Do you love gel polishes but hate having to spend tons of money or time to get them? This is the polish for you. This collection has an amazing variety of colours and Wine Stock is no exception, it's a gorgeous burgundian red that is perfect for fall or winter. Warm, deep and lovely! How to apply, make sure to apply on clean bare nails with no base coat. No base coat required. I usually use 2-3 thin coats depending on the colour, this one only needs two. Then use the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top coat to lock in the colour. No UV lamp or gadget required! This should last at least a week or two with no chips, yay!
I think this serum was ok, but I was really not that impressed with the price. Hyaluronic serums can be very affordable and while this one does have similar results to other brands, the price was just significantly more than I was willing to spend for a moderate serum. Other brands make more complex products that I think offer more than this one, for similar prices.
Vichy's Aqualia Thermal Light Cream is a great daytime moisturizer that gets that "plush but light" texture down perfectly. It's a proper light cream formula that absorbs easily and doesn't make your skin feel heavy or greasy which is really important if you want to use it as a base for sunscreen, foundations or even a full makeup routine. It feels lovely to apply, the fragrance is very light, and it's great for people with sensitivities.
I was a huge fan of Clodhoppers back in the day, it was literally my favourite snack and I would go out of my way to grab extra bags and hoard them in my cupboard. The mix of crunchy and sweet was just too good to be true, and when they went away, I was a sad sad panda. Luckily, Hershey's has not only revived Clodhoppers, but also created some new flavours in their 'Hershey's Crunchers' line which emulate the best part of Clodhoppers, the sugary-coated crunchy goodness with familiar flavours like Cookies n' Cream and Reese's. They are perfect for sharing or just eating on your own. I'm addicted!
I almost always have a Dove body wash in my shower at any given time because it's a hydrating, creamy & moisturizing body wash that smells good and doesn't leave any residue on the skin. While the scent doesn't last as long as a some other brands it's a very reliable option for anyone looking for something that their whole family can use in the shower.
I've worked with liquid foundations before and even though they are not always my favourite, I like having a variety of foundation styles to choose from, whether cream, liquid, BB and light/medium/full coverage. It's good to have a variety to choose from. But I don't think I'll be choosing this again. The initial finish of the foundation is light to medium, and it works very well with concealers and I found it easy to layer blush/bronzer/highlight over the foundation smoothly. It looks like a fairly natural finish, not too matte and not shiny at all, but applying the foundation was a bit difficult. I ended up having to pa it on my skin/apply with my fingers. But after applying the foundation, I knew I only had a few hours before it would all break down. I tried wearing this foundation with primer spray, oil, silicone primer and moisturizing primer, and the silicone primer worked the best but BARELY kept it all together. My foundation would break down within about 4-6 hours and would simultaneously look like it was melting off my face, as well as breaking down and splotching up. I could only wear this for 3 hours if needed, nothing more.
I've been using the Revlon Mega Multiplier for almost a month now and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. I have fine, short-to-mid length lashes, and while they aren't super sparse, there aren't too many of them. The multiplier definitely makes it look like I have more pages in there, and is a good buildable formula to coat your lashes and last all day. It's not insanely voluminous which is good for me because those mascaras end up looking crazy on me. The wand is conical which makes it easy to get those finer lashes, and it's not too wet, so it doesn't smudge or run off easily. The tube is really easy to hold and locks in place to make sure I don't leave the cap sightly unscrewed and let it dry out. True story.
I was hunting after this palette for MONTHS after the initial release. I'm partial to warm pink tones but this red ochre? The raw sienna? The umber? This palette had formulations of classic colours that looked unlike anything I've seen in one palette before! Everybody was initially freaking out over that gorgeous red hues, but it's more than that. This palette can do a solid neutral, a desert sunset-esque smokey eye, and edgy runway looks. All in one palette. The shadows themselves are buttery soft, almost a bit too soft, but they go on very well. I find there's a lot of dust on my palette but I don't see a lot of fallout on my face. It has a nice sticking power. Also the brush that comes with the kit is actually very useful and I always like a full=sized palette that lets you keep a brush stowed away for your more daily looks. I usually use this brush for my go-to neutral base and my go-to dark smoky edge. The palette itself is also lovely. The velvet is a nice touch, the size is good, and the magnetic snap actually helps keep the palette closed in place. I generally like to keep it inside its paper box to keep eyeshadow dust from falling out, but that's my finicky-ness.
I was glad to try the new White Cheddar and Caramel popcorn as I'm a huuuuge fan of Chicago mix in general, but I think this mix might be too mild for me. I prefer a really strong cheddar flavour in my Chicago mix popcorn. My boyfriend liked it well enough though and polished off our bag verrrrry easily! Also I found the amount of product in this bag was very low compared to other popcorn brands, if I was going to bring this to a party is need two bags because this was barely enough to fit in a small bowl.
I received this product free/complimentary for testing purposes but all opinions are my own.
