Foundations - beautyblender - Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation

5.0

I have zero issues with this foundation. It sets to a beautiful matte finish but is not dry or drying, the coverage is excellent yet it’s very skin-like. The bottle is nothing short of ingenious and it’s not crazy expensive. I haven’t experienced much oxidation although I have yet to wear a decent coverage foundation with absolutely none. Although I’ll say this; WnW photo finish liquid is amazing …Read more

Fragrances - Parfums de Coeur - Pink Vanilla Kiss Fantasy

This is part review, part confession.

This is my signature scent. It’s the only fragrance I wear and I’m not a kid. I’m a grown ass woman with relatively sophisticated tastes.

I purchased this in a plastic (it only comes in plastic btw) travel sized spray bottle one night many years ago before a night out for a little “refresher” should I feel the need. That’s all she wrote …

Hair Treatments - Briogeo - Don`t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Cap System

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I hate everything about this. It’s heavily scented, which I don’t like regardless of the scent, but I happen to really not be a fan of whatever this fragrance is. The cap is so frikkin itchy it makes me irritable immediately, and it doesn’t do anything for my hair. Nada. 
Furthermore, they’re so busy with their cutesy “Don’t despair repair!!” In the directions, yet they don’t specify if this …Read more

I hate everything about this. (I have the cap system with this mask). It’s heavily scented, which I don’t like regardless of the scent, but I happen to really not be a fan of whatever this fragrance is. The cap is so frikkin itchy it makes me irritable immediately, and it doesn’t do anything for my hair. Nada.

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

4.0

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

3 months 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.

5 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

5 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
Created with Sketch.

5 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 …
