    Hi there, Emily (or her viewers). Quick question: How similar are the Revlon HD Dawn and Neutrogena Soft Raspberry? It looks like the Neutrogena has a little more obvious shimmer, but I'm not certain. What do y'all think?

    Same opinion on the St. Ives Oil. I did NOT like it either and I feel like it took work to get it off my face. I did not like how it left my skin feeling afterwards. A dud for sure. Thanks for your honest opinions ALL the time whether a company sends you something or you purchase it on your own. I enjoy listening to your "random thoughts" in your last GRWM (Beauty Chat). You are one of favorite YTer's. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the review on the St. Ives scrub, almost bought it the other day but was turned off by the price being more than double that of there normal scrubs. Upon hearing your review feel reassured in my decision.

    I know you love bargain makeup – would love too see a haul or 1-brand tutorial with Nicka K makeup. I can only order it online (I live in Texas), but I believe it's sold in stores other places in the U.S. I also believe they are cruelty free.

    Thank you for the suggestion about using that Sigma brush for blending out concealer under the eyes! I received that brush in a kit and it's the only one I never found a use for. I actually ORDERED a brush from Sigma to use for under-eye concealer. I really think I'm going to return it now! You're the best and I really appreciate your channel. Keep up the good work.

    Emily I know it's a little odd, but since you talked about Makeup Forever HD powder, I remember you used to love Mally face defender, do they do the same thing or they are different? Do you think the Makeup forever one can replace it, are they comparable at all?

    I am one in a million apparently, but Shape Tape looks disgusting on my skin. I only use a itty-bitty amount on well moisturized skin, and it bunches up and moves around and looks terrible!! I was so shocked. I've tried fingers, a beauty blender, and brushes. I did get it to look really good with a beauty blender once, but then it bunched up with I tried to gently tap liquid highlighter on top. So disappointing and not worth the effort.
    I also found the coverage to be way less than I had anticipated after seeing such positive feedback in the comments of the beauty community. The Kat Von D Creme concealer works 1000x better for me personally.
