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

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 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

Lip Treatments - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Line Lip Primer & Plumper

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/29/2018

The primer end is utterly horrible: it applies patchy, looks pasty, and is impossible to blend so it's even. It also smells strange.

On the other hand, the plumper end is rather nice: a clear gloss with a cinnamon scent. It stings a bit when you apply it (helpful tip: do NOT apply right after exfoliating!) but that wears off and leaves behind a nice gloss and brighter …

Mascara - Kat Von D - Immortal Lash

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/29/2018

What is with makeup companies and these crazy mascara brushes? This contorted thing does a poor job of applying the mascara: skipping lashes here and overcoating lashes there. Also, those spikes on the brush are sharp and not fun if you accidentally jab yourself with them. Then I have to go through with my iLash Comb to separate my lashes...which given how thick Immortal Lash's formula …Read more

Toners - Pixi - Rose Caviar Essence

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2018

Pixi Rose Caviar Essence is a good product. It isn't greasy, provides light moisturizing, isn't irritating but actually soothing (and I used it on skin that was severely irritated from another brand's face wash) and does smell wonderfully of roses. It does what it says it will do. But honestly, there's nothing special to it that sets it miles apart from a lot of other …Read more

BB Cream - Urban Decay - Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2018

One of the best BB creams that I have ever tried! It goes on evenly and smoothly, and does a great job of leveling out my flaws without masking everything. Coverage is light and not really buildable, but if I wanted more than light coverage, I wouldn't be turning to a BB cream. The finish is very natural: satiny, not greasy. It doesn't require any powder afterwards, and it last …Read more
