Put down the KvD. I see you there with your ABH. No.

It's time to take the plunge and try these liquid lipsticks too!

I don't think I've ever been this satisfied with a makeup purchase in my entire life, I was expecting to like these after reading reviews, but with the first swipe of Redrum I was absolutely in love and knew I needed MOAR

Wearing …

Mascara - GUERLAIN - Maxi Lash Mascara

May/29/2015

This stuff. Is. The business. I had never even heard of this mascara until I picked it as a sample from Nordstroms because I've been looking to try some new ones. Best. Choice. Ever.

I've been using Maybelline Full n Soft for years now, and was moderately satisfied, but this is everything I have ever wanted in a mascara. (I still use Full n Soft for errand running days or …

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Buck

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2015

As an owner of UD's Naked palette, I was curious as to which shadow I'd hit pan on first...While the palette has several of my long-time favorite shades in it (Smog, Sin, and Half-baked), I hit pan on Buck first! While many consider UD to be a purveyor of wild and unique colors, they also produce equally fabulous "every day" colors...like Buck!

I have been …

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Ballet Slippers

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2014

Out of all the products I've tried, Essie's Ballet Slippers wins. Not best nail polish, but wins the award for having the most spot-on, accurate reviews on MUA. And a lot of them. I read a ton of them...and then I ignored my gut feeling as I bought it last week because Mademoiselle (a great Essie polish, unlike this one) was out of stock. I really encourage you to save your money …Read more

Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick

5.0

Jun/16/2014

Completely in love with this product, and I'll be looking to pick up a few more shades in the next couple weeks!

I bought this in Pink in Paris, an "aggressively fresh" pink....very difficult to describe the color, as the pigmentation is unlike any lippie I've used before. It is intense, making the color last for up to 4 hours on me with eating and drinking …

Jun/09/2014

I've tried a dozen different cleansers, and this one is my favorite by far. (cleansers I've tried include Cetaphil, Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser, Clinique Rinse Off Wash, Olay Foaming Face Wash, Lancome Creme Radiance, Clinique Liquid Facial Soap, Aveeno Clear complexion, and Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser)

The main thing I look for in a cleanser is the overall …

Mascara - essence - Lash and Brow Gel Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/30/2014

Overall, I'd say nothing to write home about, but it's worth the couple dollars to give this brow gel a try.

I love that it leaves my brows looking very natural and well-groomed, my brows almost look...dewy? Shiny, but in a nice, healthy hair way. It never makes them crispy, crunchy and it doesn't leave a film or white cast like many of the gels I've used …

Concealers - L'Oreal Paris - Touche Magique Dark Circle Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2014

This is a great illuminating concealer that doesn't sparkle or noticeably shimmer, and it was scent free. I would say it has about medium coverage, but is a thin enough formula to layer it without getting cakey. It is smooth and easy to blend with either a brush, sponge, or fingers. I use it primarily on my dark circles and purple veins on my eyes, but it actually works pretty great for …Read more

This is everything that I wanted CG Clump Crusher to be...and more!
There's so much that I love about this mascara. Starting with the packaging, which is an attractively designed silver and black tube...probably the best looking mascara I've owned, which is saying something. Definitely something nice looking to have in my MU collection, rather than juvenile neon colors or tacky …

Hair - L'Oreal Paris - Elnett Hairspray

4.0

Dec/31/2013

I would love to love this hairspray, but I just can't! Before buying, I checked plenty of reviews and compared it against tons of other hairsprays. I noticed warnings about Elnett's....fragrance....but I ignored them. I generally don't mind fragranced products. Even if it smells awful, I generally bear through it until it fades, if the product performs well enough other than that …Read more
