Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild -2% Milk

I don't know what's wrong with this polish, but it's not like any other (I own 4 different shades).
2% milk is a sheer polish that goes on streaky, even after two coats it still stays streaky.
I'm not a huge fan of the shade. It's tag too yellow (unhealthy looking) for my liking.
Tossed it away and took it off from my nails after a single application. Bad!

Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild -Wet Cement

A beautiful expensive looking color that doesn't flatter my complexion. I have the warm fair-medium skin tone and this polish looks too muddy on me.
I think this shade looks the best with fair cool toned skin.
Great formula though, an awesome brush. Fast drying, long lasting.


Lipstick -Maybelline -Colorsensational Inti-matte in Beige Babe

I enjoy the colour enough (though it is a very very pale nude) but it gets so dry and make my lips so so crusty and dry it's not even funny. I purchased this as an alternative to a liquid matte lipstick but it's even more drying than any liquid. Even on exfoliated and moisturized lips it looks crusty. The worst part is it doesn't feel dry when you rub your lips together so I went around the whole day with these crusty lips without even noticing. It also settles into every flake and line in your dry lips. Next time I will definitely go for one of their regular nudes and not the intimatte line.

I never react to A N Y T H I N G - but after 2 weeks of using this my forehead and chin area were filled with bumps. I've read that others struggle with the same consequence from using this cream, so I recommend everyone to stay far away.

This product smells weird and broke me up badly. I have sensitive, combination skin that is very acne-prone. I bought it as I heard many good things from influencers on YouTube, try it at your own risk!

love this moisturizer.
doesn't leave skin greasy and absorbs quickly, its cheap, and INCREDIBLE FOR DRY FLAKY SKIN.
ive had flaky skin my entire life and three months of this and no flakes.
i tried everything, 80 dollar exfoliators from sephora, oils, moisturizers, special foundations, everything, and three months of this and the flakiness is almost completely gone.
this is the holy grail of moisturizers for dry skin, 10/10 would recommend, (plus its hella cheap so what do you have to lose)


Lipstick -Maybelline -Color Sensational in Bare All

I really like this one!!

As a pale person most nudes are too dark/warm to look like nudes. But this is seriously gorgeous on my very light skin! It is quite pale but shows some of my natural lip pigment under the formula which gives it a pink tint. When I first wore this I was a bit scared it would give me a concealer lip. But after wearing this and looking at it in different lighting I feel that there's enough pink in this to not look concealer-y. It's definitely a bold color since it's so pale as it tends to show any dry skin so you definitely need to scrub your lips beforehand. I usually don't go for bold colors but there's something about this really pale nude that is just amazing on already fair skin. I would highly recommend this!

Lipstick -Maybelline -Color Sensational The Buffs-- Blushing Beige

I usually don't wear nudes, but this is pretty nice!

Finally a lipstick that looks like the name- light beige with a hint of pink. Just enough pink to not look weird unnatural on the lips, yet just enough neutral beige to be a true nude, which makes this color quite wearable. This works well for my pale skin, and I think it could also be great for medium skin as well. Even though I'm not the biggest fan of nudes I really like this because it's an understated color. This is perfect for either a smokey eye or just a no makeup makeup vibe (perfect for the office). Overall a pretty color that suits many skin tones.

great product.
i was recommended this project by my doctor a few months ago for my acne and im incredibly happy with the results.
first of all, its an incredible value, i payed i think 15 dollars (Canadian) for this large container, it has an unoffensive barely there scent and doesnt irritate my sensitive skin. it also really helped with my acne without stripping my skin so thorougly of oils it feels tight. its excellent for removing makeup as well.
so overall the pros and cons are:
pros
unoffensive smell
good value
works well on sensitive skin
does'nt dry out skin
works well on acne prone skin
can be used to remove makeup


cons
not a super pretty bottle
so in conclusion i would absolutely recommend buying this, as its cheap and works well on all skin types.


Eye Shadow -Tarte -Make Believe in yourself Eye and Cheek palette

I had been drooling over this palette since it was released but couldn't justify the purchase because I already have plenty of colorful shadows and only wear them from time to time. Well, it is currently on the Tarte site for $26 with an additional 25% off, so I finally bought it. Wow, I love this so much and am so glad I broke down and got it. My other colorful shadows don't have great staying power even with primer, but these hold on all day long. I generally just pat a color over my mobile lid with my pinky finger. Though this is a colorful palette, even the "brights" are somewhat muted, so I can wear them to work if I pair them with a neutral palette and just put one of these colors on the mobile lid. This does have one matte shade, which is a perfect transition for my NW13 skintone. I'll save that for when I travel with this since I can just use another matte neutral palette at home - I didn't expect this to be a stand-alone palette. I think I'm the lone dissenter, but I love the highlighter. It looks more beautiful and natural than any other highlighter I own on my NW13 skin.

Finally - the packaging! SO beautiful! And the shadows smell faintly of vanilla. I usually hate scents, but love this.

Eye Shadow -NYX -Hot Singles Eye Shadow (new formulation)

I bought two of these because there was a sale going on at Ulta and the colors/packaging drew me in. I got these in "Bad Seed" (red) & Epic (purple). I did use another one in a gray shade a long time ago but I cannot remember what the name was.

I swatched them both, not very good but you can't always judge by a swatch on the arm.

I've been using Epic for quite some time but it's kind of difficult to apply. I always use eye primer but this requires applying it to the eye at least 3 times. It's very sheer and I didn't care for it. :/ it ended up going in the trash.

All in all, the packaging is cute but it's not worth the money and the color payoff isn't that great.

I'm going to try to use "Bad Seed" and give an update, but I don't have high hopes for it.

I didn't need another neutral matte palette, but I was lucky enough to score this on the Tarte website for 50% off with another 25% off - so it was around $20. I absolutely love it! The colors apply beautifully and I can wear every color. And the scent is to die for.

Lips -Wet 'n' Wild -Lady and the Vamp

I was expecting this to be more purple than it was because the tube is quite purple. This was a pretty berry pink, but I was pretty set on having more purple colored lips than what it delivered. I'm giving this 3 stars because the color payoff was very different than what I expected, but it might be just what you're looking for. Like the other colors in this line, this makes your lips tingle. I would not repurchase.

I've uploaded a photo so you can see the color.


Lips -Wet 'n' Wild -Megaslicks Balm Stain in Made You Pink

on 12/11/2017 8:02:00 PM

The tube looks like a subdued mid level pink, but on my lips it is pigmented bright pink. This isn't my favorite color, it's just a little too Malibu Barbie for my usual style. I'm giving this 4 stars because the color is much brighter and more pigmented than the tube makes it out to be. Like the other colors in this line, this makes your lips tingle. I would not repurchase.

I've uploaded a picture so you can see the color.
