Skincare - Face - Coastal Scents - African Black Soap

5.0

Apr/19/2014

This is a review for the Coastal Scents African Black Soap in the liquid form. It comes in a big bottle with a flip lid, and is absolutely paraben free. My hair is very dry, but my scalp gets greasy very quickly. I often find my hair looking very stringy near the roots area the day after a shampoo. Because my hair is so dry, I don't like to shampoo frequently, but I have to because of my …Read more

Fragrances - Laura Mercier - Eau de Lune

Mar/24/2012

This is more of a cautionary tip than a review. If you are going to buy this from an online store, please buy it directly from Laura Mercier or one of the bigger department stores. After smelling a sample of this while browsing at a Nordstrom's counter and loving its soft feminine scent, I ended up not buying a bottle since it is quite pricey for a pretty basic fragrance. When I saw it on …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

I bought mine in "Bad to the Bronze" (see first two photos) at WalMart Canada for $7 CAD. The product is housed in a nice, heavy glass jar, giving it an "expensive" feel. "Bad to the Bronze" has a coppery golden sheen in the jar, but once on the lids, the coppery tones are not as apparent unless the coverage is built up. The formula is very creamy and easy to …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Red Shatter

Jun/01/2011

Oh, Lordy...what a goopey mess this is! I really like the red color, but it is so hard to work with! It turns into a globby, gelatinous mess (kind of reminds me of a fresh blood clot) by the time you have done three nails . You then have to add a bit of thinner, shake it up quite a bit, and do another three nails before repeating the process again. It is way too labor intensive. I have to …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Do You Think I'm Tex-y?

4.0

May/09/2011

This color looks great with my olive skin tone, (see 2nd photo above) and it doesn't give me that dreaded lobster hands look. The color in the bottle is darker than it will appear on the nails. It is a very sheer color, but you can definitely get full coverage after 3 coats. The consistency of the polish is on the thin side as it is a jelly, but I much prefer that as it allows me to apply …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - Dakota

This a beautiful red creme that applies like a dream. The color is a true deep, blood red in sunlight, but when seen indoors, it appears to be a deep, vampy burgundy red. It is the perfect winter's color with my pale hands. The color is opaque in one coat, but I applied two to get a true depth to the color.

Cleansers - KOSE - Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil

Aug/19/2010

I have both the MAC and the Shu Uemura cleansing oils, with the MAC not working that great, and the Shu being quite expensive. This one from Softymo works great and is dirt cheap. I got the full sized bottle for approximately $6USD. One pump is enough to thoroughly cover my face, add a bit of water to emulsify it, and it rinses cleanly away. I useit to clean my eye makeup off also, and not …Read more

Polishes - NYC New York Color - Quick Dry Nail Polish - Uptown 242

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/29/2010

This is a super fast drying, good coverage nail polish. The color is a bright, cool pink. I don't agree with the previous poster that it is a cheap looking pink. It's a great color for summer and goes well with fair or dark skin. One coat is enough to get an opaque coverage of the nails, but I do two coats and a top coat. The color has lasted almost a week, with hardly any …Read more

Eye Shadow - Annabelle - Duo eyeshadow in Kir Royale

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2010

This is a duo eyeshadow with one side being a shimmery pale, silvery lilac and the other side a darker shade of silvery, purple plum. The color payoff is very minimal if used alone, but over a primer such as UDPP, you can create a bit more depth. The best color payoff occurs when the eyeshadows are used wet. The shimmer on the paler shade is very subtle, but definitely brightens the eye area. …Read more

Eye Primer - Fyrinnae - Pixie Epoxy

This is an excellent product if you want your loose (or even pressed) eyeshadows to be more vibrant, and show their glitter, and to minimize fallout. You only need a minute dot on each eyelid and tap the product all over your lid. Wait about 30 secs, so that it's still tacky and then pat your e/s on top. I don't use this over any sort of an eye primer or base, and my e/s stays crease …Read more
