My hair is ridiculously long (at least for me) at the moment–about to my waist. It’s thick, heavy, and there’s a lot of it. I don’t dye my hair (haven’t since I was maybe 19 or 20). I don’t really like or dislike it. I wish it was lighter (and I already get it thinned), though.

Most Overrated and Underrated Eyeshadow Formula

Over & Under: Most Overrated & Underrated Eyeshadow Formula

There are always products that receive endless raves, but they don’t always live up to our expectations or work out as well as they do for others.  Share your picks for most overrated and underrated EYESHADOW FORMULAS.  Don’t forget to share your whats and whys as to your choices!

  • Most Overrated: [answer]
  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: It bums me out to say it, but MAC. They CAN make an excellent eyeshadow, but after trying so many more brands, a lot of their eyeshadows fall flat. There are many that are great, but there are a fair amount of duds, too.
  • Most Underrated: Bare Escentuals Ready is so dense, buttery, and smooth–excellent pigmentation, too–and was a total surprise to me. I’m also a huge fan of Tarina Tarantino’s eyeshadow formula for the same reasons.

Sunday Link Love, Volume #093

Happy Sunday!

It’s been a crazy kind of week, and this weekend wasn’t much different!  Here’s to a better week!

Luminizing creams/lotions are really good for an all-over glow (like MAC Strobe Cream/Lotion), but depending on your skin, you might prefer a powder product. For a subtle glow that is that “Hmm, what did you do differently?” kind of product, Guerlain Pressed Meteorites dusted all over. For a more obvious glow, I like highlighters like theBalm Mary Lou-manizer, Guerlain Meteorites, DiorSkin Shimmers, and the like.
