I'm pretty surprised by the low-ish rating on this product. It's my favorite balm cleanser! At night I use it as my first cleanse (I practice the double cleanse method) and it removes makeup very effectively, while polishing my skin and leaving me with the most glorious, softest, glowiest skin. It feels so good, in fact, that I hate doing my second cleanse after that! I have taken …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Dewy/Hydrate/Luminous and Smooth Foundation (formerly Fit Me)

Personally, I enjoy this foundation. I use mostly high end foundations, but I do have a few drugstore ones. For drugstore, I normally reach for L'oreal True Match Lumi and I do love it, but I bought this on a whim (and for $6!) to try out based on all the hype I've heard. I'm a MAC NC25, GA Luminous Silk 4.5, Gueralin Lingerie De Peau N02, and 130 in this line matched me well. …Read more

Oct/13/2016

So...I don't really like using concealer, as I find it tends to age me beyond my years. First, a bit about my skin: I have normal skin (can get a tad dry in the winder), with the occasional hormonal blemish, & no wrinkles yet (Thank God!). I also don't have dark circle issues. I do have a small sprinkling of slightly enlarged pores on either side of my nose and I also have an …Read more

BB Cream - REVLON - Photoready BB Cream SPF 30

I am actually shocked at the amount of bad reviews for this product. I really enjoy it. But I also like dewy, moisturized skin. Paula's Choice also rates it a 4 star product. This is definitely something I reach for in the mornings when I don't plan to put on a full face of makeup. It evens out skin tone and gives a glow, all while providing SPF. It's affordable, and the …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Bottom Lash Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2014

YES! The hype is legit on this stuff. After getting lash extensions I ditched the need for mascara, but I still wanted something for my bottom lashes to make them stand out as much as my top. My lashes overall are decent (medium length, somewhat full/thick) and this definitely amps them up! It doesn't smear under my eyes during the day, doesn't flake, and it's easy to remove …Read more

Contour - Smashbox - Step-by-Step Contour Kit

5.0

Dec/08/2014

I think the problem here with some folks thinking it's 'too dark' is the fact that they don't realize that the contour shade is an ACTUAL CONTOUR shade that is made to create shadows on the face (hence the gray tone in it). This is NOT the color you place all over your face, you WILL look strange. That is what the bronze color is for! For me, this palette is great b/c I …Read more

Cleansers - KORRES Natural Products - Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser

5.0

Feb/07/2014

First a little about my skin. It's pretty clear with an occasional hormonal blemish, but it gets pretty dry in the winter, so I wanted something that didn't strip my skin & left it feeling soft yet clean. I've been using this cleanser for almost 2 weeks and I am IN LOVE. It lathers up decently and smells warm and fresh at the same time. It also removes all of my eye makeup …Read more

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

Dec/23/2013

I got this bronzer from a "Little Love Potions" kit by Benefit that contains several deluxe sample sizes of their best-selling products. Hoola bronzer was in the kit, which is one of the reasons I bought it, as I've always wanted to try it. I LOVE IT! The color pay off is fabulous, the consistency is so smooth it's almost creamy, and it blends like a dream! It's …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Suave - Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray

Dec/23/2013

This is my go-to for in-between shampoos. I have really long, thick hair & I am not oily whatsoever. I can literally go a full 7 days without washing my hair (of course, I still throw on a shower cap and take a daily shower, haha). I shake it well and shake it also while I apply it at the roots. Once it's applied I take my fingers and gently massage for about 30 seconds to help the …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal Lash

I consider myself a mascara junkie and I've tried them all, from crazy cheap to hella expensive. This mascara is so-so. It's a good daytime, natural looking mascara. Unfortunately for me, I prefer drama all day, all the time. The more lashes, the better. My lashes are somewhat long, straight and semi-thick. It performs ok, and I would probably be willing to purchase the small size …Read more
