Review for OLEHENRIKSEN Transforming Walnut Scrub - 1 month, 3 weeks ago
I stumbled across this amazing find in a TJMaxx and I could not be happier!  This exfoliator is amazing.  I use it about once a week and my skin feels and looks softer, cleaner, and clearer after using it.  I rarely find products that deliver immediate results, but I'd definitely say this is one of them.  It does have a strong scent which I find amazing but those who are sensitive to smells may not enjoy.  Oddly enough, to me it smells like sweethearts, but I do smell walnut if I pay a little more attention to the scent.  Also worth noting, the scrubbies are a bit more coarse than other exfoliators I've used, so if you have sensitive skin or prefer something milder you may not like this.  Overall, I really love this product and it has definitely earned a spot in my skincare regimen.  Definitely recommend!

Review for: Light Ivory more...
I have not been a huge Covergirl fan since my highschool days (around 10 years ago!) but lately they have been killing it!  As a foundation junkie, I was super excited when I saw promos for this.  As soon as it became available, I purchased.  Bottom line--this is really good!  Naturally it got a lot of praise for having 40 colors and a variety of undertones, but it performs well too!  It leaves a satin finish on my combo/dehyrdated skin without clinging to any dry patches or looking cakey and heavy (I prep with a good moisturizer and primer first). My pores are minimized and it stays on all day--no breaking up or fading.  It has great coverage too; I would say it's high medium and slightly buildable.  The price is great for this little powerhouse foundation, and I've definitely found a new permanent item in my collection.  I definitely recommend checking it out!

I held off on this for the longest time thinking it wouldn't be good for my combo skin. I finally purchased it though and I'm so pleased that I did! This looks so gorgeous on the skin--great, high medium coverage without looking cakey or heavy. It evens out my skin tone, conceals my redness, and helps hide my acne scarring. It has great staying power, even on my oily t-zone, and has quickly become my go-to whenever I want something that feels lightweight but looks flawless. Definitely recommend!

Review for Almay Makeup Remover + Foaming Lotion Cleanser - 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I was really excited to try this as an in-shower makeup remover. It was inexpensive and promised to be gentle, but after a few weeks of my skin becoming more and more irritated (redness, tightness, burning, breakouts), I realized that it might be this product that’s causing it. I checked the ingredients and was disappointed that alcohol was listed as the second ingredient. I tossed it and continued to use my Simple micellar cleanser and no irritation—my skin is looking and feeling better already! This cleanser does foam well and is certainly affordable, but I would not recommend based on ingredients. There are comparable products out there for around the same price that won’t wreak havoc on your skin, so definitely feel free to skip out on this one.

Review for Lipton® Refresh Iced Tea Sweet Tea K-Cups - 11 months, 1 week ago
These are so yummy!  Very rich tea flavor with just enough sugar that they're not overly sweet.  I actually think I enjoy drinking them hot rather than iced.  My only niggle is that for me personally, I don't think they're economically worth it.  I drink through one cup so fast--because it's just so good!--and therefore go through the entire box way too quickly.  However, if you have more self-control than I do and enjoy sipping your tea slowly, then I definitely think you should check these out.  So impressed with the taste--definitely recommend!

Review for: Angel Food 110N more...
This has quickly become one of my favorite foundations!  I was really excited when I first saw previews of the product, and admittedly a little skeptical of all the hype and positivity it got following release (sometimes even your favorite Youtubers can be baised towards another Youtuber/well-known beauty brand).  However, I picked it up during the VIB sale and have not regretted it since!  The coverage is amazing!!!  One pump gives me beautiful, full coverage--even when I apply with a sponge!  It doesn't get cakey or break up on my skin, although it does cling to dry patches so beware of that.  It does help blur pores and leaves a nice matte finish.  Also, as others have mentioned, it does have a very strong floral scent.  However, I only noticed this as I applied it, so it's not a huge deal for me, but if you are really sensitive to scents then it may be more irritating.  Overall, beautiful foundation.  I'm so happy I tried it and I definitely recommend it to others (although dry-skinned beauties may want to proceed with caution and have a really good pre-foundation moisturization process in place).

Review for Too Faced Peach Blur Translucent Smoothing Finishing Powder - 1 year, 3 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
Of all the items in the Peaches and Cream Collection, this was the product I was most excited for.  Promising a brightening, airbrushed finish in a lightweight finishing powder, I couldn't wait to put it on my skin.  Unfortunately, I think I'll be returning it.  I went in expecting soft luminosity, but I don't really see even the subtlest of sheens.  I also don't really think it gave a flawless airbrush finish.  The packaging is adorable, and it doesn't make my skin look bad, but I definitely don't think it's worth the $30 price tag--you can find similar products at the drugstore for way less (try Physician's Formula Youth Boosting Illuminating Face Powder or Milani Prep and Glow powder).  I would rather put the cost of this powder towards something else from this line, like the foundation, primer, loose powder, or eyeshadow palette.  Overall, would not recommend.

Other things to note:
*It's supposed to smell slightly like peaches, but I couldn't smell anything.  I didn't mind that, but if you're expecting a strong or even noticeable scent, you may be disappointed.  However, this may be good news if you hate perfumed cosmetics.

*When they say finishing powder, they mean finishing powder!  I would not recommend using this to set your foundation only because it doesn't really take away any tackiness.  However, it may work well as a setting powder on top of foundations that dry completely matte.

*There seems to be a hard pan/film on top.  It seemed like in the beginning I wasn't getting any product on my brush at all.  After a few uses, though, the top layer scraped off and the product underneath was much softer and easier to pick up with a brush.  I found that using a more dense, rather than fluffy, brush helped with product application.

Review for e.l.f. Cosmetics Instant Lift Brow Pencil - 1 year, 3 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
While I absolutely love E.L.F, I normally skip over their products in the white packaging, finding most of them to not be as good of quality as their products in the black packaging.  However, after seeing EmilyNoel83 on Youtube praise this eyebrow pencil in a recent video, I decided to give it a try.  I'm usually a pomade girl, but I like to have some pencils on hand for days when I want to switch it up.  All I can say after trying this product is, "Where have you been all my life!?"  Who would have thought that this $2 pencil would be just as good, if not better, as those higher-end pencils going for around $20!?  Needless to say, I love this thing.  It's super easy to apply, fillings your brows beautifully and adding shape and volume without looking too overdone or harsh.  While it doesn't have the micro tip like the Brow Wiz (& dupes), the tip is small enough to still create feather-like strokes; it's also pointed and self-sharpening.  The downside is that there are only three shades, but I think they may suit a majority of people.  I picked up the shade taupe, which looked really dark based on the packaging, but is actually perfect for my blonde hair.  The color is pretty much identical to the ABH pencil in the same shade name.  This has definitely become my HG brow pencil, and I cannot express enough how much I love it!  I definitely recommend!

Review for Ulta Makeup Removing Towels - 1 year, 4 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I purchased these on sale in order to have some backups for when my Sephora brand ones were dirty.  I have to say, I much prefer the Sephora makeup remover towels over these.  I don't like the smaller size of these, and I don't think they remove makeup as efficiently as the Sephora ones.  With these, I feel like I have to rub them across my face several times to get my makeup off, and even then it sometimes feels like I still have makeup lingering on my skin.  While I always cleanse my skin after using a makeup remover cloth, I feel like the Sephora ones effectively remove my makeup the first time around, and my skin feels cleaner after using them.  Overall, I'd skip these cloths from Ulta, and go with their competitor instead.
