Toners - Mario Badescu - Glycolic Acid Toner

I've been using this product for several years and I like the results. It's my nighttime toner, I use it after I thoroughly clean my face and before serums and moisturizer. Really helps with flaky patches and I believe it makes my skin more receptive to the products I apply afterward. My skin is dry, aging and acne prone.

Fragrances - Philosophy - Amazing Grace Ballet Rose

Aug/05/2018

This is such a pretty little perfume! Others have named the notes, so I'll just add my two cents: I love rose in perfumes - my username is rosarita, after all - and my taste generally runs toward dark, gothic rose perfumes, the darker and richer the better. Well, Ballet Rose is nothing like that, it's light and fresh and just plain pretty, pink and refreshing. Since I have a lot of …Read more

Brows - Tarte Cosmetics - Arch Architect Brow Pencil Gel

Aug/05/2018

I love this product and I'm surprised there's no reviews for it yet! The Tarte Arch Architect Brow Pencil Gel is yes, a mouthful, but a great all in one brow product with a pencil on one end and a clear setting gel at the other end, a pretty gold tube. The pencil is wax based and has a retractable diamond shaped point, same shape as Benefit Goof Proof but with a creamier texture that I …Read more

This is the best concealer I have found and I have tried a lot of concealers. I have dry, aging skin with redness, scarring, big pores, wrinkles, you name it. I bought this concealer to use under MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation and it's perfect. Nice clean pump packaging too, I put one pump on the back of my hand and dab it on with my fingers usually, sometimes I use a small concealer …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

Aug/05/2018

I color matched myself for this purchase since my local Ulta stores don't carry MAC and there's no MAC store in my area. I have dry aging skin and I like the quick convenience of a powder foundation, especially in the summer. I picked NW34 which is great for now when my skin is a bit tan although it might be too deep for winter, but I generally need a creamy foundation then anyway. I …Read more

Foundations - IT Cosmetics - Confidence In A Compact SPF 50 Solid Serum Foundation

Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2018

I like different foundation finishes and this cream formula is unique in my collection. The compact is well designed with a double lid system to keep it from drying out. Took a lot of trial and error to figure out how to apply since the texture is both creamy and stiff - I tried different brushes and sponges and primers but it still was streaky and hard to blend. What works for me is the flat …Read more

I bought this for cheap at Ulta on sale and it's a very nice setting powder. It's also nothing special. I got the cool beige and I was hoping for some additional coverage over foundation, which this kind of provides, but I don't see that's it's any better than, say, It Cosmetics Bye bye Pores which is what I was already using. I'll definitely use it up but I prefer …Read more

Moisturizers - First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Cream

Apr/22/2018

This wears well under makeup as an everyday moisturizer but I really like it for other skin concerns, like some mild excema patches. I had sun poisoning for the first time on a recent vacation and tried hydrocortisone cream, aloe vera gel and baking soda baths (it was itchy and red and miserable) and First Aid cream gave me the most relief. It's kind of pricey compared to other good …Read more

Foundations - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Color-Correcting Cream

Oct/22/2017

This is really a redness concealer and not a foundation, it has a light cast that wouldn't be flattering worn alone, imo. I use this over primer and under foundation. My skin is a mess, old acne scars, sun damage and lots of blotchy redness and this product is truly a game changer. You don't need much, I dot it on reddest areas and buff it in with a small flat head brush and it really …Read more
