Masks - SK-II - Facial Treatment Mask

Jun/10/2016

This mask did nothing for me. The mask was closer to cardboard than cotton, it was so stiff and difficult to fit on my face. The Pitera essence was actually pretty gross -- I spread a thin layer of the leftover essence on my neck, decolletage, and shoulders, and instead of sinking into my skin, it sat on the surface and pilled up wherever I touched my skin. Same thing with my face after I took …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Revive - Intensite Volumizing Serum

Aug/12/2014

I received a sample in my Bergdorf Goodman Glossybox, and this stuff is amazing. I had crepey skin under my eyes at the age of 26 despite being a religious user of eye serum (Dior), eye cream and sunscreen, and this has made the crepey-ness vanish. The Glossybox sample came in a pump bottle similar to the full-size bottle, and the pump sometimes dispenses more than I need for my eyes, which is …Read more

THE. WORST. LINER. EVER.

I've tried a lot of different liners -- liquid, gel, pencil and kajal. This is far and away the worst one I have ever tried. The click-up pen format is bad, I either couldn't get enough product out (in which case I had to keep stopping my application and clicking the pen to get more out) or too much (in which case it clumped horribly and made a mess …

Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/15/2013

I don't think there is any difference between using this eye cream plus moisturizer, or just using moisturizer on its own. It doesn't really do anything it claims - specifically in my case, brightening dark circles. I also find that the original formulation is greasier than the All About Eyes Rich version, which makes no sense to me. Anyway, my dark circles were still present after a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - CLINIQUE - Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/15/2013

I have been using this product since 2009, and have found that it's great for discoloration resulting from traumatic hyperpigmentation (in my case, marks left behind from pimples), but not at all effective for age or sun spots. I'm in my mid-20s with a medium-dark complexion (MAC NC40/42). I don't get pimples frequently, but when I do, they nearly always leave behind noticeable …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Shine 83 Scenario

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/10/2013

A sheer, glossy, and natural brown-red. It's perfect for a light daytime look for those with warm tan skin, like myself. On people with lighter skin, it may be a bit more dramatic and more suitable for a nighttime look. The staying power isn't the greatest - I need to touch up after eating and drinking, and every couple hours in any case. I didn't deduct a lippie for the lack …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Crushed Cherry 176

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/10/2013

My new favorite Glossimer! It looks intimidatingly dark in the tube, but once applied, it's a lovely dark blue-red shade that works surprisingly well with my warm-toned complexion (which generally looks sallow against blue-reds). The name is on point - the color looks exactly like lips stained with cherry juice, albeit deeper and shinier. There is no hint of sparkle in the gloss, which I …Read more

Concealers - Laura Mercier - Secret Camouflage

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/02/2013

When I bought this, I liked the idea that I could use the compact year-round and adjust the shade by mixing the dark and light concealers to get a perfect match for my summer and winter skin tones. This is still a good idea in theory (hence the reason I gave this product two lippies instead of one) but I absolutely loathe the formulation. Regardless of whether I apply it with my fingers, with a …Read more

Mascara - Yves Saint Laurent - Babydoll Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/02/2013

This blows the (IMO) overrated Diorshow out of the water. I got this as a sample and waffled about purchasing the full size, since normally I find drugstore mascaras to be equally as good and far cheaper than fancy ones, and much easier to replace when they go bad after a few weeks. However, when I found myself constantly reaching for my sample size of Babydoll both in the AM (one coat) and PM …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Allure 98, Coromandel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/02/2013

The color is stunning and looks good on a variety of skin tones. I like it on myself (tan skin with warm undertones, black hair, and brown eyes). I also loaned it to a friend with light skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes, and it looked nice on her as well. It's an orange-red that definitely pulls warm, so I don't think it would work as well for those with cool undertones. I'm not …Read more
