This primer is really nice: smooth, easy to apply, a little bit goes a long way. It made my skin feel really hydrated as well, and paired nicely with the liquid foundation.

I LOVE this contour crayon! I don’t wear a lot of makeup in my daily routine, but this is excellent for the workplace because it’s subtle. It is easy to apply, is long lasting, and makes my lips look fuller... giving my look a more sophisticated angle. My only wish is that it had some sort of sharpener so that the end of the crayon doesn’t dull. Overall a fun and great product, though! I will be using this until it runs out!
Review for 7th Heaven Charcoal Peel-Off Mask - 8 months, 3 weeks ago

I enjoyed this charcoal mask because it was easy to apply and peel off, unlike other charcoal masks I’ve tried. I wasn’t sure how effective it was, but it didn’t do any visible harm to my skin so that’s good. I would consider using this again in the future to see if I can detect signs that it works.
Review for Maybelline Fit Me® Dewy + Smooth Foundation - 8 months, 3 weeks ago

Review for: Ivory more...
I got to try this new product thanks to a complimentary sample from a Maybelline campaign through Influenster. This #FitMeDewy foundation certainly lives up to its name. It made my face look quite youthful and “dewy,” but unfortunately I have naturally oily skin so my face looked progressively “dewier” aka oily as the day went on. It is decently long lasting, but not as long as my go-to liquid foundation. It probably works well for people with normal or dry skin, but definitely not for those with oily skin: it is very thin when applied so it doesn’t really cover up any blemishes you may have. I wish it had a pump or something, because it was really difficult to assess how much I needed when I was pouring it out onto my cosmetic sponge. I wasted some of it on accident because I put too much on the sponge.
Review for fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 - 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I apply this lip treatment every day, and it is part of my regular makeup routine. It keeps my lips hydrated and offers some light color that makes my everyday makeup more polished. It’s not sticky, doesn’t rub off easily, and smells amazing! It is by far one of the most effective hydrating lip treatments I’ve come across, and I plan to use it for a very long time.
Review for ARTISTRY Light Up Lip Gloss - 9 months, 3 weeks ago

I love this lipgloss! It comes in a variety of shades that can range from neutral to bold. It can be worn to the office or a night out on the town. It also goes over lipstick easily if you want to give your lips a little extra shine and sparkle. The peppermint oil gives your lips a nice tingle and keeps them hydrated. The light up wand and mirror on the bottle are ingenious, as they make application easy wherever you go!

These are also really great gifts—my friends have always been very excited when they’ve received one of these!
Review for Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pearl Primer - 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I’m not entirely sure what the science behind this is, but somehow my skin always looks smooth and flawless when I put this on before my makeup. This product has a great texture and smell that leave my face feeling soft and looking blemish-free. It’s also really easy to apply, and it’s a bargain since a little bit goes a long way. As a woman with periodic breakouts, this product is a staple for me!

If you want to give it a shot and see what the buzz is all about, I suggest you get the mini size—it will last you at least a week or so and will give you enough time to decide if you want to use it long term.
Review for Bioré Baking Soda Acne Scrub - 10 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Finally something for young women who still struggle with breakouts! This is the best cleanser I’ve ever used! As someone who has had an on-again, off-again battle with acne for 11 years, I’ve tried almost every cleanser out there. I love this one for many reasons. It’s highly effective, and I can use it as little or as frequently as I need to depending on how my face is looking/feeling. I typically use it twice per day but others may not need to use it this often. That said, it’s great for both oily and combination skin, and I’ve noticed that it dramatically reduces breakouts. Do note though that, like all facial products, you typically won’t see visible effects for at least 1 week after initial use. It’s also pretty effective in removing my makeup at the end of the day, too—An added bonus. Furthermore, it smells nice but neutral, is very affordable, and does not contain ingredients that bleach your towels (unlike many other acne cleansers and topical creams).

The only downside is that it can be very drying, especially on the nose. For this reason I always apply a generous amount of oil free facial moisturizer after washing my face with this product. That said, this cleanser is a staple and shining star in my skin routine!
Review for Moroccanoil® Volumizing Mousse - 10 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I like this mousse because it smoothes my hair, doesn’t make my hair look greasy, smells nice but neutral, and a little bit of it goes a long way. However, it doesn’t exactly volumize my hair. It could be because my hair is naturally curly and has a decent amount of volume as is.
