I love this little tin of lippie goodness. I have it in the Vanilla and Macadamia kiss and it is so tasty and hydrating. I usually will put a thick amount on at bedtime and wake up with the softest lips. The tin isn't the most hygienic granted so I use this at night after i wash my hands. I wish they had this in a tube but I love the formula so hand washing it is because it's very soft lip butter. I really love it though and will buy more because they do make my lips feel so good. The moisture you get is fantastic in my book. This stuff helps my lips every time I get dehydrated and I feel it hydrates them from the inside which is excellent. It's a great product and the tin is very cute. I really like the whole thing. Recommended!
Powder -Tarte - Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder
MsPsylocke 5/11/2013 9:04:00 PM
I got 2 new ones of these one for me and one for my Nana for Mothers day. As she really needs something for shine I think this will work as I love it. I got the swim team edition so the packaging is just beautiful! I have been using this powder I think for a year now it's been a while and I really do like it a lot and it's my go to. It is because it really does control oil without giving you that super matte look. I don't like to look fake and with this powder I don't. I also like how you can use it to spot treat certain areas. A spot here add a little extra powder and your good. I rarely need touchups with this powder which is what I like and for the money what I get. It lasts ages I still have deluxe samples with plenty of product I use for travel. Also it makes my skin feel super soft and it hasn't broken me out. The clay does help us oily girls and with the hot summer coming I'm glad i have this! I would really try a sample because that's what converted me. Plus the one hole is all you need as you need less of this powder than others on your skin which makes it last forever. Don't have problems with photo's either my skin just looks really smooth.NW15-20 for reference. Definitely Recommended.
One of the best real chocolate products I have used. I even have a chocolate soap which I'm almost out of:( Hunt for that next but 1st on to the scrub. It's really good it warms on contact not hot just warm it's really relaxing and the smell with the real pieces of chocolate really make my shower a more enjoyable time than it already is. I luv my showers and with this scrub my skin feels so soft and smells so good. I first wash with my salux and because it's a sugar scrub I can use it after I shave because the salux pretty much eliminates bumps. So the scrub can really get in and moisturize my skin. The container is pretty big so it's misleading in that sense cause you don't get that huge jar filled up. You do get enough but I save mine more for pampering and use my treehut daily because I don't want to run out. My Target is hit and miss with this product so I'll probably stick to Ulta on this one. I really recommend it though because your skin feels so smooth, you smell great, and it's the best part of the shower because it's just so yummy!
I got this in a deluxe sample so i have used it a lot and so far it's just not working for me like UDPP. I like the glow on my eye's in general with some eyeliner and it's very pretty. In terms of keeping my shadow on I was so upset because one eye completely creased and came off. Like I had a strip of my skin then my eye makeup not a good look at all:( Now sometimes from allergies one eye tears and I can usually handle my eye makeup or it will at least stay on with the UDPP. With the Too Face I got about 3 good hours so that was a bummer. I will use this on it's own as a shadow but as a primer even Tartes was a lot longer lasting then this one. I know their glitter primer is awesome and that I will get but this I will not purchase in full size. I will use up the tube on days when my allergies aren't so bad.It's really pretty so it's a shame it didn't work for me.:(
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Tanda Skincare System
MsPsylocke 5/9/2013 10:46:00 PM
I have the Tanda Zap Blue Light and I actually find it does work on pimples if you catch them before they start. Or I find if I pop one and zap it it'll flatten faster and healing time is cut down a lot. What would take a week now only takes 4 days for example. I really like that because I can deal with the pimples I get a lot easier. I use Retin A so I only get occasional ones now but they can be the ones that you have to pop. With this I do not which, saves my skin from scarring. It really has stopped those painful underground spots more times than not or made them less than they would be. I don't think this would be good for treating acne it seems more a spot treater for mild acne. That is what my skin is and what I use it for. Would I buy it again I don't know yet it has worked for me and mine was a gift, but I am partial. If it broke I just might but you do go through a lot of batteries so I would recommend rechargeable because it's a lot more eco friendly. I'm still on the fence so far I put no but I will update in time because this thing is pretty nifty I must say.
Beautiful cleanser in my opinion. It really cleans my skin without over stripping it. It makes me skin feel really good. You only need the tiniest amount to cleanse and it smells very nice and light. I notice my pores are clean and minimized. My acne scars are going away or plumping. Who knows but it's working for me. My skin is very even toned as well which I love as a super pale chick. Seriously I touch my skin it turns red well this is totally helping my blotchy issues. It's great for me and I use Retin a and it doesn't dry me out when I use them together. Excellent summer cleanser I luv it and a reasonable price considering it will last ages. I have oily/combo skin in the summer so this stuff is working great my skin feels balanced not to dry or oily. Highly recommended will repurchase!
