Blush - Aromaleigh - Epitome Blush [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Apr/29/2010

This blush is fabulous! It's very pigmented, so a little goes a long way, and it lasts for most of the day on me. The swatch looks dull but the blush itself is true to the description: a luscious coral-inflected peach. It has a bit of subtle shimmer but it's not sparkly the way a lot of blushes are. The color looks REALLY natural on me, as if I naturally blushed a pretty peachy pink. It …Read more

Pressed Powders - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2006

After my Physician's Formula ran out, I didn't want to wait for it to go on sale again. I got Rimmel's decidedley un-pricey powder instead. The packaging is lame, but the product itself is worth more than it costs. It's great for setting makeup, and keeps my nose from turning oily. "Stay matte" stays true to its name and claim. It's also finely milled and …Read more

Stick - Max Factor - PAN - STICK

Mar/19/2006

I think I've found my HG foundation! I caught Pan-Stik on clearance without having seen the great reviews here. I love the format: it's so convenient and portable. The creme format is great. I have dry skin, save for the nose and chin, and Pan-Stik makes my complexion look great. I had trouble deciphering the shades with what seems like an arbitrary number system, but "Nude …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - Sea Angel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/11/2006

I wasn't going to get Sea Angel, but when I saw it IRL I knew I had to buy it anyway. It's a bright, unique color: light aqua. When I first applied it with a dry brush, I was unimpressed. A very light, highlighter-type shade with a bit of that underlying aqua tint. Not as bold as I like my e/s to be, and almost chalky in apperance. That's why there's a point lopped off. The …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - Exotic Berry

5.0

Mar/11/2006

I was so excited to see the spiffed up new Milani display at Walgreens! Exotic Berry caught my attention. It looks a lot less purpley than in photos. When put to the test, it didn't fail to delight. :) Applied dry the color payoff isn't phenomenal, but you still get a good, strong pink. I didn't pay too much attention, because it looks amazing when applied with a wet brush: …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - Java Bean (18) [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2006

LOVE IT! I'm so glad I finally picked this up- I needed some more neutrals in my life. Java Bean looks dark and gorgeous in the pan: a rich, chestnut brown infused with shimmer. On my pale lids, it cools down to a plummy medium brown with just the right amount of glitz. I find myself infusing it into SO many e/s looks: it's neutral enough to go with everything, but the undertones give …Read more

Eyeliner - RIMMEL - Soft Kohl - Chianti [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2006

The texture is great- when it says "soft", it really does mean soft- Rimmel's eyeliner just glides on smoothly, even for an eyeliner newbie like me. Staying power is not phenomenal, but it stays smudgeless for the better part of the day. On my PPP, somewhat cool-toned skin, Chianti shows up as a medium plum-brown, and turns completely purple on me if I put it on over violet …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - MILANI - Tinted Moisturizer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/29/2006

I wasn't going to buy this, because many of the reviews were so negative, but I saw it for less than $3 and decided to take a chance! Sadly I was disappointed anyway. I've tried using it a few times now and it's just no good. "Almond" looked way too pink for me (although I do have cool undertones, I'm very fair and adding pink fdtn. would just make me look very …Read more

Eye Shadow - Jane Cosmetics - eye zing in ROCK STAR

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/26/2006

When I saw "Eye Zings", I was disappointed. The colors all seemed very simple and average, without any interesting nuances. But I needed a light brown, and "Rock Star" looked like a good candidate. It's a light, neutral brown/tan, tinted very slightly towards the olive side of the brown spectrum, as opposed to being reddish. What you see in the pot is exactly what I get …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - Enchantment (07)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2006

This stays true to the Milani standard of high quality and interesting, non-standard colors. Milani shadows tend to stay flawless and creaseless on me for about ten hours. Impressive, especially for one of the lowest prices in the drugstore! In the pot, Enchantment is a rich violet with an irredescent blue sheen. Gorgeous, if intimidating to those that want to use shadow for everyday looks. That …Read more
