Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Clump Crusher Water Resistant Mascara

2.0

Mar/17/2014

I needed a waterproof or water resistant mascara, and this failed miserably. THIS IS NOT WATER RESISTANT!

It looks great on your lashes, the wand is great, but as soon as your eyes water in the slightest this mascara runs like crazy. It gets in your eyes, which makes your eyes water even more. If it's a rainy day, forget it, you'll end up with black streaks down your face. I …

Lipstick - Lime Crime - Chinchilla

This is an incredible lipstick. I'm NW10, very pale with freckles, cool toned, blue eyes and blonde hair. This lipstick looks lavender gray, actually a darker shade than my natural lip color. Goes on smooth, pleasantly scented, and it's such a unique color. It lasts a long time, and it is flattering even as it wears off through the day.

It is my new favorite lipstick color …

BB Cream - Sleek MakeUP - Be Beautiful Blemish Balm

I wear MAC NW10, Sleek New Skin Revive in Oatmeal.

This is the only BB cream I own, but I love it. It's got the coverage of a foundation but my freckles still show through. Once it dries, the finish is almost powdery. I got this BB cream in Fair and it is a perfect match. I was really surprised it was fair enough to match my fair skin.

I usually try to wear this cream …

Brows - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Castor Oil

Aug/13/2013

This truly did fill in a gap in one of my eyebrows that I'd had for 5+ years.

In the past I've been guilty of over-tweezing my brows. For the past couple years I have been wearing my eyebrows fuller, but one area on my left eyebrow never grew back. It looked like I had a piercing scar.

I've been applying castor oil to my eyebrows, focusing on that one area in …

Concealers - theBalm Cosmetics - TimeBalm Concealer

I really like this concealer, but I can't overlook just how terrible the packaging is. For the price, I really should be getting a thicker, more durable plastic or even glass (as long as it seals tightly). I feel like if I dropped this thin plastic container it would shatter. Some of the reviews here even mention that the container has broken or cracked easily.

This concealer is …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash Mascara LE I See Blue

4.0

Aug/06/2013

This limited edition Great Lash is very vibrant. There's nothing subtle about this shade of blue. It's lighter and more intense than Great Lash in Royal Blue.

I really love this color. It's young, bright, and adds an interesting twist to any eye look. I didn't have any problems with flaking or transferring, and after applying 2-3 layers, each lash was evenly covered …

Eye Shadow - L'Oreal Paris - Wear Infinite Eye Shadow Single

I also got this in 820, Brushed Suede, and loved it. This shade has high marks from women of color, but it also works on very fair skin. I'm NW10 and I use it in the crease and sometimes the outer v.

This is a very warm chocolate color. Warmer and slightly lighter than Nutmeg by Maybelline. Matte finish, blends well, very pigmented.

I got this on sale for $2.50, and …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - ExpertWear Eye Shadow Earthly Taupe Matte Finish

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/06/2013

This is a slightly warm light beige with a matte finish. I love using it as a base over the entire lid. Perfect for a neutral look. I pair this with Nutmeg (also a matte from Maybelline) for a natural day look. Both shadows are just as good as higher end brands.

This shadow lasts all day, is nicely pigmented, and doesn't crease or fade. No fallout, even when using the sponge. It …

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Slim Eye Pencil - 914 Medium Brown

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2013

Excellent eyeliner. Definitely a true medium brown, not too light or too dark. It's creamy, pigmented, and doesn't tug the eye when applying. This liner is also very blendable. I love using this liner instead of black for a smudged in and smokey look all the way around my eyes.

Something to keep in mind is that this liner is not waterproof. It does hold up well, but wears off …

Liquid - Maybelline New York - SuperStay 24HR Makeup - New Version [DISCONTINUED]

Aug/05/2013

For reference, I'm an NW10 with freckles and the occasional break out. I'm oily in the t-zone but dry on the cheeks.

Recently I've been trying out drugstore brand foundations for casual daily wear. I don't always want to use my more expensive and fuller coverage foundations just to run errands for a bit. I picked up this foundation in the lightest shade available …
