Top/Base Coats - GOSH - Matt Effect Top Coat

I love GOSH nail polishes. Great brushes, great application, great wear. As the other reviewer stated, it is a bit pricey for what you get. I didn't get mine on sale and paid the full $7.

I wore this over another GOSH polish (Dusty Rose) and it looked gorgeous on the first day. I put my hands through the ringer on the next day... I grated 8 lemons/limes, chopped and diced …

Polishes - China Glaze - Flying Dragon

Mar/14/2012

I'm giving this a two simply because I love the colour of this in the bottle and on my nails. It makes them look longer, and it flatters my skin tone. I didn't really have a problem with the application; three coats gave me a beautiful colour that didn't look messy or smudged.

I went to bed, woke up and pieces of it have been falling off in huge chunks all day. It's …

First off, I LOVE the colour of this polish.... However, like many of the other reviewers have said, this is streaky and thin. I need 3-4 coats to make this look nice and then I have to sit and do nothing for an hour while it dries... If I do anything before that time is up, the polish smudges.It lasts for about 3 days before this weird 'crackling' happens on the surface of the polish …Read more

This isn't my favourite MAC l/s by any means, but I do enjoy it. I like Lustre finishes, and this one goes on nice and smooth and not too sheer. However, I find that I have to pair it with a coral-toned blush as well (something like Instant Chic from the same collection) or else it comes off way too orangey. I'd buy it again, because I love the way it looks with a neutral eye (think All …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Instant Chic

This is a gorgeous, gorgeous colour. I love the Pret-a-Papier collection but couldn't afford everything, so I got Instant Chic. Some coral-toned shades come off really orangey on my skin, but this looks so pretty. I love that even though it's a sheertone blush it's still pigmented and easily buildable. I just hate that it's a l/e colour.

I've only been using this mascara for a week, but I think that's long enough to say that it's become my HG mascara. I was a bit concerned that I'd have the same raccoon eye problem that so many other reviewers mentioned, especially because I have oily skin, but this definitely is not an issue.
I wore it out to the club last night and it stayed where it was supposed to all …

This is certainly not a MAC quality eyeshadow, but I really like the pigmentation of this one. Unlike some of the reviewers, I find that this blends easily on my skin, especially if I use it with my Too Faced SI. If I don't, the colour doesn't show up quite as well and I find that it's gone 4-5 hours later. I usually apply it with my MAC 226 in the crease and outer v with a colour …Read more

Eye Primer - Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2010

Before I purchased Too Faced SI, I had been using MAC's cream base in Pearl. A lot of shimmer, but it did the trick as a starter. I'm quite fair and have oily-combination skin, so veins tend to show through on my eyelids. Shadow Insurance works so, so well for me. My shadow stays perfect for at least 11 hours before it starts to crease, and I always get good colour pay-off with the …Read more

Eye Shadow - Kat Von D - True Romance Palette in Poetica

Mar/23/2010

This was my first Kat Von D purchase and I don't love OR hate it as a whole. Peanut, Cholita and Missy are really nice colours, and they work well with my Rubenesque Paint Pot from MAC and my Too Faced SI as bases.
I'm not a big fan of the cream shadow, I find that it clumps and sticks in the most uncomfortable way on my lids, which is too bad, because the colour is …

I would buy this shadow again and again. Yes, it's a bit on the pricey side, and true... the colour can easily be duped.. However, the finish of this shadow cannot. It looks amazing on most skin tones, and can be used in so many ways. Favourites include: All over the lid with Shroom as a highlight and Satin Taupe in the crease. And I love, love, LOVE wearing it with my Gentle Lentil …Read more
