Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand -Well at Walgreens Clear Zinc Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50

on 3/20/2018 12:18:00 PM

This is the best sunscreen I have ever used for my face. I have dry, sensitive, clog prone and acne prone skin. My skin is finally starting to clear up from some persistent hormonal acne, but I've been left with stubborn scarring around my jawline and cheeks. I wanted to use a daily sunscreen to help protect my healing skin, especially because I use chemical exfoliants, but everything I've tried broke me out almost immediately. This is the only one I have been able to use every morning with no break outs or clogged pores, and the scent is very mild. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized and healthy with no greasy residue and no white cast. I've even fallen asleep without taking it off and my skin was fine the next day. I will continue to repurchase.

Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand -Farsali Unicorn Essence

on 3/20/2018 10:42:00 AM


I just finished the bottle of this I impulse bought from Sephora last year. Honestly, it feels nice on the skin, smells nice, and the ritual of applying it was fun, but it didn’t do anything. It was nice while it lasted, but I have no need to repurchase.

Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Ariana Grande - Moonlight

on 3/20/2018 9:29:00 AM

Out of the Ariana Grande perfume range [Ari, Frankie, Sweet Like Candy & Sweet Like Candy LE], I enjoy Moonlight the most scent-wise: it is very similar to her other perfumes as they all contain long notes of marshmallow and vanilla, but this time the fruit notes are more distinct and have a nice fresh & juicy feel to them, rather than being candy-like lie they are in all of her other releases, which tones the sweetness down a bit overall.

The biggest plus for this fragrance is that the floral notes aren't quite as jumbled when compared with her earlier releases - the floral background is still fairly close and quiet, but I can pick out the starring peony and what I think is rose and possibly honeysuckle?

Official scent notes; Rich Black Currant, Juicy Plum, Fluffy Marshmallow, Fresh Peony, Creamy Sandalwood, Black Amber and Sensual Vanilla.

So the actual fragrance is lovely, has an all-seasons appeal and easy-to-wear viibe, is reasonably priced and the pearl-toned-holographic-treatment-and-lilac-puff-ball combination of the bottle design is "pick me up and buy me NOW for display" cuteness, so what wrong with the rating for my review? Unfortunately the longevity and sillage are both really poor - in under two hours it's gone. The Ari collection of hair and body mists wears better on my skin. Such a shame, as this had such a pleasant start.

Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand -Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50

on 3/20/2018 8:06:00 AM

I was looking for a primer and sunscreen in one and I happen to try this after one of the youtube makeup videos mentioned it as an amazing primer. It applies matte, has a nice soft feel to it and it makes my makeup apply well (I use IT CC cream in light). It has a tint, but I am NC 25-30 and it blends well into my warm skin tone. I would say I get my oil breakthroughs at 6 hours, then I have to blot (I have very oily skin). It doesn’t make my makeup patchy but I notice that the sides of my nose have lost any coverage. After using it for a couple of days, it reminded me of a primer I used last summer, which was Replenix Ultimatte sunscreen, which isn’t advertised as a primer. Guys, this is the Exact. Same. Product. I mean, the ingredient list is identical. This is where my disappointment lies... it is a very expensive primer and I can buy replenix at 30$ with discounts in various online stores! So between the oil breakthrough and price, I give this 3 lippies.

lovely packaging but nothing special about thisbalm. Smells nice but there are other natural organic good quality balms and salves I have bought like Egyptian Magic that work just as well.

