Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

Nov/28/2011

I've tried to like this. I've bought it on several occasions, wowed by the reviews here, hoping it would clear up some mild body acne and KP. But it's just too abrasive for me. It makes my legs itchy and my back and shoulders break out, so I switched back to a shower poof. I do have sensitive skin, for the record.

Lips - Burt's Bees - Rose Tinted Lip Balm

Nov/04/2011

I was looking for a red or rosy balm that would add some moisture in the winter. On me, this hardly shows up, even if I pack it on, which is odd because it looks so red in the tube. The packaging led me to believe it was a much bigger balm than it is (it's chapstick sized).

It feels pretty moisturizing on, and has some kind of a fruity scent (I want to say cherry?) but I feel …

Hair Color - Unlisted Brand - Avigal Henna

Nov/03/2011

I'd never tried to make henna before, and working from the instructions (which are buried in the henna container and you have to dig around for) I kind of goofed, so here's some thoughts after I've read other peoples' methods for this henna:

1) Leave it on for longer than the recommended time. I used champagne (blonde) and I have light brown hair, and I really …

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst - Soft Rose [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/30/2011

This is a "my lips but better" for me - probably a shade or two darker than my natural lip color, but still manages to look very natural. It's become one of my favorite lip colors, especially for fall and winter. Not as dramatic as a red, but still more interesting than a pink or nude. $9 is kind of steep for a drugstore lipstick, and lasting power is so-so; it doesn't …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Charcoal Brown

Oct/30/2011

I bought this because a girl on youtube uses this on her brows, and our hair color is nigh identical (light brown/dark blonde hair, medium brown brows). It does do very well for that and I've been favoring it over my Anastasia brow powder duo. Otherwise, this is great for a defined crease if you want a matte look (I prefer matte for professional settings). You could use this as a brown …Read more

**NOTE: DON'T put this on before spf moisturizer or sunscreen in the morning because it doesn't offer sun protection! Sunscreen should be the first thing on your face after washing.

I've been looking more and more into anti-oxidant type serums because derms and such seem to suggest that as prevention when you're in your twenties - this one caught my eye because …

Brows - Unlisted Brand - eyebrowz brow stencils

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2011

I was afraid these would be grossly too big like the Anastasia stencils, but they actually match up well to a normal person's brow (the length is listed by each stencil so do measure if your brows are short). Now, like everyone has said, you MUST take your own brow into account when buying, as opposed to what you WANT your brow to look like. I've had to buy two sets of four because I …Read more

Eyes - Unlisted Brand - Eyebrowz white eye pencil

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2011

I got the eye pencil you have to sharpen, and it does about the same as the self-advancing one. Like everyone says, it's too soft to do what you're trying to do. Your only option is to try to fill the whole brow in white, but I opted to fill it in with brow powder (darkly) with an angle brush and then just tweeze outside the color. I might try to get a harder white eyeliner at a …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation

Sep/28/2011

Update: This broke me out in a really ugly way, so I'm knocking some lippies from the review. Acne-prone individuals, you've been warned!

I got this because I have neutral undertones and the somewhat hokey-sounding sales pitch for this product is that it matches to your skin's undertones, so I gave it a shot.

I'm somewhere between NW/C 20-25, and I went …

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Finish Concealer

Sep/25/2011

I got this in NW25, which is actually quite a good match for me. I bought it for undereye concealing, and I was really frustrated with the results (had trouble picking it up on a brush, it wouldn't blend, when I blended it I lost the coverage) until I tried using my fingers. I think because it's so thick and creamy it needs warmed up a bit before it'll do well. For me it works …Read more
