Apr/24/2016

PROS: First, a helpful tip, if you have acne and/or oily skin, you want to look at a foundation that is not a creamy pancake makeup. This is quite kind to wrinkles. I use a domed, firm foundation brush and push this into pores and then a big and softer blender brush to blend. OR I use a slighly damp beauty blender for a more natural application, but also pushing into pores. (I leave the …Read more

PROS: This is very kind to wrinkles. I use a domed, firm foundation brush and push this into pores and then a big and softer blender brush to blend. OR I use a slighly damp beauty blender for a more natural application, but also pushing into pores.

I have large pores that are usually holding pools for foundation, and not so with this one. I only have to check about every three …

Liquid - Giorgio Armani - Luminous Silk Foundation

Aug/25/2015

PROS: I like the very subtle glow it gives. Has enough yellow-based shades, at least in the lighter shades. Great in my pores. Pretty good in my wrinkles.


CONS: The price. This sits on top of the skin and looks obvious, even with trying to apply lightly and matching my skin well. And even applying lightly, I can't get a more natural look when I want that. I can't …

Moisturizers - JASÖN - 5000 I.U. Vitamin E Revitalizing Moisturizing Creme

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2015

PROS: I adore this cream for night because it is very moisturizing, while not being greasy. There are also no cones, which will clog me (give me comodones). The vitamins e is not the only benefit; simple but very moisturizing cream with no cones is a winner in my book. (The 25000 version now has cones. ) Very inexpensive.


CONS: Started to burn a bit on my very sensitive …

Styling Products - Dove - Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/18/2015

PROS: I LOVE this product for my very fine, dry-ends, weak-curls hair. Thank you so much to those who had taken the time to post reviews for this. I probably would not have tried it, otherwise. This activates my very weak curls, and it leaves no crunch. (If any does remain after air drying, I can run my fingers through, and the crunch is gone, WITHOUT destroying the curl or making the ends …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Conair - Illumina (Retro) Lighted Makeup Mirror (rectangular, not oval)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/29/2015

PROS: Having 4 levels of lighting is good. The brightest light is definitely light enough (not all Conair mirrors have a bright enough high setting.) Magnification on the other side. Price is half the price of the oval-shaped ones. Some have 2 side mirrors too.


CONS: After about 2 years, I had to replace a couple of bulbs. (I would purchase an extra set, of 4 10-watt …

Mar/29/2015

PROS: Having 3 levels of lighting is good(but see cons). Good height on the mirror. Strong magnificationon the other side.


CONS: The highest level of lighting is very low, more like an "evening" level of lighting. I was very disappointed in it and returned it immediately. Also, the price seems exorbitant for a makeup mirror.


ALTERNATES: I …

Mar/26/2015

PROS: Light and silky consistency for how moisturizing it is. Great consistency for slapping it on real quick after the shower. The price is right. Fragrance free. NEVER bothers my very sensitive skin. This is keeps my usually dry heels nice.(see app. tips below) I would think it would work great for things like eczema or very dry skin that needs sort of a barrier, along with …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - DUO - Eyelash Adhesive

5.0

Mar/21/2015

PROS: Easily found at drugstore and beauty supply. I much prefer the black so that I know it isn't showing/shining.


CONS: None for me, especially compared to the other ones out there.


APPLICATION TIPS: I actually use a very skinny, quality paintbrush from Blick or Michaels (art supply stores) and apply the glue to right at the base of my lashes/the skin …
