Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex No.6 Bond Smoother

2.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I have chin length hair that is bleached completely, originally dark brown, so I definitely have to take care of it to keep it in shape and healthy. I have been using Olaplex 3 since it came out, plus several other oils and moisturizing and protein conditioners — pretty much anything and everything I can throw on it to help. I bought this right away because of the Olaplex name, but to be honest I …Read more

Lipstick - Kat Von D - Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Project Chimps

Bought on a whim and love this for fall! Beautiful brick red, looks great on my fair NC20 skin. I apply it just by dabbing it around my lips gently and then pressing them together to distribute it like a stain and it looks great this way. With this type of applicator I find it hard to apply more precisely around the edges of my lips (and I am too lazy to bring a pencil with me to use thru the day …Read more

I bought 4 of these on line when they came out - I was so excited cause I'd heard so about how great they were... Wow I am so disappointed and so sorry about such a waste of money as they are pretty expensive. Yes they are very pigmented, and feel very smooth in texture when swatched with the fingers but can almost blend "too well" and make a smudgy mess on the eyes, not to mention …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Pressed Powder Finishing Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/15/2016

I bought a small sample size cause I'm trying to carry less (or smaller) stuff with me and needed a new pressed powder as I have very oily skin that shines no matter what by mid-morning. I hate to pay this much for a pressed powder but this one is seriously good ... gives a super sheer finish that doesn't alter the colour of your face or foundation but looks totally natural and not …Read more

These are sticky, thick, super glossy and I love them. I have probably owned six or more over the years and they are great for nice sheer colour that really lasts (due to the heaviness of the formula) and great for being able to carry around anywear and reapply easily (no mirror required). I love the glossiness of them, and there are several great colours that are truely MLBB as well as some …Read more

Lip Gloss - Buxom - Full-On Plumping Lip Cream - Dolly

Mar/08/2016

Would I buy this again? YES, and I have .... now on my second one and finishing it up too as even though I probably have more than 50 lip products (hate to admit) this is one that I keep reaching for again and again as it is a perfect any-day colour, makes me look effortlessly polished, and is easy enough to swipe on without a mirror so I usually end up carrying it around in my pocket all day at …Read more

Stick - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation

Created with Sketch.

Mar/08/2016

My skin is generally oily, but has dry patches especially in winter weather. I had an EL foundation stick (now d/c'd) a long time ago and really liked the texture and ease of using it -- and the portability - so when I saw this while shopping for a foundation I thought I'd give it a try, especially as the colour range was so good. I am NC20-ish with a little olivey undertone at times, …Read more

Mar/07/2016

I am searching for my "perfect" foundation and saw this on sale so bought on a whim to try, plus I was going on a trip so thought a tube foundation would transport easily. I had high hopes that "matte" and "hydrating" would be perfect for me as my skin is combo -- usually oily & shiny all day and within 2 hrs of applying ANY makeup no matter what so I usually …Read more

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Gwen Stefani The Perfect Lipstick

Feb/16/2016

I usually use glosses, as I like the feeling of something emmolient on my lips all the time since they tend to get dry and I hate the feeling of dry lips. I recently got a sample of a (different) lipstick (actually a Rimmell one) that I really like and so this encouraged me to try another lipstick
- and I saw these in a recent trip to the store and decided to pick one up as the texture …
