This blender is okay, but what makes it different from knock offs at TJ Maxx or drugstores? I bought these in two packs over the past few months and I must say that these fall apart quickly compared to other beauty blender knock offs. I'm definitely saving my $10 on the two pack and buying drugstore again.

Not a bad powder to set a BB cream or liquid foundation. The price is SO STEEP for this product -- honestly, I have used other powders such as Rimmel (which is about $3-5) that does a similar job, but this powder does last a bit longer without having to touch up. If this was about $20, I might buy it again. Packaging is annoying as the product pan flips up to show a puff. I love the mirror …Read more

I LOVE this formula and product for a cream bronzer/sculptor, but it broke out my face after using it for a few weeks :( I usually don't have sensitive skin, but this formula just didn't work out for me. I use it every once in an while, but I would definitely recommend if you're a fan of affordable bronzers.

Still on the fence with this... I started using this a few weeks ago after using Lioele BB Cream for YEARS. Very similar product, but this has lower coverage than Lioele. I do like the shade range on this product, but I'm not sure if my skin likes it. I'm not prone to break outs AT ALL, but this is breaking out my face a bit. I'm going to give it some more time to try it out …Read more

I've had my Mary-Lou Manizer for YEARS and it's still the best highlighter I've ever owned (and I have a lot...). I had issues with the packaging, almost right away, where the pan popped out of the packaging :(, but I've babied it pretty well and it's still in one piece. Original price is a lot to me, but worth it! Luckily I found this on Hautelook for 17$.

Autumn Catwalk 006 is AMAZING. I love this blush. I previously bought it when it was new to Rimmel, but I put it in my makeup collection and sadly forgot about it. Not sure if they still have this in stock, but I've already hit pan on it since re-discovering this and will need to buy more soon! I'm on live TV for hours a day and this is my go-to blush at the moment; it's not …Read more

Love this! Jordana has really done a great job with lip products recently. This is a matte, true-to-its-name, formula that lasts a lonnnng time. It works really well when paired with a lip liner, of course, and I would recommend a balm under and over the lipstick. Definitely going back for more shades.

I love and hate this product for various reasons - we'll start with the negatives first. The packaging is WAY too bulky (I usually love Too Faced packaging, btw), the brush could be longer, plus the wax disappears so quickly! The last comment is partially a good thing because this is THE BEST EYEBROW SETTING WAX EVER. No lie. I have un-tamable eyebrows that grow in like crazy and this …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser

I love this cleansing water. Garnier, you're doing such a great job in the cleansing water/oil market, both of which I love from your brand. I usually have to pay up to $30-40 for micellar water from various countries, but this one is just as great as oversea brands. It's so gentle, and despite what the packaging says, it takes off mascara and eyeliner if used properly (let a soaked …Read more

Sad times, Burt's Bees. I really do love this brand and was thrilled to try their cleansing oil, but it fell short in many ways. I've tried quite a few cleansing oils, so in comparison to others, Burt's Bees cleansing oil just doesn't work well. It's very thin and doesn't feel as smooth as most oils, which takes away the cleansing after. I use a Clarisonic after …Read more
