I wanted to love these. The packaging is cute, the sponges are pretty colors (3 turquoise & 3 pink), & you get 6 sponges for $18! But sadly I can’t endorse because of how badly they tear when you clean them.
When I cleaned the first one I used, it got little tears all in it. Very disappointing. That was a turquoise sponge. I used & cleaned a pink one & it also got tears in …

Concealers - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector

I LOVE THIS CONCEALER! I have dark circles under my eyes & my lids are also dark. I normally wear eyeshadow on my lids, but when I don't, I use this on my lids in addition to my under eye area. I have this in the medium & it is the perfect shade for me. If I decide to skip foundation, I can still wear this & it doesn't look cakey or make-upy like a lot of concealers do. I …Read more

Moisturizers - Philosophy - Renewed Hope in a Jar

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2017

My review will be short & to the point:
Received a small sample tube of this for free. Would never buy this because A). the scent is too strong. I don't like it at all. Too perfumey. It would have gotten 3 lippies if not for the strong scent. & B). while this wasn't a bad moisturizer, it was certainly nothing special. There are better, far less expensive moisturizers out …

I really like this foundation a lot. I've been using it for the past 3 years or so. I have some hyperpigmentation on my cheeks, as well as some small broken capillaries on my face (mostly on my left side, even though I sleep on my right side, but I digress...). I also work long hours & this foundation covers up my flaws & doesn't budge throughout my day. My only complaint is I …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Box O'Powder Blush - Dandelion

2.0

Oct/02/2016

This came in a gift set I got last year, along with several other shades. It is a very light pink shade. If you don't have a fair to very fair complexion, this won't show up on you. It doesn't show up on me at all. However, if you are very fair skinned, I could see where this could be a HG blush. It's a nice texture & it is a pretty color, it's just too light for my …Read more

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

5.0

Dec/15/2015

Love! It's a perfect shade for me. It's not orange, not red, not muddy. It lasts all day long on me, and when I say all day, I mean 12+ hours! I use this to contour my cheeks & nose with this & it doesn't take much. At $28 a pop, it's not cheap, but a little goes a long way, so this will last a while. I've been using this same box almost every day for 5 months …Read more

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Continuous Color - In the Nude

3.0

Nov/28/2015

I didn't have the experience of this turning pink on me. The color is #550, which I'm noting in case they've changed things up.
This looks like a mauvey nude, which is perfect for my lips. It goes on creamy & lasts about 3 hours on me. I wish it had a little more staying power, but it's so cheap, I can afford to reapply as needed. I can wear it alone or line my lips …

Hair Styling Tools - BaByliss Pro - U-Styler Flat Iron

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2014

For reference, I have thin, fine, naturally curly, frizz-prone hair.

I am less than impressed with up this iron. It has 3 heat settings. The lowest one doesn't get hot enough to get my hair straight, the middle setting gets it straight, but it doesn't eliminate the frizz. The highest setting gets it straight & gets the frizz out, but it is too hot though. It gets so hot …

Nails - Color Club - Beyond

Love this color! It's a beautiful dark grey holographic. Perfect for fall/winter. I haven't had any issues with chipping. Color Club does some of the best holo polishes, & they're cheap! I paid $6.30 (that included the shipping) for mine on Amazon. I bought 2 other CC holos, which I'll review later (haven't worn them yet, only swatched)

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Eyeshadow Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2013

I bought this palette on a whim, after seeing some gorgeous looks done with it.
Unfortunately for me, my coloring does not work with this palette (see above). My eyes look tired when I use it. I wish I had returned it, but I threw out the box like an idiot before I even used it. Not too smart!
I'm hoping I'll find a way to mix these colors with some others that are more …
