Tinted Moisturizer - La Mer - tinted moisturizer in light [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/24/2012

I swapped for this TM thinking I wasn't going to love it, but it was worth a try. I've tried a ton of foundations and nothing really provides the coverage I need while looking natural. The other TM's I've tried (LM, CG) are just "ok"; They usually look a little orange-y and slightly greasy. When I first dotted this on my face, I thought it would be the same as the …Read more

Masks - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Yogurt Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/01/2012

I don't notice this helping so much with active acne, but for clarity in my skin, this gets a 5. Yogurt is incredibly easy and accessible to use as a mask and it works better than many store bought products. I have been using it the past 3 days (and have used it on occasion in the past) to try and sooth a big flare up I had. It hasn't necessarily helped with the acne as much as other …Read more

Lip Gloss - Bella - Bella Il Fiore Lip gloss - Kate

May/29/2012

This is a really nice gloss that comes out clear on my lips. The texture is really nice, definitely one of the best. It sort of reminds me of CO Bigelow's glosses, overall (but this has a doe foot applicator). It's non-sticky or tacky, but still has great shine. The lasting power is so-so, but I don't mind that. I think it's a little expensive for the size and what it is …Read more

Masks - Lancôme - Empreinte

I received a sample of this. It's a very nice clay mask, but I really don't find it to do anything that much cheaper masks don't do. I put it on when I woke up with 2 pimples on my face and it didn't do anything to reduce their size. My skin feels very nice and smooth after using it, but it's definitely not anything to write home about. I like the tightening effect that …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Trio - Spoiled Brat

Jan/01/2012

I picked this up because it was $.74 on clearance at Target! I love WnW shadows, but I honestly would have never bought these on my own because they're a little bold for me. I have used the silver and black on occasion, but haven't gotten much use out of the pink yet. The black looks glittery and I thought it would be gritty, but it's not at all. Last night, I did a smokey eye …Read more

Hair Treatments - OGX - Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy Organix 30 Day Smoothing Treatment

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/03/2011

I knew I had to try this product, regardless of the mixed reviews.
First of all, anyone who tries this product should have a basic familiarity with keratin products and it probably helps if you've had one professionally applied so you have an idea of what to do. I am far from an expert on keratin/hair products, but I definitely did my research before getting a Brazilian Blowout in June …

Moisturizers - Dermalogica - Super Rich Repair

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/28/2011

I received 2 sample packs of this. It's a very nice, heavy moisturizer that doesn't leave you feeling weighed down. I was surprised that this didn't break me out since I have sensitive skin. I've been waking up with clear skin everyday! Unfortunately, for me I can't justify the price to buy the full size. It's a great moisturizer, but not life changing. I would …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash Mascara - Blackest Black

Dec/26/2010

It's not like anyone would want to buy this based on the reviews here, but here goes. Ok, so I don't HATE this mascara like most people. The almost-watery texture of it leaves it as one of the most natural looking mascaras I've ever used, and I'd way rather have eyelashes that don't stand out too much than spidery lashes that other mascaras offer. In high school, I wore …Read more

Dec/08/2010

Ah, Photoready. You make my skin look so pretty. Almost like my skin but better, if my skin were naturally sparkly. Why Revlon, did you need to put silver sparkles in this foundation?
I got this in a swap and tried it on my skin in minimal lighting. Fabulous. Ran to MUA to read reviews and heard people ranting about sparkles. I thought they were crazy. Until I tried it the next day in the …

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/08/2010

I had ventured into the world of mineral makeup, but I can never bring it with me to touch up as its too much of a pain to apply. I had heard great things about Colorstay, and I was recently able to swap for a new one. I LOVE it! First, I'll start off by saying, my skin isn't perfect. It's pretty clear, but I'm pale and the redness around my nose and eyes is obvious. I only …Read more
