Lip Liners - RIMMEL - Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner - Obsession 064

I have a love/hate situation with this lipliner. It's a beautiful brick red color with a nice creamy consistency. However, it comes off patchy and chunks up. Maybe I got a bad one, but I've thrown it out because red lipstick is labor intensive enough as it is without having to worry about blending creamy patches of caked lipliner into the mix. Nope.

Polishes - Formula X - Grey Matter

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2017

Pretty, moderately dark blue-toned grey. Gives off an impression of minimalist sophistication...This could also be a dress up polish for those who like to wear black nail polish.

Unfortunately, the formula is kind of a pain. Little difficult to work with; it's a bit gloopy which ends up making it streaky. I was able to even it out on everything pretty nicely, except for my …

Polishes - ZOYA - Brizia

Zoya Brizia is a lovely dusty violet with a pearlescent (almost metallic) finish. Sometimes it dries fairly quick, so I did have a little difficulty smoothing 2 nails out. However, that could be because I have an older bottle that had been subjected to heat and light. Over all, absolutely gorgeous color with a formula from a company that I trust.

Treatments (Face) - Sunday Riley - Luna Sleeping Night Oil

Aug/27/2016

Used a 5 day ampule pack. 2 days together, a week break, and 3 days together. First round wasn't sure if I was seeing benefits...I think I was having skin issues from other factors. Second round saw a mild softening of fine lines and major increase in hydration. Some beginnings of break outs on chin area; could be due to too much oil or monthly hormone cycle. I would have to test out a …Read more

Cleansers - Koh Gen Do - Oriental Plants Cleansing Cream

Aug/25/2016

Love this! This is the first step of my cleansing regimen. I can't speak to it's effectiveness in taking off mascara, because I use something specifically for that, but it breaks down all the rest of my makeup amazingly and improves the condition/texture of my skin.

I have highly reactive rosacea afflicted skin. Because my skin's barrier is compromised, it gets …

Cleansers - Koh Gen Do - Oriental Plants Facial Wash

Aug/25/2016

I love this. I have rosacea with combination skin (highly reactive).I only use it once a day, at night, and this is the second step in my cleansing regimen.

The best way to use this is with a foaming net (you can purchase them at online retailers and Asian beauty stores for under $5). With a foaming net you only need a little over the size of a pea and it will work into a fluffy, but …

Mascara - Urban Decay - Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara

Feb/01/2016

This mascara has become a Holy Grail. I do not use that term lightly. I had a friend pass away and I found out my cat has cancer....so you can imagine that tears have been a regular occurrence. This mascara has been amazing. It's lengthening, thickening and holds a curl all day. No flaking, smudging, budging...nothing. It's easy to take off at the end of the night with my remover …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - ORIGINS - GinZing

Feb/01/2016

I am not a fan of this item. The "instant brightening" effect that the marketing refers to is a pale pink pearl shimmer that forms the base of this cream. I only used this for a couple of days, so I cannot speak to long term benefits. The few days that I did use it, I was not impressed. The dryness under my eyes was still as pronounced as before and it made make-up application not as …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Paula's Choice - Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish Oil-Control Primer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/04/2016

I have combo/sensitive skin. I am oily on my nose and chin, so I thought I'd try this out. This did have a smooth/matte feel, but the finish wasn't good. It gummed up in certain areas and didn't help most textural issues. This also seemed to be slightly irritating. I know it wasn't because of my moisturizer as I have sampled other primers with the same base ingredients. Just …Read more
