Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Sabbath

Created with Sketch.

May/10/2013

I want to start off by mentioning that I have never purchased a full size UD pencil prior to this. I always got them in sets and/or on sale. I just had to get this because of the color. I saw swatches online and was like "OMG is that a dark navy matte liner?". I died. Then I watched some YT videos raving about this particular color. I went to ULTA and swatched three colors: …Read more

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-In-1 Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2013

I did not want to like this foundation. I try to avoid skincare and cosmetic products that use certain chemicals. I have sensitive skin and care about the potential harmful affects of certain ingredients so I avoided this particular product since it came out despite raves. I primarily got it to use on my very long work days. I sometimes have to work 12+ hours and my makeup no matter how I set …Read more

Eye Shadow - Black Radiance - Eye Appeal Collection Palette - 8026 downtown browns

Feb/22/2013

I heard about this palette from Nouveau Cheap but never saw the brand at my local Walgreens until I visited a different one. The colors are beautiful in the pan. They all suit each other well and do not include any odd colors. Of course the packaging and texture and EVERYTHING is Wet n Wild. Unfortunately, the pigmentation is lacking on some colors. I still work with it but it would be …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Ronnie Red

This is a limited edition shade (as of February 2013) in the Archie's Girls collection. I love purchasing bold lipsticks but there are only few that I end up wearing and loving. I actually do not own any other red than this. I had Ruby Woo which was beautiful but a little too dry for me to actually wear out so I sold it. Ronnie Red is in that family of red (since I do not have any I …Read more

Jan/28/2013

Too faced sometimes does not get enough love. I only own the Boudoir and the Romance palette but I can honestly say that the brand is awesome...they have really stepped it up in the past few years. This palette is beautiful. If you love muted sexy colors then this is definitely for you. I knew I wanted to palette based off of the pictures I saw online but I was somewhat deterred by the …Read more

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

Jan/23/2013

I was really in to Tarte a few years ago and tried most of their foundations. I was pretty satisfied with my Nars Sheer Glow and Laura Mercier Mineral Powder and tinted moisturizers so I passed on this when it was released a while ago. I swatched it many times and I really liked how the color Light was yellow based. I finally got to try it when I ordered a QVC set which came with a brush …Read more

Loose Powders - Ben Nye - Bella Luxury Powder - Banana

Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2013

I heard about this product for a while and finally purchased it from ebay to see if it would work as a setting powder for my liquid foundations rather than always using a mineral powder to finish. I really do not see what is so special about it. It is not as yellow as I thought it would be, it is sort of a dark somewhat orange yellow. I was hoping for more of a pastel golden yellow. I suppose …Read more

Jan/23/2013

I searched everywhere for this "new" mascara. I heard that it has been around overseas and was in a hello kitty packaging in Asia. I bought into the whole mascara tip that is supposed to be similar to Benefit's They're Real and Givenchy mascara ball thingy lol. It is terrible. When I pulled the brush out I thought it would be shiny and wet like most new mascaras...no..it …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Unlisted Brand - INM - Out the Door Fast Drying Top Coat

Jan/09/2013

I heard of and have seen this brand for yearsss. I remember seeing a video raving about it and thought I would try it one day but kept buying Seche Vite. Seche Vite dries the quickest, way quicker than this, and is definitely thicker and therefore finishes glossier. I, however, hate hate hate how the Seche Vite makes your nails look after a few days. It pulls at the tips, making your nails …Read more

Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Notorious [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/08/2013

I am giving this a 4 based off of first impressions so that I can get this out ASAP since it is hard to find. The color is exactly as you see it online and yes it looks like a straight up eyeshadow. The difference between this and say an actual eyeshadow would be the texture and size. It is strangely pigmented but soft enough to blend over the face or eyes. Most eyeshadows that may be similar …Read more
