I was looking for a dupe for Styled in Sepia by Mac because of course I waited too long to buy it and it's no longer available smh. So I looked up some reviews and a lot of people said that this is close. I'm not exactly sure about that but it looks really close IMHO. Anyway, it's not as matte as I'd like it to be. But it's a nice cool brownish nude. It goes on a little …Read more

Makeup Brushes - SHANY - Professional Brush Set 32 count

Jan/10/2015

So I got these on Amazon for about $12. You really couldn't go wrong for that price. I was looking for a decent sized fan brush and this kit definitely has that. Let me start off by saying these aren't Sigma or Mac brushes lol. But for the price they're really pretty good. The ones that I've used so far didn't shed TOO much. I had some shedding while washing but it …Read more

Hair Color - Manic Panic - Temporary in Vampire Red

May/27/2014

This review is on the original Manic Panic Vampire Red in the jar, not the Amplified version. I Picked up 2 of these semipermanent dyes in Vampire Red from Sally's. I recently bleached the very front of my hair to try and go purple but I was too chicken to let it lift all the way so I got purple roots and plum-ish ends. Do not want. I originally used ColorFix from Sally's as well to …Read more

One of my favorite top coats except....

Maybe it's just me and probably because I sleep on my hands (?) but I wear this as a top coat to my Nutra Nail Bullet-Proof polish and even though it'll seem dry before I fall asleep, I wake up with the sheet or pillow pattern on my nails :-(

Now, I am not taking off a lippy because clearly that's my fault lol. This …

Always brittle nails...no matter what. I can't blame years of acrylics either because I started to get my nails done because of them being brittle. About 3+ years ago I finally gave up on using acrylics due to the nature of my job and them being prohibited.

I started using gel polishes and doing them myself. I love them but honestly sometimes I just don't feel like going …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Nexcare Acne Absorbing Cover

Apr/13/2013

I'm not lucky enough to be able to find these actual patches but what I do here in the US is buy normal hydrocolloid bandages and cut them down to size. I've only used them on acne that I've already popped (BAD habit I know *sad face here*) but they DEFINITELY shorten healing time and the scars are wayyyy less visible! A good tip for those of us that can't find these patches …Read more

So far I'm loving this! In the bottle it looks like it may be heavy or oily but once it's in your hand and on your skin it almost feels like a gel. I only use 1 1/2 pumps and that's enough for my entire face and neck. It absorbs into the skin quickly and so far I can see the improvement in my skin texture. I'm sold on this...I haven had any irritation or breakouts so I'll …Read more

Lip Liners - Too Faced - Borderline - Anti Feathering Lip Pencil, Clear

4.0

Mar/16/2013

The only reason I won't repurchase is the price and the fact that other products can and do the same thing for less $. But this does work well I can't lie. Bought it to keep my red lips in place and it certainly does that. It creates a wax barrier around the lips and stops any feathering and bleeding.

Once I run out, try another product and I see if there is or isn't a …

Bought this for my 30th bday, I was doing the whole pin-up girl look and needed the perfect red shade. For me, THIS was it! It's matte but not dry at all! It went on smoothe but not dry. It's really long lasting, that's always a plus! I did use a red lipstick over it but that was extra. This would've been beautiful without it. I would definitely buy this in other shades. Three …Read more

Went into Sephora for skin care products and decided to try out a BB Cream. I had the associate pick out 2 that she thought were the best and try them on one side of my face. They both looked about the same but the texture knocked me out! It literally felt like velvet going on! It absorbed well and the fact that it has a sunscreen and primer was awesome! While its not a full coverage foundation …Read more
