Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Carbon Black

This mascara adds lush volume-and then flaked repeatedly during the day under my eyes. I kept wiping the flakes off and removing my foundation/under eye concealer along with it. The mascara is extremely black and gives thick lashes-but the flakiness is not worth it to me. Too bad-I liked the look of my lashes while it was actually on.

Sexy orange red. So classic, retro, and an iconic MAC shade. It's a best seller for a good reason-it's a bright, orange-red almost bright coral shade that perks up your complexion and gives you a burst of color. This is a great going out shade-and the finish lasts through dinner, drinks, and kissing. I apply it straight from the tube, but have also used a red lipliner to deeper the …Read more

Moisturizers - Olay - Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid - Original

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/30/2017

A very simple no frills moisturizer that is an oil in water base. It has mineral oil, petroleum, and other occlusives in a non-greasy fluid base. It's not going to cause miracles-there are no magic retinoids, peptides, antioxidants, or acids-basically there are no active ingredients that can actually combat aging other than keeping your skin hydrated which reduces the look of wrinkles. …Read more

After much searching for the perfect red lipstick-i finally found "True Red" and "Radiant Red" by Jordan Matte lipsticks. These two colors cost me a whopping $1.99 each in Maui. I discovered it on my honeymoon while realizing I forgot to bring a bright lip color, and went to the local drug store and thought that I should just give it a shot. Wow! The color "True …Read more

Shampoo - PANTENE - Shampoo and Conditioner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/23/2017

It's riddled with sulfates which are stripping agents that strip the color and moisture from your hair. Pantene does animal testing and is not cruelty free. Then they use the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner by combining a bunch of sulfates and parabens with dimethicone-which is a form of silicone-that literally coats the hair and gives it the impression of soft, shiny hair-but it's …Read more

I absolutely love this lipstick. It is in the purple/plum colored family and reminds me of the color of a purplish orchid flower. It's beautiful on, but intimidatingly bright in the tube. Don't let the color in the tube fool you-it's highly wearable for a number of skin tones. I'm an NC30-NC35-with a medium beige undertone and it just adds a beautiful purple highlight to …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Kohl Eyeliner - Smolder

Sep/23/2017

The color is phenomenal for doing a smokey eye, but it smears like crazy. On one hand-the soft, bendable texture of this pencil lends itself to an easier smokey eye-you just line your water line and around the eye and smudge-then bam! Instant, sexy "smolder"ing smokey eye. Beautiful. The problem is the longevity and wear-it will not only smudge for a sexy haze around the eyes-it will …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Fire & Ice

5.0

Sep/22/2017

Color: orange-red (not a brick red or a pure red-but a vintage, classic lipstick that blends orange and red tones). This color has been around for decades and is an iconic Revlon shade.
Finish: cream finish-moisturizing, shiny but not as shiny as a gloss, very soft on the lips.
Advertising history-Fire and Ice was marketed as a lipstick for understated sexiness.
Undertones-warm …

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Shara Shara Honey Bomb All In One Ampoule

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2017

Honey is a natural humectant that draws water and moisture to the skin. I have had my honey bomb for 3 months now-and have hardly made a dent in his huge bottle. The ampoule has given my skin an elasticity, firmness, and battled any dry skin patches without making my skin greasy. I apply a very thin layer on top of my other thinner layers of Korean skin care. I double cleanse with a cleansing …Read more
