I love a warm & cozy vanilla scent for fall/winter. I bought this from a discount site after reading the description, and I was not disappointed. I love this scent! It's a simple, straightforward vanilla. Not as sugary-sweet as Philosophy Fresh Cream. It's fairly concentrated for a Philosophy fragrance (it's an eau de parfum) and it lasts all day on me. The first time I …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Naturale

Jul/29/2014

I’ve been looking for a worthy replacement for my beloved discontinued ‘L’Oreal Bare Naturale Mascara’ and I think I’ve finally found it! Even though the names are similar, this is quite a different mascara, though I like it just as much. This has a flexible silicone brush (that I’m not usually a fan of) that separates and lengthens. One coat just gives me natural-looking, long and fluttery …Read more

Love this. Hands-down my favorite red, and quite possibly my favorite polish in my collection right now. Other reviewers have done a good job describing the shade, it’s cool deep red that goes on a bit darker than it appears in the bottle. It’s hard to describe the appeal, it just looks good with anything and it’s what I reach for when I don’t know what to put on. I wear it on fingers and …Read more

Lips - Chapstick - Moisturizer Raspberry Creme

Oh my goodness...yum. I am obsessed with this Raspberry Crème Chapstick. I am probably up to about a half dozen tubes, I keep them stashed all over the place. I just love the raspberry-vanilla scent & taste. It is strong, so if that's not your thing, you've been warned. It just tints my lips a natural, neutral pinky-mauve color. It works equally as well on bare lips or …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Mariposa Palette (Sephora Exclusive)

May/10/2013

This is a lovely little palette, well worth the $15 I paid on the UD website. In fact, I will likely pick up another as a back-up or potential gift. I’m not big into palettes, as I have a nice collection of singles & duos I use regularly to create pretty much any makeup look I could want. But I am a ‘neutrals-with-a-pop-of-color’ kind-of girl, and I figured for 15 bucks this was worth a …Read more

Meh. I got this free with a beauty.com order, in the shade Pink 16. It’s not a shade I ever would have bought myself (I like deeper, sheer plums, mauves, and reds). The color is nice for spring, though. It’s a bubblegum-y pink with a slight shimmer/iridescence. It’s a nice, neutral pink that goes equally well with punchy brights or darker smokey eyes. The texure is nice, not really …Read more

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-In-1 Mascara

I like this mascara; it gives me just enough drama for everyday. It has a straight, standard-bristle brush with densely packed bristles. It goes on smoothly, layers easily, and doesn’t flake, clump, or smudge. I usually wear 2-3 coats for every day wear, and it makes my lashes look long, full, and curled. It removes easily and doesn’t irritate my eyes. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars …Read more

I <3 these lipsticks! I have 2 shades (#5 Intrigue and #4 Seduction, which is the perfect sheer blackberry) and I am seriously considering picking up all the shades in the line. I purchased these from drugstore.com on sale for about $7 a piece. As far as I know this is the only place they’re still available, as the Target stores by me didn’t have anything ‘Poppy King’. I am a fan of the …Read more

I’ve had this in my collection for a loooooong time, but its been untried since I have lots of similar shades, but I’m sorry I waited so long…I love it! What can I say, I love me a ‘90’s’ vampy, browned-red, and this is just perfect. Just enough red in it to keep it from looking too dark & ‘goth’ (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) but its still plenty rich, deep, and dramatic. …Read more

Lipstick - Vincent Longo - Lip Stain in Belle Etoile

Mar/04/2013

This is yet another VL lipstain lipstick that I like quite a bit. I purchased a bunch of shades for ridiculously cheap when SpaceNK was clearing out their Vincent Longo cosmetics. Belle Etoile is a deep, semi sheer reddish-plum. It’s the ideal mix of red, plum, and brown on me. It’s a bit more pigmented than some of the other shades I have, yet it still applies smoothly & evenly (to well …Read more
