Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2017

I received a deluxe sample of this in my Sephora bonus Pep Start Full of Pep Set. My first problem with this is the texture. It reminds me of the icing that comes in a can of cinnamon rolls. Application is very sticky and unpleasant. It feels like applying straight silicone to your face. It does not "blur imperfections" as it promises. Yes, it does moisturize. Yes, it has been kind to …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bite Beauty - Agave Lip Mask Champagne

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2017

I suffer with chronic, painful chapped lips all winter. I have tried holistic remedies, drugstore chapsticks, Carmex, Vaseline, homemade sugar scrubs. All to no avail. I received a sample of these in my January Sephora sample pack. I fell in love immediately. After sleeping with this the first night, I woke up to almost completely healed lips. I ordered the full size that following day …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Shadow Box (fall 2014)

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/04/2015

I purchased this palette in an Ulta store for $34 about two weeks ago and have tried using it exclusively since then to present an accurate review. Let's get packaging out of the way. As with every other Urban Decay palette they have spared no expense. This palette is quite small. It's smaller than a Samsung Note, I'm certain. I was expecting it to be a tad larger, but it's …Read more

Palettes - Coastal Scents - Revealed 3

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2015

After owning, and loving, the Revealed and Revealed 2 palettes from Coastal Scents you can bet your life when Revealed 3 was quietly released on their website Friday, March 6th I ordered it. Unlike the releases of the previous two, CS did not offer any sort of a release sales blitz. It was the usual price of $19.95. You get 20 shades in a range of cool and warm tones and a variety of finishes …Read more

Palettes - LORAC - Pro Palette 2

Mar/06/2015

I really did not want to like this palette. In fact, I had hoped it would be terrible so I could talk myself out of buying it. When I swatched it at Kohl's I wanted to cry, because this palette was even better in person than I thought it would be. I wasn't sure at first, because so many beauty gurus on YouTube had lamented that they didn't love it as much as the original Pro …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Sally Hansen - Creme Hair Remover for Face

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/11/2015

I used this once with no problem, although I noticed it didn't really get the hair below the hairline. I have mostly peach fuzz above my lip line, but there are some coarser, dark brown hairs sprinkled in. I usually pluck those, but I really wanted to eliminate the peach fuzz as well. I noticed I had stubble and dark black "specks" where the hair just burned off at the surface of …Read more

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - High Beam Liquid Highlighter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/29/2015

This is my Holy Grail highlighting product. I like to apply three small dots along the top of each cheekbone, just above my blush, a tiny line above my browline, and a little on the bridge of my nose and then blend it out. It isn't an obnoxious, sparkly highlighter. It's very subtle, yet noticable. It creates a natural dewey finish that lasts all day long. I did ding a lippie, because …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Smoked Eyeshadow Palette [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/29/2015

I believe this palette is currently being phased out. It can only be found on the UD website now. I snagged it when Sephora marked it down to $20. After playing around with this I am glad I had passed up the opportunities I'd had to purchase this when it was full price ($49), but it's still a really nice palette. This palette contains ten shades. There are four matte shades and the rest …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Posietint

Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2015

I got a sample of this in my Feelin' Dandy BeneKit. Up front, I adore literally every other product in the kit, but PosieTint is a let-down. It's said it can be used on the cheeks and lips. My problem with it on the cheeks is that even if you work really fast to blend it in, there is still a little obvious spot where the product first went down. So if you use it directly from the brush …Read more
