Like many of you, I thought this was a very cool toned palette at first glance. Then the reviews started coming in and people were noting how it was a lot warmer than it looked, but not as warm as the Nude mini palette. This really intrigued me so I ordered it. Even when I first opened it, it looked on the cooler side. Once I tested it, I realized the truth about this palette. It is an …Read more

I apologize in advance as this may not be the most contructive review, but I need it for my records. Benefit Erase Paste has long been discontinued as well as it's new reincarnation Benefit Boing Brightening. So at 45, I have to start my HG concealer quest all over again after decade. I am not happy. This concealer was one of the first attempts at replacing it. But I have decided it …Read more

This is NOT Erase Paste repackaged. They made a huge mistake when they tossed the original Erase Paste for this stuff. And now this stuff is discontinued. I just finished my last EP an went to my "it's the same" back up of this. IT IS NOT! It has less coverage and sticks to my brush way more than EP ever did. It feels more "hydrating" ish but it does not do crap. …Read more

I got this in a mini set from Sephora a while back (like years). I am neutral leaning nw20, deep winter, brown/hazel eyes, 3n hair. I LOVE this red. Sadly it is always sold out on the Besame site. I hope they still make it and it just sells out fast. It is right up there with my other favorite reds, Revlon Fifth Avenue Red (LE) & VGI The name of this lipstick pretty accurately …Read more

Hey Frenchie is my second of the Love Me lipsticks (Bated Breath was my first). These are niiiiiiiccce. On my nw20, deep winter complexion (3n hair, brown/hazel eyes), Hey Frenchie comes off as a deep rosey pink mauve. It seems to have the perfect blend of all the components of a mauve. "Mauve" is such a great yet complicated color. I have seen colors dubbed "mauve" that …Read more

I am quite a fan of these new Love Me lipsticks. They feel so nice. It feels like if a Creamsheen and Lustre had a baby, I love these. Bated Breath was my first one. It is a plum (more warm than cool, medium toned, not too pink or purple toned, but that deep reddened brown plum feel). It looks like a deeper, work friendly MLBB on me. It reminds me of MAC So Select, but the plum tones make it …Read more

I am an nw20, deep winter, brown/hazel eyes, 3n hair. Warm Soul is one of those shades that you always hear about, but I always thought would not work on me. I had the same vibe on MAC Melba at first. A year or so ago, I tried MAC Melba finally for the first time and it blew me away. It has be become my one and only used blush 95% of the time. So I thought it was time I get over myself and …Read more

This was my free birthday gift from Ulta in 2019. I received a mini size. It is a faded warm pink / nude shade. On my nw20, deep winter complexion, 3n hair, it is a NUDE. It is not MLBB. It hovers between "nude" and "concealer lips". A barely there color to take all attention off of my lips. It is also matte. On me, just blended my naturally rosy lips into my face with …Read more

I have been putting off writing a review for this because I am not excited about this product yet, but it deserves 5 lippies. It does everything it says and more. It is a great under eye setting powder, especially for those tackier concealers and/or those of us with aging eyes. It does subtly brighten the under eye area and looks soft and refined and not too heavy. And here is my favorite part …Read more

I have to add to the reviews here. Tolede ran so under the NARS radar. It is one of those lippies you don't hear a lot about, but it is lovely. NARS describes Tolede as a "pink rose" which is about accurate. It is warm toned but not overwhelming on cooler complexions. If you put on Dolce Vita and thought, "that's it?", then try Tolede. Same MLBB type of feel but …Read more
