Eye Shadow - Buxom - Suede Seduction Eyeshadow Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/16/2016

Pros:
good pigmentation
easy to blend
easy to build

Cons:
Brush is poke-y and doesn't do justice to the nice matte shadows
same amount of product as naked 2 basics, but costs $11 more

Overall:
Slightly pricey palette, feels somewhat cheap, brush is cheap. These are not the kinds of shadows you have to be careful with/ these shadows are …

Brows - IT Cosmetics - Brow Power

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/09/2016

This is my HG brow product because it doesn't give me acne or folliculitis, and it helped to grow back my eyebrows (from scarring due to acne, folliculitis and overplucking).
I have extremely problematic skin due to an immune system condition. 99% of cosmetics cause infections in my oil glands and hair follicles. This product has hydrogenated castor oil, but I received a sample with an …

Fragrances - Dolce&Gabbana - Light Blue Eau de Toilette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/09/2016

Pros:
I always keep a mini of this around because it is very inoffensive and does not become overwhelming in the summer (I live in a desert).
It lasts VERY well for an EDT. Better than some edp!
My skin makes every scent I wear extremely warm, but the Light Blue is still extremely wearable despite my skin's chemistry.
Cons:
Everyone has this scent/ not unique …

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Basics

-1 lippie because the shadows can sometimes oxidize on me (I live in the desert and use a primer). frisk especially will start to look as if it is floating above my skin. Frisk is also my favorite of the shades. very creamy, I just can't use too much in the summer.

I actually think $30 is a decent price for a year's worth of cool tone neutral mattes. Should last you a year …

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Opening Act Lash Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2015

I received a sample of this and finished it off. I decided I needed another, and would write up a review.
I have used lash primers for just under 2 years. I used the old tarte multiplEYE one and some of the drugstore double ended ones.
I like Tarte's opening act the best. It doesn't dry as quickly, and doesn't break out my sensitive, acne-prone skin.
Doing one eye …

Palettes - Urban Decay - AMMO Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2015

Overall:I had the second version (newer) of the ammo palette. I wish they would make a new one. I purchased this and used it for one year. After great use, I've retired it and moved on to Naked2. I would not recommend purchasing this palette (either the 1st or 2nd release) because it was made so long ago.
Pros: I really enjoyed enjoyed this palette, its design, and the quality …

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Melt (originally in the Build Your Own Palette Quad)

2.0

Aug/10/2015

I received this with my recent sale order from ud.com. It swatched well against my olive skin. I did call UD info and the lady was super helpful. This shade is the new formula, but was produced Fall 2012 and is coming up on its shelf life. I bought the palette for travel, so am not upset that the eyeshadow is expiring/expired.

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Clear Brow Gel

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/09/2015

Overall: this is the toughest brow gel I've tried. The ingredients could be worse. Could be better.
Pros: Only brow product ever that can get my crazy German hairs that grow straight out at the inner corner and top of the arch and grow looong, it's amazing. Granted, I have to take the tip, with the extra gloop of product on it and press the tip down every stubborn hair.
Cons: …

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - lights, camera flashes! statement mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2015

this might be one of my all time favorites. Gives me baby doll lashes and I don't think it made my acne prone skin break out (any more than usual). so much better than the lights, camera lashes ( and better than sex, in my opinion) that gets everywhere. much better brush for naturally long thick lashes. holds a curl decently.
