Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/08/2010

My skin is combination-oily. I usually have a few breakouts on my skin at any given time, and I have marks from past acne that are taking forever to fade. I need a full-coverage to cover the breakouts and the past acne marks. I decided to try this after watching several videos on YouTube in which Makeupbytiffanyd raves about this foundation. According to her, this foundation is perfect. She says …Read more

Toners - C.O. Bigelow - Dr. Galen Herbal Skin Tonic

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2010

OK so I know a lot of people say toners are a completely unnecessary step in a skincare regimen. I somewhat agree, after all a cleanser should work well enough to thoroughly cleanse the skin and then serums and creams can deposit treatment ingredients. And yet, I love toners! I just love how my skin feels after using them- so clean and fresh and tingly! I just enjoy them- so unnecessary or not I …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Madly

NARS has turned me into a blush addict! The fantastic quality of this and Orgasm has me wanting all the NARs blushes! I am an NW15 in MAC terms and Mont Blanc in NARS works pretty well and I am neutral to cool-toned. I selected Madly for use as a contour, bronzer shade. I don't know why NARS describes this as a seashell pink, when to me it looks like a slightly bronzed, brownish peachy …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Cubic [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/16/2010

I had been searching for a nude blush for a long time. I did not want one with too much peach or brown. I wanted the perfect complement of muted pink, peach and beige, and I finally found it in Cubic. I am Nw15 and this color is very subtle on my cheeks but that's exactly what I was looking for. When I told one MAC SA that I wanted a neutral blush she kept picking out colors that were very …Read more

Highlighters - Fresh - Twilight Freshface Glow

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2010

I was really excited for this product and I had been wanting it for a long time. Sadly, this didn't meet my expectations. Instead of a lit from within, glowy radiance, this barely showed up. Instead of a glow, all I got was a slightly shiny film that looked more like grease than anything else. I was really disappointed when I realized that the sample of Korres Rose cream I had been using …Read more

Loose Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2010

I had to go to five different MAC counters before I found this. It was sold out at the first four I tried and I can see why. This powder is perfect. It is white in color but once applied to the skin it doesn't leave a white cast at all. I am NW15 and I don't need to look any paler, and I don't with this powder. It also leaves my face perfectly balanced. It banishes unsightly oil …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Redness Soothing Facial Wash gel

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2010

This a fairly gentle cleanser in that I didn't experience any dryness or tightness after washing. Unfortunately, I didn't experience any reduction in redness or breakouts either. I have a lot of surface redness and I usually have about three or four pimples on my face at any given time. This product did not do anything to rectify either of those issues. I think it is just a basic …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Powerpoint - So There Jade

Feb/16/2010

This is a beautiful aqua shade with a bit of a sheen. It is creamy but doesn't smudge and it has great lasting power. I love to wear it in my lower waterline as a pop of color with peach or beige eyeshadow on my lid and I think it is just beautiful. It lasts incredibly well in the lower water line. I haven't experienced any irritation with this liner. I will definitely repurchase this …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Kohl Power Eye liner in Sense of Style

Feb/16/2010

I love the shade of this eyeliner. I think it is unique. The color of the pencil itself looks like a slightly metallic deep navy blue with the very slightest hint of deep green. I was really hoping it would show up that way on my eyelids but it loses some of the color intensity once applied. It looks more like a faded black than anything else. I wish it looked more like the deep navy with just a …Read more

Moisturizers - Boscia - Oil Free Daily Hydration SPF 15

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2010

"Moisturizer" is a misnomer for this product. This did not provide any moisture to my skin whatsoever. My skin actually felt drier with this on than it did without it. I think Boscia should market this as an oil-controlling matte product, but not a moisturizer. I have combo skin, so some oiliness sometimes and some dryness sometimes. This left my skin really dry all over my face which …Read more
