Hair Color - SEBASTIAN - Cellophanes Color Revitalizer "Espresso Brown"

Dec/15/2016

"Hair board" recommended this amazing tinted glaze to me when I inquired about any cool or neutral dark brown options ( I would say this is neutral-natural in undertone). I found it on Amazon for roughly $16-18 dollars, which, for just over 10 fl. oz. on my shoulder-length hair, works out to under $2 an application.

Basically, you slap on some gloves, apply it to damp & …

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - AM SPF 30

Dec/15/2016

I adored this for some time, but, after a while, realized my skin, although not quite becoming more acneic, was most definitely getting more severely congested (especially in the nasal folds, for one). So, it wasn't truly the "holy grail" I imagined it to was for a time, but it also wasn't a complete frickin' disaster either.

I liked that it was mild and …

Loose Powders - NYX Professional Makeup - HD Studio Finishing Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2016

I am somewhat pale (NW15) and combination-dry; this loose, 100% silica powder looks both dry and chalky on me even when applied super-sparingly with a stippling brush. I am hesitant to suggest it as a solo finishing powder unless you are into a matte look, very pale, and have an oilier skin type. I feel like that is a lot of parameters, so I am giving this one a kind of sorry 3/5 rating.

Concealers - Ben Nye - MediaPRO HD Coverette "CC-1 Ultra Fair"

This color worked great on me over the summer after getting a bit too much sun; I would say this color is neutral-warm and fair-light (about an NC20 in MAC). Unfortunately, the formula was a complete failure on my combo-dry skin (way too drying!), yet I still have a lot of praises to sing of it:
-flexible, build-able coverage: semi-sheer to moderate-full
-long-wearing when set with a …

Eye Shadow - Jordana Cosmetics - Color Effects Total Blackout

5.0

Jul/17/2016

An amazing quality matte black eye shadow (pressed) for a super-reasonable price. The pigmentation is rich, the texture is fine and easy to blend, and it stayed put all day over my eye shadow primer (Too Faced Shadow Insurance). I would definitely repurchase this and am interested in more

Eyeliner - Jordana Cosmetics - 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Eternal White

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/17/2016

Eternal White is a winter white "chubby" shadow stick with no shimmer. It boasts impressive pigment, is a cinch to blend, and really does stay all day.

I have only had luck with Bobbi Brown cream shadows staying in the past, and, needless to say, this comes at a far lower price point. I like using it under colored pressed shadows to bring out the vividness. I would highly …

Lipstick - Jordana Cosmetics - Rio-Matte

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2016

The swatch Jordana provides of this is way off--it's not at all cool pink, but a dirty mid-tone rose with soft, light bronze pearl to my eye. I almost always wear neutrals or cools, and this one is simply too "orange" for my pale, pink-ish complexion.

I consider the shade selection user error though, so, moving on...the packaging is, of course flimsy/cheap (the cap …

Eyeliner - Jordana Cosmetics - Color Envy Liquid Eyeliner-Wine Obsession

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2016

For a very low-end brand, Jordana usually delivers rich pigmentation. Wine Obsession is a serious exception. I would describe the color as a sheer, cool mauve with sparse silvery micro-glitter (nothing like the deep, opaque wine I expected). It's so pathetic that I am not even going to report on longevity or any other factors...

Lips - wet n wild - Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Color in #126Rico Mauve

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2016

I have mixed feelings on this: as a colored gloss stick or balm, I very much like it. It's a good natural color for me, not far off my moderately pigmented lips (muted cool pink-mauve). It has good pigmentation and no discernable shimmer.

The downside: it doesn't show up much as a stain on me, leaving a barely noticeable (but attractive) straight pink wash. …

Eyeliner - RIMMEL - ScandalEyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pot

3.0

Jul/09/2016

I picked this up on a whim as I am in search of some waterproof liners. In essence, this doesn't live up to the billing. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer and within just a few hours, my "wings" had faded. The color was rich & easy to apply, but it's certainly not 24 hour or waterproof. Next!
