I've had the James Charles Palette for a while, and waited to really give it a few tries before writing a review. Like other Morphe palettes it's a good value, they a priced much lower than mid end brands but the majority of the eyeshadows are well pigmented. I haven't used lower end shadows in several years just because the color payoff was usually terrible. this is my second …Read more

As the name states this is a mineral AKA physical sunscreen, and contains both Zinc Oxide, and Titanium Dioxide. I had been using chemical sunscreens on my face, by had issues with irritation in the eye area. The biggest caveat with this and other physical sunscreens is that they leave a white cast. I'm fair to light toned and upon application the white cast is pretty intense. It does …Read more

My biggest skin concerns are dryness and sensitivity with warmer weather starting I was looking for a daily moisturizer that lighter than the oils I use in colder months. I purchased this at a local Korean cosmetics shop at the advice of the sales associate. I've been using this for about a week, and so far I am mostly pleased. It's a fairly lightweight cream almost lotion like …Read more

I purchased this specifically to use with the No7 Custom Blend foundation drops. I have combo skin the tends to lean dry so I prefer a dewy finish. This initially dispenses as a white cream, not too heavy, and almost gel like. As the product is blended it turns into a pearly pink lavender shade. I was a bit disappointed that it turned pink as one my my objectives in doing my makeup is to …Read more

I had used and loved No7 Lift and Luminate in Warm Ivory, but stopped using it over the summer because it could not withstand the hot and humid weather where I live. I spotted this in Walgreens one day, but waited to check out some reviews before purchasing. As far as I can tell the shades in this correspond with the shades in the other No7 foundations.

The foundation drops can be …

I didn't really care for this particular shade. I went my the swatches at Sally Beauty, not realizing being next to a window the swatches were quite faded. While I was hoping for a nice coral, this is a bright coral almost orange. This would look great on medium to deep skin tones with a red or pink undertone. If you are fair or have a yellow or fair olive tone, this shade may be a bit …Read more

I am a fan of nude nails at the moment and this shade caught my eye being a nice nude brownish pink. It is very similar to Humidi-Tea, with Dulce De Leche being a browning pink creme, and Humidi-Tea being about a shimmer that's about half a shade lighter. For whatever reason this applied better and wore better than Humidi-Tea. My job is particularly rough on my nails, and after a week I …Read more

I love a good cream blush, and I'm happy Stila brought these back as they are new discovery for me. Like most cream blushes the color is buildable, making these suitable for a variety of skin tones. I'm a fair olive somewhere between NC20 and NC25, so I appreciate being able to do a sheer flush of color. Camellia is a flattering peachy brown according to Sephora and I say it's …Read more

Treatments - Essie - Treat Love & Color Nail Polish - Glowing Strong

This is my second purchase from Essies TLC line. I had previously used the shade Tinted Love and like that it was a strengthener and color in one, without needing two separate products. Glowing Strong is a nice soft coral or peach shade, and could be considered a nude. As much as I love bright colors I tend to stick to more muted shades because I'm on the fair side and brights just …Read more

Maybe I got a bottle that was bad or old but I wasn't impressed with this one, I haven't done my own nails in years, but OPI was one of only two brands I really trusted because their polishes always go on evenly and look nice with two coats. This one took three and it still looked a bit sparse on some areas. The polish chipped mid nail the same day I did them. The shade itself a …Read more
