I was originally interested in this palette because of all the hype. The colors are right up my alley. Neutrals, warm tones...this seemed perfect. I swatched all the colors every time I went into Ulta and waivered over whether I should finally get it. So I did. And I just don't get it. I don't understand why everyone loves this so much! The dark colors are hard and chalky. Couldn't …Read more

Sunscreen - Tarte Cosmetics - Tarteguard Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Aug/02/2017

I got a few small bottles of this various ways from Sephora. The texture is okay. Lightweight, but still kinda greasy. This did not provide protection for my face. I still got burned when I used this at the beach, even with a large amount and reapplication. I don't like the smell, or that it stays really shiny on my face. It doesn't do well under makeup in my experience either. The …Read more

I tried this after seeing so many reviews and videos praising its greatness. This did not work for me. I have combo to dry skin right now. I used Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer on my problem areas (as Karima does in her videos with this). I also set it with Laura Mercier powder. This just slid off of my face or disappeared in some areas and I only wore it for about 8 hours. Where I work is very …Read more

This was horrible for me. I don't understand the hype. I've tried so hard to make this work for me, and it just doesn't. And I know what I'm doing. It doesn't blend, it's so tacky and somehow ridiculously dry at the same time. At the end of the day, my undereyes look like crumpled up paper bags. I don't even have dry skin! I've tried all kinds of prep and …Read more

Lip Treatments - First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Lip Therapy

I have used this balm here and there over the past couple of months. Yesterday, I took it to work and used it all day during my 10 hour shift. This destroyed my lips! Peeling and flaking off and so much pain. It feels like I got sunburned. This is the only product I used all day, and it just progressively worsened the condition of my lips. It wasn't an immediate reaction (unfortunately). I …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

I have been wanting to try this for so long, but was waiting for my mascara stash to get smaller. Picked up a travel size, and I actually don't like this mascara. It flakes and smudges horribly on me! I like very dramatic volume, and this only provided some natural, slightly fluffy fullness. I will not repurchase.

I really love this night cream! My skin most definitely looks better in the mornings after I use it. My skin is smoother, more radiant, redness is calmed, marks and blemishes reduced. I don't quite like the very strong floral scent in this, but it makes my skin look so good that I ignore it. I have only ever used this from gwp jars, but if I could ever afford to splurge on it, I most …Read more

Palettes - Too Faced - White Chocolate Chip Palette

This palette is terrible. The matte shadows are dusty and the glitter ones are flaky. There is no pigmentation to be found here. Yes, the size is small, which we all expected. However, the Too Faced quality that we are all used to is not. There are no redeeming qualities here, returning.

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Superstay Better Skin Skin-Transforming Foundation SPF 15 (US version)

Oct/04/2015

I will admit, it took me a few tries to figure out how to get this to work for me. I figured out that I can't use a moisturizer under it. I just use a serum (L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector). I have combo skin, and this foundation has moisturizing properties already, so using one under the foundation was overkill. I love the serum, and it provides a great base. I also use a …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Basics

Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2015

I'm surprised that I like this palette. I bought it instead of the other Naked Basics because I have darker features (medium golden skin tone, brunette, brown eyes) and thought the shades would work better on me. The main reason I love this palette is because I can use the 2 lighter shades (either alone or mixed) as the main color on my lid and they actually brighten my eyes! Most really …Read more
