Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Asterwood Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum

I am new to this brand, but I use this as well as their Vitamin C serum. Their packaging is great. The caps stay on tightly, even with the droppers on the end. The hyaluronic aid serum is gentle and absorbs into the skin quickly. I usually use this AFTER I apply my facial oils in the evening. It seals everything in. I used to use this as the first step before my oils but I like switching it …Read more

Highlighters - essence - Pure Nude Highlighter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/28/2016

I have found my HG highlighter! This goes under my category of "YouTube made me buy it," and I am so glad I did. It's nearly impossible to overdo it with this product as it's very finely milled and gives a sheer, lit from within look. It's not chunky or glittery at all. Price is right, especially when paired with a coupon at Ulta. The pan is huge, so I don't think I …Read more

Toners - Pixi - Glow Tonic

Dec/14/2016

YouTube made me buy it. The wonderful results made me buy it again. The bottle is small but it will last you a long time if you use the right application. I use thin 100% cotton pads that don't suck up too much product. I actually cut them into small squares so that I can utilize a small amount of product which works very effectively. It has helped unclog my pore, make my skin appear …Read more

Mascara - Marc Jacobs - Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

Dec/14/2016

I usually don't use or buy high end mascaras (or much HE makeup at all) but the initial reviews, especially Kandee Johnson's YT vid sold me on it. I was not disappointed. After using it pretty consistently for about 4 months, I am still thrilled with it. It has not dried out, if fact, it performs even better than when I first opened the tube. I am able to achieve a dramatic …Read more

Polishes - wet n wild - Megalast - Wild Wild Violet

2.0

Jun/15/2016

Lovely, lovely color. Horrid, horrid staining. I have never, ever had another polish stain my nails so badly as this one. Steer clear, unless you always keep your nails painted which I guess I am going to have to do until this bright pink staining goes away. I will have to buy some bubble white solution. I was so excited that this was a dupe for OPI I Manicure For Beads but nothing can replace …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2016

Just had to put in my two cents. There are two versions--one for waterproof makeup and one regular. I have the regular micellar water with the pink cap. I mainly use this for refreshing my skin upon waking in the morning or as a final step in my nightly cleansing routine to get that last bit of residue off. I would not use this exclusively to remove my eye makeup because it would require too much …Read more

Lipstick - Jordana Cosmetics - Modern Matte Lipstick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2016

I bought the shade Pretty Matte. The first thing I did, before a single swipe onto my lips, was nick the top of the lippie with the lid. At least one is able to twist the product back down after application which helps with the shoddy packaging. Packaging aside, I am loving this color once it's on. However, it is extremely dry going on. I wasn't prepared, nor were my lips the first time …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Palette - Blue Had Me At Hello 737

Mar/24/2016

A new trend for spring is a pop of color on or under the eye lid. Turquoise and blue are some popular colors showing in makeup looks on the runways this spring. I pulled out this palette today and am blown away by the pigmentation, buttery softness and wear in these shadows. (I've loved them for years but I'm continually impressed with this line when I compare it to other products that …Read more

Other - Crest - 3D White Vivid Radiant Mint toothpaste

Mar/24/2016

In light of the current reviews, and the fact that I regularly use this toothpaste, I checked out Snopes. Here's part of what is published there: In August 2014 Crest announced that even though microbeads are "completely safe," they would be phasing out their use, and all Crest products would be microbead-free by March 2016:
Q: What are Microbeads?
A: Microbeads, also …

Contour - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Contour Palette

Feb/24/2016

Once again: YouTube made me buy it. Holy grail status! This palette is so good that I just repurchased a second (on sale, of course) so I could have one for my bag and one for home. The lightest color (I have the Light palette) is great for a quick brow, inner corner or face highlight, the warm brown is great for warming up the face, eyelid crease, neck, etc. The cooler brown is perfect for a …Read more
