Makeup Brushes - SHISEIDO - Perfect Foundation Brush

Feb/03/2016

In mineral makeup circles, the dense, short-bristled flat-top brush is considered a holy grail. Something about the design makes it easier to smooth and buff that loose powder foundation over your face, cover your flaws effectively and "fill in" large pores. Some brushes have come close to that, such as the flat-tops from Lumiere, Alima, Sigma and Lauress. But the Shiseido Perfect …Read more

Eyeliner - LUSH - Lush Independent black eyeliner

Created with Sketch.

Jan/15/2013

I'm a fan of Lush's products in general, but the eyeliner misses the mark. The bottle is cute - it reminds me of an inky eyedropper. Unfortunately, that's where the positives end. My biggest gripe is with the applicator itself - if you like a very thin line I suppose it could work, but otherwise the the point is too fine. It also doesn't pick up enough pigment so there …Read more

Shampoo - LUSH - The Blonde

Oct/25/2012

I'm sad this was discontinued. I don't have blonde hair (far from it!) but the citrus oils really cleansed and balanced my oily hair. The Blonde was a perfect choice for people who have greasy hair, although it wasn't marketed that way. I'm hoping it will be reborn as a retro product.

Powder - Unlisted Brand - Buff'd Cosmetics - Concealing Mineral Foundation

Sep/28/2012

I've been using various mineral makeup brands for more than six years now (thanks, captivating Bare Minerals infomercial!) but this is the only mineral foundation I've repurchased and continually use throughout the year. In summer, the added kaolin clay does a great job of drawing out midday oil. In winter, I apply fewer layers so that my skin doesn't become too dry. The foundation …Read more

I like this brush even better then the Alima #25. The head is much smaller, so it fits into 5 gram jars with ease. It's also incredibly dense so it provides quick and full coverage easily. I also like the short handle for the ease of manuevering the brush around my face. I have tried many flat-tops and I don't think anything can beat this beauty.

Makeup Brushes - Alima Pure - Foundation Brush 25

I agree with Liz - this is one amazing brush. It is so soft and dense, it feels like velvet on my face. It's also completely vegan, as it is made with synthetic bristles. It's kind of a cross between a kabuki and and a flat-top - personally I think it has the best of both worlds. It gives fast, even and full coverage, and I notice that my mineral powder is not flying all over the place …Read more

I'm glad that so many people love EM, because this formula didn't work for me at all. It just will not last the whole day, no matter what I did. When i first put it on, it looks great, but during the day it just fades away. I do however, like the clear jar that it came in - looks very nice and professional. Oh well, I still want to try the intensive formula because accordingly to the …Read more

Cleansers - Olay - Clarifying Daily Facials for Combo/Oily Skin [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/24/2006

I FLOVE this product. I've been using it ever since the first daily facials formula came out. Now I've moved on the clarifying version, and I've never looked back. Once and awhile I've strayed, but I have always returned. These leave my skin feeling smooth, clean and fresh. It's also helped to calm my break-out prone skin. As long as Olay keeps making these, I will …Read more

When I was younger I used to wear this makeup all of the time. I like how the sponge is stored in another part of the compact, and man is that sponge strong and durable! The powder was fine and then it started to turn orange on me! The MAC lady told me that C4 was my colour but it was slightly off on my skin tone. I could've handled it but the orange!? I looked horrible so I won't …Read more

I really really wanted this to be my HG because of the raves here and because the customer service is outstanding. But, this makeup broke me out and it also was pretty horrible at controlling oil. Light warm was a fine enough match I guess, and it did hold up during the day. It's good thing many online mineral makeup companies offer samples. Otherwise I'd have been out $18 (American …Read more
