Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2018

I got a mini of this as a sample. Applying this like I do other mascaras produces terrible results for my lashes. They get clumped together. But if I use just the slightest of touch applying it, the results look much better. Not worth the hassle to make it workable.

Misc Beauty Tools - EcoTools - Color Perfecting Minis

These mini blenders work great applying under eye concealer. I like the shape of them and find them easy to handle. Also they clean better than other beauty sponges I have tried. I will keep repurchasing as I do replace my mini blender once a month since I use it on my under eye area. But 4 mini blenders lasts me 4 months as I have yet to have one tear. Great price point too.

Ugh, I am unsure about the heat protectant claims of this product but the main reason I will not be repurchasing is that where I sprayed my hair the product got on my skin and left a rash. I don't know which ingredient was the culprit but I got the full size and I'll have to be careful spraying it on my hair from now on. Also there is a smell to this product that I could see how …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz

Aug/14/2017

I am only giving this 3 lippies due to the fact that the caps on both ends of the Brow Wiz broke within a month. I don't know why this happened other than the quality of this is not that great for the packaging. The Brow Wiz itself is a lovely match for my thin brows and I can pencil them in nicely. It looks natural on me so I said I wouldn't repurchase but I am on the fence. Maybe …Read more

Eye Shadow - Tarte Cosmetics - Make Believe In Yourself Eye + Cheek Palette

Apr/23/2017

EDIT: (4/23/17) I forgot to add that there is little to no fallout of the eyeshadow.

The shade names drew me in along with the shimmer. I so far have enjoyed most of the colors in this palette. A couple of the neutrals I am not as excited about (magic and wings) but I will still be able to wear them. The rest of the shades I will get good use out of. I do find I have to pack it …

Apr/23/2017

I have repurchased this hand cream many times and will continue to do so. It saves my hands, especially in the fall and winter. About the smell, I have gotten used to it but I wear some cotton and cotton blend gloves on my hands when I use this and have no issue with the smell. When my knuckles get cracked from dryness I reach for this hemp hand cream and it heals them within days without any …Read more

Lipstick - ColourPop - Ultra Satin Lip Liquid Lipstick

I really enjoy this formula! It doesn't dry out my lips and stays put longer than a regular lipstick. It reminds me almost of a highly pigmented gloss but not as shiny. My only gripe with this is that I got it in the shade Femme and the color is much darker than what it looks like in the tube. But overall I would repurchase in a lighter shade knowing that it could run dark.

Lotions/ Creams - Badger - Cuticle Care

Feb/04/2017

I found out about this Badger cuticle care from reading a review on MUA and decided to check it out. It helps my nails immensely with general nail care and cuticle care. It has a pleasant scent and I leave it on for about 10 minutes at a time before washing it off. I would repurchase but it lasts awhile so I haven't had to repurchase yet.

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Shading Brush

Aug/26/2016

I had the lighter purple handled shading brush and had to replace it after bristles were coming out. I had it a couple of years and it was dense and soft. I recently bought the reformulated shading brush with the bright purple handle. It is nowhere as nice as the old brush. It is not dense. I don't know what they did when they redid the brushes but I prefer the old brush better. I …Read more

Aug/09/2016

EDIT:
This moisturizer seems to pill on me a little bit. I still like the overall look but pilling is not worth the high price to repurchase.

I love the rich texture of this moisturizer with spf. It feels luxurious going on. I have slightly oily skin and this leaves a matte finish to my skin. I have a sample size of this product from the 2016 Sun Safety Kit from Sephora. This …
