I've repurchased this tube many times, so decided it's finally time for a review. My face is extremely oily, I have to constantly blot throughout the day, no product ever has solved this problem, but before I found this shine stopper it was worse. Putting this product on has completely changed how my face wears makeup for long work days. When I don't put this product on the …Read more

Foundations - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

I have two main issues when looking for a foundation, color match and mattefying capabilities, as I have extremely oily skin. This foundation covers both those problem areas for me and for that alone this foundation is a winner in my book. If you have yellow toned or olive skin give this foundation a try. Coverage isn't full, I'd say this is a medium coverage foundation, however with …Read more

Pressed Powders - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Mineral Instant Shine Eraser

This powder is ok, but I can't give it a better rating because of its horrible packaging. It broke within a couple of weeks. I kept carrying it around anyway, because for a drugstore powder it is a little pricy, but once again, the packaging broke even more, so it's basically useless to carry around, which is what I wanted it for.

The powder itself is ok, looks nice when …

I first bought this foudation almost two years ago after reading the good reviews and needing a full coverage foudation that actually lasted all day.

First let me say the colors are limited. When I went to the counter I had picked out one color, but the MUA at the counter picked out another shade for me, and I went with what she picked out. The color itself does not perfectly fit me …

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

I ran out of my beloved Poshe and not being able to find it quickly at a store near me, I decided to just go ahead and buy the ever so popular Seche Vite. I'm not that big a fan.

I honestly thought I'd love it more, but Poshe works so much better on me than this. Reasons I didn't like Seche as much:
It shrinks if you're not careful.
It takes longer to …

First of all, this is my first BB cream so I cannot compare it to how well others work, but my already oily face has been crazy oily lately, I could not re-blot fast enough, so I just needed to try something new. Plus I found it for cheap.

A couple things about this product, it's a weird consistency and you're supposed to shake it before applying it. If you don't …

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - Feria Color Moisturizing Treatment [DISCONTINUED]

May/15/2013

I bought this, because I remember loving the little bottle of conditioner that comes with the Feria box dye, and I truly wanted to love it, but this conditioner didn't really live up to the hype for me. It's certainly better than a cheap ordinary conditioner, but as a 'moisturizing treatment' it just didn't cut it in my case. It leaves my hair ok. It looks pretty-ish …Read more

Hair Treatments - TRESemmé - Nourishing Rituals Rejuvenating Mud Masque

May/15/2013

I bought this on a whim, because I am constantly looking for conditioners that will work on my fine -hard to comb after a shower- hair. I ended up loving it and just ran out so I need to go buy another one. I use it basically every time I wash my hair, because any regular conditioner just doesn't cut it for my fine, pin straight hair. I'll leave it on for a while in the shower …Read more

May/08/2013

I like this powder. I bought it after finishing my MAC blot powder, and I will say I'm happy its performance. It controls shine well enough, definitely better than a lot of other drugstore 'shine control' powders i've used. My problem with this powder is the packaging. At first I thought it was cute enough, and it is to look at, but it's not very practical. I bought this …Read more

Mascara - Buxom - Lash Volumizing Mascara

I love this mascara. It's the only non-drugstore mascara I've re-bought. However, I don't use this alone, I use it as a 'top coat' for my lashes, so that holds me back from giving it 5 stars. My lashes are extremely straight, and this doesn't hold a curl alone for me, therefore I only use it on top of another mascara, this mascara though, it's …Read more
