Review for: Detour more...
I have always been a huge fan of Urban Decay. When the full sized  URBAN DECAY Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette was released, I ordered it the same day. I really enjoyed that palette, but there were quite a few colors that I could not use due to my skin tone. Certain pinks didn't work well for me. However, the browns and blues did.

When the  Urban Decay On The Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette trios were released, I immediately ordered the Detour palette, because those colors went perfectly with my eye color, skin tone and hair color. The browns are beautiful, and the shimmers really compliment any look.

I believe the formula for the minis is the exact same as the large palette - easy to blend, super soft, and lots of pigment. There was a small amount of fallout, but I don't mind. 

For $25 dollars, you can create endless looks and styles, and it is small enough to toss in your bag. This is one of my more favored UD palettes, and I have already ordered a second as a backup. 

I highly recommend the Detour Urban Decay On The Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette for everyone.

Review for IT BRUSHES for ULTA Your Celebration Brush Set - 1 month ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
These brushes are great for their price and are very easy to use. The are extremely adorable, and a good choice for the holiday season. I especially like that they are cruelty-free.

I've used them for a while now and so far I haven't noticed any shedding. That's always a plus. The eyeshadow brush works great wet or dry, but I recommend wetting it a little first if you really want to pack on some pigment.

The bag is cute but seems kind of cheaply made, as my zipper keeps getting stuck.
Giving these a 4 out of 5 because I feel like the bag could have been a better quality, and also because I wish there was another eyeshadow brush.
Review for Lime Crime Venus Xl 2 Eyeshadow Palette - No Color - 1 month ago

I have the Venus and Venus II but this is my first Venus XL purchase. I used to be pretty unsure of Lime Crime but to be honest, when I saw this color scheme, I couldn't resist. The olive greens and soft browns drew me in quick.

I purchased this online and when it came I was extremely taken aback by its beauty. I was not expecting the colors to be so pigmented, and the roses and pinks really took me by surprise.

Some people are upset that there are only 4 matte shades, but I don't mind at all. There are so many unique shades in here that it was not a deal breaker for me. 
I'm so glad to see colors that are not very common, like the greens. 

I think there is a little fallout but the shades are highly pigmented and are easy to blend. I do recommend using a primer, because I have noticed the color pops more and stays on much longer if you do. I think the price is a little high, but overall, I am very satisfied with the product. The  Lime Crime Venus Xl 2 Eyeshadow Palette - No Color is now my favorite palette in my collection.

Review for Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara - 1 month ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
The original  Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara was and still is my ultimate favorite mascara ever. I am really glad that they created a waterproof formula, though. It is truly waterproof, so if you don't like to use a makeup remover, then this is not for you! 

I have to use  Clinique Take The Day Off™ Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips to get this mascara off at the end of the day. But that's perfectly fine with me! 
It makes my lashes long, fluffy and sexy with just a few swipes. I definitely recommend this.

Review for Victoria's Secret Pink Coco Stick Coconut Oil Nourishing Balm - 1 month ago

I was really disappointed in this product. I purchased the Victoria's Secret Pink Coco Stick Coconut Oil Nourishing Balm to help my dry skin in the winter. I really liked the packaging because it was easy to apply without getting greasy hands.

However, it dried up super quickly and didn't leave any hydration to my skin. A total waste of $14.50

Review for Kenra Platinum Dry Shampoo - 1 month ago

I typically don't buy expensive hair care but I was continuously growing tired of the drug store brands I usually buy. I took a risk and bought this and I am so thankful I did. Not only does it smell great, but it soaks up dirt and oil spectacularly. I will definitely be using this brand from now on. Kenra Platinum Dry Shampoo

Review for Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - 1 month ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
Legit, this primer has changed my makeup game overnight. I have always had "greasy" eyelids, I never understood why my eyeliner would turn into raccoon eyes as the day wore on or why my eyeshadow smudged. I have hooded eyes also, which only added to my nightmare situation. This primer seriously put an instant stop to all of those problems. I put my makeup on at 7am for work and it is now 9pm, 14 hours later, and my eye makeup is still exactly how it looked this morning. Pair this with All Nighter Spray and you have got yourself a #greatmakeupday.

Review for Urban Decay Nocturnal Vice Lipstick - 1 month ago

Perfect formula, non-drying and long lasting. I don't much care for the smell, but it dissipates pretty quickly. I will definitely be buying it again in multiple shades. It is kind of pricey for a lipstick, but you do get what you pay for.

Review for China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat - 1 month ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
this was an okay product. It made my nail polish last longer than it would if I didn't use a base coat, but it did start chipping within 5 days. I was hoping it would work better, considering the hefty price that came along with it.