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -OC Eight

I had high hopes for this Bc of the good reviews on it & that Paula lady recommended it for oily skin control & it was advertised as being used on television 📺 on American idol I personally have very oily skin & it's out of control greasy in the summer time 😖& stupid Clinique discontinued their t zone shine control which was a great 👍 product to absorb the grease ! & I've been trying to find a decent alternative to my Clinique! & so I bought this stuff hoping it would be good, but unfortunately it didn't work for my oily skin 😐! & I tried it like 3 x the first time was last year during the heat of the summer & it didn't do a thing! & it felt like it made my face oiler! 😖In fact it feels like a lotion going on & doesn't dry down matte like the Clinique oil control did 👎🏻! & the second time I used it was during the cold of winter ❄️ & it did seem to work ok but I think Bc my skin was drier than & recently I tried it again & I don't like it bc it feels heavy on my face & doesn't control the oil under my powder foundation 👎🏻! What a waste of money! Unless you have only slightly oily skin it might work but for truly oily skin this won't work! It didn't work on me 👎🏻

Polishes -Unlisted Brand -Pahlish - Eternity

on 3/19/2018 10:16:00 PM

Eternity is a pretty bright purple jelly formula polish with bright copper shimmer. The color is very intense and rich. I did deduct a lippie because the shimmer wasn’t as evident as I hoped it would be even in brighter lights.

The formula was very good. There was no running or pooling and polish did not drip off the brush. It applied smoothly and evenly. As with jelly formula polish it was sheer on the first. With two coats it was fully opaque on my short nails. If you have longer nails you might need an additional coat for opacity.

Eternity comes packaged in a standard nail polish bottle. The brush is wider than average, somewhat like OPI’s Pro Wide Brush. The wand is on the short side but it works well for application. Sometimes I think that the shorter brushes make ease of application easier.

Though I like the intense, rich color of Eternity the fact that the shimmer really didn’t show up in any lighting was disappointing. As such, I would not repurchase this one. However it is a high quality polish and worth the $10 price tag is you love a rich violet colored polish.

I got good wear from this polish, 5 days and no chips. Removal was easy and there was no staining.

Polishes -Unlisted Brand -LynBDesigns - It’s Hard For A Good Man To Be A King

on 3/19/2018 10:02:00 PM

It’s Hard For A Good Man To Be A King is LynBDesigns contribution to the Black Panther Box done with Bee’s Knees Polish. It is a pretty blue/purple base loaded with various colors of holo glitter in various sizes. The holo glitter colors are pink, green, blue and purple.

The formula was nice, not too thick or too thin. There was no running or pooling and it applied smoothly and evenly. The holo glitter spread evenly across the nail bed with no extra effort on my part. The first coat was sheer but even. With the 2nd coat it was fully opaque.

Packaging is a standard nail polish bottle with a standard polish brush. It isn’t innovative but it works well.

I really like the color of this polish and the ease of application. This bottle retails for $10 and IMO is well worth the cost. I would definitely repurchase this one but since it is LE it’s doubtful it will be available again.

I will update in a few days on wear, removal and staining.

Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand -Dr. Lili Fan-Probiotic Recovery Cream

on 3/19/2018 5:59:00 PM


I received in an ipsy bag, it is a generous sample size and use it all up. I cannot attest to the anti-aging claim, since I only used a sample size. It was an okay moisturizer. I has a slight medicine smell, I felt that it tingled when first applied, but for it being a thinner, gel like consistency, I felt it took while for my skin to absorb. It really did nothing for my skin, it did not provide the moisture to my dry areas around my mouth, but it did not clog my pores which is a plus for me.

Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand -EyEnvy Conditioner

on 3/19/2018 2:30:00 PM


This works amazing. My sister bought it and I was shocked how well it worked so I tried. I get comments about my lashes all the time now. It is so shocking it actually works. I wish I could post photos.

It takes a minimum of 6 weeks of daily use then suddenly just when you feel it was a total rip off...ta da!

They not only get longer but thicker, so you hardly need eyeliner, which I keep to a minimum so my eyelashes are even more visible. Since I am over 40 and my eyebrows are a liitle thin, I srarted using it on my eyebrows just to see, well you can definately tell I have some thick eyebrow hairs. Fyi it takes more work to curl them because they are so much thicker...I can live with that.

