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. But this blew VGI and Russian Red out of the water. It is right up there with my other favorite red, Revlon Fifth Avenue Red (LE). The name …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 MLBB on me. It reminds me of MAC So Select, but a the plum tones make it a bit more …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 slightly 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 …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

I usually double cleanse using a cleansing oil first, so these removers are not my sole plan in removing eye makeup. However, I love to have these around for when you need a little extra clean up. Maybe you still have a smudge of darkness after cleaning or you messed up something doing your eyes and need to fix quickly and easily. I have used this for years and finally decided to give the …Read more

This seemed like a popular item on the hair boards, so despite it not being technically color safe, I thought I would give it a go. Bottom line is ok shampoo...nothing special. I would never buy at full price. For me the biggest drawback with this shampoo is that it left my hair greasy on day two. I usually get a touch greasy by the end of day two, but I started day two greasy. It is just …Read more

Velvet Teddy is hard lipstick to review because this is one of those shades that depending on your lip tone, undertone, etc, it can look drastically different from person to person. The ones that seem to love it get a soft MLBB shade. Not too warm, not too cool. Other people when they put it on it can look almost like cooler toned mauve, perhaps ashy. Now when I put it on with my deep winter …Read more
