Toners -SKII -Facial Treatment Clear Lotion

This has a cumulative effect. The first week I didn’t notice a difference but now after using it every morning for more than 6 wks my skin has become brighter, softer more even toned balanced pores smaller and glowing. It’s summer and my combo acne prone skin can’t handle moisturizers, this toner allows me to skip moisturizer. Ive also experienced less breakouts while Using this. just wish it wasn’t so darn exepensive. ;(

Lip Gloss -MAC -Explicit lipglass

I just love this color, on me, it's kind of a taupy color with a purple shimmer..very flattering. I wore this color years ago, and just repurchased because I forgot how nice it looked on me.

Cleansers -LUSH -Angels on Bare Skin

I've used up so many tubs of this and i still love it. I find that it really helps to clear up irritation breakouts and calm the skin. Just so you know, i have oily acne-prone skin that is pretty reactive. I recently used some products from The Ordinary and something didn't agree with my skin. I broke out pretty bad, especially around the cheeks and jaws. I bought a drugstore cleanser to help calm my skin but it only aggravated things.

Then i remembered Lush and my previous great results from AOBS and decided to give it another go. After 2 weeks of use, the breakout has cleared up, my skin is smoother and more even-toned.
Folks, granted that some of you may indeed be allergic to something in it, i would say that if you don't like it otherwise, it could be more of a method thing. I only use AOBS in the mornings when i don't have makeup on. I can't imagine using it on a fully made-up face. It doesn't even make sense. I normally use an oil-based remover on my makeup before using my regular cleanser anyway.

I actually look forward to using this every morning. It smells divine. Can't understand the people who claim that it reeks. I pinch off a piece the size of a large pea. If you use it once a day and can't finish it in 3 months, i would say that you are using too little.
Anyway, always use dry hands when pinching some off from the tub and store it in a cool dry place...any moisture you allow into the pot will encourage growth of mold. i then mush it up in my palm with only about 2-3 drops of water to form a creamy paste. then i apply it to dry skin...yes dry...i find that if my skin is already wet, it doesn't stick and falls off, making a mess. Then as i massage it in, i run my hand quickly through the water till its slightly wet and then continue to massage. This way, your skin is not too wet or too dry that its difficult to rub it in. Really take the time to massage it in gently, adding little bits of water when it starts to get dry. Then wash off very thoroughly.

I swear it leaves my skin smoother, looking brighter...almost air-brushed and all without any tightness or discomfort. I then follow through with a toner and my moisturizer. I don't find it very oily or that it leaves behind any oily residue..Just fresh, bright skin. And this is coming from someone with superrr oily skin.

I will definitely keep repurchasing this. Its like having a spa treatment every morning. I really enjoy using this. Its very therapeutic.

Styling Products -L'Oreal -Mythic Oil

I have tried the Mythic Oil and on a superficial level I would say I loved it: I have super dry, coarse hair and it managed to tame it, give it shine and hydrate it, make it more manageable.

BUT

if you look closely and with a more educated eye at the ingredient list you're not going to be happy at all.
it has 6 HIGH RISK fragrance ingredients (fragrance is usually no-no because it has great irritation potential) so it's formulation is really not that luxurious, as the ingredients aren't exactly okay.

Now I'm using Kerastase Ultimate Oil which has a way more cleaner ingredient list (not to mention safer and high-quality) but the price is according to that as well: double than the Mythic Oil with similar effects (Kerastase a bit better, however, in terms of texture, lightness and hydration).

Mixed feelings about this product because of the ingredient list...

Just recently discovered this lipglass. It’s the perfect nude for my fair and cool toned skin with blonde hair and I’ve gotten so many compliments on it as well. Gives the perfect pouty glossy lips as well.

Eye Shadow -Juvia's Place -The Masquerade Palette

(This is a review for the mini that I wrote, decided to copy/paste it here too since it's applicable because the formulas are the same.)

The best palette I've bought in this price range by FAR, and one of the best palettes I've bought overall.

The colorful two top rows have a formula highly reminiscent of Urban Decay Electric (another one of my faves). The metallics are breathtakingly beautiful! So reflective, so pigmented and vibrant. They last quite well on my eyes even without a glitter glue or tacky primer (normally shimmers crease very quickly on my hooded eyes if I don't use one or the other). The colorful mattes are so pigmented and blend seamlessly.

The bottom two rows of neutrals are also very good. The shimmers are just as good as the colorful ones (albeit not as exciting). The mattes are definitely less pigmented and a couple of the browns look similar to each other, but, they still blend amazingly and are definitely buildable and you can get a good amount of pigment from them if you so desire. I really appreciate the neutrals because I can get a full eye look from this palette alone if necessary.

I would advise everyone to get the mini, it's not "mini" at all. It's still the largest palette in my collection and I don't see myself panning it any time soon. I can only imagine how enormous the original one is.

I bought this on clearance at Target for 20.00. It states it is mousse texture,but more like paste-I checked the expiration date,but that was still a year away. It made my skin look awful-showed every pore,looked very creepy,when my skin does not look that way with no makeup! I hope I can return this.


Cleansers -Estee Lauder -Re-Nutriv Intensive Hydrating Creme Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

This is a comforting cleanser. I use it in the evening, after using a separate makeup remover. It feels soft and pleasant on my skin. The cream cleanses very well.
