Moisturizers - GLAMGLOW - Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer

2.0

Dec/17/2018

Got this with that reprehensible clearing mud mask for a Sephora birthday gift. The mask gave me an allergic reaction, so I made sure to patch test this before using. I don’t hate this as much as the mask, but this isn’t good, either. Smells absolutely divine, but fragrances like this should NOT be used in skincare. This has absolutely no coverage (and I’m a light coverage kind of girl) and the …Read more

Masks - GLAMGLOW - Supermud Clearing Treatment Masque

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/16/2018

Thank god I only got this as a sample. I went to Sephora today and chose the GlamGlow as my gift, as I have been struggling with cystic acne on my chin for the past couple weeks (finals stress) and thought a prestigious brand like GlamGlow would be a nice push in the right direction.


I regret not patch testing. I had it on for about 15 minutes and as soon as I removed it, my entire …

Cleansers - Garnier - SKINACTIVE Micellar Cleansing Water - All-in1 Mattifying (Oily Skin)

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/30/2018

I’ve tried all the Garnier Micellar Waters. As I have oily skin, I decided to give this a try. Dried the hell out of my skin and broke me out. Why?

Looked at the ingredients: alcohol. Even though the front said it doesn’t contain alcohol.


Stopped using it and treated my skin to some hyaluronic acid, and it’s much better now.

Polishes - wet n wild - Fergie - Glowstick

May/06/2018

Why, oh why did you discontinue the Fergie line, WnW? So many great products came out of the Fergie collection, and this nail polish is one of them. I still have my Glowstick polish that I bought a few years ago, and I should probably throw it out, but it still goes on great and dries relatively quickly, so I don’t see the point in trashing it.
I’m a biology major, and as a result I work in …

Masks - LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2018

I received this product for Christmas, and I’m impressed. I have very oily skin that tends to dry out, and it’s difficult to find a moisturizer that doesn’t make me look greasy. This is a godsend. I wake up in the morning and my skin is plump and soft. It’s not heavily fragranced at all, but the scent is light and relaxing. The amount of product you get is overwhelming; I’ve been taking the lid …Read more

Lip Treatments - LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2018

I’ve had my eye on this product for a while. I even put it on my Christmas list along with the water sleeping mask. I received the water sleeping mask for Christmas, but not the lip sleeping mask. Fortunately, I had racked up enough points at Sephora to buy a sample of it. The sample is very generously sized; I wouldn’t believe it was a sample if I didn’t know any better. I’ve been using it since …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2018

I’ve been using Garnier micellar water for about 3 years. I have used all 3 of the types (pink cap, blue cap, and green cap). It takes off makeup like magic, and it’s great if you’re feeling oily or just need to refresh your face. I bought the mattifying one for the first time last week, and I’m in love with it. It really does mattify my face, and it stays matte for a few hours. Even when I start …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Butter Gloss - Angel Food Cake

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2018

I’ve had 5 shades of the original butter gloss: this, Tiramisu (my absolute fave), Red Velvet, Devil’s Food Cake, and Blackberry Pie. AFC is described as a mauve, but it pulls more pink on me. I was a little disappointed because I’m not a huge fan of straight-up pink lip products, but mauves are a staple in my collection. I’ve noticed that NYX’s shade descriptions aren’t exactly on point. What is …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

Feb/19/2018

I’m a firm believer in the adage “you get what you pay for”, but there are also numerous exceptions. This is one of them. As the owner of multiple beauty blenders and one of these babies, I’m surprised to say that this, hands down, is the winner. I find the beauty blenders to be too soft and squishy, and even though they perform well, their simple teardrop shape isn’t optimum for the entire face …Read more

Scrubs - Freeman Beauty - Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/11/2018

This is a bomb-ass sugar scrub/mask! I’ve been using it for almost a year, and I still have a lot left. I got it for $3-4 at the dollar store, and it’s a really great product for the price. My skin always feels so soft and clean when I use this! I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this, but my face feels kinda warm in a weird way when I apply this, but there’s never any kind of allergic …Read more
