Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Nicka K Aqua Lip Color

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2017

I'm getting tired of wearing heavy, matte finish lipsticks and I was looking around for a lighter textured but still pigmented lip color. I found the Nicka K Aqua Lip Color on iKatehouse for dirt cheap ($1.99) and purchased a few to try out. As the name suggests, these are water based lip colors. There is no heavy or waxy feel to it. It feels absolutely weightless on and very comfortable …Read more

Lip Gloss - COVERGIRL - Lip Lava (All Shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/06/2017

I believe this is discontinued. I remember seeing these in the drugstore not that long ago. I thought the colors were very striking but the price was too high and I'm not really a lipgloss person. They were easy to pass up.

Last week I was in my local Big Lots and they had a bunch of the Lip Lava shades on sale for $2.80. For that price, I couldn't resist. I picked up two …

Lipstick - wet n wild - Velvet Matte Lip Color (not "Fergie")

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2016

Update 2/2016: Wet n Wild has been reformulating a lot of their core products recently. Apparently they also jettisoned Fergie because several of her branded WnW products are either gone or relabeled. I saw several new shades of the Velvet Matte Lip Color recently and although the packaging appears the same, it no longer says "Fergie" on it. I've added a new review on MUA to …Read more

Hair Color - Manic Panic - Ultra Violet Classic High Voltage

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2015

I use Manic Panic Ultraviolet in a DIY leave-in mix to neutralize brassy color in my level 10 colored hair. I add about 1 teaspoon to approximately 16 oz leave-in conditioner (YMMV) and usually use after I wash my hair although this can be used on dry hair as well.

Lightweight, watery leave-ins like Infusion 23 work best for me. This method is more effective at getting rid of unwanted …

Other - Unlisted Brand - ipsy

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/14/2014

I'm on the fence with the ipsy subscription service. I love the idea of trying new cosmetic/skin lines and absolutely think the contents (+ cosmetic bag) one receives every month is worth the $10/month fee. However, a lot of the brands they've been featuring, repeatedly, lately are very cheap quality. I've also taken their quiz several times, making it very clear I do not want …Read more

Foundations - Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2012

I've heard BB creams referred to as "blemish balm" before so I wasn't quite sure what to make of this cream when I got it. I'm long past worrying about blemishes. Garnier calls it a "beauty balm" and touts its light texture that instantly melts into skin, the mineral pigments that give an instantly ‘perfect’ skin, 24hr hydration and SPF 15
UV protection. …

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter (All Shades) [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/30/2011

Oh yeah........this is what CoverGirl NatureLuxe lip balm only wishes it could be! A really well-executed lipstick/lipbalm hybrid, these are not at all waxy but rather bathe your dry lips in good-for-you shea and mango butters. They are also surprisingly pigmented. I picked up Lollipop and Red Velvet and couldn't be more pleased with my selections. Lollipop is a medium cool toned pink …Read more

Styling Products - Beyond The Zone - Smooth Enuff Solid Serum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/16/2011

This was a total impulse buy at Sally's. I have approximately 15 hair serums/smoothing lotions/defrizzers at home and I need another one like I need a hole in the head. However, two things attracted me to this product. One, it's a solid serum, and I thought this would be great to carry around in my purse for when I need a touch-up. And two, it was on clearance! I got it for $2.99. I …Read more

Styling Products - Suave - Professionals Vibrant Shine Spray *new version*

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/18/2011

This is a nice little shine spray; good scent, appropriate amount of 'cones, and little shimmer particles of mica that catch the light and enhance the shine in your hair. The only downside for me is the denatured alcohol which needs to be present for the 'cones to be in a spray format but also tends to dry out my hair.

I help to mitigate the negative effects by making my …
