Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Vitamin E Hand and Nail Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/27/2017

Packaging is practical (as well as the size for purse/bags) and the company is cruelty free but I think that's where the pros end for me. I don't hate the scent as much as other reviewers do (it smells similar but not the same as original Oil of Olay moisturizer) but what really bothers me is how it dries down. It leaves my hands feeling tacky/sticky and that is a huge dealbreaker for …Read more

Styling Products - Kenra - Ultimate Freeze Gel 30

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2017

Non-flaking, my butt. Flaked everywhere. I like to slick my hair back into a tight bun for gym sessions and I need something that will keep all of my coarse baby hairs and wispy flyaways in place. This claims to be non-flaking but it completely flaked on me multiple times... granted, it was because I pulled my hoodie on/off over my head but I've used plenty of other hard hold styling …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Natasha Denona - Anti-Shine Flawless Face Base

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2016

Was looking for a cruelty mattifying primer and came across this option from Natasha Denona. The primer is packaged in a cute little hard plastic pump bottle but I imagine it will be difficult to get the last bits of the product when you start to run low (you'll have to invert the bottle on its head and hope that the last of the product collects near the bottle opening) -- all primers should …Read more

Foundations - Per-fekt - Skin Perfection Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2016

I'm in the market for a cruelty free tinted foundation primer -- something that I can wear on its own to blur out my mega huge pores and even out redness when I'm not looking to do a "full face", as well as something that can function as a nice base for the days where I do want more coverage.

I got the shade in Radiant for my NC25 skin which was a good enough match …

Eyeliner - Hourglass Cosmetics - 1.5mm Mechanical Gel Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2016

Not sure when Hourglass released the Canyon (black-brown) and Ocean Floor (navy) colors of this pencil, but I'm so glad they did! For an everyday "natural" look, I prefer to use a dark brown eyeliners(saving black for dramatic/special occasion looks) to create the appearance of a thick lash line. The super skinny tip helps me stay close to the lash line while maintaining a really …Read more

Candles - Unlisted Brand - Voluspa Candles (All)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2016

There's only two scents I like from Voluspa (and I've only tried eight of them) but I'm leaving this review for those who aren't able to get Voluspa in store (to do some sniff tests pre-purchasing). And obviously take my review with a grain of salt since we might have different scent preferences/registries.

1. Moso Bamboo --- smells like the dry florals section of a …

Candles - Unlisted Brand - Voluspa - Saijo Persimmon Candle

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2016

I hate rating scents because fragrance is so subjective but in case this helps someone determine whether or not they want to take a risk and order it online (if they're unable to find this anywhere in store to do a sniff test), this candle smells exactly like Haribo Peach Ring candies. Maybe a little less sweet and a bit of a "fresh" note but yeah pretty much peach ring candies …Read more

Mascara - Eyeko - Sport Waterproof Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/27/2016

Eyeko claims this mascara will help "create dramatic lashes plumped to perfection" but unless you're blessed with a full set of thick dark lashes, this will do no such thing.

Pros:
- waterproof
- cruelty free
- defines lashes
- cute packaging
- interesting brush shape allows for good application (shaped like a cobra about to attack) …

Concealers - Glossier - Stretch Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/21/2016

I feel like this is one of those types of concealers that is best used for covering light imperfections or for highlighting/contouring given its creamy texture. My main concerns are redness and acne marks -- this covers redness around my nose but does not effectively cover any of my post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks. I can always see a bit of a spot peaking through whenever I layer. I …Read more

Lips - Glossier - Generation G

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/21/2016

I initially did not give these tinted "balms" a second look but then I came across neonblush IG wearing the color Cake and loved how modern it looked. I ended up ordering Cake as well and it's the best modern nude color that I have to date. These aren't moisturizing at all but they come in a lip balm delivery system (easy tube, skinny bullet for more precise application) so …Read more
