The coral sands color is a nice nude color with neutral slight shimmer. I like the triangle shaped doe foot since it seems easier and more precise to apply. Does it last 8 hours? No I don't think any gloss does, but it does have a tacky feel to make it last a bit longer than normal. The major turn off for me is the nasty,plastic chemical scent and taste. It is so strong I can smell it …Read more

Love this cream! For reference I have normal/combo skin so now with dryer weather it is tending to get a bit more dry. I haven't had any breakouts or skin irritation from using this. This is an above average cream to me and one of my favorites that I've tried since my skin looks better using this. If you like water based hyaluronic creams and don't like more oil based creams …Read more

Loose Powders - Too Faced - Peach Perfect Loose Setting Powder

Sep/30/2018

The packaging is so cute and I like that there is a snap lock sifter lid if you travel. If fragrances bother you, it does have a peach scent, but personally I love it. In comparison to LM, the TF PP may be better for drier skin especially. I feel this is a much finer, refined powder and gives a nice blur to the face. It is also tinted whereas the LM is whiter. The LM the grains of the powder …Read more

Loose Powders - BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder

Sep/29/2018

It is an overall nice, light finishing powder. The expiration date listed is 6 months. I probably used it 5 times and after less than the expiration date listed the cooling sensation is gone. I think it has been only about 3 months. I did keep the lid closed tightly in a cabinet. Just something to note that the main cooling feature of the product will be gone very quickly so it is best to …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish - Soft and Gentle

Sep/27/2018

I am 33 years old. I saw lots of good reviews, but this doesn't seem anything like Mac's other skin finishes such as lightscapade. Other skinfinishes from MAC I can swipe all over the face gently. This was super glittery so I only used on the cheekbones. Visible glitter chunks and major fall out all over your face through the day leaves you looking like a vampire from Twilight. The …Read more

Cleansers - Dermalogica - Special Cleansing Gel

One of the worst, stripping cleansers you can use. I was surprised to see cheap sulfates as the main ingredient. I have normal combination skin. This strips all the moisture out and leaves it with a tight feeling. The only plus is the nice lavender scent. Will be using the rest as a brush cleaner since I am sure it will strip the makeup off good.

Concealers - Maybelline New York - DREAM BRIGHTENING CREAMY CONCEALER

Oct/04/2017

I thought this looked interesting. A brightening creamy concealer. This is very creamy and smooth to apply, but it blends away to nothing but some fine shimmer! I'd say I have medium range of dark circles. All this seemed to do was accentuate the dark circles because of the sheerness of the formula and the shimmer. Called attention to it. I wouldn't expect this to cover any sort …Read more

To me it is NOT a dupe for Too Faced BTS. Packaging looks similar, but ingredients/formulation isn't the same.
However, it is a great mascara for drugstore and similar to BTS. I had been applying Lash Paradise on one eye and BTS on the other for a few days. I usually do this when I want to compare mascara to see which brand/type I like better.

To me, BTS is more lifting …

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

May/21/2017

On a budget, this is a decent foundation. The packaging with the spatula is fantastic! It does smell strongly of paint, but not enough to bother me. I do like the feel of the dry down of the foundation. Not dewy, but a dry touch. It has medium coverage. Doesn't have super long staying power though. Maybe nice for quick makeup days where you don't need makeup to last all day. It …Read more

First off, I don't like the glass bottle. It makes it hard to get any product out of the bottle. Make sure you shake the bottle well prior to use as it does separate a bit. It does feel nice going on. There is no staying power however, and the coverage is what I'd consider light and at most barely medium. It also sinks into pores especially around the nose area and gets all weird …Read more
