Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion Sunscreen SPF 50

18 hours ago

This has been pretty hyped up on YT lately so I had to see for myself if I was missing out on something special. The texture is very nice, no disputing that. The fragrance is so strong. I know people that this would trigger a migraine in. I couldn’t wait to wash it off. As a result of the fragrance being too overpowering for me I can’t give a more thorough review, sorry. The only thing I …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Clear Brow Gel

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Yesterday

This smells straight up like glue which I suppose is appropriate given it’s purpose is to set your brows in place, but if you have coarse hair the holding power just isn’t there. If your brow hairs are thin this might work for you. I am happy to have had the chance to try it thanks to the Sephora 100 point perks - you know there’s rarely a chance to get much of anything of use there unless you …Read more

Masks - Pixi - skintreats T-Zone Peel-Off Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Yesterday

This is a fluorescent green mask that has a slight scent to it but not overpowering. According to the website/packaging: “Detoxifying peel-off mask draws out impurities and lifts away oil to reveal immediate results. It contains a unique green super food blend that includes avocado, cucumber, aloe, green tea and bamboo extract to help firm & refine. Great for congested, dull and tired …Read more

Highlighters - Bourjois - Le Petit Strober - Universal Glow

Yesterday

I got this for $5 in the clearance section at SDM and what a steal this is. The packaging is very compact, solid magnetic closure and the tiny curved brush it comes with is surprisingly soft and useful. The “snap” when you close the compact gives such a satisfying click I find myself opening and closing it a few times with every use, just to experience it. Silly, yeah, I know. The shade is …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Stila - One Step - Correct

3 days ago

I’ve been lucking out with some real finds these days at Winners and Marshalls so got this for about 1/3 the regular price. I had always wanted to try this product so now was my chance! I have some redness on my cheeks and chin and would appreciate a green corrector in a lightweight serum. I just wasn’t sure whether to apply this under or over my sunscreen which happens to be tinted. I opted …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - bareMinerals - Dew Mist Setting Spray

1.0
Created with Sketch.

9 days ago

I got one of these in the 100 points perks from Sephora and it was a total fail for me. It was like spraying my face with shimmer. Every droplet was shiny in an opaque way that didn’t dry down into anything but an opalescent mess. I shook it like crazy before applying and it was still a disaster for me. What’s more, it did not make my makeup look very nice as the day went on. Kind of reminds …Read more

Conditioner - Klorane - Leave-In Cream with Mango Butter

5.0

13 days ago

For a leave-in cream this is a really nice product. It does not weigh down my hair at all and it does keep it soft so that’s a plus. What this will not do is stand on it’s own, meaning you definitely need styling product, especially if you have curly hair. This has changed how I manage my unruly mane though. I notice less frizz, especially on the top of my head near my part even though I just …Read more

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Clay Eyeshadow Palette - Necessary Nudes

3.0
Created with Sketch.

18 days ago

I got this as a free GWP when I bought 2 e.l.f products and to be perfectly honest, I wouldn’t pay for this little palette. I’m more of a one and done kind of shadow person and therefore don’t really have a need for palettes in general, but if I did I would probably use this quite a lot. Having said that, the shades in here do offer some dimension and the kaolin clay aids in the staying power. …Read more

Highlighters - Urban Decay - Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

18 days ago

I am shook. What is this magic? Packaging, simple yet stunning. Inside, a not very exciting looking powder, no shimmer, no hint of this being a highlighter at all. Swatch it and be blown away with the intensity! Blend it and see it fade into an ethereal glow. Oh, and can I mention I found this at Winners for less than half the regular price?!?!?! I will be shelving all of my other …Read more

Bronzers - Catrice - Sun Lover Glow Bronzing Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

20 days ago

I’m shocked at how pigmented this bronzer is. Be sure to use a very light hand when applying or you can very easily and quickly overdo it. The shade is very pretty, with a gorgeous sheen to it. I don’t like matte bronzers, I find them to be somewhat flat and muddy looking on the skin. I’d rather have a bit of a reflect in my bronzer like this has as I feel it mimics the way your skin will …Read more
