Definite HG status. I'm on my fourth jar of this and I can't imagine using anything else. Before I found this, I used Prescriptives Flawless Skin for years and I've tried the celebrated Vichy Dermablend and Clarins Instant Concealer, but none of those provided the coverage that this does.

Pros:
-Creamy and does not settle into fine lines
-Can be applied …

Styling Products - TIGI - BED HEAD Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray

5.0

Aug/04/2015

I love this. I don't use this to fix everything in place like I always thought was the point of hairspray, but more as a styling product. I find that if I spray this all over my longish wavy hair after air drying, and then scrunch/comb my hair a bit, it gives it body and defines the waves. I wouldn't say it adds a lot of shine, but it does help reduce my frizz. It's pretty …Read more

Moisturizers - Boots - No 7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream Normal/Dry Skin

I love this! It's very hard to find a facial moisturizer with SPF that actually feels creamy and sufficiently moisturizing. It's thick, but not suffocating and it makes my skin feel great. The only thing that keeps it from being perfect is that it doesn't smell that good. But still well worth it.

This is like a bad hair day in a bottle. I really wanted to like it since I like sea salt sprays and it smells amazing, but no matter how I try to use it, my hair looks absolutely awful. What I want a sea salt spray to do is to enhance my waves and give my hair some texture and definition. This reduces my natural waves, adds lots of frizz, and gives zero definition. I'm mystified as to …Read more

i would agree with the last reviewer who described this color as a pinkish coral. i would not call this neon, it's really not that extreme. i own maybe 6 or 7 baby lips and i would say that like "cherry me," this is one of the more pigmented shades. a very pretty and wearable color with a nice smell/taste.

i love this palette! i usually use foxy or w.o.s. as a base, then add a little of naked 2 in the crease and highlight with venus. the only color i never use is faint, the dark brown shade. at first i didn't bother with crave (the black color), either, but i read that it makes a good eyeliner and it does! it's super pigmented and there's very little fall out, so it's good …Read more

I bought this on a whim and didn't have particularly high expectations, but now I use it every day and I love it. I have thick, straight-ish-but-with-a-tendency-to-pouf-out chin-length hair that can sometimes be difficult. But now I use a dab of this after my hair has partly air-dried, along with a little little Aveda Brilliant Cream (to keep it from being frizzy). Usually I also use a …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Simple - Kind To Eyes Eye Make-up Remover

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/23/2013

it's funny that this is called "kind to eyes," and claims to remove waterproof mascara because a) it stings to use (a problem i've never had before with an eye make-up remover) and b) i found it impossible to remove all of my (non-waterproof) mascara with this. not recommended.

Jan/23/2013

at first i didn't think this was anything special, but it's really grown on me and now i use it at least once a day. first, it does an excellent job of moisturizing without being waxy, shiny or sticky. second, the pinkish-red color it leaves is subtle and flattering--great on its own or for refreshing/evening out a dark pink or red lipstick. third, it's really cheap and you get a …Read more
