this as I was able to sample this. This is a very expensive fragrance. Glad I did not take the plunge. This smells very similar to Child on me, if not an exact dupe. This is a skin scent, no projection at all. Child has more potency and projection than this. Very comforting, when you want something to remind you of the summer in the tropics or those lazy days on the beach.


Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

I bought this because of Tati's review and I wasn't disappointed. The packaging and brush look very similar to Too Faced BTS, but the formula is not the same. This one performs much better in my opinion - Too faced doesn't layer well. It gets spidery and clumpy on me. I tested Lash Paradise by doing three coats just to see how well it layered, and it worked so nicely. I found only one clump near the outer corner of one eye. It's unreal. It didn't add much volume for me, but that's not what I look for in a mascara. Length is more important to me, and the length this mascara adds is ridiculous. They're so long. It doesn't weigh down my lashes and straighten them out either, like some mascaras do. Really pleased with this. I have yet to see whether it layers well over a mascara base - that may add some volume.

Sunscreen -La Roche-Posay - Anthelios XL SPF50+ Comfort Cream (Very High Facial Protection For Dry Skin)

My skin is super sensitive when it comes to sunblock.....some will gives me rashes almost immediately while others leave my skin super dry or super greasy with additional pimples....after trying numerous sunblocks this is the only one that i can use without any immediate bad reaction. But if i consecutively use it for couple of days then my skin will still get dehydrated and more bumpy...i only uses this when i no i will be outdoor for the day or if i used acid the night before. My skin behaves the best without any sunblock, i rather my skin just age normally instead of having crazy irritation. This is still my only go-to when i need and will always keep a bottle handy.

Liquid -Maybelline - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

I have combination skin and this works pretty good for me. I do prime my face before and set my foundation with powder as well as setting spray because I know how oily my face can get. The initial application is matte, through-out the day it does get oily but its just the normal amount, and it doesn't look cakey or runny. By the end of the day it is still on my face and hasn't slipped off which i appreciate. The packaging could be better with a pump.


Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra Dry Skin

I have extremely dry skin, which is also sensitive and acne prone. So I struggle to find products that moisturize me without aggravating my skin.

This moisturizer is not moisturizing enough for me, as I still see flakes of dry skin, BUT it is the best moisturizer I have found so far. I am still on my hunt for something even more moisturizing that works for me, but for now, I am enjoying this.

I love that it is fragrance free, but wish it came in a tube, instead of a jar.

Gel was a bust. Might work for someone who has eyebrows. Customer service leaves alot to be desired.


Moisturizers -Deciem - The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

I love this moisturizer. When my skin is feeling stressed I can count on NMF to bring it back into balance. I don't use it every day - only because I have a cupboard full of other products I need to use up (or throw away - & I hate such needless waste. Landfills are already overflowing without me adding to them!!).

This moisturizer is true to its word. Lots of skin-friendly ingredients that will help to restore your skin's barrier function and bring it back to normal.
It wears beautifully under makeup during the day and makes a great final layer at night.
The only thing I'd add to other reviews is to give it a good shake prior to each use. Sometimes it “settles” and without mixing can go on a bit waxy.

I really love this brand for its authenticity.
Women are sick of being ripped off. A recent search of a “high end” brand was offering a $185.00 serum that was effectively no more than sugar and water.
Let the the high-end rip-off merchants snipe all they like about companies like Deciem/The Ordinary. The reason this brand has gone through the roof is because women are sick of being held to ransom by the lure of the golden carrot (ie: the fountain of youth “restored”) and paying exorbitant prices because we fall for the slick advertising and outrageous promises that are never going to deliver.

I don't always agree with Paula's Choice/Beautypedia statements but one thing that resonated with me (....and it could be ANY high-end brand out there) was Clarins:
“...trust Clarins to find the most obscure botanical (plant, flower or seed) and build an ENTIRE skincare range around it, regardless of whether the science supports any efficacy, benefits or results” rang true.

I have a cupboard full of Clarins products, which I paid top dollar for and which are no more effective than drugstore and supermarket brands like Olay (who are actually producing some VERY high quality skincare these days for a third of the price).

TAKE NOTE HIGH-END - your days are numbered. Either come to the party and bring your prices down or watch your sales being gouged by authentic brands like The Ordinary.

Sugar + Water does NOT = $185 bucks worth.

Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Youth Code Texture Perfector Day/Night Cream

This makes my skin SO SOFT! It broke me out the second week (I don't really get acne) but it went away the week after that ("it gets worse before it gets better") I bought the serum afterwards, and I don't find it does anything, but I use them together because I bought it and may as well is it!


Powder -Unlisted Brand - Eshiko Ultra High Definition Powder

on 6/26/2017 1:43:00 PM

Finally received this in the mail and it was in a clear lined brown envelope inside a plastic envelope. no bubble wrap, nothing to protect it and it was crushed beyond any chance of salvaging even a little of it. White powder was everywhere and my mail carrier about flipped out. They're telling me they've NEVER EVER had a package broken and that I broke it. I AM FURIOUS!!! If my carrier wasn't a local and knew me, I'd bet money police would have been called since this stuff is like smoke dust! The mail carriers comment was "I hope this isn't anthrax!" DEAR Lord! I will NEVER do business with ESHIKO again. I'm still trying to get my money back and have to get a letter from my carrier stating it was busted when I received it.
this has really topped off an already irritating incident.
