Liquid - Urban Decay - All Nighter Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/29/2016

Part of me really, really loves this foundation. The pigment in this is so highly concentrated that I didn't even use a full pea sized drop for my entire face and neck. The formula is beautiful - it's full coverage, but still looks like skin. It blends so smoothly and sets to a true matte finish without being ashy or powdery looking. The shade I chose was #4, which is a yellow -toned …Read more

BB Cream - L'Oreal Paris - Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/16/2013

I generally love L'Oreal face products. TrueMatch and TrueMatch Lumi are two of my favorite foundations, so I figured I'd give their BB Cream a try. I mix shades N3 and W2 in the TrueMatch lines, so I picked this BB Cream up in the shade "Light". I tested it out on the back of my hand and it blended in perfectly, so I immediately assumed that I would absolutely adore it. When …Read more

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

3.0

Feb/02/2013

I loved the original Colorstay Liquid for Combination/Oily skin, but I could never find a shade that matched me and grew tired of mixing two shades on a daily basis, so when this product came out I was hesitant to pick it up. Thankfully I gave it a shot anyway because I really do like it. I have the shade 200 Sand Beige, which is admittedly still a little too pale for me, but it works. The …Read more

Mascara - Hourglass Cosmetics - Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara

4.0

Feb/02/2013

I'm usually very hesitant to try out a high end mascara because I feel like the drugstore mascaras are just as good as anything in Sephora for 1/4 of the price. But I'd never seen so many people rave about a mascara before I came across the Hourglass Film Noir, so I had to give it a try. This mascara is 100% worth the hype. Like all high end mascaras the Hourglass Film Noir is grossly …Read more

Toners - Boscia - Clear Complexion Tonic with Botanical Blast

3.0

Jul/10/2012

My skin absolutely adores Willow Bark, so I figured that this was going to be a product that would work well for me. It does, for the most part, but I will not waste my money on this again. While it is a solid toner--light and refreshing without being sticky--and my skin loves it, it's not worth the $24 that I spend on it.

To start, the texture of this liquid is kind of strange …

Masks - Mario Badescu - Special Mask for Oily Skin

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2012

I have very, very oily skin, so I'm always intrigued when products claim to minimize oil. I've tried a ton of masks with kaolin clay for this specific purpose, and they've all worked well, but this is the first one that's actually dried my skin out. Not necessarily dry to the point of flaky patches or irritation, but my skin has never felt so tight and parched before, even …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/26/2012

It's funny...I read the reviews on here and cool-toned girls hate it because it's "too warm," while at the same time warm-toned girls hate it because it's "too cool." Ladies, you have to know what works for your coloring. Naked 1 is good if you like predominantly warm tones, Naked 2 is good if you're more a fan of cool tones. #1 has a few cool tones, just …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Tarte Cosmetics - Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/26/2012

Tarte's eyelash curler is quite a bit different than others that I've tried. And I'm not a fan of it.

First, the finger-grip is atrocious. The plastic is too shiny (and, as a result, slippery) for any amount of control. I don't like the idea of and open grip anyway, as you're able to manage the curler better with the circle grips, but the problems with this …

Brows - REVLON - Brow Fantasy Pencil and Gel

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/26/2012

I have chocolate brown hair with natural red highlights and I bought the shade "Light Brown."

This product has both good and bad qualities. First of all I love that it has both a tinted brow gel and a brow pencil. You can use each side separately for a more natural, understated brow or you can use them together for a nice defined look. But it is quite pricey for a drugstore …

Primer/ Corrector - RIMMEL - Fix & Perfect Pro Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2012

Best drugstore primer for oily skin, hands down. I've been shelling out $30+ for Too Faced and Smashbox primers for years now because the drugstore primers just couldn't handle my skin. I've got to hand it to Rimmel for this one, I think I like my F&P Pro better than my Smashbox PPL. The texture is quite thick and creamy, but it's a surprisingly light feeling on the skin …Read more
