Kaci W.'s (kacibrianna) Beauty Product Reviews
I bought this for my Celebrity Look-Alike day for school, and wore it from 6am to 4pm or so, and the only downside was minor flaking on my inner lid/crease. Other than that? It didn't smear, crease, fade, or otherwise break down. I love this!
Simply put, they're amazing!
I got two of the OCC Lip Tars for Christmas this year: NSFW and Tarred. If you're new to Lip Tars, be very, very careful in how much you apply! I thought I didn't use a lot, and it ended up being way too much. If you allow these to fully dry, they can last for ages, but as I said, if you use too much, it can be messy. They can transfer onto drinks and foods, and end up everywhere. But the pigmentation is fantastic, and I can't compare them to anything else I own. The only downside, I'd say, is that they CAN take a while to dry. For me, if I use the appropriate amount, they take 20-30 minutes to compeltely dry, and if I use too much product, they can take nearly an hour.
I got this for Christmas this palette for Christmas this year and haven't stopped playing with it! The colours are intensely pigmented! There's one colour, a hot pink, that was so pigmented that it stained my skin from the swatch. It's insane. It's got every colour I could ask for, and for the price they're at, it's a wonder more people don't have this palette. It's got a nice gradient for nearly every colour of the rainbow, including the Black-White gradient. My favourite colours are the two blacks and a steel-gray colour. The two make a magnificent smoky eye. <3
I have only one Essie polish, "Devil's Advocate". That colour is one I have NEVER seen before. It's a super dark reddish, purple-ish colour. It's quite sheer, so you need more than one coat, but no more than three are necessary. Seriously, this polish is my go-to for a bold nail. I love pairing it with "Give me the first dance" by OPI. The contrast between the colours is really freaking awesome - dark red/purple and silver. Either way, I really want to try more of their polishes. Definitely a win for me!
I have the waterproof version of this mascara, and I love it! It doesn't clumb or leave flakes, and doesn't come off if you've been crying (which is a plus, believe me!). I love it for days when I just want simple makeup because it's really dark and adds length to my lashes with just one coat. (Or course, I apply two coats because it makes my lashes more dramatic.) All of my friends agree that this is an amazing mascara :P
I tried them out as a last-hope because my lips were so chapped because of a lip-gloss I'd been using. I heard about them from Michelle Phan on YouTube, and my local WalMart was selling them, so I bought one (Lemon Drop flavoured with SPF 15). It hydrated my lips completely in only two days or so and, honestly, I hate using other lip balms/chap sticks now. My friends also tried this product out with me and we all agree that the packaging is adorable, it's DEFINITELY affordable, and works great. I've purchased four now <3
