Mascara - NARS Cosmetics - Climax Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

11 days ago

I received this as a sample from Sephora and I was excited to try this. I love the packaging and the brush. However, I found this mascara to be really disappointing. I curled my lashes and applied one coat. This definitely does have any "wow" factor. I had to apply 3-4 coats before I got the effect I wanted. This kind of gave that "feathery" soft look and I feel like this …Read more

Masks - Deciem - The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

4.0
Created with Sketch.

17 days ago

This is a crazy inexpensive, yet effective peel. For the price, the amount you get will last a very long time. I would say I only use this twice a month. I apply a generous amount onto clean skin, let sit for 10 minutes and then splash off with warm water .I have read you can use baking soda to neutralize the acid after removing the peel but I haven't tried this method. Please note that you …Read more

Liquid - Kevyn Aucoin - The Sensual Skin Fluid Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

21 days ago

I purchased this foundation after reading several rave reviews. I love illuminating foundations and I was hoping for the best with this. This foundation retails for $68 USD. For reference, I purchased SX 02 as I am N4/NC15. I first applied this over a Smashbox primer. Keep in mind that this is a "serum" foundation and is going to be runny in consistency. I actually did not mind the …Read more

Eye Shadow - Marc Jacobs - Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette - Steel(etto)

5.0

This is my first Marc Jacobs palette, and I think it's fantastic. There are a few cool-toned brown shades, a great cream for all over the lid, a black, a highlight shade, a gorgeous plummy shade, and of course a great slivery-lilac shimmer/glitter. These shades are really pigmented and I was particularly struck by the blendability and that you don't have to build the shade to get full …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Extended Play Perm Me Up Lash Mascara

1.0

1 month ago

MAC mascaras and generally terrible, and this one is no exception. This does not hold a curl at all, it doesn't voiumize and doesn't add a ton of length. As another reviewer mentioned, since this is a tubing mascara, it doesn't smudge. Since there is nothing exciting about this mascara, I won't repurchase, but I will use this just on my lower lashes as the smaller brush would …Read more

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer

4.0

1 month ago

I purchased this concealer from Ulta after hearing that this was nearly as good as Shape Tape. First, the shade range is not good. I needed the fairest shade and the first couple of times I went to go look for it, Ulta was out of the shade. I also really dislike the packaging as it is pretty juvenile. Who wants a concealer that looks like a pencil eraser. As with a lot of Benefit's …Read more

Masks - ORIGINS - Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I received a deluxe size of this a while ago but hadn't yet tried it out. I have combination oily skin, but lately I've been using retinol and glycolic acid often so I have a lot of dry patches and really needed some intense hydration, I was skeptical of trying this mask because I just imagined it being a gloppy mess and getting all over my pillowcases, but it wasn't. I just …Read more

Eye Shadow - PAT MCGRATH LABS - Subliminal Platinum Bronze Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I bought this as there was a 30% off sale for Black Friday and I've been wanting to try a Pat McGrath palette. I love the packaging; it reminds me of 90's designers like Vivienne Westwood/Betsey Johnson. The palette comes with a mirror and a plastic insert with all the shades. I didn't view this palette anywhere but the Pat McGrath site which had the picture that is featured above …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Liquidlast Liner - Point Black

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I will start by saying that this is one of the longest-lasting eyeliners I have ever used. But that being said, the brush is awful. It's not thin enough to give as much precision as is needed, and if you aren't careful the liner will get everywhere, including all over your lashes, and will smear onto the lids. I have found the best way to use this is BEFORE any mascara. Otherwise …Read more

Loose Powders - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Setting Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I just got this powder from Sephora and it's a great setting powder. I got this in one of the smaller "trial" sizes they have at the register and I think even the smaller size will last a very long time. The packaging is both luxurious and functional and has a really high-end feel to it. I also don't mind the vanilla scent. Normally I don't "bake" the undereye …Read more
