Somehow I ended up at the Bobbi Brown counter at Macy's last week and had a moment of insanity during which I purchased many skincare and makeup items! I love, love, love this lipstick shade. Works so nicely with my fair skin, brown/hazel eyes, and dark hair. Has a nice moist finish, which I prefer (not a fan of matte lips). Wear time is, sadly, not great but that is typical with most …Read more

I have been using this for a week, and so far I like it quite a bit. It has a rather tacky feel and can be difficult to spread but I watched an Emily Noel YT video in which she used one of those offset brushes with a dense brush head to sort of "stamp and spread." I have a similar brush from It Cosmetics that I have been using and that method seems to work pretty well. The finish is …Read more

I found out about this BB cream when I received a sample with an order from yesstyle.com (Korean seller of all kinds of stuff including skincare and makeup). It is a lightweight cream that comes in a tube with screw off cap. I ordered in shade #21 light beige. First, this shade (the lightest one) is a cool tan that is bit too dark on my pale/pink complexion. I tried mixing it with a …Read more

I have been trying to find a combination color correcting, moisturizing, high SPF product because I don't want to spend more than 5 minutes or so on my face when getting ready for work. This one in "light" has a pale pink tone that works well on my fair/cool/pink undertone complexion. I have some redness and melasma and my face looks smooth and even toned with this product. Not …Read more

This is a review of 11 products I have been trying out from the Eight Saints line. These products are rather expensive in the full size. I paid $10 for the sample kit (which kept showing up in my Facebook feed until I gave in and ordered it), and I think this line is well worth trying out!

I will list each product separately and give my opinion.

This review is for a little 4 piece Korean skincare set from the brand Soon Jung I got from yesstyle.com that includes this toner. I am 52 with sensitive combination skin. My skin always reacts negatively to seasonal changes and, right on schedule with the recent fall weather, I've been experiencing dryness, redness, and lots of peeling and flaking. This little collection of products did …Read more

I just received this in the bergamot variation from Scentbird yesterday and I think I'm in love. I could not stop smelling my wrist all evening. I generally do not tolerate perfumes well, but this does not give me a headache at all. It is rather expensive, but a really wonderful, fresh-yet-warm, subtle scent and I think I will be indulging myself in a full size!

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - British M Organics Annatto Hair Oil

fromKetrn

3 months ago

This is a thicker textured hair oil from the brand British M that does a wonderful job at making my hair look smooth and shiny after blow drying. I have fine, straight, shoulder length, dark hair that can look fuzzy and poufy when I really want a more smooth, sleek look. However, I have found that there is a fiiiiiiine line between "smooth and shiny" and "drowned rat" when …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - REVLON - One-Step Hair Dryer & Voluminizer

3 months ago

I have been using this for several months now, and for me this item fits squarely in the "good buy" category. I have fine, straight, shoulder length hair and this gives me a finished look in about 5-8 minutes. I watched some YT videos before I got mine, and I noticed that most people clipped off sections and worked on small areas at a time. I am always running late so do not always …Read more

Lip Treatments - Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick Sheer Tint SPF 15 - Plum

I like this quite a bit, but don't absolutely love it. The shade is a very pretty reddish plum without looking too brown, which makes it a good match for my pale/cool complexion. (Very much in the vein of Clinique Black Honey, if you are a fan of that one.) I really like the sheer, moist, low shine finish. It has a slippery, balmy texture that is comfortable to wear, but lasting power is …Read more
