Concealers - rms beauty - "Un" Cover-Up Foundation/Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

20 days ago

One of my HG products. I buy this in 11.
This has replaced all my foundations. I would never go back.
It is not meant to cover your entire face, just even out the problem spots - around your nose, under your eyes.
I use it with a Juice Beauty sunblock that has a slight tint to it and that is it for me.
Apply with your fingers.
It does not EVER settle in my pores. …

Loose Powders - rms beauty - Tinted "Un" Powder

5.0

20 days ago

I have this in 0-1, which is a light shade (I am NC20) and I wear the RMS uncover up in 11.
LOVE: it NEVER settles in my pores. No matter how bad my skin may be behaving or how haphazard my application may be, I never get home and realize I have a whole "what happened to Baby Jane" Bette Davis look going on.
If my skin is a real disaster zone, this really helps even things …

Lips - Vincent Longo - Cheek & Lip Stain

20 days ago

In NYC, they were running a sale on Vincent Longo at my local Duane Reade, and I bought My Sunshine, which looks really natural on my cheeks (NC20 with freckles, blue eyes, reddish brown hair) - I liked it so much, I went back and bought Baby Boo, which looks great on my lips and cheeks. I don't have much of a natural blush & I look a lot better with a little color on my lips .. so this …Read more

Eyeliner - Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

20 days ago

This has been a major game changer for me. I could never find an eyeliner that did not smudge, so I had pretty much given up on eyeliners - now and again, I would get fired up and buy something new, but always end up returning it because who wants to keep checking yourself in a hand mirror to make sure you don't have smudges under your eyes. The only eyeliners I used were some version of …Read more

Eyeliner - PAT MCGRATH LABS - PermaGel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil

I have deep set blue eyes and I LOVE the look of lining my waterline ... until it smudges.
So I have been on a mission to find an eyeliner that WILL NOT SMUDGE. EVER.
Unfortunately, this one smudges on me ...

I tried it on in the store. The color payoff is AMAZING. It applies like butter. Come on, it's Pat McGrath, I would hope that having taken so long to come …

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner

3.0

6 months ago

I really thought I had found a smudge proof eyeliner for my waterline, but it does eventually smudge on me.
I have deep-set eyes, and when I laugh or smile they turn into little crescents & I think that may be the issue..!
however, for most people, this will probably work.
It does have a good lasting power .. which is why I gave it 3 stars, though I certainly will not …

Cleansers - DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I love this stuff - and I have breakout prone skin that is prone to dryness in the winter - even eczema. It smells divine, does not irritate my skin ever, is the perfect amount of oil, and feels like it really gets my makeup off. It just makes me feel good. It's usually my first step, which I will follow with another wash with a mild cleanser - or a miceller water. The price is moderate …Read more

Toners - Biologique Recherche - Exfoliating Lotion P50

3.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I am so disappointed that this is not a miracle product for me- it is okay, but I have used exfoliants as good for less money. And I am a veteran of exfoliants: a lifetime user of Retin-A (and some stronger relations) someone who tolerates Fraxel pretty well, etc etc
And boy, does it smell bad: aggressively medicinal. To the point that my husband has complained. And he is usually pretty …

Moisturizers - Weleda - Skin Food

4.0

10 months ago

I love this stuff. It is so moisturizing. It smells amazing. It never irritates my skin. You can use it to add highlights or a dewy look to your face - it instantly makes you look better. It is also amazing on your skin.
The metal tube easily cracks on the side, however, so you need to be careful when you use it. I have had to "decant" the remainder of a tube into little …

Mascara - Isehan - Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl and Super Waterproof Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I am forever on the hunt for a mascara that NEVER smudges under my eyes.
This is not it.
I have deep set eyes and if I laugh a lot my eyes crinkle up into crescents, and this will be smudge central.
I also have long lashes that curl up, but they are blonde - I just want them to be darker so you can see them.
It is better than most, and smudging is minimal, but for this …
