Hair Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Homemade Ketchup Toner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2018

I am absolutely stunned at how well this worked. I had colored my hair with a level 6, light brown, double ash permanent color from Clairol Professional with 20V cream developer. My hair always pulls warm so I also used an ash intensifier. I’ve done this before with great results, but this time used too much of the ash intensifier. My hair had a definite gray/green thing going on. I wasn’t …Read more

Nails - Unlisted Brand - Jamberry Nails- Nail Shields

May/28/2016

I have mixed feelings about these. I usually wear gels that I do myself, and by layering and mixing my colors I can do pretty much any color I want. What I am not good at is nail art, and these can fill that bill. A pattern for a holiday or special occasion is what I use these for, but for no more than a day or two.. They just don't last. Mine start to peel fairly quickly.
They are …

Tools - Urban Decay - Grind House (sharpener)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2013

This is a good sharpener. It works well on 24/7 liners, and not many do. BUT, I returned mine and won't repurchase because its too expensive. I noticed the blade on this is stamped "Made in Germany" , and it has a little logo on it that looks like a crown or something. I saw this same stamp/logo on the Maybelline Expert Tools duo sharpener, so I picked that one up. Works just …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Foundation / Loose - Light Medium

2.0

Mar/23/2013

Bought the new version in the clear jar with the black lid. I do not like it at all. I bought it to use as a setting powder, not as a foundation. It's good i did because this does not have nearly enough coverage on its own, even considering how sheer its supposed to be. I am an NC25, a MUA on the MAC online chat told me to get Light/Medium. It's too light, I look very pale and …Read more

Self Tanners - Lancôme - Flash Bronzer Tinted Self-Tanning Leg Gel with Pure Vitamin E

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2012

This is the best self-tanner I've tried. It applies well, dries quickly, and leaves a nice touch of color. The tint makes it really easy to see where you've applied it. I also like the shimmer, it feels like I dressed up my legs a bit. It doesn't give a ton of color, more like evens out skin tones and disguises imperfections. But what color it does give is even and fades …Read more

Polishes - OPI - A Sparkle Yule Love

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2011

EDIT- Ugh, I had to come back and take another lippie off. I've only had this on for 2 days and it chipped terribly. All my other OPI nail polishes have been lasting 5-7 days. As difficult as it was to apply, and the lack of staying power, it's definitely not worth it.
ORIGINAL REVIEW- This is part of the Holiday 2011 collection. I found it at Ulta and fell in love on …

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - Revitalift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2011

I have been using this for a couple years now. I have normal to dry skin, and am 38 so have lines beginning in my forehead and around my eyes. I have almost always been happy with L'Oreal products, and this is no exception. I need something that will clean well without drying out my skin, this product is it. If I have full eye makeup on, I do use an eye makeup remover first, but if I …Read more

Foundations - Maybelline New York - New Instant Age Rewind Foundation

Nov/26/2011

I have been using MAC Studio Finish for a long time. It does provide good coverage, but I have noticed lately that after awhile, it starts to cake up and look gunky under my eyes. Not cute. I have dark circles under my eyes that aren't horribly bad, but bad enough that I need something good to cover them up. I saw the positive reviews for this and came across it on sale at Target. …Read more

Lip Gloss - Stila - Raisin Lip Glaze

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/23/2011

Bought this in the Ulta 3-pack as well. For $12, it's a great value. I know I will use up at least 2 of the 3 colors. I have been looking for a lip color that's a little darker/brighter than my usual ones. I saw this set and thought Raisin might fit the bill. It's a very pretty, shimmery reddish pinkish shade, with some gold shimmer. I love it on me, brightens up my entire …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Victoria's Secret - Tinted moisturizer

Jun/03/2011

I love this product. I have been looking for a TM that offers a bit more coverage while still feeling like a TM, and this is it. It goes on smoothly, has a silky texture, blends easily, and gives a nice amount of coverage without feeling heavy. It also contains antioxidants and SPF 15.
I was using Smashbox Sheer Focus for awhile, but it has a yellow undertone to it, and didn't …
