Skincare - Face - Pacifica - Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/11/2013

I feel like I need to preface this by saying I love Pacifica in general (Tuscan Blood Orange is the best scent ever), but these just aren't doing it for me. The smell is fine-- it's a light, but not too sweet coconut smell. I like that these are wet enough (I was using the Yes to Blueberries towels before and it was like wiping a dry cloth over my eyes). But other than that …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Olay - Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

I am writing this as someone who has never owned the Clarisonic system.

I really like this brush. I purchased the system that came in the Christmas set, so it came with a full size exfoliating face wash. To me, the bristles are tough enough to feel like they're scrubbing, but they feel soft and gentle on my skin. I actually like the size of this brush, because its easy to get …

Crème - benefit Cosmetics - Some Kind-a Gorgeous Lite

Feb/12/2013

This product is advertised as a "foundation faker" which provides "cake-free coverage". They got one part right-- there's no way this is a real foundation. But it IS cakey.

I purchased this on the recommendation of a friend who loves it. The packaging is cute, and I was excited to try a higher end foundation. This product has been nothing but a …

Aug/15/2011

I will agree with other reviewers who mention this is hard to work with-- some of my nails have just one big crack in the center, while others have multiple little cracks throughout the nail. However, I think the gorgeous purple color of this, and the slight price difference between this and OPI, means I'm happy with this product, even though overall I like OPI shatter better.

I …

Aug/09/2011

I received this product as a free promotion and was really excited to try it. At first, it was fine and I didn't really notice any changes in my skin at all. But, slowly, my forehead started to itch and get little bumps on it. Then, my cheeks and chin turned beet-red and got really hot. The skin in those areas got all dried out and my face was swollen (it still is swollen, and dry …Read more

Jun/23/2011

I have recently started painting my nails again and so when I saw how cheap this was, I decided to give it a try, and bought this in Bubblegum Pink (I was recommended the complete salon manicure in I Pink I Can, but this is much cheaper). The color goes on smoothly and pretty opaque in one coat, but I applied two. I've had it on for 7 days now and the only chipping is around the cuticle …Read more

Eye Shadow - Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Shadow

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2011

In general, I thought these eye shadows were crap. I have 2 of them-- one in Flower Girl and one in Violet Femme. I've tried them both wet and dry. Dry, there is almost no pigmentation and no amount of applying these can make them show up. Wet, there is a lot of fallout and they just don't apply well. The glitter is super chunky, and looks more like flecks of paint that have fallen …Read more

May/18/2011

I've been using this product in conjunction with the lightening spray and the enhancing shampoo for darker blondes (they were out of the shampoo that went with this conditioner). I've used them 4 times and already notice a pretty drastic difference (and other people who didn't know I was trying to lighten my hair noticed too). On top of making my hair look blonder (it's …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow - Last Call

Oct/09/2010

This is a really pretty color that seems to look good with just about every color eye (I think it looks great with my blue eyes but it also looks good with my friend's hazel/brown eyes). sometimes, I like to apply this all over the lid and then blend a deeper purple over it. This looks really pretty, but Last Call is gorgious on its own.

I agree that it's nice the glitter …

This is my go-to eyeshadow trio. I've never tried it wet, but I love the colors dry. For me, it looks pretty natural, but really makes my eyes look amazing. I have two ways that I like to wear it-- one way, I use the purplish color all over the lid, use the dark color as a liner, and champagne-ish color on my browbone. My favorite way to wear this, though, is using the champagne all over …Read more
