Blush - Maybelline New York - Dream Bouncy Blush (All Shades)

Honestly, what a stupid concept for a product. I'll admit I thought the whole "bouncy" texture was amusing and cute when I first bought this, but it not practical! I can barely pick up any product when I use a brush, and using fingers isn't much easier. This is so weird to blend... the consistency is jelly-silicone-y and it applies as a kind of smear of shimmer/color …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Vivids - Electric Orange 880

It's pretty, it's surprisingly wearable, it's UNIQUE. As the name implies, it's a bright and vivid orange, but it's actually quite easy to work with. It doesn't immediately go on opaque but you can build it up to the level of orange you'd like. This looks so trendy with a simple winged liner and mascara. It's also a little glossy and hydrating, which is a …Read more

LOVE THIS. One of the only under-eye MU products I use. Here's why... Traditional under eye concealers never fail to cake up or form dry patches under my eyes. They often look quite dull as well, sometimes making me look even more tired than before application!

A few members on MUA recommended this Maybelline Lumi as a concealer + highlighter, and I'm so glad I purchased it! …

Hair Treatments - Redken - Extreme Anti-Snap Anti-Breakage Leave-In Treatment

Aug/01/2013

I apply this mainly to my ends after showering while my hair is damp. Be careful of using too much- I've found it can become a bit sticky which can actually cause a few breakages. I get good results by using this 1-2 times a week. I have color treated hair and have noticed it not as dry as it typically would be, especially at the ends. A bit fewer split ends/ dead ends as well.
But a …

Mascara - Max Factor - 2000 Calorie Dramatic Volume Mascara

4.0

Aug/01/2013

It's a good mascara, but nothing special. The one impressive thing about it is how it seems to accentuate the curl in my lashes, and holds the curl pretty well. It is volumizing but borderline clumpy (more so lashes sticking together), and adds minimal length. I will definitely be using it until its finished, but don't see myself repurchasing. There are cheaper mascaras that are far …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - One by One Volum' Express [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/30/2013

My HG mascara for pretty natural looking lashes. It lengthens the most out of all of my mascaras, and is the only one that separates my lashes so they don't stick together (because of this, it's not very thickening). This is perfect for a clean & simple eye look with LOTS of length to your lashes rather than thickness/volume.

A lipstick worth having! Bought this on a whim for 3-something at walmart, and I'm so impressed. It's a touch darker than my natural lip color, and I see that for many others it's a MLBB. On my fair skin, it's a brownish pink, which is just what I was looking for. Kind of like my lip color but a little dressed up- first thought that comes to mind is that it looks simple & …Read more

Jul/28/2013

Oh boy I can't believe I spent $25 on a damn SPONGE. It does give a nice blended/smooth effect to the liquid foundations or even BB creams I apply using it. But it's just a bit of a hassle to go run it under water until it absorbs and expands. It also wastes quite a bit of product! I end up having to use more, and see a lot of it trapped in the sponge itself. Half the reason why it …Read more

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

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2013

I'm very picky with my mascaras. Formula can't be too wet or too dry. Lashes need to be in a happy medium for thickness/volume.
I was definitely surprised by this one. Falsies is high up there on my list and I'm about to repurchase it. It gives my lashes enough lift and volume without looking obnoxious or clumpy. Formula isn't too wet so my lashes don't stick …

Shampoo - LUSH - BIG

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2013

Okay, for starters: Do not use daily. Don't use if you're concerned about your color-treated hair fading.
This shampoo is super clarifying, as others said. So it's good for maybe a weekly basis thorough cleaning (focus definitely on the roots, not your ends- you'll dry them up like nothing!). Because it strips your hair, it also strips your color fairly quickly so if you …
