Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Stone

Apr/05/2016

I was intrigued by the greige and nude lip colours for awhile now, so I figured why not? Although, on most people it would appear like corpse lips, on my NC30-45 skin tone it doesn't look half bad. It's a very interesting shade and not one that most people would like to wear but I am usually draw to the strange and unusual, as I myself am strange and unusual. I usually just wear the …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam, Ariana Grande

Mar/21/2016

This is my first VG purchase since the 90s and when I first bought VG1. It's for charity, so I don't really consider this as a purchase but rather a donation, so today I'm testing out the VG Ariana lipstick. I bought it last week and decided to test it out today on a gloomy day. I filled my lips with the Nightmoth lip liner pencil first and put the Ariana lipstick over it. The …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Mehr

Mar/17/2016

Originally, I went to the MAC counter to pick up Twig but when i tried it on, it didn't do a thing for me. It just looked like i wasn't wearing any lipstick as my lips are some what pigmented and I use to rock Twiggy (what Twig was called back in the 90s), Del Rio, Paramount and Film Noir when brown lipstick was all the rage in the 90s but sadly 20 years later, something about Twig …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Colorburst Matte Balm (All Shades)

Mar/15/2016

So I bought this in Sultry as everyone seemed to rave about it being a close dupe for MACs Twig (a colour which I owned back in the 90's and totally forgot about until now) and not wanting to shell out the bucks for Twig, I tried this. The texture is perfect on the lips, the the pigment is there in one swipe and I do like the peppermint tingle and smell. It is a close enough match for Twig …Read more

Lips - Hard Candy - Velvet Matte Mousse Lip Color

5.0

Mar/07/2016

So I was browsing the cosmetics section in Walmart and came across these Hard Candy metal tins with Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colour tubes in them for $7.98 CAD so naturally, I was intrigued. The packaging was cute and had a mirror on the lid for application or touch ups and can be reused for other purposes, always a bonus.
I haven't tried any other liquid matte lip colours before …

Mascara - wet n wild - MAX FANatic Cat Eye Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/01/2016

I bought this to try as it was relatively new on the shelves. Promises cat eye look with volume and curl. Well I can say that there is a pretty wicked wand which does make my non existent lashes longer with curl but not so sure about the volume, maybe just a bit of volume. Also by mid day, I have noticed that it does smudge under my eyes and by the end of the work day, I have black marks which …Read more

Eyeliner - L.A. COLORS - Thin Tip Liquid Eyeliner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2016

I've never been the type of person that could do a winged eyeliner and I've purchased so many different types, gel eyeliner with a brush, liquid felt tipped eyeliners, pencils etc. but could never perfect it and was a bit skeptical about purchasing anymore liquid eyeliners. I went ahead since it was only $ 1.25 at my Dollar Tree store, I figured I had nothing to lose aside from $1.25 …Read more

Mascara - L.A. COLORS - Lash Building Mascara

5.0

Jan/24/2016

So I've been perusing cheaper cosmetics these days because food is more important to me than mascara. But I came across this at Dollar Tree and figured why not? I've been known to buy a lot of mascaras and find that they don't work for me either the formula or the brush. I've always had to buy waterproof mascara because my eyelids are so oily but they've always been so …Read more

Polishes - wet n wild - I Moss Have It

Dec/31/2015

Ive never tried the WnW brand of polishes before but the limited edition 2015 fall line caught my eye, especially i moss have it and keep vinyl alive as I am usually drawn to dark and unusual colours. i did want to get getting inked but apparently the sparkles didnt translate on the nails and just looked like a black creme which is a shame because it does look pretty in the bottle.
Onto my …
