To start with, I generally don't care for red nail polish on me...it's just not a color I gravitate towards because I feel it's too "harsh" for my skintone. However, I saw Cherry on Top at Kohl's and decided to try it. It's part of the Summer 2018 Soda pop Shop collection.
It's gorgeous. It's a cool-toned bright red (I guess you'd call it a …

This hair gel (it's yellow...not the blue one which is more popular with curlies around here) works for me...I rarely have a bad hair day when I use it. My hair is very fine, color-treated, and I think it's 3a/b curl pattern.
I squeeze excess water out of my hair (after washing and conditioning...I always leave a little conditioner in and work it in), put a quarter sized blob in my …

Polishes - OPI - Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?

Beautiful bright yet dark blurple (bluish purple). It's pretty unique....most of my polishes are either definitely purple or dark blue, but this one is really in between. I love it during the spring and summer when I get tired of the typical "warm weather" colors. I gave it a 4 rating because it applies rather "patchy" on the first coat; two coats will even it out. …Read more

Such a pretty, bright polish. It's a warm-ish vibrant pink crelly (thinner than creme but thicker than jelly :) that needs 2-3 coats to be opaque. The formula is superb...it practically floats on to my nails.
Super shiny even without top coat.
Love this one!

This brow pencil in the shade taupe is perfect for me; it has no red or warmth to it..just a perfect taupe brown. It's creamy and goes on so easily.
I just use it to fill in some thinner spots in my brows...I'm not trying to create a perfectly shaped brow.
The point wears down so it's not as fine-tipped as it is when it's first opened, but I don't mind that …

I love this primer. I love the applicator; I apply a dab on each lid and blend it up to my brow and it "disappears." It's almost like I can't even tell I have it on...then I set it with just a bit of flesh toned powder eyeshadow.
My eyeshadow shows up very well, it doesn't crease and lasts all day. I have sensitive eyes and this doesn't irritate them at …

I bought this eyeliner in gray. I've only used it a few days and so far, I love it.
The color is a neutral dark gray, almost charcoal, but definitely not black. It applies smoothly without tugging or skipping.
It doesn't smudge or smear off and lasts all day until I remove it with Clinique TTDO liquid, and the Clinique removes it easily. I don't line my waterline so I …

Eyeliner - CLINIQUE - quickliner in slate

I keep trying other brands of eyeliner, and I don't know why. Clinique quickliners have everything I want in an eyeliner. I really wish they didn't discontinue the navy, but anyway. They glide on smoothly, have good color payoff, last all day without smudging, are easy to remove, and don't irritate my sensitive eyes (unlike the intense versions).
I decided to try the slate …

I love the color of this eyeliner; it's a perfect dark-ish plum. It glides on so smoothly and is so easy to apply. It also doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes.
However, it smudges way too quickly for me and doesn't last long. I won't be buying again.

Update: I decided to keep trying this liner because I love the color so much and it's so creamy and …

Overall I like this for a drugstore mascara. The formula is a bit dry and it applies smoothly without clumping. It does a decent job thickening my lashes, and it's okay for lengthening. I really like the brush, too.
It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes at all and I have no flaking with it, either.
I love the case; it looks classy.
