Mascara - REVLON - Lash Potion by Grow Luscious [DISCONTINUED]

I've been using high end mascaras for a good while now and am now trying some drugstore ones, thinking it would be a good place to save some money. Perhaps I've been spoiled by Lancôme and Guerlain for too long but this one just does not compare in making my lashes longer department. I really felt like my lashes looked way shorter and thinner than normal when wearing this stuff. I feel …Read more

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Moisturizing Lotion - Normal to Dry Skin

Aug/30/2013

I'm on my third bottle of this now. I finally realized my scented body lotions were just not doing a good job hydrating my skin so I decided to try this. I love this product, after a shower it goes on really well and never feels heavy or greasy. It turns out I prefer not to use scented body lotions anyhow - there is no interference with my perfume or anything. I have now used this throughout …Read more

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

Aug/30/2013

I REALLY like this product. It is the only CC (or BB for that matter) cream that has really blown me away. I literally wore this and only this on my face for a whole day and felt like I had some terrific skin going on. LOVED it. This is a very elegantly formulated cream that just wears beautiful and covers imperfections well. For me it wore well with absolutely no powder or anything over it. For …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Almay - Smart Shade Perfect & Correct Primer

Aug/30/2013

Hmm, this is the second day I've worn this and both days I noticed a bad smell when I put it on. It lingered throughout the morning and was bad enough to be unacceptable. No primer should smell as this one did, so I'm not sure if I had a bad batch or old stuff or what. Performance wise, I do feel that this lasted well throughout the day. I paired it with Almay Smart Shade foundation …Read more

I picked this up at Sephora, the tube version which I strongly prefer to a tin. I have been using this morning and night and really, really like it. I am always looking for great products for lips because mine are very prone to dryness, cracking and peeling. I honestly didn't mind the price because I have spent more on lip products in the past. To me this works better than Aquaphor or …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Professional Makeup Eyebrow Shaper

This did not hold my eyebrows in place! I thought it would be great - I love the pencil form so I can avoid placing my own fingers in wax and getting wax smeared all around my eyebrow areas. But since this wax didn't hold, it is a waste. Will not repurchase.

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Perfectly Real Makeup

Mar/22/2013

I tried this because in hopes it would be good for an natural everyday, non-irritating foundation. However, it did not work out for me. I found it very drying. As soon as I applied it, I could see a very powdery finish on my skin and especially my pores. It really accentuated the bad parts of my skin and made my face feel very dry. No matter how much water or fixing spray I used, the finish would …Read more

Wow, how have I not ever seen this stuff until recently??? I was wandering in Walmart and found it and figured I'd give it a go since it is cheap. When I got home I stuck it on my hair (dry hair) and used way too much which resulted in a very greasy look. So lesson learned a VERY little bit goes a long way. The next time I used it after my shower on towel dried hair as a leave-in. I used …Read more

I said I would buy this product again, however if I find a duplicate that costs less of course I wouldn't. The price is high. That being said it is lasts me quite a while. Also remember to use a brush or Qtip to get the product out once you reach the very end of the tube - there is lots of product BELOW the packaging stick once it stops rolling up that is perfectly usuable if you just dig it …Read more

Foundations - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD High Definition Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2013

When I used this product I use it with all of the MUFE HD line - from primer to finishing powder. I don't hate this at all, it does give a nice finish and does a good job covering. I do like the way my face looks when I leave in the morning. My problem with this is later on in the day my face looks very bad. I catch a look of myself in a mirror and my skin looks so dull and flat. Its not …Read more
