I was looking for a cuticle remover on Amazon and decided to give Blue Cross a shot. It had pretty good reviews along with a really great price. I'm so glad I decided to try it!
Its very watery and thin, not creamy or thick, so you need to be careful with it. One drop at a time is fine for each individual nail. My cuticles had gotten pretty bad so it took a while of squeeze out one drop, rub it in, repeat. If your cuticles are bad just be patient! Eventually they'll be gone without any pain, blood, or damage to your nails.
Because I had to use so much it left my nails feeling kind of dry. After washing my hands I rubbed some jojoba oil into them and all the dryness went away! My nails feel really good now.
This tinted moisturizer covers my freckles too much for daily wear but I like it for more formal occasions like job interviews or a friend's wedding. It does a great job evening out my skintone without looking like I'd wearing a ton of makeup, which I really like. Like others have mentioned its not particularly moisturizing by itself, but its a lot better over a regular moisturizer.
Not to sound dramatic, but this argan oil changed my life!
I saw someone recommend it as an alternative to eye creams so I decided to give it a shot. Within a week the redness I've struggled with for years all over my face (concentrated on my cheeks and chin) was almost entirely gone. I still can barely believe it! I'm so lucky I decided to try this oil before throwing hundreds of dollars away on all kinds of complicated skincare routines.
Review for: BECCA Light Chaser Highlighter Pearl Flashes Gold 0.23 oz/ 6.5 g
I've never used another Becca highlighter, but I'm in love with my Light Chaser! Pearl Flashes Gold is the absolute perfect color for my skintone. It blends in completely until I turn my head and then bam! There's the most beautiful gold highlight.
I planned to purchase a different shade, probably Opal Flashes Jade, but honestly the other Light Chaser colors just didn't impress me. It seemed like they'd be kind of weird as a highlighter so I'd suggest anyone interested in them swatch them in store and go look at the swatches in natural light before deciding which one to buy.
The price is a little steep, but to me this primer is worth it. One tube will last just about forever because it really doesn't take much. It glides on smooth and dries very quickly so I don't have to wait around for ages, which is a big plus. My eyelids get pretty oily throughout the day and Primer Potion stays put. Even if I accidentally rub my eyes a little, everything stays together better over this primer.
I'm a big fan of bright, bold colors and crazy highlight so Aurora is right up my alley, but I was surprised at how wearable some of the colors are. Eclipse, Lyra, and Luna could look very natural blended out, depending on your skintone, so I feel it can definitely work as an everyday palette even if you don't want to rock blue, green, or purple highlight to work.
The versatility of this palette is definitely my favorite part. Its safe to use on your lips and eyes so I love patting it onto my lips to transform my lipstick or plain old chapstick. It makes a wonderful eyeshadow or eyeshadow topper too! Being able to tie together my eyes, highlight, and lips with a single palette is awesome.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to trust the hype about this palette, since it seems unrealistic for something to be so universally praises, but I decided to give it a shot anyways. I'm so glad that I did!
The colors in this palette are absolutely beautiful but you need to be careful. They're very pigmented so you need to use a light hand, especially with the reds as red shadow can make you look sick if you're not careful. It look me a couple failed eyes to get the hang of the formula but it wasn't an unreasonable amount. Maybe 5 or so? There's some fallout but it wasn't too bad either. Just do your eyes before foundation/BB cream or cover your undereyes in powder to brush away when you're done.
Every color applies and blends super well, even for a novice like me. You can really tell how high quality the shadows are on the eyes; my other shadows look like they're sitting "on" the skin while MR looks like its "part" of my skin in the best way. Even just a single color that's close to my skintone looks pretty on a lazy day!
To be totally honest, the Rainbow highlighter is mostly blue/green. If you swirl it all together (or break and repress it) that's the color you'll get. I don't think this works well as a highlighter because of the heavy pigmentation of the green/blue sections, but it might work better if you only highlighted with the other colors. I use mine as the occasional eyeshadow; the teal color you get when you repress it is a beautiful shadow! My regualr rainbow one sits on my vanity and just makes me smile. Its not a very functional rainbow highlighter but I'm happy to have it!
I've never tried Wet N Wild eyeshadows before and wasn't sure what to think of the one I got. It was a gift so the colors weren't exactly what I would've picked myself but I ended up loving it. The Brownbone color in my set is the perfect regular highlighter for me and lasts all day. Its very glittery while also being pretty sheer. The blue and purple eyeshadows both performed well for me. They're the perfect pop of color!
This mascara was absolutely terrible for me. It was super wet, leading to a ton of smudging, and flaked all over my face very quickly. By the end of the day my face was covered in pieces of mascara. When I take it off, it flakes even worse. Large flakes got in my eye and every time and left them irritated.
It goes on okay sometimes but other times it was a clumpy mess for me. I enjoyed the weird brush but I really dislike it with the formula.
