Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

16 days ago

I don't get the hype on this. It does make my lashes look thick and long, but it tends to clump and the brush makes it hard to get the mascara applied evenly to all my lashes. It will also spatter. Lord help you if you try to apply it in a hurry. Twice I have been late because I was desperately trying to comb through my lashes after I got on too much (which is easy to do.) Once you do that …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Telescopic Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/15/2018

It does lengthen without bulk. But there isn't a waterproof version, so it smudges. The little brush can get too much mascara on it, so you have to wipe it down every time. And since I found out L'Oreal isn't cruelty-free, I've been looking for substitutes.

Mascara - wet n wild - Mega Length Waterproof Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/15/2018

I wanted to like this. It made my lashes long without also making them thick (I have hooded eyes so heavy volumizing mascaras are not the best look on me), it's cruelty-free, it's cheap. But it is a really "wet" mascara and takes forever to dry. If you sneeze after you've just applied it, or blink, you will have a ring of mascara dotted around your eyes. And weirdly …Read more

Hair Color - Unlisted Brand - Madison Reed

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2017

I've tried Madison Reed twice. The kit itself is pretty cool--two pairs of nice sturdy gloves, a cleansing wipe, a packet of barrier cream and a cap, plus a couple of little packets of shampoo and conditioner. The cap may not contain your hair if it is very thick, as I found out when it suddenly popped off after a prolonged struggle to get it on in the first place. Madison Reed is gentler …Read more

Hair - Shea Moisture - Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

3.0

Mar/13/2017

This smells delicious, feels like cake batter, and it makes my long, super-thick, coarse, dry, wavy hair soft. But it doesn't have much hold, it doesn't help with frizz, and it actually adds volume, which I most definitely do not need since my hair is already too thick.

Concealers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Cover Everything Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2016

It's not bad. It doesn't make me gush in awe of its wonders, but on the whole I like it. I've spent a lot more on concealers that didn't work any better. I was looking for something creamier and with more coverage than I get from wand concealers. I was in that transition stage where your skin is still a little darker from summer but not quite as pale as it will get in winter …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Waterpoof

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/21/2016

I think this is one of the best mascaras I've used, and I hope L'Oreal never quits making it. This is the longest my lashes have ever been, and they're thick, and I really don't have to wear eyeliner. Doesn't smudge. It IS very hard to get off, which is why I'm taking off a lippie. I don't like having to scrub my tender eye skin that much. I've never cared …Read more

Blush - Hard Candy - Cheeky Tints

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/21/2016

Got the lighter pink (Doll, I think?). It looks very pigmented and bright in the tube, but there is no color; it's beyond "sheer." It's more of a sheen. I put it on and...nothing. Not even a hint of color. You can't build it for more color because it's sticky and since it does have that sheen, your cheeks will just look shiny, not pink. Maybe a darker color would …Read more

Styling Products - Not Your Mother's - Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/03/2016

This stuff does nothing. Nothing. I applied it to my thick, coarse, wavy/curly hair and I got texture all right--the texture of cotton candy. I think it even actively took the curl out of my hair, which exploded as though I were in a humid jungle, not on a beach. I couldn't wait to get home and wash it out. And that's when the real fun began, because although this couldn't seem to …Read more

Styling Products - LUSH - Dirty Hair Styling Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2016

Let me start off by saying I have very thick, coarse, long (to mid-back) wavy/curly hair, and I am still learning the best way to use this for my hair type. Judging from the reviews and my experience, I would say it's probably a better product for short, fine or normal hair.

It isn't a cream; it is a paste. It will stick your hair together like glue, which is what it's …
