Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian 12-Hour Clay Blush - Glisten

Sep/23/2018

I searched the Internet far and wide to find a cruelty-free dupe for NARS Orgasm. I finally read someone's blog post saying Glisten was a very close match; I'd been wanting to try this blush for years, so I went for it. It's great!! The packaging is adorable, and the blush itself gives a beautiful, warm, medium peach color, with a little bit of the gold shimmer, just like Orgasm …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Supergoop! - Forever Young Hand Cream SPF40

Apr/27/2018

A year or two ago, I started (in earnest) wearing sunscreen every day on all exposed parts of my body. I never knew what to do after washing my hands, though, and happened to her about Supergoop on a podcast I listen to. I bought the hand cream and am so happy with it. It has a nice, light smell, leaves my hands very soft, and the skinny packaging is cute/fits in my makeup pouch. Now I reapply …Read more

Mascara - Physicians Formula - Eye Booster Lash Contortionist Mascara

Apr/18/2018

I've been using this mascara for about a week, and curl my lashes first. It adds noticeable length and makes my lashes more noticeable in general. At first, I noticed that because the brush is twisty, pulling the wand out misses some spots in clearing the brush of excess product. So much comes off if you do a full scrape against the opening. I don't recommend doing this, though, as it …Read more

Mascara - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio 3-in-1 Mascara (Lengthen, Define & Volumize)

Mar/22/2018

This mascara didn't work for me. One pro is the price ($3 USD!), which made me feel less guilty about tossing it.

- It went on unevenly and clumpy unless I put it on very slowly and with a very light touch
- It stuck entire sections of lashes together
- It was very hard to get off - I lost some lashes in the process
- The shape of the brush was problematic - like …

Misc Beauty Tools - Tarte Cosmetics - Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2018

This curler works nicely; I notice a difference, and the curl (with mascara) lasts at least until I leave work in the evening. I also ordered this from Sephora, and it came with a free sample of a Tarte mascara.

The form factor is really nice - I like the grippy handles, and it's easy to use. It also comes with a little plastic "holder" that holds it almost-shut when …

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Powder Blush - Pinched

3.0

Feb/02/2018

I picked this up to try as a cruelty-free dupe for NARS Orgasm blush. It's pretty close! And I can't believe the price point - I got it on sale on the NYX site for $3.

Pros: Super affordable. Really nice color. Very pigmented - this is going to last for-ev-er.
Con: Hard to blend (paired with how pigmented it is - you have to work with it a little).

Lotions/ Creams - J. R. Watkins - Lemon Cream Hand Repair Moisturizer

Feb/02/2018

I spent weeks ducking into every drugstore I passed to find a cruelty-free hand cream, and am really happy I took a chance on this one! It smells like a a delicious lemon dessert, as others have said, and does the job/is very moisturizing. I haven't experienced the greasiness some others have mentioned, but mostly apply it to the backs of my hands. After a few hours the smell fades into a …Read more
