Here's how I use these awesome polish strips: I put down a coat of Orly Bonder before applying and a top coat after. I love to use these as accent nails or tip with polish (try Kitty Kitty with a vampy red, or I Love Lacey with a black tip!). Also, I can use one set for a manicure and pedicure because I have small nails and cut them in half (or thirds for toes).

Eye Shadow - Estée Lauder - Pure Color Stay On Shadow Paint in Steel

This flakes off all over my face within a couple of minutes! The metallic, highly pigmented shade is gorgeous, but something in the formula must be off. I've tried using it both with and without primer and applying it in different ways, but it begins flaking horribly as soon as it dries.

I own this shadow as part of the 2013 Color Portfolio Palette. In the pan, it just looks nondescript. In fact, i didn't even try it until a couple of months after purchasing and using the palette every day! But a few days ago, i swiped it across my lid and my eyes became...mine, but better! My hazelish eyes become greener, clearer and bigger.

This shade is so difficult to …

I got a sample of this with my Clarisonic, tried it once and then put it on the shelf because it was just so strange. But then I ran out of my usual moisturizer and went ahead and finished my sample. I'm glad I did. After about six weeks of use, along with the PTR gel cleanser, my skin has evened out and I'm not having any breakouts or noticing any clogged pores. My skin is usually very …Read more

I noticed several weeks ago that the dry winter air was causing my beloved Estee Lauder Double Wear to look a bit dull and mask-like, not to mention my skin had paled a bit since purchasing my foundation. Instead of buying another expensive bottle of foundation, I decided to try this.

It's amazing! I have not used it as a primer. I mix half foundation and half of this product …

I wanted to love this mascara, and I did, for about a week. Then, I developed a chalazion that took nearly six months to clear up. I hadn't had one in ten years before this. This mascara is very difficult to completely remove, and I have to believe it's what caused the chalazion.

Nails - Unlisted Brand - Red Carpet Manicure System

You get what you pay for. I am a Shellac user, and found Red Carpet today at Ulta. I was pretty excited when I saw the $9.99 price tag and bought White Hot and Nervous With Anticipation to do a French manicure. This polish is terrible. I wiped the applicator several times against the neck of the bottle, but somehow, way too much polish remained. Once it was applied to my nails, it ran and dripped …Read more

This was my great-grandmother's favorite color. She applied it with a heavy hand and had a hot pink personality to match. Us kids would have to wipe it from our cheeks everytime she kissed us.

She passed away long before I began wearing lipstick. But a few years ago, I spotted this at Ulta and had to pick it up, if only for sentimental reasons. I was pleasantly surprised at the …

Lip Treatments - eos - Smooth Sphere Organic Lip Balm in Honeysuckle Honeydew

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/03/2012

About a week after I received this for Christmas, my eos sphere rolled off my bathroom shelf and into my toilet. I was faced with a decision (besides how to fish it out): should I purchase a new one, or can I live without it? The shape was cool and it smelled good, but something about the formula felt drying and didn't make me feel like I was moisturizing my lips. A few minutes after …Read more

My mom bought this and didn't like it, and passed it on to me. I think it's horrible, compared to the Too Faced primer I've always used. My shadow collects into this gross gunk in my crease pretty much immediately. Using this primer is worse than using no primer at all.
