Moisturizers - KORRES Natural Products - Black Pine Night Cream

Feb/21/2016

First off, this is probably the most moisturizing, smoothing and refreshing cream I've ever used. After applying it in the evening, I woke up the next morning with beautiful, silky skin. That being said, the fragrance is a dealbreaker. The cream has a sickly medicinal smell which was so intolerable I had to cover it with couple layers of Origins, Drink it Up. I'm very disappointed …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Tarte Cosmetics - Pure Maracuja Oil

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/13/2013

I recently bought the Tarte Maracuja oil that comes in a purple glass tube and applies with a roller ball. I was really enjoying the oil. It has a nice consistency and absorbs quickly, but applying it was a challenge as the roller ball doesn't work all the time. Sometimes no oil would come out. Turns out it didn't really matter because today I accidentally tipped the bottle over on the …Read more

Liquid - ORIGINS - Stay Tuned Balancing Face Makeup

Jul/24/2013

Origins Stay Tuned in Bare has been my HG foundation for many, many years. The color makes me look alive and young and refreshed. The medium coverage is perfect for me. It covers redness and acne scars and gives a beautiful finish. The problem is that I'm a little older now and my skin has become dry. Origins has a foundation for dry skin but their color shades are different. This is …Read more

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Even Better Makeup SPF 15

Jul/23/2013

I was given a sample of this foundation at Sephora after an SA color matched my skin. They now have a device which "reads" your skin and assigns you a skin tone number, somewhat like Mac's matching, but Sephora's system matches you with every foundation they sell, and then emails you your shade in each foundation. The clerk offered me a sample of the Clinique foundation in …Read more

Lip Gloss - Bobbi Brown - Crystal Lip Gloss

Jul/18/2013

I had high expectations for this product. This morning, I covered my lips with my favorite Nars lip pencil. I place a little of the BB lip gloss on a lipstick brush and starting placing it over the lip pencil. The gloss is a sticky, difficult consistency to work with. It was messing up my lip color, making it uneven, but worst of all, it turned my favorite color plum lip pencil into a bright …Read more

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Outlast 450

Jul/01/2013

I bought this lip stain on a whim because it looked to be a deep mauve which is a good color for me. The name, "Saucy Plum" would indicate a purple color. I tested it first on my arm and the color came out a deep, dramatic wine. I thought, "Oh no. I could never pull that off." I have very fair NW20 skintone (Mac). I decided to try it on my lips anyway, and to my surprise …Read more

Blush - L'Oreal Paris - The OneSweep Blush

This is by far the worst makeup item of any kind I have ever purchased. Zero pigmentation! You can apply and apply with no pay off. I bought Posh Chic, but from the reviews I guess they're all like that. The product is worthless.

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

I like this foundation for giving nice, medium coverage. In addition it doesn't seem to settle into fine lines. I bought the formula for dry skin. I have to work with it a bit to prevent it from looking cakey, but that could be due to the fact that I'm using a stipple brush which is something I've never used before. If I buff enough, I get a nice airbrushed look. The one thing I …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz

Jun/16/2013

I just started using this product. I bought the "Carmel" color which used to be called "Strawburn." I like the way it goes on lightly and you can build up the color. It looks very natural. But I also have to say that the color looks like a nice shade of dark brown and doesn't look very auburn. I happened to have a Maybelline auburn brow pencil which shows as a light …Read more

Makeup Brushes - SHISEIDO - Perfect Foundation Brush

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/16/2013

I bought this brush after reading some rave reviews, but after using it for a little over a week, I can't say I'm that impressed. I don't think it's any better than Real Techniques stipple brush. Why pay 3x the price for a Shiseido brush when you can get a brush which works just as well for $9. In addition, the RT brush is easier to use because it has a longer handle.
