Masks - Paula's Choice - Rehydrating Moisture Mask

4.0

7 months ago

This is a product that I initially gave a 2 lippie rating back in March of 2018. I've come to like the product very much as a hydrating moisturizer when my skin gets irritated from prescription Retin-A. It's hydrating and non-irritating for when my skin peels when I've overdone my Retin-A. I still dislike the fact that it pills terribly but when I just put on a good layer of it …Read more

Foundations - Dior - Backstage Face and Body Foundation

If, like me, you like to really blend your foundation into the skin with a brush like Sigma F80, you might not like this. I received a deluxe sample with a recent Sephora order and was very excited to try it. Sadly, after 3 tries with three different moisturizers with sunscreen underneath, I'm going to throw it out. It was so bad that if I had been going to work those days I would have …Read more

Concealers - Laura Mercier - Secret Concealer

This concealer is just too emollient for me. Even at my age, with fine lines around my eyes, it just doesn't work because it creases like crazy and doesn't really cover well. Even if I powder it which I hate to do, it slides around. I'm finally throwing this out. I would rather use Estee Lauder double wear or Maybelline Fit Me concealers for my dark under eyes because both have …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara

2.0

Apr/19/2018

I use only waterproof mascara because nothing else holds the curl I work hard to achieve on my very long but very straight lashes. Like Better than Sex, I find the squared off brush difficult to use to tease out the smaller lashes in the corners of my eyes. The size of the brush makes it too cumbersome to bother with on bottom lashes. The formula is good, but the brush deposits too much …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Rocket Volum' Express Waterproof

I wear waterproof mascara because I have long but downward pointing lashes and I have to work really hard to create curved lashes with a curler. WP formulas are the only ones that hold curl. This was good at holding my lashes up but it took out the curve as it dried. It also doesn't create much volume. It's not bad but there is much better mascara out there like Maybelline Lash …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Total Temptation Waterproof Mascara

Jan/27/2018

Update Feb. 27, 2018: Upping this to 5 lippies. It's my go to mascara and that's saying a lot considering how many high-end and drugstore tubes of waterproof mascara I have on the go at any one time. I wear quite a lot of mascara because my lashes are long and it's now starting to go a bit dry probably because it's starting to empty out after using it almost every day …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - In Extreme Dimension Waterproof Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2018

I always wear waterproof mascara because my lashes are very long but downward pointing and I put quite a bit of time into curling them so whatever I use MUST hold the curl. What I didn't like about this was the large and unusually long brush. It's impossible for me to do the inner corners of my eyes and the lower lashes and I don't have small eyes. Even doing the upper lashes is …Read more

If you have straight lashes that need to be curled and you want to try this mascara, make sure you can return it. Not only will it pull the curl out within seconds, it also does very little for the lashes. I'm better off to curl my lashes and not wear any mascara than to put this on.

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Waterproof Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/09/2018

I use waterproof mascara because I have long lashes (thank you Lilash), but they are very straight and downward turning. Nothing holds the curl I work so hard to achieve with my Ciate curler than a waterproof formula. I bought this mascara because I love a smaller traditional brush but I just can't get the formula to work. After several months of trying it once or twice a week I'm …Read more

Skincare - Face - Avene - Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream

Jan/04/2018

This cream makes using prescription Retin-A possible for me. I love the results Retin-A gives me but the peeling and flaking are really annoying. If I use the Cicalfate every third or fourth day over a ceramide based serum and I tolerate the Retin-A on the other days with just a light moisturizer on top after leaving it on alone for an hour or two. This is what works best for me and gets me …Read more
