Brows - shu uemura - H9 Hard Brow Pencil - Seal Brown

Wow, I really don't know what it is about Shu Uemura, but it makes my skin completely eat itself. This eyebrow pencil is alright, though you have to press really hard to get color and I think in that case you lose some precision. But jeez, after using this for a week or so my eyebrows developed all of these white bumps that looked like whiteheads. I stopped for a while and then tried it …Read more

Great selection of colors, and comes with a lot of product in a nice container. This is one of the few lines of foundation that have a yellow enough undertone to match my skin, but unfortunately it doesn't work for my dry skin. It seems to dry out my skin even further and makes me get unattractive flaky patches throughout the day. Marginally better with primer, but still not a good fit for …Read more

This is worth the hype. My skin doesn't really love it (some breakouts, etc.) but the coverage cannot be beat. It looks extremely natural and truly covers everything with only a small amount. Good foundation for a special occasion, but for everyday I only use it as concealer.

I don't necessarily endorse buying the palette but you kind of have to. The colors in the palette …

Moisturizers - Alpha Skin Care - Enhanced Lotion - 10% AHA

Does it smell like glue? Yes, definitely. Can it give you a terrible reaction if your skin hates AHA? Yes. Alpha hydroxy can be very harsh and it really does not work for all skin types. I think it's best to be cautious with this lotion and apply it sparingly at first until you know for sure that your skin is OK with it. But for me, it has really helped to clear up the acne on my chin …Read more

Concealers - Tarte Cosmetics - Maracuja Creaseless Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

I have had dark undereye circles since I was 17 and have a hard time finding something that will properly cover them. I like the coverage of creamy concealers but they fade too fast, get in my eye creases, and look fake or cakey. This concealer looks a lot like Amazing cosmetics concealer (high coverage, glowy skin-like finish), but has way better staying power. I pair it with a luminizing …Read more

I loved this so much that I brought it everywhere with me for a week, and then lost it, so now I have to buy again. I got so many compliments - it looks very natural and youthful and has no taste/scent (I hate perfumey lipsticks! yuck). Doesn't stay on a terribly long time, which is why I had to take it everywhere and hence why I lost it, but still worth the money.

Used to love this product back in the day, now it does nothing for me. I'm not sure if they changed the formula since they discontinued it a while ago, but the new version from Sephora doesn't even show up on my face, as if I am not wearing any blush at all.

I agree with the post below. I don't get it. This worked OK -- not great -- for me. I couldn't really see it very much, and when I did notice it, it never looked great. I don't know, maybe I am not using the right brush to apply but I prefer other luminizers. The kicker is that it crumbled into a nasty mess about a month after I bought it. It is unacceptable to pay so much for a …Read more

So far I love this foundation. I have it in 564 and the color works very well for me, which is of course important. But I also really like the finish of it - I prefer a dewy, natural look, but it's hard to find a natural looking foundation that also has decent coverage. This does a great job at both. I found that it lasted well throughout the day, but I have dry skin/no oiliness. Plus I …Read more

Eyeliner - Smashbox - Double-Ended Eye Brightener

This pencil is crap. I just got it from Sephora a week ago and it's going back ASAP. Both of the pencil sides are too dry so you have to press really hard (which makes my makeup come off). Plus the pigment is lacking, so there is almost no color - I can't see the highlighter color at all. The inner rim liner marginally works, but I have a Korres white eyeliner that works like 5x better.
