Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand -Almay facial soap 1 for dry skin

on 12/12/2017 2:21:00 PM

This bar soap for dry skin has been discontinued many years ago by almay but I had bought this from a local bargain bin store for a dollar 💵 only years ago & just last year during January I started using it up & it was pretty good! It lasted me a solid 4 months! & wasn't too drying not as dry as their versions for oily & normal skin the dry skin bar is super fatted with petroleum & was much more gentler on my face which is fairly oily!

Skincare - Face -Garden of Wisdom -Cucumber Hydrosol

on 12/12/2017 2:13:00 PM

This wonderful liquid is best kept in the 'fridge. It has the texture of water, and dries exactly as water--no residue when dry. It has a lovely scent of fresh cucumbers. I'm allergic to all perfumes and am very sensitive to scents.. this is REAL cucumber--NO allergy for me! YEA!!! The dry, icy-cold winter & snow have hit, which means my allergy-laden, very-oily skin needs special attention. I spray this on my face after toning and put on my serum or moisturizer while this is still wet. It is soothing on my skin. I also will spritz it on dry, makeup free skin before putting on my face--if its a stay at home but gotta run errands later in the day. I will switch this out with the GoW Witch Hazel Hydrosol. They have the same texture/consistency. Both are equally soothing to skin. This doesn't trigger my rosacea, and I have no redness after using this, i think it helps prevent the redness that using soft water sometimes triggers. I used to think hydrosols were unnecessary--being beyond oily, esp. in humidity.. but I appreciate this product as a layer of soothing moisture that gets locked in by whatever I apply over it. It's also a soothing moment of aromatherapy. The scent dissipates fully in under 60 seconds. As I alternate this with another hydrosol, it lasts me a couple months. This is on my "Reorder List."

Liquid -Maybelline -FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

on 12/12/2017 2:03:00 PM

This looks like straight up paint on my face and emphasizes fine lines and wrinkles that I didn’t even know I had. I’m 24 and this foundation makes me look ten years older. However they have an awesome shade range and it is affordable. If you have super soft baby skin and no problem with dryness or pores this might work for you.

Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand -Tanwise Dark Bronzing Sunless Mousse (New)

on 12/12/2017 1:58:00 PM

foto

After using this product for a few years and trying different techniques to apply it, I finally made it work for me! If you apply it straight from the bottle you’re going to be sticky for a LONG time. I would put this on before bed and I’d wake up feeling so sticky and gross. It almost never fully dries and if you aren’t careful the product will slide around and leave brown patches and white patches. BUT, by adding a pump of body lotion to my hand with one pump of mousse this goes on perfectly and dries instantly. I also get a much more even and natural looking tan this way and it lasts just as long. I apply it this way with rubber gloves and never have any issue. The only problem is it will make your face darker than your body even with lotion so use sparingly! Also make sure to have a back up empty foam/pump bottle because the pump on this product is a piece of sh!t and will stop working half way through your tan.


Lipstick -NYX -Lip Lingerie

I am a fan of these lip colors, and have already gone back to purchase more. There a couple things I love about these lip colors and a couple things I don't- so depending on your tastes you may love or hate these (it seems people are really in or out with this product!!)

What I love- the shades are amazing. My nieces were visiting and started looking through my ,make-up. They put these on their lips...they died over the colors (apparently one of them looked a girl from Riverdale's shade!!!) The next day they both bought a couple of shades. They mix so beautiful too, so don't feel confined to what's in the tube- layer a couple of shades. Amazing.
They are a good price. If I can get a good lipcolor for 10 bucks or so I am happy. They go on smooth so you don't need to use a lot, these tube will last you.
I also feel they have a pretty good wear time. Maybe not all day, but I get a few hours out of them pretty easily.

What I don't love; the doe-foot applicator is just a NO! It's way to big for the product (pulls a ton out of the tube) and way too floppy to get a good line on the lips. I usually use it to get the color on, then use my finger or a small brush to distribute the color on the whole lip.
They can be a little drying. To me this is a drawback but not a deal breaker. I have a BITE lipcolor stick and it is so dry- I mean, sooo dry- I realize that the drying tends to sort of seal the product and make it last and is pretty common with long lasting mattes of all brands. There's a couple easy fixes for this- either swipe a very light coat of balm under your application, or use a little gloss or shine just on the center of the lips after the color has 'set' (about 5 minutes). I prefer the second of the two, as I like using a lipliner and then letting the color really stick to my lips.

