Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand -Lucas' Papaw Ointment

foto

This has become the only lip balm my lips will tolerate. I recently tried the Nivea Hydro Care and even the Nuxe Reve De Miel, and both of them had my lips peeling within a couple of days. I switch back to this and they're soft and smooth again in no time. It's witchcraft in a tube. And it now owns my ass so I will obviously be repurchasing for the rest of my life.


Hair -Unlisted Brand -Hairstory - New Wash

on 11/18/2017 1:56:00 AM

I really tried to like this product. First off, because my hair is oily, I need to use up to 8 pumps with each shampoo. New Wash is not cheap either! While it left my hair soft, my hair would look greasy after only one day. Typically, I can go 2 days without washing. I thought my hair would adjust and bought another bottle of New Wash. Finally, I had to stop using it because my scalp constantly itched. I went back to my regular shampoo and what a relief! My scalp felt so much better. It’s as if all the New Wash reside that had been plugging up my hair follicles finally got washed away. I have half a bottle of New Wash left which I am trying to finish up by using on my hair and not on the scalp.


Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Nanette Lepore 2017

on 11/18/2017 1:42:00 AM

There has always been a special place in my heart for Nanette Lepore perfumes. They are always so much fun, carefree and whimsical. Her latest fragrance, i dont know what to call it other than Nanette Lepore 2017, is no exception. It has been several years since she has released a fragrance and this new one is simply beautiful. The bottle is big. A nice big chunky piece of glass that fits nicely in the palm of your hand. It has fun little designs on it like paiseleys, leaves and branches. The color of the bottle is a pumpkiney orange that fits the scent nicely. The scent is very sweet but not in a gourmand type of way. It has a lovely mote of sugar that makes me think of cute little sugar cubes laying next to a cup of bone china teacup. If the teacup fairy exists she would smell like this scent. Pear is another note in this perfume and its always been one of my favorite notes. Floral notes include lily of the valley and 🌹 Touch of cedar and musk but the star in this lovely perfume is sugar and pear. I stumbled upon this perfume by accident and have not seen any advertisement for it and i have not seen it in any stores. It would be a shame if this perfume fails to catch on and fall into oblivion but if you dont want to smell like everyone else get Nanette Lepore 2017.

Masks -Unlisted Brand -Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask

I enjoyed using this mask but I feel it was too weak for seasoned acid and retinol users. I still like Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel better. I left this on for several hours with some misting in between, its lovely in texture, smells natural and no doubt the ingredients are very high quality. Love the packaging, its just too weak, maybe for very sensitive skin or those starting out in acid based ingredients. I finished this quite quickly but will not repurchase, i recommend you sample first and not buy blind.


Crème -Unlisted Brand -Dermacol Make-up Cover

I did not expect to like this as much as I do. For starters, shade #208 is an exact match for my skin, exact. This shade is described as "cold porcelain". Not how I think of my skin tone but it works. At any rate I almost always have to buy the lightest shade of any foundation and I've never had an exact match before. Second, you really don't have to use much at all. Less than a pea covers my whole face with a beauty blender. Less if you're using a brush or your fingers. I recently wore this for a 16 hour shift at my hospital. I felt exausted but my skin looked really good. I have, what I would consider, normal skin right now, it was very oily for much of my life but has settled down considerably since hitting my (cough) mature years. I probably could not have worn this 10 years ago because Dermacol is on the more moisturizing side of the foundation spectrum. I, obviously, got the authentic version, but there are fakes out there which wouldn't be nearly as good. On the whole it's a fantastic bargain. I ordered from Amazon but you can get it elsewhere too.

Hair -Unlisted Brand -So Gorgeous Refreshing Hair Perfume

on 11/17/2017 4:34:00 PM

I bought this because I was on a spending spree in Sally's Beauty Supply and because I've never purchased a "hair perfume" before. I thought it was very innovative. I smelled it and it smelled really good so I bought it. One spray works as more than one spray can be overpowering. This could also be used to spray on clothes, bed sheets, in your car, ect. It's very multipurpose. Would I buy it again? Probably not because I don't really find it NECESSARY to have but it is nice to have just to have!

I got a sample of this as a sephora point perk. Holy crap. This is AMAZING. It's really worth the price tag. It leaves my skin feeling smooth. I leave this on until it fully dries. It's just a gel mask. I had no irritation from this. I use first aid beauty's aha resurfacing liquid nightly but sometimes my skin needs some extra exfoliation. This is perfect for that. It's stronger and removed more dead skin. I like to do an at home facial. I'll use this then use a hydrating mask or a sheet mask. I think this mask would be good for all skin types, but dry skin would really love this. Good for the winter too!


Mascara -Unlisted Brand - YSL Mascara in Shocking

I am always on the hunt for the best mascara. I have oily lids and mascara always seems to end up around my eyes by the end of the day. sadly this one is no different. it is clumpy too.


Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Preferred Fragrance Amazing (Incredible by Victoria's Secret)

on 11/17/2017 10:58:00 AM

While Incredible has prominent sparkling pear notes, Amazing has a sweet, powdery scent. Though it lacks the complexity of the original, it is a good alternative, since Incredible is a rare find these days. It has a reasonable wear time, with light sillage. I have layered this with other floral scents to round out the notes.


Brows -Unlisted Brand -Ecobrow Defining Wax - Penelope

Penelope is the shade I currently use to define my eyebrows. The formula of the wax is instense. You want to start with as minimum amount and build. Once it sets, it stays. I love it because not only does it enhance my eyebrows, it also keeps them in place without the stiffness or gooeyness of other brow products in the market. I personally dislike most gels because my eyebrow hair feels to crusty and the spoolies attached are not much help.

While not a huge deal breaker and reason why I took off one lippie for packaging is that you have to purchase the brush separately. The pomade/wax is as expensive as the brush. As mentioned, this was not a big dealbreaker but it did annoy me.

All in all I still use this product and I will sometimes use it as an alternative to a liquid eyeliner for a softer line.

This is great!!!!! Seriously I am so happy to not have to deal with going to the Dermatologist to get a RX anymore!

I am 36 and yes I do get breakouts and I can say that using this as well as the cleanser has been such a blessing for me!


Don’t forget to use SPF...

Non-Irritating, Effective, Available Pretty Much Everywhere!


Lip Gloss -Unlisted Brand -NYC Big Bold in Voluminous Peach

This is a nice gloss. It has a slight tingle to it, not bothersome at all. I find that this shade in particular shows up more clear on my lips. Doesn't matter, still looks really nice. I paid under $3 for it at Walmart after previously trying their Liquid Lipshine and loving it. I'm impressed with this one too.

Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand -Touch In Sol - No Poreblem Primer

This is a good basic bargain primer. It doesn't work miracles, but it does a good job of creating a canvas for foundation and keeping makeup from settling into pores.


Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand -Ego QV Face Moisturising Cream SPF30

I'm so happy they reformulated this! I was a big fan of this product before they changed the ingredients (sometime around 2014/15 maybe?) after which it stung my skin initially upon every application. Recently I went on the hunt for a new HG sunscreen, hoping to find something that would work well with my skin for everyday use. Then a couple of weeks ago at the pharmacy I noticed it said 'new formula' on the packaging, so I picked one up. So glad - no more stinging, feels light, hydrates my skin, and doesn't cause break outs. It's back to being awesome!
