This is my all time favorite liquid eyeliner and I don't go anywhere without it. I keep the Moss and Brown eyeliner in my make up bag at all times, and throughout the year I have the Slate Grey liner on hand as well. Honestly, it's been years since I started using these and now I can't remember a time when one of those three weren't in my bag. I used to be faithful to smudge …Read more

Not to brag, ok I'm bragging, but I'm known for my soft skin. Really. Everyone comments on how soft my skin is and I do not take that compliment lightly because I work very hard to keep it that way. From my face to my legs, to my hands, I have a moisturizer for every inch of my body, and I'm always on the look out for something that will get at those tougher spots, especially as …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish by Kate Moss - 08

I was hoping this would become my perfect nude color. It certainly looks like it should be. I don't think I've come across a color that looked so perfect for me straight out of the tube. It looks really soft pink almost brown with an even blend. I have deceptive lips. They look more beige/tan colored but in fact have a lot of pink undertones. So finding a neutral lip color is really …Read more

I've been using this since I was fifteen. My skin loves it. It cleans the majority of dirt and make up off on a daily basis. I never really need a toner after. I used to use way too much at a time and it took me a while to realize less was definitely more. Doing that also helps keep that top clean which can get gunky and weird. Still, it's a great daily wash, leaves my skin looking and …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Kate Somerville - Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

5.0

Dec/19/2015

The only thing that I hate about this product is the price. It hurts my soul to ever pay over $80 for something I literally wash down the drain. $80!?! That is one ATM button away from hundred bucks and that hurts my soul. However, there is no denying in this case you get what you pay for. I've been skeptical about peels and exfoliators for a while, not because I don't believe they work …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Superstay Better Skin Skin-Transforming Foundation SPF 15 (US version)

Dec/19/2015

I've been testing this out for a week now, and I'm quickly becoming a fan. The first two days I was using a sample and then I went out and bought the whole bottle. Transitioning through my thirties has made skin care tricky for me. Generally I have pretty good skin. But I'm prone to annoying minor break outs and my constant work schedule makes my make up routine not only inevitable …Read more

Eye Primer - Smashbox - Photo Finish Lid Primer

Sep/23/2015

I love this primer. It keeps my eyeshadow and liner in place for the whole day and sometimes, when I fall asleep on the couch, throughout the night. I too was surprised by so many bad reviews on here and I suspect that many of them may be due to a lack of practice with this primer. It is thicker than most and does require a minute or two to sort of soak into your lid. Otherwise, your creamier …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Gloss (All Shades)

Aug/21/2015

I spent a good hour at Sephora trying to find my new favorite lip gloss (there really should be a law against companies discontinuing popular lip gloss lines- that's highly traumatizing to women). I tried almost every gloss in Sephora. I wanted something neutral with a little shine but not glittery, and a smooth application that blends easily. I can't stand sticky/tacky glosses (there …Read more

I've reviewed Paw Paw in other listings here so I've copied and pasted my review here.

It really is a cure all. I first learned about Paw Paw while working in the camping industry. My friends from Australia would always have it and whenever anyone had a cut or rash they would lend us some Paw Paw for it. It would clear it up in a few days for the more severe reactions. For …

It really is a cure all. I first learned about Paw Paw while working in the camping industry. My friends from Australia would always have it and whenever anyone had a cut or rash they would lend us some Paw Paw for it. It would clear it up in a few days for the more severe reactions. For bug bites and minor scratches it would work immediately. Itching would stop right away and blisters and bites …Read more
