LOVE this highlighter. I normally don't wear very bold or bright colors, but I saw a lavender highlighter on Instagram and was obsessed immediately. I got this in lavender steel and I'm a huge fan. It's still too purple for me to wear every day, but I LOVE it on a night out. This is definitely a product that needs a light hand and to be carefully blended. It's the perfect …Read more

I got a great deal on this at TJ Maxx so I was really excited to try it. I'm fair-light with cool undertones (NARS Vanilla concealer) but I actually really like the shade "warm glow." Having basically three products in one (the champagne, the pink, and a mix) makes this so versatile. It is more on the sparkly side of highlighters than a glowing sheen, but it's not too bad …Read more

This is such a great, versatile product and I'm so glad I took a chance on it. When I bought this I had no idea what I actually wanted from it: a glowy primer, a foundation mix-in, or a standalone highlighter. Turns out it's pretty good at all three. It really shines, in my opinion, as a subtle highlighter. There is no glitter or sparkle. I would describe the finish as a slightly …Read more

I’m a huge fan of this product and was very surprised it wasn’t in the database. First the smell is amazing. A heavenly vanilla, maybe coconut too. Really warm and sweet. If you’re sensitive to fragrance this is not the product for you. I usually use this when I curl my hair. Brushing out curls and spraying this gives amazing bouncy, full texture with the teeniest bit of hold and absolutely no …Read more

This is an okay hair smoother. I really like the way it smells. It’s green and fresh, not in a citrusy way but more herbal and earthy. The packaging is super cute too. My hair is pretty thick and long with some mild damage from balayage. It air dries wavy. This does not straighten my hair at all which is fine with me. The waves are a little more defined. I can also use a lot without it weighing …Read more

Conditioner - Olaplex - No5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner

My hair is long, thick, and color treated including balayage. What I look for in a conditioner is something that will hydrate my hair, keep it smooth/silky with no tangles, maybe reduce frizz, and hopefully accomplish that all without weighing my hair down or making it get greasy quickly. Somehow, this conditioner pretty much does all that. I wouldn't say that I'm totally WOWed by it …Read more

My hair is long, thick, and color treated including balayage. What I look for in a shampoo is something that will lather well and clean my hair without making it feel too dry, stripped, or tangled. I don't care about sulfates or anything as much as I care about results. All that said, I really like this shampoo! The smell is really great (sweet and citrusy), it lathers up so much even with a …Read more

I'm a huge fan of Olaplex 3 and the shampoo and conditioner as well. I got all the products in a holiday set so I've been using them for several months now (October-January). Everything smells really good, with the same fresh and clean sweet citrus fragrance. The #6 leave-in is the one I feel most conflicted about. My hair is long, thick, and color treated including balayage. So what I …Read more

Wish this was a little longer lasting on the lips but I love it. A great MLBB color on me. I’m fair/light (wear vanilla in Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer) with pink undertones. This isn’t too warm or coral on me. It’s moisturizing, shiny, comfortable. Just keep it in your bag to reapply.

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

I’m so torn on this mascara. It looks great on my lashes, not too clumpy or too long which can be annoying since I wear glasses. It’s great for a full face, maybe a little too dramatic for me for a natural everyday makeup look. The problem is that it flakes around my eyes and gives me raccoon eyes. I have somewhat oily skin and almost every non-tubing mascara does this for me, so on the one hand …Read more
