Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Stiletto Waterproof Mascara

First time I used this, I poked my eye a bit because the bristles on the brush are hard and spikey. Really take your time with it! I absolutely love the formula though even though the brush is not my fave. It is perfectly glossy pitch black and hugs to the very tip of my lashes without clumping. I've repurchased this one a few times and hope it is never discontinued. I still love the Eyeko …Read more

I rarely get breakouts but my skin clogs up easily when I go overboard on layering creams or use too much oil. So the first time I used this product, when my skin was acting normal with no breakouts, I didn't get why some people give it rave reviews. It felt too drying and very tightening. Fast forwards to a few weeks later and I have this annoying pimple that just won't go away …Read more

Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

3.0

I bought this in black and it did thicken up my brow hairs quite nicely. Doesn't make them crunchy or stiff feeling. But for the price, I'm underwhelmed. It didn't hold up my thick brow hairs at all. It didn't even last through the morning for me. I'll be returning this for sure.

I love the feel of this sunscreen, it's practically weightless and truly feels and looks like I have nothing on. It doesn't make me greasy nor dry me out, it doesn't pill with my other skincare or makeup, and there's no strong scent. However, I don't know how much protection this really offers because I never use chemical sunscreens alone. I'm always setting …Read more

I'm not into berry lip scented products, so I waited till Sephora had the other flavors for sale. I bought the apple-lime one and have been absolutely loving it. Every night I would slather on lip balm and still have chapped lips in the morning. It was super frustrating! But after the first night of the Laneige mask, my lips were very soft and noticeably plumper. The most amazing thing …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Verb Ghost Oil

Jul/28/2018

My hair is thick, mostly wavy, is color treated and loves moisture. When I first tried Ghost oil as a sample, gotta admit I hated it. Immediately tossed it in the trash. Recently I sampled the Verb Sea Shampoo and Conditioner and loved it enough to buy the set with the Ghost oil (was practically free in the set). So now, I actually do like the scent of it (it doesnt last long though) and …Read more

I love it. Got a perfect match with Medium-Tan (I'm usually a medium neutral/warm, NC 35ish, Nars St Moritz). It applies beautifully with a fluffy brush. I love that it has SPF 50. But the case? Hate it. It is bulky because of the bottom area that holds a sponge. I don't do sponges. I also wish this was refillable! What a waste of packaging!!

In photos, my face looks flawless …

Basically, this smells like ballet shoes to me. The first whiff did not open well at all..in fact if I had tried it on in store I would have scrubbed it off immediately. But as it mingled with my skin it did settle nicely. I find it to be long lasting and actually do get more of that powdery note at the base. This one seems to cling very close to the skin. All through its evolution I …Read more

I regret buying this. It was an unplanned purchase that I jumped on as soon as I saw it being sold at Sephora. I tried it out for a week and found it to be too drying for my skin. The faint strawberry scent was very enjoyable though.

Best lip balm ever. I have the Shea & Vitamin E (smells like vanilla to me), Grapefruit & Ginger, and Black tea & Blackberry. I love them all but if I had to pick a favorite it would probably be the grapefruit. I tried 4 different Burt's Bees balms and never understood why people loved them so much. The Jack Black feels sooo much better. The only other lip balms I enjoy just as …Read more
