Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

I got this because of rave reviews and I'm really disappointed. The brush is extremely curved and too bristly for my liking.
It clumps lashes horribly and gave mine absolutely no length or volume even after curling them.
It's also nearly impossible to remove. I spent probably four or five minutes wiping my eyes with eye make-up remover, long after my shadow and liner was …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil - Perversion

Jun/16/2011

Hands down the best black eyeliner I have ever tried.
It is the blackest black ever (almost makes Zero look brown in comparison!) and super long-lasting. I wish Urban Decay would make this a permanent collection eye liner as it's now the only black eye liner I want to use!

Definitely worth all the hype! I made my Surf Baby order online the first day it came out, and was heartbroken to find that my Hibiscus lipstick wasn't in my parcel when it arrived. It was 'backorder canceled'. =/
I called MAC and they let me know you can order from free-standing stores themselves though, and luckily the MAC in Vancouver had nine left! Soo after going through …

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Eyeshadow Single - Brulee

I got this because of the rave reviews here on MuA.
This product did not disappoint! It's really nude, it pretty much matches my skin tone. I use it all over my browbone and lid as a base every time I wear make-up.
I have veiny eyelids and it evens out my skin tone perfectly! Very pigmented, not chalky in the slightest and it's super cheap! Will be hard to top this.

My current HG setting powder for liquid foundation.
I'm so glad I picked this up! It applies perfectly. It's very light, very matte and long-lasting. It sets my foundation perfectly and leaves me with a very flawless finish. I use a powder brush to buff it into my skin and the sponge it comes with to get tricky areas (under eyes, around nose) and for touch-ups throughout the day …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation

May/29/2011

I got this because it's gel-based and I heard it would be great for dry skin. It's very heavy, like someone has said below it feels like a thick cream.
My problem with this is that it's extremely hard to blend! I feel like it dries the second I put it on my face and if I add any more to even it out I look extremely cakey (using small amounts).
I …

Polishes - OPI - Not Like The Movies

May/27/2011

This is probably the most unique nail colour I own! It looks silvery/shimmery grey but reflects as lavender and olive green at different angles. It also dries extremely fast. It's my current favorite nail polish, I'm gonna be reapplying this for quite a while. ^_^
My only qualm is that the finish is a bit streaky, but it's barely noticeable. It's also not very chip …

Such a lovely colour. It's a true pink on me, I use it with all of my pink lipsticks/lipglosses and it gives them the perfect finish.
Great staying power and applies very well. I'm so glad it's part of the permanent line now, cause I was panicking and thought I'd missed it in the Quite Cute line (only thing I really wanted from it).
Very happy, will repurchase.

I was apprehensive at trying a green nail polish at first, but it was in the clearance bin for only $1.49 (normally $3.50 CAD) so I figured what the hell.
It's a lovely dark green shade with a little hint of sparkle. I'm surprised at how much I like it! People comment me on it more so than regular colours, I guess since it's so unique!
This is the second Sinful polish …

May/18/2011

I agree with the previous poster, I am not 100% impressed by the colour pay-off.
I think the texture is amazing and super blendable, but the pigment isn't as intense as I thought it would be. I recommend applying it wet as well.
It still looks great and I am happy with my purchase.
I just wish I got a different eyeshadow duo as my first from NARS though! I played it safe with …
