Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Tattoo Studio Sharpenable Gel Pencil Longwear Eyeliner - Deep Onyx

5.0

30 days ago

In my desperation looking for a pencil liner that wouldn't budge in my waterline, I impulsively picked this one up at Target. I don't use gel eyeliner, but I had heard only rave reviews about the Tattoo Studio Gel Eyeliner, so I figured a waterproof pencil gel liner would be worth trying. This was also the first black liner that I had put in the waterline in years, as I have been a …Read more

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Liquid Eyeliner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

30 days ago

As someone who wears liquid eyeliner pretty much every day, it's really important that I use an affordable, very black, and very matte liner that is not prone to creasing. I had been a loyal buyer of the Wet n Wild Megaliner Liquid Liner for 3-4 years, but my last three have been...off. I only assume they reformulated them, because those three were far less black then they used to be, the …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Nail Polish Colors

30 days ago

Of the Insta-Dri polishes, I've tried three: Petal To The Metal (metallic), Thyme Is Money (cream), and Gold Rush (matte metallic). My favorite of those three is easily Petal To The Metal, which is a beautiful pinky rose gold with fine metallic shimmer dispersed evenly throughout. It was also the polish that lasted the longest on my nails. Thyme Is Money is a sage green with no shimmer and a …Read more

Fragrances - Viktor & Rolf - Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

I cannot even express to you enough how IDENTICAL this smells to Bath & Body Works Sensual Amber on me. I've tested Sensual Amber on one wrist and Flowerbomb on the other, side by side, and there is basically no discernible differences. Flowerbomb is not at all representative of its name; it's much more of a gourmandchouli. It's curious that amber isn't in …Read more

Fragrances - Pacifica - Island Vanilla Perfume

5.0

I like to call this a hippie girl's Viva La Juicy. It's sweet, playful, and youthful (not that you have to be young to wear it!). It smells like straight up vanilla on my skin, just cool (breezy and more like vanilla extract, compared to more foody and deeper) vanilla. Fragrantica says it has notes of jasmine, vanilla, tea, white honey, and fruity notes. I can maybe smell a hint of tea …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

4.0

1 month ago

Unless you have super long, curly natural lashes (I do not), this mascara is unlikely to give you a dramatic fake eyelash effect. However, I do think it's quite a good mascara, especially for the price point. It is GREAT for holding a curl, which is why I specifically sought out the waterproof version. The original is not great at holding a curl, in my experience. I have short, very straight …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

This one is probably not for you if you have a definite neutral undertone. I'm an almost perfect match to NC10 (Not Cool 10), meaning I'm quite light and warm. MAC base products in general tend to skew quite yellow or pink, and NC10 is very slightly more yellow than my skin, but definitely a really good match. The powder is smooth, making it easy to minimize the color difference between …Read more

Please be sure to try this one on before purchase. I am so thankful that I did because, as a vanilla lover, it sounded perfect to me. I'm not the biggest fan of most gourmands, mostly because my skin can't handle a lot of them (and this will come into play later), but I still adore a sweet heady vanilla, so I gave it a shot by testing it at Ulta. It smelled lovely in the bottle, like an …Read more

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Alien Eau de Parfum

OK, this is gorgeous!

I'll try to keep the backstory brief, but I initially tested this out alongside Angel, which was a BIG no-no for me. My skin took the patchouli and chocolate and ran with it, producing a screechy, offensive armpittish odor with a hint of cocoa butter lotion. Shame, as I know so many love it. It was just not meant to be with my skin. Alien was a whole other …

Fragrances - Dolce&Gabbana - Light Blue Eau Intense

4.0

1 month ago

I must admit, I am surprised by the 3 lippy average rating on here. I got curious about this one because I had a sample of the original Light Blue and while I found it really lovely on initial spray, it faded ridiculously quickly. I got two hours wear out of it at most. However, I was fortunate enough to get a sample of Eau Intense in last year's Sephora holiday perfume sampler kit, and I …Read more
