Highlighters - Kevyn Aucoin - Neo Highlighter - Sahara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

The problem with some of these Kevyn Aucoin products is that the product names are actually fairly misleading. Similar to the brand's "Neo-Setting Powder" (which isn't a setting powder at all, but rather a highlighter), this "Neo-Highlighter" really doesn't seem to perform at all like a highlighter, but it performs outstandingly as a bronzer which can be …Read more

Pressed Powders - Kevyn Aucoin - The Neo-Setting Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This is a hard one to come up with an appropriate number of "lippies" for a rating. Triplexm's review below from 2017 is exceedingly accurate on this product. While I didn't read that prior to purchasing this Kevyn Aucoin Setting Powder from TJ Maxx ($18USD), she is 100% correct that in no way, shape or form is this a "setting powder". I would say that even the …Read more

Fragrances - Aquolina - Pink Sugar Eau de Toilette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Feel like they changed the formula on this just a tad. I remember the small free trial samples I used to get from Sephora smelling much more sugary on my skin, whereas now it smells more powdery with a fainter hint of sugar. Bought on a whim via TJ Maxx, it's still enjoyable for when the mood to mentally transport myself back to my teenage girly self takes over. I almost exclusively wear …Read more

Lipstick - Lime Crime - Plushies Liquid Lipstick

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

While I enjoy the Velvetine formula and the Diamond Crusher is fun for a very blinged-out look, the Plushies formula is not for me. It's a very thin formula and feels quite oily - it slips and slides its way right off my lips very quickly. Packaging a little too cutesy for my tastes, but I'm not their target demographic, so whatevs. But to me, it's the formula that counts and …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Do not get the hype over this mascara at all. However, full transparency...bought this at Marshall's where they had just stocked the shelves with a number of these waterproof versions branded "Better Than Love" (apparently, Too Faced uses this name on the packaging in Middle Eastern countries where you can't brand something with the word 'sex').

Both the …

Palettes - Stila - Perfect Me Perfect Hue

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Purchased for $17 at Marshalls but had seen online through Stila for $23 on clearance. Got this in Light/Medium. Stila quality is there - good pigmentation, creamy and blends easily (tap off the excess before applying darker shadows) for both the blushes and the shadows. The darkest shade is labeled for use as a liner - if applied dry w/ smudger brush, fades pretty quick, but applied wet with …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Neutrogena - Rapid Tone Repair Dark Spot Corrector

1.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

The only reason this dark spot corrector gets 1 star is the pump attached to the tube to dispense product. As for the product itself, completely useless. After daily use for a number of weeks specifically targeting 2 small areas on face, it's made zero difference - looks exactly the same as before. I have sensitive skin and although there is a fragrance to this product and it does cause …Read more

Eye Shadow - Makeup Revolution - New-trals vs. Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

Having had some limited exposure to Makeup Revolution products (none including eyeshadow), I picked up this eyeshadow palette at Marshall's for just $4.99 cautiously preparing myself for the possibility of some under-performing shadows or shadows with a lot of fall-out or muddy pigmentation. I had seen one of the Emily Noelle palettes from MUR get absolutely raked over the coals and …Read more

Highlighters - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Amrezy Highlighter

1.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

It may look beautiful in the case with that rippled texture and the color, but this just goes on way too sparkly/glittery for me which is not what I expected from the photographs. I have other Anastasia products that I absolutely love - many which I got for a fraction of the price at Marshalls and TJ Maxx, but I paid full price at Sephora for this Amrezy highlighter which really is just a total …Read more

Lips - Physicians Formula - The Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2018

This is a good drugstore liquid lipstick that comes close to the Smashbox Always On but is just a third of the price (frequent sales make them even cheaper). Applicator is very similar to Smashbox as well. Product glides on smoothly, stays put without being super drying. I purchased in Raisin' Immunity, Vitamin Beet and Fight the Free Red-icals - all 3 fall under the bold end of the …Read more
