Jul/12/2018

I've bought a few tubes of this already, for various reasons which I'll list below. As a whole it has some serious shortcomings that keep me looking to replace it while looking for something that ticks the same boxes.

The good: The brush, the lengthening/definition, the lack of irritation.
The bad: Lack of volume (no drama, every day type mascara), the completely …

I have this in the shade Ivory, and for reference I'm shade L1 to L2 in the Covergirl TruBlend foundation. It's a good shade match, a little bit yellow which works for me to cancel out the purple-ish under my eyes.

Honestly, I love this concealer but I HAVE to apply it with a brush. The sponge is such a freaking pain I'm going to rip it off and just twist out the product …

I bought this at the dollar store, but I'm still wishing I had saved the few dollars it cost me. This polish does everything I hate, and it's unfortunate because the color really is nice. It seems to dry on everything EXCEPT my nails, sticking like crazy glue to my skin, cuticles, and drying near instantly on the neck of the bottle/the brush as you try to work with it.

I've finally come to the conclusion that this just doesn't work for me. I rarely wear foundation and I'm coming to a point where I'd much rather spend some extra money on a bottle of foundation that will really work with my skin, as well as last longer, rather than pay less and fight with my makeup to make it look good. I'll break down my thoughts below …Read more

Mascara - essence - Get Big Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara

May/09/2018

Unfortunately this was a bust for me. I'll break down the whys below.

Pros:
- Waterproof. So waterproof and stubborn it isn't possible to take this all off without losing lashes, and even with an oil I have raccoon eyes the next day. It's a bit over the top, but if you work at a pool, sweat heavily, swim a lot, or generally need something that won't budge …

I love this, and for the price I can't see myself being bothered to try other options. I have the Blondy Brows shade. I use it either on it's own or on top of a brow pencil (currently using up BH cosmetics automatic eyebrow pencil, which I'm not a fan of). It keeps my brows in place and helps fill them out while still looking natural. I really just wish it contained more product …Read more

UPDATE: 07/12/2018

After using this more, and now that the weather has warmed up I have a few updated thoughts.

I'm not using this as a daily sunscreen, the main reason being that I'm just not sweating enough to really need a waterproof sunscreen on a daily basis. I work in an office at a desk job, so my sunscreen needs are fairly basic on a daily basis. Because …

I definitely liked the product, I ordered a sample online when BeneFit was giving them out. I got the lightest shade, I'm fair skinned with pink/neutral undertones and freckles. The color was a little cool toned for me, but using it was absolutely effortless. It also stays extremely well throughout the day with me poking and prodding at my eyebrows absentmindedly during the day.

Concealers - RIMMEL - Hide the Blemish Concealer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/24/2017

I had this way back when all I wore was concealer to hide some acne and I could not stand it. The formula felt greasy, the coverage was minimal, and it just made my acne look worse by caking up in dry spots and letting redness show through. I think I used about half the tube before I quit wearing makeup altogether for about a year and a half, then threw it out. I no longer use stick concealers …Read more

I have the colors "Left Me Jaded" and "I'm So Bord-eaux". I haven't yet tried the Sally Hansen gel polishes to compare to them.

Right off the bat, I really like these gel polishes. I'm So Bord-eaux is slightly more transparent, and needs two thicker, or three thinner coats to make it fully opaque. It's a deep purple red, very vampy.
Left Me …
