  • Desert Essence Organic Jojoba Oil

    i did a lot of research before buying this product and saw that it had extremely high ratings, and i can understand why. it's a fantastic moisturizer and is great for sensitive, acne-prone, problem skin. i have some exzema on my face and this gives me the all moisturizing i need, and also, it has healed and helped prevent my acne!! i can't believe that after all these years of trying so many different moistuizers, this inexpensive, simple product was the answer. the only problem i have is i don't like the packaging of the lid, because you don't really have a good control over how much product comes out. also, just letting you know that it does feel pretty oily on your skin and you have to wait a while for it to absorb into your skin. other than that, i honestly believe in this product and recommend it to anyone and everyone.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Parisienne Eau de Parfum Spray

    i was not particually impressed with this perfume and did not find the scent very attractive. i think it's more of a smell for older to middle-aged women. my boyfriend said it was a mom or grandma smell. also, i did not find that the scent lasted very long throughout the day. it scent sort of faded off into the after. it's an ok smell though, if you are older and like floral, woody smells. personally, i will never wear it again.

  • L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Explosion Carbon Black Mascara

    this is by far the worst mascara i have ever tried. i was so excited when i got it and had such high expectations, but it really dissapointed me. i tried 6 different ways to put it on, but no matter what, it would clump and end up looking like globs on my eyelashes. i even tried wiping off most of the product off the brush tip, and my eyelashes still clumped. i really wished it would work for me, but unfortunately it didn't. the only thing i like about this mascara is that the wand is very long, the mascara is very black, and it contains healthy ingredients like pro-vitamin B5, jojoba oil, and palm oil.

    Stila Gel Cheek Color

    not that great

    i have this in melon flush, but i think it looks more of an apricot color. i'm not very impressed with the color, and this product is so hard to blend. smells funny too. i prefer tarte's cheek stain way more. if you're looking for a cheek stain or a blush, get tarte's cheek stain!

  • Tarte Glam On The Go

    i like how this brush is very big and wide so that it covers all of your face, yet not too dense so that it picks up too much product. i use the ecotools kabuki brush and it's extremely soft, but a little too dense. when i used this brush to apply my mineral foundation, it left my skin with an airbrushed finish and applied just the perfect amount of product over my face. but what i don't like about it is that it tends to shed a lot and the bristles break when you first get it, so make sure you wash it before using it. also, it had very soft bristles, but i think the synthetic fiber brushes are way way softer, such as my ecotools one.

    Tarte The Toolbox: Eyebrow Enhancers

    better than i expected

    i got this off of tarte's website for $4 and didn't expect much from it because i actually really wanted to try benefit's brow zings, but that was too expensive. i'm SO GLAD that i bought this!! i have tanned asian skin and brown hair, and the medium kit looks so natural on me. it surpassed my expectations. the packaging is so convienient and cute, the powder and wax work great, and it also comes with brow gel, a brow pencil, brow stencils, a mini tweezer, and a brush. i think it's one of the best products i have tried from tarte. i love it so much! give it a try, you won't be dissapointed.

    Tarte Natural Cheek Stain

    favorite blush ever!!!

    this is the best blush i've ever tried in my life. i have tanned asian skin, and i think blushing bride and green siren looks best on my skin. it really is "fool-proof", like they say. it's so easy to apply and blend. at first i was scared because i wear liquid foundation, then put mineral founation on top, and i thought that if i put this cheek stain on top it would rub the powder off and make it clump or something. i was so wrong. it blends even better than powder blush and gives you such a natural, beautiful glow that powder can't do. it doesn't just sit on top of your face, but it actually makes you look like you're glowing from within. i also purchased it in flush, but i thought that i was too pink for me and it made my skin look irritated and raw, so i wouln't recommend that color. definetly try blushing bride if you have to choose one color. also, i got mine for 40% off on tarte's website, so watch out for the sales on their website! they have free shipping over $60 too and plus they don't charge tax!!

    Prescriptives All Skins Mineral Makeup 16 Hour Wear / SPF 10

    honestly the best foundation i've ever tried

    these past 3 years, i have been looking for a foundation that would last all day on my incredibly oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin. i've finally found it! it seriously won't smudge, is waterproof, doesn't make me break out, and has every quality i want in a foundation. for every single liquid foundation i've ever used, i've had to touch up at least 5 to 6 times a day because my skin is so oily. also, it helped regulate my oily skin and i actually have less oil on my face now! it was so embarrasing too because every time i would give my boyfriend a big hug i would mess up his shirts from my makeup. i never thought a foundation like prescriptives mineral makeup would exist. i don't even need to bring makeup in my purse anymore cuz i don't even need to touch up anymore. i put it on at 6 am and it lasts till 12 at night, literally (not even one touch up other than just blotting my face with an oil absorbing sheet couple times a day). also, i have worn it to the gym (i sweat so much you wouldn't believe me) and i just washed my car today with my boyfriend in 95 degree weather, and it still STAYED PUT. i was so impressed. my bf was impressed too, and he said it looked really smooth on me and looks better than anything i've tried. i can't rave enough about this product. it's seriously the best foundation i've ever tried. you have to try it. =)

    Tweezerman Classic Lash Curler

    best eyelash curler

    this is the best eyelash curler i've tried. it doesn't tug or rip out your eyelashes and is very gentle. it curls your lashes PERFECTLY and reaches all of your lashes, even the hard to reach ones at the outer corner of the eye. i have short and stubborn asian eyelashes too, and it works wonderfully for me. plus it comes with padding refills so it can last for at least a year, if not more.

    Tweezerman Mini Slant

    must-buy for every person

    i love this tweezer. it's the perfect size to bring with you anywhere and it really gets EVERY SINGLE little hair you want to pluck out. i used the La Cross tweezer and hated it so much because it would take about 5 attempts to get just one hair out. but tweezerman's is so sharp and has such a great grip, and now i don't go anywhere without it. even my boyfriend likes it. =)there's even a life-time warranty on it for free sharpening. LOVE IT!!
