Beauty Product Reviews
I had been looking for a moisturizer that better suits the specific needs of my skin, which is pretty sensitive. After a bit of research on Beautylish, I thought this looked like something that would work well for me so I decided to give it a shot and I'm so glad I did! It feels lightweight yet it's effective and gets your skin hydrated, has no fragrance, and works great as a makeup primer too!
I've been having an issue with enlarged pores and I've been trying everything. Seriously, if it says anything about minimizing the appearance of pores, you bet I'm gonna buy it. Unfortunately, nothing has really worked.
I've been using this product for about a month now and haven't noticed too much of a difference in the appearance of my pores. However, I have taken to just using this on days that I don't want to wear foundation because it does make my skin look and feel slightly smoother and it keeps my face from getting oily all day! So while I bought this product with one specific goal in mind, I ended up loving it for something entirely different.
This product is a total game changer. I feel like I always struggled a bit to get the perfect brow until I tried this. The creamy consistency of this product applied with an angle brush makes it very easy to just glide it right on in the perfect shape! Once it's on, it really stays put. It doesn't fade or smudge at all throughout the day. The $18 price tag really isn't bad either considering how long one jar lasts me. All is all, this stuff is worth it! It's become a staple in my everyday makeup routine.
A new favorite!
I received the 100ml size as a gift when I purchased the Sebium Pore Refiner and I have to say I'm incredibly impressed. I was amazed at what little effort it took and how quickly it took off my makeup, yet it was so gentle for how effective it is. I have pretty sensitive skin and this left me feeling fresh and clean with absolutely no irritation whatsoever. This will be a permanent staple in my nightly routine from now on!
Where has this stuff been all my life?!
I fell in LOVE this CC Cream when I was given a sample at Sephora a while back, and now nothing else compares! It's easy to apply and very long lasting, but the best part is how it makes my skin look / feel. It feels light like a BB or CC cream but has the buildable coverage of a foundation. Plus, it makes my skin look so bright and healthy!
I decided to give this a try since I was looking for a new cheaper brush cleaner than the one I'd been using and I was intrigued by the great prices of this brand and the great reviews it has on here. Those great reviews were no exaggeration, this is by far the best brush cleaner I've used! After one spray onto the brush, you can see the color of the makeup fade right away. You barely have to use any to thoroughly clean your brush, which helps it last for quite some time. It also makes cleaning much faster and the drying time is cut down by a lot. I am so happy I gave this stuff a shot, this is my new go to brush cleaner!
Just didn't do it for me.
I received these in my Influenster Spring Vox Box and I finally got a chance to try them out. Although I was excited and had high hopes, I was a little disappointed. The designs are absolutely gorgeous and some are really intricate (like the ones that were sent to me) and there is a huge variety to choose from, but I found that they easily snapped off during normal daily acitivities. Things like rummaging through your bag or typing, not even strenuous activities, would snap them off my fingers. I believe it was just that the shapes of them didn't work so well for my fingers, therefore making it a bit of a miss for me. They're easy to use, they look and feel like they are very good quality, but just didn't fit right on me. Although they looked impressive, I wouldn't purchase them. :(
I had been interested in BB Creams because I liked the idea and concept of them, but the western ones I've tried, seemed like they were missing the mark for me. I also had trouble finding any that were light enough for my skin tone. So I was really interested in trying a Korean BB Cream and after researching and reading a few reviews, I thought that this one would be worth trying first. When first squeezing it out of the tube, it's a bit thicker than the BB Creams I've tried before, which is nice, and you need less product to cover your entire face. It's definitely for fair skin tones and this BB cream has a light peachy scent to it, which personally, I like. It has pretty sheer coverage, like most other bb creams, but it's enough for my liking. It also feels very light on your face. It can make my skin feel a little oily throughout the day so, I find it's really effective to use a bit of e.l.f.'s High Definition Powder after applying the BB cream. All in all, I'm very happy with this BB Cream and definitely prefer it to the other brands that I've tried without even having to think about it.

I was a little nervous about trying out this lipstick since some people had told me that Lime Crime lipsticks had a weird texture, were "goopy", and / or didn't last long, particularly the unconventional colors, not to mention the mixed reviews about the Lime Crime brand in general. But when it arrived, I was really pleasantly surprised and my optimism was proved to be correct. Not only did this lipstick apply really smooth and easily, it didn't take much to make the color show up a very opaque light purple. It lasted a while too! I'm definitely happy with this purchase and my satisfaction with Airborne Unicorn has definitely convinced me to purchase more Lime Crime lipsticks in the future! :)
I held off on buying this palette for so long because I'm much more of a vibrant, bright eyeshadow person and don't often wear neutrals, and I actually was put off by all the hype. I truly didn't believe it lived up to what everyone was making it out to be, there was no possible way. But I decided to give it a try and see what all the hype was about, and lo and behold, it's AMAZING. Each shade on it's own is beautiful and there are so many endless combinations you could do with this palette. The shadows are extremely high quality, very pigmented, and go on so smoothly. It truly surpassed my expectations and I've honestly used it every day since getting it. I'm in love!
I have the same review but with photos and swatches, etc. on my blog. :) http://fevertwin.blogspot.com/2013/...
