Essie has great colors, but I wish they would redesign their brush. I avoid their polishes because I find it makes even the best performing colors tend to streak.

I think this is so gorgeous, but my NC15 skin would look so burnt if I wore it. I bet it’s just beautiful on really deep skin tones.

Abbey commented on the post, What are your top three hair care products right now? 4 months, 4 weeks ago

I love Joico Color Endure shampoo and conditioner and Aussie 3 Minute Miracle (I’ve been using this one for years). The Joico is new to me (a recommendation from my mom) and is seriously the best shampoo for […]

This gives me hope that their newer eyeshadows will be nice, too! These blushes are gorgeous–I love the slight sheen. It’s great that you feel comfortable recommending every color, and I can get two of these […]

I’m trying so hard not to give in to the hype and buy all of these without seeing swatches! Limited now, but permanent and they WILL restock (repeat five times). I have to keep telling myself that I can wait. ;)

I really love Kimber! It doesn’t look quite as orange on as in the tube, and looks like a great summery color.

My hair is auburn, and I definitely don’t fit into this “universal” palette. Guess this saves me some money! :)

Abbey commented on the post, MAC Eyeshadow x15 Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes Launch 6 months, 2 weeks ago

If these are full-size and of good quality, it could actually be a decent enough deal considering the full price of a palette of this size ($160, if I’m not mistaken). I wonder if you’ll be able to pop colors […]

An F on a limited edition product is disappointing, but on a permanent product it’s just ridiculous. How does this get through the quality control process?

They look so, so pretty in the pan, but I just can’t get the LE Mineralize eyeshadows to perform the way I want. I will wait to see a few reviews to see if these permanent formulas are worth picking up (it’s so […]

I generally like Revlon’s formula and feel it performs well for the price point, but this just seems very gimmicky–like something my preteen niece would enjoy. I think I’ll stick with the original.
