Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

Jan/07/2013

I've had this foundation for like 4 months now so obviously a little goes a long way. Really good foundation compared to the ones I've tried in the past (MUFE, Revlon, Maybelline, etc.). I've been looking for a foundation thats full coverage and is matte enough for my oily skin. This foundation has checked off most of what I was looking for, however, I do feel like it doesn't …Read more

I really wanted to like this toner because of its raving reviews on here, but after 2 weeks of using it, I returned it. I've tried so many toner/astringents from Clean and Clear to Neutrogena. I know its bad to keep switching your skin care products, but I wanted to try something new to clear the bumps around my nose and chin and control the shininess/oiliness around my T-zone. I would apply …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara

This mascara is awesome EXCEPT for the fact that my lashes started to fall out once I removed the mascara from my eyelashes. There would be like 2 to 3 fallen lashes every time I removed the product. The mascara doesn't clump and gives great length and volume to your lashes. However, I think this formula might be a bit too strong for my lashes. Though its a great product, its just not for …Read more

I actually like the smell of the cleanser and it does work quite well as a makeup remover. However, after a couple more uses of the cleanser, it too started to make my skin feel tight and began to appear dry and flakey. thank goodness I bought the tiny bottle of it because I would personally not buy this product again seeing that it only worked well the first time.

I love, love, loveeee the Chi flat iron. Its actually the best flat iron that I've used. I only have to iron my hair once and its straight. And it only takes a few seconds for it to heat up, which is very ideal when I'm rushing and I want to straighten my hair real quick. The price is expensive but I was luckily able to purchase it at a very, veryyy low price. Let's just say..its …Read more

I love this eye shadow quad even though it's the only Maybelline quad that I've ever owned. I love how the back of the quad gives you directions on where to apply the eye shadow as well as the different looks you can make. I love the white and dark brown eye shadow because they work really well with my skin tone. I always use the white as my highlight and the dark brown for my outer …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - AMMO Eyeshadow Palette

3.0

Nov/19/2009

This eye shadow palette is great. However, some of the eye shadows (Maui Wowie, Polyster Bride, Grifter, Chopper) are way toooo glittery. I would probably only use them for special occasions if I couldn't find anything else. But the other eye shadows are matte and quite pigmented. For everyday use, I would always use Sin over my lid and Smog on my crease because they're so natural and …Read more
