    Nars The Multiple

    Great Color, But Short-Lived

    I was really excited to try the multiple, it seemed like a solid investment, cheek, eye and lip color all in one. Forget about my sanitation qualms (it felt off to put face stuff on my lips and vice versa) I was pleasantly surprised at the texture for eyes and face. I bought the bronzy color and it works as a bronzer for a faux glow along with eyeshdow for a very consistent look. I'm still not wild about using it on my lips. It looks chalky and not like any lip color I would use. Another issue I've had is as a cheek and eye tint it doesnt last long. I've found without a primer it fades within the hour it was applied. I strongly suggest using a primer with this.

  • Nars Duo Eyeshadow

    Nars Duo Eyeshadow

    Nothing Compares

    I've never used any eyeshadow or palatte that has been as wonderful as Nars. The colors are unlike any other brand and the combinations are so pretty. They last for hours and the texture is brilliant, the difference is noticable. Its a splurge but if you get shades you will really use, I think buyimg these duos is worth it.

  • Sephora Colorful Chrome Mono Eyeshadow

    Sephora Colorful Chrome Mono Eyeshadow

    Love These, Comparable to MAC

    I'm an eyeshadow junkie which means I've tried every brand under the sun and I keep coming back to Sephora's line of single shadows. They are highly pigmented, come in a variety of shades, textures and even have metallics. They are a fairly good deal too consdiring the quality. I especially like their matte looks as they are really pigmented. I love MAC's 'shroom' color and Sephora has three colors very simalar to it. My only complaint is they can be a bit too shimmery sometimess.

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    I bought this on sale when UD was changing its packaging so I'm going to say I prefer the old wand to the new tube but the formula is just as good. Shadows and liners stay put all day. You can even use it without any shadow and the beige color it comes in makes for a nice clean, natural look that I'll use with just some highlighter shadow on my brow. But for lasting shadow and liner this stuff is the best.

  • Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm

    So after trying Covergirl's version of this and being underwhelmed, I thought I'd try this. I bought the red shade and this was my experience: The color did not transfer at all, I had to press it until a tiny bit bled out and then sat in the tiny lines of my lips. It looked awful. The balm broke the first time I tried to use it. I threw it out eventually, after continually trying and failing to get any color out. Really, one of Revlon's worst products.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes

    L'Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes

    My Go-to Drugstore Mascara

    I'm surprised to see all these negative comments. I've had nothing but a good experience with this mascara. I think its the drugstore equivalent to Diorshow. Lashes are way longer, more defined and voluminous without looking excessive for everyday wear. The brush is easy to hold and easy to apply. I get compliments whenever I use this about the length of my lashes. It stays on well and I've purchased this countless times. The packaging is very sleek as well. Also, when its time to remove it, it comes right off with one cotton pad of eye makeup remover. Overall, I really like this product.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara Black

    This is not a bad mascara by any means. Volume and curl are nice. I wouldn't say it gives much definition partially beacuse the brush's briteles are condensed into a small brush but its certainly not bad. I like the packaging, its prettier than a lot of department store masacra bottles. My complaint centers on the 'staying power'. It's great that it lasts fairly well during the day but it is really hard to get off. I'll shower, take off my makeup with an eye-makeup remover and go to bed and wake up with residue from it under my eye still. Even with remover its hard to get off, it can be fairly frustrating and I'd say its better than lashblast if not for that.

  • Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Length, Volume, Defintion, Long-Lasting...Everything

    Truly one of the best brush and formula duos out there. I'm most impressed by the length this wand achieves. Everytime I use it, my hair gets stuck on my lashes, they are so long, hair gets caught on them. In the volume arena what I like is that they are much fuller but not unnaturally, the brush still defines eash individual lash so the fullness isn't owed to excess product built up. It's really an impressive mascara and I urge people to at least try it, I'm hooked.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    One of the Best Drugstore Mascaras

    I like this mascara, it gives good definition, lasts a long time and gives decent volume. You cannot compare it to Diorshow or Benefit's mascras but I will say its the best of Covergirl's mascara line. The water-proof version of this loses some of its volume-effect though so buyer beware on that front.

  • OPI SKYFALL

    OPI SKYFALL

    Great Collection, 'Skyfall' Shade is Phenomenal

    When I heard news of this collection I nearly screamed. I think OPI has a tendency to pick wierd things to model their collections after like 'Modern Family" or "The Office". The Bond movies are so colorful and distinctive they really hit the mark this time. I was so excited to get my hands on them I went to three beauty stores looking for them. My first and best buy from the collection was the gorgeous deep crimson, 'Skyfall', it almost appears brown but in the right lights the scarlett hue comes out. It's a durable, long-lasting polish and it was perfect for Winter. Working at a cafe, I'm constantly passing money or drinks back and forth and everyday I'd get compliments on the color. Its a shade you certainly don't see everyday. "Moonraker', a silver metallic and "The Living Daylights" a festive glitter are my other favorites but really all of them were unique. I heard OPI is coming out with a collection inspired by the women of the Bond frnachise as well!
