Brows - Alima Pure - Blonde

I know this product is intended for brows but I use this for a daytime or natural eye look. I have fair skin, dark blue eyes, and dark hair and find that many brown eye shadows are too dark or muddy on me. Blonde is a perfect nude, golden, brown that really makes my eyes pop but looks totally natural. I pair this with Alima's satin matte eyeshadow in Vanilla and Lancome waterproof …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/04/2013

New Lover is the first NARS gloss pencil color I purchased and the color payoff, subtle enhancement, lovely texture, and long wear got me so addicted to these pencils I purchased Hopi (honey infused nude peach) and Happy Days (A rich pearly coral). New Lover really brightens the face with a pop of color and yet is not garish. It is a perfect warm gold infused pink shade that is subtle and makes …Read more

I have type 2 wavy hair which is a mixture of 2a/2b/2c. I really love this conditioner in the winter as it has no cones,protein, or glycerin which tends to be drying on my hair at low dew points. This conditioner is very moisturizing yet light weight. I think it would be a better as a leave in for type 3 or 4 hair types than as a wash out conditioner. It has a wonderful blend of argan and …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Carol's Daughter Choclat Blow Drying Cream

Jul/13/2012

I purchased this product in an attempt to blow dry my 2a/2b hair out to a more relaxed looking wave. The first time I used the product my hair turned out smooth and soft. The second time I used it my hair turned into a frizzy, dry looking hay stack. My hair tends to be protein sensitive and the using it the second time was a bit too much. For someone with fragile hair in need of strengthening …Read more

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Baked Eyeshadow-ALL

I purchased this baked eyeshadow in Toasted which is a lovely, softly shimmering shade of medium bronze with a peachy cast. The shadow applies smoothly with a eyeshadow brush and lasts all day paired with the E.L.F. eyeshadow primer. It is not the most pigmented shadow and you really need to apply two layers or wet it to build more color intensity. I subtracted 1 lippie for that reason.

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha Hair Gel

Jul/13/2012

I recently decided to switch to a gel this summer to combat the frizzies that my type 2 a/b hair is prone to in the summer. It is challenging to find a gel that does not have silicone, protein, or glycerin which are all things that cause my hair to dry out and frizz. This gel comes in a generous sized pump bottle for easy application. The scent is light and pleasant. It gives my waves soft …Read more

Eyeliner - REVLON - Colorstay Eyeliner - Teal

4.0

Jul/13/2012

This is a perfect eyeliner for summer. Colorstay eyeliners last all day on me paired with a primer like the E.L.F. one or UDP. This pencil is not totally waterproof and may fade slightly rather than run when you go in the pool or shower. It does not smudge and does not give you raccoon eyes even in the hottest weather. Some find that the pencil can dry out. This can happen if the cap is not …Read more

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Essential Primer Liquid Eyeshadow - Sultry Satin

Jul/13/2012

This product is both a primer and an eyeshadow. I purchased this in Sultry Satin which is a soft candlelit sandy gold. It looks lighter than the photos. I love that it has a doe foot applicator for easy application. As for making my shadows last I think the hold was comparable to UDP and Too Faced Primers but this one is a total steal at 2.00 a piece on their website. This shade has a very …Read more

Bronzers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Baked Bronzer (all)

Jul/13/2012

I purchased the baked bronzer in San Lucia which is the lightest shade in the trio of brozers. This shade is is more of a light golden bronze shade which is more suitable for light to fair complexions. The finish is more of a satin finish than matte or shimmery. I am not really into looking tanned as it is not a good look for me but this bronzer makes an amazing eye shadow for day wear. This …Read more
