No. Just... No. No volume, no length, no cat eyes, no nothing! In the trash it goes. Cute packaging, though.
Primer/ Corrector -Hard Candy - Sheer Envy Skin Perfecting Primer
mwebba1 6/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yes, HC! Very well done. So, I've worm primer every now and again. I started with the ax primer without SPF, liked how it worked under my studio fix fluid and then never purchased it again when I ran out. Then I got my hands on smashbox's very popular primer and it broke me out something terrible! So recently I tried this after purchasing it at wal mart. It definitely makes my makeup glide on seamlessly, helps my concealer not get that cakes look and keeps my makeup fresh all day. I do have to blot as per usual as I am an oily girl but this definitely helps with keeping my makeup from running or fading throughout the day. I will definitely repurchase when I run out. HG!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Snow Pink
mwebba1 6/8/2013 3:36:00 PM
I love this for slapping on and running out the door. I agree with the first review, you get less product than the old formula. However it is not just clear, there is a very light pink and the Mylar glitter is very pretty. I will finish but with so many glosses I will not repurchase. My favorite of the new formula is Super Natural.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Super Natural
mwebba1 6/8/2013 3:33:00 PM
I absolutely love this. Dupe for MAC Deelight and NARS Chihuahua. And for just $6!!!!!! I will definitely purchase again. This is the new formula and packaging for these glosses. I loved these glosses before but please note they no longer have SPF and you get less product than before. The new formula has vitamin e and avocado oil, though so that is a plus. Super moisturizing, doesn't last as long as the old formula and has no fragrance.
Yes! This packaging is so luxe for a drugstore product! I love this! Just 4 lippies because it dries out so quickly! I mean my Maybelline Falsies, Benefit They're Real and Diorshow Extase all last ages. No, I do not ever adhere to the rule about 3 months. So this does separate every single lash and thicken. I have been asked what I'm doing differently since starting to apply my mascara on the tops of my lashes and the underside. Love this, will definitely buy again.
Well, Black Opal has done it again! I swear. Everything I get from this brand is excellent. This is very pigmented foundation. I purchased it in Hazelnut as that is my match in Black Opal. I wear MAC NW45 for reference. This has the perfect packaging! I took too much out because I didn't expect it to best creamy, rich, thick and pigmented. I have oily skin. I wore this with Hard Candy primer, applied the foundation with a MAC 109 brush. Dusted some pressed powder over it, and I had to blot twice throughout the day. But my coverage stayed intact. Very excited.
I absolutely love this neon orange nail polish. I wore this to Miami on vacation, it is perfect for heat! Lasts very long, doesn't chip like some neons and I will definitely purchase this again.
This is not good for makeup brushes. I tried to use it then had to clarify all my human hair brushes in order to get them back fluffy. So for that I giv it one lippie. I also use this to wash silk scarves and shirts for work. For that it is okay. Bottom line: I will not be purchasing this again. It doesn't clean brushes effectively. For example the MAC 185 brush's white hairs do not get white with this. Only the Clinique brush cleanser gets it back to pristine white. For shirts, I feel like I can use something that cleanses better.
Oh man based i love this! Been using careprost since the beginning of the year and this mascara does it all for my lashes. Length, volume, thickness and everyone mentions my lashes when I have this on. I got it at Target for $5.94, who can beat that? None of my high end mascara can, that is for certain. I am about to be 27 and I have been using Maybelline Volum's line of mascaras since high school. They continue to slay the beauty industry with their superb offerings. Well done again Maybelline! This is my HG.
Conditioner -Palmers - Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Repairing Conditioner
mwebba1 5/24/2013 9:28:00 AM
The smell is absolutely intoxicating. I used this for a cowash on my African 4 b hair. Made my hair feel clean which is quite interesting but the slip wasn't the best I've had, though detangling was a breeze. Also, it didn't make my hair feel conditioned. Again, love the coconut smell but when I am done I will not repurchase. Maybe I'll try this with heat next time...
Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - Loose Setting Powder - Translucent
mwebba1 4/7/2013 7:55:00 AM
Love this setting powder. I have used it with all my liquid foundation and this makes my skin look flawless. It is quite expensive but lasts a long time. I am very impressed and would definitely purchase this again. Does a pretty good job with my oily skin. I only have to blot around lunchtime. I generally apply my makeup around 7:10 a.m. So that is a decent amount of time.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush
mwebba1 3/28/2013 12:19:00 AM
This is okay but I will not be purchasing again. When I want volume I was hooker lashes, know what I mean? And this just didn't give me vavavavoom. Got it in blackest black and it was like there was nothing on my lashes. Looking forward to trying the Rocket Volum Express as I bought a tube of that at the same time. Will wear this on days I wanna be understated.
I really love this foundation. I first bought this in 2010 when I found out about it. I used a Mac 190 foundation brush to apply. Fast forward .3 years and I have been using the Mac 109 to apply this every day and I am in love with the finish! I am Mac nw45 and Mahogany matches me perfectly. Strange because the Mahogany in the Colorstay foundation for oily skin does not match me, I have to mix with Caramel. Anyway, I'm so in love with this, the finish and the price. Also, I do not see any glitter in this but whatever. I will repurchase again and again. Seriously, the drugstore is the best place to get makeup.
Conditioner -Neutrogena - triple moisture deep recovery hair mask
mwebba1 3/13/2013 4:43:00 PM
I love this! So moisturizing and with a light scent that doesn't linger at all. I used this after a protein treatment and my hair felt so moisturized. This cost me about $6 at Target and I will certainly repurchase. I am African with 4b natural hair.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Megalast in Purty Persimmon
mwebba1 3/3/2013 8:59:00 PM
This is a slightly less pigmented version of Mac So Chaud. I will be rocking this color all summer long. Just got this at CVS for $1.99 and I am quite pleased. It is a little shiny for a matte lippie but I like that.
