Herbacin Make-up Remover Review

For a long time now, I've been using make-up remover wipes to take off my make-up at night. It's been easy and convenient, but it's not always the best choice for my skin type. I wanted to get back to using a make-up remover that wouldn't cause me to tug Read more

LORAC POREfection Foundation Review


Lorac POREfection Foundation #Review #makeup

I’ll be honest, I’ve stayed away from liquid foundation for a long time.

Typically combination skin doesn’t play nice with this type of foundation.

LORAC Pro Mascara Review

This Fall LORAC introduced a new line called Pro. It features a Pro eye shadow palette (review coming soon), Pro Cream Eyeliner (love!), Blush Cheek Stains and a Nude Gloss Duo. Being somewhat of a mascara maven I’m always willing to try a new brand or formula.  Bring it on! It’s rumored that mascara sales generate about $5 billion a year, hence all the new formulas on the market.

Statistics aside, on my newest mascara test drive I took LORAC Pro Mascara ($23) for a spin. As a mascara maven, I have some very strict criteria a new mascara must meet. It must NOT flake, smudge, clump or dry out my lashes. It SHOULD lengthen, thicken, deliver dramatic bat-worthy lashes and take 10 lbs. off my hips, thighs and butt. Alright maybe the last requirement is optional.   Read more
