Liquid - Maybelline New York - Superstay 24HR Full Coverage Foundation

I have 112 Natural Ivory, for light neutral to cool skin tones. Love this foundation! Easily blends with fingers and settles nicely into skin. Gives strong medium coverage, can be built up to full coverage but then I would advise using a brush or beauty blender. Not excessively matte or drying and wears quite well throughout the day. Did not accentuate the fine lines on my forehead. And I did …Read more

Stunning. Multi-faceted.
Truly a gem; this deserves to be in an art deco splash bottle displayed on a vanity, not stuck in a generic drugstore shelf collecting dust.
My vintage bottle comes from the 80s with a small tassle. I can see why many people might be afraid to even spray this on a test strip, from the nozzle it smells like some sort of household cleanser. However, this …

HG PRODUCT FOR ME!!
I ran out of my PC Oil Booster trial and decided to try Jojoba since people said it's good for oily/acne prone folks.

My skin is combo, gets a little drier in winter and doesn't breakout unless a product irritates me. After using my retinol, I like to add a little more moisture since retinol dries me out a bit.

My hair is fine but I …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster

Nov/19/2016

The reviews below are correct: this is a fairly simple oil blends you can create yourself if you like.

That being said, I received this as a free sample and was skeptical to try because I do get pimples from products that are too thick (I normally have combo skin).

However, I took the risk and loved it! My skin is super soft and not greasy feeling, one drop is plenty. It …

Currently. my skin is a bit drier than normal since it is now December in Chicago. If you have normal or dry skin, definitely use a oil or other moisturizer on top of this product. I used PC's oil booster.

Will cause some peeling and redness which is typical when you use retinol products. Mine went away after the 2nd week, however be mindful of how much you apply. Once I got …

A wonderful mix of vintage and modern. The EL website claims the feeling for this perfume is "EXTROVERTED. GLAMOROUS.. SOPHISTICATED.” And I completely agree with that summary of this frag. I adore the art deco inspired bottle as well.

At first, the Bulgarian Rose is dominant, along with a tartness from the raspberry. It’s sweet but not sugary sweet on my skin. Then it morphs …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Falsies Push-Up Drama Mascara

Jan/17/2016

Being that I have longer lashes that point downward, anything that claims to pushup or curl draws my attention. Especially since I hate using a lash curler.
Anyway, overall I was very disappointed in this product.
Why?
-Although it pushes the lashes up, it also clumps lashes together. The first coat is ok but after that, this get really messy, you definitely need a lash comb. This …

"A Magical Blend of Vanilla, Amber, Cedar, Spices & Cauldron Smoke" -from the SS site

A good unisex option for those who like woodsy type scents or vanilla that isn't too foody smelling.. I also purchased their scent Spellbound Woods, but preferred this because the vanilla seemed more...natural? Let me explain...

To me, this scent is like a mystery …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

PLEASANTLY SURPRISED!! MAC SA suggested this in N1 when I told her I was looking for something light to wear that didn't settle into pores and wrinkles and would work underneath my Studio Fix powder foundation. I have combo/oily skin, mild redness in cheeks occasionally, a few early signs of aging.

I feel this gives the perfect amount of coverage for evening out skintone. Better …
