This is a review comparing the newer shade W0.5 Creamy Ivory to W1 Porcelain.

Both of these colors work for me. Though I find W0.5 the better match because it leans more yellow while W1 leans more peachy (I am a very pale yellow!) There really does not appear to be much difference in the lightness between the two. Looking at the bottles side by side, W0.5 has a LOT less of the …

I got this on sale for a very good price ($5, woo!) in the shade Pale. For reference, I use foundation shades L'oreal True Match W1 and MAC Studio Fix NC10. I find both of those a tad too dark on me though. I'm on the fence about this foundation still. I have worn it twice so far. It is actually a very good shade match for me. It is strange to actually match my neck so well for a …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Maybelline New York - FaceStudio Master Prime Primer Makeup - Blur + Redness Control

I got this on a whim one day in Ulta because I was not wearing foundation that day and my face was red. It said on the tube that you could wear it alone, so that is what I did. I slathered it on my face and it did absolutely nothing except maybe make me look oilier. The primer itself just looks white (no visible green pigment). It does NOTHING for redness and I don't know why it claims that …Read more

Concealers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - 16HR Camo Concealer

This is actually a great concealer for the price! It really is a very good dupe for Tarte Shape Tape. It ever so very slightly can crease under my eyes thanks to fine lines (and so does every other concealer) but more so if you use too much product (a little goes a long way for sure). Tarte ST actually creases under my eyes MORE than this! It really does last all day too, even though I don't …Read more

I don't know why there is so much dislike for this fragrance! I loved it at first sniff. This is my third time to wear it. To me... It is hard to describe what it smells like. Warm, spicy, woodsy with vanilla is what I can smell. I was drawn in by the name and the bottle. Love the look and name. It looks kind of sinister to me (especially with my aged bottle that has amber colored juice …Read more

BB Cream - Holika Holika - Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream

This review is for shade 1 (the lighter one)

Pros: Smells great, lightweight, has SPF, large amount of product
Cons: Hard to spread, has parabens

It is pretty rare to find a BB cream that is as pale as this. It is much lighter than it looks in the bottle or before you blend it in. I have yet to try any Bb creams or foundations that are TOO light for me. I can wear …

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Grapeseed Oil

Created with Sketch.

Oct/05/2014

I've been using Now Foods brand grapeseed oil for about 2 months now. I use it all over my face (even eyelids) and anywhere else that needs mosturizing. I love it! I have oily, acne prone skin but this oil does not break me out and does not make me oilier... In fact, I think my face is LESS oily. I have not had any major pimples since I started using this (I had a few cysts before I …Read more
