Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Cowgirl Skincare Extreme C Serum

5.0

9 months ago

I’m totally blown away. After trying every vitamin C serum from Timeless Skincare and Clinique, all the way to 3Lab and Zelens, I was losing hope. Many of them either have bad alcohols, silicones, witch hazel, or hyaluronic acid, all of which I have to avoid (I’m one of the cursed few who has the opposite reaction from topical hyaluronic acid...it pulls moisture out my skin instead of drawing …Read more

Foundations - Dior - Backstage Face & Body Foundation

This was a hard review to write because I truly believe some people will love this foundation. It was a bad fit for me because of the ingredients, but I also think those ingredients could be deal-breakers for many. That being said, onto the review ;).

When I got this foundation, I did something I NEVER do and slapped it on without reading the ingredients. Within seconds I felt my face …

Foundations - Burberry - Fresh Glow Gel Stick

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2018

I was so excited for this foundation to launch because the Fresh Glow Liquid foundation is my holy grail! I hoped the stick version would be the perfect companion to the liquid for areas where I need extra coverage, but unfortunately it is not.
I have mature skin that is prone to dryness and dehydration which means stick foundations rarely work for me (with the exception of Tom Ford’s …

Moisturizers - Mario Badescu - Peptide Renewal Cream

Jun/20/2017

I'm a pretty big fan of Mario Basescu, but I didn't like this cream at all. It made my skin appear dull, felt very heavy, and never seemed to quite absorb. I thought maybe I was using too much, but even a tiny amount felt heavy on my face, almost like a film sitting on my skin. The packaging is cheap and plastic, which I don't care about too much because I'm more concerned …Read more

Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Moisture Cream

Sep/03/2016

This cream was an awesome surprise as I wasn't expecting to even like it, and I ended up loving it! It feels wonderfully moisturizing on my dry/mature skin, and leaves behind a smooth canvas ready for foundation. It helps soften the fine lines around my eyes and provides long lasting moisture that spans the better part of the day. I had gotten a travel size as a gift, and within a week, I …Read more

Moisturizers - IT Cosmetics - Confidence In A Cream

May/21/2016

I love this moisturizer...it's probably my favorite out of all the creams I've tried over the last two years. I have very dry/aging skin and I do still need to use my face oil under this, but the combination has given me the hydrated and moisturized skin I've wanted for a long time now...for the first time in two years I'm waking up without that dry/tight feeling on my …Read more

Foundations - CHANEL - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

Apr/05/2016

This foundation was terrible on me. If you have dry skin, are prone to dehydration, or are sensitive to alcohol, get as far from this foundation as possible...alcohol is VERY high on the ingredient list...it's the 5th or 6th ingredient on a loooong roster.
This foundation magnified every pore and fine line I had...it even showed me a few lines I didn't know I possessed. It …

Tinted Moisturizer - Estée Lauder - Enlighten Even Effect Skintone Corrector SPF 30 [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/02/2016

This product is a must have for me...I'm on my second tube if that says anything. That being said, I was not surprised when I saw the low ratings it garnered on MUA and retail sites. I think we often associate Estée Lauder base products with the iconic Double Wear foundation line, which until a recent addition to the line (DW To-Go), was famous for it's medium to full-coverages …Read more

Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 260 Alezane

Sep/27/2015

When I opened up this blush, I was completely smitten, so much so that I immediately took photos before I even dipped in my brush lol! However, my excitement was short lived...as soon as I applied Alezane my heart sank a little, it was full of glitter?! Not the refined and gorgeous shimmer we often see from Chanel, but chunky glitter that was very much visible on my cheeks. I tried different …Read more

Crème - Estée Lauder - Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Cream Compact Makeup

Sep/04/2015

I just did not like this at all. I'm a cool leaning neutral NW15 and shade 1N1 was a good match, but that's where the good ended. This sunk into every fine line and pore, it creased terribly despite repeated blending, and it accentuated any imperfections I had...not by making them flaky or dry, but by caking around anything it could no matter how sheerly it was applied. This …Read more
