Lip Gloss -Revlon - ColorStay Mineral Lipglaze Continuous Coral 542
ZoSo 10/25/2011 12:55:00 PM
Let me just start off and say this a great dupe for MAC Cyndi Lipglass. There are bloggers who think this is either a little more orange and some say it's exact. It will depend on your natural lip color for payoff. Upon application it is slightly sticky and wet. It dries down to a matte dry feel. The doe applicator can grab a little too much at times but it is fine. It can last on me up to 4 hours. It's a redder based coral than some typical pink ones. I find it goes well with NARS Amour blush. I will buy again. Especially with drugstore deals.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This has a nude tone fair,neutral face. It doesn't interfere w/ the color of my shadows. It makes them bright. They last all day w/ minimal fading. UPDATE- I have found that a good chafing gel works just as well if not better than this over priced product. So I will not be repurchasing.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

Is this too good to be true? It doesn't clump, smudge, or flake. It separates with ease and it holds a curl all day. The formula isn't too stiff or soft. I use the sides of the brush. I love the flexible end too. It moves perfectly with application. Everything about this mascara is perfect! I threw out all my others. This is it. My search is over! Holy Grail!
A beautiful medium coral rose on my NC15 skin. It looks very natural without the burn look. The sheertone formula is just perfect because you can build it. I love pairing this with Hot Tahiti lipstick. This blush lasts on me the whole day. I will always have this in my collection. Holy Grail!
This is a medium coral rose in a glaze formula. I find it's a little more pigmented for a glaze and it lasts longer too. I don't detect any heavy shimmer nor is it matte, just satiny. The formula is just perfect for the shade. It leaves a nice stain after wards that can be topped with gloss. I love this with Pinch Me blush! A must try and buy. I think it will flatter a lot of skintones. Definitely a holy grail for me!- NC15
I picked up Late Night, which is the green teal. I was really excited to try this but the excitement disappeared when I finally did. It's too wet. It didn't clump because it was so wet. It didn't curl nor did it do anything but hang on my lashes. The wand isn't full and big, it's long and thin with a slight curve. The color was vague on. I suppose a white primer would work better beforehand. I may try that. I'm on the fence with this one. I will update when I give it a second chance..... Update-Returned this, it just wasn't worth it =-(
I just have to add to the glowing reviews for this gorgeous palette! The quality is amazing! The texture is a wonderful, neither too soft or hard. The staying power is very long! I love LORAC palettes, they never disappoint me! The palette is encased in a gorgeous black sequin case. I must note this blush does remind me of Deep Throat. I find this blush better, it shows up on my fair complexion. I love it!

Mascara -Cover Girl - Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara
ZoSo 10/17/2008 4:16:00 PM
My search continues for a thickning mascara. I found this wet, not too wet like most but enough that it did not hold a curl. I did not like the brush, it caused marks on my lids from swishing. It did not thicken my lashes. It flaked within minutes of drying. Not to mention it irritated my eyes. This is a no go for me =(
Mascara -Max Factor - Lash Perfection Volume Couture [DISCONTINUED]
ZoSo 10/3/2008 11:23:00 AM
Well my search continues after trying this one. It's just too wet to hold a curl for me. I didn't get much of anything even after curling my lashes. They fell flat and goopy. No volume, no nothing but wet lashes that smudged on me. I didn't like the brush either, too soft, it couldn't even lift my lashes. Try again!
I love this blush! It's a gorgeous matte red orange on my NC15 skin! It leans toward the red side rather than the orange. I don't get the burnt look from it either. I have no idea where some are saying this is pink? I detect no pink just a red orange. It lasts on me all day. I love to wear it with my NARS Babe lipgloss. Holy grail!
Conditioner -Suave - Professionals Vibrant Blonde Conditioner ] [DISCONTINUED]
ZoSo 9/24/2008 12:36:00 PM
I really wanted to like this! After using it for a while now, it's not a buy again conditioner. It is like the John Frieda, which I don't like either. It doesn't moisturize enough for me. I have to use alot of it. This isn't for my fine, wavy, color treated hair =(
Eye Shadow -Chanel - Irreele Duo - 70 Emerald Coast
ZoSo 9/22/2008 9:21:00 PM
I did not like this duo. I wanted too especially after paying that ridiculous price. I should have known better after trying every eyeshadow quads, duos, singles, Chanel makes. They have no pigmentation. I can't build the color because of the texture. The only thing I like is the packaging. Even it has it's perks with the awkard angle. I do love Chanel's blushes and lips. I wished I could say the same for the eyeshadows.They are not worth the price for me.
This was just like DiorShow. However, I did not like Dior either. This was too wet! So wet that it didn't hold my curled eyelashes. It never felt dry to the touch. It smeared so bad that it gave me raccon eyes within a hour of wear. Not to mention it made them itch too. Sadly my search continues and this will be returned to the store.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide on eyeliner in 1999
ZoSo 6/5/2008 1:12:00 PM
I really enjoy this eyeliner! It's a plum, it reminds me of MAC's e/s in Trax. I like to use this for a less dramatic liner since it's medium-light in color payoff. Sometimes I just don't want a dark, stark eyeliner! It's good for that! I would buy this again in a heartbeat!
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve

This is so over rated! It contains petroleum which will dry your lips out so fast! Take note if you have this, on how many times you reapply. If you like this though, pure old Vaseline is just like this hyped up balm. It just isn't for me. There are far better lip balms out there that perform. This just doesn't.
