Review for Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink™ Liquid Lipstick - 2 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
Review for: Loyalist more...
I actually have this entire collection and I have a love/hate with it. On one hand, the shade selection is absolutely stunning. There is seriously a shade for everyone. The nudes are great. They are opaque and wear fairly well. The downside to these for me, more than anything, is the smell. They not only go on with a strong scent of plastic, but you can taste it on your lips. I for one like a nice vanilla scent to my lip products, and it would have been very useful with these. My other letdown is that the darker/brighter shades are a bit streaky and have to be worked with to achieve full opacity. I do love the sleek, matte packaging and think these are priced well I just wish they could tweak those 2 very important issues.

Review for OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright Eye Creme - 2 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I received this product through  Influenster. I was very excited when I saw this arrive because I LOVE banana powder. The box and packaging was adorable. Although for a product that is banana themed I found all the orange references a bit odd. I personally do not have a problem with dark circles, but I was still excited to see if it would do some under-eye skin brightening. I applied it as instructed, but sadly saw no difference whatsoever after I put on my makeup. It had a slight gleam before, but as soon as I put on foundation it was gone. While it smelled nice, and felt great it just didn't make a noticeable difference. I know other people love this product, but unfortunately it just didn't work out for me.

Review for NARS NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette - 4 weeks, 1 day ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I have been on a Nars ban for some time now after learning they went back to testing on animals. I try as much as possible to stay cruelty-free when it comes to makeup, but sometimes I cave- this was one of those moments. I have always enjoyed Nars shadows and when I saw that this palette was not only my favorite color scheme, but that it also had the pressed hardwire shadows I had to give in. Blocking from my mind that this product was more than likely tested on poor little animals, I gave it a try. I almost hated the fact that I instantly liked it so much. The mattes are highly pigmented and blend like a dream. The glittery shades take some work (which I already knew) but once you get them going are absolutely stunning. The packaging is nice, but I think they should have priced it about $10 less for the size. While this has quickly become my new favorite eye palette, I am still wishing and hoping that Nars comes to their senses and goes back to a cruelty free environment.

Review for L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray - 4 weeks, 1 day ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
If I could leave this product less than one star I would. I was hoping this would give me some major root lifting for my fine hair. All it did was make my hair a sticky, tangled mess. Imagine spraying strong hold hairspray directly to your roots and then not being able to run a comb through it and you would have this product.

Review for L'Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Shampoo - 4 weeks, 1 day ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I had high hopes for this shampoo as it targets my 2 biggest issues, but like so many it fell flat for me. Not only did it not help my ends, it made my scalp oilier and flakier than ever before. I was actually shocked at the effect it had. I will say that this does smell great and the price and packaging are excellent. I just wish it had lived up to the hype.

Review for Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm - 2 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
As a caramel fanatic I had to buy this as soon as I saw it. Sadly to me it smells/tastes more like their classic lemony honey than caramel. I don't really get a caramel vibe at all other than the packaging. The balm itself works great like most Fresh lip products. I am never a fan of the pot because I have to constantly dip my finger in and it's not so pleasant if you have longer nails. But the formula itself is a winner.

Review for Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I bought the first batch of this palette when Morphe first released it on their website. Now that Ulta has it I have to admit I am a bit annoyed about the revamped packaging. That being said, this is easily one of the best palettes of the year for me. People like to rag on Morphe because of the influencer codes and all that jazz, but the quality IS great. I have several Morplhe palettes that I love, but this little beauty didn't take long to become my all-time favorite. This collection of shadows has everything any makeup lover would ever need to create a variety of looks from neutral, to smoky, to bold and vibrant. The price is a steal and all the shadows perform beautifully.

Review for Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Smokey - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
As controversial as they are, I am personally a big fan of Huda shadows. So when I saw she was putting out these perfect compact size palettes I knew I wanted to try them out. I went for the Smoky palette because it looked the most different than what I already have by the brand. The formulas are all very similar to the mattes and shimmers from her previous palettes. The thing with Huda shadows is you have to know how to work with them, once you do you will see they perform beautifully. The mini size of this is great for makeup artists to throw in their kit. It doesn't take up much room and it creates several wearable looks in one. The $27 price point is more than reasonable for the amount of shadows you get as well as the quality. Now I find myself wanting the mauve and warm tones palettes as well!

Review for Maybelline Gigi Hadid Lip Liner - 3 months, 1 week ago

Review for: McCall more...
I will admit I wasn't too excited for the Gigi collection once I realized Maybelline had majorly increased their prices simply because her name was on the products. But when I tried out this liner in particular in store, I immediately loved it. It's creamy and the most perfect shade of nude. I wasn't blown away by anything else I tried but I do really like the lip products. Which is no surprise as I am a fan of the brand's lipsticks in general. If you are gonna nab anything from this collection i would definitely go for the lippie items.

Review for Smashbox Always On Metallic Matte Liquid Lipstick - Maneater (red w/ red pearl) - Only at ULTA - 3 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I normally don't splurge on lipstick shades that I know I won't wear on a daily basis, but when I saw this stunning shade online I knew I had to check it out in person. With the holidays in full swing, I have been wanting a new red lipstick, but one that offers a little something extra. The metallic finish on this is absolutely stunning. It adds so much dimension to your lips. The red is a very classic shade with blue undertones. It is bright, but it the metallic shift definitely tones it down a bit. I tried it on before going into a movie and sadly it did not last threw some popcorn snacking and drinking, and did leave a slight stain around the edges of my lips. But if you don't mind having to reapply throughout the day/night, then this own't be an issue. For $24 bucks I probably won't be wearing this a ton but it is PERFECT for the Christmas season and one I will for sure be reserving for holiday events.
