(NOTE: This is a review of the PRODUCT, not a review of the company. I purchase my LC items through third parties on eBay or Amazon using gift cards or PayPal.) I have this product in Oh No She Didn't, Stiletto, and Chinchilla. While none of them are everyday, casual-friendly colors, I've worn all of them multiple times now. This is probably the creamiest, goopiest lipstick I've …Read more

Palettes - Coastal Scents - Concealer Palette

Apr/11/2015

I use this palette frequently for contouring. I have the 15-color version, which includes a shimmer highlighter, a pastel green, a pastel purple, and 12 colors of concealer. I'm not a huge fan of cream highlighters, so that rarely gets used. I think the green and purple are intended to cover red and yellow tones, but using them on my actual face is a serious no-go - they're just too …Read more

Mascara - Avon - SuperExtend Winged Out Mascara

I really like this product. It had more staying power than my Maybelline mascaras and was definitely not clumpy. I don't know if I'd call it "clump- and flake-proof" like the catalog claims, but it ranks up there. The brush fits really tightly down into the tube so it can be a little bit of a hassle to get more product out. I received the Black free with a Valentine's …Read more

This is my go-to spring scent. It's light, it's not obnoxiously floral, and it has a lot of personality. I prefer the rollerball (I think it may have been LE?) applicator and keep it in my purse. It smells best on me about 2 hours after application, or when I've been in direct sunlight for 15+ minutes.

This was the first item I ever bought off the internet from Kaufmann's in 2001. It's a nice spring/summer scent still, and it was pretty much the only fragrance I wore from 2001 to 2003. It never smelled weird on me, even after 12+ hours, and I got compliments on it constantly. It also doesn't attract bees, which is a major plus for a spring/summer fragrance! I did have problems …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Russian Red

This is, without a doubt, my favorite MAC lipstick. It's classic and bold without being obnoxious. If you're new to red lips, I suggest starting here - if this doesn't look amazing on you, it will at least give you a very good idea of what direction to go in. It lasts 6-7 hours on me under normal conditions. I recommend using a lip balm about 30 minutes before applying.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Damn Glamorous

I picked this up recently as I was looking for bluish reds to add to my lipstick collection. I like this color a lot. It doesn't LOOK blue-red unless you hold it up next to a true red or an orange-red, which works well on my skintone. My only problem was staying power - I had to touch it up after about 3 hours. Other MAC mattes I've gotten double that from.

(NOTE: This is a review of the PRODUCT, not a review of the company. I purchase my LC items through third parties on eBay or Amazon using gift cards or PayPal.) I have Red Velvet, Pink Velvet, Black Velvet, and Wicked now. I love all four. The texture is pretty much perfect for a matte lipcolor. They're highly pigmented and have tons of staying power. I use a lipliner as I've had …Read more

Hair - Manic Panic - Wildfire Semi-Permanent Dye

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/11/2015

I did two bleach washes on my dark red, overpigmented hair before applying a mixture of Manic Panic's Wildfire and Rock N Roll Red which I left on for about 6 hours. The bleach could have done a better job, but I have ZERO complaints about the dye. It didn't dye my sink or shower, it was easy to apply, it didn't have an offensive smell, it took to my hair really well, and I have …Read more

Apr/11/2015

I picked up a bottle of this at Sally's in October and I've used about a quarter of it over various brands of polish. I honestly thought it was HG material until I did my Valentine's mani which included white. (I normally wear dark polish colors.) What the heck?! Within 36 hours, it turns peach! I tried it over two brands of glitter and two brands of white polish, and both times it …Read more
