The color in the tube should be perfect for me, but this product is so hard and dry, I can't even swatch a clean line on my hand. Not only did it break when I tried, it's so hard it won't even deposit a line of color when I'm grinding it on! I even tried warming it with a hairdryer to see if it would soften enough to give it a try, but even that failed to get a decent result …Read more

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Beaute Basics Eye Crayon in Sahara Gold

Oct/01/2016

This is an inexpensive brand that showed up in an Ipsy bag, but I love it! The color adds a golden sheen on top of any eyeshadow and works beautifully to brighten the inner corners of the eye and above the lash line. It has great staying power and doesn't crease. But best of all, it has proven to be a real gem when I lose the brightness of my first lid shade after too much blending. This …Read more

Bronzers - Unlisted Brand - Be a Bombshell Baked Bronzer in Heat Wave

My pale, cool tones almost never work with bronzer. Even high-end bronzer often makes my skin look dirty or orange. This one is super inexpensive, so imagine my surprise when it turned out to be the best I've ever tried! And I usually hate shimmer! It adds a subtle warmth that could be a natural kiss of sun and the shimmer manages to enhance your look without drawing attention to itself …Read more

Lip Gloss - ModelCo - Lip Lacquer Lip Gloss (all)

This is my new go-to gloss in Morocco, a perfect lightly toasted pink that's a little sheer and somehow amplifies my lip volume better than anything else I've used. It just has a dimensional quality that's hard to find. The staying power is typical for a gloss, but it's inexpensive and worth reapplying. Doe-foot applicator.

Eyeliner - IT Cosmetics - No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner (black)

True to its name, this eyeliner glides without tugging. I've never had anything go between lashes so beautifully, and that makes it perfect for tightlining the upper lid. The color is rich and dark, but the product is too soft to hold a point or draw a sharp line. That's easily fixed by coming back with a sharper eyeliner at the lashline if you don't mind the extra step. The …Read more

This is a great highlighter, but only fair as a concealer unless your discoloration problems are fairly mild. For me, it is great after a good night's rest, but on bad days, it only improves my dark moons moderately.

A big plus is that it doesn't settle into creases and the highlighting effect is subtle but excellent. No sparkles, no washed-out whiteness, no oily-looking …

I'm using the Bimatoprost from All Day Chemist. I've been using it for 31 days, and the results are amazing. I've always had reasonably long lashes but lacked some fullness, and they were never as long or lush as I wanted. I usually use half-demi falsies for evening, just to make them pop.

But now? Ohhhh my gosh. I've changed mascaras because length is no longer an …

Absolutely gorgeous bright modern-retro pink/coral! Goes opaque, shiny and smooth in 2 coats and is one of the few pinks that doesn't make my cool tones look sallow, though it does have a coral tone to it, which usually doesn't do well on me. Bright enough to make toes look fun and summery, but grown-up enough for stylish nails at the office. This reminds me of a shade my grandmother …Read more

I had to give this a 5 because it is the ultimate daytime neutral for me. I got so many compliments on this shade! I'm PPP N4, and generally don't do well with things that are too warm or too yellow. Luckily, this one is truly neutral, but not overly brown, which would not be good on me.

It gives good coverage and true color in 2 coats, but it would be easier to apply …
