Powder - Alima Pure - Satin Matte Mineral Foundation

5.0

I've been using Alima for four years now? I'm honestly not sure. Enough to have repurchased a few times. This foundation on me is not full coverage but it goes on so beautifully that I can hardly complain and with 45 shades I can match mine perfectly. The powder is soft and finely-milled and buffs on easily with my flat-top kabuki brush. It has never broken me out and it is so …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Tree Hut - Shea Moisturizing Body Lotion-Coconut Lime

5.0

Oct/04/2017

I can't believe I've never reviewed this. Several years going (and multiple repurchases) this is still my favorite lotion. Hand, body, you name it. It smells wonderful--sweet and fruity but not too strong. It sinks in quickly after just a minute of rubbing, but it also leaves a sort of intangible 'film' behind. I can't ever feel it on my hands, but then I'll go …Read more

Polishes - Mineral Fusion - Nail Lacquer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/27/2015

I've only tried two of these, but so far I love this brand. Application is a dream, a smooth, glossy and highly-pigmented dream. Fiery Lave is the most neutral red imaginable, and Berried Gem is a pink-purple glitter delight. The brushes are fairly large (though not Sally Hansen large) and aid in application, and the packaging is great. They're more than I want to spend on polish …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Triple Shine - Lemon Shark

1.0

May/27/2015

This is nearly the worst yellow polish I've ever had. Partly that's due to the greenish tint that makes this color almost ugly, and partly it's because even for a yellow it is astonishingly streaky. I think SH Triple Shine is a great line, but give this polish a pass.

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Triple Shine - Play Koi

I picked this up because A) it was on sale at Target and I can never resist a sale, and B) I'd had great luck with the Triple Shine line before. Apparently the luck has begun to fade. The formula is still good (smooth, few streaks, nearly opaque in one coat), but the color is almost ugly. It's an orange red that just looks garish. Unless that sounds like your color, I'd skip.

Polishes - REVLON - Parfumerie Spun Sugar Scented Nail Enamel

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/27/2015

This is the worst polish I have ever tried. I was optimistic at first, it went on such a lovely semi-matte silver. Then it streaked. And bubbled up. Despite the fact that I was sure it was dry, it still managed to smear and get nicks if I so much as breathed on it. And to top it all of, it had started chipping within 10 hours--and not small chips, but peeling off in big flakes. Admittedly …Read more

Polishes - REVLON - Parfumerie Wintermint Scented Nail Enamel

This is a lovely polish, a cool minty green with silver flecks. And yes it absolutely smells like mint! It's glittery enough that taking it off is a pain, but pretty enough to be worth the trouble. If you can catch it on sale, I definitely recommend picking it up (and skip Spun Sugar! ugh.)

Treatments - Orly - Nailtrition

May/27/2015

Not only would I buy this again, I have. I've been gardening and painting a house, as well as a lot of baking, and the combination has been hell on my nails. This polish is about the only reason they've survived. I put on two coats the first time, then a coat a day for about a week. At that clip, I run through the bottle pretty fast, but frankly this stuff is worth it. I removed …Read more

Hair Treatments - John Frieda - Go Blonder Lightening Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/25/2014

I have fine, straight, dark blond hair--sort of dishwater blond. I've tried different dyes to lighten my hair with little to no results. This is the only thing that REALLY works. If you're a brunette I doubt this will do anything for you, but my fellow blondes who just want to go a few shades lighter and/or brighter, this stuff is MAGIC. I spray it on my towel-dried hair after a …Read more
