Eye Shadow -Maybelline - inked in Pink Color Tattoo
MsPsylocke 5/21/2013 7:56:00 PM
I love this color before I wore it I did a swatch on my hand and it lasted over night till my shower. So this does have amazing staying power. I love the color as well it's a rose/champagne pink that I just love. I'm very fair so this color really shows up on me. I added Barely Beige as a base the inked pink on my lids with some Tarte purple eyeliner and tons of mascara. I was like wow it took no time to do and it looked great. Even my Nana liked my eyes and she is so brutally honest. I love how long this stuff lasts and the consistency is so creamy. I use a brush with the pink and so far my fingers with the other 2 I have and I just make sure my hands and brushes are clean before I use them. They go on like butter and stay on forever which I love. I have allergies so my eye waters and this stuff doesn't move. Also the pink is perfect for Summer. I'm so glad I got this and my other 2 and look forward to trying more because I like how it makes my makeup routine go so much faster. Faster and it lasts and looks good you can't beat that. Plus this pink I do think is universal with some seeing rose and others the champagne. Either way it's a gorgeous color that I will be using a lot. The Color Tattoo's if you haven't tried them ladies give one a shot. They really are excellent in my opinion especially if you like being low maintenance with your MU or high it fits both types of people. Recommended!
Treatments -Garnier - Sleek and Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment
MsPsylocke 5/19/2013 11:36:00 AM
Wow I'm an Argan oil nut and I saw this in Target for under 5$ so I said why not. I've used Morrocanoil,One n Only,Josie Maran, and countless others and I have to say this one is the best for straightening my hair! I wait till my hair is about 50% dry and I use about a silver dollars worth because my hair is very long almost to my behind, and super thick. It get's so puffy too because I'm naturally wavy so humidity isn't good to me. Well I really like this version. I straightened my hair in no time. It took about 20 minutes. It usually takes me almost an hour! It has cut my styling time down so much and I am so happy! My hair actually looks polished and not frizzy. I divided my hair into 3 sections and went to work and it wasn't work lol. My hair feels so soft and healthy and non greasy. I am so glad I tried this because I was running out of the One n Only and I said why not try this. Normally I do not use Garnier because I don't like how my hair feels but this I love! There is a very big cone as the 1st ingredient but argan is 2nd so that is very good. This IMO is an excellent hair product that gives my other oils a run for their money. I am very happy with how my hair feels and the whole styling process. For us ladies with thick,thirsty hair will luv this. Even ladies with fine hair if used sparingly I can see loving this product. Give this stuff a try ladies it really is a great product. Recommended!
I have these in the Peach and Grape. I love the Peach the best for colour on my lips and the Grape for moisturizing at night. I actually like the way these smell and i find they do hydrate my lips.I wish they would make the clear one without SPF for bedtime because I find my lips are softer from using these. There like a chap stick with a hint of colour which is awesome for the Summer. I have to agree the grape is more oily that's why I use it at night I think it sinks in better for me. I don't mind the consistency though. I really like these and will continue to repurchase my peach one as it's my favorite. I love the smell and don't mind the smell or taste at all. Granted I'm a gloss/balm user so I try all types. This is really a good product and I am picky. Plus they are not as expensive as other balms and for me they do moisturize my lips.
Misc Beauty Tools -Tarte - Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler
MsPsylocke 5/17/2013 3:20:00 PM
I saw this on the Tarte site and it was a really nice limited edition one with a groovy pink and purple handle design. It's the gold color and has 2 purple pads. I like that they give you a backup because it can pop out if you don't put it in securely. Honestly it wasn't till MUA that I even thought about using an eyelash curler. Bet heck if you ladies do there must be a reason. And there is my lashes look hella better when I curl them. I have very long lashes that would get in my eye. Not anymore thank goodness! I like the purple pad it does make it a better time because I remember I got turned off because I would pinch my eye or maybe I was too young. Who knows but now my lashes look excellent with mascara. It's easier to apply and I look more awake. This baby doesn't pinch me and it gives me a great curl that I like. I'm stoked I got it because I really like it, it makes getting my eyes the way I like so much better.
