Masks - Dermalogica - MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2017

I gave up a lot of my Dermalogica products in the past year after switching over to La Roche Posay, but this masque stays with me forever. I call it my "Disco Mask". It's too harsh for my sensitive skin if I use it on a regular basis, but about once a month I go out dancing and drinking till the wee hours of the night with my BFF, and when I wake up the next day, I look every bit …Read more

Powder - REVLON - ColorStay Pressed powder

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2017

Chalk city for me. I looked like I was getting ready for a funeral after I put this on - my own funeral. I'm admittedly pale, but this powder made me look ghastly and flat, and magnified the pores in my T-zone to scientific levels. I put it on one time, gasped in the mirror, and then drove it back to Walgreens to return it. Maybe they do better with deeper shades, but the light ones are …Read more

Hair Treatments - It's a 10 - Silk Express Miracle silk leavin-in

Jan/05/2017

I have weird hair. It's both super fine, and super puffy in the humidity where I live. I want volume, but I don't want puffy baby chick hair that blows around like loose spiderwebs. It's annoying.

I got the It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product with Silk as a sample from Ulta. I was STUNNED at what it did for my hair. Adds body without puff, makes my hair silky …

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Shine Killer

Jan/05/2017

I'll start with the end result and work back from there.

I go to Ulta to return the NYX Shine Killer primer that I had purchased the week before. The clerk asked, "Why are you returning this product?" I respond, "Because it should be called Shine Adder, not Shine Killer." She said I wasn't the first person who'd told her, in not so many words …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Foreo - Luna

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2016

I've been using for Luna for about ten days, and the changes in my skin are just awesome. I have super oily and sensitive skin, large pores in my T-zone that are prone to plugging up, fine lines (I'm 40) and rosacea on top of all that. I spent a couple months reading every review I could find on the Luna, because frankly, it's expensive. When Nordstrom had their Black Friday …Read more

Stick - Bobbi Brown - Skin Foundation Stick

3.0

Dec/02/2016

I wanted to love this foundation stick SO MUCH, but alas, as many have mentioned below, it's just not made for us oily folks. It went on beautifully, blended like a dream with my Bobbi Brown flat foundation brush, and then two hours later, total oil slick. I looked like I had actually rubbed baby oil all over my face, it was that oily. I played around with it, tried different primers, no …Read more

Pressed Powders - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Set Smooth Pressed Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2016

Finally a powder that doesn't break me out and controls shine! Any time I would try a new powder, no matter if cheap or fancy, I would think it was great, and then 3-4 days later I would wake up to find a crop of new blackheads. Big ones. Like the kind you can see in the mirror from five feet away. I don't know what was causing it, but I've been using this powder for about six …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Tinted Brow Mascara

5.0

Dec/02/2016

Hands down, best brow product I have ever used. My eyebrows are blonde, but sparse, so the gel clings to the hairs and fills them in nicely without looking harsh at all. Nobody knows that I use it, it's that seamless. NYX products are so affordable, it's a no-brainer for me. I'd buy this any day of the week.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Discovery Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2016

Totally my HG mascara. I have tiny little blonde eyelashes that are nearly invisible, and the tiny brush manages to find every little lash and quadruple it in volume and length. It's so much easier to get to the interior lashes in particular. When I wear it on my bottom lashes, I'm always shocked to see how many lashes I actually have down there! Comes off super easy with micellar …Read more

Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - Gel Eyeliner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2016

Such a fantastic product. I wish it weren't so expensive because I plan on using it for the rest of my life! I have hooded, super oily lids, and even waterproof eyeliners would leave me a fairly smudgy mess by the end of the day, but when I use the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner, it stays absolutely put until I remove it with micellar water. I usually wear my makeup for about 14-16 hours of the …Read more
