I originally got this product as a sample and have repurchased the fullsize product twice. I use one swipe under each eye, blended out with a small stippling brush, overtop of my normal foundation and it definitely helps to balance out the darker pigmentation I have there and it makes me look AWAKE! It doesn't settle into lines and crevices like other concealers do, and it lasts all day. I …Read more

Crème - COVERGIRL - + Olay Simply Ageless 3-In-1 Liquid Foundation

I looove high end makeup, and people always give me weird looks when I say that this stuff is my HG foundation. I'm pretty darn pale and my skin has warm undertones and shade 210 Classic Ivory matches me PERFECTLY. It does look misleadingly dark in the pan, but it blends out to be identical to my skin tone. I have fairly sensitive skin and have had a lot of trouble with products containing …Read more

Lip Treatments - Victoria's Secret - Smooth FX Lip Scrub

I LOVE this lip scrub! The bottom half of the container unscrews and is filled with a generous amount of sugar lip scrub. You only need a little swipe to completely cover your lips. You massage it in for about 30 seconds and then wipe it off with a tissue. Then you apply the balm from the top of the container and your lips feel AWESOME! The scrubby stuff exfoliates away any flaky stuff and the …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Drinking a Glass of Shine Palette

Dec/04/2012

For $5, this palette is a fantastic collection of matte shadows. 5 of the 8 colors in the palette are neutrals, each with a smooth, velvety texture. The light nude and the peachy color are particularly nice. They have great color pay off! The chocolate brown is also very nice for contouring. The blue, green, and purple are nice, but need a white base to really pop. All things considered, I really …Read more

Hair Treatments - Color Oops - Extra Strength Hair Color Remover

Oct/01/2012

I have naturally dirty blonde hair and I typically dye it golden blonde using L'Oreal Preference or Excellence, with the occasional set of professional highlights. Last night I decided to change it up and dyed it a natural medium blonde to add a little more color for the Fall. It turned out as expected at the roots of my hair, but made the lightened and highlighted parts a crappy light …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Earth Therapeutics - Nail Cuticle Care Conditioner

May/22/2012

I purchased this on a whim at Ulta because it was on sale for $4. I've tried as many cuticle creams and oil as you can possibly think of, and have never really been that satisfied with them but this cream is INCREDIBLE! A little bit goes a long way and it soaks in quickly but it keeps your hands nice and moisturized for a long time. My cuticles were rough and cracked, due to constant hand …Read more

I got a free sample of this with my last UD order. The shade I received was "Quickie" which is a bright bubblegum pink. I was a little skeptical about this because I've had limited success with other cream blushes but this one is totally different! It's incredibly blendable and the color compliments my complexion perfectly. Even more than a blush, I love this stuff as a lip …Read more

Hair Treatments - Moroccanoil - Moroccan Oil Treatment

May/07/2012

I love Moroccan Oil, but there are some things you should know about it before you buy it. In no way is this PURE argan oil. This is primarily a silicone-based frizz serum (and a pricy one at that) with some argan oil in it. It has a really pleasant smell that's kind of earthy and musky without being too gross and hippie-like. It works primarily by filling in imperfections in the hair shaft …Read more

Lip Treatments - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Line Lip Primer & Plumper

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2012

Unlike most of the other reviews, my favorite part of this product is the plumper. I'm a junkie for DuWop Lip Venom and the ELF plumper is just like it but in balm form rather than gloss. I actually like it better than Lip Venom because I prefer a matte lip usually. It's very cinnamon-y and it stings like crazy at first, but mellows out in a few minutes. The primer part used alone makes …Read more

I have an above-shoulder-length inverted bob with a lot of texture and layers cut into it and this is EXACTLY the product I've been searching for. I use a tiny amount of this stuff on the ends of my dried/styled hair to define the texture and smooth down any frizz. It makes my hair look sleek and polished and it shows the detail of the cut and helps to keep my chunky, sideswept bang in …Read more
