Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Double Duty Base & Top Coat

I love this as a base and top coat. I've tried many top coats, including Seche Vite, and my nails always chip within a day. I've now had 4 days without chips with this product and still going strong. It doesn't look as smooth and shiny as a top coat like Seche Vite, but the long wear is far more worth it to me.

I was so grateful that I bought this product. It covered my post-acne red marks well without looking cakey, and although I wouldn't say that it lasted 24 hours, it definitely lasted through the day without needing to touch up. This held true even when I was walking about in a very humid climate when I was travelling, and I don't find it to be drying at home (I live in a very dry …Read more

I really wanted to like this product... I really did! I am usually NC20, but got NC15 in this foundation. Was actually a really good color for me, and I really appreciated that aspect. However, it does not hide my red post-acne marks (not scars, just red marks) at all. I have small pores and wouldn't consider myself to really have wrinkles yet, but this seemed to settle into everything and I …Read more

I'm sorry to say, but I'm very disappointed in this product (just bought).. I love the way it applies and it feels beautiful to put on.. But midway through the day yesterday I peeked in the mirror and noticed it was basically melting off my face really patchily. Horrible! I work indoors at a comfortable temperature, so it wasn't like I was sweating or anything. This has never …Read more

I was really unsure about the color of this pencil when it was recommended to me, but I am so glad I bought it. Love it. It is awesome all over the lip with a clear or pinky gloss. It is also great under a red lipstick like MAC Prolong with some gloss over top, or obviously under a more fuschia lipstick. Love it! One of my favorite pencils. Great pigmentation and staying power.

I love this lip pencil. It is a beautiful coral shade that is nice all over the lip with a clear or pinky gloss, under coral or pink-coral lipsticks (I use under MAC Impassioned), or even under an orange-red lipstick such as MAC Lady Danger to bring out more of the orange tone. I've also worn it under MAC Good to Go to tone down the orange a bit. My skin is quite pale and I often don't …Read more

I really like this lipliner. I wear it all over the lip with a clear or pinky gloss, and under some pinky-red lipsticks. It even looks really cool if you wear it all over the lip under a darker berry/purple lipstick like MAC Hang Up or Rebel. Good pigmentation and staying power.

This is the first and only BB creme that I tried. Since I tend to break out easily with foundations, I asked to try a sample first. When that went well, I bought the tube (in 'Light'). It was a great summer foundation. Made my skin look beautiful, glowy, and flawless... and I did get a few compliments when I wore it! Very good coverage for being more of a tinted moisturizer than a …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Frost - Paradisco

If you want something that is more pigmented, I would go with expensive pink. If you want something that is more sheer and that you can build a bit, I would get Paradisco. I wanted something more subtle that I could blend with some neutrals for a more professional setting, so I got Paradisco. I used it in the crease with painterly and rice paper on the lid and highlight. I think I would use it …Read more

I have not bought or worn foundation for several years, but I had to go to an event recently where I would be photographed and spent a lot of time researching a good foundation. I decided to try this one, and was matched with Rose Clair 12. So far I really like this foundation. It seems to blend really easily and seamlessly with my skin (I would say I'm between an NC15 and NC20) and looks …Read more
