I recently ran out of my usual day cream and wanted to switch to something unscented. I decided to try this because it’s one of few with a decent spf and got really good reviews on a bunch of sites, but unfortunately I don’t think it works for me. I don’t usually get cysts or whiteheads but as soon as I started using this I got a giant cyst, smaller cycts, white heads, and bumps, which only …Read more

It can be really hard to find an affordable foundation that doesn’t promise either a matte or luminous finish, so it can be tough when you have combination skin. After much research into the topic I settled on this one. The lightest shade looked way too pink for me so I figured I’d just get the second one ‘20 classic ivory’ and mix it with some white mixer (something I usually have to do at least …Read more

I use this on its own and not as a primer, I’m quite fond of it but I do find it’s a bit out of my normal price range. I like the formula and the spiky ended brush, I’ll definitely be washing it off when the tube is done to use for combing through lashes. I wish it came in a slightly lighter and more taupe shade however, since even this brown tends to be a bit too dark for my pale, blonde self to …Read more

This is probably one of my favorite affordable mascaras overall. I use the burgundy one, I’m quite pale so it just ends up looking almost black but I find it makes my eyes look more blue. I just wish it came in brown (not black brown, which I still find looks unnaturally dark on me) since sometimes the burgundy looks a bit weird with certain eyeshadow colors.

I got this powder in the lightest shade, it’s not bad but I think I’ll just spend the extra couple dollars next time and go back to physicians formula. I was hoping for something with fuller coverage since I sometimes like to just use powder to tone down my uneven skin tone instead of using actual foundation. For a powder the coverage is decent but it certainly won’t replace a liquid or cream …Read more

I figured I’d try this mascara since it had a brown shade, and actual brown (not black brown) mascaras are hard to find at the drugstore. I’m not a fan but it’s okay, I’d even go as far as to say it’s growing on me. The color (I bought ‘deep cocoa’) is what I’d consider a standard brown mascara shade. The wand is tapered with a slightly pointy end, which means it tends to get a buildup of product …Read more
