Dry Shampoo - Oscar Blandi - Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray

Sep/15/2012

I very rarely hate a product so much that I throw it away in disgust. It usually lingers in my bathroom for a couple years and I'll have come back to it and tried it a couple more times before I guiltily toss it. Not so with this product. This was absolutely terrible. I tend to need dry shampoo between washes because I have very black, straight hair that gets very obviously greasy at the …Read more

I got this to replace my Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion but I must say I much prefer the Shiseido. Aside from being a lower SPF than what I was using, I feel that this product just just doesn't do as good of a job as Shiseido under makeup. My mu fades a lot more quickly with this and my forehead is always greasy at the end of the day it is blindingly shiny in the sun. It also does …Read more

Polishes - Butter London - La Moss

Streaky and blotchy, unfortunately. This is not such an unusual or bad thing on the first coat but this was the case all through the third coat. I simply could not achieve a smooth finish with this. Beautiful, brown-leaning red that def has a vampy, sexy feel. Total waste of a beautiful color on the worst formula I've ever come across in a nail polish. You've been warned!

This is my favorite lip gloss I've gotten in awhile! It's got nice pigmentation, is a great consistency (not to sticky), and it smells really good. It lats around two hours before I have to reapply, which if around average for me for a lip gloss.

I am pretty disappointed by this product and was not a bit surprised by the unusually low lippie score this shade has compared to the rest of the Color Tattoo eyeshadow line. My thoughts after having it and playing around with a couple days are as follows:


COLOR: This is what attracted me to the shade in the first place. In the jar, it looks like a gorgeous shimmery neutral …

Cleansers - Lumene - Lift Touch Rejuvenating Cleansing Oil

Dec/03/2011

This is one of the only emulsifying oil cleansers available at drugstores and it is definitely an awesome find. This is a fantastic oil cleanser that does exactly what oil cleansers should do--it efficiently removes my makeup completely (I wear sunscreen, waterproof mascara and waterproof liner, among other things) and rinses away easily. I have used a number of different higher-end oil …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies in Black Drama

I generally have not had good luck with drugstore brands but this mascara is surprisingly brilliant for my lashes! I have the waterproof version.


I have shortish, stick straight Asian lashes which are very resistent to staying curled. Many, many mascaras I've tried will make them droop even after curling, which sort of defeats the whole purpose of wearing mascara for me. …

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Sheer Finish Kabuki Brush

Once again, I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Ecotools. This is a gorgeous, unique looking short-handled duo-fiber brush with a head similar to the infamous MAC 187, with the difference being that the head on this brush is about 20% larger than the 187 and is made of two different types of synthetic fibers.


It's marketed as a finishing kabuki but my favorite …

Wow, this is SUCH a lovely color! In the pot, it looks like a very blackened blue with very fine silver shimmers. What really sets this apart from your usual navy blue eyeliner, however, is the fact that it has a healthy dose of teal thrown in too, for good measure. This makes the color very unique and it looks gorgeous on my brown/black eyes.


When applied to my lids, you …

What a fantastic product! I've gotten very selective over the last couple years about my lipbalm because it's become obvious that some work better than others. This is definitely in my top three lipbalms, along with Aquaphor and LUSH Honey Trap.


I have very peely, lined dry lips that I pick at all the time. It's such a bad habit (I get spots that are raw and …
