Blush - Sleek MakeUP - Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/14/2017

A rare 5 star rating from me, but I am entirely pleased. I got the medium and light versions. The contour is matte. The highlighter is smooth and subtle. The medium highlight is on the peach side. The light highlight is more white silvery. The blush is not a blush in the traditional sense. It's more like a cheek enhancer. From the medium I used the last color as a sun flush type of bronzer …Read more

I wear moisturizer with sunscreen (everybody hoping to stave off spots and wrinkles should) but oftentimes either my foundation goes patchy over it. Oh if only I could just tint my sunscreen!! I bought coverfx but I didn't love it. It was equally pricey. I bought this and I adore it!! Well just FYI it turns my sunscreen into tinted moisturizer so very well. I'm pretty happy about it …Read more

Lip Treatments - Carmex - Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm

1.0

Dec/16/2016

Whatever is in here, be careful if you have sensitive skin. Been using regular old Carmex in a pot for decades. Thought, oh this is cute and convenient! Well, once you twist it up it doesn't twist down and more importantly caused an extreme allergic reaction that has just begun to subside after a week of blistering and peeling. So I guess it's a love hate product but a total thumbs down …Read more

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

This is a difficult review to write because of my love hate relationship with this foundation. My skin without makeup is good texture, faint fine lines, nice looking skin with mild blemishes. This is the foundation I would use to get full coverage "perfect" looking skin for pictures or a full makeup look, but up close or natural looking? Nope. It's thick, and like many people say …Read more

Foundations - Marc Jacobs - Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate

Mar/08/2016

First off I got matched to medium beige number 34. I'm about nc25-30, but this was like 2 shades too dark and orange for me. It is super pigmented! It does cover everything! And that's when it all goes downhill. It's wayyyyyy too clingy to textured skin. I have some fine lines, some unevenness, but at this point people comment on how nice my skin is, especially for a mid 40s woman …Read more

Treatments (Face) - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Homemade Vitamin C Serum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2016

Weighing in on the boiling water situation, the Internet is a wonderful place. The melting temp of vitamin c is 190 degrees. Anything short of that will not destroy or destabilize or whatever other term people are using. If you are wondering how hot 190 degrees is, 190 is insufficient to brew a good cup of espresso though it is okay to make tea. If you can stick your finger in the water, it is …Read more

Treatments (Face) - VICHY - Idealia Serum

Feb/23/2016

The other reviews were accurate. This is a "feel good" serum only, but has no significant or lasting results. The bottle is pretty, pump dispenser efficient, price is $40 which is neither here nor there for a serum. It has a pink pearliness which gives brightness to the complexion by reflecting light and adding color, and a lovely light scent that is very pleasant. Dries quickly and …Read more

Concealers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Concealer

Jan/21/2016

The packaging, strangely gimmicky but sanitary. This is the new concealer for 2016 that has a white plastic ball shape at the tip. If you like sticky moist dewy concealer with super high coverage, consider this one. It's like KA sse in tube form. A tiny drop goes a long way, it doesn't feel slippery, and it doesn't catch on dryness if you apply it with a patting motion. It covers a …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Gwen Stefani eye shadow palette

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/21/2016

So much disappointment here. I had super high hopes and this was something I purchased as soon as it came out. I love Gwen and I loved how this palette looked. The colors, the packaging, top marks! The performance however was very low. They applied dry and patchy and were hard to blend. The neutrals ran distinctly warm on my lids, darker than how they looked in the pan, and made my eyes look …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Philosophy - The Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel Pads

Jun/28/2015

I like the giant pad because it feels like I can cover my whole face with it. I don't like drippy small pads. There isn't any stinging. It's just ok for me, dr. Brandt's are stronger by far. I believe I have skin that thrives on tough love. I need lots of exfoliation. I think this is a product that does what it promises for sensitive skin. But it's not cost effective for …Read more
