Mascara - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/03/2010

I am a bit of a mascara junkie! This definitely falls into my top 3 mascaras - along with MAC Plushlash and YSL Faux Cils. I am addicted to mascaras that give me long, lush, voluminous lashes. This provides excellent volume and length, and never once clumping or flaking. I definitely see the thickening and lengthening properties of this mascara, but I am most blown away by the amount of curl that …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize - Gilt by Association

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/01/2009

This is one of the only mineralized eye shadows that MAC has released that I love. It is a black eye shadow with brown/gold veining. Surprisingly, I don't have a problem with fallout with these shadows. My favorite way to wear this eye shadow is to wear it over a Greasepaint Stick or over NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil in French Fries. I apply either one of those over my UDPP and let it dry. I …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sephora Collection - Professionnel Platinum Air Brush #55

Nov/03/2009

Forget applying foundation with a wet or dry sponge. Forget using your fingers for foundation application too. Forget the typical paddle foundation brushes. Forget the 109's, the 187's, the 188's, the 138's, etc... This, I can honestly say, will be the last foundation brush that I buy!! I've already purchased 3 of them because I hate washing brushes daily, but with having …Read more

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Autograph Eyeliner - Immortal Love

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/02/2009

This is my HG brown liquid eyeliner! It is a deep matte brown that is very versatile. I have found that I can wear a thin line of Immortal Love during the day and it doesn't look too harsh. I have also found that I can make a thicker line at night and it looks amazingly smokey! This is the only liquid eyeliner that my cousin will use because she is so fair. The brush is thin, so it is easy …Read more

Moisturizers - Bobbi Brown - oil control lotion spf 15

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2009

This is another "oil control" lotion that has been a big fail in my book. Let me first start off by saying that I have very oily, acne-prone skin. When I try "oil controlling" lotions, gels, creams, etc... I don't have unrealistic expectations of staying matte all day. The only thing that I expect them to do is to not make me any oilier than I already am. Bobbi …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2009

I absolutely love this exfoliating wash! I think many people confuse this with a traditional scrub. It is meant to be used as a facial wash, in the morning, on a daily basis, as it lightly exfoliates. I have recently developed a lot of sensitivity and I don't worry about irritating my face when I use this exfoliating wash. Exfoliating has made me nervous lately since the sensitivity is …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Bobbi Brown - Eye Brow Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2009

I don't know how I ever applied eyebrow powder without this brush! This bristles are super firm and synthetic. This brush should not be used anywhere else on the face because it will hurt. However, this applies the perfect amount of eyebrow powder every time. What is the best part of this brush? It blends out the powder as you apply it so that it looks the most natural!!! Fear not, if you …Read more

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/05/2009

If you're looking to get a liquid liner that is easy to apply, rich in color, and stays put, then this liner is for you!! Liquid liner is one of the toughest aspects of eye makeup to master. It is so hard to master because liquid liner shows every little mistake. With Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner, it is in pen form and makes application easier. The shape of the pen makes it so simple to …Read more

Body Scrubs - Philosophy - Amazing Grace Perfumed Hot Salt Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/19/2009

Okay 23 ounces for 25 bucks! This is the cheapest scrub at Sephora if you look at it in terms of size. You cant even get a drugstore scrub for less, and the grains in this are nice and rough gritty salt. I love Philosophy scrubs because they are glycerine based so they are hydrating, but don't leave your shower slippery. This leaves your skin silky smooth and doesn't make you slip in …Read more

Foundations - Eve Pearl - High Definition Dual Foundation with CosmeNutrients

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2009

Eve Pearl has really made a great foundation that can be used very lightly for someone who doesn't have much to correct, or can be used with a heavier hand for someone who has a lot of discoloration to conceal and still look natural. I have a lot of dark purple post-acne hyperpigmentation on my cheeks to cover and this product covers them so perfectly that I don't even need to follow …Read more
