Cleansers - Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser

This is a lovely face wash for when you want a gentle, easy, non irritating cleanse without stripping your skin. It rinses off easily because it's a foam and it's so gentle that I can use it to remove my eye makeup with zero irritation around the eyelids. And it fully removes all traces of the makeup. Although if you are wearing heavier makeup like waterproof mascara or liquid liner I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Stridex - Daily Care Pads - Sensitive with Aloe

I have used this product for over 10 years, and it is the best toner I have ever used. I say that without qualification: it's not that it's great for the price, it's that it simply is a fantastic product, period. If you have normal to oily skin this is a godsend. The 0.5% salicyclic acid and alcohol and fragrance free formula makes it perfect for daily toning and is a gentle but …Read more

Loose Powders - Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder

This is a mediocre loose powder. The good: I appreciate that it is yellow based, which is unusual but very welcomed. I also appreciate that it stands apart as a talc based loosed powder in a sea of garbage silica based loose powders. The bad: It still looks like I'm wearing powder when I use it (a small amount, lightly applied and blended out). I wouldn't call it cake face but it …Read more

Shampoo - Johnson & Johnson - Baby Shampoo

This is so ridiculously effective at deep cleaning makeup brushes. It also doesn't dry out the bristles in natural fiber brushes. I was amazed at how much better this worked than any of my other "real" makeup brush cleaning solutions.

Seeing how the baby shampoo made the caked in makeup literally melt right out of my brushes, and seeing how it's supposedly gentle …

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

An oldie but a goodie.

Overall I am not the biggest NARS fan. Their products are usually good enough and I've never noticed any horrible products. But I also rarely find anything so exceptional that in my humble opinion justifies their overall position as a prestigious and innovative makeup brand. Personally, I could never understand why people were always so excited about the …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Lady Danger

This is pretty much an A+ lipstick. If you're looking for a very bright orange-red, intense coral matte shade, this is the one. The search is over because it doesn't get much better than this. Matte, yet smooth as butter, very pigmented, incredibly long wearing, zero feathering, even application, and the perfect shade of bright orange red. Pair it with MAC Redd lipliner (also an …Read more

Cleansers - Aveeno - Positively Radiant Cleanser

Sep/04/2016

This is one of the better face washes that I've come across in a while. It's great for daily use, it cleans your skin very well without stripping it of necessary moisture and it is truly non-irritating and has no weird smells. This is coming from someone with very oily skin who finds the endlessly peddled "dermatologist recommended" Cetaphil cleanser to be both surprisingly …Read more

I had been eyeing this perfume for a long time since I'm always on the lookout for a good fresh rose perfume, and this had been described as a great choice for a fresh rose scent and had many glowing reviews. No where near where I live carries this in store so I finally took the plunge and ordered it online. I was surprised to find that it is really not a fresh rose scent. The juice is soft …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Clear Brow Gel

One of the products I can't live without. This is the strongest holding eyebrow gel I've ever used, it is fairly heavy duty stuff. It's great at keeping and holding your desired eyebrow shape, even if it goes slightly against your natural hair growth. This is very helpful when you're shaping your brows. Also, even with the great hold it doesn't make your eyebrows crispy …Read more

My favorite eyebrow pencil ever. I use the dark blonde color, which is the perfect ashy tone to look natural for anyone with blonde or light brown hair. Much more flattering than a taupe shade. The stick is very small so the strokes look very natural, especially on the tails of the eyebrows. The twist up design makes it very convenient and quick to apply. It is very pigmented and the perfect …Read more
