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