Mascara - essence - I Love Extreme - Volume Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/16/2016

I'm pretty picky when it comes to mascara. When I went to buy this one, at first I was thinking about getting the Extreme Crazy Volume version, but when I saw the brush I was like hell no (I prefer a more traditional wand.) The I Heart Extreme Volume had a more promising looking brush so I picked it up instead.

Well, the bristles to this are still synthetic. They're not …

Moisturizers - Alaffia - EveryDay Coconut Night Face Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2016

I'd been using the same moisturizer religiously for a long time but have been transitioning into only buying cruelty-free products. I picked up a bottle of this night cream for $6.99. I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to find something within a reasonable price range (my cruelty-free body wash is double what I'm used to paying.) So I was shocked when I found a 12 fl oz …Read more

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Dermacontrol Oil Control Foam Wash

2.0

Avoid this unless your face is SUPER oily.... otherwise it'll make your skin dry and dull. I can't get into foaming cleansers that come out as foam immediately upon dispensing (like foaming hand soaps). My skin just needs something that starts off thicker and lathers.

Lips - Hard Candy - Velvet Matte Mousse Lip Color

5.0

Mar/11/2016

I purchased mine in the shade Cherry Blossom, which is a bright berry pink. It was $6.00 at Walmart. They have seven shades to choose from: a warm nude, two pink shades, a coral, a red, and two darker vampy colors.

The lip velvet itself (which is a mousse-like liquid lipstick) is packaged in a clear plastic tube with a silver lid. It was really surprising to me that this lip …

Pressed Powders - wet n wild - Coverall Pressed Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/08/2016

I have relatively normal skin and wanted to see if a powder foundation would even suit me before I try a more expensive one. This one works well for me. I apply moisturizer beforehand or it will really cling to dry patches but that's to be expected seeing as it's a powder.

I apply it with a regular powder brush (the sponge applicator that comes with this isn't the best) …

Shampoo - John Frieda - Brilliant Brunette Multi-Tone Revealing Moisturizing Shampoo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/08/2016

Ok so this review is for the shampoo & conditioner used in tandem. I did a little research before reviewing these products... mainly to try to pinpoint what they smell like. If you've ever used any of the John Frieda Brilliant Brunette line you'll know what I'm talking about. The products have a distinct scent which I find to be truly wonderful, but hard to put a finger on …Read more

Polishes - RIMMEL - 60 Seconds Nail Polish

4.0

Feb/26/2016

I only own one of these nail polishes and it is in the shade 853 Pillow Talk (one of the few shades that doesn't have it's own specific review and I'm too lazy to create one.) So I really can't speak for the entire range, but here are my thoughts on this particular color:

It is from the "Rita Ora" collection (I have no idea who that is). I got this polish …

Foundations - wet n wild - Coverall Cream Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2016

I'm almost finished with my first tube of this foundation and it's perfection.

Recently I decided to stop purchasing makeup from companies who test on animals. Looking up high-end cruelty-free foundations online led me to price ranges between $39-$62. Not something that I feel comfortable spending on foundation at this time.

Without reading reviews, I turned to my …

Lip Liners - Jordana Cosmetics - Easyliner for Lips - Sedona Red

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2016

It's been said before but I'll say it again... this is a true tomato-red lip liner. I bought this before reading reviews and was expecting something a little more cool toned to pair with my Stila liquid lipstick in Firey. However, this works perfectly for that purpose.

This is the first lip liner I've ever owned (I'm almost 25.) When I applied it the first time, I …
