Jun/14/2011

thought i liked this after trying in the store.. but, not for me after all. tried it today on eye area and after full day this is how it wore:

AM: bright and sparkly, the kind i like- super tiny micro specks that catch light, not one big area of metallic sheen or gleam.

PM: by late afternoon, it looks flat. i don't know how to describe it but it's not pearly and …

May/16/2010

i'm not a big user of hair products.usually wash and air dry-.no styling.but by no means am i a stranger to styling aids.This freezing hair spray was a waste of money.

First and foremost, it did NOT, not even remotely, serve as hairspray. My hair in no way held any shape after 5 minutes. It was not humid or windy today and though the can says "ultimate in hold" -- …

i really like this brow pencil! i read the positive reviews and chose this when i lost my Shu pencil hard 9 in seal brown. i thought that was as good as it got but i'm glad i lost it on my last trip for it forced me to take a look at what else was out there. the shu was an ok color match but didn't have the staying power i wanted.
My hair is naturally black that i highlight …

Loose Powders - Urban Decay - Razor Sharp Ultra Definition Finishing Powder [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2010

this could be holy grail for me- except for a couple of issues. First, this powder has color to it. it's not really "flesh-toned" nor does it disappear into your skin, say, as a universal color. It almost has a reddish base to it. I wear mineral sunscreen which lends a paler finish over my winter tone (no tan at all- but it's almost funinthesun time!) and this powder shows up …Read more

Thank you MUAers! i just ran to get my black colorstay liner pencil to check the other end. lo and behold, there really is a sharpener under that cap. i can't believe it - i've used this for a long while and never knew this. i'm quite tickled at this moment. i learn a lot here...
i like the black for nights and times i want a strong eye and pale or nude lips. it's a …

Jun/16/2009

this product came out at the perfect time for me. started the hunt for a concealer to use over just sunscreen and finished with a dusting of finishing powder (to blend it all in and set the sunscreen.) b/c summer's starting and want a light, easy routine and look.

Started at Sephora trying all the brands i'd narrowed down from MUA reviews that i thought would work for oily …

Liquid - REVLON - SPA Age Defying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/18/2009

to start, i don't use mineral makeup b/c it accentuates my pores as the day goes on. they start off great as it blurs imperfections and provides for an airbrushed look, however, by midday, it makes my pores more pronounced and turns shiny. To me, this product is a liquid mineral foundation with the same result as powder mineral makeup.

Use: the liquid comes out in a slightly …
