This is my go to lip product now, I am really loving it and impressed with the quality in this drugstore product. The formula feels great on the lips, it's velvety and moisturizing. The finish is more of a velvety matte, not a 100% matte so just be wary of that. Especially if you put too much on, it will appear more glossy. I suggest wiping a bit off the tip of the applicator before …Read more

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - EverPure Smoothing Shampoo

Bought this because it said sulfate free and gentle on colored hair. The lather is very nice, but that's the only plus side. This stuff really dries out my hair and strips it of nutrients leaving my hair very frizzy and dry. And I know it was this shampoo because before using it my hair was not frizzy, and after I stopped using it my problem was fixed, so I don't recommend, like many …Read more

Shea Moisture is an amazing company and this soap does not disappoint. I don't consider myself to have "troubled skin" but I could still see the difference this soap made for my skin in just one wash. I usually have a few small whiteheads each day but the morning after I used this soap I woke up with zero new breakouts!
This works better than some high end cleansers I have …

I picked this up at Sephora because after trying their Skin IQ matching, this was one of the only foundations that had my shade, and a reasonable (compared to other high end) price.

Pros:
-Great color: the skin iq did work, and this color is perfect for me. I got shade 3.0 which is very yellow, I recommend it for Asian complexions
-Blurring effect: Does a great job of …

Lipstick - wet n wild - MegaLast Lip Color - Bare it All

Apr/12/2014

This is the first nude lipstick I ever bought! Since it was so cheap I picked it up on the whim, and I will definitely be trying other shades in this line. I think the color is a good match for a wide range of light-medium skin tones. It makes my lips look matte and sexy, but although it is good and I have no big problems with it, I think next time I will look for something with a little more …Read more

I'm not rich by any extent, but I'd rather spend the extra money on a real fragrance. I used to like BBW a few years ago, when they had their simple fragrances. Now almost everything smells like generic sickly sweet vanilla/fruity/floral vomit. Me and my boyfriend agree that there are way too many people walking around doused in the sickly sweet chemical smells of places like BBW and …Read more

The formula is ok. The brush is terrible. There is way too much product on the brush and when all this product goes on my lashes it looks terrible. I would not recommend for anyone with fine lashes because it will clump and make your lashes stick together. And if you try to comb out the product that just deposits more product on your lashes, so I realized the more time I spend putting on this …Read more

I rarely review anymore but I just had to say I am in love with this! These are like magic. It only takes the lightest touch to make them go on super pigmented. Blends beautifully, and when I wear it like eyeliner it doesn't budge at all! I bought this as a replacement for my favorite urban decay bourbon eyeliner, and this is better because it is the same color, more intense, without the …Read more

First foundation I bought, and I don't see the point in trying anything else. This is amazing!! I am Asian so my skin has some yellow undertones but this looks very natural on me. I have this in "calming honey" or something like that and it's a perfect match. My skin has redness around the t-zone area and this is perfect for covering redness. When I'm wearing this my skin …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - XXL Curl Power

Feb/12/2011

I bought the XXL Curl Pro mascara, which I think is the same thing. I'm really surprised! First of all, I have Asian hair so my lashes are very fine and point straight down. I hate waterproof mascaras because they are a pain to take off and damage your lashes over time. However, non-waterproof mascaras are too wet and heavy so they undo the curl in my lashes afterwards. Also I hate curling …Read more
