Polishes - Sally Hansen - Lacquer Shine - Lustrous

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/30/2008

I picked this color up because it appears that my local drugstore stopped carrying Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out. I had never tried the Lacquer Shine formula before, it was the only nice solid black at the store, and it was BOGO, so home it went. At first I was really surprised at how messy it was, much more drippy compared to well, almost every polish I own. I had to adjust the way I …Read more

Concealers - bareMinerals - Well Rested Under Eye Brightener SPF 20

Jun/08/2007

I started using my BE bisque again for foundation, and really needed some to conceal around my eyes. I have extremely dark circles and broken capillaries from eye surgery as a child. I checked this out at Sephora, swiping it on my arm. It looked too light, chalky and yellow so I passed it up. I had never had good luck with yellow concealors before anyhow. My mom, who uses this daily, let me try …Read more

Eyes - Unlisted Brand - ANDREA Lashes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2007

I use the Andrea PermaLash individuals in short brown flairs. I have tried several times to use full sets of lashes, only a few times getting it right, and even then I can't seem to find the "right shape" for my eyes. Although I always read to the contrary, I find these easier to apply and wear. I just apply 3 - 5 flairs to the outer corners of my eyes for a really natural but …Read more

Polishes - Orly - Love Each Other

4.0

Jun/08/2007

I love this color. Normally I don't like to spend this much on nail polish, but when I saw this, I had to have it because it's unique. It's clear with irridescent lavender sparkles. I find it shows up fine with two coats, one doesn't show enough and any more doesn't seem to make a difference. Has good staying power, but I agree with other reviews that it definitely needs …Read more

Self Tanners - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Glow Daily Moisturizer and Natural Skin Tone Enhancer for Fair Skin Ton

5.0

May/19/2007

I love this! I am so glad that I read the reviews and went out and got it. I do notuse it as a moisturizer in the morning, I use it every night after I wash my face or after I spray my body with the Sublime Glow medium spray. I'm a very pale N4 and this just gives me that great touch of color I've been wanting for a long time. I wish this came in a non SPF version. I understand why, but …Read more

Self Tanners - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Glow Spray

May/19/2007

With summer already in full blast here is FL, I was deciding I needed a little color. I used to tan nicely when I was younger, now I just seem to burn without any deep color and break out with heat rash. Last year I used a few different self-tanning lotions and was only able to use them on my legs successfully. Even then, some of them the smell was so obnoxious I would use them once and give up …Read more

Cleansers - Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser

Dec/02/2006

I have combination skin that usually is on the more oily side. I recently started on a new BCP as part of a treatment for endometriosis and now with my hormones out of whack, my face is a mess. All I had were harsher skin cleansers at home, these along with my breakouts and the weather getting cooler outside made my face very flaky and irritated. I had used and liked Aveeno's line of …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lip Varnish

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2006

I bought this in Speed Demon. MAC's website describes it as a "deep plum with soft pink pearl". I'm a NW20 with light brown hair and green eyes and plum and violet shades usually flatter my complexion very well. Even the swatch looked really pretty on MAC's website. However when I got it and tried it on, totally different story. I know these are supposed to be more of a …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Night Lights

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2006

I really like this color. It's black with fine multicolor glitter. Xtreme wear does tend to have a thinner consistancy, which I like, but it means that it takes more coats for dark color build up. It look me three coats on my toes until they appeared black, not streaky grey. Even then, Night Lights appears more of a dark gunmetal on me than black, which I think looks rather pretty. The …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Veluxe Pearl - Crystal Avalanche

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2006

When I was putting together a MAC shadow palette, I knew a staple color should be a shade of pearl. Crystal Avalanche is perfect. A beautiful pearl white that is perfect for blending and highlighting, not a garish/clownish white. The texture is so nice being that it is a Veluxe Pearl, not at all chalky like many white shadows. Would definitely repurchase.
