Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Dare You

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2010

Dare You is probably my favourite red by MAC so far, but this isn't your classic red creme lipstick. It is more of a bitten, been making out - type red lipstick. The formula is really slippery and it will bleed and smear all over your teeth if you do not blot it. Lipliner won't help because this lipstick wears off easily leaving a red ring around the mouth. Once blotted though this …Read more

Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - Color Juice Bubble Gum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2010

I've previously given Color Juice glosses a mediocre review. In general I find the more pigmented shades leave much to be desired, and they're less smooth and moisturizing compared to their pricier Lancome sisters. I will make an exception for Bubble Gum, which is my go-to milky pale pink. I tend to forget about this one as I tend to want to use up my more expensive glosses before …Read more

Polishes - REVLON - Nail Enamel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2009

I recently started buying more of these polishes. Before discovering MUA, I hated revlon polishes. I didn't even know I needed a basecoat and topcoat with my polish, and I certainly hadn't discovered my holy grail topcoat (Poshe) which makes polish dry so fast and wear like iron. Now I've started using my Revlons again. Because they are free of the "big 3" chemicals …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Poshe - Super-Fast Drying Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/21/2009

Poshe is my holy grail topcoat! My problem is that this is hard to find in stores, but when I try other topcoats that are more widely available such as Out the Door and Oh So Wet, I get sheet marks! No matter how long I dry my nails. Poshe really penetrates through each coat of polish and doensn't while other seem to only dry the top layer, leaving your nails prone to dents. With Poshe my …Read more

Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Witchcraft Nail Repair

Mar/14/2009

I am not sure if they are discontinuing this product or simply repackaging the whole line, the company that makes this is called Daree and is based out of Mississauga, Canada. I bought this on clearance at Shoppers Drug Mart but I have see it's sister products like the nail strengthener,etc in new bottles. But I have bought about 3 backups of the nail repair just in case!

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Mimmy - Hello Kitty

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2009

I was a little disappointed with this colour. I only tried it on my hand at the counter so when I finally tried it on my lips at home it just looked like clear gloss on me. I agree with other reviewers that the hello kitty glosses are less thick and sticky than other MAC lipglasses, so this will be a keeper. It is just more of an everyday type of gloss than something really unique. But I …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Fun & Games - Hello Kitty [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/14/2009

Fun & Games kind of looks like NARS Amour in the pan but actually applies better on the cheeks with very fine gold shimmer. Although it's really sheer I wish MAC would make all their blushes this kind of formula, because some can look unnatural on me. The beauty powder blush applies like Benefit Dallas and Cargo Blu-Ray - soft and dusty.

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Lacquer Shine - Glossy

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2009

So disappointing! I really wanted a black with red shimmer and Sally Hansen is widely available at drugstores around here. I ended up buying this at a grocery store for about $7.50, which is expensive for drugstore polish. This came out on the brush in globs and was really runny on the nal. The finished look in the nail is true to this colour's name, "glossy", but the red …Read more

Polishes - FingerPaints - Gallery Glam

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2009

Gallery Glam is gorgeous! One of my favourite blues and probably one of my favourite colours ever. Others have described the colour accurately: dark navy blue bordering on black, but with really fine white shimmer throughout that gives the finished nail that super smooth, shiny, creamy look. Very wearable for a blue. I think I even wore this one to work.

Polishes - OPI - Fiji Weejee Fawn

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2009

This is part of my stash of workhorse polishes - colours that are appropriate for every situation. Fiji Weejee Fawn kind of reminds me of the inside of an oyster shell but the tones are strictly in the grey-sandy beige range which keeps it looking like the frosty oyster pinks that were prevalent in the 80s. I bought the old chemical OPI formula in a sale bin.
