Moisturizers - L'Oreal Paris - Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Golden Balm

This moisturizer is perfect for those who are on a Retin-A regimen. I had low expectations when I bought this because thick and balmy moisturizers usually clog my pores and make my makeup slide off. Golden Balm isn't actually like this at all! It hydrates just enough. My foundations look beautiful on top of this moisturizer and it never compromises the foundation's longevity. I still …Read more

Liquid - CHANEL - Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15

First of all, I'm being VERY generous for giving this foundation 2 stars instead of 1. However, the color match was decent and it was easy to apply (so I suppose that's something good).
I am currently about an NC25 (but lean much more neutral). I chose the shade B-30. It was a dead-on match! I have some fine lines and oily combo skin.
The consistency of this product is super …

This eye serum is the only one I've ever tried that gave me dramatic results overnight. I know this sounds unbelievable but it's the truth. It tightened the skin and diminished my puffiness and dark circles. I don't even have to use concealer under my eyes anymore. I'd slather it all over my face if it weren't so expensive! If you're looking for an eye serum that …Read more

I'm just going to come right out and say this is the best foundation on earth. I cannot even put my love for this product into words that are strong enough to accurately portray my affection.
I am 38 years old and some fine lines and dullness have been creeping up on me. Right now I'm probably about an N20 and the shade "Nude" is perfect for me. I also use retin-a and …

This concealer is absolutely amazing. I use it under my eyes and it does not crease whatsoever on me. I even use MAC Strobe cream under it just to brighten up my undereyes...and it still never creases!

It is a thicker formula but it covers everything. It doesn't look super heavy once it sets and it does not budge at all! I'm about an N20 right now and I chose the shade …

Sep/29/2016

I am somewhat on the fence about this foundation. I have a super oily T-zone in the summer and it did nothing to prevent oil breakthrough. I have to blot after only 2 hours when wearing this foundation. Also, some days it almost seems like it makes my skin texture look not so smooth.

HOWEVER... On days when my skin is cooperating, this foundation looks insanely gorgeous on me. The …

Aug/14/2016

This is bad stuff. Bad bad stuff. I thought I'd be the exception to all of the bad reviews I've read about this foundation so I ordered it and optimistically waited for my new foundation to arrive in the mail. I quickly realized just how pigmented this foundation really is. It literally only takes about a 1/2 of a fingertip to cover the entire face. However, once it's applied and …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Sol de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/22/2016

I received the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream as a Sample from Sephora. The description on the product states that it will tighten and firm the appearance of skin. Specifically, this cream is designed for the rear end! So, naturally, I laughed at the notion that my rear could ever be tight or firm again and I tossed the unused sample in a drawer with all of my other misfit samples. A few days ago, I ran …Read more

Styling Products - Oribe - Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil

Jun/30/2016

I had my eyes on Oribe Gold Lust Oil for about a year before I finally purchased a bottle. I was very hesitant to buy this oil because the price is ridiculous. I finally caved because I had some Birchbox points saved up to help absorb some of the cost.

For reference, I have thick, coarse and wavy hair which is color treated and has some flat iron damage as well. I have tried what …

May/15/2016

Sit down Olaplex! I have used this Ion Absolute Perfection Booster both with bleaching and toning my hair. I am here to say that this product does everything it says it does! My hair feels stronger, looks smoother and has hardly any damage from the bleach marathon I pulled this weekend. The best part? This miracle worker is only a little over $1.00 at Sally's Beauty Supply. One little vial …Read more
