I really like this. When I moved to WA state 4 months ago from So Cal my skin went berserk and I started breaking out really bad. I started using acne washes to combat the break out which in turn dried out my skin. The flakes made it almost impossible to wear foundation or concealer. The area under my eyes was the worst because makeup made those areas look majorly crepey. Even tho I have oily …Read more

i have oily dehydrated acne-prone skin. i got this because of the "antibacterial" aspect. maybe for someone with normal non-acne prone skin this would be a good facewash but on me it was bad.....after one week of daily usage I broke out in small-medium size whiteheads ALL over. on top of the whiteheads, I also had major clogs. it was so bad. i finally got it cleared after switching …Read more

golden neutral is the best match i have ever found for my skintone. im nc25 light-medium with clear olive/yellow undertones. this gave me medium coverage and looked amazing on my skin upon initial application. however after wearing it for 2 days straight i started noticing bumps all over my face. so i stopped wearing makeup for a few days and the bumps went away...tried the foundation again after …Read more

i picked up this oil after i ran out of my beloved rosehip oil. rosehip oil converted me and made me firm believer in using facial oils over chemically laden moisturizers. however within the first two days of using this as i would normally, my skin began to feel tight, dry, and super oily! totally opposite effects rosehip had on my skin!!! then came the acne....omg....i had major clogged pores …Read more

i bought this because I needed a summer foundation. Something that is lightweight but with decent coverage because I typically love full coverage matte foundations but cannot wear those during the summer. I find this foundation meets all my needs for the hot months in LA. It has a runny consistently making it easy to blend. The two ways I have used to apply it is with a damp BB sponge and RT …Read more

Aug/15/2014

This is my first Anastasia brow product and I'm already super impressed and need to go back to try out the brow powder duo. My brows stays put all day (8+hrs) and looks better than ever(I am a brow girl for sure). I use to use Loreal's brown cream liner from the HIP line for my brows but this one blows that one waaaay out of the park. Loreal's had too much of a red tone. Because of …Read more

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Grapeseed Oil

Jul/11/2014

I bought this in the brand Life Flo. After my amazing experience using organic rosehip oil as a night serum/moisturizer, I wanted to venture and try out more oils. This one caught my eye because it is geared towards oily/acne-prone-sensitive skin. Unfortunately, this is most likely the culprit behind my recent unexplainable break out. My skin was doing so well and when I ran out of my rosehip oil …Read more

Jul/08/2014

I bought my jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil from Sprouts. I believe the brand is Natures Way. Currently using it as a makeup remover and it working great for that. I use to use the clear red foaming cleanser by Clean n Clear to remove a face full of makeup( I always wear full coverage foundation when I wear makeup) but that never took off everything because I would always see remnants of …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Waterproof Mascara

5.0

Jul/04/2014

This mascara really works for me. I originally tried the Voluminous waterproof in carbon black. the formula on that one was a lot thicker and made my lashes thicker and longer. However it was too wet on initial application and would always be a complete smudge mess within 3-4hours. Didn't like it and went on to try other new releases. I recently ran out and decided to pick this one up. This …Read more

Jul/04/2014

I love this palette. I have a slight addiction for neutral palettes and had already included the previous Nakeds to my collection. It was a matter of time before I knew this guy was going to come home with me. I'd swatched the colors a couple of times while browsing through Sephora but had always invested my cash towards Essentials that I'd be out of. I knew I'd get a Sephora …Read more
