Skincare - Face - Yes To - Yes to Tomatoes 2-Step Nose Kit Buh-Bye Blackheads!

I think this should be called No to Tomatoes. This is a two step kit - the first part is a charcoal based gel cleanser and a big black cotton swab to apply it. It's a lot of product and feels kind of wasteful. You rub that all over your nose, rinse, and then apply the second part, the nose strip, while your skin is still wet. The nose strip is thick and it's difficult to get it to …Read more

I received a few samples of the liquid gloss version of this and loved the effect! I tend to stick to neutrals and sheers. I feel like this is a cross between Cliniques Black Honey and a MLBB - it enhances your lip color and darkens it slightly. On me this works for everything and since I prefer balm type glosses, I paid the hefty price tag for this version. It is pricey but I reach for this …Read more

Yes this is an overpriced powder puff and only the pink side works, but I love it and use it every morning to buff in my Silk Natural Ultimate Luxury powder as a primer. I feel like this works really well to create a nice smooth finish - this is also much softer than my softest powder brush. I like the way I can fit my fingers into the sponge and then glide it across the different parts of my …Read more

Add me to this list of fans. As much as I love purple, I tend to stay away from it as an eye makeup color because it never seems to work and I always end up looking stoned or super tired. But I really like this - not so much as an eyeshadow but as a smokey liner. I like to tightline with a black pen liner and then use a small pointed brush to smudge this into my lashline. Very pretty and not …Read more

This is a brush that I don't think too much about but actually use almost every day and LOVE! It is soft, washes well and is great for buffing in my cream foundation or concealer!

This is my holy grail pen liner that I use almost every single day to tighline before I do anything else with eye makeup. I have a ton of pen liners lying around and from time to time I will pick up one of those but I always come back to this one. In terms of staying power and also the softness of the tip just works for me. Definitely notice a difference between this and other liners!

I usually keep the black pencil around for my waterline and over the years have tried adding other colors like the navy blue and brown. I like them but don't LOVE them - they dry out a little bit quickly so are tough to use on the waterline after a few weeks, and I don't feel like the staying power is as great as black - but that tends to be my experience with most eyeliners.

I have the 05 for Brunettes - I love the color, I love the compact, I love the silky feel of the powder BUT (and it's a big BUT) - this breaks me out :-( this makes me very sad because I want to love this bronzer - I won't get rid of it and every few months I take it out and give it a try, and each time I feel like I break out and put it away again feeling a little sad.

I have bought this powder so many times despite its (relatively) high cost. I started off using it as a treatment powder and was impressed with how smooth and nice my skin looked - even without concealer or any other makeup! Now that I'm into priming with powder, I use this, and also sometimes use a light dusting as a finishing powder. I have never broken out from this and I like the …Read more

I got this from my sister. The color is a perfect match and this has never broken me out. I put on a light dusting of powder to prime, then dab this over my face before blending with a foundation brush or damp beauty blender. Then I go back and dab a little bit of concealer over any major imperfections. This looks natural, wears well and washes off easily. It's not super oily but does …Read more
