Review for RCMA No Color Powder - 7 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I bought this on EBay after researching reviews on the best affordable setting powders online. I've tried other setting powders, and I HATED them all. They were all grainy and made my skin look awful. This stuff though- it's so finely milled that it makes my skin look airbrushed. It actually blurs out quite a bit of my imperfections. This setting powder is matte, and it does seem to be slightly more white than it is translucent. I actually like this though, specifically to lighten up and carve out the bottom of my contour. If you go over it with a powder brush to brush off the excess, the powder pretty much goes translucent. I hated the shaker/spice bottle packaging (if you try to use it this way, it'll get EVERYWHERE), so I ordered a little jar from Ebay to put it in. I pick up some product with my brush or beauty sponge, and I tap the excess into the empty jar cap and apply it. I've found that using a VERY lightly dampened beauty sponge is the best way to apply this product to my T-zone and under eyes. It gives a totally seamless finish! Another thing I like about this is if I do happen to get it on my clothing it wipes right off, even on black pants! The setting powder keeps my t-zone looking great all day without the need to reapply. I bought this on Ebay for around $7, and I anticipate the amount of product in the bottle lasting me 6 months to a year easily. This is definitely my ride-or-die setting powder!

Review for The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution - 7 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Let me start off by saying that I have never found a product that has really made a difference in clearing my acne. I have oily skin, and my face ALWAYS has a few-many blemishes on it at all times. Prior to using this product, I had been using a moisturizer and some other skincare products with hydrating/exfoliating acids in them, so I was pretty confident that my skin would be able to handle this. Once you apply it to your skin it does tingle/burn a little bit, especially if you have acne. To be honest, I like the tingling sensation and it doesn't bother me one bit! I don't think this would be the best thing to use for people with sensitive skin. I use this nearly every night after I take off my makeup. I apply it with a cotton round to my entire face and neck with the exception of my eye area. With every other toner I've used, my face has felt really dry after I've applied it. Surprisingly, I don't even need to apply a moisturizer after I use this. My face feels baby soft and hydrated! I've been using this product for about a month now. I've seen a dramatic difference in the texture of my skin, a decrease in redness/acne scarring, and less issues with breakouts than I have ever had since I was very young. Over time, this has decreased the frequency and severity of my breakouts and has helped to speed up the healing time of the breakouts I do have. My makeup applies much smoother and looks much better on my skin than before I started using this product. When a breakout develops throughout the day and I apply this after I remove my makeup, within an hour or so the redness of the acne decreases significantly. I do not use any other acids on the days that I use this product (as advised on the bottle). Once weekly I use the The Ordinary AHA + BHA 2% Peeling Solution as well, which is another fantastic product. The packaging is minimalist, beautiful, and makes the toning solution easy to dispense onto the cotton round. The affordability of these products can't be beat with how effective they are. I will definitely repurchase! This is a staple in my skincare routine and I can't imagine it ever being replaced. The only con about this brand is that their products sell out fast, so you need to snag them as soon as they come back in stock. Buying in multiples is smart and easy with how affordable they are. I would highly recommend this product!

Review for Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Collection Palette - 8 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
This is one of my favorite eye shadow palletes of all time! The pigmentation is outstanding. The metallic shades are drop-dead gorgeous. Even when I use a different pallete for the matte shades of my look, I almost always reach for the metallic shades in this pallete to complete my look. The shadows smell like peach, which I love! The packaging is beautiful, and I love the heaviness of it. The formulas are ultra-smooth and blendable, and I never get any fall out when applying the shadows to my eyes. The shades in this pallete compliment one another perfectly. The shade range in this pallete is very unique in my opinion, and the shades compliment my skin tone/eye color really well. This pallete is a staple in my eyeshadow collection and definitely isn't going anywhere! I just wish I could purchase the shade "luscious" individually because I use it so often!

Review for: Papa Don't Peach (spiced peach) more...
I absolutely love this gloss! Too faced makes excellent glosses anyway, so when I saw this product I HAD to purchase it! The gloss smells like peaches! The formula is pretty pigmented and is as smooth as silk. A lot of times lip gloss will make my lips feel great after the initial application, but will slowly dry my lips out as the day goes on. I was surprised to find that this formula hydrated my lips and improved the texture even after a few hours of wear. The packaging is adorable and the labeling doesn't rub off when sitting in your makeup bag or purse (some people don't care, but this is a huge plus for me!). The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars and not 5 is that sometimes when I apply it without lip balm underneath, it can be a little difficult to smooth out onto the surface of my lips. The texture is a little hard to describe. It isn't tacky or sticky at all. It's thick, but it's light weight. Overall, I love this gloss and definitely see myself repurchasing!

