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!.

Ok somebody please, please tell me why this was THE movie too see??
Waaaay toooo HIPster, and not in a cool IDGAF but secretly your opinion means everything to me kinda way.
The style in which it was shot made this look and feel like an upscale porn or a really good YouTube video. NOT a major motion picture. The worst movie I've seen in years.
The acting was meh, the highly stylized over exposed film cinametography was meh, the acting was meh (oh wait did I mention that one). I just don't get it!!! Why was this movie so heralded and applauded?? Like what? We all know that a lot of ppl want to be famous, who aren't. A lot of ppl want to be rich and have nice things, who aren't. But doesn't make a compelling movie my friend.
The ONLY saving grace was Emma Watson and her aKtin sKillZ. Her lines and scenes were the highlight of the movie. I suggest just go to YouTube type in "Best of Emma Watson in The Bling Ring" and boom save yourself the 90 minutes of pain. Her dead pan delivery was absolutely amazing and dead on, if you know the source material. Idk maybe besides the fact that Emma IS a great actress, there is coverage a plenty of Alexis Neiers (the girl in which her character is based). They be bat shit cray yo!!
Like DUH, totes skippable y0!
