Mascara - essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

I love the way this looks on my lashes. It is very black and thickening on me. However, it smudges like crazy, to the point I cannot wear it without tubing mascara over it. I have long lashes, so it smudges where my top lashes hit my brow bone. I haven’t even attempted on bottom lashes! If you have shorter lashes, it might work better with less smudging.

I just cannot get past the smell of this stuff to even know if it is moisturizing or not. I think it is supposed to be rose, but it is just sickening to me (and I love rose scents). I’ve smelled other ones at Ulta, so it isn’t just my bottle. I’m in the minority and maybe I’m smelling it differently than others. In any case, I’d smell in store before buying. I’ll stick with the Alpha foot cream - …Read more

I had been drooling over this palette since it was released but couldn't justify the purchase because I already have plenty of colorful shadows and only wear them from time to time. Well, it is currently on the Tarte site for $26 with an additional 25% off, so I finally bought it. Wow, I love this so much and am so glad I broke down and got it. My other colorful shadows don't have great …Read more

I didn't need another neutral matte palette, but I was lucky enough to score this on the Tarte website for 50% off with another 25% off - so it was around $20. I absolutely love it! The colors apply beautifully and I can wear every color. And the scent is to die for.

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

3.0

Aug/04/2017

Honestly, this mascara is fine, but I don't get the hype at all. I got the waterproof version and it coated my eyelashes fine, held the curl, and only smudged a little bit on my undereyes. In comparison to Too Faced BTS, it doesn't seem like a dupe at all to me. I've only used the regular BTS (not waterproof), and I don't think Lash Paradise gives me nearly as much volume or …Read more

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Total Control Drop Foundation

Jun/06/2017

Like a previous reviewer, I am usually the lightest shade of most foundations, but the second-to-lightest shade was actually a perfect match for me. I'm mid-40s and have pretty good skin - few if any blemishes, normal (not oily or dry), and some redness. I prefer a light coverage. This was absolutely perfect upon first application. It had a natural finish and evened my skin tone …Read more

Palettes - Stila - Trust in Love Palette Holiday 2015

Dec/12/2015

I was able to get this on sale for $28. I am quite pleased with the palette. The Stila In the Light palette has been my favorite palette for years (I also own Lorac pro, It Cosmetics Celebration, thebalm balm Jovi, and some Smashbox trios).

What I love about this over the ITL palette are the pops of color with the blue and purple. I always thought ITL would be perfect with those …

Lipstick - Bite Beauty - Luminous Creme Lipstick - Apricot

Nov/08/2015

Update: I feel I need to update my review even though I know this has just been discontinued. I have noticed that while this feels nice while wearing, the day after I wear it my lips are dry and peeling. I cannot wear it at all anymore. And like another reviewer said, it has terrible staying power. I'm actually ok with that if the product nourishes my lips, but this dries them out AND does …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Hemp Hand Protector

Feb/22/2015

It would be moisturizing if I didn't have to throw it in the trash. Oh My God. This stuff smells so disgusting. And the small lasts as long as the lotion. I tried to give it to my husband who has very dry hands hoping the more masculine smell wouldn't bug him so much-I didn't mention the smell to him. After the first wear, he said to throw it away because the smell was just too …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - dusk

Feb/18/2015

This is a nice little duo! I am fair and cool toned, but with red hair/green eyes. The taupe shade in this duo pulls quite purple on me and makes my eyes look even greener. Full out purple shadows make me look a little bruised or tired, so this purpley taupe does what I want from a purple shadow but without the bruised look. I am the lone dissenter, and I like the balance of the two colors. I use …Read more
