Primer/ Corrector - Mary Kay - Foundation Primer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/09/2013

I bought this prior to knowing much about primers, and this was the first foundation primer I bought. I used it for about a year. I have dry skin, and with repeated use, my skin became dryer, and I felt like my pores became more visible. It did hold onto my makeup for day-to-day use, but was not the best for going out, or hot days. I'm not an oily skin person and rarely does my t-zone look …Read more

I have been using this e/s on and off for a year now, so I feel like it's time for a review!

I bought this color for $6 or so last year during the Sephora promotion, and for that price, and especially for the amount of e/s you receive, I really don't think I can complain. I would repurchase this item IF I ever run out... but I really don't think I will EVER run out …

Blush - Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Custom Blush & Highlighter

3.0

Jul/10/2011

I have the SS in Rosy Glow. I bought this compact as I wanted something that can multi-task as a blush, highlighter and an e/s. I have naturally rosy cheeks, so I wanted a blush that enhanced my cheeks and helped contour just a little bit.

Color payoff: low-medium. As a highlighter and an eyeshadow, the compact is almost perfect. It contrasts well enough with my natural skin tone so …

Polishes - OPI - White Shatter

Jul/09/2011

For reference, I've had the black, silver and red shatters and the several of the ChG Crackles as well. Apart from the SS, this is my favorite crackle that has been released. I swapped those away (along with the ChG ones), and WS is the 1st shatter that I decided not to swap away. (Well, so far lol)

Anyways... The WS has a thicker consistency than any other of the shatters, which …

Polishes - wet n wild - FastDry - Gray's Anatomy

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/25/2011

Let me just say something first. If this NP by definition is fast dry, I would probably end up becoming a SV addict... which will never happen. I love Grey's Anatomy, so when I saw swatches on Scrangie with a good review, I decided to head out and purchase this. ONLY my local Walgreens had this, so if you can't find it at CVS or Walmart, et.al. give it a try.

Color: Dupe for …

Nails - REVLON - Nail Enamel Iced Mauve 151

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/25/2011

I bought and was gifted a bottle of Iced Mauve back in late 2007 or early 2008, and just re-discovered it when I went home to visit.

Color: This color is more of a brown and purple-tinted pink than mauve. It's a darker shade that has a calmer aura. I wish it were almost browner or a little darker with a grey tint to make it edgy, but still acceptable to work setting. That said …

Jun/23/2011

My mom has the exfoliating scrub and my dad has this scrub and I've been using it over the summers when I come home from school. so this review is based on several months of use over several years.

Between the two, I like the men's more. It has menthol which leaves my face feeling fresher than the other. Other than that, they are identical to each other. The scrub is harsher …
