Review for: SEIZE THE GRAY more...
I love this nail polish line! The prices are really great, and the formula is fantastic. The polish doesn’t feel too thick, but it typically gives full coverage in one coat for all their shades. It’s great for stamping! The brush is super wide and curved at the tip to fit nicely into the cuticle area, and it’s great for getting full coverage in minimal strokes. The shade Seize the Grey is such a pretty pale grey shade, and it’s a great cool toned neutral. Also, the scent of this is different from most polishes! It’s not strong or overpowering at all, so if you need to do your nails around someone who is sensitive to strong smells, this is a great solution!! I recommend it 100%!
I’m in love with nail stamping, and Born Pretty has some of the best prices for stamping tools and plates. This clear jelly stamper is huge, you can easily see the design placement through the stamp, and it’s very squishy so applying the design is very easy. One issue I have is that it doesn’t pick up thin lines or designs with regular polish as well as some smaller, firmer stamps I have. But it works beautifully with stamping polish, and I like to use it for applying chrome powders as well. The other issue is that shipping from China takes an inordinately long amount of time. I ordered on January 1st and didn’t get my package until February 16th. They warn that it takes a month to arrive, but the listing said it would only take 1-2 days to be shipped. It took them 26 days to actually get it to their postal service. So it shouldn’t have taken as long as it did, and I paid an extra $3 for a tracking number but the one they gave me wasn’t valid. Basically, you get what you pay for here. They do have a US warehouse and an amazon shop where you can get their products shipped faster with prime shipping, but the items are more expensive. My advice is to be ready to wait a very long time for shipping to the US, and to use light pressure when scraping and picking up the design with this stamper.
Review for Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, 0.5 oz - 1 week, 4 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
This topcoat is my go-to for all my home manis! It really smooth out any uneven bits, covers thick glitters flawlessly, and it dries so quickly. It sets to the touch within 30 seconds for me, and the nail is dry enough to dig around in my purse to get my phone out within just a couple of minutes. The polish underneath dries fully along with the topcoat, and you don’t have to worry about fingerprints, smudging, or dents. It has a very strong nail polish scent, but it’s really worth the payoff. The price is super reasonable, and you can find it at Sally Beauty, Target, Ulta, and most drugstores so it’s very easy to find. This is an essential for all home manicures!
Review for NIVEA Cherry Lip Care - 3 weeks, 1 day ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
This lip balm has the perfect amount of tint and nostalgic cherry scent! I don’t always want to put on a full liquid lip, especially when I’m headed out to eat or just running errands. So this balm adds the perfect touch of color to help me look like I haven’t just left the crypt. It keeps my lips hydrated and soft, and the scent is like a candied cherry but not too overpowering. I love to keep one in my purse to retouch on the go.

Review for: Taupe more...
I really love the color and formula of this brow pencil! The taupe shade is great for dark blonde to light brown shades that pull a bit ashy. I love that it comes with a massive spoolie brush on one end to help shape the brows before going in to fill them in. My only complaint is that the tip is fairly bulky. After the manufactured point wears down, it’s a very blunt tip and you can’t get very fine strokes like with other retractable brow pencils. The color payoff is great, however, and I love the formula so it’s still in heavy rotation! The price is absolutely unbeatable, so it’s worth it to pick up for sure.

Review for: Flexitarian more...
I love the shade of this highlighter (Flexitarian) which is a nice champagne color. I just struggle with the formula being somewhere between a cream and a powder. I feel like it lays down too much product when I apply it with my fingers, and yet I don’t get enough when I use a brush. This is probably just user error, since this highlighter is hugely popular, but I just think it comes with a bit of a learning curve. The price is amazing for how much you get, and it looks stunning as a shadow or an inner corner highlight.

Review for Physicians Formula Eye Booster™ - 3 weeks, 1 day ago
The application of this liquid liner is sooo smooth! It gives a fine line in a really pigmented black shade without too much hassle, even for someone with shaky hands like me. The long felt tip helps smooth out any wobbly strokes, and the fine point helps me get into the inner corners without creating too much bulk. The price is a bit steep for a drugstore brand, but it goes on sale fairly often so I managed to scoop mine up during a 40% off sale at Rite Aid. I’m so glad I did! This comes highly recommended by youtuber Thataylaa, and I can see why!
Review for COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Setting Powder - 3 weeks, 1 day ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
After watching a YouTube video with Tati Westbrook, I picked up the shade Buff Beige to use as a bronzer on my fair skin. It works really well and blends out like a dream! The shade is warm without pulling too orange (I have cool undertones so I struggle to find a bronzer that suits me). So while I can’t attest to how it would wear as an all over powder, it wears beautifully as a bronzer! I like to use it as a transition shade on my lids as well. There is no noticeable scent, and the price point is very reasonable. Definitely a good buy!

Review for Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Blush - 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Review for: Natural Glow more...
I would buy this blush again just for the scent alone. It smells amazing! Like a tropical vacation, but not in a cloying car-air-freshener kind of way. The formula is really smooth and blends beautifully. This shade (Natural Glow) is just a tiny bit sheer for my tastes, but I love to use it as a very subtle highlight or a blush topper to add a touch of glow to matte products. The brush it comes with is no good, and the packaging is bulky, but the actual product is just so fantastic that I don’t care. It is a bit pricey, but Physicians Formula products go on sale fairly often at the drugstore so keep an eye out for bogo offers and scoop up their butter bronzer too!
