If you’ve been here before, you already know what time it is. It’s time to do a bit of trash talkin’. For those of you who are new, WELCOME!!! Here is where I do a review on the products and say what I like/dislike and if I would repurchase.

No need to explain more I can show you…

Rimmel- Stay Matte Primer

Price: $5.99

Use: Daily

Benefits: Liquid mousse that is oil-free. Great for combination skin and keeps the shine away.

Would I repurchase? Yes. Simply put, it works. I know it already says it’s a matte primer but it should say something more than that to let people know this is the truth.  I really think people are missing out on a good thing and as a drug store brand, it’s being overlooked. This primer can run circles around a few high-end primers.


Bobbi Brown – Moisture Rich Foundation SPF15

Price: $47

Use: Occasionally

Benefits: Contains SPF 15 for sun protection and hydrates the skin all day.

Would I repurchase? No. I have no idea how I ended up with this foundation. It’s a moisturizing foundation lol. I had no business buying this with combination-oily skin. It definitely gives a smooth finish and is a good foundation. However, it’s best for those with dry skin.


CoverGirl Easy Breezy Brow Micro-Fine + Define Brow Pencil

Price: $4.79

Use: Daily

Benefits: Micro-fine tip and no sharpening required. Can be easily removed with soap and water. Spoolie on the opposite end for quick grooming.

Would I repurchase?  Yes. As of now, it’s the only eyebrow pencil that I use. I continue to repurchase and as of now have no need to step out and try others. I use the color soft brown.


Jack Black: Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25

Shea Butter & Vitamin E

Price: $8

Use: Daily

Benefits: Hydrating lip balm is enriched. Helps to heal chapped, dry lips.

Would I repurchase? Yes. I like to apply lip balms prior to applying any other lip product rather it’s a gloss or a lipstick.

    Thank you for sharing! I love the format you’ve put together to share your empties review. I’ve been looking to create a writing template for doing my empties reviews.
