Toners - MAC Cosmetics - Lightful Softening Lotion

5.0

Apr/14/2015

I've bought this over and over and over again. I use it as a toner before putting on serum and/or moisturizer. This balances out my skin, and it's helped lighten any scars that I have from pimples very well. If you use this with any of the other Lightful products, it will work even better for reducing scarring. My skin loves this stuff!

Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Moisture Cream

5.0

Apr/14/2015

Buy this in the 1oz "travel" tube for $10 since it's a better value, and the packaging is more hygienic if jar packaging is a turn off for you. This moisturizer works well for my dry/eczema prone skin during the coldest, driest winter months. I use it day and night, and it never has broken me out or irritated my skin. Doesn't have a lot of fancy skincare ingredients, but it …Read more

Treatments - Nailtiques - Formula 2 PLUS Nail Protein

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2015

Never tried Formula 2 and went straight to using 2 Plus since I wanted a stronger formula. My nails naturally grow well, flex, and peel easily. This formula works extremely well for my type of nails. They rarely peel, and they're very hard/durable now. I use it even when I don't paint my nails with a color since it keeps them healthy/looking good. This also works nicely as a base coat …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Whisper [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2013

I hate almost every single lip product drugstores have to offer. They've always got one fatal flaw, and I've generally been turned off by a lot of budget lipsticks and lipglosses. These guys are fantastic, though. I've got solidly pink lips, so sheer lipsticks tend to be a gamble. However, the Color Whispers are everything I've ever wanted in a sheer lip color. They are …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation

5.0

Jan/08/2013

This foundation gets a bad rap for a lot reasons that I understand. It's one of those formulations that makes a lot of people scratch their heads and wonder why anybody would really care about it since it has characteristics that most people don't look for anymore. It's full coverage, thick, and pretty heavy on some skin types.

However, I recently gave this foundation a …

Cleansers - Skin effects by Dr. Jeffrey Dover - Glycolic Cream Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2012

I had a good amount of whiteheads on my forehead that I developed when I was using a cold cream style liquid cleanser. I tried this due to the glycolic acid, and it got rid of them. It has also balanced my dry-combination skin without irritating it (sensitivity issues). I've had a bottle of this for a few months and still haven't ran out. More expensive than most drugstore cleansers but …Read more

Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel Moisturizer

May/15/2012

I've been using this for about two months now, and I can safely say that this moisturizer is great. My breakouts have subsided significantly, and I no longer get whiteheads on my forehead. Moisturizes my dry cheeks without over-hydrating my forehead. Would probably be a perfect fit for dry-combination skin like mine, combination, or oily. May not be hydrating enough for dry to very dry skin.

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Lipstick

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2012

I initially really liked all the Urban Decay lipsticks I had, but I grew to hate them over time. I thought the texture was creamy, but they ended up getting very gloppy in texture. It became difficult to even out the color when I applied it. The fragrance is also disgusting. I usually try to ignore that kind of thing even though I am sensitive to smells, but it was just too off-putting after …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush- Melba

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2012

I like peach blushes, and I appreciate the brown undertones that Melba has. Sometimes it's nice to have a blush that blends in with my skin tone a little better (NC 40/42 or Barcelona/Syracuse in NARS Sheer Glow) rather than having to blend it out a lot. Pairs well with warm-toned lip and eye colors.

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Liberte

5.0

May/15/2012

Nice take on Tangerine Tango (2012 Pantone Color of the Year). Liberté works well with my skin tone (NC 40/42 or Barcelona/Syracuse in NARS Sheer Glow), and it's not incredibly difficult to manipulate. I have issues overdoing blush for some reason, so I am not upset by a more forgivable pigmentation level that can be built up easily.
