Lip Gloss -Tarte - LipSurgence stain pencil - Enchanted
MsPsylocke 11/9/2012 8:57:00 PM
I love this lip stain pencil. Yes, even with lip primer I had to reapply but the color and minty goodness is hard to deny. I used Too Face lip primer with it because it is very silky and moisturizing. The color is a beautiful sheer red but not that super red berry stain. For my skin NW-15 it's a great color. I always have a hard time finding a bright lip for Fall but not with Enchanted it truly is a lovely moisturizing color. That's why i don't mind applying it more than the usual plus it does leave a stain. I just prefer the full look of color this nice chubby pencil delivers. I'm so happy I found a red I can finally wear! These lip pencils are simply excellent I love my Matte but the sheer are earning a good place in my heart.
I bought this blush off of someone who only sells NYX products and I love it soo much! It is an excellent Winter color! Makes your cheeks looked beautifully flushed. It is a light rose pink color with gold speckles. It reminds me of NARS Orgasm but more of a rosy tint than pink. I'm a NW-15 and it works perfectly with my skin tone. It gives a rosy glow with a sexy finish plus it's long lasting as well. I love the texture it's a soft smooth powder. You also only need a little to get the look you want.I have very pale skin and this gives me the life I need quite well. This is an excellent blush and for the price you can't go wrong. I will repurchase and recommend this color with out a doubt.
So I stopped into MAC because I needed a nude color to go with my smokey eye looks. I'm an NW-15 for reference and I needed a good nude but one that wouldn't wash me out. This color is perfect I use this with Boy Bait and the two together are just amazing. This color is just beautiful it has a sheen but not too much. It leaves my lips so soft and I love the vanilla scent as well. Whenever I do a dark eye I like a nice nude lip and this one really is the ticket for my skin tone. I like that it's a lustre because sometimes a matte will make me look well just not good and them I have to use gloss so I don't look so washed out. Not with High Tea you can wear it alone or with gloss and either way it looks great. It doesn't feather, goes on like a dream, and gives the lips a great color.The only reason I didn't give it 5 lippies was because you do have to apply it often. I'm ok with that I just wish it would last through my morning coffee. I highly recommend this color as I think it would flatter a lot of skin tones. Total repurchase as the color is so versatile and just so pretty.
I thought this would be a great color but not for my NW-15-20 skin it just looks off. If it was a shimmer I could get away with it but the matte it just makes me look well not right. It's a lovely color and someone with the right skin tone it would look great on them. I am hoping to swap this since it's just not for me.
Treatments (Eye) -Signature Club A - Precious Moroccan Argan Oil Eye Serum
MsPsylocke 11/4/2012 9:22:00 AM
So I got this from my Nana who loves this brand I only tried one of there products and it was ok but I figured when she gave me this eye serum I would try it because I was in dire need of an eye treatment since I use crazy products on my eyes ie, primers,glittery shadows, and hard to remove mascara's. My eyes were feeling haggard so I decided to give it a shot. It comes in a small cheap plastic bottle with a blue top and it has a roller to dispense the oil. I actually love how easy it rolls on though a pump would have been more hygienic. It's a clear oil and it feels very soft and light on the eye area. I do not have crows feet or wrinkles near my eyes so I cannot say how it works on wrinkles. What I can say is how amazing my eyes look and feel. After I wash my face at bedtime I put this on to protect my eyes from any Retin A should it get near them. It sinks in beautifully and my under eye area has no circles or rough skin. I was getting a little rough patch on my eyelid and you could see it if I was too heavy handed with my shadow. Now it's gone and my eyes feel so soft and smooth. Putting on my UD primer and shadows now my eyes are able to handle my daily onslaught of eye shadows. I use this every night and I really think it's paying off. My eyes have no red veins and I used to get like one broken capillary under my eye well not any more. I feel this is protecting and preserving my eyes. I didn't think this stuff would work but it does. I will not be repurchasing this and the only reason is because I am going to buy some facial Argan oil I don't think it needs to be brand to work. I am very satisfied and recommend Argan oil for a eye treatment. I just think a health food or beauty supply you can get a similar product so unless you order from this line all the time I would say get it. Because mine was a gift I think I will look for something similar elsewhere.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Creamy Latte Chocolate Cleansing Foam
MsPsylocke 11/3/2012 8:08:00 PM
This is a MISSHA product I don't know why that isn't showing in the review? Ok so when my BB Cream obsession started I was looking at all different products from Korea and came across this cleansing foam. It was pretty cheap at the time about 9USD for 172ml. It contains milk and polyphenols from the chocolate. It is for dry skin and I love it! I can actually say for the first time this is my HG cleanser! All through my starting Retin A my skin was going through hell and I needed a gentle cleanser and I thought well since the BB calms my skin why not a face wash? So on E-Bay I go to Korean sellers who only deal in beauty products and have tons of feedback. Always check the feedback because you want to make sure they are legitimate products from Korea. Anyway I started using this months ago only a pea size drop is need to foam up my whole face. The foam or lather feels so soft on my skin and when I rinse I don't feel dry or tight. Or have that film that some cleansers can leave behind this does not. It rinses clean and removes makeup very well. I then can actually wait 20 minutes no prob to put on my RA because my skin doesn't hurt it feels soft. This stuff is excellent and i would recommend it to anyone with sensitive skin or mature and who are interested in trying other Korean skin care products besides the BB's It doesn't break me out or irritate the occasional spot it really is just and all around great cleanser that I <3 dearly. This product also contains milk which really makes my face soft an the lather is so silky and creamy. I never thought I could write so much about a face was but really it is that good. Order yourself some you won't regret it. It also comes in Strawberry for Detox and GreenTea which I have an use during the day for sebum control. The package is a plain while with pretty lettering easy squeeze tube so you can use all the product which I will and will be ordering more very soon.
