I got a sample of this in my Birchbox and immediately ordered a full size, so yeah, I kinda love it. I’ve never used any other Sunday Riley product before, and I’m not really attracted to the brand, so I was surprised tbh. I don’t consider it to be THAT expensive—you can buy it in a 15mL size for $40 and 35mL for $80, BUT it lasts forever. I think the 15mL will last me at least 6 months, since …Read more

Moisturizers - Andalou Naturals - CannaCell Dreamy Night Cream

11 days ago

I just realized I have gone through 4 tubs of this and just bought 2 more…and I’ve NEVER been so loyal to a moisturizer, so…review time!

The Andalou CannaCell line is formulated with hemp stem cells, hemp seed oil, and a bunch of other oils, hence the name. This is the only CannaCell product I use, the day cream has panthenol in it (boo, hiss, cystic acne) but this is absolutely not too …

Tinted Moisturizer - Andalou Naturals - 1000 Roses Color + Correct Sheer Nude CC Cream with SPF 30

I picked this up at Whole Foods because it was on crazy sale and I’ve been trying to find an alternative to my beloved Paula’s Choice Resist Mineral Sunscreen. (It’s more $$, have to order online, and I’m trying to see what laying off silicones does for my skin.) They’re both SPF 30 (zinc oxide), both 2oz tubes. The scent is definitely very, very strong. I get that it’s the gimmick for this line …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Super Lustrous THE GLOSS

5.0
Created with Sketch.

23 days ago

It’s kind of crazy how changing the applicator to a big fat doefoot makes this lip gloss so much better (for me). I have Indulge In It, one of the newer shades, a brown-based slightly darker nude. I think it’s perfect. The texture is thick but not sticky and staying power is really decent. Application is smooth & not streaky. The tube doesn’t leak (yet). This shade is great for a …Read more

Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Wander Beauty Love Lock Hydrating Lip Gel

HEADS UP this is now $9 (originally $24) on the Wander Beauty website, if you want it!

This is a slim tube lipstick in only one shade, Parisian Red. Imo this is a stain-type product. It doesn’t truly stain but gives the look of perfect popsicle lips. It is legit *weightless* and I adore the formula. I don’t notice a strong smell but there is a semi-strong chemically taste that is not …

Palettes - NARS Cosmetics - Makeup Your Mind Face Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

If I had to pick an overall favorite makeup brand, it would 100% be Nars. Of course there are hits & misses, but the general quality, aesthetic, ideas behind the shades, and everything else really work for me. I picked this palette up as a treat for myself (it seems I get myself a lot of “treats” lol) to make traveling easier: I already know I love the Laguna bronzer & Dolce Vita blush …Read more

Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury - K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick

I have this in “Glowing Jen” (tawny rose, named after Jen Aniston). Glowing Jen is a K.I.S.S.I.N.G. formula lipstick from the Hot Lips 2 collection and has a GORGEOUS fancy leopard print tube. Obviously this is an expensive lipstick. This is also my first CT product.

I’m not sure what’s up with a lot of these reviews because the formula is wonderful. It’s balmy and hydrating yet still …

Lipstick - Rouge Bunny Rouge - Sheer Lipstick - Perfume of His Gaze

4.0

This lipstick confuses me but I do like it. I’m also not sure if it’s still on the market?

The tube is sturdy & sleek black plastic with a white flower (?) design. It feels luxe and well made but not OTT. The formula is super nice. It’s a sheer with nice heft and glide but doesn’t entirely sink into the lips so it’s not 100% perfect (for me) but still up there in terms of sheer …

Bronzers - NARS Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder - Casino

5.0

Perfect bronzer with insane lasting power. I’m not sure why I haven’t tried this before (ahem…the price). I have olive skin and get tan in the summer and so bronzer, while weirdly being my least favorite makeup item to buy, is an absolute necessity to match my face to my bod. Casino has this insane buttery texture (like the Nars blushes) that seemingly never gets weird no matter how much you …Read more

I have this in Tan, which is the 3rd out of 4 shades (from lightest to deepest). It’s very sheer, which is how it’s supposed to be. I like it but I don’t totally love it. Full disclosure, I have olive skin and get tan in the summer no matter how much sunblock I apply, so I need bronzer to match my face to the rest of me. So, since I have olive skin…this is too sheer for me! Because of that, I …Read more
