Feb/23/2016

I had heard a lot of hype about this concealer and then when I was recently in Ulta I swatched it on my hand and thought the texture was amazing, so I decided to buy it. The lightest shade (Fair) was a perfect match for my skin tone; I wish they’d have a lighter shade though so that it would be more of a highlighting concealer for under my eyes. When I first applied it under my eyes it covered …Read more

Loose Powders - Coty - Airspun Loose Face Powder

Jan/26/2016

I used to use this powder many years ago but the container it was in broke, so I threw the whole thing out. I never repurchased and totally forgot about this powder. I proceeded to buy tons of high end and drugstore loose and pressed powders; I wanted to try them all. As I got older, I started noticing how my foundation and setting powder were settling into my laugh lines. I started …Read more

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

Jun/19/2015

What a nightmare this stuff was for me. The only thing I liked about this foundation was the coverage and the cool giant doe foot applicator. I went to my local Clinique counter and got color matched to the lightest shade available in the pink range (I'm an NW10-NW15 in MAC); it seemed ok in the store but we all know how the department store lighting plays tricks on you. I put it on the …Read more

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

I hate to be a Debbie Downer but after using this foundation for a week I ended up returning it. It just wasn't the magical unicorn baby it was hyped up to be, at least for me. Everyone's skin is different and this product may work for some but for me it was just a huge letdown. It took me a while to get up the nerve to try this product; the first thing that dissuaded me was the …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2014

Let me start by saying that I've never used a sponge to apply my foundation before; I've been a devout brush user. I was in Kohl's and had a coupon, saw this sponge and thought what the heck; it cost me a whopping $4.20 after the discount. Well, I am now a total and complete sponge worshipper! This sponge is amazing; I use it with my Rimmel 25 hour foundation and it blends it …Read more

Loose Powders - NARS Cosmetics - Loose Powder [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/20/2014

This powder is just okay for me, nothing great. I ran out of my favorite loose powder (Laura Mercier) and decided I wanted to try something new for the heck of it. Well, I should have stuck with what works. I’m an NC10-15 and ordered the Snow color; it matches me perfectly. I also like the packaging; typical Nars matte black container with a nice mesh sifter. That is pretty much where my …Read more

Nov/20/2013

I had high expectations for this concealer; I read reviews and watched Youtube videos about this concealer prior to purchasing. Almost all of the reviews I read and watched were glowing so I really expected this stuff to be mind blowing. So, the first time I used it I thought Really? This is not that amazing at all. The consistency is thick and somewhat greasy; it never dries/sets and stays …Read more

Sep/18/2013

Like many women obsessed with makeup, I have way too many brushes and always dreaded having to clean them. I hated cleaning them so much that I would let far more time pass between cleanings than I should have. The biggest pain in the butt brushes to clean are the ones I use for my foundation; I use a longwearing foundation, so it is a real chore to clean it out of the brushes. I have tried …Read more

Sep/04/2013

I love the idea of this foundation but I don’t actually like it. Application was a bit weird, I tried using several different brushes but it was like I was just smearing the foundation around. The best application I got was when I used my fingers. The coverage is very light but I don’t have anything to cover except for my red cheeks, so this this wasn’t a negative in my opinion. If you …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast 24 HR Mascara

Jun/19/2013

Sweet mother this stuff is awful on so many levels. I am a loyal user of Lash Blast Volume (non-waterproof) and have been using it for many years. I decided to be wild and crazy and try the 24 Hour version; what a waste of my hard earned money! My biggest gripe with this mascara is the removal process; it is like trying to remove super glue from your lashes. I have used waterproof mascara …Read more
