Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Control Freak Brow Gel

1.0
Created with Sketch.

27 days ago

I tried using this many times, but it did absolutely nothing. My brows are thin so I have to build them up with NYX micro brow, but the hairs always fall downward in the opposite direction of the pencil.
I needed something to keep the hairs in place; an this was no better then running a wet spoolie thru my brows. The tube and the wand are also ridiculously big for brow use.

Toners - Alba Botanica - Hawaiian Hibiscus Facial Toner

2.0

6 months ago

I found this on amazon, and the amazon ingredient list shows only beneficial, skin loving ingredients (arnica, calendula, cucumber, allantoin, hibiscus flower, witch hazel, honeysuckle, etc).
When it arrived, the ingredient list on the bottle was a different story: Excluding water, the 3rd ingredient is lemon peel oil, then orange peel oil, & lavender oil, all skin sensitizers and …

Lips - L'Oreal Paris - Glossy Balm (all colours)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2018

Out of a collection of glosses and lipsticks, this is the lip product I reach for again and again. And again.
It's quick, it's easy, and very wearable with any makeup look.
I have this in 200 Lovely Mocha - a beautiful pinky mauve, MLBB.
The pencil shape allows for more precise application, even when you're in a hurry.
And it's exactly what it says it is: …

Lips - REVLON - Kiss Plumping Lip Creme

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2018

The plumping claim pulled me in (even though I should know better). While these don't plump any more than your average gloss or liquid lip, I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up Barely Blush (MLBB) & Almond Suede (a brownish pink).
The color is opaque, but with a high shine. They're very glossy, but not at all sticky or heavy.
It has a lot of slip, almost too much (more …

Brows - REVLON - Colorstay Mousse

Apr/08/2018

This is awful. I can usually get some use out of just about any brow product, which is why I snapped this one up.
Not only is this gloppy and an absolute mess to apply (I tried using a separate spoolie based on the review below, but even that doesn't help).

Twisting the base of the stick pushes the product out into a built in spoolie with plastic bristles. The problem: it …

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/03/2018

I have this in soft brown; a very natural color (pale, dark blonde hair with highlights).
I don't get the applicator, a small spoolie would allow you to see what you're doing much better.
But if you scrape off excess product, this applies well and defines and plumps the brows well.
It tends to clump, but a fresh spoolie will solve that.

But by afternoon, the …

Primer/ Corrector - wet n wild - Photofocus Natural Finish Setting Spray

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2018

I was so excited to try this after reading the reviews here.
I only have two setting sprays to compare to: e.l.f. and NYX (dewy finish). To be honest, I've never noticed either spray help my makeup stay on any longer than without it, but I like to think that it softens the look of my makeup and helps my skin look moisturized.
I wonder if they changed the formula for this spray …

Eyeliner - L.A. Girl - Line Art Matte Eyeliner

5.0

Jan/10/2018

My local CVS was out of my favorite liquid liner (Physician's Formula Lash Booster in the sleek silver tube), I saw this got one good MUA review and bought it.
So far, it allows for good control, a precise thin line, and even application. I can't tell what the tip is made of, it's not a brush tip, maybe felt? But it is just the right balance of flexibility and strength to draw …

Brows - RIMMEL - Brow Shake Filling Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2018

I wanted to love this, because it's a good brow product; it's pigmented, applies easily and the applicator is thin enough that you can be fairly precise. There is some fall out because it's a powder, but that is easily cleaned up.
But it just wasn't for me, and I returned this.
I purchased the shade medium brown, and it was way too dark for me. I'm ash blonde …

Treatments (Face) - GLAMGLOW - Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2017

i picked up a sample size of this along with the powermud dual cleanse. First, I didn't feel much of a tingle, maybe only that of a mild glycolic peel. Which is good, because at least I didn't experience any burning.
But this mask is just overkill: the consistency was thick and lumpy, with all the granules and pieces of seaweed or tea leaves or whatever they are.
It …
