Highlighters - Laura Mercier - Matte Radiance Baked Powder Highlighter

4.0

Jan/20/2016

I've used the same Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight as my first and only highlighter for the last 3+ years. I only use it for special occasions, so I still have about half left (in the older burgundy packaging that comes with a brush). However, I wanted to see if there was another subtle, beautiful highlighter out there that was cheaper, and I've found it in the LM …Read more

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Golden Slumbers

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2016

Got this as part of the "It's Christmas Deer" tin with 5 other bath bombs. This was quite disappointing. The lavender scent was nice and relaxing, but that's about it. At first I thought the lavender sprigs floating in the tub were cool and made the experience feel organic and wholesome, but they ended up becoming a nuisance, especially when subsequently cleaning the tub. …Read more

Bath Treatments - LUSH - The Comforter Bubble Bar

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2016

Love, love, love this scent!! It's fruity, uplifting, and scrumptious! I can get 3-4 uses out of one bubble bar, and each time, there are fluffy mountains of airy bubbles. The water turns a hot pink color, and my skin feels really soft in and out of the water. This bubble bar costs $11.95 for one (7oz) but because I get multiple uses out of it, I will continue to purchase.

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Lord of Misrule bath bomb

Jan/20/2016

I received this as a Christmas gift in the "It's Christmas Deer" tin with 5 other bath bombs. At first I was turned off by the scent, which is described on the Lush website as a "spicy herbal blend of patchouli and black pepper oil." My favorite scent from Lush is the Comforter bubble bar, which has a "friendly fruity aroma of a blackcurrant candy." I used …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - False Lashes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2016

Got a sample of this mascara, and I liked it from the get go, mostly because it's the only non-waterproof mascara I've tried so far that holds the curl in my normally-sparse-fine-stick-straight-and-points-downward-unless-I-use-a-curler lashes. This mascara defines, separates, and lengthens my lashes so they look fluttery. However, I wish my lashes looked more voluminous/substantial …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Jan Marini Skin Research - Bioclear

Aug/25/2015

[I thought I had a written a review for this lotion when I first started using it about 10 years ago, but I couldn't find it, so I'll write one now.] About 10 years ago, my skin was breaking out like crazy, and I remember reading on MUA about Jan Marini's BIoglycolic Bioclear lotion, so I tried it, and it totally worked for me. My skin totally cleared up, and if I did happen to …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Neutrogena - Rainbath Refreshing Shower & Bath Gel

Jul/09/2015

This review is for the Replenishing Shower and Bath Gel in Ocean Mist (blue). I've only used this a handful of times, but am really liking it so far. I've always been very particular about body washes because I've had keratosis pilaris on my upper arms for EONS, and certain soaps/washes seem to worsen the condition. I was a faithful user of St.Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter …Read more

Mascara - Urban Decay - Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara

May/05/2015

I needed a waterproof mascara for a beach vacation, so I tried this, but was NOT impressed. It defined my fine, puny lashes, held the curl, and was easily removed with Clinique's Take the Day Off balm. Also, the brush wasn't too unwieldy and I liked the black & turquoise packaging on the not-too-bulbous tube. However, the mascara fibers ended up under my eyes and on my cheeks …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Flared Waterproof

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/05/2015

I haven't used waterproof mascara in over a decade because it's difficult to remove and makes my lashes feel brittle and dry. However, I needed one to take with me on a beach vacation, so I bought this from CVS for $7.99. The curved brush is ginormous and bristle-y so it took some getting used to when applying to my very fleshy, hooded, monolidded eyes. It doesn't volumize or …Read more

Brows - Lioele - Artist Auto Eyebrow Pencil in #3 Gray Black

Apr/13/2015

I've purchased this product twice. Based on the 1st product, I give it 5 lippies and WOULD purchase again. However, based on the 2nd product, I give it 1 lippie and WOULD NOT purchase again. Let me explain: I purchased both products on ebay from the same seller (in Korea). The gray black color matches my brows exactly (though my hair is dark brown so in comparison, it's a bit too …Read more
