Why is the brush so wide on these?? It is literally not possible not to paint all over your skin with the extra wide brush. The formula is ok, nothing super special, but the wide brush is a killer. For the same price as Essie and available next to one another at the drugstore, it's a very easy decision between the two.

IN LOVE IN LOVE IN LOVE. This shade is beyond stunning. The wearing power on its own honestly surprised me- it does pretty well, especially for a drugstore lipstick. That said, for extra help that's still on a budget, wearing this over the NYX lip lingerie in Embellishment is an awesome combo.

Perfect fall lippie! Such a stunning color. Also- I had read that the finish was a …

IN. LOVE. I've recently begun a transition from toxic, chemical-filled products to more natural ones. I expected a lot of trial and error along the journey. I was looking for a product to tame my frizzy, curly hair and ultimately chose to try this product. I love Dr. Bronner's in general for the short list of organic ingredients. For $8 I figured that even if the product didn't …Read more

This mascara is not going to be for everybody. In fact, it probably won't be for many people. But those who love it, will LOVE. IT. It is for those looking for a very specific mascara, which I've been trying for years to find but have never quite gotten right. This formula is super wet, but buildable if you're patient and give each coat enough time to slightly dry before piling …Read more

How has no one reviewed these yet?? Crazy! So, right at launch I started seeing the shade 'Sad Girl' all over Instagram, and was instantly obsessed. It is a super matte liquid lipstick with sparkles in it. And it WORKS! It looks so stunning, so I ordered it ASAP. I also got the color American Doll which is described as a "retro, blue-toned red".

The wear on …

I think the key with wet mascaras is you really need to be a pro with application- if you don't have your technique down, yes, you will get clumps. There are many ways to combat them to make a great formula work for you- I saved my Benefit They're Real! brush and cleaned it off, and I use that to comb through my lashes after each coat of whatever mascara I use.

That said, I …

Treatments (Face) - L'Oreal Paris - Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher

I'm just about to finish up my second bottle of this stuff. I can't really tell WHAT it does to my skin, all I know is that I like my skin a lot more when I use this than when I don't. It seems to amplify the benefits of my moisturizer, and I feel like my skin is softer and smoother. Paired with the Pore Vanisher as a primer before foundation makes for a pretty flawless face.

I want to add a disclaimer here before I begin my review: I am not reviewing this product as it compares to a gel manicure. I am writing a review of this as a normal nail polish.

Personally, this stuff is by far the best drugstore nail polish I've ever purchased. It blew my mind in some respects. I initially bought two shades, Showtime (kind of a cornflower/almost royal blue) …

When I first used this mascara, I hated it. I made a mess, it got all over my eyelid because of how flimsy the brush is, and I was ready to return it. I decided to test it out several times before jumping to any conclusions, and my overall impression is that if you can be patient with the product, it can look amazing.

I am no mascara newbie. I am a fiend, and I try different …

I bought this product last year, wasn't sure about it, returned it and got a different brand, which I ended up returning and buying a lighter shade of the Lock-It which I ultimately stuck with. Turns out I just had too dark of a shade.

This stuff is PERFECT for fall and winter. It's a little heavy for spring and summer during the day, but works at night. Yes, this product …
