I was looking to buy something inexpensive from Sephora just to use some points in my point bank, and I stumbled upon this. The store still had it marked as $15, so I was thrilled that it rang up as $8. It's a perfect solution for purse storage as I change lipsticks almost daily. My only complaint is that ... more >>

This is AMAZING! I have incredibly sensitive eyes that water constantly. Due to the watering I was excited to try this liner as others I start out loving end up transferring a bit at the outer corners of my eyes. I had to go to 4 stores (between Sephora & ultas) and finally found this in Stingray (last one). ... more >>

Review: Becca Watermelon Beach Tint

Packaging quality:

After all the hype on MUA, I finally caved & got the Watermelon Beach Tint. It takes some getting used to, because it is VERY watery. You have to squish it around in the tube & shake it a bit & it still comes out runny, but once you get used to it, it is WONDERFUL!

I've taken advantage of ... more >>

This top coat is a fun way to change your nails and go from shiny to matte. It’s $4.00 at Wal-mart and works like a charm. Just as the name indicates it works instantly to transform any nailpolish into a matte one. This clear coat dries super fast! As soon as you put it on you will see the ... more >>

First of all, let me qualify my ratings by saying that those are based on the original price of the products, which is $20 a pop for a product of 0.04 oz. That is a ridiculously small amount of product for the price, especially considering the awful packaging (you’ll see what I mean later.) However, these pop up quite ... more >>

Review: Essie Lapis of Luxury

Overall rating:
Value for money:
Packaging quality:

I love Essie's image and packaging, but this color is just so-so. I have fair, warm/neutral skin and this dusty blue cream finish polish is not a stand out color on my nails. It is on the sheer side and a bit streaky, so I had some application difficulties, resulting in 3 coats and a somewhat thick final look. Perhaps ... more >>

Review: CND – Creative Nail Design Urban Oasis (Night Factory Duo)

I bought this off of Transdesign, it is a gorgeous dark teal and is opaque in ONE coat. I've been wearing the Night Factory Duo on my toes for a week no chips. I am not a fan of the new bottle shape from CND but no complaints about the brush or rubberized lid. ... more >>

Review: NARS Portobello Eyeshadow Duo

Recommended:Yes
Overall rating:
Value for money:
Packaging quality:

As a makeup artist, I find myself frequently going to this eyeshadow duo by NARS. It really is one of those "universal color" combos that works on just about everyone. The "taupey" shade in the duo is perfect for adding definition to the crease, but not too dark, and the highlight shade is just right: not too light, not shimmery. ... more >>

Review: Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy

Overall rating:
Value for money:
Packaging quality:

Pixie Epoxy is a thin, gel eye primer to use with with any glittery, fall-out prone, pigmented, loose eyeshadow. It keeps eyeshadow vibrant forever.... or at least it seems like forever.

However, for some reason, it makes my eyeshadow crease even after I have used UDPP (which, by itself, does NOT cause e/s creasing). I apply Pixie Epoxy as thinly ... more >>
