Lip Gloss - Urban Decay - Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss

2.0

2 months ago

Have had my eye on this since seeing social media blow up with it and I’m disappointed to say - overhyped. This lip gloss is $20, feels gloppy and uncomfortable on the lips, and doesn’t last any longer than other glosses I use. My Milani lip gloss produces more shine with a thinner consistency and gives the same tingle as this.

I would not recommend this product especially at the higher …

Self Tanners - Unlisted Brand - Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam - Dark

5.0

This tanner works for me better than my “Loving Tan” or “St. Tropez”. It applies evenly, gives me the best color, and if I apply on Sunday - it lasts the work week for me. Longer you leave it on, better it develops!

I wish I had more to write on this, but it works the best on my skin. I can’t say more than that!

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Licorice

Maybe I got a bad bottle (based on other killer reviews), but this chips on me by day 2 (sometimes even the same day depending what I’m doing/if I do my nails in the AM). It also gets gloopy by the third or fourth use. Really not a great quality formula for me.

I switched over to OPI “Black Onyx” and had better luck. Yes, it costs slightly more; however, my manicure will last me the …

Moisturizers - Perricone MD - High Potency Classics Hyaluronic Intensive Moisturizer

3.0

3 months ago

This is an average moisturizer for me so at the price point - I cannot personally recommend it. It has Neutrogena Hydro Boost vibes, but I do think Perricone nourishes the skin better (but not enough for me to justify price) and doesn’t have scent nor seems to be as aggravating to people’s skin. Personally, I like the Neutrogena as my morning moisturizer and because I have never had a negative …Read more

Loose Powders - Lancôme - Long Time No Shine Loose Setting Powder

3 months ago

Even though this received 3 out of 5 from me, I want to preface by saying this is a great product and I don’t regret buying it!

That said - I figure out favorites/scoring by placing the high end product against my favorite drugstore product (Coty Airspun). I have to say both sides look very similar after application (Lancôme is slightly smoother than the Coty) and when I blot throughout …

Treatments (Face) - Sunday Riley - A+ High Dose Retinoid Serum

5.0

3 months ago

I received this as a sample and used it every night for about two weeks (that’s how long the sample lasted) and I’m hooked. I had been using a different retinol before this one and didn’t get the hype behind retinols because I saw zero difference in my skin. But this changed my mind!

My texture improved and my tone became more even. My skin was glowing, darker spots fading, and I can …

Self Tanners - Loving Tan - Loving Tan 2 HR Express Dark Self Tanning Mousse

2.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Didn’t have the best experience with this tanner because of application and length of wear. I’ve used a fair number of self-tanners and this one I had issues with streaking and grabbing in certain spots looking blotchy during application. I know sometimes people will be quick to say did you do this, this, and this? And yes, I did everything from exfoliate to moisturize. I went through an entire …Read more

Highlighters - wet n wild - MegaGlo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighter

I was about to hop on here to rip this product apart. Every time I applied it with my sponge (both under powder and over powder), it would make product lift up/gather. However, I did a Hail Mary and tried with my finger - it worked. It lost a lippie because I don’t like it being finicky depending on the tool, but it looks really nice on the skin once you work it out with your finger. I was …Read more

I have a lot of skin products where I go wow and see results. Unfortunately, I did not have that with this product. I used the entire bottle and saw (maybe) a .001% improvement?

My skin definitely felt dryer and tighter so I know it was doing something, but in regards to reduction of fine lines (no) and brightening/discoloration (not really, but maybe slightly?). Honestly, using this …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Liquid Foundation

Depending on skin type, texture, and PH different foundations will do different things for people. I always considered my skin to be finicky and don’t have luck with most foundations, but this product was amazing for me.

I used one pump that covered my whole face, it had a natural finish, and it kept up with my oils so my skin was looking great by the end of the day. My ultimate holy …
