Liquid - CLINIQUE - Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology

I don't understand the negative reviews of this foundation! I'm on my way out the door to buy a second bottle and decided to check MUA, just for kicks—so glad I didn't check before! This is a moisturizing, light coverage foundation that disappears into my skin. The color match is perfect (I'm 04). It evens tone and makes my mildly red skin look super natural and flawless. I …Read more

Cleansers - Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/09/2015

This is the best cleanser EVER. For the past several years, I've tended toward cream or milk cleansers with absolutely no foaming agents for my sensitive, easily-dehydrated skin. I never would have tried this, but a friend who works for Kiehl's sent me a care package with Ultra Facial Cleanser in it and I had run out of my usual so I started using it and haven't looked back since …Read more

Moisturizers - Avene - Hydrance Optimale Riche (Rich Hydrating Cream)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/09/2015

HG moisturizer. I'm on my second tube of this and will absolutely repurchase. Since I've started using this in August, my skin has rebalanced itself from dehydrated and somewhat crepe-y (and acne-prone--fun times) to soft and supple. It doesn't break me out at all and only requires the smallest pea size application. I've completely changed my skincare routine since the summer …Read more

Mascara - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Infused Mascara

5.0

Apr/10/2012

Fantastic every day mascara--gives me defined, darker, separated lashes with length. Not a ton of volume as others have noted, but you can certainly add layers. This is the first mascara I've used that I don't have to blot on a paper towel before applying--I apply it straight out of the tube and it gives no clumps whatsoever (or very few anyway-- a quick run through with a lash comb …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Pre de Provence - Milk Bar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2012

I've been coming back to this soap for years--since I was 19 and worked in a boutique that carried Pre de Provence soaps. It's just the loveliest, creamiest, clean smell--not cloying at all. I wish I could smell like this all the time. The soap itself lasts forever, scents your whole bathroom, and is pretty mild on the skin. I usually alternate this with a Lemon Verbena soap, also by …Read more

Powder - bareMinerals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2012

So, where to begin with this review.... Well, I've used Bare Minerals before (several years ago in my mid twenties) and loved it then, but eventually found myself lured by the promise of a slew of tinted moisturizers. I reviewed this product in Medium Beige about six years ago and have no idea what I was doing using that shade, unless I was really tan, which I rarely was since I'm from …Read more

Cleansers - Beauty Without Cruelty - Extra Gentle Cleansing Milk

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/27/2012

I've held off writing this review until I could get a solid month of use in and I have to say that I'm really impressed. I bought BWC's Extra Gentle Cleansing Milk after reading the reviews on MUA (thanks, all) and I was a bit skeptical at first. On first use, I didn't like it and was ready to return it to Whole Foods, but I tried it a few more times and fell in love …Read more

Fragrances - Monyette Paris - Monyette Paris

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/21/2012

Such a beautiful, subtle floral, but creamy scent. I only use two touches of this oil--one to my inner wrist, one to my opposite ear. Worn that way, it's gentle and understated (more than that on me makes me feel sick--it's a fine line). I'm not normally a perfume wearer at all--in fact, I don't really care for fragrances, aside from Monyette Paris. I don't wear it all …Read more

Lip Gloss - Face Stockholm - Pot Lip Gloss

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2011

I just bought a pot gloss in Crazy--it's a bright, magenta pink in the pot, but with a light touch, makes my lips look pink and healthy. Absolutely love it. Great staying power--even after it wears off it leaves a pretty stain. With a heavier hand, the color is more Debbie Gibson Electric Youth, but that's not what I'm after, so I'll stick with the barely applied approach. I …Read more

Blush - Cargo Cosmetics - Blush - Tonga

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2011

This is one of the few products I come back to again and again. As others have said, I was really disappointed when I saw the color in the pan (it's flat and brownish), but because of the myriad of excellent MUA reviews, I bought it anyway. Tonga gives what can best be described as a perfect Jane Austen cheek (think Keira Knightly as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride & Prejudice): a subtle …Read more
