Lip Gloss -New York Color - Liquid Lip Shine in Prospect Pink
MissLerina 1/19/2011 10:33:00 PM
Color: baby pink with shimmer Pros: pigmented, not sticky Cons: very frosty This is one of their latest shades and this one is no different than their previous liquid lip shine in "pink kiss". It's extremely frosty and unflattering. This one does appear more pink on my lips than "pink kiss", but it's still way too frosty for my liking. Will not repurchase.
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush
MissLerina 1/16/2011 11:14:00 PM
I use this brush to apply liquid foundation and it works very well. It gives me very even and excellent coverage. The brush itself is also of excellent quality. I have experienced no shedding! Just be sure to clean it well and leave plenty of time to dry. Will repurchase.
Color: soft rosy pink with shimmer Pros: long-lasting, not sticky Cons: too sheer This is similar to the plumping version in "plumped rose", only much softer. I don't know why these are so sheer, though. It takes a few coats for this to show up on my lips and they aren't even that pigmented. Will not repurchase.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze in Perennial Pink
MissLerina 1/11/2011 2:59:00 PM
Color: medium pink Pros: pigmented, long-lasting, great coverage Cons: scent is overwhelming, tacky, drying Comments: Nice flattering pink, but formula dries out my lips too much and is uncomfortable to wear as it feels rather heavy and becomes tacky. Will not repurchase.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze - 535 Eternal Blossom
MissLerina 1/11/2011 2:54:00 PM
Color: peach with shimmer Pros: pigmented, not sticky, long-lasting Cons: scent is overwhelming I like the formula and it does last long, but the color just didn't work for me. Will not repurchase.
Color: bright fuchsia Pros - pigmented - creamy - great staying power Cons - drying Comments This is a very pigmented and gorgeous bright pink shade. Great quality for its price. It is incredibly bright, almost neon on my lips. Very pretty and fun color. Will repurchase.
Selected shades: fashion ave fuchsia, prospect pink Color: fuchsia with shimmer, baby pink with shimmer Pros: very pigmented, not sticky, moisturizing, long-lasting Cons: prospect pink is very frosty These are their latest shades and I like them more than the original ones. Fashion Ave Fuchsia is so pigmented! It's a gorgeous hot pink shade, but the shimmer doesn't really show up on my lips (which I don't mind). Prospect Pink is very similar to their original shade Pink Kiss because it is very frosty; the only difference between the two is that this one shows up more pink and doesn't look white on my lips. I intend on only repurchasing the fuchsia shade.
Selected shades: bellini (pale nude), crystal lilac (lavender), hot pink (shimmery fuchsia), peony (shimmery peach), sunset peach (shimmery peach) Pros - pigmented - not sticky Cons - leaves glitter residue on lips - shimmery shades feel gritty Comments: I love the fact these are not sticky, but these are the type of glosses that work best when paired with a lipstick or liner. They can feel gritty on the, but less so if mixed with another lip product. I like these, but not by themselves. My favorite is Crystal Lilac...perfect gloss for all my light blue-based pinks! Will repurchase.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Color Sensational Lip Gloss (All Colors)
MissLerina 1/8/2011 2:16:00 AM
Selected shades: born with it (sheer beige pink), pink perfection (rosy pink), cranberry cocktail (brick red), lucious pink (sheer pale baby pink), high-tech plum (barbie pink) Pros: moisturizing, not sticky, long-lasting, nice scent Cons: none Comments: These are great quality glosses, however the lighter shades are quite sheer. It does take a couple of layers to achieve full opacity, but it doesn't feel uncomfortable when wearing more. It's a very rich, creamy gloss without any stickiness. I only plan to re-purchase Lucious Pink and High-Tech Plum. Born With It was way too sheer, Cranberry Cocktail bled like crazy, and Pink Perfection just wasn't the pink I was looking for. Will repurchase.
Color: peachy pink w/ shimmer Pros: pigmented, long-lasting, moisturizing, not sticky, SPF Cons: none Comments: This looks very natural on me. It can look more rosy, if layered on thick. I love the formula of these glosses. They're very comfortable to wear and offer some nice shades. Will repurchase.
Color: peachy pink with shimmer Pros: pigmented, not sticky Cons: leaves glitter residue on lips, no shine Comments: This isn't a gloss at all...because there is no shine. There's just shimmer. Formula is nice - not sticky at all. I won't wear this on its own, but looks great when paired with a nude lip. Will repurchase.
Selected shades: fairytale (bright red coral), darling (medium pink), heavenly (medium coral pink), temptress (bright watermelon pink), enchantress (barbie pink w/ shimmer) Pros: very pigmented, creamy, glide on effortlessly, long-lasting Cons: not very moisturizing, stains the lips Comment: Very long wearing lipsticks with a very strong staining effect. Do not keep rubbing your lips to remove these as it will only worsen the stain. Remove with oil based cleanser and apply Aquaphor overnight. My lips have always returned to normal pigmentation after. Will repurchase.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Liplicious Watermelon Sorbet
MissLerina 12/28/2010 4:18:00 PM
Color: watermelon pink with shimmer Pros: long-lasting, nice scent, not too sticky Cons: sheer Comments: This isn't as bright as it looks in the tube, it's pretty sheer. I also like that the scent isn't overwhelming like most of these glosses are. I would have liked more color, though. Will not repurchase.
Lip Treatments -MAC - Tinted Lip Conditioner - Petting Pink
MissLerina 12/27/2010 10:59:00 PM
Color: sheer, natural pink Pros: long-lasting, SPF, not sticky Cons: too sheer, pricey I like the color, but I have to repeatedly apply it to my lips in order to get the color to show. It's not as moisturizing as I expected and definitely not worth the price. I do like that you get a lot of product, though. I'll stick to my Victoria's Secret Lip Balm. Will not repurchase.
Concealers -Revlon - Age Defying Moisturizing Concealer (New) [DISCONTINUED]
MissLerina 12/27/2010 10:54:00 PM
Pros: doesn't cake/settle into fine lines, blends well, SPF Cons: a little sheer Comments: Love that this stuff is very easy to blend and doesn't make my under eyes look dry. It's not too pigmented, but it works for me. I like that it doesn't accentuate my fine lines like most concealers do, so that's a huge plus. Will repurchase.
