Brows - CHANTECAILLE - waterproof brow definer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2018

This one of those slanted brow pencils manufactured in South Korea. It's a brilliant design since the slant allows for the easiest following possible along naturally arched brows. The formula is vegan which is primarily why I chose this pencil over cheaper options. The real draw here is that the formula WILL stay on for hours and won't look too harsh and instagram-y. It's …Read more

Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Biotin (All brands)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/28/2018

I'm currently on oral chemotherapy and the side effects include my nails doing something that they've never done before: split right in the middle. So I started taking 500 mg of biotin and within a week my nails were strong and flexible. I honestly expected to start seeing some results in 6 to 8 weeks at the least. So yes, biotin works. However please heed the warnings from people …Read more

Foundations - Scott Barnes - Multi-Media Liquid Makeup

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2018

This is basically the Scott Barnes version of Countess Isserlyn Liquid Makeup. It has the stir stick and even the basic shape of the bottle is almost identical. While the Countess keeps fresh for hours, it doesn't quite have the glow that Multimedia does. It's not surprising since Barnes created the J-Lo glow back in the day. Countess also has much stronger coverage from the …Read more

Foundations - Giorgio Armani - Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2018

Oil-based foundations were practically on the verge of extinction. There was the forgotten legend, Countess Isserlyn Liquid Makeup and that was pretty much it. Then Multimedia Makeup came on the scene. Then this foundation. Oil in makeup is hot now. Oil-based foundations tend to be runnier than water and silicone and require mixing prior to use. This is considered to be sheer but it's …Read more

Lipstick - Manic Panic - Lethal Lipstick - All Colors

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2018

These are some of the best alternative lipsticks that I've found. I have and love Daughter of Darkness, Black Rose, and Glamourrose. They are all consistently creamy with a nice sheen and decent pigmentation. No Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers issues here, they perform like a quality lipstick. The brand has real street cred, it's been around since the heydey of the punk era. This …Read more

Masks - Deciem - The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/03/2018

I remember about ten years ago when at home peels were all the rage. They mostly came in expensive kits and contained about as much free acid as any over the counter serum. That is if you bought them from Sephora. Etailers were happy to sell you kits that looked outright dangerous. I ignored them because I already used a daily BHA product. Then I got older and decided a weekly peel would …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Trader Joe's - A Midsummer Night's Cream Extra Dry Formula

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2017

You know that feeling when you've found a product that works you're afraid to try something else? That's how I feel about a Midsummer Night's Cream. It's vegan, fairly affordable, and has such a pleasant texture. Rich but not too rich. Also, there's that little fact that it actually moisturizes well. I buy at least a couple of bottles at a time to make sure …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Pretty Serious Cosmetics - Eye of Copernicus

Apr/24/2017

Are you a Gen Xer who missed out on Chanel's Ciel de Nuit and never really got over it? Me too. Are you an Essie fan who can't abide the "revival" edition of their famous Starry, Starry Night? Then this polish is for you as well. The only other company who offers a decent version of those night sky polishes from the mid 90's is Colors By Llarowe. Both are great but …Read more

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Vice Lipstick

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/06/2016

This line has been criticized for being too big and ......I don't care. I like that there are five different finishes and so many colors. Some of them are actually returning old favorites like Gash and Mrs. Mia Wallace. The Revolution line didn't really have any unconventional shades (what UD was originally known for) but Vice thankfully fills in with Perversion. In the last few …Read more

Highlighters - NYX Professional Makeup - Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator - Sunbeam

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/01/2016

I personally think that this highlighter is beautiful. Love the icy opalescent pink color. Love the hints of glitter actually. Love how it stays on. The key is to apply with a light hand and you won't be looking like you're ready for a rave. It's actually funny to that people complain about the glitter since I can think of at least two highlighters that have stronger glitter: …Read more
