Polishes - wet n wild - 1 Step Wonder Gel

Not sure how this is much different from a regular, non-gel polish. I painted my nails in the white color. It's a decently opaque white; maybe with better mani skills, I could have gotten a uniform white color with only two coats. But the wear and chipping time is just like any other nail polish. It dried relatively quickly but in the last four days that this manicure has lasted …Read more

Best sunscreen ever. I say this as an oily-/combo-/acneic-skinned woman who HATES putting on lotions of any sort, particularly sunblock. Easy application, nowhere near greasy at all, velvety smooth finish. I wish I could slather this stuff over my whole body at the beach.

Mascara - REVLON - Mega Multiplier Mascara

New mascara by Revlon advertises a new formula that "combines fibers and 360-degree tube technology" for volume and length. I got excited hoping it would be a dupe for Imju Fiberwig, my HG. Application is fine, but the results were completely average. Volume was mediocre (though I don't even look for volume in mascara) and length was meh, which is disappointing for a fiber …Read more

Eyeliner - wet n wild - Megalast Retractable Eyeliner

Cheap and with a useful smudging tip at the other end, this eyeliner would be great if the contents actually stayed on oily lids for more than two hours. The Black-Brown color started to break down and disappear quickly in my hooded Asian eyelids, and I didn't even think I was that oily. Too bad the product sucks because the packaging is very functional though not fancy.

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

Ugh, not worth the $5. For background, I look mostly for lengthening in a mascara. This one didn't do much for length, was clumpy and stuck some lashes together, and for its grand finale, smudged on my lower eyelid in just a few hours. I don't understand the differences between the essence mascaras, they sound like they are all volumizing mascaras under different silly names.

Top/Base Coats - essence - The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat

3.0

Apr/08/2017

Not sure what the big fuss is. In my view, the main pro here is its regular price point and wide brush. But it doesn't perform like true gel polish. I've used it three times so far, twice with the Essence nail polishes, all times with the Seche Vite Ridge Filler base coat. My manicure stayed pretty much chip-free for 5-6 days, which I would think is what standard top coats do. But …Read more

Best sunscreen I've come across - just bought and re-bought for two tropical vacations. Incredibly not-greasy or sticky, it feels cool and a bit frothier than normal sunblock lotion. Rub it in, and after a few minutes, it's actually hard to tell you have anything on. I can't stand putting on lotion because of how greasy and sticky it feels, but this stuff is great. Highly …Read more

This is a good choice for anyone who likes Imju's Fiberwig. It's like Fiberwig-lite. Not as lengthening as Fiberwig, but the same thing with a cheaper price. I think I might go back to Fiberwig since I only bought this to save some money, but still a pretty good mascara.

Great brush, especially for the price. I use it for MAC gel eyeliner. Since it's a bit long, it's gentle on the eyes and a little more forgiving if you're prone to making mistakes. I've been using it for a few weeks now, and it hasn't gotten super dirty/crusty. Would buy again (in fact, I bought a few extras).
