I have the white mixer, and it is a LIFESAVER if you're like me and don't live close enough to Sephora to get foundation samples and have to guess your shade. I dot it on my face with my liquid foundation (currently using and loving Smashbox Studio Skin 15-Hour in shade 2.1), do a rough blend with a finger to mix the colors, and then buff with a Sigma F80. The end result looks so …Read more

Liquid - Smashbox - Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

I wasn't sure about this foundation when I first got it -- I ordered it blindly from Sephora, in shade 2.1 for my neutral NW20 skin. Comes in a nice glass bottle with a pump and a secure lid. Feels a bit sticky and thick out of the bottle. I use 2.5 pumps, dot it around my face, and then add the NYX white mixer, also dotted on -- shade 2.1 is a really good match for me, but it's just …Read more

Big NOPE on this one -- I got a small sample tube in a Sephora order and I ended up throwing it away in a hotel room while on a short getaway. The fragrance in this product is very heavy (especially for a skincare item), and the scent burned my eyes something fierce. It did take my makeup off and the solid form is convenient for travel if you are carry-on only, but I can't handle anything …Read more

I like this foundation a lot, but I think it's too expensive and it also doesn't last on my skin very well...it just doesn't adhere to it. I ordered the mini-size from Sephora, which is $42 for just 0.6 oz of product. For an every day look, I use 2 pumps and dot it on my face, and then blend/buff with my Sigma F80 brush (I don't own a makeup sponge, so I can't speak to …Read more

Nope, not for me. I got a mini-size with a Sephora order and was excited to try it, but after a week of use, I tossed it. It clumps right up on my lashes, which I HATE -- it held the curl a little bit but I can't deal with clumps. It also left little tiny bits of mascara on my lashes and didn't comb through nicely, another pet peeve. My lashes looked spidery and stiff after …Read more

I saw these online somewhere (maybe Ulta) and was intrigued so I picked one up at Walgreen's -- I wanted the Wine shade but I forgot to check the tube and ended up with Naughty Mauve instead (which is fine). I like this product a lot, but I really hate the packaging -- the sponge tip applicator feels very fragile, and I'm probably going to end up breaking it off by accident at some …Read more

Lip Treatments - Mario Badescu - Lip Balm

This is not a terrible lip balm, but it's not my favorite. It's too sticky for my liking and thus doesn't play well with lipstick, so I only use it at night. I like the coconut scent/taste, the hygienic squeeze-tube packaging, and the price ($8) but I think there are much better balms out there. I will finish my tube but I won't repurchase.

I bought this after seeing some YouTuber talk about it (can't remember who...) and I was getting tired of using a pencil and a clear setting gel for my brows...one product and done, yes please. I got Soft Brown which works fine on my medium-brown full brows (my hair is dark brown), and it isn't sticky or gloppy. I do wipe the extra product off the end of the bristle ball though, which …Read more

Sunscreen - Australian Gold - Botanical Tinted Sunscreen Mineral Lotion SPF 50

3.0

4 months ago

I'll start by saying this is a good sunscreen, but it's just not for me -- my normal skin does not like it. It dried me out quite a bit, especially around the eye area, and it's impossible to remove without an oil-based cleanser -- micellar water is NOT strong enough. This product looks and feels like Benefit Pore-fessional out of the tube and has a similarly smoothing effect …Read more

I'm a sucker for a good lip treatment, so this went into my Sephora cart (despite the $23 price tag, UGH), and I could only stand to use it twice before I tossed it out -- it's basically super-thick, sweet-tasting goo that doesn't hydrate my lips or last. The packaging is atrocious as well: the metal tube is really hard to squeeze and the review pics on Sephora.com show it …Read more
