Hair -Oribe -Maximista Thickening Spray

on 7/10/2018 11:59:00 AM


I have fine wavy hair that I blow dry everyday to straighten and I use products that give me volume. The Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray gives a nice boost to my hair without a heavy, gunky feel. It is weightless but didn't give my hair bounce - it gave me big hair that wasn't stiff yet stayed in place throughout the day. I felt I used a lot as the directions say to spray in sections from root to ends but it is worth it. It has the Oribe signature smell but isn't overpowering or as strong smelling as other Oribe products.

Bronzers -BeneFit Cosmetics -HOOLA

Went on patchy, wore patchy. I really dislike the cardboard box packaging. I like a big brush for bronzer for a diffused natural look and I could barely get the brush in the box. Shade was meh but the patchy wear of it really killed it.

I love nars laguna and Bobbi brown bronzers. I find the formula much more superior to this

Foundations -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Redness Anti-Aging Cream

on 7/10/2018 11:10:00 AM


This product works very well for hiding my rosacea and is not too greasy. It does somewhat draw attention to dry/flaky skin on my cheeks but otherwise works well. I have combo/sensitive skin.

Effective to reduce redness somewhat but was very greasy and somehow also drew attention to dry areas which made my skin flaky. Not an great look

Lipstick -Bobbi Brown -Crushed Lip Color - Babe

on 7/10/2018 11:00:00 AM

(Not to be confused with the shade Bare!)
I got this in the Bobbi Brown Crushing on Pink kit (Sephora BI 500-pt kit). Babe is a "medium blue pink" - but wears more like a rich rosy neutral with my AAB/NC25 coloring. Love this shade. It's bolder than I would normally pick for myself, it's not as "pink" as I was expecting from the name of the kit, and it's not too bold for work or everyday. Nice texture - smooth, creamy, comfortable. Good coverage with a single swipe. Wears a reasonably long time. Packaging is the typical BB shape with squared cross section for the body, but with matte black body and lid and the central band represents the color inside.

Foundations -Fenty Beauty -Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

on 7/10/2018 10:55:00 AM


While I appreciate Fenty Beauty's broad option of shades to choose from, this foundation did not work for me. I am very oily, acne-prone, and have crater pores. All my conditions are managed by skincare most of the time. But a proper foundation is still key.

I found this foundation to be cakey. Even worse, it sank into every imperfection on my face. The pores around my nose became emphasized. Even with a very matte setting powder, oil broke through within 3 hours.

I will not repurchase.

Lipstick -Bobbi Brown -Lip Color - Sandwash Pink #22

on 7/10/2018 10:12:00 AM


Sandwash Pink is on the light end of everyday MLBB nude for me (AAB/NC25). Creamy, semi-matte, wears well, good coverage, non-drying. Packaging is the typical BB shape with squared cross section for the body, glossy black base and lid and gold central band. I like the feel of BB's packaging, but I hate having to read the label to determine which shade it is.

Moisturizers -Yes To -Yes To Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer

on 7/10/2018 10:07:00 AM


My skin gets easily irritated after washing, so when I saw that this moisturizer was “calming” I thought it would be perfect to add I to my routine. The first time I used it was immediately after a shower, and my forehead (which gets most easily irritated) started to have a burning, raw sensation. I chalked it up to just getting out of the hot water, but noticed my face still didn’t feel any more moisturized. Days after that, I applied it to my face just before my primer as a barrier moisturizer, with fresh skin that hadn’t been just washed. The burning sensation came back, and my calm skin quickly turned red and bumpy with irritation. My skin isn’t particularly sensitive, so I definitely think this is the moisturizers fault.

Hair Treatments -Garnier -Garnier Fructis Strengthening Treat with Banana Extract

on 7/10/2018 10:02:00 AM

This is a wonderful, extremely hydrating hair mask that smells divine! The best thing about it is that it doesn't weigh my fine hair down but it's really nurturing without feeling heavy or greasy. Everything the first reviewer wrote is true: This mask can compete with high end ones without a doubt!
