Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Microfiber cloths

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/08/2008

I was "Google-ing" the Internet about a year ago for exfoliating/microdermabrasion products and ended up on eBay with the Microfiber cloths. I did more research on them and finally decided to buy one to see if it fulfilled all the claims. I have to say that it does!<p>I was skeptical that this was going to work differently from my other washcloths but was amazed when I felt the …Read more

Fragrances - Donna Karan - DKNY EDT [DISCONTINUED]

Sep/08/2008

I got this as a birthday present and I was first struck by the neat packaging! It looked kind of like an asymmetrical, long ice cube lol! I have to agree with the other reviews in that it is quite a unique scent. It's an interesting mix of fruity/floral with a dash of spicy for me. I usually like light floral or fruity scents but this one is so interesting I can make an exception. Definitely …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Everyday Minerals - Long handled Kabuki

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/08/2008

I got this brush as "research" for finding the perfect kabuki to apply mineral foundation and I have to say that for the price, especially if you were to get it in one of their kits, it really is a good quality brush! It is definiitely super soft and guaranteed not to scratch at all like their earlier natural hair brushes. The size of it is also perfect, especially for your purse or …Read more

Concealers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Tone Correcting Concealer

Sep/08/2008

For the price this is actually a decent, everyday concealer for my dark undereye circles. I was reading the reviews on this and I saw one by a friend of mine who I know compalins about her dark circles so when she gave a rave review, I just had to check this out!<p>It does have a weird fake sugary smell, but I actually don't mind it although I can see how those who are senstive may not …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly

4.0

Sep/08/2008

I actually only became interested in this product after seeing EnKore's (Makeup YouTube guru) video on concealing dark undereye circles. I have to say mine are some of the worse around and when I don't wear something to cover them up, people always ask me if I got any sleep or if I'm coming down with something, lol!<p>I don't wear MAC foundations but I am guessing …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blitz and Glitz

5.0

Sep/08/2008

I kept hearing rave after rave of the MAC Fluidlines so I couldn't help but grab this one when I got a gift certificate this last Christmas to satisfy my curiousity about this product.<p>
I decided on this color because I really don't like the edgier look of black liners and I wanted something other than the basic brown I usually wear so I settled on this one. It is a much …

Eyeliner - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

Sep/08/2008

I prefer to be as positive as I can about a product, but I have to say this is one of the few that makes it really hard. I bought this hoping it would perform like my Wet 'n' Wild liquid waterproof eyeliners but no such luck.<p> First of all, the applicator was way too floppy for me; WnW's had a stiffer bristle and did not "flop" on the eyeliner.<p> …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara

Sep/08/2008

There were so many raves about this when it first came out I couldn't help but be curious and purchase it to see what all the hype was about.<p> I think that this definitely helped to define my lashes and add a bit of volume and curl to them. These other reviews are not lying when they say it is pretty hard to take off!!! However, I've started using jojoba oil this year as both a …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Waterproof XXL

Dec/09/2007

They happened to run this on sale for less than $3 so I thought I'd give this a try. I've seen tons of reviews for the Shishedo Lash Base and wondered if this might help do the same thing?<p> I think that the base on this does kind off help to lengthen my sad, pathetic, short lashes quite a bit more, but I'm not too fond of the spidery and unnatural look it seemed to give …Read more

Eyeliner - NYC New York Color - Eye Liner Pencil in 921A (Black)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2007

I was needing a plain black eyeliner to try some new looks from a makeup book I bought so I thought I'd stick with a less expensive brand since didn't want to spend a whole lot and I really don't like wearing black on an everyday basis.<p> I was pleasantly surprised with this .94 product. I've gotten the Wet 'n' Wild pencils before and those usually have a …Read more
