christi4200 did a great and useful review. I found it especially helpful as I am a NC35 as well. It's winter now, so I'm a little paler so I found I couldn't use it straight out. I wanted to add that this purchase is my first non-natural product in awhile. I've pretty much switched to organic and natural brands, but was soooo curious to try the Skin79 BBcream. First off …Read more

Was disappointed that this didn't work better, but I think that what I've learned about curly hair is that it is more particular than straight hair - the way the it is dry and wavy works uniquely. So what others find works well, works only OK for me because I have big curls and coarse hair, very dry. So this did not keep my hair moist enough, but it didn't dry it either, hence 3 …Read more

My FAVORITE vamp all stops out red, not replicated by my now favorite brand of lipstick - a little known handmade brand called Elixr. I mostly wear natural lipstick now, no technical wowie ones like what makes this one stand out, so this biases how often I wear this. Still, I pull this one out when I am going all out red and looking not to reapply for hours. I apply it the old fashioned way …Read more

I need a button for Maybe I'll purchase again.

I have methodically been getting rid of all my polishes that are not 3- 5- 7-free but as of this point, not all the colors that I love and get a yen for are available. I've already got some of the basic Must Have colors covered but really it's hard to get away from the smoothness and the coverage of OPI! :(

So I …

I met the formulator at an Eco Beauty show in NYC; she felt a bit stand-offish but her product is fabulous. The lipstick goes on smooth, is relatively weightless and lasts on your lips. what's more, the flavor is vanilla-ey and not too strong. Ingredients used are top notch and there is no animal testing associated with this brand.

My past go-to brand for lipstick is MAC, but the …

love this color - am always looking for nudes that look good on me. because i have golden medium skin, most often they look either like a band-aid (too pink) or too brown/yellowish. This one went on nicely beginning at one coat and has a nice mauvish look. Will see what the lasting power is....

Kind of pricey but this is such a good for you product, I will pay it for the R&D it takes to support small companies with such a sound take on cosmetics. I love the new packaging - has a retro yet modern look. I've put up pics of my little silver compact (in Toffee), so pretty and even has a mirror on the back of the lid. I contmeplated giving it only 4 lippies because it doesn't …Read more

This is a pre-review with a strong interest to buy.

Wanted to put out there - there is so much conflicting info, but that as of this date: MP only carries a 1 year limited warranty against manufacturing defects. DON'T BELIEVE THESE BRUSHES ARE GUARANTEED FOR LIFE - THEY HAVE CHANGED THIS AND THEY DON'T.

So that's out there, and I still want to try them out …

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

Sep/16/2014

This is my third bottle, and finally I gave in and instead of buying a new one when it got too thick, I gave in and bought the special thinner. should have done that years ago - a little of the thinner goes a long way. IMO this top coat is best applied one thick coat. Let the two layers of color dry a bit first and then put this on thickly AND QUICKLY. The stuff is amazing in that it SELF LEVELS …Read more

If you loved Wicked, but hate Essie polishes and that funny brown tone that Wicked had, this season's (Fall 2014?) Gwen Stefani collection color I Sing in Color might work for you.

I love the dark winey/black effect of Wicked but prefer a something with a Red undertone instead of a Brown undertone. I used Essie Material Girl which had that for a while, but if there is a "Are …
