Brows -Maybelline -Brow Drama Shaping Chalk Powder

Always on the hunt for a great brow product and with blonde hair and dark blonde brows it's often hard to find the right shade for my tone. This was labeled as shade 100 Blonde. It was still slightly too dark for me but would have been passable if I was going for Cara Delvingne brows.

Here is how Maybelline describes it :
Brow Drama® Shaping Chalk™ Eyebrow Powder
Bring on boldly filled, softly-shaped brows with Maybelline’s first ever eyebrow powder. The loose powder formula fills in smooth color, while the thick-to-thin brush applicator creates instant definition. Flawlessly shaped brows are made easy.

This is not a product that can be used on it's own and needs to be used in conjunction with another brow item like a pencil or cream to shape the edges while this fills in the center. It describes on the package how the thin edge side can do thin lines and the wide paddle side can fill in with color.

It sounds so simple and what could go wrong? Well, the powder has a LOT of fallout all over your cheeks is what. I've tried blowing off the excess and tapping it off to prevent it and it doesn't prevent the powder from falling all over with application. I've tried wiping it first to remove the extra, but then there wasn't enough to do the job so that didn't work either. Cleanup is easy and it brushes right away but I shouldn't have to clean up after. I am in a rush enough at 5 am getting ready for work and I don't have time to do extra steps like cleaning up after a messy product. It also does not do the edges like a pencil or cream can (I get that it claims softly shaped brows) but it looked messy and needed that edge created by a pencil and it needed too much fiddling with overall. This does look great once you get it on. It doesn't stay well though and even with a setting spray I was seeing patchy areas in my brows in a few hours and had to do some touch up.

I am very disappointed in this one and I did call Maybelline though and inform them why I didn't like their product so they can make some improvements. If you don't mind fiddling with this, it works okay but I don't have time for it so it's a not a fit for my lifestyle and needs.

Conditioner -OGX -Keratin Oil

I don't understand the reviews here but my experience with my long, fine, slightly ripply hair is that the product left it dry and unable to comb easily when wet. My hair did not feel soft or silky nor comb-able. Going back to Hask smoothing conditioner.

Styling Products -Silk Elements -Strengthen n Silk Thermal Silk

on 7/11/2018 9:31:00 AM

I have spent decades looking for a product that I can leave in my hair and go. I have some waves and because of the too often coloring routines, my hair can be very frizzy. I used this without the heat and I was so surprised of how soft my hair looked and felt. I tried it with heat and noticed that my hair got straight so easily. Most importantly, this is a product that when you wash out, you still feel how soft your hair has become. No need to use curling or flat irons any more.


Lips -Unlisted Brand -Erborian matte for Lips Soft As Powder Lip Balm

on 7/11/2018 8:30:00 AM

Very, very interesting. We constantly read about and write about MLBB-but this really is... in a different way. This is a little glass pot, $20 at Sephora. It’s a very siliconey balm (took off lippies because a stick would be better ) that folks in all lip lines, tints the lips a faint red, and takes about 100 years off your lips. As we age, the lips sink a bit-this is not a plumper-but it does provide the most gorgeous, natural lip I’ve ever seen. Please, please make a berry tinted one!

Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand -Farsali Unicorn Essence

This product is lovely. I bought it simply because it’s pretty & I thought it would look nice in my make up kit. But I actually really like it. It smells amazing & really helps stop my concealer from creasing and makes my skin nice and glowy. I use it in conjunction with benefit porefessional primer & they work great together. I will re purchase.


Eyeliner -Physicians Formula -Eye Definer- Automatic Eye Pencil

Great value! I bought this product in Dark Brown about 6 months ago, wear it almost every day, and it's still going! It lasts through my 8 hour workday, rarely smears. This is by far the best drugstore liner I've ever tried. It looks quite natural against my medium-fair skin/brown eyes, and looks best with very black mascara and red lipstick. The tip is precise and it can be applied easily and quickly. Sometimes for a slight dramatic look, I use it on my eyelid near the lash line. This will be my go-to everyday natural liner for years to come.

Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand -Farsali 24K rose gold elixir

I bought this product simply because it was pretty & luxe looking & I thought I would look cute in my make up kit (I just realize how bad that actually sounds) I didn’t have high or unrealistic expectations as it is simply a hydrating oil. There are no ingredients in this that will give you any dramatic results aside surface hydration. It is no different to any other facial oil. It does not contain retinol Rosehip seed oil does have negligible amounts of vitamin A which is why it’s great when paired with retinol. This is not a nesassary item it’s a very standard hydrating oil that’s been put in very pretty packaging and had gold flakes added (very pretty but serve no skincare purpose.) It’s very cute but you would get the same results from the Ordinary’s Rosehip oil. I would re purchase because I like the product but I’m aware that I’m buying it simply because it’s cute & I’m happy with that. I like that it’s multi functional I love to use it on my lips. Having filler I really like to keep them hydrated I also like to mix a little with a bit of sugar & Carmex lip balm for a nice lip scrub. It’s also great for thinning out foundation or cream products (works great with ABH cream contour palette. If you are looking for a oil that has more skincare go for Sunday Riley Luna sleeping Oil or if you want something to use like Farsali and don’t want to pay for unesassary extras get the Ordinary Rosehip oil.

Misinformation around product


Eye Shadow -Mary Kay -Mineral Shadow Iris

on 7/11/2018 8:14:00 AM

Got a free sample of "Iris" eye shadow from a Mary Kay Lady in a local clothing store who was patrolling the store for new clients.
The shadow itself would cost $8 (not bad) but, as with all MK, you have to buy the compact separately (blech.).

Not worth buying but for free? It was fine. A mid-toned purple.


Lipstick -Rimmel -Moisture Renew Lipstick

Rimmel Moisture Renew Diva Red or Red Alert has been my choice red lipstick for several years now. I've gotten compliments on the color, many have thought I was wearing a higher-end brand. I find the color and texture to be of such quality that it completes my make-up routine, and can stand alone on those days when I only have time for lipstick! I find that the Diva color, a deep red, looks best on my pale winter skin. I tend to get a slight tan in the summer, at which time I prefer the bright Red Alert shade. I often have dry, chapped lips and the moisture in this product definitely helps to soothe. The best part is that the first coat stays for about five hours, despite eating and drinking.

Liquid -Shiseido -Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation

I bought this because of Katleen’s review about it. I have combo skin with some dry patches on my jawline. At first I really hate it because I use it with mattify primer which make it look cakey and horrible on my jaw. Then I started using it with moisturize primer and it looks really nice I really like it. My face look fresh all day long. The weird thing about it is color. I have yellow undertone so I bought it in Golden3 (i’m between nc25-30) but it looks a little bit pink but it’s not that bad. I will buy it in Neutral next time.
