I removed the sponge applicator with a pair of tweezers. Underneath, what's left, is a little tube that the product gets dispensed through. That's how I use it, without the sponge. One or two clicks and enough product comes out of the tube to put onto the back of my hand. Then I warm it up with my ring finger to emulsify it a bit. It becomes creamier when I do that first, then it is …Read more

Customer service is hit or miss. I would really love it if the cashiers would tell me I have points about to expire. But most of the time, when I am at the cash register, I feel like I am in a drugstore, except that my local Walgreens has friendlier and more helpful cashiers. I blame it on Ulta corporate culture. Any company with great customer service trains employees to be customer-oriented. Oh …Read more

I picked this up in soft brown at Target for $8.99. I wasn't sure how to use it and read some reviews after I purchased it and then I almost returned it. But I watched a YOUTuber apply it and she used very light, feathery strokes, so I tried doing it that way, and I have to say that works much better than when I first tried it and tried to draw a defined line. She also used a spoolie to …Read more

I do have strong yellow undertones (MUFE 140 for reference) and this in the lightest shade looks great on me. This is my go-to for weekends and casual days. It is natural-looking, light coverage yet it is enough to cover my purplish/brownish undereye circles. I apply it with the attached brush and let it "cook" before blending it out with my fingertip. I find it to be lightly hydrating …Read more

This worked well but the scent is too strong! It literally felt and smelled as though I had rubbed perfume on my face. The fragrance lingered for at least an hour, after which I couldn't take it anymore. It was so bothersome, I had to wash my face and re-apply my makeup. If you are at all sensitive to fragrance, get a sample of this before purchasing!

This is softer than the Hourglass Arch sculpting pencil but firmer than the Anastasia Perfect brow pencil. The shade is cooler than Anastasia's soft brown and warmer than her medium brown. The spoolie is super soft. I don't need a brow gel when I use this because the waxy texture is just enough to keep my sparse brows in place. I like to use this to fill in all over and then go back and …Read more

HG for me! Although, first I always use a makeup removing wipe, then follow with a cleansing water. I have been using this method for make up removal and sometimes morning cleansing nearly everyday for about five years. My first micellar water ever was Dior (loved and used the whole bottle but never repurchased due to the high price). My second one to try was Sephora brand (used and repurchased …Read more

I went to two different sephoras to get matched and the results were the same both times: 2Y07. I learned that the first number tells me I am close to neutral. (1 in the first number spot would be the most neutral of the yellow tones, while 5 would indicate the most yellow). The last number tells me my skin is medium-in the middle between fair and deep. (The last number ranges from 1 to 15, with …Read more
