Eyeliner - Lancôme - Artliner (All colors)

3.0

Aug/13/2014

This was my standard go-to before I mastered liquid liner. It has an ultra dark satin finish and a fairly easy applicator... before the thick-ish foam tip starts to disintegrate or peel off. I used this for several years before being brave enough to try other things, and since I've tried many liners since, I will not be purchasing this again.

The finest point of the liner …

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/13/2014

I've blown through three of these bad boys now. Its ingredient list is identical to both Stila's Stay All Day and Kat Von D's Ink liner, but somehow, this product trumps both.

The pen with microbrush packaging is nothing short of genius. Any look your little heart desires, from an elegant Audrey Hepburn kitten wing line to a bold Joan Jett eye is at your fingertips with …

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Liquidlast Liner - Point Black

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/13/2014

Point Black would be my favorite liner of all time if it wasn't for the packaging. The unwieldy long-cap and longer applicator combo make this a nightmare to apply more often than not. Prepare to constantly wipe your wand and the brush tip to get the gunk off. Because of this, the product often dries out and/or gets all gunky.

When you can get it to work, this product is AMAZING …

Eyeliner - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Push-Up Eyeliner

4.0

Aug/13/2014

This product takes some getting used to, but give it a chance! The following experience is based on my experience using a brand new pen on already oily lids without a primer on a humid NYC afternoon.

I went to Sephora to browse and came across this. Seemed like the usual BeneFit nonsense, all hype and packaging with no delivery, but I figured it was worth a shot since I was provided …

Eye Shadow - NARS Cosmetics - Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Aigle Noir

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2011

Firstly, I would like to say that if I had a favorite cosmetic brand, NARS would be it. Moving right along: this is one of the worst high-end cosmetic products I can remember trying in the last 10 years. And I have a great memory for this kind of thing.

I am helplessly attracted to on-the-go beauty products. I'm forever applying my makeup on the subway, in the backs of cabs, at …

Lip Gloss - Illamasqua - Sheer in Lily-Rose

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/28/2011

Lily Rose appears to be an almost violent shade of fluorescent red-pink in the tube, but applies as a beautiful, gentle popsicle-pink stained hue on the lips. If you apply a thicker than normal layer, Lily Rose(named after Johnny Depp's daughter, I'm fairly sure given Illamasqua's penchant for names) is a face brightening sheer cherry shade on my pale mauve lips. It's perfect …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Kiehl's - Abyssine Eye Cream

1.0

Jan/18/2011

This product is absurd. I got this because my cousin had some sample packets and had run out of her full-size jar, but wanted me to try some. She gave me one of her few.

I suggested that perhaps she should simply squeeze a packet into her empty jar to stretch it a little farther. Here's the kicker: one single free sample pack filled her empty jar half full. Huh? We stared at it in …

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Creme Anglaise

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2011

I've always thought LUSH was overrated and somewhat overpriced, but this product takes the cake.

I was shopping for gifts for a friend and a friendly sales associate came to help me. I don't remember how this came up, but I mentioned the types of things *I* like and she lead me to Creme Anglaise.

All she had to say was "saffron" and I was sold on trying …

Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes Rich

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2011

I got this as a present as a mistake-- I'd asked for All About Eyes, and was given All About Eyes Rich. I figured it couldn't hurt to try the thoughtful and generous gift, even if it wasn't what I thought I wanted, and I'm so glad I did!

When I was younger I worshiped my beauty maven cousin, who preached about excellent skincare from day one. Because of this …

Makeup Brushes - Pop Beauty - Double Duty Kabuki Brush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/13/2011

Travel/retractable brushes are seldom of very good quality. This brush is the exception.

It comes in an elegant, sleek, and sturdy matte metallic tube. Removing the cap reveals an exceptionally full natural hair brush. At first it's a bit too scratchy and smells like the factory, but several washes in a gentle soap solve these problems easily. This brush is a little too large for …
