Treatments (Eye) - Unlisted Brand - Patchology FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2018

I thought I would have found this brand , Patchology, listed here but I am the first! I tried the Rejuvenating Eye Gel Patches since I love cooling eye patches (Skyn Iceland is my go to). I didn't find these any better than Skyn Iceland's version, and I hate the form. These are gel patches (as opposed to gel+fabric) and I think they are flimsy and worse, easily gouged. I always manage …Read more

Well...I don't know what to say about the bad reviews, because this has become my HG. So glad I tried it even after the mixed reviews. This is my experience....shade Warm Beige is a perfect match , so I am pleased. I like the packaging as it is easy to travel with. To me this is a heavier-medium coverage foundation which can be built to full. I don't get much out of "a few …Read more

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Vice Lipstick - Rapture

May/23/2018

Rapture and Sheer Rapture are my go-tos when I just want a pretty and 'goes with almost anything' lip look. As others have mentioned, the formula of the Vice lipsticks is really comfortable...I find all versions (from cream to matte, metallic etc) really easy and non drying on the lips.
Rapture is a dusty -plum with a creamy texture (cream formula)and applies quite opaquely so you …

Not for me. I thought I really liked it when I first used it. But 1. Something in it doesn't get along with me because 1. I often had red bloodshot eyes or blurry vision after wearing this all day and 2. It dried up way too quickly. Obviously I won't repurchase. But the tube is cute and it does give a thick black coat to the lashes.

Makeup Brushes - bareMinerals - Bare Minerals Be Luxe Performance Brush

This brush works well when used as indicated (short outward strokes). I now use it for most of my foundations and really like the effect. The shape makes it easy to work around the nostrils and in the chin area, although I agree with the previous review, it isn't the softest brush around. One other caveat...this really soaks up and 'hides' foundation....the brushes are so dense …Read more

I tried this because of the reviews and citings online or in magazines. Meh....it hasn't impressed me. Like a reviewer below, I find it way too dry and for me the color taupe is more like a warm blonde color. I prefer Sephora brand's waterproof version a thousand times to this (similar packaging only NYX has a nice spoolie while Sephora's has an odd comb on the other end) but …Read more

Mascara - Urban Decay - Troublemaker Mascara

Nov/05/2017

Not for me. I had wanted to try this due to the hype but it isn't what I need in a mascara. My lashes are not short, but like my hair, are finely textured. Unless I do 3 coats, I get zero volume. As others mentioned, the brush is plastic and pokey...so while it is easy on clumping, I just dislike it. If you like less intense looking lashes and lenghth with less volume, this may be for you …Read more

I've waited a few weeks and a shade tweek to review this. I first got this in 14 Silk, due to its more neutral undertones. It looked so light in the bottle (pump, yay) but eventually adjusted to my skin tone... Almost. I find 16, Sandstone, a better overall match for my skin still tinged from summer, and that this line generally runs light.
I use 2 pumps to cover my face and use a BB …

Great little sponges! I got them in a value pack with 2 original sponges plus contouring sponge. I use these damp to blend out under-eye concealer, and they work great! Perfect size. I also blend around my nose at times too. Used dry they work great for cleaning up e/s fallout and i also use them to buff out shadow on my lids....as well as to apply finishing powder to set under eye concealer …Read more

I got this in July at Sephora's Weekly Wow deal, so it was half off. Yes I smell a slightly fishy scent, which lingers on my finger, but washes away easily. I do not smell this staying on my face. I like the gel-cream texture, it absorbs quickly and I like its hydration. So far I have not noticed major changes in puffiness, but my eyes look brighter and the skin around them hydrated …Read more
