Hair Color - REVLON - Colorsilk in Brown Black

Used in light ash brown. Did not lift my roots (1 - 2 shades darker than my hair), did not cover grey

Only good thing is it did not fry my hair and refreshed my overall color

Found these in a 2-pack pink / rose colors for $2.99 at my local wallgreens sealed in package.

Thought why not give it a try, I am paying too much for HE products

Well, they are really decent. I use it on the lips, and blot it leaves a nice natural stain

I use it on my cheeks for a nice very sheer natural stain

If you want EASY and NATURAL barely there …

Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Strobe Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/21/2016

I bought 2 to fly into the Strobe age. It is a great moisturizer, but does give me a bit too much Strobe under my LM TM in certain areas. Best used on top of my TM where I want to strobe.

My Becca in Pearl (the liquid) does the same thing, costs $44 for a bottle that lasts me 2-3 years or more and is easier to use and I dispense into small containers for portability.

This …

Blush - Dior - Rosy Glow Awakening Blush

1.0

Mar/21/2016

Glad that I bought it at Sephora and was able to return

Too powdery. There are so many really nice blushes out there, BB and LM are some of my favorite HE and lots of drugstore blushes. I have about 6 that I rotate depending on season - almost all pinks

Just because it says "DIOR" doesn't mean its great stuff nor worth the money

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Face and Body Foundation - White

5.0

Jan/25/2016

This lightens your foundation or TM to adjust color and also adds a nice slip. I like the finish it leaves when I mix 3/4 TM which is too dark, with 1/4 of this.

Tired of chasing down foundations / TM to match my skin, never can match my skin as my skin is always a different color -- so I mix my own, and I also luminize by using a liquid luminizer when I want to be …

Bronzers - Cargo Cosmetics - Bronzer in Medium

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2016

I bought a sample size tin with a sample size cargo blush and brought to my winter caribean vacation

I did not want to bring a heavy make up bag, nor my expensive Hourglass and other products

They worked really nice almost a dupe for my Hourglass, the blusher was pinker than what I normally use but worked lovely for a beach look

Used a small kabuki brush to buff …

Working for me again

I really moisturize my face, take a bit of this and mix some sort of glowing primer in a white or light color to make it match the color of my face

Then I put onto of my face rub it in good

I have to use concealer, and fix it with spray

I have my own home made fix it -- hyaluronic acid (I buy online), with a bit of liquid …

I bought and used the entire tube

PROS
Great nice small brush

CONS
Color was too dark

Dried out in 2 mo and started leaving flakes, had to replace

Expensive for needing a new tube every 2 mo


I now use BLINC and one tube lasts me 4 mo. The color is spot on. I went with one shade lighter. It has not started to flake after over …

Brows - CLINIQUE - Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/12/2015

PROS: The product is great. It has a small wand and keeps your brows in place.

CONS: You get a sample size for $16.50

That is why I rated this so low. I can't give it more than 1 star.

The amount of product you get for $16.50 is VERY VERY small. So tiny, the size of your little pinky or smaller

Within less than 2 weeks, it was already drying …
