Sunscreen - Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare - Sheer Mineral Sun Spray SPF 50

5.0

Aug/28/2016

It's terrible, but I only recently started using sunscreen on a daily basis. I hated the way sunscreens would make my face feel greasy so I avoided them unless I knew I would be outdoors in the sun all day. Being that most days I am indoors at work and I try not to spend too much time in the sun unnecessarily, I thought I could get away with this. Almost every piece of information I've …Read more

Moisturizers - Belif - The True Cream Aqua Bomb

Aug/14/2016

I have combination skin with an oily T-zone, so in the mornings I prefer to use a water based/gel like moisturizer during the day along with my SPF. Opting for this type of moisturizer ensures I won't turn into a greaseball by midday. My preferred day time moisturizer prior to this was Amore Pacific's Moisture Bound Hydra Gel and loved it, but the price tag at $100 was heinous. Then …Read more

Mascara - SHISEIDO - Nourishing Mascara Base

This stuff is the holy grail of holy grails. I've been using Shiseido's Mascara Base since before it was reformulated, and let me tell you, nothing even comes CLOSE to how amazing this product is. I have tried HE and drugstore primers/bases alike, and compared to this, you may as well be wearing nothing. It not only gives lashes volume, but holds a curl like cement.

If you …

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sebium H2O Micellar Water

Jul/31/2016

After being a faithful Albolene user for 15 plus years, I decided to try Bioderma out. The main ingredient in Albolene is mineral oil, and while I have read enough articles about it being both harmful and harmless, I decided it wasn't worth the risk to continue using it if I could find an alternative with satisfactory performance. Enter Bioderma Sebium. One of the things that had me sold on …Read more

Moisturizers - CHANEL - Le Blanc Brightening Moisturizing Cream

Jul/27/2016

Ugh, this cream is terrible. Just a note: this is not to be confused with the Le Blanc Whitening Cream, although I'm sure that one is equally as terrible. I had a deluxe sample from a past purchase and received another with a more recent purchase. My first impression of this cream was the heinously strong perfume scent that would not dissipate. An hour after applying it, I could still smell …Read more

Cleansers - Boscia - Detoxifying Black Cleanser

Jul/27/2016

My introduction to this product was through a deluxe sized Beauty Insider sample from Sephora. I am a sucker for gimmicky products with tingly/warming sensations so that will always lure me in to at least try a product once. I ended up buying a whole bottle but was lured away by what I thought would be a better alternative because it was fragrance free, had an impressive list of ingredients and …Read more

Highlighters - CHANTECAILLE - Liquid Lumiere Anti-Aging Illuminator

5.0

Jul/24/2016

I'm surprised this hasn't been reviewed on MUA yet. This highlighter is right up there with the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops as my favorite liquid highlighter. I have 2 of the 3 available shades: Sheen (nude shimmer) and Brilliance (light gold shimmer), Sheen being my favorite of the two. The third shade, Luster, I would assume is for darker complexions but it is so coppery it almost …Read more

Highlighters - COVER FX - Custom Enhancer Drops

Jul/01/2016

Holy crap, these highlighters are so amazing! I have never really seen a highlighter that can be worn both as a subtle sheen and built up to slapping-the-scientists-in-the-International-Space-Station-across-the-face-with-your-glow levels. Usually after a certain point most highlighters start to look chalky if you use too much (not that I attempt to achieve this look often), but these Custom …Read more

Concealers - BECCA - Ultimate Coverage Concealing Creme

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/17/2016

This stuff is amazing. I don't typically like to wear a foundation on a daily basis, so I apply concealer to cover any dark spots or red areas on my face and sweep over it with a translucent powder. I needed a concealer that actually stays put and has good coverage to achieve my desired results. This stuff fits the bill perfectly because it has a tacky consistency but melts to the touch so …Read more

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation

Created with Sketch.

Jun/13/2016

Products like this are the reason why I am thankful for samples. I, like many other reviewers here, typically love Tarte products. I have several of their palettes, eyeliners and I love their translucent pressed powder. This stuff, however, was one of the worst foundations I've EVER tried. In the beginning I got suckered because of the cute packaging and the alluring sound of a …Read more
