My favorite foundation is MUFE HD, but I have to say this a very close second. It goes on with moderate coverage... not too heavy, but not light enough that I feel like I have to pack it on. It last alllll day without coming off of clothes, napkins, etc. There is a good selection of colors which is nice since I have a hard to match skin tone. At this price, this is my go to foundation for everyday and MUFEHD for special occassions/going out.
Liquid -Revlon - PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup
katiexkaboom 12/11/2012 7:24:00 PM
Tried this and found the color/shade options to be limited. I didn't match any of the colors and was between two of them. It also looked very cakey despite having very little of it on. Did not look like skin if you know what I mean... masky. The consistency is very interesting but I think the formula needs some help. I would never want this on my skin again. The regular Photo ready foundation is mucccccchhhhhh better.
I absolutely love pink nail polish and this is by far the best nude pink I've ever found. It goes on pretty true to color and you only need one coat... aka not sheer like some polishes. Lasts pretty long and beautiful on many different skin tones. Love OPI but not all of their colors... this one tho is a winner!
Top/Base Coats -Essie - Good to Go! The Fastest Drying Top Coat
katiexkaboom 12/11/2012 7:18:00 PM
I really love this top coat. I am the WORST at sitting still after my nails are done and this has realllllllly saved me a lot of re-dos lol. I also use it when I do microbeads to do studs and it holds them in place very well. I have tried other top coats and they either take forever to dry, stay sticky, or (worst of all) barely last. I will continue to buy this since the its the best top coat I've ever used. STRONG AND LASTS LONG : )
So I have been looking for a nice light pink colored nail polish for what seems like years now, adn just havent found one that looks good, is easy to apply, and of good quality... UNTIL by chance I picked up the Pink Friday OPI color from the Nicki Manaj set. One coat and I was done. Its a nice rich color and not thin like other pinks. I hate when you go to apply a nail polish and its translucent.. This is not like this at all. GREAT PRODUCT AND SHADE : )
Wow! This great for all types of waxing not just brazilians or bikinis! It's the only thing I use on my underarms that works. It's not perfect but much less messy than anything I've ever used. Super cheap! $20 and can be used about 4 times for both underarms and full brazilian! TIP: Use strips, even though its striplless. It works great and doesnt hurt that much! Also, make sure to use the Pre-Hon and Pre-Epilation oil it will make everything so much easier!
My dad is black and uses this in his hair and after reading the bottle one day I put a little in my hair before flat ironing it. IT IS GREAT! It gives my hair moisture and shine without getting it greasy! It doesn't have a strong smell and has really helped to reduce my breakage. IT CAN ALSO BE USED AS A HEAT PROTECTANT! : ) need I say any more?
Concealers -Smashbox - Second Skin Long Wear Concealer
katiexkaboom 5/30/2011 7:40:00 PM
I got this concealer in the Smashbox FAQ's Color Collection through QVC. I already had a concealer but tried this anyway and have to say that this is my HG under eye concealer. Does a great job on the eyes and dark circles. Not as long lasting on blemishes though. Would definitely buy again adn would recommend to anyone who needs to brighten up their eyes or conceal dark cirlces!
Misc Beauty Tools -Bliss Labs - Poetic Waxing Microwaveable Waxing Kit
katiexkaboom 5/30/2011 7:32:00 PM
This was a waste of time and money! I am not a fan of hard waxes to begin with but this is sticky... takes foreverrrrr to heat up and doesn't work very well. It said six 20 second zaps would warm it up.... try like 10 and I have a new microwave. Super time consuminggg. I tried my underarms and all that happened was it stuck to my skin and took a little bit of hair out. I think other kits would be much easier, less messy, and work better. Don't waste your time with this!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Coconut Lime Verbena- Body Butter

LOVEEE THIS SCENT! Body butter is usually a little too thick for me, but I like this one! Would purchase again.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion
katiexkaboom 4/24/2011 8:32:00 AM
This is currently only available in the 15th Anniversary 24/7 set, but i have to say if you are a black eyeliner obsessed freak like me.... its worth trying to get your hands on! My mom and her friend bought the set and asked if I was interested in any of them. I immediately asked for this one! 95/15 is like $6 for each eyeliner! a great deal!!! This applies like a dreammm and lasts really well. I am obsessed with UD 24/7 eyeliners and had to try this to see if it really was the blackest black. DEFINITELY is. I can tell it is much darker than Zero and I would LOVEEEE to see this released as a permanent 24/7 eyeliner color.
I really am not a huge fan of lip products. I usually prefer a chapstick or some kind of balm or something. This is just subtle enough to give me the color I want with out anything too drastic. I also love the packaging! It makes for great, easy application and I rarely leave home without one in my bag.
I wasn't sure about these because they look kind of tacky in the packaging and displays, but I purchased these at my local grocery store on sale for $5.99 in Bling It On and have to say I was impressed. They apply very easily and are not as tacky as I thought they would look. I love the glitter ones because good glitter nail polish is very hard to find. I've had many comments about how much people love my nail polish. I think if you cut them in half and have short nails you could definitely get two applications out of one packet. Pleasantly surprised on this one : ) will be trying other designs!
Powder -Make Up For Ever - Duo Mat Powder foundation
katiexkaboom 4/24/2011 8:21:00 AM
I was looking for a powder foundation and decided to try this one since I use a bunch of MUFE's liquid foundations. I have to say they always have a shade for me and they always have good quality products. This specific foundation goes on very nicely, but I feel that it doesn't have a lot of lasting power. I'll put it on before classes and by the end of the day its pretty much gone. I even tried it as a setting powder over my MUFE face and body foundation and it didnt really do anything to create a longer lasting finish. Though I don't hate it, I will not be repurchasing. I'm sure there are better powder foundations out there.
This is possibly one of my absolute favorite shades! Love the coral tones! It is perfect for summer and definitely highlights any tan!
