Mascara - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Lengthening & Volumizing Waterproof Mascara

Dec/01/2015

I've recently been trying out waterproof mascaras, as I had previously shunned them with no real reason for doing so. Nevertheless, I like to try high end products as well as the low end products to get a feel for what I can expect overall. So I recently tried ELF's Waterproof Studio Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara and was thoroughly impressed. It's usually hit or miss with …Read more

Foundations - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Acne Fighting Foundation

4.0

Nov/12/2015

For the price point this is a fantastic product. It has medium to full coverage which is great, especially for acne sufferers like myself. It dries quickly and doesn't feel greasy. It also has decent staying power once it is set with powder. It does seem to help calm and clear current acne and certainly doesn't cause any new flare ups for me. However, as with most ELF foundations Ive …Read more

Loose Powders - Tarte Cosmetics - Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder

Aug/03/2015

I swore I'd never touch another Tarte product after having so many epic fails, mostly due to the products causing acne...not just any acne, but painful and throbbing cystic acne. I'm not even sure why I didn't toss this product in the garbage from the get-go after having these experiences. This was free, it was a deluxe sample I received from Sephora with something or another. With …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Shea Moisture - Lavendar & Wild Orchid Body Lotion

Mar/13/2015

I initially purchased this product to supplement my regular body lotion through this winter. I live in the Northeastern US and it was a cold and brutal winter, and it wreaked havoc on my skin. I was perusing through Target looking for a nice thick body butter, knowing that if I didn't find one, that I'd just grab a bottle of Gold Bond lotion. I found this Shea Moisture line of products …Read more

This one is a high end gem. I love it, it meets all of my criteria for the perfect foundation.which are:

1.Good Color match
2. Little or no oxidation
3. Truly noncomedegenic
4. Medium to Full coverage
5. Oil Control!!!
6. Longevity of all the aforementioned attributes!

The only qualm I have is the super fast dry time. You have got to work fast, no …

Mascara - NYC New York Color - Big Bold CURL Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/17/2015

Ok, so I received this in an Ipsy bag...months ago and I'm just now trying it. With that in mind, this particular tube could be old. I have the straightest, most resistant to curl lashes ever (which makes no sense considering my hair is quite the contrary) so I work the lash curler and hope that the mascara will hold the curl without straightening my lashes out. This mascara did just that …Read more

Fragrances - Lolita Lempicka - L de Lolita Lempicka

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2015

I feel perhaps this is a lighter, beachier version of the original Lolita Lempicka. Just my humble opinion. Initially this has orange/citrus notes, then fades into sweeter vanilla notes, and hours later will have mild sandlewood notes. This doesn't have the throw and longevity of some of the other Lolita Lempicka fragrances, which would make this a good summertime fragrance if you are like …Read more

Clothes - Unlisted Brand - La Senza- All Products

Jan/02/2015

Being American, I'd only ever encountered La Senza during my trips to Montreal. I was enticed by the bright colors and beautiful lingerie inside the store. Not being familiar with the products, I asked the clerks if La Senza quality and sizing was comparable to Victoria's Secret. They told me it was, so I decided to give it a go. I noticed the sales promotions were almost identical to …Read more

Lip Treatments - NYX Professional Makeup - Butter Balm

Dec/21/2014

I also received this product in my December Ipsy bag. I received this in the color Marshmallow. It is truly a gorgeous, matte nude color. It applies easily and adds just enough color, while still being a bit sheer. It also has decent color longevity. There are no noticeable offending flavors or odors. HOWEVER, it has the drying power of something I've never experienced. Wow, does this ever …Read more

Lip Gloss - Urban Decay - Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

Created with Sketch.

Dec/18/2014

As someone who favors glosses over traditional lipstick, I can really appreciate the quality of this lipgloss. I have this in Lovechild and Sesso (it came with Naked on the Run pallette). These have just enough pigment to enhance your own natural lipcolor and complement the rest of your makeup. With that said, these are aptly named being part of the Naked line, as one should not expect bold in …Read more
