Mascara -Chanel -Le Volume De Chanel

on 7/16/2018 9:56:00 PM

I'm surprised that so many people like this mascara.

Pros:
- extra thick very black voluminous lashes.

Cons:
- the formula is very wet, that results in spikey lashes with mascara clumps;
- the brush is not designed to separate the lashes, it puts them all together and makes it impossible to reduce the amount of clumps;
- it smudges;
- it's a nightmare to take it off, even with a waterproof mascara remover.

Not for me.


Foundations -Dior -Backstage Face & Body Foundation

I have currently been on a foundation testing kick, trying everything under the sun. This foundation was one of them.

I'm a NC20 with very yellow undertones. I tried this with a sample of 1N. The color looks very pink in the bottle but changed a bit on my skin and looked fine, tone-wise.

Everyone mentioned a scent, and I'm highly sensitive to scents, but barely noticed one with this, even upon application.

I applied it with a RT brush, since brush application was recommended. I think it applied very well, thin and lightweight, I was surprised, since my oily but dry skin prefers a damp sponge.

However, from there, it went a bit mediocre. I found that areas got very dry, and when I went to fix the dryness, the foundation woukd just flake off with the skin. I applied this over Smashbox primerizer, a more moisturizing primer, yet it still flaked in spots. A little did go a long way.

By noon, my face was getting too shiny for my liking so I washed it off, and found myself with a small breakout forming on my chin already. I find this bipolar foundation; it goes on smooth but dries fast on the skin. But then after an hour or two, becomes oily (on my skin).

Since I had been testing different foundations, I can say that this foundation looked identical on my skin as the CoverGirl Ready Set, Gorgeous foundation I wore just the day before. Starts out matte but becomes more natural finish on the skin. Save yourself some $$$ and try that first!!

Anyone wants my Dior sample to try, let me know, since I wont use it again! Glad to give it away.


Foundations -Tarte -Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

I don't understand why people love this foundation so much. It left my skin looking flat. It was demolished after a few hours by my oily skin. It is like a tinted clay mask. Overhyped!!! I returned it to ULTA. I NEVER return things to Ulta.


Masks -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Overnight Gel Mask

on 7/16/2018 9:01:00 PM

This mask applies like cool goo on your face. The mask was so uncomfortable to sleep in. It stays gummy for a while. I had to use an exfoliating scrub in the morning to get rid of this. My skin was oily and pink. I don’t use Neutrogena and I’m not interested in testing any other one of their products after this experience.


Foundations -Unlisted Brand -CYO-Long Lasting Lifeproof Foundation

This review is based off only wearing twice so it is somewhat of a first impression and will update if need be, but honestly I can tell that this is a fantastic foundation. My skintype is sensitive,acne prone, prone to dehydration, lots of redness and scarring from previous acne breakouts. I decided to buy this foundation after seeing a few good reviews on YouTube- and I figured for $7 if it ended up being crap I wouldn't have lost too much. Boy am I glad I gave this foundation a try! It definitely has a medium- high medium coverage. I typically don't go for full coverage but I am sure this can be built up to being very close to full coverage. The shade I have is "103" which suits my lighter skin tone (I have warm-beige undertones). In the winter I may need to buy 102. Anyway, this foundation is also weightless and extremely comfortable to wear. The finish is satin/ very skin like. I think if you have very oily skin or prefer a matte finish this is NOT going to be your cup of tea. The wear time of this foundation for me was about 8 hours and I did touch up once. It did start to look more worn as the day went on, but I feel that it broke down very grasciously. I never felt that I looked like a greaseball. I haven't experienced any breakouts yet and from looking at the ingredients list on cosDNA.com I don't think I should have any problems with that. Overall this is my new go to foundation! So impressed, beats my $45 Juice Beauty foundation.

Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics -The POREfessional Pro Balm

on 7/16/2018 8:55:00 PM

POREfessional PRO balm by Benefit fills in your pores with a silky powder. This balm is colorless and does not irritate my skin (and like 80% of things do). I use it to matify my skin before heading out to the gym. I had to take off a lippy because it is incompatible with my sunscreen. When I apply both, my sunscrren rolls off like a mask. Skin cancer prevention beats a pore minimizer. It is pricey so I use it wisely.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

I tried NC15, NC20 and NC25 for MAC Studio Fix Fluid. The two latter ones are so orange and turn more so over time. The counter girl had brown skin but her foundation looked like umpa Loompa coverup. I gave it a second lippy because it matifies the skin. My skin looked pretty corpse like in this foundation. It makes
my face itchy. Thumbs down!!


Lotions/ Creams -Kiehl's -Creme de Corps

on 7/16/2018 8:44:00 PM

I got this because it was advertised as fragrance-free. Unfortunately, it has a very odd mild citrus scent that I strongly dislike. It also takes forever to absorb, my skin feels tacky even hours later.
It does moisturize and give my skin a subtle glow, but it's too unpleasant to use.


Eyes -Unlisted Brand -One Two Cosmetics Magnetic eyelashes

on 7/16/2018 8:28:00 PM

Pleaseeee do not waste money on these!!! As other raters have said, it takes forever for the lashes to arrive in the first place. Like a month. Once they do, you will go through the long process of trying to figure out how to use them. And once you do figure out how to use them, you can expect to throw them out after about three wears. Literally the $3 glue-on lashes from the drugstore last me ten times longer. After a few wears, the lash fibers start to fall out and become misshapen and they are impossible to remove without ruining them and your own natural lashes. Would be ok if these lashes were $5 a set because they’re literally disposable but $60-$100?? No way.

Blush -MAC -Dollymix

On bad days I have rosacea flare-ups. Dollymix on my cheeks perfectly matches the color of my rosacea, not a look look that I like.
For the reference my skin is NC25.


Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

This cream is a bit better than the serum because it’s not sticky, but I wouldn’t buy it again. Nothing special.


Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5

Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5 is supposed to hydrate. It is sticky on the skin. I don’t really see or feel a difference after a couple of bottles. I won’t buy this again. The only plus is that it’s cheap.


Fragrances -Annick Goutal -Mon Parfum Cheri, Par Camille

on 7/16/2018 8:01:00 PM

Let me first say that I love many of Goutal's scents and some classics like "Heure Exquise" are long time favourites of mine and are favourites in my collection.
This was the first and only Goutal scent that almost made me gag. I think it smells horrendous. Like mouldy, wet earth combined with overripe, rotting fruits. This scent combination is superstrong with a very strong endurance and sillage. I couldn't wait to wash this off and that rarely happens.
I had two different samples of this so I know this wasn't gone off when I tested it.
So, this might be for you if you like mouldy scents and if you like alcoholic fermented plums and such.
Absolutely not for me

Skincare - Face -Paula's Choice -RESIST Skin Firming Line Minimizer

on 7/16/2018 7:38:00 PM

Above all else, the packaging stinks. I'm sure it is stable but it is a push button from the bottom... which means when you put the cap back on it, it's very easy to push down on the bottom and wasted product ensues. I have used this to completion and notice no difference. 2 stars as I do have faith in Paula's Choice products BUT this one just didn't happen to work for me and the packaging is ridiculous.
