I received this perfume as a sample in a Sephora Play a while back. I don't normally like musky smells, but this was an absolutely beautiful smell. I got so many compliments on it, and everyone wanted to know what I was wearing. I love how the smell is very androgynous and I feel like this smell was made for me. I will eventually spring for this in full size, but the price is pretty steep.

I am not someone that conceals all over my face, as I don't normally use a full face of makeup on the daily. However, it effortlessly covers up the redness on my face, as well as some of my acne spots. It doesn't cling to any of my drier areas on my face, and it easily hides everything I want to conceal. I use this in Fair Beige, which is my skin tone for Tarte foundations, that way I can conceal my problem areas without having to put on foundation. I just pop on a bit, blend it out, and it looks like my natural skin. It does an excellent job making me look like I have perfect skin!

Review for Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder - 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I got a sample size of this setting powder in a kit that I bought from Sephora, and when this is gone, I am certainly springing for the full size! The powder is so finely-milled that it doesn't make the face look cakey at all (in fact, where most face powders make me look cakey, this does not). A little goes a long way to set your face, even with the sample size I am having a hard time finishing it off! There is a reason that this is a Holy Grail product for so many!

Review for Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray - 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
There is a reason that this setting spray is almost everyone's go-to setting spray. When I started using this, I really noticed a difference in how long my makeup was lasting on my face. Since I work in a job where I am sweating and moving around quite a bit, I need my makeup to last. With this, I can see my make up easily lasting 8+ hours depending on how much I have been sweating. I love the smell - it's very fresh - and the spray is so fine and a nice mist that sits well on the face. It sinks in through the makeup after a minute or two and you are good to go! It is WORTH IT!

Review for Murad Rapid Relief Acne Spot Treatment - 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
This is a pretty solid spot treatment that I use on some of the more irritating big pimples that I get. I find that it has helped with my cystic acne to ease the pain, the redness, and the swelling. Unfortunately, I find that there are other spot treatments that work as well, if not better, for a cheaper price point. This isn't something I reach for, but since I got this product in a kit, I am bound to use it until its gone and I will move on to something new.

Review for Murad Clarifying Cleanser - 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I really wanted this cleanser to work for me - I have heard so much amazing things about this cleanser and how it has helped so many people with acne. This product just was not good for my skin. Whenever I used it, it irritated my skin and would leave my face red, splotchy, and really dry. I gave this product a fair try of a couple weeks, but it just continued to make my face irritated and dried out.

Review for tarte Ready, Set, Glow Skincare Kit - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

I LOVE tarte products, especially their skin care. When I want to splurge on some high end skin care that won't break my bank, Tarte is my go to. I love the products that come in this kit, especially the FrXXXtion Stick and the H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer. 

The FrXXXtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser is so easy to use. You just pop off the top, swipe on a damp face, and you rub the product around. It really helps to eliminate the dry spots on your face without heavily irritating your skin. It leaves your skin feeling smooth and clean. It has a very fresh smell. 

The Lip Facial Lip Scrub  does a good job at exfoliating the lips to make them smooth and soft. It's incredibly convenient to have it in a "lipstick" like form, as you don't have to use your finger to dig out the product from a jar. It's a nice minty smell. 

The 4-1 Setting Spray is a great hydrating spray that will help keep your makeup lasting. I found the pump itself to be a little hard to spray, but overall, the product is pretty good. 

And lastly, my Holy Grail Moisturizer - the Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer! I absolutely LOVE this stuff. It smells very fresh and its a very light gel-like moisturizer. This absorbs so nicely into my skin and it makes it so soft. I find its perfect for the winter as it helps combat the dryness from the New England winters - it was the only moisturizer that actually kept my skin hydrated.

Review for Aveeno® Ultra-calming® Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

I originally tried this moisturizer to help with my skin redness. Most moisturizer has a tendency to break me out, and unfortunately, this one did break me out after about a month of use. I love how it reduced redness on my face, but it would leave my skin feeling really oily and it would break my out on my cheeks and forehead. It appeared to make my pores more clogged up as well. 

I ended up giving this one to my boyfriend, who uses it daily and absolutely love it as it doesn't flare up his eczema! It's worth a try for anyone, but for me personally, it just didn't work out.

Review for Aveeno® Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum Spf 30 - 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I bought this moisturizer while I searching to find products that will help even out my skin tone. I have combination skin - leaning more on the dry side - and this moisturizer helps lessen the appearance of texture. I have found that every time I use it, my skin looks brighter, healthier, and moisturized. The problem I have with most skin care is the possibility of irritating my skin. This moisturizer actually cleared up some of the redness on my face! This product used alongside the Positively Radiant Scrub has really made my face look much brighter and healthier! The biggest bonus is that it has SPF which will help mask your skin from sun damage. 

The product itself is of medium consistency - I don't find it too thick, but it certainly isn't thin. It easily gets soaked up into the face and it doesn't feel heavy. The smells slightly of floral, but it isn't overwhelming. 

This is a moisturizer you should look into if you want brighter skin, a more even skin texture, and at a reasonable price that you can buy in any drugstore!
