Mascara - Trish McEvoy - High Volume Mascara

It's very easy to remove with no eye irritation. Because the removal is so easy, I reach for it even on days that I don't feel like wearing any makeup - which is often.

When I first got this mascara I didn't think I liked it because I wanted a special occasion mascara with lots of volume. This one looks very subtle with one coat, and my first few attempts to do …

Liquid - Dior - Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation

5.0

Jun/24/2016

I'm 35 and I've never worn foundation before, mostly because I want my skin to look uncoated. I assumed foundation would look too coated for me. But I wanted to try wearing a foundation in my sister's wedding. I have large pores on my cheeks and a shiny t-zone than I want to de-emphasize in bridesmaid/wedding photos.

I admit I didn't look very hard before I chose …

Top/Base Coats - ZOYA - Anchor

Anchor made my polish last very long - but it also took tiny pieces of my nail surface with it when I removed it! I was left with tiny craters all over my nails that took months to grow out. Other base coats I've tried don't do the same thing so I'm pretty sure that wasn't a problem with my removal process.

Top/Base Coats - ZOYA - Armor topcoat/basecoat

Two things I love about this top coat:
- It has a noticeable "leveling" effect on the polish underneath it. So for example I can put it on top of a polish that looks slightly streaky, and this top coat will somehow smooth out the streaks. That's really useful for sheer pinks that you want to stay sheer - when you can't fix streaks by adding another coat of color. I …

Polishes - ZOYA - Nail Polish in Sari

I love this polish. It's a very close dupe of OPI Bubble Bath. Very classic sheer. It's also self-leveling, which is a must since it's sheer.

What I don't love is Zoya's narrow, square-tipped brush. I poured this into an empty Dior top coat bottle so I could use a wide, flat, rounded brush.

I have a light/medium skin tone with warm peach undertones, and in the summer when I'm slightly tanned, this polish is exactly like a metallic version of my skin color. I love it! It makes a very pretty fancy-nude look on me. It photographs well - it has a "glow from within" that shows up very well in photographs from a distance. I think it's my favorite polish. I went through …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Bubble Bath

Feb/19/2016

This is a lovely nude or French manicure color for me. The color looks nude, natural, smooth, healthy, barely pink, not obvious pink. It's self-leveling - no streaks. I had trouble with many sheer pink jellies looking too blue or too lavender on me - this one doesn't. I had trouble with warmer sheer pink jellies looking too yellow on the tips - this one looks white on the tips. It …Read more
