BB Cream - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Perfector

May/12/2018

Foundation is not my friend. No matter what method I use to apply it, my combination-skinned face ends up looking cakey, the foundation breaks down, or the product accentuates my dry spots. I don’t have anything major to cover, but I do have mild rosacea. So my foundation search was centered around discovering a product that could even out my redness. I’ve legit tried EVERYTHING. Formerly, Make …Read more

Moisturizers - Vanicream - Moisturizing Skin Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2018

I just bought my second bottle of Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream. It's my new HG. I have combo skin (oily t-zone, dry cheeks) with mild rosacea and sensitivity to harsh ingredients. Many moisturizers are simply too thick and greasy for my skin type. They leave me clogged and shiny. Vanicream was recommended by my dermatologist and it's perfect. Mild, non-irritating, and light-weight …Read more

Highlighters - Urban Decay - Naked Illuminated

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2018

I absolutely love glowy, shimmery skin. I wanted to invest in a powder highlighter/illuminator and having previously loved Urban Decay products, I chose the Naked Illuminated powder. Firstly, the packaging is GORGEOUS. Absolutely perfect for a present. But really, that's where the fun ends. Naked Illuminated is basically straight up glitter. It gives no hint of color or tone. No shimmer or …Read more

Cleansers - Avene - Cleanance Cleansing Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2012

I originally bought the Avene Cleanance gel cleanser because my normally dry-combination skin had become increasingly oily in the T-zone and I was experiencing breakouts and clogged pores. My former cleanser (Cerave Foaming Face Wash) simply wasn't doing the trick.

I was initially concerned about trying this product because I have mild rosacea and my skin tends to get dry easily …

Shampoo - Redken - Color Extend Shampoo

Aug/31/2011

I have highlighted hair and my stylist recommended this Redken Shampoo to me. I have combo hair with greasy roots, but dry ends. I liked the Redken shampoo for awhile. It made my slightly damaged hair softer and more manageable. However, after 2 months of solid use, it made my hair oily like I hadn't washed it that day. I thought maybe that I hadn't washed out all the shampoo from my …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Length

Great drugstore mascara. I've been looking for a great cheaper dup for my favorite Lancome Defincils mascara for a long time and I've finally found it. In a mascara, I'm looking for super length, not volume. I've found that the volumizing mascaras get too clumpy on my lashes. Lash Blash Length is never clumpy, and it gives the illusion of length. When I use it, I apply several …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash Mascara

Aug/31/2011

HATE THIS. I will never understand the hype about this mascara and the reason it makes so many "Best of" lists. I've tried it numerous times, based on the hype, and I've never been satisfied. It's hard to get a good application, so I have to keep reapplying. Of course, when I reapply, instead of getting lovely fully lashes, it clumps like crazy. Awful, awful stuff. Will …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Benetint

I should learn my lesson with BeneFit products. I've never found one that works well. They've all been so disappointing.

With BeneTint, I was looking for a long lasting blush. Instead, BeneTint is extremely hard to apply, which the way it's packaged seriously doesn't help. Are you seriously supposed to apply it with the nailpolish brush it provides? I tried and that …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2011

Love this blush! My HG. I have fair, cool-toned skin, and NARS orgasm blush is the absolute perfect shade. I tend to be very pale and vampire-like, especially in mid-winter, but NARS Orgasm tends to give me the color I need to look human. It looks natural, without being overdone. Great everyday blush.

Aug/31/2011

When I was a breakout prone, combo skinned teenager, this was my go-to facial cleanser, especially when I became more oily in the summer. It did a great job at reducing my facial oiliness and overall breakouts. I still use this face wash when I travel to tropical climates where I get more oily and start to breakout again. It always does the trick. As a more combo-dry adult, I usually need a light …Read more
