Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Kristin Ess Sea Salt Air Dry Spray

2.0

3 months ago

Picked this product up as I’m always on the hunt for good air-drying products, but unfortunately this one didn’t work out quite as well as I had hoped. While not a total dud, it’s probably my least favorite sea salt spray that I’ve ever tried. Which is not to say that it doesn’t work, because it does. It actually does a pretty good job adding volume and texture to my fine, straight hair. What …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Murad - Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum

Man this serum is worthless. I picked it up for half price during Ulta's Love Your Skin event back in January and have been using it every day for two months, and it hasn't done anything at all. I was hoping it'd fade some sun spots on my face and a few post acne hyperpigmentation, but there's been no change in either. The only nice things I have to say about it is that …Read more

Cleansers - Physicians Formula - The Perfect Matcha 3-in-1 Melting Cleansing Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Excellent cleansing balm! Right out of the jar, it has a texture that reminds me of a much lighter version of Vaseline. It spreads easily across the skin and melts almost instantly into a thin oil. Add a splash of water, and it emulsifies into a light lotion-like consistency that rinses away easily. This balm breaks down makeup (including waterproof mascara) and sunscreen efficiently, and …Read more

Lips - essence - Kiss The Frog Lipstick

My new favorite tinted lip balm! Color changing lip products are pretty silly and gimmicky, but I love the way this looks on. It’s green in the tube, but is a beautiful, raspberry pink on the lip. The pigmentation of this product is sheer but buildable. It’s never going to deliver anything close to opaque coverage, but the color can become brighter and bolder with more swipes. And the color …Read more

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Ink Well Long-Wear Matte Eyeliner - Lolita

Man I wanted to like this liner more than I did! The formula is great: super matte, very pigmented, applies easily and smoothly and wears all day without smudging or flaking. But the color (a mid-tone brownish pink) just doesn’t work for me as a liner. I’d love it as an eyeshadow, but it’s just not dark enough for me to love it as a liner. If it were a few shades darker I’d be all over it …Read more

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Love this palette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is the eye shadow palette OF MY DREAMS, one that I’ve been waiting for a cosmetics company to come out with! I have a fair-light, neutral-cool complexion and dusty roses, mauves and plums are my jam. They look much more natural on me than the shades you’d find in a generic nude palette, but it can be surprisingly difficult to find shades like …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Lano - Hands Coconutter Hand Cream Intense

5.0

My new favorite hand cream! So so rich and moisturizing, but never slick, tacky or greasy. It leaves my skin feeling like velvet and has been a miracle for my rough and raggedy cuticles. And it smells like frosting! The only cons are the price ( and that it can be a little difficult spread straight out of the tube. The texture is incredibly thick and balm-like, so you’ll need to work it between …Read more

Eyeliner - REVLON - ColorStay Exactify Liquid Liner

Bummer product! The liner itself is pretty nice, but the applicator is awful. The pizza wheel applicator is awkward to maneuver into place without my eyelashes getting into the way. I’m relatively adept with liquid eyeliner, I had a hard time getting it to line right at the base of my lashline. I gave up pretty quickly and grabbed a fine tipped eyeliner brush and used that to apply the liner …Read more

Styling Products - Pacifica - Salty Waves Beach Hair Balm

4.0

Nice hair balm! I don't know that it does anything to add waves into my hair, but it makes my hair so soft, so shiny and so smooth when I used it like a leave in conditioner. It feels very lightweight and doesn't weigh down my fine hair or make it feel stiff or sticky. It's also good finishing balm to use for smoothing down frizz or making my hair a little more piece-y looking …Read more

Nice, basic SLS-free shampoo. It's very gentle, suds up beautifully for a SLS free shampoo, and leaves my hair clean and manageable. It smells nice too. I think the scent is supposed to be banana and coconut, but I smell bubblegum. What it does not do though is add any texture to my hair. Maybe it works better on people with more natural texture than I possess, but it doesn't do …Read more
