Sunscreen - CANMAKE - Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50 / PA

My favorite sunscreen of all time. It is truly a joy to use and works very well on my combination skin. No fragrance, alcohol, or white cast. Beautiful finish, great protection. If I'm going to be sweating or outside for a long time I'll use something more tenacious/waterproof (Skin Aqua UV Milk), but otherwise this is my everyday SPF. It's pretty moisturizing and I don't need …Read more

I got these on a whim, without reading reviews clearly, in a desperate attempt to get some eye makeup off while on a trip. These stung both my eyes and face like crazy and made my skin very red and angry...one of those "how did they let this get to production?" kind of products.

I am really enjoying this! I have oily, sensitive/reactive skin prone to dehydration. I'd say this is about on par with Clinique DDMG in terms of moisturizing capability, but with the added benefits of ceramides and such. I haven't experienced any irritation or clogging, and it provides plenty of moisture for my skin. Main gripe is that they could have easily put this in a pump …Read more

I am very fair, neutral leaning warm (Nars RCC in Chantilly) and have high maintenance, hateful lips (dry, very prone to flaking/peeling). I have Hitch Hike (comfort matte) and Liar (cream) and both are completely non-drying and don't make my lips peel -- miraculous! Both colors are lovely against my skin tone and have very good lasting power (Hitch Hike is a bit better in that regard due to …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Audacious Lipstick (All Shades)

Lovely shade range, most leaning warm, but the formula was not for me. The shade I tried was Brigitte. I found that it really just sat there and never settled and melded with my lips. This lead to lots of transfer and settling/caking into lines and corners. It also did not smooth out the texture of my lips like my favorite formulas (Mac Amplified and UD Vice Cream) and really emphasized any …Read more

I have more SN lippies at this point than any other brand, and for good reason!! Quality is comparable to high end brands, but prices top out around $5.75. I really enjoy the slimline format for being both compact and easy to apply on my annoyingly sharp upper lip. I have several of the formulas - - lipstick, velvet matte lipstick, kisser slicker, amplifying lip glaze, hypergloss, and slick …Read more

I am around NC10-15 and most pinks look absolutely horrific and clashy on me, but not this! It also doesn't pull too brown or mauve like a lot of other muted pink lipsticks. On me it's the perfect warm pink with just enough brown to make it look slightly muted and very natural...it's a lot like what I *wanted* Bite Beauty's Pepper to be (pulled way too brown and dark) …Read more

Jul/22/2016

I almost feel a bit guilty writing this review as a longtime reader of the skincare board, which typically condemns Lush's facial products (I still agree that a lot of their products contain potentially irritating and sun-sensitizing ingredients). Nevertheless, after trying nearly everything you tend to throw caution to the wind. For the past two years I've been dealing with a chronic …Read more

Oh boy, this absolutely burned the crap out of my eyes to the point of tears and took 3 or so washes to get it all off. I don't think I've ever had such a severe reaction to a product around my eyes and I should've seen it coming because I noticed a bit of burning two nights leading up to the grand finale. I haven't figured out what ingredient caused it, but I'm able to …Read more

Apr/23/2016

I absolutely love the Lippie Stix! I have amassed quite a few at this point, but my favorites are Topanga (Satin), Contempo (Matte), and Crunch (d/c Sheer). My lips are extremely dry and prone to peeling, but these don't exacerbate the problem like a lot of other brands do. The Satin and Matte formulas last 5+ hours on me, and even the sheer formula sticks around for a decent number of …Read more
