Polishes - CHANEL - Frenzy

Aug/14/2012

I am a polish fanatic, but this is my first Chanel polish. I purchased it for the unique color — it's a taupey grey that leans just a smidge toward lilac on the nails. (For the record, I'm about a NW30.) I balked a bit at the price ($28 with sales tax!), but I have to say, I am very impressed. The formula is the smoothest polish I've ever put on my nails, and the wear time is …Read more

Fragrances - Chloé - Love, Chloé

I prefer floral orientals, for the record. I received this as a sample from Sephora, and it is absolutely horrendous. It could be worse, but it reminds me of an upper middle aged lady (a woman in her 50s-60s). There's a sharp fruitiness that keeps the powdery floral from going too granny, but this scent is not only not me, but it makes me extremely nauseated. Full on headache material. This …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Unlisted Brand - INM - Out the Door Fast Drying Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/20/2012

I've tried most of the popular quick-dry topcoats — Poshe, Seche Vite, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, you name it. And while Out the Door does not dry as quickly as the top two (Poshe and SV), it does dry fairly quickly, just not within a couple minutes (SV wins that battle). However, the reason why I keep going back to Out the Door is because it DOES NOT SHRINK. Seche Vite is the worst offender in …Read more

I'm an NW30, and I think this nude does flatter my skintone. However, I don't get one or two-coat coverage. It takes 3 coats for this to be opaque, unless I use 2 medium-heavy coats. I also can see brush drag marks on my nails now that they are dry. It's a pretty color, but it's not the a great formula.

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Funny Face

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2012

I'm an NW30, and I typically shy away from blue-based reds or pinks in favor of orange-reds, etc.. That said, Funny Face actually looks fantastic on my skin tone, so other NW30s out there, this might look good on you too! I know some reviews say that there's a hint of blue duochrome, but I don't see that on me at all. It's very much a true fuschia. It is more pink than purple …Read more

Eyeliner - Sephora Collection - Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner

Jan/12/2012

This is my HG eyeliner! Eyeliners smudge like crazy on my eyes...not so much on my upper lid (except for the corners), but I often look like a raccoon on my lower lid. I've tried Revlon Colorstay, Urban Decay 24/7, Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner, a bunch of different waterproof pencil and liquid liners. NOTHING stays on me. Liquid lines flake off my lids, pencil liners smudge or fade. But this …Read more

I love this polish. It's a bright red with orange undertones. It goes on very smoothly, spreads easily, and delivers thin coats, and I'm not the best at polishing my own nails! But I have no problems controlling this polish. And even though I don't often wear a base coat, this polish LASTS a long time on me. I haven't had the chipping problems other reviewers have had, and I …Read more

Shampoo - John Frieda - Full repair shampoo

Oct/20/2011

I'm not sure if it's the lack of B-vitamin, dryness, or what, my hair just tends to fall out a lot. Whenever I shampoo and condition, a good deal of hair comes out in my hands. But just in using this Full Repair shampoo and conditioner, even after just 3 times, I could tell that my hair was no longer falling out in such mass quantities. I get a couple of hairs now instead of close to a …Read more

Moisturizers - L'Oreal Paris - Youth Code Day/Night Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/19/2011

Let me first say that I am probably not the typical demographic when it comes to people who purchase such creams. I'm 23, have good skin, and don't have many lines at all. That said, I do notice a difference in my skin when I use this cream. I use it at night prior to bed, and when I wake up, my skin looks and feels much more refreshed than if I use a different lotion. After I rub it …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Snow White

Sep/04/2011

Let me preface this by saying: I'm a medium-light Asian, typical yellow undertones but can wear both orange and blue based reds.

I picked up this lipstick while looking for a new mascara at Ulta. I am NOT a lipstick wearer; in fact, I usually don't wear anything on my lips except for lip balm. So, I actually shy away from lip color, especially because I have thicker …
