Dani C.'s Beauty Product Reviews
I finally found a cleansing wipe that does not irritate my skin! Even some of the "natural" and "gentle" wipes that they say are for sensitive skin would still make my face sting and make it all red. These do not! They do not sting at all. Now, I usually rinse my face or wash it after I use these, but that could be more of paranoia and my sensitive skin. Perfect for the gym too. Highly recommend if you have sensitive skin.
I was hesitating getting this palette because I was afraid I wouldn't use it enough to be worth the money. Wrong. I love it. I think it's a great palette! And it's my first time with Urban Decay shadows and they are amazing! I chose this palette over the Naked 1 palette because I felt the colors suited my skin tone more, but I would like to try the Naked palette too...just because. Each of the shadows compliment each other so well, no clashing! And the staying power and pigmentation is just beautiful. Definitely would recommend to someone or give as a gift. It's the one palette you can't go wrong with!
I like this palette, but it's not my favorite. I do like the matte shades, but it's just not for me. I find that I don't use this palette on it's own but tend to use each shade to help mellow out some of my other eye shadows. It's still a great palette, and I love that it's small. If need be, I can absolutely create a good eye look, but a lot of the lighter shades don't show up that well for me or look a tad chalky on my skin. If you are trying to find new palettes and are building up your collection, then i would say go for it. If you have a ton of other stuff, then I would say hold off.
I have very sensitive skin and usually liquid foundations do not agree with me. In the summer I tend to use mineral powder foundations, but since the drier weather in winter, I needed something more moisturizing. This stuff is AMAZING. I have tried several tinted moisturizers and some foundations, but this does not bother my skin at all! No breakouts, irritations, or dryness. And I love the look and the coverage. I usually only need something to even my skin tone and get rid of redness and this does just that. If you have blemishes or dark spots, it does not cover those very well, but it is buildable. I have never been able to wear a liquid foundation everyday and this one I can (and do!). The finish isn't overly dewy, but it's not matte. It's buildable too in areas that you might need it. I have tried applying this with a few different brushes, but it's much more natural when I apply with my fingers which is the only way I apply it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs a lighter weight foundation and has sensitive skin. Love it!!
Go to WP
I'm a little surprised people didn't like this mascara. I love it. It's my go to on a night out! I think the formula goes on fairly smoothly and lasts all night and all day. I've never had a problem with it smudging or coming off like some other formulas. Although it's more subtle than I wanted it to be, I am able to build it up a little. If you want something that is more dramatic, this isn't it, but it's a solid WP mascara that gives me enough boost for casual night outs and the like. It can clump a little, but most WP formulas do that with me. I would recommend it. I was surprised that I keep reaching for it.
Replacement for Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector
I was sad when Maybelline discontinue the Double Face Perfector concealer. I had used that almost everyday, even though I hated that the concealer portion was so small. BUT, I decided to try the Superstay 24HR secretly hoping it was similar since it was the same company. And yay! I was rewarded. I like that it's not too thick and it definitely does stay on all day. Probably better than my previous. A little goes a LONG way - sometimes if I put too much of a dab on, it takes forever to blend in, but it will stay put once it is. Definitely another keeper.
I was hesitant about trying this mascara and not really sure why. I'm not usually a fan of the plastic applicator brushes, but I really liked this mascara. It is very smooth and the brush is amazing. It really does grab every lash (and I have short stick straight lashes). It separates nicely and lasts relatively through the day. My only gripe? The smell. It has a really strong fragrance (sort of like Lancome mascaras). I'm not a huge fan of that, but I like it enough to get over it. Definitely recommend a try!
I love this blush in Exposed. Perfect subtle shade for a blush! It works so well for when I go to work and need just a little hint of color. And it lasts all day. Not quite dramatic enough for nighttime, but sometimes I can build it up enough. I also have it in Bliss which I do like that color too. Bliss is very pigmented though and I have to be careful with how much I put on. But I would definitely recommend this! I just realized I've been using this almost everyday.
Oh, how I love thee. I have had a bad time finding a good bronzer since most come off slightly pinkish/red on my skin tone. But this has a yellowish undertone that works well for me. I love that it's matte too. I use it for contouring but I mainly use it place of blush to give a slightly tan look....especially now that spring and summer are arriving! Not too thrilled with the brush, but it works. But I also use very little of it - it's easy for me to overdo on this. Other than that, I use it almost everyday!
I am not usually a fan of waterproof mascaras (well, maybe 1 from Lancome). However, I like how this went onto my lashes. Wasn't dry or clumpy and went on very smoothly. However, you need to build it. It's more subtle than the name lends to, but it gives a nice full effect. It does tend to smudge late in the day (after 12 hr day) but I do also have oily skin, etc. It's a solid performer and I would recommend that you try it!
