Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/21/2018

Got this as a sample, and bought some before I realized that it didn't do a thing for me. It's not as hydrating as I'd like. It's a gel, not creamy. No longlatsing effect on hydration at all. No wonder it doesn't moisturize! It makes things you layer over it runny, so not good for daytime use. Certainly no help with puffy eyes or under eye circles. However I am not sure …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Deciem - The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/15/2018

I have used this several times with no change in the puffiness under my eye. As one reviewer thankfully mentioned, perhaps my eyes are not puffy for environmental reasons, which on others, this seems to help. Perhaps my puffy eyes are my hypothyroidism again, or genetic. Then nothing topical will alter it. So I don't blame this for not working for me. I think perhaps The Ordinary could put a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion

It has changed my skin, evening out the discoloration. Nothing beats retinol! The Ordinary sells Retinol 2%. That has made the most impact on my skin feeling smoother, and definitely and quickly decreasing freckles, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation. It's done this in two weeks, but I am able to use it nightly. Can't recommend enough! The bottle with the dropper works great. Looks …Read more

I've repurchased this. The price is great, but only lasts 2 months, so factor that in to the cost. This is levels my skin feeling smooth, not tight, but very dry and matte. Of course I use moisturizing products after, so no biggie. It has changed my skin, evening out the discoloration. However nothing beats retinol! The Ordinary sells Retinol 2%.

Foundations - NARS Cosmetics - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/15/2018

This was sold to me as a better match to my skin color than Born This Way by Too Faced, which was my usual for a while. It looked like it soaked in to my skin, and indeed did look like skin to me. However the coverage was not quite enough. That sent me on a long trip through available foundations (which I have reviewed here). It is buildable, so I can't really fault Nars. However, at this …Read more

Foundations - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2017

This is the best matte foundation anywhere. It comes in the celebrated 40 shades, and true to form I can actually wear two or three of them easily. It's very pigmented, is a very matte finish (which I personally am not a fan of). But if you add a shimmery blush and highlighter, or better yet mix in some of those custom enhancer drops like from Cover Fx, it really glows! What I love best is …Read more

Dec/11/2017

I've just bought the second of these illuminating drops, mix with your foundation, just a little to get a soft glow all over. You'll never need highliter again! Of course you have to add a little definition to it, but it's the best mix in I've tried. Better than any other highlighter, it brightens up your entire face, leaving a subtle glow over all your face. It's totally …Read more

Liquid - COVER FX - Custom Cover Drops

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/03/2017

This is an extremely versatile product. I have mixed it in my eye cream to make concealer, which works nicely. I've also mixed this with my light moisturizer for sheer coverage. It makes my foundation even fuller coverage. This results in two things. 1) the finish is porcelain smooth. 2) my foundation covers up under eye circles preventing the need to even mix it with my eye cream. Also …Read more

Lipstick - Kat Von D - Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Bauhau5 (formally Mau5)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/03/2017

This liquid lipstick is perfect. It comes in many, many (42) shades, including many, many nudes. This color Bauhau5 is a jolt of raspberry. It's a hot pink with a blue undertone, so it suggests purple, but is not purple. Some might call it "magenta".

It's long lasting, stays put, and looks fabulous, just like your lips happen to be another color. The finish is …

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/25/2017

This is clumpy mascara! It gives no added length either. And it's very flaky. I get that raccoon eye thing every time I use it. It's also so wet that it holds me up in the am waiting for it to dry.despite the flakiness, when I want to get it off it seems to bring my lashes with it. I don't like it, and for $24 I should like it!
