Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion

Looks like I’m in the minority here, but I find the scent of this lotion too strong and cloying to lead to any type of relaxation or sleep! I love lavender, but this is a very very sweet scent that is mixed with other things to where it doesn’t smell like natural lavender to me. I also had the twilight body spray, which shares the same scent. I gave both away to a friend!

Treatments (Eye) - Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare - Ferulic Acid + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum

This is one of few products that does what it says it will do. I've tried several eye creams, but this is the best. Its a moisturizing serum that I use morning and night. It has smoothed out my undereye area and the outside corners. Concealer wears well over this. Full of good ingredients but doesn't burn my eyes. Seems to improve puffiness too, which also makes concealer look better. I …Read more

Liquid - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

This is my new favorite foundation. I switched from make up forever hd foundation. The urban decay foundation looks more natural and has a more matte finish without looking too dry. It doesn't break me out either, which the MUFE foundation seemed to do. I also find this to be long lasting. Like the reviewer below, there is still a lot of makeup left on my face when I wash it off at the end …Read more

I have soooo many different lipsticks that I like, but this is the one I consistently come back to. Like others have said, it's a nude that has just enough color. It makes my lips looks naturally fuller. Most nudes wash me out, but this one doesn't even though it's pretty light. It's opaque, so I kind of dab it on. I'll put gloss on top if I want it shinier. Alone …Read more

Fragrances - Prada - Infusion d'Iris EDP

I'm always on the lookout for a fragrance that I will actually wear, and this is it. To me, this smells sophisticated and uptight in a good way, if that makes sense. It's definitely not 'pretty' in the typical sense, but I feel pretty when I wear it. I wear it to work because I feel it is subtle. It is long lasting and I can smell it on my coat at the end of the day. I have …Read more

I recently discovered this while I was looking for something to mix with my studio fix fuid to make it a bit lighter in texture and to make it less flat looking. The woman at the MAC counter recommended this, and I really like it. I'm not into anything with obvious shimmer or sparkle, which is why I like this so much. It adds just the right amount of radiance. I have only used it mixed with …Read more

No matter what I do, I cannot get this lipstick to look good texture-wise. It shows every lip imperfection and is streaky. I don't have this problem with most other lipsticks. Angel does this on me too. I just doesn't work for me.

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

This is a great concealer/highlighter. I use it under my eyes in the half closer to my nose. It covers darkness well. I don't think this would be enough coverage for those looking to hide very dark circles. I also use it under my brows to even out my skin tone and add some dimension. I also use it around my lips to make them look a bit fuller. It does not crease under my eyes, which is rare …Read more

I have a ton of makeup, but this liner is a staple that I always wind up coming back to. This pretty much matches my natural lip color, perhaps a bit deeper. Im an NC25 with mauvey pigmented lips for reference. It's great to give depth to paler nude lip color or to match with a mlbb shade. I would definitely recommend this to people with pigmented lips looking for a natural liner. I apply it …Read more

I am surprised that I like this foundation because I always assumed high end was better. This is one of the better foundations that I have tried, and I've tried many. I have combination skin, leaning on the oily side. In MAC foundation, I'm an NC20-25. The first great thing about this foundation is the color range. I found a really close match in w3. I considered n3, which might also be …Read more
