Hair Treatments - Redken - Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/26/2014

ULTA was giving out samples of this, so I took one home, tried it, and immediately bought the full size! It does work to lessen the drying time of your hair when blowdrying. That being said, it does have alcohol in it low on the ingredients list, so it could also dry out your hair if used too often. I only use this when I'm in a hurry..."Oh crap, I only have 45 minutes to get ready, and …Read more

Treatments (Face) - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Professional Shine Eraser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/12/2014

Really thin and unabsorbant. I just feel like I am pressing a thin piece of paper on my skin, not an absorbant sheet. I have to use about 7 of these to do my whole face, with other brands (such as the Clean and Clear blotting sheets which I can never find anymore!) I only have to use two or three. I don't feel that these absorb all of the oil and sweat that a blotting sheet should. It does …Read more

Liquid - RIMMEL - MATCH PERFECTION Light Perfecting Radiance Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2014

This is my go-to foundation for more casual days. I like to use full coverage foundations (usually Kat Von D Lock It or Colorstay) most days but for weekends when I'm just going out for a few hours but want to look decent, this is what I grab. It's a medium to full coverage on me, on the lighter side of full coverage. I usually don't need a concealer with this, even if I'm …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Veluxe Pearl - Coppering

5.0

VERY pigmented and applies on the eyelid the way it looks in the pan when used over a primer. The formula is great, smooth, not patchy. I am NC 20, warm toned skin and light brown hair. Coppering brings out my green eyes and is flattering when used sparingly.

Lip Gloss - Maybelline New York - Shiny-Licious - ALL colors

I actually really like these! I have about ten that I've grabbed at Dollar Tree. They're all sheer, no brainer and no mirror needed shades with different scents to match the name. The Cola Float one is delicious and leaves a slight bronze tint on the lips. The clear Peppermint one is tingly and slightly plumps lips. The fruity ones I've tried are all yummy and true to their name …Read more

Lipstick - wet n wild - MegaLast Lip Color - Bare it All

Nov/17/2012

This matte nude lippie has strong peach and brown undertones. It wasn't flattering on my light, warm toned (NC20) skin though. It was very peachy and garish. The formula is pretty dry and not smooth, it tugged on my lips as I applied it. It also accentuated dryness on my lips, even though I exfoliated and put a balm on first.
I usually love Wet N Wild but this just didn't live up …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish by Kate Moss - 15

Nov/17/2012

Super gorgeous and unique color! It's a ... purple-ish grey? Sounds funky (and it is!) but it's wearable. For daytime, you could swipe it on once and top with a lighter gloss. It's pretty dark on the lips if you swipe it a few times, and chock full of shimmer particles. As someone said below, very rock&roll. Love the Rimmel scent and the classy black packaging. This is a STEAL …Read more

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Lip Perfection in Precious

4.0

Nov/17/2012

This looked like a nice medium rosy-pink with shimmer in the tube, but when I put it on, it darkened to a bright fuchsia! I was a bit disappointed about that, but otherwise there were no problems. The packaging and the scent are nice. The formula is good; it doesn't feather, it lasts a while, and when it does fade, it leaves a nice berry stain on your lips.
Just beware, it's a …
