Polishes - wet n wild - 1 Step WonderGel Nail Color

Mar/08/2016

I'm pleasantly surprised by this polish. Im a hairstylist so my polish never lasts more than a day with regular polish (including Seche Viche base and top coat), or maybe 4-5 days with professional UV cured gel polish. But, my nails are so discolored from haircolor so I hate leaving them "naked". I only wear black polish and always used WnW's old Megashine black in the …Read more

Self Tanners - Nature's Gate - Sunless Tanner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2012

I don't actually WANT to be tan, but I live in Florida and even with sunscreen use, I get a little bit of color -- unevenly, because since I don't sunbathe, my exposure is daily stuff that I can't avoid; my left arm (from driving) is much darker than any other part of my body, my legs are fair because I mostly wear jeans, but my feet have tan lines from wearing flip-flops, and I …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Too Faced - Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer

4.0

Dec/16/2009

ok, i will admit i got this from a friend who works for Too Faced, but i SWEAR my review is completely unbiased by that fact; that said, this stuff is AMAZING. i have tried and wanted to love many primers, but none has been quite right. Philosophy's "the Present" came close, but i still was missing...something.

Primed & Poreless has it all -- primer qualities, a …

Lip Treatments - Tarte Cosmetics - Frxtion

Dec/04/2009

i ordered this during the 40% off cyber-monday sale, because i was already ordering the foundation i normally use, and i needed to push my total over $25 to get free shipping and a free lipgloss... so i ended up getting this for $5.50 USD. i had thought about purchasing it in the past, this was just the perfect time to try it.

unlike everyone else, i don't use the two sides …

Eyes - Pixi - Eye Zone Brightener

Jun/09/2009

i looked at this product for quite some time before taking the plunge. i have very dark circles under my eyes, regardless of how much (or how little) sleep and water i get. tiny wrinkles are beginning (i'm 33, and stay out of the sun as much as possible), but my bigger problem is that my undereye area is slightly sunken and always appears (and feels) dehydrated. so traditional undereye …Read more

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Chicken Poop

4.0

Jun/21/2008

i LOVE Chicken Poop! i admit, i got it because of the name -- i'm a sucker for gimmicky lip balms. my local Walgreen's and CVS used to carry it, and that's where i saw it. i also loved the all-natural ingredients. i was a little concerned that the scent would bother me because of the lavender oil in the balm (i am NOT a fan of lavender), but surprisingly, the combination of the …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

Jun/14/2008

love it. i'd been using MAC Studio Fix Fluid when i needed more coverage, or Select Tint SPF (both in either NC15 or NW15) when i needed less, as far as liquid foundations go... otherwise, i'd been really happy with Everyday Minerals intensive coverage. i loved that EM was so natural, but i still prefer a liquid formula. Also, i wasn't able to find a perfect shade match in any of …Read more

Lip Treatments - Soap & Glory - Sexy Motherpucker Lip Gloss

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2007

i admit, the main reason i've wanted to try this gloss is because of the name -- Sexy Motherpucker??? come on... you've GOTTA love that! sadly, there weren't many reviews online, and although i'll gladly drop $$$ on tried and true products, $10 for a new, untested product...well, i wasn't too keen on the idea. after more press started popping up online and i saw a few …Read more

Concealers - Everyday Minerals - Sunlight Color Corrector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/30/2007

LOVE THIS STUFF!

i use Sunlight over "regular" concealer under my eyes and on my lids... it disguises my dark circles, hides the little red blood vessels on my lids (i'm very fair), and brightens my entire eye area without looking obviously "concealer-ish" or giving the dreaded reverse-raccoon effect. in fact, most days, i don't even wear eyeshadow .. …

Powder - Everyday Minerals - Intensive Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/30/2007

as a makeup junkie and freelance MAC artist, i've tried tons of foundations in multiple formulas from various companies, and when the mineral craze hit, that was no exception. i spent lots of money on Bare Escentuals, and although i didn't experience the Bismuth Oxychloride Itch, i was less than satisfied with the color selection. i tried several lesser-known, internet-only brands, and …Read more
