You win, Clinique. After all my shopping binges on the fanciest brands, over the years, this is still the very best cake liner I’ve ever tried. The Muted Brown color looks so warm in the pan, yet it somehow goes on in the most flattering color, that almost appears to come from within (ie very natural). It stays on and is super easy to apply, too. Lastly, it doesn’t irritate my eyes. Some …Read more

FINALLY the perfect lip stain & color! This review is for the color “Like.” I’m a light spring (lightest cool skin/eyes, warm hair), for reference. Since I started wearing makeup (much younger than most, since I’m translucent without it), I’ve been searching for the lip tint that I see in period films. You know, the one that’s supposed to look as if you’re not wearing any makeup. Lip tints …Read more

This mascara is pretty incredible, but I fear it may have been discontinued-? Not sure, but that’s pretty typical of my (apparently esoteric) favorite products.

Brush: just like IT Tightline= awesome!!!
Formula: similar to Kiss Me (tube mascara), but oddly THICK. Goes on like three coats, with one coat.
Color: SUPER BLACK (similar to Loreal’s Blackest Black)
Sensitivity: I’m …

I’m sitting here with dramatic black mascara streaks under my eyes, akin to what you’d get if you dipped your face in water and batted your lashes repeatedly. I thought I’d review this mascara so I don’t forget and accidentally buy this again!

The good:
Great brush, thin/almost tightline (wish there were more thin “tightline” brushes on the market);
Buildable …

I FINALLY FOUND IT. I have been searching for an under eye concealer that won't crease or draw attention to my imperfections for YEARS. Not only did I find one, it also has SUNSCREEN IN IT! This product is like magic; it is that good. I put a bit on my finger to apply and then use my IT airbrush 103 to blend. It makes my skin look better, yet looks like I am not wearing concealer, which is …Read more

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Tazorac

If I had to name ONE product that I thought was most beneficial to my skin, this would be it (for acne and wrinkles/elasticity/aging/texture, etc.). If I use it under my eyes, I can see a dramatic improvement in the wrinkles/tightness, and it makes my skin look SO MUCH BETTER, in every way. Unfortunately, despite the miracle it works under my eyes, I am going to stop using it so close to my …Read more

I am tempted to deduct one lippie for lack of color selection. I would love to see it in grey or blue. Other than that, this is a great product. I have relied on this for years, as my "go to" natural mascara.

The wand is pretty easy to work with, although I would also love if they would carry a version with a super thin mascara wand. Of course, that really goes for ALL …

I like this, but cannot use it on my chin or it breaks me out. I suspect it has something to do with triggering hormonal acne, so I skip my chin and use it everywhere else. I also don't think it is my imagination bc every single breakout has corresponded with me using this on my chin. Almost like I say, "well, I have not broken out in awhile, I guess I will try TNS..." and, bam, I …Read more

Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

This is for the "BLONDE" color. I have white blonde brows, yet I detest any sort of obvious brow makeup. To solve this dilemma, I dye my brows with Just for Men (Dark Blonde); however, I still need to even them out with some makeup, especially when I have not dyed them for awhile. I also have a small scar through one brow, so my brows need to be thickened in that area, to cover the …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Demodex Natural Facial Cleanser/Wash

This cleanser is pretty special. All adults have (invisible) Demodex mites on their face. In some people, it causes issues (redness, irritation, acne, blepharitis, etc.).

I have rosacea, without the acne (Type I-redness only). Demodex mites are implicated in rosacea, although it is unclear whether they are responsible for Type I (redness only). The theory is that the mites die on your …
