Great color, light cool-toned pinky. It's not as pigmented when swiped on the lips compared to in the tube, very sheer color on lips. Suprised at how sparkly it is, but i don't notice glitter chunks or grits. The gloss feels smooth on the lips, not sticky whatsoever (i hate sticky lipgloss and it's hard to find glosses that are not sticky). This could be worn as an everyday neutral …Read more

Nice texture, not sticky, very moisturizing and smooth! NYC Liquid Lipsticks are generally nicely pigmented. I like Betti Ann but i'm not a fan of bright lips so i layer Pout glosses over it. It's a very nice raspberry/pink shade with slight shimmer, but so pigmented its suprising. If you like brighter colored lip stuffs, you'll love Betti Ann. I'm more use to YLBB/natural lip …Read more

Great medium dark grey shade, not matte but no shimmer, just nice healthy sheen and not dry looking on the eyelids. I agree with other reviewers that this isn't creamy, but its still easily blendable. Because this isn't creamy, transfering color onto the eyelid is that easy, so what i do is i pull my eyelid out gently like im going to apply eyeliner, then i rub color directly onto my …Read more

first of all, i LOVE this dryer!!!!! cut my drying time in half!! (im not down to less than 10 minutes for my thick/coarse/dry long hair) With a paddle brush, my hair actually turns out straight and shiny!

i was considering a Babyliss or T3, but stumbled on other MUA'ers talking about this revlon dryer. turns out, Good Housekeeping ranked this drying above the $200 and $300 T3 …

new HG!! its like Rimmel Apricot blush, but with more pigment and microshimmer! great peach/pink color. it's a really warm blush, so if you're skin is cool toned, this can turn orange *very* quickly on you. im neutral-cool toned but it still worked wonderfully. Doesn't take a lot of product to get a nice flushed, glowy look (unlike my old peach HG Rimmel where it took a lot of …Read more

Pleasantly suprised! I bought 2 colors, Peach Parfait and 34 Plum Street. Both are not as pigmented as i thought, and needed 3 thin coats to become fully opaque (both are cremes). I used Orly Bonder basecoat with PP and OPI Ridge Filler with 34PS, plus Seche Vite as top coat. once i applied the base, 3 coats of color, and topcoat, the color looked like any of my OPI polish. Wear was excellent as …Read more

HG!!!! lovely bright medium pink! i love it because it didnt look like a typical creme. it was more opaque jelly-looking, exactly like in the photo below. Im neutral/cool toned but I can still use this warmer shade. another winner from OPI!

HG HG HG!!! ***love*** this! why didnt anyone think of combining pigment and wax sooner?? i was using the MAC eyebrow pencil for about 3 years, but no matter what color i used, my eyebrows did not look natural, and looked drawn in. i have somewhat prominent bald spots on my brows. i love wonderbrow because not only is it well pigmented and easy to build up color, the wax part of it makes my …Read more

HG black eyeshadow! love this! its a true black (not "dark grey" black), with a hint of shimmer (no glitter) so that its not matte. Very blendable, and takes a super small amount of eyeshadow on my brush to get a lot of black color on my lids. as usual, it has NYX high quality! very pigmented, easily blendable, smooth. great for that dark, smokey eye look. PERFECT!!!! would definitely …Read more

this is my first NYX product and i love it!! very very impressed! i bought this in the Trio #19 with Barely There and Champagne, and the colors totally complement eachother!

I stoped using powdered eyeshadows altogether for a couple years because a) all the ones i tried never showed up on me, b) the ones that would somewhat show up on me (MAC, shiseido etc) are rather expensive when …
