Self Tanners -Clarins -Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

This is great!
I'm very fair, so any sort of tanning in the sun makes my skin red, dry and irritated. Also if I do get a very slight colour it lasts maybe a week. Considering the risks with tanning, I really wanted to try a self-tanner to not look so pasty all the time. Mixing 4-5 drops into moisturizer really gives a result in 2-3 days. The tiny bottle lasts a long time and the tan is very natural.


Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

Wow! I didnt expect it to be such a good mascara. I am a fan of Le volume de Chanel but i was disappointed of the last two tubes i bougth and i switched to Lash paradise mostly because i ve read that it has a thick consistency, which helps to hold a curl and add length. It us true. It is thick enough but not as much as BTS which dries out in a few weeks and also flakes like crazy! I wanted to love BTS and i received it as a gift 3 times (!!!).I used it several times and each time i thought "ok, this tube will be better" but i always ended up with tiny pieces of mascara in my eyes after 1 or 2 hours. Lash paradise doesn't flake and it gives length, volume and curve.I love it!

Eyeliner -BeneFit Cosmetics -They're Real Push-Up Eyeliner

What an awful eyeliner! Awful is an understatement. Can't believe I wasted my hard earned money on this. I'll stick to my drugstore ones. Every time you use it, you have to keep twisting it. It takes forever for product to come out and when it does it's a complete mess. I don't know about the rest of the population but I'm going to venture a guess and say no one has time to deal with this when they're in a rush in the early morning. Eyeliner should be one of the simpler steps. I must have hit my head when I decided to purchase this. The only reason I kept using it was because it was expensive and I didn't want to completely waste it. The tip is rubber and completely tugs on my eyelids so I can't get the perfect winged liner. Excuse me but I'm not trying to get premature wrinkles. If that's what you want, this eyeliner will do the trick. I'm sorry to say this but I've never hated an eyeliner so much. Usually the problem with eyeliners I have is that it smudges. Nope, this is much worse than I ever expected. Save your money and skip on this one guys!

Toners -Clinique -Clarifying Lotion #2

on 12/14/2017 2:03:00 PM

I have never actually bought this toner before I have this in the sample try me sizes from bonuses & recently a relative gave me some more Bc she didn't want them!
I don't hink 💭 this is a good toner to be using Bc it has so much alcohol in it & stupid menthol which irritates the skin! I personally have a very oily skin type & have only used this toner occasionally to clean up my t zone in between washings & during the day especially in the summer time! I don't think this stuff actually exfoliates anything Bc I has no salicyclic acid in it!
& I love ❤️ the commentary from a reviewer who said Clinique toners are like junk food! LOL!


Lip Treatments -Rodan and Fields -Essentials Lip Shield

on 12/14/2017 1:52:00 PM

My coworker is an active R&F consultant (I am not, I don't sell it at all.) and she gifted me a lip balm, ahem $9 lip treatment (pack of 2 for $18 - 4.5 grams each) which smells delightfully of citrus/grapefruit. Basic petrolatum with an Avobenzone sunscreen (SPF 25) and so far I like it. For free? Yes, please. For $9 - maybe.


Gels/Soaps -Aveeno -Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash

This is actually for the lotion, but like the other reviewers for the body wash, I've had a HORRIBLE allergic reaction to this. I've used the regular aveeno moisturizers before and thought I'd get something that smelled good. After just two days I have rashes all over both of my arms. Definitely going in the trash.


Cleansers -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Raw Honey

on 12/14/2017 1:39:00 PM

honey is one of skin's best friends. I've used raw honey for 2 weeks and i'm totally happy with it. My skin feels baby-butt soft, looks radiant and healthy. Honey doesnt strip oil from my face as well and it is a natural humectant so it keeps my skin hydrated and smooth all the time in the harsh winter. Unfortunately i have never had a good experience with honey face mask, it always left my face red with 1 to 2 new pimples, i guess my skin cant tolerate sth in honey for too long. But mix it with a few drops of water and use for face washing and rinse it off after 1-2 minutes? No problem. Best best best in terms of natural skincare.!


Concealers -Yves Saint Laurent -Anti-Cernes Multi Action Concealer #1

on 12/14/2017 1:36:00 PM

If you love this concealer as much as I do, be warned - this is being discontinued!
All the stores near me have already run out of my shade, and I was told by a lady at a YSL counter that it's being phased out after they released the new "All Hours" concealer. Here's a eulogy for my dark circles' best friend and the holy grail concealer of several years:

