Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid

2.0

Mar/07/2018

I will not be repurchasing for several reasons.

1. This sunscreen burns your eyes. I can't apply it around or above my eyes because it will eventually run down into my eyes and burn.

2. The formula is more of a liquid to powder. Therefore, if you don't work it in well during application you will have white globs on your face. Additionally, if you rub your face it …

Conditioner - DevaCurl - One Condition Delight Weightless Waves Conditioner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2018

I have oily, fine hair and this conditioner provides great moisture without weighing down my waves. My hair would be classified as wavy (2A or 2B).

The scent is hard to describe--almost a lemon cake? It's not strong and I don't smell it throughout the day.

I find this product works best when my hair is soaking wet in the shower. I use half the amount (about 3 …

Misc Beauty Tools - FLOWER Beauty - Ultimate 3-in-1 Blending Sponge

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2018

I like the texture and application better than my real techniques sponge. However, this sponge is too big for my face. The tip is too wide when damp which makes it really hard to get a precise application around my under eye and nose.

I've used this sponge to apply setting powders and concealers and it works great for both! I just wish the tip was a bit narrower so I could have …

Concealers - ColourPop - No Filter Matte Concealer

Jan/07/2018

No, just no. This product gets way too much hype. It is so finicky! I like to apply my concealer with a finger. This product does not react well to that. When you use a finger, you end up looking like a lizard person. It makes your skin look so scaly. The only way I found this to work is with a damp beauty blender over a water-based primer. This product does not layer well over silicone primers …Read more

Bronzers - MILANI - Baked Bronzer in Glow

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2018

Other users said the glitter in this product is not too obvious or can be tapped off the brush. NO. My face was covered in gold glitter everywhere I applied this bronzer--even after I tapped off the brush. The glitter consists of these huge gold chunks that are easily visible from standing distance. After application, I spent a couple of minutes in the mirror with a dense brush trying to brush …Read more

Cleansers - Pixi - Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2018

This drugstore product performs like a high-end one. I do use more than the recommended amount (a coin size) of each. The oil side removes my make up really well. I generally wear concealer, mascara, bronzer, lipstick, and highlighter. The cream cleansing side is a great gentle cleanser that leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized. There is no harsh fragrance, drying or irritation. I have …Read more

Lipstick - Kat Von D - Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Vampira

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2018

I returned this the same week I bought it.

After a couple of uses I could not justify it's cost ($20). This liquid lipstick:

*never dries down,
*is patchy,
*slightly drying,
*is difficult to apply with the long stem,
*does not layer well on its self, and
*accentuates dry patches.

Moisturizers - Farmacy - Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy

2.0

Jan/02/2018

I returned this to Sephora after trying it for a month.

This product never absorbed into my skin properly. It would transfer to my pillow and hair. I do feel like it helped lock in my moisturizer. However, there are products just as effective as locking in moisturizer that cost way less. I can't justify the $48 cost for just an occlusive.

I did not notice any of the …

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess Mascara

5.0

Jan/01/2018

I love this mascara! It gives plump, black lashes with two coats. It is a mascara you can wear to work or happy hour. I haven't had any problems with smudging. If I apply too much, it has flaked a bit on me.

I do think the packaging could be improved. It kind of looks like a toy.

Loose Powders - Kat Von D - Kat von D Lock-it brightening powder

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2018

I tried so hard to make this product work for me but ended up giving it away. I tried a beauty blender and brush. I tried it over different concealers (NARS radiant creamy, ColourPop no filter, and LA Girl pro conceal). Nothing made this powder look good.

I had the powder in petal. I have olive-toned, combo skin that leans oily. I had two major issues with this powder.

1) …
