Primer/ Corrector - wet n wild - Photofocus Natural Finish Setting Spray

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/12/2016

I have never previously used a setting spray. Mostly because I'm cheap and haven't found an affordable one that I wanted to try. They showed up in a few more drugstore brands so I'm hoping I will find one I like that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. This newer Wet N Wild one definitely fits the cheap bill (it retails for around $5) but sadly for reasons I am about to name, it …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon

Feb/28/2016

These are so bad!!! I really want to see if I can return mine because 7 bucks was a crazy price to pay for something so horrible.

I love the original color tattoos so of course I was excited at the concept of them being in stick form. The truth is these couldn't be further from the original formula... they are nothing alike.

I got Lavish Lavender because purples look …

Lotions/ Creams - Palmer's - Coconut Oil Body Lotion

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2016

Ahhhhh! I bought this only because I was under the impression that it would smell just like the coconut oil body wash and honestly the initial sniff from the bottle it did so I grabbed it up. Got it home and applied and there it was. The horrible chemical chocolate scent that I absolutely abhor (bc hate is not a strong enough word) from Palmer's is hiding under the initial coconut note. …Read more

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - aerin rose lip conditioner

Dang Sephora and their deluxe samples. I totally fell in love with this balm but not really up on the prospect of paying $28 for a full sized tube.

I love the soft pink packaging, the delicate rose scent, and the fact that this stuff clings to my lips and leaves them feeling totally moisturized. It's great in bare lip days and before bed.

It is super sticky …

Lip Gloss - Lancôme - Lip Lover Dewy Intense Lip Color

Feb/12/2016

Ahhh so nice. I love how luxurious this feels on my lips. It is soft and plush and moisturizing without being sticky and thick or too thin and greasy. I was surprised by the amount of color it provided as well. I have 355 Framboise Etoile and it is a gorgeous pop of warm strawberry color that has a jelly like finish.. pigmented but see through, which is one of my favorite looks, especially …Read more

Fragrances - Demeter - Patchouli

1.0

Feb/11/2016

If you actually buy this, one can safely assume that you're into patchouli. One does not buy something patchouli scented without liking patchouli. So there's that.

I bought this untested, in a Demeter gift set. As it has come to pass I have been disappointed with 98% of everything Demeter I have tried. Mostly because the lasting power of their fragrances is literally 3 …

Lipstick - NYC New York Color - Expert Last Satin Matte Lip Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2016

Here's a great New York Color product that has seem to flew under the radar for a bit. It's only $1.99 and the formula is fantastic. Goes on very creamy and smooth and then sets to a satiny matte finish... not that bone dry liquid matte lip color look... but a soft wearable matte. I love the finish.

I've bought three shades... Smooth Beige, Creamy Mauve, and Red Suede …

Lotions/ Creams - Jergens - Wet Skin moisturizer - all types

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2016

In shower body moisturizers were a thing back about 10 years ago and I noticed skincare brands were bringing them back. I ignored these types of products when they came back out because if it wasn't good the first time, probably not good the second.

Well Jergens is a bit different... it isn't designed to be rinsed off. That is a selling point for me. I first sampled it …

Lipstick - NYC New York Color - Get It All Lip Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2016

It's really surprising to me that one of the best lipstick formula's I've tried in a while is $2.99 and from New York Color. New York Color has slid under the radar for me for a long time... while other drugstore brands have flourished it seems like they have kind of fallen behind. But if they keep putting out products like this, they might just win me back.

This …

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/27/2016

I do love this mascara. It is one I plan to keep in my rotation. It is very affordable ($4-5 at Ulta) and works very well for such a low price. I think the packaging is super cute, but I really wish that Essence would seal their mascara so they can't be opened in store.

This mascara made my lashes nice and fat without compromising length. I liked that the brush is a more …
