Concealers - L.A. Girl - PRO Conceal HD Concealer

Feb/22/2015

I am one of many who bought this product thinking that it would be a dupe for the MAC Prolongwear Concealer, which I adore. Sadly, I would have to say that it is not.

Without further comparing it to MAC's PLWC, here's the breakdown:

Coverage: Medium, because it didn't do much for covering my red blemishes.
Longevity: Just okay.
Color: Too orange …

Scrubs - Bioré - Pore Unclogging Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2014

I have used this product for so many years now, and I will remain loyal to it. But that doesn't mean that it is free of criticisms. I must admit that I do prefer the original formula and wish they would bring it back, but I won't go much into that because there's not much that can be done at this point.

I have incredibly oily skin with large pores that are prone to …

Moisturizers - The Body Shop - Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion SPF 15

Nov/25/2014

I have extremely oily skin, and no product has ever been able to control my oil all day. This product is no exception, but considering I had some realistic expectations, it's not that big of a deal. I do enjoy and use face lotion, however, because washing my face does tend to make my skin feel stripped of moisture. That feeling does not need to be amended with a moisturizer, but I enjoy a …Read more

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

Nov/25/2014

I'm almost done with my first bottle and it has lasted me for a few months now. I use it almost everyday, mainly to take off my eye makeup. I have used it to take off my face makeup on a few occasions, and I must admit that it does a better job than the typical drugstore makeup wipes I use.

When it comes to eyeliners and mascaras, I only use waterproof because I have incredibly …

Eye Primer - Palladio Beauty - Herbal Eyeshadow Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2014

I heard this primer was a dupe for Urban Decay's Primer Potion and that Palladio and Urban Decay are under the umbrella of the same company. And being someone who has extremely oily eyelids who does enjoy and have gone through several tubes of UD's Primer Potion, I just had to give this product a try. I must say that the color, consistency, and how it works is comparable to Urban …Read more

Pressed Powders - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2014

I have incredibly oily skin with large pores. In my experience, no powder, foundation, mattifier, primer, spray, etc. has ever kept my oil at bay all day. With that said, I have realistic expectations when approaching foundations.

I never expected this powder to be a holy grail foundation for me because controlling oil is not something it claims to do, which it does not. Some days, I …

Hair - Kenra - Platinum Blow-Dry Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2014

I have thick, straight hair that has some bend at the end -- and A LOT of it, which is prone to frizziness and looking big (not the cute, freshly blown-out kind of "big," but like an unruly bird's nest kind of "big.") Blow-drying my hair used to be such a chore that I wouldn't even bother styling it because I'd be drained by the time I would finish just drying …Read more

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2014

I have incredibly oily skin with large pores. And, no mattifier, foundation, powder, primer, setting spray, etc. has ever fully kept my oil at bay. With that said I have pretty reasonable expectations, and I must say that I do love this foundation.

I do have to blot on average once a day, but instead of using 3 oil-absorbing sheets, I just need one. I can honestly say that this …

Eyeliner - Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Gel Creamliner Trio

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2014

I have very oily skin and even oilier eyelids, but I have discovered what products will work for me and stay budge-proof throughout the day. With that being said, even with my reliable eyelid primer, this eyeliner budged and transferred to my lower eye, which is not okay with me. For those who are wondering, I know the transference wasn't due to my mascara because I have used it with a tried …Read more

Liquid - CHANEL - Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15

Sep/24/2014

To preface, I have very oily skin that cannot be tamed by any skincare product, mattifier, spray, foundation, primer, powder, etc. And, I have large pores that require lots of buffing from my foundation brush.

I thought this foundation left a lovely finish on the skin, felt light, didn't oxidize, and had a pleasant fragrance. However, it could not stand up to my oily glands …
