Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Soapwalla- Deodorant Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

15 days ago

This is one of the better deodorant creams that I have tried. Even though I still sweated a bit (remember, it's not an antiperspirant), Soapwalla kept odor at bay for the better part of the day. It doesn't match Pretty Frank's Zinc formulas, but it comes pretty close. The two things to remember with this product are that less is more, and to rub it in completely. Even though …Read more

Hair Treatments - Coco & Eve - Like a Virgin Hair Masque

2.0
Created with Sketch.

15 days ago

After seeing this being touted online for the last two years as the best thing for hair since VO5, I decided to give it a try. Heaven knows my hair could use it! However, given the price of the product plus the fact that I have waist-length hair, I was hesitant because I knew it'd be an expensive proposition. But I caught their 2nd-anniversary sale and was able to snag three jars of the …Read more

Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Lume Deodorant

Lume works great...until it doesn’t.

Things were wonderful at first. It provided great odor neutralization for the better part of 24 hours no matter where I used it or how much I sweated. It didn’t keep me dry, but it isn’t an antiperspirant so no surprise there. In the winter, Lume alone was fine; in the summer or on days where I was sweating more than usual, I’d use a little …

Eyes - Unlisted Brand - Sterling Minerals - Eyeshadow

These are the sheerest, least pigmented mineral shadows that I have ever used. I first thought it might have been the buff shade I was using, but even the darker shades have minimal color payoff despite packing the shadow on with a flat brush. If you want any chance of color appearing on your lids, a primer is a must. Even then, prepared to use a LOT of it.

The container leaves a lot …

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

The color range is amazing! it's one of the few foundations that I don't have to buy two shades in order to mix and match my shade. 6.5 Nude is my perfect match: a light shade with neutral undertones that actually come across rather olive. Of course, 6.5 Nude is also one of the few shades in the range that isn't sold in most stores, even in the big NYX displays, so I have to …Read more

Other - Urban Decay - Drop Shot Mix-In Facial Oil

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/04/2018

I thought I'd love Drop Shot. I sometimes use a little jojoba or argan oil in my foundation to sheer it out make it apply more smoothly. And Drop Shot did just that. So it does what it's supposed to do, and does it well.

What is ISN'T supposed to do is make me break out like a teenager. And Drop Shot did just that, and did it very well. At first, I thought I was …

Foundations - Beauty Bakerie - Cake Mix Demi-Matte Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/16/2018

I did some research before buying Cake Mix, and saw a whole plethora of both positive and negative reviews. However, what swayed me into trying it out were two things. First, the shade range is amazing! There's 30 shades--though the lightest is #59 so they're skipping numbers--in different undertones. Seeing the darkest shade as #1 and the lightest shade as #59 was definitely …Read more

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2018

I can't believe that such a fantastic foundation could come from Wet'n'Wild! In fact, this may just be my Holy Grail...until the next HG comes along, of course :)

I originally tried this out in the light warm and light-medium warm shades, and while I was happy with the foundation formula, the color just wouldn't work. I honestly didn't think of trying the …

Fragrances - LUSH - Rose Jam

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2018

No no no no no.

Rose Jam is a fantastic scent in the bath and shower forms. But as a fragrance, Lush really screwed things up. They did something to the formula that makes this fragrance come across smelling more like a scented candle than the Rose Jam we all know and love. It's also a strong scent...obnoxiously strong, bordering on horrendous. It's one of the few things …

Pressed Powders - wet n wild - Photo Focus Pressed Powder

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2018

I would love to tell you how this product perform, but the powder is pressed so hard that it is nearly impossible for me to get any onto my face! Brushes won't pick any up, neither will puffs or sponges. The only way I can use this powder is to scrape some off of the top...and even doing that is tough, not to mention messy! Sorry, but there's too much work involved for me to even …Read more
