BB Cream - Unlisted Brand - Espoir - Nude Cushion Dewy

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/21/2017

I'm so upset with the cushion! I read several glowing reviews, and was incredibly excited to try it. Alas, it is one of the worst cushions I have tried! Not only is it not dewy as the name would indicate, I would go so far as to describe the finish as drying---a step below matte! This cushion transferred easily, enlarged the appearance of pores (ones that I didn't know I had), was not …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Glossier - Perfecting Skin Tint

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/03/2017

I'm pretty disappointed in the several products I received from Glossier thus far. Perhaps I should've hydrated more first, but I was hoping this product would function as a tinted moisturizer of sorts for cloudy and lazy winter days. Unfortunately, it does not hydrate and in fact is drying.

I have good skin (generally) with some minor PIE and broken capillaries I like to …

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2016

I purchased the travel size of this product quite a while ago, and used it once or twice before deeming it ineffective. (At that time, I did not notice any notable effects from usage. Looking back, I had been to conservative in my application and not applied enough.)

About a week or so ago, I rediscovered this in my Skincare/Product graveyard. I began testing it every several days …

Foundations - Ellis Faas - Skin Veil Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2016

This is a high-end, beautifully crafted product from a brand that I really love conceptually. (I love their aesthetic and branding. The website contains quirky descriptions and unconventional how-to videos. I love that their products are "only tested on super models" and therefore not tested on un-consenting animals.) The foundation itself is definitely expensive, but as with several …Read more

Lip Treatments - Too Faced - Lip Injection Extreme

4.0

Jul/05/2016

I did not particularly want to like this product, seeing as I'm not a fan of Too Faced's branding and packaging. (For their price point, I find the aesthetic and packaging to be unappealing. To me, it looks quite literally cheap.)

With that said, I'm currently experimenting with finding the best topical lip plumper, and this is the most effective thus far. Similar …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Real Chemistry - Luminous 3-Minute Peel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/22/2016

Oh my gosh...

I received this as a deluxe sample quite a while ago, and because I already had several chemical exfoliants in my rotation, I didn't dare add a more "physical" exfoliant due to the nature of my sensitive skin. However, I really, really wish I had tested this sooner, because it's life changing! I had used this 4 times in the past week or so (total …

Loose Powders - Laura Mercier - Secret Brightening Powder

4.0

Jan/20/2016

This is a good product but because I haven't really delved into an exploration of setting powders, I don't have much data to compare this to other under-eye setting powders.

With that said, as soon as I began using this to set my under-eye concealer, it completely improved the performance of my under-eye liner and shadow, as well as the longevity of my tight line on my upper …

Lip Treatments - Dior - Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2016

This is a highly effective product. It's a very high cost per amount of product but it truly is lip maximizing. I haven't found any ready to wear "plumping formulas" that have been as effective as this one.

I find myself applying this throughout the day when wearing drying liquid lipsticks. It keeps my lips hydrated and therefore plump in appearance. I also use …

Crème - CHANTECAILLE - Future Skin Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2016

Like others, I love Chantecaile's Just Skin and had been searching for something with a bit more coverage for winter. Alas, I decided to finally purchase Future Skin after perusing for samples online fruitlessly. (Note: I e-mailed Chantecaille and requested a foundation sample in my color, seeing as it's not stocked in any stores within 100 miles. They never responded.)

I …

Sunscreen - Supergoop! - City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 PA+++

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2015

Dislike! Obtained a deluxe sample and decided to test under my Chantecaille tinted moisturizer. Finish was strangely drying, considering the serum-like texture. This product left a slight white cast, which isn't problematic for me but could be for others.

My biggest issue was the breakouts this product caused. Wore for a 12+ hour day, and when I removed my makeup that evening, my …
