Combo, dehydrated, ultra-sensitive, very acne-prone skin. NC15-20/cool yellow/olive; Almay Buff, Revlon CS Buff, MUFE HD 117

This is such a popular foundation I finally had to give it a try after Revlon CS was reformulated again and I was without a longwear foundation for those days I need one. Unfortunately, it didn't work out for me. Shade 210 Buff (N) is a perfect match and the …

Combo, dehydrated, ultra-sensitive, very acne-prone skin. NC15-20/cool yellow/olive; Almay Buff, Revlon CS Buff, MUFE HD 117

Ridiculously expensive for the amount of product but the initial finish was beautiful, shade 210 Buff (N) matched my skin perfectly and it didn't break me out. Winner!... Not quite. Unfortunately, this does not play nice on my dehydrated skin and no amount …

I've been using this BB cream for about 5 years and it use to be a staple. During the last 5 years, they've reformulated it twice (at least) with this last one being a somewhat drastic change. The old formula(s) blended in perfectly to my NC15-20 olive skin, offered up medium natural looking coverage, set to a satin finish and wore like a champ no matter what my skin was doing. This new …Read more

Four lippies for this scent, on others :( I couldn't wait to try this, everything about this scent is so... me. Unfortunately, I don't get bourbon vanilla or oak wood, just pure, powdery floral. I love boozy vanillas, woods, and smokey scents and HATE florals so while it's still not a bad fragrance on me, it's exactly what I don't like when it should have been everything …Read more

Combo, dehydrated, ultra-sensitive, very acne-prone skin. NC15-20/cool yellow/olive; Almay Buff, Revlon CS Buff, Lancome Teint Idole Buff 2 (W), MUFE HD 117

Shade 203 was my closest match during the summer but I don't have one when my skin loses the little bit of color get. This looked great when first applied, didn't irritate my skin or break me out and didn't break up …

Nope! This did not play well with my skin at all. It looked cakey and powdery, never quite blended and 4 hours after application my face felt like a grease pit but looked like the Sahara. Coverage was decent and this make my skin …

Jun/24/2016

I have many foundations that are just half a shade too dark on my NC15-20/olive skin in the winter but don't work with my skin type in the summer and figured a lightening product would take care of that. Unfortunately, I'm impatient and didn't want to wait, preferring to pick something up at a brick and mortar store instead of ordering online. I should have waited :(
This is …

Jun/12/2016

I've passed this mascara over many times for no real reason, it just never piqued my interest I guess. It came in the Sephora Lashstash and ended up being my favorite. It's super easy to work with, it's definitely not a finicky mascara. One coat gives my long, sparse lashes a lush, healthy look. Two, enough intensity to make them stand out, even when I'm wearing a smokey eye …Read more

I tried this as part of Sephoras Lashstash and it was the one I was most excited to try because of reviews. I had to double, and then triple check that I was using the same mascara I had read about.
It was a thick, goopy mess that left me with clumped up, spiky lashes. I couldn't comb through them and attempting to got mascara all over my eyelid, which was impossible to clean up. The …

I sampled this as part of Sephoras Lashstash, otherwise I would have been instantly turned off by the brush. It wasn't as hard to work with as I thought it would be though. It was a little difficult to get an even coat on all of my lashes but worked out in the end.
This is a drier formula (which I prefer), and gave my longish but sparse lashes a soft, fanned out look. No clumps, no …
