    Neutrogena Wave Deep Clean Foaming Refill Pads

    Ehh..its ok. Face care in a pinch

    This system is ok. The pads foam and lather nicely when exposed to water. I much prefer a brush to these pads, but that's just personal preference. It is sometimes difficult to get the pads to stay on to the "Wave," but other than that, it is alright

  • Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup

    Too Faced Beauty Balm gives skin a healthy glow and improves skin's overall appearance by using Light-diffusing pigments, which tint and add radiance ( 6 shades). Its Multi-mineral composition, primes the skin, prevents damage, and moisturizes. It is Hypoallergenic, Chemical-free, and offers Broad-spectrum SPF 20. I didn't experience the oiliness that some other reviewers are speaking of, I thought the opposite. My face didn't feel oily at all. It gives you light coverage, all while nourishing and repairing the skin. This product gives my skin a glow. I like that I can apply this, and my freckles still look natural, unlike other products. I have sensitive skin as well, and this Beauty Balm didn't irritate my face at all. Much like other Too Faced products, this is packaged in a girly, yet elegant-looking box. Inside you find a tube-style container of Balm, which you squeeze to dispense the product. One small thing I didn't like about this; because the coverage is so sheer, I have to use a decent amount of this product to achieve an even look on my whole face. Other than having to use a bunch of product, I really like this Beauty Balm.

  • Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette

    I enjoyed this palette from Too Faced, but only 2/3 of it. I loved that they included neutrals and blacks, but I did not enjoy the bright green (not even on St. Patrick's Day). I love too faced products, and I love that they include note cards that give instructions for application. The shadows are of good quality. They have high pigmentation, and stay applied well (with primer). The shadows spread evenly, don't clump, and don't break easily in the package. Included is two shadow applicators. It is a great product for those who are just starting to learn how to apply makeup, or those who enjoy a quality palette.

  • Japonesque Angled Foundation - Taklon

    Living up to its name, the angled foundation brush from Japonesque takes flawless to a new level. The brush is flat, with an angled edge, and made with synthetic bristles for easy cleaning (and still maintain the shape!). This brush is on the small side, making it easy to travel with. The angled edge, makes it super easy to apply foundation around the eyes, mouth, and other creased areas. It provides smooth application, and flawless coverage, while minimizing pores in the process. I especially loved how even the brush makes foundation look. A must have for anyone who uses liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer as a foundation.

  • Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream

    I love this eye cream. Not only does it help with fine lines and wrinkles, it has helped diminish the dark circles under my eyes. I purchased this product in a face care kit from Benefit. It comes in a small jar (kind of like a lip balm), which I thought was adorable! It is a white cream, with a similar consistency to yogurt. I liked that the cream was thick, I felt like I had total control over the product. Once applied, this product feels cool and refreshing. I think it feels like putting a cold washcloth under your eyes. I felt the product was nourishing and moisturized my skin, all while tackling my problem areas! I use this cream in the morning and night. I've been using it a month now, and I still have half of a jar left (this stuff lasts!!). I have sensitive skin, and this product did not irritate, or dry out my skin at all. I will definitely be keeping this product in my beauty bag. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to take care of their under-eye concerns.

  • Face Stockholm Gel Eyeliner

    Face Stockholm Gel Eyeliner

    Eyeliner Heaven

    Face Stockholm Gel Eyeliner is a highly pigmented, water-proof eyeliner. It is smudge proof, long-lasting, and an overall great product. I have the "Port" color, which is a black-purple color, with (what looks like) some fine glitter to give it shine. It has a smooth consistency, and doesn't clump. It doesn't dry, or crack either. When applied, it goes on evenly, and has a great, dark color. It lasted all day for me, even at work (I sweat profusely!). I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who likes gel eyeliner, or would want to try it. Personally, I do not ever want to run out of this product, and I will be re-purchasing!

  • Benefit Posietint

    Benefit Posietint

    Posietint

    Posietint is, by far, the best stain I have ever used! It comes packaged much like a nail polish; twist off top with brush-style applicator attached to the top. Let's just say, if you couldn't read you would probably be trying to put this on your nails. This stain is used for cheeks and lips, and has a bright pink (Posie) color. The color is sheer, so no worries about it being too dark. If you wish to have a brighter pink color, simply layer the product until you have achieved your perfect color (eventually you will have more of a hot pink color). Posietint has a gel-like consistency that is silky smooth. I love that it's a gel, so I don't have to worry about bleeding, and the color goes exactly where I want it. I usually smear a small amount (A little goes a long way!) on to my hand, and apply to my cheeks from there with a brush or makeup sponge. It blends easily into the skin, creating a natural look, and stays put all day (I sweat a lot at work, and Posietint survived!). Be sure to apply this product quickly, as it dries fast. Although this product dries, it doesn't leave the skin flakey or feeling malnourished. For lips, Poisetint works absolutely wonderfully. It gives your lips a beautiful, youthful pink color. It doesn't get sticky, but it does dry, so be sure to remember your lip balm or gloss! I love how lightweight this product is, yet still packs a (Pink) punch. Overall, another fabulous product from Benefit Cosmetics

    Benefit Some-Kind-A Gorgeous

    Some-Kind-A-Gorgeous

    I enjoyed this product immensely, but I chose to use it as a concealer instead of a "foundation faker." It only comes in three shades- lite, medium, and deep. I chose the medium tone. This product is an oil free, cream-to-powder, which I enjoy (I have combination skin). Those of you with dry skin may want to choose something else. I'm sure if you apply this product on dry skin, it would look flakey or cakey. It offers light (or sheer) coverage, so those of you who need heavy cover-ups, should look elsewhere. It has a silky smooth feel to it, and seems to spread evenly when applied. Many users have been bothered by the smell of this product, but it was so light, it didn't bother me (I don't have a sensitive sense of smell). Once on, this product lasted all day, and didn't become greasy (even through sweating at work!). Overall, a great product for those who only need light coverage.

  • Yes To Cucumbers Eye Love Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel

    My under-eye circles have always been troublesome for me. I've tried several creams, and gels to tackle this problem, but this product caught me off guard. It comes packaged in a pump-style container, and is a clear-colored gel like substance. The texture and smell of this product, reminds me of the peel-off cucumber face mask ( for those of you who've tried it). It has a light, true to cucumber smell, that I find quite refreshing. Upon application, this gel feels soothing and cool. It has a little stickiness to it when you spread the product, and it continues to feel cold until it dries. Once dried, this product looks shiny. I didn't enjoy the fact that everyone could clearly see I had this product on my face, due to shiny spots under my eyes. Another thing I didn't like, was that if the product is rubbed after drying (everyone gets that "itch" during the day!), the shiny spots under my eyes turned into something similar to eraser residue (erase on a piece of paper, and the stuff left on the paper is what I'm referring to). The product bunched, and turned into little cucumber gel balls dangling from my face. Aside from the issue I had with the substance, this product did diminish my under-eye circles a bit. I noticed that my eyes looked a little more refreshed and awake after using it. I don't feel that this product moisturized, nourished, or hydrated the skin (maybe this is due to the frustration of picking the gel balls off, LOL). I think this would be a great overnight gel to use for under-eye circles, but I will not be using it during the day anymore. I wanted to love this product. It has so many great properties, such as ; 99% Natural, Hypoallergenic, Paraben Free, and a portion of proceeds goes to their "Yes To Seed Fund" which teaches kids about nature and living healthier lifestyles. Unfortunately, I set my standards too high for this one. I will continue to use the product (It is a decent product, don't get me wrong), but I'll be switching to something else when it's gone.
