Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

I got a sample size of this eyeliner in black. It’s good— waterproof, very black, and I do like the brush tip— but it’s not worth the price. I will stick to buying the NYX or Essence versions, which are just as good and cost just a few dollars.

I am a big fan of the original Perfect Rouge formula, and I was skeptical of this new lipstick, but I LOVE it and wish they would make more shades. I have 227, sleeping dragon, a bright orangey red on me. It goes on truly like a gel, doesn’t dry my lips at all, and stays on even after a meal. I wish they would expand the shades since right now it’s mostly light pinks and a good range of reds. …Read more

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Caviar Stick Eye Colour (All Colors)

1 month ago

I got a mini version of this in amethyst in a Sephora set, and it’s become my go-to one and done shadow. I add some eyeliner, mascara, and I’m good to go. This blends easily but you do have to be quick as it sets very quickly. It’s a great beginner eyeshadow or for travel since you need little time and no primer with it. I plan to pick up more shades next time they come out with minis since I …Read more

I had a salon manicure with Zip Me Up, which is mint. The color wore for 13 days (I removed it because of a self-inflicted chip). This is pretty impressive for a non-gel manicure for me. Application was very VERY streaky, but evened our with a second coat, so I don’t know how I would feel about doing this myself. At about $12 per bottle (plus the cost of the top coat), it’s even more than my …Read more

Lip Gloss - Laura Mercier - Lip Glace - Baby Doll

I received a sample size of this gloss in a Sephora lip set. It’s just “okay” for me. The color might be best on lighter-coloring people. It’s a semi-sheer peachy pink with sparkle on me. Wear time is less than my favorite Buxom lip glosses, and the texture is not really sticky at all to me. It’s a pretty gloss, but it’s nothing special, although I can see how it might be on some people.

It took me a few minutes and a few minutes of frantically watching videos to get the hang of this, but once I did, I loved it! I was looking for an alternative to waxing my upper lip at home, which I find to be messy, and it requires equipment that I can’t bring with me on a trip. Waxing also makes my skin break out sometimes. This works really well and reminds me of threading. It’s portable …Read more

Hair Removal - Unlisted Brand - Braun Silk Epil 7 Epilator - Model 7681

This is my first epilator, purchased because a blogger raved about it. I usually shave (legs, armpits), wax (upper lip, legs on occasion, bikini line), and will tweeze stray hairs. I found it appealing to get waxing results at home and with less mess, and I was really interested in being able to get rid of that underarm "shadow" from my dark hair follicles. So far, I love it, but I …Read more

Lipstick - Buxom - Va-Va Plump Shiny Liquid Lipstick

4.0

I'm surprised at the bad reviews. I have this in "Wine Me", which is really a bold pink on me. It applies fairly shiny, lasts through a meal for me, and becomes almost a stain as it wears off. I will admit that I don't have many liquid lipsticks, because I tend to not like them, but I do find myself reaching for this one. I don't think it's hydrating, but it is …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Drybar - Drybar: Detox Dry Shampoo

I got this in a holiday kit along with Triple sec and Prep Rally. The smell is an overwhelming Grandma perfume that sticks around for a long time. This does do a great job at absorbing oil for my very fine hair. It is white, but I shake well, spray, let it sit for a minute, then work the powder into my roots with my fingers (takes less than 30 seconds). This gives my hair great texture and …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Trader Joe's - Nourish Shea Butter Hand Cream

5.0

My absolute favorite hand cream for winter and my "dupe" for L'Occitane hand creams (which are about $12 for one ounce). This cream runs about $5 for a three ounce tube. It is maybe lightly scented, but seems to me to have more of a scent from the oils in the cream. It is not offensive or noticeable to me. It moisturizes well, and does leave a little coating If you use it …Read more
