Gels/ Soaps - Caudalie - Bath and Shower Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2017

I've used this shower gel for several years, and while I have tried other body washes I always come back to this one.
It has a light, floral, green scent which is subtle but remains on the skin (which I like). It actually smells like something you'd find in nature, rather like fresh cut grass. It's wonderful to use this in the spring, something about it smells like springtime …

Gels/ Soaps - Bath & Body Works - White Tea and Ginger Shower Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/08/2016

I love this shower gel- it's perfect for the summer when you want a refreshing, clean scent. The spicy ginger helps to prevent the white tea from becoming too sour, and helps to make a more complex scent. Decent staying power, and each bottle lasts a very long time. I only wish that Bath and Body Works would continue to sell this in their stores- the only place to buy it now is only through …Read more

Pressed Powders - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Jul/03/2016

I'm reviewing the shade "Creamy Natural".
I love this product- it provides light coverage and helps to 'set' my BB cream (NYC's matte BB Cream in the shade ). Plus, it's only $4!
I have used this on it's own, without BB cream underneath it, and it was nice for light makeup, but of course it's not as full coverage as when it's layered …

Polishes - REVLON - Cherries in the Snow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/12/2016

I love this polish! This is one of the first nail polishes I ever bought, which makes it slightly nostalgic for me.
"Cherries In The Snow" is a cool, blue-based red, and it's very flattering on my skin tone (very pale), but I have seen reviews of it on darker skin and it looks beautiful as well.It can seem more like a magenta is some lights, but is a true berry red.
The …

Lip Treatments - Smith's Rosebud Salve - Rosebud Salve

5.0

Jan/31/2016

- Strong rose scent, which I like but others might find it a little cloying
- Very cute vintage packaging (I read some reviews saying that it was hard to open, but I only found it difficult to unpackage it. After a few times it's not difficult at all)
- Pretty pink color, which is very light and just looks like Vaseline on the lips
- Because of the scent, I avoid using it when …

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Nina Ultra Pro - Gel Effect

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/02/2015

I bought these at Charlotte Russe yesterday-- I can't find them anywhere else, and they don't appear when I search for them online, either. They are from Nina Ultra Pro, which I believe Sally Beauty Supply carries, but I can't find the 'Gel Effect' ones for some reason.
I bought three of them:
Petal Pusher (an iridescent lavender polish)
Vampy Red (a deep …

Polishes - FingerPaints - Tiffany Imposter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/31/2015

Very good match of the iconic 'Tiffany blue'. Formula was very thick, with great opacity. Unfortunately, the thickness made it a little tricky to work with. Not a particularly shiny finish-- I definitely need a top coat for this polish.
I love that it isn't shimmery-- most light blues tend to have a lot of shimmer in them, but this one was more of a crème with no noticeable …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss - 107

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/30/2015

I was trying to find a dupe for NARS Lip Pencil in 'Cruella'-- I did some research, and read that Revlon ColorBurst Matte Lip Balm in 'Standout' was a good alternative to 'Cruella'.
However, when I went to my local Target, I found that the Revlon cost $8, and I only had about $6 on me.
I looked around at the other makeup displays before arriving at the …

Pros:
*Cute packaging,