Cleansers -Boots - No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water Normal/Oily
MsPsylocke 5/14/2013 10:41:00 PM
I found this little gem in Target a few days ago and I love it! I had ran out of my Caudalie and went to Target in hopes of finding something good. I love micellar water and am interested in trying all different brands. So when I saw a Boots one for around 8$ I was like heck yea I'll try this. You get 200ml and it has a pump top which is perfect I find with these cleansers. It has a light,pleasant, floral fragrance and it doesn't hurt my sensitive skin at all. I only need about 2 cotton pads in the AM and 3 when removing makeup. It's so light and gentle yet, it really does a good job. I got so much dirt from the day off my skin. It's for normal to oily skin yay! Oily girl here and I must say as a morning cleanser it keeps my skin fresh and matte almost all day. It really balances your skin out plus it's gentle and safe to use on your eyes. So far no breakouts and I breakout fast if a product isn't for me but this one is. Plus you can't beat the price either. I still want to try so many others but this one is great because it's easily located for me and the price point is totally worth it for me. I'm still dying to try the Bioderma but for now I'm thrilled to have this till I can try some others. Ladies seriously though if you find this at your local Target give it a go because it'll introduce you to micellar water and it really does a great job I look forward to using it! I really am liking Boots products great job on a usually pricey thing. I'm just so happy these waters are becoming more popular in the US they are so good! I'll buy it over and over.Recommended:)
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - 24 Hour Color Tattoo Precious Pearl
MsPsylocke 5/14/2013 8:10:00 AM
I love this color I got the last one by accident I thought it was Too Cool but no it was this thank goodness This is one of the new Spring 2013 colors.I love this color for brightening up my eyes. It has so many beautiful colors in it. I see red,pink,blue but it's not overpowering. Like when I apply it to the inner corners of my eye it's like instant awake. I love how long they last and with this I had no creasing at all. I find when i use these I can't use primer it will totally ruin the look so if I'm using these I use Barely beige as my primer because for some reason every primer i tried it would come off. So for me no primer with this because it does the job. I also like to apply it like a light eyeliner to open the eye. Too much white can look not so hot on me so I keep it simple all in all I love these color tattoos and can't wait to add more to my collection.
I love this little tin of lippie goodness. I have it in the Vanilla and Macadamia kiss and it is so tasty and hydrating. I usually will put a thick amount on at bedtime and wake up with the softest lips. The tin isn't the most hygienic granted so I use this at night after i wash my hands. I wish they had this in a tube but I love the formula so hand washing it is because it's very soft lip butter. I really love it though and will buy more because they do make my lips feel so good. The moisture you get is fantastic in my book. This stuff helps my lips every time I get dehydrated and I feel it hydrates them from the inside which is excellent. It's a great product and the tin is very cute. I really like the whole thing. Recommended!
Powder -Tarte - Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder
MsPsylocke 5/11/2013 9:04:00 PM
I got 2 new ones of these one for me and one for my Nana for Mothers day. As she really needs something for shine I think this will work as I love it. I got the swim team edition so the packaging is just beautiful! I have been using this powder I think for a year now it's been a while and I really do like it a lot and it's my go to. It is because it really does control oil without giving you that super matte look. I don't like to look fake and with this powder I don't. I also like how you can use it to spot treat certain areas. A spot here add a little extra powder and your good. I rarely need touchups with this powder which is what I like and for the money what I get. It lasts ages I still have deluxe samples with plenty of product I use for travel. Also it makes my skin feel super soft and it hasn't broken me out. The clay does help us oily girls and with the hot summer coming I'm glad i have this! I would really try a sample because that's what converted me. Plus the one hole is all you need as you need less of this powder than others on your skin which makes it last forever. Don't have problems with photo's either my skin just looks really smooth.NW15-20 for reference. Definitely Recommended.
One of the best real chocolate products I have used. I even have a chocolate soap which I'm almost out of:( Hunt for that next but 1st on to the scrub. It's really good it warms on contact not hot just warm it's really relaxing and the smell with the real pieces of chocolate really make my shower a more enjoyable time than it already is. I luv my showers and with this scrub my skin feels so soft and smells so good. I first wash with my salux and because it's a sugar scrub I can use it after I shave because the salux pretty much eliminates bumps. So the scrub can really get in and moisturize my skin. The container is pretty big so it's misleading in that sense cause you don't get that huge jar filled up. You do get enough but I save mine more for pampering and use my treehut daily because I don't want to run out. My Target is hit and miss with this product so I'll probably stick to Ulta on this one. I really recommend it though because your skin feels so smooth, you smell great, and it's the best part of the shower because it's just so yummy!
