Blush - Maybelline New York - Dream Bouncy Blush - Orchid Hush

1.0

Sep/10/2013

PROS
*Feels nice

CONS
*Terrible pigmentation. Can't even use it as a light highlight.
*I feel that the regular price around $6 is way too much for this since there is virtually no color, and I am very fair-skinned.
*Balls up really badly when trying to apply
*Wipes off foundation no matter what method used to apply

Primer/ Corrector - KORRES Natural Products - Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Face Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/10/2013

I originally bought this in a smaller sized duo (0.34 fl oz) with the pomegranate mattifying serum. Something else to preface reviews of this product is that it is not intended to fill in pores as some primers are, so that should not really be a negative for this product.

PROS
*Mattifies my super oily skin!
*Lightly scented, and I actually like it
*Packaging is a good …

I got this in the sample size.

PROS
*Nice black color
*Love the brush. Separates well.

PROS
*Pigmented
*Lasts a long time
*Sticky
*Because of the thick texture, it fills in the lip lines and make lips appear fuller
*Great nude …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - SOHO Beauty Sponge

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2013

The first time I purchased this, I loved it. However, since then, the company has changed the makeup sponge. I originally purchased the version which was a tear drop shape (like the Beauty Blender), and it was the closest dupe I have used (I have used the actual Beauty Blender sponge). Unfortunately, since then, the company has changed the sponge, which is now a marquis shape (like the …Read more

Treatments - OPI - Nail Envy - Sensitive & Peeling

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2013

So I bought this nail strengthener because I had heard great things about the OPI Nail Envy line, and I wanted to make sure that I bought the right formula for my type of nails. Although I didn't have the extremely negative experience that many others have had, I don't think this is amazing either. I will continue to try other nail strengtheners after I finish …Read more
