Lip Liners - MILANI - Anti-Feathering Lip Liner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/12/2014

Yay! Something affordable that - what do you know - actually prevents feathering! I'm a cynical person and thought, "oh what the hell, why not give it a try" when I bought this. I have the worst problems with the majority of my lipstick and lipgloss feathering and looking terrible within 30 minutes or so. This definitely extends the wear and helps out a lot. I love that it's …Read more

Eye Shadow - Fyrinnae - Witchy Woodland Creatures

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/11/2014

I love this eyeshadow (and the name!); it's one of my favorites. I own a lot of Fyrinnae minis and I think this is one of their best. It's versatile in that it's a neutral brownish taupe shade that can be easily dressed up or down - it has a lot of shimmer to it to keep things interesting. It can be paired with many other colors, but I think it definitely holds its own. One of my …Read more

Eyeliner - wet n wild - H2O Proof Liquid Eyeliner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2014

Awful! Spoiler alert: this brush is HARD. Don't poke yourself in the eye! Couldn't get a smooth line at all. There was no gliding on the eyelid, just dragging. And don't mess up, because it's not coming off! If you want waterproof, you've got it. I had a hell of a time even trying to remove it with avocado oil (that or jojoba oil are my "makeup removers".) Wet …Read more

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2014

Yeah, I know everyone seems to rave about this... but I think I'm going to find myself reaching for this a lot. It's low maintenance, really pretty and flattering, and - I'm pretty pale, so I'm speaking from my experience - it's nice if you want a dash of plum-like color to brighten up your face. I find the formula extremely comfortable to wear; it's like wearing lip …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Snow White

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/03/2014

Finally! This - THIS - is the red I've been looking for. Much as the name Snow White would suggest, I'd consider this the perfect red for very fair skin and dark hair. (I'm sure almost anyone could pull this color off though.) A lot of standard reds either end up looking fairly bright or even orange-y on me, but this one pulls a bit darker, more ruby, leaning toward vamp territory …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2014

Haus of Gloi is a fairly recent indie brand I've tried out, but I already know that I love their formulas and scents. I got their pumpkin butter to use as mainly for my legs - my legs tend to get very dry and itchy, especially overnight - and the consistency is perfect. It's a bit heaver than lotion, but nowhere near as thick and frosting-like as some body butters can get. The company …Read more

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Moon Valley Organics - Lip Treat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2013

I've used a lot of lip balms, which comes with the territory of having chronically dry lips and skin. This has to be one of my favorites, if not the favorite. It used to come in a tin, but now it's in a more convenient tube packaging, and Moon Valley Organics now calls it their "herbal lip balm". It has a melty consistency and glides on smoothly, and a creamy lemon vanilla …Read more

Eye Shadow - Fyrinnae - Lucky Charmed Loose Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/30/2013

In short, Lucky Charmed is stunning. It's a highly pigmented antique gold with a hint of bright green to it. It looks foiled over a base and pairs nicely with a dark green on the outer crease of the eyelid. (I've used Fyrinnae's Dressed to Kill with it - just gorgeous!) This is definitely worth trying out. Best of all, samples their eyeshadows are so affordable and quality that you …Read more

Eye Shadow - Fyrinnae - Arcane Magic: Velvet Vampire

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2013

Wow, holy grail eyeshadow here! Photos don't really seem to do it justice. It's an incredibly sparkly chameleon, flashing burgundy, gold, and pink shimmer. I swear I even see a shimmery orange tint in it sometimes (my eyes are a golden/orange-y shade of brown, so maybe it's just pulling that way on me). But honestly, I could see Velvet Vampire working with any eye color and skin …Read more

Polishes - Essie - First Timer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2013

Another excellent light green from Essie. Really fun for spring, summer, and fans of the color green. It's more whited out than Essie's Mojito Madness, and it manages to be a cool pastel that's soft, but bright at the same time. The formula's pretty good and I find it to be opaque in two coats. The only problem I've had is that I'm unable to use a clear coat over it …Read more
