Liquid - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Flawless Finish Foundation

I have sensitive skin, so this didn’t work for me. I wanted to love this so much because of the perfect chocolate-color match, the ability to control shine and the pretty finish. But the day after I wore this for the first time, I started getting painful bumps. I checked the ingredients and noticed that there’s Silica. I definitely can’t wear that. Other people have mentioned fragrance. …Read more

I could not love this product anymore than I do! It's perfection given my goal.

I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry cheeks. I wanted a cleanser for my cheeks in the mornings. I use super rich serums and moisturizers overnight. So in the morning, I just need a cleanser that removes the moisturizing products without causing dehydration and nullifying the benefits …

Love this product! I spent many months testing makeup removal wipes. This product took the top position!

I have combination skin with a naturally oily t-zone and dry cheeks. So I wanted a wipe that would successfully remove the makeup without drying out and dehydrating my whole face. I noticed that some of the wipes dragged against my skin and felt like they could use way more …

I'm so sad ????. I've been a fan of this product for the last 5 months. As I finished up my first bottle, I was heartbroken by a discovery. The ingredients list shows silica. I have an allergic sensitivity to silicone. So this is the cause of the relatively mild rash on the tops of my cheeks!

I'm guessing that the reaction was mild because I always use a tiny amount …

This is one of my best cleansing products, ever! I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry cheeks. This cleanser breaks through the oil on my forehead and nose without drying out my cheeks.

I love the consistency. The first time that I used it, I could tell that it would be gentle on my skin. The consistency is very unique. It's a cross between a foam, a soapy …

I love this color! I'm chocolate brown. Even though I had heard that orange blush would be great on me, I always suspected that the people who liked this also liked bright, carnival-type colors that you'd see in the Carribean.

I was so wrong about this bright orange blush. The color is way more toned down on my skin than it is in the pot. My cheeks just look alive in a …

In this month of January 2018, this Fenty lipstick is one of the options for redeeming 100 of your Sephora frequent customer points. The color is Griselda. This pretty, deep-wine color is perfect for my chocolate skin.

Here's why this is one of the best gifts ever for the 100 frequent customer points. First, this is a large sample. It'll take me a while to use this up …

Cleansers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser

I love this cleanser. But that's because I've found a way to use it that is different than what you'd expect.

The first time that I used this product, I quickly learned that it didn't break down my makeup quickly and thoroughly. My concern was that I'd have to use a lot of it to get the job done each night. And the process would take too long.

I …

Moisturizers - Lancôme - Absolue cream

Dec/28/2017

I can always count on this moisturizer to deeply hydrate my naturally dry cheeks! Every other moisturizer is ho-hum on my skin overnight. And while the day version of this cream is not the night version, I still find that the day version leaves me deeply hydrated during the night.

I had been using this product on and off over the last few years. I often found that it was included …

Dec/28/2017

This is an HG product for me, folks! Love it to death. Been using it for around 15 years.

I initially started using this because my eye areas were feeling dry after I removed my eye makeup each night. With age, my eyelids were getting naturally drier. I felt the intense hydration the first time that I used the product. Still, my eyelids feel like velvet in the mornings. …
