Polishes - OPI - Koala Bear-y

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2014

This is probably one of my favorite polishes (and I own many). This color is a beautiful pink/berry shade, which is fun but not to bright. I can see it being used in all seasons. The formula is amazing, thin but opaque (one-coat wonder) and dries to a glossy finish. I can't say enough good things about this polish. One of OPI's best.

Polishes - China Glaze - Pool Party

Jun/20/2014

When you look up pictures of Pool Party, you'll probably find photos of really bright pink (maybe coral-pink) nails. I found that it was, in fact, really bright, but on my nails it's more of a reddish orange. I still like it, but it was a little disappointing. This is a great color for summer, and it's brightness is no joke. I have gotten asked several times what color I have on my …Read more

Eyeliner - wet n wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2014

This product is like the little eyeliner that could. I bought it on a whim during a BOGO sale, and it surprised me in how well it worked. I'm in the process of finding the best drugstore cream/gel liner, and this is one of the front runners. This will last me all day (~16 hrs), with minimal smudging by the end. It's really pigmented, so if you're looking for a genuine dark black, I …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Fusion water resistant

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/06/2012

I was really hoping that this would be my go-to mascara for summer when I bought it. There's a lot of hype with the Lash Blast series, but I was disappointed with LB Volume because of its inability to hold a curl. I bought this one figuring, it's water resistant, so it should be able to hold a curl, right? Wrong! Maybe this is the difference between "water resistant" and …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

3.0

Aug/06/2012

I was so excited to try this mascara, but I was disappointed. The volume is alright, not too exciting without a couple of coats. It doesn't hold a curl at all though, especially if you try to build up the volume with several coats. I will say that I like the brush though, it doesn't allow for a lot of clumping and separates pretty well. I was expecting epicness from all the hype, but …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Advanced Hard as Nails Strengthening Topcoat

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/11/2012

Edit:
Upon using several bottles, my opinion has changed a little. I still think it's a great top coat if you're on a budget. However, this topcoat gets goopy pretty quickly. At first I thought I had a bad bottle, but this happened with every bottle I had after a few months. It becomes hard to work with and bubbly. I probably won't be repurchasing for a while, there's …

Polishes - FingerPaints - Flashy

5.0

Jan/29/2012

I have to admit, I love FingerPaints' flakies. This is the second one I've purchased, the first being Twisted. Flashy is an orange/green (mostly orange) flakie that goes with many colors. You can use it to ignite a black or, I put it over a creme forest green, together they make my school colors. Definitely recommend.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara

Jan/14/2012

Based on its reviews on MUA, I thought I would LOVE this mascara, but I feel underwhelmed. I will admit that it does leave your lashes feeling soft, but it lacks in the "full" department. This mascara is great is your want a very natural look, like if you just want to darken your lashes. However, it took me around 3 coats to get some noticeable volume. Also, the wand is huge, so …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2012

Edit: As the formula gets drier with use, the mascara flakes a lot more. As someone who wears contacts and cannot run the risk of irritating my eyes with flakes, I find this to be disappointing. Also, you get "crunchy" lashes.

This is one of the best mascaras I've tried for the price ($5, Target). I have long lashes, so I bought this for the volume. The wand is very …

Hair Color - Clairol - Natural Instincts Hair Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2012

I actually like this product, probably because I chucked the "refresher" packet. Thank you MUA for that. :) I have naturally dark hair, so dying it really only gives it a tint of color, which was alright with me. But with that in mind, I chose Egyptian Plum/Burgundy Brown because I wanted something unique...but semi-permanent as well, in case it didn't turn out so …Read more
