Hair Treatments - Ion - Bond Repair Therapy Masque

Mar/02/2017

I'm quite impressed with this product! I was looking for a more affordable alternative to the Olaplex No 3 treatment. I've used this product twice since I purchased it and am very pleased with the results!

While the ingredients are rather different, the results I got from the Ion product are functionally identical to the Olaplex treatment! I have bleached ombre hair, and the …

Moisturizers - L'Oreal Paris - Hydra Genius (Normal/Dry Skin)

5.0

Feb/01/2017

This is an interesting little product! While I'm absolutely in love with it, it's not without faults.

The packaging is gorgeous, heavy, and dispenses just the right amount of product for my face and neck. The smell is also wonderful! I'm not quite sure what it is, but it's bright and summery.

The moisturizer itself eels more like a serum than a …

Moisturizers - Equate - Regenerating Micro-Remodeling Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2017

I purchased this product because I wanted to try the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting moisturizer, but didn't want to spend the money on it in case I didn't like it.

The Equate brand has far exceeded my expectations!

I purchased the moisturizer just hoping that it would be a solid moisturizer that wouldn't clog my pores. I have hormonal papules of acne along my …

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

Jan/18/2017

This is HANDS DOWN the best drugstore foundation I have ever tried, and I've been using them for over 15 years!

The color selection at my Walgreens was pretty slim, but there are 20 shades on their website. I purchased the lightest shade the store carried, and it turned out to be a nice match. I would consider the coverage to be medium but buildable. I've used the new NYX …

Eye Shadow - Violet Voss - HG (Holy Grail) Palette

May/10/2016

This eyeshadow palette is *almost* holy grail status! I've never had a Violet Voss eyeshadow before, but I'm impressed with the quality!

The shimmer shades are soft and buttery and swatch like a dream! The matte shades are a little dryer and don't swatch quite as well, but they perform wonderfully over primer. I didn't experience much fallout at all, and what …

Palettes - Too Faced - Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette

5.0

Apr/19/2016

This has already become one of my favorite palettes! I love the way the colors all work together to create effortless looks. The metallic shades are so wonderfully pigmented without needing to wet your brush, and the dark colors also have a really nice color payoff IMO. Some of the colors (white peach, nectar, peaches 'n cream) may not show up well on fairer skin tones, but that doesn't …Read more

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara

Sep/30/2014

I really like this brow gel! It has a nice tint that isn't too warm, which happens IMO with a lot of drugstore brow products. It has a nice mix of color and holding ability, which I really appreciate. My only complaint is that the wand makes ZERO sense to me. The bulb at the end is way too big unless you're Groucho Marx, and the thin part is unusable because the ginormous bulb blocks it …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Gelaze

I purchased this at Sally while it was on sale for about $5, which is half price. I got a pale pink shade called Diva Bride.

Application was easy because you don't need any base coat - just polish and top coat. It took 2 layers of polish to get good polish payoff, but this is a fairly sheer pink. Both coats of color that I put on were very thin and cured easy in 30 seconds (each) …

Top/Base Coats - Unlisted Brand - American Classics - Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat

4.0

Aug/19/2014

My first bottle broke within 24hrs of purchase. I think it was a flaw in the glass, because I dropped it less than 6 inches onto a relatively soft surface... :(

My 2nd bottle has been awesome. This is a thicker polish, which is where I think the "gel" aspect of the polish comes from. The trick with Gelous is to apply it in thinner coats - thick coats take eons to dry and …

Treatments - Nicole - Drying Drops

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/19/2014

Really like this product! Takes 2 drops on larger nails. Make sure to wait about a minute after your top coat of polish before putting on the drops or the polish won't dry quickly. They're dry to the touch about a minute after using the drops and you're totally good to go after 5 minutes. The polish will still feel pliable for a little while, but I was able to go about my usual …Read more
