So long, HG bodywash. I sadly just found out from Tom's that they had discontinued this product due to "lack of customer support." =(

Oct/16/2010

For reference: I have small-ish, very deep set eyes. I usually like more dramatic mascaras, but in this case I wanted an every-day, natural type of mascara. I bought this in the color "001 Black" without checking MUA first (a mistake).

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2009

EDIT (10-19-10): Two of my pencils' caps have huge cracks even though they were treated very gently, so I've adjusted the packaging score from 4 to 2.


For reference, I am around MAC NC35, but I can be more yellow or olive toned than that depending on the weather, etc. I have shadowed, deep set eyes and hereditary dark circles.

Eye Makeup Remover - Almay - Oil-free eye makeup remover liquid

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/13/2008

<p>I wish I had read the reviews for this product here before I bought this on the fly. I honestly wanted to like this, considering that my eyes are very, very sensitive, and that Almay markets its products as gentle, and ideal for people with extremely sensitive skin. Well, score one for the marketers at Almay because I sure was duped into buying this product. All this did was burn my …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Urban Decay - Wonder Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/03/2008

I bought this brush over 4 years ago, and it has really stood the test of time. This was actually the first higher end brush that I ever bought, and let me say, that I love it today more than ever. It is ideal for fine, detailed work. At first glance, the brush might not seem worth its price-tag (15 USD), but it is, and you’ll most likely realize why soon after you begin to use …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Mega Eyes Trio - Egyptian Sands [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/29/2008

<b>DESCRIPTION:</b>
Egyptian Sands is a trio of neutrals. When you look at the palette there is one pale creamy ivory shade (light tone), a light rose-copper shade (mid tone), and a taupe-y brown shade (it’s dark compared to the other two colors, but on its own, it’s not so dramatic). The colors are neutral, but they do appear to be on the slightly warmer side of the spectrum …

Polishes - MILANI - Pretty in Porcelain

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/23/2007

<b>Description:</b> Pretty in Porcelain is a very classic shade. It is a neutral, iridescent, pale pink shade with hints of gold. You could say it's a pale rosy-coppery color.



<p><b>Pros:</b> The polish is long wearing (I had it on my toes for two weeks without topcoat or basecoat and it barely chipped off), and application is smooth and …
