Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara

There’s absolutely no reason to pay $20 for this.

What I like: Very black, certainly waterproof and long-wearing, defining.

Don’t like: Let’s be honest, “defining” is like the most basic thing a mascara can do. I have relatively long lashes to begin with yet this did absolutely nothing for them. It had absolutely no lengthening and was impossible to add volume no matter the …

This thing is awesome!
I've been looking for the best brush or sponge for foundation for a very long time. I first invested in the Sephora Pro Airbrush Foundation brush, which I still really like, but it has to be kept very clean to blend well. I got the BeautyBlender, and it leaves a really nice finish, but it doesn't fit into my everyday routine because it takes longer to apply …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Bombshell Volume

Just no.
The packaging is so unnecessarily bulky, I don't know why I bought it in the first place.
One side is a traditional mascara wand and the other is a plastic spiky one like LashBlast Volume... nothing revolutionary.

UPDATE 7/18/14
I try not to throw away products I don't like, just to get some use out of them if I can't return. Well I kept this …

Other - Neutrogena - Deep Clean Oil-Free Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes

Apr/07/2014

After using the first wipe I wanted to throw the whole pack away. Seriously, not even worth it to keep it around as a backup.
It makes no sense to me how awful these are. I expected them to be at least as good as the regular blue package wipes. Oh no. These are so harsh on the skin. They have so much alcohol in them and left my face feeling dry, uncomfortably tight, and irritated from …

Cleansers - Simple - Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes

Apr/07/2014

My HG cleansing wipes. I love these because they don't leave my skin feeling heavy or filmy.

Of course, they also remove makeup really well. When I'm wearing a super-full face this will take it off with almost just one wipe. I usually use a separate eye makeup remover when wearing all the stuff I somehow manage to fit on my eyelids, but when I have my everyday mascara, liner …

Highlighters - theBalm Cosmetics - Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

Apr/02/2014

So richly pigmented and I love the shade. This is the exact tone I want out of a highlighter. It's slightly warm and very smooth.
I only use it at night when I really want an illuminated look because a little of this can go a long way. A light application is key. When I first applied it I kind of packed it on the way I've been used to applying other highlighters and later I noticed …

Makeup Brushes - Urban Decay - Shadow Brush

What a pretty brush. If only it did something.
I was looking forward to getting this brush as a part of the Naked pallette, and have been so disappointed. It is pathetic at picking up product. It's purpose should be to do a good job of adding color to a simple area like the lid, but the bristles are way too uniform. They're lovely to touch, but too thin and silky to get a good grip …

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Line Eyeshadow 'C' Brush

Apr/02/2014

This brush had really surprised me. After picking it up for a few bucks I never would have thought it would become one of my most used brushes. I use it with almost all of my eye shadow looks.
It's absolutely perfect for packing color on to the eyelid, especially if a shadow isn't too pigmented and needs as much help as it can get. I also use it for the highlight underneath my …

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Blush Brush

5.0

Apr/02/2014

Amazing for the price, especially considering it serves multiple purposes.
I ordered it online and was somewhat disappointed because it is much smaller than I expect from a blush brush. The Studio Complexion brush is what I use instead for a traditional blush application. However, this brush is great if you are looking for a concentrated application. The only time I use it for blush is when …

Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Biotin (All brands)

Mar/27/2014

I've been taking biotin on its own or within a hair, nails, and skin complex for over 2 years now. I figure by now I should have a solid opinion about it, and the more I think, the more I have realized I've only kept taking it still hoping to get the awesome results it seems other people have experienced.

From my experience, I can't say that taking it long term will be …
