Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

4.0

Dec/12/2016

I think that it helps to make my foundation look nicer on my skin. It won't necessarily cover pores or help with the longevity of face makeup, but I think it mainly creates a smooth base to apply foundation over. I have dry skin, and I've noticed that on days where I have extremely dry, flaky skin, the primer will accentuate the flakiness. A little goes a long way -- as other people …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Born to Glow Illuminating Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/14/2016

As the name would suggest, this is a primer that makes your skin glow. It comes out as a white, runny liquid that blends to give your skin a beautiful glow. I like mixing this with my foundation; I have really dry/dehydrated skin, with dry patches on my cheeks and my forehead, and this allows me to wear other foundations that I normally cannot because of my dry skin. It doesn't make my face …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyebrow Cake Powder - Black/Grey

Apr/30/2015

As someone with gray/black eyebrows, I find it really difficult to find a good drugstore eyebrow product, as most of them are some form of brown (sigh). I also prefer powders, as pencils make my eyebrows too intense. I don't really have any other product to compare this too, but I really like it! You can definitely build it up for a stronger brow, if you would like — I like to tap my brush …Read more

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

3.0

I don't have dark circles per say — more like a dark vein that runs under each eye. This covers them up really well; the only thing is, every time I use it, my eyes get really watery. So, as much as I love how well my undereye darkness is concealed, I won't be repurchasing because of the bad reaction :(

Polishes - Essie - Absolutely Shore

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/25/2014

This color is a really pretty, green-grey color. It looks good on my light skin, and it also looks really good paired with a silver glitter polish (like an accent nail). That being said though, because it is a light color, I had to apply 3 coats to get it to full opacity. But that's what I normally have to do with light colors anyway, so that wasn't too much of a surprise or …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Limo-Scene

Apr/07/2014

When I saw it in stores, I thought that it was a must-have for my collection. I've been obsessing over light, pastel colors lately, so of course I couldn't resist this fair pink.
And wow.
Looking at it in the bottle and reading reviews, I definitely expected it to be sheer. Usually, I can get away with two or three thin coats to be opaque enough so that I can't see my …

Polishes - Essie - Truth or Flare

3.0

Mar/24/2014

It's a pretty blue - when I first saw it at Walmart, I thought that it was an interesting shade and decided to test it out. I used three thin coats (I'm sure that if you used thick coats, you can get by with two!) I feel like this color would look prettier matte than with the regular shine. The reason why I gave this three lippies is cos it doesn't look too flattering on me, but …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Barefoot in Barcelona

Sep/09/2013

This was my first OPI product, and I have to say I am so happy with it! It went on so smoothly and easily (I applied a top coat and a base coat and two coats for complete opacity) and it actually stayed for about four days without chipping, which was amazing considering that I was working at a theme park the first time I wore it. It didn't take that long to dry, either.
