Foundations - Maybelline New York - Dream Urban Cover Foundation

2.0

2 days ago

Was able to swatch this in-store-- beware of the shades. They jump sooo much, I couldnt find one that was light and yellow for NC20 face (my neck is NC15 so I have to go a tad lighter than my face). The classic ivory 120 was actually too dark, which surprised me ( and I read online some folks thought this as well). One shade lighter, 115 ivory -- was too pink for any yellow tones, natural ivory …Read more

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

4.0

I have wanted to try this foundation for several years after seeing it reviewed on YT and also Lisa Eldridge. However, the ingredients containing alcohol always stopped me. Normally, I get redness/reactions from alcohol in foundations (tried several - including the newest L'oreal Fresh wear) and they bother my skin. Also, this isn't sold locally in the USA, so swatches and purchasing is …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Wild Nude

3.0

29 days ago

I swore I would never buy another Essie polish after blowing $$$ on them, only to be disappointed with the runny/goopy formula every time. I honestly dont know how this brand is sooooo popular; Sally Hansen is better, hands down.

I was swayed to grab this nude shade, since I like natural colors, and I did swatch in store, liking the color. I wish Id have seen the reviews first! I lean …

Skincare - Face - Stridex - Triple Action Pads, Alcohol Free

4.0

These are great if you want a toner with SA and non-comedogic ingredients to prep your skin post wash. However, if you have sensitive skin, or use another acne topical (I use a BP gel)-- the 2% SA may be a little too harsh. I switched to the green box with 0.5% and it works better for my skin. But if this is your main acne prep, it should be great for you! Highly recommend these wipes! …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Stridex - Daily Care Pads - Sensitive with Aloe

5.0

There are two listings for this, so will post on both, but I used to use the Stridex in the red container/box with 2% SA but since I also use a topical BP acne gel, the combo was just too much for my skin.

Decided to try these instead with only 0.5% SA and aloe and witch hazel, so much better. I mostly use this like a toner after washing AM and PM and let my skin dry, then follow with …

Palettes - MILANI - Most Loved Mattes Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I wouldnt repurchase this exact shadow palette again, because it will last forever and there will be no need, but because of how amazing the formula is for these shadows, I'm eyeing to purchase the Soft and Sulty palette in this line as well!

I love warm mattes (im older so my eyelids like mattes and i have strong yellow undertones) so this palette was on my radar. I think Milani …

Foundations - Soap & Glory - Kick Ass All Day Wear Foundation

2.0

1 month ago

I saw reviews online that this was an almost identical product to CYO's lifeproof fdtn (the ingredients are identical) and the component is identical (plastic pump). I tested shade 02 at Ulta, way too dark. Shade 01 was too pink, so unfortunately, they need to expand their shade range. I'm NC 15/20 and shade 02 was dark on me (not even dried down). I own CYO in shade 03 and its a tad …Read more

Scrubs - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Gentle Peeling Exfoliant

4.0

3 months ago

I really like this! I don't like to use harsh scrubs and nothing super strongly scented - I have sensitive skin. This works nicely. I know there are comments on ELF's reviews claiming that the "sloughing off" of your dead skin is a gimmick - but even if it is - I know that after I use this, my skin is super soft, so it's obviously doing SOMETHING.

I follow …

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

1.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Tried both this regular IT CC and the matte version - samples from Sephora. First off - the shade range is horrible. I'm NC15-20 and fair was completely too white, I looked like a ghost, shade fair-light was too pink, and shade light was oompa loompa orange and like, 3 shades too dark for my face.

After disliking the matte version because it made my face so dry (even with a …
