Concealers - W7 - W7 Catwalk Concealer

May/06/2017

I have naturally very, very dark undereye circles; as I get older my skin is also getting drier; for these reasons, I am constantly trying new concealers. I ignored this one for quite a while, because didn't think it would be any good. Truth is, this is a great little concealer! It does not settle into the fine lines under my eyes, which is impressive (most concealers do, even if they …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Clump Crusher Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2017

I had big expectations for this mascara, given all the great reviews. It applies very easily, separates the lashes nicely, gives good length. It's not clumping, so there's none of the spider-y effect. Doesn't smudge either. It would have been perfect if wasn't for the flaking, which is minimal, but it is there nonetheless. I can handle a few flakes, so will continue to …Read more

Moisturizers - Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer

Aug/05/2016

I received a .5 oz sample of this, otherwise it's not the kind of product I'd have picked up. My skin is more mature and has become a bit drier this past year or so. This product is clearly not for my skin type: it simply does not moisturize enough. It might work better for young people with normal or combo skins. I'm going to guess that the target demographic for this product …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Light Soft Matte Hydra Light Makeup SPF10

May/05/2016

Initially, given all the hype, I was interested in getting the Double Wear foundation. It took one try for me to decide that it was not for me: it was way too cakey and mask-like on me. So, I picked up the light version.

Overall, I quite liked this foundation. It gives a matte finish, but does not make my skin look dull or flat. The coverage was about medium, so was perfect for …

Eye Primer - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Essential Eyelid Primer - Champagne

2.0

Dec/01/2015

It simply doesn't work: with this one, the eyeshadow creases on me within a couple of hours. The color sheers out quite nicely into a light taupe-ish color. The problem is that it is sparkly, and the sparkle transfers and falls out. There wasn't that much product in the tube, but I don't regret that because the product simply doesn't work for me.

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

1.0

Nov/07/2015

My skin has become a bit drier in recent months, so I've been on a hunt for a new foundation. I tried this foundation with different primers and always on a well-moisturized skin. It is lightweight and has great pigmentation, so you need very little and doesn't feel cakey. On the negative side, it clung to every pore and every line on my face, accentuating them in the worst possible …Read more

Cleansers - Simple - Foaming Facial Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/01/2014

This product claims to be "kind to skin" and on the back of the bottle it says the skin "will feel cleansed, refreshed and moisturized. Perfect even for sensitive skin." My skin is not sensitive; it can take pretty much anything I apply on it; it is normal/combination.

It is a liquid that turns into a foam/light mousse type of a consistency. One to one and half …

Dec/04/2013

I don’t have dry skin, but its winter and I use anti-aging products, so my skin does need more moisture than usual. I purchased this product on a whim at CVS and am very glad that I did.

Cloudberry seed oil has been found to help moisturize, preserve elasticity, and have anti-oxidant effects on the skin. There is also jojoba oil, avocado oil, etc. included in this product. While I …

Lipstick - Paula Dorf - Sheer Tint Lipstick in Calypso

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2013

What makes this lipstick stand out is the formula: it is super soft, moisturizing, and glides effortlessly. It also has SPF 15. I am more of a natural/minimal make-up type of a person and, in addition to avoiding intense red lipsticks, was a bit apprehensive about buying this particular shade as it looks dark reddish/brownish in the case. Because it is sheer, however, it is very buildable and …Read more

I love this shampoo! It leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean. Adds a bit of body to my fine hair. Has a nice, pleasant smell. Have used up two bottles of the shampoo already, but none of the conditioner. It is a bit pricey.
