3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/19/2017

My skin in a nutshell: oily on t-zone with combo skin but dehydrated. Clear skin but there's texture/some scarring on chin, jawline and sides of face from hormonal acne. I've always been slightly darker around the mouth.

Color reference: NC37-40 (depending on the time of year)

Shade matching: Foundation in 290 (medium to tan skin with neutral olive undertones) so I …

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Face & Body Liquid Make Up ] ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

Oct/27/2015

This foundation has a wonderful finish--not too matte and not to dewy that it verges on oily-looking. It's quite natural with one layer, especially when blended on with fingers. It melds into the skin, doesn't crease and feels perfectly lightweight. Everything I would want in a foundation except.....

I'm around NC35-37 during winter and NC40 during summer but I have very …

Makeup Brushes - Bobbi Brown - Bronzer Brush

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2014

I've had this brush for at least 3 years now and it was my first bronzer brush. It wasn't until recently that I really noticed how scratchy it felt (maybe because I invested in a Suqqu cheek brush a while ago). It probably shed a few hairs every other time I've used it but it didn't used to bother me and now it just does. Having to pick the short and long hairs off my face are …Read more

Toners - Biologique Recherche - Exfoliating Lotion P50

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2014

I had originally decided to wait 3-4 months before posting a review but kept putting it off and now it's about 7 months--which is not a bad thing. Please note that I use the old P50 formula. This has been nothing short of a miracle for my skin, which has always been dominated by monthly cystic acne, clogged pores and small/medium acne all around. I remember taking a picture of my face with …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Deborah Lippmann - Flat Top Matte Topcoat

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2013

I'm a fan of DL polishes and thought the matte topcoat would be a good buy. That's a good $20 down the drain because it doesn't even work properly. How is it possible that the first nail I coated was the only one that turned matte? 45 minutes later, the remaining 9 fingers still have a shine to them PLUS bubbles. And I made sure that my nails were dry even before I put the top coat …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

I received a deluxe sample from Sephora and tried it with and without a mascara base. Without the base, it gives length but no volume. With the base, it still gives length but slightly more volume. The one major problem it had was that it bunched groups of my lashes together and made it look like I had much much less. The only nice thing about it was the brush. I think the way it was made was to …Read more

Toners - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Acne Pore Minimizer w/Sepicontrol A5

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2013

I bought the trial size of this product on the advice of MUAC's customer service. I was going to use it in conjunction with the Mandelic acid peel. The toner wasn't so drying and it had a refreshing feeling when I used it. However, I started to break out within the first week of use. I kept going for another 2 weeks because I was trying to convince myself that I was going through a …Read more
