Hair Color - Unlisted Brand - AgeBeautiful Topcoat Toner

I bought this in the shade Pearl Blonde. Ash blonde looked too ashy for me, and Beige Blonde was also reviewed by many as too cool toned. Pearl Blonde is supposed to have neutral undertones according to Sally Beauty's website but it actually develops to a baby pinkish purple shade.

These toners are only useful if you are already platinum blonde. The pigment in these is just way …

Lip Gloss - RIMMEL - Stay Glossy Lip Gloss (All Shades)

3.0

I was tempted to give these 4 lippies but I have 2 major gripes.

1. The pigmentation is lacking. Some of them (i.e Sundae Best) is basically clear.
2. Some of the shades have shimmer, so I don't touch those as shimmer dries my lips out and makes them look 90 years old.

Now that we've got that out of the way, I do love the formula. These do not have that …

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Outlast Active 24 HR Foundation SPF 20

4.0

5 months ago

Looks like I'm the first to review this on MUA. I've been pretty disappointed in trying out high end foundations lately so I gave this a try. I tend to try all the matte foundations on the market since I'm oily/acne prone. Honestly, this is a good product.

Covergirl offers a shade pale enough for my NC10 skin (Fair Ivory). The formula is very light and liquidy. It …

Lip Treatments - Too Faced - Peach Mega Moisture Lip Balm - Peaches and Cream Collection

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I was fully ready to hate this balm. But I just can't, it's wonderful. Too Faced was smart to give this formula a lot of tack. It stays on the lips. You can apply before bedtime and wake up to supple lips. That's important to me. It's more thick than greasy. The color seems to have a brightening affect. This didn't further dry out my lips or have that stupid minty …Read more

Liquid - Too Faced - Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

3.0

This was awful news for my acne-prone skin. It was too dewy, and broke me out. However if it wasn't for that I would repurchase. The finish of this is really beautiful. It glides over any fine lines or imperfections. The coverage is pretty decent. And they even have pale enough shades for me. I'd recommend this for anyone with normal-dry skin who need a longwear foundation.

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

2.0

Pros:
-The palest shade is pale enough to look very natural on me and I'm NC10.
-It doesn't emphasize any fine lines.

Cons:
-Sheer to medium coverage...I sure as hell wasn't that. It doesn't cover any of my redness from rosacea & I feel like I wore a generous amount.
-Doesn't fully dry down despite being advertised as matte
-Even …

Hair Treatments - Kristin Ess Hair - Instant Exfoliating Scalp Scrub

2.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

This is only slightly better than the Ouidad scalp scrub I tried 2 years ago. The Ouidad had these hard microbeads whereas the Kristin Ess uses a softer material.

Overall though, the concept of scalp scrubs in general is a bad idea. This is the last one I'm ever giving a chance too. Yes, the scalp is skin. But should you be manually/physically exfoliating it with a scrub? …

Conditioner - Suave - Professionals Sleek Conditioner

I hated this conditioner the first time I tried it a few years ago. Everyone else seemed to love it, so I was bummed.

It's 2019 now and they reformulated it at some point. The bottle is no longer orange. I like the new formula. It is very silicone heavy and has other stuff like lactic acid in it to smooth out the hair. For less than $3 it left my hair soft.

You will …

Cleansers - Pond's - Makeup Remover Cleansing Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Edit: Bumping this to 4 lippies. I love how it 100% gets my make up off CLEAN.

I have tried plenty of cleansing balms. This one is more suited for oily skin because the emulsifiers (what rinses off the oil) are definitely higher in this formula than others on the market (i.e Clinique Take The Day Off Balm). It did a great job removing all of my make up and didn't leave a film or …

Lip Treatments - Drunk Elephant - Lippe Balm

I'm surprised there's not more reviews thus far. As I write this, I'm the 14th reviewer for it.

Anyways - don't bother with this product. You're better off applying vitamin c serum to your lips followed by a SPF lip balm.

My biggest issue is this doesn't really adhere to the lips. A lot of lippies further dry my lips out...and this is one of …