I got this in a deluxe sample so i have used it a lot and so far it's just not working for me like UDPP. I like the glow on my eye's in general with some eyeliner and it's very pretty. In terms of keeping my shadow on I was so upset because one eye completely creased and came off. Like I had a strip of my skin then my eye makeup not a good look at all:( Now sometimes from allergies one eye tears and I can usually handle my eye makeup or it will at least stay on with the UDPP. With the Too Face I got about 3 good hours so that was a bummer. I will use this on it's own as a shadow but as a primer even Tartes was a lot longer lasting then this one. I know their glitter primer is awesome and that I will get but this I will not purchase in full size. I will use up the tube on days when my allergies aren't so bad.It's really pretty so it's a shame it didn't work for me.:(
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Tanda Skincare System
MsPsylocke 5/9/2013 10:46:00 PM
I have the Tanda Zap Blue Light and I actually find it does work on pimples if you catch them before they start. Or I find if I pop one and zap it it'll flatten faster and healing time is cut down a lot. What would take a week now only takes 4 days for example. I really like that because I can deal with the pimples I get a lot easier. I use Retin A so I only get occasional ones now but they can be the ones that you have to pop. With this I do not which, saves my skin from scarring. It really has stopped those painful underground spots more times than not or made them less than they would be. I don't think this would be good for treating acne it seems more a spot treater for mild acne. That is what my skin is and what I use it for. Would I buy it again I don't know yet it has worked for me and mine was a gift, but I am partial. If it broke I just might but you do go through a lot of batteries so I would recommend rechargeable because it's a lot more eco friendly. I'm still on the fence so far I put no but I will update in time because this thing is pretty nifty I must say.
Beautiful cleanser in my opinion. It really cleans my skin without over stripping it. It makes me skin feel really good. You only need the tiniest amount to cleanse and it smells very nice and light. I notice my pores are clean and minimized. My acne scars are going away or plumping. Who knows but it's working for me. My skin is very even toned as well which I love as a super pale chick. Seriously I touch my skin it turns red well this is totally helping my blotchy issues. It's great for me and I use Retin a and it doesn't dry me out when I use them together. Excellent summer cleanser I luv it and a reasonable price considering it will last ages. I have oily/combo skin in the summer so this stuff is working great my skin feels balanced not to dry or oily. Highly recommended will repurchase!
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - The "Wet" Brush
MsPsylocke 5/9/2013 10:51:00 AM
Oh wow thank you MUA for me coming across this review! My hair for starters is almost down to my behind,long,thick, and knotty! Well I ordered the purple wet brush from evilbay for 8$ total with shipping not bad. So yesterday I was taking my power shower and did a hair mask. I threw my hair up with the mask to do it's thing while I showered. I always put my hair up with conditioner especially heavy ones b/c in the summer I could breakout on my back and i want to avoid that. Now to this brush...omgosh I took my hair down and got to work...well what work? It was like a gentle person brushing my thick unruly hair. It was so gentle and felt soo good. I barely shed at all and my hair looks so nice with just my hair oils gotta keep it soft and with this brush no more pain it's amazing how it worked on my hair. It looks pretty, natural, and I really like my hair! I am getting one for my nephew too he has ethnic hair that tangles so bad this will be the best for a mom with a kid with hard hair to brush. Plus us adults who's hair is impossible to brush the way we like. Now we can which, makes me so happy:) Highly recommended!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Barely Branded Color Tattoo
MsPsylocke 5/5/2013 10:04:00 PM
I have this colour and Precious Pearl so far even though I have pink undertones I love this colour. i just applied it to my lid no primer to see how long it would last plus I'm a crease queen. Well I just took it off 10 minutes ago and had no creasing what so ever! This really wakes up my eyes and if I curl my lashes and apply some Tarte mascara and some NARS blusher with the Tarte BB primer omgosh I look natural and healthy. I can't wait to try this as a primer i think it will go will with my Naked 2 palette. So far I love it. It lasts doesn't crease, and makes my eyes look really big. I also use some Tarte eye brightener but no liner and some Amazon powder and I look totally natural and healthy. I didn't need a lot of the Color Tattoo to get the desired look. So all in all this is a great product and I will be purchasing more without a doubt.It's a good primer or eye brightener and for the price I'm happy.
I really like this foundation and I'm a BB Cream girl. I just fell in love with Tart's BB cream then I had to try this. I put this on with my RT foundation brush and I only needed the smallest amount to cover my face very well. I think it's medium to light coverage because I don't have many spots and it covered everything with one layer. I didn't have to build it up to get the coverage I needed. It can be built though for skin that needs more coverage. I had it on at least 10 hours and my skin looked perfect. No flaws,blotchyness,spots,Etc. My skin looked flawless. It really impressed me that something that stays for 12 hours feels like nothing on your skin. It's very light on the skin and this is the only foundation that I will wear. Right now this is my HG! No cakyness or it not mixing with my moisturizer and primer. I got this in a set but it's a huge amount but I will buy the regular size before I run out as this is the only foundation I will use atm.It also doesn't make me break out and it controls oil very well so it's the perfect Summer foundation. Give it a try ladies it's really good and I hope you have the same awesome results.
