Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Sugar Rush Beach Cheeks Cream Blush

4.0

5 months ago

This is the cutest cream blush in a shell compact from Tarte's Sugar Rush line. It retails for $15. I have the shade Beaches & Cream and it's just the most perfect peachy pink flush of color and blends really nicely. I usually apply it with a dense, short bristled Ecotools brush and sort of buff it in. Makes me look fresh and pretty. You can also apply with fingers, and the …Read more

Pressed Powders - Soap & Glory - Kick Ass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I have many powders, but lately I have been unsatisfied with most of them. Nothing seems to keep my shine at bay, and I don't even have very oily skin. Sometimes I just don't want to be quite as dewy as my foundation makes me. I had been rotating through all the powders I own, giving each one a week or so, and was pretty unhappy until I started using this one. It's so good!! …Read more

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Outlast Active 24 HR Foundation SPF 20

5.0

I did not expect to, but I absolutely LOVE this foundation! I've been interested in Covergirl since they went cruelty-free, and also have been looking for a non-Instagram-full-coverage foundation, as they look great in photos but SO fake and cakey in real life. I've also been taking really good care of my skin (thanks to K-beauty) so I don't need as much coverage. This stuff is …Read more

Styling Products - Love Beauty and Planet - Lavender & Argan Natural Oils Infusion

2.0

5 months ago

This is a lightweight, thin oil that smells really good, but I don't think it does anything good for my hair. I have curly hair, and while it seemed to control frizz, it made my hair look stringy and didn't allow it to clump into defined curls and waves. I used it as a before shampoo treatment, but I didn't really like it that way either. It's a shame since the ingredients …Read more

Palettes - BH Cosmetics - Desert Oasis Palette

I think this is my favorite palette! I decluttered or depotted all my other ones, including MAC, Too Faced, and a few others. This one is just so, so good. I can actually use this on my whole face: the orangey color is a pretty blush and the large brown pan is a decent bronzer when applied with a light hand. Shimmers are my favorite and these are fantastic! If this color scheme appeals to …Read more

Moisturizers - VICHY - Laboratories IDEALIA Night Cream

3.0

5 months ago

Initially upon application, this cream reminds me of the Shiseido gel-cream in the pale blue jar. It's lightweight in texture and feels hydrating and gel-like. It does have a scent, as many luxury moisturizers do. The jar is beautiful, and the pale pink color of the product is appealing. It's appropriate that this cream is for nighttime, because I don't believe that makeup …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Sephora Collection - Bright Future Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 25

3.0

This product has been on sale at Sephora for awhile now. I’m not sure if it’s being discontinued. Anyway, this is like a tinted moisturizer but it has decent medium coverage. I find it a bit too dewy for me and it oxidizes a bit over the course of the day, but it’s not terrible. But I like a more matte look so it didn’t really work for me.

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

4.0

I bought this to replace my Holy Snails Shark Sauce, which was my intro to Niacinamide. I really like it, it seems just as good, much cheaper, higher concentration, and I have had no ill effects. I apply this nightly after my double cleanse, chemical exfo (2x per week,) essence, and before my moistuizer (usually a sleeping mask) and eye cream. Its a little bit sticky, but as I layer it with …Read more

Lip Gloss - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer - Fenty Glow

3.0

I thought this gloss was just okay. I don't see why people are raving over this. It's a basic gloss in a basic color. I think the doefoot is too large and the gloss is a bit thick and feels goopy. I'm glad I got the mini size of this because I would not buy the full size. I do like the packaging though. But I have other glosses I like much better than this.

Eye Shadow - Glossier - Lidstar

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

As you probably know if you are reading this, Glossier products are for a 'no-makeup makeup' look, so expecting bold pigment and saturated color will only lead to disappointment. I'm over 40, but lately I've been heading towards a minimalist makeup approach and application, so even though I am not Glossier's target demographic, the line appeals to me. In my third order …Read more
