My oily, cystic acne prone skin has enjoyed this moisturizer. I've gone through a few jars, about one jar every month and a half. I only use it at night as the last step in my routine. Occasionally I've worn it under my sunblock during the day as well. I get dry patches in the winter time on my chin and its hard to find a moisturizer that doesn't break me out. This did the trick! …Read more

This powder from Elizabeth Arden contains ceramide and Vitamin C to boost the skincare benefits of the makeup. I purchased it as part of a buy one get one free deal at the Elizabeth Arden outlet for $19.99 making each of them about $10 each. I bought both in the shade 02 which is a little on the lighter side but the powder doesn't actually have all that much pigment to begin with so it was …Read more

This is the perfect every day eye palette. It's the classic Natural Eye Palette in a matte finish. I love the packaging, very slim and it stays shut- great for traveling. My favorite is wearing Heaven all over the lid with Cashmere Bunny in the crease. I personally don't touch the Sexpresso shade very often but my sister told me she likes to use it to fill in her eyebrows on occasion …Read more

I normally love Too Faced, they are my favorite makeup brand but this mascara is a dud for me. I'm reviewing the newest formula, not the old one. I purchased this mascara at Beauty Brands for about $12 on sale and decided to give it a whirl.
First off, the formula is waterproof and it doesn't come off without makeup remover. I am a housekeeper and I do sweat and it's nice …

I've gone through 3 bottles of the pink one, Happy Go Lather. I'm just absolutely addicted to the luscious smell of roses in this body wash. I can't get enough of it! It matches my shampoo (thanks HE for rereleasing the classic rose shampoo!) so that's always fun too. I just wish they had a matching lotion and body spray! I love this smell! The only thing I don't like is …Read more

Jun/19/2013

I've bought this multiple times. It's dirt cheap, easy to find and the shade selection is a plus! I hate hate hate the packaging though. Impossible to travel with. I'm not impressed with the ingredients. It is mattifying and works very well but there are SO many preservatives in this powder it's a little ridiculous. I also read coconut oil as an ingredient so it's not oil …Read more

I found this on manager's special at my local Kroger and decided- heck why not- it's only $3! I wish I had grabbed more. I got the "blush" one- it was amazing! It didn't leave ridiculous build up and it brushed out wonderfully! My only problem is I can't find it anywhere! I really enjoyed it and I want to repurchase it again- when I find it!

I've purchased this multiple times now, it's amazing! It helps mattify and bring volume to oily, second day hair! It's especially useful if you accidentally used a little too much oily product in your hair. It has a light fresh smell of the "Body by Victoria" fragrance. If your nozzle gets clogged, try running it under hot water. If it breaks after you just bought it (its …Read more

I'm through my second pack of these. I didn't use them to remove eye makeup. The smell doesn't sting my eyes but I do enjoy the tangy smell of grapefruit! I use them on my neck to help get rid of the excess makeup that may have been left behind when I wash my face in the sink. They are convenient and a good price. I will keep repurchasing!

Jun/12/2013

Sexy Little Things Heartbreaker debuted Valentine's Day 2013. It's a fresh fragrance of honeysuckle, vetiver and bergamot. The smell is strong and lasts about 4 hours on my skin. The honeysuckle makes it a very unique fragrance to Victoria's Secret and it's a different kind of sweet scent. The packaging is typical of SLT with an atomizer bottle that has a twist turn on and off …Read more
