Just a heads up to those who love this, the light shade is on clearance at CVS for about 3 dollars!
I bought this because it sounded like Mac's Magically Cool Powder from the Venomous Villians Collection- a product that I missed out on.): Right off that bat, I can say that I appreciate the brush that Revlon has put on it. It works well when you're applying this as a foundation …

MAGICAL POWDER. This powder must have been handcrafted by fairies using unicorn horn and crushed diamonds. It blurs my face, making it look airbrushed, it eliminates flaws, hides fine lines, brightens my skin, makes me look glowing- yet matte! IT'S SO AMAZING. I can't stop fan girling over it! I just use the Sigma F80 and stipple over top of my foundation, and I look super awesome. The …Read more

The name of this powder was music to my ears. When I first heard about it I was hoping it would be a magical powder created by the make up fairies to make everybody look beautiful. The name implies that you're matte and glowing at the same time- SOUNDS SO AMAZING.In reality it should be called "The Really Matte Powder That Doesn't Make You Glow, But Instead Makes You Sparkle" …Read more

After switching from glasses to contacts my eyes changed and became super watery. I found that my normal eyeliner, the Urban Decay 24-7 pencil, didn't hold up to the waterline challenge. After a few hours, the eyeliner would migrate to underneath my eyelash line on my outer corners giving me some weird, cat eye raccoon eye. lol. I began to test all my black liner in my stash and this one …Read more

Lip Gloss - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss

Dec/02/2012

After reading the rave reviews on these lip glosses I absolutely had to have them. I did some magical coupon improv and got 2 for $5. I bought Luminous Latte, which is a shimmery, midtone nude, and I also got Electric Shock, which is a bright pink with no shimmers. While these do have a creamy, non sticky texture and come in beautiful colors, the big turn off for me is the smell and taste. I keep …Read more

While everybody in the world complains about their sparse brows, I'm the exact opposite. Blessed with thick, dark and unruly eyebrows, I require some product to maintain and groom them- or else I look like Oscar the Grouch. While the unruliness of the hairs is definitely a problem, the biggest irritation with my brows are the bald spots... yep, I have a tiny patch in each eyebrow where the …Read more

The quality in this palette is absolutely outstanding! All 3 colors are soft, richly pigmented, and long lasting. The taupe is some magical color that instantly makes anyone look better. Personally, I stay away from any color that's gray based because they make me look like death... lol. Not the case with this one! The taupe contrasts with my eyes and hair color and makes them look brighter! …Read more

While I love WNW shadows I cannot recommend this palette as almost every single shade exists in other palettes, the same problem I had with the Shimmer the Night Away palette.

The left browbone shade is a shimmery pale yellow. It's also in the Comfort Zone Palette (8 pan), and Vanity (6 pan).
The left eyelid shade is a midtone shimmery gold. I don't believe that this is …

I am completely obsessed with Wet n' Wild eyeshadows. I find that they're buttery, long lasting and pigmented. Most shades are unique and they come in a variety of finishes. After seeing the promos for this palette I had to have it. While I'm not big on silvers and black, I absolutely love Wet n' Wilds purples! After hunting it down and finally finding it... I was so …Read more

I've always been a really big fan of gel eyeliners and cream eyeshadows as they have so many uses! I love to use them under corresponding eyeshadow shades for a little bit of extra pigmentation and staying power. After seeing the awesome range of shades from ELF, I thought they'd be perfect for my uses... but they're not!): I find the texture to be dry and hard, even when brand …Read more
