I've bought this foundation twice; however, I think I may need to find another one. Initially, I loved this foundation. The application is water-y and lightweight. The initial finish was perfect for my skintone and I loved the "dewy" finish of this foundation. However, for each bottle, about halfway through using this I would notice that the foundation made my skin orange …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - the sponge

Feb/17/2016

I've tried a dupe for the beauty blender (the SoniaKashuk beauty blender), and I was not impressed. I decided to take the plunge and spend 20USD for this sponge. However, on a side note, some websites sell the original beautyblender in a 2-pack for 30USD.
It's great for application, blends out my foundation and concealer. Wash/Rinsing it is kind of annoying, but what can you do? …

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips - Custom Bronzer Blush and Eye Shadow

Feb/17/2016

As others have mentioned, I would not recommend this as a bronzer. It's too shimmery/sparkle-y. I mainly used each strip as a different color for my eyeshadow, and the top part is fun for a shimmery inner corner highlight. You probably won't run out of this product, so no need to repurchase. If you like shimmery eyeshadows, and like to play around with bronze colors for the summer, this …Read more

Feb/17/2016

Apparently, this product has received Allure's "Best In Beauty" Award. The hype around the launch of The Honest Company's makeup line was huge. The line promises to use natural ingredients and nonirritating agents.
I was excited to try some of their products, and was able to order a "bundle" for 50USD from their website. The full-price of this product by itself …

Mascara - Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Lash Boosting Mascara

The concept of this mascara is wonderful. Finding natural makeup is not an easy task within the drugstore aisles. It boasts to be 100% natural and have "lash-boosting" effects. The packaging explains that the "lash-boosting" effects are meant to condition the lashes.
I bought this on a whim because my local drugstore, CVS, was having a 40% off sale on the physicians …

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Marker eyeliner

Sep/09/2014

I received this eyeliner as a free gift with my purchase of the L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara years ago. I used to use it as my go-to winged liner marker. Once you learn how to use the shape of the marker, it becomes easier to use for winged-liner. The staying power is almost nonexistent, so you'd have to layer something else under or over it. As another reviewer mentioned, storing the …Read more

Sep/09/2014

I've had this product for 3 years, and it still hasn't come close to running out! It will certainly last you awhile, and I should probably buy another one for hygiene purposes. I love the metal-rollerball. It's so refreshing to roll on your face. The concealer itself is just a lightweight brightening concealer. It's not thick enough to cover dark circles, and I haven't …Read more

Sep/09/2014

I first bought this product after seeing many vloggers on Youtube rave about them. I decided to pick up Crème Brulee because I was looking for a nude gloss-type item. This color suits my Half Caucasian/Half Japanese skintone perfectly. I cannot say that about many nudes. I wouldn't wear this everyday, but it's nice paired with a smokey-eye or winger-liner look for a night out on the …Read more

Sep/09/2014

I bought this product after hearing so many great reviews from beauty bloggers that I followed at the time. It's a nice shimmery duo, that lasts awhile! (I'd recommend ELF's $1 Eye primer to go under it though to last longer) I used to put the darker brown shade across my lids on special occasions, just using my finger. A great no-brainer eyeshadow. My skin is too dark for the …Read more

Sep/09/2014

I first heard about this product through Michelle Phan's "How to Look Like Miranda Kerr". She used it as a face highlight as well as an inner-corner highlight. I'd been searching for a highlight that was not pink-based for quite sometime. I think that they must've reformulated this luminizer because I found it on Amazon for $13! So cheap! It will last me a long time. If I …Read more
