Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Mascara

11 months ago

Where has this mascara been all of my life?? I love how it separates all of my fine eyelashes and gives them nice definition without being clumpy. It also washes off so easily in the shower and doesn't leave me with raccoon eyes. Previously I was using Benefit Rollerlash, which is much more difficult to remove at night compared to High Impact. Other pros: Very gentle wand bristles, nice …Read more

Moisturizers - Glossier - Priming Moisturizer

11 months ago

I first received a sample of this and really enjoyed the texture and feel so I ordered a full size. Over the next 2 months of use I noticed my skin started having a burning sensation whenever I used any products on it and my forehead felt as if it was peeling even though I have oily skin. I attributed this to change of weather and kept piling on more moisturizers at night. However, one day I …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - Roller Lash Mascara

5.0

Sep/06/2018

This has been my HG mascara for about 2 years now. It's very natural looking, which I love for everyday wear. I have fine lashes and this does a great job in separating all of my lashes with no clumping. It also gives me a bit of length. This is definitely NOT a voluminous mascara so if you go for that look, I would not recommend this one! This is a great mascara for everyday natural …Read more

Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

Sep/06/2018

I fell for the hype and so glad I did! I use the shade blonde and it's the perfect color for my natural blonde hair (perfect neutral blonde). I've seen this compared to Essence Make Me Brow but IMO this product is MUCH better. It sets eyebrow hairs nicely without being crunchy, adds good tint, and a little bit of volume. After using it for 2 months, I was disappointed bc it dried out …Read more

Mascara - Glossier - Lash Slick Mascara

2.0

Sep/06/2018

This mascara was a big disappointment for me. For reference, my HG mascara has been Benefit Rollerlash. I was hoping this would have similar effect for a cheaper price. Unfortunately, this mascara wand doesn't grab and desperate my lashes like Rollerlash and it clumped my lashes (I have very fine lashes). The wand also transferred mascara on my upper eyelid and I found black flakes under …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/25/2017

I got a sample at Sephora with 100 points and I'm so glad I did! I've never tried a Guerlain perfume before so I can't compare (which is probably a good thing). I used to love Flowerbomb and La vie est belle however as I got older, those scents got too overpowering for me. This one has "similar" warm scent but much less complex and doesn't give me a headache. I would …Read more

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest of the Sea Foundation

Oct/11/2017

I love the foundation itself but hate the stupid packaging. I just use the rod to swipe some product on my brush and don't actually use the dropper suction part.

The foundation itself is perfect for my oily skin. The color match is exact (fair neutral). I wore this one all of last winter and loved it. for the summer I wore MUFE Waterblend and was hesitant to repurchase the Tarte …

Liquid - Too Faced - Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/11/2017

This is a good foundation but IMO not as good as Tarte Water foundation. Comfort Matte looks pretty dewy on my skin with light to medium coverage. My skin is naturally on the oilier side and this straight up looks dewy on me (not satin). The lighest shade "Snow" is also way too yellow. Also, I just can't get over the smell. It lingers on my brush which drives me crazy. If …Read more

Foundations - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Water Blend Face & Body Foundation

Sep/18/2016

I've been using this foundation for a couple of weeks now and I"m very surprised to see negative reviews here. I get the sense that the reviewers here didn't understand what purpose/skin type this foundation was intended for. This is a sheer to light coverage foundation and therefore that is what you'll get... light coverage. So if normally wear medium to full coverage …Read more
