This eyeliner is very good, almost perfect. The only thing I don’t like is the random bits of silver glitter in it. Everything I don’t like about this liner comes back to the glitter. They aren’t even large pieces of glitter that could pick out, but tiny pieces that serve no useful purpose. It glides on well without tugging, but if I need to run the pencil over the same spot, the glitter starts …Read more

I had swatched this in store and was disappointed that none of the shades seemed to work for my fair, but olive under-toned (Asian) skin. A few months later, I chose a sample of this from Sephora and was again bummed that the sample only had one “light” color Vanilla 2, which I thought was way too pink and too light for my skin. I decided to try it anyway and was amazed how perfect the color was …Read more

This eyeliner is a no-brainer. The color is a pure, metallic bright gold; no glitter, so no fallout; it glides on easily and smoothly (no skipping); the pencil isn’t too soft or too hard, it holds a point, but doesn’t tug; it lasts several hours (about 4-5) on my oily eyelids without migrating or fading; and it’s cheap! I bought mine for less than $7. I use this color more as a fun accent, so I …Read more

After Make Up For Ever reformulated their Aqua Eyes and I hated the new version, I went on the hunt for a new black eyeliner pencil that wouldn’t smug or faded into nothingness with my oily eyelids. After seeing this eyeliner as Allure’s Best of Beauty Winner 2017, I figured I’d give it a try. I’m not sure why, but it really irritates me when a cosmetics company only has their products available …Read more

After La Mer reformulated my beloved Gel-Crème to be a silicone-heavy, watered-down version, I had to find a new moisturizer. I bought a small size of this in a set that came with The Deep Cleanse exfoliator. It feels a bit heavier and creamier than the original La Mer Gel-Crème, and it doesn’t absorb as quickly as the original Gel-Crème did or leave a velvety finish, but it still fully absorbs …Read more

I chose this eyeshadow online, so I knew it was a gamble. When I first saw it in person, I was surprised how tiny the pan is; a little disappointing. The texture is amazing! It’s velvety smooth and glides on effortlessly. The color is a shimmery, metallic plum in the pan. On my lids, the color comes off flat: the shimmer and metallic elements are gone and it’s just a dark grayish black with …Read more

I received a large sample of this and it feels a little sticky when applying. The mini bottle lasted about four weeks. While it did boost my skin’s moisture and didn’t irritate or clog my pores, I didn’t notice anything else about it. Nothing. I really wish I could say more about this product, but that's just it: it only added moisture. In my opinion, it's too lack luster and …Read more

I received a large sample of this and was surprised when I opened the jar and it looked like an ointment rather than a cream. The texture is more like a gel-cream and has a bit of silicone-feeling slip to it. It glides of smoothly and instantly seems to absorb, soften, smooth, and plump the skin (much like a silicone-based primer, my favorite being Smashbox Original). Any extra on my fingertip …Read more

I’ve wanted this color for a while and finally took the plunge. I'm so glad I did. The color is a gorgeous mid-tone, neutral brown, not too warm, too cool, not diluted, nor too pigmented. The color I see in the pan, it the color it stays on my lids. The texture is incredible: it feels like silk and is very lightweight. It’s the most buildable I’ve ever used so I can make it as sheer or …Read more

This was ok. It didn't irritate my skin or cause a breakout, but it didn't moisturize either. Even though my skin is combination/oily, it felt dry a few hours after using this in place of my regular serum (SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF). There wasn't much improvement when I'd use over the serum. Also, even though it calls itself an "essence" this was the texture of a …Read more
