Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/22/2017

I have extremely dry skin with a lot of flakiness, and this foundation emphasizes the dryness more than anything I have tried before. I found a decent color match, and the coverage evens out my multi-colored skin, but the finish is quite matte and not at all what I look for in a foundation. I've tried it with and without primers, and I can't make it work for me. I also suspect it …Read more

Cleansers - Boots - No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes - All Skin Types

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/07/2017

I bought these at Target, and the package isn't the same as the one pictured -it's white and doesn't say "4 in 1," but does say "Quick Thinking." I'm wondering if the ones I bought are different from the ones most people reviewed because I think they are awful. They do not remove eye makeup or my Dr. Jart BB very well at all. They also are extremely …Read more

Shampoo - Kevin Murphy - Blonde.Angel.Wash

Aug/18/2016

This shampoo paired with the Blonde Angel treatment makes my blond sooo much better. I have baby fine dark blond hair with lots of light blond highlights that can easily get very brassy. Every time I use this shampoo and then let the treatment soak into my hair for several minutes, I actually love my color. It also smoothes out frizz and just makes for good hair in general. It is pricey, but …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

2.0

Aug/18/2016

I bought the version for waterproof mu based on the reviews here. I'm not impressed at all. I don't wear much makeup, but it takes at least 5 cotton pads to get my face mostly clean. I never have been able to remove all of my eye makeup with this. It's faster and more effective for me to use a regular cleanser.
This doesn't irritate or dry out my skin, but I suspect it …

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - corn starch

3.0

Mar/25/2014

I tried corn starch as a powder, and it really makes my dry skin look DRY and powdery (even in tiny amounts), so I won't be using it on my face again. However, it does wonders for my baby fine blonde hair -I either apply it with a fluffy face brush or sprinkle it on the roots, and my hair actually has volume. It works better than any dry shampoo I've purchased, too.

Powders - Smashbox - Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2014

I bought this in the try it kit, and while everything else in the kit makes me break out, the powder works incredibly well for me. It's the first powder I've found that doesn't emphasize dry patches and flakes and doesn't break me out. It blurs imperfections and makes my red skin look practically flawless.

Foundations - Marc Jacobs - Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/19/2013

I got a sample of this in Bisque Light, which is definitely too dark for me. The lighting in Sephora threw me off - I normally wear the lightest shade available.
Anyway, I'm really glad I asked for a sample because I am not impressed at all. The foundation accentuated my dry patches, even though I exfoliated like crazy to make sure I had a smooth surface. I actually feel like my …

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/16/2013

I got this as a Sephora birthday gift. I was expecting it to be a really good quality, dramatic mascara, but it is awful. I've never had spidery lashes like I do with They're Real, and attempting to brush them out doesn't help. And it flakes all over my face and doesn't stay put but is very hard to remove.
I've tried this with and without primer and hated it …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/17/2013

I got this as a Sephora free birthday gift last year. I cannot believe people will spend 20 bucks on this stuff! The tint is nice, and it smells good, but you could say that about most lip balms. It actually makes my lips peel and dries them out when I use it, and the waxiness irritates my throat somehow (Chapstick does the same thing to me). It is no better than your average balm that costs a …Read more
