Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Blush - Fresh Honey (Naturally Coll. 2012)

3.0

Feb/24/2012

Fresh Honey is a "warm apricot". As other ladies have said, this blush is VERY powdery! Just the slightest touch of your brush to the blush and there are loose flecks everywhere. Getting this color to look decent on my NC25 skin is a delicate balance of applying the blush then blending it in and buffing it out to look more natural. This isn't my favorite MAC blush, but it does give …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Espresso

Mmmm Espresso! I LOVE the name of this shadow! :) I haven't had the courage to use this as an all over lid color as it's fairly dark and very matte. I wear this occasionally on my outer v along with a beautiful gold, bronze, peach or lighter brown. I bought this for $15 at the MAC counter in my local Dillards. Probably would not repurchase, as it will take me years to hit pan. The …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Naked Space lipglass - Neo Sci-Fi

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2012

Naked Space is a warm nude with a little shimmer. It applies pretty sheer and streaky at first, but can be built up to a opaque, polished look with a couple layers. This product has a distinct smell, I can't quite describe it, but I wouldn't consider it pleasant. Average wear time. I may repurchase this in the future, but plan to try some other colors in the Lipglass line first.

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Dame

5.0

Dame is an understated cool-toned, medium pink on my NC25 skin. It gives a soft, healthy glow to my cheeks. It applies very sheer and takes several layers to get a color even remotely similar to the color in the pan. If you're looking for a statement blush, skip this one. Dame creates a very natural (but very beautiful) look. As with the other six (and counting) MAC blushes I own, this has …Read more

Fragrances - Calvin Klein - CK One

3.0

Feb/14/2012

Just got this, and, in my opinion, it smells as if I just got done making a limeade using fresh limes (which I do not mind). CK One is a very light and soft scent if you walk into the mist after spraying into the air. Multiple sprays or dousing your skin or clothes with it would absolutely be overkill, probably induce a nasty headache and be very offensive to those around you. Definitely smells …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Harmony

I had originally intended to buy MACs Cubic, but the makeup artist at Dillard's suggested Harmony for my NC25 skin instead. So thankful she did and that I now have this amazing color in my collection! I love that, even though I use it as a blush (not bronzer), it brightens my entire face and gives the illusion that I have a great sun-kissed glow. I also love how versatile this product is; it …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear [old formula - REFORMULATED]

2.0

Oct/24/2011

I liked pretty much everything about this foundation...except for the fact that it broke my face out. Loved the coverage, staying power, and how well Linen matched my skintone, but having pimples on my face is NOT an option no matter how good the product makes me look. It is also pretty pricey ($37-something with tax). I took it back to Dillards today and will never repurchase.

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Blush - Dainty

Sep/16/2011

I just bought this yesterday, today is my first day to wear it and I'm already in love!! I own Gentle, Gleeful and Warm Soul (other mineralize blushes from MAC) and this is by far the most natural-looking shade on my NC25 skin. It gives a nice, noticeable flush to my cheeks while still looking VERY subtle and natural. It makes me feel so pretty and girlie. By looking at the color in the …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Blush - Gleeful

5.0

Aug/20/2011

I loved Gentle and Warm Soul from the mineralized line so much that I had to have this one too! I'm an NC25 and Gleeful is VERY flattering and wearable when applied with a light hand. Over-application is easily remedied with a layer of powder over it to buff it out and tone it down a little bit. I paid $23 for this at the MAC counter in Dillard's, but when you consider how long this …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Deluxe Eyeshadow - Ruthless

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2011

I love the NAME of this shadow, but the color payoff is something else. I have the Naked and Deluxe palettes, and 33 individual UD shadows and this is by far the worse color payoff of ANY of them hands down. I'm as pale as they come and it's barely visible on me. I was hoping for something similar to Maui Wowie (minus the glitter), but I'm taking this back and getting something …Read more
