I'm going to try and make this short but I feel like that's going to be a fail...

PACKAGING: I like the packaging. It looks like an upside down lipstick incased in a clear tube, but it's actually the product in a lipstick shaped hole. It feels sturdy and the cap has a little bit of a secure bump feeling when you've tightened it all the way.

COLORS: My …

This stuff saved me! Let me tell you how before I get into a technical review.
I have been getting my hair dyed since I was 13/14 anywhere from almost black to milky blonde (I wish it was still milky blonde hah!). I started cosmetology school in 2011 and was going to a wedding and got my hair dyed very dark brown only to wake up the next day to swelling on my scalp, itchy blotchy skin and my …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Tough as Taupe

I LOVE this product. I have never purchased any Mac Paint Pots but if they're anything like this I am willing to consider! It is so creamy without being greasy and it glides on my super dry eyelids like a dream! I cannot speak on behalf of oily to combination skin, but my dry skin loves this product. Sometimes very pigmented matte eyeshadows look super cakey and dry if I try to build them …Read more

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Sheer Finish Kabuki Brush

Dec/08/2013

I'm going to make this review short and sweet.

It gives a very sheer finish if you're using it with foundation. As with some duo fiber brushes, there can be streaks that you need to blend with something else (hands, beauty blender) if you're using a liquid or cream foundation. It is comfortable to hold in the hand, and esthetically pleasing with the oblong shape. I did …

Dec/08/2013

Let me just start out saying that I love Ecotools and I have owned many of their brushes and still use them every day! With that being said... I was slightly disappointed by this newer product so here are the deets:

PACKAGING: came in a basic, clear plastic container with a button to open it and if you wanted, you could store your brush inside after opening, but it won't stand up …

Liquid - REVLON - PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup

Dec/02/2013

I'm not sure what Revlon was going with when designing this product considering I own Colorstay and Colorstay Whipped and love them both.

FYI: I have tried various primers (Chafing gel, drugstore brands, Smashbox) and various moisturizers underneath this foundation and given it a GOOD chance over about 6-7 months.

Lawdy, this is a hot mess!
PACKAGING: Let's …

Oh lord help me for buying this stuff!! Ahh!

Here's some background on my hair: I'm not exactly sure how the curl chart works but if I had to do my best, I would say my hair is either a 2c or a 3a or maybe 3b and its super, super dry and freakishly easy to tangle I try to find products to help keep moisture in my hair and hold the frizz down. I've been meaning to buy …

Mascara - Avon - Avon Mega Effects Mascara

My first review! Woop woop.

I am not typically overwhelmed with the quality of Avon products. I feel like for the price of a lot of Avon products, I can get something from a drug store that I like better with more options. This mascara is the exception! I am in love, holy moley. The formula of this mascara is spot on, not too wet and shiny, not too dry and clumpy, it's right in …
