Powder - Neutrogena - Mineral Sheers Compact Powder Foundation (All Shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/29/2018

While undergoing treatment for perioral dermatitis (google it), my dermatologist instructed me to switch to powder foundation only, and recommended Neutrogena as a brand. I was very skeptical at first, because my skin is very sensitive and has broken out with use of Neutrogena cosmetics in the past. After reading reviews on powder foundations here, and price comparing, I chose to go ahead and …Read more

Highlighters - wet n wild - MegaGlo Highlighting Powder - Precious Petals

Nov/05/2017

Let me just pile on the love for this product. I have a horrible makeup sin to confess: I did not use highlighter until about a month ago. I decided to try highlighting to give my complexion a much needed boost, and after researching, decided to try this one as a cheap alternative to The Balm's Mary Lou-Manizer (which I have a generous sample size of, thanks to Ipsy).

Wet n …

Eye Shadow - Tarte Cosmetics - Tartelette Tease Clay Palette

Oct/09/2017

I purchased this totally on impulse, grabbing it at Sephora on my way to checkout. The display got me, what can I say. I have never used Tarte products before, but this palette had all the things I love: compact, neutral tones, and a mirror included. The price wasn't horrible, either, for Tarte.

I have skin that is somewhere in the NW25-30 range, with brown eyes and brown …

I have naturally wavy-curly, fine-medium textured, color treated hair that is to the middle of my back. In my quest to find the perfect shampoo/conditioner combination (I use silicone containing styling products, so shampoo is a must), I decided to purchase this and the matching conditioner after reading reviews both here and on Amazon.

The texture is thick, and spreads more evenly …

Cleansers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Oct/01/2017

For reference, I am in my mid 40's with fair, dry, sensitive skin that only breaks out once a month (wink wink). I have one wrinkle on my forehead and the beginnings of crow's feet around my eyes.

This is my second go round with trying this method, and this time my skin fared much better. The difference being in the type of coconut oil I used. The first time I tried it, I …

Jun/15/2017

Love, love, love, LOVE this mascara. LOVE IT. I have lashes that are naturally curled already (please don't hurt me), so curl is not an issue for me. However, VOLUME is something I am always looking for more of, and I usually end up layering 2 different mascaras over each other in order to achieve the look I want without getting clumps. Normally I layer on a "thinner" mascara …Read more

I have been a Lancome Cils XL Booster user for years, and no matter what other primer I try, I always go back to Lancome. After seeing this as being a possible dupe that was sooooo much cheaper, I bought it.

I gave this primer what I consider my ultimate test: I wore it for a 12 hour shift at work. I am a night shift nurse, and my unit is busy ALL THE TIME, as in I spend my shift …

Styling Products - Ion - Keratin Dry Oil Mist

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2017

I decided to try this after reading MUAsAlbino's review. I have recently returned to using silicone-containing products after being silicone free for probably about 6 years now. My hair is dry (super dry), wavy/curly (2c), heat styled, and color treated with permanent color (Age Beautiful) to color grays every 6 weeks. Silicone containing hair products are flat out necessary unless I want …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Essence of Beauty - Crease

Apr/16/2017

I am not gifted at eyeshadow application, especially the outer v. I always applied too much product and everything ended up looking like one big blobby mess instead of a nice, smooth, pretty transition of beautiful colors on my lid. Enter these brushes. You see that teeny tiny one there? Yeah that one. That one is my best bud in the universe. If anyone ever tried to take my tiny little …Read more

Apr/15/2017

I have used this product for about 2 years now, since a fellow MUAer told me about it. My skin is dry and sensitive, with those cute super dry patches that form on the cheeks and flakes on the tip of the nose if not properly moisturized (yes, sorry oily skin girls, I'm one of *those* people).

If I go without using this product, and I have, stupidly, my skin absolutely 100% …
