Polishes - REVLON - Nail Enamel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

I've tried loads of other lower and higher-end polishes: Sally Hansen, Wet and Wild, Essence, Avon, OPI, Essie, Nicole, CND etc. and for the price/wear, plain old Revlon polishes always come out on top. The formula is thin enough to be buildable but isn't so thin as to be runny. Dries fairly quickly and, as long as you use a base coat, settles nicely into your nail. The colours are …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Gel Couture Color (All Colors)

2.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

Because I love Essie's colours and have had a fair amount of success with polishes from their regular line, I decided to splurge and try a medium beige-pink shade from Gel Couture along with the top coat. In Canada, these polishes cost 13-14 dollars each when not on sale. I will say, the polish applied beautifully and it was a true, creamy opaque. I had high hopes, using it with the First …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Basics

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/04/2016

My HG palette for a natural, every day look. Or for a matte, smokier evening look. I got this 6 or so months ago and have used other eyeshadows about two times since. I use the darkest shade to fill in my brows (perfect match), the lightest shimmery shade for a highlighter, and the middle shades as shadows. I love them all. I always use primer, so I can't speak to their staying power without …Read more

Lipstick - Sephora Collection - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick (All Shades)

4.0

Jul/04/2016

An awesome introduction to the world of matte liquid lipsticks without spending a fortune. I have it in Marvelous Mauve, and it dries as a slightly-taupe mauve on me. Good for everyday wear. I don't find it overly drying (for what it is) and just apply a lip balm after I'm finished wearing it.

I feel like this lipstick would stay flawless as long as I could hold out without …

Lipstick - Arbonne - Smoothed Over Lipstick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/04/2016

What to know about me:
I have this lipstick in Camellia (7930).
I have light/medium skin that is on the warmer side and dark features.
I'm not the hugest lipstick junkie, but I have (probably unrealistically) high expectations for high-end makeup.
I'm not an Arbonne rep, and was pretty skeptical of their products.

The product: I actually really like this …

Eye Primer - Too Faced - Shadow Insurance - Lemon Drop

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/28/2016

Too Faced's original Shadow Insurance is my favorite eye primer, but when I saw Lemon Drop at the store, I figured I'd give it a shot. I can have quite a bit of discoloration around my eyes, and thought it might be a time saver.
Nope.
When this tube's done, it's back to the original for me. Lemon Drop doesn't have as much staying power, and it really …
