Concealers - Trish McEvoy - Correct and Even Full-Face Perfector

Every once in a while I find a product so good that I add it to the database. This is one of them.
I’ll list the notable features providing why I love them and why others may not (which is the reason for 4 lippies as opposed to 5):
Price ($45 US) - it should be noted that as the product name suggests this is not just a concealer but for full face use- either way a little steep …

Liquid - Koh Gen Do - Maifanshi Moisture Foundation

2.0

14 days ago

To me this is nothing more than a tinted moisturizer and not a very good one at that - it doesn’t hydrate all that well and I’ve had much better results evening skin tone with other tinteds (Physicians Formula, Laura Mercier)
I purchased this months ago on sale at Alcone and keep going back to it thinking I must be missing something considering the amazing reviews it receives.
Due to the …

Lip Treatments - City Cosmetics - City Lips Advanced - Clear

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I started using this as a result of a very unsettling string of events in which my MOTHER saw an ad on FACEBOOK and that actually prompted her to purchase one for each of us. The only way I can sleep at night is that she doesn’t use Instagram.
Before confessing this to me she kept it in-house for a few weeks and when she noticed an impressive improvement in the condition of her lips …

Loose Powders - BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder

2.0

3 months ago

I purchased the travel size of this thankfully. The “hydra” action is what I found compelling because my skin is dry yet I often feel the need to set my makeup in places (forehead, under eye).
This has an interesting “wet” feeling upon application and it is very finely milled but it applies Poorly with a brush, with a sponge, and with a puff. So...yeah I’m out of options there.
And, most …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10%

5.0

3 months ago

This is my favorite product from The Ordinary. There are several others that I like or even love, but this is the one I would keep if I could only choose one.
The only sign of aging I’ve really noticed on my face is the elevens. And they started showing up several years ago. They’re worse when I wake up in the morning because I’m an angry sleeper (and awaker, but at least I can control what …

Foundations - Unlisted Brand - Jerome Alexander MagicMinerals Airbrush Foundation Kit

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I bought this because I needed an impromptu touch-up. I like “airbrush” foundations and I usually spray them directly on my face because honestly I don’t get the point of getting a spray to spray it on the brush. I’ve done both with this, however, and each yields good results. The brush this came with has actually become my go-to foundation brush. It’s big, dense and flat with what I assume is an …Read more

Foundations - Kevyn Aucoin - Foundation Balm

2.0

3 months ago

I went to Sephora to replace my empty Dior Forever but before I did I took a look at their site to see what’s new. This product really intrigued me and I’ve never used a K Aucoin foundation but I’ve read rave reviews.
The woman who helped me with it told me they couldn’t give samples of it which is kind of questionable but it comes with a brush so I figured if I don’t love it I’ll still have …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Unlimited Mascara

4.0

6 months ago

I took one lippie off because this mascara is not for the weak of heart; in other words: not for everyone. It’s definitely thick and has clumping tendencies.
However, I like thick mascaras. Probably because my lashes are long but not thick. I don’t “need” to wear false lashes but I usually do. However, with this one it’s totally unnecessary. One coat is great; two coats yield falsie-like …

Concealers - wet n wild - Photo Focus Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I actually “found” this in my makeup drawer, meaning I had obviously purchased and forgotten it, a very rare occurrence. I also had no recollection of trying it which I obviously did. That’s kind of disturbing actually but I can only assume I was in some kind of cosmetic frenzy.
Despite the underlying concern of early onset dementia I was thrilled to “find” it “again”!
This has become …
