  • Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer
    6.0

    Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

    not the bestest

    This is not as moisturizing as it's mother product- the original burts bees lip balm/chapstick. It's a good idea and the colors are nice, but the ones with glitter are not so great. The glitter particles are too big and it feels gritty on the lips. Also if you have any dry skin on your lips the glitter/color will cake on those areas and make your lips look worse than before you put the lip balm on- it basically highlights the dry areas. I wouldn't recommend for people with really dry lips. Good wash of color and minty-ness but too much glitter

  • MAC Metal-X Cream Shadow
    7.0

    MAC Metal-X Cream Shadow

    decent eyeshadow

    I like this eyeshadow, I don't love it because of one issue- it's not blendable. I bought material gold- which is a great bronzy gold color. I made the mistake of putting a primer down first, then I used the metal X, it stuck just where I put it and did not blend at all; if you plopped a ton of product down, then a ton of product just gooped right where you put it, leading to an uneven application. The second issue is that it doesn't blend well with normal powder shadows, it's better for an all over wash of color. It's decent, but I won't be purchasing anymore colors in the metal X range.

  • CHI Silk Infusion
    10.0

    CHI Silk Infusion

    Super excellent!!!

    This serum is amazing! It was recommended to me by a hairstylist friend- she had the big bottle which costs about 25 if I remember correctly. I thought that was a bit much so I went to Ulta and found the baby bottle for about 13. One year later still have at least half for the bottle left!!!! Wow does this smell incredible and it makes your hair extremely silky!!! You definitely should use a smaller amount. I have long hair and I use about a dime sized amount. When I first got this I made the mistake of using about a quarter sized amount and it made my hair look super shiny the first day and then greasy the next. So a little goes a long way. I also have used this mixed with my moisturizer after I get out of the shower and it's great!!! I mix a tiny amount with lotion and it gives your skin a great gleam and smells great. I highly recommend this product, the small bottle will go a long way!

    Urban Decay Naked Palette

    Best palette of all time!

    I can't say enough good things about this palette or recommend it to more people. It's my go-to palette whenever I travel- you can do so many different looks with just one little itty bitty palette and it comes with primer potion and a eyeliner or brush- great deal!!!! All my friends have bought them since seeing mine and love them too. A great staple to have in your kit. I can't wait to get the naked 2!

  • NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadow

    NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadow

    The best of the drugstore

    These are the best eyeshadows I have found in the drugstore (well just ulta). They come in an amazing range of colors- lots of good neutrals and tons of brights. Also they have matte, pearl and shimmer shadows so you can pick your poison. They rival MAC in constancy and color payoff. If you are on a budget and want MAC quality, try Nyx. **** also if you go on youtube many beauty gurus have videos on Nyx shadows that are dupes of MAC and other high end shadows.

  • Rimmel London Sexy Curves Mascara

    I bought this mascara after watching a few youtube videos by beauty gurus in the UK. They raved about this mascara, so I had to try it. All in all- a decent mascara, but nothing special. The formula is good, and it doesn't flake off which is a plus. The one draw back is the brush, it's a synthetic plastic brush (not a bristle brush) and it can be very harsh. When I would get this brush right up against my lash line it out often irritate it since it was so hard and poke-y. It definitely separates and curls. A good mascara, but a bad brush.

  • Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Gloss SPF 15

    I received this gloss as a present and was excited because the color was so vibrant (I received #345 fuchsia therapy). The color is amazing, the packaging is cute and sleek, but the formulation is all wrong. This product is so watery that calling it a lip gloss is a joke. It's watery, it's runny, it runs off your mouth and all around your lips, horrible especially if you have a bright color-then you look like a clown. The smell is pleasant and the colors are great, but the formula is absolutely the worst I have ever come across. Never buy this gloss, you regret it
