Dec/14/2016

I have worn this foundation for a couple of years.

Lately, I have had to buy drugstore foundation because my annual income has changed.

I was never WOWED by this foundation

UNTIL

I bought L'oreal Infallible and Wet N Wild Coverall.

Both L'oreal and Wet N Wild made my pores INSANELY HUGE AND NOTICEABLE.

I have not been …

Dec/01/2016

The last review was in 2015 so I hope this is still available.

Holy cow this is good! After I cleanse, this toner picks up SO MUCH leftever makeup that my Eve Lom Cleanser missed.... the thing is, after I use Eve Lom I use a Garnier Micellar Water, and the cotton pad from that showed nothing. Then I use this Boots Toner and the pad is literally filthy, so I now use this toner as a …

Palettes - Urban Decay - Vice 3

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2014

Overall I am disappointed in this palette. I am a very tactical person, and the feel of things is important to me. I felt like the packaging was thinner, lighter and just not as luxurious feeling as it should have been at this price point. I'm a sucker for Chanel, Tom Ford, Guerlain etc. because they just feel nice, and they feel like they cost money and are quality products. This Vice 3 …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Synthetic Buffing Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2014

I don't know why, but for some reason my pores are large and when I put on foundation, whether it be liquid or powder, my pores look huge and both types of makeup get trapped in pores and magnify them. I've never had this problem before so I am puzzled and upset that my makeup is not looking good.

I have only used this brush once, as I bought it yesterday, but this brush …

Cleansers - Boots - No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water Normal/Oily

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/30/2013

I'm very happy with this cleanser. I do use waterproof eye makeup, so I use a double action eye makeup remover for that, and then use this cleansing water all over my face and eyes afterwards. It removes my face makeup, and leaves a silkyish feeling behind. At least it doesn't leave my face feeling taut and dried out. This is the first cleansing water I have used, so I can't …Read more

Toners - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Sea Mineral Toner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/13/2013

I like this toner. The price is great, and the toner itself feels fairly decent . Not drying or harsh like many toners on me feel like. I don't really use it as an extension of my cleanser to wipe away what was left after removing my makeup. I just happen to like sea minerals, and I use this before my retin-a and moisturizer. I wish it was a little more moisturizing, maybe with a bit of …Read more

Moisturizers - Estée Lauder - Swiss Performing Extract

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2012

I gave this a 5 star rating because it never fails to moisturize my dry winter skin. We have a wood burning stove that dries my skin and makes me stay flaky all winter, but this really helps to combat the flakes and does it's job well. This is heavily fragranced, so if you are sensitive to strongly scented products this would bother you. I do like the nice heavy glass bottle....just feels …Read more

Liquid - Smashbox - Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/08/2011

I've been wearing this for 4 days now, and I'm really pleased. I work outside, so I usually only wear mineral powder makeup because liquid makeup really shows up outside. This gives me great coverage, looks like my skin but better, and stays on all day. I don't know if I'll be able to wear this in the summer when it's hot and I'm constantly sweating (or glowing as …Read more

Cleansers - Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2011

Great cleansing pads. The pads are very thick, and feel good...they are slightly textured, so you get some scrubbing but the feeling is not too abrasive. The pads are insanely wet and it really suds up. Removes all of my makeup. I do use a toner afterwards, and the cotton pad with the toner doesn't pick up alot of left over makeup or dirt. It's almost white. Does not leave me …Read more