Anti-cernes is the best product I've found for both the undereye circles and blemishes. It has the full coverage of a stick concealer, but the formula is more emollient and blendable than that of other stick (or even cream) concealers I've tried. It glides on almost as easily as a lipstick, without dragging the skin or piling, and I only need to tap it lightly with warm fingertips to blend it into the skin. The narrow tube is just the right size - I can swipe it easily over the very narrow (and very dark!) area between the inner corner of my eyes and the nose, and it instantly brightens up my whole face. If I have something particularly nasty on my skin, I like to let it sit for a couple of minutes before blending to dry up and set a bit, and then carefully tap it in around the edges - this gives me a completely opaque coverage without looking too-too cakey.
Thanks to the precise application and because it doesn't require a lot of blending, it stays put exactly where I applied it and doesn't smear off of whatever I was trying to cover, get into the creases under my eyes, or smudge all around the place, giving me the "reverse panda" eyes (I'm not terribly good with concealers, so this was always a problem with liquid formulas). The finish is slightly luminous - just enough to brighten my eyes a bit and not look flat and dry, but not so much that it emphasizes undereye puffiness (like Touche Eclat) or makes concealed blemishes shine like beacons.
The biggest problem with this was the shade range. I really wish YSL had expanded it and put as much effort into promoting Anti-cernes as its more famous cousin, Touche Eclat - at least for me, this leaves TE completely in the dust.

After I failed to find this in stores, I finally broke down and got the famous (and infamously expensive) Cle de Peau stick. I was always curious if it might be even better than my YSL, but was avoiding it because of the price (actually, CdP turned out to be more than twice the size of YSL, so the price per weight is pretty much the same). It's good, but, you know...it's just not as good - drier, flatter, too big to apply out of the tube, creases a bit more.


Cleansers -Clinique -Liquid Facial Soap - Mild

on 12/14/2017 12:55:00 PM

I really love Clinique skincare products Bc they are fragrance free & im very allergic to all perfumed products on my skin! & I have a very oily skin type especially on my t zone! & this face cleanser really works well for me! Though Clinique targets this for normal dry combinations normal skin it's better suited for oily combo skin types Bc I can definitely see this being kinda drying for my parts of my face which are drier Bc as the Paula skin expert lady said it does have a lot of salt listed on top of
The ingredients list!
The thing I love ❤️most about this face cleanser is the clean fresh chamomile scent it has! It reminds me of their discontinued skin texture lotion from years ago when they realized the yellow lotion was not a good choice for oily skin types & this mild version doesn't have menthol like the oily one! & this liquid mild soap is definitely much better than their all their bars of soaps! Seriously who still recommends using bar soap for their faces!


Cleansers -Bioderma -Atoderm Gel Douche Face Body

Nice body wash, haven't tried it on my face yet. It is very gentle, rinses clean without being too drying, has a light scent but nothing too noticeable or overpowering. Foams up a lot which I like, doesn't irritate my skin which is acne prone but I also have psoriasis. Will repurchase.

Eyeliner -Stila -Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

on 12/14/2017 12:47:00 PM

So initially I didn't like this, did not find it as smooth on application as L'oreal's liquid liner. It's not as smooth but it certainly lives up to it's "stay all day" name. This stuff does not budge. It was even difficult to remove with my waterproof makeup remover. Great if you have difficulty with liner staying in place. Would probably repurchase.

Polishes -Revlon -Nail Enamel

Nothing impressive about this polish.
The color selection is great. The size is generous and it doesn't dry fast in the bottle, either on your nails. The brush is thin long and straight cut, not the easiest combo to work with. Dark shades require base otherwise they'll stain your nail. Light shades can come out streaky and less pigmented than some might desire.


Lips -Stila -Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

I have a small tube of this in Perla, a pinky mauve shade. It came with a Stila set I purchased at sephora. The shade probably isn't something I would normally go for, it's not bad but not a fav for me. The lipstick itself is nice, it's matte, easy to apply and very long lasting. I do apply a balm underneath (nuxe reve de miel) to help this product not look too dry. Would repurchase in other shades.


Liquid -Bourjois -Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

on 12/14/2017 12:22:00 PM

I have very dry and sensitive skin, so choosing the right foundation is quite difficult for me. This one is not like some other foundations I used before, it doesn't make my skin caky and heavy when I apply it with a brush and then blend with a RT sponge. From my experience, if you have dry skin, you need to use a brush to apply foundation and a sponge to blend, don't use just the brush or just the sponge to apply and blend. The foundation has light to medium coverage, luminous finish and easy to transfer from your face to your clothes or your hands if you carelessly touch your face.Therefore, you really need a good powder to keep it in place. It could stay nice on your face in four hours, after that it will get separated considerably. In general, If you want a light and luminous finish, it is the right one, but if you want more coverage and a longlasting effect, you might choose another option. This foundation is a little more expensive, in comparison to other drugstore foundations with medium and high coverage. I will give it 3.5 points for not making my skin look caky, flaky, dry and heavy.

Eye Makeup Remover -Neal's Yard -Organic Eye Makeup Remover

I'm on my 2nd bottle now. It doesn't irritate my eyes - actually I find it soothing and it does a good job of removing my eye makeup, including mascara. I used to use the Lancome one that is very popular, but I prefer this one as it's gentler, chemical free and does just as good of a job.
