This is a great concealer for anyone with acne scars or pimples that they would want to cover up. You only need a tiny amount to conceal any area on your face. I have oily skin and so far I have not noticed any caking when using this under my eyes. I've been using the Benefit Erase Paste for a few months now and when I purchased this I got it in a shade darker. At least thats what the sales girl matched me up with. I was pretty nervous since I thought it was too dark for my skin but it was perfect. Blends in with my skin great and helps cover up any imperfections that I have on my face. It doesn't so much brighten up my eyes like the Erase Paste but thats alright with me. I would of given this 5 stars but the price is a down fall. Retails at ULTA and Sephora for $42.
THE worst wipes I've ever tired. I bought these a couple months ago to try them out and after the first time using then I hate them. I usually use make up wipes to clean away my eyeliner/mascara that my cleaner left over and when I used these to clean my eyes it stings so bad. I don't know what it is maybe it's the smell or something in the wipes that just stings my eyes and they will instantly tear up. The smell is also very strong. It lingers on my skin and fingers all day. I must admit it is a pleasant smell but I wouldn't want it on my face all day. Also the cloth is very rough and it seems that every piece that I pull out if soaking wet. Theres like bubbles on the wipes (bubbles that you get when you rub soap into a towel). I've been using the Neutrogena wipes for years now and have never experienced anything like this. Would not repurchase.
I love anything with a matte finish and this product has been the key to my happiness lol. This primer is amazing. Keeps my shadow on all day and you really only need a tiny amount for your entire lid. I have the travel size and I know that's going to last me a while. Certain days where I don't wear shadow I would just wear this primer alone because I love the flesh tone color on my lids. I would really recommend this over the original primer from UD.
Finally! Someone has common sense and has come out with a bottom lash mascara. I have been using this everyday now for about two weeks and I absolutely love it. I give you my word that you will fall in love also. It is so easy to use and you really only need one coat to get your desired look. Usually for me when I am just using a regular mascara on my lower lashes at the end of the day I attend to get raccoon eyes. Using this I don't get dark circles around my eyes so I don't need to touch up my eye make up as much. It really does what it says on the box (long wearing formula). I love how it gives my lashes length and does not clump up. My eyes look more awake. The wand is extremely small to is it able to grab every piece of hair that a regular mascara wand can't. Retails for $10 so you can't go wrong with that.
Amazing but pricey.
I love that this is gentle enough to that I can get close to my lash line and wipe off all my eye make-up without it stinging my eyes. This works great with a q-tip and to really get in there and remove all the left over eyeliner that your cleanser wasn't able to wash away. I have the 1.7 fl oz bottle in a gift purchase that I got and it has lasted me a while. A little goes a long way so you don't need much on your cotton pad or as for me a q-tip. Once I run out of my sample size I will probably buy the full size. It is expensive but I think it is worth every penny.
Got introduced to this early last year and have been using it ever since. I love that you can use this on your body and gentle enough to use on your face. Leaves my skin feeling clean and extremely soft. This has helped me a lot with the blackheads on my nose and chin. It has completely removed 70% of the blackheads. I use this about 2-3 times a week. For me using this everyday will irritate my skin. I love the smell of this product. It has a grapefruit/lime scent to it. Smells so fresh and very calming. Bad part about this is yes, it does expire. They have this available in two different sizes so if your planning on not using this a lot I recommend buying the 4.2oz jar. I have the 4.2oz jar and it has lasted me all year. This retails for $18 the at Lush store. It does seem a little expensive but I believe it is worth every penny.
The picture below is what I have left. Sadly, whats left is already expired but remember this is the 4.2oz jar and I've had this for over a year. You don't need much unless your planning on using it all over your body. I only use this on my face and hands.
I love love love Michael Todd's powder blush in Audrey Hepburn. This has to be my favorite blush of all time. It's a gorgeous peachy pink color. Looks great with my slightly fair skin tone. This blush is really pigmented but I love to pack it on anyway haha. Nothing crazy though. The product is amazing but the packaging sucks. It's so small and feels extremely fragile. Like if I were to step on it it would break.
I went to my local ULTA last week and I saw that they were having a sale on some of the drugstore brands so I picked up one of the Revlon matte shadows just to try it out. Honestly wish that I could of gotten all the colors. This shadow is extremely pigmented. I just ran my flat eyeshadow brush it lightly and it picked up a lot of product with just a light brush through. I used this to fill in my brows the other day and it works great. The shadow does wear off easily so its best to wear a base under it. Overall I love this shadow and would definitely repurchase. Retails at ULTA for $4.99.
This is by far the coolest nail polish. I was so excited to get my hands on this polish that I purchased two bottles. One for back up just in case haha. As soon as you apply the polish onto your nail the polish starts to shatter right before your eyes. It dries really fast so waiting time is cut short. I am extremely impatient so I love that it dries instantly. Each bottle comes with it's own little instruction tab that explains how to apply the nail polish on. Really excited to see the other colors releasing later this year.
Great lipstick! It is a bit drying on the lips but thats what lip balm and gloss is for! The price is also amazing. I picked up two today at ULTA and the retail for $6.99. If you go now its buy 2 get 1 free! Amazing deal for such a great product. I am really looking forward to trying out other colors.
