Hair Color - Beyond The Zone - Blond Brilliance Express Nine Level Powder Lightener

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2016

Why were my results so different from others? Not everyone's scalp and hair is the same. I started my grand entrance into the platinum blonde club with a lot of research. I liked the added ingredients and was intrigued that it would lighten up to nine levels. I purchased this at my local Sally Beauty Supply to know it was fresh, authentic, and so I could pick the saleswomen's brains …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Hard Candy - Fast & Fabulous Makeup Setting Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/30/2015

Too legit to quit!
Pros: Only $6/64mL.
Mattifying without being uncomfortable.
Cons:
Only at Walmart
I would like to see an even finer spray nozzle on this.

This has set traditional foundation and the Garnier Anti Acne BB Cream set with Coty Airspun alike.
Where it really shines is the BB cream/powder combo. BB creams, even American ones, need a …

Eyeliner - Hard Candy - Stay In Line Eyeliner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/22/2015

It breaks my heart when a product from HC doesn't work out, but this liner had no staying power for me. It smeared, and the black was more charcoal. It glided nicely, but that was it-I had to go back over to build color.

Having a scientist or research papers to quote does not a reliable source make, nor does it mean the conclusion is correct. Bottom line is that any personailty, guru or otherwise, has a stake in making money. I would suggest EWG website over Paula's after having a look through. http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyebrow Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2015

It is rare that a product lives up to the hype, but the NYX Eyebrow Gel is fully deserving of it. This will be a staple product on my vanity. Natural or strong, this will do the trick for whatever look you want.
The pigmentation is incredible-you will not need to layer, layer, and layer some more as with mascara wanded brow gels or powders. No fiber nonsense to deal with.
One …

Mascara - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Smoky Extravagant Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/28/2014

I recieved this as my birthday gift from Sephora. I was very surprised by the formula and brush, which is a rarity for me. I am very picky when it comes to mascaras.
This brush can actually be as intended. The largest part did a wonderful job of grabbing my stubborn outer corner lashes while the thin end didn't overcoat the inner corner. I simply rotated the handle and it grabbed and …

Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Assorted Brushes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2014

The only white handled one I own is the mascara/brow wand. It has held up well and I am prone to abusing my brushes. *cringes* Even the natural hair ones.
The only black handled one I own is the Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose No. 4. Seriously soft, and it works with any product I have dipped it into.
I also own the Into the Woods collection, now called "Straight From …

(Cold pressed, expeller pressed, chemical process, steam distillation etc.)
2) Your skin type, including any allergies or sensitivities.

Pressed Powders - NYX Professional Makeup - Primal Colors - PC07 Hot Red

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/01/2014

Color comes off as pink, not red. Very disappointed as red is hard to come by for the eyes and this looked like it would be the end of my search.
No, none of the primal colors are for use in the eye area. It isn't Ulta or any other retailers fault. Retailers set up the makeup displays according to the brand's instructions. I have said it since the Primal colors came out that it is …

Gels/ Soaps - Shea Moisture - Organic African Black Soap

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/15/2014

I have tried Nubian Heritage and Shea Moisture and I prefer Shea Moisture's Black Soap. Bigger bar, soothing scent that is boyfriend friendly (he will actually use it) and I can leave it on my face as a mask and it is fine for eye makeup removal.
