Cleansers - ORIGINS - Modern Friction Cleansing Oil

Although the bottle is beautiful to look at, the steps to transform this oil into milk are too tedious and it doesn't always work (activate) in order to remove the most eye makeup. Cotton pads and Q-tips still showed mascara and liner residue after two dry & wet passes and my eyes hurt by then — can't be that env friendly. It also feels incredibly oily, hard to get rid of, and the …Read more

Toners - Mizon - AHA & BHA Daily Toner

My HG toner, no other one makes your skin or routine feel the same. It's balancing, moisturizing and cleaning your face in preparation for acids all at once — best way to apply this is to put it in your palms and pat it into your skin. Wake up with supple, radiant and "poreless" skin.

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Dermedicine Vitamin C 6000 w/ Retinol

I think this cost my sister a cute $20 on Gilt because she literally mentioned it, asked if I would want to try it, and threw it on her order while on the phone with me. Needless to say, its performance is reflexive of the price. I've never felt an ickier consistency on a serum - and we know they aren't always pleasurable to touch and/or apply. It has a sticky, gritty, oil-slip feel …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

2.0

Jul/09/2018

It was a wet, clustered and flaking mess, brand new, upon first opening it and pulling out the wand. This mascara is gravely overhyped and talked up, because I don't see the pay off. Beautiful packaging, nice brush for separating and splitting clumped lashes but otherwise there isn't any remarkable volume, lengthening or drama to the lashes.

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

May/07/2018

UGH, the SMELL!!!!! It's such a pungent mess of rotting eggs, baby wipes and a compost-site ...it's unbelievable! I'm not sensitive to fragrances or smells in my beauty products at all - I'm not one of those - so take my word for it, it's BAD. Quite frankly, I don't know what went wrong with the formula, but there's no 12+hour lasting on this. Sure, it'll …Read more

Loose Powders - Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Light and feathery, I'd consider this to be the perfect powder for under-eyes. It does an excellent job of bringing light and luminosity to the face, and not leaving a cast on it. I find it to be mattifying as well, so it'll definitely accentuate dry spots - be sure to moisturize properly prior to use, and you can avoid the caked look if you sweep brush powder off or on. Pricey, but …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - VICHY - Mineralizing Thermal Water

The cooling and soothing effect on this is beyond! It's hydrating, restorative, and gives everything it purports to do! Unlike Avene, it does a much better job subbing for a makeup setting spray if you need it to.

Skincare - Face - Avene - Eau Thermale - Thermal Spring Water

May/07/2018

I love this for pre-cleansing and afterward, also when used to hydrate the skin after a peel - the neutral pH helps here. It doesn't do a particularly good job on a finished makeup look, with setting or refreshing it. It's a step above Evian but ultimately not what I'd recommend on a fresh look for that purpose. The reason this doesn't get a 5 is because it boasts soothing and …Read more

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara

May/06/2018

I didn't like the wand, and Tarteist didn't offer any of the "sexy, thick, drama-filled..." lash features they advertised! I have long lashes and it vaguely added coating, but not much else in comparison to what I'm used to. After all the hype, I couldn't believe it's worse than all other Tarte mascaras - has terrible staying power and is difficult to remove! If …Read more
