BB Cream - REVLON - Photoready BB Cream SPF 30

Aug/15/2013

After two tubes of this BB cream I am decided that my feelings toward it are neutral. I like the lightweight feel of it compared to wearing foundation every day, but this product does have its drawbacks. On their website Revlon claims this product "HYDRATES like moisturizer, SMOOTHES like primer, COVERS like foundation, BLURS FLAWS like concealer, and PROTECTS with SPF 30 like …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Garnier - Dark Spot Corrector

Jun/21/2013

I had extremely bad acne scarring, and after using this product for two weeks it is barely noticeable. I use it every morning as a spot treatment, and let it sink in before I put on my moisturizer. I have some other mild discoloration, particularly at the corners of my mouth, which I haven't noticed as dramatic a change in the appearance of. However, this product was perfect for what I …Read more

Styling Products - TIGI - Bed Head Candy Fixations - Sugar Shock Bodifying Spray

Jun/07/2013

First off, the smell of this product is really very nice, very Aquolina Pink Sugar-esque. As for adding volume, did not do much. I've tried it on slightly damp hair as well as dry hair and both ways my hair fell flat again within an hour. The same goes for any "tousled" look initially provided. It does get very sticky if you apply too much or if you spray too closely to your hair …Read more

Self Tanners - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion in Natural Medium Tan

May/29/2013

I will wait an hour and it still won't feel completely dry. My white sheets are now the same shade of tan as my body, so that's cool. Looks ridiculous when you first put it on; the color develops to become more natural but it still doesn't really look authentic (slightly orange and a little splotchy) and the shimmer definitely won't be for everyone. I might finish the bottle …Read more

Lip Treatments - C.O. Bigelow - Rose Salve

May/29/2013

I LOVE this salve for my cuticles -- I put it on at night and in the morning my fingertips look amazing and hydrated. It's okay for lips but it can feel a bit greasy and sits on your lips. I LOATHE the packaging. It's clunky, and I always have a struggle to open it when it's fully closed (I've had to use pliers once or twice, and if you're trying to reopen it with the …Read more

Toners - CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion #3

Nov/05/2012

This is a product from Clinique that I actually really like. I use this after using makeup remover wipes to get the last bits of anything gross off my face. It's amazing what can still be left on your face even when you feel it's clean! The bottle recommends using it twice a day but I only use it once. I've found it can cause a slight burning sensation at times but it's …Read more

Shampoo - OGX - Hydrating Macadamia Oil Shampoo

Nov/05/2012

I HATE this product. I've been using this less than a week and the difference in the condition of my hair is egregious. My ends are dry and hard to manage, split end city. In the shower my hair is literally squeaky clean but is a tangled mess (a problem I never experienced with the other shampoos from this brand that I've tried.) My hair feels flat, and nowhere near …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby for Green Eyes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2012

I love love love this mascara, but I will admit when I first bought it it took some getting used to. I have hazel eyes, but love to accentuate the green in them, so I was really interested in the Exact Eyelights range when it came out. I have also tried the Exact Eyelights shadows for green eyes, but they did not make my eyes pop nearly as much as this mascara did. As a fan of big, black, more …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Sun Protecting Lip Balm SPF 8 with Passionfruit

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2012

I generally love all of the Burt's Bees lip balms, so I was unpleasantly surprised to discover this product was not nearly as good quality as the other BB lip balms I've tried. It moisturizes initially, but this does not last long and my lips even feel a bit drier afterward. The texture when applying it to your lips is gritty and crumbly. I've actually used paper towels to …Read more

BB Cream - Maybelline New York - Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

Jul/22/2012

I've been using this product for about two weeks straight, and while I like it better now than the first time I used it, but still less than I had hoped I would when I bought it. The finish is less dewy than I generally like, but is still nice. The coverage is sheer, but I've found that it's buildable. Regardless, concealer is still needed for any major blemishes or concerns. It …Read more
