  • Tarte lifted natural eye primer with Firmitol

    I used this primer as it came with a couple of different palettes from tarte. I like that it had some color to even out my eyelids. I didn't notice any long term effects (lifting or less wrinkles). It's not sticky enough to be a good primer. Shadows didn't stay as well as with some of my favorite primers. Not something I would purchase on it's own.

  • Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

    I think the hardest thing to do with this product is to find your shade, especially shopping online. I used this product for some time and it gave me decent coverage. I am in my 30's so tinted moisturizers are not working as well for me as they did in my 20's. The formula of this is smooth and blends nicely. It didn't break me out until the product got old (I had it for some time, the amount of product you get is plenty for the price). I still got a bit oily in my t-zone by the end of the day. There was some transfer also. It did last pretty well, especially with powder on top. It's a very natural looking coverage. I would buy this product again.

    Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    Doesn't bother my rosecea

    Most cleansers are very irritating. This one cleans my face and doesn't dry out, irritate, or make my face red. It does not remove eye makeup very well. It does clean off other makeup though. Overall, it's a decent priced facewash that doesn't make my skin worse.

  • Physicians Formula Baked Bronzer Bronzing & Shimmery Face Powder

    I have fair skin - I purchased this in the lightest color. When I got home I tested it. I layered it on my face. Again and again. Tons of layers. Not once did it look orange or gross or fake. It just looked like I had more tan skin. This product does have shimmer, so I don't recommend putting it all over your face in layer after layer. That is just a test I do. I do love the look it gives me, nice and bronze and a bit shimmery. It doesn't make a good contour because of the shimmer, but PF makes great matte bronzers for that. As always the packaging is unnecessarily bulky. The top is rounded so you can not stack products. This is overall the best drugstore bronzer I have tried. I would recommend as they do have more than one color.

  • Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer, Blush & Eye Shadow

    This shimmer strips product is a good multipurpose product, in theory. They have bronze, rosy, and peachy colors. They are shimmery like most everything that Physicians Formula does. I am surprised at how soft this product is NOT. Their eye shadows and powders are usually really good texture wise. I find this product to be very difficult to swatch and even my brush has a difficult time picking up the product. It does offer a nice subtle glow that isn’t too glitter disco ball like. The multi purpose use of this product is great as you can take it on a trip and have your eye shadow, blush, highlighter and bronzer in one compact. Another problem I have with the shimmer strips is that the strips are quite narrow. This makes using individual colors more difficult. I find it to be a product I don’t want to use, because it is so difficult. I would be much happier with a softer formula. I think I will save up and spend more on a higher end brand.

  • Physicians Formula Baked Collection Wet/Dry Eye Shadow

    I bought one of these palettes after hearing how great they were. I had a hard time choosing which of the 3 palettes in my store I wanted to try. As a baked shadow, they of course apply best wet for real color payoff. These are a bit shimmery. I got the palette with a high light color, a brown color and a weird shimmery purple that looked terrible and that did not match the other two in the palette very well at all. Physicians Formula is a bit on the pricy side for drugstore makeup. I purchased the palette with the purple in it because I though it was the most unique out of the rather bland, basic, and extremely small selection of palettes. I should have went with a different one, or passed it up altogether. They apply ok, though they are a bit on the powdery side. Dry, they are not as pigmented as I like and as I said, the colors are not really unique. Wet application is the best, but I find that wet application is not something I can do in a hurry. I don’t use that technique unless I have time to spend on my look. The packaging is a bit awkward like most of the Physicians Formula packaging. It's a bit bulky and doesn't stack well. Most Physicians Formula products are hit or miss. I would call this one a miss. With the limited color selections, the price, and the average formula, this is not a product I would recommend. But everyone is different so try it if you like.

  • Sephora Super Shimmer Lip Gloss

    The Sephora brand lip gloss is not my favorite. It's almost has a greasy feel to it like a cheap lip gloss. It does offer nice shine. The wear time is kind of ehhh. It's not sticky, but I would prefer a little stickiness over the greasy Vaseline fell it has. The colors aren't bad, but they are not really opaque. Overall not something I would buy again.

  • The Body Shop 100% Natural Lip Roll-On
    3.0

    The Body Shop 100% Natural Lip Roll-On

    Typical Natural Roll On

    These are not great. They lack any kind of real consistency like most roll on glosses. It doesn't stay on my lips past 10 minutes. If you are bored that's ok, because then you can keep re-applying it and rubbing it in (and tasting it). They do make your lips a little softer. It would be a good lip prep item before you apply lipstick. It does feel oily. I got this because it reminded me of the ones I used to get as a kid, usually from lip smackers. 3 stars for taste and nostalgia.

  • The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes

    I was hesitant to pay $22 for 4 eye shadows, but you get SO much product! I had to try the cute little cubes of shimmery goodness. They are shimmery. They go well paired with a matte. I like to use similar color mattes in my crease then apply this shimmery shadow to my lids. It looks terrific. The matte shade adds more pigment too. These aren't highly pigmented, mostly because they are shimmery. The shadows are smooth, they blend well and there is no fallout from what I have experienced. It can be a little cumbersome to open the lid, pull out the cube you want, then open that lid to use the product. Overall, the packaging concept is different and unique and I do like it. They have nice colors, but not enough in my opinion. If you like shimmery shadows like I do, you will love these.