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - The "Wet" Brush
MsPsylocke 5/9/2013 10:51:00 AM
Oh wow thank you MUA for me coming across this review! My hair for starters is almost down to my behind,long,thick, and knotty! Well I ordered the purple wet brush from evilbay for 8$ total with shipping not bad. So yesterday I was taking my power shower and did a hair mask. I threw my hair up with the mask to do it's thing while I showered. I always put my hair up with conditioner especially heavy ones b/c in the summer I could breakout on my back and i want to avoid that. Now to this brush...omgosh I took my hair down and got to work...well what work? It was like a gentle person brushing my thick unruly hair. It was so gentle and felt soo good. I barely shed at all and my hair looks so nice with just my hair oils gotta keep it soft and with this brush no more pain it's amazing how it worked on my hair. It looks pretty, natural, and I really like my hair! I am getting one for my nephew too he has ethnic hair that tangles so bad this will be the best for a mom with a kid with hard hair to brush. Plus us adults who's hair is impossible to brush the way we like. Now we can which, makes me so happy:) Highly recommended!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Barely Branded Color Tattoo
MsPsylocke 5/5/2013 10:04:00 PM
I have this colour and Precious Pearl so far even though I have pink undertones I love this colour. i just applied it to my lid no primer to see how long it would last plus I'm a crease queen. Well I just took it off 10 minutes ago and had no creasing what so ever! This really wakes up my eyes and if I curl my lashes and apply some Tarte mascara and some NARS blusher with the Tarte BB primer omgosh I look natural and healthy. I can't wait to try this as a primer i think it will go will with my Naked 2 palette. So far I love it. It lasts doesn't crease, and makes my eyes look really big. I also use some Tarte eye brightener but no liner and some Amazon powder and I look totally natural and healthy. I didn't need a lot of the Color Tattoo to get the desired look. So all in all this is a great product and I will be purchasing more without a doubt.It's a good primer or eye brightener and for the price I'm happy.
I really like this foundation and I'm a BB Cream girl. I just fell in love with Tart's BB cream then I had to try this. I put this on with my RT foundation brush and I only needed the smallest amount to cover my face very well. I think it's medium to light coverage because I don't have many spots and it covered everything with one layer. I didn't have to build it up to get the coverage I needed. It can be built though for skin that needs more coverage. I had it on at least 10 hours and my skin looked perfect. No flaws,blotchyness,spots,Etc. My skin looked flawless. It really impressed me that something that stays for 12 hours feels like nothing on your skin. It's very light on the skin and this is the only foundation that I will wear. Right now this is my HG! No cakyness or it not mixing with my moisturizer and primer. I got this in a set but it's a huge amount but I will buy the regular size before I run out as this is the only foundation I will use atm.It also doesn't make me break out and it controls oil very well so it's the perfect Summer foundation. Give it a try ladies it's really good and I hope you have the same awesome results.Also I have super oily skin and it doesn't make it worse it makes it better.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - 24/7 glide on shadow pencil in Morphine
MsPsylocke 4/30/2013 3:33:00 PM
I'm surprised at all the bad reviews maybe I got a good pencil but this works great for me. I am an UD lover so I'm partial but if it was terrible I would say so and I think it's not. First I love the smooth consistency it glides on my eyes so easy. It stays with or without PP. I did my test to see if I wanted to keep it without primer and it's lasting through my allergy tears. Not from the makeup my eyes water every year and UD is one of the few brands that stay on my finicky eyes. The colour is amazing a lilac with a blue shift is so pretty. It really makes my green eyes stand out. I used just this and some mascara and it looks awesome. It makes my life easy because I can do a quick look and it looks like I did so much more. This colour I think is great for the warm weather too. So pretty with all the flowers blooming here. I like this one much better than my NARS because this one doesn't crease and my NARS creases so fast if I don't get powder on. So for durability and long lasting colour UD get's my award that's for sure. I find this pencil to be very smooth and not cakey at all just a nice clean application. I always use their liners so I will be buying more of these. The colours are great,payoff is excellent, and they last.
