Lip Gloss - REVLON - Lilac Pastelle 200 [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this product because I was looking for a Lavenderwhip dupe and because I was so discouraged after failed attempts with MAC's Ever So Rich and NYX's Power. To my surprise this gloss was fantastic. I have a red undertone and coppery skin so I have to be careful with lippies that are heavy on red and pink undertones because they look weird on me, but this lipgloss had a blue …Read more

Eyeliner - RIMMEL - Special Eyes Precision Eyeliner Pencil - Black Magic 161

I bought this product on accident thinking it was the eye kohl which I love and have been using for years and boy was I mistaken. Although the liner glides on smooth like its cousin ( the eye kohl) it smears and travels/ transfers like crazy. By the end of the night the liner I had on my top lid was in a smudged mess underneath my bottom lashes giving me a raccoon/ black eye look …Read more

Blush - Laura Mercier - Second Skin, Barely Pink

I have the second skin Cheek Colour in Plum Radiance and I really like it. Being an NW35 and having red undertones, blush tends to look really red or really dirty looking on me but this is the only color that seems to work. I love the smooth texture and it also works well as an eyeshadow. I wish it was a bit cheaper in price (25$ is a bit much for a 0.13 oz package), but it is well worth the …Read more

Concealers - Smashbox - High Definition Concealer

Jun/21/2010

I'm and NW35 in MAC and a Dark in the Smashbox concealer and I find that the Smashbox actually matches my skintone better. I like the watery consistency because it is sheer but if you need more coverage you can let a dab of it sit on your problem areas for a minute before blending and the consistency will thicken a bit allowing for a more full coverage. It works great under eyes and around …Read more

My favorite polish of all time is BLUE IT by SH in the Xtreme Wear Collection. It is the only polish of all my 100 or so polishes that I purposely bought multiples of. My nails produce a good bit of oil so most polishes chip on me by the end of the day whether I add a top and a basecoat or not, but SH is the ONLY polish that lasts a few days on me w/o chipping.

I have Essie, I have …

Jun/21/2010

I bought this product on sale for 1$ at a local store about 2 weeks ago and I've used it about 4 times.

The GOOD-
The product removed the polish from my nails the first time I used it.
The BAD-
The product took three times as long to remove my polish after the second use. I found myself having to firmly press down on the felt tip of the pen to remove the access …

I wear this product in the color deep and it is the perfect shade for my skin. I'm an NW35 in MAC and for all of you NW35 ladies you know that foundation for us can be tricky because we have a heavier reddish undertone and often times foundation can make us look pasty/ ashy if the undertones of the foundation are too pink, or too yellow.

This foundation gives me a flawless finish …

Polishes - China Glaze - Blue Sparrow

I may anger some people with my review, but I have to say that I honestly wanted to love this polish and the color is gorgeous, but the formula is terrible.

First I applied a clear base coat and then applied blue sparrow. It took about 3 applications before it became opaque. The finish is matte so it dried quickly and I was able to apply my top coat and clean up my edges with no staining in less than 20 minutes. I thought that it could use an extra sparkle so I applied a layer of Pure Ice's Strapless which made this nail polish look fantastic. I actually loved the look and loved how it glistened in the sunlight.

HOWEVER... As the day went on and I was doing my daily routine, I noticed what looked like a fake nail laying on my floor. I picked it up thinking …

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Turkish Delight

Jun/21/2010

Pros-
I'm an NW35 and this gloss very much compliments my skin tone. It has a blue undertone which is a nice contrast against to the reddish undertone in my skin. I really like the consistency of the gloss because it is light and not sticky. It doesn't seem to have much of a smell to me and the packaging is sleek and chic.

Cons- The product doesn't have enough …

Eyeliner - NYC New York Color - Eye Liner Pencil in 921A (Black)

This liner is an absolute horror! It was harsh on my eyes, often tugging at my skin as it drew. It crumbled apart almost everytime I tried to draw lines creating a dotted line affect. I would recommend skipping this liner and trying Rimmel or something else instead. It is NOT worth the dollar.
