Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix 24-Hour Smooth Wear Concealer

3.0

When I heard this was coming out, I ran out to buy it the day it launched because I love Pro Longerwear concealer and I thought this would be even more coverage and maybe similar to Shape Tape. Nope. I would say the formula is buildable and medium coverage, though MAC claims this is full-coverage. While it is exciting that Studio Fix concealer comes in a large shade range, the shades DO NOT …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Brushstroke 24 HR Liner - Brushblack

I was very excited when this came out. I usually use the KVD liquid liner but I'm always looking for new makeup. This has a very smooth, market style pen tip and a rich black color. Draws a very smooth, fluid line. However, this smudges like crazy on me. I had bought this awhile ago and forgotten about it and I used it last week in a pinch before work because I couldn't find my regular …Read more

So I've always really liked this foundation and would always take samples of it from the department store I worked at. I'm NC15/NW13 and I loved the shade Ivory Nude even though it was maybe a hint too dark in the winter. This foundation gives excellent coverage that LASTS all day and doesn't move. It did not separate or crease especially around my chin or nose and always performed …Read more

I have been user of ROC Deep Wrinkle Night cream for years but I wanted a retinol treatment that was stronger. I received a deluxe sample of this from Sephora (it might have been a 500 point perk and came with another DE moisturizer). This is housed in a metal tube. Per the instructions you are to use a pea-sized amount-I used more than this the first night but then realized a pea-sized amount …Read more

Concealers - ColourPop - No Filter Matte Concealer

First, I have tried many concealers as I am always looking for that "holy grail". I've found that most concealers don't seem to "set" or have great lasting power as most of them crease due to my oily skin and lately, I've found that even setting them with powder does not help and often makes creasing worse as mascara transfers then sets in the powder as well …Read more

Powder - Kat Von D - Lock-It Powder Foundation

I bought this in Light 44. Packaging is lovely and I applied this with a flat top brush and buffed in all over. Coverage was great and I didn't find that it looked unnatural or powdery in any way. I was very happy with the way it looked and went on with my day and off to work. Unfortunately, as others have mentioned, I found out the hard way that this oxidizes terribly. I went to the …Read more

I have platium/silver hair and I have tried various purple shampoos and conditioners and ALL of them are drying. A friend who is also platinum was raving about these so I ordered them from Sephora. At first I was confused about using them. You can mix them into hair care you regularly use, like blow out cream or leave-in conditioner. I wasn't sure how this would work because they are a deep …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light Plus

11 months ago

This is one of my favorite powders that has a natural, luminous glow. I prefer the older packaging without a mirror; when it was updated a few years ago the included mirror made it much bulkier. This applies very smoothly and I normally use it to set my foundation. You can also use it as a foundation, buffed on all over with a kabuki for light to medium coverage. I have normal to oily skin and I …Read more

Jan/24/2018

I bought this foundation about a year ago and I remembered that I'd worn it a few times but could not remember specifically why I didn't like it. Today I wore it, without a primer, through an 8 hour workday. I put it on around 9 am and checked it out in a mirror when I got home at 6 pm...and it looked horrific. I generally have good skin and have a pretty fastidious skincare routine …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips

Dec/28/2017

I have worn waterproof mascara for nearly 15 years, and I'm a die-hard Lancome Bifacil fan. However, I've recently started purchasing this (I do use lots of other Clinique products) after getting it in a gift last year and using it. I've found that it works just as well as Bifacil, and it's a much better price point. This does not irritate and breaks down hard-to-remove …Read more
