I mostly use sponge blenders for blending under eye concealer or highlight, occasionally with cushion foundation, the shape of this is horrible for these. There is no way to grip it and it doesn’t have the nice round bottom that regular beauty blenders do. It is also a very rough, hard texture. Get the eco tools sponge instead if you need a cheaper sponge, although that one is sadly becoming hard …Read more

I really like this. Other than red lips, I avoid matte liquids, they are uncomfortable and too pigmented for my current tastes. This is more of a sheer long wearing lipstick. And it works well if you put some balm on top, which is the best part for me. It doesn’t clump or gather or come off. So you can put it on and have it last but still have moisturized lips. I like the shade Zuma the best, it …Read more

I really love this so far. I have dry skin that gets shiny pretty easily, so finding an effective moisturizer is a struggle. I can’t do the gel creams, they don’t moisturize enough, and thicker ones tend to be too shiny in the am (don’t really care about pm). This doesn’t have either issue, and just feels so nice on my skin. It is thick and creamy, but actually sinks in to my skin and makes it …Read more

This mascara is not working for me at all. It provides ok length and separation, but zero volume. In fairness to it, I much prefer a more dramatic lash, and I probably should not have relied on Glossier to provide it since they are all about a more natural, clean look. Anyway, the bigger problem I have is that it can make my lashes stick out in weird directions, and it actually does flake off on …Read more

I have been using this for two months now, and I really like the results I have been seeing. I usually alternate OTC retinol and AHA (the Ordinary’s one percent in squalene and Paula’s Choice 8 percent) but picked it up after reading it was a dupe for P50. I have been using it every other night with retinol on the other nights. The first few weeks I wasn’t too impressed and read a lot of bad …Read more

This reminds me of a more mature version of Victoria’s Secret Heavenly, a warm powdery musk with an apple-citrus kick. It is very feminine. I like it well enough and it is inoffensive on me with relatively decent staying power, but it is nothing really stand out.

I really loved this at first, it is so easy to use, like Gimme Brow or Boy Brow but so cheap. Unfortunately, i believe that the high alcohol content has caused my brows to become more sparse. I have a bald spot in my brow that was not there before I started using this product. It is not worth risking for me.

I bought this so many times. It is a beautiful color, looks black with a warm burgundy undertone. It lasts so long on me and applies well. Probably my most used polish.

The best black. I love essie’s formula, it lasts forever on me. It is thin, so it is easy to control and doesn’t get gloopy. Builds to an opaque, shiny black.

These are the 2018 spiritual successors to Revlon’s lip butters, but with prettier packaging. Worth picking up if like me you are over the full coverage matte liquid lips and want some pigmented moisturizing lipsticks.
