Ayy, this was a disappointment, and THAT, ladies and gents, is an understatement. I mean, overall, the quality of the shadows in this Colourpop 'You Had Me at Hello' palette is mostly on par with what I have come to expect from Colourpop's pressed shadow formula. However, this is a far cry from being anywhere close to a *mauve-toned* palette that the brand is touting it to be all …Read more

L'Oreal, can we talk? In the year 2018, Paraffinum/Mineral oil is one of your top ingredients? Really? Are we still in the uninformed 1970s? Can we now come to a collective conclusion that mineral oil just...isn't the best for us, at all? Coconut oil is a better moisturizing component, and we all know this, because many brands have long since opted out of putting mineral oil in their …Read more

I have long since discontinued use of this. I ruled all my products out as the culprit, and narrowed it down to this primer being the culprit that was the sole contributor to my deep, painful cystic breakouts/boils. My skin is PERFECT without using this, so as soon as i found out it was this, I stopped using it. Shame, because it actually worked, and smoothed over my pores, and while it …Read more

I usually like to switch up my lip colors quite often, but out of ALL my drugstore and high end lipsticks in my possession, Milani Plumrose is one of my 4 most used. I'm near the point where I'm about halfway through this lipstick bullet, and that's saying A LOT for me and my 60+ lipsticks in my arsenal. As for the shade, I surprisingly own NOTHING like this. The name …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish by Kate Moss - 08

Sep/18/2015

I've long since pitched this. It was very drying and yielded a very cakey formula and texture on the lips, applied patchily, and while these types of colors normally suit me, this color, combined with the finish, just looked 'off.' The color pretty much showed up as a rosy mauve-brown on my NW15 skintone, which I liked, but the formula was oddly very drying, and accentuated every …Read more

Apr/27/2015

When I bought my first Essie nail polish, I thought to myself, 'For the price, these better wear like IRON, and better have iron as an ingredient' lol. Sephora Formula X has a formula that quite frankly, Essie only WISHES it had, and the Sephora line is only a couple dollars more per bottle (NOT AFFILIATED WHATSOEVER, I can only wish haha). The quality and formula for Sephora X is …Read more

Well, for starters, the exorbitant price is a MAJOR turn-off. Especially for what it is, and the fact alone that it gets used up so quickly, no matter how much I tried to ration my uses of it. When I first bought this I only used it strictly for humid days if I was going to be doing outside activities and had a 'natural full face' on (which I usually do anyways, no matter how much I try …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Lancôme - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

Aug/26/2013

I got a generous-sized bottle of this as a gift with purchase, and I must say I really enjoyed it. It took off my eye makeup and mascara with the most ridiculous ease (I refuse to wear waterproof mascara, but I assume it takes that off with ease as well, but I haven't found that out for myself). But with it, my waterproof eyeliner just melted right off like a charm, and Bi-Facil didn't …Read more

Low pigment with too too much sparkle. Just too sheer and dry of a texture for my liking. There's not really much else to say about this, other than the price. I paid about two bucks and some pennies for it.

For a nice, simple, glowy wash of color on the lids, NYX's eyeshadow single in Sahara is my drugstore HG. It far surpasses this in quality, and is only a …

I have this in the shade Peach Perfection, and I'm basing this review off of that color alone. I don't use this on its own, because even though it's just a tinted pale peach shade, and doesn't have much pigmentation, it still manages to leave behind a very odd-colored film on my medium pigmented lips. I just opt to use it over other colors I want to lighten up just a bit, or …Read more
