Eyeliner - Sephora Collection - Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner

Disclaimer: I have very oily lids and most pencils do not make it an hour even with primers. This was no good for me. Sometimes pencils just fade away, but some of them smear. After an hour or two, I have black smears extending several inches below my eyes. Attempting to just wipe it away can make things worse as it just keeps smearing more and more. I got rid of it as it was unusable for …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Gold Bond - Rough & Bumpy Daily Therapy Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I like the light scents of the gold bond lotions and thought this would be the same. It actually smells like cheese. I was immediately filled with regret for purchasing due to the disgusting odor. The first night I wore it to bed, I ended up getting out of bed in the middle of the night to wash it off my arms and put scented lotion on because I couldn't stand the smell anymore. I …Read more

Hair Treatments - Nexxus - Humectress Intensely Hydrating Masque

I have thermally reconditioned hair with bleach highlights and this stuff is incredible. My hair tends to feel nice the day after washing and then gets crispy, puffy and dry as the days go on. My hair stays soft and silky when I use this and does not dry out. It leaves my hair in noticeably better condition. My husband asked if I got my hair done, but all I did is deep condition with this. I …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner 24H - Blackest Black

Oh hell no. I am hesitant to give a negative review given how much love this seems to get, but I can't deny what has been happening on my face for the last several days. The oily lid crew might have to make a special review section because clearly the things that work for most, do not work for us.

Firstly, on my olive skin, it's not really that black. More like a gray …

Top/Base Coats - wet n wild - MegaLast Hard As Ice Top Coat

5.0

10 months ago

This is my go to top coat, even with higher end options around. It gives such a rich, brilliant gloss to all of my polishes. Even my dullest polish becomes something special until this. It is very easy to apply with a nice wide brush. The only issue I have is that it got thick like syrup when the bottle was half finished. I am still using it like that, but I have a feeling that it will …Read more

Styling Products - Ion - Heat Protecting Smoothing Spray

10 months ago

I always see other ladies with big frizzy hair, who show up one day looking sleek and silky and wondered how they did it. I can iron my hair straight but it looks pretty parched when I'm done. Well, now I know how they get silky straight hair - they must use this stuff.

I have tried so many heat protectant and smoothing products and I swear my hair just eats them. It's like …

Skincare - Face - Julep - Boost Your Radiance Reparative Rosehip Seed Facial Oil

I am a big fan of facial oils but this wasn't one of my favorites for my skin. It was thick and just sat on top of my skin. I sometimes like to put a little oil under my concealer but this was way to greasy for that. I was using it before bed and would head to bed with my face looking like it was covered in Crisco, but in the morning, my skin would feel dried out. So overall, it was …

Treatments (Face) - Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate

2.0

11 months ago

I love kiehls as a brand, and I love facial oils - but this wasn't a favorite. Not enough moisture, might even be a bit drying. My skin looked a bit dull and dehydrated. No breakouts, but my skin didn't look good. Was hoping for much more from this oil. I tried the cleansing oil with this and found that to be very drying as well. Back to Fresh Seaberry for me.

Nails - Unlisted Brand - KISS Salon Acrylic French Nail

5.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

I watched a YouTube video from someone who gets 3 weeks out of her nails and followed her instructions of roughing up the surface of the natural nail and wiping it with rubbing alcohol. It took me maybe 10 minutes start to finish and my nails came out so beautiful. You'd never know that I got them at a drugstore for $5. I am used to very short nails and the short length was just right. …Read more

Conditioner - Olaplex - No5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner

3.0

11 months ago

I have fine, dry and wavy hair but a ton of it. My hair dries much bigger and poufier than normal after using Olaplex conditioner and/or shampoo. I was blaming the shampoo for this, but when I started using the conditioner with a different shampoo, I found that both Olaplex s&c have this effect on me (this does not happen with Olaplex 2, which I love).

I usually wash my hair …
