Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Head Kandy Hair Extensions

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/08/2015

SCAM!!! I used to order from Head Kandy and they were the best extensions. I, too, was confused when I saw the website had changed. Man, I should've done my research because apparently a lot of people have had terrible experiences.

Firstly, I received a coupon code for a $5 discount off my first order. It never worked and the claimed that whatever item I tried to purchase …

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Eyeshadow Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/01/2012

I am surprised by all of the glowing reviews for this. I have the first one and I use it all the time. I really love it. This is ok. Actually, the colors are strikingly similar so I'm not sure what all of this fuss is about. Holding them side by side I find it difficult to justify why I need both but since my Naked 1 is running low, I'll probably keep the Naked 2. I am annoyed that they …Read more

Liquid - Stila - Perfect & Correct Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

May/26/2011

I, too, would've never purchased this if it weren't for the reviews here that I stumbled upon. I've had bad luck with Stila foundations in the past and complete wrote them off. Now that the weather is turning hot and sticky here, I realized I had to find a new foundation after mine starting pooling on my face.

I swatched this on my hand in the store and I was …

Lip Gloss - LORAC - Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss

Feb/28/2011

Yup, it looks like I have found a new lipgloss obsession. I bought a two pack of these for a special price at ULTA because I wanted a super sparkly pink lipgloss for a trip to vegas. I got out to the car, tried this on and was ready to return it and then it... morphed. I have the 3d and 4d shades and both look tremendous over lipstick and last for hours. It is the most innovative makeup I have …Read more

Here's my best advice - if you like Nars Sheer Glow then you'll LOVE this. This foundation has great pigmentation, awesome color selection, a beautiful luminous finish. Also, I ordered from whiterabbit (not affiliated) and I have to say that it's some of the best customer service I've ever experienced. I have been matched to NC25 in the past (although it's a little too …Read more

Lips - Fusion Beauty - Lipfusion Color Shine in Flirt

Jan/14/2011

So I hate the price but I really do enjoy this product. I have probably 50 lipglosses at the moment and I choose this all the time. I have found that this really does plump the lips and it doesn't burn like the lip venom and it doesn't have some weird minty flavor, which I hate. It makes my lips feel slightly swollen. I already have full lips but while wearing this someone once asked me …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Opal

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/01/2010

Update: After using the opal for two months I started noticing that my undereye was looking stressed, veins became more prominant and I had to discontinue use. I will try it again soon but use it less frequently because my skin is too sensitive and I will make sure not to go above the orbital bone by accident. Original review: I think there's a lot of hate for this product because of the …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED [DISCONTINUED]

Aug/09/2010

This is something that lives up to the hype - and maybe even exceeds it. It's the most amazing eyeshadow palette I've ever bought and I knew it the second I tried on the first color. The eyeshadows are such an amazing texture and pigmentation. The eyeliner is fabulous, too, and stays well on my waterline. If you can get your hands on this, don't hesitate. I'm recommending it …Read more

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2010

UPDATE: So I found a trick that makes this last on me. I use moisturizer, wait three minutes, sunscreen, wait three minutes, and then Cargo HD primer/mattifyer, then foundation, then Cargo HD powder on top. It looks gooood for summer. Very natural in the sunlight and it lasts for about five hours. But, man, what a pain!!! Updated the lippie to four. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I was so excited to try this …Read more

It's surprising how varied people's experiences are with this lippie. I was hesitant about purchasing it but then decided to get it, if only to add to my collection. I am NC25 and did not think it would look good on me based on all of the reviews. I also have highly pigmented lips and thought it might look chalky. Well, I love it!! If I can get my hands on a backup, I will. It ends up a …Read more
