Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Carbon Black

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I'm convinced there is probably no perfect, HG mascara for EVERY person, since lash length and thickness often help determine the outcome of the final look. That said, I am a fan of L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black, since it delivers on more than one level. I have long, fairly dark lashes, but since they aren't too thick, they could use some volume. This mascara helps increase …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Russian Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

The search for the perfect red lipstick is over! MAC Russian Red is basically the only red lipstick I wear when in the mood. It's described as a bluish red. To me, it comes off as the ideal, classic mid-toned red that would look good on a variety of skin tones, as it is not too warm, not too cool (I have medium, neutral toned skin). I recently wore it to a wedding, and only felt the need to …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dazzled

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I've been using Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Dazzled regularly, more than the other blushes I own. The color is gorgeous in the pan, but more importantly, on my cheeks. It looks sparkly in the pan, but has a natural sheen when applied. Dazzled is a pink-mauve shade that can be applied with a light hand (just a tap with your blush brush) or built up for a more dramatic look. I wear it often …Read more

Lash Treatments - essence - Volume Booster Lash Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I found essence Volume Boosting Lash Primer at CVS, and I've been using it regularly since. It works just as well as higher end lash primers at a fraction of the cost. I am left with the fanned out, eye-enhancing lash look, without having to put on multiple coats of mascara. I already have long lashes, but this definitely adds additional volume without being too obvious or fake looking. The …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Trader Joe's - Lavender & Chamomile "Cleanliness Next to Godliness" Hand Soap

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2016

I adore Trader Joe's Lavender & Chamomile Next to Godliness hand soap. It has a light, soothing scent and is very gentle on my hands. I enjoy using it because it is non-irritating and leaves my skin feeling soft. Since the ingredients are gentle and mostly natural, it doesn't foam up a ton or dry your skin out like some other soaps. You also get a good amount, and like other Trader …Read more

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter - Champagne Pop

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2016

Becca highlighter in Champagne Pop is my favorite powder highlighter that I own- it looks absolutely gorgeous on and gives me the perfect glow when applied with a very light hand. I also have NARS Albatross highlighter which is also great, but Champagne Pop is more of a luminous golden/champagne sheen where Albatross is a little lighter and more yellowish. I apply the slightest amount onto my …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Japonesque - Solid Brush Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2016

I found the Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser at ULTA, and decided to go with the coconut scented one (Gentle Coconut Cleansing Balm)- it comes in a 2 oz plastic tub and has a very light, pleasant scent that's almost like a cross between coconut and a mildly scented soap. I've used spray brush cleansers before as well as regular old face wash, and while both work decently enough, I wanted …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Dove - Purely Pampering Coconut Milk Beauty Bar with Jasmine Petals Scent Bar Soap

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2016

I have tried a few of the Dove bar soaps over the years-original, exfoliating, cucumber green tea-but the coconut milk and jasmine petals one is hands down my favorite. I find the original beauty bar to have an overpowering, slightly powdery scent, but the coconut milk and jasmine petals is mild and simply divine. It is hard to describe-it smells slightly floral and warm like coconut; just …Read more

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2016

Finally, a hair mask that works well for my hair! I have thick, wavy hair that needs is in occasional need of extra moisture. The problem is that some conditioners/hair masks don't condition my hair enough, while others overdo it. This is not at all the case with Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque. I found this at Ulta, and what a gem it is. It smells …Read more

Styling Products - Shea Moisture - Super Fruit Multivitamin Soft Curl Gel-Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2016

I am pleasantly surprised by how effective Shea Moisture Super Fruit Multivitamin Soft Curl Gel-Cream has been for my hair. I even got my sister and cousin hooked on it after they tried it out as well. I bought it at Ulta, after looking for a curling product that would give me soft, manageable curls. I was drawn to the brand, since ingredients are mostly natural and would not damage my hair. But …Read more
