I was pleasantly surprised by this set. I bought the color "apricot" at my CVS for 50% off so I figured "why not?".

I am NC20-25 in MAC, and a slight yellow undertone in my skin, but I tend to lean more towards cooler colors. The color pay off and texture is really good, and I really like how it's a 3-in-1 product. Plus, the shade of bronzer and highlighter …

Cleansers - Nuance by Salma Hayek - Chamomile Facial Cream Cleanser

Jun/11/2014

I really like this cleanser. I normally remove my makeup first before cleansing, so I can't attest to how this removes makeup on its own, but I love how mild it is and the smell is wonderful. It cleans your skin without stripping it and washes away cleanly without leaving weird residue.

I am really liking this line quite a bit. I think the price point is generally good across the …

I am so glad I found this line. I have thick, coarse, curly hair and I have A LOT of it. My main issue is that at the nape of my neck the hair is slightly coarser than on top of my head, and so it tends to get frizzier than the rest of my hair.

I use this in conjunction with jojoba oil and a leave-in hair cream and use this as the last step in the process to hold the curl. I let my …

Feb/28/2014

I read an online review about this and decided to try it. Purchased it at my local Ulta and it had a "try it for free" coupon attached (mail in rebate) so I figured I didn't have much to lose. It runs about $10 for 5 ounces (compared to Origins Clean Energy, my old favorite, which is $25 for about 6 ounces.

The eclos cleanser comes in a pump style bottle, and the oil …

Feb/01/2014

I bought this for my boyfriend after I gave him a sample I received from Sephora. It smells SO GOOD on him. I love that when I'm close to him I can smell it on him but it's not overpowering by any means.

I think that this could even work as a unisex fragrance but I have the women's version of hanae mori (since he bought me a bottle of it as a gift) so I wear that …

This is honest to goodness my HG black liner. I got a full size sample of this through Birchbox and then decided to purchase other colors.

This is the ONLY, and I repeat, the ONLY liner I have managed to have stay on my waterline for longer than half a day. Before I was using Guerlain's eye kohl powder, which is very good and has until now given me the longest wear on my …

This stuff is amazing. It's dirt cheap, moisturizes incredibly well, and makes my skin incredibly soft.

I MOSTLY use it for my hands. I work in a dental clinic so I'm constantly washing my hands all day when I change my gloves so in the winter my hands get very dry (a few years ago it was so bad the backs of my hands were cracking). This stuff eliminates that problem for me …

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2013

I really like this sponge quite a bit. I do not own a beauty blender (I normally apply my foundation with my fingers or with a flat stippling brush) so I cannot compare to that. However, I really liked how this applied my foundation. I had to wet it and do a bit of squeezing with my hand to get the water out but I don't mind that much. The final effect was very good as it applied my …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam Gaga [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/23/2011

This is such a great color and the formula is great. If you're not a fan of the bright pink look a great way to wear this is by applying MAC's sublime culture lipliner all over a moisturized lip (dry lips won't work as well). Then applying this over that in a light layer which makes it look more of a beigy pink shade. Then apply a sheer gloss over it and voila! Perfect neutral lip …Read more

I bought this in the color Red Dahlia and I LOVE it. It's SO moisturizing and it gives a sheer wash of color (not my lips are not very pigmented so when I apply this it gives them a sheer, rosey hue to them). It looks very natural on and its perfect for the "no-makeup" looks or when you're feeling like a jeans/tshirt day, or even when you have a very dramatic eye look and you …Read more
