I'm very happy with my purchase of this concealer. ULTA originally was out of stock in my shade, but I did ultimately acquire it on July 5, and have used it daily since then. For reference, it retails for $23.00 for a 0.03 oz/1g stylo pen. Mine was purchased in store (vs online). I am in the Warm shade range and color CP1. This concealer is encased in a click pen style wand that dispenses …Read more

I try to give a mascara a lengthy trial (i.e. several initial months) before forming a judgement, so am now on to my second tube at the time of this review. To get the "bad" out of the way: let's just say, that the rap that this mascara dries out and is therefore rendered useless before the 3-month watermark is true. The first tube I purchased never saw 3 months before the formula …Read more

In my attempt to wean myself from my perpetual use of black-only on the bottom eyelash line, I've turned to this Powerpoint liner. Now, while I have had it in my collection for some time, it has only recently become a daily part of my go-to look. It seems to work with just about any eye scenario I have going on for the day, whether with neutrals or colorful looks. Admittedly, it will not …Read more

I love this fragrance! There is something so very sensual and grownup about it, exactly what I was looking for in a scent. After first trying this in the edt version and finding it lacked staying power with my particular chemistry, I gave the eau de parfum a go. Instant love affair. My bf approves, and this one is simply beautiful and long-lasting on my skin. I missed out on the Xmas special …Read more

Hold the phone! I completely agree with the other review of this foundation. I was prepared to not like it, but besides its iffy pump applicator, I can't quibble with anything about this product. (Alright- one other thing: its beautiful pink opaque tube prevents you from seeing exactly how much is left in the 1 oz. cylinder.) I am a neutral/yellow-based skin tone, on the pale side (think …Read more

This is an item that had I listened to the MAC SA I would never have picked up. Indeed, when I first swatched it in the store there was none to buy and i was heavy-handed with my first try at its application. It certainly appeared, and is, too dark for me as an overall all through the brow color. Though i am a very dark brunette, it looked garish applied that way. Despite the definite …Read more

So impressed with this. I never would have thought to try this liner before I saw a YT video featuring it; but as I am always looking for bargain-friendly beauty products I decided to try it. Typically kohls, summertime and hot weather don't mix in my mind, so I admit to being skeptical initially. Therefore, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Taupe has some serious staying power. I …Read more

Long time staple in my makeup regimen. As a dark brunette, this crayon deepens my brows back to my desired shade. If you are heavy handed with it, yes, the results will be unfortunate. However, with light penciled strokes and a grooming both before and after this product give a beautiful and very natural result. The only issue I had to work out initially was what powder shade to pair it with as I …Read more

Candy Apple is the only Revlon lip butter I have tried, to date. I caved after hearing the glowing reviews and YT testimonials, choosing the color I felt I would wear the most. I love a good red lately and have been wanting to try something that was moisturizing but would still show up. Candy Apple reads on my lips as a true soft red. It is sheer but vibrant enough to be seen, either on its own …Read more

If you like a bright lipstick do not be afraid of this one. It's a hot as a chili pepper red shade that looks intimidating in the tube but is so very flattering on. Complimentary MAC liners I've tried are Brick and Redd (I prefer Brick with it, but then I like my liner to be slightly more pronounced/deep; Redd is a dead-on blend in match). I apply SI straight from the bullet as I do …Read more
