Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest of the Sea Foundation

Sep/15/2016

This is currently my new foundation obsession! I love this foundation because of how light it feels on the skin. I can't stand it when I can feel my foundation on my face, and that is never the case with this baby. It's water based, making it super lightweight and it gets along great with my oily skin. I apply it with either a beauty blender or a brush, although I must add that while …Read more

Moisturizers - First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Cream

Jan/16/2016

I received a sample size version of this product in an ispy bag a couple of months ago, and I must say that I am glad that this is not something I purchased on my own. This is not a cheap cream, and I don't believe that the results justify the price. I did not notice any significant difference in the softness of my hands, even after keeping it in my bag and applying it several times a day. I …Read more

Lipstick - Too Faced - Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2016

These are a fun splurge for me. While some people may not consider this a splurge, $21 a lipstick is a tad bit expensive in my book, but it's not enough to keep me from picking one of these up from time to time. The color selection is pretty large, BUT I MUST SAY, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams have the exact same finish and longevity as these so if you CAN find a NYX color dupe, I highly …Read more

Lips - Too Faced - Melted Metal Peony

While the color is fun and girly, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Istanbul is an exact dupe and it only costs $6.00. For this reason, I will not be repurchasing the Too Faced option.

Conditioner - Matrix - Biolage Exquisite Oil Conditioner

5.0

Jan/16/2016

I have found my holy grail for shampoo/conditioner. This stuff is so amazing that I literally no longer feel the need to do a weekly deep conditioning mask! The smell is divine, the price isn't all that daunting when you consider the quality, and my hair has never been happier! I have fine, dry hair and have always found myself on the market for new hair products time and time again as no …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2016

This stuff really is worth the hype! I had tried other makeup setting sprays in the past and had never been satisfied like I am with this one. I have combo/oily skin and break out pretty easily, and this spray was able to meet all of my needs. It didn't break me out at all like some other sprays had, and it truly keeps my makeup in place all day long without being too rich or over drying …Read more

Highlighters - The Body Shop - Shimmer Waves in Blush

Oct/05/2015

This product really is decent, it's just not jaw-droppingly amazing. The price isn't bad and it does last FOREVER (I've been using mine on and off for about 5 months and you can't even tell), but the results are meh. It's not super glittery, but it's not very dewey looking either. It's somewhere right in the middle between crap and good. The light pink shade …Read more

Palettes - Maybelline New York - The Blushed Nudes Eye Shadow Palette

3.0

Oct/05/2015

I was a pretty let down by this palette :(
While the color selection is GORGEOUS (warm and cool tones, pretty cranberry shades, beautiful highlight shades) I have found that these shadows are a pain in the butt to blend! I feel as if I have to spend an extra ten minutes just trying to blend them out every time I use them, which not only looks mediocre but it also takes a ton of time! There …

Gels/ Soaps - The Body Shop - Tea Tree Body Wash

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/05/2015

This seems to be the only product that actually helps control the breakouts I get on my chest/shoulders area. I still get the occasional patch of small bumps, but certainly nothing like it used to be. I personally don't mind the smell, although I see how it can be a little much for someone who is not used to tea tree oil. It can be a touch drying, so make sure to follow up with a moisturizer …Read more

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Tea Tree Cool and Creamy Wash

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/17/2015

I'm a Body Shop junkie and former assistant manager, so I of course have tried almost every single product in the store. This started out amazing. It started to calm my clogged pores and redness, and was not drying at all like some of the other tea tree products, but my opinion of the product began to change after about a week. My skin started to get oilier than usual, and my clogged pores …Read more
