Sunscreen - Algenist - Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50

Jan/05/2016

I think I've finally found my HG sunscreen! My derm wanted me to start using SPF 50 with my retinoid, but it seems the higher the SPF, the greasier the sunscreen. So I searched and searched and spent way too much on too many different products. I read the reviews on this one on Sephora and for all the reviews that state that it's made for dry skin - phooey! Perfect satin finish, and I …Read more

I'm cautiously optimistic about my nails after using this for several weeks. Some, but not all, of my nails were a peeling, breaking hot mess. Nail Envy did nothing, NailTek Intensive II did nothing, despite working wonders before. So I bought this and have been using it regularly - one coat a day followed by a nice cuticle massage with Mango Mend. My nails are hard, but not brittle. The …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

This was recommended to me as a matte foundation that wouldn't accentuate the wrinkles on my forehead like Colorstay does. And it doesn't. But it also doesn't keep me matte throughout the day. On top of that, it wears off very patchy and ugly. I just couldn't get on board with this foundation at all. I do like the packaging, though!

Jun/28/2015

I've been on the hunt for something that can stand up against my uber-oily T-zone without accentuating the lines in my forehead. Colorstay is like cement on my face - it doesn't go anywhere. I LOVE it, except that the lines on my forehead are so pronounced when I use it. Enter Ready, Set, Gorgeous. I LOVE this stuff! It doesn't keep my nose completely matte, but it's also not …Read more

I was wary of this product because of how thin the consistency is. I usually like full coverage matte foundations, but this one is great for evening out my skin tone when my skin is actually behaving itself. I wasn't expecting it to control my oilies considering the slightly silicone-y feel when applying it but...I'll be ding-danged. It works extremely well. It's a great …Read more

It's pretty rare that I use a lipstick up, being that I have so many. But this one takes the cake. It's a gorgeous, universal pink color and the feel on the lips is amazing. The packaging is really nice as well. It lasts a pretty long while for not being a longwear lipstick. The price is a little steep, but I'll pay it for this outstanding product. I love it!

Mascara - LORAC - Cobra Mascara

I got this mascara as part of a set that included an eyeshadow, liquid liner pen, and the Behind the Scenes Eye Primer (really the whole reason I got it - it was a great deal!). I didn't really know what to make of the brush. As another reviewer pointed out, the product sort of collects in the middle of the brush, and you can't really use the sides to put product on the lashes. But …Read more

Shampoo - Clairol - Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo - Blonde & Silver

I really have no fight with this product. I'd been using the John Freida tone correcting shampoo until it became increasingly harder to find, except for the "cleansing treatment" that's apparently only found at Walmart. I loved the fragrance of that, as I do with most John Freida products, but alas. This was my next option. So off to Sally's I went. I sniffed it to see …Read more

I can't believe I have never used this! And to date, I haven't used this on its own yet. I bought it in a lighter shade than my skintone to mix with the Revlon Colorstay that I have that's too dark. It mixes beautifully with the Colorstay to make a finish that isn't too matte, but stays put. I can't wait to try this on its own. I have to say that the packaging leaves a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Wexler Dermatology - MMPi Skin Regenerating Serum

Jan/08/2015

When I worked at BWW, I would constantly wander over to the Wexler display and put this on my hand - I was obsessed with the way it made my skin feel so smooth. But the price was just way out of my budget. Finally, the price dropped on the website and I had a $10 off coupon - perfect! I actually just used the last bit of my jar tonight. I've been using it recently because I've had some …Read more
