Lipstick - KANEBO - Lunasol Intellectual Lips Full Glamour

2.0

Jun/03/2008

Eek.

I love Lunasol, I really really really do - but I am not keen on this lipstick.

I have it in four colours. I find the texture quite hard, and not very pigmented. I was dying for Pink Beige so much and I barely use it now - it just isnt quite as glossy, plumping, juicy as I had hoped. I paid $40 so I expect it!

Lip Gloss - Bourjois - 3D Effect - Les Nudes - 33 Brun Poetic

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2008

I don't tend to buy high street brands, but I did absolutely love the look of the Bourjois Les Nudes range.

I saw this shade, 33, a very cool beige, then a cool pink, then two very glittery orange and glittery pink.

I immediately loved shade 33 for the nude effect. It is very sparkly (silver coloured) and is great for a natural lip. It is quite a thick gloss, fairly …

Lip Gloss - Dior - Creme de gloss beige elixir (611)

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/08/2008

I didn't like this at all!

Even though it comes in a beautiful case, and the texture is nice and creamy, non drying, I didn't feel enough wow factor from this.

I know, its supposed to be somewhere between a lipstick and a gloss, but to me, it was lacking in any true shine; it sort of looked dull in my opinion.

This shade too, I thought would be a true …

Primer/ Corrector - RMK - Control Color in Silver Pearl

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/21/2008

I've had RMK Makeovers a few times, and the product that gives me an extremely glowy look is this product. What I like about it is, that is doesn't make skin look to pale and it is very watery. I have Shu Colour Enhancer, Shiseido, Chanel, Laura Gellar, Stila, and these are ALL to thick to be natural.

This gives a fab glow and works well with my NC35 skin. There is a …

Eye Shadow - SHISEIDO - Hydro-Powder Eye Shadow (All)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2008

I adore Hydro Powers as they have the most gorge shimmer and non creasing abilites.

I like the spring colours even though they are pastelly and all lights.

I am very fond of Lemon Sugar especially and Rose Tulle, but they are very much base colours as they lack pigmentation.

Languid Lagoon is gorgeous! But I think the colours they have released are not brand …

Eyeliner - NARS Cosmetics - Liquid Liner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/26/2007

Nars Eyeliner is fabulous when used well...but I must admit, it is not the easiest thing to use. The formula can be thick (weather permitting), and I live somewhere cold so it takes a bit of warming up. I leave them upside down so that when I use it there is always some product in the lid to dip into.

The brush you get with it is utterly useless. A push brush is better with this …

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - The Multiple - Copacabana

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2007

Ermmm....

I don't know. I just don't know.

I have five multiples and first became obsessed with Palm Beach, even though it gave me spots on my cheek.

Copacobana is my newest purchase because I thought the silvery highlighter is a real staple in any kit. However - I can't help thinking that it is very similar to a number of silvery highlighters that …

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Big Bang

4.0

Nov/23/2007

Oooh I said when I tried this on my hand.

Ooooh indeed.

Look, I have a million lipglosses, I certainly don't need anymore. But there's something about this gloss - it is totally shimmery and a sheer red-pink on my pigmented lips that just looks lush. It has a nice texture (though not long lasting) and really gleams in these cold winters!

This is NOT a …

Eye Shadow - Stila - floating eyeshadow pink drizzle

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/29/2007

I have this shade and also in Gold Dew and Peach Splash. They are nice and watery, but when applied I found that they are all basically a pale shimmer. There are plenty of products that do this but leave a veil of colour, like Paul & Joe eye glosses, or Vissee or Beaute de Kose cream eyeshadows. This is a really disposable product unfortunately.
