This top coat is not for me. The drying time is ok, not as fast as SV but faster than the regular top coat. The shine factor is also ok, again not as shiny as SV, Poshe, or Essie G2G but again better than almost all regular top coats. The wear is also ok, no chips or tip wear and the shine lasts for a good 2-3 days. What drives me nuts is that I get dents on my nails with this polish. I see it on …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Waterproof

Mar/14/2009

Eh nothing special about this mascara. It's billed as a volumizing mascara and in a super fat tube. So they are setting up the expectations pretty high already. The results are ok - I get teensy lengthening and some volume. Nothing dramatic or lash fattening. The good news is that the mascara did not drag down my curl or irritate my eyes. The waterproof version is truly waterproof but …Read more

Poo this color doesn't work well with my skintone. It's a lovely muted greyed purple in the bottle but it appears much brighter lavendar-y on my hands. The smokey murky mutedness is not there when applied. At least not on my skintone. It's ok on my toes, actually it looks good there along with flip flops. But it doesn't evoke the cool damp days of fall/winter …Read more

You Don't Know Jacques is a daring out of the norm color released as part of OPI's Fall 08 collection. It is a dark taupe cream - think portobello mushroom cap color. A nice change from all the dark vamps, reds, and blacks out there. It's dark enough to complement to cool crisp weather of autumn. A great color if you can get used to wearing …Read more

Sep/21/2008

Yeah, I'm on the grey bandwagon..or rather I've been trying to find grey polish for years and years with little luck. Finally it has become "trendy" enough that I can shove all my mixing experiments aside and sit happily on the cart. Recycle is a very nice balanced grey creme from China Glaze. No the color isn't terribly exciting, it's basically white and black creme …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Slimshine Lipstick in High 90's (Cool Heat)

Sep/13/2008

I have to say that I'm really in love with High 90s slimshine. Yes it's orange but pair it with a pinky lipgloss or liner (or if you have pigmented pinky lips) and I get the most awesome juicy pinky coral lips. No glitter or frost, just pure juiciness. Perfect summer lip color and I have been faithfully reaching for this lipstick since late July. I'm about halfway through the tube …Read more

Love love love this lipgloss from Kiehls! Though I would call this more of a glossy lipbalm rather than lipgloss. Or maybe they are the same? :)

Pink Rider is a gorgeous pinky rose gloss with some sparkles. These sparkles are nothing to worry about - they don't migrate all over the face or end up hair like other glosses. The pigmentation is medium (for a …

Lip Gloss - Bobbi Brown - Hot Pink

Aug/15/2008

Hot Pink is not as bright or OTT as the name implies. Yes, it is a fuschia bright pink in the tube but the gloss applies sheerly. I still get a cool toned pink tinted color, enough to see that I am wear a pink lipgloss on my medium pigmented lips. What I love most about these glosses is the high glass like shine that makes my lips look juicy but not in a young way. I can play it up or play it …Read more

Fragrances - Cartier - Delices

Jul/06/2008

The notes sound promising - some fruit, some flowers, and some headier (violet, sandalwood) notes to anchor it down. Though on my body it's way too sweet, like cherry candy with a dash of pepper. Actually it reminds me of Luden's cherry cough drops. Tolerable in small doses but I get tired of it and it's a fragrance that last hours on me. I have a sample vial of this perfume and …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Funships

Jun/30/2008

Now this color is what summer is all about - bright, loud, shimmery, glowy, red coral! Funships leans more on the orangey red side when applied to my toes. The polish applied evenly and I got opaque saturated color with 2 coats. The wear was also fantastic - my pedicure lasted almost 2 weeks with only slight tip wear on 2 toes when I removed it. A great summer color but it is too much for me to …Read more
