Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Dating a Royal

3.0

May/10/2008

A creamy blue. That's about it. I lurve blue np because it is dark enough to not "offend" while not being a tired black or vamp. I so miss OPI's Sahara Sapphire which was more metallic blue that I crave.

I'll take the recs to use Heartbreaker over it and see if I'll change my mind.

And a $1 increase on OPI? No one is that good.

Skincare - Body - Vaseline - Vitalizing Gel Body Oil, With Brazillian Nut and Almond Oils

4.0

Jan/28/2008

Have been using this only about a week but I have to admit, it does wonders for me in the harsh winter. I have been hesitant to use oils and such because of the break-out factor. But so far, so good.

I put it on right after the shower, while my skin is still wet. I haven't had the problem of the product staining clothes. Hopefully, this will be a HG for me. I'd really like …

Conditioner - Matrix - color smart Protective Luminating System Conditioner

1.0

Jan/19/2008

I admit, I picked up a liter of this conditioner at the drugstore for the rock bottom price of $6.50. That's about the only good thing about this product.

I can't believe THIS is a Matrix product. It is watery and does absolutely nothing in the way of conditioning. (My hair is thick and wavy .... not sure if maybe this would work on another hair texture. But with this being …

Hair - Sunsilk - ThermaShine Detangling Shine Spray

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/25/2007

First things first. This is not a 'shine' spray. It is strictly for detangling. If it adds a bit of shine, that's a bonus.
But as a detangler, it more than serves its purpose. And at around $3 per bottle, it is affordable.
I stock up on this stuff, especially when Sunsilk gives away $2 off coupons. As a detangler, this product works as well or better than any salon …

Polishes - OPI - Catherine the Grape

Aug/09/2007

Catherine the Grape, from OPI’s Russian collection, is a plum purple with gold shimmer (although I’ve heard some describe the shimmer as ‘bronze’). Regardless, this is a rich, beautiful color that will be perfect for autumn.
The first coat was a bit streaky, but a second coat really makes it work.
The color is reminiscent of another OPI favorite of mine, Route Beer Float. However …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Scene 1

3.0

Jan/02/2007

This is a very pretty pink eyeshadow. A velvet, like has a hint of shimmer. However, it is nearly the same shade as Pink Venus (which I also own). I pair this (and Pink Venus) with Cranberry for a warm, almost sunset-y looking eye. It is a very pretty, almost cotton candy pink but goes on warm. But, again, if you have Pink Venus, don't bother getting Scene 1. They are that close with PV …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Russe

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2007

Since MAC discontinued my favorites Modum and Isis, I've been looking for a cool, grayish pink. For some reason the shade works on my olive skin. Russe is a lustre and part of a new MAC collection (forgive me, the name of said collection escapes me at this time). Russe is as close as I've found to my discontinued babies. A cool pink, a bit paler, in my opinion, but nice. I pair it with …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Espresso Your Style

3.0

Dec/05/2006

The color is quite pretty. A deep brown that is will work for those who are over the black polish that has dominated lately. Yet, as with many OPI products, it chips terribly and quickly. I used this polish at 2 p.m. and within three hours the color was chipping off of not one, not two, but three nails. I don't notice this with ALL OPI colors I've tried, but sure did this time …Read more

OK, I giving this glosses a strange review ... I purchased the smaller tubes for $1.25 during a B&BW sale so you can't beat the price.
I got about ...um ... OK, I bought 8 of them in different shades (figuring if I can't wear them one of my friends Christmas stocking is getting stuffed a bit earlier this year). The ones I've tried have been super sheer and pretty. The …
