Lips - Too Faced - Melted Latex Liquefied Lipstick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I found this at TJ Maxx for $4. I figured I would give it a shot.

The color is highly tinted and shiny, just like latex. It is unscented and the container is cute and classy-looking. As for how long it holds out--I drink coffee/water and snack on stuff, and my lips held color for 3 hours (minus the glossiness), so it's very good for liquid lipstick. The color I got, Hot Mess …

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Total Control Drop Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/14/2018

I have combination/oily skin which needs medium coverage--I've found heavy coverage foundation gets cakey after time. I bought this foundation based on recommendations. After having used up an entire bottle, I like it enough to buy a second bottle.

Positives: I like the wide range of colors available, especially given that it's not a high-end department store brand. The …

Makeup Brushes - Makeup Geek - Bent Liner Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/25/2017

I needed a new eyeliner brush (I use gel eyeliners) because the one I had finally lost too many bristles to do the job. I tried the slanted eyeliner brush but that did not work for me. I like thin lines around my eyelids, and slanted brush was too thick for that. Another brush I tried was not slanted, but the bristle was too hard and did not bend enough to create a smooth line.

I …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Vicky Tiel "Sirene"

Jul/16/2015

I bought this unsniffed (EDP) based on reviews. Admittedly the beautiful bottle didn't hurt. And I've never seen a perfume colored orchid pink either (why is that? Most perfumes are yellow-ish).

Usually I am not big on floral scents, especially roses--but I really like this one. It's strong at first, but it settles down to sweet rose--and it lasts for hours--I …

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Stippling Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2015

Before buying this brush, I've never used a brush or sponge to apply foundation--was strictly fingertips only. But after reading reviews of this stippling brush, I went to Ulta and bought one for $9.99 (which is a reasonable price).

I've now used this brush daily for a month (I wash it after use and let it air dry), and I _love_ it. This brush makes the liquid foundation …

Lipstick - Nuance by Salma Hayek - Passion Pink

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2015

This is my second lipstick purchase from Nuance line (the first one was My Favorite). The Passion PInk has more pigment than My Favorite (which was more of a lip gloss), and lasts longer before needing to reapply. The color is a hot orchid pink; it goes on creamy (I would not call it matte), with no shimmer and no scent. The packaging is nice and feels solid, not cheap.

As far as …

Lipstick - Nuance by Salma Hayek - Lipstick in My Favorite

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/25/2015

First off--the good news. The color is beautiful--it's nude with a bit of dusty pink added, which is a flattering neutral color for anyone. It has no noticeable perfume and it goes on smoothly. The case is glossy black and doesn't feel "cheap".

However, the downside is that the color is very sheer, and goes on more like a lip gloss than a proper lipstick. If …

Foundations - Japonesque - Luminous Foundation (All shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2014

I have been using tinted moisturizer and stick foundation for a while, and what with change of seasons I was looking for an actual liquid foundation. I saw this at Ulta store, and it looked good and the price ($36) wasn't too high, so I purchased it.

First off--I love the packaging. I like the pump which is hygienic and puts out just enough for single use. It is water-based …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Laura Biagiotti - Roma

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2014

As a perfume junkie with 80+ bottles of perfume, I rarely buy a second bottle of the same perfume--except Roma. I'm on my 3rd bottle (with a 4th in storage--Roma has been discontinued--oh why oh why?). As for the scent--on me I smell spicy powdery with hint of orange. I've smelled nothing quite like it, so I guess when the 4th bottle gets used up...:-(

Hair Color - John Frieda - Precision Foam Colour 4N Dark Natural Brown

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2013

I bought 2 packs of the John Frieda Precision Foam color, one in Dark Natural Brown, and the other in Chocolate Brown (it was on sale--otherwise at $13, this is pricey for drug store hair color). This review covers both products.

I used the Dark Natural Brown first, and was impressed by the quality of the packaging and quantity (probably a good thing for people with long hair). The …
