Toners - Dear Klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Toner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I tried this hoping for lightweight moisture for warm humid days. It has provided that... it makes my skin feel smooth, plump, and supple ( as the name suggests ).

The problem is that after about an hour, my entire face turns day- glo pink every time I use this. I suspect it's the high percentage of butylene glycol, as I had a similar reaction to the CSI l--aa serum, which also …

Sunscreen - Dear Klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++

5.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I have been using this for around two months now, on a daily basis.

I love it. Ive stuck to zinc - based ss for years due to sensitivities. I thought my usual Replenix 50 spray was pretty non - drying. After a week of using the Klairs instead, my rough cheeks weren't at all rough any more and my face isn't feeling dry.

It's fragrance isn't strong , and …

Mascara - Blinc - Mascara Amplified

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2015

Blinc Amplified is a tubing mascara that gives a great look for work or casual looks. It has a small-medium diameter brush with fairly tight,traditional bristles. The color is a nice black, but not the deepest. It gives nice definition, and can do a lovely fluttery look. It gives me fair volume and length- good for a tubing mascara. One coat looks natural, and two can go on nicely without any …Read more

Mascara - Cargo Cosmetics - Better-Than-Waterproof Black

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2015

No. Just no. Let's start at the ending- removal. This is hands-down the hardest -to-remove mascara I've ever used. It's a tubing mascara that no amount of warm water and oil cleanser can get off. I've worn several different tubing mascaras, and have never experienced one like this. I felt like I was pulling out my lashes trying to remove it. I can't even bring myself to …Read more

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Geek Chic-Idjits

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2015

Idjits by Geek Chic is a loose eyeshadow, a beautiful warm, almost russet brown with the most amazing golden, green, and ruby glitter. It's truly one of the most gorgeous eye shadows I've ever seen. Geek Chic creates some stunning shadows.
The problem is, I can't keep that gorgeous glitter on my eyes. Even with primer and Pixie Epoxy, carefully patting on the shadow …

Mascara - Jordana Cosmetics - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2015

Sooo disappointed! Jordana is a Leaping Bunny certified company, and very affordable, so I really wanted this to work. Most people seem to have success with this mascara, but I had a very weird, deal-breaking problem.
For some reason, this actually curled the tips of my lashes under. Yes, I said under. My lashes naturally curl up towards my lids... it's their one good …

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2015

This is one of the better mascaras that I've used - and I've used dozens. The brush has traditional bristles, in a slight hourglass shape. It has a blunt, squared off tip instead of narrowing to a point. You'd think that would make it difficult to get the inside and outside corner lashes covered, but it actually works well. The bristles are very tightly formed, allowing me to …Read more

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Geek Chic Cosmetics-The Trickster

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2015

The Trickster is perhaps the most wearable eye shadow I've ever known. Described on their website as "golden tan", to me it is not golden or tan, but, rather perfectly neutral light champagne beige with just enough magical fairy dust shimmer to light up the eye area. It is simply lovely both visually and texturally. I use this on almost a daily basis. It works beautifully as a …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Lash Injection

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2014

Too Faced Lash Injection is a tubing mascara that comes off easily with oil as well as with warm water. It is a rich black, one of the blackest I've seen. It has a traditional style bristle wand, which gets to most of my lashes, but has some difficulty getting to the outermost and innermost corners.

Unlike others, I've experienced no flaking , even after 14-hour days. In …

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Geek Chic Cosmetics - We're All Infected

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2014

Geek Chic Cosmetics is a vegan indie brand that I find hard to resist. They create gorgeous eyeshadows, and offer huge samples to allow you to try colors you may hesitate to try otherwise. The samples come in clamshell-style containers, which spill easily, thus 3 lippies for packaging. Full sizes are in screw-top containers.

We're All infected is from their Walking Dead themed …
