Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - Roller Lash Mascara

I have the shortest, stubbiest, straightest lashes around and will always be searching for my holy grail mascara. I've used fibers, and layered different mascaras. I have tried different lash curlers, heated them and used various techniques to get the perfect long lasting curl. I really want extensions, but until then, I will be using this mascara along with Cover Girl's fiber …Read more

Lipstick - Sephora Collection - Luster Matte Long Wear Lip Color

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/08/2016

Matte lipsticks have always had a delicate balance to deal with. In order to get that matte finish they either are waxy, which cake or are so dry, that they crack and are almost uncomfortable to wear. This is the first matte finish lip product that didn't really do any of those things. You get an attractive matte finish, with long comfortable wear, that doesn't cake or crack. They …Read more

Palettes - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest Of The Sea

This is a really beautiful pallet full of very wearable colors. They all have decent color pay off and the packaging is spectacular. The only thing I would have liked is maybe a lighter highlight, and a couple of the shades to be matte..they are all shimmer except two. If I was traveling I would need to bring another pallet to achieve everything I wanted. A couple of the colors are very …Read more

I purchased the Gleam pallet( the silver one with pinkier shades) and I was really pleased. You get a great deal of product for a great price, much better value than many others out there. The pans were huge and the colors, while they look darker in the pan make a beautiful highlight on the skin. It wears a bit better than some, but that is the one reason I took away one lippie. I have never …Read more

Skincare - Face - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting Mist

Mar/31/2016

Based on reviews I was a little leary of this product. I received a sample and ended up loving it. The smell is wonderful, though strong and I can see where it may irritate some skins and allergies. I have experimented using this different ways, they suggest several. I only use it one way. I use another primer, put on my foundation and concealer, then spray this on. I then take my beauty …Read more

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest of the Sea Foundation

Mar/31/2016

I wanted to love this foundation. I really like my Bare Minerals serum foundation, except the color I purchased is too dark and it is slightly oily in texture, and doesn't wear well, so I thought maybe this would be the answer. Unfortunately, it didn't work for my skin. It might be perfect for an oiler skin for sheer coverage. It's coverage is not that buildable, and no where …Read more

Eyeliner - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest of the Sea So Fine Micro Liner

Mar/31/2016

When I first tried this liner, I liked it. The size of the tip makes it nice for tightlining and getting a small flick. The reason I won't repurchase is that it is so liquidy that it runs and bleeds a bit as I apply it. It wears ok,but I have had cheaper versions that apply more smoothly and stay on longer..soooo

I would have given this 4 lippies except that the reason I like it is not really it's main purpose. It is not very hydrating, has a more velvety feel on the skin. I like it for daytime as long as I hydrate with something heavier at night. I think it will be nice in the summer. What I really have been impressed with is the anti-aging properties of the product. I notice an all over …Read more

Eye Shadow - Makeup Geek - Eyeshadow - Shimma Shimma

5.0

Shimma Shimma was my first makeup geek shadow. It is a great dupe for Stila's cult classic Kitten. I actually like it better however, as it is slightly less frosty, and a bit more neutral. It is much better for those of us that want to avoid too much frost getting into those fine lines. It is just enough shimmer to spice up any look, day or night.

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/29/2015

After reading a lot of the reviews, I did rethink the hype. True, there are drugstore brands that may be close to as wonderful for a third of the price. I think the difference, is in how it treats my lashes. I have to use waterproof to get any staying power in drugstore brands, which of course cause my lashes to fall out and break. But after a couple weeks of treating my lashes to Diorshow …Read more
