Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/06/2016

Just did a review for the Skin Tint, where I said that 2 Glossier products have now become part of my 3 to 4- product almost-no-makeup face. I've done what I could to let my over-plucked brows grow out (Shiseido serum and hiding my tweezers) but they're kind of light now, as I'm going gray. I've always been a brow person, and when I was younger and into more dramatic looks I …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Glossier - Perfecting Skin Tint

Dec/06/2016

I love this stuff, and at 55 I'm certainly not a cool girl. Over the past year I've been moving towards using less and less makeup--stepping up my skincare and accepting the things I can't change, and this skin tint is just what I wanted. Maybe it's all the years of using foundation, but applying skin-colored creamy stuff still helps me feel more ready to face the world. For …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - DHC - Silky Cotton

5.0

These are great. What I love is that they don't absorb the product you're using --in my case toner--so they actually make it last longer and work better. I need fewer drops of toner to cover my face and it applies very evenly. I'm trying to use up my supply of cheap drugstore cotton pads and they are so awful in comparison. Also these would make great dollhouse pillows, lol.

BB Cream - Lioele - Dollish Cera-V CC Cream SPF34/PA++

This review is also for the Green product in the pink container---I don't know why I didn't read these reviews sooner! I was using this strictly as a color-corrector/primer, under the Lioele Triple the Solution BB--a great combo for that full-on, full-coverage, perfect kpop face but too heavy for me on most days. I have that unfortunate problem where my face is darker than my neck--my …Read more

Skincare - Face - DHC - Beauty Lift--full line

DHC really hooked me on this new product--got a catalog, liked the samples, and was in the mood to treat myself (prices were 10% off and a 20% discount on top of that, so not bad). I used DHC many years ago but hadn't seen a catalog in ages; now that I'm into the Asian product trend I was excited to try this new line.

I've been using the products 2x/day--Lotion …

Mascara - Dr. Hauschka - VOLUME Mascara!

Feb/03/2015

OK I just love this stuff and keep coming back to it after cheating. I understand the criticisms--it does smudge, and if you don't like how Hauschka products smell then you probably won't like this. I wipe the wand off well on a tissue before I apply it and use a lash comb after, and the results are natural and a bit glossy. Applied that way it's the closest I'll ever get to …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - bareMinerals - COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2015

Just got this a few minutes ago, so first impressions and then I will update in the future. Feels nice going on; I would call it a next-gen tinted moisturizer. The LM in Porcelain (I got this in Vanilla) has been an on and off staple of mine for years and this is just more "modern"--the gel texture, the dewiness, the blur effect. I put it on with my fingers, next time I'll be …Read more

Moisturizers - Olay - Age Defying Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Night Cream

Sep/07/2014

Bought this because of the enthusiastic reviews here. I use Dr. Hauschka skincare almost exclusively, but I just can't live with the Dr. H. "no night cream" rule. This is a solid product that does the job--nothing fancy but no bad effects either. Nice scent, absorbs well, my skin looks nice in the morning, no breakouts, and I think my skin is just a bit better overall--more even …Read more

BB Cream - Pond's - Luminous Finish BB+ [DISCONTINUED]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2014

This might be a good "starter" BB cream--it has the thicker texture and glow of the Asian ones and you can pick it up in the drugstore or supermarket. And a lot of people love it, I did too when I first tried it. I liked the finish and it didn't break me out. However--I could not shake the feeling that my face was dirty when I was wearing this, ugh, and it only got worse as the …Read more

Concealers - SKINFOOD - Salmon Darkcircle Concealer Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2014

As anyone who has dark circles knows there's almost nothing that can cover them completely and still look natural. First, I decanted a small amount of this into one section of a Japonesque fill-it-yourself palette, because there's so much in this jar (in fact I did this with all of my different concealers). The palette came with a tiny brush that I love, and what I do is stand back …Read more
