Dec/10/2014

I've heard good things about it for a while and gave it a go.

My skin is combination, leaning to very oily. I have dark circles and occasional blemishes but leave marks for months.

This foundation is VERY pigmented. Little really goes a long way. You have to work a little faster with it when blending out. But once it's on - IT'S ON.

The ultimate …

If you like Victoria's Secret Bombshell, you will like this one. Almost identical, but a bit lighter. Fresh, feminine, nostalgic. look out for it at Marshall's- I got mine there 2 fl. Oz. edt for $20. Staying power isn't excellent, but not bad for edt.

THIS is working so wonderfuly for me, that I am irrationaly afraid that I will JINX it with this glowing review.

My nails are brittle, forever splitting, forever snagging, and nailpolish lasts on me for less than a day. No matter what. IT TAKES HOURS to chip and start looking horrible.

I AM ON DAY THREE. my polish looks great, and the only wear is visible at the very tips …

this is $36 from Sephora. all tokyo milk dark perfumes come in one size (1.6 oz), unless you get the rollerball (

the bottle is just a black,rectangular, with typical tokyo milk designs and lettering. quite simple and pretty

the ingridients are supposed to be natural ones, nothing that you can not pronounce. if you look at the box, each one lists what is in the perfume …

I was looking for a very opaque, dark, LASTING lip color for fall. I cannot wear regular lipsticks because I'm too messy, I'm always eating/drinking/talking and it becomes a mess.

I've been addicted to the revlon just bitten lip balm stains (longest product name ever...) because of how wonderfully they STAIN the skin on my lips and last forever, but I needed something …

Got this at pharmacy for $2.99

I was not expecting much, but was completely surpirsed!

I used liquid liner from UD for a long time, and althought it gives a beautiful finish, it's super pigmented and opaque in color, and the staying power is superb, it was taking a lot of time and effort to apply it with the re-dipping, wiping off lashes because the liquid always ended …

I bought these for $7.99 (not on sale, no coupon) at Ride Aid (NYC)

They come in a nail polish shaped container. You can see the nails clearly through the packaging, which is a relief when trying to pick out a design. I chose the french just because there weren't many to choose from at my pharmacy, and this was the least offensive to me.
It comes in two variations aside from …

I bought this due to all the raves here on MUA.

It was hard to select a matching shade in store, as pharmacies always have an incompetent lighting, and the glass jar is so thick, that it's hard to fully compare the shades.

I still made a good match somehow, and right away replaced my original colorstay with this.

Now let me complain.
The container is …

I got the mini version of this as a sephora birthday gift.

the brush is very nice. I love the rounded tip that I can use for my outer and inner corners.

however, this clumps my lashes. it IS very wet, which I usually don't have a problem with, but it coats my lashes to a point where it's just too heavy. Once it dries, my lashes become so hard, I imagine I could …

My hair has been FRIED. and I do mean that in every sense of the word. I have been bleaching it platinum blonde for years, elbow lenght, and made the big mistake of putting a hot curling iron to it for about 2 months. inches have fallen off, the rest became extremely dry.

I've used everything in the drugstore without any significant results.

This however has instantly …
