Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Skin Aqua - UV Super Moisture Milk SPF50+PA++++

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I had a super-weird experience with this sunscreen. I was using Biore Watery Gel, which I liked, but heard the buzz that this was more moisturizing so I decided to try it out. It's a thin-consistency, white liquid, easy to apply and absorbs quickly. And yes - I felt it was more moisturizing than your typical Asian sunscreen. I thought I had found my new HG.

A bit later, I started …

Moisturizers - Weleda - Skin Food

In a few short weeks, this stuff seems to have saved my skin.

I'm early 30's and never had problem skin prior to the last 6-8 months or so. I made the mistake of changing up a few items in my skincare routine - I don't usually have reactive skin so I wasn't too worried. HUGE MISTAKE. After figuring out the culprit(s), my skin started to improve but had awful …

Cleansers - Trader Joe's - Facial Cleansing Oil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I love DHC but thought I'd give this a go. I do love Trader Joe's and have had a generally good experience with their products. This, unfortunately, is one of the duds for me. My general complaints:
1. The consistency is too thin
2. It's heavily scented
3. It stings the heck out of my eyes, and seems to do so even after I have rinsed
4. It doesn't remove …

Scrubs - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Gentle Peeling Exfoliant

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I was skeptical - so many products that claim to slough off dead skin don't do anything for me. I don't know if it's a gimmick but I can feel it. It's so gross and satisfying, almost like peeling dried Elmer's Glue off your hand. It can have a bit of a tingling sensation, and definitely keep it away from your mouth and eyes. I use a few pumps, slather it on, let it sit …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre Lipstick - Capricious

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I find myself coming back to MAC these days, as I seemed to have forgotten that they have some solid products buried underneath their constant mediocre new collections. One such product are their Lustre lipsticks, which are an old favorite. In searching for a new everyday lipstick this fall, I accidentally stumbled across this shade. It's neutral, rosy, plummy, nude-ish, a MLBB shade for me …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2017

I wish I could give this a 4.5, but I rounded up because I really do like it more than most other concealers that I've tried. It's not perfect, but it's really, really good.

My skin: fair, neutral, leans dry/dehydrated. Need concealer primarily for covering undereye darkness and redness and broken capillaries around my nose, and of course the occasional zit. I take NW …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2016

I'm 31, and I've never found a liquid foundation that I liked and felt I could wear everyday. I've never liked a liquid foundation before except for Missha Perfect Cover BB - but it just doesn't last at all on me. While I like the ease of powder foundation, I feel like I'm getting to the age where they just suck the life out of my skin. This, I find, gives a sheer, dewy …Read more

Treatments (Face) - COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2016

I love this stuff. Other BHAs I have tried include red Stridex and Paula's Choice. My nose is the problem area, as with many, for blackheads and sebum plugs, though primarily sebum plugs were making my nose pores look ... unattractive. Scrubs and nose strips would help but were quite harsh. The Stridex and PC seemed to do nothing - no changes long term. I bought this on a whim after seeing …Read more

Palettes - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest Of The Sea

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2016

I heard through the grapevine (MUA) that this palette carried a new formulation of Tarte's shadows, and I was intrigued to add a neutral palette to my collection.

My main/only gripe, and the primary reason for 3 lippies, is the strange formulation of these shadows. They're very... moist (??), and seem to be clumpy as you wear away at them. What I mean by this is that as you …

Concealers - Kat Von D - Lock-It Concealer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2016

I purchased this in Light 18, the second lightest shade. This shade would be ever-so-slightly dark for my whole face, but it's got a bit of a yellow tone to it and I use it to cancel out the redness around my nose and under my eyes - which is where I need concealer in the first place. It's a good match for those areas. This concealer was separated when I bought it - very liquidy - but I …Read more
