This *is* a pricey lip balm, that is the only gripe I have.

I finally was able to track down the ingredients list. It's hard to track down because, I think, if anyone knew what exactly was in this, they wouldn't purchase it. I will post the ingredients below.

I am glad I couldn't find the ingredients before purchasing because, despite what looks like an …

True, MAC does not have easy to blend eyeshadows in their classic matte formula. But I don't buy this for the formula. I buy it for the undertone and depth. It is the richest dark red brown that doesn't pull grey or purple on me. And I haven't found a dark brown I like more yet. Not a single one. And at $6... Its very reasonably priced. Staple forever.

Owned this brush twice. I don't entirely know what I was thinking either time I purchased it, and I purged it for the same reason twice. I'm not the best with my money.

Just don't bother. I wouldn't wish this brush on anyone. It is VERY SCRATCHY. And you know what? Twice I read reviews about how uncomfortable this brush is to use and bought it anyway thinking …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara

Great "base" mascara. After I curl my lashes, this does a great job defining and "showing" them and applying a base for the rest of my mascaras to cling to. Historically, I have always used 2-3 mascaras layered together. That's just how I roll. In my opinion, there's no such thing as amazing lashes with one mascara. Stop wasting money trying to find the perfect …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Drunk Elephant - T.L.C. SUKARI BABYFACIAL

I actually received this as a gift, and I wouldn't purchase another for myself.

I feel it's not a bad product - it's just that I had been using the T.L.C. Framboos Night Serum (which I had purchased for myself) and was just blown away by that. I genuinely enjoyed using it and knew it was making a huge difference. I suppose I was already so pleased with that and felt …

It took me a long time to put my finger on what exactly I disliked so much about these shadows and why I wasn't reaching for them as much as my MAC shadows...

I got:
Cherry Cola
Cocoa Bear
Creme Brulee
Peach Smoothie
Cabin Fever
Tan Lines
Americano

First off, let me say that the shipping is a joke. It took forever to get my order - and …

Lip Liners - RIMMEL - Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/14/2017

I would panic if they discontinued this lip pencil in the shade "Innocent". It is the only beige/nude lip pencil on me that isn't too pink, brown, grey, dark or terra cotta (all of which tend to change the shades I prefer to wear on my lips a rather unflattering color!)

I can wear it with almost anything (I only wear sheer pinks and beiges) and the texture and colour …

Created with Sketch.

Aug/27/2017

Yes, it's free - but really annoying that they have specific rules for counters and stores. If you can trade in for lipstick, lipglass or eyeshadow at the free standing stores, you should be able to trade for them at counters. It isn't fair that people who don't live near a store have to trade for lipstick. I don't use lipstick. I use lip glosses and eyeshadow. Really …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/13/2017

Me: Extremely oily scalp, fine hair and lots of it, medium brunette color, straight, but with a tendency to "slightly wave" at the ends.

Short version: This is the best dry shampoo on the market, hands down. Don't make the same mistake I did - trying everything BUT this. This is what I should have started with.

Long version: Sometimes, there really is a reason …

Primer/ Corrector - Giorgio Armani - Master Corrector

Nov/22/2013

I am probably NC10 or lighter and I am able to use the orange shade #2 as a color corrector for my purple circles which are hereditary and caused by blood vessels in the undereye hollows.

A lot of ladies a hair darker than me have said that #2 does not work for them and is too dark. The thing is, you're not supposed to use it alone, and you're DEFINITELY not supposed to apply …
