Skincare - Face - CeraVe - Hydrating Micellar Water

4.0

Jan/26/2018

I love Micellar waters and I have been waiting for this one as CeraVe is my hands down favorite skin care brand. The ingredients have integrity and purpose. I have melasma & use Retin-A so I live for products that hyrdrate in a non-greasy manor and contain niacinimie for the hyper pigmentation. On to this product in particular, it makes my skin feel deeply hydrated for hours. I have my normal …Read more

Mascara - wet n wild - Lash Renegade Mascara

I LOVE THIS MASCARA! It stays well over the 16+ hours I wear makeup for my workdays. I've been consistently wearing it for 2 weeks now and it has yet to flake or smudge on me in spite of constantly using eyedrops. This replaced my Theyre Real and Better Than Sex mascaras for 1/4 of the price. It has a minimally larger, plastic/silicone brush/wand with a ball tip end & slightly thicker …Read more

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette - Nude Mood

I love this palette for its mix of cool & warm tones. I use it failed to add soft dimension with the mid tones and to deepen it with obviously the deeper tones. The light shades are just there taking up space bc they're worthless. No pigment whatsoever! Maybe they can kind of act as a setting powder for primer or concealer? Idk... but I do love the mid tones in this palette! They blend …Read more

This is my HG mascara! I've tried all I can get my hands in and THIS is the one I've repurchased over and over! It gives me dramatic, thick, long, curled lashes live no other mascara has before... Did I mention it's budge proof once dried?! Even at the beach, in humidity, under hot lights at a photoshoot? It's THAT good! I work 12-24 hour shifts and this is the only mascara …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick

Apr/14/2016

By no means is this a matte liquid lipstick. In my opinion, this is a nicely pigmented gloss. The problem here, for me, it the smell & taste... And the fact that it is advertised ludicrously. I tend to wear nude colors and the one I picked up was a MLBB shade for me but I still will not be repurchasing. The packaging is nice and compact. I must say that is one of its more redeeming …Read more

Mar/05/2016

Let me start by telling you that I have really watery eyes & I tend to work 12+ hour shifts meaning I'm in my makeup for about 14+hrs. That being said I feel I'm a decent judge on staying power of cosmetics & boy are these liners awesome!

What I LOVE about them:
*They're pretty well pigmented! I can usually stick with one sweep of the pencil and call it a …

Treatments (Face) - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Lemon Juice

Jan/27/2016

DO NOT USE LEMON JUICE ON YOUR SKIN!!! I'm into cosmetic chemistry, dermatology and I do my research on everything I put on my skin. I only have one face & I want it to look it's best for as long as possible! That being said, lemon juice, or any citrus fruit for that matter, has the potential to do some serious short & long term damage. Not only does it immidiatly sensitize …Read more

I LOVE this base! I have pathetic excuses for nails. They're so thin and constantly bend that polish usually flakes off them in meet hours along the bend points. This stuff actually allows me to have nicely polished nails for a couple days. When topped with my HG top coat SV or OTD they last a full week. I will always have a bottle of this at home for my DIY mani/pedis

Feb/28/2015

I am always on the hunt for my HG foundation & this has been in my rotation of my 3 favorites for about a year now. Let's start with packaging, shall we?
For starters, I prefer squeeze tubes only secondly to an airless pump. I dispense only what I need & I don't feel like I'm wasting product. This comes in an opaque squeeze tube that helps prevent light degradation …

Feb/28/2015

I am so sad this foundation irritated my skin to the point that I literally looked like I had RAZOR BURN on my chin, upper lip & jaw! When initially swatches it at home & tested it out it was beautiful! Smooth & light. Dried down to a radiant glow with out setting powder. Set with the matching powder it had a bit mor staying power, 7 or so hours compared to about 3 without the powder …Read more
