Powder - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2017

I have the pressed version of this powder. I was looking for something a little less expensive to replace my Dior translucent makeup perfecting powder, and I'd heard this is the HG for so many people.

While the packaging is nice, feels very durable, and is easy to spot in a purse, that's about the only thing that impressed me. You have to be SO careful about how you apply …

Lip Liners - Unlisted Brand - Nudestix - Lip + Cheek Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2017

I bought the shade Whisper on a whim while searching for the perfect matte brown eyeshadow (found that as well in this line), and I am a fan! As a lipstick, the formula glides on easily, does not feather, and doesn't settle into cracks and lines as much as other lipsticks can do. I don't feel dried out at all, and the color is very nice on me (though it does tend to go a little purple …Read more

Liquid - Bliss - StayCation Long Wear

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2017

I don't know why, but I fought against loving this for so long. Bliss is harder and harder to get ahold of as they fade from Sephora and Ulta, so I think that made me nervous. I didn't want to find some great product and then never be able to get it anywhere, especially because I have such problematic skin (parched dry super sensitive skin with rosacea and random days of pouring oil) …Read more

Foundations - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2017

Maybe I just got the wrong color, but I couldn't enjoy much about this foundation at all. I'm W3 in the Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup, and I'm a huge fan of it. I bought this because I thought it was the same thing in compact form for travel. It's not. It's a different color, for one, and secondly, it takes FOREVER to get some coverage that isn't sunken into the …Read more

BB Cream - La Roche-Posay - Rosaliac CC Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2017

On the fence with this one. Pros: For a CC cream, Rosaliac has great coverage. Either that or the color works so well with my light to medium skin tone that I appear super even toned. I'm not quite sure which, but whatever, right? It even tones down the teleangiectasias on my chest, and those are really the worst. It also stays put and doesn't slide around my face, so I feel pretty …Read more

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2017

To be honest, this is the closest thing I've found to "holy grail" status. This foundation has its issues, but it also has some great points.

I have the world's dryest (sp?) skin, rosacea, sensitive skin, and areas of huge pores, as well as aging skin and a couple of areas that look like little pinholes in the skin. I'm sensitive to dimethicone, and I'm …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - The Super Sizer Fibers

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/13/2016

My Nyx Double Stack mascara already ran out (since you have to use so many coats for it to maximize volume and length), so I was looking for something cheap, but I really wanted another fiber mascara to try out. Loreal's fiber mascara made my eyes itch, and Maybelline's Illegal Lengths was not good black pigment OR good for volumizing. Cover Girl was the only one left to try (that I …Read more

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2016

I finally found my beauty match in Urban Decay Naked liquid foundation, but unfortunately, 1) my bottle went bad when it got left in the heat of summer when my air conditioning died, and 2) my skin is more pale than it used to be. Summer is no problem for UD, but none of their many shades were right for me in the winter.

Enter Nars Sheer Glow. Holy gorgeous, Batman! I would have …

Dry Shampoo - Clairol - Herbal Essences Naked

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/13/2016

I don't get where all the hate comes for Naked dry shampoo. I've tried expensive, moderately priced, and cheap dry shampoos, and this one definitely packs the most bang for the buck.

The spray is surprisingly wet to start off, but I think it feels good and cooling. I get no discoloration of my hair (I don't look gray or white-haired), and I've noticed my hair seems …
