I had used Revlon Colorstay foundation for oily skin years ago because it was always getting rave reviews and mentions on the board. At some point I switched to high end and its been a good 6-10 years since I used this. I do have dry skin so I opted for the dry skin version. This now comes with a pump, always a plus. I wear the shade Buff, one of the few shades good for fair olive skin. …Read more

This is the third shade in the Treat Love and color line that I have purchased. This TLC line is meant to be sheer the semi-sheer, on me one coat was sheer, and two was semi-sheer. The color is a pinkish beige, on fair skin it can almost looks like a light rose gold, and medium and deep skin it's closer to a nude. It wears really well, and I had it on an entire week before I got a couple …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Less Is Aura

This may be my first HG nail polish, seriously this is perfect. The shade Less Is Aura is universally flattering nude shade, Essie describes it as warm terra cotta beige, but it's I'd say it's close to mauve, but more of a brownish pink. This is a creme finish, no glitter or shimmer, and dried down with a nice shine. The real stand out for me is that it goes on fully opaque in …Read more

Ok so I probably overdosed on glitter in the late 90's, but I never lost my affinity for the stuff. Sorry not sorry, but I dislike matte. So Glitter Goals is a glittery liquid lipstick that comes in a variety of shades. I have the shade X Infinity which is described as violet and pink with magenta glitter. I would say that's an accurate description, the shade is a very vivid bright …Read more

Maybellines color Tattoo cream eyeshadows have been around a while now. I've tried quite a few of them but stick with nude and natural shades for those one and done days. Front runner is one of the newer shade, though they seem to launch new shades and discontinue old ones pretty frequently. Front Runner is a unique shade, it's a bit of a neutral color, not warm enough to really be …Read more

I have fair olive skin, and as with a lot of others with olive skin, dark under eye circles are an issue. My dark circles are reddish purple, and a lot of under eye products have a pink tone, but this only makes red/purple look worse as it wont correct those tones. I wasn't sure if I should go with the yellow or green, but opted for the yellow since my circles are more purple than red. I …Read more

Deodorants - Dove - Dry Spray Antiperspirant - All

Saying this is expensive, would be a stretch of the truth, however a can of the aerosol spray costs two to three times more than the solid. A stick of deodorant typically lasts be 4-6 months, while the aerosol can only lasted about a month or two. This goes on dry immediately with a light spray and dries pretty quickly with a heavier spray. The biggest upside is this leaves no white residue …Read more

I've dealt with eczema off and on since I was a teenager, thought it's much less frequent and less severe than when I was younger. I typically have more issue with it flaring up in winter when the air is dry. If you have dealt with eczema, you know you have to sometimes baby your skin. I had been using the Eucerin Shower Oil in colder months, and as needed when my eczema started to …Read more

Moisturizers - Alpha Skin Care - Enhanced Renewal Cream 12% Glycolic Acid

2 months ago

I feel like Alpha Skin Care is one of those hidden gems, they aren't a well known brand, but their products work and they are budget friendly. I have extremely sensitive skin, that tolerates very few actives. I had previously been using the 10% AHA lotion for many years, because my skin is so sensitive and could tolerate daily use of the 10%. However, I felt like it wasn't doing …Read more

Brows, literally the entire reason I started wearing makeup, mine are problematic to say the least. I typically don't like brow pencils, just because I survived the 90's and my "brows" were literally two curves drawn on my face with a brow pencil. Luckily my natually full brows somehow survived, but alas, they are two different colors entirely. I do tint my brows, but that …Read more