BB Cream -MISSHA - M Signature Real Complete B.B. Cream SPF 25 PA++
MsPsylocke 11/2/2012 8:13:00 PM
I have both BB Creams by this brand and for me I love them both but this one I like the coverage and feel much better. I'm pale NW-20 in the summer probably a 15 now and I find shade 13 matches me quite well i have this shade in both creams. For me being super pale I like this one because it evens out my skin tone and matches my neck really well. No two tone look;) What I love Really nice creamy more watery but still nice consistency. The evening out of hyperpigmentation. Missha really delivers on evening out your skin. It hasn't made me break out at all. I found i didn't need powder till about 5 hours after application which is really awesome. I use a powder to set but over all it gives very good oil control and my t-zone is very oily but my skin seemed to like this. The colors match my skin tone better than the red missha. They seem to have a more a fleshy tone. Basically it matches better in my opinion because they just seem to be more american skin toned basically there is no grey which is great. It has wrinkle and moisture care too. It is also great for sensitive skin and my skin is so sensitive being a Retin user. Cons~ I'm not digging the pump model I do like the tube better but will order the bigger size because I use this BB Cream all the time now. One of the more pricey but I see the price going down I think because it is so popular. I'm talking about E-Bay and Amazon not the Missha site which is more pricy. I do and will be recommending this BB cream a lot it is doing wonders for my skin and I will repurchase because I'm very satisfied.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion
MsPsylocke 11/2/2012 2:21:00 PM
My favorite blackest black eye pencil! This bad boy is so smooth and glides on like butter. I love adding this pencil when I do a smokey purple look or just a regular smokey eye or alone with lots of mascara. It's one of these if you love black and I mean pitch black and you want it to stay on your eyes this is your pencil. It lasts forever because it goes on so smooth and once it sets it really doesn't budge at all. I am amazed with how long it lasts. This is a great pencil if you love black and want a good pencil for the money it is pricey but the quality is beyond good. This is an easy 5 lippie pencil because it's smooth,lasts,and doesn't smudge unless you want to smudge it. I really love it and recommend it.
Mascara -Femme Couture - Monster Lash XXL Midnight Black
MsPsylocke 10/28/2012 5:57:00 PM
I can use this mascara but I don't recommend it because some people will hate the curved brush where as others will love it. I can work with any mascara wand for some reason so I can make this work till I find a better mascara. I don't want to bash it because there are some good qualities to this product. No flaking it makes my lashes soft with 2 heavy coats and doesn't feel heavy on my lashes either. It also doesn't get all over the place. It dries fast and the second coat was the trick. Once I went over it with the second coat it was great. What I also like is I didn't need to curl my lashes. It curls them really well. Another good thing is it doesn't irritate my eyes. I was using UD's Big Fatty but i finally realized it was killing my eyes making them tear and water. This mascara does not irritate my eyes and for that I'm grateful till I find a better mascara this will hold me over so I do think this has good qualities if you know how to use it.
