Sunscreen - Volition Beauty - Prismatic Luminizing Shield

4.0

1 month ago

I purchased this product when it launched and have faithfully purchased a bottle each time it runs out. It is a great summertime SPF. It's lightweight, absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any white cast. Something I love about it is that it never pulls moisture from my skin and so it never leaves my skin feeling uncomfortable and tight. It works with all of my skin care and the different …Read more

Foundations - La Mer - The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF 20

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

It's been a long time since I have been this impressed with a foundation. I have normal to dry skin and I like foundation to look like skin. I don't want anyone asking me what kind of foundation I use. This is the ticket. It melds like a second skin and wears all day with no issues. It does not suck moisture from my face and it never causes my skin to feel uncomfortable or tight. I …Read more

Eye Shadow - Hourglass Cosmetics - Modernist Eyeshadow Palette

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/03/2018

So happy to see Hourglass do a way with the Modernist eyeshadow palettes. They were not Hourglass quality. Fallout, inconsistent pigment throughout the shade range (I bought 5 compacts at once), and some of the metallic shades burned my eyes causing pain and watering hours after removal. The experience was so bad, I am not going to jump into another Hourglass eyeshadow product for a while and …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Laura Mercier - Flawless Skin Eye Serum

Feb/20/2018

I've used this serum for years to keep my lids and under eye area tight, along with the inner corners of my eyes. I do not have dark circles so I cannot speak to the effectiveness of combatting them. But if you are looking for something to keep things tightened this is an excellent serum. I have experimented with other higher end, more expensive products, and I always go back to this eye …Read more

Lip Treatments - CHANEL - ROUGE COCO BAUME Hydrating Conditioning Lip Balm

4.0

Dec/15/2017

This is not an intensely moisturizing balm. It is more of a maintenance product, to be used on healthy lips. If your lips are chapped, peeling, and/or dehydrated, the formula is not strong enough to revive and repair. I like it as an alternative to lip color, worn daily on its own, or under a lip color as a light moisturizing prep. I have an issue with popular colorless lip moisturizers like …Read more

Foundations - CHANEL - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/30/2017

This foundation is better suited for a combo to oily skin type, and someone who can and does dedicate time every day to exfoliating. I did not care for the feel of it. It pulled every ounce of moisture from my normal skin, and the area around my mouth feels drawn the entire day when I wear it. It is not forgiving, meaning, if life happens and you didn’t exfoliate for a week, the formula will find …Read more

Powder - Cargo Cosmetics - HD Picture Perfect Pressed Powder

5.0

Oct/13/2017

This is an untapped gem that has been flying under the radar for years. It's a way to add additional coverage over an existing foundation, blot shine, set, and soften the look of pores. It does not travel around into lines or pores. It wears for a long time, and beautifully. The look is natural, and modern, but not completely matte. It leaves the skin looking alive, and allows light to move …Read more

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Urban Environment UV Protection Cream For Face and Body

5.0

Sep/26/2017

This product works best on fair skin, or anyone who desires to create a more porcelain appearance. It definitely has a brightening cast that would not be complementary to tan or darker skin tones. Because of its creamy consistency, it's not the best option for an oilier skin type. Dry and normal would be best, and maybe combination skin in the winter months. I am a combination skin and love …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2017

MAC Face and Body was once one of my favorite foundations. I bought it with the intention of only using it on my legs as a way to avoid wearing pantyhose and present beautiful, even toned skin from a stage. Sometime over the last 5 years it received a reformulation and I had to stop purchasing it. It lost the beautiful glow and real skin like translucency that made it so popular. What was left …Read more

Liquid - Merle Norman - Timeless Illuminating Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 30

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2017

This is a late game entry for Merle Norman to compete with the silicone based luminous formulas that have been around for years now like Nars Sheer Glow, and Revlon Photoready. The info states medium to full coverage. I do not agree this will give full coverage-even with multiple layers, but hits the medium coverage mark beautifully. The finish is a lively and luminous one and it wears well on a …Read more
