Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Washable Mascara

Nov/05/2018

This product was very frustrating to use and a big disappointment. The wand is a razor-thin, curved comb and very stiff which made it difficult to use. I couldn’t master it and wound up poking myself in the eye several times. It does not hold very much mascara either so you have to make many passes to get any sort of volume. The formula dries very fast but applying a second or third coat is a …Read more

Brows - REVLON - Brow Fantasy in Brunette

Aug/10/2018

The concept of this product makes sense however the functionality and quality make it a waste of money. The gel has very little color and found the bristles to be rather stiff and difficult to work. The pencil is far too soft so it doesn't hold a point and it gums up your eyebrows giving them an unnatural look. Because of it's consistency, you are constantly having to sharpen it so it …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

Apr/11/2018

I had heard all the hype about this product and decided to pick it up for a formal event I was attending. I think I paid close to $25.00 including tax which isn't exorbitant but still more than I typically pay for mascara. The product is beautifully packaged with a frosty pink metallic tube and it has a thick, bow-shaped wand which seemed like it would really lift and add volume to my …Read more

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

Mar/02/2018

I was in search of a gentle, effective and economically priced facial cleanser and came across Cetaphil at Ulta. In the past, I have used Purity, Peter Thomas Roth, and a few others but thought all of them were too expensive for just cleansing. I use this with my Clarisonic and get great - if not better results than higher priced cleansers. Cetaphil is extremely gentle around the eye area and I …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Mario Badescu - Hyaluronic Eye Cream

I had heard a lot about this eye cream and had pretty high hopes. I have a bit of under eye crepiness and a few small wrinkles and hoped this product would deliver results. Unfortunately, it fell flat. It is light to medium in consistency, applies easily but didn't seem to want to absorb into my skin. I tried wearing it during the day but it caused the rest of my eyeliner and mascara to …Read more

Pressed Powders - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder

5.0

Mar/02/2018

I was hesitant to try this as I feared it would look ghostly on me but I have bought it three times now. You only need a light dusting to set makeup and eliminate the appearance of pores. It is colorless and lasts a long time where I rarely have to touch it up. If I do need a touch up, it is sheer enough where I don't have to reapply blush or bronzer. The compact however is a bit bulky …Read more

Liquid - Philosophy - Miracle Worker Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF30

Mar/02/2018

I decided to give this a shot and am very impressed with the results! The formula is lightweight, applies very easily with medium coverage and looks natural - not cakeyl. My skin immediately felt softer and moisturized and it showed! The pump dispenser is nice too and a little goes a long way which justifies the price. It doesn’t “sit” on my face or oxidize through the day either and holds …Read more

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - CC+ Cream Illumination SPF50+

Feb/12/2017

My first regret in buying this is that I chose the illuminating formula. I used some from the tester at Ulta and the coverage was excellent, it applied effortlessly and felt very light. However, that was on the back of my hand. The product feels great on my face and does hydrate as promised but is too luminous where I find that I have to cake on layers of powder not just after application but …Read more
