BB Cream - Lioele - Triple Solution BB Cream SPF30 PA++

Dec/28/2014

This WAS my first favorite BB cream. It is a South Korea brand which is where BB cream got big in the last few years and then the US jumped on it. Usually wrongly. BB creams are ideally to even out skin, cover imperfections, and feel flawless and weightless. Many offer spf and dreaded whitening. This is approx $12-$15 to import and it is full coverage plus spf. Squeeze tube is hygenic and pretty …Read more

Foundations - PUR Cosmetics - Liquid Veil

Dec/28/2014

I saw this in the store at Kohl's, but it's $39. That's way more than i'm willing to pay especially when i am quite happy with my Lumene CC. However, i managed to find this online for under $20 and I LOVE it. It's a spray foundation and i tend to prefer BB or CC creams, but this exceeded all my expectations. It is not tested on animals which is also a requirement for me …Read more

No, no, no, no.
I have under eye circles and I tried this out a few years ago when Benefit was cruelty free.
it comes in a little tiny compact and you rub it on w finger,sponge, brush, whatever. It goes fast and there isnt much there before you hit bottom
This may be one of the worst concealers ever.
The texture is rough and greasy and grainy at the same time. It smears on and …

Concealers - Physicians Formula - Super CC + Correct + Concealer + Cover Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/27/2014

I picked this up for around $6. It's a concealer not a cc or bb cream. But the lighter color matches my fair skin well and it's a creamy sheer liquid in a click pen with a brush. It does NOT completely cover my dark circles but it does a decent job on lightening them and covering the occasional breakout. I would buy again at a discount but not full price. The BB concealer seems very …Read more

BB Cream - Lumene - Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream SPF 20

Dec/27/2014

This is one of the highest rated BB creams on the site. Which actually led me to trying it and the CC cream. The CC cream i bought 4 of when they were half off at Walgreens. This...
I like the squeeze tube, and i even like the colors and design (white and orange, very basic and clean). I would only change the tube to a squeeze tip like the CC cream as it's more hygenic and mess free. I …

Lips - Stila - Clear Color in Rose

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/18/2014

The only reason I would not buy this again besides the price, besides it being discontinued, is because Stila recently changed their animal testing policy to test by law.
It's not so much a lip tint, as it isn't sheer at all. It looks like a gaudy color, but on lips it somehow changes and blends into a very pretty color. It's moisturizing, has a great scent, and is very …

BB Cream - Lumene - Time Freeze Anti-Age Color Correcting CC Cream [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/14/2014

I really like this, and this is the first US BB or CC I can say that about.
I ended up buying this after I saw that the BB was #1 rated on this site. I checked to make sure they were cruelty free and not sold in China, and then headed to CVS with my coupon.
I tried out the BB in medium and it was orange, but this CC cream in medium was a perfect match for my fair skin. The light seemed …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Plum Lip Treatment SPF 15

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2014

I hated the product, loved the color.
Fresh is sold in China which cinches my decision of quality over color.
This is a tinted balm that claims to be moisturizing and long-lasting, and a long list of other things it doesn't do, but it made my lips feel waxy, like a wax shield cover, and it lasted under an hour.
I used it, again, because I loved the plum purple-brown color …

Eyeliner - Tarte Cosmetics - Skinny SmolderEyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner - Onyx

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2014

I wanted to love this, but it's a mess.
The color is a dark, intense, pigmented black that may be a little too thick and dramatic for some on the bottom line.
The tip is so soft that it needs to be sharpened after two or three uses, and it still doesn't sharpen to enough of a point to draw a fine line or a straight line. Even once it sets, it smudges. I wouldn't expect a …

BB Cream - The Body Shop - Vitamin E Cool BB cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2014

I HATE this BB cream. This was my first US BB cream, and I can't really agree that it's a BB cream. It's more of a foundation paste.
Here are the claims:
Vitamin E Cool BB Cream is a new skincare hero (definitely not).
The Body Shop's new take on BB cream illuminates (false; makes skin dull), evens skin tone and protects with moisture (greasy) for 12 hours …
