Lips - Chapstick - (All Flavors)

4.0

Nov/01/2017

The receptionist at my work gave me a tube of this in the Sugar Cookie version (said she found a bunch of them on sale for like 25 cents but I didn't ask where.) I like it a lot. It feels smooth and moisturizing and it smells just like freshly basked sugar cookies. I won't repurchase though because Chap Stick is owned by a parent company (Pfizer) that tests on animals.

Foundations - wet n wild - Coverall Cream Foundation

Created with Sketch.

Oct/17/2017

I forgot how much I love this foundation. When it stopped being sold in stores (replaced by the PhotoFocus line) I thought it'd been discontinued. I was as sad as it's possible to be about a makeup item being phased out. Then I realized that this product is still on Wet n Wild's website but I was hesitant to purchase. I'm weird when it comes to online shopping and try to avoid …Read more

This review is for the larger sponge only. It's sold separately with a metal stand that you can keep your sponge on, which is a great idea. I'll probably never actually use the stand, because my cats will get a blending sponge in their clutches and play with/destroy it given the opportunity, so I have to store mine in a drawer. But still, it's a nice touch.

This is my …

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Sun Bum Lip Balm SPF 30 - All Flavors

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/04/2017

I went to Ulta to purchase a Sun Bum sunscreen and Sun Bum was buy one get one half off. This was $2.99 originally, so I only paid around $1.50, but still I feel like it was a waste of money.

This is such a "meh" lip balm. It's unexpectedly oily because it looks like any regular lip balm in stick form but feels like a lip oil. I don't really mind the oily feeling in …

Liquid - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Flawless Finish Foundation

1.0

Sep/01/2017

***EDIT: After having used this foundation for 3 months, I can safely say I'll never use it again. I still have some product in the bottle (quite a bit) but the pump and lid completely broke in every way and the product has become so thick that I can't even get it out of the bottle effectively. My face has also been breaking out like crazy (in the beginning my skin didn't seem to …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Hard Candy - Sheer Envy Hydra-Prime Primer Lotion

Aug/17/2017

*** EDIT: After using this product for 3 months I realized one thing that made me take off one lippe. While I originally thought this was moisturizing enough for my normal skin, now that the fall months have rolled around it's not doing the job. I need more moisturization when the weather gets cooler. I would use this in the summer again but it's not going to cut it when winter rolls …Read more

Mascara - Soap & Glory - Thick & Fast Flash Extensions Effect Mascara

Aug/04/2017

I've been exclusively using the Essence I Love Volume mascara ever since Too Faced sold out to Estee Lauder. When that happened I decided not to support Too Faced anymore, so I couldn't buy my (now former) HG mascara (Better Than Sex).

I wanted to try something else, and between this and the Stila Huge Extreme Lash, I chose this one. The first time I tried this I didn't …

Masks - Freeman Beauty - Dead Sea Minerals Facial Anti-Stress Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/26/2017

I decided to try this mask because it's cheap ($4.29 at Ulta, + the one I got had a $1 off coupon) & because of the smell, which is beyond amazing. I was expecting a salty, ocean-like fragrance but it actually has a lavender & bergamot scent (which I find so soothing). The color of the mask itself is a bright aquamarine. I appreciate that the packaging is a squeeze bottle as opposed …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Tree Hut - Moroccan Rose Shea Moisturizing Body Wash

I love this body wash. It was around $5-$6 at Walmart for a 17oz bottle. It lathers well, is moisturizing, and makes you clean. The scent is a beautiful, slightly almond-y, rose fragrance. I'll repurchase because it's good, inexpensive, and accessible, and Tree Hut is a cruelty-free brand.

Lotions/ Creams - c. booth - Peppermint Vanilla Body Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2017

I bought this lotion last winter but am still using it, even during the summer. It's moisturizing but not too heavy. The scent is a perfect combination of peppermint and vanilla. I had a c.Booth lemon body butter back in high school that I loved which is what prompted me to pick this up, and I love it just as much. My favorite thing about this lotion is it has micro-fine shimmer in it which …Read more
