Polishes - Orly - Bare Rose

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/27/2010

It's called 'Bare Rose' but it reminds me of Strawberry/Cherry colored Chapstick. It has the same opacity and is exactly the same shade of sheer deep pink. There is no sparkle and when applied creates a glassy candy colored glaze that is delicious to look at, like you just candied your fingernails. You can get the candied look if you're willing to layer it 3x or more …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYC New York Color - Liquid Lip Shine

I have this in Sheer Ruby and I think it's pretty nice. It's got a medium amount of pigment, not too sheer. I really like the scent which kind of reminds me of raw cookie batter; there's a hint of something that smells a bit like vanilla extract but also kinda like coconut oil. Whatever it is, it smells sweet and delicious. No flavor though, which I like. It's a bit sticky …Read more

Love love love these polishes, seriously. I have two of them, the first one has no name but it is a milky ivory color that goes on mostly clear. It's very nice when I want a natural look. The second one is called Ruby Jewels and is a ruby red with chunky red glitter that is the exact color of Dorothy's shoes in the Wizard of Oz.


The best thing about these polishes is …

Hair - Conair - CS54 Nano Tourmaline Ceramic Curler & Straightener AKA You Style Multi-Function Styler-Straightener

Sep/15/2009

Sorry about the long product title, but I find there is a lot of confusion among Conair products because they are advertised by so many different names. For clarification, this is model CS54 the "As seen on TV" item.


If you're looking for a straightener, you will not be displeased. It heats up fast (30 seconds according to the back) and this is true for the *inner* …

Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - Gel Eyeliner

Dec/04/2007

This is just my initial review of this product as I've only just gotten it and used it a few times. I had really high expectations of this liner since everyone here rated it so well, and it's a little different to what I imagined it would be. I ordered this online, never having seen or tested the product in stores.

First off, it's not really a gel, it's more of a …

Treatments (Face) - Mario Badescu - Drying Lotion

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/23/2007

I bought this a while ago so bear with me. It's pink, it comes in a little bottle, and has the consistency of calamine lotion. I used it a few times, forgot about it for a while, and then threw it out when it separated and all the chalky pink gunk floated to the bottom. Honestly, it did nothing for me. It was not drying, or irritating, or beneficial in any way. It was just pink spackle; not …Read more

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - Nizoral AD Shampoo

4.0

Jul/11/2007

I deleted my previous review because after seeing a doctor I finally figured out what was going on with my scalp.

When I originally bought this I was suffering from seborrheic dermatitis, which is kind of like a yeast infection of the scalp. Nizoral contains an antifungal in it that kills the yeast, which solves the problem, but is pretty harsh on the skin. When I had SD, Nizoral …

Misc Beauty Tools - SHISEIDO - Eyelash Curler

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2007

This is my first eyelash curler which I bought after reading the reviews here. I've only had it a little while but so far it has done a great job. I have very almond shaped eyes because I'm half Asian, and the curler is almost a perfect fit. It curls the lashes right at the base and gets most of them except the really short hairs towards my inner eye (which I can still get if I do some …Read more

Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Bayonelle - Cinnabar Ice

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2007

I got a set of Bayonelle lipsticks as a gift and was pleasantly surprised at the quality. They aren't super pigmented but the color is nicely buildable. One stroke for a hint of natural color, or apply with a brush for a solid color (without that yucky, too-much-lipstick feeling.) This is a cheapy brand here in Australia, about 6 dollars a tube. Cinnabar Ice is my favorite so far, very …Read more
