Masks - LUSH - 1000 Millihelens Jelly Face Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I was at LUSH Liverpool, aka "is this heaven???" for LUSH fans -- seriously, there is a conveyor belt of bath bombs, this is NOT A DRILL -- and, as a long time fan of some of their Fresh Face Masks and Mask of Magnaminty, I wanted to try one of the newer Jelly Face Mask formulations. The very sweet sales associate suggested 1000 Millihelens to me, when I told her that my skin tends to …Read more

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter - Moonstone

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Let me preface my review by saying that if lipstick is my number one makeup obsession, then highlighters come in at a very close number two. My friends look at me askance when I wax poetic about whichever one I'm wearing on my face at the time, but in my defense -- sometimes I want to look like I've slathered my cheeks in oil and face planted into a pool of diamond dust, and sometimes I …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Sephora Collection - Sephora Matte Perfection Tinted Moisturizer

4.0

2 months ago

After a summer abroad, even with wearing SPF, my face tanned enough that I couldn't wear my usual base (NARS Velvet Matte Tint in Alaska). I didn't want to splurge on a replacement for something I wouldn't need for a super long time and decided give this a try in 07 Linen, which is the slightest bit too warm for me but the closest color match.

The pros: this is definitely …

Cleansers - Pond's - Makeup Remover Cleansing Balm

5.0

9 months ago

I'm a fan of double-cleansing so I'm always in the market to try a new balm or oil cleanser. My go to is the Trader Joe's Cleansing Oil -- getting a skincare staple while I'm out picking up my favorite snacks? Yes please! -- but I decided to give this one a go. After using up an entire jar (and having purchased my second) over the course of roughly two months, my thoughts: …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Powermatte Lip Pigment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2018

The BEST liquid lipsticks on the market (I said what I said!).

Sephora describes the product as an "innovative, weightless, matte liquid lip pigment with ultra-flexible, lasting wear." It's interesting that they don't call it a "liquid lipstick" and instead a "liquid lip pigment." This description is heightened by its super watery texture; the …

Lip Treatments - Sephora Collection - Lip scrub Honey

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2018

I bought this because it was touted as a lip scrub in an adorable and cheerful yellow cardboard tube. After using it all up, here is what I can tell you.

The good: this product works well as a lip balm. The texture isn't waxy, and I usually slathered it on before bedtime and woke up with smooth lips. I like the scent -- an inoffensive sweet floral -- but, as the previous reviewer …

Sunscreen - MyChelle - Sun Shield Liquid Tint SPF 50

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/30/2018

I bought this as a one-and-done product for this past summer, as I was one of the faculty members leading a study abroad program in a hot and humid country. My basic requirements were: high SPF, light coverage and no need for a mirror. This fit the bill perfectly, as it had mineral SPF 50 and just evened out my skin enough that the redness in my cheeks was muted, but not completely gone; because …Read more

Masks - Peter Thomas Roth - Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/15/2018

As per Sephora, "[t]his powerful, triple-action, manual, chemical, and enzymatic exfoliating treatment addresses a dull, aging, and congested complexion in three ways: it exfoliates with pumpkin enzyme, reveals with alpha hydroxy acid, and polishes with aluminum oxide crystals. It also helps even the appearance of skin tone, smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and clarify to reveal …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - RIMMEL - #Insta FLAWLESS Perfecting Radiant Skin Tint

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/16/2018

I will unfortunately be returning this -- the coverage is sheer, which I like, and of the two shade options available (come on, Rimmel), the lighter one works relatively well with my yellow/neutral undertone. However, it sits quite heavily on my face; it never sinks in, and when I touch my cheek I can feel it as though it hasn't quite meshed with my skin, if that makes sense? I think perhaps …Read more

Eyeliner - H&M - Colour Essence Eye Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2018

I stumbled upon these eyeliners while in Canada, and vaguely remembering that some beauty bloggers had discussed them positively, I decided to give them a try. After months of using them, I have to say: believe the hype! I'm not sure how H&M's other beauty products fare, but these eyeliners are worth every penny -- creamy, sets without fading for the entirety of the day (with one …Read more
