Ariane C.'s (burlesquelightsaber) Beauty Product Reviews
I do really love this product. I noticed how quickly it breaks down gel eyeliner out of a synthetic brush. It's as if the gel liner was butter that was melting away. I like the smell of it, it smells clean rather than perfumed. I just wish that it had a spray nosel like the Sephora brush cleanser so that you don't waste any liquid, which can happen easily with the pouring spout thing.
ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE
I love love love this eyeliner! It's extremely pigmented and smooth. It's a perfect dupe for the Stila Eye Kajal. The black is very intense. It glides right on to the lash line and the water line and stays put quite well. It can smudge very easily if you're trying to create a more sultry or smokey look. I do recommend wearing an eyeshadow base for this if you have oily lids, because it can transfer onto the crease. This is easily what i would consider to be a "rock chick" type eyeliner. I will be repurchasing!
one of mac's best products
I love pigments because of the amazing colors they come in, and their versatility. I really wish hadn't made the pigment jars so much smaller while keeping the price the same. I bought my big jar of Golden Olive in 2008, and use it ALL THE TIME and i've barely made a dent in it. If you can find a color you know you'll use a lot, these are really worth the investment because they will last you for a long time! :) Love forever!
will not be repurchasing
When I first bought it, I could only get away with using the "define" wand because the volumize wand was making my lashes clump no matter what I tried. I used the define wand then the volumize wand as the packaging recommends, and it left a mess of spider lashes, and it was painful to take off my makeup at the end of the day because of it. As it dried out and had less product in the tube, it was actually a lot nicer and easier to use. The defining wand does leave really nice lower lashes, but doesn't make my top lashes thick enough. It did leave my eyelashes feeling soft, if it wasn't clumped. It did also really keep the curl all day as well.
I got this because I was low on cash but still wanted a good scented cruelty free shampoo and came across this. I used the conditioner for a while so I figured I'd try the shampoo too. The smell is so beautiful and rich! It lasts after the shower too so I smell pretty all day! It makes a very full and rich lather. It leaves my oily hair very clean and easy to untangle. I will be repurchasing for sure!
favorite mac product
When people ask me what they should try from MAC when they go there for the first time, I always say Fluidline. I have blacktrack and dip down and I use one or the other everyday. I don't even really bother with pencils anymore. They last amazing on the lid, as an eyeshadow base, and on the waterline. They can create the perfect line and the perfect wing for any look. There is such a huge range of colours now that there really is something for everyone. I love these and will purchase them forever. Also, if you have more mature skin, and your lids are a bit wrinkly and looser, this is a really great product to get a smooth line. My mom uses this stuff and loves it, and she has a massive scar on her eye lid but doesn't have trouble with this liner. Love!
good hand soap
This is one of LUSH's most hydrating soaps. It's a very floral scent, which I like, but not all over my body, so I used it mostly as hand soap. It is very moisturizing and leaves it's scent behind for a while. When used with a loofa it creates a lather that isn't overly rich. If you're into thicker soaps with a floral scent, this is for you. I personally wouldn't get it again though.
favorite bath bomb
This baby is a real treat to use in your bath tub. I'm a huge fan of sweet smells, and this is pretty much Honey I Washed the Kids in a bath bomb. It does make the water yellow, which I know can weird some people out, but it doesn't bother me. It leaves your skin insanely soft and smelling divine for hours. It's quite big, so you could probably cut it in half to get more than one use out of it. Every time I crave a bath bomb, this is what I go for!
I am in love with this soap! I even made my boyfriend use it a few times because I love the smell so much. It's a very neutral smell that can be enjoyed by both men and women. It's nice and minty yet herbally so that it isn't over powering. It really leaves the skin clean and soft. When used with a loofa, it makes a thick rich lather, which makes it even more of a pleasure to use. I really recommend this soap to all!
good for travel
I used this for years in conjunction with Seanik solid shampoo. While I do love the smell, breaking off pieces to mash it into a paste isn't ideal when you're in a rush or half asleep. I didn't find it to be overly hydrating for my hair, nor did I find it to make a noticeable difference when it came time to untangle my hair. Since releasing the pucks that fit in the steel tins, it's made traveling with these babies much easier. If you have normal or oily hair, you might like this a lot. For the rest of us, it's really nothing special.
