Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2014

I just bought my second tube of this so I figured it was safe to write a review on it now. That one tube lasted me almost a year with everyday use! I use this primarily underneath my eyes, and it's creamy enough for that area and does not crease like some other creamy concealers. It also semi-sets itself so I can use less powder to set it (it takes a few moments for it to semi-set, so you …Read more

Powder - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2014

Pros: Shade selection (lots of colors available), not too powdery, long-wearing, very pigmented, can give good coverage for a powder foundation
Cons: Kind of challenging to apply at first, flimsy packaging

Overall I like this foundation. I normally reach for powder foundations on lazy days when don't feel like applying a ton of product but I still want to even out my face and …

Mascara - REVLON - Grow Luscious Mascara ] [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/17/2013

Pretty decent. Gives good volume and some length and definition. I think the best thing about this mascara is how my lashes feel after I take it off. Over time, I've noticed I've lost fewer lashes upon removal (if any), and the lashes are softer and "healthier". When I switch to other mascaras that are in my current rotation, my lashes feel drier and more prone to breakage. So …Read more

Toners - CLARINS - Toning Lotion (Alcohol Free) All

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2013

The few products that I use from Clarins have really impressed me, this toner being one of them. The packaging change to the round bottle is a bonus. I have bounced around the past few years between using a toner and not, and this product reminded me that my skin definitely benefits from using one, esp if it's formulated well. In order for a toner to work for me it must be alcohol free and …Read more

Styling Products - Joico - JOIGEL Styling Gel Medium Hold

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2011

Adding to the rave reviews, this gel is really good! I have tight curls and coils (so 3c/4a hair) and I like styling products that define them with some hold--not too light but not too strong, and doesn't leave hair with a crunch or product-ish feeling. So far this gel does this the best. Another plus is that it's silicone free, so it rinses out very well. I try not to shampoo often …Read more

Makeup Brushes - BECCA - Spot Concealer #32

Feb/15/2011

Perfect concealer brush for covering spots without screwing up the color of the surrounding skin. I just got this in the mail and used it today and am quite impressed. It's seems like it's well made and the synthetic bristles are easy to clean.This sells for $23, but I had a coupon code that took $3 off and free shipping. Would buy this again if I lost it or something like that.

Crème - BECCA - Stick Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2011

I generally prefer liquid foundations, but I really like using Becca Stick foundation because it matches my skin tone better than any product I've tried. The color I use is Syrup (MAC C7 for reference). Because this is a stick foundation, it can be challenging to work with at first, but I found that if I apply it on top of the Becca Luminous Skin Color (their tinted moisturizer) …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2011

I have been using this product for a couple of years now, and decided to make a review on it. Please note that this product is not meant to be your main cleanser, this is for makeup removal, a pre-cleanse, if you have normal/combination skin. So for that purpose, it's really good. A small amount is needed and it foams up big with water. This is how I use it: first I use an eye makeup remover …Read more

Treatments - Creative Nail Design - Solar Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2010

I am very pleased with this product. I apply Solar Oil underneath my nails and onto my cuticles about twice a day or so (and after I finish my mani). Usually after I have washed my hands [or after shower]. I think that with oil, it's best to apply after washing hands, since oil is an occlusive moisturizer (meaning it seals in moisture/water that's already present). After applying the …Read more
