I was very ambitious and bought the 2 for 1 deal (brush included) from QVC. I've finished one and can't believe I still have one to go through.

I'm have pretty fair skin but Fair was too light. I also thought the powder was very dry, not creamy at all, and really accentuated any dry patches I have. The coverage was very good but the lasting power was weak. You also need …

Toners - Pixi - Glow Tonic

Jul/31/2018

I bought a bottle and immediately saw results. My skin looked glowy and healthy, my pores looked smaller, and I wasn't breaking out/clogging like I was. However, because it's pricey and there are other glycolic toners on the market for cheap, I decided to use something else (The Ordinary toner) when the bottle was empty.

Big mistake.

Once I finished The Ordinary …

Primer/ Corrector - ORIGINS - Original Skin Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer with Willowherb

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/30/2018

This primer did a great job of filling in my pores and keeping me matte, and the cooling effect is fun (especially in the summer) but really just a gimmick.

The packaging is the only complaint I have about this. It never dispensed the mousse-like texture evenly. It always just sputtered out of the opening of the bottle.

Toners - Deciem - The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

I thought this would be a cheaper dupe for the Pixi Glow Tonic (which I loved) since it's only about $7 for 8 oz but I should've known better--if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The Ordinary toner is fine but I didn't really see the same results I saw with the Pixi one. With the Glow Tonic, I saw results immediately, and my skin looked clear, plumper, and my pores looked …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation

Jul/06/2018

Lightweight, looks so natural and skin-light, and doesn't cake up no matter how much I apply. I wouldn't use if you were very oily because it does provide a nice dewy finish. It's also not buildable and the coverage is light, so I only use it when it's a good skin day or it's very humid out because of how light it is. I do not use the sponge it came with because it's …Read more

Cleansers - Pixi - Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse

Jun/20/2018

What a disappointing product. First of all, the packaging is bulky and deceptive; there is far less product in here than you would think. And I went through this quickly because the balm does not do a good job of removing makeup. It could not remove my waterproof liquid eyeliner. I had to keep dipping into the jar, which caused water to get into the jar, and it was all just so unhygienic. The …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick

Feb/01/2018

As many others have said, these aren't really matte (more satin) and never dry down. The formula is thick for a liquid lip product, and isn't actually liquid, it's more of a cream. It reminds me of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in texture but not in formula. I didn't think it lasted at all on my lips, and they are not transfer proof.

It has a sweet smell but the taste is …

Sure this powder is cheap but it's not as finely-milled as I want my loose powders to be. Therefore, I think it's hard to shake out of the sifter and it ends up being very messy. It looks too thick and cakey on my face, and I don't think it does anything to prolong the wear of my makeup. In fact, I think my makeup looks pretty bad after I set it with this powder.

For …

If I could give this zero lippies, I would. I really tried to make this work but it is impossible. I've tried it on top of different primers and even without primer. I have applied it with fingers, various foundation brushes, an a beauty blender but it is thick and tough to blend. And for something so thick, you think there'd be better coverage! It's on the light side, and …Read more

Liquid - GUERLAIN - Meteorites BABY GLOW Light-Revealing Sheer Makeup SPF 25

This is a beautiful product. It's somewhere between a tinted moisturizer and a light-coverage foundation so I use it on good skin days. It does a great job of evening skin, and giving me, well, a nice, healthy glow without being cakey or looking like obvious makeup. 1.5-2 pumps applied with a damp Beauty Blender will give me the desired coverage/look I want (I don't think this is …Read more
