Holly K.'s Beauty Product Reviews
I love this scrub
This is my favorite scrub of all time. I have a lot of dry patches and this scrub and the scrublet it comes with takes care of them. I used to have to use a scrub once a day because of how dry my skin was but with this I only have to use it 2 times a week.
I have noticed that my pores look smaller and I don't have blackheads around my nose and cheeks anymore. My face also hasn't broken out very much lately since I have been using this. This is definitely my favorite scrub of all time.
Did not work for me
I bought this because I bought a waterproof mascara by accident. Well this was the only makeup remover that my Dollar General had in stock and it was the only place that I could get to in a hurry. I bought this and I'm sad I did. It did not even touch the mascara. I tried it on my other makeup and it didn't really work for that either. Needless to say I will not try this again.
It's one of my favorite powders
I really liked this product. I bought it with the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation and it was a great combination. It made the foundation stay matte all day even in my oily T-zone. It didn't show my dry patches a lot either which makes me super happy. I always use the applicators that come with the powders because I feel like a brush applies too much. A brush also cause micro-exfoliating and makes dry skin peel up and flake. Using the applicator that comes with it eliminates that issue. The color selection is very good. I'm usually very disappointed when it comes to powders because the powder makes the foundation a color darker. Well I can't let that happen because I'm sooo pale. This powder was great because it kept the foundation the color that I needed.
I really like this mascara
This was the first mascara that I ever used so I have a soft spot for it. This mascara makes it look like there's nothing on my lashes at all. This is why I use it when I don't want to wear any eye shadow. It makes my eyelashes look great, but it doesn't look weird because I'm not wearing any other eye makeup. I do have to be careful because it's very easy to apply too much and get clumpy lashes. This mascara does last all day. It does smudge a little towards the end but most mascaras do. Overall it's a pretty good mascara.
I would definitely recommend this to other people. Especially if they wear contacts or have sensitive eyes like I do. This mascara did not irritate my eyes at all.
My favorite foundation
This is my absolute favorite foundation ever. It has a great consistency that feels great when it's applied. It covers up all of my redness, blemishes, and acne scars. It's my go to foundation for everything. If I want to dress up and look really pretty this is the foundation I use. If there's a special occasion this is what I use.
It also seems to look prettier if you put it on and let it settle before you powder it. It's like it melts into everything and makes the skin look perfect.
The coverage is medium to full which is great. I'm sure that you could get a lighter coverage if you wanted. For me the medium to full coverage is great.
I apply this with my fingers. I did not like how it looked when I applied it with a brush. It did not work well with a sponge either. It seems like using my fingers is the only thing that makes this foundation look fantastic. I just have to make sure that I blend around my neckline because I'm so used to having a brush do it for me.
The wear on this is great. I have to get up really early so this stays on from about 6 am to about 10 pm. It still looks pretty good when I'm about to take it off. I do notice that my skin is showing through the foundation on my cheeks around 9 o'clock. But other than that it looks great the rest of the time.
It looks like there isn't very much in the container and there isn't but it goes a long way. I have had mine for about 3 months and I still have quite a bit. This being said I do mix in other foundations a couple times a week. Only when I'm having really good skin days and I don't need a full coverage foundation. If I used this every single day then I think I would have ran out within a month or a month and a half.
The Colorstay foundations are my HG's.
Absolutely love these!
I got these as a stocking stuffer on Christmas and these were pretty much my favorite gift. I have really dry lips and using these made them perfect. It really hydrated them and my lips even felt great when I didn't have the gloss on. I love the texture. They're thick and creamy, but not sticky. They taste and smell great too. I love the sheer color too. I will definitely repurchase these. I'm hoping that I can find a full size in the babies though.
I really regret buying this. I know that a lot of people like it, but it just didn't work for me. It might be because I have oily lids but it creased almost as soon as I put it on. I had to use a translucent powder to try and set it and even then it still creased very quickly. I probably will not try this product again.
Kind of disappointed but still a little happy with this product.
This was the first thing that I ever tried from Hard Candy and I was really let down. I loved the colors, but it just wasn't a good product.
The stain end of this product was not good at all. It did not stain like it was supposed too. The color was exactly as it looked in the bottle but I had to reapply throughout the day. Also forget about wearing the stain and the gloss over it. If you apply the gloss you end up with a streaky mess.
The mint gloss side of this I loved! The gloss was a great texture and not sticky at all. It was very thick and shiny so a lot went a long way. It tasted really good because it was minty and it was very moisturizing. I would repurchase this product just to get the mint gloss.
