THIS IS AMAZING. SO WORTH THE EXTRA TIME SPENT TO ACHIEVE LONG LASHES.

I got it from Costco for $15. At the time I figured, "What could I lose? It's cheap enough." I'm disappointed that the full price is twice as much but I don't think that will stop me from repurchasing the product. I only wish this product lasted for longer than a month.

I was …

*PALE LADIES WILL LOVE THIS* (Shade 1!)


I've bought this product THREE times already. It is the cheapest, best wearing concealer that I've found and it could quite possibly be my holy grail concealer / foundation for lazy days. My only gripe is that for the way I use it (apply directly to face, fill in tops of cheekbones, undereyes, nose and spots), one tube lasts only …

Polishes - L'Oreal Paris - Pro Manicure Nail Polish How Romantic

Mar/23/2014

Overall this is a great milky pink for a chic cream look.

It can be streaky. I tend to paint my nails with thick layers, though, and that seemed to stop it from streaking. I used opi top coat as a base and top, and needed only two coats of this polish for great color payoff. I used a hairdryer on cool in between coats for twenty seconds, and it dried fairly quickly. Most other sheer …

Polishes - Essie - Allure

Allure is great when layered 3-4 times. That makes drying time a pain, though. It gives your nails a nice neutral white glaze effect that looks very classy and chic. It's hard to find a neutral that compliments very pale skin (most are too beige), but this one fits the bill.

Though I like it a lot, I've noticed it can look gray in some lights - which isn't too …

Lips - Yves Saint Laurent - Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm

I have two and I love them! I have number 8 & 12. One's a raspberry pink while the other is more purple.

They give you just the right amount of color to give a subtle hint and shine. Looks very natural. Can be layered for a brighter color. Can also be layered over lipsticks. I notice I love to use them over lipsticks that can dry a little too matte - and the ysl texture over …

Sunscreen - CLARINS - UV PLUS Protective Day Screen SPF 40 [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/20/2014

I had no idea lightweight sunscreens existed before buying this product! This is amazing, truly! Worth the money!

I have been wearing Neutrogena spf 100+ every day for the past 6 years (I freckle and burn a lot if I don't), and I'd grown accustomed to something rather heavy, oily, and thick. This was never a problem until I realized it was irritating my skin and causing …

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

Jan/04/2014

This stuff is pure witchcraft.

I have never had my blush stay put all day until I tried this product. I don't have terribly oily skin on its own, but I do wear a good amount of face products under my foundation that tend to get oily. (Namely, sunscreen and Armani luminous silk foundation which is not known for its staying power). My blush would wear off and my foundation would …

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

Dec/25/2013

I'm so pleased with this product. Not only does it take off all my face makeup (I use olive oil for my eye makeup) but the essential oils in it really soothe my skin so it's glowing by the time I'm done with it. Any redness is also soothed.

To use this I spill a little less than a dime size of product on my facial brush. It's not clarisonic, but it's the $7 …

Treatments (Eye) - Philosophy - Hope in a Tube - High Density Eye and Lip Firming Cream

EDIT: I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to this little guy. While I loved the plumping effect it had on my lips, I wasn't too happy with the puffiness it caused under my eyes -- especially when I bought this to combat the puffiness I already had. What a rip off!

Weird texture! Tacky and thick, but a little goes a long way. I've noticed putting …

Foundations - COVER FX - Total Cover Cream Foundation

Dec/03/2013

This product is too hard to work with. I've returned it.

I've used liquid foundations in the past, and the switch to a cream that took extra work to blend was not appealing. The coverage is very buildable, from medium to full. The finish is OILY.

Make sure you get matched by someone knowledgeable. I was given the lightest shade in neutral, but after putting it …
