After anxiously waiting for my online order to arrive, I was disappointed in this lipstick.

On the positive side, the packaging is lovely on my counter (although a bit cheap feeling). I actually like the shape of the bullet quite a bit. When applied per the instructions, I am able to get a crisp line and the staying power is fairly good. It feels okay on the lips, not overly …

I heard this was going to be discontinued!?? This powder is wonderful. This is supposed to be a dupe for the Hourglass powder (which I also own) and I like this BETTER. I use it on top of my blush as a last step and it blends in seamlessly! My cheek bones look lifted and my blush looks so much more natural with this on top. I love this as a highlighter. I own lots of highlighters and this …Read more

Foundations - Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free All-in-1 ABC Cushion Foundation SPF 50

I am not a fan of cushion packaging, but I LOVE this foundation. It gives a natural look with medium coverage. I just pat it on with the sponge provided and then lightly smooth out the application. This is so much nicer than many of the high end foundations that just sit in my makeup drawer. It also provides a high SPF and is a cruelty free brand. YAY

Loose Powders - By Terry - Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder

I hate to be the dissenter here, but for me this powder was just okay. The packaging is terrible (this powder goes everywhere) and the price is outrageous. The product itself is just VERY finally milled powder. I understand it has a teeny amount of hyaluronic acid added, but don't think that justifies the price tag (I believe I paid $60 for this).

Pressed Powders - Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Powder - Translucent

I have this in creamy natural and translucent. I am fair, and like the translucent for highlighting my cheekbones, forehead and down the center of my nose for a more matte looking, natural highlight. Then I strategically put a little 'glowy' highlighter lightly on top. I like a more subtle highlight and this combination really works for me.
One thing I have learned, is less is …

After a long search for a cruelty-free option,I found this! Easy, smooth application (my lids are beginning to slightly wrinkle), all day wear and the perfect 'black' color make this a keeper. My eyelids (and skin in general) are very sensitive, and this liner does not bother me at all.
I read someone had trouble with this 'drying' up after a couple months. I personally …

The perfect tinted moisturizer! This offers light coverage, sunscreen, and easy application. I use my fingers to apply and then just smooth out specific areas lightly with a brush if needed. The tube packaging makes it sanitary and easy to take traveling. At times, if I feel I need a bit more coverage, I apply a little powder foundation over specific areas. I wear the "light" on my …Read more

I have tried many eye primers, from high-end to drugstore. Milani is my absolute favorite. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. I find it applies smoothly and helps the look of my slightly discolored lids look brighter and more even. Eye shadows look more true and stay all day. Love this.

Love this powder!!!!!!! My search for the perfect finishing/blotting powder is over. I have used/tried many powders over the years; Rimmel Stay Matte, Mac Blot, Revlon, Nars, and Laura Mercier, among others. This powder makes my skin look almost flawless, and I haven't had any issues with caking. Best of all, Soap & Glory doesn't test on animals!

I saw several youtubers give glowing reviews of this 'unique' blush. It's okay, but given the price, I am totally underwhelmed. This is such a dupable blush---in color and quality. I actually prefer some of my pink drugstore blushes that aren't so powdery. This blush is easy to overdo, and on my fair skin, it can easily look very unnatural. Regret this purchase.
