Polishes - Sally Hansen - Mermaid's Tale

This polish is a sheer navy base with blue and green hex glitter and blue microglitter. I layered it over OPI's Venice the Party? and it's beautiful! I didn't have any issues with the formula. The glitter clumps a tiny bit, but no more than usual. I would imagine that if you tried to get this opaque on its own you would wind up with a mess, but it layers really well.

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Lovechild

2.0

Jun/24/2016

Lovechild is the prettiest pink, but I find it completely unwearable. It makes my teeth look SO YELLOW. I can't speak to longevity because every time I've put it on I've wiped it off immediately. But I still have it, because the pink is so darn pretty I can't bring myself to part with it. I keep hoping I'll find a combination that will make it work, but so far no luck.

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Different Lipstick - Glazed Berry

I really like this lipstick. It's a pretty shade of pink with shimmer. I don't find it frosty or metallic at all (I hate frosty/metallic finishes because they emphasize my lip lines). It's not drying and it feels nice on the lips. The wear time is just okay but it fades evenly, which is a big plus in my book.

Polishes - REVLON - ColorStay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel - Sky's the Limit

4.0

Sky's the Limit is a very pretty sky blue shimmer with almost a foil finish. It's a Gel Envy polish, but I didn't notice much difference from normal nail polish (I used the Sinful Colors gel top coat instead of the Revlon one, though). Maybe a little less chipping? It did hold up pretty well. My knock on it is that I needed 3-4 coats to get it opaque.

Top/Base Coats - L.A. Girl - Quick Dry Top Coat

1.0

Jun/14/2016

There is nothing "quick-dry" about this top coat. I put it on before work, thinking 10-15 minutes should be sufficient drying time. Off I go. 6 HOURS later I look down at my nails, and they're all messed up. And not only are they all messed up, the polish is still soft enough to dent! Granted I used a lot of hand sanitizer throughout the day, but seriously. Thank goodness I got it …Read more

Polishes - Essie - A Cut Above

A Cut Above goes on so easily. Great glitter pay-off and no dabbing or manipulation required. It is a little thick, but that's the nature of dense glitter nail polish. The color is lovely too: a soft, muted pink. Great for an accent nail!

Highlighters - bareMinerals - Warm Radiance

Warm Radiance was SUPER orange on my fair skin. There's nothing wrong with the formula, but the color... I used it once and immediately banished it to the "to-sell" pile. If you want one of these and have pale skin, I would recommend Pure Radiance instead.

If you're willing to put in some work, this polish is GORGEOUS. It's a blue jelly packed with dark blue glitter. The glitter also has a green flash to it, and overall the polish just has a ton of dimension. It was pretty much opaque in 2 coats, but in the sun I could see a bunch of bald patches I needed to fix (I did this before top coat). The formula is pretty thick because of all the …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - Crave

Crave is my absolute favorite eyeliner (which is saying something because I have a ton). The shade is almost black, but not quite, and it has both brown and gray tones to it. Perversion was terrifying harsh on my fair skin, and Crave is perfect. I put it on my upper waterline and it stays all day without any fallout. It also pairs really well with brown-black mascara.

Palettes - Smashbox - Be Discovered Eyeshadow Palette 2012

I was disappointed with most of the shades in this palette. With the exception of Champagne, Mist, and Pebble, they are all powdery and/or poorly pigmented. Rosewater, Opal, and Lilac don't really show up at all (and I have very fair skin). Bliss and Adobe had poor pigmentation and made a powdery mess.
Shades are: Bliss, Rosewater, Opal, Mist, Adobe, Champagne, Pebble, and Lilac.
