Lipstick -Make Up For Ever - Rouge Artist Intense #40
hoykirsten 4/22/2013 10:26:00 PM
This lipstick is a fiery shade of orange... which is lovely, but boy, does this bad boy feather and settle into lip lines! If you don't have a bright lipliner to match this, skip it. However, if you're a touch-up girl throughout the day, you should consider getting it. It's an orange color like no other. I suggest exfoliating and moisturizing your lips prior to your face make-up application, followed by lining your lips and applying this for staying power. I probably wouldn't buy this again, only because I have to constantly worry about the feathering and awkward product chunking on my lips. But then again, I am a worry wart.
Blush -Chanel - Les Tissages de Chanel - Blush Duo Tweed Effect

This product is fantastic! I am new to Chanel blushes, and this definitely did not disappoint. I bought this in tweed corail (it's a coral-ish peachy red with golden flecks and sparkles are that very magical indeed). the brush it comes with is sufficient to apply onto the cheeks, but as someone mentioned before, it is prickly. the texture is lumpy, which is different and interesting. when I wear this blush, it gives me a VERY natural blushing effect that is matte and slightly shimmery (in a nice warm, golden way) at the same time. IMO, you should at least check it out at the counter. all the shades are beautiful. BTW, i took off one lippie for the ridiculous chanel pricing. :]
I really love the gummy bear scent of this shampoo! The conditioner as well. It really helps with my frizz, although I guess you could say that I don't have too much to worry about since my hair is pretty much straight. The thick consistency of the shampoo is great IMO; it forces you to massage your scalp, encouraging hair growth. I like it despite the bad reviews.
Lipstick -Flirt - High Wattage Intense and Creamy LipColor

I have this lipstick in the color WICKED and it is a lovely shade of red on me (with a REALLY LIGHT HAND).. I took off a lippy for the fact that it wasn't very moisturizing, but that shouldn't keep you from trying it.
Lip Gloss -Flirt - Plushious Liquid Velvet Lipcolor

I really like the color I have of this, FIRE&SPICE, but the other color I have, FLIRT ALERT, is a bit too intense for me. however, the quality of the lipgloss itself is great. I really only have to complain about the packaging quality. when you pull out the wand, a huge gloop gathers together near the top of the wand, making appliction a bit messy. I keep having to wipe it off with my finger, or else it becomes bigger for the next application.
VERY NAICE. with the"a". it made me feel classy. like a woman from the 1940s or 1950s. the red is shiny and glossy, and super high-quality.
I think this product is generally nice. i really like the minty sensation and how it glides on. i even like the color i have, rhubarb. HOWEVER, i only give it four lippies due to fact that mine seems to crush very easily, and once it has been twisted up, you can't twist it back down. right now mine's got little icebergs chunks at the top. it still doesn't change the fairly fab outcome, though.
Awesome color range, nice texture. Edit: The eyeshadows are finely milled, and the shimmers tend to have a sort-of creamy feel... which makes it very blendable. However, if you are not a fan of glitters, BEWARE of UD's sneaky glittery shadows. I hate fall out and their glitters are serious. Otherwise, give UD a go! They are cruelty free!
not that good. not good at all, actually.
Lip Treatments -SoftLips - Cherry Lip Protectant/Sunscreen SPF20

doesn't moisturize for a long time, but i like the slim packaging and the cooling sensation. the only problem have with it is the fact that when i put it on, it takes me approximately 2 minutes since i'm trying to get a thicker layer on my lips. no big deal.
This doesn't clump as promised, but this seriously can't hold a curl. maybe it's because i've got stubborn asian eyelashes. it's good with definining, but it doesn't lengthen or volumize a lot. eh.
