Here are all my reviews:
  • Essie Nail Polish

    I love Essie nail polish. Having recently become addicted to nail polish, I've bought more than my fair share of it. While Essie costs a little more than your average nail polish, it lasts much longer and looks much better. They also have a great selection of colors. And it's available at drug stores! It also lacks some of the harsher chemicals that cheaper polishes have.

  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

    This is absolutely, hands down, my favorite mascara. The end. I received the mascara when I bought a tarte gift set with lipsurgence and some eyeliner. I had heard really good things about lights, camera, lashes and wanted to try it out for myself. I have never been so impressed with a mascara in my life! The formula reminds me a little of Maybelline’s Full and Soft mascara, except it adds a lot more volume to lashes and has much better staying power. Applying this mascara is really easy. It goes on so smoothly with absolutely no clumps, and it’s really easy to build whatever volume you desire. For me, it lasted all day through classes and trekking across campus. I have sensitive, oily skin, so it is very rare that a mascara lasts, doesn’t clump, and doesn’t irritate my skin or eyes. This accomplished all of that and also made my eyelashes look amazing!

  • Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner

    Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner

    Great moisturizing conditioner

    This is the conditioner I’ve started using for the winter months when my curls start to dry out. It’s really moisturizing and you don’t have to use a ton of it for it to leave your hair feeling soft. I would recommend this to people with drier hair or use heat on their hair often. I think it would be okay for oily hair as long as you didn’t apply too much on the roots. The best part about this is how cheap it is! It’s worth it to just try out if you’re looking for something new.

  • Clinique Foundation Brush
    9.0

    Clinique Foundation Brush

    My go-to foundation brush

    I've only used a few different brushes for foundation, because I used sponges to apply it for a long time. This was part of a birthday gift I received from a friend, and it is definitely my favorite! The clear handle of the brush is really beautiful and well-made, and the bristles are soft and pliable, but never fall out. I clean it once a week with make up brush cleaner and so far it has lasted me 2 years! It spreads foundation around my face really well. The only reason I'm giving it 9 stars is because it is pretty expensive and I probably wouldn't be able to afford it if it wasn't a gift.

  • Clinique Touch Base for Eyes

    This was the first eyeshadow primer that I ever bought. I usually like clinique products so this was very disappointing. I liked that you can choose the color of it and wear it on its own as a highlighter, but it didn't work well for me at all as a primer. I think it actually made my greasy eyelids even greasier and the eyeshadow creased like crazy and didn't stay put. If you don't want to spend lots of money on a great primer like Too Faced or Urban Decay, I would suggest just using a really good foundation for oily skin under shadow.

  • Urban Decay Naked Palette

    This is such an amazing eye shadow! It comes in a velvet box and just makes me feel so fancy whenever I use it. I received it as a Christmas gift (because it is pricey and there’s no way I could afford it on my own). I had never used Urban Decay eye shadow before I got the Naked palate, and I now adore it! When used in combination with the primer, it goes on so incredibly smoothly and there’s no creasing! That is a first for me. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the eye shadows are highly pigmented and blend easily. All of the colors are absolutely gorgeous. They can be combined in all sorts of ways to create about any effect you want. I know that some people don’t like the brush, but I think it’s pretty decent. It may seem pricey at $4 per shadow, but for Urban Decay or any other higher end make up retailer, it’s a good deal. This is really the only eye shadow I use anymore. I’d also like to note that I get eczema around my eyes and this didn’t irritate my skin at all.

  • Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil

    I absolutely LOVE this eye liner. I purchased it recently because of the good reviews I read on here, and I can testify to all the hype! I bought the color called "Sable Brown" which is a very pretty medium brown/bronze color. It glides on so smoothly with great pigmentation. I was really expecting it to fade or smudge after a few hours because it went on so easily, but it didn't! I applied it on top of an eyelid primer and set it with eyeshadow, and it lasted for six whole hours with no noticeable change. That is truly a first for me, because I have very greasy eyelids. I don't know about any of the other colors, but the brown is great. It looks wonderful with blue eyes.

  • Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup

    Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup

    Great everyday foundation

    I definitely bought this foundation on a whim in the drugstore. I usually only use mineral powder because my skin is both sensitive and oily, but in the winter time it dries out a bit and I can use foundation again. Revlon Colorstay was always my favorite foundation as a teenager because it hid acne so well, but now that I’m in my 20’s I don’t need such heavy coverage. The whipped foundation is a perfect fit for me. It’s lighter than the original formula but stays on just as well. I can go pretty much all day with minimal touch ups and still look great at the end of the day. The best part is my skin doesn’t get really greasy or irritated like it does with practically every other foundation! Plus, the packaging is really nifty and fancy looking. This is a good everyday foundation for those looking for medium coverage. I’m not sure if this would be the best foundation for those with dry skin, but it seems to work great for normal/oily skin types.

  • Olay Original Active Hydrating Cream - Original

    I really like Olay in general, but some of their night creams irritate my skin. Active Hydrating doesn't, and it helps me keep my skin from getting dry and flaky in the winter. I have eczema on my face and acne, and this cream didn't aggravate either condition. I don't think this is a cream for someone who is looking to fix a major issue with their skin, but it works great for someone with sensitive or dry skin, or someone looking to maintain their skin's health. I usually use this at night, and when I wake up in the morning my skin always looks refreshed. I absolutely love the way it smells (similar to cold cream) and I love the rich, creamy texture. I always end up coming back to this cream after I'm tempted to try a new one.

  • Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara

    This stuff is my go to mascara. Whatever I try, I usually end up coming back to Full and Soft. The area around my eyes is very sensitive and prone to eczema, so I have to be extra careful with the kind of eye makeup I use. I really like the way this goes on and only needs one or two coats. It does exactly what it claims to do- make my lashes full and soft. I hate when mascaras make lashes hard and brittle. This mascara always leaves mine soft to the touch and doesn’t flake. If I use it with a mascara primer and concealer under my eyes, it doesn’t smudge. It may not give a huge amount of volume or length, but it is great for school or work. My only complaint is that during hot weather it’s not as long wearing as I’d like it to be.