Review for Maybelline Lash Sensational® Washable Mascara - 8 months, 1 week ago

Review for: Very Black more...
I purchased this mascara because I was trying to find a good drugstore mascara to use instead of the Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint (which I thought couldn't be topped by another mascara). The Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara is my holy grail! The formula doesn't dry out quickly and the tubes last quite a while. The applicator brush separates and lengthens my lashes beautifully! The formula doesn't clump, and is easily buildable. I use this every day, and I don't anticipate ever switching! I really like Maybelline products. The only reason I gave this 4/5 stars is because if I mess up and get the mascara on my skin, it can be difficult to remove. It smears, so I have to be careful and often times will need to put some concealer over the spot where I rubbed my foundation off trying to get the mascara off my skin. It doesn't rub off on my eye lids throughout the day like a lot of other mascaras tend to do (I have super oily skin/eyelids) which is super nice! It's super long-wearing. It doesn't flake or crumble at all. I use the non-waterproof version, but it seems to me like it's pretty water resistant because it doesn't dissolve when I've cried while wearing it. Though when I want to remove it with a makeup wipe, it comes right off! It's awesome! I'm not wearing false lashes or extensions in the photo 😊Maybelline Lash Sensational® Washable Mascara

I purchased this product because I was trying to find a drugstore dupe for the Urban Decay Subversion Eyelash Primer. I never thought I'd say this- but I like the Loreal Lash Primer so much better! The formula is thinner, so it doesn't clump up on your lashes and it lengthens/separates really well. It does dry white, but that is to intensify the black pigments in the mascara you use over it. I love the plastic bristled applicator! This product lengthened and separated my lashes and made them look fantastic. I'll be buying this again! I'm so happy I found it!

Review for: Sunkissed Bronzer more...
I purchased this product attempting to find a dupe for the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that I like the Butter Bronzer SO much better than the Too Faced! It has a matte finish and it smells like coconuts. If you don't like scented products, you might want to steer clear of this bronzer though the smell is relatively mild in my opinion. This bronzer blends like a dream and looks absolutely flawless on the skin. It looked like it was going to be a little darker than it actually was when I applied it, but it was perfect. I'm totally in love with this bronzer, and I will be buying it again!

Review for: Ivory 115 more...
Overall- this is an amazing foundation and the quality is great for the price! I hate the look of super matte foundations and I prefer Demi-matte finishes. I chose the dewy finish hoping that it would be less hydrating than it actually was. It was super easy to blend out and apply with my wet makeup sponge. It has a very mild smell. And the coverage, WOW! It has fantastic coverage and looks flawless on the skin! Unfortunately this formula is really dewy and I have to touch up a lot throughout the day because of how oily my skin is. I think this formula just wasn't for me. I love the packaging- the glass bottle is heavy. I just wish it had a pump because a little goes a long way! This foundation also oxidizes slightly, so you might want to purchase two different shades to try if you're using this for the first time (one that matches perfectly and one that is a shade lighter than you are). I love Maybelline products and can't argue with the prices! I got this complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster!

Review for GLOW RECIPE Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer - 9 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
First off, if you don't like scented skincare products or the smell of watermelon candy, this is not for you! It smells like watermelon sour patch kids in my opinion (which to me is literally amazing), but the scent is very very light once you apply it to your skin. I tried a sample from Sephora and I was totally hooked. I went and bought the full size 3 days later. I normally wouldn't be able to justify spending 39$ on a facial moisturizer, but this one is totally worth it. I'm extremely acne prone and I have oily, sensitive skin. I love that this product is oil free and that I wake up with hydrated skin in the morning instead of looking like an oil slick. My skin has been getting so clear and glowy since I've started using it. I've used dozens of different high end skincare items, and this is the only thing that has given my skin the "glowy" look and really kept it hydrated. My skin has been getting increasingly softer since I've started using this. I really like that it's a mostly natural ingredient product, and that the scent is actually from real watermelon. The texture is amazing, and a little goes a long way. The packaging is absolutely GORGEOUS as well. I'm so happy I found this, and I would recommend it to anyone!
