BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

Mar/10/2017

This is by far my favorite base product. I am on my second tube. The first time around I choose the illumination version because it was summer and I wanted that really glowy look. I still love that formula, but after trying the original I like this one much more. It is just as dewy but without any sparkles. I also think that this formula has slightly more coverage that the illumination …Read more

Lipstick - MILANI - Color Statement Lipstick (All Colors)

I love this l/s. I have two shades, dulce caramelo and nude creme. They are lightweight, hydrating, pigmented and smell wonderful. They usually put milani on sale at CVS so the price was good. I am not a big l/s person at all, usually just wear chapstick or vaseline but these feel so comfortable on my lips that I don't mind wearing them. They're not very long lasting, esp if …Read more

Powder - IT Cosmetics - Celebration Foundation Illumination

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2017

I have been using this product for about 2 weeks. IT Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands so when I needed a new powder I knew I wanted something from them. I do not use this as a powder foundation, but rather as a setting powder. It can get really cakey if you apply too much, so a light dusting all over your face or even targeted areas that you want a little more coverage gives the best …Read more

Concealers - bareMinerals - Stroke of LIght

Unfortunately this did not work for me. It really does have glitter in it, not a good look over my eye bags. Also the color was wayyyyy off for me. I have used Complexion Rescue by BE in shade 3 vanilla and it was a perfect match. So I figured that the second lightest color in the concealer would match. I usually go for the lightest shade but it was VERY pink looking. The color I choose …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (All brands)

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2017

I am writing a review for extra virgin coconut oil in general because I have tried multiple brands. I have always had clear, though oily, skin. I wanted to be "all natural" and ditch my store bought skin care routine for one holy grail product, and of course, I picked coconut oil, what else right? It works okay in my hair. I honestly don't see that much of a difference in …Read more

Concealers - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

Jan/19/2017

I am a huge fan of It Cosmetics, whether it be brushes, makeup, or skincare, everything that I have I truly love and use daily. I am 28 and starting to think about skincare and all things anti-aging. This concealer, along with all of their products, is actually good for your delicate under eye skin. I am very fair with yellow undertones, so shades are always a difficult issue for me. The …Read more

Lip Treatments - Vaseline - Lip Therapy - Rosy Lips

Dec/30/2016

I love regular Vaseline for my lips so i figured that a pretty, pink-tinted, small container of it would be perfect! And it would be, except for the disgusting smell, well actually disgusting TASTE. I am not sensitive to scents or fragrances, and usually really enjoy them but this scent does not belong in your mouth. I LOVE roses, in fact my middle name is rose. The smell itself is not bad …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

Dec/14/2016

I have very fair skin with yellow/olive undertones. W1-2 works for me when I have a tan, but in the winter, forget it. It's very obviously too dark. It also doesn't have as much of a yellow undertone as it should for "warm". When first applied, it's absolutely gorgeous. The finish is super dewy and luminous, but not shimmery, glittery, or sparkly. It has a thin …Read more

Blush - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder - St. Lucia

Dec/14/2016

The blush is actually my favorite blush right now. I am fair with yellow/olivey undertones and I have been looking for the perfect cheek color, and this is it. It is not very pigmented which I appreciate because it actually looks like a pretty, natural flush of color on your cheeks instead of bozo-the-clown red circles. It has shimmer and sparkles in it which I don't mind. The base …Read more

I love this concealer. It is so full coverage that I use it as a mixer with a lighter coverage concealer. I put the lighter coverage one on first then use a tiny dot maybe the size of a sprinkle of master conceal under each eye. I'm very fair and shade "fair" is actually light enough for me. it is okay for spot concealing but I prefer it for under eye concealer. It lasts all …Read more
