Dec/01/2016

YES!!!!! I've been battling oily (and lately problematic) skin for years and I've finally found my HG skin routine. I've tried a few mositurizers recently, from clinique to lush. I've been looking for one more natural but with no luck. I use it in conjunction with the mask once a week and the toner every twice a day (waiting for my current face wash to run out before I try …Read more

YES!!!!! I've been battling oily (and lately problematic) skin for years and I've finally found my HG skin routine. I've never been big on toners. too many have alcohol, dry out my skin, are sticky, or do absolutely nothing for skin. This toner is worth investing in and adding to my routine. I use it in conjunction with the mask once a week and the mositurizer every morning …Read more

Treatments (Face) - SKINFOOD - Peach Sake Pore Serum

Not a winner, unfortunately. Pros: the smell is fantastically peachy, it's not sticky, and absorbs fast . Cons: it doesn't mattify for very long at all, definitely doesn't minimize pores as it claims (although I rarely expect those claims to be true) and made my skin break out and itch. I think it acts a lot like a touch up powder so it's mattifying results are only temporary …Read more

Styling Products - L'Oreal Paris - Blow Dry It Quick Dry Primer Spray

This went to HG status in one use. I'm so obsessed, I will tell anyone that will listen. I have THICK hair and lots of it; even my hairdressers make a comment about how thick my hair is every time I get a hair cut. And I've been paying for it because everything takes twice as long with this mane. Especially drying my hair, I literally have to schedule time out of my day to do it …Read more

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

This product delivers! I have ridiculously oily lids, as in there's no point in even wearing shadow without a primer because it will crease, melt, slide off, etc. I use a tiny amount and set it with some powder before I apply the shadow and my shadow doesn't budge until I decide to take it off at night. And for around $4, what more could I want out of an eye shadow primer?

Self Tanners - Unlisted Brand - St. Moriz Self Tanner Mousse

This is my go-to self tanner. Ulta carries this for $12.99 and I repurchase every single time. I used to go to the tanning beds a lot but as I get older I've been trying to find alternatives so I don't do anything that prematurely ages me or puts my body at risk. When I first bought this, I bought it in medium because I'm very fair. I now have repurchased this multiple times but …Read more

I swear, there's so many products I want to give 3.5 lippies but end up giving them 4 since A) it's not possible and B) they're a steal, so I rather round up. This is one of them. This stuff is dirt cheap! So I think I will make sure to always keep one handy, whether it's in my purse, traveling, or an apocalypse. It's pigmented and blends easily. I wouldn't call it …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Paula's Choice - Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish Oil-Control Primer

Sep/19/2015

If I could sum up this review in one sentence: why didn't I get this in my life sooner! I heard of paula's choice a couple of years ago, but trying new mattifying products is exhausting, usually unsuccessful, and I didn't feel comfortable since I wasn't super familiar with the brand. But then recently I read a review that mentioned low cost samples so I went online and bought …Read more

Fragrances - JIMMY CHOO - Jimmy Choo EDP

Obsessed isn't even the word! It's rich, confident, and sophisticated. The longevity and sillage are both awesome; I can still smell the scent on my wrists the next day. It's sweet but in a soft and earthy way that makes it different than the typical gourmand or floral. I'm not usually into florals but the green notes and the orchid really blend well with the toffee so …Read more

Eye Shadow - L'Oreal Paris - Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude - Intense

This palette consists of taupes, mauves, lilacs, plums, and browns. If you're expecting this to be a dupe or even comparable to high end palettes/Naked 2 then don't even consider buying this. But if you're like me and maybe you're not as serious about your eyeshadows, don't want to dish $50 to try new looks out, or just plain curious about these purpley shadows, I …Read more
