I'll be documenting my almond oil usage here.


My skin: normal, not much problem with visible pores except for my nose. Normal/combo skin, oily t-zone and cheeks get dry if I don't moisturizer or a while. The only place I get bad pimples and whiteheads is my upper lip. They occasionally pop up on my chin and lower forehead. They're not small pimples but not large …

For now, this is my HG razor!


The razor fits very nicely in my hand and feels secure, not flimsy. With water, the razor releases a cream-gel so you don't need to use shaving cream! I just use a bar of soap for added moisture. The shave itself is very easy and smooth so it doesn't even feel like you're shaving.


I took away one lippie because it does …

I have combination skin: cheeks can get dry, but not usually if I moisturize regularly. Problem T-zone (oily upper lip, in between eyebrows) that breaks out. I thought trying to control the oil build-up might improve my breakouts there. I also prefer using a gentle scrub to a cleanser because I have milia.


I haven't tried any products specifically for oil control, so this …

OT: I didn't have the problem that the other reviewer did--my packaging was just like the other ones. I don't think that that type of thing should thing should factor into a rating, when obviously that isn't going to happen to every tube (and just as likely to happen to any other color). That doesn't help other MUA-ers, does it?


REVIEW: I love the e.l.f …

Palettes - NYC New York Color - On Location Complete Makeup Kit

Seems that ALL palettes are only good on lighter coloring, EVEN basic brown!

Either that or if you have a cooler skin tone, it features all shades that will look chalky! Skip this kit if you have a neutral or warm skin tone. The colors are not flattering.

The colors are much lighter than what you see in the picture, as I learned when I received these in the mail!


These are literally a "day" eyeshadow for me. Without primer, these shadows barely show up on my slightly tan skin but add enough color and pigment to add depth and dimension to my eyes. These are good shadows I would apply mindlessly looking my car overhead …

Today I was digging through my lipgloss box and decided to try this gloss that I had gotten as a gift from a friend.


Let me say that this lip gloss is not very pigmented -- to my delight. It offers subtle shimmer and sheen. If you're looking for the deep red that is in the tube, you will NOT get that at all. I understand that this looks different on different people. My lips …

I love these glosses! They are perfect for everyday looks because the colors are more like tints which are super flattering, I can apply a little and smooth it around and it moisturizes and freshens my lips, plus it's not sticky.


I have about half of the possible shades and will continue to buy more. I haven't found a shade I didn't like!

This is not a mascara where you can just swipe it on without looking in the mirror and go (for me, those types of mascaras are Full n Soft, Voluminous, LashBlast) but if you take the time to make this mascara work, the payoff is really, really good.


This mascara is to me, very similar to Covergirl's LashExact Waterproof. Both mascaras are quite long lasting but are prone to …

This is a pretty good pencil liner that gets liquid-like (keyword like) results. This is the first of its kind that I've ever used, and while I'm definitely not going to say it's HG, it will certainly hold me over until I find the next best thing for me.


If you want a longer lasting line, of course set it with a powder or eyeshadow. This is CRUCIAL is you want a …
