Love the concept of a marker for liquid liner. I use all types of liquid liners from gels, to skinny markers, brush applicators, etc. I found the chunky-ness of this liner intriguing, as it reminded me of MAC's Kelly Osborne's rapidblack liner. The fact that this one is water resistant, and MAC's wasn't, made me want to try it.

I am comfortable with the size of …

Jul/11/2014

I suppose I am going to be the 1st to give this product 5 *'s. Let me begin by saying I am an NW30/ NC35 in Mac foundations ( yes, I am neutral), and have normal/ dry skin. I received this bronze BB as a sample size in Sephora's Sun Kit, and am glad I did!

I apply this BB cream after I prep my skin with my AM skin products. I squeeze a little bigger than a pea size onto my …

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

May/13/2014

Love me some cleansing oil and cleansing balms. Currently I use Cliniques TTDO balm, until I seen this gem at The Body Shop. I am super impressed, as this cleansing balm really does take away all my makeup. I wear long wearing/ waterproof makeup at that. A little is all you need as you rub it on dry skin, then emulsify it with water. It rinses away clean, no filmy residue. It doesn't blur my …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara

Love this mascara, HG for me! I have sparse, ever so sparse lashes and this mascara gives me volume like no other. The wand is small enough to really be able to get in there and coat each lash. Because it is small, it's also perfect for applying mascara to the lower lash line.

This mascara also gives me length. That's always a plus, but I love me volume! This mascara wears …

MAC Matchmaster fndtn is a fndtn that adapts to your skins undertones. It is a med coverage foundation with a semi- matte; yet dimensional finish to the skin.

I am NC30/35 ~ NW30 ish ( yes, I can wear both), and I wear 4.0. It is the largest bottle of the MAC foundations, minus the F&B. So u get a good bang for your buck here. I believe it retails for $33. It also has a handy …

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Blushbaby

Blushbaby is a matte neutral shade with a hint of pink to it. It's great for brides, professionals that have a m/u code to follow, as well as people just getting into makeup and want more of a natural look.

In the pan in looks pretty, yet subtle. I like to wear it when I am wanting a natural look. I am Nc30/40, and it does show up when using my 116 brush. I do have to build it up …

Ah...Sun Power. Let me start by saying I am NC30/40 ~ NW25/30...yes, pretty much neutral. I love Sun Power for days I want a heavier contour or rather when I want my contour to show purposely. I also have Give Me Sun, which is nice but sometimes I find it too subtle for contouring on me. I'll wear that when I'm going to the grocery store or lounging at home.

Sun Power may be …

Feb/24/2014

Oh how I love thee...ok, too dramatic I know but this product is amazing! I received a sample size awhile back from when I ordered some argan oil from JM's site. This sample sized turned out to be 1 oz, which is pretty big considering you only need a little to get the job done.

I am a sucker for hydrating products as well as faithful user of argan oil. When I 1st received this, I …

Cleansers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Cleansing Oil

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2014

I love cleansing oils as it takes off my waterproof m/u and sunscreen. I've tried them all and have to honestly say that even though I do love a lot of JM's products, her c/o was not a winner.

I found that it was extremely thick for a cleansing oil, it didn't emulsify very well, but more importantly it didn't break down or remove most/ all my m/u. My gel liner was …

I absolutely love this stuff! I am a fan of face oils. I have normal/dry skin and use this argan oil on a daily basis. I apply a few drops into my face right before my daily moisturizer, especially around my eyes and this keeps me hydrated all day long. My concealer goes on smoother and doesn't look dry or old. It doesn't affect my m/u at all.

I use it in the PM as my night …
