Concealers - L'Oreal Paris - Visible Lift Serum Age-Reversing Concealer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/17/2013

I wanted a backup concealer to keep in my purse and needed it to be fairly cheap and pretty brainless to put on (ie. no complicated brushes or detailed steps). My mainstays are Cle de Peau and the Bobbi Brown corrector/concealer duo, but they aren't things that can be applied in your rearview mirror.

This L'Oreal click pen looked interesting, as this type of package usually …

Liquid - SHISEIDO - Perfect Refining Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2012

Shiseido makes some of the silkiest, most finely milled foundations out there. Perfect Refining Foundation is my favorite foundation right now. I always wished there was a less greasy, non-high SPF version of the sun foundation that comes in the turquoise bottle that looks like their sunscreen. Well, Perfect Refining Foundation is pretty close. It's very liquify and you need to shake the …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Colorburst in Bellini

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2012

I keep looking for a cheaper alternative to Bobbi Brown Petal lip gloss, and Bellini looked like a possibility. It's such a pretty peachy pink with a little gold shimmer in the tube, but is not so pigmented on the lips. Staying power is ok, not like the thicker MAC or Bobbi Brown glosses. But it's nice to have a cheap thrill sometime, and on sale at the drugstore it was still worth it …Read more

Crème - SHISEIDO - Hydro-Liquid Compact

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/10/2012

This is a great foundation for travelling, as it's a cream, but looks really natural and feels light - with sort of a eucalyptus scent. I use the Shiseido foundation brush, which creates a more subtle finish than the sponge. Now... on to the case. WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE SO BIG? I really wish this was a square case with the sponge underneath, like Mac Studiofix or like the Perfect Smoothing …Read more

Makeup Brushes - SHISEIDO - Perfect Foundation Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/28/2012

Wow. This brush is unlike any other foundation brush on the market. I own the MAC paddle brush, 187, the Shu foundation brush, and I really didn't think I needed another. But the shape looked like it would be great for stippling on foundation... and it doesn't disappoint. The bezel is cylindrical, with densely packed synthetic hairs. And it's less than an inch across, which helps …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Essence of Beauty - Citrus Coconut Body Lotion

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/09/2012

Wow. I received a sample packet of this lotion and I didn't have high expectations. I thought it would be like Bath and Body Works lotions, overly perfumed and full of mineral oil. Surprisingly, it smells rather like a fresh coconut, and the has no mineral oil or petrolatum, but cetyl alcohol, avocado oil and shea butter. It's rather a thin consistency, so it's not the cream for …Read more

Mascara - Unlisted Brand - Kirkland Signature

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/21/2012

I bought this in 2012 and this must definitely be a different formula than was previously reviewed. I love this mascara. My HG mascara is Chanel Inimitable, and nothing else has ever come close. Not Definicils, not Lash Blast, not anything. This Kirkland Borghese mascara is pretty darn close. I only wish it had the spike rubber wand instead of the traditional brush kind. But when it's 2 for …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2012

I'm surprised at the bad reviews on this mascara. Usually, I stick with Chanel Inimitable or a Shiseido, because I love a really smooth mascara that doesn't clump or smear. But, those are ... expensive. Double Extend isn't cheap, but at $10 it looked interesting with the attached primer. Surprisingly, I really like it! No clumps or smears. Of course, I apply slowly and carefully …Read more

Crème - Senna - Slipcover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2010

I think I really might have found my HG... Like the Senna website states, this is a cream to powder foundation. I applied it with a sponge, and it is not as heavy and creamy as a stick foundation such as Bobbi Brown or Shu Uemura, but has as much coverage. Unlike most creamy foundations, this sets to almost a matte finish. I have a lot of hyperpigmentation and acne scars, and this covered it all …Read more

Conditioner - Kiehl's - Amino Acid Conditioner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2010

First of all, I am a HUGE fan of Kiehl's Amino Acid shampoo. I'd go as far to say that it is my HG of HG shampoo. So when I went to pick up a new bottle of shampoo and the saleslady showed me this conditioner, I got sucked into buying it, too. Big mistake. The Amino Acid conditioner is very thin and watery feeling, as if it just disappears on my medium textured Asian hair. Probably …Read more
