  • Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes

    These wipes do the job. The wipes are able to take off makeup, and even waterproof mascara. The only thing that I don't like is that it feels a bit rough on my skin. I do like that it can take off even the most stubborn eye liner in my arsenal. Although not everything comes off, the first time around, the second side swipe takes everything off. I do have to say that this works as well as the other wipes out there. these are really good to use when you are running short on time or are heading out after the gym. The wipes make your face feel refreshed, especially after a long and sweaty workout. Stash these in your bag, in your bathroom and your carry-on when traveling. Oh, speaking of traveling, these make an excellent refresher if you are on an overnight flight. No need to use the lavatory water to wash your face!

  • Smashbox Eye Shadow

    This eye shadow is very pigmented. I normally use it for work. If you are going to use this, make sure that you dust off the excess. It can apply heavy if you don't dust off the excess. You also don't need too much on the brush since it is heavily pigmented. As for what one of the reviewers says about flakes, this doesn't happen if you tap off the excess. Truly one of the better eye shadows. If you do want something is a friendlier on your wallet, try the NYX. It can give you the same pigmentation for a lot less.

  • Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

    Oh I really love this eyelash curler! I have tried so many other eyelash curlers and I never quite get the same curl. I will say that I have tried the Sonia Kashuk and Sally Hansen curlers and I have never been able to get the same amount of curl. I do have to say that the curl stays even after mascara is applied. The mascara does help keep the curl longer. If you can, heat your eyelash curler with a blow dryer and you can get the curl to stay up to two times longer. (Please be very careful with this. You will need to make sure that the curler is cool enough before you place it near your eye. In order to test if the curler is cool enough, test it on the back of your hand.) Tricks like this can help your lashes stand out!

  • Citre Shine Shine Miracle Highly Laminating Shampoo

    This shampoo is one of the best smelling out there. It has a light citrus smell and nice suds-ing factor. (Yes, I know suds kill the hair, but it makes my hair feel clean.) I added a little bit of baking soda to the bottle to give it an extra boost. My hair feels phenomenal after I use this with, of course, a deep conditioner afterwards. If you can, I recommend using this daily to help give your hair some extra bounce. Of course the only downside to this is that it doesn’t really help with the shine. I’ve found my hair is lacking that luster that it once had. If you are looking for a shampoo that is going to give you luster, this is not it. Keep looking there has to be one out there. If this is it, add a deep conditioner such as Pantene’s weekly conditioner. The combination will leave even the frizziest hair calm, if only for a few hours.

  • Nars Illuminator
    7.0

    Nars Illuminator

    Good idea, not good for skin other than fair

    I find that usually I'm a sucker for Nars products. This is one of those products that I probably should have steered clear. It seems that every time I put on this product, I find myself looking for the shimmer in the mirror. It really is for those with light skin, as it illuminates better and the color can be seen. My skin tone falls into the light-medium range and I still find the O... Illuminator not showing on my skin. Oh well! However, if you are one of the lucky ones that can use this product, I would suggest applying this with a foundation brush so you don’t get all the shimmer on your hands. If you want to highlight something like your cheekbones, lightly dab this from the apples of the cheeks all the way up your cheekbones.

  • Styli-Style Liquid Liner 24

    I used to love this liner. I think the felt tip has changed. I used this and found that after about two weeks, it was dry and the only spot that was viable was the portion at the top of the tip. My suggestion would be to keep this upside down it that might not even help. The tip did fray but I was still able to create a fine line. Now for the lines it creates. This can create the thinnest line possible if you keep the tip at the base of the eyelashes. It does a wonderful winged eye. If you hold the "marker" on a slant and start by the inner corner of the eye and drag the "marker" to the end of the eye. Then I take the tip and lay it on the middle of the eye and drag it across the eye and flick it up. It has phenomenal stay. It says that it is semi-permanent but really it means that it stays like a permanent tattooed liner. The liner comes off with ease too. I normally use Korres Jasmine eye makeup remover or Bliss Lid

  • Revlon Perfect Heat Hot Air Styler and Dryer Brush with Tourmaline Ceramic

    This has become my savior!!! I have a mix of wavy and curly hair. (Curly at my bangs and wavy the longer the strands get.) Oh does this do the job of a paddle brush and a blow dryer. I never thought that I would be one of those people that would say that I would like an all in one heating appliance. I have jumped ship from my very reliable and expensive flat iron. Although this is not infused with tourmaline like my other appliances, this still does a magnificent job. I find that I can curl the bottom portion of my hair with just a slight twist of the wrist. This also has an ion button for those of us who cringe at the sight and even the "f" word, FRIZZ. I tend to use the bigger brush to straighten the curls. I did use the nozzle for a little while but that was when I couldn't find the brush and it was acting a regular blow dryer. If you like to make waves, use the thinner brush. Trying to get the curl out, use the bigger brush. I highly recommend this as it works really well and just like a regular blow dryer. It takes the place of two appliance. If you would still like straighter hair, you might want to use a flat iron also. Try this if you blow dry your hair regularly!

  • Borghese Presto Fast Dry Top Coat
    10.0

    Borghese Presto Fast Dry Top Coat

    Works like the high end brands!

    Ok so I have to admit, I did not think this was going to work. I had tried the Barielle version and honestly this wins hands down. I tried this because it was on sale at Ulta. Unfortunately, I am left with a broken heart. Ulta has decided to stop selling Borghese products. When I found this out, I scoured 5, I repeat 5 Ultas to try and find more. It works just as well as Poshé Super-Fast Drying Topcoat. *Sigh!* When I find a polish that works like this AND Poshé, I'll update this post!!

  • Nars Lip Gloss
    7.0

    Nars Lip Gloss

    Take it or leave it

    I have this in two gorgeous colors. The first is Scandal and the second is Greek Holiday. Scandal is a fire engine red. I was totally scared the first time I used Scandal because I had never worn red lipstick/lip gloss ever! It didn't make me look overly done but the color that came through was still beautiful. Greek Holiday is one that I love to put on top of MAC's SlimShine in Bare. Bare gives me an icy nude color lip but with Greek Holiday, because of the gold flecks, I don't look like a complete ice queen. I did want to point out that my glosses did feel tacky and that is why I gave this product a 7 instead of a 9. Also the packaging is bulky when you are trying to fit it into a smaller bag, wallet, or clutch. A tad expensive, but look for events that have a free gift.

  • Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

    Although I normally like Nars products, this foundation made me look oily. Yes, I know it has the word glow in it. However, it should not have made me look like I was prepping to sit out in the sun. I really thought that this would look nice since I tried it at the store and it applied beautifully. I was really disappointed that this was completely different. Since returning the Glow Foundation, I have upgraded to the Matte Foundation. The matte version looks so much better on skin that is oily or combination.
