Blush - Burt's Bees - All Aglow Lip & Cheek Stick

I got this in Peach Pond. It’s very very sheer with very little color payoff to the point of being almost invisible unless applied heavily. As another reviewer mentioned, it also crosses over the line from dewy to oily (at least on my face) thanks to the coconut oil core. I had my sister try it on her medium complexion to see if it worked as a highlighter on her (I’m very pale) and she also said …Read more

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Excellence Creme

This review is for Medium Ash Blonde (7.5) - it was truly not a great result. I used it on my dark ash blonde/30% gray roots and medium golden blonde lengths, following the instructions exactly...and now I have orange-gold roots and light ash brown lengths. I'm not sure how this managed to turn my roots warm when I was only lightening one level? I gave it a couple of lippies as my hair …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Shea Moisture - Peace rose oil complex body creme

It is so hard to find bath and body products that smell like roses (rather than an artificial "rose" smell)...a bit like an actual raspberry versus a blue raspberry slushy. You know what I mean? This is fantastic and smells just like Jo Malone's Red Roses. Jo Malone body cream, while luxurious and wonderful, is extremely expensive - but this is both cheap and has a lovely, complex …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid Serum

Sep/04/2018

I had originally left a review saying that this hadn't done that much for my skin, but as I used it over time I realized it was actually giving me chemical burns on the palms of my hands, my neck, and chest. I was using it as directed, generally once a week or less, and it took me a long time to figure out why I had small blisters on my palms and what looked and felt like a sunburn on my …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Moisture SPF 35

4.0

Jul/05/2018

This is the only sunscreen I've tried which doesn't dry my skin out, make me look like a greaseball, or cause me to break out in hives. The only thing I don't like about it is that it isn't cruelty free, and I'd prefer if it were a slightly higher spf (35 is good for everyday use in the city, but if I'm out in the sun I like a bit more protection). I'm very …Read more

Mascara - Unlisted Brand - It's Skin - Babyface Petit Mascara

Jul/05/2018

After a long, exhausting day working in New York City, I wandered into a CVS to buy water and ended up binge-buying every K-beauty product that looked cute or fun. Without reading the label. As you can imagine, some things have turned out to be wonderful and surprising, while other products continue to be a mystery (I still put them on my face, though). This mascara, in 02 Volume, is the big …Read more

I've been using this for about a year and only realized how much I liked it after stopping for a few weeks. It really does make my skin smoother, clearer, and more even. When I ran out I started breaking out, and that's when I realized that it actually made a huge difference. Plus, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, it's cruelty free, and a travel size lasts me around six …Read more

Mascara - NYX Professional Makeup - Le Frou Frou

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2018

This is the second NYX mascara I've tried (the other being Le Chick Flick, which was also disappointing). It promises volume and length but doesn't give either.

It did darken my lashes, so there's that; it made some lovely panda eyes as it wore off throughout the day. Totally not impressed, despite the cute name and the fact that other NYX products can be great.

I know we're not supposed to review discontinued products, but I'm hoping someone will know where I can get a dupe of this. I have had a bottle of this stain in Sweet Peach for - and I know this is so, so wrong for so many reasons - 17 years. And it is finally almost gone. I'm 35 now, and I got this from a Walmart when I was 18...and I have not been able to find a peach stain as …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

Dec/08/2017

This product is kind of pricey for a concealer, sure - but a tube also lasts me about a year, so it ends up being a really good value. I use Chantilly, which is a great match for my pale NW15 skin. It doesn't cover my under-eye circles but they are the dreaded genetic shiner variety and quite honestly nothing will cover those. I use it for an all around concealer/brightener, and it has a …Read more
