Scrubs - SKINFOOD - Wash-Off Black Sugar Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2015

The scent is nice, the sugar granules dissolve quickly when massaged in with water so the exfoliation isn't too harsh, and the oils prevent your face from drying out. That said, it's a little overrated. It's very average, doesn't do much to brighten or improve texture in a long-term way. I'm not a fan of the packaging either -- wish it came with a spatula or something …Read more

Cleansers - Holika Holika - Soda Pore Cleansing BB Deep Cleansing Foam

This product is, I guess, made out 'harrogate carbonated water' from the UK and contains baking soda, tea tree and witch hazel. It foams up nicely -- a little really does go a long way and you only need a tiny amount to create a thick lather. There are also tiny particles for exfoliation which dissolve quickly as you massage. It's decent at removing makeup, as it's meant to …Read more

Moisturizers - L'Occitane - angelica ultra matte fluid with citron bio

Jun/21/2014

I think it's okay. It's got a silky, cream-gel consistency that spreads very easily over skin -- I only use a small amount, less than a full pump, to cover my entire t-zone. It's summer so I've been using all over my entire face since I get really o-i-l-y. It's light and hydrating enough to replace the usual moisturizers that just seemed to make me greasy within an hour; …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Too Faced - Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer

Jun/21/2014

NOPE. Nope nope nope. It feels really lovely and velvety when you smooth it on, it spreads fantastically and the beige tint does slightly even out some blotchiness around my nose. It feels like a good base for foundation, which does apply really nicely over it... but by midday, it's like I used nothing at all. Just kind of a letdown after a really strong opening statement. For $30, not even …Read more

I do really like this foundation, though I will probably move on to new things when I'm through with the bottle (mostly due to price - if that weren't an issue I would repurchase). I'm NC20 and bought 10 Beige, though I kinda wish I'd gotten 20 Beige because my face does have a pale, almost chalky cast immediately after applying. After it settles in and oxidizes though, the …Read more

I am super late on this one, but wow, instant love! My hair is armpit length and virgin, but paradoxically both thick/coarse (I'm Asian) but fragile and damage-prone. I haven't tried every hair serum out there but the ones I have were either pointless, forgettable or downright icky -- granted, this is the first "salon-quality" serum I've splurged on (even then, I just got …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2013

Like a bunch of other people, I got a free sample tube at Sephora for my birthday, and "free" does a lot to temper my judgement... That said, save your money. Don't have much to add to what's already been said -- it's not the worst thing I've ever put on my eyes but far too expensive for being comparable to any old drugstore mascara that *kinda* lengthens (but also …Read more

Polishes - Yves Saint Laurent - La Laque Couture #24 Rose Abstrait

Sep/04/2013

Gorgeous pale pink/nude polish. Great for French manicures, though I like to keep it unfussy. Though it takes a steady hand to apply evenly, it's easy to get the hang of and definitely one of the LEAST streaky tranlucent polishes I've ever worked with. One coat leaves my nails glossy, pretty and polished-looking; definitely "my nails but better". Two coats creates a very chic …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Yerba Prima - Tampico Skin Brush

Sep/04/2013

Dry skin brushing is one of the best habits I've picked up. I bought this brush (made of agave plant fiber) at Whole Foods upon recommendation, and have been using it for a few months now.

People skin brush for a variety of reasons. There isn't any single miracle solution that will banish cellulite overnight but regular use of this has yielded far more benefits than I …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Desire

Feb/13/2013

I initially purchased this on a semi-whim, not really looking for or needing a new blush but unable to resist its unapologetically overstated candy-lolita-Barbie pink allure. I don't usually like hot pink. It just looked so delicious in the pan. Thought it would be a "fun" blush at most, something for nights out or certain moods, but it turns out I reach for this blush nearly every …Read more
