Absolutely stunning selection of shades in this palette. Some of the colors are basic nude, great everyday shades, while others I would consider to be more smokey neutrals. The color combos are limitless and the quality is incredible. Minimal fall-out, buildable pigmentation, and impressive longevity. For $8, this is an unbelievable drugstore palette. Looking forward to trying the other Rimmel …Read more

Lipstick - TOM FORD - Lip Color - Blush Nude

4.0

Blush Nude is exactly that; a beautiful pinky-beige nude that is very creamy, surprisingly long lasting, and leaves a satiny finish. I find myself reaching for this color often, but the price is so outrageous, that I will not repurchase once I completely use it up. I understand that TF lipsticks are luxury items, but I still wish they were more affordable because there are other lipsticks in …Read more

I have a sample of this product, and it's the best primer I've ever used. I load up on bronzer and blush in the morning because it's gone by the end of the day, but when I use this primer, I have to tone it down. Even over foundation and powder, the bronzer and blush doesn't fade. I was wearing a lot of bronzer/blush earlier this week, and I was like wow, I'm wearing so …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme - Cherries In The Snow

I love this lipstick color. Very flattering for cool-tones, as it is a blue-based pinky red. This will look great on warm tones, too, but it will pull more pink. The formula and texture of this lipstick is fantastic. This lipstick doesn't migrate, even without a liner. It glides smoothly onto the lips, but can leave a stain as it wears. I think a lot of red or darker-hued lipsticks do that. …Read more

Mascara - Bobbi Brown - Smokey Eye Mascara

The good news is that I don't like this $31 mascara as much as I like my cheap Covergirl Lash Blast. The bad news is that I spent $31 on it.
Pros:
Smooth, creamy texture with no clumping, even after multiple coats
No "spider" lashes
Doesn't dry out
Natural-looking volume (may be a con for some)
Easy to remove

Cons:
Price $$$$$
The …

Dry Shampoo - Clairol - Herbal Essences Blue Ginger Refresh Dry Shampoo

1.0

This is one of the best smelling dry shampoos I've ever used. It smells clean, not fruity or heavily perfumed. This goes on very wet (weird, even after vigorously shaking the can), with no residue, but unfortunately, it doesn't absorb any oil in my hair. I used it this morning before I left, and my hair looked oily by by the time I got to work. I don't mean a little oily, but …Read more

Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - ROUGE PUR COUTURE Lipstick Collection

I purchased Le Nu #70. The color is advertised as a nude and looked good in Sephora, but in natural lighting it's not nude. It's a light pink color. Its semi-sheer and the formula is slick and greasy, so it wears off quickly. The only pro is that it's not drying, but that oily, salad dressing feeling never goes away. Also, the packaging is lightweight and plastic. For $38 USD, I …Read more

Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick - Pillow Talk

This lipstick is a beautiful, beautiful color on the lips. It's the MLBB shade I've been searching for. Perfect nudey-pink on my cool-toned skin, but...it is very drying. Not an uncomfortable drying, but more of a sneaky drying. It feels smooth and good on the lips at first, but then an hour later it it sinks into the grooves of your lip lines, and it ain't pretty. If you want to …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/20/2018

This mascara is really nice for definition, lengthening and a little volume. It doesn't clump or dry out quickly, so you can use it daily with predictable results. It's decently smudge proof, though I sometimes get a little dotting under my eyes from my bottom lashes. The only drawbacks are the ridiculous price, and that it's incredibly difficult to remove. I use micellar water …Read more
