CLICK ON MY PIC THAT I UPLOADED ABOVE TO SEE THE TRUE COLOR (2ND PICTURE)!


I really don't understand MAC sometimes when they name their eyeshadows lol. This really isn't gold at all. It's a mauve-y brown with a slight gold sheen.


I pressed my pigment into an eyeshadow pan. Whenever I use this color, I wet a synthetic brush with mixing medium & …

Cleansers - MAC Cosmetics - Cleanse Off Oil

Aug/11/2009

I've recently switched from mineral makeup foundation to liquid foundation, Revlon Colorstay to be specific. It covers so well, but it definitely is a bitch to take off.


This is an awesome makeup remover! It really does take everything off. However, I only gave it 4 lippies because of a couple things: I wish it was a thicker consistency because I feel like I pump it 2-3x to …

Blush - Bobbi Brown - Powder Blush - Tawny

My first ever Bobbi Brown product. Bought this at my local CCO for $9-$11 I really can't remember.


It's a really natural color. I love it! Most people don't like matte blushes, but I love this as an everyday blush. I used it practically Mon-Fri for school & it was so pretty. Didnt look "muddy" like what some reviewers are saying. Awesome blush! Only …

Foundations - Maybelline New York - Dream Matte Mousse

Jul/13/2009

I used this foundation like 4 years ago when it first came out. It was my first EVER experience wearing foundation & I wore it for my debutante ball. I did my own makeup because we couldn't hire a MA & I was pretty proficient in makeup so I figured I was fine.


The coverage was medium, but it totally looked cakey. It was not a cute look. Good thing my professional …

Mascara - RIMMEL - Sexy Curves Waterproof Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2009

I wanted to get the original mascara but I always need waterproof because I raccoon so easily & my curls in my lashes will only stay with waterproof.


Maybe I got a bad tube or something because the formula was super dry & I barely got any product onto my lashes. I've only used it once. I mean what's the use of using it again when it's still gonna be dry? I …

Misc Beauty Tools - Sonia Kashuk - Tweezer

1.0

Jul/05/2009

IDK. I got this because my pair of tweezers wasn't really grabbing a hold of the hairs as much & this had such a high % so I figured why not? I mean I have so many Sonia Kashuk brushes so I trust the brand. Yeah.. not so much.


Maybe my pair wasn't sharp enough or what but for what I paid $14.99, I was expecting a superior product. I was wrong. It didn't even …

Makeup Brushes - Philosophy - The Supernatural Brush

This brush doesn't really live up to the hype. I've found another brush that does everything this brush claims to do AND more. PLUS it's cheaper AND much more accessible to the majority of the consumers.


I'm talking about Sonia Kashuk's Synthetic Flat Blusher Brush.


Don't let the name of the brush fool you. It can be used for …

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

It does what it's supposed to. However if you spray too much, you start to smell all funky then your hair feels all clogged. Idk. It's just weird. If you purchase this, don't use it as a substitute for not washing your hair, that would be a bad mistake. just use it for taking out a little oiliness or adding a bit volume.

Jun/02/2009

I've had a few MAC blushes, but I really never used them. I either gave them away to fam/friends or swapped for them. But one day I was shopping at Costco & I go to the cosmetics section. Low & behold I see this MAC blush. I had no idea that Costco offered high end brands (right next to that was Shiseido, Stila, Bobbi Brown.. I know right?! lol). So I look at it thinking that it was …Read more

Jun/02/2009

I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS MASQUE! I went to Walgreens, Rite-Aid & Target looking for thing but could not find it. Until I went to my local Sally's Beauty & cleaned them out haha. I bought the giant jar ones bc I heard the tube ones were difficult to use.

I have acne & it especially acts up during the summer bc my face hates the sun for some reason. I always break out …
