Moisturizers - Kate Somerville - Nourish Daily Moisture

2.0

Jun/24/2011

This moisturizer really irritated my skin which was shocking since I'm pretty resilient to most skincare. I put up with it for a good month trying to convince myself it was other factors, but in the end I had to admit that I couldn't use this moisturizer anymore and so I returned it. It gave me huge pimples on my forehead and temples and what was frustrating was that it never truly …Read more

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/21/2011

This mascara is really great! It goes on so smooth and never clumps at all. It separates and defines beautifully and boy does it last all day on my lashes with no flaking or smudging. Best of all it's natural so I know I'm not hurting my lids or lashes but rather taking care of them with the added Amazonian clay benefits. I don't think I will use another unnatural mascara ever …Read more

Eyeliner - Tarte Cosmetics - emphasEYES Inner Rim Eyeliner

2.0

Feb/18/2011

I had a deluxe sample of this eyeliner and I loved how black it was and smooth it looked on my eye, but I went to buy a full size and it performed completely different. It just crumbled after crumbled during application I couldn't believe it. I tried so hard to make this eyeliner work since I know it's potential from the deluxe sample I had, so maybe I got a bad one? I read reviews of …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush - Natural Beauty

Feb/17/2011

After hearing about these Amazonian clay blushes, I caved into the numerous skin friendly properties the Amazonian clay is supposed to have and figured why not get a blush that is supposedly way better for my skin? I ended up choosing Natural Beauty, which is a pretty muted reddish pink that looks gorgeous on my fair-med skin tone and dark brown hair. It really makes my cheeks pop and seriously …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil in Rehab

5.0

Feb/05/2011

Do not know how Urban Decay managed to make a cream eye shadow pencil not crease ALL day but they did! Alot of eye products, especially creams, crease on me without my beloved LORAC primer but these pencils are so awesome, way better than the NYX pencils I tried which were extremely greasy and creased on me within minutes. These creamy pencils perform like nothing else, they are highly pigmented …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2010

This should be called a "million little flakies" because that's exactly what it gives my eye area only after a couple hours after application. Not only that, it gave a wet look to my lashes and separated them greatly. There was no fullness whatsoever. They actually looked really bare and worse than with no mascara at all. Also, the packaging feels really cheap. Without a doubt, I …Read more

Highlighters - LORAC - Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Spotlight

5.0

Dec/03/2010

The most luxurious and silky highlighter I've ever used. It melts like butter and provides the natural glow I wish to achieve. I've used other high end highlighters that were too chalky, sparkly and glittery that really accentuated my pores. This stuff is the complete opposite and needs to be a new cult favorite highlighter for sure.

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Domed Bronzer Brush

Dec/02/2010

I would pay $50 for this brush and not second guess my decision one bit! This brush is of extremely high quality with super soft densely packed bristles and a very thick wooden handle that feels so luxurious in the palm of my hand. It applies powder, blush and highlighter perfectly. I've paid so much for some high end brushes that didn't meet my expectations but this brush surpasses …Read more

Powder - Laura Mercier - Foundation Powder

Nov/05/2010

I've always been a liquid foundation type of person but lately it has been really hard to control shine and slippage so I decided to give powder foundation a try. I tried a couple that were terrible but when I came across this one I was ecstatic. This is top quality right here without a doubt. I barely have to apply it to my skin and it blends and covers beautifully. It's so darn easy …Read more

This is a review for Laura Mercier's Mineral Foundation primer that comes in a tube. I used and tried her original Foundation Primer but couldn't stand the horrible smell and how shiny it made my face all day. This primer is completely different. It matify's and smooths my face leaving it perfectly prepped for Laura Mercier's foundation powder. It works wonders leaving me …Read more
