Pressed Powders - Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder

5.0

21 days ago

I agree with other reviewers that this is HG status. I have not found a smoother powder and I have tried a lot of high-end powders. This is my absolute favorite for setting concealer under my eyes with no crease or heaviness---pure magic! I have dropped two and broken them, so this is not a compact I would recommend putting in your purse, as it is a little fragile. It is pricey for the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Drunk Elephant - A-Passioni Retinol Cream

5.0

I have been using Retinol products for years. Prescription strength is just too much. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get past the flaking peeling stage, so I've shifted to OTC the highest strength products I can find. I love the following Retinol products I've tried: Green Cream, Sunday Riley, Shanee Darden. I think this might have them all beat. I am able to use this …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Ole Henriksen - Banana Bright Face Primer

I am so glad that I read the reviews here to back up my experience. This primer gets so much love on social media, I could not wait to try it. I have oily skin, so I was really only looking to use it under my eyes and in places that needed brightening. Otherwise, I look for mattifying products to combat oil.

I broke out really badly and could not narrow down what was causing it. I …

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum

First, I should say that I am that person who falls for hype and supposed "cult" products only to have them not work for me. I have a very expensive trail of other people's holy grail products that were just meh for me. When you have bad skin, unfortunately, I think you are more susceptible to claims of miracle skin products, which is unfair. I had cystic acne at age 11. When …Read more

Aug/02/2018

I could not agree more with the comments here about Allure Magazine. I have been reading this since high school, which sadly was over 20 years ago. I lived for the tips, tricks and beauty transformations. I lived in a rural area with no shopping, so I would literally cut out pictures of the beauty products featured, and save them for when I went to a city where I could shop for them. (How did …Read more

I have been searching for YEARS for a scrub to replace my beloved Pernox which was discontinued a number of years ago. I use retin-A or other products which help with cell turnover and sometimes my skin is flaky and really needs a good scrub. This my friends is an amazing product! It has a wonderful fresh orange scent, and it gets my skin clean and polished like nothing I've ever tried …Read more

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Total Control Drop Foundation

I am really surprised by this foundation. I have really hard skin to match - I have to wear a MAC combo of NC40 and C4 and that changes depending on the season. So I've almost given up finding 1 shade of any foundation that I can work with. None of our local stores have this yet, so on a whim, I ordered buff beige off eBay having no clue what the shades were. Shockingly, I nailed it …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2017

I am clearly in the minority with my review, but it may be because I have curly hair that I do not blow out straight. The diffuser attachment was a complete miss for me, and I can't dry my curls without a diffuser. (The dryer is so specialized, you can only use the magnetic attachments designed for the Dyson).

I coveted this dryer the second it came out and could not wait to …

Misc Beauty Tools - Tria Beauty - Age-Defying Laser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2014

I'm just starting week 4 with my Tria Age-defying Laser. I have had in-office laser treatments for scarring and wrinkles, but nothing too drastic. I also have never had Botox or fillers, so lasers were--and still are--a scary step for me toward skin improvement.

I'm 42 and due to severe cystic acne in my teens, 20's and into my 30's my skin was an absolute scarred …
