Misc Beauty Tools - Urban Decay - The Revolution Eyelash Curler

Wow, I'm surprised this has gotten such crappy reviews!

Personally, I haven't had any major issues using this curler. It doesn't pinch my eyelids the way most other curlers I've tried have and it feels very sturdy. It isn't perfect, but for me, it's pretty close.

It really doesn't seem all that different from other curlers. The cage-free …

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Fiji

Like other reviewers have said, the formula sucks. It's streaky and difficult to apply evenly.

The color is beautiful, but it's a total pain to apply. So bummed.

Why do I buy things without checking MUA first?

This stuff is awful. I didn't realize this was a matte formula, otherwise I would have never bought it. But I got home, saw the "matte suede" label and figured I'd give it a shot anyway.

2 thin coats, 1 thin coat of clear glossy top coat (OPI). It went on easily and dried to the touch quickly, but it …

Treatments (Face) - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Honey

LOVE! I use some local wildflower honey as a mask, spreading a thin layer on my face and leaving it for at least 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water. My skin immediately calms down, feels smoother and redness is minimized.

I have super dry skin and I get occasional breakouts, but since I started using honey masks 4-5 times a week, my skin has been clearer and the breakouts …

Polishes - China Glaze - Temptation Carnation

I kinda hate this color. A little too childish for me, reminds me of the sort of nail polishes that used to come in those cheap dress-up makeup kits for little girls.

The formula is really thin and takes several coats to reach opacity. And even one coat takes forever to dry.

Looks really pretty in the bottle, but I'm not a fan of how it looks on me.

Polishes - OPI - Let Me Entertain You

5.0

Jun/29/2011

I adore this color. It's a great magenta with plenty of fine glitter, and in some lights, it almost looks like a cool red. Very flattering on my very fair, cool-toned skin.

Applies well, never had any problems with streaking or bubbles. And like all of the OPI polishes I've tried, it's very chip-resistant and the color stays true for a long time.

Misc Beauty Tools - NYC New York Color - Eyelash Curler

3.0

Jun/29/2011

Not loving it. I find that it's too wide to comfortably get to all of my lashes without pinching. And the pad is too firm for my taste, meaning I have to give my lashes a really good squeeze to get any curl, so I worry that this will break off my lashes. The curler I was using before had a bit more give to it, so I barely had to touch my lashes to get the curl I wanted (I'm pretty sure …Read more

I love this brush set. The brushes are sooo soft and lovely to use, especially since my skin is quite dry and sensitive. Everything applies so nicely, and without the irritation of too-stiff bristles or animal hair allergies.

The little pouch it comes with is nice. Personally, I don't carry makeup in my purse aside from lipgloss, but if you do carry it around with you, the pouch …

Oh, what high hopes I had for this one. I've been looking for a concealer that will match my extremely fair skin, but this was still a bit too dark/orange to look natural on me. I added a swatch to the review page so you can see what it looks like. For reference: I'm somewhere around a MAC NW15, or L'Oreal True Match C1. I'm reading other reviews from ladies who have cool skin …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Box O'Powder Blush - Dandelion

Jun/28/2011

I'm extremely pale and I don't really like a ton of color on my cheeks since I have some pink in my skin anyway, so this very subtle wash of pink is perfect. It doesn't pack the punch of pigment that most blush does, so if you're looking for intensity, look elsewhere.

For those more interested in just a hint of color, I think this is great. I like that I can just …
