Liquid - CLINIQUE - Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

I tried the Even Better foundation because of a great color match, but I didn’t like the staying power. I was excited to see this foundation in the same color name (Breeze) but the color isn’t the same as the EB foundation. It leans a lot more yellow. It lasts longer than EB, which is what I wanted, but it goes on very thick. You definitely feel like you’re wearing foundation. The wand like …Read more

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Even Better Makeup SPF 15

This foundation looks like skin, but I think that’s because it doesn’t do much so it’s really your skin that’s showing. It’s lightweight in feel and does very little to even skin tone. I applied two layers to only see redness still poking through. It feels like a tinted moisturizer, so I imagine those with oily skin would absolutely hate it. It also transfers like crazy and has no staying power …Read more

I color my hair every couple of months and needed a good conditioner that helped keep the color longer. I was using Redken Color Magnetics, but found that it dried my hair out, had a chemical smell, and my hair felt like straw to the touch. After smelling this conditioner (it smells like cotton candy—very sweet/sugary) I had to try it! It has prolonged my color, leaves my hair soft and as an …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Catrice - PRIME AND FINE Dewy Glow Finish Spray - Illuminating

5.0

I’m not one for primers or setting sprays as they just add more time to my routine and I’m always running late to something. However, after trying this the first time, I now make sure it’s incorporated as a primer. It has a slight floral scent. The nozzle gives a fine mist, no major droplets of product in one area. I’m not sure it really adds a dewy glow, but it does feel more moisturizing than …Read more

I got two colors—Silk Embellishment and Baby Doll. Both appeared in the tube as being pink toned, but on my lips SE applies as a very peachy salmon instead of the pale pink it looks in the tube and BD appeared as a pinky nude, but on my lips it’s a straight up beige, no hint of pink. Both colors are very unflattering so I was put off by that, but there’s the issue of the packaging. It has the …Read more

I bought Tea Rose and Blushing Nude, both of which are pinky nude colors with Tea Rose leaning more pink and Blushing Nude leaning more nude. They come in a tube with a V shaped wand applicator. There is quite a bit of product that comes on the applicator initially and I’ll have to use the tube to scrape some off before I apply it. The feel is a bit drying, but that’s to be expected with any …Read more

Polishes - essence - Across The Universe

The color is very pretty and unique—a silvery plum with green/gold shift. The bottle is smaller than say, OPI, which I like because I don’t feel product will go to waste as much as larger bottles. The brush is your typical flat kind, not too narrow or too wide. My biggest beef is the smell! Even hours after it’s dried, I can smell the chemical-y smell of nail polish. It definitely lingers and is …Read more

I had been recommended this brand when I was searching for a gel like, long lasting polish that didn’t require a LED light. Though the price is high ($10.50 US), I gave it a try and am so glad I did! All polishes have a built in base coat, though to seal the color, you need to purchase and apply the top coat separately. These really do last a week without chipping and the top coat gives great …Read more

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess Sculpted Volume Mascara

I’m on the fence with this mascara. I love how dark the black color comes out on my lashes and stays dark all day. The curved brush was the biggest selling point for me because noncurved wands always get mascara on my lids. The downsize is that the mascara doesn’t go on evenly. It’s possible my mascara was previously opened and exposed to air causing a change to the formula (it was the last one …Read more

My fave mascara so far! No clumping, separates lashes, adds lift and adds a little bit of length. The best part for me is the curved wand. I’m always getting mascara on my eyelid, but the curve of this wand prevents that. It’s expensive ($24 US), so I try to buy the mini version ($12) of it rather than the full size tube.
