BB Cream - Black Radiance - True Complexion bb cream

This is one of those under-rated products with low key packaging and no hype, but earns its place as a makeup staple. Not sure it has any skin improving ingredients, but it provides a lovely natural glow. Sheer coverage, no sparkle, not too much shine. It is for perfect for no-makeup looks. I've used the BR Soft focus powder to set when I wanted more coverage, but it works on its own well …Read more

Cleansers - CeraVe - Hydrating Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2016

I started using this a few months ago when I realized it was time to incorporate more moisturizing cleansers to my routine. This has introduced the right level of moisture retention to my routine. Leaves my combination skin feeling smooth and hydrated, not stripped and with no residue feeling either. It has no smell and doesn't lather. It doesn't remove all your makeup. I generally oil …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Auto Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2016

This is just ok. The texture of the pencil is a bit dry and the shade comes off a bit dusty. It has a warmer tone when applied than it looks. The brush on the other end is so soft, it doesn't do much. The flat wedge shape is helpful since its a twistup point, but it doesn't stay very precise due to the size.

Palettes - Too Faced - Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette [DISCONTINUED]

I wanted to love this. The color palette was just what I was looking for. The packaging is cute. The cocoa smells isn't too much. For me, this eye shadow formula just doesn't pop. Sorry TooFaced :( I have to pack and pack and pack it on to see the color. When I blend, the colors just muddy into each other and fade as the day goes on.

Apr/13/2016

My sis bought this for me three years ago and I've been converted ever since. It is my absolute favorite body wash. Simple natural ingredient list, lots of lather, smells good, affordable. I have sensitive dry skin with occasional excema and kp and this soap doesn't irritate my skin at all. It leaves me clean, hydrated, and smelling fresh. I can use it head to toe; not too harsh for …Read more

BB Cream - Urban Decay - Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2016

I tried this bc I've gotten into sheer foundations lately and I used to love the Naked Skin liquid foundation (shade 12). I tested the deep shade on the back of my hand in the store and thought it looked pretty good - at least worth a try. Unfortunately the deep shade is not only too light, but has a very ashy grey cast. I kept it on hoping it would oxidize or blend better with wear, and it …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Micro Brow Pencil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2016

I bought this bc I loved the NYX skinny chocolate pencil and thought this would be a good replacement with the bonus spoolie. I was confused about the shade range. Really stood in the aisle for a minute comparing espresso, chocolate brunette, medium brown, dark brown...Frustratingly the shades vary from product to product. I bought the chocolate shade, but turns out it is much redder and lighter …Read more

Brows - L'Oreal Paris - Brow Stylist Definer

I ran out of Milani Easy Brow and decided to try this after seeing so many rave youtube reviews. I really like it. The pencil is thin and firm and applies very natural-looking, yet precise. I can do my brows so much faster. I bought it in dark brunette and unfortunately, I hate the color - not warm enough for me, so I will go back for the regular brunette which I hope won't be ashy. fingers …Read more

Cleansers - Pond's - Luminous Clean Wet Towelettes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2015

Ponds wipes are my favorite wipes for makeup removing of all I tried and the Luminous line is the best. It is less strongly scented than the Evening Soothe line and leaves my skin a bit more hydrated than the Original formula. It removes all my makeup without leaving my face feeling stripped or filmy. Perfect for when I'm too lazy to wash my face after a late night out so I keep them by …Read more

Lip Treatments - LUSH - The Kiss Lip Scrub

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2015

The Kiss is a new Valentine's themed version - it is pink with candy sprinkles and hearts mixed in. It has a sweet salty taste - like taffy. The sugar is so pink it stains your lips just a little and leaves a slight shimmer. The little red candy hearts are kinda stupid - they don't scrub or dissolve - they just get in the way. Otherwise, this scrub is nice. Just as effective at …Read more
