Where do I begin...i am a person who NEEDS a concealer for my under eyes. My dark circles and puffiness could make a baby cry. Its that awful. Ive tried a bunch and so far, the winners for me are Estee Lauder double wear concealer snd sephora brightening gel serum concealer. Problem that I have as i get older is the crepiness and creases. It really ages the whole face if you dont use the right …Read more

BB Cream - erborian - BB Cream au Ginseng

To me, this is an HG product. This covers all the bases of what a great BB cream should be. I'm about an NC 30-35 and the color Dore is perfect. I don't have great skin by any means- hyperpigmentation, acne scars on cheeks, dehydrated skin, very clog prone and overall, just blah. This BB cream is medium coverage. It's a creamy texture and I usually use a sponge to pat into …Read more

I never thought I would be reviewing something as simple as cotton pads. But wait, it's not actually that simple... I use to use a makeup wipe to remove my eye makeup, thinking it was suffice enough. Boy, was I wrong. I discovered this amazing liquid eye makeup remover (ahem..Bifesta) and it changed everything. My nghtyl routine required me to use a cotton pad for eye makeup removal. I …Read more

BB Cream - Urban Decay - Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Foundation

Feb/16/2017

If you are someone who likes tinted moisturizers and that airy, breathable type foundation, then this is for you. Do not expect much coverage as this is quite sheer. Many people claim it's "your skin but better" and I agree. It is lovely on the skin and there is a subtle glow. I tried the Medium shade and for reference I am typically a NC35. The shade was a good match albeit a …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer

Feb/16/2017

I'm typically not a primer person but I was curious. I did tons of research before buying this LIGHT version and it fell short on my expectations...

I have oily/combo skin, prone to clogs if using wrong products, and can also get dehydrated if not moisturized properly. Upon reading reviews for this, many users said this product is very moisturizing due to it's lotion-like …

Nov/01/2016

Ok folks, I'm gonna lay it straight. These are the BEST tinted lip balm. Ever. I typically have the problem of trying different chapstick and many or should I say, all just make my lips drier. It really sucks because you'd think that balms are suppose to aid in dry and chapped lips. Nope. Angelic music fading in.... burts bees has made my smokers lips pink and soft. I even apply …Read more

Cleansers - Fresh - Soy Face Cleanser

2.0

Sep/26/2016

This is a very straightforward gel cleanser. Even though the claims say it will "whisk" away makeup, I highly doubt they mean heavy or lingwear makeup. Perhaps some blush and powder makeup. Also, I never tried it in eye makeup removal because I usually use a separate oil cleanser for that.

I tried the entire trial size tube and I have to say it really isn't all …

This product works! I am an NC35 and I tan very easily. However, For some reason, my legs are always the hardest to tan. I couldn't make it out to the beach or had the time to sit out, so I got this. The first time I tried it, I applied three layers , one on top of another. Call me impatient and overzealous. This is not what one should do. Heed the warning!!! Here I was, thinking my …Read more

Cleansers - Banila Co - Clean it Zero

Created with Sketch.

Dec/26/2015

I have heard so many race reviews about this product that I thought this might have been my HG makeup remover. I was wrong. I tried the oil cleansing method in the past with bad results. I also tried Clinique take the day off balm and that didn't go over so well. It clogged my pores.

I have oily and very clog prone skin. Almost every product reacts to my skin and causes some …

Cleansers - Yes To - Carrots Nourishing Daily Cream Facial Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/27/2015

I recently tried this face wash and unfortunately, it did not agree with my skin. I used makeup wipes first and then the Yes to Carrots FRAGRANCE FREE daily cream cleanser. The packaging and amount of product is fine but the effectiveness is where it falls flat for me. The product is creamy and rich. When applying, it feels like you are rubbing beeswax on your face because it is very …Read more
