Review for Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation - 1 week, 3 days ago
I know everyone loves this foundation but I can't say I am a member of it's fan club. I have now tried it 5-6 times and I just don't get the hype. It does live up it's full coverage promise. It covers all redness and flaws without needing  layering. My issue is that it draws serious attention to my pores, making them appear even larger. It also moves around and breaks up on my face after only a short time. I have a very hard time finding foundations that I love so I very well may be the issue here. But this goes straight to the 'No' pile for me.

Review for Jouer Long-Wear Lip Topper - 1 week, 3 days ago
I love the Jouer lip toppers and rotate between their new St Tropez shade and my beloved Skinny Dip. The smell is a heavenly vanilla cupcake confection, the formula is light and whipped with little flecks of glitter/sparkle. These look gorgeous in the tube and on the lips. My only quarrel with Jouer is that they have horrible customer service. I don't like giving my money to a company that doesn't put customers first. Your customer service and products should match, in this case the products far outshine the service.

Review for Juvia's Place The Nubian Palette - 1 week, 3 days ago
Review for: Juvias place
After seeing much hype for this company and their palettes I finally caved and purchased this one. I was very drawn to the beautiful warm mattes and shimmery metallics. First of all this palette is very affordable, but you do get what you pay for as far as packaging. It's made of a standard cardboard material, with no mirror. Which really doesn't bother me, as I seldom ever use a palette mirror anyway. My only gripe is the outside case is very hard to get clean once you get a smudge on it.  The shades all swatch beautifully and are very pigmented. Once I wore them on my eyes I still really liked the shadows, but I found certain ones more difficult to blend than others. I had to put in a little extra work on them. I also found using my finger (or a brush with MAC's Fix+) helped to really make the shimmers pop. If you're looking for an affordable every day neutrals palette that you can definitely take to the next level, then this is it.

Review for Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara - 1 week, 3 days ago
Review for: Givenchy Noir Interdit
I received Givenchy complimentary for review purposes by Influenster and was thrilled to get something from one of my favorite luxury brands. I don't try many new mascaras so I was anxious to give this a go. The angled brush was intriguing to me, and IMO it's one of those things you are either gonna love or hate. I personally found it difficult to use and a tad on the gimmicky side. The entire time I had the brush popped out I felt like I might jab my eye out with the large brush. Once I popped it back into it's regular state I liked it much better. The wand/brush lifted my lashes and gave them a nice voluminous look. The formula wore well, no smudging or flaking. I do wish it had been one of those "OMG!" products, but sadly it just kinda falls in the mediocre pile for me. It isn't terrible, but it's not mind-blowing either. I will say I loved the packaging, very high end, sleek, and tasteful. Looks like I will be sticking to my holy grail Roller Lash/L'oreal Telescopic combo for now.

Review for Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask - 1 week, 3 days ago
I love Charlotte Tilbury and I love face masks, so I thought I would adore this product. Sadly, I don't get what all the hype is about.  Yes it fits well and isn't saturated in product, but it also did NOTHING for my skin. I wore it 15-20 minutes and massaged it as instructed thinking when I removed it my skin would feel amazing. All it felt was filmy and stinky. The mask feels like it's literally doing nothing the entire you have it on, but once you remove it you're left with a thick texture gel like substance that smells of cooking grease. For the price and 3 wears I was hoping to fall in love with this mask, and I am truly shocked so many others rave about it. My skin didn't look or feel any different after wearing this it. Total disappointment and waste of money for me.

Review for up & up Pore Cleansing Strips - 14 count - 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Review for: Up
After being continuously letdown by both the price and results of Bioré, I decided to give these a try. I am not opposed to off-brands and for double the amount of strips for $2 less than than the name brand, I figured it was worth taking a chance. Well I didn't think I could be more disappointed than I was in Bioré, until I tried these. The most important factor here is these do NOT stick. It doesn't matter how damp your face is or how much you press on them. They just don't stick, especially to the sides/cheek areas. Then there's the issue with the sizing. Most of  us don't have a pore issue only on our noses, but our cheeks too. These are so short that you can forget about reaching your cheek area at all. At least with Bioré you get a little coverage in that area, but it's not gonna happen with these. As much as I feel Bioré is often a total waste of money, they still have these duds beat like a drum.

Review for Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation - 1 month, 2 weeks ago
After seeing so much hype for this foundation I had to give it a try. Now I will admit when it comes to foundations, I tend to be a high end snob. But when something is constantly raved about AND affordable I gotta give it a try. While I didn't hate this foundation, I also did not love it. First of all it is more medium coverage than full. So if you are like me and want a full face, then you will have to build this. Even after putting on 2 layers I could still see my redness peeking through. I have tried it on it's own and mixed with other higher end formulas and the results have been about the same. It wears pretty well for about 4-5 hours then the breaking down starts to happen. I had a lot of separation in my t-zone, especially caking around my nose. It exposed my pores more than hid them, which is a big let down. I have oily skin and this foundation seemed to accentuate that. I was very shiny only after a few hours. I really wanted to love this, as I would like to find another affordable foundation that can live up to L'oreal's Infallible Matte, but sadly this one by Wet n Wild is not it.

Review for Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Magic Cream - 1 month, 2 weeks ago
I am surprised by how many good reviews this product has, as it was so very disappointing to me. As much as I love Charlotte's work as an artists, and adore her lipsticks, I was so let down by this cream. First of all if you have sensitive skin/eyes BEWARE. This formula set my eyes on fire. I didn't even get the product anywhere near the inside of my eyes. Just around the perimeter as instructed. It irritated my eyes so badly I had to flush them out several times. As for the reaction on my skin, I found the product to leave a kind of heavy/sicky feeling. I could feel it on my face, which I do not like. I also couldn't tell it did anything for my skin other than make my eyes feel like they were gonna burn out of my head. Thank heavens I only used this in samples and didn't purchase the big jar.

Review for Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo - 1 month, 2 weeks ago
This dry shampoo stands up against higher end brands. It gets the job done and is affordable. I would say yu can go at least 2 days without washing with this product. I personally prefer it for giving my hair some texture and lift.  I do wish I had known about the unscented version, as the original is a bit smelly.

Review for Smashbox Spotlight Palette - 2 months ago
I really enjoy both Casey and Smashbox so I was hoping to love these palettes, unfortunately that's not the case. First of all I will say the pancaking is very pretty and appealing. Also, Casey is one of the few Youtubers at this point in the game that has remained down to earth and likable. There's no diva vibe coming from her, so seeing her get a big collab like this made me very happy for her. The products themselves are very 'meh' to me. I went in with lower expectations I'm not gonna lie. Smashbox is not known for making highlighters, so that in itself had me a little concerned. Now I am a girl who likes a major POP with highlighters, if I am buying a high end product I want to be able to really see the results. I found the pigmentation in these very faint in comparison to other collabs and highlighters. They give off a subtle glow but that's it. There's definitely no 'wow' moment  with this formula. I also found them pretty chalky/powdery for a highlighter. It pains me to say that because again, I like both the brand and Casey so much, but these are a pass for me.
