Oct/20/2011

I work at a spa in NYC and all the nail technicians and the nail obsessed have been DYING to get our hands on charisma. and during a recent inventory sweep, we found two. so i bought it immediately.

i am so not disappointed. the color is a beautiful bright neon pinky purple in the sun and a beautiful punchy purple inside.

also, i didn't bother reading the neg reviews …

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Polyester Bride

Good for inner corner and highlight color, awful with glitter fallout. But if you like glitter (and the fallout most glitters come with) then this is a fun white color.

Makeup Brushes - Everyday Minerals - New Flat Top Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/11/2011

I wish for the "Would you buy this product again?" question there was a "in a heartbeat" option because for this brush that's what I'd check. I use it for liquid foundation on the daily. It washes great for me. I haven't had any problems with the handle although some users below did.

The brush is dense and soft and travel size friendly. It's …

Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Smoky ShadowBlast in Silver Sky

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/27/2011

When this product came out I was most attracted to this color combo, and when I spotted it in a kit with CoverGirl Last Blast (both for the price of the mascara), I jumped on it. I tried it the next day. I used UDPP as I usually do. The colors went well together. At first, I thought ok, this looks nice. But in about 30 minutes, literally, Crease-city. My eyelids looked filthy because the only …Read more

Eyes - Stila - Kitten Smudgepot

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/27/2011

I use this sumdgepot as a second base (on top of UDPP) for going out when I have shimmery sparkly eyes. The shadow will not move for the entire night and it really warms up my eyes.

I have this in it's smaller form from a Holiday smudge pot collection and I have not run out yet. I guess I don't go out enough.
I will repurchase when I run out because it it useful to …

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/17/2011

I love this product. The SA told me because of the lemon juice in it (it has a lemon's worth) it also gets rid of dead skin cells. I used it before I pushed and trimmed my cuticles and my nails looks great. and feel great. It is very greasy so if you dislike greasiness turn away from this product. It also has a very very strong smell which I don't mind at all. My cuticles haven't …Read more

Polishes - American Apparel - Nail Lacquer (All Shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2010

I bought one American Apparel nail lacquer back many moons ago when they were first coming out. I bought Hassid, because it was reviewed by the Daily Nail as the best black nail polish she had used. If you like black nail polish, YOU NEED HASSID. It is a one coat black nail polish. Perfect for achieving (obviously) black nails, nail art, or black konad. I have since purchased 9 other nail …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - Envy

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2010

For starters, in general, I would probably not find a reason to repurchase any nail polish because I've never run out of a single color in my entire life--literally.

This polish is a dark deep forest-y almost black green. It, like many of it's similar colors (OPI HTAT and OPI SSITP) are grainy upon application instead of creamy or jelly-like. The formula is thick and the …

Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - Gel Eyeliner Ivy Shimmer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2010

I forayed into Bobbi Brown cosmetics because I had a gift card, and I had heard amazing things about her gel liners, from beauty bloggers all around. I picked this color because I don't have a green gel liner, and I didn't just want another black one when I have three of those. This was the most amazing gel liner I've used to date. So pigmented. Unlike my stila smudge pots and MAC …Read more
