Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Argan Oil

May/23/2016

I don't put this directly on my face (so this review is not about how well it does on my face). I use this in a slightly different way than I'd say most women. I add this to my bath water and soak for about 20-30 minutes. I makes my hair very soft. Also, my skin is well moisturized. Now here comes the "different" and frankly somewhat personal use I have for argan oil. My …Read more

I'm really liking this liquid matte lipstick! I bought Think and Pool Party. They were $3.99 each at a little cosmetics/hair/jewelry/accessories store in my local shopping mall. Think is a vibrant pastel Barbie pink (blue pink); Pool Party is an light aqua blue. The formula is a little dry, but it's a cheap matte lipstick so it's to be expected. It's not terrible though. …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Aug/13/2015

This cleanser is great! It's mild and it thoroughly cleanses my face, even removes all my makeup. This is the first cleanser I've ever used regularly that does not contain an acne medication (except Dove bar soap, which I've never had a bad experience with). I really like how it foams because I have oily skin. Yet, I don't feel dry after using this. Now, if my skin is …Read more

Masks - Unlisted Brand - Body Mud Treatment

Jul/28/2015

I bought this from TJ Maxx because I wanted to try a new mud mask and learned in esthetician school that dead sea minerals are great for your skin. So I got this for about $5 (but that's a TJ Maxx price, the actual price is like $8 - $15). It works really well! if you want to use it as a drying mask, it does a good job of getting rid of impurities. If you use it wet, like sit in a warm …Read more

This cleanser contains a great Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which is good for acneic skin and also fine lines and wrinkles. It helped clear up my acne more quickly than any other cleanser I've noticed. It did however make my skin dry around my cheeks and nasolabial folds (parentheses). So I had to use it every other day. BUT... this cleanser, I'm about 95% sure, is the cause of my eyelashes …Read more

Now that I've used this palette a few times, I can definitely say that I like it! I use the yellow powder to set my yellow cream concealer to hide my dark undereye circles, then I put the beige powder over that to make it more skin-colored. The shimmer highlight is great! It's not glittery, it's very luminous :) This palette is awesome!

Bought this today as a …

Liquid - BECCA - Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2015

Becca's ever-matte foundation is some really great stuff. I have oily and acne-prone skin. This foundation has not broken me out. It gives me a matte finish, but it's not a "flat" matte. After a little while, the matte finish begins to change due to the oil coming through, but it's a naturally gradual change. Like, I'll go from matte to demi matte to natural …Read more

For $3, this stuff is a must-have for anyone! Whether you're a makeup artist or just getting into makeup. It has excellent ingredients that hydrate, soothe, and freshen-up your skin/makeup. I even have oily skin and i love this stuff! I use this setting spray when I wear cream-to-powder foundation that can tend to get cakey, or any "matte" foundation that I own; it livens up my …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

4.0

Apr/27/2015

This is an excellent drugstore foundation! One of the best I've ever purchased. It does not break me out, has a nice finish (I wouldn't say completely matte... more like demi-matte), and the color range is actually pretty good IMO. Plus, I got this for like $5 at Wal-Mart! I originally bought it because I am in esthetician school and we are required to wear makeup everyday, but most …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - AVEDA - Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Creme

Apr/13/2015

I go to an Aveda Institute, so we got to try this eye cream first. It's a great undereye moisturizer. I cant really account for how well it diminishes dark circles or anything like that. To me it's simply a nice moisturizer to keep my undereyes from getting too dry and irritated (from using concealer and power and stuff). It's rich, but it's not heavy when applied. …Read more
