I actually hated this. I was at Target and I thought... I'm going to treat myself and fancy up my shaving routine.


Just squirt some lotion on your legs in the shower and go for it. Or maybe hair conditioner. For one thing It clogs your razor to hell and back. You have to use a crazy amount to get any sort of lubrication for the blade and then the blade is just cram packed …

Blush - Maybelline New York - Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush

Let me just say that I love (LOVE) a cheek stain. I don't ever use powered blush, except maybe Mac but even then, I prefer a stain. I also love the dewy look; regardless of the event or the season or the appropriateness of it, I'm going for dewy.


All of that being said, this stuff is like rubbing lip gloss on your cheeks. It's shiny as a mofo. Like an old school …

Eh, I wanted to love this. The Abnormal Beauty Company kept showing up on my fb feed and I was immediately intrigued. They were running a deal, like $130 for a huge box of products from all the companies they host on the page... Hand Chemistry was one of them.


I would have bought the Retin-Oil anyway because I had been searching for it so I was pretty psyched when it showed up …

Styling Products - TIGI - Bed Head Candy Fixations - Totally Baked Hair Meringue

I love this. It smells amazing... If you like candy sweet smells, if you don't you should run. It also works like a mo-fo. In fact, you only need a very small amount and it's easy to use too much and then your hair gets a little sticky. My hair is down to the middle of my back and I only use 1 pump and that's it. Love it.

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish REDUCE REDNESS Primer

I don't think this does anything. I mean, I don't think it functions as a primer nor as a color corrector. I love a good primer and this just doesn't do anything. Maybe, if I had to stretch, I would say it smoothes my skin a bit but I don't notice it assisting my foundation in any way. Boo.

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner-Carbon Black

I bought this to wear to roller derby and weirdly, that's the only time it works. When I try to wear it as an every day liner it fades within a couple of hours. If I don't completely fix the lined area with eyeshadow it slides down and fades away.


The smudger is also kind of weird... It more pushes the product around than smudges it. And if you don't do your …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Butterfly Waterproof Mascara

Feb/01/2015

I bought this because I wanted a mascara to wear to roller derby where I sweat like a pig. This product does not budge even after 2-3 hours of sweating.


I took the star off solely due it to the damn flaking. About 6 hours after application it will begin it flake into your cheeks and that's kind of annoying. I generally don't need my makeup to last more than a few hours …

I love this crap. I don't know why more people don't like it. I have, oh, 20 mascaras ranging from drugstore to high end and this one is my favorite. It lengthens better than any of the "tube" style products I've tried. My lashes look as close to false lashes as I have even had mascara get them.


I have two complaints: 1. It can go on a little chunky and …
