Mascara - Pop Beauty - Smokey Lash Kapow!!!

4.0

Mar/05/2013

I got this in my Feb 2013 Ipsy bag. I was pretty happy with my other mascaras and this one is not super notable beyond any others, but I do like it.

This is definitely a lengthening mascara, but it does give some volume. You definitely need to wiggle the wand as you apply as it can make your lashes stick if you do not, but almost every mascara I have every used does that …

Blush - Stila - Love at First Blush Palette

4.0

Mar/05/2013

I got this on sale for about half the regular price and I had been looking for a pink blush (my every day go to is peach). I cannot see that I would have paid full price for it, but I am so glad I got it.

The packaging is simple, but nice, nothing to complain about or rave about there.

There are three colors: a light pink, a medium pink, and a dark pink, all of the colors …

Primer/ Corrector - Pixi - Flawless and Poreless Primer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/05/2013

I got this in my Ipsy Glam Bag and I was pretty excited because I had been wanting to try something by Pixi. I have combination skin, but it is fairly easy to deal with and I really do not have issues with my foundation. On the whole, it did not really do what I think it is marketed to do, but I did find a nice use for it which I will mention at the end. But first I want to talk about using it as …Read more

Moisturizers - Yes To - Yes To Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer

Dec/30/2012

This review is for the Daily Calming Moisturizer with SPF 30. I picked this up because I needed an SPF moisturizer and this was on my list to try.

I had seen some reviews complaining about it being too white, but I pumped a bit on my finger and streaked it on my cheek, then rubbed it in. Yes, I did have to massage it in, but it did fade into my skin. After that I removed it and tried …

Masks - My Beauty Diary - Royal Jelly Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/28/2012

I wanted to try this brand of masks and I picked this one because of I have a thing for royal jelly products.

I usually put the mask on for about 5 minutes, then take it off, squeeze the liquid out to rub on my face and neck and tap and massage it in with my finger tips.

I find the mask is definitely moisturizing and makes my skin feel quite soft.

The only …

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/28/2012

I have come to like this mascara those it does take some technique (only minor) to apply. It will make you look like you have fake lashes, so do not expect this to look real, but rather dramatic. I have the smaller size, not the full size.

The formula is somewhat thick, but creamy. The brush is different than a lot of mascaras in that it has tiny spikes instead of bristles and it has a …

Mascara - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Lash Extending Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2012

This is the best mascara I have ever used! I used to skip mascara because every time I tried to apply it, it ended up clumpy and uneven. I think a big part of it was that I just do not apply mascara well, but even so. Then one day for some reason I picked up the E.L.F. Lash Extending Mascara.

Since then I have stored away all of my other mascaras and I only use this one. It does not …

Pressed Powders - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2012

I had a bit of an emergency while out of town. I need a powder and had left mine at home. I have issues with powder as most of them tend to make me look ghosty. I am pale, but not a ghost. Anyway, I needed a powder to set my BB cream/tinted moisturizer and make it last longer so I was not constantly reapplying and to prevent creasing around my fine smile lines.

I bought the 011 shade …

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Sugarbomb

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2012

The way I came to buy this product is a bit odd I guess. I went into the store looking for a matte peach eyeshadow. Apparently that is not something that exists in any of the lines the store had. So the salesperson suggested that I might try a blush instead and showed me the Sugarbomb. I went back and forth between the Sugarbomb and a similar product. I ended up going with the Sugarbomb because …Read more

Cleansers - KOSE - Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2012

I have been using olive oil as my cleanser for some time but there were two things I did not like about it: 1) it left my skin oily and 2) I had to really work at it to get eye make-up off. So I decided to stick with the oil concept, but also went to the Japanese method and found this cleansing oil to be well recommended.

I love it! It takes everything off so far including waterproof …
