Toners - MAY COOP - Raw Sauce

I'm not sure when I got my first bottle of this product, maybe early last year? Anyway, I know I started using it in March when the weather here was still raw and wet. I started using it as the first step in my PM skincare routine every other night and really liked it. It played well with all of my other products and by the time warmer weather rolled around, it was great under my sunscreen …Read more

Brows - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Castor Oil

Ahh, my favorite winter eyelash and eyebrow treatment, and also when I've worn a ton of heavy duty mascara.

Yes, it's very thick and yes, it will give you blurry eyes if you put too much on your lashes or put along your lash line. I've made that mistake and ugh, it's a pain in the butt the next morning to get out of your lashes. I apply the oil with a spoolie brush …

Just started using this product, will more than likely revise review in a month or so.

Found this thru the Nail Board and a couple of nail Facebooks. After looking at the product list and reading reviews both good and bad, I finally had to get some and see if it's all that it's supposed to be.

So far I'm on the 3rd "middle of finger only" application and …

WHERE HAS THIS COMPANY BEEN ALL MY LIFE???

I am an enthusiastic fan of what's now called "fashion color" hair dye. I'm not a natural redhead, but I've had dyed red hair for so long I might as well be! And I've been just about every shade of red too, from strawberry to burgundy. When the shades of red the company that my stylist used were no longer available …

This is one of the products that Avon has collaborated with The Face Shop. I've only been using it a month, every couple of days, so if there are any changes I'll come back and revise this review.

As a fan of Korean and Japanese skin and hair care products, I was interested when my Avon rep told me the company was going to be coming out with a collaboration with The Face Shop …

Top/Base Coats - Unlisted Brand - Tonic Nail Polish

5.0

8 months ago

This is for Tonic Nail Polish's basecoat, "French Undies." It's a lovely peachy-pink shade that works well all by itself to give you a slightly glossy, slightly tinted look. I've used this with a regular top coat and a holo topcoat when I want to dress up my nails but don't want to take forever to get a nice look.

My nails also seem a bit stronger since I …

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Cupcake Polish

I blame the folks on the Nail Board for getting me into indie polishes [LOL]!! This is one of my favorites so far. I'm currently going thru my stash of polishes from this company and right now I'm pretty darn impressed. The particular color that is first up is called "Gamma," it is a bright pink with blue and purple bits that come up very well under bright outdoor light and …Read more

Foundations - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Color-Correcting Cream

Just started using this, I have it in Transforming Porcelain Beige. I'll probably come back and update this review after I've used it a few times, but these are my initial thoughts:

1. It's a bit on the thick side and you don't need much to cover the areas you want to cover. I used it pretty much all over my face to test it out on spots that aren't red but …

Polishes - ILNP - Holographic Nail Polish - Black Orchid

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/09/2019

Black Orchid is a very deep maroon with red, gold & iridescent sparkles and shows up dark plum with iridescent sparkle in the bottle. In some light it shows up black and in others, dark maroon.

Wear time over Stickey base coat and with Fast & Hard topcoat from Vibrant Vinyls [indie polish maker] is pretty decent. I'm not too hard on my hands and haven't seen any …

Moisturizers - Soap & Glory - Wish Upon A Jar

Created with Sketch.

Jan/09/2019

Wish Upon A Jar is a peptide & other moisturizing agents face cream from Soap and Glory. It's somewhat heavy, with a perfume that fades rather fast after application. I like S&G products and since one of my favorite EBay sellers had it on sale, I figured I'd try it and see how it did for me.

I haven't seen any bad results from it, no pimples, dry skin …
