Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Color

Feb/01/2018

This was something I originally got in my Ipsy bag back in July of 2017, and I'm both surprised and not surprised that more people aren't using and talking about this brand. It's definitely not a superglam, in-your-face kind of brand, more of a minimalist chic brand. But I really, really love this and I have/will be investing in more Nudestix products.

Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

Jul/10/2017

These are some of the OG liquid lipsticks and they are still great. Some of the best in my collection. They're very mousse-y and not liquidy at all. I have the colors Havana (a dark blue/purple), Vancouver (a very dark plum), and Copenhagen (deep, vampy red). Out of these, Havana is the most difficult to build up to full opacity, and Copenhagen is the easiest to work with. Here are some of …Read more

Let's get the obvious over with first: I bought this because they have a color called Rule 34. I'm a millennial internet nerd. I had to. Now on to the important and actually valuable information.

Is it expensive? Yes. Is it still really good lip gloss? Also yes. Is Rule 34 a great color aside from the name? Yes! Sure, I bought it because of the name, but this particular color …

I own these in Embellishment and French Maid. Embellishment pulls grayish mauve on me, and it's really pretty. French Maid is the best MLBB for me that I've found in a liquid lipstick.

Here are my thoughts beyond the colors themselves:
+ The formula is not streaky, at least for the two colors I have.
+ These are pretty comfortable for the first three hours or …

Palettes - Tarte Cosmetics - TARTElette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadows

My HG eyeshadow palette. All matte, all gorgeous colors, all great on my pale, cool-toned skin and deep-set, hooded eyes. Take note, those with hooded eyes - matte shadows like these will be great for you.

The formula is different from conventional shimmer/satin eyeshadows but I find these mattes to be easier to pick up and more pigmented than those in my UD Naked2 Basics palette …

Eye Primer - LORAC - Behind the Scenes Eye Primer

5.0

Oct/04/2016

This is the best eyeshadow primer I've tried, full stop. It dries quickly, wears like iron, and holds onto everything I throw at it. This works really well for my oily, hooded eyelids.

The formula is thicker than most of the more popular primers, especially when compared to Too Faced Shadow Insurance and UD Primer Potion. It's more creamy, but it spreads evenly and thinly …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Full Throttle Lipstick

Oct/04/2016

Locked is pretty much my favorite lipstick color ever for my fair skin. It's gorgeous. It's berry without going fuchsia or magenta. It's bright without being garish. It's dark without being inappropriate for work. If I were giving this color itself the lippies, it would be an easy 5. I love it.

Locked isn't the only color I have, though, and there's more …

Lipstick - REVLON - ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick (all colors)

Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2016

Lipstick has a way of wearing off of my lips. Maybe it's my job (high school teacher). Maybe it's my habits (I purse and lick my lips a lot). Maybe it's my lips themselves (full bottom lip, comparatively thin upper lip). So I was pleased when I found a liquid lip stick color that I actually liked that also didn't require multiple steps. I bought myself a tube of Premiere Plum …Read more

Sep/20/2016

This is the best mascara I've tried since CoverGirl's Clump Crusher stopped playing nice with my sensitive eyes and contact lenses (it's a great mascara, just not for me anymore). I can be at work all day and spend an evening at an "optional" training without my eyes stinging when I get home.

The brush is a standard large-ish straight brush, which might not be …

Dry Shampoo - Suave - Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray

Oct/04/2015

I have masses of fine, dark blonde hair that gets oily at the roots. It's also the color of hair that looks nice and blonde when it's clean, and then the roots get dark as the oiliness makes its mark. I've been experimenting with dry shampoo as a way to keep my hair perky in between every-other-day washes. I apply it to my roots as I'm getting ready for work, let it sit while …Read more
