Mar/11/2017

I've been using 10-15% glycolic acid toners and serums nightly, for over a year now and was looking for something a bit stronger to help with a few stubborn hyperpigmented spots. Based on the ingredients and the pH, I thought this would be the perfect product. Color me disappointed. I opened the jar, which was shrink-wrapped in plastic and had a safety seal over opening, the pads were …Read more

Concealers - Glossier - Stretch Concealer

Oct/01/2016

This is truly for someone who doesn't need any real concealing, but maybe just wants to even their skin out a touch on an otherwise good skin day. The product has less coverage than most foundations and it's very emollient, so a light hand is necessary, otherwise it just looks greasy and slips right off. It has no staying power, even with powder (and it doesn't play nice with …Read more

Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

Oct/01/2016

I definitely bought into the hype on this one, and sadly, the product didn't live up to it. I sort of expected it to replace the need for pencil or powder (let's be honest, like with all their products, they made it seem like Boy Brow is all you need to groom your brows, providing color and hold), but unless you have relatively full and/or dense brows to begin with, you'll need …Read more

Lipstick - ColourPop - Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick (All Colors)

Aug/21/2016

I bought three colors - LAX, Avenue, and More Better. The colors are great, I have no complaints about that, other than that they dry down a little more dull than I'd like. They're just not very comfortable to wear, unfortunately. I don't expect long-wearing liquid lipsticks to be as comfortable as a regular cream lipstick or light lipgloss, but these were more uncomfortable than …Read more

Nov/01/2015

I ran out of my Even Better foundation, which I quite liked, but didn't have the coverage I needed after hormones decided to wreak havoc on my face. So I ordered a bottle of Beyond Perfecting, curious about the coverage and the packaging.

I bought the same shade # (18 M-N) that I had in Even Better, but it's a touch too light, so on the darker areas of my face (the chin and …

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Kabana - Green Screen

I bought a 1oz tube to try it out, because physical blockers usually do not look good on my brown skin. I was intrigued because of the tinted versions they have, and I picked up the bronze tint.

It's a very weird texture. It comes out quite runny out of the tube, but as you start rubbing it into your skin, it becomes really thick and hard to move. There is no glide in this product …

Moisturizers - Avene - Clean-Ac

Jul/04/2013

I found this incredibly underwhelming and average. It did nothing for me. I bought it to help my skin recover from over-treatment, and I wanted really mild and soothing products to help my skin return to some sort of normalcy. The description of this product seemed like it would be perfect. But I could have saved myself some dollars by just buying Cetaphil or plain vitamin E cream. And it's …Read more

Jul/04/2013

I read the reviews on here before I bought it, knowing full well that people didn't like the new formulation. But...19% zinc content! I had to try it for myself! So I bought it with a nice discount, and yeah. I'm tempted to go back to my old chemical sunscreen. It does everything everyone has already said - dries quickly, balls up and flakes off, etc.

But I've learned …

Eyeliner - Eyeko - Skinny Liquid Eyeliner - Black

Mar/01/2013

I got the liner in the skinny mini set along with the mascara, and it was on sale, so I didn't pay full price for the thing. I'm surprised at some of the reviews stating it's not a deep black, because mine is a true deep black, and I always have issues with black liners on my brown skin and slightly discolored eyelids. And that's really the only thing I like about the liner …Read more

I got a sample of this last month and was excited to try it. When I had tried it on my hand, it felt quite hydrating and the finish was lovely: a non-shimmery diffused satin finish. And it seemed to be a medium coverage, which is what I was looking for.

I've been using it maybe once a week, on bare skin, over only primer, over primer and set with powder, over primer and set with …
