Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 days ago

Still in testing mode, but finally decided to try this, since NYX changed the ingredients and took the palmitic acid out of it. Now the ingredients are noncomedogenic.

I applied this on my clean skin and let it set, and noticed the blurring immediately. I have large pores from BP gel. It is white and can leave a cast, but if you are someone with redness and melasma —-which makes my face …

Treatments (Face) - DIFFERIN - Acne Treatment Gel

1.0
Created with Sketch.

12 days ago

I’m 37 and have been using acne.org’s BP gel for 15 years, with clear skin resulting. Since I’m getting up there in age, I thought Differin might be something to switch to, being it can help with wrinkles/aging skin.

I literally picked up a .5 ounce tube of this for $13, and started using it my first night only at night like instructed (and stopped my BP). I tried this for three nights …

Eye Shadow - Makeup Revolution - I heart revolution - Red Velvet Chocolate Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

22 days ago

I purchased a bunch of these and so far, I loved them. This one has become a bit of a hit/miss for me. I just don't think it's what I had in my head as "red" velvet - some of the shades are straight up ORANGE. I would have liked many more reds, and the few that look red, turn pink once you blend them out. The I Heart Revolution Tasty Chili palette has more actual …Read more

Ugh, Lisa Eldridge fan, so of course I had to try this foundation.

Sadly, I think I'm one of the rare people that has tried this product (only twice) and each time, it looks like crap on my skin. I was worried about the talc, which sometimes breaks me out, but this gives me flaky dry spots. It's not the alcohol, as my much cheaper alternative has alcohol and doesn't look …

Hair Color - Overtone - Extreme Silver

4.0
Created with Sketch.

26 days ago

I purchased both the Extreme silver coloring conditioner (tub) and the daily conditioner (small bottle). Both are 8oz, so the tub is $29 and the daily is $18. That tells you a bit about the potency of each. I have light/med brown hair with a demarcation line coming in with very ash brown salt/pepper grays. I like true ash brown hair, and my hair fades a lot from washing and sun, so I color my …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Naked Honey Palette

2.0

27 days ago

Was able to swatch this in-store. I do not own any Naked palettes, I own a ton of cheaper dupe palettes that work well for me. Was curious to try this, however, I left pretty disappointed. Some folks were complaining it wasnt yellow enough and now I can see why. I wear UD Stay Naked in CG30. I have strong yellow cool golden undertones. If you are a true yellow undertone, you’ll find this palette …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Liquid Foundation

I had to delete my first review of this foundation done 2/2019. I hated it when I tried it and the alcohol caused my skin to flake. NC15/20- Shade 420 true beige was too light and neutral, shade 425 linen is the right undertone but a hair too dark. I ended up returning/donating.

Jump to 9/2019 - i decided to retry this, shade linen because the undertone was really good for my …

Eye Shadow - Makeup Revolution - I Heart Revolution - S'mores Chocolate Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

If you look at swatches online - the shades in this S'mores palette are almost spot on to the shades in the new Naked Honey palette by UD. I bought this a month or two ago - and have only got around to testing it now. It's my dream "browns" "neutrals" palette. I love browns and golds. I'm surprised that no one has mentioned how this palette dupes a ton of the …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Oil & Shine Control Primer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I grabbed a sample of this new Smashbox primer from Sephora a day after it came out. I have combo skin but get oily on my t-zone and have large pores from benzoyl peroxide. I need blurring and some mattifying/oil control, and saw this with positive reviews on the web. I do have reactive skin, mostly to scented products and comedogenic ingredients.

I decided to test this first on clean …

Toners - Unlisted Brand - Earth to Skin - Tea Time Anti Aging Green Tea Face Toner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Earth to Skin is a new “clean/natural” facial line by Walmart. I happened to stumble on the line while browsing the ‘exclusive to walmart’ section on the Walmart website. Not sure how I got to that area of the site, but several products in this line caught my eye because they were in stock at my local store. I have reactive skin to comedogenic ingredients as well as scents, so I have to …Read more
