My polish has never looked as good as it does with this topcoat. Glass shine and it refuses to chip. I even tried picking at the polish and it's not coming off. Also I'm loving the fact that my polish has medium size glitter bits in it and the Seche Vite has made it completely smooth so there's no rough bumps.
The only thing that might be bad is the fact that it smells very …

Love it. The shade I have is the lightest one and it's the perfect rosy glow, like I just got done "working out." Wink-nudge.

The only thing I find wrong is that it only comes in 3 shades and the pump pumps out more product than I need.

I have the .5oz sample size, which will last a while because a little goes a long way with this stuff.
I love how it doesn't feel oily when I put it on, it's not siliconey feeling like the original version of Photo Finish is. I like that it's more like a moisturizer.
It did keep oil at bay and kept my makeup on all day...which is what it's supposed to …

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Technakohl in Graphblack

I originally bought this for my waterline. I think I must have some seriously sensitive eyes because I wore this 3 days ago and my eyes are still burning. I can't speak as to how long it lasts on the lower lashes/waterline because the second it hit my lid my eyes reacted and started to tear up really bad which smeared the heck out of the eyeliner.
However, on the upper lid (not …

This is my first foray into face primers....and I hate it.
It is greasy and feels really disgusting and makes my makeup run.
supposedly it should make makeup last longer but honestly my makeup lasts much longer without the primer.

Also disturbing is that it separates in the tube so if you don't shake it up first only oil comes out (like a tube of mustard)

This …

Eyeliner - Jordana Cosmetics - Easyliner for Eyes (Retractable Pencil)

This eyeliner reminds me why I'm not an eyeliner fan.
Even with a primer it wears off into raccooney little smudges literally within minutes of putting it on. My lids aren't even that oily.

On the waterline it doesn't sting but it's not terribly comfortable either...it faded very soon after applying there too.

one lippie only because that's the …

Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush

Like the last reviewer said- DROP EVERYTHING AND BUY THIS BRUSH NOW!!!! Seriously.
I've been applying foundation with a flat "foundation" brush for about 2 years now and then having to go over the streaks with a sponge or my fingers. This completely eliminates the second step and makes my skin look airbrushed. It also covers everything quickly so your foundation dries at the …

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Dream Mousse Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

May/19/2010

I was looking for a cheaper alternative to my MAC Studio Sculpt concealer and found it. This goes on smoothly and is a PERFECT match to my skin. It doesn't fall into the fine lines around my eyes and once set lasts all day.
It feels like a bit of a rip off though because since the product is a mousse (same consistency as a chocolate mousse dessert) it looks as if there's more …

I remain on the fence about this product. I have sensitive skin and anything with the word "acid" in it tends to leave me red and splotchy. This is no exception. I scored this at Big Lots (a liquidation store for those not in the US) for only $1.50. I'd never heard of the brand before but that didn't deter me. I was pleased how quickly this sinks in and thrilled with how …Read more
