rebecca commented on the post, What are your biggest hair concerns? 2 months, 1 week ago

Seborrheic dermatitis and oily scalp. I don’t wash my hair every day because it’s baby fine and doing that would kill it, but I have to wash it every three days or it just looks greasy and awful and limp. I used a […]

rebecca commented on the post, What are your biggest hair concerns? 2 months, 1 week ago

I hear you on this one :( I used a prescription shampoo for a couple years that really, really helped, and now I’ve switched to the Aveda Scalp Balancing shampoo and conditioner, which seems to work fairly well. […]

Burberry Peony is my go-to, and Rose and Misty are similar. :) I have a couple others I love but I can’t think of them off the top of my head.

I’m loving Brun Vintage and Rose Boudoir, and I don’t have most of the dupes. Maybe I’ll head over to my local Sephora and see if these are in stock.

My mom taught me as an impressionable tween/teen that the point of makeup was to make it look like you weren’t wearing any. Whether or not this was good advice is up for debate, but it’s stuck with me. I always go […]

I would *love* the Clarisonic.

I think I can pass on this – BUT there’s a new shade of the lip balm out (Cherry) that I need to pick up! I really need to put mine back in the fridge for summer; my Honey balm is somewhat squashed due to having […]

rebecca commented on the post, How do you store your makeup brushes? 1 year, 2 months ago

I bought a brush roll off Amazon that I use to keep most of my every day brushes – I bought it for traveling but I’ve just kept my brushes in it since because it’s convenient and they stay clean and dust-free. I […]

Moulin Rouge, I think. The makeup and costumes in that movie were *so* cool. No idea on brand, though.

I selected neutrals because that’s what I gravitate toward in eyes and cheeks, and I have a lot of neutral (not nude, but neutral) lips, but I also like brighter lips, and my nails are always bright or bold or unusual.

Jessica – MAC is backwards. NC = Not Cool, their warm shades, and NW = Not Warm, their cool shades. I’m cool-toned and NW15 (if that; I may be lighter).

rebecca commented on the post, Rant & Rave: BB Cream 1 year, 3 months ago

The main difference between a BB cream and a foundation is that a BB cream tries to be an all-in-one product (at least the Asian ones do): primer, moisturizer, concealer, foundation, sunscreen, and supposedly […]

You can buy a smaller bottle for $31, which is what I did. I’ve never had any irritation or skin problems with this cleansing oil; it leaves my skin soft, smooth, and clear of any makeup. I do tend to follow up […]

rebecca commented on the post, Do you prefer to shop in store or online? 1 year, 3 months ago

It really depends on what I’m interested in. If I’m just looking and don’t have anything particular in mind, I prefer shopping in-store to see what strikes my fancy. if I haven’t tried a product before I’ll want […]

This is the first (and only) cleansing oil I’ve used, and I really like how it takes off my makeup. It did seem awfully thin to me but I didn’t have experience with other cleansing oils to know if that was usual […]

I tried the Clearing Petit BB cream–green tube, has tea tree oil–and it was too dark for me. I was le bummed.

rebecca commented on the post, Rant & Rave: BB Cream 1 year, 3 months ago

To be perfectly honest, no BB cream is going to be *that* beneficial for your skin. I like Asian BB creams for a lot of reasons, but the skincare benefits isn’t one of them. Most BB creams have those ingredients […]

Rave: Good BB creams, by which I mean Korean BB creams, are awesome. I have Missha’s Perfect Cover and I love it.

Rant: What we get in the US aren’t BB creams at all, they’re glorified tinted moisturizers if […]

Not thrilled with the color–seems very unoriginal and dupeable–but the formula sounds up my alley. if I ever break down and buy Tom Ford, I might start with this line.
