Mascara - Maybelline New York - Total Temptation Mascara

My high-end mascara was irritating my eyes, and I decided to grab a new mascara while I was at the drugstore buying allergy eye drops. I picked this up in kind of a hurry, and nearly returned it after reading the reviews. But I like this! It gives a more natural long-and-thick look, but that’s what I want. It also survived a hot and humid day with virtually no smearing or flaking. And it …Read more

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-In-1 Mascara

4.0

I did a tour of drugstore mascaras just for the jollies of it and got tired of my lashes not looking as good as they could, and the first thing I did was to get another tube of this mascara. I try lots of mascaras, and there is no perfect mascara, but this one certainly ticks a lot of boxes — it’s non-irritating, makes my lashes look great in no time, stays on my lashes when I go to the gym and …Read more

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Ink Liner

4.0

I probably use this liner for the opposite reason of most who buy it — I want a nice, thin line just above my upper lash line, and this works perfectly. The tip is thin enough and firm enough to not leave a blot of liner where I don’t want it. It’s on the pricey side, but if I’m not out buying various pencils and liners that don’t do what I want, it’s money well spent!

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara

4.0

4 months ago

I’m making a tour around drugstore mascaras that are supposed to be pretty good, so I picked up some Paradise mascara. I accidentally bought the waterproof formula, so here I am. I’m a bit mystified at the negative reviews, because I think it makes my lashes look great. I also don’t have to spend a great deal of time getting there, the formula and brush are both very cooperative. Ironically …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Velvet Teddy

Like the reviewer just preceding me, I bought a mini size, I have a light neutral skin tone and this color was utterly blah on me. I think it’s probably lovely on people with more warmth in their skin, but the color, combined with the generally matte finish, just didn’t work.

Mascara - Thrive Causemetics - Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara

I first purchased this mascara about a year ago and it’s become a regular acquisition. What I love the most about it is that it takes no time at all to apply and it makes your lashes look great — as in, it’s like you’ve spent a lot of time in front of the mirror building up coats to get length and volume. But it takes no time at all with this mascara. It’s also long lasting and it comes off …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - NOT Attar Bazaar Sweet Musk

5.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

Sweet Musk by Attar Bazaar is, to me, the perfect fresh, clean skin scent, but in a natural way — not in a soapy or dryer sheet sort of way. It’s a light, white musk with some sweet overtones. It stays close to the skin and has average staying power. It’s perfect to wear when I want to know I smell good, but I’m not really interested in broadcasting it to the rest of the world.

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Lipstick- #529 Thalia

I was at the drugstore and in a crummy mood, so a new lipstick seemed like a good idea. I grabbed this, not having tried NYX, but the price was right and I thought the color looked pretty. I love this color, and also like that the formula is a bit creamy. I have light-neutral skin and the mauve tones of this color really work. A very good impulse purchase that I’d buy again.

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I picked this up because I heard it was a good drug store concealer, and I’m very pleasantly surprised, especially considering it’s under $10 and I’m not used to paying that little. The color is a good match to my skin (better than many of the pricey concealers I’ve tried in the past!) and I find that I can build it by adding a second coat and it still looks natural. Add some setting powder …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Colossal Volum Express Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

This is reasonably good mascara, and considering its under $10 price, a lot better than many over $20 mascaras I’ve tried over the years. It’s not holy grail quality, but it makes my lashes look pretty darn good, as long as I take the time to apply a couple of coats, not taking time to let the first coat dry — because it’s not very buildable after it dries. But generally, it’s more than worth …Read more
