I'm pretty committed to the Kat Von D liner but will try something else every once in a while. I heard this was a dupe for KVD and it's half the price so I figured why not and purchased it in "Black." I am not impressed. I find the formula to be watery and not a true black, and while I just realized that there is a "Black" and "Ultra Black," I'm not …Read more

Sunscreen - Drunk Elephant - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30

Feb/15/2018

I received a deluxe sample of this product as a gift with purchase on a Sephora order. I wasn't expecting much since I had already tried the company's untinted physical sunscreen and found it too sparkly. Umbra Tinte, however, is not sparkly at all. And, unlike other tinted sunscreens I've tried, the tint blends seamlessly into my Indian complexion -- no white residue and it …Read more

I love Elta MD and adore their UV sport moisturizer, which is the only thing I've found that contains physical sunscreen but doesn't make me look like a ghost when I sweat. So I expected to like this but...I didn't. I found it very drying, and despite my best efforts to finish the tube (I hate wasting product) I ended up chucking it. The tint was okay, and blended in with a little …Read more

Jan/31/2018

I got this as a Sephora gift with purchase. I have never been very impressed with Dr. Brandt products, which seem to use the doctor label to be extremely overpriced. I also highly doubt the 2% retinol claim because, as a person with sensitive skin who hasn't used retinol in ages, and I've found it very easy to overdo products with much less retinol in them. And yet, I was able to use …Read more

I had a tube of this for a while and used this product as a nightly lip balm and really enjoyed it. I also love the packaging and the smell, which is really a really unique papaya smell. I do wish it was a little more moisturizing, but I know the company didn't intend for everyone to use it as a lip balm. Anyway, really fun, old school product. I will probably pick up another tube at some …Read more

This stuff is insanely priced and makes outrageous claims for what I thought was a very bleh and basic moisturizer. I'm also not a huge fan of the rainbow iridescent packaging, which feels tacky. This might be someone's secret sauce, but it's not mine.

Lip Treatments - Glossier - Coconut Balm Dotcom

I find dry lips intolerable and have lip balm stashed EVERYWHERE. And, slowly but surely, this stuff has replaced all my other lip balms. I love the coconut scent. It is probably my favorite balm dotcom besides the rose. I don't always love coconut and rose, but Glossier really nailed it with product. It's subtle and not overpowering or sickeningly sweet.

I do not understand …

This is an excellent basic moisturizer and has become my go-to moisturizing primer for my normal dry skin. I don't use it a ton (because during the day I wear a moisturizing sunscreen) but when I go out at night, I moisturize my face with this before applying makeup. It feels great, is fragrance free, doesn't break me out, has decent ingredients (no mineral oil) and isn't too …Read more

This is a really nice product. It emulsifies really well, rinses clean, doesn't dry out your skin, and doesn't sting your naughty bits. I also like the smell, which is fresh and clean but not overpowering. I probably won't repurchase just because it's quite expensive for what it is and I prefer an oil-based non-drying fragrance-free bar of soap like Dr. Bronners or Dove. My …Read more
