Fabulous!!! Super fast drying, imperfection covering and long lasting.
This top coat can turn just about any polish hard and shiny in a matter of mintues. Even not so fancy polish will last just like the expensive brands. I've even had some success in getting rid of air bubbles and smoothing out smudges.

The only negatives are 1) not available in most drugstores 2) bottom …

Top/Base Coats - Essie - No Chips Ahead

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2015

Essie, what are you thinking? Did you even test this product? This is far and away the worst top coat I've ever tried. Despite letting it dry for an hour, the polish ended up being dented and even dulled in some areas (looked like your matte about you which does actually dry). Whether or not it chips in a few days is irrelevant; it looks bad right now! I'm not sure how this ever …Read more

This is a great highlighter! I've used everyday since I got it. I really like the gel forumla and that it does not feel cakey to put on other areas of my face besides undereye area. I hestitated buying it since it was not easy to guess which shade would be right. I went online and found some swatches which helped me pick the right one the first time. I don't use MAC foundations so …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational The Buffs Lip Color - Nude Lust

This is a very nice neutral nude. I did not find falling on overly cool or warm side on my skin tone which is light/med warm. It's uncomplicated and totally wearable and looks especially fab with a smoky eye look. I do like a liner with it to give it a little extra umph. I don't think I'd try it with a no make-up look since that's not what this look is about for my skin …Read more

Palettes - Too Faced - Matte Eye

It seems the consistency of the shadows is the issue. I can get a nice look from using the tufted suede and chinchilla shades with a touch of dark brown in the outer corner, however the fashion and the white do not go on with enough pigmentation and blending the darker shades can be tough and end up looking uneven despite great brushes. I've experimented with primer and without, the result …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

4.0

Nov/26/2014

Started using this after I could not seem to find my old Mabeyline volume express anymore. I tend to use bush/comb style wands since they work well on my long thin lashes to prevent clumping. This is really a very good drugstore product! Goes on beautifully, good volume (after 2nd coat) and does not clump. Only cons is brush is hard, so getting it up in lash line is not the most comfortable, …Read more

Moisturizers - Andalou Naturals - Fruit Stem Cell Science Super Goji Peptide Perfecting Cream

Nov/24/2014

I was drawn to the product for the ingredients which appear to be a little more "healthy" than a lot of other products. I was looking for a peptide cream, however was concerned about break-outs since my skin can be a bit oily and I've had some bad experiences. I am happy no issues so far.

I have been using for 3-4 weeks, so I don't think this is long enough to …

Mascara - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Smoky Extravagant Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/24/2014

Right now this is my go-to mascara. I don't care to spend a lot on mascara since it does not last long. I try to use drug store brands and have found some pretty decent ones. This is better. This is the very first masacara which actually gets my long thin lashes to move upward and curl - at least least for the most part. It also gives some nice separation and thickness on first coat …Read more

Liquid - Sisley-Paris - Phyto-Teint Eclat Liquid Oil-Free Foundation

Nov/24/2014

If you are concerned about parabens and/or talc, this product has both. It is similar to Chanel Perfection Lumiere in that it shrinks larger pores for a flawless look, only more so. 2 big differences are the frangrance and price. I don't usually like to be so blunt, but I can't help it (maybe the price has something to do with it). The smell is hideous, and the price is over the top …Read more

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Straight

Oct/31/2014

They changed the formula and packaging a few years ago. This is a slightly less potent verison, but still a very good product. I would not say excellent since it does not impart same amount of shine as the previous formulation. It takes away some of my volume, but gives my hair body and sohistication. It will hold a little shape if you don't want pin straight look so it's got some …Read more
