Fragrances -Guerlain -Mon Guerlain

This is the most Amazing Perfume I've ever had. Especially Escada by Escada used to be my favorite perfume all around. To this day Escada still is. But as soon as I tried Mon Guerlain I fell in love. The scents and notes on this perfume is beautiful. At times it can smell like a sweet candy but it doesn't smell cheap. It smells like a very sophisticated soft romantic scent. I've even put it on heavy layered and it still was not overpowering. I especially do not like vanilla scent, however this vanilla scent is very soft and in no way overpowering. The lavender scent in this is amazing. That's what caught my eye on this perfume with the amazing lavender scent. I originally got this as a sample from Sephora and then I spent 250 points getting the tiny bottle sample and then afterwards I went out and bought the most biggest bottles Sephora sold. Trust me if you're into Sandalwood, lavender and vanilla you will love this perfume. I've never owned a perfume from Guerlain and this definitely has to be one of the best buys I've ever done. Fyi this is stupidly expensive. I bought it when Sephora had it's 20% sale because if not it would of been almost $200 taxes and all!

Awesome pigmentation and comfortable wand. The formula is a little sticky but its not unpleasant. I only wouldn't repurchase because this colour isn't something I typically gravitate towards.


Pressed Powders -Unlisted Brand -Starlet - natural finish pressed powder

on 12/17/2017 5:49:00 PM

This product is chalk. There is no way to describe it. It's chalky and powdery and doesn't feel pleasant to the touch, makes your skin cakey and doesn't hold back the oils. Would never recommend.


Eye Primer -Zoeva -Eyeshadow Fix MATTE

I like to stick with a good eyelid primer and don't mess around with it, but occasionally I get tempted to try a new one and this Zoeva primer is one of the primers I was keen on trying out. All Zoeva products have been solid and good so I knew I wasn't getting something horrible, but it has exceeded my expectations.

It's super easy to apply and the dispenser is perfect. It will not allow for too much product unless you buckle down on the tube like you would squeezing a lemon. The tube itself is a matte black and looks sleek, but mind you it also gets dirty if your fingers still have some leftover products from the primer on it. The primer itself gives off a light tint to the eyes but as long as you use shadow, it won't be a problem. I found that my shadows last a good 10 hours, depending on the quality of the shadows. Some last longer than the others, but this primer helps tremendously in keeping all shadows in place regardles of my oily ass lids too.

I do find that the product runs out quickly. Def a whole lot faster than the pot of primer I used from Art Deco before. That one lasted me ages. But considering the price isn't as cheap as the TF or UD ones, I don't mind it that much and have already purchased a new one just in case.


BB Cream -Clinique -Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30

This is the worst foundation I’ve ever tried out of all the cheapest and the most expensive ones. It doesn’t apply on my skin at all and looks patchy and creased all over. I tried it again and again and finally just gave up.

I used to believe that Japanese skincare is the best. A lot of Shiseido products proved this wrong!


Concealers -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills -Pro Series Concealer

Being 48 yo, with combo skin, I don't really ever use a thick pot concealer, most are just way too drying. I normally use NARS RCC for under the eyes, and TheBalm TimeBalm concealer(which is potted, but super creamy), or TooFaced Born this Way for my face/blemishes...I decided to give this Anastasia a try after reading good reviews, feeling that I could return it to Ulta if I hated it. I am quite surprised at how creamy it is for a pot type concealer, and it works really well if I pick some up with a flat concealer brush that has been sprayed with rosewater, it helps it to warm up and spread easily... Because you get so much product, it really is a good value over most other $28-35 concealers I use. Definitely recommend!


Cleansers -Neutrogena -Oil-Free Acne Wash

So this is a cleanser for oily skintypes only, and even then, it can be drying. I have combo/oily skin and if I use this twice a day, my skin will eventually become dry/tight and flaky. But if I use this just at night, it removes every trace of makeup, doesn't over-dry, and keeps my skin totally clear. I also like how this leaves my skin non-oily in the morning (I used to wake up with a shiny face). A little goes a long way, so one bottle lasts a really long time. I also love the way this smells, very clean and refreshing! Overall, it is good at keeping breakouts at bay, with the caveat that it can be drying (just follow with a moisturizer). I have repurchased, and probably will again.

I have older, dehydrated skin. No matter what I use in the morning, skin feels dry and oncomfortable after a few hours. Skin Food is the only cream that keeps my skin hydrated during the day. I use a very small amount which I press onto my face and let it sink in before applying Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer. I use it in combination with The Ordinary and NIOD serums.

Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand -DG body-Dry Skin Cream

My combo/oily skin gets really dehydrated in colder seasons, and because I break out easily, the more basic a formula, the better. This is Dollar General's version of Pond's Dry Skin Cream, and has the exact same ingredients, in the exact same order, so I see no reason to pay more for such a basic moisturizer. The DG Body 3.9 ounce tub is $3.00, and Pond's is $4.35. I apply a thin layer under my makeup during the day, and it absorbs nicely and makes a nice base for makeup. I love that I can apply this heavily around my dry eye area and this does not burn/irritate my eyes like a lot of moisturizers do. Smells like old school baby wipes, but I actually find the scent comforting and pleasant. Does not break me out or make me oilier, so I'm happy with it. A little goes a long way, so the smaller tub actually lasts a long time. Would repurchase!

Moisturizers -Caudalie -Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturizer Spf 20

Oh my gosh, this is an excellent daytime sunscreen. It is gentle, absorbs easily without any grease, and leaves my face with a gorgeous radiant sheen. I am sad to run out of it but would not buy it again because the SPF doesn’t quite cut it.

Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand -Foreo Luna Play

on 12/17/2017 4:04:00 PM

I've used the Foreo Luna play plus which has replaceable batteries making it more sustainable than the Foreo luna play. It has certainly been money well spent, it's a great cleanser that leaves my skin clean and soft without irritating it. All other cleansers I've used have still left my skin a bit flaky, but the play plus has solved that problem which means makeup looks better and stays on longer. I've just bought a Foreo Luna 2 to use at home and will be taking the plus play one with me when I travel.


Powder -Wet 'n' Wild -Mattifying Powder

I’m always on the lookout for mattifying powders, so I decided to give this one a try. It’s only $2.99 so I thought, why not? Well it didn’t help keep oil at bay and it made me look pale. I’ve never had a problem with a mattifying powder making me look like a ghost before but wow this really did. I’m going to keep using it just to set my eyeshadow primer, but not for my t-zone anymore. I don’t recommend for anyone darker than medium tan.

I have very sensitive eyes and most other eye creams irritate my eyes, even the ones that are specifically made for sensitive eyes. This is the only eye cream I've found that doesn't irritate my eyes and I really like it. The skin under my eyes tends to become a bit dry during the winter and this cream has made the skin softer and healthier looking. No big improvements on my wrinkles but I'm ok with that.
