Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter (All Shades) [DISCONTINUED]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/24/2013

Price: $7.50 (?)
Location: Target

I really don't understand the hype around this product for a number of reasons. I'm giving this product two stars only because I kind of like how they feel on my lips. Other than that, I can say these literally have the worst staying power of any lipstick I have ever tried. If you want an overpriced lip balm, check these out. These are …

Hair Removal - NADS - Facial Wax Strips

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2013

Location: Target
Price: $5
Contents: 12 sets of 2 strips, 4 post-wax wipes

The good: I really like these strips. (Their body ones are another story - DON'T get those.) I had never waxed my face before, and I am on my second box. I use these at night, so my face won't be red for the rest of the day. They aren't too painful. I use them on my upper lip and unibrow …

Tinted Moisturizer - COVERGIRL - CG Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer in Light to Medium

5.0

May/21/2013

Purchased: Target
Price: $6
Recommend to: Budget, minimal coverage seekers, slight redness/uneven skin tone

I'm now on my second bottle of this. It's now marketed as a BB cream, and it basically works the same way. Same formula. If you're looking for coverage for more than an uneven skin tone or redness - do not buy! I put this on first, under my Clinique matte …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish by Kate Moss (All Shades)

3.0

May/21/2013

Purchased at: Target
Price: $4
Would recommend to: Those looking to try out a variety of reds in different shades, those on a budget.

I almost exclusively wear matte lipsticks, and I also mostly wear reds. I went out in a limb and decided to buy three of the non-matte ones - but that's for another review. Overall, comparing these to my modest lipstick collection …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Clump Crusher Mascara

3.0

Jan/13/2013

Purchased: Target
Price: $7
Real rating: 3.9 stars


I bought this after seeing the many rave-reviews on /r/MakeupAddiction. I'm definitely not one to wear mascara, as I usually think it looks fake and then my lashes hit my glasses, etc. I put this on after using the NYC lash curler ($3), and overall I really liked it, however, I give it almost four stars instead of …

Jan/13/2013

Price: $2.25 or $9
Purchased: Victoria's Secret
13g/.46oz

I got this in the Wintermint flavor for Christmas, and absolutely love it. I went back to pick up another, and to my surprise they were on sale for $2.25! I now have about $20 stashed away to last me another year or so. I had never used a lip gloss before (more of a lipstick person), but I love this one …

Pressed Powders - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Powder

Jan/12/2013

Price: $ ~10
Purchased: Target
Color: W3

After using up MAC Studio Fix I received as a gift, I began searching for a cheaper alternative. This isn't a dupe for SF, but it suits my needs very well, and I've hit pan! For the price, I think it's great. I've already purchased a back-up of this powder, and plan to use it for quite awhile. I used this product on …
