I love this polish! It has such a fantastic jelly formula - levels out flawlessly, which makes doing multiple layers a breeze, and is so glossy. Two layers is pretty if you don't mind visible nail line, but three will make it almost completely opaque. I also usually slap this on without a base or top coat, and it lasts days! If only all formulas were this dreamy!

It's a …

They must've rerereleased this, because the bottle I bought is clear with an opalescent finish and a pink nozzle bit. The name is the same though, so my review goes here.


I have thick, barely wavy hair that poofs up like a balloon when it's humid outside. This in combination with Tresemme's anti frizz spray has kept my hair looking much more well-behaved and …

Hair Removal - Schick - Quattro for women Trimstyle

Jun/14/2013

My first one broke after 6 or 7 months, I was keeping it in the shower and water must've gotten in. But the trimmer is so fabulous that I bought another one just to keep in a drawer. At $9 a pop, it's worth it to buy for the trimmer alone. I suppose you could buy a more expensive lady parts trimmer that is only a trimmer. However, I never see them in stores, and they're at least …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Seashore Frosts #30

What a unique color! It ends up golden on my lids and shimmery blue-gray in the crease - two shadows in one. I would have never, ever purchased it based on the color in the pot. Usually I run in the opposite direction from blue eye shadow!


It goes on too sheer if you use your fingers. Get a soft, natural bristle brush like the MAC 239 or the excellent Loew-Cornell maxine mop …

Love this stuff! I have thick, large-wavy (as in, I get one or maybe two curves in collarbone-length) hair that gets really poufy in the heat/humidity. I prefer to blowdry my hair straight, but that doesn't really control the puffiness. I used this years and years ago, went through bottles at the time. Recently I dragged it out randomly to see if it still worked. YUP! …Read more

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - Lip Butter

I bought Raspberry Rose. It has a sickeningly strong chemical candy scent that doesn't fade. It's like I'm rubbing melted Skittles on my lips.


The consistency is fine, a bit on the thin side but I prefer that in balms. Wear time is below average, and it isn't very moisturizing. The tin is slender, so it's great for sticking in a smaller purse/clutch or …

Lip Treatments - eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Pomegranate Raspberry

Feb/21/2013

Love the scent of this one! Very light and definitely smell both pomegranate and raspberry, but it's not cloying or overly strong. I like citrus/fruit scents the best, and this is a great blend.


The balm is smooth, not sticky but not too slippery. Doesn't last forever but I like reapplying. The container is cute and easy to find in your purse. Ridiculous to carry in …

I don't have cats, so I had no idea this smelled like cat pee. To me, it's got a fruity, peach scent with a bit of tartness. If you don't know what cat pee smells like, the scent probably won't bother you.

Skincare - Face - NADS - No-Heat Hair Removal Gel Facial Wand

Jan/31/2013

It's just OK. As with the other reviews, you MUST use the cleansing wipe and you MUST warm up the wax. No heat is just nonsense. I stuck it in a cup full of really hot water for a few minutes and that did the trick.


The applicator is not very precise so I'm not sure I would try it on my eyebrows. It did well for the upper lip, got all the coarse hairs and most of the …

EDIT: TRAGEDY. This product broke me out horribly behind the ears, on my neck and hairline after about 4 days daily use. I stopped using it completely, and all the pimples went away. :(((


Love this! I have thick, slightly wavy hair that gets puffy when I blow dry it (and I HAVE to blow dry it). I rubbed a bit on the ends of my hair while wet and my hair was much smoother and not …
