Highlighters - Jane Cosmetics - Multi-Colored Cheek Powder Illuminating Powder

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2015

This is one of the less shimmery ones that I've used, and honestly I didn't notice much of a difference when I wore it. Also, it contains talc (boo) and I have discovered that I am sensitive to talc.

For the price point, this is good, I guess. But for Christmas I got a new highlighter from 100% Pure and it surpasses the Jane highlighter, by far. 100% Pure is of course more …

Bronzers - Jane Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder in Inspire/Soft

This is an awesome bronzer for fair skin! Great pigmentation and can be gradually built up. But something in this unfortunately made my skin itch...I am not sure what. I have since switched to Physicians Formula bronzer in light and I've had no problems.

I used this blush for about a year until I realized that I am sensitive to talc, and behold, this contains talc.

I usually opt for more pink-y blushes but wanted to try a more neutral blush, especially for the fall. I do like this color a lot, as it is subtle but buildable. The overall formula is long-lasting and applies very smoothly. I like that it is a pink/brown neutral, rather …

Eye Primer - Too Faced - Shadow Insurance - Champagne

4.0

Jan/18/2015

This primer is a beautiful, neutral color. I would often wear it alone as a cream shadow and it was delicate and brightening. My eyeshadow never creased while wearing this, and the primer definitely amped up the pigmentation of my powder shadow.

I like that it comes in a tube as this is a hygienic means of packaging.

I probably wouldn't purchase again, however, because …

BB Cream - Alba Botanica - Even Advanced CC Cream

Jan/18/2015

This review is for the Alba Even Advanced CC Cream in fair to light.

I used this CC cream for a few months until I developed a suspicion that there was talc in it, since my skin was itching every day. Turns out I was right, and I was naive to trust that a natural brand like Alba wouldn't have talc in any of their products.

I have very fair, cool skin and the color was …

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara

2.0

Jan/18/2015

This mascara is NOT a true tubing mascara. I found it impossible to get every bit off each night, as I would wake up each morning to find irritating leftover mascara specs on my eyes. For the past few months I have been dealing with non-bacterial, mechanically induced conjunctivitis (my eyes essentially developed an allergy to silicone hydrogel contact lenses) and the last thing I need is chronic …Read more

Eyeliner - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Eyeliner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/03/2014

I have this in Coffee. It's a pretty, rich brown and glides on smoother than any other liner I've ever tried. But it smudges a lot and within little time (like an hour or two). I've tried applying another liner on top to try to set it, but it unfortunately did not avert any smudging. It's too bad that it's not longwearing because the ingredients are very clean and the …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Lash Injection

This mascara is mediocre. It is a tubing formula (as advertised) and removes easily. It does not smudge, however, it does flake. I've never had such flaking issues with a mascara before. If, like me, you have very long, fine lashes and are looking more for volume than length, then this mascara is NOT for you.

I have tried three more mid/high-end tubing mascaras since tossing Too …

Mascara - Cargo Cosmetics - Better-Than-Waterproof Black

Nov/13/2014

I had really high hopes for this mascara, but unfortunately they weren't all fulfilled. I liked that it was a tubing mascara and had a pretty good list of ingredients (free of parabens and phenoxyethanol). It does not smudge but It is also very difficult to remove--this does not remove like most tubing mascaras, and even using jojoba oil I had a hard time getting everything off at night. So …Read more
