Review for Giorgio Armani Beauty Power Fabric High Coverage Stretchable Concealer - 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
This is a really beautiful concealer. Admittedly, I wouldn't typically pay quite this much for a concealer but this was a great find and one of the better concealers that I've tried recently. It has a uniquely thin texture and while it doesn't have intensely full coverage, it easily provides enough to adequately camouflage undereye darkness and blemishes while maintaining a smoothness that most other concealers don't. Bonus: it hardly creases on me. Because it's a matte concealer, it dries down just slightly darker than what it may appear in the tube but it doesn't truly "oxidize" as some other reviews have inferred. Unfortunately (and I say this only because of the higher price tag), I actually really enjoy this concealer and find that I not only appreciate the consistency of it but also the general wear time and the way that it doesn't seem to accentuate lines or texture. Would I recommend it? Absolutely.

Review for Powerade Zero Ion4 Mixed Berry Sports Drink - 8 CT - 2 weeks, 3 days ago
Fitspiration Expert Level 1
I keep a pack of this around for when someone gets sick or is generally dehydrated (and I typically purchase lower-calorie drinks) and the flavor is OK but extremely light.  I don't really necessarily enjoy drinking it for the flavor but more for the electrolyte benefits.  Not bad, just not great-tasting either.

This is ok.  It's a low-calorie drink so I don't expect it to really have a lot of flavor but it's honestly a little TOO muted for me.  I don't drink it because I like it, quite honestly, but I keep it around as a low-calorie source of electrolytes for times when someone in the family is sick or just generally overly dehydrated from being outside too long in the summer.  Not a bad product--just don't purchase it with the thought that it's going to be a very flavorful drink.

Review for Crystal Light On-The-Go Sugar Free Lemonade Drink Mix - 2 weeks, 3 days ago
I like to keep these sticks around especially during the summer when lemonade just seems "in season".  I'm not someone who likes to drink my calories (so to speak) so I can definitely appreciate having a low-calorie lemonade to drink!  It's also nice to even throw a couple of sticks in my purse or my desk at work so that I can add it to a water bottle during the day and I find it really refreshing.

Review for Clinique City Block Purifying™ Charcoal Clay Mask + Scrub - 2 weeks, 3 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
This stuff is GREAT.  I love the combination of charcoal and exfoliating particles in the same product!  It dispenses as a light blue color but turns gray as it dries and it makes my skin feel a little "detoxed" after I've rinsed it off.  It doesn't leave any kind of residue and when it's rinsed off with water, the formula turns into a nice scrubby consistency that really helps make my skin feel smoother and takes down any oiliness that I might have had prior to applying it.  *I definitely recommend using a good moisturizer afterward as it can be slightly drying*.  While this may not be the product of choice for dry-skinned individuals, this is a mask/scrub that will be absolutely ideal for those with more oily skin who need a good deep-cleanse!

Review for Kate Somerville® ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment - 2 weeks, 3 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I really like this.  It's expensive--overly priced, really--but it's very nice.  The scent may be a little off-putting for some but I've grown to like it and it's a little hard to describe but it has an interesting "green" smell to it with a hint of some kind of spice, maybe cinnamon.  The exfoliating particles are incredibly fine and the scrub does a nice job of really making my skin feel a little more polished and smooth without causing irritation.  I've used this for years and I'll continue to use it because I do find it quite nice.
Review for IT Cosmetics® Your Skin But Better™ CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ - 2 weeks, 3 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
This is like a turbo-charged CC cream!  I generally think of CC creams as having really light coverage and while this can certainly be sheered out on the skin, it has the potential to provide medium-to-full coverage, especially if applied with a brush.  I find that it gives a natural finish--not too radiant or matte--and it actually provides pretty good lasting power on me.  I have normal skin and I like pairing this with a moisturizing primer on the perimeter of my face and a pore-filling primer right around my nose and find that it looks best this way.  Typically I'll also lightly set it with a loose setting powder as well, simply because it seems to make everything last longer.  The SPF in it is a bonus for me, especially during the summer months, and I find myself reaching for this a couple of days per week because I like how it looks on my skin.  The main con to this product is the limited shade range BUT if you can find a decent match then I think it's worth trying!

This is definitely an intense fragrance!  It smells like a very strong, straight-from-the-bottle vanilla without any cloying sweetness whatsoever.  It lasts an incredibly long amount of time as well!  I actually almost prefer to layer this with other scents and find that it pairs nicely with lighter, sweeter fragrances to create a more "custom" scent for me and I think that this is a fragrance that a lot of people may actually enjoy.
Review for Thierry Mugler Alien Eau de Toilette Spray - 2 weeks, 3 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I HATE this scent.  To me it smells far too masculine and overpowering and it LASTS an incredibly long amount of time.  I made the mistake of actually spraying on myself before doing a test strip first and was immediately sorry; for some reason it just doesn't mesh well with my skin.
