Mascara - essence - Lash Mania

Oct/08/2012

I had heard great things about this, and was very excited to find it. It's extremely inexpensive (I believe I paid less than $4 for my tube), and I loved how it looked on my lashes. It definitely lived up to the hype in that department. However, I have never tried a mascara that flaked as much as this did (I have had some that start to flake when they dry up, but this was a brand new tube) …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - Sexy Curves Mascara

Feb/16/2011

I really thought that I'd like this because of all of the hype surrounding it, but I am not a fan. I can see why some people like it, but it's not for me. It flakes, and my lashes look clumpy and spidery (not really the look I'm going for, ever). I do like the packaging, its lengthening abilities, and the fact that it doesn't smudge on me at all, but these qualities …Read more

Powder - wet n wild - 100% Natural Wear Pressed Powder

Jan/23/2011

I definitely did not think that I'd be saying this about this product, but this is the best pressed powder foundation I've ever tried. Although it does provide enough coverage to work as a foundation on its own, I apply it after I put on my liquid foundation and concealer in order to set my make-up, add extra coverage, and control oil. It does each of these things better than any other …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/14/2011

I'm thrilled that I decided to buy into the hype around this. It's fantastic, and was definitely worth the wait and the price. I'm pretty frugal and usually can't justify spending money on high-end make up, but this is an awesome deal and will save me from having to buy eyeshadow again for a very, very long time. Every shadow in this set is gorgeous, pigmented, creamy, easily …Read more

Concealers - Physicians Formula - Concealer Twins Yellow and Natural

Jan/14/2011

This product is a definite miss for me. The coverage is sheer at best, and it doesn't blend very well (I've tried patting it on with a flat concealer brush, blending it with a fluffy brush, and patting it on with my fingers), so it ends up looking uneven (oh, and it creases, too). I saw that someone else commented on how light this is, and I had the same issue--although I'm pretty …Read more

Skincare - Body - Dr. Bronner's - Lavender Liquid Soap

Jan/03/2011

I use this to take my make-up off before using my regular cleanser, as well as to clean my brushes. It's fabulous. It takes absolutely everything off of my skin and leaves no residue behind. I can see how it would be drying for some people as my pores feel tighter than usual after I use it, but I haven't had a problem with it. Also, I have acne, and I have noticed that my skin is much …Read more

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - e.l.f. Essential Brightening Eye Color - Luxe

This quad is great. As many people have said, the colors are super pretty, decently pigmented, not too shimmery, and they last a pretty long time. I've used the taupe color in the upper-right-hand corner up already, because it is the perfect brown smokey eye color for my skintone. The cranberry shade is gorgeous as well. The only color that I could really do without is the light gold color …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

Dec/30/2010

After using this for about 3 months in conjunction with the lotion and the moisturizer in Clinique's 3-Step Acne Solutions system, I have to say that I am on the fence about it. I like the system as a whole. While my skin hasn't completely cleared up (I have small breakouts mostly on my chin, still, but I think that that's hormonal), since I've started using it, I no longer …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - NYC New York Color - Eyelash Curler

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2010

I love this. It's inexpensive and works like a charm for me. I had one with black rubber pads that lacked a spring for at least two years, and it still curls my lashes. I have the one with the purple pads and a spring now, and it's even better. As far as inexpensive eyelash curlers go, this is it. I will repurchase them forever.

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Mia

Dec/07/2010

I broke down and bought this because I was at a breaking point with my skin. I have been dealing with acne for over ten years now, and have tried almost everything to get rid of it, to no avail. I was hesitant to spend as much as I did on this, and skeptical of whether or not it would work for me.
I've been using it for 2 months now, and while it hasn't cleared up my acne, it has …
