Highlighters - Glossier - Haloscope Highlighter (ALL COLORS)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Too subtle for me... and for the record I'm someone who has totally drunk the Kool-Aid when it comes to natural and less-is-more makeup. I'm a tightlining, brown-mascara-buying, MAC-Face-and-Body-wearing hoe who wants to make it look like the only makeup on my face is my red lipstick. And also apparently a smidge of highlighter, because it bothers me that I REALLY cannot see this stuff …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Timeless Skin Care - Squalane 100% Pure

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

This stuff is great. You know how some people's skin has that glow to it, where they're not oily exactly but they sure are buttery smooth, and they look like they just woke up and applied a fresh coat of moisturizer even though it's 3 in the afternoon? This finally gave me that glow. I just mix a drop in with my moisturizer at night and BAM, beautiful skin. It's not irritating …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Audacious Lipstick (All Shades)

5.0

2 months ago

I don't know how they did it, but somehow these last like mattes while having an insanely creamy texture. They're not cheap but in this case I think the exhorbitant price is worth it. Everything from the formula to the magnetic-click packaging is so well thought out and feels so luxe (or at least as luxe as plastic can feel). The shade I bought, Mona, lasts six hours and is opaque in …Read more

Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This is definitely Glossier's best product and the only one of those I've tried that I would recommend using. It's very easy to apply and gives you extremely natural looking, full, soft brows that last all day. As a brow gel, it doesn't have much hold, which doesn't bother me but might bother you. My main gripe is that the tube is tiny. It feels like I'm getting a …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Lipstick - Dark Side

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Dark Side is a vampy berry color in a shiny, moisturizing finish. I love the color but for some reason the texture really catches onto and accentuates dry spots on my lips in a way that only the driest of mattes have ever done. I definitely didn't expect that from such a hydrating lipstick! I think the Amplified texture just doesn't agree with me, which is a shame. The color is …Read more

Moisturizers - Glossier - Priming Moisturizer

2.0

I got a sample of this with my Glossier order. It's a very thin moisturizer that smells kind of like my great-grandma's handbag. Also like my great-grandma's handbag, it's not particularly good under makeup. What else is there to say? Literally any other thin lotion on the market will perform exactly the same. There's no need to spend $22 plus shipping on this.

Lips - Glossier - Generation G

2.0

3 months ago

I love sheers, I love mattes and I love reds, so of course I had to try this in Zip -- and I was disappointed. I like the look, but the effect is the same that you could get from lightly dabbing on any matte lipstick, and there is a distinct odor of Play Doh which is frankly embarrassing at this price point. (And yes, I have the new version with the silver inner tube that was supposed to have …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Burt's Bees - Hand Salve

3.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This is probably the first Burt's Bees product I've truly liked. I think it makes a nice cuticle cream, certainly much nicer than their actual cuticle cream. It's the right texture and it's very rich and moisturizing, has a good slip, and sinks in without too much trouble.

Unfortunately, as usual, Burt was incapable of letting a good thing be and he just had to ruin …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This lip balm doesn't do shit besides make my lips feel waxy. It is ridiculously unmoisturizing compared to every other lip balm I've ever tried. It doesn't even provide a sheer tint of color despite looking so pretty in its tube. I like beeswax in lip balms, but I ended up using this one as a hand cream just to get rid of it because it was so pointless.
