Hair Treatments - Eva NYC - Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer

Meh. I put yes for repurchasing because if I needed a dry oil spray again I wouldn't be opposed to using this again. One big advantage it has over other dry oils on the market is it's really hard to overdo it with EVA NYC 10-in-one Primer. It dries down to nothing on my hair. I actually wish it was more conditioning. I also wish I could tell if it's been doing anything to protect …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Poreless Putty Primer

4.0

I don't use this daily. But to be fair, I don't use any primer that often and as far as primers go this is one of my favorites. I'd recommend it to others.

E.L.F Cosmetics Poreless Putty Primer really does a great job at hiding my pores. A lot of primers just pool around them, emphasizing the poor texture. This on the other hand glides right over them and seems to fill …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%

Honestly...I'm really liking this.

My skin is very acne/rosacea-prone and oily with a dehydrated barrier.

A list of the pros:
-Hydrating without breaking me out.
-Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
-Looks AMAZING under my matte foundation.
-Boosts my skin's sun protection... I can wear this during the day unlike my chemical exfoliators.
-The …

Treatments (Eye) - Deciem - The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

I'm on the fence about this. If I could give 2.5 lippies I would.

I noticed that yes, it got rid of dark circles. It was hydrating and refreshing to my undereye area. For less than $10, this was quite an effective product.

However that's where the pros end. I started noticing that it was doing something ugly to my broken capillaries. I don't have a lot of visible …

First off don't count on this as your main chemical exfoliator if your skin is used to chemical exfoliation. I have sensitive/rosacea-prone skin and it's still not enough on its own, even with nightly use.

Now with that being said... I really do like this product. It is quite gentle, which is good news for my skintype. It doesn't cause me to peel, and I do notice that …

Powder - bareMinerals - Original Foundation

Ok it took me about 13 years but I finally learned my lesson.

I like the formula of the original a lot better than the matte option despite me having oily skin. The original gives you a airbrushed glow whereas the matte formula is very mediocre. I also like being able to build up the coverage. For a powder fndt, this sure offers a lot of pigment.

Now with all that being …

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter - Vanilla Quartz

5.0

I find a lot of the high end make up to be a rip off (I own a lot) but this is worth every penny.

The shade is more complex than say, Nars Albatross. In person Vanilla Quartz is a pale gold with a hint of beige. I am neutral leaning yellow but pure gold highlighters never look natural on me. The beige tone (others are describing as "pinkish") this makes all the difference. It …

Definitely take your time matching your shade. Since this is such full coverage, even the slightest mishap in coloring is very noticeable. I swatched a few in Ulta then when I got home realized it looked...much different under natural lighting.

The ingredient list is REALLY nothing special so I'm still wondering how they pulled this off. My best guess is they formulated it with …

Conditioner - Unlisted Brand - Fanola Nutri Care Restructuring Conditioner

4.0

7 months ago

A friend sent me a 33 oz bottle of this (+ the No Yellow Shampoo) and now I'm hooked.

The first thing I noticed is this smells like butterscotch. The consistency is very light, however it leaves my hair feeling fully moisturized. For such a runny conditioner it sure packs a lot of hydration. My hair feels very soft after using this. Rinsing it out is easy. I don't find clumps …

ONLY use this shampoo if you want straight up ash tones. No warmth will be left behind. It turned my brass to silvery hues within minutes. I would say this is even more pigmented than Blond Brilliance's Lathering Toner...and that's saying a lot. If you bleach your hair and want a ashy platinum - you can skip traditional toner and just use this. It's cost effective and less …Read more
