Blush - MILANI - Baked Blush - Petal Primavera

I was so afraid to order this shade, yet I was drawn to it. I don't find it to be pink at all; to me it's a smooth (non-marbled) sandy peach, unlike the photo shown above. Nor do I see gold or shimmer, but instead a gentle satin finish. My heart dropped when I opened the package (I ordered from the website - can't find this shade retail anywhere near me).....it looked light, and …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo Longwear Cream Eyeshadow - High Roller

HIGH ROLLER is one of the new shades that are sold in same jar as before but boxed. Forget the website colors, and don't even upload a photo to "TRY IT ON" - what a joke, the colors are so off! HIGH ROLLER is a beautiful shimmery bronze. As my other shades are no longer new, I can't accurately compare the formula to the old one but this applies and blends perfectly with a …Read more

Emily Noel reviewed this as a dupe for CT's PILLOW TALK lipstick. I bought it and found it to be very flattering on me. I even duped the Pillow Talk eyeshadow palette with 4 of my jillion e/s pans. Love the lipstick - it's creamy and very pigmented. And, while swatching my lipstick stash, I discovered that SPICED PETAL is an EXACT DUPE for Revlon's Super Lustrous lipstick in …Read more

I love this shade and have been hoarding my tube for a long time! But I'm writing to say that FLOWER BEAUTY lipstick in SPICED PETAL is an EXACT DUPE. Absolutely identical!!! So if you miss Ginger Rose go buy Spiced Petal! I'm so pleased to find it!

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Professional 3-in-1 Waterproof Mascara

5.0

7 months ago

I live in deathly hot and humid Georgia and have found that these elements affect my mascara'd lashes. I've repurchased this W/P mascara several times and find it very effective for the following reasons:

1. I have very small, deep-set and hooded eyes that make it impossible to reach my lash roots with a thick mascara wand. This wand is narrow and I actually bend it into a …

Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - Gel eyeliner Granite ink

5.0

7 months ago

This is perfection for me. So now I'm really old with white/silver hair, but very dark brows and lashes. I saw the harshness of black liner for every day and so ordered Granite Ink. I have always loved BB's gel liners and have a bit of a collection. On my light-but-olive skin this is a totally NEUTRAL grey; not a trace of blue in it. Therefore it's much more natural looking to …Read more

Lip Liners - essence - Soft Contouring Lipliner - Soft Berry

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

I bought this shade to wear at my son's wedding. The reason I love it so is because it IS a "soft berry" - it doesn't turn magenta on me like so many other liners do! It applies beautifully and I now wear it to line and smudge around over a lip balm as a matte lip color. It lasts, it's a beautiful, rather natural deep shade that looks wonderful! I'll be buying a …Read more

Updated 3/28/19
I've lowered my score. I just can't with this! It's simply too fussy, too problematic, the shades too unpredictable. I purchased "LIGHT PEACH" yesterday and was again excited to try this under my eyes. Applied it this morning from the applicator and blended with my fingertips. IT LOOKS WHITE ON MY SKIN, but "WARM SAND" oxidized too dark …

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Hot Singles - Club Crawl

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

OMG! I've been on a no-buy for months and here is a perfect reason why: I found this, unopened, in my stash last night. I'm an old depotter and I remember buying several NYX matte singles at Ulta a few years ago - it seems I missed this one in the drawer. It looks matte in the closed case but has minute sparkles that show only in direct sunlight. This is SO LOVELY on my dark brown …Read more

I own several of these and other sizes by Coastal Scents, and I continue to buy them. They're cheap and absolutely effective. I'm not a professional MUA so I don't lug these around but for creating my own palettes these thrill me no end!
