Have trouble removing ELDW? Use a half pump of DHC Deep Cleansing Oil on dry skin. Want this fndt to look more natural while still being full coverage? Try Mac Strobe Cream, like a minute or so after you apply your moisturizer. Then, immediately apply your fndt over strobe. When using a high coverage fndt like this one, you just have to find out what products play well together, what days to use …Read more

Skincare - Body - Bio Oil - All Products

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2013

I have not noticed any miracles, but being Bio Oil contains some beneficial oils like Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary, and Chamomile, I will continue to use it. It does contain Mineral Oil, but that does not bother my skin, and is also an ingredient in my beloved Clinique DDML. Oh, it smells divine if I must say so myself, and seems to attract my husband from afar. Full ingredient …Read more

Scrubs - St. Ives - Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2013

I don't know if it's only me doing this, but being this scrub was too harsh for my face I have been using it for my feet instead. I was soaking them in hot water with Epsom Salt one day, when the idea hit me. I admit that I am a "waste not, want not" kind of girl, but really this scrub + a pumice stone = lovely refreshed soft feet. Glad I found a use for it!

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Fig Jam [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/25/2013

If Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey did not give you enough color payoff, than you will love Fig Jam. If you want even more color, top it with Pink Truffle. Beautiful! For skin tone reference, I am pale with warm undertones (I wear Estee Lauder liquid foundation Bone 17 1W1 -think MAC NC15, but more yellow than neutral). And, my natural lip tone is deathly pale... Fig Jam is just what I …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Frost - Nylon

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2013

Being Nylon is so buttery, soft, and smooth, it has become one of my favorites to use as my main base color. I layer colors like Patina, Sable, Da Bling, Swish, Henna ect over it. The possibilities are endless. You do need to be careful as this baby is pigmented! On my pale warm skin (NC 15ish, but more yellow) this eye shadow shows up as a shiny yellow/white/gold. I really love it, and have even …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - bareMinerals - Bare Vitamins Skin Rever Upper

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2013

I am here to show some love for BE barevitamins Skin Rev-er Upper. I live in FL and have to deal with heat and humidity most of the time, and the skin rev-er upper is perfect for my needs. I have worn it over my moisturizer, and under it. In either case, I then apply BE Prime Time foundation primer (original) over that combo before applying my foundation. Have any of you ever used a high coverage …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Sable

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2013

One of my most used colors!! Sable looks so pretty on my olive green eyes (pale skin NC15ish for reference). The color is hard to describe really. To me it's a frosty brown with a hint of silver, red, and purple. Normally, I would run from something with red or purple undertones, but this one works well for me. I will say that I only wear it on my lid and crease, as it is not a good color to …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #150 Large Powder Brush

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2013

This is the only MAC brush that I find scratchy. And I have a ton of them! I purchased it at Macy's for $42.00, not incl shipping. I would say that I am spoiled being I also own the 187 (everyone knows how ridiculously awesome and soft that one is), but really I have EcoTools brushes that are a million times softer than this 150. It's so bad, I don't think I can swap it!

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint - All

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/05/2013

Not sure if I am the only one doing this, but I apply a tiny bit of UDPP before applying Mac Paint (and I use Bare Canvas, in the squeeze tube). Seems to work just fine for me. Be sure to roll the end of the tube out to prevent the paint from gushing -as I seen someone else here mention. I also keep small sample jars around if this ever would happen, as not to waste product.

Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Strobe Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2013

Coming from a 39 y/o who does not like greasy shiny looks, I love this product! The only way I have tried/worn it is under my foundation. The first time I used it, I was unimpressed and disappointed being I used too much product. But, once I figured out what amount was good for me, what a difference in how my foundation applies & looks all day! Before this product, I was using Bare Escentuals …Read more
