When I tested this product at Sephora, it seemed to have a thicker consistency. The texture was soft and felt like it would be a good purchase for someone like me with combo skin. When I used the product the next morning, the pump sprayed product all over the place. I had some of this stuff on my shirt, my bathroom mirror, even the light fixtures. I thought maybe I was using it wrong, so I shook …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bite Beauty - Agave Lip Mask - Smashed

This is a very thick formula, but it feels great on because it's so moisturizing. It also has a great taste, like a faint vanilla. It looks like a gloss-it's a sheer red that works well with my skin and seems to last for hours. The price is a little much and the top always falls off, but other than that it's a great product.

I was skeptical of this at first but it really impressed me. I don't know how, but it really does seem to help my makeup apply better and has a better finish than just using fingers or a foundation brush. I use Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Foundation, which is really high coverage. The BB helps it look better and I can control the finish better. I've been using mine for about six months …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Fiji

This polish looks bubble gum pink on my nails. I couldn't get a clean line around my cuticles, and it just looked sloppy on my hands after 2-3 coats. The color is pretty, but it just didn't look right on my skin tone I guess. Unable to return this, I decided this would be a strict for my toes color. I use about 3 coats and it lasts for a few weeks and doesn't chip. It looks better …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pigment in Silver Fog

This is a very bright metallic grey. I have blue eyes and light-medium skin and can never find a grey that doesn't seem to turn a bluish hue on me, until I tried this. I use it in the inner corner of my eye and pair it with a brown or taupe eye shadow and it looks very pretty and lasts a long time.

This is a champagne beige with fine sparkle. It goes on really smooth washes the eyelid in a very subdued way. It looks very shimmery in the bottle, but there is really not a lot of color payoff-not that that is necessarily bad, it's just is a very neutral color. I knew this going in because I read some reviews, but if you are looking for a more obvious beige/gold color payoff, I would go …Read more

Loose Powders - NYX Professional Makeup - HD Studio Finishing Powder

Jan/12/2015

This like other reviewers have said is a dupe for MUFE's HD powder, much like the Coastal Scents silica spheres. Good amount of product for the price. It will keep your skin matte, with minimal touch-ups. I have oily skin and this really helps keep my makeup in place. The only thing to be mindful of is it *can* leave a slight white cast. At least on me, anyway- but I tend to apply with a …Read more

Skincare - Face - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - 50% Glycolic Peel

Jan/12/2015

In the past I have used the 40% Glycolic peel and had great results. For reasons I can't remember, I never repurchased, but used the Mandelic and the Radiance Peel and didn't really have noticeable results. I decided to take a chance to try the 50% strength and I'm glad I did. My otherwise dull skin has a glow after I use this, and it was pretty cheap for a sample size kit. I leave …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara

This mascara was a bit disappointing. While the color is good- a true black, the application was annoying and messy. I prefer a dramatic look, but this clumps and doesn't apply evenly. At first I chalked it up to being a new formula, thinking it would thicken a bit and be easier to work with. Even after curling my lashes and wiping the wand with a tissue, it seems like it coats a few lashes …Read more

Eyes - NYX Professional Makeup - Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil - Black Bean

I've been using this to line the inside of my eyelid. I like the fact that it is a true dark black and the formula is really soft and buttery for the eye area. I tried to use this as a eyeliner and it didn't seem to work as well. It was smudging a lot and went on sheer. Will continue to use as a tightlining product.
