Lip Gloss - bareMinerals - GEN NUDE Buttercream Lip Gloss

These smell awful- exactly like playdough. I received two shades, Sugar and Tantalize, in separate "value packs" and I'm so glad I did not buy them individually because they are rank. I much prefer mint, vanilla, or odorless smells but this is plasticy playdough. Smell a tester before you buy because you may regret it otherwise. The color payoff is good and the tube/applicator is …Read more

Shampoo - Hask - Blue Chamomile & Argan Oil Blonde Care Shampoo

2.0

21 days ago

I usually use the GVP version of Shimmer Lights from Sally's Beauty, but this was cheaper and I like other Hask products so I thought I'd give it a go. Unlike other toning shampoos I've tried, this does not lather with blue or purple suds- they were almost completely white. It also lathered so much, oh my goodness. I haven't had a shampoo lather this much. I didn't think …Read more

Hair Treatments - Not Your Mother's - Activated Bamboo Charcoal & Purple Moonstone Restore & Reclaim Scalp Scrub

I am growing my hair out from a pixie cut (it's at awkward bob length now) and I told the sales associate that I wanted something that would help protect my hair as it grows. She suggested a scalp scrub to help promote growth and led me to this product. This product is intended to remove build up from dry shampoo and other hair products and gently exfoliate the scalp. It sounded really nice …Read more

Highlighters - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer

5.0

I have dry skin, so any base product that helps mend or disguise it without emphasizing dry patches (or creating them) is baseline "OK" in my book. Glotion steps it up by delivering on a soft, luminous glow if worn alone. Worn with foundation, it makes it look like more "natural glowy" skin. I like to mix it with liquid foundations (currently L'Oreal true match) because …Read more

Lip Gloss - ColourPop - Ultra Glossy Lip (All Colors)

I own several of these from Ulta, and I think they're great. The glossiness, the shimmer, the color, are all on point. They lean more sheer than opaque (at least the ones from Ulta). Not super tacky. Decent wear time. Now let's talk about the price. It seems really nice, until I looked at the amount of product in the tube. 0.11oz for $6, and I go through the tube quickly. This …Read more

Lip Gloss - Burt's Bees - Lip Shine

I bought this in Whisper, which wears more like a clear gloss than a light pink gloss. I wanted a faint hint of color, and this did not deliver. The smell is also sickeningly sweet. A darker color might be more redeeming, but Whisper is a bust.

Lip Gloss - Pacifica - Enlightened Lip Gloss

I have this in Opal and it's a beautiful natural looking color. Shimmery, peachy pink. I LOVE how it looks on my lips. It feels nourishing and looks glossy. But, it smells like playdough. I love that Pacifica is "natural" and vegan, but this is pretty rank to be right under my nose. Fortunately the smell isn't very noticeable after a few minutes. It has a bit of a funky taste …Read more

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

This is holy grail status for me. I have dry skin, eczema, acne, use retin a cream, etc. It's tough to find face coverage that doesn't make my skin look absolutely awful. Perfect Cover #13 evens out the redness in my skin, but the BEST part is that my skin actually looks supple and hydrated when I use this. Dry patches? Eczema? Nope- It just looks dreamy and dewy. The coverage …Read more

Foundations - Morphe - Fluidity Full-Coverage Foundation

1.0

I use retain-a cream, have acne, eczema, and as you can imagine from that description - my skin is pretty dry. My skin looks great and hydrated under loose powder foundation, but I wanted to try a liquid. In comes Morphe.

Pros: warm, neutral, and cool tones in a wide color selection. Squeeze tube.

Cons: I didn't have visible dry patches before I put this on, but I did …
