I tried the original eyeshadow primer as a sample and went to Sephora to purchase the full size, Im so glad the SA showed me this one as well! I love this product! I use this by itself during the day time, love how it brightens my face! It gives me that really bright eyed look. I use it as a brow highlighter as well! Very versatile! Love it! Oh, just make sure to use only a very tiny amount, a little goes a long way plus dont rub, just dab on your eye lids.
whats not to love about Cetaphil =) Its the most gentle cleanser out there. Its non drying and non irritating. I have used this for years. I must admit I change cleansers from time to time but the second my face reacts to the new one or I feel my face getting blotches or something I go back to Cetaphil right away. I keep two bottles all the time, one inside the shower and another on my bathroom sink.
There was a point in my life where all of a sudden my skin went haywire!! I dont normally get pimples and then suddenly BAM!! Cystic pimples everywhere!! I went to the dermatologist and she said it was because of cosmetics overload (they had a medical term for it) but technically I reacted from all the facial creams I was using. She said for the moment I should use Purpose to clean my face and moisturize. She was right! This cleanser is so gentle and non drying. Very good for sensitive skin. I still use this even after my pimples have gone. Its such a good cleanser and its reasonably priced too!!
This shampoo is the reason I switched shampoo and conditioner brands for life! This shampoo along with the matching conditioner is my first kerastase product and every since I tried it I was hooked! Every time I use it I feel like I just stepped out of a salon. It really makes my hair very soft and smooth. I dont use it everyday though. I interchange this with the other kerastase shampoo, the green bottle one I think its called de force.
There are a few things that I dont mind investing on and one of those are hair products namely shampoo and conditioner. Since I color my hair and use styling tools a lot I really try to take care of it as much as I can. My friend convinced me to try the kerastase line. Believe me I was very hesitant seeing the hefty price tag but I gave it a try. This shampoo and the matching conditioner is literally my everyday shampoo and I must say I LOVE THE RESULTS! My hair is very soft, shiny and very smooth! My hair is shoulder length which I tend to grow out for 3 to 5 months before i get my next cut and it keeps my hair healthy all through out.
I dont really buy concealers since Im not very good at putting concealers on me. It always looks so obvious when I put it so years ago Ive stopped trying and just swipe powder under my eyes or dab more where there are blemishes. I got this as a gift so I decided to use it and fell inlove with it ever since! First, the color was a perfect match for me. My friend gave me the Medium color. I love how the consistency is quite tacky and heavy so I just dot a few under my eyes and blend away. It looks very natural and doesnt leave that "make up" look at all.
I bought this in a whim since I was inside the Benefit store browsing their stuff. Im really anal about my eye brows so I decided to try this product. Im not exactly sure how to use it... the sales lady said its meant for under the brow area so thats what ive been doing, since its soo pigmented I really try to blend it in, if not it looks really chalky! by the time I do blend, I feel the product has disappeared. Maybe its just me, Im probably doing it wrong.
I love liquid liners and to me the Artliner is the best! I use Noir the most. It really is my go to liner. It goes on so smoothly and stays on the whole day! Ive tried most brands but I keep on going back to Artliner. I like how the wand itself isnt too thin so its easy to use and control when creating a perfect line.
This product was just OK. Something I would put during the day time but nothing special... too light I guess. Definitely too expensive. For $24 this is NOT a deal. what I cant stand about Nars is the smell.. it has a chemical smell to it...eekk... I like how its not too sticky though, thats the only thing I liked about it.
This blush is so versatile! It will match practically everyone's skin tone. I have olive skin tone and this color is perfect on me. Just a hint of color on my cheeks. Put more for a darker hue. I wear this everyday for daytime and night.

I have full brows so I never really used brow pencils and powders before. I had my eyebrows done by this lady and she placed this product right after she waxed and shaped my eyebrows and I LOVED IT! She taught me how to use it and bought my own ever since. I use the Brunette color. I am very happy with it! It looks very natural, doesnt make me look too intense.

I have been on a look out for an eyeliner that I can use in the waterline that would not smear on me since I hate the raccoon look. The lady at Sephora suggested I try this product. I am so happy I bought it! It really is waterproof! No raccoon eyes! I wear contacts and I dont seem to have a problem wearing this on my waterline. I try to get it as close to my lashes from the inside though. Its such an intense black and it really makes my eyes pop. This is definitely a staple in my make up bag. I will definitely buy again.
I hate mascaras that smear on the bottom of my eye area. I dont like the raccoon effect since it makes me look tired. For some reason waterproof formulas still do that raccoon effect and I have bought all brands from drugstore to the really expensive ones, I finally found the mascara for me! I LOVE THIS FORMULA! It only comes off with warm water, and it coats your lashes with this black film. Its perfect! It never smears on me ever. I have tried Blinc, I still like Kevyn better just because the brush of Kevyn is better for me since I have very tiny lashes and it catches them all! I use this everyday and its really my go to mascara!
