Styling Products - Redken - Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam Spray-Mousse

I've passed on buying this in the past because I was afraid that this would make my med-fine, naturally curly hair either dry and unmanageable or frizzy like many volumizing products. I was so wrong. This stuff works like a regular mousse and smooths out any frizz, but isn't drying or sticky. It gives nice definition and bounce to my loose but normally frizzy curls without the crunch …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder

This product is a no for me. Not because it doesn't work, I tried this for about a month and it does a decent job of brightening the complexion and the price is great. I had no problems mixing this in with my night time moisturizer. No gritty feel and I also did not find it irritating when used as suggested. My issue with this is that every morning, no matter what moisturizer I added it to …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel

I got this in a set with the brow whiz from Ulta. It was actually cheaper than just the pencil on its own. This is an ok product and probably would work well for someone with fuller brows looking for a hold and definition but I have sparser brows and found this to be messy and the end result looked unnatural. Like mascara you have to wipe most of the product off of the wand or it makes a huge …Read more

I love this and have the shade Tan. For reference I have a medium neutral skin tone normally but already have some summer color and have had adjust my foundation color accordingly.

This gives my face a natural looking warmth and subtle glow without being sparkly or over done. I cant speak …Read more

I've recently come back to this after many years as a summertime makeup. For every day I mostly wear a tinted sunscreen. Elta MD's tinted UV Clear or Sun Bums tinted mineral cream. I often add pigment drops or a liquid bronzer to adjust for my skintone but wanted a little more coverage for the summertime without the weight of another cream or liquid product that will hold up to heat and …Read more

Liquid - COVER FX - Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation

I'm on the fence about this foundation. It looks nice on but it's a real PIA to apply and blend so that it doesnt look heavy. I use the N40 shade which wears a bit warmer on me than that shade in the custom cover drops. This has to be set with powder. It has a thick almost sticky consistency that can be time consuming to blend out and doesnt completely set without powder. I prefer using …Read more

I've been on a Bite Beauty kick the last month. I really like their lip treatments and lipsticks. I have several minis and enjoy their shade range and formulas. In my last order I got 3 pretty generous samples of these multisticks and really liked all of them but the cashew is the first one I bought a full size in. I think Sephora describes the shade as a rose taupe and that's kind …Read more

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser

This is a mild and gentle cleanser that I've come to like a lot over the past year. I dont have any issues with it removing my makeup but I also take my time to massage this in thoroughly and use a muslin Face cloth to remove it before rinsing it off. I never leave it on without rinsing. This doesnt leave my face tight or strip it dry but one problem (in our house anyway) is that this is a …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bite Beauty - Agave Lip Mask

I actually love this stuff. Other than their balm this is one of the few lip products I have ever used that actually leaves my lips in better condition than when I put it on. Most balms or treatments feel great when you have them on but as soon as they wear off my lips feel parched but not this. I've read some people have a reaction to something in the formula , I have a similar problem with …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bite Beauty - Agave Lip Balm

This is my HG favorite lip balm with one huge caveat. The formula is way too soft and melts way too easily. If it melts away in my pocket in a climate controlled house in February its gonna be an unusable mess during the summer months unless I depot it into a container. Otherwise this actually moisturizes and heals dry cracked lips leaving them in better condition not parched and dehydrated like …Read more
