Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Butter Gloss

2.0

Feb/13/2017

Easy to apply and feels moisturizing. I didn't have to reapply chopstick once all day and my lips did not feel dry like they generally do when I wear a matte lip product. The issue: ZERO staying power. Would I repurchase? Maybe if I found myself in the vicinity of a NYX store.... because of cheap price and nice color. But this has to be the worst lip product I own besides a Tarte matte …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - 170 Synthetic Rounded Slant Brush

This product is gold. No other way to put it. It has replaced my MAC stippling brushes as it does not shed or streak. My preferred method of applying foundation is still with a damp beauty blender as I firmly believe that this is the method that allows you to use the least amount of product, and the added water gives you a dewy look. So.... I like this for blending things out, stippling in …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

For me this product is simply this: a face cleanser. It helps me to get my makeup off post makeup remover wipes, and to cleanse it so that I can moisturize. I notice no difference one way or the other. My skin doesn't feel any better or worse than when I use other products. While I don't have acne, I wouldn't call this a miracle worker anyway. Very unimpressive product in my …Read more

Moisturizers - Pond's - Dry Skin Cream

To preface, I have incredibly dry skin and live in a cold climate. I love La Mer regardless of what Beautypedia says, because it is the only product that I can use that prevents my winter skin from literally peeling. Ponds is a good back up solution at a remarkably good price. The jar lasts a long time, is very moisturizing (though not a miracle worker), and I often layer it on when my skin is …Read more

Lip Treatments - Peter Thomas Roth - Un-Wrinkle Lip

Dec/30/2016

Maybe I was sold too quickly... but I'm sold. I have been using this for short of two weeks and can see a difference in the lines that were forming on my lips - this includes when my lips are bare, and under my favorite MAC matte lipsticks. The visible difference in such a short amount of time does lead me to think that the difference is simply cosmetic trickery, but regardless, I will keep …Read more

Whoops - meant to leave a 5 star review ;) Also want to add that the price on this REALLY is not bad. It has a long lifetime if you clean it regularly/air dry it, and it's an application game changer.

Concealers - BECCA - Undereye Brightening Corrector

For me, the key to using this is to make sure that my under eye area is very well moisturizer before use. I have dry skin so I use a marula oil, eye cream and moisturizer after washing. You can use this under or over your foundation. It does really brighten up the under area. I use a beauty blender to blend - I think it takes way too long to blend with your finger and is streaky with a brush. You …Read more
