Palettes - MILANI - Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection - All

5.0

7 months ago

I have this palette in Smoky Essentials and for reference I am a NC 20 or 25 depending on the season. I have amazing high end palettes with quality shadows that I love. My current fav is Pat McGrath I Subliminal. The transition shade is to die for. I also have a bit of OCD and seeing dips in that shade cause anxiety. I picked the Smoky Essentials up at Target on clearance in hopes of finding a …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Define A Lash Waterproof

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2017

I like the way it makes my lashes look. I don't like how it makes above my crease look. I have slightly hooded lids and long lashes. This stuff transfers above my crease like crazy. Black spiky imprints are not a pretty look, and I would not expect it with a waterproof mascara.

Eyeliner - PAT MCGRATH LABS - PermaGel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2017

Pros: Very soft, no tugging on the eye. Very pigmented.

Cons: Does not stay put on my waterline. It definately transfers to the lower waterline and migrates to the inner corner.

I purchased this to use in my waterline, but my cheap Essence liners do a much better job staying put in my waterline. The Pat Mcgrath does stay put on the upper and lower lid but it is hard to get …

Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Prism Eye Shadow Palette

I had mostly discounted this palette because the colors were not speaking to me online, but Ulta had 20% off and 5x points so I decided to give it a try. I am very surprised to find myself really enjoying it. The shimmers are most impactful applied wet or with a finger, but they are beautiful. I love Dimiension, Spnix, Throne, and Osiris. The mattes are also great, especially Eden, Lure, and …Read more

Toners - Biologique Recherche - Exfoliating Lotion P50

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2017

(44 yrs old, originally dry, but now more on the normal/dry) I've been using Biologique Recherche P50 for two years and cannot imagine my nightly routine without it. It smells like Chloraseptic and it can "tingle" (translation- burn); both things I have come to love. I could probably substitute most of my skincare with similar products, but you won't find me without …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Smith and cult - doe my dear

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2017

I have hundreds of polishes... many hundreds - mostly OPI (including many black labels), China Glaze, Zoya, and Essie, but I also have my fair share of indie polishes. I received Doe My Dear in my Beautylish Lucky Bag (Jan 2017) and instantly fell in love because THIS STUFF does NOT CHIP. It is now my go to polish when I am traveling. They don't have a huge library of colors but I've …Read more

Mascara - LORAC - Pro mascara + fiber

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/03/2016

I must have lived through the Great Depression in my past life because I will force myself to use something up even if I don't like it. That I threw Lorac's Pro mascara+fiber in the trash after 3 uses is saying something. I naturally have relatively full, long lashes but they are blonde. This mascara gave my lashes length (barely), but it looked like I had about 3 lashes on each eye - …Read more

May/14/2015

I am a self tan novice but I've reached the age where sun damage is instantly evident (say it ain't so!). Have you ever looked melted after being in the sun all day? Kinda like "that poor candle needs to be replaced"? I have, it's not pretty. That "sun kissed glow" is Gone,Gone, Gone and I'm paying for all of the damaged I caused in my carefree youth. …Read more

Polishes - OPI - It's A Boy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/13/2015

I picked up the last bottle of It's a Boy at my local beauty supply. I have not seen it elsewhere and could not find anything online. I believe It's a Girl has been out for several years and OPI has finally released its sibling. It's a Boy looks just like its name would lead you to believe; it's dusty, periwinkley and has a lovely silver shimmer. I could not find anything like …Read more

I didn't have the coverage issues others mentioned. True, it is a bit watery, but mine was true to color in two coats. I put a third coat on for good measure, although not required. Color was beautiful; lovely shimmer effect. I will reach fir this color again.
