Product Review Category: FACE



Dare I say my high maintenance days are over? (Hear me out…) The last time I traveled I only packed ONE concealer, instead of what i usually do, which is one for my undereye circles and one for my blemishes. YSL’s Anti Cernes Multi Action Concealer is a powerhouse that somehow manages to be creamy enough to look natural under the eyes and pigmented enough to cover imperfections on the face.

Argan Tinted Moisturizer (Josie Maran)

Josie Maran’s Argan Tinted Moisturizer is a travellin’ gal’s BFFL.

Natural Mineral Foundation (Youngblood)

Best mineral all in one I have found for my troubled skin -coverage without caking; use a small brush to dab on to imperfections and them smooth over with large powder brush. $40 – changed my life.

Sephora Cellulose Sponge Set

Imagine digging into your kitchen sink and grabbing the dish sponge. Then washing your face with it. And that, in a nutshell, is what it’s like to use Sephora’s Cellulose Sponge Set. These are meant for face washing. No. Stay away.

Sephora The Sculptor Makeup Sponge

I couldn’t resist the cuteness of both the shape and color of Sephora’s The Sculptor Makeup Sponge. Unfortunately, I was “meh” on both the process and final result.

Sephora Precision Sponge

I’m not sure that Sephora’s Precision Sponge was all that precise. I found it to be a little clunky and hard to use. Yes, it’s less expensive than other sponges, but don’t let that deter you, especially if you don’t have pro hands, like yours truly. I gave up and went back to using my fingers. WOOPS.

Laura Mercier Sponges

A 4 pack of high quality sponges from Laura Mercier. This will set you back $15, but hey, if you’re at Sephora and in a pinch, I find them way better than the ones from the drug store that crumble on your face.


Someone said that when applying makeup, your fingers are your best tools. Well, the lazy gal in me held on to that theory for years, even though this cute little pink beauty (AKA the “Beauty Blender”) kept staring me down at the Sephora till.

RevitaLift Radiant Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelettes

I was not expecting much when I swiped a L’oreal’s Revitalift Radiant Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelette over my face.

Le Blanc Immediate Brightening Oil-Gel Makeup Remover

My friend’s mother is one of the most gorgeous women I’ve ever seen and she’s only ever used Chanel products- EVER- for her entire product-using life. I obviously had to know her secrets, and this was one of them- Le Blanc Immediate Brightening Oil-Gel Makeup Remover.
