Review for Too Faced Born This Way Concealer - 1 day, 19 hours ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I love this concealer! Just points worth highlighting, pun intended: it smells FANTASTIC. Like coconuts and Malibu rum. MmmMMM. The coverage is good, and it's relatively heavy. It has some issue over Elf primers, but that may be because Elf's primers aren't too great. I use the cool medium shade, and it's a shade that wasn't matched to me. It's darker than my foundation, actually. But when applied to your highlight zones, it creates a healthy glow and reverse-contour kind of effect. It's a good, affordable find.

Review for e.l.f. Cosmetics Blemish Control Primer - 3 weeks, 5 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I will say this. Blemish control it advertises, blemish control it delivers. However, as a primer, it's only... okay. It does feel silky on the skin and when applying just the primer, I can see my pores blurred and the redness of my acne hasn't flared up. But, it does not bode well with some foundations, and practically all BBs. I would hope it works well with an Elf foundation. It separates when BB cream is applied over it, and starts to rub off in flaky clumps, not good. I have yet to try it with a good foundation (I use other primers), so I likely won't use this too often, unless with other Elf products.

Review for Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup - 3 weeks, 5 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I find it the perfect balance between full-coverage foundation, and a lightweight BB cream. I currently use the lightest shade, and it's a very easy application. I can use my fingers if I use less product, or a rounded foundation brush if I'm going for a full, airbrushed look. It does flatten your features, because it is a foundation. Its lightweight formula is deceiving! Treat it as any foundation and use bronzer and blush generously. That being said, it's gentle but does its job, and that's great to me! Smells light and fragrant as well. It's expensive to me; I only really use BB creams in varying levels of coverage, so this is a splurge, but it's helpful when I want a nice, flawless base for more dramatic makeup.

Review for Albolene Cleansing Concentrate Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser, Unscented, 12 oz - 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Micellar water, step aside! You've met your match. I believe I've finally found my holy grail in cleansers AND moisturizers.
I've recently been diagnosed with both contact eczema and numullar eczema, the former flaring up on patches in my skin. My dermatologist did me the favor of recommending Albolene to keep the facial eczema at bay, and after only a few days, it's been working wonders. Heck, I can even claim it worked the minute I tried it on the first day.
Albolene is a thick, waxy substance, but turns into a spreadable oil upon contact.
What makes Albolene great is that it COMPLETELY removes even stubborn makeup, depending on the quantity you use, and keeps your skin feeling supple and moisturized. It's pretty incredible how effective this product is, as it did not further irritate my eczema and the flaky skin was gone within a day or so.
The price is standard for an organic quality makeup remover, but the tub is a substantial size and will last you a while. Definitely thumbs up.

Review for Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant - 4 months, 1 week ago

Review for: Daily Microfoliant 2.6 fl oz more...
This is a good exfoliant, but let me preface the review by saying that as a mixed skin type with oily regions, but an overlying dry complexion, this would not be a product for daily use. Though it only microexfoliates, the formula tends to leave my skin, especially the upper cheek area where I get eczema, irritated and red. However, as a microexfoliant, it does leave the other parts of my face feeling soft, as a gentle peel would. It's a bit on the pricey side; I tend to avoid exfoliants with one sole purpose by using a sonic cleansing brush AND an exfoliating cleanser, so I save a bit of money there. However, this is a good high-end product to keep in stock.

Review for fresh Sugar Lip Polish - 4 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Fresh lip products are my favorite! I have always been a big fan of their tinted lip treatments, but since the release of PF's lip scrub, I have been on the hunt for lip scrubs that are equally of merit. This is one of my go-tos, especially because it's wonderfully natural and sugary! It exfoliates nicely, without drying my lips out, and it leaves them feeling soft and silky. What's best about this is that you can use this product more than the standard 3-4 times a week, because it doesn't overscrub or over-scrape your soft lips.

Oh Mario, Mario. You are lovely. This has become one of my favorite overnight masks ever! Though the effects of collagen masks are long-lasting and slow to take effect, the results of this mask make my skin feel younger almost instantly.

Review for fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
My new favorite tinted lip balms will definitely be these! I love the smooth, supple formula. They actively moisturize your lips while leaving them looking rosy and plump. My current favorite shade is Nude, but they're all such lovely varieties. The color is light, but you can build the intensity of the color by adding more layers. It's a nice way to add color to your lips without the sticky mess of glosses or lipsticks, and it's easy to apply and reapply.

Review for Conair True Glow Sonic Facial Skincare System - 4 months, 4 weeks ago

Review for: Pink more...
A quality, affordable alternative to the Clarisonic series! As an avid skincare enthusiast, I have always believed sonic cleansers are a load of bunk; sure, they exfoliate, but not much more than a regular cleanser with exfoliative beads would. Not to mention, the Clarisonic systems which are more popular cost an arm and a leg to be used a few times a week! The Conair alternative however is cheaper, leaving me feeling less guulty for using it, and provides a comfortable, smooth wash. I use it with a regular foaming cleanser when I don't use an exfoliating scrub, and it may just be me, but it does leave me feeling more refreshed afterwards. The cute carrying pouch is a plus, and if anything, the body brush does work wonders on skin after shaving. Not a bad Christmas gift for all you beauty lovers!
