So I've already written a review on the clear base coat that you must must must use (or another Seche base) for this to work properly and now to review the best part about the pair. I love Seche Vite. No other bases or top coats have the lasting power that Seche does. The top coat is thick like a gel and super shiny but never goopy and always glides on perfectly (just make sure to never touch the brush to your nail without product in between that causes imperfections in the polish). This product will usually make the color last for about 3-5 days. Which is actually really good for just a regular polish. HG for sure. Hope it works as well for you as it does for me!
I'm a little surprised to see that people are using this as a top coat. It was to my understanding that you Seche Clear is a "crystal clear base coat" and is to be used along side Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. In any case.... I love this product. This makes me my nail polish last for at least 3-5 days and up to 2-3 weeks on my toes. No other base/top coat has ever worked as well and in all honesty they don't work as well without the other. The Seche Vite doesn't bond without the base coat. So you have to get both but, its so worth it. I'm on my second bottles currently :) HG for sure
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof

Lately I've been going for more of a natural look. Basically BB cream and mascara only. I'm sick of my mascaras that attempt to look like "false" lashes. So I decided to try a natural-look mascara and read all the reviews for Full n Soft and I bought it and I absolutely love it. So here are some pros and cons. Hope this helps others. CONS Ugly packaging (made me skeptical to purchase at first) No real volumizing effects Minimal length effects ***I have long lashes naturally*** PROS Perfectly natural looking True black coloring No clumps what so ever (even after 3-4 coats) No spidery effect No flaking No smuding Easy to apply Great seperation This will be my new daily mascara. But, remember this is for a natural look. I'd still wear my DS blackout when going out but, for everyday use this is will become my go to product I'm sure.
Never understood the hype behind this product. This product is clumpy and adds no length or volume. Don't bother with it. AND DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!
Let me start off by saying this is NOT my HG. This is the most adequate concealer I've used up to this point. This covers dark circles BUT NOT WELL. Everything is completely concealed. Great coverage. Feels awesome. Glides on smooth and blends very well. No white cast in photos. Just wish it covered dark circles better...but then again what even does... Would repurchase. Wouldn't recommend to those with circles dark circles.
My skin is dry but I do experience oil around my nose and t-zone after wearing make up all day. I got tried of reapplying pressed and mineral powders all day long because it tends to build up and therefore become cakey so I bought this knowing it wouldn't put too much color back on but, would help keep my make up in place. After using it on top of various foundations and setting powders I have to say this just no good. This always made my make up look so incredibly caked on in some spots in non existent in others. I can't see myself repurchasing. Overall a bad product.
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

I had to change my review on this product completely so I just deleted it and I will on the medium/deep I've been using as well. Coverage - none to light Feel going on - amazing Lasting power - none at all Texture and feel throughout the day - greasy, oily Look - shiny Break outs - yes Evening out skin tone - yes Will I buy again? No...I've got some acne from this product and its really shiny, oily, greasy and doesn't last at all. Someone help me find a better bb cream cause this isn't cutting it.
Let me start off by saying this is not the worst self tanner out there. Trust me there are many that are way worse. But, don't get me wrong its not that great either. This is an AVERAGE self tanner. Let's call this what it is. It's a self tanner its gonna be a little orange. Now its not as bad as other self tanners I've used where I looked like an oompa loompa. When I asked friends and my boyfriend if I looked orange I always got a no. To me I think I have a slightly golden maybe a hint of orange glow. Typical of most self tanners or at least okay ones. When it comes to streaks its all in how YOU apply it. Use it after you shower and exfoliate. Apply it like a lotion in circular motions. Use it SPARINGLY on feet and toes. They will turn orange. Dries very fast but leaves a sticky residue...I don't suggest wearing clothes after putting it on for a while and use a moisturizing lotion maybe 10-15 minutes after to cut down on the sticky feeling and the glitter.... Yes this is probably the most glitter I've ever seen in a self tanner. Seriously insane. Good thing I'm not that picky about stuff like that or I'd be really annoyed. (They should probably put that on the packaging) One application kept me looking tan enough for about 3 days. No need to put this on everyday like it says...I'm sure you would turn orange like that. Overall...I wouldn't repurchase not because its horrible but, because I'm sure there's a better self tanner out there. I'm okay with using it until I find that one though.
Treatments (Eye) -BeneFit Cosmetics - Ooh la lift!

This stuff is expensive and settles in lines easily. Doesn't do very much at all other than that. Waste of money.
I love this stuff. Nothing calms the redness around my nose and cheeks like Cortizone 10. I am very pleased with this product. This will definitely become a main staple of my daily skin routine.
I'm so unsure about this product. I use it after moisturizing and priming it does offset redness but it leaves a slightly chalky affect and you definitely have to cover with concealer afterwards. I'd like this more if that chalky coverage wasn't so bad and if it covered better. It's 3 bucks though so it's not big deal. Probably won't buy again though
Well used to use this and only this for a while until I found a mac eyeliner that I really liked...but I didn't like the pencil and the fact that you can only use their sharpeners or it'll destroy the pencil..its true...I've tried. So after destroying the pencil with a different sharpener I went to liquid eyeliner. I've been using liquid eyeliner for years now and I just recently started using this again. ITS SO MUCH BETTER THAN LIQUID. Its so much easier to control and wears a lot better and comes with eye make up remover a lot easier. I can create a wing a lot easier with this too. I love this and its a good price too. I need to start spending less on make up so I'll probably stick to unstoppable from here on out. I guess its my HG eyeliner.
My friend has this palette and I use it almost everytime I go to her house and get ready with her...yeah I know unsanitary...who cares... I wish I got this instead of naked2. There is so much more variety in this palette and I'm okay with all the shimmer in this palette especially because it's not all the same brown basically.... Oh well maybe next time to everyone else who has it youre lucky!!
This stuff is okay...nothing to write home about I give it such a poor rating because it left me skin looking chalky dull and dry I think I've come to realize that I just can't use mineral based foundations but, even at that the product never covered evenly and always made me look like i was wearing make up in some spots and not others I guess this goes along with the dryness of my skin Also the package kind of sucks...never figured out how the stuff worked...do you open u the whole thing and dip in the brush or shake it like crazy so the product goes up the brush...idk either way not a good product for dry skin
Favorite black eyeshadow ever. Always blackest black but remember its Matte its easy to blend its stays in one spot i never need primer for any mac eyeshadow anyway my HG black eyeshadow ....now for the other colors...I wish I could find my favorites for others welp at least I got one!
