Concealers - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

3.0

3 months ago

Best concealer I've used. It does the job very well, covers my dark circles and the redness around my nose. In a pinch I can even use it as foundation. It does require setting with powder, since it can appear oily otherwise.

BUT. Since IT Cosmetics was sold to L'oreal, it isn't as easy to blend. I know some thought it never was, but I never had a problem blending …

Contour - wet n wild - Coloricon Contouring Palette

3.0

5 months ago

I have fair skin but the Dulce de Leche works well for me. The product itself is really excellent—it blends well and is very pigmented.

But the packaging is the worst I’ve ever seen so I’m taking off two lippies. I’m on my third one because the lid breaks off before I can put a dent in the product, and I’m not careless with it. The current one just broke. I would be willing to …

Top/Base Coats - wet n wild - MegaLast Hard As Ice Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/26/2017

I bought this product after wasting my money on OPI's top coat, which had no shine and wasn't dry even after twelve hours. I'm really pleased with this one, though I've only used it twice. I applied it four hours before bed, and I expected to have sheet marks next morning, but I didn't! My nails were perfectly glossy. I like the amount of shine I get, and it protects …Read more

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Top Coat

Sep/22/2017

Believe the bad reviews---they're all true. To be honest, I didn't. I thought people were just not understanding that this top coat is not fast dry, so they were putting it on wet nails and it naturally wasn't working. Wrong.

I polished my nails yesterday (2 coats) and let them dry for an hour. They were thoroughly dry; I could tap one nail sharply with another and …

Conditioner - TRESemmé - Tresemme Botanique Curl Hydration Conditioner

Aug/11/2017

Complete dimethicone-heavy garbage. I had a coupon for a free conditioner with shampoo purchase, so I decided to give Tresemme one more chance, against my better judgment.

My hair is very thick, curly, and wiry, so it can handle heavy conditioners. In fact, I need them to weigh my hair down somewhat. This crap left me with a head of poofy, woolly, frizzed-out fuzz with ZERO curl …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Deep Clean Facial Cleanser

Jul/11/2017

I recommend staying away from this product. I bought it yesterday and used it for the first time in my shower today. I got a little of the suds in my eyes, and it felt like acid. The label says to flush with water if that happens. I did that. It's been an hour and my eye is still burning somewhat. I'm not interested in a facial cleanser that's going to cause me actual pain if …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Turquoise & Caicos

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/11/2017

Okay, get ready for a strange review. I bought a bottle of this polish, thinking that it was a bright sky blue-green because that's the way I remembered seeing it in review pics. But the color I purchased is a light, milky sage green...a cross between two other Essie shades, Mint Candy Apple and Parka Perfect.

I got it home and read online that T&C is a fader...so clearly …

Conditioner - OGX - Quenching Coconut Curls Conditioner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/27/2017

This conditioner just did not work for me at all. I have 3b curls, below shoulder length, very thick, coarse, wiry hair. There just wasn't enough moisturization and there was almost no curl definition. It left my hair feeling soft, but that's only because it was a big, floofy, frizzy cloud of fuzz. That's not surprising, since dimethicone is the third ingredient, coconut oil …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

Mar/26/2017

Yeah, I'm really liking this mascara. I didn't expect I would, since I get very good results with CG Professional Lash in the raspberry pink tube, but this one might have the edge.

The wand is thick, and the brush is fat, but I just handle them with a little care and I don't have any mistakes. Sweeping from the very bottom of the lash, turning the wand about three …