Overall, I bought one...then went back for another, then went back for a third color. I currently have Urban Decay, Make-Up Forever and Bare Mineral matte lip colors that all go on very similar. This really feels like an equal to those products- I just wish the applicator were a little more on point!

Lipstick -NARS -Audacious Lipstick - Barbara

on 12/12/2017 1:26:00 PM

Executive summary: this color is beautiful, this formula is the pits.

This color is beautiful: I am a very fair woman and this is basically the color of my lips when I'm having a very pale day. It's not my lips but better, it's just my lip color in lipstick format. So basically it is the end all be all nude lip for me. It's a sandy pink with a dash of yellow, and it's transparent enough that a lip liner can really be fun to play with here. Today I wore it with MAC's Enoki and I am having a lovely trippy time remembering a mauve combo I wore at Estée Lauder in the early aughts. It's so gorgeous.

This formula is the pits: I am completely in the minority here, I know, but this is a wretched formula. The colors are so gorgeous though that I finally caved on Barbara (and might do with Shirley, too). It can give me "fadey" lip, and kind of a dry crusty looking lip if I don't baby sit it and if I go sans liner, it isn't lasting for longer than an hour. It feels gorgeous going on, but then it's done. But again I feel like I am so in the minority on this opinion that if you're on the fence, go try it. This color is so so fetching.

Moisturizers -Avon -Anew Platinum Night Cream

on 12/12/2017 1:18:00 PM

Oh my goodness, NO!! Initially, when applying the night cream, it felt rich and thick, seemed very moisturizing - although I do not like fragrances in face products. I was getting ready to go to bed, brushing my teeth, when I looked closer in the mirror - whatever this stuff has in it, well - the product was pilling - much like a cheap sweater does after wearing it once or twice.

I actually took a second look at the product label - thinking I had mistakenly applied some sort of masque to my face - but nope, this was the night cream. I just kept rubbing this crap off - can't imagine how unpleasant that would have made my pillowcase the next morning if I had not seen/felt these clumps.

Buyer Beware.

This suits my dry skin. This foundation is so lightweight that it feels like a tinted moisturizer. It kind of reminds me of Nars tinted moisturizer. Because its light and still have coverage enough, thumbs up on this one!

I have B30 which suits my NC25 skintone perfectly!

I love this serum! My hair is straight but during the winter it gets super dry and it is static prone! It look dull flat and messy but this serum even after teaching two yoga classes had kept my hair super shiny, soft , and absolutely no static which is awesome! I was worried when I first put it in my hand because it felt super greasy and I thought it would leave my hair greasy as well but it did not!

I think I have the new formula because it works amazingly with my hair. It really leaves my hair soft and voluminous and smells wonderful.


Blush -Glossier -Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

This product is unbelievable. My daughter-in-law got it for me - and when I saw the stickers that came with it I dismissed it as not serious make-up. Boy, was I wrong. I have been using the dusk below my cheekbone and the haze above. It gives a defined look and if you blend it really well you cannot tell you have make-up on. What really surprised me was that, at the end of the day, it looked just like I had applied it in the morning. I have never had a blush that lasted all day - never expected this to - but it did!! I have already reordered the two colors I am using - I don't want to run out before vacation - but it is true - you only need a tiny amount to do the job. I don't know why they send the stickers - I think that makes it look like "play make-up" - but this is the real thing. I never would have found this if not for my daughter-in-law - but I am so glad I did!!!

It’s an amazing make up remover! With just one pad I can take away the heaviest eye makeup and even concealer! It doesn’t leave a greasy feeling and does not irritate my eyes. I love it.

Lips -Milani -Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick

I bought Matte tender at Walmart. Loved it so much and went back to get matte dreamy. They are similar. Smooth texture and unscented. I think Tender or dreamy could be a dupe for Charlotte Tilbury's walk of shame?( I don't own that lipstick). I apply lip balm underneath them and apply the lipstick lightly. So pretty.


Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

Great quality, and does everything a mascara should (separates, lengthens, curls, lasts, volumizes). It can build up from natural to glam and is even a bit better than the Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced. Thumbs up!

Mascara -L'Oreal -Miss Baby Roll

Lengthening, volumizing, long-lasting, separating, and slightly curling. Everything I need in a mascara. Easy to remove with makeup remover, but I don't have the waterproof version, yet I can weep all I want while wearing it and it won't run at all! All-time favorite.
