Mascara - wet n wild - megaslim SKINNY MASCARA

This is a good mascara in some ways but not in others. Although it's not advertised as such, it's a fiber mascara so beware if you have issues with those. I didn't have any problems even though I wear contact lenses.

It's a nice black formula and as others have said you can get right to the root of your lashes do its really easy to use it you have hooded eyes like …

Palettes - Natasha Denona - Mini Lila Eyeshadow Palette

2.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

I have hazel/green eyes and red-based purples make the green really pop, so I was stoked to see an affordable mini version of the Lila palette. I'd never tried anything by Natasha Denona and this little guy had gotten good reviews so I was really excited, especially with a shade selection such as this.

But oh this palette just failed me epically. Purples are in my wheelhouse, as …

Dry Shampoo - Not Your Mother's - Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2018

This dry shampoo is a steal at WalMart but not worth it for me! I have lots of fine hair and an oily scalp, so my hair can get really greasy. I have to keep spraying and spraying and spraying to notice any sort of lift or look of "cleanliness" to my hair.

I'll give it two stars because it is a very nice fine spray that doesn't look ashy; also it doesn't have …

Mascara - Catrice - Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/17/2018

I was anxious to try this mascara for a few reasons: One: it got such great reviews on Ulta's website. Two: it has a rubberized, curved brush EXACTLY like Cover Girl Clump Crusher, a mascara I love. Three: the price us excellent, and it was on sale at Ulta.

It applies pretty much like Clump Crusher: combs through lashes, clump-free, buidable, decent volume and length, nothing …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - 10% Niacinamide Booster

First: This is a long review. Sorry. I give products a lot of thought and test them a really long time before I review them. And I think it's only fair to describe my skin issues and other products I use to give you all the info you need. You spend a lot of money on this beauty crap. I'm here to help a sister out. (Or brother)

Second: I have oily skin, acne-prone, aging skin …

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Baked Eyeshadow in Pixie

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/04/2016

I don't know why I've had this sitting in my drawer, ignored, for so long. No, that's a lie-it's because I have a million shadow palettes, and my singles go ignored. New Year's Makeup Resolution: use single eyeshadows more. Done and done!

Baked shadows are not my favorite because they can be so flaky and dry; often they have pigment, but it doesn't want …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2015

This is a very good mascara but there are much better mascaras out there. I have fairly long lashes, but they're kind of flimsy and don't have a lot of them, so I need volume and definition more than length. This delivers the length but not the volume, and if the name "voluminous" is in the product name...well, I have to penalize you, L'oreal.

There's …

Foundations - Too Faced - Born This Way Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2015

I really liked this foundation a lot, but it has its disadvantages. Overall it lived up to its claims. Here's the breakdown:

FINISH/TEXTURE: I really appreciated the natural finish, which was neither matte nor glowy on my combo/oily skin. Dry-skinned ladies, you may find that this is just not glowy enough for you, because I'd say even in my oily t-zone it leaned closer to a …

Sep/26/2015

Sigh. I waited a couple of months to review this foundation because I wanted to give it a chance. It seems like it worked really well when I first got it, and then it got an attitude. At first it looked natural and although it's not glittery or shiny, caught the light so well. The texture was so smooth and blendable, it was a dream. And it lasted surprisingly well for a foundation of this …Read more

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Jean Queen

Sep/30/2014

I have to be brutally honest and say that I think the idea behind this lipstick is hilariously absurd. Is there some woman out there who pulls on a pair of jeans and cries, "Oh dear! Now which lipstick do I wear with these? Oh me, oh my! Whatever shall I do?" Am I the only one who has never scratched her head over this conundrum? That said, this color does complement the indigo blue of …Read more
