Hair Color - Ion - Color Brilliance Demi-Permanent Hair Color

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/23/2013

I really liked this dye. I have medium chocolate brown hair and due to heat styling regularly and using bleach (ombre, past highlights) my hair was several shades of brown. I went out and purchased Medium Warm Brown (4W) hoping to keep the same depth of color, but make my hair one solid color.

I first used Ion Color Corrector to lift any color buildup from my hair, blow dried and then …

Styling Products - TRESemmé - Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2012

I've gone through a few bottles of this stuff, so I'm able to let you know how I feel about this product very well.

I heat style my hair a few days out the week for several years, so I've been through many heat protectants.

I've repurchased the Tresemme one more than any of the others for these reasons:

1) It's very cheap, and it's …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen + Pearl - Pink Pearl Pop

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2012

Pink Pearl Pop debuted in the MAC Cremesheen + Pearl Collection at the end of Summer '12. All shades in the collection are now a part of the permanent collection.

Pink Pearl Pop (Cremesheen) is a very girly and subtly warm, mid-tone vibrant pink. If you're feeling like you want to wear something other than your average muted pink (MAC Hue, Creme Cup, etc) but don't want …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Trax

I love trax. I don't know if there is anything I can say that hasn't been said before. It's a multidimensional neutral purple with gold shimmer. It's not crazy pigmented, but I use a MAC Paint Pot as a base and then pack on the color with a sponge applicator or a synthetic concealer brush and I get opaque coverage. I wear it all over the lid and on my lower lashline and smudge …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Hot Gossip - Cremesheen

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2012

MAC Hot Gossip Lipstick is described as a mid-tone pinky plum. I'd like to call it a grown-up pink - your progression from baby pinks and nudes. It looks quite boring in the tube when you look at it in indoor lighting, but in the sunlight, you really get to see how complex and pretty this pink is. It kind of reminds me of a more pigmented, brighter and pinker Rimmel Airy …Read more

Mascara - Eyeko - Skinny Brush Mascara (Long &Tall)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2012

I'll make this review short and sweet. This mascara is awesome. It lengthens, builds volume incredibly well, keeps my lashes curled, holds up well throughout the day without flaking and very minimal to no smudging. The only problems I encounter is sometimes it can make my lashes clumpy, and that it's difficult to remove. It's not terribly difficult, but it doesn't come off as …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lipstick in Bombshell

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2012

MAC Bombshell Lipstick is a soft rosy pink with pink and golden shimmer. It's a frost formula lipstick, so if you don't like frost, this might not be a lipstick for you - but for reference, I can tolerate many of MAC's Frost Lipsticks as the actual formula is nice and they don't tend to be overly frosty.

The lipstick is smooth (non-gritty and dry like many frost …

Lipstick - Edward Bess - Ultra Slick Lipstick in Secret Desire

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2012

Secret Desire is a beautiful, creamy natural peachy-pink. Although it looks rather peach in the tube (almost like Nars Belle De Jour) but it's most certainly pink. It's soft, neutral and perfect for every day. Many like describing it as a "my lips but better shade, and for light skin tones it is! For medium -dark skin tones it'd work great as a nude.

Secret Desire …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Cream Blush in Constantinople

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2012

Constantinople is a very pretty deep, neutral rose. But because of my yellow undertones, this color morphs into a coppery bronze/terracotta shade (This is my polite way of saying orange). I own so many similar shades, so it was a bit of a disappointment that the color didn't stay true. On my cheeks, its pretty similar to MAC Gingerly Blush or even Becca Peach Beach Tint. Nars Lovejoy is also …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Xtreme Lip Cream - Absolute Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2012

NYX Absolute Red Xtreme Lip Cream ($5.99) is an opaque cherry/blood red lip color with a glossy finish. NYX Xtreme Lip Creams are a lipgloss/lipstick hybrid as the product is completely opaque with one coat, yet it has the texture and shine of a gloss. I'd compare the pigmentation to OCC Lip Tars, though these are much more moisturizing.

Absolute Red is such a perfect, sexy shade …
