This went on like an oil slick and separated on my lips. It didn't matter which lip primer I used and I tried several. The packaging was pretty but what a horrible product. I was thankful I could return it, you can get 2 MAC lipsticks for the price and still have change left over.

Brows - Laura Mercier - Brunette eyebrow pencil

Nov/07/2013

This is (was) THE BEST eyebrow pencil on the market, before they reformulated the product and are now selling it with a spoolie at the end. This review is on the triangle shaped pencil that was recently discontinued. The waxy texture, long wear, and the shade/opaqueness are a winner. You see, I have half-brows...I pluck them that way because they form a terrible shape & curve too soon on …Read more

This thing is SO LOUD! It also pulls out random hair strands from the root as it spins. I bought 2 for 1 and ended up swapping each of them away. I'm glad I and some other MUAers got to try it out, but I only think this would be acceptable to use for short bangs. I always found a thick birds nest of hair on the floor after using this. If I were to use it frequently on my long hair, I would …Read more

Nails - Unlisted Brand - Red Carpet Manicure System

This system is incredible! I got it for Christmas, just in time to start my New Year's resolution to stop getting my nails professionally done. And so far, two weeks into this manicure I can say that this is just as good, if not BETTER, than the salon UV gel kind. The LED light actually reduces the curing time and reduces your exposure to harmful UV rays. This product lasts and lasts - I …Read more

I wanted to speak up about the shade Foxy! It seems like the earlier reviewers didn't like it or know what to do with it. I actually bought the palette for this color! I use it daily as a highlight with Sin on the lid and maybe some Naked or Buck (not in this palette) in the crease, for just a brightened eyes look to complement a strong lip. Foxy can also be used to tone it down if your …Read more

This is the best brush I have ever owned for applying finishing powder. I suspect that those who reviewed this product poorly just didn't know what product it is meant to apply. This is NOT for liquid or cream foundations. I use this brush to dust NARS pressed powder over my liquid foundation to matify the finish and make foundation last longer. It helps to make blush go on smoother too …Read more

If you are considering getting this foundation but balking at the $40 price, keep in mind that the product is fabulous and worth every dime!! If you are looking for a great foundation to use for flash photography, this is the one! I bought this to use for my Boudoir photo shoot and it is my ticket to perfect skin. Yes, as some girls have mentioned, a single layer of coverage is quite sheer. But …Read more

Hair Treatments - Kérastase - Masque Force Architecte

Jul/20/2012

It was recommended by the Kerastase salon by my house that I use this as part of a ritual with Bain Force Architecte shampoo, Ciment Thermique heat protectant leave-in milk and Fibre Architecte reconstructive serum. You see, I am trying to grow out my wild, frizzy, colored, heat damaged hair. It is thick with terrible split ends from all the heat and having lived in Hawaii. This masque was …Read more

This is by far the best conditioning treatment my hair had ever experienced. Usually my hair feels all crispy & fried after heat styling and the condition & the dryness gets worse daily until I condition again...a vicious cycle. Well after using this for the first time my hair is so silky and healthy and retains its style, moisture, softness and flexibility like never before! This stuff …Read more

I really enjoy this mask, it smells absolutely beautiful. I have graduated on to less abuse for my hair and nicer products (Kerastase) but still use this on occasion like when I need to conditioner-wash or just to keep my ends tangle free while I am shampooing my scalp. It smells really nice and gives a good amount of slip to keep tangles away. Great product, I've bought it over and over …Read more
