I LOVE these and hope more colors come out and they're never discontinued!! I've got Crimson Feels, Wine Trip, and Naughty Mauve. What I really love about these is that they're truly buildable. They can be sheer or opaque and it never feels too thick or clumpy. They also fade BEAUTIFULLY and leave almost a stain on the lips, especially Crimson Feels and Wine Trip. All the shades …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Maybelline New York - Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

This is a perfectly fine alternative to something like Smashbox photo finish or Porefessional. To me it is no better or worse than those. It's really silicone-y which gives a very smooth finish but can feel kind of greasy and can ball up. It also won't play well with some kinds of base makeup. The pores on my cheeks near my nose are pretty noticeable barefaced but this covers them up …Read more

Overall I really like this product and I'm glad I tried it. It gives exactly the amount of coverage I want: somewhere between light and medium, veering on light. It's definitely not entirely sheer, and with concealer it's perfect. The finish is kind of dewy/satiny but it plays well with setting powder (actually my HG is the Bare Minerals mineral veil but I've also used it with …Read more

I'm sad a lot of people have had negative reactions to this product because I love it. I'm on my second tube. For years my favorite moisturizer was Cerave PM, but when I started tretinoin, my skin got really sensitive and the PM was stinging my face. Even though my skin is oily, I needed something thick, soothing, and gentle. Toleriane Double Repair has been just that! It's not too …Read more

This is my first ever non-drugstore eyeshadow palette. I'm really pleased with the quality of the shadows. I find that they are all well pigmented, not too shimmery, not a lot of fallout or kickback. I can definitely tell a difference in how well these perform versus my Maybelline or Covergirl eyeshadows. I do use an eyelid primer, but at the end of a 10 hour day my eyeshadow looks …Read more

I love eyeshadow but I'm a student who doesn't want to drop $50+ on Urban Decay. I really like the colors of the Naked 3 though and finally drugstore brands have offered up their own versions. There are a couple of things I like about TruNaked Roses: the shades are beautiful, they're shimmery but not sparkly, and the pigmentation is really really good for a drugstore brand. I …Read more

Styling Products - Living Proof - Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment

I got a sample of this a while ago but it has lasted a very long time. The simple elegant packaging really appeals to me. The scent is light and does not stay in my hair long but it is, to my nose, decidedly masculine. Doesn't really go well with any other scented products that I am using.

Between this, Bumble & bumble Straight Blow Dry, and Aveda Smooth Infusion, I would say …

Gels/ Soaps - Shea Moisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Soap with Songyi Mushroom

Jan/18/2017

Between the scrub, soap, and lotion, I think I liked the soap the best. The scent is pleasant but does not linger. It is weakest in the soap than in the other two products. It did not dry out my skin. The lather is pretty creamy. I didn't notice any kind of brightening or toning but I am always skeptical of soaps or shower gels that promise dramatic results like that. It is a better value …Read more

Body Scrubs - Shea Moisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Body Scrub

Jan/18/2017

I like this better than the matching body lotion but it is not perfect. The smell was great at first but someone told me it smelled like crayons and now I can't shake it. The sugar in the scrub dissolved really quickly so it didn't do well for heavy duty exfoliation like I wanted. However for something like daily use it would be great -- if it weren't so pricey for what it …Read more

Jan/18/2017

At first I loved the scent: tropical and yet floral. But one day my roommate said I smelled like crayons and he was 100% correct. That basically ruined this product for me.

It is decently moisturizing but I have used better products that don't cost as much and smell as good or better. Also, after using it for a while it started to sting my legs, especially if I used it after …
