I added this to my skincare routine and have repurchased multiple times. I have dry skin with a *very* sensitive under eye area and mild rosacea on my cheeks, nose, and chin.

It is thin, watery, and odorless. I apply one of two ways. Often I put one drop on my finger tip and apply to one under eye and cheek, repeat with the other side, another drop on each jaw line and under, and a …

This is a slightly off-white lotion with a silicone base. It has no particular odor. It's a mineral sunscreen, 2% …

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2018

I waited a little and then applied a second coat, and it was fantastic! It thickened and lengthened my lashes and lasted all day without flaking. It certainly is not better than sex, but it definitely was one of the better …Read more

Lips - Lime Crime - Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick

Feb/20/2016

I have several Velvetines, among them Pansy - a bright true violet, which is hard to find, and i love true violets - and Cashmere - a slightly pinkish greige. Both are unusual colors.

I have no trouble applying them or getting smooth, even coverage. They dry down fairly quickly, and, while slightly drying as most mattes are, I do not find them uncomfortable. I have not had trouble with …

The colors in this look so nice, and the price was right, so i picked it up, along with a couple other WnW palettes.

Makes my eyes feel like they're on fire!!! I used to have this sort of problem in the 1970s, but haven't for at least 20 years, so it was quite a shock.

And all the other WnW e/s palettes i got do the same. I won't be buying WnW palettes again …
