Re: Beauty Review Websites

[ Edited ]



These are the rcosmetic eview sites I like most:

Makeup artist site, leaning mostly toward MAC Cosmetics.



Reviews are trustworthy, as are most of their forums (makeup, nailpolish, skincare board, food & recipe forum, etc).



Great resource! Her reviews are good, though I do not always agree; but what I love most zre her Comparison Swatch searches! Her Foundation Shade Finder ks also perfect! You enter in your favorite brand/line and shade, and you can find a close shade match in another brand or line.




Nail Polish:

ThePolishAholic swatches!

YouTube LIVE ° nail polish swatches & reviews are also great! There are many vloggers doing these now.


Vampy Varnish reviews


Makeupalley product review area, and their nail polish forum.





I will have to check out Beautypedia!

Although I have never had a problem with any supposed conflict of interest between Paula's Choice and Beautypedia, it is a moot now that she is not longer the primary person behind the brand. And not only that, but TPTB separated the Paula's Choice site and Beautypedia several months ago.

One big problem I have with Beautypedia is they are always behind in reviewing products. They will have a product listed that was discontinued 2 years ago, and then not post products that were introduced 2 years ago. They have whole beauty lines missing that they have never reviewed.

Essential Day Spa is another place to look for reviews, however, I find it difficult navigate and I get confused over there. There is a lot of info on this site.

Thanks wannabeincall, about Temptalia's foundation shade finder. That is something I can certainly use, especially since I do most of my makeup buying online.

A really fun youtube channel to watch is Jen Luvs Reviews.  She's so informative, shows pics, videos, lets you know the most current news in the beauty industry - a Makeup Minute every weekday and an hour long What's Up in Makeup on Sunday.  


She's a very unbiased, informative and sweet girl.  I watch her vids every day.
