This can burn a bit, but it does kill any potential breakouts and does make pores seem smaller.

The scent is kind of intense.

Packaging is great. It's a flip top bottle and it dispenses just the right amount on a cotton pad.

It has AHA,BHA and some alcohol, so if you use this in the daytime, wear sunblock,because it will probably increase your sun …

Toners - L'Oreal Paris - HYDRAFRESH Toner

I've been using this since I was 17. That was over a decade ago. Nothing compares to this toner. You get a lot of product for the money.

It feels cool and light on the skin. I adore the light floral fragrance and it doesn't irritate my normal to dry skin. My skin feels clean and refreshed after I use it and it gets any last bit of makeup that my cold cream didn't …

Pressed Powders - REVLON - PhotoReady Translucent Finisher

Dec/08/2015

I love the product itself. I'm wearing it alone in one of the photos I posted. It does have some serious sparkle, but it is translucent, not chalky or pink. And does it ever look fantastic in photographs!!

It dries my skin out a little, but at least it doesn't make my face look greasy.

My issue is the packaging. I hate the gigantic compact, the latch is fragile,and …

I actually like this powder! Been wearing it for years. I stumbled upon it after I couldn't stand the Noxema scent of the CoverGirl Clean Powder.

I wear shade 125 and it's blessedly neutral to yellow. The texture is really light and semi matte. No sparkle, but it's not flat,either.

A few people have commented that this isn't a great powder for the …

Brows - Maybelline New York - Master Shape

Dec/08/2015

This was a good idea, poor execution situation. The pencil has too broad of a tip to draw on individual hairs,and it goes on creamy and not waxy. Meaning your brows look drawn on.

The cap has a hard time staying on, and the spoolie at the end was not meant for thick brows. It can break off easily.

I don't know about the other shades, but the Auburn shade looked almost …

Props to Maybelline for having an Auburn option.

This does fill in the brows nicely, but don't put it on too thick or it can look unnatural. This is relatively waterproof, and can survive getting caught in the rain.

The packaging drives me a little batty. The cap covering the pencil part is too loose,and the part covering the powder part was on so tight, I couldn't …

I bought Auburn at Ulta.

This is a high quality product for a fair price. And they have a fabulous shade selection.

The texture is perfect. It's a super fine point and is in a retractable tube so you can't break the tip.
It's very stiff, so you can literally draw each individual hair. The pencil comes with a nice sized spoolie on the end. I wish the …

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Drama Pro Palette In 265 Auburn

Dec/08/2015

Okay...for a drugstore product, this isn't cheap. But you get a good amount of product for the money, and it works really well. And if you're a redhead, there are very few other companies that offer an Auburn option.

The wax does a good job of keeping brows in place. No, it's not going to keep them in place like the Brow Drama gel, but wax isn't a …

First off... Maybelline is one of only TWO drugstore brands that carries Auburn shades!!! I give them gigantic points for that. Brown looks super harsh on a redhead,and Blonde/Taupe only looks natural on a strawberry blonde. If you're a carrot top, flame haired,or Auburn ...bite the bullet and get Auburn colored brow products.

I like this gel a lot. It really makes brows look …

Shade 110: Creamy Natural

For 7 bucks at Target, it's great.

I love that it's true matte and gives sheer to light coverage. Wish it wasn't in a tube, but again for the price...i'm not going to yell that much about the packaging.

The colors are pretty good. I have light neutral to yellow skin and it matched pretty close (truth, I honestly think …
