Brows - COVERGIRL - EASY BREEZY BROW Shape + Define Brow Mascara

4.0

To me this seems almost like a dupe for Glossier's Boy Brow. I got the light shade, and it usually works pretty well for me. I definitely have to comb through again with another brow brush, though. It's not easy-breezy enough to swipe on and get a clean look on its own! It can come out perfect sometimes and gloppy other times

Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury - Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips

5.0

24 days ago

I have this in Pillow Talk, and I like it better than the more opaque matte lipstick or lip liner. The sheer, toned-down pink color goes from barely there to "my lips, but more sophisticated." (I think it depends a lot on the lighting. Sometimes I see it and feel like I need more color. More often, I think it's perfect.) Glossy but not sticky, and very moisturizing, Lasts longer …Read more

Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Color The World Lipstick

1.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

Would you buy this lipstick if NO RETURNS/NO EXCHANGES was splashed all over the website, instead of tucked away where it takes multiple clicks to get to it? That is the question. I'm skeptical of this company, despite the virtuous image it cultivates. Before you order, just know that you will be stuck with whatever you buy. The online ads ("75,000+ happy customers!") paint a …Read more

BB Cream - Juice Beauty - Stem Cellular CC Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

My main reason for buying this was my eternal search for a mineral sunscreen that doesn't contain silicone. If not for that, I would have been too put off by the odd smell to even try it. All Juice Beauty products have an unusual scent that reminds me of wine and/or green apples. But it really does fade quickly, and whatever it is, it doesn't seem to irritate me. This sunscreen is maybe …Read more

Blush - Alima Pure - Loose Mineral Blush - Leigh (Luminous Shimmer)

4.0

I have worn Alima Pure Beige 2 foundation for years. I always wanted to find the right Alima blush, but experienced multiple online ordering failures. Mimosa and Apple blossom were too light; others were too obvious. I was afraid to even try the Luminous Shimmer ones, because I can't stand sparkles. I encountered Leigh in a store, and it kind of works for me, if I use a light hand. It's …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Lipstick - Afghan Red

5.0

11 months ago

I've been drawn to this color for literally years, but had silly thoughts like, "Oh, but I can't do red. I'm not exotic enough for a color called Afghan Red." If only I'd read the reviews! I'm fairly pale and cool toned, and this color is enlivening without being brazen. It brings out the green in my eyes better than all manner of purple eyeliners. Great for …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster

3.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

I'm teetering on the fence about this. I really want it to work, so much that I decided to try it in spite of the dimethicone. Which, let's face it, is always trouble for me. But in this product it's pretty far down on the list, so I thought it might be okay.

Well, the cream has a nice texture and an inoffensive smell. It feels good, and I don't need any other …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - 10% Niacinamide Booster

4.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

I'm 65 and still struggle with sensitive oily skin, mild acne, and bad reactions to many products . These reactions can take the form of either the breakout, or the rosacea flare, variety. Paula's 2% BHA liquid was the first product that really helped my clogged pores -- a huge game changer. So I've tried a lot of her products over the years, but I can't use many of them. (I …Read more

Moisturizers - Desert Essence - Organic Jojoba Oil

May/03/2018

Pretty sad how long it took me to figure out it was the packaging that put me off this stuff at first. The bottle is a bit leaky and unglamorous. It's hard to get the right amount, and one of the keys is not using too much. But finally, it has been doing for me what the glowing reviews promise. With continued use, it has definitely reduced the bumpy feeling of clogged pores (maybe even …Read more

Cleansers - Paula's Choice - CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2018

I agree with the reviewer just below me that it's A LITTLE WEIRD that Paula moved from Triclosan (now banned) in this product to .5% salicylic acid. Didn't she always say salicylic acid was pointless in a cleanser, because it doesn't stay on long enough? If there was a word of explanation, I did not catch it. But I just can't give this a negative review. It's a pretty …Read more