I really like this oil a lot. I keep getting sample bottles and roll on's because of the kits I have been getting plus Sephora points:) I am though going to break down and buy the full size as I do notice a difference. I have been using this over 4 months and my skin looks so much better. I have acne scarring well now it's plumped you can't see it. The little bit of laugh lines I had..gone I kid you not. My genetic forehead lines are really diminished and my pores are smaller and skin smoother and more even toned. Also amazingly no breakouts with this oil. I have used it every night and I have better skin now then when I started using it. It is expensive but for what it's doing for my skin I will pay the price. I have a good size of it because you don't need a lot. Only a few drops and my whole face is hydrated. I mostly use it at night or when I have dry patches from retin a. It even diminished a broken capillary I had. I am very satisfied and will repurchase again and again. It works for my skin. Give it a try ladies I hope it works as well for you too!
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips lip balm in Grape Vine
MsPsylocke 4/30/2013 2:31:00 PM
This is my second my 1st being the Peach or purple tube which I just loved so I had to get another. I got this one for a little over 4 bucks I don't have a problem with the price because they work so well. I was going through some major dehydration and my lips were chapped from the inside. This stuff brought back the moisture to my lips from the inside. I applied often and before I went to bed. My lips have never felt or looked better. I love these lippies and now want the clear for my bedtime usage. I'm very happy with these it smells like concord grape to me and gives my super pale skin some life because it looks like a nice berry tint. Worth it to me because they work! Def recommended!
I got this powder a couple months ago and I really like it a lot. I have this and Studio Fix I'm an NW20 in the SF but in the Careblend the light is perfect almost translucent. I like how soft it makes my skin feel and it does keep my oil at bay. I rarely have to touch up when I use this powder. Lately I have been putting it over my Tarte BB which is awesome as well and my skin looks so well healthy and normal. I have a lot of redness and this is perfect to tone it down. So far this has been good to my skin no breakouts what so ever. With the SF I haven't broken out either. So I'm happy because I really like these pressed powders. The Careblend really makes my skin feel super soft. My skin looks matte but not over matte if you know what I mean. I like that about this powder. I have been using this with my 187 with great results and the puff when I'm out. The puff is well made as well. So all in all I will continue to use this as long as they make it because it really is nice to my skin. Not saying everyone will love it some do breakout as you read reviews but in my case I did not.I do use Retin A to stay that way so take it as you wish. This is also a good powder for people using a retinoid because it doesn't irritate the skin in my case at least. Great product I will repurchase when needed and recommend it.
This is the first American BB Cream that I have tried and I love it. I usually always stick with the Korean BB's but this actually had some benefits so I thought i would give this a try. It goes on so smooth and my skin looked super even I only needed to conceal some small imperfections. What I love about Tarte is that their colours seem to match my skin so perfectly. There light truly fits my super pale NW15 skin tone. I love how natural my skin looks like I'm not wearing any makeup at all. I like how you can use it as a primer or on it's own. So far I have only used it on it's own but I'm going to try fuller coverage with the Amazonian Clay Foundation. So far though as a Spring/Summer BB this is perfect because it has a spf of 30 and being on retin a I need all the protection I can get. I use Tarte's concealer as well. I also use the Maracuja Oil and my skin has never looked better. My fine smile lines are almost gone and my genetic forehead lines are diminishing. I really like this BB cream and am happy with my first American version. I love the sheer coverage and how easy it blends and how good it feels on my skin. Especially for a product with SPF. Totally happy and highly recommended!
Just tried this brand of colour and omgosh i love it! I'm a natural blonde but as I'm getting older my hair is getting to be a more dark blonde. So I wanted to go to my summer blonde which is medium to light ash blonde. So I got this at Sally's and it came with a free argan oil spray which I love as well. i mixed Light Ash Blond with some Very light Ash Blonde to cut the brassyness. I have hair to my waist so I love how there is 2 applications per tube. Finally enough dye for my hair:) So I mixed 2 of the Light Ash with 1 of the very light ash used 30 volume developer and went to town. This colour is so rich and creamy and it actually moisturizes your hair. I put it in and left it for 25-30 min because I was afraid of being brassy. Well I washed, conditioned with One n Only as well. Then I used a purple toner conditioner just in case. Well wow the colour turned out beautiful! The blonde is just how i wanted it light but not patchy or brassy just a beautiful light ash blonde. I couldn't be happier also my hair felt and smelled really good. That never happens when I use dye I always smell it no matter what i do. Not with this it truly saturates the hair with beautiful colour. I can't speak for grey coverage since I'm not there yet, but I am a convert to this brand and will not use any other. It really is that good in my opinion. There is a great range of colours, they are reasonably priced, and they work! I highly recommend this product and will mos def repurchase.
