Lips - Lime Crime - Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/13/2014

I recently tried one of the LC Velvetines in the color Pansy. It's nice, but not as nice as I was expecting, & the color is nothing like how it looks on the site. I know colors can vary due to how your monitor's set, but this is such a huge difference that I don't think it's just a matter of that. The product description lists it as a true royal purple, & shows it as …Read more

Lips - Unlisted Brand - Pretty Zombie Liquid Lipstick, 3 Witches

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/13/2014

I really love matte lipstick, especially liquid lipsticks, which tend to be very long lasting on me (generally lipsticks don't tend to last long on me at all), & I really love purple, so I decided to try Pretty Zombie in the color 3 Witches. If you like purple lipstick, this color is an absolute must. Despite the fact that there are a ton of purples on the market, it actually believe it …Read more

Makeup Brushes - IT Cosmetics - Airbrush Blending Crease Brush #105

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2014

This brush is THE BOMB!!!!!! Like seriously, I don't even know how I lived without it, & I'm planning to not only buy more It brushes, but extras of this brush because you can never have too many crease/blending brushes, & I always like to have a clean brush on hand for blending. As into makeup as I am, I was never really one to buy 'fancy' brushes-there are many …Read more

Concealers - Physicians Formula - Conceal RX

5.0

Nov/20/2014

This stuff is seriously AMAZING!!! Physicans Formula is one of those brands I usually just pass on by at the drugstore-it's kind of pricey, & very limited IMO. But I had a $6 off coupon, so I decided to use it on the Conceal RX. I must've seen this product about a zillion times at the drugstore, & the reason I'd always passed it over besides the fact I usually don't go …Read more

Eye Primer - wet n wild - Fergie Take on the Day Eyeshadow Primer [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2014

I'd always raved about Milani eye primer as being my favorite, preferred over Urban Decay, Too Face, & Nars primers, so I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I think I like this Wet n Wild one over the Milani. This does everything the Milani does, & goes a few steps beyond. First off, while both make the shadow go on more vibrant, I think this one makes it go on just a …Read more

Lip Gloss - L.A. Girl - Glazed Lip Paint

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/17/2014

These were only $3 at a beauty supply I go to & they looked intriguing so I picked up 3 of them-Daring, Etude, & Tempt. They are extremely pigmented, shiny, & opaque. They come in a lot of really pretty colors. I think the idea is to be sort of like the OCC Lip Tars. I've never tried the OCC lip tars other than just swatching them on my hand at Sephora, so I can't really say …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyebrow Cake Powder ECP06 Blonde

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/13/2014

FINALLY found exactly what I was looking for as far as brows! I have dark brown hair & brows, & while there's no shortage of dark brown brow products & eyeshadows, it's actually kind of hard to find cool toned ones with absolutely no hints of reddish in them or warm tones in them. Even stuff that claims to be neutral or cool toned often times doesn't. I like to use both …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Vice 3

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2014

I got the Vice 2 last year, & love it, so I knew if I liked the colors for Vice 3 I'd be getting it this year, & I did. I'd heard some mixed reviews on it, but I have to say that I'm in love with this palette! It's very versatile, like there's enough of a range of colors to do dramatic smokey looks, bold colorful looks, more conservative neutral looks, & …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Wicked Lippie

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2014

I often times wear nude, but occasionally I do wear colors & when I do it's usually purples. So when I saw this line of lipsticks come out, I knew I had to get one of the purples, but I couldn't decide which, so I decided to get both of the purple colors in the line. They're only $6 each, so I figured why not. I'm really happy I decided to go for both of them, because both …Read more

Shampoo - Garnier - Fall Fight Shampoo

Created with Sketch.

Oct/06/2014

I have very long hair & tend to find hair everywhere-not like, in an alarming way, or unhealthy way, but it's just the strands are long so it seems like a pain in the butt. So this was on sale, I thought why not try it. At first it seemed OK, didn't see any difference in fall out, but seemed alright. But then after a little bit, it seemed like my hair felt drier than usual, & my …Read more
