Skincare - Face - CeraVe - Hydrating Micellar Water

Feb/14/2018

I'll compare with Bioderma's Sensibio Micellar as that's what I normally use. Where the Bioderma dries out my face (I can only use it for eye makeup removal), this one did not! I used it to remove tinted mineral sunscreen and had to go over my face about 5 times with cotton pads to see that all had been removed. Did this in the evening and then used my CeraVe in the tub, in the …Read more

Not a fan. These whiten, but after using them a few times I noticed that they don't whiten BETWEEN your teeth - so I had nice, white teeth but around the edges (by my gums and where teeth meet) was remaining more yellow. Yuck. I even tried conforming the strip by poking it in between with my fingernail, but it didn't really work.

Treatments (Face) - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - BellEvolve Lac-Luronic Serum

I've already ordered my second bottle, large size this time! I love this stuff. I was using it daily but stopped when I went on vacation. I've just started Retin-A, so wanted to bring this stuff back into my routine to help with the flakies and WOW! I didn't even realize it was this good. A day after using Retin-A my skin was just looking a little dry and flaky so I put this on …Read more

Cleansers - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Mandelic Acid Cleanser

Feb/15/2016

This cleanser has made a HUGE difference in the oiliness of my skin. I used to have to blot several times a day; now it's down to once (and if I went without, I really don't look that greasy). My skin is a bit on the dry side and over produces oil to compensate, and this cleanser does not dry me out at all (I use only once a day, and an oil cleanser in the AM). You only need a tiny bit …Read more

Ok, I thought this thing was garbage, until I saw someone recommending you wash it first - I did, and now IT WORKS! I was about to return this product but now I am going to keep it. I really like it because it doesn't take away shine completely, and leaves you with a nice, natural glow to your skin. WASH IT before you decide it's no good! It will not absorb any oil if it's never …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Concealer

Jan/07/2016

So far this is the best concealer I've found. Doesn't look cakey or wrinkle the undereye area, and has good coverage. I have a bit of melasma under the eyes and this alone can't cover it, but if I use a bit of Benefit Erase Paste with this concealer on top, I'm good. The only drawback is the pump absolutely sucks. It's absolutely impossible to control how much comes out …Read more

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara

Aug/17/2015

I like this. My brows are already thick, but sparse. This tints and beefs up each hair a little bit. I have medium-dark brown hair and got the soft brown, which works. I use ELF's taupe pencil or IT's brow power universal with this. I like the ball brush, it may be too large for some with thinner brows. This doesn't dispense too much product, the bottle does a good job wiping the …Read more

Foundations - Marc Jacobs - Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/14/2015

Though it's not for me, this is a good foundation. I would much prefer a pump for sanitary reasons. This is full coverage, with a matte yet luminous finish. I always compare full coverage foundations to Double Wear, since that one is so popular. Whereas Double Wear gives me serious cake face, this one does not. It manages to look fairly natural even with a heavy application. It is hard to …Read more

Foundations - Too Faced - Born This Way Foundation

Aug/04/2015

This reminds me of Estee Lauder Double Wear. I hate Double Wear. This looks more natural and less cakey, but I'm still not a fan. I feel it causes a dry look to my skin and actually doesn't look very natural. The coverage is so-so, but I'm very particular about my foundations and not willing to sacrifice a natural looking finish just to get coverage. I'm NC25 and I tried out …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Avon - Moisture Effective Eye Makeup Remover

1.0

Jun/30/2015

This stuff is terrible. I have to rub quite a bit to properly remove eye makeup. This is very greasy and gets into my eyes, my vision is blurry for a good 1/2 hour after use. I've heard it's very bad to use oils on your eyes. I should probably discontinue use but I've been trying to use things up rather than just throw out.
