Mascara - Hourglass Cosmetics - Film Noir Lash Lacquer

4.0

Feb/09/2012

I picked this up impulsively after hearing so much about it on YouTube. I have long, full, dark brunette curled lashes already, so I was a bit skeptical. I only use this for going out at night for extra drama as it really is a dark, glossy black lacquer. For me, it works best over lengthening mascaras rather than volumizing mascaras. I also love this over false lashes for a really pumped up look …Read more

Mascara - Yves Saint Laurent - Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara

Feb/07/2012

I'm really surprised with the negative reviews on this! I had read them all before, so when I was able to get a sample as a 100 point perk at Sephora, I went for it so I could try it without shelling out $30. I'm so happy I decided to, because I love it! I'd just run out of my HG MUFE Smoky Lash, which became so dried out it was impossible to use (however, this was only after …Read more

Powder - Sheer Cover - Sheer Cover - Mineral Foundation

5.0

Dec/13/2011

When I looked this up, I was startled by the bad rating. However, reading through the almost 300 reviews, I see that about 98% of them are pretty much reviews of the company/mailing program/etc and not the actual product. People who didn't read the fine print and come here to complain about it really don't help the people who are just looking for honest reviews of the product itself …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2011

This mascara is just okay for me. It does darken and accentuate my already long, full, curled lashes, but it definitely doesn't make them look false. It also has a tendency to clump on me. I actually use this on days I want a more natural look. However I do like the curved brush and think it's easy to work with. It's not HG for me, but it is okay in a pinch. I probably won't …Read more

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15

Nov/04/2011

I adore this lip balm! It is amazing and leaves my lips so pillowy soft. I love the Rose color as well, since it gives my lips a nice healthy glow without being too red or overbearing. The taste is still lemony like the original version, but just with a nice hint of color. It lasts for ages on my lips too, which is another benefit. My other love about this balm is that the packaging is a …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Desire

5.0

Nov/03/2011

I absolutely adore Desire blush. At first I was super hesitant to try it, but I took a very light hand and simply dabbed my brush in it two or three times, tapped off the excess, applied, and wow! It gave me the most innocent glow ever! It looks like you're lit from within. I also think it looks more like a real "glow," moreso than Orgasm! Truly an amazing color. It takes so little …Read more

Bronzers - NARS Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder - Casino

Nov/02/2011

I was a little afraid of this bronzer at first, since I'm always terrified to look dirty or orange-fake. I took this very lightly with my contour brush, and wow, I've fallen in love! It is the perfect contour for me, and also adds a nice, natural glow to my face! I use it very lightly and build to avoid looking dirty due to packing it on too heavy. I personally don't detect much …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Sin

Nov/02/2011

I must admit, I was really hesitant to try Sin (in fact I was really hesitant to try most of the Danmari palette!). I am NC20-25 and was afraid it'd be too purple or bruised-looking on my skin. However, I dabbed - not swiped - my brush into the pan and applied, and wow, was I shocked! Sin is a gorgeous mauve-y color when applied to my cheeks, and looks very similar to my HG blush, MAC's …Read more

Skincare - Face - Stridex - Triple Action Pads, Alcohol Free

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/01/2011

This product is AMAZING! I use it twice a day on areas where I'm prone to breaking out. It helps stop new blemishes while healing what's already broken out. I notice that on my skin at least it helps to fade redness as well. My skin cleared up noticeably within the first few days of using these pads. It also has not dried my skin out, although I have normal/oily skin and make sure to …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal Brown

4.0

Aug/30/2011

This is the absolute only version of BADgal I have ever liked and had success with. It came in my Legally Bronze kit, so even though I wasn't too pumped about it, I figured I was looking for a brown mascara and since it was basically free it wouldn't hurt to try. Well, what a difference from all my other experiences with BADgal!! I used this on my super long, full, black lower lashes …Read more
