Why oh why did I stray from my Milani eye tech pen :( I can tell you the same thing everyone else has! It flakes, the pigment isn't long lasting, and it dries out so quickly on the tip itself I have to dip twice to do one eye. Plus personally just because I am not the best at liquid I really do not like floppy tip and would like something much more precise and stiff. If you like the idea …Read more

I got a sample and I am still quite torn on how i feel about it. The first time I used it my hair was quite soft and I began to think "heck why not buy this rather than it's a 10 which cost 5 times as much". But the second time i used it my hair was very very dry. I have no idea if i used too much or maybe my hair got too much build up from it i do not know. But i can tell you that …Read more

I would definetly agree that between this and the strawberry creme gloss by bonnie bell that this is a good dupe for NARS turkish delight. It smells wonderfull if you like scented lipglosses , kind of like vanilla cake. I tried the turkish delight and i will say the MAIN reason i didnt buy it was not because of price but because of scent. It smelled like burnt plastic.
Anyways, its a light …

So I am kinda torn between loving and hating this foundation. I was between buying this foundation and the Laura Mercier tinted foundation which I hear is pretty similar in coverage. I am not the type of woman to look like I am wearing full coverage foundation so this was deffinetly a good choice.
It has a 15spf which is good if you like that sort of thing, i personally prefer low spf …

I love this glitter polish, it's unlike anything I own. It actually reminds me of a dupe for a deborah lippman polish (i forgot the name). My favorite way to apply this is over a medium pink color towards the tips, it ends up looking like a pink donut with springkles :) yes it takes a bit of time to dry but nothing out of the ordinary. I think for a deborah lippman dupe, the look, and price …Read more

I am suprised that the reviews for this color are not so good. I was looking for an orange lipstick seeing as that seems to be the "in" color for this summer. Since I was not about to shell out more than 10.00 I was between this color and orange-gina. This color has no frost and is very pigmented which can be easily tones down or layered for an opaque look. I think it's a great …Read more

I am in love love love with this balm. I wanted something that gave a wash of color but was not greasy or shiny. The color comes off as a pink-red tone but can be built up fairly bright if layered.It's also very moisturizing and the ingredients it is made with are very high end and so I can understand why it may work better than your run-of- the- mill balms.
The tube is equally as …

i bought this hoping that it would give me those full thick soft feathery lashes that I see in the magazines. Alas it did not :(
I am unsure if it is the fact that it is fairly new but I find the product to be fairly wet and not very thickening or lengthening. Even when layered multiple times I can not get it as even full and long as I get with my Loreal Voluminous. Maybe once this thickens …

I bought this because I was looking for a highlighter different than my NARS albatross. I purchsed it in the color honey rose and it came in a large sifter jar. It's a light pink semi shimmery powder used for either highlighting, or if bought in truth and light an all over powder. As others have said it must be used with a synthetic brush possibly a dual fiber brush otherwise it will just …Read more

I bought this with the hope that it would matte out my skin without having to wear primer or foundation. But all it did was made my skin semi-matte,dry, and itchy. It basically uses the same ingredients as seen in an acne medication to matte the skin, but so far it just makes my skin itchy and dry. I'm pretty dissapointed in this seeing as it overall sounded like a great concept.
