Brows - REVLON - ColorStay Brow Mousse

May/04/2018

I purchased the Revlon ColorStay Brow Mousse in Dark Brown. I have fuller brows, with some white hairs starting to come in. I also have trichotillomania, an obsessive-compulsive disorder that causes me to pull out my hair--my brows are no exception. I often have sparse areas in my brows as a result.

Pros:
-Easy to use; just turn/click the bottom of the tube to push the …

Highlighters - theBalm Cosmetics - Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

I find this product incredibly versatile. It's a lovely neutral champagne powder with a superfine fine, dense shimmer. It works well layered over a beige eyeshadow for some interest, or in the inner corners of my eyes as a highlight, or applied with a finger to the center of my eyelid for a different effect, or the center of the lips after applying lip product for a pretty look... I have …Read more

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

Dec/20/2017

I like using this product as a daily concealer for my undereye circles. It's easy to use, easy to apply, and it's not super-coverage, so I have a more "naturally awake" look. Would I use it for an event or a date night? No. That's a job for Tarte Shape Tape. For daily use, though, it's a quick concealer that works.

The reason for the four stars is …

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion Anti-Aging

Dec/20/2017

I'm not sure why this isn't rated higher. I love UD Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer. It's my HG primer. The formula is creamy and easy to use, it sets sheer, and it keeps my eyeshadow looking pristine throughout the day. What I don't like is the packaging: the squeeze tube with the wand is ridiculous and wastes product. I much prefer the plain squeeze tube with the pointed …Read more

Lip Gloss - Soap & Glory - Pillow Plump

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2017

I have ADHD and some sensory processing challenges. There are times when I need a little "boost" in the sensory department to help me with focus and ease anxiety. Oddly enough, I've found that lip plumping glosses can give me the sensory input I need. Soap & Glory Pillow Plump is one of the more affordable, longer-lasting glosses I've found. I don't know if it …Read more

Sunscreen - Bioré - UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++

Dec/20/2017

With my oily skin, this is a great sunblock for summer, as it has a small amount of alcohol to help it set to a matte finish. One of the issues I have is sunblocks breaking up on my skin as the day goes and melting into my eyes; I've yet to experience this using this phenomenon using this product. I did find, however, that using it during the drier part of the year (where I live, October …Read more

This review is for Shiseido Sanka Anti-Aging SPF 50+++:

Pros:
-Very moisturizing
-Sets clear
-Squeeze packaging with small nozzle is easy to use and helps prevent product waste.

Cons:
-A little pricey; I purchase a 2-pack on Amazon for around $18US with free Prime shipping.
-Very moisturizing, so not great for summer unless you have super-dry …

Lip Liners - RIMMEL - Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner

1.0

Aug/10/2017

I used to love Rimmel Exaggerate lip liners. I loved their soft texture, how they stayed in place for me, and their slanted tip made it easy to line my lips so they looked more symmetrical.

I'm not sure what happened. I recently purchased several and they STINK SO BADLY they're unusable. Every color I purchased smelled rancid. I had to throw them all away. Money …

BB Cream - Tarte Cosmetics - BB Tinted Treatment Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Aug/10/2017

I purchased this product on sale in the color "light". My usual shade in Tarte foundations is Light Neutral. My skin is oily, with some deep smile lines and large pores (more like craters) in my T-zone. I also have fine wrinkles on my chin and around my lips (don't smoke, kids. Seriously.).

Pros:
1) Extends the protection of my SPF 50 sunblock.

2) …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Stiletto Waterproof Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2017

I started using this because it was in my "to try" stash once my CG LashBlast WP dried out.

Pros:
1) Adds definite length to my lashes! They're already fairly long but when I use this they just about touch my eyebrows!

2) Thin formula

3) Long, tapering brush with fairly stiff bristles makes it easy to wipe off excess product and pinpoint …
