Nov/06/2015

This is truly a "water" foundation, very liquid-y and thin, but provides great coverage! I got it on pre-order with the double-ended foundation brush with the flat-top and angled kabuki. I must say though, not a fan of the brush for applying this foundation. It really seems to suck all the foundation up so quickly (probably because it's so watery) so I was having to use a ton of …Read more

Sunscreen - Kiss My Face - Face Factor SPF30 Sunscreen

Jul/28/2015

The ingredients in this are almost identical to the Kiss My Face Face 3-in-1 Sensitive Side SPF30 (aka Oat Protein SPF 30) Sunscreen (4oz)... except you get half as much product with the Face + Neck Factor (2oz). The only real difference I see is the "face" one has Glyceryl Stearate SE and the other one instead has Stearic Acid. Glyceryl Stearate SE has a higher comedogenic rating (3) …Read more

Jul/28/2015

The ingredients in this are almost identical to the Kiss My Face Face + Neck Factor SPF30 (2oz)... except you get twice as much product with this one (4oz). The only real difference I see is the "face" one has Glyceryl Stearate SE and this one instead has Stearic Acid. Glyceryl Stearate SE has a higher comedogenic rating (3) than Stearic Acid (2) and I have found personally that I do …Read more

I loved this eyeliner in Fancy Blue... at first. I even went back and got it in Black since that seemed so popular as it was always sold out. I love how bright cobalt blue and MATTE Fancy Blue is. But unfortunately, I realized it flakes throughout the day, I will get specks of it on my cheeks throughout the day because it starts flaking. Even when I don't wear any mascara with it. I never …Read more

Eye Primer - wet n wild - Fergie Take on the Day Eyeshadow Primer [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

fromaryana

May/26/2015

I found this to work very well as a primer in terms of preventing creasing and intensifying the eyeshadow color. It definitely did that with flying colors - no creasing, at the end of the day the eyeshadow looked the same as when I first applied it. The consistency is not the best though, it's hard to get an even, smooth application using my fingers. I will try with a brush next time to see …Read more

Eyes - Inglot Cosmetics - Duraline

May/26/2015

Oh man, sorry to say this is another recent disappointment for me from Inglot. I was so excited to use this to transform any eyeshadow into a liquid liner that I could apply with an eyeliner brush. Unfortunately, both loose shadows I tried ended up looking much darker as a result of mixing them with duraline. It made the colors noticeably darker, even after they had completely dried. So …Read more

May/26/2015

I used to think this cream was only for the body, but found out it is also officially recommended for use on the face as well. I have been looking for a rich moisturizer that I can use on my acne-prone skin. I use retin-A micro which makes my skin pretty dry/flaky but for years I would just use it without any additional moisturizer at night because I am so paranoid about breaking out. My skin …Read more

Mar/29/2015

I was looking for a hydrating gel type product to replace my Face Reality Hydrating Emulsion since that was expensive ($22 for 2oz) and I wanted to find something fragrance-free and with less questionable preservatives. This is one of the products I tried, and I was disappointed. I did not find it to be hydrating for my dry skin. Once it set I felt no added hydration at all. It also has some …Read more

This review is for Essence XXXL Volume Gel-Look Plumping Topcoat. I found this at ULTA in a special display with some other new Essence products. I love it!!! So surprised, I even like it more than my favorite OPI topcoat.

I used it over some (real polish) nail wraps from goscratchit. I used my usual OPI topcoat on a couple fingers to compare and could definitely tell a difference …