Love this color just did my nails for a concert I'm going to. I think it's a great color if you love purples. It has like a brown purple duo effect but stays more purple it's a great Fall color if you like a darker nail. I only needed 2 coats as well and so far 3 days no chips and I beat on my nails. I did use a base coat with a dark color like this I recommend it. Also used the Fast Forward Top Coat which I love because it dries super fast. Side note I'm half way down on the Top Coat and it works like it did on day 1. This color is nice if your not into colors but want something fun or if your like me a total nail color lover. It's good because it doesn't make your hands look old like some colors can. I like this duo because it's really cool in the light and I have gotten a lot of compliments on the color too so I think it's a good one.:)
Want a beautiful color with buttery softy consistency and excellent payoff look no further than Toasted. It's a beautiful warm but light meaning can be used with cool skin tones as well color. It has a bronze undertone with this lovely toasted neutral brown really amazing color and hard to describe fully. Wearing it is what gives it justice it's beautiful even on my pale skin and makes my green eyes really stand out. I could see a lot of warm skinned girls loving this color but what's great is it works with cool toned girls as well. I got this in a palette and fell in love with it. I can use it everyday and that's a great thing. You know you like a color when your using it all the time. This is one of those colors. The buttery softness is just wonderful I love how easily it blends with my other UD shadows. This one is a beauty staple without a doubt.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - One 'n Only Argan Oil Spray Treatment
MsPsylocke 10/26/2012 10:55:00 AM
5 lippie product without a doubt! It smells good and Argan oil is right at the top of ingredients along with 3 other easily readable ingredients. I like that because it doesn't have a lot of well crap in there products. My hair dresser reminded me of something I should know by now read the label!!! I I always do with makeup why wasn't I my hair??? So now since switching to this line my hair has never felt more healthy. I have very long hair with highlights and lowlights and this stuff has amazing heat protection. It's alcohol free which is a must for me. The shine and frizz control are amazing. In the Fall I can get some static from my hair almost being too soft. This spray works like a charm and doesn't weigh my hair down. What is nice is wet it detangles and just makes your life easier after the shower. I find I have almost no tangles or there easy to brush out thus saving me from damaging my hair. I love this One n Only line. It's one of the best I have ever used and I will pay big money for a good product. I really like this because it's reasonable and it has better ingredients then some salon products. So if you want great hair for a great price pick up a bottle you will be really glad because there is something for everyone.One bottle lasts forever but I will purchase again. Highly recommended.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Sweet Pea Body Spray
MsPsylocke 10/24/2012 3:15:00 PM
Love Sweet Pea I have a travel one in my bag right now. Whenever I want to feel fresh I spray this. It's a great scent that really won't offend to many noses because it's not super sweet it's beautiful light and fresh. I use this when I need something on me cause I don't like not smelling like something. It's not my daily fragrance but one I do use a lot especially at the end of Summer this scent just was so perfect in the August heat.Now that it's Fall I am using a light musk but I have to give my love to this scent. When I go to B&B my nose can get really confused with all the scents. Not sweet pea though it's always one I can discern from the others. I will always buy this from Bath and Bodyworks it's a great scent to have in your bag or whenever you need a nice light scent. It's a nice pump bottle too so you only need a spritz or 2 to smell great. Too much of anything is no good so you don't need to go crazy with it. It does last a good amount of time which is another plus. I even have the moisturizing hand sanitizer because I love it so much. I really recommend this.
I have been using this for years now so I figured it was time for a review. I love this scent whether Summer or Fall this is my go to scent. On me it smells very light and fresh. I get ton's of compliments too which surprises me why it has a low rating. The citrus mix with not too much floral is very me. I almost smell like a heavenly orange in there but it's made better by the flowers. I like that it's not sickly sweet I have never been a fan of really sweet perfume. This isn't cloying or anything just a fresh good scent that will give you compliments every time I swear when I wear this it's the best convo starter because women always ask and I love telling. I do say this perfume smells different on everyone due to their body chemistry and Happy really likes me or I it because it works for me. I would use this year round only occasionally using a little CoCo or Chanel No 5 or Magic Noir which is an ultimate favorite of mine. When it's a really special night. If you want a daily perfume that has a light fresh scent that will make you smell delovely and give you tons of compliments, Happy is your scent. When I wear this it does make me happy because I love how I feel with it on. That is what is important to me how a scent makes me feel. You should always feel great when you wear a perfume and this does that!
Primer/ Corrector -Tarte - Clean Slate Poreless 12 hr perfecting primer
MsPsylocke 10/23/2012 11:23:00 PM
Oh I love this stuff a lot. I finally have good skin after being dedicated to Retin A for months still using and now amazingly have clear skin. So I wanted to try a primer that was cruelty free and with out the heavy silicone in it or any not so good things. I put this on and you really only need such a small amount and it literally left me poreless. It was like it just absorbed and made me skin look and feel really good. I did use a BB Cream over it(Baviphat Magic Girls BBC for oily skin) I had a procedure today and I couldn't wear makeup but they didn't say BB cream.;) Well they didn't know I just looked like I had good skin. This primer makes your pores so small and your skin so soft. I would just use it alone it blurs the small imperfections so well. Plus the BB went on like a breeze. I will try it more with my Studio Fix which I think with this primer if you have pretty good skin it makes the au natural look even better or easier for girls with problems like spots or whatever to cover them. I do not like heavy primers but this is so light and actually feels really good for the skin. I didn't wash my face yet and it still feels so soft from this primer. It lasted 12 hours and that was the test and it passed. I will repurchase but I am interested in other cruelty free primers. This one I def recommend because Tarte is a brand that usually delivers and with this primer they do.
