Top/Base Coats - Butter London - Hardwear PD Quick Topcoat

Oct/16/2013

This is my all-time favorite topcoat. It dries extremely fast on me - it's almost dry to touch on my first nail once I finish my 10th. It helps my manicures last longer. It's super glossy. However, I got it deeply discounted on sale, and I will not be repurchasing unless I can find it on sale again, because I just can't justify the price (about 10x as expensive as my second …Read more

Eye Shadow - FLOWER Beauty - Color Play Creme Eyeshadow

I have the shade Time Willow Tell; it's very sheer, and it creased within a few hours on me, with or without primer. It does last if set with powder eyeshadow, but it really isn't worth the trouble for something. There are a million sheer, sparkly powder eyeshadows I could use alone instead.

picked it up at walgreens today since MUB loves it - it was $3.99 and sealed in shrinkwrap (i am hesitant to buy unsealed items at the drugstore).

i was pleasantly surprised by the small brush, it's the type of brush i really like, and it really is a great mascara - i applied one coat and got decent length, great volume, and no clumps. i can get more length from fiber mascaras …

Pressed Powders - GUERLAIN - Météorites Illuminating Powder Compact

I love this powder - it's expensive, but it's amazing. It makes my foundation (MUFE HD) last twice as long as it does without powder. I have normal to dry skin, and it doesn't emphasize the dryness - it gives me a perfect, gorgeous finish.

Keep in mind that it has a strong scent if you're sensitive to that!

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Lanolips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm

Lanolips is a must have product for me - being in the US, I need to order it online, but it is absolutely worth it. When i have a cold, it is the only thing that will keep my poor chapped lips and nose in good condition without stinging. It is moisturizing and nongreasy. It also works beautifully under lipstick.

I would prefer a slant tip or narrow tip applicator, but I am glad it …

Nails - Unlisted Brand - Red Carpet Manicure System

Jan/07/2012

I haven't had a lot of success using the whole kit together - I end up with a too-thick manicure that peels off within a few days. However, after reading the reviews I'll give it another try, working really hard to get thinner coats.

HOWEVER - the reason I'm really glad I have this is the top coat. I will do a regular manicure (base coat, which is Essie first base, and …

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - High Beam Liquid Highlighter

Jan/07/2012

This is really nice product in some really terrible packaging. My high beam (full size) kept getting stuck, and I had to use my teeth to open it.

When I returned it - it just wasn't worth the hassle of trying to open it - the MA at Sephora couldn't open at all.

This doesn't show up on me at all. You can see the shimmer a little bit, but absolutely no color, not even a little, and not even if I apply heavily.

I'm a MUFE 117 or 120, depending on the season (I think that's about a N23 in MAC, I have neutral undertones).

I love corals and I heard great things about the blush. The quality is fine but it just. does. not …
