whenever i purchase a beauty product, whether it is makeup, skincare, or haircare, i first look up reviews. googling products and watching product reviews on youtube works, but the site i rely on for credible information is...
you do need to make an account and sign in to use it; and its free.
you can read hundreds of valuable reviews from women of all skin tones, skin types, and ages- and the site lists almost every single product that exists! there is also posting boards and a swap section. after reading up on your potential buys, you can post your own reviews on products you love or hate. i can literally sit on that site for hours just looking up things i have or want. makeupalley is a great tool to have!
