Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Russian Red

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2019

Oh, Russian Red, where do we begin?
Russian Red is a cult classic among MAC's endless array of lipsticks and it's not hard to imagine why. I would describe the color of Russian Red as being a cooler tone, medium-to-dark, rich red shade. I'll be totally honest- I didn't think I would like this color. MAC's Ruby Woo is my ultimate go-to and by comparison, since …

Highlighters - REVLON - Photoready Skinlights in Bare Light

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2015

I truly loved this product. It's a great, very subtle highlighter that contains minimal glitter and provides the skin with a really soft glow. The 'Barelight' color is quite subtle because the shade is a little darker than most highlighters. It doesn't have much impact when used on the tops of the cheeks or the forehead for me, simply because the shade is quite close to my …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Eco Styler Moroccan Argan Oil Styling Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2014

When I discovered the massive tubs of Eco Styler at my local beauty supply for about 5 dollars, I nearly gasped aloud, "Hallelujah!"
Eco Styler has been my go-to styling product for the past few months. Not longer after I wiped out a huge tub of the clear Eco Styler Crystal variety I came to settle on the Moroccan Argan Oil version. One thing that I genuinely love about this gel is …

Hair - Shea Moisture - Organic African Black Soap Purification Masque

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/05/2014

As much as I truly love Shea Moisture and hate to bring down the ratings on this product, I just have to be honest. Their African Black Soap Purification Masque really didn't do much of anything for me at all. I wanted so bad to love it as much as everyone else seems to!
While I can admit that it DID make my scalp feel just the slightest bit cleaner and less itchy after using it, I …

Brows - Lioele - Artist Auto Eyebrow Pencil in #3 Gray Black

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2014

Judging by the reviews already posted, I guess it's safe to say that finding appropriately colored eyebrow pencils for those of us with black hair is A STRUGGLE. Many browns appear too red, taupes too sandy, and well, black just too darn stark looking for some of us. Grey products have most certainly been my salvation ever since I discovered that they exsisted at all but just because some …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Retro Matte Lipstick - Ruby Woo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2014

I guess it’s safe to say that I’m no longer a fraud. For years and years I had the audacity to think of myself as somewhat of a red lipstick connesiour despite never having tried the mother of all reds. That’s right- Ruby Woo. Having been lured in with alleged dupes or lead astray by tight budgets, it’s taken a long time but I have finally been able to try it. Alas, I have truly been initiated …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails Hardener - Clear

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/26/2013

Honestly, I can't help but feel like lately I've done nothing but bitch here on MUA about one crappy product or another, and unfortunately the string of duds does not stop with this product.
I wanna start out by saying that my nails are pretty good naturally. They grow long and relatively strong in a timely manner but I often like to use hardeners as an extra barrier of protection …

Conditioner - Unlisted Brand - AS I AM Coconut CoWash Cleansing Conditioner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2013

Ugh, ugh, ugh. I still cringe whenever I think about how this product made my hair feel even though I haven't had it in my possession for quite some time now. I wound up giving my Coconut CoWash away because it left my hair feeling awful. It was horribly dry after using this and nearly impossible to detangle, even with my heaviest of conditioners. I nearly panicked in the shower feeling my …Read more

Eyeliner - L.A. COLORS - Liquid Eyeliner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/16/2013

I too picked this up at Dollar Tree. I didn't expect too much of it, thinking that surely if it's only a buck then there must be some sort of reason why. I, like many other people reviewing here, turned out to be both glad and sad that it was so cheap. Glad obviously because it wasn't worth more than the dollar I paid for it and sad because I'd hoped it'd be a little …Read more

Eye Shadow - Physicians Formula - Matte Collection Quad Eye Shadow - Canyon Classic

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2013

Though I've only had this quad a few days, I'm reviewing it now because ultimately I plan on returning it as soon as I can.
After reading that, I suppose it might be a bit redundant to imply or even out right state that I am disappointed but...folks, I'm really disappointed in Canyon Classics. This quad had been on my list for a few months now but I had been hesitant about …
