Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Visibly Firm Night Cream with Copper [DISCONTINUED]

on 3/16/2018 12:23:00 AM

Just opened my last jar of Neutrogena visibly firm night cream...I LOVE THIS PRODUCT...and it's been discontinued since 2011. Yes, I stocked up on that many jars way back when. They last me about 9 months each! Guess I'll need a new product in December. Please bring it back!

Fragrances -Kat Von D -Sinner

on 3/16/2018 12:21:00 AM


The ingredients sound opulent and naughty...but its a thin baby powder floral. Its like a cheap watered down body spray. There is a whisper of dusty cinnamon cocoa and white florals at the beginning which was promising. But then nothing. Weak throw and poor lasting ability, around 1.5 - 2 hours on me.

I was pretty shocked to realise the Kat Von D brand thinks a fragrance that smells like a powdered baby in diapers is "Sinful" or "Sexy". Uggg it makes me feel like a 2 year old bloated on sweets. Or a 99 year old. I feel a bit gross thinking about it. If you like Baby Powder Florals, Avon's Vanilla Soft Musk has more personality and is much longer lasting.

Blush -Marc Jacobs -Air blush in 500 Lush and Libido

on 3/16/2018 12:10:00 AM


I am a blush fanatic. I have blushes from many brands, including many from Chanel and Dior to choose from, yet this one is getting everyday millage and the others are gathering dust. I have found that with age (I'm 40) I need to be more careful of blush that makes me look ruddy. I have stopped using many of my go to shades. Lancome Shimmer Pink Pool has fallen by the way side, for instance. But this baby is perfect. A very clean, cool pink. It is somewhat shockingly doll pink the pan, but applies naturally, especially after blending. I have the best luck by using a precision blush brush and dotting along the apples of my cheeks, then blending. Yes, it's quite pigmented but I wear this under powder, never over, and this works perfectly for a natural skin glow. The finish is satin. Very smooth, no shimmer. Anyway, shade's a subjective thing, but the formula is just outstanding. It is my softest, most bendable blush and easily tops the formula of the Chanel JCs. The compact is kind of strange! No brush and wide rectangle size. However, really who needs all the useless little blushes that come with makeup?! I would totally buy this again, though I believe this will last me for years.

Mascara -Cover Girl -Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara

on 3/15/2018 11:35:00 PM


This one is a really good mascara if your eyes aren't as sensitive as mine.
It gives volume, it gives definition and length with zero clumps, it wears from day to night. But if I wear it for a day I have to go eye makeup free at least during two following because of how badly my eyes get irritated. It smells kind of funny.
I'm tossing it, but I totally get what the hype is about. Worth trying.

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -Spa of the World - Japanese Camellia Cream

on 3/15/2018 11:30:00 PM


I love how light texture and subtle scent of the lotion are. The whipped-like texture makes me feel pampered everytime i put it on my body. It does moisturize well enough for an office girl like me who has to stay put working in an air-conditioner a whole day, 5days a week. I am quite a subtle girl when talking about scents and perfume. This lotion has a light subtle scent of the camillia. Not overpowering at all but it lasts long thrugh out the day. The scent is just light that lingers on my skin. And It leaves my skin feel cool for a few minutes after the applicaion, which is quite suit for summertime in my country. No greasy feeling afterwards. OK... It tends towards a little pricey though but it lasts me a couple of months for a jar. So definitely I repurchase again and again.

Toners -Mario Badescu -Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater

It feels sticky and uncomfortable on the skin. Plus, it broke me out. I don’t understand the hype.

Foundations -Unlisted Brand -Pur - Bare It All 4 in 1 Skin Perfecting Foundation

on 3/15/2018 10:37:00 PM


This is the big girl foundation! When it's properly applied it creates a gorgeous, long-lasting finish that looks natural and fresh all day. When it's not properly applied, it's a cakey, streaky nightmare. To get that perfected finish, I use a rich, oil free moisturizer to prime my face, then I apply this foundation with the Bare Minerals Complexion Perfector Brush. The key is to use a precision brush with a tapered tip to get a smooth coverage around the nose and eyes. The thing to remember with this foundation is this: less is more! A tiny little dab (think lentil size) on my foundation brush gives me the perfect amount of coverage and looks great. If I use a beauty blender or similar type sponge, it just doesn't blend right for me. While I love this foundation very much, it takes time and some effort to get it on right. It's not the kind of foundation I can throw on quickly in the morning and run out the door. The high quality coverage, natural looking finish and long-lasting wear-ability makes this foundation well worth the effort in my opinion, but I still keep a quick and easier-to-blend foundation as backup for times when I need to get out the door in a hurry.

Brows -Glossier -Boy Brow

on 3/15/2018 10:22:00 PM


$16.00 for 0.11 oz.

I had no idea this would be so small. It looks like a sample from Sephora. I got the color blonde. Don't expect this to fill in your brows or hold them in place all that well either. The color was ok, not dark or red like some blonde colors but I considered it a total waste of money. Essence Make Me Brow in Blondy Brows is just as good if not better and it is $2.99 for .13 oz. This doesn't thicken mine or fill them in anymore than the Essence does, but it does hold them in place a little, and just barely a little better But surely not 13.00 more better. If you want more hold just get Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara or splurge on ABH clear gel, but i don't think there is much difference and Maybelline is only around 5.00 vs. 22.00 for ABH.

Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand -Earth's Recipes-Waterful Sun Gel

on 3/15/2018 10:20:00 PM

I am challenged by sunscreens as I do best with purely physical ingredients and zero to few silicones. I tried this however because of good reviews on Amazon and some Korean skincare blogs. It smoothes on easily and absorbs fast with a minimal amount of greasiness, and does not ball up under makeup I add afterwards. I wore it straight for 2 weeks without any breakout or clogging, which is great --for me! I have 60 year old skin that has battled cystic acne forever, and have found that lot of my trouble comes from silicones and certain oils, rather rather than oily skin. Unfortunately, some of the chemical ingredients in this sunscreen made my eyes burn towards the end of the day, so I probably won't' use it all the time. But I would recommend it to any one with serious acne or clogging issues.

Eyeliner -Marc Jacobs -Highliner Gel Crayon Eyeliner - Blacquer

on 3/15/2018 10:11:00 PM


This is hands down the BEST crayon eyeliner EVER! I have tried many other brands, Lancôme, Dior, MakeUp Forever, and applying them to my waterline was a struggle, they were never black enough and never smooth enough. Those that were super black would also transfer and melt and make me look like a panda bear hours later.

Now this one - this one is PERFECT! Super smooth, makes the application absurdly easy. And it's as black as you can get, it doesn't melt and it's doesn't transfer. One more amazing product by Marc Jacobs!
