  • Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Makeup Silky Eyeshadow

    I swiped this on and I must say that the pigment pay off is quite rich in this sleek, glossy square casing that is eye catching. As they are blended with other shades, they don't blend as well with each other as I'd like to as they seem to streak if you don't blend them fast enough and as they mix with bodily or facial oils, you may find that they won't last too long without a base (primer) beneath them. Nonetheless, they are worth the price tag considering the beautiful glimmery colors they come in and as long as you prep your eyes beforehand, you shouldn't have too much of a problem. One thing that I noticed is that application is significantly different from the casing because it doesn't appear as glimmery on the lids when dispersed and blended as it looks in the casing. You'll find the glitter much much milder on and that it only adds a subtle glamorous touch to your overall lid. After all though, who would want to look like they're about to overshine like a disco ball?

  • Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow

    Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow

    Experience the Rainbow

    Super pigmented and true to live colors, this definitely will create that rocker look or romantic scene you've been trying to create with the other faltering eyeshadows. These come individually with collector designed cases and insides comes a good amount of product that lasts for such a while in irresistable, show stopping colors. I love these and the best factor of it all? No creasing, even on my oily lids.

  • Physicians Formula F.L.A.T. Fabulously Long And Thick Mascara

    This was a good mascara, not the best but still a good one to have especially when you're on the go, the included mirror makes all the difference. I didn't notice much clumping yet there was volume and lengthening. So now the only bummer is this is a rare item, I can hardly find it in stores. I also like how Physician's Formula mascaras come in different shapes and sizes. Pretty nifty, if you ask me.

  • Physicians Formula Lash-in-a-Tube Full Coverage Cream Mascara

    The first thought that came to mind when I bought this was how innovative; now, this is something different. I pulled the tube out of the wand, there is something left around the outter tip but nonetheless I began to apply. Minutes later, I noticed my eyelashes clumping together and that this formula took quite a bit of time to dry. Unfortunately, I had to sneeze. And there it was, a glob of mascara underneath my eyes that still has yet to dry. Nevermind, forget about this. The product ironically takes forever to dry but hardens a little bit in the tube over time with air exposure making all other applications even more clumpier

  • AMBI ESSENTIALS Daily Moisturizer w/ SPF 15

    I dearly wanted to like this. Not just because this is a moisturizer with toning effects but that it has a sunscreen but it highly irritated my skin. Part of the reason why I dislike it though is the fragrance and it seems way too strong for my preference. Another is that is leaves a greasy film on my face and makes my makeup look shiny after a few minutes. The benefits of it being oil-free is great but it still doesn't prevent shine too well or irritation since I believe the fragrance is the culprit in making me itch after a few hours. I'd recommend something else.

  • Olay Night of Olay Firming Cream

    Olay Night of Olay Firming Cream

    Beauty Jar De Olay!

    I have oily skin and I dread waking up in the morning with so much shine but I needed an evening moisturizer because I felt that maybe the reason why my skin is overproducing oil is because of imbalance. True enough, the next day afer this, I noticed less shine and soft skin. It's a great evening cream for a low price if you can't figure out what else to use. This is non-comedegenic so it won't clog pores, creamy, and oil-free. The only drawback is the scent. The scent reminds me of moth balls or linen drawers for some reason; very powdery with a touch of florals. Anyway, for the low price, I gave it a go and am pretty satisfied with it.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara
    4.0

    L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara

    Eh, Average Ratings For You Here, Voluminous

    This mascara gives subtle volume but building it up can cause a problem. One thing I truly hate about mascaras is any stiffness and this did just that, stiffen after it ma dried. It may be waterproof but I didn't enjoy how tough it was to remove this even with soap and water or makeup cleansing solutions which actually leading to flaking. Clumps? Yes, I did experience some while trying to dramatize my lashes but I love how boldly black the formula goes on and does look "wet" all day.

  • Lancome Blush Subtil
    6.0

    Lancome Blush Subtil

    Sweep Sweep Here

    It's harder to let go of thirty dollars especially when you do like the blush and the color selections, very natural and subtle and you want them all - not just one. The best part is the oil-free factor. Who doesn't love the fact that it isn't pore clogging in that aspect? The large mirror helps with touch ups on the go but not the best for actual application as it may not cover the full perimeter of your cheek area but the brush that comes along with it is ultra soft. It comes with a generous amount of product but the set back is that the glossy casing can be filled with fingerprints in no time and if your face gets oily, this can be streaky or darken. If you can keep your face matte and allow your moisturizer to dry fully, this will be a good match for you

  • Lancome Blush Subtil Sheer

    Lancome Blush Subtil Sheer

    Contour, Blush, Even Bronzer

    This blush is great, I have it in Ciel Glace if I'm not mistakened by the name. I could be wrong but the texture is rather smooth, hard to blend thoroughly though but the best way to apply it is with a super loose bristled brush and swept very gently on the apples of the cheek. It comes in a black glossy compact very much like a pressed powder with a very generous amount which is beneficial to this product considering the price tag is high so they do need to compensate for something. It comes with a soft medium density brush which can actually be helpful when you're on the go applying this brush and the large mirror adds another plus for this product. The only set back is the thirty dollar price for one shade, and you may want more than just one when you see the lovely shades.

  • Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist

    I wanted this for a while but I thought I'd wait until I finish the glossing cream that I do adore. It's a perfectly good thing I didn't purchase this because it doesn't smell very pleasant. I sprayed it on me and the first thing that came to mind was that it had a rancid smell and while it wasn't strong, it was my hair that smelled like that so I would notice it. My best friend agreed that it wasn't a pleasant scent. I also didn't like that it was a bit greasy, that it didn't absorb fully into the hair to look glossy and moisturized instead of an oil slick and weight it down a little. I dislke hair products with alcohol because in the long term, it contributes to stripping color, frizz, and dryness so I'm avoiding this for good from now on.
