Empty Product Reviews - September 2022

Updated: Dec 4, 2022


Better late than never!


Yes, it's almost November. But here's what I finished in September and what I thought about each product:


Eylure x Vegas Nay lashes, Shining Star (discontinued?): I keep a lot of lashes at the off chance I'll want something different for a specific look, but I just never wear these.

Rating: 6/10

Would I repurchase? No


NYX Wicked Lashes, Scandal (discontinued?): These were a nice pair of lashes, a lot like Ardell demi wispies, but I always reach for Ardell before these. I didn't realize they were discontinued!

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? No


Ardell Natural 120 Demi lashes ($4.49): A great natural pair of lashes, similar to their demi wispies.

Rating: 8/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


NYX High Definition Blush, Taupe (discontinued): They remade this in their Sweet Cheeks blush but I don't think the color is as good. This was a nice cool toned shade that worked nicely as contour on fair skin tones. I barely used it though. I usually go right for KVD Shade & Light palette.

Rating: 6/10

Would I repurchase? No


elf Putty Bronzer, Feelin' Shady ($7): I'm surprised that I did not like this!! The product gets a lot of hype but maybe this shade just didn't work for me? I think I prefer cream bronzer over cream contour and I got this shade to be a contour so maybe I should give it another chance with a warmer shade.

Rating: 4/10

Would I repurchase? No


Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask ($39 for full size): This was nice but didn't drastically improve my hair. The scent is the same as the shampoo and conditioner and it's ok but I don't love it.

Rating: 5/10

Would I repurchase? No


elf Hydrating Camo Concealer, Light Sand ($7): A great, affordable concealer! I like both the regular and the hydrating but will definitely go for this one if I repurchase in the winter when my skin is drier.

Rating: 9/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


elf Camo Concealer, Light Sand ($7): It has a matte finish and can look a little dry but overall good! The Light Sand shade is lighter in the regular and darker in the hydrating version.

Rating: 8/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


elf Daily Dew Stick ($8): I thought I was going to love this, but I didn't like it. I was hoping it would be like this dew stick NYX used to make but it was a little sticky and didn't wow me. I was afraid to put it over makeup because I thought it would move my foundation underneath. I tried it without makeup and just didn't see myself ever using it so I'm getting rid of it.

Rating: 3/10

Would I repurchase? No


Cover FX Water Cloud Primer + Pollution & Blue Light Defense (discontinued?): I liked this for hydration but it wasn't the best primer ever or anything. And I just searched and can't find it online either!

Rating: 6/10

Would I repurchase? No


Tarte Shape Tape Mini ($14): I've talked about this concealer a bunch of times, but this is specifically about the mini size. It is not worth it!! You get so little product in here. I do have a couple deeper shades in mini form in my kit because my clientele tends to be lighter skin tones, so I guess it helps that I didn't have to buy full size of all the deeper shades since I don't use then often.

Rating: 5/10

Would I repurchase? No


Kosas Color & Light Cream Blush & Highlighter Duo ($34 for full size): I liked using these! I liked the blushes better than the highlighters. I had to blend the highlighters with my finger a little more but the blushes looked good blended out with a beauty sponge. I don't think I'd pay that price for them though.

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? No


Kosas Sport Chemistry Deodorant, Beachy Clean ($16): I've reviewed this deodorant before and I love it! But I had to review this scent because it made me love it even more!

Rating: 9/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


Hello Extra Freshening Fluoride Toothpaste ($6.99): I've been trying a lot of "cleaner" toothpastes and this was good, better than some I've tried. None of them freshen my breath as much as non-clean ones do but I think this is good for the price.

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser (discontinued?): I really liked this cleanser! It didn't dry out my skin and had a light orange scent. It gets a little thick at the end of the bottle so maybe I should've been shaking it to mix it up? I'm sad it seems to be discontinued.

Rating: 8/10

Would I repurchase? Yes, if they still make it!


Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner, 32 oz ($45): This is the best!! I used to wash my brushes way more in the sink than with this but now I use this a lot! I trust it more than soap and water because it kills more bacteria. This one didn't have the vanilla scent which was weird. It just smelled chemically. I have one more 32oz bottle but then I want to try the lemon scented one! Also, I keep track of when I open items and when I finish them and this bottle lasted me 2.5 years - down to the day!! I thought that was so cool haha! But I use it a lot more now so it won't last me that long again. But I could see this lasting at least a year so it's so worth it. You only need to dip your brush lightly so a little goes a long way!

Rating: 9/10

Would I repurchase? Yes, already did!
