Lipstick - Kevyn Aucoin - The Molten Lip Color

3.0

26 days ago

This is a very comfortable matte lip product, but it doesn't wear as long as I'd like. I got the shade Tori which is a perfect everyday color. Typically, liquid lips are far too bold for me to wear casually. This is not. The doe-foot applicator is curved on one side to hug your lips and it's so easy to apply without a mess. It didn't peel or become crusty while I was wearing …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Volumizing Collagen (Mascara)

I wasn't wowed by this mascara, but I also don't hate it. I've used the whole tube and still don't have much to say about it. I like how it gave me some length and a volume, but it took about 3 coats to get the effect I like. I didn't have an issue with smudging, but it did flake. It washes off easy for me during cleansing. Overall, this mascara is just "meh" …Read more

Lipstick - ULTA - Sheer Lipstick - All Shades

4.0

I was looking for an affordable product I could apply without a mirror and wear every day. This product fits the bill. I got it in the shade Mischievous and it's a perfect casual color. It's definitely a dusty rose. In the tube, it looks way too dark for everyday wear, but it's so sheer that it turns out to be an MLBB shade for me! I'm about NC15 for shade reference. I have to …Read more

Loose Powders - ULTA - Mineral Illuminating Setting Powder

1.0

1 month ago

I am still scratching my head at how they can call this a setting powder. It's definitely illuminating but it's far too dark. It's so pigmented I can use it as a blush. And even then, I have to use a light hand or it comes off clown-ish. I like how it shines, but I can't imagine this all over someone's face without looking like they bathed in highlighter. I can see this …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - EcoTools - Crystal Perfecting Blender

I am comparing this sponge to the beauty blender. I was looking for an original beauty blender dupe and this one isn't 100%, but for the cheap price, it works. You can use it wet or dry so I tried it wet just like a BB. It does grow in size, but I found it gets way too soft for blending products. It was difficult to stipple or pat this sponge on my face when it was wet because it would …Read more

Bronzers - BH Cosmetics - Brilliance Bronzer

The bronzer looks nice in the pan and swatches nicely but comes off way too orange. I have a light neutral skin tone and prefer more gray-brown bronzers. It's easy to blend and has a nice sheen, but just too warm. The packaging is very pretty and slim which I appreciate. I got the lightest shade which looks like it would be too light, but this bronzer is super pigmented. A little goes a long …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

1 month ago

Not my favorite Vitamin C product. I thought this would be an easy way to introduce myself to vitamin C. I was looking for the brightening effects since I have some redness. I didn't like the texture of this product. It felt grainy going on and was a bit difficult to blend around my face. I gave it a week's worth of use before I just couldn't do it anymore. I know you are supposed …Read more

Moisturizers - Deciem - The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

5.0

1 month ago

My dry skin absolutely loves this product. I use it a lot in the winter because the wind is blistery and the air is void of any moisture where I live. I apply it after all my skin treatments and before my nightly moisturizer. I definitely use more than 2-3 drops because my whole face needs it and tiny drops don't cut it. It's a true oil. Not thick or gel-like at all. It keeps the flakes …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

2.0

1 month ago

I bought this product to help with the redness I have in my t-zone area and to brighten my complexion overall. I did not notice any difference and I think it slightly aggravated my dry skin. My face became a bit rougher on the cheeks and the redness didn't decrease. I stopped using it and the dryness and texture of my skin has improved. It didn't wreck my complexion, but I did not see …Read more

Sunscreen - COOLA - Bare Republic by Coola Sunscreen

I have dry skin and this sunscreen isn't my favorite. As mentioned in another review, it seems quite oily going on, but quickly turns into a silicone powder feel as you blend it around your face. Almost like a primer. I would even go as far as to say this is like a 2 in 1 sunscreen and primer. It leaves a slight white cast but goes away quickly. It's a matte finish which makes my face …Read more
