Cleansers - Glossier - Milky Jelly Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2016

Abstract - Holy Salmon Salad Batman, this cleanser is the bomb. And all those other words meant to appeal to millennials in the Glossier marketing plan (yeah, so maybe I'm in the upper end of that demo, but whatever).

Full Review - I have not loved a cleanser in ages. Maybe ever. Not like this. This is true love on the level of The Princess Bride. This is the cleanser that would …

Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2016

I've never been a huge "brow person," and have barely paid attention to them despite my love of eye makeup. I tweeze conservatively as needed.

Since I've had some great experiences with other Glossier products, I decided to try the Boy Brow since I feel the price is very accessible for this kind of product. I do admit to typically purchasing high-end makeup …

Toners - Biologique Recherche - Exfoliating Lotion P50

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2016

Abstract - Do not walk, do not run, take a supersonic jet to get this product. Immediately. You need it. Everyone needs it. I feel like I found the reason Helen of Troy was abducted by a smarmy little tool, because her skin was so bloomin' smooth from P50.

Full Review - I really have to contain myself or this review will be fifty-thousand words long. After almost a year of …

Masks - Biologique Recherche - Masque Vivant

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2016

Abstract - This mask is the Rachmaninoff of masks. Plain, sad, reeking of failed crops in a post-Feudal society, and then it sneaks up on you and messes with your emotions until it's on repeat on your skincare playlist. Is it worth the confusion? Yes, it is. It is a thing of smelly beauty.

Full Review - I tried Masque Vivant because Lotion P50 is my high-quality skincare heroine …

Lips - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain (All Shades)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2012

This review is for Glossy Stains in general, rather than a specific shade. I now have #5 and #7, and both are HGs that go everywhere with me. I don't find them difficult to apply at all, they last four hours (at least four while remaining glossy, and another two as a satin-finish stain) before any reapplication is required. The colors are just lovely, and I really feel that, while on the …Read more

Lips - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain 7 Corail Aquatique

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2012

This review is just spouting the same glowing verbosity as the others, but I'm so in lurve with these stains in general, and specifically with #7. I was extremely hesitant to try anything labeled "coral" because my uber-PPP (we're talking NW8-ish) and cool/pink toned skin usually can't take anything in the warm family. Corals have always made me look garish, with …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Cherry Tart [DISCONTINUED]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2012

I am definitely NOT on the lip butter bandwagon. I found that the packaging felt flimsy and made of potentially-breakable plastic (more easily than normal), and the cap was loose-fitting. As for the butter, it was drying, for me not as pigmented in this shade as others have said, lasts only about an hour before reapplication is necessary, and in general, was very disappointing considering the …Read more

Cleansers - Trader Joe's - Nourish All-In-One Facial Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/13/2012

UPDATE - After two months of use following the two weeks my below review was written, this cleanser has become drying. My breakouts got worse because of the dehydration, so while the product itself is till IMO very good, it's just a bit too much for my skin.

Masks - Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2005

Well, let's just preface this with a small explanation: I'm 22, still suffer from hideous acne, and I'm not particularly partial to any one brand so I think I'm fairly unbiased. That said:

I finally bought a giant tube of this at Walgreens after the huge raves here (plus got one free, all for $3). That was the only good part.

I've been having pretty …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/25/2004

This is best lip balm in the world to heal and maintain the lips. I have really dry, chapped lips (mostly because I tend to chew them a lot, bad me) and this balm relieves the pain, dryness, and roughness. I have used it every night at bedtime for a bout a year, and hardly have chapping problems at all. It's got a great texture, and the tingly sensation makes you feel like it's healing …Read more
