Brows - SHISEIDO - Natural Eyebrow Pencil in Natural Black

This is an HG product for me! I LOVE this eyebrow pencil! It really is natural looking! I have dark brown brows which are so dark they look like they could be black. They are not a warm colored brown. All brow powders and pencils I have tried in browns have been too warm and blacks have been too harsh. This is like a greyish black, not too harsh, just perfect. It blends with my brows …Read more

Mascara - Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara

Dec/02/2011

Normally I research all my products before I buy them, but I happened to be in Target and decided to check out Physician's Formula. The ingredients didn't sound too bad like so many brands claiming to be organic and natural but aren't. I was specifically looking for a mascara with a big fat brush like CG Lashblast and this is it! And at a drug store price too?! Even better! I …Read more

Mascara - 100% Pure - Fruit Pigmented ultra lengthening mascara

This is a very nice mascara with a good brush. It definitely helps to lengthen your lashes and avoids clumping. Does not smudge. I don't know if it runs, I can only assume it would if you cried. But for normal every day it's a good natural looking mascara. It also smells nice too! It has a fruity smell of course ;-)

This was an ok mascara. The brush was just ok and it did have some problems with clumping. I think if the brush was better it could have combed out the clumps better. Also if it had a better brush I might have been able to get the volume I wanted as well. It gives ok volume, I just prefer more dramatic volume and obvious no clumping! I have switched to 100 Percent Pure's Black Tea …Read more

This is my HG foundation at the moment. I can't really picture myself finding another since I've switched to using organic products and it was hard enough to find an organic foundation that worked for me. I love this foundation so much I would compare this to MAC. I was using MAC Pro Longwear before this. However, this foundation does not feel heavy to me. I mean it can if you put …Read more

Powder - Gabriel - Dual Powder Foundation

Very decent powder. I got it in light beige, the 2nd lightest shade. It looks very orangey in the compact but does not go on that way. I only use it as a setting powder so I cannot speak for it working as a foundation on its own. As a setting powder a little goes a long way and it gives a nice finish and helps to control my oil very well throughout the day. I don't like the sponge it …Read more

I have been using this product for 5 months now. I just purchased my 2nd bottle! I tested a sample for a week, 1&1/2-2 weeks before my wedding. I was SOLD! I purchased it right away. Normally I spend a lot of time testing a product to be sure I want to invest in buying it. I wore it for the entire week before/after my wedding (I used a makeup artist & airbrush for my actual wedding) …Read more

LOVE the packaging! Super cute! The puff is small and thin and I hope they sell refill puffs because you cannot fit a regular size puff in this compact or it won't close. I don't mind the small thin puff like other reviewers do because you really don't need much product at all. I set my foundation in the morning with it with a powder brush and I have to be very careful because …Read more

Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Idole Fresh Wear ] [DISCONTINUED]

I'm Ivoire 4 in this and it is a perfect match. I don't think it's exactly matte and it's definitely not 18hr shine free as it claims, however I still think it's a good foundation.

It's very natural and dewy in my opinion. But if I set it with E.L.F. HD Powder it does become more matte. I have combo oily skin and 99% of the time my skin is oily. So I …

I'm an NW15 in MAC. I am the lightest shade of this I believe, Porcelain. The next color up would be too yellow. The Porcelain is a bit paling though so I have to use bronzer to warm it up. Plus I have to use more concealer than I normally would have to. It looks chalky before I even set with powder. So I have to spritz with my Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist to get a more natural …Read more
