Eyeliner -Ciate -Fierce Flicks

on 4/15/2018 9:42:00 AM


I received this product in an Ipsy subscription bag a few months ago.

PROS: the formulation is pretty standard. The consistency is good and not too thick or watery and also is pretty opaque black. The snap cap keeps the product sealed very well (but needs an actual two-handed tug for me to open).

CONS: I HATE the applicator! It is a felt tip that is pointed at the end but tapers into a thick end a little too quickly for my liking. It is hard for me to get a precise line, especially as the application gets closer to the inner corner of the eye. Honestly, the shape of the applicator has been enough of a turn off I have only used this twice because everytime I go to use this again, I end up fixing and completing the look with the Kat Von D.

BOTTOM LINE: I am not so regretfully passing this on. See yo never!

Polishes -Ciate -What The Shell?!

on 3/30/2018 9:02:00 AM


What The Shell? is what I call a blurple [indigo] blue/purple shade, with a creme finish. Most of the time I think it is more of a blue-with-a-purple undertone, but then in certain other lighting this shade looks like it leans more towards being purple-with-a-strong-hint-of-blue. So yeah, blurple. It is a colour that I happily wear all year round. I'd first thought that either China Glaze's Queen B or Essie's No More Film would be a dupe for this polish, but What The Shell? is different enough to justify owning.

I wanted to review this shade because the pigmentation is awesome, and the formula is really smooth and bubble/streak free to apply. This shade is very nearly a one coater; there are sometimes one or two thin spots with one coat on me, but I'm sure that someone that is better at pointing their nails can get away with just the one coat. The formula is smooth to apply and fast to dry. This polish can last me for up to four days with very minor chipping. Since I use a self-powered wheelchair and am forever banging and/or catching my hands and nails, I find this to be a very impressive wear-time for me. I must also comment on the design of the bottle and lid. The shape is very easy to grip, meaning there's less smudging and spills.

Lipstick -Ciate -Liquid Velvet

Better for younger lips than my over 40's pout. Emphasises lip lines, dry patches, and makes lips look old. Needs liner, as it bleeds outside the lipline.

Mascara -Ciate -Triple Shot

on 1/11/2018 4:52:00 PM


Triple Shot mascara has a awesome formula wear-wise; it's clump free, has a rich colour, and in addition to holding the created curl it also adds length & volume. I average at 12 hours wear per day and [despite the formula not being waterproof] the mascara has never flaked on me.

However I found that the shape of the brush is important to create the shape and definition to my lashes. This means that one eye on me always looks nicely fanned out, but I don't like flipping my wrist to do the other eye as I don't like the feeling of a lack of control, so my other eye rarely has the same level of definition on the inner third of my lashes. Also; this mascars is a pain to remove - I'll still be wiping specks away with cleansing pads for a few days after initially removing it [2 steps with cleanser + skin wipes].

Polishes -Ciate -Fortune Teller

on 1/5/2018 8:40:00 AM


Fortune Teller is a silver glitter polish (clear base).

I originally picked it out from my stash to use by itself. It looked like it could be used by itself, but having applied 1 coat, I could see it was not dense enough as a polish in its own right. I think if you do want to use it by itself you will need at least 3-4 coats. I decided to use silver polish as a base, so in my picture you you can see 1 coat of Fortune Teller over 2 coats of Rimmel Pure Silver.

The glitters are easy to spread around the nail evenly. Personally I prefer silver glitter that is either more subtle, like China Glaze Fairy Dust, which can be used as a topper or denser ones, which can be used as a polish in its own right. This one is somewhere inbetween.
