Shampoo -Paul Mitchell - Tea Tree Special Shampoo

on 10/20/2017 4:13:00 PM

I love this shampoo. I have an oily scalp and experience all the wonderful joys that come along with it. This shampoo is great. A little goes along way. I love the intense tingle (scalp, nose, sometimes eyes...it is that strong). It does a great job of cleansing my oily scalp and isn't harsh on my drier ends however I do use a very moisturizing conditioner (PM tea tree and lavender or PM Super Charged Moisture or Joice hydrating conditioner). My hair is soft and clean. Love it.


Blush -Clinique - Cheek Pop in Pink Pop

This has become my go-to blush, have bought it twice now. It's the perfect pink blush that makes you look youthful and glowy. No brown or orange tones, which I hate in a blush. It's also got the perfect balance of pigment and sheen. So many blushes these days have too much frost and not enough pigment so when you try to build them your face just gets too shiny, with very little color. This is just right!

Masks -Juice Beauty - Green Apple Peel- Sensitive Skin

i tried a sample of this and i pretty much saw no results. at one point i was using it once a week for about 4 weeks and there was really no improvement in my skin. the only time it did anything whatsoever was one time when i used it while i was having severe breakouts, i used it before bed and the next morning all the whiteheads had faded down to smaller red blemishes with no head. i suppose it's possible that it takes more than a month of continuous use to see results but i still didn't feel like the price of the full size product was worth the results that i saw.


Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman - Eye Smudge + Diffuse Set

on 10/20/2017 3:47:00 PM

I'm surprised this little set isn't reviewed yet, though I only noticed in my local drugstore in the past few months. If you like to do the smudgie thing around your eyes (particularly underneath), this little set will perform. I admittedly don't own a lot of RT brushes, but these minis (regular length but small brush heads) were so darn cute. I've lately been noticing that my eye makeup just plain looks better when I do the 'halo' eye - bringing the eye shadow down along the bottom lash line. I've got pencil brushes and tiny paddle brushes but these seem to be the best of both worlds. Not too pointy or too flat, the tiny fluff brushes are simply just made to smudge perfectly (and do any other detailed work). And the included sharpener is GOOD. It works on those plastic eye liner pencils that sometimes destroy other cheaper sharpeners. 3 winners in one little package.

Eye Shadow -E.L.F. - Baked Eyeshadow-ALL

on 10/20/2017 3:16:00 PM

I have the Baked Eyeshadow Palette in 'California'. First of all, the packaging is a bit big and bulky and isn't great for traveling. I really like the color selection that gives you a nice bronzy eye, great for Autumn time. The formula isn't great. I would recommend using your fingers with this product or the E.L.F 'C' Eyeshadow Brush. Good for the price, you just have to make it work with the formula.


Mascara -Revlon - Volume + Length Magnified Mascara

on 10/20/2017 3:04:00 PM

Volume and length is an absolute untruth. This product provides neither. I had never tried it and was looking for a change. I am always leery of switching mascara. I ended up calling Revlon and they are sending a $10 gift certificate. I don't understand why anyone comments about tossing it in the trash and not even calling for a refund! Nice to be made of money, I suppose. Unfortunately, the mascara the representative recommended is ALSO getting terrible reviews! I'll just find another Revlon product to use the coupon on and get a L'Oreal mascara. :(

Misc Beauty Tools -Tweezerman - tweezers

on 10/20/2017 2:52:00 PM

I literally cannot understand all the hype. My only thought is I got a different model than most people are so crazy about. I ordered the Stainless Steel Slant Tweezer. The ends are so sharp and fine that it tends to nick and pull the skin, while breaking the hair off rather than pulling it out at the root. Very bad for fine, blonde hairs. Okay for thicker hairs. Ironically the pair that cost about $4.00 from Sally's and looks like a little stripper, is much easier to use. The Tweezerman cost about $16.00 and I have nothing to show for it but some rather battered brow bone area. I actually didn't have any better luck with the Tweezerman Pro Lash Curl. After thinking for years that I must be missing out on the best pair of tweezers ever, I am sad. At the suggestion of MUB I'll be trying Rubis tweezers next. Thumbs down to Tweezerman.

