I've never had issues with my skin, but after having a baby my hormones were all over the place and my skin felt the consequences. I started using a couple of Weleda products that I think made my skin worse, so I needed something to soothe it and calm the redness, spots and bring it back to normal. I was going to get the Skin Rescuer from Kiehl's but the SA advice me to get this one …Read more

I never really believe in products that claim to adapt to your skin giving everyone a different shade, but decided to splurge on this after reading great things about it and seeing countless people use it, since it's not cheap at all.
I LOVE IT. Whenever I don't know what blush to wear, or if I'm having a bleh day, I put this on and it just transforms my face. I have a few …

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Rouge Cream Blush - Rose Petal

Apr/23/2013

This is my first NYX cream blush and it has set the bar high for other shades.
The consistency is perfect, not dry at all (like other cream blushes that you have to 'warm up' before blending) more runny and 'wet' in the good sense. It blends easily into the skin -I use a Real Techniques stippling brush to apply it-, over bare face, foundation and even powder. And the …

There was such a hype around this line that when their products became available I wanted to try them. I got the foundation and the concealer, and even though I like both, this concealer has become one of my HG products.
I deal with undereye circles, so light reflective concealers/highlighters alone don't do the trick, I've been combining a highlighting concealer for birghtness and …

I haven't had the best of lucks with Revlon mascaras. I only tried one (Fabulash Waterproof) and gated it so much that made me stay away from Revlon mascaras for a while. But since I've heard such good things about this one, I gave it a try. It quickly became my everyday mascara. If you like full lashes with volume (not extremely dramatic though) this is a good pick. It doesn't …Read more

I own more eyeshadows than I use, but this is one of my go-to ones. I pair it over 'Vintage Selection' paint pot from MAC, go big or go home, right? I love how sparkly and shimmery it is. Yes, it's really shimmery. The formula is really soft and blends easily. I use a primer, so I don't have issues with staying power or creasing.
If you like natural shimmery luminous …

This is one of my favorite blushes of all time. Perfect for everyday, or when I don't really know what blush to wear. It's one of my go-to blushes since I don't even have to think about how to apply it or what to pair it with. You only need a tiny bit, it's easy to apply, and it adds a healthy looking flush of color. I don't find it glittery or shimmery, it's more …Read more

I became obsessed with this blush after watching a YouTube video and seeing how great it looked. I already owned 'Her blooming cheek' (limited edition from the Tartan Tale collection) which is a powder, but don't use it that often since it's really hard for me to have a light hand with such a pigmented blush.
I'm a NC25 (unless I'm tanned) and this gives me a …

Jul/26/2012

I've had good experiences with Rimmel mascaras, they're some of my drugstore favorites, and this is no exception. I've tried the 'Extra Lash' version and didn't like it, so I was surprised to see how much I enjoyed this one.
This mascara has a nice medium size brush that separates the lashes, adds length, doesn't clump or smudge and I find that even though …

The first times I used it seemed like nothing special, but the more I used it, the more I liked it. It's a great everyday mascara, it adds length, but not so much volume. It doesn't clump, it doesn't smudge on me, it doesn't transfer. The thin brush makes it easy to apply on both top and bottom lashes.
As far as the good proprieties it has for your lashes, I still …
