What can I say about this? It just really, really works for me. Since switching to a Korean beauty routine (and this is part of it) my skin has totally changed and people have definitely noticed.

I use this after my cleanse and toner. It's very thin and watery - I apply it with a cotton pad to my T-zone and cheekbones. I let it dry a bit before I apply the next step (which for me …

Polishes - China Glaze - Orchid Shadow

5.0

Can't believe there are no reviews of this polish! One of my very favorite neutrals. A medium greyish beige with the barest hint of lavender, and a very subtle gold shimmer. Neutral and sophisticated but with a little extra interest because of the gold. Such a unique color, I really love it.

Good wear as with all China Glazes, and full coverage with two coats.

Jan/07/2016

update: I have to revise my star rating to five (was previously three). Though I can't seem to smell it after a little while - maybe my nose just gets immune? others can DEFINITELY smell it on me, and I get compliments every time I wear it, which I don't ordinarily let sway me, but this time I can't help it. It's quickly become a signature fragrance for me and I really adore …Read more

Fragrances - Philosophy - Inner Grace EDP

People used to love this brand. I can understand why - at least as far as perfumes are concerned, their fragrances are gentle, inoffensive, and easy to wear on a daily basis or to places like work, where you don't want to wear an overpowering fragrance. The unfortunate thing is that since the company was bought by a much larger one a while back, the quality of the products has gone down …Read more

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Hello Sailor

I can see why some people are underwhelmed by this lipstick, but I absolutely adore it.

Here's the rundown: this is a sheer blue-tinted berry stain. The texture has a lot of slip, like a balm. I have a few LQ lipsticks and this is even more sheerly tinted than some of the other sheerish tints I have (medieval and frog prince).

However, I really love it, because it …

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Beautifying Oil - All Scents

Aug/16/2015

Current favorite body moisturizer. I have tried this in a bunch of different scents, and they all perform pretty much the same, so that's why I created an umbrella review.

I keep coming back to this oil as an allover body moisturizer because I really love the ease of application and the formula. I generally find most body lotions to be too heavy and too much of a pain to apply …

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Frog Prince

Last week I went on a shopping spree and bought five Lipstick Queen lipsticks.

I am in LOVE with Frog Prince.

Frog Prince (and actually most of the Lipstick Queen lipsticks) are not your typical lipstick. Which is exactly why I love them! Rather than being waxy pigments that stick to your lips, these are really more like stains. They're moisturizing pigmented tints …

Hair Color - LUSH - Caca Marron

This stuff is great IF you know what you're getting yourself into beforehand. Read on!

The good: a healthy tint (deep chestnut-red), conditioning, and shine. Note that I said TINT. It's a sheer color coat over your hair. If you're looking for a very dramatic change, perhaps the Lush hennas are not for you.

The bad: Messy, and let's be frank, expensive …

Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - KISS - InstaWave Automatic Curler

Dec/23/2014

What a... weird little curling iron. I picked this up on a whim at Target. I'd been using a wand curler but wanted something a little different with a straight barrel, rather than tapered. I got it home and tried it out right away.

The good:
Relatively idiot-proof. There are only two heat settings, high and low. According to the package, high is 420 (heh) and it …
