Weird wand, that packs a punch!Read More »
When I say this wand is weird it's weird. It looks like it has 5 round balls in a row.
Where this mascara hits a road block is where it claims to lengthen, volumize, lift AND curl. All for the low low price of $22, GuRl please! This claims to be 100% pure argon oil infused with black pigments, oh and don't forget get 24 hours of wear time. #ICantEvenRightNow.
This mascara needs to decide to be one thing or the other either volumize or lengthen but possibly not attempt to cure cancer with every stroke of its weirdly shaped wand, ya know? This is a great basic mascara, but that's it just basic. It really does a good job at being a basic mascara. It darkens your lashes but that's about it I didn't notice any great benefits it certainly does not last 24 hours. I have oily eyelids but it doesn't flake on me!! Which that is a miracle in its self. I have a major reoccurring problem that mascara always flakes on me! But not this one! Also I only get about 12 hours of wear out of this mascara. Then it starts to smudge. And boy does it smudge. So what I'm saying is I don't plan on buying the full size, this does not beat out my all time HG Benefit Badgal

SoooOooo I guess you get what you pay for right?Read More »
I picked up the Nyx Tinted Brow Mascara at Target on one of those random trips to the store and just wonder around the beauty department in a Fugue State. You know not really having a reason to be there but nevertheless inextricably sucked into the vortex.
This comes in a mascara tube with a small mascara wand. It has 6.5ml of product. A deluxe size mascara sample has on average 2-4ml (0.1oz to 0.13oz). The Benefit Give Me Brow Tinted Brow Gel has 0.10oz and this Nyx one has 0.22oz.
My issue with this is the texture. It's a cream texture. It doesn't feel like a mascara or any other brow gel I've ever tried. I was looking for a lazy day brow taming option but that's not what I got! The color pigmentation was lacking, and the texture never full dries down. It's like if you accidentally put too much on in one are that area won't dry down. All in all its not for me.

Ok what went wrong guiese???Read More »
The rumors of a new release of a powder gelée started in (if I'm not mistaken) January, in Feburary there was speculation that it was the ever-elusive Heat Wave.... By March the disappointment of the harsh reality of a cruel world had settled in.
The feeding frenzy we have come to expect surrounding the Bronze Goddess release that includes a powder gelée came on early and strong. (I'm talking crackers at the duck pond here people.) The fog of HW lifting at least we could console ourselves with a new powder gelée, right?? Right! Well no actually. Because it's NOTHING like a powder gelée!
It's nothing but a cheap, low down dirty trick! This is actually not an Estée Lauder Pure Color Powder Gelée. Oh no! This... This right her... This right here girl is an imposter! Oh yes!
The texture doesn't match, the pigmentation doesn't match, hell the ingredients don't match!!! It's not a highlighter it's not a blush, it's not a face powder, what the hell is it?
Can you feel my disdain? ⬅️ is the point I stopped at two weeks ago, because I can't think of anything to say other than I don't like it, I never will. Also there was this whole group of people that were just absolutely convinced that this was a re-release of Heat Wave..... 💨🎶 wah, wah, waaahhhhh🎶 yeah this is not her hunty.
I've tried all manors of application, and I can't actually see anything on my skin. Oh girl it's deep in here right now. I've even taken a MAC 109 and packed it on like I was stacking pancakes. And guess what??? I didn't see ANYthing. I was not beat for the gods, oh no! This is such a waste of a good product. This collection is a staple in summer and always a huge hit for Lauder, they could have launched this powder as an multipurpose facial powder (similar to MAC beauty powders) and I wouldn't have been mad. They could have said it was just a highlighter and I still wouldn't have been mad, but since they choose to label it as a powder gelee it feels like they intentional tried to pull a fast one.... And THATS what's makes me mad.
Here is a video review of the complete collection from the everso talented Dustin Hunter. BTW'z he agrees with me. Dustin was also gracious enough to provide several of the photos for the blog..... (only the very nice ones, the other ones are from yours truly) He is spreading his product knowledge all over teh interwebZ you can catch him on YouTube, InStagram, Twitter, and ofcourse all over his FACE, and blog!.
