Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Lansinoh Lanolin

I hate this stuff. I honestly don't know how it gets such great reviews. It's so sticky. If it gets anywhere it's very difficult to get it off. Because it's so sticky and thick it feels very heavy and uncomfortable on the lips. After a night of wearing this my lips don't even feel that much more moisturized. Aquaphor is a million times better than this and I would …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Soap & Glory - One Heck of A Blot Instant Perfecting Power Primer

Jun/15/2017

This is my HG primer. I am extremely acne prone and oily. I have tried a ton of primers and before trying this primer they all broke me out except for Becca Ever Matte. The Becca primer didn't break me out, but it isn't really a good primer IMO. This primer does't break me out. My guess is because it's doesn't contain cylops like almost every other primer on the market …Read more

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Accutane (by prescription)

Jun/15/2017

Accutane has been a life saver for me. I've had persistent acne since I hit puberty (I'm now 25). I did a round of accutane when 18 and stayed clear for about 2 years. Then I did another round at 23 and cleared while on it, but did not stay clear after stopping. My acne is hormonal and really I should be using something like spiro instead, but I can't used that due to side effects …Read more

The first time I bought this product and used it I didn't understand the hype. I left it in my hair for about a minute and then rinsed it out. My hair didn't feel much different and I was unimpressed.

A couple years later I decided to try it again. This time I actually read the back of the bottle and left it in my hair for 5 minutes like the instructions say. Totally …

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Spironolactone for Acne

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2017

Spironolactone is the miracle acne product that I cannot use. I have tried it several times over the last 10 years, and each time the side effects I get from it force me to stop using it. It takes about 3 months for me to see improvement while on it and then 6 months to see the full effects. After 6 months my acne clears for the most part and my skin becomes much less oily. If I didn't get …Read more

Concealers - Tarte Cosmetics - Shape Tape Contour Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2017

I bought this concealer because it has a shades light enough for pale people like me (NW 10-15) and because it's supposed to hold up very well throughout the day. I have oily-ish skin so concealer can have a tendency to fade throughout the day. This concealer does hold up very well, but it looks very cakey and drying even when I apply it very sparingly. Being oily, it is very unusual for me …Read more

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Spray De Mode

I love this hair spray so much. It holds so well (I live in super humid Houston, TX), but manages to feel incredibly light. You can brush your hair after spraying it and it doesn't decrease the holding power. It also doesn't make your hair all tangled like some other hair sprays do. The only downside is the price. I love it so much, though, that I will continue to buy it.

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

5.0

Apr/01/2017

This is a fabulous primer and I cannot understand why it doesn't have better reviews. I find it very comparable to HG mineral veil. If you like that primer then I think you would like this one as well (and it's so much cheaper!). It works very well at controlling oil and it keeps my makeup looking nice until I take it off. I have tried a ton of primers because I'm breakout prone …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2017

This sponge is awesome for applying makeup. It makes makeup look so much more natural and even compared to using a brush or your hands. It can be used wet or dry depending on what product you're using it with. I have not used the beauty blender so I really cannot compare the two, but I will say I am not tempted to ever buy a beauty blender after using this. I love that it's so cheap and …Read more

I've been trying lots of primers lately and this is honestly the worst one that I've tried. It makes my makeup look worse than if I wore no primer at all AND it breaks me out. It does have some oil control, but not a lot. I would pass on this primer.
