  • Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder

    Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder

    Chalky and overpriced!

    I did not like this bronzer at all! First, the brush it comes with picks up way to much pigment so I would suggest using a different brush. I like how it's in a box which controls the mess of the powder but I felt that it was way too matte and chalky for my taste. Also the color looks too "dirty" instead of giving you that natural sun-kissed glow. Will not buy again.

  • L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Gelee Medium Natural Tan

    This is a wonderful product. I am naturally pale and was looking for a decent self tanner that was also affordable. This one surpassed my expectations. I like that it's a gel so it feels very light on your skin, almost like a serum. It dries quickly and within a few days you have a natural glow. I prefer this over the Jergens gradual self tanner because it is lighter, dries quickly and the smell of this one is not over-powering like with most self-tanners. It's a great product to try.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    I have to say that this is a wonderful foundation but it does seem that some people love it and others hate it. I love how I can get fuller coverage by using a fluffy kabuki brush and blending the powder onto my skin. I love that "glow" it gives you. Plus, since it is so natural, I have definitely noticed an improvement on my blemished skin. However, it can get cakey or drying since it's a powder so make sure to moisturize your skin really well before applying this foundation!

  • Stila Cherry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain

    I love this lip stain! The applicator makes it easy to control exactly how much you want and the color is very long-lasting. It's great for summer when you want just a pop of color on your lips/cheeks without having to worry about reapplying. Also, the color can be bright, depending on how much you use but its perfect for that just-bitten look. I do want to note though, that since it is a stain, it is not moisturizing so if you want some extra moisture using a balm underneath works great!

  • Smashbox Brow Tech Trio
    6.0

    Smashbox Brow Tech Trio

    Good but overpriced!

    This is a pretty good product. I like the softness of the brow powder instead of a pencil, which can look harsh. However, you have to be pretty careful with the wax since a little gos a long way. Also, in my experience I've noticed that the powder is not long-lasting and the last thing you wanna do is have to touch-up your eyebrows. So in the end, it's a good product but overpriced for its performance so I don't think I will purchase again.

  • Revlon Brow Fantasy
    3.0

    Revlon Brow Fantasy

    A bit messy.

    This is a good choice if you are looking for an affordable brow pencil/gel but it's not the best I have used. I think the pencil is a bit too thick for the brows so you can't blend in thin lines for a more natural look. The color selection is not that great so you might not find something that will match well with you natural brow color. Also, I feel that the tinted gel is a bit unnecessary and you have to be careful how much comes out of the tube so that it doesn't get messy.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Don't get me wrong, I love many things about this mascara. The formulation is not thick and doesn't clumpy. The brush is small but does it job so you can maneuver around your lashes. So all in all its a good product but with so many mascaras out there, I wouldn't rate this one as the number one mascara.

  • MAC Slimshine Lipstick

    MAC Slimshine Lipstick

    Great Price and Great Product

    I love these lipsticks! They are very moisturizing and it's great that now MAC has more colors to choose from. Not as long-lasting as creme or matte lipsticks, these lipsticks have a glossy finish which varies from sheer to intense based on the color. Great for summer when you don't want heavy lipcolor! They are also affordable compared to other high-end brands.

    D.J.V. Beautenizer Fiberwig LX Mascara

    Different from everything else!

    This mascara is unlike anything I have ever tried! It basically coats your eyelashes to give you this "false eyelashes" look. It does not smudge or get clumpy which I love. IT is also very easy to remove since the pigment comes right off without smearing all over your eyes. Awesome!

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20

    This product is very hydrating and dewy. It feels great on the skin and looks very natural but this is not suitable for people with very oily skin or if you are looking for more coverage. Great for hot summer days though when you need minimalist makeup that won't melt!
