Hair Color - Amphigory - Special Effects in Devilish

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/01/2011

This is my HG red. It may be too bright/loud/obnoxious for some but that's exactly how I like my hair color ;) I bleached the top layers of my hair back in February and dyed with SFX Devilish immediately afterward. Even on the underlayers of my hair, which were left their natural dark brown, you could pick up that red tinge - but on the bleached parts, holy cow. Imagine the brightest, most …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil - Slate

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2011

There are no words for how happy I am to have come across this product. I'm not very big into makeup - I usually only wear liner, concealer and powder - but since finding these jumbo pencils, my curiosity has been piqued. The Slate color isn't too blue, nor is it a neutral gray... it suits cool-toned skin very nicely. It stays put and takes a few hours before it'll start fading. I …Read more

Skincare - Face - Dickinson's Brands - Dickinson's Witch Hazel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2011

This stuff is lovely. I don't much care for the smell, but it certainly doesn't linger; you'll only smell it for a few seconds as you're working it into your skin - it disappears relatively quickly. I use this as a toner and I have zero complaints. Gives my skin a great, clean feeling, and is gentle enough to use multiple times a day. For someone like me, who has very …Read more

Toners - Olay - Refreshing Toner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2011

This is your average, run-of-the-mill toner. It's not special in any way. But that's not necessarily a bad thing! It works as advertised. I would have to agree with other reviewers that using it too often will definitely dry out your skin, but since I'm very oily, I don't have much of a problem with that. The smell can be a little annoying if you don't like scented face …Read more

Eyeliner - MILANI - Liquif'eye Metallic eye liner pencil -black

Sep/01/2010

I heard that these were better than the Urban Decay 24/7 liners, and I HAD to try them - I'm cheap as hell and I absolutely hate to spend so much on the UD pencils. Luckily, these are a great alternative! However, they're certainly not perfect.

Like the UD liners, these glide on very, very smoothly, and you have a minute or two to smudge them (if that's your thing - it …

Lips - Fyrinnae - Lip Lustre in Ultra Phantom

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2010

Ultra Phantom is one of Fyrinnae's newer Lip Lustre colours. The site says this: "Sheer aqua sparkle (not plastic or metal glitter, but soft, non-gritty sparkle!) that turns to pink in different light or angles, and sometimes almost pale orange. Looks cool worn alone, stunning over black or dark purple lipstick, or perks up a plain pink. Dark chocolate peppermint …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Poshe - Super-Fast Drying Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2010

Poshe was the first quick-dry topcoat I ever bought, and thankfully it was a hit. I will never need to switch to another brand or try anything else out because this, in my experience, is perfect.

This tc has made all the difference for me. I used to paint my nails and then wait for 45 minutes to make sure I wouldn't smudge or dent them... and often times I ended up doing that …

Styling Products - Garnier - Fructis Style Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/19/2010

I was in dire need of a wave-enhancing spray, since my previous one was discontinued and I was about to head off for vacation when I noticed I'd run out. I must have spent half an hour staring at all the different bottles in the hair care aisle... and I kept coming back to this product. I figured, it's dirt cheap, so how do I know it works? Why would something that actually performs as …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - Professional Lacquer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2010

I'm putting this in caps in hopes that someone will give Zoya another chance after seeing this: THERE IS A SPECIFIC INGREDIENT IN CERTAIN TOPCOATS/BASECOATS THAT DOES NOT AGREE WITH ZOYA - SEARCH ALU'S BLOG POSTS FOR MORE INFORMATION. If you use a top/base coat that contains this ingredient, Zoya polish may not behave as intended for you. I can see where buying a special tc/bc to …Read more

Lip Gloss - Fyrinnae - Lip Lustre - Romantique

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2010

While I love the shimmery gold/pink of this color at a distance, up close it settles into all the cracks in my lips and makes them a lot more noticeable. The color would be fabulous if it was a little smoother but I likely won't be able to wear this on its own, as it emphasises every line and imperfection in your lip.