Liquid -Unlisted Brand -LA Girl Pro matte foundation

on 3/19/2018 11:02:00 AM


I LOVE THIS. I really do. It makes me so excited to finally found another foundation that I love. That doesn't happen too often cause I'm so damn picky..

This foundations glides on my skin like a dream. With a mattifying primer this is a true matte but with a lovely soft focus finish that I actually never really found in a foundation before. Without a mattifying primer this has the lovely suede finish they talked about on the bottle. Highlighter looks stunning on this foundation.

This is amazing for textured skin, I found that with a pore filler primer, I actually look poreless. Like, airbushed.
It surprises me how this is buildable without getting cakey.
Normaly I wear one coat in other foundations because otherwise it will make all my pores and fine lines just so much worse. Not cute..
With this I can easily wear 2 layers and it still looks natural and smooth.

I find the coverage really good.. Maybe it's different for everybody but this covers my freckles and redness so good. To me it's a true high medium-full coverage foundation. Double wear (Which I find cakey and don't like) can't cover my imperfection like this can. To me the coverage is on the same level as the YSL all hours foundation.

The first time I tried this foundation I mixed it in with L'oreal pro matte, just to make sure this would last, I had a long day in the sun and no time for touch-ups, which made me a little bit nervous.. (Oily combo skin)
So at the end of the day when I finally could check out my foundation I was expecting a cakey mess with foundation swimming inside every single oily pore. But NO!
It stayed in place perfectly without any fading or shine, I was so pleased to see how this looked.
This really gives me more confidence and I love how this looks in daylight.

Because the two foundations mix so well together I keep wearing it this way, but I do mix in more of this one than the L'oreal one.

Will definitely purchase this product again and I do recommend it!

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand -Albolene cleanser

on 3/19/2018 10:13:00 AM


I have used this over 4 years and I have to say this is the best cleanser I've used to take off my makeup. I have congested combination, acne prone skin. I was really hesitant to use this product because of the ingredient but after doing some research I realized that it is perfectly safe.

I use about a quarter size amount, rub it between my palms and apply onto my face. This takes off face and eye makeup like a dream and you don't have to put a lot of pressure or scrubbing action. I then use a warm wet face cloth to remove the product and everything just slips off. A little bit goes a long way and it took me four years to finish the large tube I got from amazon.

Definitely give it a try! Recommend for all skin types even acne prone gals like me out there.

Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Aigner - In Leather

on 3/19/2018 6:19:00 AM


Amber vanilla musks and a hint of hazelnuts? Doesn't give me a leather vibe. Rich and warm, a little overpowering in the amber for me. Good silage, fairly long lasting.

Top Notes - black currant, cassia, ylang-ylang
Heart Notes - tuberose, jasmine, pink peony, lily-of-the-valley
Base Notes - amber, vanilla

Really pretty color but doesn't last very long on the nails.

Lipstick -Unlisted Brand -Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Color


This is great lipstick! When I first got this in my Sephora PlayBox, I was perplexed. A matte lipstick in a jumbo pencil in the color Greystone. The color was absolutely hideous and I, for the life of me, couldn't understand why they thought it would be a good idea to create a lip color that resembles the color of mud. It looked horrible on me as it did on all the other people who swatched it....*BUT*, as I was applying it, I couldn't help but admire its smooth & creamy texture. It applied like a dream and the pencil allowed me to define the borders of my lips with such precision. It's like a lipstick and a liner all rolled into one and I liked that. Sooo, I decided I would buy one in a better color and I love it! I got it in the shade, "Burgundy," and it looks so much better on. It stays on forever and while it started to get a bit dry later in the day, it still stayed put, just like it's namesake, and the color still looked great. The biggest downside would be their scanty color selection. They only have 4 or 5 shades and they aren't the prettiest of colors, in my opinion. Rose and Burgundy are their best shades. Also at $24, they are pretty pricey. Personally, I would rather spend that money on Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick or Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. Having said that, I still really love my Burgundy tube, so I will give this 4 lippies and hope NUDESTIX releases a better shade selection.
