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

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Mimosas for Mr and Mrs

Mimosas for Mr. & Mrs is a very pale pink, almost off white shade. Although fair olive is often brought up in the aspect of foundation, it does have a significant impact on color cosmetics. Shade wise, if you are fair olive this particular color is the nail equivalent of a too light nude lip, but instead a too light nude nail. The color ends up fighting with that green undertone making …Read more

I have a love hate relationship with powder, I love using powder buy most powders are not great looking on my skin. I've always had dry skin, as I approach 40, it more of an issue. I've tried all sorts of powders from drug store, to high end but nothing really wowed me until now. The first use I actually was not impressed, but I've been using it a couple weeks now and I am very …Read more

Late last year year I removed my dip powder nails and went back to a natural nail. While the dip powder itself isn't harmful to the nail, the salon I I had been using always over filed and my nails were paper thin. I used a nail strengthener for two to three months, and once i had healthy strong new growth, I switched to this. I really just needed a ridge filler and my nails were neither …Read more

I'm really on the fence about this product, my understanding is that it's not meant to be a stand alone moisturizer. It's to be layered with other products as part of a routine, the problem with that is,product applied over this do tend to pill. I've layered sunscreen over this, pilling, I've layered this over C serum, pilling unless I wait about 10-20 minutes than …Read more

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 …
