Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Hairdresser's Invisible Oil

It's really pricey, no question but it is also very effective for my short, thick coarse hair. I received a small sample as part of an Ulta gift bag and immediately fell in love. The smell is delicious but what got me was how well it works. I put a very small drop in my hair while wet then blow dry. I prefer 2nd day hair because it holds a style better than freshly washed, and this product …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash

I got the mini size as part of a kit from Ulta and I must say I really like this mascara. It's a bit wet and it would be nice if it were waterproof but overall I am satisfied with the performance and wear. I get nice length, volume and separation with just two coats. It does not flake but it does smudge after about 8 hours of wear (thus the waterproof wish). The pigmentation is great …Read more

I have this in Perfect Red and it is an exact dupe for MAC Ruby Woo except it is not dry or hard to apply AND it's only $6. It's matte but not at all drying on the lips. It's very creamy and easy to apply and reapply. This is a true blue based red. It does transfer a bit but again, touch ups are a non issue with this lipstick. I absolutely love it and will definitely repurchase.

I must be one of the few who don't love MAC lipsticks. I got this as part of a mini kit from ULTA and this is the only item I don't love. I just can't wear MAC lipsticks. They are so dry and hard to apply. This one is no different. I am good with the matte finish, but it didn't go on smoothly or evenly at all. It felt like I was pulling too hard on my lips for a lipstick. I …Read more

So color me obsessed with this spray. It really does what it claims. I used it to dampen my RT sponge and to set my makeup for the day. I get a good 8 hours of staying power with this spray. I am really impressed and now I understand the hype. I am on my 2nd bottle and will continue to repurchase.

Pressed Powders - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Pores Illumination

I am shopping my stash as of late and rediscovered this. I am now using it daily to set my foundation with great results. It's somewhat illuminating, but it's very subtle and soft and just like the original, it does a great job of hiding pores and excessive shine. A little goes a very long way, so this will last quite some time. I don't use the sponge that's included - I use a …Read more

This was on sale at Ulta for $10 so I snatched it up in blue and holy moly I am in LOVE! This has replaced my other HG's, hands down. The packaging is so cute and unique and the curved brush performs really well. I get both length and volume from this product and the formula itself is the perfect consistency - not too thin or thick. It's highly pigmented - the blue is really intense and …Read more

Got this as part of a kit from ULTA and I am pleasantly surprised. I get both length and a decent amount of volume with only 2 coats. The formula itself isn't too wet and the synthetic brush does a great job of separating the lashes as well as getting those little ones in the corner. It's nicely pigmented and thankfully, no flaking or smudging! That said, there are comparable …Read more

Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24h Longwear SPF 15 Foundation

After some trial & error I finally found my shade. I am 220 in Fenty, W4 in L'Oreal True Match Lumi and 320 in this. I definitely appreciate the vast shade range. It is NOT 24 hour foundation. I got to hour 13 before it started to wear off. The formula itself is light, easy to blend and the coverage is buildable. There is no scent and naturally I love the pump. That said, its so …Read more

Mascara - ULTA - Limitless Lashes Mascara Lengthening + Volumizing

Aug/06/2018

I got this as part of a 19 piece gift bag from Ulta. I am a fan of Ulta's products, but this mascara was pure trash. I don't know what it is but it doesn't do a thing to lengthen or volumize whatsoever. I think the formula itself is too wet. The brush is big but not too big - but application is a total fail. Because it's so wet it got all over my lids and then transferred to …Read more
