Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Washable Mascara

Apr/09/2017

I am so glad I didn't pay for this mascara. Out of all the mascaras I have tried, both drugstore & high end, this is undoubtedly the worst. The rubbery wand is a major drawback in the application of this product. It gives me less control & the bristles are short & uncomfortably stubby.

And God, is it clumpy. I had to put in serious effort to remove a good deal of …

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Midnight Cowboy

Lovely product! Even more so that I received this as a free birthday gift from Ulta. (This retails for $19) I'd never tried Urban Decay shadows before, so trying this out was a first for me. I love the champagne/nude/pearlescent/pale pink shade it gives me lids. This is the perfect inner eye corner shade or, as I use it, as an all over lid color.

The pigmentation is good. It does …

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

Apr/09/2017

Based on the inconsistent reviews I've been reading, I'm wondering if I simply got a bad sponge? I bought this from Walmart recently (I believe it was $4-$5) and expected so much from something that completely dashed my hopes.

This blender doesn't give my skin an even finish with my normal foundation. I find that I'm using the pointed end most because that flat end …

Apr/09/2017

Oh, Colourpop! You are the love of my life. Not to mention my wallet! I've been wearing Colourpop's Ultra Satin/Matte lippies for about a year now. Every one I have had, I've loved. I can't tell you the name of every single shade - but I can tell you I'm currently wearing "Mimmy" from the Hello Kitty collection. (Got it on sale, whoop whoop!)

The …

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2017

Sigh. I so wanted to love this foundation - My boyfriend bought this for me as a birthday present, as he knows I'd been eyeballing it for a while but always guilted myself out of buying it. I love Kat Von D cosmetics in general so it feels disloyal giving this three lipsticks. Alas, after continued use & having tried this with about 10 different primers, I can't pretend that it …Read more

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - Boi-ing

Mar/31/2017

I feel a bit traitorous giving this product three lipsticks when it's almost always in my make up bag - but let me explain! As a spot concealer - that annoying little vein on my right cheek, my unwanted beauty mark, unwelcome red spots, or acne flare ups - this is great! There is some effort involved in making this concealer not look cakey, as it is thick. I usually warm it up with my middle …Read more

Pressed Powders - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Perfect Finish HD Pressed Powder

Mar/31/2017

Wow! What an excellent find! I was in search of a good replacement for my Derma Blend loose setting powder - which I would have loved to repurchase. Alas, my high end setting powder was only a sample from an earlier Sephora Play! box and I was in search of a cheaper option. I hadn't even researched brands/reviews of any drugstore products beforehand. I just went with my impulse buy and …Read more

Mar/31/2017

These nail polish remover pads have been so helpful! They're quick to remove my nail polish - even in the creases of my nail bed where my polish is normally hell to remove. As advertised and more, it removed my polish easily & quickly - not messy & so convenient for on the go/travel. Would definitely repurchase!

Blush - Unlisted Brand - LAQA & CO. B'lighter in Peacher's Daughter

Mar/31/2017

I received this as a sample in a past Ipsy bag and have been using it semi - regularly. I'm not normally drawn to cream blushes (which this is) as I normally use powder blushes. I've grown to love this! It has become a staple in my every day make up bag & in my looks on an almost daily basis.

The formula is a light, creamy, blendable cream blush that has the faintest of …

Treatments (Face) - CHANEL - Hydra Beauty Micro Serum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2017

I used a teeny sample size of this product over the course of three days. (Yes, three!) You really only need a small amount - perhaps not even a full pump of product should cover your entire face. This is super hydrating & a tiny bit packs a punch.

My only scruple is that it feels a bit heavy on my skin. Almost tacky. I haven't had this experience with other serums, but …
