This is a gorgeous primer. I am on my second tube already, and the first tube lasted well over a year with almost daily use. You get a lot in the tube. I love using this with my Silk Creme foundation; I think the two work perfectly together. However, this seems to work well with every foundation I've put over it. The shimmer is not apparent on your face and it just give a beautiful peachy …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - bareMinerals - COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

Feb/11/2015

I'm an nc20/25 with golden undertones and purchased this in Buttercream. I loved the finish of this foundation at first, as I prefer a dewy/satiny look, but it just did not last on my skin with or without primer. I have a normal skin type and usually do not have issues with this. It melted off around 5 hours during my work day indoors. Though it feels hydrating when applied, throughout the …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Fresh Scent Dry Shampoo

Dec/31/2014

This is the best dry shampoo that I have ever used. In fact, I love it so much that I have already gone through four cans. It doesn't leave a dirty, weighed down residue like Tresemme or Oscar Blandi. It leaves my hair light and fluffy with good texture and volume. I have dark hair and find that the slight white residue brushes right out with a brush or by tousling the root area with my …Read more

I started noticing some fine lines and slight dryness under my eyes which was making my concealer crease for the first time. I've been rough with my undereye area the past few months because my mascara is wp and extremely difficult to take off. I wanted something to help prevent the area from getting worse and found excellent reviews that stated all its wonderful ingredients on both MUA and …Read more

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

Feb/06/2014

I really wanted to love this product due to the glowing reviews and skincare benefits, but I just can't seem to understand what the hype is about. I bought this from Ulta for around $31 since I had a 20% off coupon (a great time to wait for if you're hesitant about the price). I think $38 for this is a bit steep, however it is 1.7 fl oz. which makes the price more justifiable imo. This …Read more

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

Dec/18/2013

I tried this with high hopes because of the relatively good reviews I had read online. However, his foundation did not work for me. I have normal to combo skin and always put on moisturizer before foundation, but this foundation accentuated dry spots like crazy. It's extremely thick, dries cakey, and makes my skin look dull. I had to mist my face with 6 sprays of Fix+ to get this foundation …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss - 107

Rimmel Kate 107 is red with a dose of vampy berry/plum which makes it sexy but also very chic and sophisticated. It has a beautiful richness to it and becomes more vampy the more you layer it. It's bold enough that random people have complimented me on this lipstick, but it somehow manages to be very wearable and more comfortable in comparison to my other red lipsticks. Unique color and …Read more

Lip Liners - MAC Cosmetics - Redd Lip Liner

This is a must-have for red lip lovers with yellow undertones. This is a perfect match for orangey reds like MAC Lady Danger and So Chaud, and I am even able to use it with more neutral reds like Russian Red. Not sure why Redd lipliner is overlooked, but I believe it's a versatile, beautiful creamy orangey red that looks good even on its own.

Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation

Jan/09/2013

This is hands down the most beautiful, lit-from-within foundation I have ever tried. Its medium coverage and produces the most gorgeous satin glow that brightens my complexion without looking artificial or overly dewy. It reminds me of a longer lasting, more lit from within/glowy-without-being-dewy version of NARS Sheer Glow mixed with Chanel Pro Lumiere. TM blends beautifully on the skin, is …Read more

Nov/09/2012

This product really delivers- especially for a $7 drugstore kit. I wanted to write a review on this because of all the wonderful, helpful reviews that made me brave enough to attempt highlighting my own hair. I read just about every review and had my kit stored in my closet for months before i had the courage to try it. This was the first time I have ever highlighted my hair myself without going …Read more
