I love these lip lacquers. I own half the colors and if they were to come out with more or limited edition ones I would totally look into getting them.

The price isn't $0.99 but I get them for $5 (sometimes $4 with a sale) and they work better than some $30+ lipsticks I have bought.

The packaging is really unique and slightly edgy. There is a window right below the …

What can I say, I was suckered in by the parfait layers of this gloss.

This could be a nice gloss, but there's almost zero pigment and the applicator doesn't hold nearly enough product on it so I'm have to re-dip the wand around 4 times to get enough to cover my lips.

To mix the layers I took a wooden skewer and stirred the crap out of the gloss. At first I …

I bought this on Black Friday a few years ago. I forced myself to wear it because it was so expensive but I really can't stand this lipstick.

My friend has a red color of this lipstick and I absolutely love it on her. It wears beautifully on her, just wish it did the same with me.

The color is nice, very neutral on my more pigmented lips and has a MLBB look to …

So this product is amazing. I got a generous sample sized tube in a gift and use it for days when my skin feels dry or irritated. It's perfect for my winter skin.

It's takes off make up effortlessly and rinses away clean. All you are left with is soft skin that isn't dry or tight.

However, the price tag on this is pretty high (although you do get a lot of …

Eyes - shu uemura - False Lashes- Smoky Layers

May/26/2013

I bought these lashes long ago when Shu Uemura was still selling in brick and mortar stores in the US. That was at least 6 years ago. I have used them countless times (at least 40) and absolutely love them. They are the perfect mix of dramatic lashes with natural lashes. They are also slightly uneven to make for more realistic lashes. They just bring so much attention to the eye without …Read more

So I was very excited to try this palette because the blues looks gorgeous and the brown and champagne color were very pretty as well.

The blues looked pretty much the same on my lids when I put them on and the brown didn't show up so well.

I liked the champagne color but don't think the entire cost is worth one shadow.

When my boyfriend came home after …

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - A Kiss Of Olive Oil & Lemon

I was very excited to try this one out and even more excited when I finally found it.

The texture is very slick and very buttery. It glides on smoothly and leaves a slight gloss to the lips. My lips feel instantly softer and it does seem to work into the lips rather than stay on the surface.

The scent does not smell like olive oil or lemon to me. It smells more like …

So after Kiehl's broke me out I was hesitant to try another sunscreen even though I need one. I got a deluxe sample of this (just like Kiehl's) and tried it out.

The sample I got is huge and I am actually still using it when I travel. I use the full size at home during the week.

After 2 months of continual use I am in love. It protects without being greasy and …

I found this while digging at the 99 cent store. It was still intact and the gloss in the tube didn't look like it was rancid or separating.

I have to say that this gloss brings me back to my youth when all the girls had lip smackers lip balms.

The gloss is petroleum based and I'm sure there are preservatives in there somewhere which makes for a lip gloss to still …

This is a pretty decent dream concealer. It has a green correcting end and a light colored concealer. The light is too light for me and the green is really green. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to make it work but with a little experimenting I got good results.

First off I blend a dab of the green with a liquid foundation so that it helps the foundation better cover my …
