Blush - Yves Saint Laurent - Blush Variation #11

I truly enjoyed using this project. Reviews below say it's a rose pink and a bronze. I think the "pink" is slightly more purple and the bronze is slightly more brown - to me it the blended result was similar to NARS Sin - with a tad more bronzing quality. I also found this project very useful because I've tended to go for bronzer in lieu of blush lately and this filled the …Read more

Liquid - Vincent Longo - Liquid Canvas Healthy Fluid Foundation

I was lucky enough to find this at Ulta on clearance. Warm Beige #4 was a great match for me (usually LM TM nude, GA LSF 5.5, MAC NC25). The coverage was just right and was on the matte side, as you would fully expect it to be, being billed as a "soft matte foundation" - but it wasn't movie makeup, falsely matte. It was comfortable and pretty. Overall I would recommended it.

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Sellout

Jul/24/2007

This is one of the prettiest e/s I've ever seen on - I'm a big fan of glowy/frosty light non-glittery lid shades. After accumulating WAY too much e/s over the years, I slowly but surely managed to use up some of my eyeshadows, including my fave UDs, without repurchasing. I got older, needed less glitter and funk. I plodded along using up more of my e/s stash, successfully curbing more …Read more

Lip Treatments - Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick (no tint)

Jul/24/2007

This is the only item I buy, use up, and repurchase religiously. MAC's Nylon e/s is up there but I can at least go a few months trying out other items before I repurchase Nylon. As soon as one EA 8 hour cream in clear is gone, I have to get another. I prefer the clear because I can safely put it on without a mirror (for example, the "blush" color can def. look off on my skintone …Read more

So I became acquainted with this product in the BeneFit Realness of Concealness palette. Actually, despite lusting after the palette for weeks, the Lemon Aid and the Boing are the only ones I actually wound up finishing. The mini-tubes were put up for swap. <br><br>
I became really pleased with Lemon Aid - despite having acquired UD's Primer Potion around the same time, I …

I'm really disappointed. I really like Definicils but haven't used it in a few years, buying and trying, buying and trying, buying and trying new lenghthening mascaras. I thought I could trust Lancome b/c of their track record for decent mascaras IMO but this does nothing at all to lengthen. It doesn't do much of anything at all. I'll try it with a primer I suppose, after …Read more

Fragrances - ANNA SUI - Ooh La Love

May/17/2004

I think this is pretty new-- I picked it up at Bloomingdales in SoHo and they said the actual launch would be next week.

I gravitate towards heavier, sweeter scents (Belle de Minuit, Hanae Mori) but haven't been wearing them now that the weather has gotten warmer. This fits the bill for a non-floral summer fragrance. Once applied, it smells immediately of grapefruit. Maybe …

HOLD. THE. PHONE... Ladies, this color is amazing. It is now my 2nd fave UD e/s and that's saying a lot! It's a beautiful, not too obvious, but intriguingly stunning warm light bronzey gold with a (green?) flash to it. It looks heavenly on. I have to keep my eyes off my eyes in the rearview when this is on. It has the most beautiful texture that I love UD for the most. Really, really …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Baked

Holy bronze! This is far superior to MAC Mythology, and is pretty much the exact same color. It's an I-N-T-E-N-S-E shimmer color-- but no glitter and stays put forever. The texture is divine. When I first saw this color, I thought it was too intense a color for eyes, but since I saw the light, I love it. It is one of my new faves and looks awesome with blue eyes!

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Stray Dog

STRAY! dog... This is a great basic brown eye pencil. I tend to gravitate more towards shadow-as-liner liners but this pencil is great for basic, quick, long wearing line. It's a great complement to a whole slew of my neutral-to-brown-to-purple shadows. For anyone looking for a basic brown, get it. I think you'll like. : )
