Mascara - NYX Professional Makeup - Big & Loud Lash Primer

2 days ago

When I first got this I hated it. It didn't DO anything. I was disappointed because I like most things by NYX. I'd been using the Loreal lash primer, which I love. After trying the NYX one several times and not liking it I was ready to trash it. But I hate wasting things so I figured out a way to use this. I use my Loreal primer and let it mostly dry. Then I swipe a light coat of NYX …Read more

Brows - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Brow Pencil

Going to start off by saying this is NOT the brow pencil for you if you want ultra-sharp and defined brows. It has a relatively large diameter of around 5mm and a rounded tip, and has a waxier consistency than the firmer and more opaque traditional brow pencil formulas out there. It also isn't the most long-wearing.

Although semi-sheer, it's possible to build up coverage, and …

I really hate that I love this. A bad reaction to her bronzer years ago had me running scared from everything LM. I’ve tried everything, EVERYTHING, to avoid buying this in an attempt to cover my sun spots and not end up a big orange oompah loompah in the process. To add insult to injury, my sunspots sit on top of my nice patch of melasma (thus the whole orange peach motif). As a light-medium …Read more

I suffer with occasional contact dermatitis on my eyelids. As much as I adore La Roche Pósay products their products just stung the hell out of my eyes. My friend, who works in dermatology, gave me a sample of this. Absolutely incredible. Literally the only cream to date that I have used that hasn’t stung my eyes when they flare up. Really soothing and feels like your skin is being repaired …Read more

Deodorants - Farmacy - Freshen Up All-Natural Deodorant

I thought Kopari Coconut Deodorant was the bomb but... hello Farmacy! This is slightly smaller at 1.7oz/50g vs Kopari (2oz/57g) and $1 more but well worth it in my opinion. This smells fresh and has kaolin clay in the formula which works very well at absorbing wetness. It is closer to an antiperspirant than any other natural deodorant I’ve tried that doesn’t contain either baking soda or …Read more

While I am more of a “one and done” eyeshadow gal I have been really enjoying this quad/palette. It has only 4 shades (1 matte and 3 with a pearly shimmer finish) which is all I can handle before getting overwhelmed with choices.

The shades included are:
Transition - light/medium brown with warm, yellow undertones (matte)
Browbone - light beige with warm, yellow …

I went through a patch when my face decided to explode in a mass of closed comedones and pimples in new places, despite me not having altered my skincare routine. After reading the serum was meant to help with reduce the appearances of blemishes and congestion, I bought my first bottle and used it in the morning and in the evening.

Several weeks on, my skin did calm down, and during that …

Mascara - Thrive Causemetics - Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara

I love this mascara! I was getting lash extensions but I got tired of having to constantly get them done. Plus I have blonde lashes so I ended up having to use mascara. I got a sample of the Liquid Lash Extensions in my Ipsy bag and decided to try it. It was love at first sight! My lashes looked great, no flaking, smudging or budging! I paired it with my Lancôme Clis Booster XL Primer and BOOM!!! …Read more
