  • Bliss FatGirlSixpack

    Bliss FatGirlSixpack

    Firming but difficult to absorb fully.

    Yes, I will admit that I was allured by the promise of six pack in a bottle. It is important to note that any firming/slimming product will have caffeine as a main ingredient, so that gives this product a thumbs up. However, upon application the product takes a long time to absorb and pushing the dispenser against the skin makes it a bit sore. I used this product for 4 weeks and did notice overall firming of my skin, but it did not get reduce/diminish any areas of fat. Therefore, if you have a thin/skinny body and are looking to get abs then this product may be right for you. However I will have to workout before I achieve a flatter tummy. Or try out one of those fancy fat melting procedures instead ;)

  • Guerlain KISSKISS Liplift - Smoothing Lipstick Primer

    Guerlain KISSKISS Liplift - Smoothing Lipstick Primer

    Beautiful packaging, lackluster results.

    I personally do not wear lipstick, but was curious considering it promoted smoothing and plumping characteristics. The product had a pleasant orchid smell, but left a foul taste in my mouth after applying. I had a dull headache which lasted all day when using this product, though this could be a result of allergies. The product made my lips feel soft, but not hydrated and would feather off easily. Not to mention you get very little product (about 1/4 the size of your pinky finger) for the high price. Overall the product smells and looks wonderful, but fails to live up to its promises in the end.

  • Dior Skinflash Primer

    Dior Skinflash Primer

    Lightweight radiance.

    While on a visit to my local sephora I asked what the difference was between the Dior Skinflash Primer and the YSL Top Secrets Skincare Brush. The Dior Skinflash primer uses photo-smart pigments™ which draw light to your face and diffuse it evenly for an overall glow. The YSL Top Secrets, however contains grains of paradise, which is more like glitter in a tube. Thus, I was curious to try the Dior instead. Upon application I noticed that it was very hydrating and refreshing. The Primer is easy to use as it works with any skintone and blends in evenly. (As demonstrated by an employee with dark skin tone vs myself with fair skin tone). After application I noticed that my skin looked not only more radiant but even toned as well. I highly suggest trying this product, especially for those with dry skin. :)

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Touche Éclat Radiant Touch

    Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Touche Éclat Radiant Touch

    Yes, it is true. Radiance tout suite!

    This is my secret weapon against the war between myself and my dark circles. I tried this product two years ago and then left on a search for something better. But here I am because this is the best product for brightening your under eye area. While you will not be able to completely hide your dark circles (if you have them), this product will make them much brighter. I have a more fair skin tone so I personally use "1 Luminous Radiance - for fair to light complexions with pink undertones." It is important to note that YSL has added more shades to this product so if you are a previous/future buyer this may be more persuasive to research this product to see if it would be suitable for you. The touche eclat can also be used to highlight various areas of the face, but I personally use it just for my eye orbital area. Try it for yourself and see what you think! Suggestion: Visit Sephora to find your best shade ;)

  • Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer

    Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer

    Satisfactory, but not great for eyes.

    Despite all the raves and beauty accolades, I do not see this product as being the best concealer out there. First, you get very little product for $50 in a basic tube with a little gemstone on top. This would make one believe that this product is going to be fantastic due to its packaging, but if you look closer... You get great promises (gemstone), with lackluster results (plastic tube). The concealer itself is very stiff and hard to blend making it awkward for usage. I tried various methods of application which included applying the product directly to my under eye area, using a cotton tip, applying to fingers first, applying to a blending brush. The results? Thick and "cakey" appearance. Not very elegant at all. Perhaps this product would be satisfactory for other parts of the face, but as for the eyes it is a no-no in my book.
