Foundations - Too Faced - Born This Way Foundation

Sep/21/2015

Using this on clients of mine is always touch and go; this is a strongly yellow based foundation line that, like the claims state, a medium to full coverage. what you won't get however, is a totally natural finish like the claims say. What you will get is a very "your makeup looks nice" effect rather than a "your skin looks great" result. My main complaint is that the …Read more

Yes it's expensive, yes it has high claims and yes you'll think twice about buying it because of the price, but it really does a great job of making hair that's been fried feel so much better.


After a double process of bleaching and two colorings in one day my hair was HIT. I got the full size of the shampoo and conditioner to revive my hair. The shampoo is gentle …

Concealers - Tarte Cosmetics - Maracuja Creaseless Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Apr/13/2015

These really do wear well, even with oily skin you'll get at least 6+ hours of wear out of it without blotting.

My only compliant is that the shades tend to be too light. Even the darkest one looks very ashy on deep skin tones. This does an excellent job at covering anything, even under eye circles, in a hurry while remaining and looking "like skin", meaning that it …

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer Water

2.0

Mar/26/2015

What's the point of this product? It's geared as a primer? It's water with a little caffeine and diamond powder (which has no benefit for skin).

Any antioxidant properties will degrade thanks to the translucent bottle and I'd rather use their much better and well made silicon based primers and maybe MAC Fix+ spray if I'm going to be using a liquid form primer …

Concealers - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2015

I must be in the minority here because I really like this product. It stays within line of the Naked foundation in being very light but giving heavy duty coverage that works well under the eyes or anywhere on the face.

I feel like it's best suited for normal to oily/combo skin as it does tend to finish a little drier than some other concealers. When layering on clients I've …

Lipstick - LORAC - Alter Ego Lipstick

5.0

Mar/24/2015

FAIR WARNING: These are CRAZY pigmented and tend to lean more matte.

I've used these on clients and have only had good things to say about them. They apply super smooth, rich and are a full blown opaque lipstick. I feel no need to set with a powder before or after as I've seen the staying power be insane.

Foundations - bareMinerals - Bare Minerals Ready Foundation

3.0

Mar/24/2015

This wouldn't be my first choice for a pressed powder foundation.

It has a bad tendency to still be very messy and powdery during application with a brush or a sponge. I've used this on clients with various skin types and it tends to be an OK option for those with dry skin although I tend to like powders better for those with oily skin as it tends to absorb oil and shin and …

Liquid - bareMinerals - bareSkin® Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20

4.0

Mar/24/2015

For a liquid foundation, this tends to do fairly well at it's claims AND working well with dry, dull skin (as some liquid foundations do not do well with).

Starting off fairly oily and slightly slippery, blending is key to this product. The brush that it's geared to being sold with (the flat top with the well in the middle) does a decent job but really, any decent and well …

Liquid - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2015

What I like most about this is that it gives an insane amount of coverage without being heavy or cakey on skin. It has a very watery fluid texture that will please oily skin (dry skin, moisture the heck out of yourself before using this). The shade range is impressive - ranging from very fair with pink undertones to dark with red/purple undertones. Urban Decay did a good job making sure that …Read more

Moisturizers - La Mer - Creme de la Mer The Moisturizing Creme

1.0

Mar/23/2015

I don't understand the hype around this product. It's all MARKETING and nothing else.

Keep in mind that it's in a jar (read: anything good inside will break down when exposed to air and light and you're left with a jar of nothing). Not to mention that it's unsanitary to constantly be dipping into it again and again. The inclusion of essential oils also damages …
