BB Cream - L'Oreal Paris - Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

3.0

Nov/28/2012

I was very intrigued when the BB trend started, and since I tend to love almost all of L'Oreal's products I went with this one first. I do not love the little needle nose tip, it's hard to get back into the long slender cap sometimes. The formula comes out white with blue beads, and even when I emulsify in my hands first those beads tend to feel gritty on my skin. It matches my …Read more

Polishes - wet n wild - FastDry - Teal of Fortune

Absolute junk. The color is pretty on the bottle, but it took 3 coats to even get a semi-opaque finish. The drying time was longer than expected for a quick dry, and the glitter looks cheap and not distributed evenly. The polish chipped in the first day of wear for me. I guess you really do get what you pay for sometimes.

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

ICK. After falling in love with L'Oreal's Infallible creams, I thought I would try Maybelline's version because they were on sale and had a color I wanted to try. Whereas my L'Oreal shadows are creamy and easy to blend, this was sticky and putty-like. The color payoff sucked, I could see my lid in streaks even after 3 coats. It made my lids feel like I rubbed Elmer's …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash Lots of Lashes

I have always wanted to like Great Lash, because of its insane popularity and cute pink and green tube, but I always hated it. I wanted to try Baby Lips and Wal Mart had a pack with this mascara in Very Black and a tube of the balm for $5, so I picked it up. Ironically, I ended up disliking the balm and loving this mascara! The brush is perfect for my eye shape and the formula makes my lashes …Read more

I love these polishes. I am so impatient and drying drops and sprays seem to mess with the finish of my polish because my hands are in water all the time, so fast-dry polish is the best route for me. This comes in so many colors, and is pretty cheap most places. Always under $5. There are several finishes, but most of the colors I own are the creme. The coverage is amazing, one coat and the …Read more

Styling Products - AVEDA - Be Curly Curl Enhancer

I have tried every curl cream in the world for my fine, wavy hair and this is the clear winner. It makes my waves look perfect and soft, and it doesn't dry crunchy or get greasy. It is expensive, almost $30 for a tube, but worth every penny (and you only need a small amount). I love this stuff!!!

Nov/28/2012

I have been curious about products like this since Wen came on the scene, but I could never plunk down the money to try that brand without knowing how I would like the whole "cleansing conditioner" thing. I had a coupon for $2 off of this, so I bought a bottle. I really love the smell, sort of a warm amber. I use this on days that my hair feels really dry and won't take well to …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Torrid

This is my daily go-to blush. Even though I am very fair, I like a bright flush and this is the perfect shimmery pink-coral that pops without looking cheap. The price is well worth it, I have used it every day for years and haven't even hit pan yet. It wears well too, sometimes I need a retouch after an 8 hour day but not too much.

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/28/2012

I wear liquid liner on my top lid, and like a really sooty black line on the underneath to sort of match it, so this pencil is a godsend to me. The texture is really great and glides right on, even on the waterline, and the black is really intense. I took off one lipstick because it does smudge or run halfway through the day, but I will try UD's 247 liner next if the reviewer below feels …Read more
