Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/13/2014

I bought Rose On and On; the color in the tube is a pretty medium rosy pink, but after I applied, the dry down caused it to turn much brighter than expected. So next time I first applied a thin layer of foundation to my lips & then the stain - better, the dry down was much more muted & closer to the color in the tube. It did leave a subtle pretty stain for a/b 3-4 hours, but the finish …Read more

Hair Treatments - ULTA - Ultimate Shine Luminous Clear Glaze

1.0

Nov/22/2013

WORST. ULTA PRODUCT. EVER. If I could give negative lippies I would!

Got this for free w/an Ulta Rewards certificate & had high hopes as it promised to "add the shine & silkiness of a professional salon glaze." I had never used a glaze before so I had no idea what to expect but my first impressions were horrible: it was thin, runny & smelled terrible. …

Dry Shampoo - Got2b - Rockin' It Encore Fresh Dry Shampoo

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/13/2013

The can stopped spraying out actual product about half-way through the can; it still sprayed the strong citrus scent, but no actual powder or whatever it is that absorbs the oil. When it was working, I wasn't really impressed w/the results anyway, I'd say it was just mediocre at absorbing oil. I also found this to be rather difficult to shampoo out, no matter how many times I …Read more

Polishes - Essie - In the Cab-ana

Aug/04/2013

Fabulous shade for Summer - it reminds me of the Caribbean Sea. I totally agree w/Br0wnEyes that when I wear this I can't stop staring at my nails! The formula is amazing, almost a 1 coater & so fluid, smooth & easy to apply. Blues are notorious for staining nails, but I don't get that w/this as long as I use base coat. The color & formula are just wonderful, it's …Read more

Other - Colgate - Optic White

Sep/02/2012

Having had great success w/whitening strips in the past, I was hoping that this paste would be a more convenient method of whitening, since it supposedly contains the same ingredients as strips. I did not see any noticeable whitening or brightening results, even after use of two full tubes. I did, however, develop major gum/teeth sensitivity to cold foods/drinks. In all fairness, I did have …Read more

Polishes - REVLON - Nail Enamel in Sheer Seafoam

Created with Sketch.

May/14/2012

This is probably one of the sheerest nail polishes I've ever used, I originally had to apply a/b 5 coats to even see a slight tinge of color. I looked online & found some people had luck w/tweaking it using white & teal cremes, so I tried it out. First I added 2 drops of Sally Hansen White On & 1 drop of Sinful Colors Savage - better, but still too sheer. I repeated this …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Barefoot in Blue

Created with Sketch.

Apr/11/2012

Barefoot in Blue was a limited edition shade & part of the TOMS One Day Without Shoes 2012 campaign in which Essie gave away 15K bottles of polish on Facebook. I was surprised when it arrived, considering I never win anything, & after testing it out I thought, "Wow, this really reminds me of China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le." So I swatched both side by side & while they …Read more

Polishes - SinfulColors - Olympia

Mar/30/2012

While in Walgreens, I stumbled upon Sinful Olympia & immediately thought that it looks just Essie Navigate Her. I even snuck a small swatch of both on my nail (I know, I know but come on, who hasn't?) & couldn't notice much of a difference at all so I bought it. When I came home, I swatched on my right-hand (my test of a decent polish -- since I'm right-handed I swatch …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Tart Deco

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2012

Oh how I wanted to love Tart Deco (TD) - it's a super pretty coral-orange-peach color, absolutely perfect for Spring/Summer. It looks lighter in the bottle, yes, but although it applies more orange than I expected, it somehow flattered my super pale skin, especially in the sun/natural light. The formula, however, is just terrible - a streaky hot mess, by far the worst Essie I've ever …Read more

Polishes - Maybelline New York - Express Finish - Posy Pink

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2012

I bought Posy Pink (a medium carnation pink creme) & Tulip Tango (a bright pinky coral creme) from the Limited Edition Spring 2012 Collection. These are my first Maybelline polishes & definitely my last! The first thing I noticed was the brush - ugh, it is TERRIBLE!! It's too stiff or something, I couldn't apply the polish evenly, either using thin or thicker coats. Also …Read more
