Brows - MILANI - Stay Put Brow Color

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/03/2016

All the good reviews here make me think I got the only dud in the batch! I tried the Brunette shade and the color was fine, the texture and application were not. Maybe I'm spoiled by Anastasia Dip Brow because this in comparison was hard in texture, dry, and didn't want to stick to the places on my brow I needed it to go. Pity as I was hoping to save some $$ with a dupe but for me this …Read more

Lip Gloss - Physicians Formula - PH Matchmaker Lip Gloss

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/06/2013

This reminds me of a grown-up high-tech version of those old-school "mood" lipsticks that are whatever color in the tube (blue, green, yellow etc.) that supposedly turn into your perfect pink/red/whatever lipcolor as if by magic! This gloss does that too and looks a lot better in the process, all magic aside :) I waited until this week's $6 off everything PF sale at CVS so I …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner

Mar/21/2013

I think some are missing the point of this liner, no pun intended lol :) and/or may go in expecting this to be more than it is. My understanding is that it's supposed to be smudgy; a kajal-kohl liner for dark exotic smoky eyes like you see in Bollywood. It is not a long-last type by any means but it does an amazing job of being a deep matte smoky-smudgy black, very exotic looking without …Read more

Blush - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio HD Blush (All Shades)

Feb/07/2013

I am quite surprised the review below me said this is sheer... don't know what they were looking at but mine are in NO way sheer. In fact they are very very pigmented! Almost like paint, but not thick, sticky or hard to blend. I have Headliner and Superstar, both pinks, one is more peachy and one is more of a light mauve pink. The rest are all too dark or the wrong shades for my skintone …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - PhotoReady Primer, Shadow and Sparkle

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2013

This was a huge disappointment. The style and shades in the Metropolitan set I got are simply stunning. Too bad the actual shadows suck so much. No matter what brush I used to apply, all I got was a sheer wash of color with a lot of microglitter. The sparkles were the only parts in this that seemed to stick around (pun intended). Not much pigment in the other shades whatsoever, even the darker …Read more

Cleansers - Maybelline New York - Clean Express! The Flash Clean Makeup Removing Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2013

Love at first use! I have only been able to find this online at Ulta so far, but it's so wonderful its worth the effort to find. I fell in love with cleansing balms and creams awhile ago, ones like Ahava, Clinique, Philosophy, etc. as my normal to dry combo skin always needs more moisture this time of year, and the less scrubbing and stripping of oils I can manage in the process the better …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2013

I already use and love Maybelline mascaras, especially the Volum' Express line so anytime they come out with a new version, I HAVE to try it. This one is up there with Colossal as a favorite. It truly does only take one quick coat which I guess explains teh name. Use two if you want to really amp it up. I use the wp version but there is no listing for that specifically yet. (I have to say …Read more

Foundations - CLINIQUE - Continuous Coverage

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2012

I for one, love this stuff but it's definitely made for normal to dry skin types, especially dry skin types. Oily gals should stay far away, as it will probably slide right off and I can't imagine it would ever set or last on anything but dry skin. My skin gets especially dry this time of year, sometimes tight and flaky as well, so I need a very moisturizing foundation because my face …Read more

Lips - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2012

The only shade of these that show up at all on me is Plush Plum. The rest are pretty much clear, at least on my mauvey pigmented lips. The Mauve one is a joke, it's a very pale pink that made me wonder how on earth they got any mauve out of it. Anyway, the Plum is great; pretty color, nice shine, very moisturizing, doesn't turn fuschia, no wonky scent or taste that I can tell (or it …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad "In the Buff"

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/19/2012

I like this set well enough despite Revlon not being my fav line for e/s. The quad I have does not seem as sparkly as the swatches here for some reason; there is some but seems more subtle, more satin-like. They are a bit dusty to use dry and you get more pigment and longer wear used wet; dry not so much but then again, the name IS "In the Buff" and it certainly is. I got this for 2.50 …Read more
