As MUCH as I hate to say it, this is worth the price. I held off on buying this mirror for more than a year because of how much it is; but I finally caved (thanks to the flex plan on HSN). I have the 5x magnification and it has really changed and improved my makeup application. I have finally been able to do a winged liner, the bane of my makeup existence. This mirror shows things you never would …Read more

I bought this and the Foreo Luna Mini at the same time. I ended up returning the Foreo because after using it for about 2-2.5 weeks I found myself breaking out; which at my age and for me personally is a rarity. However using the Sephora pad got my face just as clean with no breakouts. This tool is better than my bare hands, but not as harsh as a vibrating cleaner, and to me that's a win …Read more

Uuuuugh ANOTHER too-damn-expensive-for-what-it-is product (looking at you Beauty Blender cleansing bar) that actually works. They're so soft, they don't leave fuzzies on my face, they don't tear, aaaand Sephora now has free flash shipping available to er'body for $10.00 a year. I've already ordered 2 more packages... *side eyeing myself*. Oh...I use 5 a day, 1 front/back …Read more

I almost hate to write this review because this product is simply great, but the price is simply ridiculous for what it is and it is the only thing that keeps me from purchasing it. I rec'd this as a 100pt Sephora perk. It gets my sponges and brushes cleaner faster than Dawn. I don't have to spend a ridiculous amount of time rinsing out the soap like I do when I use Dawn ( I use barely …Read more

Ok so here are my thoughts on the Simple (brand) Micellar Cleasing Water

I got mine from Target for 6.99. FYI I don't have anything else to compare it with because this is my first time using this type of product.
It doesn't remove my mu enough to where my skin feels really clean, even after using 3 cotton pads on both sides. For the record I wear foundation, eyeshadow …

Me:NW45ish
Ok, the packaging is gorgeous, the color is really pretty, and it's not drying on my lips (3 stars) Because this lipstick is sooooo slippery upon application I use a lipliner. The trick to this lipstick is it needs to set, afterwhich I pat it with my finger to a smoother finish, THEN it becomes tolerable. But really for $35, it needs to be more than "tolerable" and …

Just. freakin'. gorgeous. As usual LORAC quality and blendibility is on point. I actually plan my OOTD around this palette. What is there to say that hasn't already been said. OH! I did buy the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette and while I do enjoy it, LORAC knocked it outta the park. Are there Revealed 2 shade dupes, yep, but IMHO Lorac has that something extra that …

Ok just NO! Did absolutely nothing for me and actually made my lips just a tad bit dryer so I had to keep re-applying. I tossed it. The packaging is super cute though, but that's not what's going on my lips.

Nov/07/2014

Ok so I got this as a deluxe sample in a Sephora GWP set.....and I love it! The only reason I didn't give it 5 lippies is because of the staying power. It's called "Almost Lipstick" but this is 'straight up lip balm'. It's on the same level as a Revlon Lip Butter (I have 3 of those), consistency wise, but I think the RLB's have more pigmentation. Having …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

fromKica

Oct/23/2014

My issue with this product is no matter what nail polish I use under it, it causes tip shrinkage and early chipping. Does it dry fast, yes, but the shrinkage and pre-mature chipping are a deal breaker. When I use my Essie No Chip Ahead (I'm not affiliated with the Essie company) top coat, which is not a dry fast topcoat, I get none of those issues. Therefore I'll wait the extra few …Read more
