Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Shout Loud Satin Lipstick

I have this in three shades - Chic (a coral-y medium nude), Dirty Talk (a bright berry), and In Love (a medium mauve/pink) and I LOVE them!
These are incredibly comfortable and hydrating on my perpetually dry lips, but they also last so well! I wear Chic almost daily right now (since it goes with so many eye looks and outfits) and I can get through two cups of coffee before needing to touch …

Lip Gloss - Smashbox - Gloss Angeles Lip Gloss

I'll get the one bad point out of the way first: You don't get enough gloss for the price. At 4g, this shouldn't be $20 USD. At this price point, I expect 5g or more, since that's typical of other glosses in this price range. But other than the price, this gloss really ticks all the boxes!
I have the shade Hustle and Glow, which is a pretty rose gold with pink glitter. You …

Concealers - NYX Professional Makeup - Born to Glow Radiant Concealer

This is beyond a shadow of a doubt the best concealer I've ever used. I only really use concealer under my eyes, and I cannot stand matte formulas in my undereye area since it'll look like a crepe-y mess within minutes.
I decided to give this concealer a shot, and I really love it! It covers my dark circles (which aren't terrible to begin with, but with this concealer …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Exhibitionist Uncensored Mascara

Editing my original review. While this looked gorgeous for a little while, within a couple weeks, this got incredibly clumpy in the tube and now looks really bad on my lashes. At first, it gave me wonderful volume and length with no flaking or smudging, but now, it's incredibly hard to work with. I'll chalk it up to way too much product coming off on the wand, which wasn't a big …Read more

Lip Gloss - Pixi - Beauty Lip Icing

I'd been eyeballing this gloss in the shade "Toffee" for a while at Target, but never made the plunge until today, and I'm so glad I did!
First off, this is a mostly clearly gloss with a very pretty, somewhat dense shimmer packed into it. It's not huge chunks of glitter, but it doesn't look like a frost either. It's in between the two, really …

Lipstick - IT Cosmetics - Vitality Lip Flush 4-In-1 Reviver Lipstick Stain - Pretty Woman

5.0

Well this was a surprise hit! Nabbed this yesterday at Ulta and immediately fell in love the moment I applied this weird little balm stain to my lips. I'm calling it a lipstick rather than a lip treatment due to the fact that it's definitely more cosmetic than skin care, but that's just semantics.
I got the shade Pretty Woman, which looks like a blackened berry in the tube …

Lipstick - ColourPop - Just A Tint Lip Crayon

5.0

I was not expecting to like this! But ohhhh how I love it!
I picked up A Go Go at Ulta for $7 USD and expected to just get a slight tint and some balmy texture, but what I got was a lot more pigment, longer than expected wear time, and a lightweight texture that melts into my lips, making them soft and supple for hours. That, and this shade is perfect for my light, olive complexion, even on …

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Vice Lipstick - Sheer

This is the first time I haven't liked a lipstick in the Vice range. I picked up the shade Wrong Number, which is a very pretty light, warm pink that brightens up my olive complexion and looks amazing for minimal makeup days.
However, I found this particular formula to be quite drying. The wear time was impressive for a sheer, shiny lipstick, but within a couple hours, my lips felt dry …

Eye Shadow - Julep - Eyeshadow 101 Cream-to-Powder Shadow Stick

1.0

2 months ago

Yuck!
First off, I don't know if I got a bad batch or what, but this stuff smells like gasoline and turpentine. It's really unpleasant.
Second, the wear time rather sucks. It creases even over primer, since you have to apply so much for it to show up. Seriously, once you blend this out, it just disappears.
Also, I got the bronze shade, which looked like it would have some …

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess Sculpted Volume Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

For me, this is the world's okayest mascara. It doesn't really build well, so once you get a little bit of volume, you really can't layer over it to get mega volume. It begins to clump and look sticky if you overdo it. Honestly, I far prefer the Bareminerals Lashtopia, which I've been going back and forth with for the past couple months.

The packaging is great though …
