Loose Powders - CHANEL - Poudre Universelle Libre Translucent 2

For sure, this is not meant for oily skin.

I use loose powder to set my foundation and mattify my skin during the day. When I wear the Chanel Poudre Universelle over my foundation, my skin looks very dry at first. After about an hour, my cheeks and forehead get unnaturally oily and my makeup melts off. The Nars loose powder is a million times better than this. I will keep using it …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Veluxe Pearl - Sumptuous Olive

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/30/2011

Sumptuous Olive is a pearly golden-y olive shade. I've got olive skin with strong cool undertones and dark brown eyes, and when I use this shadow it instantly brightens my skin and makes my eyes pop. For day, I'll just use it as a wash all over my eyes. For a stronger look, I'll blend a darker shade into my outer-V. Either way, it looks stunning. I find that it quite buttery and …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Diamond Shadow - Diamond Black 307

1.0

In the pan, the color is black with a ton of silver shimmer. On your eyelids, it is a messy matte black with no shimmer whatsoever. It's very difficult to apply it exactly where you want, because it gets all over the place. And blending it sheers it out into a gray. Very disappointed.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Frost - Parfait Amour

I can see why some people are giving this shadow low reviews. It's a vibrant purple, for which the pics above are a pretty accurate representation so I won't go into details describing it. Unfortunately, when applied directly unto the lids, it comes off as a sheerer dirty purple, miles away from the color in the pan. But you can easily get the bright violet to translate on your lids by …Read more

Moisturizers - Dermalogica - Active Moist

3.0

I went through a tube of this moisturizer and while it was very good, I do not think it was worth it. I have super oily skin, and this felt very light and moisturizing on my skin without every breaking me out. However, it is pretty pricey for what it is and you can get the same, if not better, results from a drugstore moisturizer.

Toners - Dermalogica - Multi-Active Toner

I am not sure what this toner is supposed to do. Dermalogica claims that it helps your moisturizer absorb better, but I do not feel any difference. It comes with a spray nozzle and feels very refreshing to spray onto your face, which is the only reason I am using up my bottle. However, it adds no value to my routine and I will not be repurchasing it.

Cleansers - Dermalogica - Special Cleansing Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2010

I switched to Dermalogica about 5 months ago and my skin has completely cleared up and looks so healthy. This cleanser is a clear fragrance-free gel that removes every last trace of makeup off my face. My makeup remover has been collecting dust on the shelf since I started using the cleanser. It does slightly dry my face, but that doesn't bother me since I moisturize my skin afterwards. It …Read more

Eyeliner - RIMMEL - Flash Liner

Nov/13/2010

I must say, I am shocked to find some negative reviews here. This is probably the best liquid liner I have ever used. It comes in a pen form with a long, yet stiff felt tip, which makes it super easy to apply. I think this is as close to fool-proof as you can get with a liquid liner. The line is black, but not harsh (the reason I avoid liquid liners, I prefer my lines soft and smudged), and it …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Virtual Violet

2.0

Oct/23/2010

While this is a gorgeous color, a dual toned metallic violet/blue, the quality of the nail polish is the worst I have tried in a while. It's very runny and is hard not to over-apply, which end up in globs of polish on one end of the nail and bald spots on the other.The parts where I ended up with too much polish never dried and were wiped off. Pretty awful.

Tinted Moisturizer - Pixi - Illuminating Tint & Conceal

Aug/29/2010

NOTE: There seems to be two formulations for this TM, one with glitter and another without. This review is for the TM with no glitter.

Gosh, a tinted moisturizer that makes my skin look great and clears my skin?! I have oily skin that I think is a NW35 (do not like Mac foundations so I haven't checked my color in years!) and I use No. 2. The tm comes in a pretty small tube with a …
