Sunscreen - Australian Gold - Botanical Tinted Sunscreen Mineral Lotion SPF 50

This sunscreen is a miracle worker if you have oily skin! This is a lightly tinted all mineral sunscreen that has SPF 50, and is under $15 for a large tube. Because of the tint, it doesn't have a white cast, although the tint is slightly on the peachy side. It's subtle enough that I can wear it on its own, but it takes a couple minutes for the sunscreen to absorb. My favorite part about …Read more

Moisturizers - Drunk Elephant - Protini Polypeptide Cream

Not many Drunk Elephant products have impressed me, but I really liked this moisturizer. I have combo-oily skin and this works for me all year round. It's light enough that I could wear it in the summer, but also hydrating enough that I can wear it in the winter paired with my usual face oil. I don't have a sensitivity to silicone, but the texture of this feels like a gel-cream that …Read more

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

Oct/03/2018

I wanted to love this so badly, but I just don't. I have combination/oily skin and it just feels like a greasy mess. I adore the finish and how it looks right after I first apply it - it's very creamy, blends effortlessly, and makes my skin look flawless without looking too heavy. But just a couple hours later, it looks and feels greasy and just plain uncomfortable. I only used this in …Read more

Blush - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Lip Blush Hyydrating Lip and Cheek Sheer Colour

I'm surprised at the negative review, because I absolutely love the lip blushes. I have three shades - Orange Explosif, Rouge Captivant, and Teasing Pink. They are a sheer but buildable lightweight cheek and lip stain that dries to a matte finish, giving a light stain. For my oily skin and dry lips, they truly work as multi-use products. They stay on my cheeks and feel like nothing, and they …Read more

Loose Powders - Milk Makeup - Blur + Set Matte Loose Setting Powder

Aug/29/2018

The main reason I rated this a 3 is because of the packaging. I can see how the intention behind the packaging was design was to make it more travel friendly and clean, but there are a few flaws that make me not want to reach for it regularly. The snap lid under the screw top lid definitely snaps shut securely, but it's also very difficult to open. I have to spend more time than I'd …Read more

I wanted to love this mascara so badly, but it just doesn't work for me. Having stick straight lashes, I usually can only use waterproof mascaras to keep the curl, which can be quite damaging on my lashes if I'm not careful about removal. I was exciting to try a tubing mascara to make the removal process easier. I'll start with the good- It DOESN'T SMUDGE, no matter how humid …Read more

Mascara - Etude House - Dr. Mascara Fixer for Perfect Lash

May/04/2018

I think this is meant to be a mascara topper, but I use it as a primer. It's so effective at making my stick straight Asian lashes hold their curl, and adds some extra length and volume so that any mascara I apply on top looks better. I don't find this any more difficult to remove than any other waterproof mascara, so I just remove with an oil cleanser or bi-phase eye makeup remover …Read more

Eye Primer - wet n wild - PhotoFocus Eyeshadow Primer

Sep/29/2017

This has become an HG primer for me. For the price - $5, or less when it's on sale - this is absolutely amazing. It beats out all my other higher end primers like UDPP, TFSI, and even the NARS primer. I love that it's in a squeeze tube so I can get every little bit out. I apply just a little bit to my lids and it keeps all eyeshadow on my oily lids all day - I've worn makeup for …Read more

I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation, and also a little bit confused at first. I'm used to stick foundations being medium or high coverage, and this definitely has light coverage, no matter how much I swipe on. I tried using this with a dense kabuki brush and it didn't seem to blend very well, so I have just been spreading it out with my fingers and have been really like the …Read more

Aug/25/2017

I've been wearing this every day for a little over a week now and I'm honestly pretty disappointed. I thought with its waterproof claims, that it would be long-wearing and prevent my shadows from creasing. So far, used with different eyeshadows, cream and powder, my eyeshadows will start creasing after just 4 hours. I was hoping it would be a good drugstore option for some of the more …Read more
