Nails - Unlisted Brand - Kiss Active Oval Full-Cover Nails

This is a review for the product in the title, the full-cover glue on Active Oval nails, not another Kiss product.

I'd never ever used or worn any kind of fake nail before and I tried these on a whim to be extra fancy for a party, thinking probably it would be a disaster but low light would make them passable for one evening. I was 100% shocked at how easy they were to apply, how …

Hair Treatments - L'Oreal Paris - ELVIVE Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm

I liked this. It has a nice creamy texture, doesn't smell strong, and worked well to make my bleached hair feel soft.

It costs about three times as much as 3 Minute Miracle, though, and it's not three times better.

If you really hate the smell of 3 Minute Miracle then this might be a better option for you.

This review is for the TOPCOAT ONLY.

Let me tell you about the first time I used this topcoat. I used one coat over a quick French manicure that consisted of some old beigey white polish for the tip and a coat of some kind of sheer purple shimmer. I can't even remember the brand that is how nondescript they are.

Then I remembered that I had to bleach my roots. I do root …

I love this stuff. My hair is naturally fine and pin-straight and I've bleached the crap out of it. This is the first thing that goes on after I wash (whether it's shampoo, CO or water only). It seems like it's pretty much impossible to overdo -- I have never had it weigh my hair down. It makes the ends of my hair feel strong and smooth. It doesn't smell like anything …Read more

Styling Products - Garnier - FRUCTIS Sleek and Shine - Leave-in Conditioning Cream

So I have naturally very straight fine hair that's been bleached (so it's dry) and I like to wear it in pincurls. This cream doesn't do much for frizz, or to provide slip or shine; I like a silicone based serum for those things. But I really like it as a non-drying curl setting cream.

I apply it to damp hair after I've used Aphogee green tea leave-in spray. It …

October 2016: I re-bought this and I've been having a much easier time with it, not sure why. No migrating into pores, coverage ranges from medium to heavy. I'm so glad someone is making a non-translucent powder pale AND NEUTRAL enough for me.

Original review 1/31/2016
I really wanted to love this (good reviews! light and neutral enough for me! nice texture! luminous …

Primer/ Corrector - L'Oreal Paris - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

Jan/29/2016

Edited: I've found that Skin Food Peach Sake "serum" (primer) plays more nicely with my preferred foundations and since my AHA/BHA regimen has done a lot for my pores, it does the job there as well.

I threw my jar of this stuff into my overnight bag. When I spend the night with my partner once a week I don't really use makeup in the morning, so I slap it on over …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Beauty Tubes

Oct/25/2015

I read through the most helpful reviews before I tried this mascara and I haven't had any problems at all with it. I love it.

I make sure to work quickly (the tube design admittedly doesn't help any with this), one eye at a time, ONE sweep of the white primer. My lashes are long and feathery and not clumpy at all and this stuff does. not. budge. I can nap in it and it still …

I have Barely Branded, Matte Brown (LE) and Nude Pink (LE). I love them. Nude Pink on the lid and some softly blended Matte Brown in the crease is the perfect, simplest "no-makeup" bright, open, eye and I depended on it heavily for a couple quarters of school with early classes. I like Barely Branded for a very bright retro eye with some cat-eye liner and classic red lips.

I …

Oct/25/2015

I use Graftobian Glamaire foundation, which is intended to be airbrushed on, but I find that I get the best possible finish by brushing it on with a flat brush and then using a Beauty Blender. I refuse to buy an expensive foundation brush because I think it's asinine to spend a lot of money on a synthetic, and I don't want to put a natural hair brush through the daily quick-cleaning I …Read more