How can I buy this item


Mascara -Merle Norman - Fat Lash

on 10/20/2017 2:42:00 PM

I have short, thin lashes. This mascara thickened and lengthened my lashes with one coat. I do go over my lashes with the wand a few times to get better separation. I was a devotee to Chanel Inimitable Intense, but Fat Lash Is better for thickening, and lengthening my lashes. It's also cheaper than Chanel. Chanel is easier to remove with an oil cleanser than MN.


Concealers -Tarte - Shape tape

on 10/20/2017 2:23:00 PM

This concealer is my holy grail! I started using this only recently and I'm already in love. I have a lot of hyper pigmentation around my cheek area and along my jawline, as well as occasional breakouts, so I've tested a fair share of concealers but couldn't find one which would completely satisfy my needs. This concealer helps cover those flaws up pretty well without looking cakey. I wasn't too sure about this at first but then I compared it to my other favorites- maybelline fit me and nars radiant creamy concealer- and I honestly liked this better (the amazing coverage being one of the reasons)
It covers pretty good for the undereyes as well.
This is definitely suitable for those who have any kind of scarring or acne on their face since its coverage is pretty heavy, however I use it as a day to day concealer as well, a little goes a looong way. Most people use up too much product in one go then complain if it ends up looking cakey. So I'd suggest using a minute amount.
In conclusion everybody's skin is different and even though I'm very happy with this product, it may not be suitable for them, so I'd recommend getting a sample first.

Fragrances -Chanel - Gabrielle

on 10/20/2017 2:07:00 PM

Sad to see Chanel entering the vulgarity of mass intended boredom! Just a paradoxal joke it is named Gabrielle while she was the force behind picking master pieces like Chanel 5, Cuir de Russie, Bois des Iles... some will say this is "contemporary". Yet all, including those, know this is simply comercial and utterly banal!


Treatments (Face) -Chanel - Le Blanc Brightening Concentrate Continuous Action TXC

Never understood why Chanel has at least 4 different versions of this serum sold in different parts of the world. This is by far the best but harder and harder to find, probably discontinued but most SAs don't even know... fabulous product with great results.


Mascara -BeneFit Cosmetics - Roller Lash

I REALLY love this product, this is my current go to mascara. It not only defines/ liven's up your lashes, but keep them looking natural instead of doing that goopy thing most mascaras tend to.
I've used mascaras from maybelline, revlon, estee lauder,lancome, but this is by far- my favorite. I've recommended this to my friends and they loved it as well!


Liquid -Revlon - Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

on 10/20/2017 1:58:00 PM

foto

This was recommended by a couple of beauty gurus that I watch, so I thought I would give it a try. I have combination skin, and at age 46 I am a little picky on my foundation. I would say the most important things to me are coverage and staying power. This foundation blew me away in both of those areas.

The cons of this product- getting a perfect shade match. I felt like the shade I got looked dark in the bottle, but on my face it is lighter than expected. I will be getting another shade and mixing a bit as I go. I also don't love the packaging. The seal is huge, and mine was almost impossible to peel off. Parts of it are still on the bottle, getting gross and sticky. So annoying.

HOWEVER I will deal with a crappy seal because I LOVE this foundation. I have been using it about a week now and it truly does the job. It stays on really well, and I love that my face doesn't go oily when I wear it. I had a Make-Up Forever and a EsteeLauder Double Wear sample in my drawer when I bought this. I was trying to decide between the other two foundations (croak- they are over $40.00 each!) because I was just struggling to find a foundation I was excited about. let me tell you- those others have nothing on this Revlon foundation. I rotated between the brands and literally, while the formulas may be different, the outcome is so similar, I can't see spending more than the 10 bucks on the Revlon. I will keep this on hand at all times, maybe occasionally I will splurge on a high end foundation if a sale hits (or I can use points for a deluxe sample) but for the day to day this is a winner. Heading out to get more this weekend!

One of the few light/nude/neutrals that works on me, but I normally prefer brighter colors.
