Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2017

This stuff is impressive! Glossier is a company that definitely shines more in makeup than skincare. I enjoy their makeup offerings. So, I like my natural brows, I think they're nice, I've wanted to use brow products over the years just to amp the polish a bit and look a bit more put together, not draw on a whole new brow. Every product I've tried (pomades and pencils) has just …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Nexcare Acne Absorbing Cover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2017

Well, they're not miracle workers but they definitely help whiteheads and cysts that are at a head. They will do nothing for pus that's not ready to leave yet (blergh, sorry if you're eating and reading!). I don't break out too much anymore (thinks to a freakin' hardcore skincare routine, not good genes or anything nice like that), but I do still sometimes get the odd …Read more

Sunscreen - Glossier - Invisible Shield Sunscreen SPF 35

3.0

Jun/01/2017

Despite the tiny size and high price, I had to try this sunscreen and see if it lived it up to the marketing hype. Look at me, spending my hard-earned cash so you don't have to! And really, when it comes to this product, you don't have to. I know it CLAIMS to be the be all and end all of sunscreen, but it's full of lies, sweet little lies. Of course, your mileage my vary, yadda …Read more

Toners - Dear Klairs - Supple Preparation Facial Toner

May/30/2017

Totally shocked there are no reviews for this toner on MakeupAlley yet. I might not be the best first reviewer, because it's the only moisturizing toner I've tried, so I don't have anything to compare it to. However, I am obsessive about skincare and researching my products, and that's how I decided a), that I needed a moisturizing toner, and b), which one to purchase. If you …Read more

Masks - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - 40% Lactic Acid Peel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/15/2017

I just love Muac! It's an unsung skincare hero, same ingredients as pricier brands (Sunday Riley, etc.) but so much cheaper. I am one of those lucky people who experience pigmentation after any little zit or cut, etc. The days of instant healing are most definitely gone for me. This product is so good at fading pigmentation. And extremely gentle. I am an experienced acids user, so I would …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Powder Brush

Dec/08/2016

I bought this brush a few years ago and used it religiously, then I accidentally left it at my mom's, along with some other things. She mailed my other stuff back to me but not this brush, even though I specifically mentioned it. She doesn't even wear makeup?!! Why did she keep it?! Maybe one of my sisters found it at her house and stole it, that is the likely story. See how much I care …Read more

Highlighters - theBalm Cosmetics - Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2016

I'm a highlighter addict! I am powerless to resist that fake glow. So of course I had to try Mary-Lou Manizer, and I can happily say I have no regrets. Packaging is cute, but a bit kitschy for my taste, I prefer something sleeker and more elegant. However the compact is nice and functional. Price a bit high for what is, in all honesty, a shimmery powder. The color pay off is strong and …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Dove - Refresh+Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2016

It just doesn't work. Doesn't make hair feel clean, makes it look only marginally less greasy, doesn't give any texture or volume. I wanted to wash my hair EVEN MORE after using this. Scent wasn't offensive, and price is right, so there are two things in it's favor, but the performance just wasn't there for me.

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/29/2016

Cheap, widely available, many varieties, cute packaging, WORKS, and did I mention, CHEAP?! This stuff is awesome! I have tried so many dry shampoos and was always underwhelmed. I didn't "get" it. The ones I tried only made my hair look marginally less greasy, and I never felt less greasy at all. But I really wanted to wash my hair less, so I NEEDED dry shampoo to work for me! …Read more

Masks - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - 25% Mandelic Acid Peel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2016

Bottom line, this shizz really delivers results. I get kind of angry thinking about all of the super fancy and expensive chemical exfoliators out there, and half of them aren't even formulated at the correct pH to avoid irritation. You can have beautiful skin for not a lot of money, I promise. So, on to the peel, please follow the instructions exactly. I did make the mistake of exfoliating …Read more
