Liquid - COVERGIRL - Clean Matte Oil-Control Liquid Foundation

I know this foundation hasn't gotten great reviews but I really love it. I have the 2 lightest shades-505 and 510. The lightest one is light enough but slightly pink so I add a tiny bit of the 510 to add the yellow I need. A lot of people complain about the bottle but I like it-it looks kind of retro 50s-60s to me. I use a q-tip and scoop out what I need. The foundation has an almost gel …Read more

I'm surprised by the negative reviews on this product as it's now a must have for me. I was using the Lumi, which I liked but when I rant out Target didn't have my shade so I grabbed this instead. I went up a shade to light rather than the fair I would normally use, because I think really fair shades allow any blue from my under eye area to show through. The light shade works …Read more

Crème - COVERGIRL - Aqua Smooth Make-Up - Creamy Natural 720

I'm almost finished my 3rd compact of this foundation so I think by now I have a good idea of its pros and cons. Aqua smooth gives medium coverage, a natural finish, & can be layered if necessary. I don't rely on it for SPF but it does have SPF 15, which came in handy one morning when I'd overslept & didn't have time to do my full skin routine, concealer, or eye …Read more

Blush - Physicians Formula - Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush - Rose

Apr/02/2015

I love these blushes & have used three of the Happy Booster shades; Natural, Pink, & Rose. Out of all of them the Rose is my favorite. Pink is beautiful but way too cool toned for my skin. I liked the Natural because it was really versatile & I may repurchase at some point, but it's not a holy grail item for me and I want to try other nude blushes . Rose is pigmented without …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Maybelline New York - Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

Feb/22/2014

I was initially sucked in by the cute packaging and low price. Baby Skin worked beautifully in terms of making my skin looked airbrushed; I've got extremely large pores and it gave my skin an airbrushed, porcelain smooth texture but it also made me look shinier than usual (I have exceptionally oily skin). I was bummed but decided to hang onto it. I'd been using Paula's Choice …Read more

I am extremely pale and for the last several years I would apply self tanner to my arms & legs every few days during the warmer months, but after awhile it was becoming burdensome.I was never keen on the smell of self tanners & got sick of all the grunt work needed to get a natural, streak free finish. Finally, after seeing so many beautiful fair skinned actresses who embraced their …Read more

Cleansers - LUSH - Fresh Farmacy Cleanser Bar

Jul/04/2011

Well I've been using this for several months now so I think I can accurately review it. This has been a lifesaver for my extremely oily, acne prone skin. While this is described as a bar soap I find the consistency to be more like a solid cream, if that makes sense. It dissolves very easily & is much softer than a traditional bar of soap. It's messy to use but it's so worth it …Read more

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 55 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED]

I've been using the 55 lotion for years, then they had to go & tamper with the formula & I found the spf 60 to be way too emollient for my super oily skin. I was in Sephora last week & saw the had sample sizes of the cream so I bought that. So far I'm liking it. I will have to update further but it leaves a much more matte finish than even the old 55 did, & I noticed at …Read more

I stumbled on this product several years ago when I was left with numerous red marks on my back from breakouts. I didn't know if it would do anything for me as I'm extremely fair but surprisingly it worked great. Fast forward a few years and I've had yet another bout with back breakouts. I bought this again and within a few days the red marks are fading. For some reason it …Read more

I have noticed that this product has been really effective for my back acne more so than any breakouts on my face. It doesn't stain or bleach any fabrics and smells like fresh lavender. The pump on the bottle is not the greatest as it doesn't always decide to work but I would still buy this again.
