Liquid - CHANEL - Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth Effect Makeup SPF15

Sep/26/2018

I put off trying this foundation for a long time because of the fragrance. I don't like the heavy old lady smell of most Chanel products although this foundation has less scent than others by Chanel. I finally broke down and gave it a try and it has replaced my beloved UD Naked Skin foundation. I usually use 3.25 in UD Naked Skin so I bought the Lumiere Velvet in 22 which matches my light …Read more

Palettes - Kat Von D - Alchemist Holographic Palette

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/01/2017

First off let me say I think love Kat Von D shadows, but this one does not impress me. As a layering and highlight palette it performs ok but not in any way special. These shades do not do anything that duochrome highlighters can't do and you get a lot more product for the money. Even the spring 2017 Wet n Wild highlighter that is lavender/pink gives the same effect as two of the shades in …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Electric Pressed Pigment Palette

Apr/01/2017

I put off buying this palette for a very long time because as an over 50 person, I felt that it would not work with older eye lids. But when it was on sale for $24, I couldn't resist. I love to do a basic eye with neutral matte shades and then layer bright colors or shimmery shades on the lid and on the lower lash line. This palette is wonderful, each shade has intense pigment and blends …Read more

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

Dec/09/2016

After years of using Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation I have found a new holy grail. The Naked Skin was sliding off my face and rubbing off onto my phone and coat collar now that I am in the hot flash years even with setting spray. I tried the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation and it oxidized like crazy. I do have a strong tendency to have makeup oxidize on me for some reason.

I went …

Conditioner - DevaCurl - One Condition Delight Weightless Waves Conditioner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2016

I have to say I was quite surprised by this conditioner. Devacurl conditioners tend to not work well on my frizzy 2c/3a wavy hair. The regular one is not moisturizing enough and the Decadence one weighs my medium textured hair down.

This Delight conditioner detangles and give a nice light moisture to my hair for daily use. It help with my frizz without being weighing my hair down. I …

Shampoo - DevaCurl - Low-Poo DELIGHT

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2016

To start off I have 2c/3a wavy hair that has highlights and tends to frizz very easily. I have always fought to get my waves to look like curls instead of wavy frizz. I have used other version of Devacurl's low poo and no poo (cannot use any of those) and this is the first one I truly love. Usually I use SheaMoisture Moisture Retention shampoo. But after using two bottle in a row of that I …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner

5.0

Aug/08/2016

I previously reviewed the UD 24/7 liquid in Pervesion and Demolition and they wore totally different.

The UD Razor Sharp Liquid is great. No problem with different pigmentation like with the 24/7 Liquid and the wear time on both Perversion and Demolition is very longwearing. It is not waterproof but still holds up to my oily lids and the high humidity in summer. My favorite liquid …

Eyeliner - ULTA - Gel Eye Liner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/18/2016

I have used every brand of gel liner from high end to drug store and this one is as good as any high end. The consistency is similar to MAC Fluidline a creamy almost mousse like texture. T dry down time is a little longer than MAC so you do need to let this really set a minute or it may smudge. This has good pigmentation and has a nice smooth application. The wear time is great as is most gel …Read more

Liquid - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/09/2016

This is one of my favorite foundations. I like medium coverage but don't like a heavy makeup feel. This delivers wonderfully. I can build it up to cover redness and blemishes so I do not need a separate concealer. It never settles into lines or emphasizes pores. I do set this with powder except in the driest part of winter. In summer I need to touch up with powder in the t-zone at about the …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/09/2016

I almost always use waterproof mascara because my lashes refuse to hold a curl. The exception is Too Faced Better Than Sex regular mascara. So when I saw there is a waterproof version I was expecting great results. Sadly this is a very lackluster mascara. It gives almost no volume and very little length. I realize the formula for waterproof mascara is generally thin but usually there is …Read more
