Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Smoky ShadowBlast

1.0

Feb/22/2010

Holy. Crap.
This has got to be the worst purchase I have ever made. It's so horrible... I am just baffled.
It's greasy, goes on unevenly leaving patches of nothing then a patch of greasy colour. The colour is weak. Barely shows up. But if you go over the same spot twice, it removes everything. It doesn't blend at all. I would liken the result to that of a football player …

Top/Base Coats - Essie - Matte About You

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2009

Love it!

I really wanted to test out the matte look for my nails, but the colours I had looked at (at Sephora, OPI brand for Sephora) were limited and I wasn't totally sold.

Then I saw Essie's Matte About You.
Brilliant!
I love that it is a clear top-coat that makes ANY polish appear matte. You can experiment with all your colours to see what looks you …

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 6 for Combination/Oily Skin

4.0

Dec/31/2009

I have been on a quest to find a long lasting liquid medium-full coverage foundation that worked with my skin for ages.
I FOUND IT!

This stuff is great.
There is a good range of colours, so finding one that works with your skin tone isn't hard. I think this is the closest match I have ever found, even compared to MAC and higher end brands. Usually they are either to …

Palettes - Cargo Cosmetics - Hands of Hope Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/28/2009

Wow! I am totally blown away by this palette!

They are full size shadows, so it's fantastic value for your money.

My only complaint would be that the book/palette it comes in is rather huge and doesn't seal closed. That makes it a little hard to take with you on a trip etc, but is great for home use.

The colours are stunning. I can see myself using all …

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Outlast All-Day Lipcolor

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2009

Hated it!
It went on well, but felt a tad gritty on my lips. It dried smooth-ish, but immediatly my lips felt like all the moisture had been sucked out of them. Even with the 'moisturizing' gloss like stuff. My lips ended up sore and flaking no matter how much of that top coat stuff I put in. It felt waxy, like it was hovering above my lips, rather than penetrating them with …

Fragrances - Dior - Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2009

This stuff is gorgeous.
It IS very strong... so I think a walking-into-an-air-spritz of it is all anyone would need.
You get used to it very fast, so don't be tricked into thinking it fades and that you need to reapply. Rest assured it IS there... it is just nice, subtle and mellow.
It's the kind of fragrance that (when worn properly) you have to lean in to smell. The …

Fragrances - Burberry - Brit

4.0

Dec/22/2009

A really nice scent!
Not over powering (if you spritz into the air and walk into the mist, rather than spraying it directly on the skin).
It's a very warm scent that is blended very well. Nothing stands out too much... it all works together. Great scent for the winter months.
I love how well it stays. I find I don't have to put it on often, as the scent seems to cling to …

Fragrances - CHANEL - No.5 Parfum

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2009

Dear G*d. Please don't wear this stuff.
It is an assault on the senses.
All of them. When people wear this stuff I can smell it, taste it and my eyes water. I often wonder if it is stinging my eyes, or if I am crying because so many people choose to wear this stuff!
It is VERY chemically smelling to me, almost like really badly made soap/detergent. It has a powdery overtone …

Self Tanners - Jergens - Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2009

Aw... so close, but not quite as good as I had hoped.

It went on ok, not horribly streaky.
The smell was ok.

It says to keep 'building' a tan with it.
After about 3 days of use, I ended up looking like a deranged Oompah-Loompah.
My arms and legs were orange, but in the crease of my arm, and by my wrists and the side of my legs (?!) I was totally …

Lip Gloss - DuWop - Lip Venom

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2009

I used to love this stuff, thought it worked like a charm.
And it DOES work. It tingles, it plumps.
However, after trying Smashbox O-Plump Gloss, I am no longer a big fan of DupWop Lip Venom (O-Plump works much, much better).

For the price, it is good and will do the trick.

I enjoy the taste/smell.

The packaging is nice and I like the applicator and the …
