Andrea S.'s (LivingDeadBarbie) Beauty Product Reviews
One Of My Favourites
This is my go-to lipstick for dark smokey eyes - the PERFECT nude! It's of the Satin texture, the only downside is that it tends to settle into lip lines after a few hours' wear but I certainly don't mind the touch-ups.
Not all they're hyped up to be...
I have three of these - Carbon, Omega and Sketch.
I HATE Carbon. You'd think it would be a really intense black but it is barely pigmented and you need to build it up A LOT to get a strong black. It comes out very faint. I have a £1 MUA black eyeshadow that has richer pigmentation than Carbon.
Sketch comes out beautifully - it's so smooth, pigmented and a dream to blend. Omega is also great to blend and the taupe colour is great - it's so multi-purpose. I sometimes use it for contour as well as for the crease of my eye when I'm having a "quiet makeup" day!
LITERALLY CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT!
I can't stress how good this stuff is! I never, ever do my nails anymore without two coats of it underneath and as a top coat. It really helps because my nails are so long they are prone to breakage, flaking and spltting at the sides and with this on it never happens, even with a really cheap, not so great polish on top or by itself on natural nails!
In this photo, I used this as a base coat & topcoat on every finger apart from my thumb, which I used a Revlon top coat on. I had it on for a week & a half and as you can see, none of the nails I used Hard As Nails on have chipped except my thumb! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves nail art or just a high-shine, chip free finish.
Can't get enough!
I've got the Dark Soul, Full-force Violet and Pink Opal pigments. Buildable with excellent blendability. I love that you can apply it wet or dry depending how strong you want it to be. I also love how you can mix the pigments! At my lashlines for this look I mixed Dark Soul with a matte black pigment I have and it looked great, too.
I got "Narcissus" which is a real "Barbie pink". I was surprised at how pigmented AND smooth it is - it glides on easil, softens my lips and has a slightly glossy finish too. I love the colour and I'll definitely be buying more of these!
Does exactly what it promises!
It smells lovely and the Porcelain shade matched me PERFECTLY. Its only downfall is that it hasn't got great coverage but that's because I have had problem skin. In saying that, it was beneficial to my skin as it's non-comedogenic. It gives a beautiful, long-lashing, shine free finish and I'd recommend this foundation to anyone who has oily skin!
I used this shampoo in combination with the conditioner & mousse. My hair is long but flat. I followed the instructions exactly as they were written and used these products regularly till they were finished.
I didn't notice too much of a difference to be honest. My hair had the TINIEST little bit of lift at the roots, but no noticeable volume or 'thickening effect' as promised. It smelled weird too. I won't be buying it again.
I use this liner every day to tightline, fill in my waterline and blended out on my lower lashline. It's an extremely deep black and glides on so smoothly. It's very easy to apply - soft, creamy, pigmented and long lasting; everything you'd look for!
This thick, congealed-effect blood is easy to apply and looks fantastic. I use it at college, in my kit and for photos and it looks perfect every time! I did this at college on my friend John, http://www.youtube.com/LaViandeFrai... .
