Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Rose Gold Eye Shadow Palette - Nude Rose Gold

I am very sensitive to eye shadows and have had to endure red burning eyelids caused by various brands, and I have thrown away so many expensive palettes. I gave up shadows almost completely for a few years. Recently because my makeup seems a bit incomplete without any eyeshadow I tried this based on generally good reviews for e.l.f., and it did not irritate my eyes or eyelids AT ALL. I am so …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Active Naturals Skin Relief Moisture Repair Cream: Intense Moisture

5.0

I have the giant 306 ml jar of this with a brown lid. It's called Aveeno Active Naturals Intense Relief Moisture Repair Cream. That's about ten ounces and it has lasted me many months even though I use it on my face, neck, arms, legs and back. It not only relieves itchy skin and flaky dry skin but it is good for the complexion. I consider it the best line of moisturizers with the fewest …Read more

Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - 4-Kit Eye Enhancers - Pure Romance

The only good shade in this palette is the dark lavender, the third one, which has some sheen to it only if you press it very hard and apply it with a fingertip. But it's only a minimal sheen. The others are very chalky, dry and flyaway. This palette is the opposite of buttery and pigmented and I cannot create a good eyeshadow look with it. I had to add shadows from another palette to …Read more

Highlighters - wet n wild - MegaGlo Highlighting Powder

4.0

3 months ago

This is the best highlighter I have tried so far. It's better than e.l.f. It blends like a dream with fingers or brush or wet sponge. I got it in Blossom Glow and it gives perfect highlighting. It can be as dramatic or subtle as you like because it blends well. I am completely happy with it.

Update Oct. 3/19. Although this is great, I still use the liquid ones because they are …

Highlighters - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Baked Highlighter

3.0

3 months ago

I bought several kinds of highlighter based on rave reviews on the web. I cannot recommend this one which I think is the worst. First, you have to scrape off the top layer or it does nothing, because of some kind of coating. But even after scraping it, the highlighter does not blend, or even show up if you try applying it with a brush. And I was using the e.l.f. highlighting brush which I also …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Colorstay 16 hour eye shadow quad - Moonlit #555

555 Moonlit is a very nice, all purpose shadow palette. It has not irritated my eyelids yet. I don't use the dark brown shade but the other three shades are perfect for the lid, crease and highlights. It gives a very natural look with a slight glow. I have applied it in different ways and it always looks natural and pretty. I got the idea from a youtube tutorial showing beautiful results …Read more

I have been looking for a perfect wet look highlighter. I got this because of rave reviews on youtube. It's fine but it's no better than the others! Including e.l.f. shimmer powder and baked highlighter, and WnW dewy primer. I still can't achieve the look I see everywhere and I will just keep experimenting. Don't get me wrong, it does give nice highlights but where is the …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Made For All Lipstick by Color Sensational - Plum For Me

I don't know why there aren't more reviews for this new line of lipsticks. Mine is Mauve For Me, and I like it so much that I bought another one. I don't care for any of the other shades in this line and don't believe that any of them are universal. But Mauve For Me is almost perfect and I reach for it all the time. So I now carry one in my purse and keep one at home. It is …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - The Transparent Facial Bar

I have used this off and on since my teenage years when I wanted a clear soap which was good for blemishes with no added moisturizers or perfumy scent. However, the last batch I got is not the same. It has a musty smell, and the ingredients are completely different. Why don't they change the name if they change the entire product? After realizing I didn't like it anymore I gave away the …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - wet n wild - Photo Focus Dewy Face Primer - Till Prime Dew Us Part

4.0
Created with Sketch.

I bought this to use as a wet look highlighter and not a primer as I don't use foundation. The dewy effect is there but I wouldn't want it all over the face. I use it only as an accent for the key areas of the face. The good thing is it has a shimmery glow, but not chunks of glitter like so many of them do. It does look quite subtle. However, it's patchy and starts to disappear …Read more
