Treatments (Eye) - TATCHA - The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment

3.0

I'm still on the fence about this one. I'm probably the ideal market for it. I don't have dark circles/bags. I'm just trying to brighten the eye area (my issues are more wrinkles and dryness). This product does brighten nicely in a very subtle way and it is hydrating which I appreciate. But is a HUGE pain in the arse to apply. The creators explain how to apply in their video …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Laura Mercier - Flawless Finish Makeup Sponge

1.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I purchased this at Sephora and it is a very hard sponge, similar to those cheap triangle cosmetic sponges Sephora has for the public to sample makeup. It's not quite that hard but similar EVEN when wet. When you wet the sponge, instead of it becoming softer to "bounce" the makeup into your face, it barely changes at all. I don't like the flat, square edge that tends to leave …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - VI Peel

This peel was OK. I didn't prep with RetinA beforehand or I'm sure I would've had a deeper peel. I didn't find it that much better than the SkinMedica Rejuvenizing peel and it is quite a bit more expensive. I even had the precision plus peel which is supposed to be 25% stronger but I was underwhelmed. I will warn you that the sunblock that comes with the kit is AWFUL. It pills …Read more

Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Lips Matte Contour Liquid Lipstick

1.0

11 months ago

Awful. I'm a fan of several of her products and have been wanting to try her lipsticks. I purchased 2 of the Hollywood Lips. The colors are beautiful but the formula is awful as other reviewers have noted. It is very drying and leaves a ring of color on the edges of your lips after an hour. The formula is patchy and chalky. Basically it is like an old tube of Avon lipstick you found rolling …Read more

Eye Shadow - By Terry - Ombre Blackstar in #15 Ombre Mercure

Apr/21/2018

I honestly don't get the very high ratings for this. I've been on an eye color stick craze and tried most of the big names. I really like the Mercier and Bobbi Brown sticks but I thought the ones by By Terry were the BEST (with the price tag to prove it) so I bought this one from Nordstrom. It is a lovely color and very creamy; it also blends out very well. BUT, the color is VERY …Read more

Moisturizers - Honest Beauty - Even Brighter Everyday Moisturizer

Dec/27/2016

I got this as a free deluxe sample at ULTA and absolutely love it. I tend to be a skincare snob and usually purchase high-end, expensive skin care but this really works and I will purchase the full size when I run out. I have dry skin and use a moisturizing spf and a heavy moisturizer at night but wanted a lighter moisturizer that I could just quickly put on after washing my face. This fits the …Read more

Blush - Charlotte Tilbury - Cheek to Chic blush - Love is the Drug

Feb/28/2015

I'm conflicted about this blush and maybe I just didn't get the right shade for me. It is super pigmented and has great staying power but is too shimmery for me. It reminds me of a muted Nars Orgasm. Everyone I know loves Nars Orgasm but it's way too blingy for (I'm in my mid 40's). Also I have dry skin and usually wear liquid or cream blush but I wanted to try this since …Read more

Eye Shadow - Charlotte Tilbury - Colour Chameleon Color Morphing Eye Shadow Pencil

Feb/28/2015

I have dark brown eyes and purchased this in Dark Pearl and it is GORGEOUS. I love it and can't stop staring at my eyes when I have it on. It is very shimmery (but not hard core glittery) so I keep it just to my lids or as a liner for work but apply more generously for play time. It is a very complex shade and looks like you are wearing multiple colors. It applies like butter and sets in …Read more

Mascara - Charlotte Tilbury - Full Fat Lashes Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/28/2015

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. This is my all time favorite mascara. I saw an interview with Charlotte Tilbury and she said the mascara was the one product that took the longest to perfect and it shows as the standout product in her collection. This mascara leaves lashes super soft and it is very buildable without clumping. No smudging on me either although I have dry skin so mascara rarely smudges on me …Read more

Lip Liners - Charlotte Tilbury - Lip Cheat - Pillow Talk

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/28/2015

I got this as part of my Charlotte Tilbury haul from Nordstrom's and this liner was a miss for me. The color is nice but it tends to drag somewhat and isn't very soft. Not great staying power either. I much prefer my Dior lip liners.
