Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2018


At the time I was looking for a top coat, this and Vinylux Weekly were the highest rated topcoats on MUA. I chose to try the Vinylux, but ended up getting a mini bottle of Seche as well when I saw it on sale at Sally’s. SV lasts about the same as Vinylux, which is to say 4-7 days before chipping without a base coat. And that’s really as long as I need my polish to last, since after a week I …

Highlighters - wet n wild - Color Icon Rainbow Highlighter - Unicorn Glow

May/26/2018

The rainbow highlighter trend is just up my alley, makeup-wise, I guess it’s up my makeup-alley, lol. But at the moment I cant afford to get one of the high end ones like Too Faced’s or the original from Bitter Lace Beauty. So of course I was delighted to find this one for $4 at Walmart. While this is supposed to be “festival makeup” I don’t care, I will wear this look winter or summer, to school …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Electric Pressed Pigment Palette

Created with Sketch.

May/17/2018

What makes for a great eyeshadow palette? Obviously good quality eyeshadows(i.e. not chalky/powdery, good pigmentation, smooth buttery texture, minimal fallout) is is of prime importance. However I also really want the palette to have a well thought out color scheme. Meaning the colors aren’t just a random assortment that just happen to share a container; they were designed to be used together …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Creative Nail Design - CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2018

Like many other reviewers, I just got this to use as a topcoat on my collection of assorted brand polishes, not with the Vinylux polishes as recommended. However, the issue that I have with it is one I can’t imagine being remedied by using it with the matching polishes. In short, it bubbles. Sigh. This topcoat has plenty going for it. It doesn’t have an overpowering chemical smell. The brush is …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - LA Colors Extreme Shine Gel Polish

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2018

I bought this in Damsel, a delicate pale lilac. So my one lippie rating comes with the caveat: the other(particularly darker) shades may be lovely, I couldn’t tell you. I won’t be finding out though. This polish seems to have a somewhat runny consistency, and is sheer enough that I would need at least two coats. I say “would need” because I never got a satisfying enough result to leave it on my …Read more

Polishes - L.A. COLORS - Color Last Nail Polish

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/16/2018

My dad bought this in black because he’s been experimenting with his look and wanted to try nail polish. So I don’t know how much it cost. I assume not much though. I took it to use under some iridescent loose Micas I have from TKB Trading. I seldom bother with nail polish because it always seems to chip on me almost instantly, and if I can’t count on it looking nice for 12 hours, it’s too much …Read more

Moisturizers - Trader Joe's - Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Jun/08/2015

I make most of my skincare and body products myself; moisturizers, cleansers, toners, body lotion, body wash, etc. But sunscreen is one thing you cannot reliably make for yourself. I found this product through Paula Begoun's "Beautypedia", and I'm on my third or fourth bottle. You'd be hard pressed to find a moisturizer w/ sunscreen for less money than this, yet the …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Kuumba Made Zen Rain

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/16/2014

Let me start by saying that I am very very picky about perfume. I dislike probably about 90 to 95 percent of all designer fragrances(the sort you'd buy at a department store or Sephora; Versace, YSL, Armani). I don't want to generalize, there are some very nice designer perfumes but to me, most of them smell totally cloying and unpleasant or very cheap and boring. I discovered Kuumba …Read more

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/05/2014

I, like many others, was attracted to this sunscreen because of the high spf. I think that's the main selling point of this sunscreen. I got it last fall. I have since learned a little more about sunscreen and I think this sunscreen's spf is too high, for me at least. Here's what I've heard about spf: the spf number doesn't tell you how complete the protection is, only …Read more

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Rose Jam Bubbleroon

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2014

I really love LUSH's floral scents in general,and this is no exception. Sometimes it's hard to find good rose scented products and fragrance; they tend either to not really smell like rose to me, or they tend to be too old fashioned, "old lady" fragrances. Rose Jam somehow manages to be both modern and classic. Rose is of course the star of the show, but there are undertones …Read more
