I am glad MelThompson from YouTube suggested this brush.All my favorite brushes are high end except for this target one. It’s the one I use as the very last step in my powder applications. I use it to blend everything all over my face. It melds all the powder, blush, highlight into a soft focus look.
It’s also a good brush to use the Hourglass ambient lighting powder because of how soft …

I find myself coming back to this again and again as a topcoat for any other mascara. Before I leave for work I put on a topcoat of this to supplement any mascara that was down as a basecoat such as IT superhero BENEFIT bad gal bang or even definicils. It really adds definition and especially volume. Makes a huge difference!

I’m trying to figure out which company makes this for Trader Joe’s. We all know that Trader Joe’s has big brands making them products with the Trader Joe label. I like this better than any of the other rosewater glycerin type facial sprays I have bought recently. I usually spray this (especially on my back) after a shower. The mist is fine, much finer than Mac fix + The ingredients are …Read more

I just used up the gold label BB cream and was mixing it with my it cc cream in fair. I am NW 20 .
I got a sample of this at Sephora and tried it mixed with the it cosmetics one which was fine. But on the weekends I will experiment and so this morning I tried this actually all by itself. I did set it with bye-bye pores powder (which is also new to me) after nine hours it still looks …

Not a dupe of Farmacy Green Clean, unfortunately. The consistency is more greasy & although it doesn’t smell bad, it has that “almost crayon smell”. It does take off makeup well but not great in the eye area. The residue is uncomfortable, making my eyes feel like I need to use eye wash.
I’m kind of happy that there’s not a lot of product in the jar because I’m trying to use it up just …

REPHER P08 is the brush I'd like to review here. Since they're a new company, it's not listed here yet.
This one I paid $30 for ($45 value) I was happy to buy it since I've already reviewed another of their brushes & was quite impressed.
This one is the perfect size to fit into the 6 pan Hourglass palette!! It is SO soft, yet splays out perfectly. I've …

This is for the new brush line REPHR, made in Japan of Saikoho goat hair. I have the 01 brush which can be used as a flat shader OR I find it perfect for under eye shadow blending. I own a few pencil & smudger brushes from Wayne Goss & Sonia G. & this is definitely on par with those brands. The bristles are SOFT yet firm, holding their shape while you do your patting or blending. I …Read more

Ouch!! I first tried this for eye makeup removal and it burned my eyes so badly I flushed them quickly with water.
The next night I figured I would just use up the rest of the bottle as a makeup remover for my face. I was quite surprised that it burned just as badly on my skin.
I actually called the company (they have a toll free number on the back of the bottle ). I told them …

I first bought Cherry loved it and now bought Mango. These may replace my Yves Saint Laurent stick in oil because I love the look of non-opaque, staining color on my lips without the heavy feel of a true “lipstick“.
These feel so comfortable throughout wear time!!. No drying yet not at all sticky. Kind of feel like as if you were wearing a thick layer of old-fashioned Chapstick, but in …

I wanted to share a tip I just discovered. This works incredibly well with a tiny damp beauty blender! I had stopped using it because it was making my eyelids look more crepey then I cared for. Instead of throwing it out I decided to give it one last try by shearing it out this way. What great results I got! I’m very happy about this because I have blue veins that show through my eyelids and …Read more
