I absolutely LOVE this blush for my extremely pale skin. It is incredibly pigmented and I need the smallest amount to get pink cheeks. Bella Bamba is the perfect color for my skin tone, being both bright and glowy.


I have a gripe with all Benefit blushes however...who in the world came up with this packaging? Yes it looks all cute and adorable as all Benefit products do, but you …

What is the point of a product like this really???


It looks pretty in the tube, absolutely gorgeous, however it is so incredibly sheer. What it looks like in the tube is pretty much impossible to get on you lips no matter how much you put on.


The lasting power of this is absolutely pathetic, you lick or nibble your lips once and it is completely 100% gone. Not …

When I was tan in the past I was capable of wearing this foundation, however at this moment it is just too dark. However even if they had my shade...I wouldn't wear it.


I now know why they call it "Oxygen Wow", more like Wow it Oxidizes like crazy. This foundation darkens like no other. This foundation can look absolutely when applying it to a person's face …

Feb/09/2013

This is a foundation that only looks good on a few...and just does not react with some people's skin types very well. Most especially for those that have dry skin like myself, now I am too pale for this product, the color selection for this product...not so good.


Despite this looking bad on dry skin (shows off any dry patches) it also tends to break down quite quickly on …

Feb/09/2013

This product really doesn't do anything. It blends to the point that it is nonexistent but maybe that is because of my extremely pale skin.


As much as I would like to use this to correct it just isn't pigmented enough compared to my beloved Bobbi Brown corrector. It is moisturizing, but even when I work for Benefit freelance I still cannot manage to explain what it is …

This was a good face mask...how ever at least for me, it is definitely not LUSH's best.

Normally I use Oatafix face mask, which smells like Oatmeal cookies on your skin. I like that one because it is very hydrating, but due to the fact that they were out at my LUSH this was the next best thing. The smell how ever was something that I could barely tolerate, it was very perfumy in …

This bottle of nail top coat did me well for quite a while. But noticeably when I started getting half way through it just did not work the same.

It did extend the lifetime of my manicures, but once it did chip, it was extremely easy to just peel the rest of the nail polish right off. I found that if I was not careful, a whole nail or toe nail of polish would actually just flake off in …

Are the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters really worth all of the hype that they are getting through YouTube? I'm not so sure. Is it a great lipstick? Yes it is!

They are a nice creamy formula that I absolutely love, and it kind of reminds me of Benefit's Silky Finish Lipsticks, which are my all time favorite. The only thing that isn't quite up to par to its Benefit …

Dec/16/2011

At first I must admit I was very skeptical about this product, mainly because I have heard so many mixed reviews. I however absolutely love it.


I am a firm believer that it is rare to actually break out from a foundation if you take the proper steps to cleanse your face after using it (or if your allergic to ingredients which is another story). I have been breaking out a bit …

I absolutely adore this products, and it is one that I shall never live without again. But I wish it came in more colors.


I have crazy dark eye circles thanks to swim goggles tightly against my face for many hours every day for years. It is basically impossible for the most opaque of concealers to cover my dark circles. This is an added layer that helps counter the purple under …
