Blush - bareMinerals - Bounce & Blur Powder Blush

3.0

23 days ago

I bought the pink one and then got the mauve for free with an order. I'm disappointed in the way this blush feels. It's just a powder with a very soft feel and they can be applied with your fingers but that can give an unblended look because they are not cream to powder but a powder. I was hoping they would be like Shiseido's minimalist blush since Shiseido owns bare minerals but …Read more

My coloring: NC20, BB warm sand, Chanel B20, Chantecaille Vanilla, Bare Minerals Complexion Wheat, Clinique EB Stone. My current skin conditions are rosacea and dry skin with some flaking around the mouth.

I bought the color light medium and it's a good match.

Application: Used a BB and this went onto my dry skin very heavy and clung to every flake and emphasized every acne …

I bought a rose color--Praline rose-- in this long-wear lip gloss type of lip product. It went on as MLBB but soon turned fuschia. Very sparkly with noticeable glitter.

You are supposed to layer 3 applications to your lips. I left my lips bare to start. it was hard to get 3 layers on smoothly with the doe foot. The product dried really fast but the alcohol smell was intense! …

Blush - SHISEIDO - Minimalist Whipped Powder Blush

A fabulous whipped mousse blush. It's supposed to be a powder but acts like a cream although it dries to nothing unlike a true cream. I bought Setsuko which is a complex rose color: has coral, red and rose colored attributes. It's very concentrated and works over any TM or foundation that I've tried. Does not emphasize my texture. Withstands the day for me. I will be buying …

Lip Treatments - CLINIQUE - Superbalm Tinted Lip Treatment - Raspberry

2.0

Bought both colors in raspberry and currant but they might as well be clear for all of the color they impart. I can get the same feel and look from using aquaphor. If you want tinted lip balms look at Burt's Bees, Nivea and chapstick for cheap and great colors.These are not worth the money for nearly $20 a pop.

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer

4.0

2 months ago

I'm liking this moisturizer way better than the serum mainly because it smells neutral like cardboard and not like linseed oil. It's been working for my super sensitive rosacea skin that leans combo.This is good for sealing in all of my rosacea serums so I use it last. Has settled the flaking on my face from retin-a. Comes in a pump and is priced up there. Prices are the same as …Read more

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - Water-Infusing Electrolyte Moisturizer

4.0

2 months ago

I've been using this like Clinique's gel cream because that's what it feels like on my combo skin. I then top it at the end with the omega moisturizer to seal everything in. But those 2 moisturizers combined with my rosacea serums have saved my skin from the retin-a flakies. Love the tube, hate the price. PC prices are really bordering on luxury prices so a person HAS to wait for a …Read more

It took me 5 tries to find my color match. Supposedly only one Sephora had this in stock pretty far from me so I was left to guessing. I of course used their color picking tool but it let me down 4 times. I finally decided on Linen and it's close on my MAC NC20, Bobbi Brown Warm Sand, Giorgio Armani 5.

The texture is nice and dry and feels like nothing. I use it over a moisturizing …

Eye Makeup Remover - Almay - Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

These were on a list of the best eye makeup removers for 2019. My verdict? These are horrible. The pads are thin, not saturated and do not remove eye makeup in general not even speaking of long wear. That is a hopeless cause with these. They were cheap but I'd rather spend more for something that works in one pass. And I don't even wear a ton of eye makeup--usually mascara and eyeliner …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick - Whipped Caviar

3.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I wished I loved it but the formula makes my lips look dried out and parched even with balm underneath. The color also didn't suit me. I guess my lips are too pigmented because this lipstick gave me light Pepto-Bismol concealer lips. Just not flattering. I was hoping for the holy grail others had experienced. And because this was such a bust I don't want to try NYX's other lipstick …Read more
