A very nice coworker lent this np to me. A very nice bluish grey with a metallic finsih, which can look almost green under certain lights. Requires two coats to look good (streaky on the first coat). The application was not really smooth but I managed to do a decent job anyway. I have been wearing it for two days and have experienced no chipping, only some minor, normal tipwear (i always remove …Read more

I bought this mascara a year ago (I always buy my mascaras when there's a pay 2 get 3 promotion) and although I usually don't do carbon black or fall for "false lashes" promises I though I would give this one a try... maybe it was the Milla Jovovich photo.

I have been using it for the last 3 months, so I think I can write a fair review now, just before dumping it …

Ok, lets start with the good things, although I am not all that pleased with Orly NP...

It applies beautifully: smooth, easy, almost made me believe I am good at painting my nails... plus one coat gave me enough coverage. After I painted my nails I was ready to write a 5 lippie review...

But... it chipped by noon the next day! Since I discovered my beloved Mavala 002 Base I …

I am a working mom with little time for manis, and I usually do my nails in bed before falling asleep... I do need a dry fast top coat or else forget about nail polish becaouse of evil sheet marks... until now I had used Sally Hansen Insta Dri but since Seche Vite is such a favourite of Nail Board girls, I thought I'd give it a try.

It's easy to apply (I haven't …

Lip Gloss - CLINIQUE - Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine gloss in Glamour-full

May/05/2009

I got this in a sample size as a GWP, I probably wouldn't have bought it, because I am a cheap (Revlon mostly) girl as far as makeup is concerned, and my high-end buys are usually Bobbi Brown or MAC, but...

This is a very pretty color, a true YLBB (your lips but better) gloss, a very close match to MAC Viva Glam V (I have both by my side as I write this review). It has remarkable …

*PICS* I am not a great fan of Jafra products, althouugh I have purchased a few because I am friends with a Jafra representative.

BTWIN is their line marketed to teens, and as such has an array of nail polishes in funky colors and finishes. B-DARK, despite of the goth resounding in it's name, is a pretty lilac, almost an exact match to the UDPP tube, with lots of teal shimmer …

I bought this product some 5 weeks ago, and have used it daily since, so I think I am ready to review now.

I hesitated a lot about before buying because the 50 USD price tag translates to 700 mexican pesos, which is steeeep for a working girl like me... anyway, I very much wanted the eye liner brush, which on its own costs 350 pesos, and is included in the palette (in a dual ended eye …

Good things first: color and price. The color is a beatiful green, with a lot of blue in it, but clearly a green to me. This could be the color of a super fresh mint mouth wash (I wish I were as good as other MUAers at describing colors). Has a shimmer finish. Very beautiful and unique color (at least for drugstore brands available to me). Got tons of compliments from girls in my office. I am …Read more

In the bottle it doesn't seem much: just a pearly white nailpolish with a shimmer. I am usually a creme finish girl, and tend to prefer darker colors and I wouldn't have picked this one if my sweet coworker hadn't let me try hers... wow! I'm so grateful she did! I really love this nailpolish and wearing it makes me so happy (that's what nailpolish is about, right?). I …Read more

Nov/17/2008

THE REASON: I usually don't wear a lot of mu, just mascara and eyeliner, but I still need to remove them before going to bed, right? I bought this as a replacement to Mary Kays Oil Fre Eye Make Up Remover (and it has passed the test).
THE PRODUCT: Blue, two phase liquid in a bottle that feels much cheaper than Mary Kay's but that nontheless delivers the right amount of product and …
