Blush - MILANI - Minerals Blush - Luminous [DISCONTINUED]

NC30 here and this blush doesn't really show up on my skin unless I pile it on. And when I do, it shows up as this chalky and unnatural pink that's not at all flattering against my skin. The texture is very smooth and blendable, but it lacks pigmentation. If you're looking for cheap but great drugstore blushes, try Rimmel. Their peach blush is amazing

Styling Products - TRESemmé - Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2011

This is a staple product in my hair routine. I love this heat protectant. It smells amazing, it works great at protecting my hair from flat ironing every morning, and it doesn't leave my hair greasy, sticky, or weighed down. I love the packaging, it's super user friendly and the spray pump sprays out a fine and even mist. It's super cheap too, under $4 at Target. I hope they never …Read more

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Baked Pyramid Matte Bronzer - Tan

I don't consider myself tanned (NC30-NC35) but this bronzer didn't show up on my face at all. Its smooth but it can get a bit chalky. I couldn't use it as a bronzer, but I do use this in the summer as a setting powder on top of my TM. I wouldn't repurchase since PF has much better bronzers out there.

Toners - Neutrogena - Alcohol-Free Toner

Jan/22/2011

I like this toner a lot. It removes any foundation that I have left on my face after washing, and it retains the moisture on my face. I don't really care for the smell, but it's not offensive or anything. It does leave my face a little sticky, but after a couple of minutes, the stickiness goes away a little. It doesn't burn or irritate my face at all, and I have not broken out from …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad "Coffee Bean" [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/16/2011

Only the bottom 2 darker colors actually show up on my lids. I'm NC30, the highlight cream shade and the slightly darker cement shade just blend right into my skin. The 2 colors that do show up are gorgeous thought. For day time wear, I mix the darker shade with the lighter shades in this quad to tone down the intensity, and that works great. I would not repurchase though, because there are …Read more

Eyeliner - REVLON - Colorstay Eyeliner

4.0

Jan/16/2011

I switch between this and the almay amazing lasting liner, it just depends on which one is on sale when I buy it. I do prefer the almay one over this because the almay one is softer and doesn't skip on my top lid like the revlon one does. I use it in black, and its a pretty dark black. It lasts for 6 hours or so with primer, then it starts to melt off and smudge in the corners of my eyes. I …Read more

Powder - bareMinerals - Original Foundation

Jan/16/2011

I hate to admit it, but I actually love the bare minerals foundation. Its expensive for the amount, but I find that with daily use, a jar lasts me about a year. I don't use this by itself because I find that it enhances the dry spots on my face and that it enhances my pores too. But, I absolutely love using this to set my liquid foundations. Liquid foundations (other than revlon colorstay) …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Essence of Beauty - Dual Use Eye Shadow Brush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2011

I absolutely love this brush and I use it everyday when I do my makeup. I use the fluffy wide end to highlight my browbone and it works great for that purpose. The wide end is soft and dense and it distributes the highlight perfectly on my brow bone. I also use this end to blend out the harshlines between my crease and highlight because the brush is large and soft enough for that purpose. I use …Read more

Cleansers - KANEBO - Naive Cleansing Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/04/2011

This is now called the Kracie naive deep cleansing oil. With that said, I really really like it. I own both the olive oil one (green bottle like in the picture above) as well as the orange oil one (orange bottle). They both work the same for me, but when I bought it, the green one is $1 more than the orange one ($6). I was able to get this at a local Japanese shop. I have used the Shiseido …Read more
