BB Cream - MISSHA - M Magic Cushion SPF50+/PA+++

Nov/19/2015

I received this for free with a recent order in color 21. This color is a perfect match for my NC15 skin, shade 23 is ok but just a tiny bit too dark.

I originally thought that this would be just a BB cream in a cushion compact, but this is totally different from the usual Missha BB creams. The texture is a lot more fluid, yet still provides coverage. I do not need to wear a concealer …

Masks - MISSHA - Real Essential Sheet Mask - Coenzyme Q10

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2015

After using this mask (and being mostly unimpressed) I read the ingredients and found that alcohol was the 4th ingredient listed. I stay away from alcohol on my skin, not only for the damage it causes, but it also aggravates my dry areas.

This mask had a slight fragrance but was mostly undetectable when the mask was on. I did find that this moved around on my face quite a lot when …

Blush - Laura Geller New York - Baked Elements Blush - Siena

3.0

Nov/19/2015

This was part of a kit from QVC a year or so ago. In the pan this looks like a pretty peach, but when applied it is very pigmented and a very vibrant orange. I almost look sunburnt when I wear this color! I much prefer a more muted shade, so this does not get much wear from me unfortunately.

Laura Geller blushes are great value though, you do get a huge amount in the compact which …

Gels/ Soaps - MISSHA - Cotton White Shower Gel

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2015

I purchased this (without smelling it first) from the Missha website during a sale. I got a large bottle for about $5.00, so I definitely cannot complain about the price. The fluted bottle is quite feminine and pretty, and looks better than most shower gel bottles in the bathroom.

The scent though is something I am not overly fond of. I thought with the name Cotton White, that this …

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - LOC One and Done Shadow Stick in On Point

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2015

I have a sample of this from Birchbox. I had a choice of 2 colors of eyeshadow pencil in a recent box, and the only one left was On Point. On Point is advertised as a silvery taupe, but is more of a gold color although still very flattering on my NC15 skin and against my blue/green eyes.

The texture is very creamy and pigmented and this glides across my skin with no tugging. This …

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Box O'Powder Blush - Dandelion

Nov/19/2015

I purchased a sample size of this from Ebay after reading all the good reviews.

Dandelion really is the perfect blush for pale skin, it is a natural flush of color on my NC15 skin without looking artificial. In the packaging this did look very pale, almost like it would not show up on my skin, but I was very happy with this. It is a dusty pale pink, cool-toned, and I can detect a very …

Blush - theBalm Cosmetics - Frat Boy Shadow Blush

4.0

Nov/19/2015

This is a very pigmented blush, matte finish peachy-pink, that looks great on lighter skin tones. If this were less pigmented then I actually would like it a lot better, but this just takes so much time to carefully apply that it adds an extra 5 mins to my morning. If I apply this as I would my regular blush, this makes me look clown-like. I much prefer a sheer blush that I can sweep on with one …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2015

I had such high hopes for this product after reading all the good reviews. I purchased 5 sample sizes online rather than buying a full-sized bottle.

On the first application I noticed a couple of issues though. I applied all over my face, but within a few minutes this had migrated into my eyes causing some stinging and blurred vision. I also found that this does not sink into my skin …

Masks - Avene - Soothing Moisture Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2015

While this is a nice mask, I really do not see any benefits to my skin from using this regularly. Although my skin is dry on my cheeks and undereye area (and oily on my nose and chin) I have not seen a difference in hydration after using this a few times. I am tempted to use this as a thick moisturizer as I believe some other reviewers have done, as I might see some better results this way …Read more

Nov/19/2015

I received a sample of this from Birchbox. I love the scent, it kind of reminds me of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream (which I also love) so for me this is a pleasure to use. I use this when I have applied night creams to seal the moisture into my skin. I have very dry skin on my cheeks and undereye area, very oily nose and chin, and normal to dry skin on my forehead. I use this cream everywhere …Read more
