Eye Primer - COVERGIRL - Lid Lock Up Eyeshadow Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I've been using Nars Eyeshadow Base for a few years now and nothing has been able to top it. This primer does not either but it comes really close and is the best drugstore primer I've tried so far. With it, my eyeshadows have good longevity, no creasing and color payoff like they do with any high-quality primer. The only reason this doesn't beat the Nars is that it dries down …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

During the Summer I really like using cream because they are waterproof, sweatproof and are easy to apply when when I want a simple look. I saw these Revlon eyeshadows at Ulta and was particularly interested in Espresso, a neutral brown taupe shade that's not really warm but not too grey either, its not completely matte but its not a shimmer either, it gives a really natural shadow to the …Read more

Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex step 3 (Home treatment)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

So my hair isn't chemically treated but it is wavy to curly (2c) and prone to split ends and frizz. I had seen a lot of reviews from curly-haired people saying this was great for enhancing curl patterns similar to a protein treatment but better. Since I started using it, my curl pattern has more springy, more consistent and I have a lot less frizz. I was using it once a week but now I'm …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel

I needed to replace my latest tube of Glossier Boy Brow and I heard about this and picked it up at my local Ulta. I was initially attracted to it because of the color selection as the Boy Brow in brown is a little too light for me but black looks to dark. I got this in dark brown and its a good match. This is great stuff. It holds, defines and adds some thickness just as well if not better than …Read more

Liquid - Sephora Collection - 10 HR Wear Perfection Foundation

5.0

10 months ago

Edit 3/15/19: This has earned its 5th lippie. Its been a couple months now and no breakouts whatsoever from this, no irritation and the color match looks really good on me in photos. I don't always sheer it out anymore, instead I just put it on straight where I need it and really blend it out. As long as my skin is moisturized and primed, it doesn't break up or flake. Between this and …Read more

Mascara - Glossier - Lash Slick Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/25/2018

Before I found this, my HG mascara for the last 4 years has been Urban Decay Perversion. My goal has been thick fluttery, lashes with no clumps that look like hair. I could achieve that with Perversion as long as I was careful, but if I wasn't I would sometimes get a clumpy look. What I'm trying to avoid with mascara is that waxy, 10 lashes stuck together look. When I first heard about …Read more

Eye Shadow - Glossier - Lidstar

4.0

Jun/25/2018

So as a disclaimer, I kind of got these for free. I had bought a new Skin Tint and then Glossier changed their formula and issued me a credit. I can't use the new formula because of the new ingredients so I got 2 Lidstars instead. I got Fawn, the taupe-y purple and Herb the greenish gold. Out of the two, Fawn performs better. its smoother, easier to blend and looks more even. Herb is a …Read more

Sunscreen - EltaMD - UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF44 Tinted

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2018

I give this a 5 because its the best sunscreen I've used so far, but real talk, I hate sunscreen, especially in the dry winters where I live. That said I wear this everyday. Its a big improvement from the Elta MD Physical 41 that I had been using for years before I found this. The Elements is a bit more moisturizing, and has a creamier, more elegant texture. The tint is about the same, no …Read more

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Squalane Oil (Olive Derived)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/21/2018

This review is for Timeless Squalane which is olive derived. When I run out of this I buy it I may go with an ingredient supplier like Making Cosmetics or try the Ordinary's Squalene because its cheaper.
I love this stuff. Pretty much all oils except mineral break me out but I had used some other products in the past like moisturizers and foundations that had squalane that my skin was …

Foundations - Dermablend - flawless creator foundation drops

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2018

Edit 3/16/18: I ended up going back to the 35w (Utla must hate me) because the 30n looked ashy when mixed with suncreen which is what I wanted this for. I also tried using a stronger moisturizer (a light layer of Vaseline after my moisturizing serums before Boot Protect and Perfect Intense as a moisturizing primer/serum) and the tightness was reduced and the finish became more natural than matte …Read more
