Conditioner - Desert Essence - Fragrance Free Conditioner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2017

If you need a fragrance-free conditioner, this will suffice. Just be warned, this is a rather old-school conditioner -- if you want one that's modern in its formulation to be light and airy, forget it. I use this only because it's fragrance-free and detangles, but if you don't wash your hair every day (I don't anymore), your head will be a grease pit. The key is to use a teeny …Read more

Liquid - BECCA - Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2013

I wanted to like this foundation because it lays down nicely on the skin and has medium coverage (ladies who want serious coverage, look elsewhere). BUT the scent/fragrance was too strong. Like grandma's perfume. Yuck. Wiped it off and I can still smell it faintly on my face. Also, this foundation seriously emphasized my fine lines, and my lines are VERY fine. As in when I'm not wearing …Read more

Powder - Alima Pure - Satin Matte Mineral Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2013

I had high hopes for this foundation/powder, but.....it pains me to say this because I respect Alima's philosophy and their customer service is good....I hated this product. I did my due diligence and ordered many tiny samples before choosing the exact perfect color. I'm a fair beige (can't remember the exact number right now) and the color itself is perfect. However, the finish is …Read more

Blush - rms beauty - Blush - Muse

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/10/2013

I don't say this about many products but....I am obsessed with Muse. It's unlike any other color. (Respectfully I have to disagree with the review by "hjjung" because Muse would NOT be best on dark skin, in fact it would probably not show up.) Muse is a curious color, kind of beige but with a slight pinkish undertone that's barely detectable in the pot, but it shows up on …Read more

Brows - Dior - Powder brow pencil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2013

Within one day of getting both colors (sand and blonde) I became addicted to their texture. They are, by far, the easiest pencil to apply, and leave the lightest feathery powder finish. Most often I use them lightly over Tarte EmphasEYES which is waxy and stays put. The only complaint is the lack of color options for this pencil. Both have a slight auburn undertone and that's very …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Tinted Brow Gel in Brunette

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2012

I tried several of the colors but they are all gold. It's weird. I like Anastasia stencils, but not one of these tinted gels was wearable for me. The gold-ness isn't subtle, it's full-on GOLD, and unless it's nighttime, these are not natural-looking.

Moisturizers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - 100% Pure Argan Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/30/2012

I can't say Argan oil is amazing and superior to other oils (safflower, olive, coconut, etc) but this one is light, has NO SCENT and tames flyaway and static-y hair with the tiniest amount. Great bottle with the dropper makes it easy to control. After I bought it I learned it's in the family of nut oils, though, and that could be a problem for allergic people. I don't use nut oils …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Stencils

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/30/2012

I have a small face and lame eyebrows. My brows don't naturally arch, they're not perfectly symmetrical, and they kinda slope downward. When I first opened these stencils I thought, "these are WAY too big," but it's interesting how well they work after you mess around with them. I now use them almost every day, and if you saw how small my face is, you wouldn't …Read more

Scrubs - PHYTOMER - Purifying Gommage Exfoliant

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/01/2012

It's crazy how good this product is. I hadn't even planned on buying it, I planned on buying only the Vegetal exfoliant (which I adore). When both came in the mail I decided to try this first, since it had been an impulse buy, and it'd been a while since I'd exfoliated and I knew this would be 'harsher' than the Vegetal. O...m...g this exfoliator is ridiculously …Read more
