Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Passion Fruit Guava
MissLerina 7/20/2010 3:13:00 AM
Color: coral pink with shimmer Pros: long-lasting, not sticky, nice scent Cons: sheer Comments: Pretty color, but too sheer for my liking. If it were more pigmented, this would be the perfect coral shade. Will not repurchase.
Color: purple pink Pros: long-lasting, pigmented Cons: sticky, poor applicator Comments: Pretty color and long-lasting formula. It's a pigmented purple-pink that looks great alone or over a pink lipstick. The only thing I don't care for is the applicator (round tip). Will repurchase.
Lipstick -Rimmel - Lasting Finish - Pink Champagne
MissLerina 7/20/2010 1:23:00 AM
Shade description: baby pink PROS - pigmented - long-lasting CONS - drying COMMENTS: Pretty shade of pink; very pigmented and applies well. Will repurchase.
Color: pale nude Pros: creamy, pigmented, not sticky, SPF Cons: none Comments: This stuff is very moisturizing and long-lasting. It's the perfect nude. It does settle into lines, but a lip balm underneath helps with that. This is best paired with nude or pink lipsticks. Will repurchase.
Pros: moisturizing, affordable, minimizes lip lines, good for wearing under glosses and lipsticks, SPF, tingling sensation Cons: terrible smell Comments: The only thing I cannot stand about this product is the smell! Fortunately, it doesn't linger. It does a very good job at moisturizing and is great for wearing under other lip products. I also love the tingly feel it gives. Will repurchase.
Color: beige nude Pros: long-lasting, great dupe for MAC's C-Thru Cons: sheer, sticky, difficult to blend Comments: I find this very difficult to apply evenly without the use of my fingers. The color itself is quite sheer, as well. Will not repurchase.
Pros: pigmented, matte, smooth, long-lasting Cons: hard to find sometimes (most beauty supply stores don't carry a lot of NYX products) I haven't purchased a NYX eye shadow in so long, but I recently re-visited my local beauty supply store and picked this up because I really needed a good black eye shadow. This is amazing! NYX has such amazing quality at affordable prices. I love how dark this is and definitely prefer this one over my MAC. Love love love! Would repurchase.
Color: nude pink with shimmer Pros: long-lasting Cons: sticky, difficult to blend, sheer Comments: The consistency is very thick, making it difficult to apply and the color itself is too sheer. Will not repurchase.
Foundations -New York Color - Smooth Skin Liquid Makeup
MissLerina 7/7/2010 2:40:00 AM
Pros: affordable Cons: formula too thin/watery, not enough coverage, made skin look greasy Didn't like anything about this stuff. I prefer more coverage with my foundation and this offered very little to no coverage on me. It did give my skin a dewy appearance, but that quickly turned into an oil slick. Would not repurchase.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Last Matte Lipstick in 901B Think Pink
MissLerina 7/6/2010 5:03:00 PM
Color: bubble gum pink Pros: pigmented, creamy, long-lasting Cons: drying, cheap packaging Comments: This is drying, but I always top my lipsticks with a gloss...so that's not a problem for me. It's a very pigmented bubble gum pink - my kind of color. My only real problem with it is the packaging...the tube wiggles inside and doesn't always scroll up. Will repurchase.
Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand - Monistat - Chafing Relief Powder-Gel
MissLerina 6/17/2010 2:51:00 AM
Pros: smoother skin, makeup goes on/looks better Cons: doesn't control oil in warmer weather (best for combination/dry skin) I love this stuff, but is best when used in the winter months. It doesn't control my oil entirely during the summer. I still have to touch up, but no more than once. I prefer to use Milk of Magnesia during the summer, since it works as a primer and a mattifer. Anyway, this stuff is great at smoothing out any dry patches on your face and it does help my makeup last all day, but mostly when my skin is a bit drier. Will repurchase.
Pros: affordable, pigmented, long-lasting Cons: none A little goes a long way with this blush. It's very pigmented and stays put. I love the doll-like appearance it gives my cheeks. This is definitely an item I plan on buying again and again. Will repurchase.
Pros: affordable Cons: accentuates dry areas, doesn't last I used this stuff years ago and hated it. It never stayed on for long and made any dry areas of my face even worse. This stuff just made my skin look gross. Would not repurchase.

Color: frosty baby pink Pros: not sticky, creamy Cons: too frosty Comments: This shade looked almost white on my lips and very frosty. Will not repurchase.
