Polishes - MILANI - Jewel FX Gems

4.0

Mar/23/2012

I just bought this last night. I was looking at a blog for nail art and the blogger had glittered tips using a different dupe for DL's Happy Birthday. Apparently, there's a Wet N Wild dupe, but I couldn't find it at Target, luckily I saw Milani's version and I snagged it. For some reason it took me 15 minutes to open the bottle. I don't know if it was the glitter that …Read more

Eyeliner - Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Liquid Glitter Liner Liquid Metal

4.0

Sep/02/2011

I like this liner. The color looks gray to me, not black. I still like it. I like to do a thicker line, and the brush helps with this. If you mess up with a black liquid eyeliner it's more difficult to clean up IMO, but this VS eyeliner is easy to use, it's not as harsh. I like the price, it's inexpensive. I wear it alone, I haven't tried layering it on top of another liner …Read more

Polishes - OPI - No Room for the Blues

This color is just OK for me. I like that it's bright, but it reminds me too much of the Smurfs. Also, I was trying to open a can that had a plastic wrap and the color on my nails chipped.

I will not repurchase.

Cleansers - Neutrogena - All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2011

These are my favorite makeup remover wipes! I've tried a couple of different brands like Oil of Olay (not wet enough), and Garnier (too scented) without much success.

I wear heavy foundation to cover the hyperpigmentation aka red spots left over from old acne, so I need products that will remove all traces of makeup. I don't want clogged pores. This does the trick BUT I do …

Cleansers - Trader Joe's - Tea Tree Oil soap

5.0

Aug/18/2011

This soap is ah-mazing! I love tea tree oil, some ppl hate the smell. Personally, I like it. I have persistent acne, and this soap helped clear me up.

This soap removes my heavy foundation and smoky eye makeup pretty well, but I still have to use makeup remover wipes afterward to remove all traces of it. I would say it removes 90% of my makeup.

The soap comes in a plastic …

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

4.0

Aug/16/2011

I've used many different liquid foundations ranging from really expensive designer ones to drugstore. Revlon Colorstay is definitely my HG foundation!

I use "Nude" and mix it with "Early Tan" during the Summer when I tan and "Buff" during winter. I have hyperpigmentation from old acne, so I need a heavier formula not a sheer one. I love that this …

Aug/16/2011

I've received this color twice as a gift and both times I wish I'd received a different color. I've tried to like it, but it just never grew on me.

I like to wear dark nail polish, but this one just looks to muddy on me. Maybe I've paired it with the wrong clothing. I wore it once with a neon green dress because I was too lazy to change to color and it did not look …

Treatments (Face) - Acne.org - AHA+ (Glycolic Acid - 10%)

4.0

Aug/16/2011

I use this product religiously! I've been using it for 2 years and I keep going back. I have persistent acne that I've managed to keep under control with BCP and AHA+.

This stuff lasts a really long time; you only need about a dime size amount for each application. I use it an night after I've washed my face.

I find that it does sting depending on whether or …

Eye Shadow - Kat Von D - Metal Orchestra Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/09/2011

I bought this on sale for $24 at Sephora inside the JC Penney. Original price is $34, so I saved some money.

The smoky eye is my staple, so I'm always on the lookout for dark shimmery shades. I love the colors in this palette, but the shimmer does fade as others have pointed out. However, that's not a problem for me, because I use MAC pigment in Vanilla to dust on top of any …

Fragrances - Marc Jacobs - Daisy

Nov/10/2008

I purchased the gift package which included a gold round tote, inside there was a ring in the shape of a daisy and it had a solid perfume when you slid the daisy on the ring, very charming. I absolutely love this scent, it's a light floral as others have said, but I agree that the scent desn't stay very long on your body which is the downside. However, I would still buy it again …Read more
