Fragrances -Charlotte Tilbury -Scent of a Dream

on 11/14/2017 1:56:00 PM

Yuck, old ladyish coming from a 55 yr old. Terribly strong, I will stick with tresor or Chloe. This made my eyes water and had an instant headache. My poor little shitzu sneezed her self silly. I will be returning this.

Treatments (Face) -Neostrata -15% AHA Gel Plus


I contains ALCOHOL, it smells ALCOHOL. Alcohol is very harmful to the skin since it break the skin barrier, dry the skin, as a result, get older the skin. Also once you dry your skin, the amount of the sebum will increase and your skin will be even more oily and acneic than before. This is exactly what this product did to my face. Also it didnt show any improvement for my acnes. I couldnt understand why a cosmetic brand add that much EXCESSIVE ALCOHOL to its product. I dont recommend it unless your skin is abnormally oily and needs some alcohol. I will never buy again this expensive yet harmful alcohol denat. concentration.

Brows -It Cosmetics -Brow Power Lift Pencil

on 11/14/2017 1:22:00 PM


This is my HG brow pencil, without a doubt. I just purchased my 2nd pencil and plan to keep this in my stash. I use the matte end to define my brows and the pearl end to highlight not only the brows, but the inner corners of eyes, the middle of my nose. and my cupids bow. It is smooth like butter - goes on and blends like a dream and lasts the entire day. My only beef is the packaging - I wish the lids were a bit more sturdy. They tend to crack easily, which means they can slip off easier as well. I've had that happen a few times and some product does get lost as a result. That said, it's what I've come to expect from It Cosmetics and while it's on the pricier side, you're getting two products whereas Benefit high brow (what I would consider the equivalent) is $18 for only one product. This is the superior of the two, in my opinion. It is truly amazing and a little goes a long way. My first pencil has lasted well over a year and I use it daily. Love this stuff!

Palettes -Sonia Kashuk -Eye Couture Eye On Textured Nudes 4

on 11/14/2017 1:15:00 PM


IMO the best thing about this palette is the 4 glitter shades. It's funny because I didn't think I would use them since I'm in my 40s and the glitter looked chunky in the package. What a nice surprise--the glitter is actually more of a fine shimmer, very subtle and totally wearable for me. The rest of the shades (there are 4 matte and 4 shimmers as well) are very nice too, although like the glitter they too are on the subtle side, which you might not like if you are looking for something more pronounced.

Lip Liners -Rimmel -Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner - Addiction 018

on 11/14/2017 1:06:00 PM


Holy Grail nude lip liner! I'm always impressed by Rimmel lip liners, and this one lives up to its name : Addiction!
It's addictive because it is a perfect flesh nude for my moderately pigmented lips (Mediterranean ancestry, light olive skin), not too pink, not too brown, not too mauve. I can "Exaggerate" my lips a bit without it looking like a certain female politician who in my view came off as ...a bit too much.....
Just a little discreet outlining outside the lip margin, then fill with any lipstick or lip gloss color, and you're good to go. Contains the lip product well within the margins you draw, no smearing or slipping.

Nice touches: twist up dispenser for convenience, slanted margin for accuracy, a nice mix of emollience and color, no tugging or pulling, but no greasiness either.
Price is unbeatable. Believe all the positive reviews on Makeupalley....there are over a hundred of them!

Would be good for all but the palest or darkest of complexions.
All in all, a winner, will continue to use it as long as they make it!

Lipstick -Urban Decay -Vice Liquid Lipstick Comfort Matte

on 11/14/2017 1:01:00 PM

I got this as a deluxe sample in the shade Crimson. I'll keep it short - it's very drying and goes on patchy. I do like the packaging, and the color and the overall pigmentation in general, but this product feels too much like CP's ultra matte formula in that it feels like all the moisture is being sucked out of my lips as time passes. I'm glad this is a sample because there is no way I would purchase the full size.

Moisturizers -Skyn Iceland -Pure Cloud Cream

on 11/14/2017 12:57:00 PM

Bought this after watching a Jamie Geneveive tutorial on YouTube - she seems to like it and I have to say I do like most of the products she recommends. Unfortunately not this - I just don't get this cream, it's very meh! Not particularly moisturising, nothing special. Feels more like a cheaper drugstore product and does not justify its price point. Way better products out there. Thumbs down

Mascara -Charlotte Tilbury -Full Fat Lashes

on 11/14/2017 12:52:00 PM


I LOVE mascara - I HATE this mascara!! Total waste of money. Does nothing for my lashes, no lift, no curl, no volume. I am such a huge CT fan, this is such a huge letdown. Avoid and buy Chanel le Volume instead!

Lipstick -Urban Decay -714 Vice Lipstick (mega matte)

on 11/14/2017 12:49:00 PM


So I thought .... do I really need ANOTHER ref lipstick? I've got Ruby Woo, MAC red and Russian Red as well as some from other brands. But this time of year rolls around and ... I saw this shade on a Jamie Genevieve tutorial and battled with myself about picking this up. I am so glad I did! There is something different about this shade, it's not just red, it's got a subtle orangey tone to it that gets along well with my pale complexion, dark hair and pale green eyes. What I really like about it is that a slick of this makes me look "done" - a coat of mascara and a little bit of highlighter and I'm good to go! Also feels really comfortable on and is long lasting. I highly recommend. Buy buy buy!
