Mascara -wet n wild -Lash Renegade

I ran out of eye makeup remover while I was out of town. This product (in brazen black) came with a sample bottle of eye makeup remover and I was also running low on mascara, so I decided to buy it. I think it was $6.99. There are a few mascaras I prefer in general, but I'm not super particular. Before purchasing this, I felt mascaras weren't too different from one another. This mascara taught me I was wrong. The brush is silicone, which I usually like. It has a unique ball shape on the tip that I assume is for corner and lower eyelashes, but trying it was a mistake. It was pretty liquidy and kind of thick at the same time. It made my lashes stick together and spider, and it was so wet that corner lashes just turned into sludge when I blinked. Both times I tried it, I had to use another mascara and tweezers afterward to separate my lashes that were all stuck together. I also had to clean up the parts that smudged just from blinking.

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

Holy grail mask! The amazing yummy scent of pumpkin pie is so delicious I want to eat it. My skin is so soft and smooth and looks radiant after just leaving this on for 5-7 minutes. I can see the results right away after I've rinsed it off. It helps with the congestion I get in my pores and in lightening old acne marks. I use it once a week and it is worth every penny. I follow up with using a hydrating moisturizer.

Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane -20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

I love how moisturizing this is, really did wonders on my cuticles, but could not stand the strong baby powder scent. Would not repurchase due to the headache inducing scent.


Mascara -Milk Makeup -KUSH High Volume Mascara

I had high hopes for this mascara but all I do is struggle with it in the morning. The tube is metal, heavy, and large, similar to the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill metal tube. Like the EtK mascara, this is also made in Italy. The wand is too large for my small eyes and short lashes, especially if my eyes are swollen in the morning. When I use this mascara on the weekends it's easier to apply because I'm not putting it on in a rush half awake at 5AM.

I noticed that after a few weeks of use, the formula became progressively stringier and difficult to control, almost like the polymers were drying up or something. I didn't have any issues with smudging, but it did clump so I used a separate mascara wand to comb through my lashes between coats.

This is a good lengthening mascara similar to GA EtK, but not a great thickening or dramatic formula. This can be remedied by layering a separate waterproof volumizing formula on top, but overall I found this mascara to be mediocre and wouldn't repurchase or recommend.

Moisturizers -Rodan and Fields -SOOTHE treat- facial cream

on 6/25/2018 12:34:00 AM

I can't explain how much this line means to me, after a year of looking like a scaly monster I tried this..I had seen 5 Dr's, they'd tried everything and actually told me to prepare that it could be skin cancer. I caved and tried this, 4 days later it was improving. Now after a year my skin can tolerate makeup and other lotions again. It's a more expensive one but it's absolutely worth every penny


Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Jouviance - Antioxidant Emulsion

I'm actually really surprised and impressed with this product. I've been a faithful Rodan and fields user for over a year, but I figured I'd try this out because it was on sale.. And actually, it has improved the fine lines more than anything else has. It does feel oily slightly and it doesn't keep my skin flawless from occasional pimples like Redifine does. But it's cheaper


Powder -Max Factor -Facefinity Compact

I am 48 and have dry skin. There are many days I just wear sunscreen and mascara, but then have a last minute meeting or need to put on makeup on the go to look more polished. This is ideal! It makes my skin smooth and clear quickly, and evens out my skin without emphasizing fine lines. I don't wear it for evenings, but is the perfect on the go makeup!

Cleansers -Shea Moisture -Peace Rose Oil Complex Sensitive Skin Facial Cleansing Oil

This is probably the fourth of fifth oil cleanser I have used. I have dry skin that is prone to eczema so keeping my skin moisturized is an absolute must. I like that this is all natural, most oil cleansers are but I've run across one that was mineral oil based. Fragrance, i would prefer fragrance free but oil cleansers just tend to have it more often than not. This ones was pleasant and mild, obviously this smells like roses. I have pretty sensitive skin being eczema prone, but I did not find this to irritate of sting my face. A teensy bit got in my eye as I was washing my face and yes it did burn. I continued tow ash around the eye area, and was careful to keep my eyes tightly closed. Mascara can be stubborn to removed, and with this I did not have to rub to remove all my mascara. I noticed this product is very thick compared to other oil cleansers and the consistency seems to be affected my temperature. A single pump was more than enough for my entire face, so there should be a lot of uses per bottle.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Now listen, I have to go camping out with friends and family. I just want to look good then BLOW, big ole' fat zit underneath my lip. I was so desparate, but then I remember a long ime ago I bought "Zapzyt", now put an icecube on your spot, then steam your face. Put this god on your infected area, a bout' 2 hours and my zit is a bit smaller, doesn't hurt anymore, AND THE REDNESS IS GONE! I MEAN ALL OF IT! Get this! It is about 5 dollars. Your 5 dollars will not be wasted. And compared to the other 50 dollar products, this is to die for :). GET IT GURL! *.*


Eye Shadow -Morphe -25A Copper Spice Palette

I initially had my eye on a couple of pricier high end palettes, but this one caught my eye. With the popularity of YouTube and Instagram makeup tutorials, there's been a surge of new brands popping up. I do typically stick to high end eye shadow palettes as the less expensive ones tend to disappoint me with chalky texture, and poor pigmentation. I also have to learn to keep my budget under control and $50 palettes don't help. This has 25 shades, with a mix of mattes and shimmers for under $20.

Pigmentation varies from shade to shade, some are great and some really need to be packed on. Texture/smoothness again mixed, though most seem to be pretty smooth with a few that are chalky/dry feeling. Product wear really depends on using not just a primer, but a good primer. I have not tried these without primer, they color really lasts and does not crease with UDPP anti-aging primer. I also tried this with the NYX white eye shadow primer and the wear was only mediocre. These do blend well as the package claims. I like that there colors tend to go well together, making it easy to create a variety of looks.

For the price this is really good value, it's not super high quality, but it's better than most drugstore brands.
