Review for: Porcelain more...
I had wanted to try this foundation ever since I saw it on Ulta's website a few months ago. I recently picked it up to feature on my channel as part of my Drugstore First Impressions video. I am blown away by the coverage, finish, and texture of this foundation. It feels so lightweight and looks like you have nothing on your skin. It looks poreless and flawless, and on my oily skin, it lasts all day and never looks too shiny or too cakey. The downside to this foundation is that it is HEAVILY FRAGRANCED. I've tried my fair share of fragranced foundations and makeup products, but my goodness, this is ridiculous. I can smell it for an hour or two after applying it. It smells strongly of floral, and I'm pretty sure it's causing me to break out. WHY do brands put fragrance in everything? It's a top known skin irritant. No one cares what their foundation smells like, we just care how it performs. I will keep trying this foundation out, but I'm pretty sure my breakouts are due to the obscene amount of fragrance in this.

This is one of the worst products I have ever used. I bought it as part of my Drugstore First Impressions video on my channel. I typically don't like to apply any sort of primer before foundation, because I find my foundation usually looks worse. And this was no exception. It is basically lip balm. It is not matte, does not control oil, and does NOTHING for pores. It legitimately does nothing but makes your face feel greasy and makes your foundation look horrid. I returned this immediately. I paid $12 for this, but I wouldn't even spend 50 cents on it.

I have used this as an eye makeup remover for the last two years. I was intrigued because of how large the bottle is and was annoyed with how often I was repurchasing the Neutrogena brand eye makeup remover. Although this is a micellar water and can be used all over the face, my review is particularly about this product's use for removing eye makeup. If used solely for that purpose, this will last you MONTHS. It's very affordable and you don't need much to remove your eye makeup.
Review for Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray - 1 month, 1 week ago

I purchased this product right when it was originally released. After trying it out in Ulta, I immediately loved how it made my makeup look. Fast forward to now: I've gone through 5 bottles of this stuff and don't see myself stopping. The packaging is adorable, which isn't a deal maker or breaker, but definitely a plus. I like using it before makeup on days when my skin is feeling a bit dehydrated since it is mildly hydrating, but nothing too crazy (if you have dry skin, I would recommend using a moisturizing primer after this product or just using this as a setting spray). I don't notice a huge difference when this is used before my makeup, but it still feels nice on the skin.

The best part of this spray is what happens after you apply your makeup. It makes your makeup look FLAWLESS. If your face is looking a bit cakey or powdery, one spritz of this spray and that's gone and what's left is a gorgeous, airbrushed look. My makeup has never looked better than it does when I use this. I tell everyone I know about this spray because it's THAT good!

Review for: Other more...
For starters, I wear shade 95W which is a new addition to their shade range. I want to talk first about their shade range because I feel like it could use some work. They have nearly 50 shades in this foundation, which at first could seem amazing. However, no matter whether I'm my natural skin color or have a tan, there is not a shade that matches me. I naturally have fair-light warm toned skin, and my closest foundation match is NARS Gobi (it matches me PERFECTLY). So I got very excited when I saw Lancome added a fair warm shade to their lineup, because I hear nothing but incredible things about this foundation. So I purchased it, and it's too light. The undertone is perfect, but it looks nearly white on me. However, the next warm shade is shade 160W, which is far too dark. I wish they would work on their fair to light shade range because there is much room for improvement.

As far as the formula, it is absolutely gorgeous and more than lives up to the hype surrounding it. It is lightweight and natural looking, while still providing decent coverage (medium to buildable full coverage). Unlike other matte finish foundations I have tried, this one does not look dry on any skin type. It also has a very smoothing effect and does not sink into my pores like other foundations tend to do. It lasts a very long time and helps control oil throughout the day. 

I would highly recommend this foundation!

Review for Shiseido Eyelash Curler - 7 months, 2 weeks ago

I bought this after my Tarte lash curler was underwhelming. I’ve heard wonderful things about this eyelash curler ever since I started watching YouTube beauty videos over a decade ago, and was excited to finally try it. I will say it feels really cheap compared to my Tarte curler, and I’m confused how it’s worth $20 when it feels so cheaply made. The pad inside is nice and allows for a nice curl, which is the most important part. But the hefty price tag for a lash curler is what dropped my rating down to 3 stars.

Review for tarte picture perfect™ eyelash curler - 7 months, 2 weeks ago

I purchased this eyelash curler about a decade ago and LOVED it for 6 years until the spring inside broke. It did a lovely job at curling lashes, and I loved how it wasn’t flimsy like other eyelash curlers. I also enjoy the finger grips which made it easier to hold. I repurchased it about a year ago, and it’s not the same. The pad inside is too squishy and doesn’t do much in regards to curling my lashes which is really the whole point. It does still have the spring and finger grips, so for design, it’s still superior to other brands. I just wish the pads inside were better.

Review for Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil - 7 months, 2 weeks ago

I got this because I got a lip lacquer from another brand that was bleeding outside my lip line and could not find a corresponding lip liner. I find this pencil doesn’t do much to help the color stay in place, but it does help fill in any lip lines for a smoother application, which is why i still gave it 2 stars. I feel like there are other brands that do this type of product better, so I would not recommend this pencil.

Review for: 1993 more...
A really lovely pencil with an impressive range of shades! For starters, I love how it’s a standard pencil rather than a twist up, and how the packaging matching the color inside. Also, lots of the colors have corresponding names to their lipstick counterparts, which makes it easy to match your liner to your lip color. I find they are a bit creamier than my ideal lip pencil texture, which causes them to move around a bit when I apply a gloss on top, but i don’t find they move outside the lip line throughout the day. You can’t go wrong with this pencil.

Fun tip: UD uses the same formula for their eye and lip liners, so if you want a more fun color, use one of their eyeliners!
