Gels/Soaps -Softsoap -Ultra Rich Shea Butter Body Wash

on 2/16/2018 12:08:00 AM


Smells cheap.
You have to use extra product to get a decent lather.
It does not remove deodorant well at all.
After about 4days of use, I start to notice it leaves a film on the shower floor and it starts to get a bit slippery.
I would not recommend nor repurchase.

Lips -NYX -Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo

on 2/16/2018 12:06:00 AM


I pretty much wear red lipstick to go with my retro image, this is one tube in my arsenal. It’s a beautiful deep red but the formula is kind of drying and doesn’t reapply well. Nevertheless it lasts all day and doesn’t smear too much which are big pluses. Try it out if you want a classy red.

Liquid -Smashbox -Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

on 2/15/2018 11:38:00 PM


I have normal mature skin in decent shape, meaning that I don't have any obvious lines and no wrinkles. This foundation provides medium coverage, but even though it says "hydrating" I think it's best or younger or oilier skins. I don't find it particularly hydrating when I apply it with a burnishing foundation brush or beauty blender or fingers. It does NOT stand up to dry moderate Florida humidity even with a setting spray (Milani), and gets quite mask-y and enhances any facial sag or laugh lines after a few hours wear. It's not the worst foundation I've used, but I won't rebuy. I much prefer Dermablend.

Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees -Tinted Lip Balm

on 2/15/2018 11:27:00 PM


Each and every time I used it I've ended up with a severe rash around my lips. But the end of the day my lips were looking like they were lined with a dark pink lip liner. They've got puffy and hurt. It takes me three to four days to recover from using this balm. Too bad I didn't understand the cause right away and were using it weekly for more than a month. Terrible!

Treatments (Face) -Cosrx -One Step Pimple Clear Pad

on 2/15/2018 11:23:00 PM


I used to have a love-hate relationship with this product because I thought it was too oily for my oily-acne prone skin. however, when I purchase the 2nd jar, I used it in a different way, I have really bad cystic acne on both my cheeks, and I put this as a mask on the breakout areas, in just one night it helps to minimise the size of the cystic acne!! I was so surprised by this! this really works if I use as a mask on my acne, but when I use it as a toner, it works just fine. however, the key to not "feel" oily is to let it absorb into the skin before putting next product. the way I use it, when I feel lazy at night and don't feel like using moisturiser, I just swap this on my face, then use another clean pad to compress the breakout area and leave it overnight (even without the moisturiser I'll feel moisturised already), the next day it'll calm my acne. if you know how to use it its gonna be soooo good.

Primer/ Corrector -Almay -Smart Shade Perfect & Correct Primer

on 2/15/2018 11:20:00 PM


I was so excited to buy this. I really thought it would set my face evenly ready for foundation. It actually does nothing! Being a person who hates throwing away something perfectly good (even though this isn't) I'm still using it. I figure if nothing else it adds a layer of something that can't be all that bad, right? Maybe it smooths out my skin a tad so my foundation goes on more smoothly? I have no idea but in any case I'm going to use up the bottle because the stuff is pretty in the bottle and is even pretty when it comes out. The smell that others report? Yea, bad but goes away quickly so it doesn't bother me. This is definitely not a product for any kind of color-correcting even though that's what it says it does. Oh, well... Ya win some, ya lose some. For the price I'm not fussed.

Tinted Moisturizer -Physicians Formula -Organic Wear - Light to Natural

on 2/15/2018 11:08:00 PM


It's taken me a while but I think I really like this. Just a dime size squirt in my palm massaged over both hands and then applied to my face seems to provide a nice overall light coverage. I like that it dampens the look of my age spots and freckles without looking un-natural, or cakey (I'm a minimal make-up person). My skin just looks more smooth and even. I will definitely admit that it's very oily and does make my skin look dewy. I don't prefer that or the oily feeling it give my skin so I've been using a translucent powder on top and that does the trick. I'm comforted by the 15 spf as well. It does have an odd distinctive smell as others have reported, but I don't mind it.

Lipstick -Milani -Color Statement Lipstick (All Colors)

on 2/15/2018 10:59:00 PM


I have two of these in Nude Creme and Matte Kiss. The Nude Creme isn't "nude" anything on my lips- it's straight up baby pink. This is fine, but was a letdown as it wasn't what I expected or wanted. The Matte Kiss is red, and is highly pigmented but a little on the dry side.

Overall, they're decent quality but not exactly consistent from one lipstick to another. For this reason it will not be a repurchase, but is otherwise a good product if you don't mind the element of surprise and flexibility in shade range from one lipstick tube to the next.

Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild -Bare it All 902C

on 2/15/2018 10:46:00 PM


What a hidden drugstore gem! This is a staple in my arsenal of nude cosmetics. It stays in my bag no matter what.

I choose this cheapie but goodie over a lot of other nudes because it's a flattering shade without being too noticeable, is office-friendly, and is pretty long-wearing due to its drier formula.

It is kind of drying, but it could be a lot worse. Fingers crossed that they keep on making it.
