I am going to try it a second time and leave it on longer. It surprised me how quickly it faded back to my gray hair color. In 3 weeks it’s gone. I love that you don’t have strong ammonia smell that others have. The color was nice but just didn’t last. I will try again and leave it on longer
Thanks,

Eyeliner -Marc Jacobs -Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner

I have this in the shade Earthquake, a dark brown. The pigmentation is really nice. It goes on so smooth with no tugging across my eyelids, and stays put all day. However, I really have to work it onto my top and bottom water lines, especially the bottom. And while it stays on my top waterline okay, it usually vanishes from my bottom waterline within minutes. It's also not great for smudging since it dries very quickly. It's said to have 15 seconds before setting, but I find that's just not enough as mine stays in place almost immediately.

Overall, it's a pretty good liner, but it's not worth the price point for me to repurchase when there are cheaper options that still preform well.

Lipstick -wet n wild -MegaLast Lip Color - Bare it All

Read all the rave reviews and was anxious to try. I'm a medium beige with dark brows and very dark brown hair. I was looking for a flattering nude, but this one goes on orange on me and looks ghastly. At least it was cheap.

Lashes stuck together, curl disappeared. Another one bites the dust.

Primer/ Corrector -Tarte Cosmetics -Double Duty Beauty Base Tape Hydrating Primer

This primer is a thin white liquid, slightly runny and milky white. Easy to work with, it spreads easily and soaks in. Feels hydrating and lightweight. I'm not convinced it does much for keeping makeup in place - it feels like a moisturizer to me and not much more.


Mascara -COVERGIRL -Professional Super Thick Lash Waterproof

Here comes the wet blanket. When I saw the previous reviews, I wondered how in the world I had missed this stuff at my age. Hint: my first mascara was Aziza (good stuff back then) in the mid '70s! And at this price? Almost unheard of. Next time I went out, I got some. I curled my lashes and was giddy with anticipation. I put it on and actually watched my lashes go parallel with the floor. The now-stick-straight lashes stuck together, appearing as if I had about five lashes on each eyelid. If this one works for you, more power to ya, and I'm glad you've found a good product at a great price, but as for me, good riddance.

Palettes -NARS Cosmetics -Endless Orgasm Palette

on 4/22/2019 10:58:00 AM

L to R, top to bottom:
Orgasm Ecstasy - soft beige with gold pearl - best for highlighting
Deep Orgasm - metallic mauve
Super Orgasm - iridescent pink with golden shimmer
Double Orgasm - iridescent pink-lilac with silver shimmer
Orgasm Fever - iridescent copper
Orgasm - metallic rose gold

Gorgeous palette of cream blushes and highlighters. Definitely metallic and shimmery, so use a light hand to achieve the look you want. Compact is the usual NARS 6-pan blush palette size, but the casing is metallic pink and the cover has a rounded, convex clear piece which adds an interesting visual appeal (but makes it harder to stack neatly, and will eventually scuff). $49.

Lipstick -Huda Beauty -Lip Strobe

I have this in Saucey which is a gorgeous metallic red, "a full coverage muted red ochre with rich gold and pink pearls." Love it, but worn alone it's definitely too metallic for workday. It works great to spice up the Liquid Matte Lipsticks, though (just what I wanted - mattes aren't really my thing) - just layer with a matte shade before either has dried down and blend together. I applied Saucey today, blotted to tone down the metallic, then added Icon on top for a work-friendly red; some shimmery bits still remain as well. Next I will have to try applying the matte first then adding a dab of the Strobe. Packaging is great, the base is clear to show off the shade inside, and the lid houses a flocked applicator tip shaped like a masonry trowel.


Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane

This gave me the worst skin ever! I have previously used the granactive retinol emulsion, and liked the results. However this oil based formula gave me the the most disgusting cystic acne breakout of my life. I am 37 with oily skin prone to small non cystic break outs before my period. This gave me breakouts the first night. I thought maybe my skin was purging, but it went on for a month. At one point I had 12 huge zits on my face and neck! Ew, also it even caused me to get a couple of styes in my eye, gross! The packaging sucks as well. It should be air tight.
Thankfully, I went to my derm and now I am on the real deal, Retin-A Micro .06%. My skin is looking great now. So ladies, skip this cheap greasy mess and go to your dermatologist and get real tretinoin(retinol) You may be surprised how inexpensive it is if your insurance covers it. I'm never using an over the counter retinol or any of The Ordinary products again. If you are acne prone do not risk it.

Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand -Hikari Cosmetcs Cream Pigment Eye Shadow

I have this in Honeydew, which I think was advertised as a metallic coral pink, or peach with shimmer, depending on where you look. It looks more like a peachy beige metallic in the pan and wears on me (AAB/NC25) about the same. It's supposed to be a cream shadow, but it doesn't seem like a cream to me - I've been applying with a fluffy eyeshadow brush like a standard powder shadow. The color reminds me of NARS Cyprus eyeshadow but with a more metallic finish and slightly peachier. I got this as a mini, which comes in a fliptop compact with black base and clear top; I find it fussy to open so I'm likely to de-pot. (The full size appears to come in a screwtop jar).
