Cleansers - KORRES Natural Products - White tea fluid gel cleanser

Jul/14/2009

I have been using this cleanser for a few months, and I'm very happy with it. It's a nice, basic cleanser that removes all my make-up and oil. I used Cetaphil for years, and this is almost like a gentler version of that on my skin. If you are very dry, this will probably be too drying for you. But if you are like me (combo), this is a good basic to check out that has less of the nasty …Read more

Styling Products - Farouk CHI - Chi Silk Infusion Reconstructing Complex

This stuff is AMAZING. I have very fine hair that is intolerant of so many products. Silk Infusion doesn't weigh down my hair at all--it just leaves it softer and, yes, silkier. I apply a couple of drops before I flat iron or when I occasionally blow-dry. I wasn't sure it would work for my hair type, so I bought the smaller $13 bottle to try it out, and it looks like even this bottle …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Sue Devitt - Microaquatic Pro-Marine Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30

I just scored this for a mere $6 from the blissworld sale, but I would pay much more for it. This is a pressed tinted moisturizer that feels great on the skin and gives a beautiful, natural finish. While the coverage is sheer, it's fairly buildable; working up to light coverage doesn't make it look cakey. I can usually wear either Quiet and Still or Tanami in SD foundations; the Tanami …Read more

Lipstick - Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lip Sheer SPF 20 in Fresh Rose

Nov/11/2008

First of all, don't be fooled by the name--this is a pink rose rather than the usual berry rose. It looks like a creamy pink on my lips. This feels amazing on the lips--lots of color, but very moisturizing too. The staying power is average for your typical moisturizing lippie, but it should last you awhile as there is plenty of product in the tube. The next time Lip Sheers go on sale around …Read more

Pressed Powders - Napoleon Perdis - Camera Finish Powder Foundation

I LOVE this powder. This is a matte powder with a bit of coverage that photographs beautifully. Camera Finish really evens out my skintone and doesn't clog my pores or irritiate my skin at all. I also like the sponge that's included--when using it on the go, it really works well. I can even use this under my eyes for a bit of evening out, and it doesn't get crepey. It's a …Read more

Nov/10/2008

I LOVE this foundation. While I tend to use MMU in the warmer months, my skin has been getting drier and I need something more emollient (but still light) for the cooler months. Tarte SO is definitely it. While most bill SO as very similar to a tinted moisturizer, it's more like the light foundation it calls itself to me. Applied with a brush or sponge and topped with powder, you can achieve …Read more

Lipstick - Laura Mercier - Lip Kisses - Nude Beach

Nov/10/2008

I think this is one of my new favorite lippies. This slim lipstick is very moisturizing with no cloying scent. The color is not "nude" on me at all, however; it's more like a rosey YLBB. My only complaint is the lasting power--because it's fairly creamy, it tends to disappear quicker than a regular lipstick. But I love the color and the feel, so I will definitely be buying …Read more

Bronzers - LORAC - Cheek Duo- Hot and Spicy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2008

I love this product because of its shades: the perfect shimmery tan and peach for my PPP skin. The packaging is typical Lorac: nothing exciting, but gets the job done. It comes with a small brush that fits into the lower half of the compact; however, I have only used a fluffy powder brush with it. The one thing I dislike about this bronzer duo: it is toooo pigmented. When using it, I have to blow …Read more

Apr/26/2008

I have been using this foundation for a couple of weeks now, and it is excellent! With a primer, it lasts all day. The coverage is on the light-medium side, but is incredibly buildable. I have been trying to cover up a breakout on my forehead and have been able to put 2-3 layers on with a foundation brush without it looking cakey. It doesn't oxidize on me at all. The finish is very pretty …Read more

Styling Products - Pureology - Root Lift

This root lifter is amazing. Having very fine and straight hair, I have tried tons of volumizers, both cheap and expensive. While most add voume for a couple of hours, my hair tends to go flat by lunch. With this Root Lift, the volume lasts ALL DAY without my hair feeling crunchy. I don't add it to dry hair, but just spray it right at the roots and blow dry. The price is a little …Read more
