Conditioner - Briogeo - Briogeo Be Gentle Be Kind Kale + Apple Replenishing Superfood Conditioner

23 days ago

I have 2B waves with a lot of frizz and I consider my hair to be low porosity. I needed a new conditioner and got suckered into Briogeo's aesthetic. I paid just under $30 for this. The packaging is cute but difficult to use - the plastic is pretty stiff and squeezing the product out can be difficult. As for the actual conditioner, it's just okay. It gave my hair amazing slip in the …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Colorescience - TOTAL EYE 3-In-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35

I love this thing. It brightens, corrects and offers SPF protection all while looking very natural. This is a peach tinted sunscreen meant for the under eyes. My dark circles aren't severe but I definitely get a shadow under my eyes. This brightens up the area and the peach color helps conceal any blue/purple tones I might be having. It looks very natural. The finish is dewy but it has …Read more

Loose Powders - Glossier - Wowder

4.0

1 month ago

I really like this powder. It's takes down the shine and sets my makeup but the finish is never too matte. I wear NC13 in MAC's Studio Fix Powder and the lightest shade of Wowder suits me well. I'm only giving it a 4 out of 5 because of the packaging. The container is adorable but it's not functional for me. Instead of having an actual closing over the powder there is a …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Control Freak Brow Gel

I love this brow gel and I'm surprised to see such mixed reviews. It has good hold without being overly crunchy. The price is reasonable at $6 and the packaging is nice. The brush is a little bit larger than I prefer but it works. I used to be faithful to the clear mascara from ELF but I prefer the packaging of the NYX and I feel like it lasts longer. I have also used the Anastasia of …Read more

Brows - COVERGIRL - Easy Breezy Brow Volumizing Brow Gel

Glossier's Boy Brow is my favorite brow product and I'm always looking for a cheaper alternative. This isn't bad, but it isn't comparable to Boy Brow in my opinion. It's a similar idea but the product has a different look and texture and it doesn't have the same level of hold as Boy Brow. I would also say that this is slightly more pigmented. Initially this works …Read more

I love this shampoo! I have fine but thick wavy hair that is prone is frizz. I also consider my hair to be low porosity and my hair is easily weighed down. This shampoo gives me the perfect combination of cleanliness, bounce, moisture and frizz control. I typically try to use silicone free products but I find that the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil line works well for me. It isn't silicone …Read more

EDIT 1/25/20 -
I wrote this review too soon. I've had this product nearly 2 months and I was really enjoying it. However, within the past week or so I've noticed that the product is separating very badly. When I pump the product out I can see the oils in it (the product is oil-free, so I'm not sure what is it I'm seeing but it looks like oil). Mixing it up in my hand …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5

This is my first venture into hyaluronic acid but I'm pretty happy with my first purchase. I bought this because my skin was starting to look dehydrated and I felt like my fine lines were more visible than usual. I generally try to use this on damp skin and I always seal it in with a heavier moisturizer on top. Since dding this into my routine my skin looks much better. It looks well …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Soft Matte Complete Concealer

5.0

4 months ago

I love this concealer! I suffer from hormonal acne and this has been excellent for covering up my marks. I get everything from small whiteheads to hard, under-the-skin cysts and this has not failed me yet. It's matte so it takes down the shine on hard bumps. It has great coverage so it conceals redness. The formula is very long lasting as well and I usually have minimal fading by the end of …Read more
